Episode 4 - August 3,
Lang the cobra king gets the first strike - but has he
set himself to be prey for everyone else? Lang has
successfully alienated almost everyone in the camp
against him - except for Henry. That could be good if
either of them win the next King contest - but
disastrous if any of the other 7 win it.
Lang walks alone to the group - and Jacob is well behind
him. Tony is happy to see him, as well as the rest of
the group as Jacob tells everyone what happened. Cynthia
is thrilled that Roberto is gone, as the saw him as the
biggest competitor. That attitude may change later on in
Lang wants everyone to come out and play on some drums.
He says that he would like to think that the two people
who came in last in the event would be the two going to
the pit. The guys don't mind it, while the girls, who
think that Lang is singling them out, are seething -
especially Lindsey. Tony reminds everyone that it is a
game, while Bee was insulted by the idea. Bee hasn't
heard anything yet - Henry comes up and says how the
women haven't been playing the game because the guys
have made all of the alliances. That really fumes the
women and Henry is now enemy #1 with a bullet. The women
swear that one of them will win the challenge this time.
Lang realizes that he successfully pissed the women off
- "The challenge slipped away from me," while the women
all agree that if any of the them win, Henry and Lang
will be on the chopping block. What's not on the block?
Calvin, a chimpanzee. Scott shows them all Calvin
climbing around. He is an omnivore, which will eat both
meat and fruits. Calvin runs to Cherry, who has to give
him back to Scott. Chimps will use their knuckles and
the pads on their feet, while their hands, teeth and
tongues look a lot like humans. Chimps will grow to be 4
feet tall and weigh 120 pounds. IN the wild, the primate
will live to be 40-45 years old.
We'll see if Lang's reign as king lasts for years as
they get their next King of the Jungle Challenge. The
players have to get up a cargo net and use the letters
attached to the top of the net to spell out the answer
to three questions. Here's the catch - the players will
be divided into teams of three. Two of the players are
climbers, the other person is the question caller.
The three captains, who get to select the teams, are the
first three survivors of the Lion's pit; Jacob, Henry
and Lang. Henry picks Patrick and Bee, Jacob picks
Cherry and Lindsey and Lang picks Cynthia and Tony. Here
are the questions - #1. Which of the great apes is the
largest? #2. What primate is the closest living relative
to humans? #3 What ape is solitary rather than social?
The answers, in case you want to know, are Gorilla,
Chimpanzee and Orangutan.
Lang's group goes first and Cynthia screws up the answer
of the first question. That effectively eliminates them
from the competition with a 17:58 time. Patrick flies
through the questions and does a good job assembling the
troops. He does an interesting strategy of getting the
letters and filling them in, like Scrabble. It seems to
go well, as they beat their time with a 15:40. Jacob
lets Cherry call the questions, and they are very
methodical - and with a 9:42 time, they blow everyone
The question now is who gets to be king? They solve that
as the three people who win decide. They all decide that
the King should be...Cherry! She is the new queen, and
Lang and Henry may as well pack their bags now.
Cherry says that with the win, the weight has been
lifted off of her. The women grab some of the leaves and
create a makeshift red carpet for her. The four
remaining women celebrate and Cynthia wants to make
changes in terms of dynamics. Tony is the first guy to
congratulate them, saying that they deserve the win.
Cherry's first task? Get the tree mail, which tells her
to pick 2 people to come on an expedition. Cherry
selects the two people that haven't gone on an
expedition yet - Cynthia and Bee, who are both happy to
get away for the day.
Cynthia does not want to see an anaconda, afraid that it
will eat her. Bee reassures her that it won't eat her,
because anacondas would just strangle her to death. I
hope Bee doesn't work during her free time as a suicide
The girls don't see any snakes - but they do see a water
buffalo. They get to pet the huge cow-looking creature
and Cynthia says that she has never petted anything that
big. I'm not going to touch that with a ten foot pole.
While they are playing with a buffalo, Lang, Henry and
Jacob do their own safari. They climb up vines and they
now plan to combine to take out the women. Henry -
'We're going to win and eat the young - and there's a
lot of eating to be done.'
The water buffalo is now eating, as Scott explains that
it is the largest creature in its family. They will
wallow in the mud to escape insect bites. We get a lot
of backbiting at camp, as Cherry decides that it's time
to play hardball. She decides that the random stuff is
over and she will choose who goes. Henry decides to
volunteer to go - and Cherry is impressed with that. He
does, however, ask that no one else from his tent goes
with him - and he's not getting what he wants. Lang is
happy that Cherry has grown a backbone - but he's not
happy that the backbone is being aimed at him.
Lang asks why, and Cherry says that she was insulted
when Lang was talking about the two slowest people. Lang
says that he accepts it - but he doesn't buy it and
accuses her of being shallow. He says that he's a man of
integrity and now the claws come out. Lang accuses
Cherry of being fake. Cherry says that she doesn't hate
him - but then she turns around and says that she has no
respect for him. She better hope that Lang does not win
the Lion's Pit Challenge.
Henry notes that regardless of who wins, they will still
be at a disadvantage. Lang isn't done venting, so he
vents at Cynthia, saying that he feels directly
insulted. Cherry walks in at the wrong time, as Lang is
still venting and they go after it again. Cherry accuses
him of losing control and says that her 13 year old
brother can take it better. She says that she is playing
the game and wants to play straight up. Lang goes after
her and still doesn't think that Cherry is being
sincere. Cherry is definitely not playing the game
correctly, though. More on that later...
Lang says that there is a good heart in Henry - and he
wants to tear it out. Cherry admits that the King part
wasn't as fun as it was going to be. We'll see who tears
out what with the first question. Where do chimpanzees
live? Lang says Chimpanzees, and he gets to take out a
log - which is totemless. Cherry is thrilled as she
sighs happily. Question #2 - What is the term for an
animal who eats everything? Lang gets it again
(Omnivore) and gets another log. He misses again and
Henry says that he is one tough son of a gun. Cherry
claps in approval.
Question #3 - What activity is essential for a
chimpanzees social life? Lang says grooming and he is 3
for 3. This time, he picks the right totem and Henry is
gone. Lang not only wanted Henry's heart, he wanted his
other limbs piece by piece.
Cherry says 'Fiddlesticks' as Henry and Lang share one
final chest-thumping. Cherry calls him a classy guy (NOW
she does this?) and Henry leaves. Henry says that he has
a great time and he apologizes to her. He thinks that he
has accepted her apology.
Now Cherry has to return his pendants. She gives them to
him, and then turns her back to him. Sure, she doesn't
hate him. 'If I realized how fast Lang was, I wouldn't
have sent Henry.' Cherry is in a world of trouble.
Instead of pitting the youth group against each other,
Cherry not only loses an ally (and someone who she
probably could have beat), but now she has left someone
who can't wait to put her up in the Pit.
Will Cherry pay the ultimate price? Or will the women's
group win for the second straight time? We'll find out
