Blind Turst - March 13
At the top of this
episode, Randy comforts Kina because she's being
branded this "captain" and knows that it's pretty
much a death sentence. And to deal with that on top
of her boyfriend and everything else involved in the
game and it would be horrible for Kina to be the
last girl sent home from the last girl Gauntlet.
Then Randy and Kina devise a plan for when their
team loses the next challenge; And that's to fight
against the weakest female player on her team in the
The teams receive their next clue...
>TRUST ME! THIS PICTURE PERFECT CHALLENGE WILL
BLINDSIDE YOU! Wear your bathing suits and tennis
shoes, and be ready to leave by 9:30 AM.
According to Aneesa, knowing it's a girls Gauntlet
is probably the worst feeling she has ever had since
being there. And she may have to fight against
another female player in the Gauntlet, should her
team lose the next mission.
The teams go to the Port Authority for their next
challenge, "Blind Trust". There two platforms
suspended 20 feet above the water, connected by a
balance beam. And above the beam, there are pictures
of their whole team hanging up overhead. Each player
will walk across the beam collecting a picture of
themselves and a of a remaining team member that's
not participating in this challenge. Oh, and the
beam has different-leveled speed bumps that could
hinder their progress. To begin, the first player
will go across without a blindfold. Every player
after the first will be blindfolded, then at the end
point, they'll place the pictures in their
respective boxes. Once they place their pictures,
they must then take off their blindfold and then
coach the next player in line. Each player will have
a ten-minute time limit, and if a player falls off
the beam, they get the full maximum automatically as
a penalty. The first to get their entire team across
in the fastest time wins the day's challenge.
This time T.J. tells the Rookies that they have to
sit out one female and one male player in which both
of them will be exempt from the Gauntlet. And Kina
chooses Jodi to and M.J. to sit this one out. The
Rookies go first, starting with Ibis...
ROOKIES' RUNNING ORDER
1) Ibis - 1:09
2) Randy - 5:09
3) Jillian - 6:55
4) Alton - 8:39
5) Kina - 9:50
6) Landon - 3:41
7) Susie - 6:48
8) Jamie - 3:25
VETS' RUNNING ORDER
1) Katie - 2:00
2) David - 4:54
3) Derrick - 4:40
4) Julie - 5:07
5) Mark - 6:09
6) Robin - 4:54
7) Timmy - 4:31
8) Aneesa - 7:25
Well, sure the challenge involved no small feat, but
none of the players fell off the beam. And the total
cumulative times are...the Vets with 40:10 and the
Rookies with 45:46. The Vets win this time out and
they now have $60,000 in their team bank account
with the Rookies' still sitting on $80K. And Aneesa
wins a trip for two to Fiji furinshed by STA Travel
including airfare and hotel.
In the deliberation, Kina makes a difficult decision
by choosing to play aginst Jillian in the final
women's Gauntlet. Then the wheel lands on..."Sticky
Situation"...finally, something different. Jillian
doesn't think that Kina made a good decision because
there are other people on other team that haven't
stepped up and messed up.
In "Sticky Situation" the object for the two players
is to stop their opponent from passing them and
sticking a ball to a target. The first player to
score three points will stay for the remainder of
In the end, Kina wins another Gauntlet 3-1 over
Jillian. Kina is now guaranteed to play in the final
mission for the handsome reward. But this might come
at a price as Timmy says her elmination means a lot
for the Vets as it's going to definitely hurt the
Rookies in the finals.
As Jillian packs up her personal property, she's
very unhappy and it's hard for her to put on a happy
face and she goes home pissed. But the Rookies have
the beast (referring to Kina) here for the upcoming
finals as she hasn't been able to finish in previous
competitions according to M.J., he'll be one mad
redneck if they lose the final mission.
But before the final challenge, one more male player
will be gone. And with Jillian out of the picture,
will there be damage done to the Rookies and will
there me more of a benefit for the Rookies with the
big finish just days away?
Those questions may be answered in the next episode
of the Gauntlet II.
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.
