The champs are struggling to decide how
to handle Wes as Jonny comes up with a plan to send KellyAnne to the
Ruins against Evelyn. Then KellyAnne talks with her BFF, Evelyn
about a few things which I won't mention where like they've done in
The Island. KellyAnne says Ev is 55 percent of the reason why she's
here. Both Ev and KellyAnne are in the same position of being strong
women, but are on the same team with weak, insecure ones. Johanna
has never shown respect to KellyAnne because of her personality.
Johanna wants wes to compromise and meet
the team half-way. Wes thinks Johanna is having a hard time
understanding where he's coming from. Johanna really doesn't care to
see Wes with KellyAnne, mainly because there's something about her
that she dislikes.
The subject of their conversation then
shifts to Johanna and her hook-up with Kenny on the Island. That's
when Johanna says she's done protecting Wes and that goes ditto for
trying to be his friend.
The teams get the clue to their next
> It's time to get into the swing of
things at tomorrow's challenge. Wear your bathing suits and team
The challengers are down two players and
they really want a win. Evan talks about a few things that makes his
team champions. They all know how to lie, cheat, steal, and screw
one another over in the hopes of a little bit of cash. That's what
separates them from the challengers.
Johnny knows Wes is not playing with a
team, he's playing for himself, and KellyAnne's the closest thing to
family that he's got. So now Johnny and the rest of the champs are
going to go after his friends and family. They set their sights on
their first target, KellyAnne.
The champs then hatch a plan to throw
her under the bus against her best friend Evelyn. Evan first sees
the challenger girls win because they don't have to go into the
ruins. He also sees that the champions win because they just get to
upset Wes a bit more.
Sarah is not necessarily against
KellyAnne, but what do they expect when she's sleeping with the
other team. Sarah wants people on her team that are going to be on
her team. The fix is in and they've got 20 minutes to lock their
The challengers team has Casey and
Shauvon volunteering themselves into the Ruins with the latter
having an accurate reason for doing so. Brad believes there's more
to Casey's volunteering than what she's telling to the challengers.
The teams now go to the Port of Phuket
where they make their nominations. Wes then presents the most fair
thing possible and see whether or not his teammates will take the
bait. Everyone agrees to it knowing very well that the first chance
they get, they're going to throw his girlfriend, KellyAnne, into the
ruins...and NEVER pull names out of a hat. Wes thinks he has made
peace with his team.
The champs nominate Derrick, Wes,
Bananas (Johnny), Katie, Susie, and Evelyn. The challengers then
nominate Cohutta, Nick, Danny, Shauvon, Casey, and KellyAnne.
Challenge #2: Swing on By
There are two platforms separated by a fence suspended up above the
water. One by one, each person will take their turn using the rope
to swing from the launch pad, then going around the fence, and
landing on the pad. Once a player is on the landing pad, they must
stay on there. If a player falls off at anytime, they must take
another swing until they've made a successful landing. This is a
timed event, and the team who has all their players on the landing
pad in the fastest time wins the challenge, split another 20K, and a
Host T.J. tells the champs that they
have to sit out one guy and one girl for this challenge. First one
out is Katie, because she sucks in the opinion of her team. The next
one out is Syrus, because he isn't as good as his teammates. Since
the champs have won the previous challenge they decide which team
will go first. Evan then decides to have the challengers set the
pace. Fast forward to Casey taking her turn, she was trying her butt
off, but it wasn't deemed a successful landing which might be
causing some suspicion from her teammates.
Shauvon then takes her turn, but she
ends up landing completely wrong in the water, causing the champs to
bust out laughing. Then before Shauvon takes her second she feels
that something is wrong with her, but Danny, her teammates, and the
champions won't let her quit. Shauvon takes her second swing, and
she ends up in the water again causing her pain and is then sent to
the hospital. And this ends the challengers turn with only 11
players being successful.
The champs now take their turn, and
they're doing this challenge like they've been practicing it every
day. All 12 out of the 12 players participating manage to have
successful swings making the champs the winners.
