Episode 3 - July 27,
After the first 2 episodes back to back, we see that
we have the jungle alliance of Tony, Roberto, Jacob and
Patrick in their glory. They want to start voting out
the threats and there is no more mister nice guy. We'll
see how everyone else in the jungle feels about it - and
we'll see if the 4 Tarzans can successfully implement
The Tarzans aren't happy that cheetah has come back -
and the look on their face is very visible. Cynthia
comes over and hugs him, while he says that he screwed
up the first question on the flamingos. 'How the flock
would I know?' Him and Henry share congratulatory chest
bumps and we are starting to see a counter-alliance
The counter-alliance continues as Cynthia tells Lang
that Roberto is very nervous. He should be - Shannon
told everyone about his alliance and how she doesn't
trust him. Roberto says that he's here to play a game
and he's not here to backstab anyone but no one is
buying what he is selling and even Cherry knows it.
Cherry sees that its Boys Vs. Girls Vs. Henry and Lang,
and Cynthia says that it's time to get two boys into
there. Roberto says it's survival of the fittest, while
Cynthia tells him to continue the sexist talk and even
Lindsey is put off by Roberto. The Tarzans better win
this next challenge...
...but we won't see that yet. What we will see is
Madison showing them all a Tamandoa - otherwise knows as
a land anteater. He's arboreal, meaning that he lives in
trees and has developed leg muscles. They have 4 claws
in the front, 5 in the front and he will use his glands
to mark his territory. They will eat ants, of course, as
well as bees and termites and their tongues can move in
and out 150 times a minute. Like a kangaroo, the baby
will live in a pouch for 3 months.
NOW it's time for the challenge. In this challenge, they
have to imitate an anteater. With that, Madison unloads
a bucket of mealworms. Fortunately, they don't have to
eat the worms, but they do have to use a straw-like
device and use suction to stuck the worms into a cup.
The person with the most worms in a minute wins.
Group 1 - Bee, Lindsey, Roberto, Lang and Jacob. Lindsey
winds up eating the worms and the women look really bad.
The second round has Cynthia, Tony, Cherry, Patrick and
Henry. The person in the lead in this group is Patrick
It's time to weight the worms. Lang - 537 grams, Jacob -
406 grams, Lindsey - 242 grams, Roberto - 495 grams, Bee
- 332 grams, Patrick - 639 grams, Cherry - 562 grams,
Tony - 459 grams, Henry - 335 grams and Cynthia - 432
And the winner is... wait a second. Some of the
competitors accused the forerunners of 'scooping', which
is to mean that they used the straws as a spoon instead
of suction. The producers look at the tape, and sure
enough, both Patrick (first) and Cherry (second) were
scooping. "Cherry, you were also scooping instead of
sucking." That has to be the quote of the night, right
So, the winner now is... LANG! Tony is upset, as well as
the rest of the Jungle Boys. They should be, because
they all know that there will now be a reduction in
their members. 'It's every intent of mine to inject a
little cobra poison into that group.'
Tony says that it looks like Lang is happy to be there,
while Cherry congratulates him. Cynthia thinks that he
may go random, but him and Henry talk strategy and they
want to target the guys. Patrick comes over to Lang, and
he tells him that he will exempt both Pat and Cherry
from the Lion's Pit.
It's not Lang's turn to pick three people to go on an
expedition with him. Lang picks Henry - and he decides
that he will have everyone else draw cards to see who
goes. That winds up to be Cherry and Lindsey, while
Cynthia is sort of miffed that Lang didn't invite his
fellow coffee-drinker. Seeding the coffee beans of
Cherry, Lindsey, Land and Henry get to see Scott hold
down a 7 foot gator, reminding them all that gators are
dangerous. They all pet the gator. Scott warns them that
they have 80 teeth - and they all have replacements
under the top, The average gator uses over 2,000 teeth
in their lifetime. Henry gets to ride the gator, while
the rest of them try to search for gators. They use
Scott's friend Don to call out the gators. He makes the
sound of a baby gator, and sure enough they all come
The gators go back to the swamp - but the King of the
jungle returns to camp, saying how much fun everything
was. Tony completely expects to go - though Lang is sort
of weirding him out. He weirds out Cynthia too, but the
women are exempt because two of them are knocked out.
Henry (who has already been in the pit) and Patrick
(because of the worms) are also exempt - which leaves
Tony, Roberto and Jacob to play hoops to figure out who
will be competing against each other. Not everyone is
thrilled about this - including Lindsey. "I wish he
would grow some b@lls and just pick who he wanted to
go." Each baller picks a cheerleader - who can only root
against the opponent. Well, at least credit Lang for
They play bucket ball with a rag and a bucket. Who do
you think wins - the vet's assistant, the painting
contractor, or the Arena Football Player? The answer is
#3, as Tony wins, which sends Jacob and Roberto to the
Lion's Den. Or so we thought - but Tony protests and
Lang and Henry talks about this. They now play another
game, with Jacob automatically going. Tony and Roberto
now compete, and it gets physical to the point that Tony
runs down Roberto. It now turns into a shoot-out and
even Tony wants Lang to pick someone. Tony eventually
wins - again - and finally Roberto and Jacob go to the
Lion's Pit. Lang has not only pissed off the guys, but
he's now made enemies out of Cynthia, Lindsey and
Cherry, who doesn't think that he's the brightest Barbie
in the doll house.
Two of the dolls are up for discarding, as Lang, Roberto
and Jacob all go to the Pit. Jacob and Roberto still say
that they will be friends. Roberto says that his heart
is racing faster than the birds, while Jacob is looking
forward to this. Madison notes that last week, the
tables were turned, and Jacob brought Lang to be
eliminated. Lang says that it's a mixture of coincidence
Question #1 - What does arboreal mean? Jacob says that
they live in trees, and he's right. The first shot is
a... miss. Question #2 - How many claws did the anteater
have on its front paws? Jacob says 4 - and he is right
again. Log #2 is.... a miss. Question #3 - Tamandoa will
eat termites, ants, and what? Jacob is right with bees,
and Roberto is now slamming the table, as he can't get
in. He won't have a shot to, either - Jacob's third time
is a charm, and the log with the totem falls. Roberto's
grand plan is going to be 9 episodes short, as he is the
third person to go.
Roberto wants Lang to tell Tony that he felt at peace,
while Lang tells Roberto that he was a good hawk - but
they were too dangerous for him. Roberto can blame his
loss on Jacob, who's plans to get rid of Lang backfired.
Roberto can also blame himself for playing to win way
too early instead of laying low and not being an early
Lang promises that things will change, while Jacob
thinks that Lang may be getting more power out of this.
We'll see if the tables turn yet again on the next
