Head of Nails
On the last uplink of
"Solitary", we continued to monkey around, as bananas went down, then
up. Then the Solitarians escaped their pods' cages in time for a little
game of golf that was anything but your usual round. Liberty was under
par, as a penalty had her ejected from the game due to a reversal of
fortune. But the treatment continues...
The pods, once more...
2) Rommel Gargoles
Martial arts instructor
3) Kelsey Thorn
7) Bea Hennington
high school teacher & missionary
6) Tyler Tongate
environmentalist/Solitary 2.0 runner up
#2 Rommel and #7 Bea
go spinning after another round of spinning and putting. Next
round, and round, and round... and the ladies go to the chair.
And once again, Kelsey is pushed to the brink. Bea, on the other
hand, has another penalty coming. And another. And Bea bails
out. Next hole, 25 spins, one ball, par 2. Both remaining
podlings are going spinning... except Kelsey, who opts for the
Rommel... spins. ... and
spins some more... kidding. TREATMENT ENDS. Welcome to the final 4.0.
Next, the Solitarians get to
punch their lights out on a bag, pretending it's the one thing that is
standing between you and victory. In reality, the only thing standing
between you and victory... is you.
Can they be as honest with
each other in the next reward? A chicken dinner is on the line. All you
have to do is guess how many hits you can lay on the punching bag.
Rommel's finally getting the
trick of Solitary. Or is he? Everyone gets chicken. Rommel gets a meal
bar. "You lied during the challenge. I thought I would lie to you."
TEST: Virtual Insanity
The Solitarians will
have to navigate through their virtual maze. The first to reach
the virtual green button will win real immunity from the next
Treatment. Along the way, you'll be challenged physically with a
40-pound grump rope and mentally with blocks. They'll also have
jellybeans (that's useless) and a compass (that's also useless)
to use as they see fit. There's only ONE way to the green
button, but there are eight dead ends, ten rope rooms, and 11
It's a race between Kelsey
and Tyler. WINNER... #3... times 2. Tyler takes his third Test, a first
in Solitary history, and moves one step closer to $50,000.
Now that the test is over,
it's time for the podlings to unwind with a personal item. Rommel plays
with ninja stars. Tyler plays with a djimbe drum. Kelsey plays with a
guitar... that she can't play. Bea, on the other hand, is trying to
remove evil spirits from her pod. She's going to exorcise the demons
from VAL... or herself... Was her exorcism successful? Only time will
VAL has become a part of
their everyday thoughts... and they don't even know it.
Next up, Solitary's first
air band. #7 on guitar, #2 on bass, #6 on drums, and on guitar and
keyboard, #3... Time to rock it out air style. That tests them
physically, and that's important, because what happens next is yet
another Solitary first...
TREATMENT: The Head of
Each podling gets a
chair with a crown of thorns. Literally. First one to buckle
under the pressure will leave Solitary permanently.
It'll take intense
concentration to last, especially with the chair also spiny. With each
round, the players will have to hook another chain to their crown and
add that much more weight.
Just for fun, #6 Tyler has
decided to sit in the chair to see what the others are going through.
The guests are breaking, as
VAL decides to show clips of themselves as they enter Solitary.
Heavy is the hat that wears
the crown... Round 9 starts... NOW.... and it ends with Bea hitting the
"I'm done." In more ways
than one, as she is the FIRST person to quit the Treatment. Bea, please
evacuate your pod.
And then there were three. But the treatment