Derrick, Wes, Johnny, Katie, Susie, and
Evelyn get the position of power as they're back at homebase for
their deliberations and votes. Wes and Nick have been selected for
the guys. Evelyn wants to go up against Casey, but Johnny says no
although Wes would be cool with it. Johnny says the reason the
champs won the last two challenges is because of Casey and Shauvon.
Johnny doesn't want to see either one of them gone, especially at
this point in the game. Then Suzie wants Ev to go into elimination,
but she doesn't want to go against KellyAnne. Then Johnny says to Ev
that as a team, the girls wanted to have her against KellyAnne and
he backs the guys on that decision. This piece of information
blindsides Evelyn just as much as Wes. Wes then figures out that
both teams have staged a coup, and KellyAnne and Ev are about to get
screwed. This leads to a shouting match with Johnny before T.J.
returns. Since the decisions for the female players competing in the
next elimination game haven't been made, they're going to have to
vote right now with no more delibrations. Derrick decides how the
team wants him to and he chooses Evelyn and KellyAnne for the girls.
Both Wes and Ev leave saying the challenge is over.
After their votes didn't go their way,
both Wes and Ev bring on destruction and snap at their teammates,
while Kenny is enjoying every minute of it. KellyAnne sees that the
champs have reached a new low. But Susie is worried that Wes could
act violent. Wes is being more mad at Johnny than at Kenny to show
what a lowlife the former is.
Ev isn't going to help her team win as
she already had made that mistake on the Island when she sold her
soul to the devil with her enemies. Those are the same ones Ev's
dealing with in the Ruins and she isn't making the same mistake
again. Ev is now stuggling to decide whether or not to throw her
elimination game against KellyAnne.
Shauvon returns to homebase from the
hospital and then reveals the extent of her injury. She tells the
other players that she has suffered major damage in her chest area
down to her waist. So, unfortunately, Shauvon has to take herself
out of the competition, and this means Christmas has come early for
the challengers because she was awful in the challenges. It's a sad
day for Shauvon as she would have loved to prove to her teammates
that she's a strong player. As a parting gift, Danny gives her a
placard with her name and the $0 added to it.
Evan thought the champs had a good plan,
they all thought they could get rid of KellyAnne and further isolate
Wes. No one expected that Ev would join sides with the "dark forces"
and team up with Wes. As far as the champs are stacked with him,
though, Wes is as good as done in Johnny's own opinion. The bridges
that have been burned before have been torched and Wes needs to go.
The next session in the Ruins could be
Elimination Round: Shadowfighter
Two players will stand on two separate platforms while being tied
together by a series of ropes by the feet and hands. The players
involved must use the ropes to make their opponent fall off the
platform. The first player to do this three times wins.
Wes puts $2,800 on the line as he's up
against Nick, but they're battling as the rain falls. In the end,
Wes schools Nick in the art of shadowfighting, getting his $2,800
back into his account. Nick is the next guy to go home broke after
underestimating how tiring this game was.
The girls are up next with Evelyn
putting up $2,800 as she plays against KellyAnne. Ev then follows
her heart by not helping the champs win another challenge, so she
lets KellyAnne win. Susie never knew that Ev was a quitter. Kenny is
glad that everyboy sees what is really going on here is a bunch of
bull. The $2,800 goes to KellyAnne's bank account, making her the
only challenger to have any accrued money.
T.J. then tells Ev it was obvious what
happened here. He also tell's her that he really doesn't think
quitting is a part of this game. T.J. was really disappointed
becuase she wouldn't go out like that, but it was interesting to him
that Ev's hatred to her teammates was deeper than her love for
money. Ev goes home possibly knowing losing the elimination round to
KellyAnne was worth it.
Back at homebase, Johanna makes a
dangerous threat to Wes if that he keeps throwing challenges, she'll
sell the house and keep it all. Johanna makes this threat because
nothing in that house is in Wes' name and they'll end up in hers.
Wes now sees that Johanna does not get the concept of the word
Wes thought he was at a spot where he
could coast to the final. But Wes now finds himself back at square
