"They're Back!... and
THEY'RE Back!" - June 8
The next day, Ken expected to be on the block,
"because it's the Skipper's job to lead the way."
Meanwhile, the Bounces made their own private mini-golf
course. Crazy Charlie takes some time to chill on it
while mulling his fate.
Zac is looking all over
the island for Mary Ann Mandy. He finds her... in bed
with Professor Andy! Enter a threesome. Andy swears that
it won't go past that.
Then comes the discovery
of ants in the rations. And it's Randi being
"unappreciative", right on cue.
Ken gives himself an
edge, while Crazy Charlie calls himself. Scott calls
Attention Skippers! That sinking feeling means only one
thing. It's time for the head-to-head competition. Grab
your Minnow-mates and head to the lagoon."
And head to the Lagoon
we do, as we await the first H2H Challlenge. And it's
still "on like a chicken bone." Howie doesn't like
heights. Well, this isn't the place you need to be. Now
to the challenge. It's basically a bail out of a boat
with holes in it. Every minute, a castaway will swim to
safety, although when they do, the hole they are
tethered to will unplug. This will continue until there
are only the Skip and the Gilligans left. The Skipper
who keeps his boat afloat will float to the Final 7.
Erika will not compete, but is a darn good cheerleader.
And here comes the
water! Mr. Millionaires are first out the boats. Crazy
Charlie still with a smile on his face. Orange team is
panicking. Mary Anns are out. Now the Professors are
out, and we soon discover that another member of the
Orange team can't swim. Tiy-e almost drowns, as Scott
breaks from his host duties to rescue him. I'd like to
see Pretty Boy Probst have to do that. Howard joins him,
and Tiy-e is pulled to safety. So it's back to focus on
the boat. Meanwhile Scott takes his perch just in time
to say "Miss Millionaires out!" Zac blew the call and
jumped out, leaving Charlie to bail. Get back in your
boat, Gilligan! He does, and the Orange team is REALLY
struggling right now. And down goes the gondola. Glub.
Glub. Glub. That means Charlie is one of the seven
finalists, and Ken is banished to the other side of the
Meanwhile, Tiy-e gives
mad props to Scott for saving his life. And Donna starts
talking about ... a curse. Here's one for ya: the green
team gets fishing equipment. Well, there was a curse on
gold last season, wasn't there?
The fishing equipment
awaits Skipper Charlie at his hut. Meanwhile Tiy-e tries
to rally the forces together... which does nothing for
Randi as she wishes that he told everyone that he
couldn't swim. "That could be a liability to the team."
Well, she was a lifeguard. Why didn't she save him?
"I've been trained in shallow water." Millionaire Jim
thinks that her life-saving skills are better suited to
"a kiddie pool". Tiy-e calls her selfish. And
speaking of calls...
Attention castaways! Please make your way down the
And that's what we do,
arriving at a makeshift movie theatre. They eat as we
get a screening of "Angie's Finger of Death: The Movie".
Here's what our benched movie star has to say. "I'm
sitting here in the hospital after my operation. I
severed two tendons. They sewed me back together, but
unfortunately I'm going to have to cast off. Erika,
represent for Hollywood. A celebrity can win. Mandy: I
have such a good time teaching you how to walk. You're
so adorable, so I'm sending you my shoes."
After the movie, Zac
tries to make a hat for Mandy. "She's playing him like a
fiddle," Erika says. Zac gets the props, but I doubt it
was all his handiwork. Meanwhile, it's time for the
sojourn to Voodoo Village. Charlie & Erika take the box
back to discover that... there's only one millionaire.
So unlike the first TRGI, the Millionaires compete
The two sets of
Millionaires spend one last night together. And so does
Mary Ann Mandy and Prof. Andy. "You really can't create
romance. Sometimes it just comes to you. Prof. Andy
makes me feel safe. He makes me feel happy." And Zac is
"a little jealous" about the whole thing.
The next morning, the
castaways give Tiy-e the nickname, "The Rock." Howie got
some pain because of his rescue effort. Tiy-e calls him
out to tell him that "he forgot how to swim." "It's been
so long." "The guy is like off the wall," Howie says. "I
am who I am," Tiy-e says.
As Donna spends her last
days with Jim musing, she thinks she can feign sympathy
if she is left by herself. Howie spends his time doing
pushups, while Charlie tries to stop him. Jim eggs him
on for more. "Once Mr. Schur is out, anything can
Attention Mr. Millionaires! A stroke of good luck could
come in handy right now. Grab your Minnow-mates and head
to the beach for your Head-to-Head competition."
We're playing golf as
the Mr. Millionaires have to drive avocado pits provided
by avocados that the castaways will be carving. The
Millionaire with the most pits wins. Charlie & Zac sit
out. Let's grip it and rip it!
Orange gets the first
shot. Orange gets the second pit. The Green team kept
getting pits on the green... but kept having them bounce
off. Final score: Orange wins, 2-0, meaning it's Game
Over for Howie Schur. Soe he says goodbye as he is
banished to the other side of the island. As a reward,
the Orange team gets a chest of beer and a pool. Melissa
says it was never about the money and that she still
wants to win.
As for Jim... "Now it's
me and the two millionaire women, so it's menage-a-trois
time!" A lot of celebration on Green's part, meaning Tiy-e
shots a lot "Who's your daddy? I own you! You're
nothing!" "I am the gloating king!" Well, you're not a
king of swimming, that's for sure.
Meanwhile Andy and Mandy
get away from the camp to spend some... quality time is.
Zac decides to spy on the couple. And by that, we mean
play "third-wheel". Zac says that his mom needs a lung
transplant, and because of that, he's "between years" in
school. "I'm really competitive," Zac says.
Meanwhile it's time to
head to Voodoo Village again. Mandy and Mr. Bounce head
out in the rain and come back with the box of fate. And
out pops... Miss Millionaire. So either Miss Melissa or
Donna will join Howie soon enough. Melissa: "I have
nothing to lose at this point."
She may have something
to lose (like, say, a game?) next time on Gilligan's
