Cry For Me Argentina
August 10

The female teams of Cara Maria & Laurel, Paula & Evelyn, and Jenn & Mandy have already become the first three pairs of finalists. One more jungle game will determine the other three pairs for the men. But for the seven teams remaining, they will not know what to expect then they end up in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The challengers then have a toga party and then a few of the guys throw cookies at Mike while he's trying to get some sleep. This kind of action gets him upset and yells at them and goes to another bedroom. Then the players pack their bags and they head off to Argentina.

When the challengers get to Buenos Aires, they stay at a nice villa. But it won't be nice for very long as the challengers go mental. Wes then plays a cruel joke on Cara Maria, which leads her to break down emotionally. Laura has Cara Maria's back and she defends her and tries to conduct the same cruel prank on Wes. Kenny stops Laurel and then gets a small bottle of water thrown at allegedly by Johnny. Then Laurel gets in Paula's face and puts her in her place.

After a very emotional night, the players meet T.J. for their next challenge.

Challenge #8: Bombs Away

One player of each team will be strapped to the bottom of an emergency helicopter, then their partner has to climb up a rope and pull a yellow cord to release their partner. Any player who falls in the water before releasing their partner will result in a disqualification for them. The male and female teams who complete the challenge in the fastest times wins.

All of the teams have completed their rounds, except for C.T. and Adam, who are going into the final jungle. As for Ev and Paula, they win for the girls and get the last $2,000 cash prize of the season. On the Men's side, Leroy and Michael win immunity and they're guaranteed to be one of the final three pairs of male finalists.

Up until this point in the season, the teams had to deliberate on who would play against an opposing pair in the jungle. But the decision time for the challengers is now. Two of the teams voted for Kenny and Wes, but four votes send Johnny and Tyler into the jungle against C.T. and Adam. Johnny and Tyler are shocked by this turn of events created by their friends Paula and Evelyn. Then Tyler runs around the villa to place blame on the other challengers because he's afraid of a re-match with C.T.

The challengers then go to a nightclub where Adam's mob friends turn on him and try to get inside his head before the jungle.
