"Heart Rate Bungee" - June 13

We start off this episode with Tonya wanting to sleep early for the next challenge. Veronica and Rachel think she's gonna do an activity in bed which begins with the letter 'M' and ends with the letter 'E'. I'll give you readers some time to think about what that word is. Okay time's up. Rachel says that she and Veronica are making it look like they're ganging up on Tonya because she makes herself the outcast.

Veronica thinks about taking a picture of Tonya while she's sleeping. Tonya says taking pictures of her sleeping is an invasion of her privacy and tells Veronica to not go there. As we see footage of Tonya going to another room, she says she'll do anything to shut the other BA girls up. Tonya also mentions that she cares more about herself than the other BA girls.

Veronica then goes into the room where Tonya's trying to sleep. She tells Rachel and Veronica to walk away. Tonya's two challenges from winning and somehow, she doesn't need their friendship and doesn't need to fit in.

The teams receive their next clue on their T-Mobile Sidekick 2 devices. They're told to meet host Dave at the Grand Bay Marina and wear swimsuits, team colors, and sneakers.

The teams end up at the Grand Bay Marina for their next challenge "Heart Rate Bungee". Each of the players will pair up with another player from the same team as they'll be performing a tandem bungee jump. The object is for the players to have their heart rates under 100 BPM. In each turn, both players from the same team must get their heart rates to be lower than 100 BPM. Once that happens, the trap doors will open and they'll dropped from the platform. The team with the lowest average time wins the challenge and $10K to be added to their TBA. And the members of each team who have the lowest heart rates will win the 'life shields'. And since there's an uneven number of players remaining, one member of each team will go twice. They'll only be scored for the 'life shield' on the first trial. When two players from one team are on the trap doors, two players from the opposing team can heckle and taunt them.

BUT before the challenge begins, the teams now must nominate one player from the opposing team for the final Women's-Only Inferno. They'll have 30-minutes for the deliberations taking place in their tents. Tonya mentions that to have an even number of men and women's Infernos, they're going to have a women's Inferno without a challenge in between. So they're going to deliberate before the challenge starts.

In the deliberations, the Good Guys feel confident that Tonya's a weaker player. The Bad Asses, once again have a hard time with their deliberations, albeit a tense one. After the deliberations are over, the Good Guys nominate Tonya while the Bad Asses nominate Shavonda. Mike mentions that it's kind of almost like a win-win situation. If Shavonda wins, they get another player back. If she loses, they lose their weakest player, but they would also give the Bad Asses back their weakest player.

Here's a table of how the players did.

In the end, the Bad Asses averaged a time of 4 minutes and 8 seconds while the Good Guys averaged a time of 1 minute and 13 seconds. From the way things went in this challenge, the Good Guys win and they get another 10K to their TBA. They now have a total of $80,000 while the Bad Asses are stuck at $70K. Landon wins the 'life shield' with the lowest score of 65 BPM. C.T. also scored a 'life shield' with the lowest heart rate of 54 BPM. That means both Shavonda and Tonya are going to the Inferno.

The last Inferno game of The Inferno II is called "Spinner". In it the players will be strapped onto the giant rotating wheels. The wheels will be speeding up and slowing down at random points in the game. The objective is for the players to hold their team flag as long as they can. Whoever holds their flag the longest will return to their team to battle for $150,000. The runner-up, on the other hand, will be the last one going home.

Host Mirra mentions that there are really no rules in this game except that if a player vomits, pass out, or shouts "I give up!", it'll mean an automatic loss.

In the end, the wheel became too much for Shavonda to handle forcing her to stop the mission. That means Tonya has been given a repreive while Shavonda is sent packing. She thinks her team has a good chance of winning, we'll see about that. After the last Inferno game, Tonya will be getting some rest and will also be looking for some team unity.

Seven members of the Bad Asses and four members of the Good Guys remain. Which of these teams will win $150,000?

The final challenge will commence next week on the Inferno II.
