Battle of the Exes 2

Battle of the Exes 2: Top Moments from Episode 10

Picking up with right in the middle of Hurricane Nia:

1. The Wrath of Nia

After being selected to compete against Wes & Theresa in The Dome, Nia goes on a tirade and calls out everyone in the house for: being a “scrub”, conspiring to keep “scrubs” in the game, or being generally slutty. Nany gets a particularly tough lashing from Nia, and starts yelling back. The girls prepare to fight, but they boys hold them back. After deliberation, Nia hasn’t completely settled down and goes out of her way to insult Bananas.

2. The Real Brawl

Continuing with the theme of reusing eliminations, we see Hall Brawl from Battle of the Seasons, though it’s slightly modified. This time it’s played relay style with boys going before girls, so the male who rings the bell first gives his partner a head start. When Wes competes against Leory, he gets really low. In fact, he crouches in the fetal position allowing Leroy to jump over him and ring the bell first. Nia gets a head start and beats Theresa in the first heat. Wes crouching caused him to hurt his neck and he then experiences back pain. He almost gives up, but doesn’t want to disappoint Theresa. In the second attempt, Wes repeats the same strategy only slower and causes his team to lose.

3. Insincerely Sorry

Nia goes around the house apologizing for her angry response. Her blatantly fake apology land on Sarah’s ears first, and Sarah responds with some sincere advice. She then apologizes to Nany who seems to accept because they’re both crazy. She then apologizes to Jordan, who goes with the motions but has received this apology from Nia before and knows it’s fake.

4. Hanging By a Thread

This week’s challenge took place at night and was titled Don’t Let Me Down. In the challenge, teams had to descend down five ropes at the same pace. If a competitor fell, the other competitors could continue, but the best performance is assessed by which team accomplished the most together. Jay & Jenna and Leroy & Nia go first. Nia falls at the second rope while Leroy completes all five. Jay & Jenna both fall at the third rope. Then Sarah & Jordan go alongside Bananas & Nany. Bananas falls at the third rope while waiting for Nany, who takes her sweet time but also falls at the third rope. Sarah & Jordan both make it to the third rope much faster than Bananas & Nany, but fall there. There speed allows them to become the final Power Couple, while Leroy & Nany are sent directly to The Dome because Nia fell at the second rope.

5. Knives In Backs

Sarah & Jordan must immediately pick the final team to go into The Domes. Sarah whispers to Jordan, who seems to immediately disagree with him. However, Sarah then takes the mic and says that she always plays the nice girl who gets screwed in the end. She’s sick of it, and wants Banana & Nany to compete against Leroy & Nia. Bananas is dumbfounded and shocked, but Sarah seems firm in her decision.

  1. TJ mentioning that this was the first nighttime challenge is completely false… I remember there being an aquarium-type challenge on one of the Battle of the Sexes, when one of the judges called Antoine out for his “nice boner”.

  2. Whether you hate him or not, going low was the only option for Wes. There was no chance of him going through Leroy.

    The fact that both Johnny and Nany (Jordan as well just not as exaggerated) were laughing at what could have been a serious injury, and claiming that it was fake was pretty disgusting to watch. They would still be laughing if he broke his neck. That will be my lasting memory of those two. That moment overshadows any of their challenge wins.

    1. I agree 100%. I never really had a problem with Johnny (BTW I think it’s ridiculous how he doesn’t even go by “Johnny” anymore but by “Bananas”), but the more seasons he is a part of, the less I like him. I always liked Nany, but the way she has been portrayed this season as Johnny’s partner has really made me grow to dislike her.

      As for Wes, he has always been who he is. He doesn’t seem to put an act on for the show- he is just consistently an over-confident guy who talks too much. Can’t hate on that lol

      1. I would guess he goes by “Bananas” so as not to confuse him with other Johnny’s – named Johnny Reilly.
