Piece By Piece - March
We start off this
episode with Kina talking to Alton about whom to
send into the Gauntlet if they lose the next
mission. They think they'll send Randy in if that
happens. That's according to Kina on the team
consensus when she talks to Ibis.
Over in the kitchen Aneesa, Julie, Robin and Katie
make cookies for the Veteran guys who are nervous
for the upcoming mission. Outside Randy talks to
Kina about him hoping to win the next challenge or
the last Gauntlet game if it could lead to that.
Randy knows that his butt is on the line if the
Rookies lose the next challenge according to team
Back inside home base, Robin, Julie, Katie and
Aneesa send the baked cookies over to the Veterans
Men room. Then all the players join toghether at the
dinner table and get their next clue...
>Hey Challengers, I hope you brought your ice
Actually Timmy made it up, but the text message
>We're getting down to the wire! Don't let things
come apart! Take a ride with me tomorrow at Canoe
Bay at 9:30 AM.
There's nothing more Mark would like to do than to
save Derrick from going into the Gauntlet and having
a chance to go home. And he'll do everything in his
power to keep him in here and not send him in what
he calls the Pirate-filled sandbox.
The teams end up in Canoe Bay and are greeted by
host Lavin who's riding what I beleve is a BMX-style
bike. It will be a part of their next challenge
called "Piece By Piece". The objective is for their
teams to disassemble their bike (BTW: they have T.J.
Lavin's autograph on them), put it back toghether,
and race it. Each team will be separated into two
sub-teams, the disassemblers and the assemblers. The
disassemblers will run to their BMX bike to take it
apart (as the name implies) piece by piece using the
tools provided. Also the teams will be equipped with
walkie-talkies so the disassemblers will tell the
assemblers what's going on. Then the assemblers will
put the bikes back toghether then the team captains
will ride them to the start/finish line. If a team's
bike is put toghether incorrecly or if there are
pieces missing, they must go back to the assembly
area to fix it. The team whose correctly-assembled
bike crosses the finish line wins this challenge.
The Rookies gain the advantage as they've completed
the first stage. And unfortunately, the Vets
couldn't catch up as Alton successfully crosses the
start/finish line with the correctly built bike. The
Rookies add one more $10K check for a total of
$90,000 in their team bank account while the Vets
stay at $60,000. And alton wins a Schwin T.J. Lavin
Series BMX bike (featured in the mission you've
seen). While the Rookies celebrate their victory,
the Vets have to go through losing one more player
in the final Male Gauntlet.
For the last time, the Vets have their deliberation.
But the decision for an opponent of Derrick has
become a very difficult one. Derrick decides and
insists to have a ballot vote. But it ended up a
split decision between Timmy and David and called
for a re-vote, and then once again ended up another
tie. Then during a discussion the teammates get
upset and Derrick hasn't stepped up, and then and
then gets mad because of their teams indecision and
breaks the table. Then Timmy decides to step up and
be his challenger. Then T.J. tells Derrick to spin
the wheel for him and it lands on "Reverse
Tug-of-War". At this point Timmy doesn't believe in
this game and it's better off that he goes home.
Even if he does lose the Gauntlet game it wouldn't
have mattered to him, because of so much diversity
going into the finals. But David wants Timmy to stay
in the game and wants to see Derrick gone.
At the Gauntlet in "Reverse Tug-Of-War" the stage is
set for the Vets as they have to watch two of their
most beloved players go head-to-head to make it to
the end in the most emotionally charged Gauntlet of
the competition. If you've been following this
season, you'll have noticed that in recent Male
Gauntlet games Derrick had managed to hold onto his
captain title four consecutive times, which was no
surprise to Mark. Will Derrick hold onto his captain
title for the fifth consecutive time, or will he
finally go down?
Well we won't find out now, but we will at the start
of the next week's 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.
