Previously on Rivals, Wes decided to
provoke his biggest competition, C.T. in an attempt to get him out of
the game. Unfortunately, it's C.T.'s top priority to mess with Wes.
C.T. and Adam have swept up the competition in the Sync or Swim
challenge for the guys. Paula and Ev had also won it for the girls,
but Camila and Theresa become the Jungle's next victims. Today one of
the six remaining male pairs will be out of Costa Rica.
The men of the mob ask Paula and Evelyn to put C.T. and Adam at a
disadvantage in the next challenge. But Evelyn sees a glaring error
that could mean the end of the line of Wes and Kenny.
Challenge #4: Hammock Crawl
Two teams at a time must make their way from one platform to the other
by crawling on several hammocks within a 15-minute time limit. They
can only touch two hammocks at one time and no team member can touch
the next hammock until they're both are in the previous one.
C.T. & Adam - round completed
Leroy & Michael - round completed
Sarah & Katelynn - DQ (Sarah touched one hammock too many while
Katelynn didn't go past the starting point.)
Jenn & Mandi - DQ (Jenn splashed down)
Ty & Brandon - round completed
Kenny & Wes - DQ (Kenny splashed down)
Cara Maria & Laurel - round completed
Jasmine & Jonna - DQ (Jonna splashed down)
Evan & Nehemiah - round completed
Johnny & Tyler - round completed
6th & Final Round: Paula and Evelyn - DQ (Paula splashed down)
Cara Maria and Laura were the only team to complete the challenge, so
they get immunity. However, they don't get the $2,000 bonus prize
because they didn't finish within the 15-minute limit. This is
probably the first time in the history of MTV's The Challenge that no
team wins a bonus prize.
Over on the men's side Nehemiah and Evan had one of the three fastest
times in this challenge. But upon further review, they touched three
hammocks at once, so they got DQ'ed. Johnny and Tyler, who finished in
second place, were given the win by default. And for the second time
so far, Kenny and Wes will go into the jungle.
Since Wes and Kenny got disqualified, their D-Day plan had lost their
effectiveness. Wes is now trying to get the other competitors to vote
for Brandon and Ty. The deliberations begin and Brandon appeals to the
house to vote in the rookies. But that didn't work out as Ty and
Brandon are Kenny and Wes' opponents in the jungle. Evelyn knows that
the D-Day plan that the mob came up with was idiotic. Maybe they
should have listened to Evelyn, but the mob is still going through.
Jungle Game: Going Up
Each team will start on either side of a water pit. On T.J.'s signal,
the players involved must run and jump to their assigned rope. If both
players of the team go up and ring both of their bells first, they
win. If one player of each team rings the bell, they'll then play
another round one-on-one to determine the winning team.
The first round ends in a tie between Brandon and Wes, so they play
the deciding final round. The challenge ends with Brandon getting
gassed on the final rope climb, resulting in a win for Kenny and Wes.
Brandon's energy had ran out and so is his and Ty's time in Costa
C.T. was this close to getting Wes out of the house, but he's now back
where he started. Kenny better step up his A-game if he and Wes want
to avoid going back to the jungle again.
