Blood on the Dance Floor
August 3

Previously on Rivals, Wes and Kenny won a challenge for the first time ever this season. But Evan decided to throw not only the challenge, but also Nehemiah under the proverbial bus. They then decide to take on C.T. and Adam in the jungle in the Rail Side game. But once again they've proved there's no stopping their journey toward the big money.

Challenge #7: Sawed Off

Half of each team will control a high-power water hose, leaving their partners hanging out over the water. They have to shoot down their partners into the water within 20 minutes. The male and female teams who complete the challenge in the fastest times wins.

The eight pairs will be grouped up into two teams of four each. Since Kenny and Wes and Cara Maria and Laurel have won the previous challenge, they're the team captains.

Paula & Evelyn
Johnny & Tyler
Jasmine & Jonna

C.T. & Adam
Jenn & Mandi
Leroy & Michael

Wes and Kenny's team then decides to have the other team go first. This might be a good decision for them Cara Maria & Laurel's team had maxed out timewise.

Wes and Kenny's good decision proves to be confirmed as they complete the challenge in 17 minutes and 48 seconds.

The male pair Johnny and Tyler had the fastest time among the winning team, giving them another $2,000. For the girls, Paula and Evelyn also had their fastest time among the winning team. They are safe from going into the Jungle and they're guaranteed to be the first pair of female finalists. Sadly, Laurel and Cara Maria have lost their chance to build their winning streak as they're sent into the final jungle for the girls.

After another two-minutes worth of deliberations, the teams once again vote Jasmine and Jonna into the jungle. Then almost all of the players not in the jungle wear blue in support of Jasmine and Jonna. This also lets the players rub their noses at Cara Maria and Laurel.

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.

Despite not having the support of the other players, Cara Maria and Laurel win with a sweep. They make it to the final challenge while Jasmine and Jonna have to go home after being so close to the end.

There's only one male elimination left, but they'll be leaving Costa Rica for Buenos Aires, Argentina. The players have already witnessed that the challenges have been kicked up a notch, but the ante will be upped for what's in store. Cara Mara has a feeling that they're not going to Buenos Aires for fun. Oh how right she'll be.
