"It's an Uphill Climb" -
Last time, Mary Ann Amanda and Millionaire Beavens
were exiled to the other side of the island, leaving
Movie Stars Nicole and Rachel and Gilligans Gooner and
Chris to fight it out for the final two slots on the
course, because you asked for it, we start with...
gratuitous nudity! Prof. Pat and Skipper Jim take a walk
on the beach to find Nicole showering and Rachel
sunbathing. Oh yeah....
Millionaires Glenn &
Mindy note that they've got the best sleep that they've
had in a while, mainly because Bill & Donna are gonzo.
Meanwhile Mary Ann Kate and Gilligan Chris think that
they both took way too much to drink. Glenn thinks that
Kate can only take Chris so far before she has to fish
or cut baits. "Good for his character." Chris normally
doesn't kiss and tell, but "nothing happened" between
the first mate and the sweetheart.
"Anyone ever see Santa
naked?" No, Rachel, and I thank you to not pursue that
desire further. Especially when it involves Jim.
Attention Gingers. You're going to find out which star
is going to make the biggest splash. Round up your
fellow castaways and head to the lagoon for your head to
head competition." Nicole's waiting for this day:
"The odds of one team winning all the way down the
line... It's close to impossible!" For Jim, it doesn't
matter who he likes: only who'll win.
The challenge: an
underwater obstacle course to get pearls. Dive into the
water to collect oysters, while your Gilligans must
shuck for pearls. It takes 15 pearls to make a necklace
and one necklace to secure your place in the final 7.
(Rachel) "Are they real?" (Scott) "That's a good
question, actually." Nicole has the advantage going into
the challenge with the Baywatch experience. "Those
shells are really deep and I can't do that deep because
my ears really hurt."
Nicole does have the
advantage, grabbing three or four shells at a time while
Rachel only grabbed one. Nicole led at one time, 7-5.
Then comes a time where Rachel catches up to tie the
teams at 11. After telling her teammates to shut up,
Rachel comes up with two more. Three more... Four more!
But can Rachel string them all in time?
Nicole has her 15.. Now
it's a race. Rachel takes time to count her pearls...
That's 15! She wins it! Gooner calls it luck of the draw
and the two movie stars congratulate each other. Rachel
joins Jim, Pat, Kate, Glenn & Mindy in the final seven,
leaving one open spot... Gilligan. And only one Minnow
Green to fight it out for... Gooner
Needless to say, Rachel
was shocked, but truth be told, Nicole was weakened from
not eating, and it finally got back to her. Minnow Gold
gets to have a movie night with soda, popcorn, and
After the competition,
it's back to the hot tub for Chris, Kate, and the
Stearns. Chris is always confident, but at the same
time, he's always nervous. Kate doesn't know what will
happen once it gets down to the final seven, but if she
has any control over it, she wants to be in the final
four. Her words... takes after her mom, doesn't she?
Meanwhile, it's time to
start thinking alliance, as Mindy says that her hubby
has a master plan. "He's always five steps ahead of us."
The only threat: Rachel, who Glenn calls "a very smart
woman." Glenn meets up with her to talk movie, and
Rachel wonders about... missing crackers? This blows up
at dinner time. Kate and Amanda decided a long time ago
to save the crackers for when they were really hungry...
but now she doesn't know where she put them.
But enough about that...
It's showtime. It's date time. It's... an HDTV movie in
paradise. The movie: Mr. Robinson Crusoe. And from 1932,
it's primitive as can be.
At the huts, though, Jim
and Gooner share a stogie. Then they get the idea to
liven up the movie a bit... so they raid the theatre and
Gooner drops his pants. "It's a horror movie!" "I did
that, because they can kiss Gooner's ass." Then Gooner
and the Skip get an idea to make a voodoo doll and hang
it up on a yellow string. And they do, with a yellow
string to signify Chris and a green string to signify
Gooner's victory. They then burn the doll in effigy.
Pat: "Kinda reminds me of Skipper's raft. It looks good,
but it just won't go." Tackle!
Meanwhile, Rachel and
Glenn return from Voodoo Village with the REAL Gilligan
doll. And a note: "Tomorrow, it's Gilligan vs. Gilligan
with no help from your Minnow mates."
"Sorry to see you go,
Gooner." Them's fighting words. Meanwhile, Kate and
Chris spend at least one night together. He says that
he's just going to do it. Jim says that Gooner needs
this win for both character and the salvation of Minnow
Green. He plays mind games as he begins to "start
feeling like ass." He lets Rachel know of his game face,
since she was the one who was cheering him on, but then
Rachel reveals that Kate may be a bit shady.
Meanwhile, Glenn & Mindy
Gilligans, prepare to test your sea legs! Grab your
fellow castaways and head to the beach for your final
mentally, while Chris... sleeps. The challenge:
transport water down the beach while dizzied by a
rotating water pump. The Gilligan with the most water in
his tub at the end of time will be the final castaway in
the final seven.
is initially dizzied hard, but he shakes it off. Gooner
on the other hand has a hard time keeping water in his
tub. And a hard time keeping himself in the chair. Same
with Chris. Continue for another few minutes. And that's
time. And now... the weigh-in. No contest, as Chris wins
it all. Meanwhile, for little buddy Gooner, it's the
final nail in the coffin for Minnow Green. Both teams
will miss the way that he touched a lot of lives on the
But in the meantime,
here are the final seven!
Skipper: Jim Murray
Millionaires: Glenn & Mindy Stearns
Movie Star: Rachel Hunter
Professor: Pat Abbott
Mary Ann: Kate Koth
The seven run in the
rain to get back to camp for a celebration of sorts.
First, bedding... everyone gets it. Changes of clothes:
everyone gets it. Lobster, corn, baked potatoes...
everyone gets it. And one other thing that everyone
gets... A visit from Scott? After congratulations, Scott
notes that tomorrow, the game will change and the
biggest challenges are yet to come. "Things are going to
get ugly," Jim says. You don't know the half of it...
Because just as we're ending this episode...
Attention castaways! There's a hurricane approaching.
Evacuate immediately! Evacuate immediately!"
Next time, the castaways
return from higher ground.
