Yer Balls" - April 11
We start the episode
with Karamo talking to Tina about the previous
deliberation with some of the BA guys for the
Inferno. Karamo is not feeling too confident about
what's to come in the competition. He talks to Dan
about how Landon would be easier to beat in the next
Inferno mission. Karamo also says he would rather
lose to Landon, than to Mike.
Over at the hot tub C.T.
talks to Abe about who they think is gonna win the
'life shield'. Abe thinks it would be either him,
C.T., or anyone except Karamo. We'll see if they're
right about that. The teams receve their next clue
on the T-Mobile Sidekick devices. They're told to
wear their swimsuits and sneakers and to get on the
bus tomorrow at 5 AM. The teams go to the beach for
the next mission where they meet host Mirra. This
next mission is called "Dodge Yer Balls", which is a
straight up game of dodgeball. The object is to
eliminate all the players from the opposing team.
They may do this by hitting an opposing player with
a ball or by catching a ball thrown by a member of
an opposing team. Both of the teams will split up
into two groups. The winners of each group will
then compete against each other in a final game to
determine the mission's winners. The winners of the
mission will add $10K to their team bank account. A
member of each team who performs the best will each
recieve the 'life shield'...and a Dell Inspirion
700m laptop computer. The teams are so stoked on
the rewards and Mike wants all of that. Oh...and
one more thing...they'll be playing dodgeball on the
floating platforms. When one group is playing, the
other group will be in the water to fetch the balls
and give them back to the team that's actually
playing at that time.
Then host Mirra gives
out some more information. Each player must
participate and each team will start with five balls
each. They can use the balls to defend themselves.
However, if they block a ball and their balls fall
out of their hands, then they're out. If a
deflected ball hits another teammate, they are not
out because it has to be a direct hit. If a player
catches a ball, they'll bring back someone else into
play. And thus ends the rules portion of the
The teams then set up
their order of play. While Rachel is helping the
Bad Asses set up their strategy, Karamo thinks
they're using too much of it. He says they're
playing simple dodgeball and it's either you can
catch it, or you're getting pegged. Karamo also
runs into another problem, the water at that beach
is cold and he hates cold water, this could be a
problem for the Bad Asses. The Good Guys have to
win this mission to balance this whole competition
according to Mike.
Both teams are ready
and have their orders. Then Dave asks if there's
anyone not participating. Karamo is starting to
make the choice of bowing out, but Tina interrupts
by saying he's participating. Host Mirra reminds
the players that they must participate. If they
don't participate, their individual team split up
will forfeit the match. Here are the pairings for
The Bad Asses know that
they're gonna eliminate them one by one. They've
talked Karamo a little bit into stepping into the
cold water. Then...all hell breaks loose! Some
members of the Good Guys team scream when they find
a snake in the water. Unfortunately, this isn't
helping Karamo's fear of the cold water and he
eventually bows out. Hey Karamo, how can you expect
to come a challenge and not get wet? Hello! C.T.
says Karamo is honestly not good to their team.
Because of his participation problem, it's kind of
easy to see why.
The mission begins when
the big blue ball (thrown by Dave) hits the water.
And just like that, C.T., Abe, Derrick, Rachel, and
Tina dominated in round 1. We then move on to round
2, but Karamo is staying put getting the Bad Asses
disqualified. That means the Good Guy group of
Brad, Darrell, Landon, and Mike win round 2. It all
comes down to the third and final round to determine
the challenge winners. The Good Guys fought tooth
and nail, but it wasn't enough to knock out the Bad
Asses giving them another win. The Bad Asses total
is now at $40,000 while the Good Guys total stays at
$20K. The recipients of the 'life shields' are
Landon for the Good Guys and C.T. for the Bad
Asses. They also each receive that Dell Inspiron
700m laptop computer. They've also got to decide if
they want to use the shields at the Inferno.
Landon talks to his
teammates about him sacrificing himself into the
Inferno, but Mike disagrees. Mike has never lost an
Inferno like that and he's a good pressure player.
According to Landon, if Mike goes into the Inferno,
he might actually kill Karamo. And of course Landon
doesn't want that and he wants that pleasure of
sending Karamo home.
The teams are now in
the Inferno and Landon is thinking about the
decision to save Mike. Mike and Karamo now enter
and walk to the center to Dave. Landon then decides
to sacrifice himself and save Mike, being confident
in his decision much to Mike's dismay. C.T. decides
not to save Karamo after his bow-out in the previous
mission thinking that he's definitely going home.
Tonight's Inferno game is called "Knock Your Block
Off". To objective is to knock off their opponents
block off their helmet while jousting. A hit below
the belt enacts a disqualification. If any of the
players step out of the perimeter, they'll be set
back in and restart. The gong sounds to start the
competition. In the end Landon wins rejoining the
Good Guys, and as for the Bad Asses, they'll
continue without Karamo. Abe, C.T., and Derrick
didn't give Karamo any goodbyes because, according
to Abe, he didn't have any dignity and does not
deserve respect. Karamo calls Abram, C.T., and
Derrick b*tches to him as he gives his final words
and leaves for home. As for Mike, he is relieved
that Landon won the Inferno game.
Closing this episode,
the teams go to a nightclub dancing and stuff. The
Bad Asses realize that the stress they endure is
helping them win.
Will the Bad Asses'
stress win them their next mission? Will the Good
Guys get back to their winning ways? We'll find out
the answers to these questions next time on the
