Pole Dance - November
Previously on The Duel,
C.T. and Jodi outpaddled their opponents to win the
"Rafty Race" challenge. After being voted into the
Duel, underdog Svetlana went after a top dog named
Beth. At the Duel, Beth disqualified herself by
ripping off her flag, giving the win to Svetlana.
Which of the remaining male players will be sent
their walking papers? Let's find out...
We start off the show with Wes thinking there's
definitely a good chance that he may be sent home.
And he's going to have to try and manipulate his way
out of this situation. Wes wants the handsome reward
really badly so that him and Johanna can start a
The players get their next clue...
>Do you think you're "slick" enough for tomorrow's
challenge? Be ready to "slide" out at 9 AM.
According to C.T., everyone ultimately wants him to
go home, but he has to stay focused and keep winning
challenges to keep them off his back.
The next morning we see Robin and Derrick being
paranoid that they could be the next victim of
elimination. Prior to gameplay we see C.T. and Diem
at one of the vans talking about the latter's
All of the players eventually end up at the sand
dunes where they see a set of greasy poles and blue
mats. They're all a part of today's challenge called
The players will be divided up into two teams with
C.T. and Eric being the captains since the former
won the last Duel and the latter winning the last
challenge. Each team will comprise of three guys and
three girls. The first leg will have both teams
compete have one of their players grab the flag at
the top of their greasy pole. The first team to do
so advances to the next round where they'll race
against each other through the dunes following the
arrows and then climbing up the greasy hill. The
first male and female to grab the flags will win
this challenge. The male will be safe from tonight's
Duel while the female will receive a car audio
The guys will alternate picks with a guy, then a
girl and so on.
C.T.'s Team: Diem, Wes, Robin, Evan, and Svetlana
Eric's Team: Jodi, Derrick, Kina, Brad, and Aneesa
In Round 1, C.T.'s team managed to grab their flag
first for the win. While Eric's team takes the rest
of the day off, the others run their race to the
flag. In the end Evan and Diem both grab their flags
first and the former kicks off today's pickings...
Evan picks Diem
Diem picks C.T.
C.T. picks Kina
Kina picks Derrick
Derrick picks Jodi
Jodi picks Eric
Eric picks Robin
Aneesa and Svetlana default safe
Robin picks Brad leaving Wes
Wes then challenges Derrick to tonight's Duel and
selects "Pole Wrestle" as its game. When the time
came to do battle, it took a couple of resets and
over 20 minutes to decide the winner. And on that
night, Wes proved to be the more solid competitor
than Derrick with the former winning a Seiko watch
and the latter sent home.
This means Kina's support system is gone as Derrick
once again gets eliminated before making it to the
finals. Then on the next day, Wes calls Johanna on
the phone for support and losing his grip in a weird
state of mind after last night's Duel. Can he hold
it together by the next challenge, we'll see as we
continue with more of The Duel the next time.
Past Real Worlders and Road Rulers
