in the Gaps" - April 18
The show begins with Mike
and Jodi staying up late together. Jodi made a bet
that she really didn't make, but Mike insists she did.
The bet was if Jody loses on a card game, she would
strip and jump in the pool. Apparently she lost and
now she strips nude and jumps into the pool. Neither
Mike nor Jodi have mentioned what kind of card game
they played, but my guess would be poker.
Tina is with Rachel, Tonya, and Veronica over at their
bedroom. Tina shows off some of her model pictures to
Veronica. Tonya mentions that the other three girls
are a team and that she isn't part of it. They in no
way respect her and she's a joke to them. Jodi talks
with Derrick, a friend of her. Sure they have
friendship now, but it may soon be put to the test.
The teams receive their next clue on their T-Mobile
Sidekick II devices. They are told to go to the Grand
Bay Hotel tomorrow at 10:30 AM and to wear their
Speedo swimsuits and sneakers.
The next morning, the teams are now at the hotel for
their next challenge called "Fill in the Gaps". The
objective goes like this, there are two plexiglass
walls (one for each team). Behind each wall is a
200-gallon tank filled with water. The hoses connect
from the tank to the holes on the wall. The goal is to
hold back the water by blocking as many of the holes
as possible. The team who loses the most amount of
water in the quickest amount of time loses. The team
who keeps the most water in their tank in the longest
time wins. A team's time clock will stop when the
water in their tank goes below the marked line. Each
team will split up into two groups and two heats will
be played. One group of each team will play one heat
while the other groups will play the other heat.
The groups are the
being told by host Mirra a quick piece of
advice...which is to think "airtight." Dave sounds the
horn and the mission begins. The Good Guys tank has
50% of empty while the Bad Asses have 35% their tank
empty. Then the Good Guys' tank is 85% empty and the
Bad Asses' tank is 75% empty. When the clock reaches 3
minutes and 48 seconds, the Good Guys run out of
water. The Bad Asses win the first heat by being out
of water at 4 minutes and 10 seconds. We'll see if the
Good Guys can win the next heat.
The Good Guys are
trying their hardest while the Bad Asses are being
given good directing by Dan. But eventually the Good
Guys empty their tank first giving mission to the Bad
Asses. The BA's official time was 6 minutes and 11
seconds while the GG's official time was 5 minutes and
35 seconds. The Good Guys are now starting to feel
discouraged. They feel upset at the way that the Bad
Asses keep winning. Mike mentions that after the
missions they can't even look at them. After the Bad
Asses add another $10K, they now have $50K in their
TBA while the Good Guys still have $20K. Host Dave
announces that it's time for deliberations for the
Inferno. This time the women will take their turn.
During the deliberations, the Good Guys want to do
anything possible to win. They throw out the names
Tonya and Veronica. Jodi says that if she goes in,
she'd rather go up against Veronica. While Shavonda
and Jamie are feeling comfortable with Tonya. A plan
is made that if whatever name the Bad Asses call out,
when they go first, they will base their decision on
that at the last minute. Jodi believes that it's not
dishonest, we'll see about that. Meanwhile, the Bad
Asses are thinking about Jodi being the nominee, while
Derrick says he can't bring himself to vote for her,
since they are such good friends. We now see Derrick
and Jodi's friendship being put to the test.
It's now time for the teams to announce their Inferno
nominees. The Bad Asses go first and just as the Good
Guys plan, they nominate Jodi. Jodi then calls out
Veronica's name. Later, Rachel overhears the Good
Guys' plan and informs the Bad Asses about it, which
angers them. They think it was a shady move and they
are wimps for doing it. Even Derrick confronts Jodi
about it, telling her it was dishonest and unlike her.
Jodi denies the wrongdoing, although it hurt her
knowing Derrick is upset at her.
Later on that night, the conflict boils over with the
two teams. The Bad Asses angrily confront Jodi, Tina
said it was definitely a "punk ass" move on her part.
Jodi feels ganged up on, and the Bad Asses are using
intimidation on her and know she's not mentally ready
to take on the mess she just made. The Good Guys say
it was all part of strategy and don't feel guilty
about it. Mike tells Jodi the game always gets like
this, but she starts crying, buckling under the
pressure. And that's where this episode ends.
Will the Bad Asses intimidation send Jodi into the
Will the Good Guys bounce back from their losing
We'll find out the answers to these questions and much
more next time in the Inferno.
