Episode 4.10 (Or: "Siblings and Spiders - Perfect
Together") - November
We've had couples brought by the bonds of love and
matrimony. We now have teams brought here by the bonds
of... sibling rivalry. It's the 'Siblings' version of
Fear Factor. Let's see what sort of brotherly (or
sisterly) love we have this week -
Mitchell and Jennifer Tannis (Las Vegas) know
each other's strengths and weaknesses, and nothing will
break their spirits! Rah! Rah! Rah!
Chris and Kelley Bromley (Philadelphia) say they
make a fantastic team, and they won't let each other
down! Rah! Rah! Rah!
Corinne and Mercedes Dalton (Las Vegas) are two
blondes that know what the other one is thinking. Oh
look - two blonde women - probably gone long before the
third stunt. But they do look like cheerleaders,
so...Rah! Rah! Rah!
David and Justin Deary (Douglas, MA) each think
that they are the better athlete over the other - but
one thing that they can do as a team - annoy the
beejeebees out of the rest of the teams! 'I don't care
what the other teams think of us - I just know that
we're walking away with the 50 g's). Rah! Rah! Rah!
CHALLENGE 1: No cheering is necessary for the
first stunt - but a lot of focus and concentration is.
The teams will be handcuffed to a pole attached to a
platform - which will be spinning as it is being flown
around via helicopter. The team that is the quickest in
terms of getting out of the cuffs and jumping into the
water below will pick the order of the teams for the
second stunt, while the slowest team will have plenty of
time to squabble about who's fault it was that made them
David and Justin start already, as they say that the
blond dames have an advantage because there is a pole.
Yah, but they don't go first - Mitchell and Jennifer do.
Mitchell uncuffs Jennifer, who promptly jumps in the
water - and leaves Mitchell up there all alone to uncuff
himself. That is a lousy strategy, because the idea
would be to have the person free uncuff the person still
stuck. That strategy, plus Mitchell fumbling at the end,
leads to a time of 1:01.9. Even Joe says that it can be
improved upon, and as Mitchell complains about getting
caught at the end, I have a feeling that they will be
caught - and cooked.
Chris and Kelley each have a Tibetan tattoo that says
'Family Strength', and Chris is going to gun to try to
get the stunt accomplished in 50 seconds. They talk
about them staying on the platform until they are both
free - which they don't do (maybe you can't do it,
according to the rules of the stunt) - but they do beat
their time with a sparkling 47.9 second score, and
Mitchell and Jennifer are visibly worried.
The blond twins live together, and they say they will do
everything together - including win together. They can
also get entangled up together, and their struggling at
the beginning of the stunt winds up costing them. Their
time - 1:06.0, which gets Mitchell and Jennifer off of
the frying pan, and puts themselves on the skillet...
...with the male trash-talking team left to sear them to
a golden brown. They both say they can get the stunt
done in 43 seconds, but they blame Chris if something
goes wrong. The other three teams, who are sick of them,
are hoping to, as the blondes encourage them to think
negative thoughts. It doesn't happen - the guys do get
it done in the self-prophesized 43 seconds, and the
blondes, as almost always, get to leave first - more
upset that they lost to, in their own words, 'the idiot
CHALLENGE 2: As the idiot brothers are
celebrating, the other 2 teams are conspiring to get rid
of them. Can they do it in the second stunt? Not as we
see the women's reaction a Joe unveils a set of plastic
boxes - with lots of spiders inside. One of the people
will be conveying a key from one cage to the other -
using their mouths. They will move the key out of the
cage, where the other person will unlock 4 locks that
are keeping their heads in the cage.
There is another reason why the brothers aren't leaving
after this stunt - no one is eliminated, but the winning
team will get a trip to Nassau in the Bahamas. This is
great news to Jennifer, who says that spiders are her
biggest fear and looks like she would rather hear the
boys talk about football with her than to get in that
It's Kelley and Chris that go first, and they set a time
of 2:14.4. They think it's a bad time, but it may be
great compared to Jennifer, who freaks out of the cage
and even Joe is stunned. She eventually gets her head
back in the cage, and maybe it's her sheer fear of
wanting to get the hell out of the cage, as they
complete the stunt, she goes running. Mitchell goes
running out as well, taking off his shirt and checking
for spiders. No spiders there, but perhaps the chance at
a trip, as they complete it in 1:41. Joe gives Jennifer
kudos for freaking out - but coming back to finish the
That's all the kudos that they get, though, because the
guys blow through it. They get it done in 58 seconds,
and they scream for joy while they are still in the
cage. The other two teams are pissed, and even Joe is
emotionless when he tells them that they are going to
CHALLENGE 3: The other teams have one more chance
to wipe the grin off of the boy's faces when the final
stunt features water. Both people are chained by their
ankles to a platform which is submerged in the water,
When they are down there, they have to unlatch 13
weights, and then pull down on a rope which stops the
clock. The team that does this the fastest wins the
Chris is wearing a Bahamas t-shirt. Motivation? Chris
says no, but they will wait as Jennifer and Mitchell go
first. Jennifer has to go up for air - but Mitchell
didn't need to take a breath and they set a very good
time of 36.6 seconds.
Chris and Kelley divvy up the weights and use a divide
and conquer strategy. Neither of them go up for air -
and that proves to be the difference as they complete
the stunt in 34.5 seconds. Jennifer and Mitchell are
out, but they said that the show brought them closer
But will that 34.5 seconds hold up against the guys, who
also should not have to take a breath? Chris and Kelley
are hoping for bragging rights. Joe underlines that they
can't afford to take a breath, and with that said, one
of them comes up for air. He gets tangled up in the
line, and he can't breathe. Panicking, he signals to
quit the stunt - right as the last weight is removed.
The guys were well on their way to beating the time, but
the disqualification gives the $50,000 to Chris and
Kelley, who are just as happy as they are shocked.
Best line of the night. 'America, I just lost $50,000,
because my little brother is an idiot'. Not only is he
an idiot (as the 'idiot brother' moniker used earlier
does come back in spades), but you can say that this is
the first team that loses because they pulled a
figurative - and literal - choke.
