Jump Down Under -
Fresh Meat, the game took a shocking turn when the
former powerhouse team of Coral and Evan were
required to leave the competition because of their
injuries. At the "Batten Down the Hatches"
challenge, Derrick and Diem climbed their way to
their first win. Despite Diem's close friendship
with Linette, the victory became bittersweet when
they made the tough decision to vote Shane and
Linette into Exile. Weary Exile veterans Wes and
Casey were then voted back into the Exile for the
fifth time and Linette's anger at Diem's betrayal
continued to boil over. Which team will be sent home
by way of the Exile this time? Let's find out...
We start of the show off with Linette chatting with
Diem about why she is so upset at how the vote went.
Then Derrick mentions that they're not going to give
Shane and Linette a chance at the pardon stating
that it's dumb.
The teams get their next clue...
>> You're just a hop, skip, and a jump away from
your next challenge. Be ready to leave by 8 AM.
Wes and Casey are focusing on winning the next
challenge and the pardon. Shane feels like his team
has a good chance of winning.
The teams meet T.J. at the island quarry in New
South Wales for their next challenge called "Jump
Down Under." Each of the teams will be jumping from
a 12-meter platform, which is the equivalent of
jumping off a four-story building. When a team jumps
into the water, they'll them make a 20-foot swim to
the Rave Superlaunch. From there, they'll climb up
the rope ladder and make their way across the
superlaunch as fast as possible to grab their flags.
Then they'll hit the water for a final 30-foot swim
to the designated floating flagpoles to put the
flags on to stop the time.
The team who clocks in the fastest will win this
challenge and a pair of Oakley MP3 sunglasses. Since
Derrick and Diem won the last challenge, they
conduct the order of play this time.
Once again bad luck hits Wes and Casey when her fear
to jump off the platform set in so high that she's
decides to forget it and not even Wes' so-called
help will change her mind. And for too many times in
this season, they once again get DQed.
| 1 |Derrick/Diem |3:15|
| 2 |Tina/Kenny |3:34|
| 3 |Darrell/Aviv |4:24|
| 4 |Theo/Chanda |7:20|
| 5 |Shane/Linette|8:30|
Derrick and Diem win again, but
Shane and Linette's best efforts were not enought to
keep them out of Exile.
For this Exile race and future ones, I'll only
mention the bag weights to only teams new to the
Exile. Since Shane and Linette is the new team in
Exile, I'll mention that they have to carry a total
bag weight of 171 pounds. Past the starting point
Casey isn't all there according to Wes and she's not
saying anything at all to make him know that she's
Shane and Linette get to first checkpoint ahead of
Wes and Casey that has a puzzle with an
old-fashioned, rotary telephone. The numbers
provided on the card on the desk is a code using the
letters marked on each numbered circle...
This is a list in which the numbers represent five
Australian towns. To solve three out of the five,
the team must write down the answers on the paper
But Shane's brain hurts and decides to pass on the
puzzle and move on. Then Casey stops over there, but
Wes encourages her to pass on it and move on.
Linette's bags are slowing her down and notices that
Shane is carrying three bags. Then Casey passes her
bag to Wes as they go up the hill and reach the
second checkpoint. The puzzle there sees a formation
of triangles using sticks, the objective is to
remove three of them to leave just three triangles.
Wes tries it out, but was incorrect and the second
verse is the same as the first for Shane and Linette.
In the end Wes and Casey once again survived
elimination while Shane and Linette bit the dust in
the hardest and tighest Exile race yet.
The players end the show hanging out at a bar after
another day of competition. Can Wes and Casey win
the next challenge to stay out of Exile or will they
get screwed by another case of deferred success.
We'll find out in the next installment of Fresh
Past Real Worlders and Road Rulers
come back to take on a set of viewers in the ultimate of
MTV's reality franchises.
