Pass With Care -
Previously on The Duel,
20 eager competitors arrived at exotic Brazil, where
they were shocked to discover that there would be no
teams. This time it's everybody for themselves. At
the first challenge, Reachin' Out, Robin and Eric
managed to get their keys first for the win. The
Duel selection process made it clear that Key West
competitors were at the bottom of the pecking order.
At the first Men's Duel, Tyler lifted his way to
victory making his Key West roommate Jon the first
player eliminated from the game. At the Ring Toss
challenge, Kenny managed to outlast his opponents.
And cancer survivor Diem bravely removed her wig for
the first time before racing her way to victory. But
the real drama was just beginning between Tina and
We picked up from where we last left in the previous
episode with Tina who punched Beth after being
taunted by the latter. Unfortunately Tina's attempt
to hurt beth got her thrown out of the competition.
Tina thought it was worth $150K to finally punch
Beth after years of not going through with it. The
former felt like she came from a spa after that
experience. Beth is not letting anyone intimidate or
bully her. Tina's only regret about doing this
despicable act is that she just wrote someone else a
$150,000 check. She put all her chips into punching
Beth and leaves Brazil with finally finished
Then T.J. tells the players that it's a Female Duel
Day. However, since Tina got eliminated after the
aforementioned incident with Beth, the the rest of
the women are safe for now.
As night fell, the players get their next clue...
> Tomorrow you will need to choose your steps wisely
or victory may pass you by. Wear your bathing suits.
The players meet T.J. at a marina for their next
challenge, "Pass With Care".
Suspended 20 feet above the water are two plaforms
connected by a very unstable bridge. Today, the
players will have to make it one platform to the
other in the fastest time. In order to win this
challenge, they're going to need teamwork. Then the
guys join T.J. who then tells them they have one
minute to pick their female partners, much to the
chagrin of Wes.
After the teams have made their pairings, T.J. then
gives more info on this challenge.
A male player will start on the opposite end from
his teammate. Then the must make their way through
the unstable bridge towards each other. When both
players touch the red plank in the middle, they must
then pass each other to their opposite platforms to
stop their time. Players are not allowed to sit,
kneel, or have their hands touch on any part of the
Today is a Male Duel Day with the male winner
getting a pardon. The female winner today will
recieve an Infocus digital projector.
Since Tyler won the last Male Duel, he'll determine
the order of play...
1. Beth & Kenny
2. Kina & Derrick
3. Aneesa & Nehemiah
4. Svetlana & Wes
5. Jodi & Evan
6. Robin & Eric
7. Diem & CT
8. Casey & Brad
9. Paula & Tyler
Unfortunately, for the first time ever in the
history of "The Real World/Road Rules Challenge",
none of the teams have managed to complete the task.
Round 1 is done, so we start Round 2 and this time
the teams are allowed to use their hands to help
themsleves across the bridge.
After all of the teams have got the job done, T.J.
then reveals that the team of Evan and Jodi won this
challenge. And here's how the pickings had went...
Evan picked Beth
Beth picked Nehemiah
Nehemiah picked Aneesa
Aneesa picked Wes
Wes picked Robin
Robin picked Eric
Eric picked Jodi
Jodi picked Brad
Brad picked Diem
Diem picked CT
CT picked Kina
Kina picked Derrick
Derrick picked Casey
Paula & Svetlana default safe
Casey picks Kenny leaving Tyler
Then in a bold move, Tyler challenges Derrick to The
Duel. And Tyler chooses the Duel game for the night
which is "Ascender."
In "Ascender" the Dulers must climb a rope, cross
monkey bars, retrieve puzzle pieces and then climb
down the rope and the complete the puzzle first.
Despire Derrick not being good with puzzles, he
managed to pull off a victory winning an Xbox 360
while Tyler is the second Key West cast member to be
Back at home base, we see that Aneesa doesn't care
for Beth, it's too much. And she feels like she has
to be nice and also worried knowing that she's on
her own and has to play a game with Beth.
Now Beth feels like everyone's talking (expletive
deleted) to her after Derrick came in and tells Beth
that she's a difficult person. Beth has to take it
upon herself to stay in this game without depending
on anyone else.
And that's it for now, we'll see you next time on
Past Real Worlders and Road Rulers
come back with some of last season's Fresh Meat the ultimate of
MTV's reality franchises.
