"Riddle Me This"
- May 16
On the night after the Inferno, both the Good Guys and
the Bad Asses are out partying at the local nightclub.
Both Landon and Derrick have had quite a few drinks.
They begin playing around with each other which leads
to them wrestling against the van and on the street.
While Landon is slightly scraped up, Derrick ends up
with a lacerated ear. When they arrive back to their
lodges, Landon is now black out drunk and collapses
asleep on his bed. Everyone then begins writing things
on his back such as "Enter Penis Here", "I Love
Landon", etc. Derrick returns from the hospital with
stitches on his ear. He then decides to get back at
Landon by shaving a part of his hair off his head,
leaving him with a bald spot. Note to Landon, don't
mess with Derrick, under the influence or not.
The next morning, Landon wakes up to find the "novel
written on his back" and a bald spot. Derrick and him
laugh about it, and they try to decide what to do
about it. Landon decides to shave his head down the
middle, leaving him with a little hair on the sides.
Back in the first Inferno, Abe showed us the Mohawk.
Now Landon shows us a much different haircut. He likes
it, mentioning it looks cool on him. Tonya still has
beliefs that Tina, Rachel, and Veronica think of her
as a weak link and exclude her. But Tonya still is
capable of doing the challenges no matter what they
say. Julie comes to Tonya with some support.
The teams receive their next clue via text messaging
and they're being told to be ready to leave by 11 AM
and to wear team colors, swimsuits, and sneakers.
The teams arrive at Isla Navidad for their next
mission that's aptly called "Riddle Me This". Each
team has a piñata of a cow and a wolf, a haystack, and
a rowboat. The teams must solve the riddle and
transport the items across the lake in accordance to
what the answer to the riddle requires. Only their
arms and hands are allowed for rowing. Already, Julie
believes she knows the answer to the riddle. The cow
can't be left alone with the hay because it will eat
it. Likewise, the wolf can't be left alone with the
cow because it will eat it.
During their strategizing, the BAs are really
beginning to butt heads. The level of their arguments
have been increasing each mission, and now they've
raised their bar. The GGs on the other hand, couldn't
be more unified. As the mission starts, the teams go
to their separate boards and then open their covers to
reveal the following...
Your team must get a cow, a wolf, and a stack of hay
across the lagoon to the island. You can only carry
one item at a time in your boat. You can't leave the
cow and the wolf toghether or the wolf will eat the
cow. You can't leave the cow and the hay toghether or
the cow will eat the hay. The first team to safely get
all three items to the island will win this challenge.
They start working together and, sure enough, Julie
was right about the riddle. Both teams must now
transport the items. The BAs seem to have the early
lead at first, but then water begins to get into their
boat and have an affect on their rowing. They all
start screaming and yelling at each other during the
mission, while the GGs are a few inches ahead of them.
To get ahead, they decide to try and block the GGs'
boat to prevent them from leaving the dock.
Unfortunately their plan backfires when their team
boat starts sinking and they must evacuate their boat.
The GGs reach the shore first and win the mission.
They then sit back and laugh at the BAs' situation.
It's clear that, on the Bad Ass team, their forceful
personalities are clashing. Everyone wants to take
charge and nobody on that team is really thinking
clearly. Rachel belives that time has finally caught
up with them. They have been fighting all this time,
and they've always managed to win. But this time, it
has bitten them right in their bad asses. The team
decides they should try and work together more.
Dave congratulates the Good Guys on winning "Riddle Me
This" as he gives the check for $10,000 to be added to
their team bank account. The Good Guys now have $50,00
in their TBA while the Bad Asses still have $60,000.
Now it's time for nominations for the upcoming
Inferno. It's a women's Inferno this time, and the
teams break off to make their decisions.
The Good Guys have their deliberations over who they
should pick. Julie says she's confident going against
Veronica. Shavonda and Jamie say that if they are
going in, Tonya is their best bet. With the Bad Asses,
on the other side of the coin, it's no question. They
decide unaimously to nominate Julie. The BAs think
Julie is the strongest Good Guy female right now, and
they want to take her out. They warn Veronica that if
Julie knows she's going in, she's going to probably
gun for Veronica. But Jodi's infamous vote switch
leaves Veronica to wonder if they will target her
again and switch their vote. Rachel goes over to the
Good Guys' lodge and asks them if they plan on
switching their vote again. The GGs say no and they'll
play clean, but Julie silently admits to herself that
she's thinking about it.
It's now time to announce the nominees for the dreaded
Inferno. The Bad Asses choose Julie this time. Before
the Good Guys announce, Veronica gets up thinking it's
going to be her. But they didn't and they call out
Tonya instead. The two women now must prepare for
battle against each other. Tina, who we all know
doesn't really like Tonya, is anticipating the
Inferno. She jokes that it's a match between the Devil
Will the Good Guys win the next mission to even up the
Will Julie survive elimination?
Tune in next time on the Inferno II.
