With the allies gone, an intense Ev lashes
out at her partner, an easygoing Luke. One player from each team gets
strung up by their heels -- literally -- in a hilarious challenge. And
two of the teams are shocked by an Exile at an unexpected time, that
has the players' fears about the elimination round redefined.
With Wes eliminated, Kenny's four-team alliance has made it so far in
this game. However, Landon and Carley are still on the outs and that
goes ditto for Ev and Luke. Ev, who struggles being alone, has to put
110% of her energy into fighting for her life in this game. Ryan will
do whatever he can socially, politically, and physically to get him
and Theresa to the end. They are very close to the final and Ryan
wants to stay safe from the Exile.
Because Landon and Carley won the previous challenge, they get to pick
the playing order for the next one and that's the only time they get
control. Then Ev shows up talking about how she's getting awkward
glances from the rest of the players. Landon tells Ev that if he and
Carley give her the 2nd starting position and they win the next
challenge, then they let Ev and Luke send a team of their choosing
Landon then approaches Kenny about a deal about having him and Laurel
be put third-to-last in the next challenge. And if Kenny and Laurel
win, they would give Landon whom they want sent into Exile. Landon
thinks that his biggest weakness as a player is playing the game
deceptively. However, it's critical for him to be on an alliance
that'll have his back. According to Kenny, Landon knows that he had
made a bad decision in the beginning of the game to be allies with Wes
and Ev. And Landon has no other option than to make a deal with Kenny.
But at this point in the game, Kenny sees Landon as jumping on board
too late. Kenny consults with his alliance about his conversation with
Landon, but later sticks with their original plan.
It's time for another clue...
Are your bodies feeling wrecked yet? If not, they will by
tomorrow. Be ready to leave by 11:30am.
Everything that Ev is doing in this game is building up to taking out
Kenny and Laurel in the final challenge. And to do that, Ev needs her
partner, Luke, on point. Ev's "win-win" attitude puts pressure on Luke
and he has to live up to her expectations.
Challenge #8: Wrecking Ball
Each team will try to build a statue puzzle as fast as possible. And
here's the catch...a teammate will be hanging upside down from the
rope at the center of the playing field. Their partner will swing him
or her around while collecting the puzzle pieces and putting them
toghether and hoping they don't get knocked down. When the puzzle is
completed, it must stand for five seconds before a team's turn is
After the teams have endured the hilarious challenge, let's see how
they have fared?
Kenny & Laurel - 4m 4s
Jillian & Pete - 3m 5s
Jenn & Noor - 2m 22s
Ryan & Theresa - Disqualified (failed to complete)
Ev & Luke - Disqualified (failed to complete)
Landon & Carley - Time not given
Jenn and Noor have won this challenge and a trip for two with a
two-night stay, two round-trip, business class tickets, complimentary
cocktails, and more.
Ev got frustrated at Luke over his performance on the challenge. Ev is
an intense player who wants to win, while Luke is an easygoing guy.
Landon makes one last attempt to swing Ryan to his side by having him
vote for Pete and Jillian into the Exile. Although Ryan is seriously
thinking about it, the decision is really up in the air and has no
idea what to expect if there's a tiebreaker. Ryan wants to make it to
final as there is a lot of money at stake and he's so close that he
Luke and Ev are a better team, but they just didn't have the
opportunity to prove it. Ev then rethinks her attitude towards Luke
and decides to start being a better teammate towards him.
The deliberations begin with the new blood of Jenn and Noor in the
winners' seats, and they send Ev and Luke back into Exile. Landon
wasn't with Kenny's alliance from the beginning and they aren't going
to vote one of their own teams in. The other teams take the only
option available, by sending Landon and Carley back into the Exile.
At this point, host TJ tells the two teams on the chopping block that
they have to get ready right now. They're going to compete in the next
Exile elimination round in the...wait for it...nighttime.
As Ev prepares herself for the upcoming Exile against Landon, Kenny's
alliance doubts her confidence and they're hoping she doesn't come
Exile: Weight For Me: Blackout
This is about the same course as when it was played in the daytime.
However, after the first checkpoint, teams have to carry bags that
total 150 pounds of weight in their buckets. And the puzzles at two of
the checkpoints are now optional, and teams who decide to complete
them and do so successfully will give them some form of advantage.
On the first checkpoint, teams may try to arrange the seven puzzle
pieces to form the designated shape. In the second checkpoint, teams
must use the numbers provided to complete a Sudoku-esque puzzle. Each
row, column, and color stream must consists of different numbers. Upon
the successful completion of that, teams may remove 30 pounds from
their total weight.
At this point Carley succumbs to the altitude, forcing Landon to take
on all of her weight. Carley's situation causes Ev and Luke to narrow
down her and Landon's lead. In the final checkpoint, teams may guide
the marble from the green line to the green hole. If the marble falls
through a red hole, they must start again. If successful, five minutes
will be subtracted from their time. While Landon and Carley attempt
the final puzzle, Ev and Luke opt to skip it and the perks that go
with them. They then get to a point in the course where they see a
sign. It tells Ev and Luke that they may remove all of the weight from
their buckets and proceed to the finish line.
The light shines at the finish line where host TJ is standing. Ev and
Luke get there first with tears of joy, but TJ tells them that Landon
and Carley had completed the third puzzle for a five-minute time
credit. This means that Ev and Luke haven't actually won the Exile
yet. And unfortunately, we'll have to wait until next week to find out
who'll be eliminated and who'll return to homebase.
