body Painters - January
episode of the Gauntlet II will not just be a work of
art if there's any indication. We start at the Club
330 & Divers Den, where Brad is talking to Derrick
about how he's been acting a little bit differently
since he came in and put himself in the captain's
chair. And Brad's curious to know what's going on. But
Derrick's got enough stress on his mind and doesn't
need to hear that from Brad. In response Derrick acts
abrasively to Brad. Derrick says in an in-show
interview that Brad deserves to get hit in his mouth.
Back at home base the teams pick up their T-Mobile
Sidekick II to read the next clue. It tells them to
get ready to paint the town red and blue, and to be
ready by 8:30 AM. Both teams have won two missions
each overall according to Mark. It's really important
according to Mark for the Vets to pull away and get a
3-2 lead. He also mentions that it's a Male Gauntlet
Day and the guys have to step up and focus because
they don't want to lose any more guys.
Alton as the current male captain, has his job to
choose which of the other Rookie guys to go up against
him in the Gauntlet if they lose the next mission. And
according to Alton, it puts on a lot of pressure at
least for him. Jamie trusts Alton and thinks he has
the ability to know who he wants until the end, it's
ultimately his butt on the line.
The teams go to Canoe Bay take on the next challenge
in the Gauntlet 2's roster called "Body Painters".
Each of the canvases have a designated color and the
objective is for the teams to paint them completely
wearing only speedos. M.J.'s feeling nervous upon
recieveing the notice because he's gonna have to put
on a banana hammock. He can only imagine what his
buddies back at home could be saying. One half of each
team will be the appliers while the others will be the
painters. The appliers will apply the washable paint
to the painters who'll then rush over to the canvas to
completely cover over it with their bodies. Once a
team completes their canvas, they then must run over
to the shower and get completely cleaned up for the
next canvas. Teams can transport the paint anyway they
want to, but they can't cup with their hands and can't
put it in their mouth. The first team to complete all
six of their canvases will win this challenge.
The Rookies figure that the guys have the bigger
backs, so they dump the paint on their backs and have
the girls smooth out the paint on the canvases. But
that strategy didn't work out as the Vets win this
challenge and $10K to their team bank account. They
now have a TBA total of $30,000 with the Rookies still
having $20K in theirs. And Derrick wins another $1,000
Best Buy gift card. It was a close race, not a blowout
by any means.
Now the Rookies go through another Gauntlet
Deliberation. Alton chooses to do battle with Adam
this go-around. According to Alton in another in-show
interview, they all love Adam and he's and awesome
person but these are very physical competitions and so
far, the bigger guys are huge assets. Alton spins the
ships wheel and lands on "Captain's Choice," then he
chooses "Capture the Flag".
He chose this game because it match up the most of
what Adam's looking for to show that he wants to be
here. Landon has a lot of respect for the way Alton is
doing it as far as giving Adam a fighting chance, but
at the same time he doesn't think that it's a smart
move for their team. The best thing according to
Landon, is to have Alton on their roster at all times
and picking "Capture the Flag" is risking not only
Alton himself, but the Rookies as a whole.
The teams go to the Gauntlet for a battle between
Alton and Adam in "Capture the Flag." For those of you
who haven't seen it before, a cargo net is positioned
at the center of the Gauntlet. The players are at
either side of the net and the first one to capture
the flag is the male team captain. In the end Adam put
up a valiant effort, but it wasn't enough to beat
Alton to the punch. Host Lavin was amazed by the
contestants fast climbing on the net. Although Adam's
going home, he feels like he gave it his all.
As Adam leaves the home base, in his last in-show
interview, he's extremely unhappy that his time in the
competition is up. But he feels that he's given his
shot in the Gauntlet and gives all his respect to
Alton, the Rookies and the rest of the active
castmates in Trinidad and Tobago.
At the episode's conclusion Derrick's happy to get
some sleep, but not before Brad steps in talking to
him how he's changed and how he wants to challenge
Derrick in the Gauntlet if need be. Derrick doesn't
want to hear about it, but Brad said an expletive to
him rasing Derrick's level of anger. As he's getting
defensive, Brad somehow gets defensive back. Katie
plays the role of the mediator to Derrick while Mark
sets Brad straight. They eventually apologized, but
Derrick says that if Brad ever tests him again, he'll
be going into the Gauntlet.
Join us again next week for another recap of the next
episode of the Gauntlet II, bye folks.
Past Real Worlders and Road Rulers

that have been round the block a while take on the newbies of
