"The Tiny Ship Was
Tossed" - December 14
Last night, the first vote. Today, the aftermath, as
Glenn is surprised that Rachel voted the way she did
(for him). "I think that Rachel picked my voodoo doll
because it was a retaliation for the coconut game." His
vote is to win, and he's taking the game seriously. "My
goal is to win. I'm going to vote my wife off! But you
said some things that made people not trust me, and that
was a low blow."
So who else voted for
Glenn? Skipper Jim? Professor Pat? Yeah, that sounds
Back at their hut, Millionaire Mindy is tired of all the
talk about strategizing. "All we've been doing is
strategizing. We talk about strategizing, we strategize
at the beach, he never stops strategizing. There's other
things besides strategizing!" Mindy begins to
demonstrate one of those "other things"... but then
Glenn says "So the Skipper is the swing vote." Way to
kill the mood.
Rachel and Chris discuss
breaking the alliance. "Rachel is smart enough to see
that the best way to crumble an alliance would be to
turn Glenn and I against each other." Sounds like a game
plan. He tells Kate that all he wants is freedom to vote
his conscience. "Chris and I had this tight bond like we
were going to vote together, then Rachel... put the
thought about breaking the alliance into his mind."
Basically put, she's in it for herself now.
Swing montage! Okay,
that was fun...
Attention castaways! The key to victory is within your
Who's up to being tied
up? Here's the score, there are three treasure boxes.
And in the treasure boxes? Treasure: $5000 in coins and
cash. While one partner is blindfolded, another is
handcuffed to a pole, directing the visually impaired
teammate to the spot in the sand that holds the key to
both the box and to the shackles. The first team to
unlock their box KEEPS the treasure.
The teams: Mindy/Glenn
(of course), Chris/Kate (of course), and "Skip"/Rachel
(of course). The girls are tied... Heh, while the guys
go digging. Chris is the first to find a key, while
Glenn finds one key and searches the same hole for the
next one. Glenn and Chris race back with their second
keys at the same time while Rachel is still waiting for
the Skip to dig up a first! Kate and Chris are first to
the box, as they unlock their treasure!
Oh, and Jim found the
first key. At long last. Yay. Rachel's happy as long as
the Millionaires didn't get it.
That night, Mindy makes
fart noises at the tub. She and Kate talk about
Chris never having a massage in his life. That is soon
remedied, as Chris gets to enjoy a massage and his
$2500. But then again, Chris is still bothered about Mr.
Stearns and his alliance. "The whole ally thing is
something I can't be a part of. I'm going to vote my own
way," he finally says to Glenn, who immediately thought
about what Rachel might have said. Chris denies. Glenn
tells Chris to keep thinking about the game and possible
influences. And speaking of, Rachel says that yeah, she
did put the thought of independence into Chris' mind.
Glenn goes to Kate to see if she is still playing ball,
but then again, Kate does hear about what Chris says and
she agrees with it. Dissatisfied with her neutrality,
Glenn heads back to ... strategize some more. "I'm
having a good time, I'm taking it one day at a time and
that's worked for me," says Mindy, who still hasn't told
Glenn that she's a bit tired of the whole strategy game.
"I'm just being me. I'm not trying to be nice because
that's a strategy."
Jim and Chris... Oh, you
remember a while ago, Chris had a Gilligan anchor on his
shirt? This is where it came from Jim drew it. Pretty
cool. They have "an unspoken alliance" because of
Next morning, the
Stearnses head out fishing, mostly as yet another
strategy move. Mindy takes it... well, as a millionaire
could take it while banging a fish against a rock. The
Skip is feeling threatened over his role as provider.
But then again, everyone's enjoying it... well almost.
"I'm not going to be won over by a fish," Rachel says.
And just as the fish was
beginning to digest, Thanksgiving turns into the Last
Attention castaways! Hold on. You have a lot of
obstacles to overcome."
Of course, it's an
obstacle course at the lagoon! One by one, each
castaways will will swing down a zip line, swim to a
platform, cross logs, swim to a cargo net, climb to the
top and stand inside a circle, and for what? A
life-preserver and a guaranteed one-in-five shot at
$250,000 and a new car. Fastest one wins. Glenn is
first... and his pants are down. He clocks in at 43.12
seconds. Mindy gets 44.47, not good enough. The Skip...
is still going at 2 minutes. Kate clocks in at 49.47.
Chris gets 45.81. It's all up to Rachel, who still has
that thing about water. We have a winner.... Rachel's
time... 43 seconds.... 47 milliseconds. Glenn wins by a
hair. "I felt like a trapped chicken."
Time to get dressed for
the elimination at Voodoo Village. Glenn is hoping that
Mindy will stick around. Kate tells the millionaires
that Chris' vote will stay as is.
Chris believes that he
needs to fix a mistake. Rachel thinks that people need
to start using their own minds. Meanwhile, Mindy works
on Jim and Kate... will it work? Not one of them
is safe... well, Glenn is.
And speaking of which,
it's time for the vote at Voodoo Village.
Glenn votes for Rachel.
"I hope this plays into my strategy. Nothing personal."
Chris votes for Mindy. "Just trying to even out the
The other four votes...
Kate... Mindy.... Rachel.... and Rachel. The movie star
has been edited off to the other side of the island.
Final words: "Thank you for an awesome experience.
They've been traumatic and amazing."
Meanwhile, Glenn wonders
if he could have possibly made a mistake. "Rachel was my
biggest threat, but now that I think about it, she could
have been my biggest ally. I'm not sure if I did the
right thing or not," admits Millionaire Glenn. Receiving
a vote toward elimination (later revealed from Jim)
throws off Kate. This vote proved more than anything...
it's still anyone's game to lose.
Next time, two hours...
and one rescue. Can Kate hold off the pressure? Will
Chris keep his lone stand? Is the game really worth the
Stearnses' marriage? Find out... next time.
We end as Glenn takes
the liberty of a free shower... with Rachel Hunter.
Every heterosexual man's dream.
