Ice Breakers - December
Previously on the Duel,
Evan and Jodi had stacked up against their opponents
in the "Stacking Stairs" game. Then Brad sends Big
"E" (Eric) home after winning the "Pole Wrestle"
game in the Duel. Which of the remaining girls will
be eliminated next? Let's find out...
We start with Diem noticing that C.T.'s a good boy
after they kissed together. Then Kina sort of gets
the impression that Svetlana wants to go home and
wants to kick her butt. Jodi feels that everyone is
starting to get really panicky and feel like taking
The players then get their next clue...
> Are you ready for a SMASHING good time?! Be
prepared to leave by 9:30 AM.
As the next day comes Svetlana tells us that this
game is fair. It's the players that make it dirty.
And, she would rather leave with pride, although
$150,000 is so much money.
In another room, C.T. talks to Kina and Diem about
eliminating Jodi. Diem thinks that Jodi is the
superwoman and she's the one to beat.
The players go to a lookout for their next challenge
entitled "Ice Breakers". Today, they will be
breaking as much ice as possible through their
grates into their containers. The male players will
compete in their heat and then the females will have
their turn. When given the signal, the players must
run to a pile, pick up their ice blocks (one block
at a time), and then bring them to their grates.
When a player is satisfied with what they've done,
they must then get another ice block and repeat
until five minutes are up. After that, the players
will then take their containers to be weighed. The
male and female with the highest weight wins today's
challenge. The female winner will be saved from the
Duel while the male victor receives golf clubs and a
private golf lesson.
Evan couldn't say that his chances are good. It's
definitely going to be the most difficult challenge,
take the most endurance, the most brain and will
power of all the challenges before this. So, Evan
just hopes that I can survive and the chance of
death is high. Kina says that if Anessa or Svetlana
win, it's very likely that she, Jodi or Diem will go
into the Duel tonight so she's just gonna try and
smash the ice as quick as she can and hope that wins
The men give their all in breaking the ice. Svetlana
is going to try and get as far as I can. Svetlana
just needs to make sure that she doesn't let herself
give up because she has been letting herself give up
when she knows that she can do very well here. We
then see Kina having a little bit of pent up
aggression inside her as she takes her sledgehammer
and beat the (expletive deleted) out of the ice.
Here are the results.
MEN'S RANKINGS (Pounds of Ice)
Brad - 15.05 Ibs.
CT - 16.00 Ibs.
Wes - 18.55 Ibs.
Winner: Evan - 19.60 Ibs.
WOMEN'S RANKING (Pounds of Ice)
Diem - 7.20 Ibs.
Svetlana - 9.35 Ibs.
Aneesa - 8.80 Ibs.
Kina - 9.40 Ibs.
Winner: Jodi - 9.75 Ibs.
Evan and Jodi have won the day's challenge and it
turns out that the former is the premiere
ice-breaker in all of Brazil, all of Canada and all
of the world! Kina, sarcastically, is proud of Jodi
winning, a great competitor, blah, blah, blah. Jodi
could understand why Kina was mad at her, she just
came here to play the game and compete. Jodi also
starts off the day's pickings...
Jodi picks Evan
Evan picks Diem
Diem picks C.T.
C.T. picks Kina
Kina picks Brad
Wes default safe
Brad picks Aneesa leaving Svetlana
Svetlana then challenges Kina to The Duel, and she
isn't surprised by Svetlana's decision. Kina
mentions that throughout this entire game,
Svetlana's been playing defense, but at this point,
she's prepared, and ready and able to go in and
compete. Then Kina selects "Push Me" for tonight's
game in which Svetlana played previously against
In the Duel, Svetlana pushed Kina away to
elimination in another intense battle. According to
Evan, Svetlana is two for two in "Push Me," the most
unlikely competitor, the Cinderella of making it
through. He also says, "It's a crazy world out
there, folks, and it keeps getting weirder." We then
see Kina in pain, but Svetlana thinks she's putting
150% of a show. Supposedly Kina didn't remember her
battle with Beth in a previous Female Duel game.
Svetlana thinks she's pathetic for not feeling like
Wes, once again was extremely ecstatic that Svetlana
won because he's got to keep my girls here. One,
because he likes them and, two, because they're
voting for him and he's a selfish b*stard. They're
going to take advantage of this and ride the wave
all the way to the end.
As the players leave the arena for the night,
Svetlana has a more bitter and sweet feeling as she
as to work hard for the handsome reward and to take
the other girls out.
The competition continues next time on The Duel.
