Up" - April
At the top of the show...
Rachel mentions that the game has just begun. Derrick
just didn't feel right around such crookedness.
Veronica shouts out the Good Guys they'll be on the
naughty ones next time. Veronica's concern right now
is the Inferno, she has to go in there and beat Jodi.
According to Veronica, if the Good Guys team thinks
they can pull one on her, they've got another thing
coming. Veronica mockingly asks if she would like to
throw someone else's clothes in the pool right now.
Her teammates get a good laugh out of it.
There is no laughing matter for the Good Guys though.
Jodi mentions that the people aren't happy with what
happened last night. But as long she has the other
Good Guys behind her, she doesn't care what the BAs
say to her. Jodi's hoping to win the 'life shield' in
tomorrow's mission. Brad tells Jodi that the only
person that can beat her is herself. He's worried that
the pressure may cause Jodi to buckle. Brad also says
the team can not afford to lose her.
The teams pick up their T-Mobile Sidekick IIs to
receive their next clue. They're instructed to be
ready to leave at 11 AM wearing team colors and
sneakers. And also to get ready to live it up. The GGs
are down three missions at the moment and they're
dying to get a win according to Brad. The teams end up
at the location for the next challenge called "Zip
Up". 100 meters up atop of the crane are two identical
lines. The goal is to travel across the lines as far
as possible. Players will be suspended from a zip
line. Below them are travel lines that they'll be used
to pull themselves across the line. Meter markers are
attached to the lines to indicate how far they've
traveled. When the horn is sounded, the two-minute
time clock begins. The team logs the longest total
distance will win the challenge and add $10,000 to
their team bank account. And a member of each team who
travels the farthest distance will each win the 'life
shield'...and a 42' flat-panel DELL TV screen. Mike
really doesn't care about the life shield, he wants
the 10Gs and the plasma tv.
HEAT 1: Abram VS. Mike - Abram takes the Superman
position while Mike gets a little caught off guard.
Mike is in the standing position which gave him a
disadvantage giving Abram the early lead for the BAs
20.2 Meters to 17.3 Meters.
HEAT 2: Dan VS. Jamie - Dan pulled off a 16.4
Meter-16.2 Meter lead over Jamie. It was THAT close!
Jamie really made it up in the last 30 seconds.
HEAT 3: Tina VS. Shavonda - Tina moved along smartly
with 18.0 Meters. Shavonda struggled and ended up with
According to CT, they thought the Good Guys team was
gonna be tougher than they really are. He thinks that
mentally the BAs are starting to beat the GGs down and
starting to wear them down physically.
After three heats, the GGs logged a total of 47.4
Meters while the BAs logged a total of 54.6 meters.
The BAs lead by 7.2 Meters, so they are winning, but
we're not done yet.
HEAT 4: Tonya VS. Darrell - Darrell moved 20.2 Meters
father on his line. Tonya moved 15.8 Meters on her
line. The GGs are now in the process of catching up.
HEAT 5: Derrick VS. Julie - They were neck and neck
until Derrick gets ahead. Julie prays to get strength
to continue her pull. Unfortunately the praying didn't
help for Julie and will only settle for 20.4 Meters.
Derrick did a much better job with 26 Meters even.
He's hoping no one else goes farther than 26 Meters.
Going into the 6th heat, the BAs are winning 96.4 to
HEAT 6: Veronica VS. Jodi - Jodi had good progress
adding 21.2 Meters to the GGs total. Veronica bit the
dust, so to speak, adding 15.8 Meters to the BAs
Jodi has got a confidence boost after her heat, but
according to Veronica that doesn't mean she's gonna
HEAT 7: Rachel VS. Brad - Brad took a big lead in this
heat, 28 Meters even to 19 Meters even over Rachel.
HEAT 8: CT VS. Landon - Landon wins the heat adding
33.5 Meters to the GGs total score. C.T. managed to
add 26.2 Meters to the BAs total score.
And that's it, the final results are in. The BAs
recorded a total of 157.4 Meters. But, the GGs won
this challenge with a recorded total of 170.7 Meters!
The GGs TBA has been raised to $30,000 while the BAs
still have $50,000 in theirs. CT and Landon's big
scores got themselves the 'life shield' and the plasma
TV. And since neither Jodi nor Veronica have won the
shield, they'll definitely be competing in the
Inferno. Jodi's feeling confident about what's to
come, but Veronica thinks she'll be overconfident.
The teams take ther places in the Inferno. There's no
way out now for Veronica and Jodi, except for winning.
The next Inferno game is called "That's a Wrap". The
objective is for the players to mummify themselves.
They must grab the cloth to be wrapped tightly around
themselves by spinning around. Then they must run
across the court and to rip their flag off to signal a
win. Whoever wins this Inferno challenge will return
to their teammates. The runner-up on the other hand,
will be sent packing. Brad's still confident that Jodi
can win as long as she keeps her head in the game and
stays focused. Landon gives her advice on how to win
The game begins, but Jodi ran into trouble with the
cloth rapping. That affected the outcome when Veronica
gets done with the wrap-up, she gets to the flag and
rips it out. Ultimately, the GGs nomination of
Veronica proved Jodi's downfall. Veronica and the Bad
Asses were so happy and excited that they don't have
to see Jodi any more. Jodi feels sad after that loss.
Rachel mentions that because Veronica won, she also
won because she would go crazy without her. For
Derrick, it sucked seeing Jodi leave. She was a huge
part of the Good Guys according to Landon. On Jodi's
final video message, she tells the Good Guys to do so
well, win all the missions and get rid of all the Bad
We end this episode by Veronica saying, "For all you
good guys out there that think that you guys finish
first, it ain't gonna happen this time. It ain't gonna
Will Jodi's departure prevent the Good Guys from
You won't know the answer unless you see the next
episode of the Inferno II. Good bye folks!
