Moving Pyramids -
So far, the Gauntlet arena has seen more quitters,
jerks, and loudmouths than the bloodthirsty
competitors. But this all changes when an old score
needs to be settled.
Danny's been butting heads with Rookie teammate Jodi
because he's still feeling that she was the reason he
was sent home from Road Rules Extreme. The teams then
wear their thongs
and g-strings (no that's not a mistype) for their next
challenge to see who's "on top" of things.
The next challenge is called "Moving Pyramid" where
teams have to have form a human pyramid. In that, the
player at the top must grab as many flags as they can
and place them
onto their belts. If their pyramid breaks down, they
must regroup with a different player at the top. The
teams are given one hour to collect as many up to 16
flags as they can.
In the end, the Rookies collected 15 out of 16 flags
as they cross the finish line. They did this thinking
that the Vets won't make it after getting their last
flag. But they thought wrong as the Veterans win their
second mission in a row. The Vets now have $20,000 in
their team bank account while the Rookies still have
$10K in theirs. And this is the first time in the
Gauntlet II that male Vet captain Derrick has received
a $1,000 Best Buy Gift Card.
The tension comes to a head after the Rookies lost the
next mission. While Ace and the Vets celebrate their
victory, Danny gets mad at Jodi, accusing her of
having always had it out for him. This meltdown might
have helped Danny blow off some steam, but it also had
his teammates sent him to go head to head with Alton
in the Gauntlet. And by a spin of the ships wheel,
they'll play "Beach Brawl".
In "Beach Brawl" the two players must push and shove
each other until one of them is completely out of the
circle. But both players will be greased up in baby
oil to make things a
little difficult. It's a best of five match-up where
the first player to win three rounds gets control of
the male captain title. In the end, Alton makes short
work of Danny in a 3-0 shutout.
At the end of the show Danny has animosity towards his
team. He thinks they've lost a good competitor and may
lead to the Rookies loss for the competition as a
This is my last recap for the Gauntlet II on location
from Del Valle, TX. I'll be back next week at my
current home base of Cloquet, MN for the next episode
of The Gauntlet II. I hope you've had a Happy Holiday
whether it's Christmas, Kwanzaa, or Hanukkah and I'll
see you in 2006.
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.
