Episode 4.21 (Couples 6) - February 7
Randy and Tina have a shocking exit. What could be
more shocking.... what's under the covers on the picnic
tables that the 4 remaining teams are staring at as they
come into the room. The good news is that whoever eats
the most of what's under the blanket will win a 2 week
trip to Belize and the Caribbean. The bad news is what's
under the blanket is...
Cod Egg Sac
and other varieties of fun stuff.
CHALLENGE 1: There is 6 pounds and 8 ounces worth
of the stuff. Whoever finishes first or the fastest gets
the trip AND selects the order for the elimination
stunt. After Joe tells everyone that it's a Plexiglas
dish, specialized so that the food can't escape (heh),
the couples start... er... Dean and Ashley start, while
the other couples quizzically look at the food.
While the women are complaining that they are going to
vomit, Dean and Ashley are still chowing down. Andre is
eating a lot - but Amirah is not helping. With 5 minutes
left, however, Dean quits, and that could be the break
that the other teams needed. Would they get it? Here's
Roberto and Leah ate...5 Ounces
Craig and Maria ate...3 ounces, and a squirt of roach
Dean and Ashley ate...1 pound, 2 ounces
Andre and Amirah ate...1 pound, 8 ounces! Andre and
Dean and Ashley finally get a loss and Andre and Amirah
finally win something. They rejoice while Dean is
looking sick - but you don't know if that's because he
is seething or because he's about to upchuck.
CHALLENGE 2: Some team will be throwing up and
away their chances at the million - and Andre and Amirah
think it won't be them, because they say they control
their own destiny. Here is what is going on,
destiny-wise - both people have to maintain their
balance via a rope as they maneuver their way down cable
cars to collect flags. The quickest team wins $10,000.
The slowest team - or the team that picks the least
amount of flags - takes the caboose home.
According to everyone's strategy, you pick the team that
is the strongest (or the one that they want to see go
home) to go first. Dean and Ashley have won almost
everything, and Dean and Ashley are considered the
favorites to win the whole thing, so Andre and Amirah
pick...Roberto and Leah. Wha?
Everyone is stunned, as Andre explains that they will
set a good time and put pressure on the other teams.
Roberto doesn't buy that for a second, and adds that the
team that goes first is usually the one that leaves.
Roberto takes it personally, adding that Andre and
Amirah want to see them leave - and they say that they
will take it out on the stunt. Apparently, they do,
because they get all 5 flags in 45.9 seconds.
Dean and Ashley are next up, and they now see the bar
that have been laid out for them. Ashley s glad that
Andre and Amirah won something, while Roberto would be
happy to see a disaster from Dean and Ashley. They blaze
through the stunt in 38.8 seconds, but....after grabbing
the third flag, Dean grabbed a hold of the beam to catch
his fall. That changes their score from 5 to 3 flags in
15 seconds, and it looks like Andre's strategy may have
paid off. At least Den and Ashley aren't complaining too
much - they are taking it professionally...sort of.
Ashley - 'I'm taking it well. It wasn't my fault.' OUCH!
Speaking of which, Andre and Amirah immediately decide
to go next. Andre is smirking, because all they have to
do is get three flags. First flag, no problem. Second
flag - a little shaky, but no problem. Third flag - no
problem. Fourth flag...no problem. Fifth flag, no
problem. Their time is...wait a sec. Like Dean, Amirah
also held on to the tressel, but she held on to
it...before getting the first flag. Andre and Amirah get
NO flags, as Amirah commits the dumb-ass move of the
Dean and Ashley think it's a miracle. Leah calls Amirah
a moron. Craig and Amirah just have to make sure that
they don't amputate themselves before the event
starts...and they don't. They don't beat Leah and
Roberto (as they collect another $10,000), but they stay
in the game, which is something that Andre and Amirah
don't do. Leah wants to rip herself a new one, but Andre
comforts her and says that it was a team effort. At
least they got the trip. Let's see what everyone else
$40,000, a set of Sony
Walkmans, a Jamaican vacation, a set of Jeep
Wranglers - and the finger from Randy
$30,000 and a trip to L.A.
$0 - but they are still in the competition
Week Trip to Belize - which they can take right now
- but they lost their shot at a million dollars -and
$10,000 - and ELIMINATED VIA SEWAGE
$10,000 - but they are ELIMINATED
$0 AND ELIMINATED. Sucks to be you
Next week - it's the
finals. Join us in 7 days to see who wins the million.
