Through the Looking Glass
June 29

The first episode of Rivals is already in the books. Leroy and Adam R. split $2,000 for winning the High Dive challenge. But one half of that team got ejected after Adam R. got provoked by Tyrie into fighting him. Michael is now Leroy's new partner. Then in the Jungle, Aneesa and Robin lost a game of Hands On to Ev and Paula. The girls have had their first turn for elimination, and it's now time for the guys to have their turn.

Challenge #2: Car Crusher

Two teams at a time will start inside the tractor, sitting on each other's laps, with one person steering and the other controlling the bucket. Communication will play an important role, although it's going to be a problem with some of the teams. When T.J. gives the signal, a team will pick a car out of a lineup and drag it through the field to the crush zone. Once a team gets there, they'll crush the car into the ground. Once they deem the car is low enough, they must slide it into their goal without tipping the crossbar.

Teams may not pick up the car at any time. If the machine they operate crosses any boundary line, they're automatically disqualified. The guy and girl teams who complete the task the fastest wins.

Ty & Brandon - DQ (car pick up)
Johnny & Tyler - Completed
Theresa & Camila - Completed
Jenn & Mandi - DQ (out of bounds)
Kenny & Wes - DQ (out of bounds)
Evan & Nehemiah - Completed
Jasmine & Jonna - DQ (crossbar knock-off)
Sarah & Katelynn - DQ (out of bounds)
Davis & Tyrie - Completed
C.T. & Adam - Completed
Cara Maria & Laurel - DQ (crossbar knock-off)
Paula & Evelyn - Completed
Leroy & Michael - Completed

The winners on the girls' side are Evelyn and Paula who beat out Camila and Theresa and they split $2,000. On the guys' side Adam and C.T. beat out Leroy and Michael, to win immunity from the jungle. Wes and Kenny's DQ right out of the gate in that challenge puts them into the jungle. For the deliberations, Davis and Tyrie are called out, and are sent into the jungle against Kenny and Wes.

Jasmine and Jonna get into an argument with Camila and Theresa, after Camila mistakenly calls Jonna "Jasmine," and when Jasmine becomes involved in the argument, she later vents her anger by punching a mirror in one of the rooms.

Jungle Game: Blast Off

The players are attached to their partners, matched up two-on-two in football helmets and shoulder pads against their opponents in a circle. They must tackle their opponent out of the circle. The first team to get their opponents out of the circle three times wins.

Kenny and Wes win this game, pushing Davis and Tyrie out of Costa Rica.

In the meantime, Evan, Kenny and Johnny try to offer their support for Adam, but they realize that he's partnered with CT, who is despised by the other competitors.
