"What A Drag" - May 9
After a night of partying at a local nightclub, both
teams get into their vans. The Good Guys start to get
playful and Mike grabs Brad's undershorts and starts
giving him an atomic wedgie. Mike did this as a joke,
but somehow Brad gets more and more irritated with it.
Then, the Miz plays a little too rough and rips the
elastic off Brad's undershorts which drives him into
insanity. Already a little drunk, Brad runs out of the
van and has a fit. The Good Guys continue their
laughter, not taking it that seriously. Back at the
lodges, it's clear that Brad's angry at Mike. Mike
doesn't see what the big deal is and tells Brad it was
just a joke, but Brad doesn't see much humor in it.
The teams receive their next clue telling them to
hurry up and catch the bus at 9:30 AM and to wear
sneakers and team colors.
It's now morning and it's also time for the next
challenge. Mike's amped, wanting to win either the
Life Shield or tonight's Inferno. And it is a very
anticipated Inferno, seeing that Abram and Mike are
two very strong competitors in the Inferno II.
Once the team's get to the location for their
challenge, they see host Dave driving a car down the
closed road. Dave hops out and welcomes the teams to
their mission, "What A Drag". This mission is a drag
race between two players. They must drive their cars
down the road and their time stops once they stop at
their finish line. In front of the finish line is a
wall of margarita glasses. If thier car hits the
glasses, they will be penalized with the slowest time
plus an additional 5 minutes. The team with the
fastest total time wins the mission and adds $10K to
their Team Bank Account. A player of each team who
completes their time trials the fastest will win the
Life Shields. The teams break off to decide the
driving orders and soon the mission starts. Although
he's not presently going to the Inferno, Brad wants to
win the Life Shield. He's worried that if Mike wins it
he'll send him into the Inferno.
1. Shavonda VS. Dan - Shavonda finishes at 14.86
seconds while Dan finishes at 15.54 seconds.
2. Jamie VS. Rachel - Rachel hits the finish line
first at 15.48 seconds. Jamie clocks in at 15.67
3. Julie VS. CT - During that race, CT's car breaks
down giving Julie the lead. Because CT has too much
muscle for the car, it's out of commission and the
races have been reverted to single slot races. CT
restarts his time trial establishing a time 14.46
seconds. Then Julie restarts her time trial clocking
in at 15.50 seconds.
The Good Guys are winning with 14.99 seconds. The Bad
Asses total time is at 15.16 seconds.
4. Tina has her turn to race setting up a time of
17.93 seconds. While Darrell estabilishes a time of
The Good Guys are still winning with a total time of
15.54 seconds. The Bad Asses are closing in on them
with a total of 15.85 seconds.
5. Tonya goes first clocking in 19.16 seconds. Brad
finishes with a time of 14.16 seconds.
6. Veronica goes first in meeting the rubber on the
road with a time of 16.83 seconds. Mike met the rubber
on the road faster with 14.01 seconds.
7. Derrick drives next with a time of 25.10 seconds.
Landon takes the car next, but in a moment of
stupidity, he crashed into the wall of glass giving
him the total time of 5 minutes and 25.10 seconds.
The Good Guys are now hoping that Abram screws his
race up to give them their back their win.
8. Abram goes last in the challenge and does break the
glass clocking in at 14.80 seconds.
And thus, the Good Guys did not recover from Landon's
screwup giving taking them out of their winning
streak. The BAs now have raised their TBA total to
$60,000. The GGs TBA total is still at $40,000. The
bad asses are now stoked to win again. They even take
a few steps to more team unification. And now the
winners of the Life Shield are revealed. CT of the BAs
won it with a time of 14.46 seconds. And Mike of the
GGs won it with a time of 14.01 seconds. Abram is
definitely going to the Inferno while Mike has to pick
Brad, Darrell, or Landon. Mike's very excited to have
won his third Life Shield and rubs it in the BAs faces
a bit. Now it's time to decide which of males are
going to be sent in Mike's place. The team decides the
only fair way is to draw names out of a hat. They do
so and Brad's name is drawn in coincidence. The other
guys encourage him, saying he can beat Abram. Darrell
mentions he's feeling a little bad about it because he
feels he has had the lesser performance in the
The nightfall is here and so is the Inferno! Everyone
knows it is going to be the most intense Inferno yet.
Abram will be competeing and Mike (the Life Shield
winner) decides to have Brad take his place. Both the
men are such strong assets to their teams that it
would hurt their teams greatly if they were to be
eliminated. Tonight's Inferno game is called "Balls
In". Both players will start with 5 balls. The object
is for them to try and move past their opponent and
dunk the ball into the basket placed in the middle of
a drawn circle. Hmmm, it kinda sounds like the
Powerball event on American Gladiators. If they leave
the circle with the ball in their hand, it's
considered a dead ball. Also, if the ball is knocked
out of their own hands, it's also considered a dead
ball. Getting the ball in the basket is worth 1 point,
and the player with the most points at the end gets to
The game starts and Abram does all he can to analiate
Brad including talking trash. Both Abram and Brad let
themselves loose in this game. You can feel the
tension in the air in the game as both men fight,
push, and struggle to prove themselves. Abe went first
in scoring goals while Brad did the defending. When
Abe's turn is over, he scored three points. Then the
roles are reversed with Brad scoring goals and Abe
defending. After four balls were used up, Brad has two
points. He needs the last ball to count, but at the
last moment...he missed! Oh, what an upset! Abe wins 3
to 2 taking out Brad of the GGs best players. Tina
mentions the BAs are taking the Good Guys out one by
That means Brad will be going home tonight. Abram
feels great after winning, and yells up to the Good
Guys for anyone else to come and take him on. This
rubs Darrell the wrong way as he gets mad, telling
Abram he'll kick his ass if he talks like that again.
His team tries to calm him down as they say goodbye to
Brad. The Good Guys take the loss pretty hard, knowing
how valuable Brad is to their team and how much
they'll truly miss him.
With Brad gone, will the Good Guys get back to their
winning streak or get pummeled by the Bad Asses on the
Find out next time in the Inferno II.
