All-Female - October 4
I don't want you to be a girlie man in this episode -
because we are dealing with nothing but girlies. These,
girlies, however, can kick your can - like Nicole
Busa (Shelton, CT - Waitress), who think that women
are more competitive than men. Colleen Brewster
(Ormond Beach, FL - Model) says that she can always push
herself further, while Krystina Crane (Las Vegas,
NV - Waitress), the lone African-American, says that the
only thing that the women have struggled with in their
life is putting highlights in their hair. Kelly
Hopper (Gatesville, TX - Hairstylist) has played
with the boys growing up, so she thinks she has an edge.
Harmony Oswald (Bedford, PA - Journalist) is
going to use friendliness as a weapon, while Danel
Laurence (Houston, Texas - Salesperson) wants to
prove to herself that she's a winner - and then rub it
in everyone's face after she wins.
CHALLENGE 1: We'll find out soon enough if she
has what it takes as we see a helicopter carrying a
platform. Your ankles and one of your wrists are
shackled to the platform. Using your unshackled wrist,
you need to free yourself and jump into the water. The 2
women with the slowest time are eliminated, while the
woman with the fastest time gets to pick the order for
the second stunt.
Harmony goes first, as
the women behind her are being catty, accusing her of
not having common sense. After a failed attempt of
reading the opening Fear Factor promo, Harmony is much
more successful getting off of the platform - 36.1
seconds. That seems like a good time...
Kelly is up next, and
Harmony, being a cheerleader, gives her a good luck
cheer. The cheer went well, maybe a little too well -
Kelly gets it done in 36 seconds, which means two things
- 1. the 36 second time isn't looking as good as
originally thought, and 2. Kelly should stop cheering
for her opponents.
Nicole gives here own
cheer - "Go Me!", and that works, as she gets it done in
28.7 seconds. She is the leader, while Colleen squeezes
in there with a time of 29.4 seconds. Now the 36 seconds
really isn't looking good, as either Danel or Krystina
can send the ladies home. Danel blows all of the ladies
time away with a 22.3 second score, and that send
Harmony (whose kindness spiel apparently didn't work)
back to trying to cover a Fear Factor script.
Krystina can send Kelly
off to join Harmony - and she does, as her time of 27.5
seconds is more than good enough to eliminate Kelly.
Danel still sets the order of the second challenge - and
she gets to decide the order of the customers at the
ROAD KILL CAFE'.
CHALLENGE 2: And
what food is waiting for them at the Road Kill Cafe',
you ask? Well, I'm glad you asked. The women may not be
too thrilled about it, especially since what's on the
menu is animal organs! Here's how it works - the women
get to play shuffleboard with a dead rodent onto a
bulls-eye. The outer layer of the bulls-eye is a large
portion, the inner layer is a smaller portion, and if
the woman hits the bulls-eye, then they don't have to
eat any of the animal.
Colleen, who is a
vegetarian, is assigned to go first - and she shuffles
up the largest portion of animal, maggots and flies
included. Krystina is making vomiting noises, but it
doesn't work as Colleen trades her vegetarian habits in
for a chance at $50,000.
Nicole is next - and
after a few minutes trying to hit the target, she
finally gets to the largest portion. She complains that
the food is cold, which prompts Joe to say "This is Fear
Factor - do you think we're going to cover you in milk
and honey?" Nicole, who says that the one think she
can't handle in life is eating roadkill, quits, as Joe
gives her a "See you later, see see you later" chant to
Krystina is the third
person to go - and she says that after this stunt, she
never wants to hear anything from her kid about not
eating her food. Heh. She gets her pelt in a smaller
portion. The women start making vomiting noises at her,
but that worked as well as Krystina's vomiting noises
-meaning that it didn't work at all. Krystina moves into
the finals- and then promptly pukes, which really sends
a mixed message to her kid.
avoiding Krystina's puke, shuffles the pelt to the
largest portion section - and she has to deal with a
combination of fake vomiting and real vomiting noises.
She talks about the smell and the stringy flavor and the
maggots - but unlike Nicole, she gets it down, and
unlike Krystina, she doesn't puke.
Krystina, Colleen and Danel are the final three - and
they all knew that it would come down to those three.
Here's what it comes down to - the women have to
navigate a set of spinning platforms and grab flags,
picking up yellow flags going one way and then red flags
going the reverse way. To stop the clock, you have to
get the final flag - which is hanging on a beam a little
further away. Whoever does this the quickest (or grabs
the most amount of flags) wins everything.
Krystina goes first, and
she is taking her sweet time. She gets all of the flags
in 1:49.5 - but she misses the final flag, and her time
is pretty slow. Colleen is the next person up - but she
only gets 2 flags before falling in the water and the
idea of being slow but safe may be a good one. Danel is
the only person who can beat Krystina - but she also
makes a bad jump on the beam and she falls in too. Slow
and stead wins the race - and $50,000 as Krystina has
more money to but food for her kids - as long as it's
not the roadkill variety.
