What a Croc - August 28
Previously on Fresh
Meat, Diem revealed to Derrick that she's battling
cancer. At the "Target Training" challenge, Exile
nominees Darrell and Aviv stayed on track and pulled
off the win, earning them the first pardon of The
Challenge. Darrell and Aviv then chose Tina and
Kenny to take their place in Exile against Theo and
Chanda. At the Exile, Tina and Kenny's
puzzle-solving skills help them cruise past Theo and
Chanda, sending the powerhouse duo home. Will their
elimination solidify Tina and Kenny, a place in the
final three? Let's find out...
Making it to the final challenge is important for
the four remaining teams, especially Derrick and
Diem whom the latter has $60,000 in debt and has
cancer with the money being of importance.
Foregoing the next clue we see the teams meet up
with host Lavin at the Eagle Farm in Byron Bay for
their next challenge called "What a Croc". Each team
will position themselves on the mock crocodile from
head to toe. When the host sounds the horn, the
crocodile will spin horizontally (a.k.a. performing
a "death roll"). Whenever a part of ones body
touches on the pole, the time will be stopped. Each
team will have three tries and whoever stays on the
fake crocodile for the longest accumulated time will
win this challenge and receive a Kicker Car audio
system. And the winners will not only be the first
finalists, they'll also chose not one, but two teams
to go into Exile.
Here's a look at the results...
| 1 |Tina/Kenny |3:35|
| 2 |Derrick/Diem|3:00|
| 3 |Wes/Casey |1:47|
| 4 |Darrel/Aviv |0:27|
Tina and Kenny win this time and they're guaranteed
money in the final challenge. Then they choose
Derrick and Diem and Darrell and Aviv for the Exile.
Diem is pissed off at Tina at her decision to send
them in and this later turned into a battle of
In the Exile, Derrick and Diem drop their bags
hoping if they solve the 1st Checkpoint puzzle
correctly, that would have a prize of dropping their
bags. Both teams get there and see this...
What is the Next Letter in This Series?
Write the answer on the paper provided below.
Diem writes down 'J' which is the correct answer and
their prize is...that each teammate drops...only one
bag. While Derrick and her go back to pick up a
total of two bags, Darrell and Aviv also get the
puzzle correct and get the same prize too.
The teams run to the next checkpoint where they see
this next puzzle...
The goal is to remove pegs from the board by jumping
over each peg with another peg; this removes the
"jumped" peg. Only horizontal and vertical jumps are
allowed. The game is over when no more jumps are
You win the game by removing all of the pegs except
one from the board.
At this point, Derrick and Diem forget to grab the
1st checkpoint flag, which could mean the loss of
their lead. The second verse is the same as the
first for Darrell and Aviv who also forgot the 1st
CP flag too.
When Derrick gets back to the 1st CP, he's been told
by one of the referee that Diem has to be here in
order for him to get the flag. Then Diem runs back
to Derrick to get the flag and then tries the 2nd CP
puzzle. Darrell and Aviv tried it, but decided to
pass and grab that flag and (with their leftover
bags), they run for the finish line.
Derrick and Diem's mistakes have cost them their
chance at the big finish. Derrick feels that he as
let Diem down and says that there'll always be
something special about her and hopes that
everything works out. Diem mentions that the reality
is now going to set in. And the reality isn't fun,
because home is not fun and she doesn't want to do
the stupid cancer treatments. However, she's
grateful for the five extra weeks of normalcy she
The field is now down to three teams, who'll become
