Sponge Worthy - January
everyone, welcome to the new year as we bring you the
latest from the Gauntlet II back in my home base of
The episode begins with the participants dancing at a
bar. That's when the drama surfaced again as Jodi
watches Mark and Robin get up close and personal. This
becomes too much for Jodi to handle. The memories of
her relationship with Mark are making it hard for her
to move on. When Mark and Robin noticed Jodi's
hysterical reaction to them being together, they
argued and then Mark went from Gauntlet II to The
Jerry Springer Show in 2.2 seconds as he leaves the
After the hell went over, the teams receive a clue
sent by T.J. on their wireless devices.
>>Are you "sponge-worthy"? Meet us at Canoe Bay
tomorrow at 9 AM to find out?
The Love may hurt, but everyone's still aware that
losing the Gauntlet will hurt even more. The Rookies
are using positive thinking to win the next mission
while Kina literally prepares herself for the
The teams go to Canoe Bay for the next challenge
"Sponge Worthy" and each player will be wearing sponge
belts. Each team will be divided up into three
sub-teams, the soakers, the transferers, and the
collectors. The soakers will take the water from one
sponge to go to the transferers who'll then have the
collectors collect the water which will go into their
buckets. BUT...there's a catch involved, the players
can't use their hands. The team who fills up their
container first wins the mission and $10,000 for their
team bank. And today is a "Female Captain Day" and the
female captain of the winning team will also receive
an Nintendo DS gaming system.
In their determination not to lose another mission,
the Rookies come up with a plan. But the Veterans
decide to put as many people in the water with sponges
After witnessing players pushing water out of sponges
user their heads, buttocks, and some other body parts
in this perverted mission, the Rookies win with their
good planning. That means both teams now have $20,000
in their team banks. And that also means Ruthie will
be facing one of her teammates in the Gauntlet. Beth's
thinking she could be chosen, because some of the
people have preconceived notions of her as sneaky and
In the deliberation Jisela chooses volunteer herself
to save the unity on the team and not go out like a
punk like Cameran. Then T.J. spins the ship's wheel to
land on "Captain's Choice" and since Ruthie is
currently the Vets female captain she chooses "Reverse
In "Reverse Tug-o-War" as the name implies, the two
players will go into a backwards tug-o-war with the
rope tied to their backs. The first player to get a
flag in which they are at both ends of the playing
field, will have control of the captain title.
T.J. rings the bell to start this off and Ruthie
played it out like a champ to win. As for Jisela she
got sent home without putting of a fight disappointing
T.J. once again. She leaves the competition, with some
of her teammates crying. But that didn't stop everyone
from partying that night. Over the bar, Jodi and Robin
make up just in time to have fun.
And that's it for another episode of The Gauntlet 2
we'll see you next week.
Past Real Worlders and Road Rulers
come back for another Gauntlet showdown. This season, players
that have been round the block a while take on the newbies of
MTV's reality franchises.
