In our last episode, Evan and Veronica
took their relationship to the next level. Tonya's drinking has made
her an 'easy target' for ridicule. The challengers have finally won
a challenge, but they've continued to lose players in the Ruins,
leading them to a decline in morale.
Katie's drunken antics become a source
of entertainment for Kenny, Evan, and Johnny. Katie finds a plunger
on her bed and angrily assumes that either Kenny or Evan put it
there. KellyAnne feels like they are truly getting off on being
d***s. Kenny was doing this to break Katie down and let her know
that she's 'dead weight', ugly, and serves no purposes to their
team. The challengers are stressed out and there isn't much fat to
be trimmed. They need to pool toghether and need to be really smart
about how they go forth in the Ruins.
Over at another room Tonya once again
goes into her drunken antics, which have also become a source of
entertainment for Kenny, Evan and Johnny for quite a while. Wes sees
this situation as Tonya being a ticking time bomb for whom she feels
like they've crossed that line. Tonya has definitely worn out her
welcome and vows to stop drinking. According to Brad, Tonya is in a
situation where she just got divorced, but she has to get her s**t
Katie knows that Kenny and Evan will be
definitely trying to get rid of her very soon. Katie doesn't like
how Kenny and Evan think they can control every team they've been on
and use the girls as much as they can to get what they want thinking
It's now clue time, so...here it is...
Has your team burned more bridges
that it's built? Wear your bathing suits and your team uniforms.
For the second night in a row, Katie
sees the plunger in her bed. And at this point, she takes her issues
with Kenny and Evan out on Sarah. Johnny didn't think any of them
were prepared for the hell that came out of Katie. After that had
occured, Sarah went out of the room.
Evan and Kenny's goal is to get Sarah to
feel welcome after Katie got her upset. Sarah hopes that Katie's
words are not the thoughts of other people. Evan then gives a boquet
of flowers to Sarah and is now feeling welcome.
After the teams have their 10-minute
deliberations, they've nominated...
Danny, Cohutta, Sarah, Casey, and Kimberly
Champions: Tonya, Katie, Susie, Darrell,
Derrick, and Johnny
Challenge: Burning Bridge
The object of this challenge is to build
themselves a floating bridge all the way out to their team raft, and
then light it on fire. On T.J.'s signal, one person must run to the
water to grab their first piece of the bridge. To retrieve that
piece, they must release it from its anchor, and put it in its place
on the bridge. When a team's bridge is 100% done, one player must
then run across it to light up the raft with their torch. The first
team do accomplish this wins this challenge.
The challengers were having the lead
until Casey has her turn. She's struggling so much that the champs
are catching up to them, eventually taking the lead. Casey doesn't
have enough breath to stay down in the water, which doesn't bode
well for the challengers. In the end Casey slowed her team down
enough to give the champs the win, $20K, and each of the players a
Tonya, Katie, Susie, Darrell, Derrick,
and Johnny now get to do the matchmaking for the next Ruins
elimination round. Eventually, Darell decides to take on Danny and
Katie opts to go against Sarah. Katie picks Sarah, because she's new
to the challenge. Katie talks a big game about how she's a fierce
competitor. But according to Susie, the champs don't really care if
Katie comes back because she stinks in the challenges. Susie is sure
Katie is picking up on that vibe.
Sarah has a good chance at to win in the
Ruins and is confident in her own abilities. Sarah also says that
whoever wants it more is going to come out the winner, and she wants
the win so bad.
It's really no big secret that Danny was
picked by Darrel to play against him in the Ruins. If Darrell wants
to take Danny on, then good for him, but it won't be a cakewalk this
Just when the champions thought they
have a little hope, here comes Tonya who gets what Ibis calls "schmammered".
According to Johnny, Tonya has always kind of been one of the most
unstable, knucklehead females that he has ever done a challenge
with. And tonight, she has just stepped it up to a defcon 5 mode.
Then Tonya brings up a moment from the Inferno II where she
allegedly did something naughty which won't be mentioned here as was
told by Veronica who thought it was funny. But it wasn't funny to
Tonya who's still upset at her for saying that. According to
Veronica, Tonya has different personalities and when she gets drunk,
she's like the United States of Tonya...it's crazy.
Tonya has let Veronica push her into a
corner and made her cry so many times, and she isn't backing down
for the first time in her life. Then Veronica says things about
Tonya which causes her to slap Veronica in the face enacting a
drunken brawl. Wes and Evan then had to separate them from
inflicting each other more pain. Veronica wanted to hit back, but
she's come too far in the challenge to do that. Veronica now has to
leave the room not realizing she did anything wrong. Then the field
producer, Teri, steps in to take Tonya home.
The rest of the champions came toghether
after the heated confrontation came to pass. Veronica still doesn't
understand that Tonya, who just attacked her, has everyone supporing
her. At this point Veronica breaks off her alliance with Wes, which
means no cuddling time for him anymore.
After Tonya has left homebase, Evan,
Kenny, and Johnny have had their fun with Tonya. Wes sees them as
being hypocritical, but Derrick doesn't want him to just single them
out. Wes's indifference upsets Evan and according to him, he is not
Oprah. Kenny doesn't understand why are they having this
Katie announces that the Ruins will
probably be her last challenge. Although Katie has said that before,
she misses her financee and is ready to move on with her life being
a wife and mother.
It's time once again to go into the
Elimination Round: Oh-Ring
The players involved will try to wrestle
a ring away from their opponent, while suspended above the ground.
The first player to wrestle the ring away from their opponent twice
Katie and Sarah proved to be fierce
competitors in what was described as "The Bad Girls Club" on
steroids. In the end, Sarah wins the match and gets $4,400 from
Katie, raising her total to $6,400. Katie goes home not only
disappointed, but also upset with her pride hurt. She'll remember
mostly from the challenge the insects and a room full of a-holes.
Danny gave it his best efforts, but they
weren't good enough as Darrell wins the elimination and gets $2,000
from him. Darrell is now up to $6,400, but Danny is leaving knowing
he had an awesome time on the challenge. T.J. then tells the plays
that because Tonya got sent home before tonights elminations, her
$4,400 now becomes bonus cash for the end of the season.
With the loss of Katie and Darrell being
back in the game, the champions are now just a little bit tighter.
It seems like they've got rid of the main crazy people. But Susie
thinks Veronica is close behind in the crazy department when
compared to Katie and Tonya. Now Wes and Kenny are starting to plot
politics, and that is when the game will get weird.
According to KellyAnne, since they've
got here, the people that have been in control were Evan and Kenny.
It sucks because if they don't have the politics down, then they're
Kenny and Evan are running this game,
and everybody feels that they're just a bunch of chauvinistic pigs.
But it comes a time when someone comes to them and say "I can't
swim" or " I can't run", what are they supposed to do with them? If
they were completely useless to anyone, why would the champs need
