The Pit - March 6
At the top of this
episode we see Alton and Jodi seem to be getting
rather close these days. Their teammates are hoping
that it does not affect the team in any way. Ibis
tells Jodi that in her opinion, that it hasn't been
long enough for Alton to move on from his
ex-girlfriend. Kina's worried about her tendency to
look for love in all the wrong places and she wants
to have a good relationship with a good guy which is
hard to find in these situations.
The teams receive their next clue and it says...
>Good luck getting yourself out of this situation,
it's definitely going to be the pits.
The guys know that today is a Male Gauntlet Gay, but
no guy is worried because they are all fired up to
The teams end up at Angus Store Mangroves for their
next challenge, "The Pit". This is where each team
must get themselves out of a deep pit, using the
tools and things at hand. The team who gets all of
their players and the supplies out in the fastest
time will wins this challenge. Each team has 30
minutes to try and have the players make their
escape. Another way to win this challenge is to have
the most players out of the pit, in the event that
both teams run out of time. Once a player leaves the
put, he or she can't go back down or else their turn
will end in a disqualification. While one team is in
play, the team not playing will be sequestered so
that they won't get an unfair advantage.
One male player of the Rookies will not be playing
in this challenge and will also be exempt from the
Gauntlet; And the rookies sit out Randy.
The Rookies go first with team members just flying
out of the pit. In a last ditch effort to get their
last team member in the pit, Landon, Alton dangles
himself as a human ladder. In the end only Landon
was left in the pit giving themselves a score of
eight players out of nine. The Vets have their end
of the challenge to contend with and they also end
with a score of eight out of nine despite the best
efforts of Brad, Mark, and Timmy.
In the end, the Vets had eight players out in under
six minutes, while the Rookies got their last player
and equipment out in 26:29 giving them the win.
Their equipment made the difference this time and
they win an additional $10K to their team bank
account. The Rookies now have a total of $80,000 but
the Vets are still sitting on $50K. And Alton wins a
FinalScratch 2 DJ package for his team's efforts.
At the deliberation, the Veterans use the ballot
vote method to choose Brad to play against Derrick
in the Gauntlet. The wheel lands on "Captain's
Choice" and this time around Derrick chooses "Name
