Mac-Beth - February 27
At the top of this
episode, we see Kina doing some sparring with Randy.
Kina can't imagine going home after making it this
far in the competition. She's worried about Randy
leaving and honestly she'll be sad because he's her
boyfriend. Every morning, Randy feels like he's on
the chopping block whether it's a girl Gauntlet or a
guy Gauntlet and that puts stress on him.
The teams receive their next clue...
>Now that the teams are even, who'll step up and tip
the balance at tomorrow's challenge? See ya at the
port at 8 AM.
The Vets so far have won two missions consecutively
and they're catching up and really excited to tie
this game. Aneesa thinks that somebody has to go
into the Gauntlet and take Beth out of the
competition, because she's a deadweight. Robin,
Julie, Katie, and Aneesa talking about getting Rid
of Beth who's continuing to wreak havoc on the
Veteran team. Then Beth shows up and agrees with
what they're saying, but wants to hear from them to
her face instead of talking behind her back. In an
in-show interview, Beth says that Aneesa's the
weakest link on her team and claims she hasn't seen
her do much of anything yet. Beth is sick of
everybody disrespecting her and getting treated like
crap. Then Julie comes to Beth to make her feel a
bit more better, but then she says someone should
fight her in the Gauntlet and the negative energy is
fueling her even more.
The teams then go to the Port Authority for their
next challenge "Easy Does It". Each of the teams
will be spilt up into pairs and each of them must
jump into the water and separate. Then the players
must climb up the ladders, then go across the deck
on the platform and then back down on the opposite
ladders they came up. When both players have their
feet touch the water, they can let go of the ladders
and go back to the starting point. When both players
touch the dock, then the next pair will play. Each
team will have a 10-minute time limit and if any
player falls into the water while on the platform
(which tips in a side-to-side manner) before
completion, they must climb up the ladders again. If
a player jumps off the platform, then it'll result
in an automatic 10-minute penalty. But the platform
is only held by two "pit points" so it will tip. The
team with the fastest time wins this mission. Here's
a quick look at their progress...
Alton and Landon - Completed in 1:37
Jamie and Jodi - Completed in 2:00
Kina and Jillian - Kina falls off the platform twice
slowing them down, giving themselves the 10-minute
Ibis and Susie - Ibis falls off and can't reach
enough to get to the top of the platform, giving
themselves the 10-minute max.
Randy and M.J. - M.J. falls off and then in a quick
moment of stupidity, Randy jumps off platform,
getting them disqualified for the 10-min max.
Mark and David - Completed in 3:23
Robin and Katie - Katie's arms get tired at the top
and the forces the pair to give up; 10-minute max.
Beth and Derrick - Beth's lackluster performance
gives the Vets a sense of deja vu all over again;
Julie and Aneesa - Aneesa falls off twice, enough
said; 10-minute max.
Timmy and Brad - Completed in 2:45
As for the total times, we factor in that both teams
were penalized a total of 30 minutes. But two pairs
of each team did complete the course, so their times
will be the deciding factors.
The Veterans total time was 36:08, but the
Rookies...clocked in at a total of 33:37. So that
means the Rookies win this time around and the Vets
have Beth to blame for their loss. The Rookies now
have $70,000 in their team bank account while the
Vets are stuck at $50K. As for Kina, she wins a
T-Mobile Sidekick 2 including a year subscription to
The Vets make their deliberations as they decide to
conduct a ballot vote, and they choose Aneesa to
play against Beth in the Gauntlet. Then the wheel
lands on..."Beach Brawl". Much to Aneesa's explosive
reaction and Beth has the look of a deer caught in
Over at the Gauntlet just before the "Beach Brawl"
game would begin. Beth unexpectedly decides to not
do the game, because she won't put any baby oil on
her body and fight her, because she claims that's
very low-class and isn't interested in participating
in it. T.J. thinks Beth is scared, but she thinks
she isn't. Beth claims that she won't compromise
values and beliefs, but the Vets could care less
Back at home base as Beth goes home she gives her
final thoughts. "Veterans, you gotta smarten up! You
got to get Aneesa out of there now that she's
captain. I'm sure that she'll take you very far with
her cigarettes and her asthma and her mouth, so have
a good time." In my opinion Beth, you should be in
the Reality TV Villians Hall of Shame along with
Omarosa, Trisha, and Johhny Fairplay (or as I would
call him, Johnny Can't Play Fair).
The Vets in the end have their victory with Beth out
of the picture, but will that help them get back in
the saddle, you'll have to find out 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.
