This week we see the first female elimination, the first hook up scandal, and the first back stab.
1. Giving a Hand
The cast goes to a beach party, and of course Johnny Bananas has a GoPro. On the ride home, he catches some exclusive footage of a scandalous showman: Cara Maria & Thomas! Supposedly Cara Maria is still seeing Abram (actually, she moved from Boston to Montana to be with him) and Thomas has a girlfriend at home. Either way, they’re getting awfully close, and Cara Maria must be trying to summon a genie, because she is rubbing awfully hard. Although, she just considers this politics.
2. Bugging Out
The challenge is called Family Dinner. The goal is to have one teammate chew and regurgitate as many grasshoppers and coach roaches as possible while the other has to be stuck in a box with a snake. All of the girls are freaking out, except Cara Maria who is thrilled to be with a snake. While the guys have no problems chewing bugs, the girls all struggle. In fact, Brianna doesn’t even try. That’s OK, because it’s a male elimination so all of the girls who didn’t attempt the challenge have no consequence and get to go clubbing all night. On the other hand, Cohutta and Jill are forced into elimination because Jill couldn’t eat enough bugs. On the other hand, Cara Maria and Jamie love creepy critters and win.
3. Cohutta It Out
Cara Maria is struggling to play the game, manage her politicking, and be a decent human being. So she asks Cohutta who he would like to face. He waivers between Thomas & Stephen and Dario & Raphy. Cara Maria enjoys Thomas, so she decides sending Dario & Raphy to The Pit is a good idea. She also wants to give them a heads up, so when she tells them they get pissed off and tell her that they’ll target his if they return. Then, Cohutta says his gut tells him to face Thomas & Stephen. After all of the effort, Cara Maria blindsides Thomas & Stephen and decides to send them into The Pit. Dario is relieved, Cohutta gets what he wants, Thomas feels backstabbed, and Cara Maria looks like she is playing a sloppy game.
4. Crossing the Bloodline
Brianna is homesick and bored for sitting around and doing nothing during challenges, so she says she wants to go home. She also starts insulting Jenna and the entire cast. This sparks a personal fight between Brianna and Jenna where they air a bunch of each other’s dirty laundry. After the yelling finishes, they two go to bed, wake up the next morning, and apologize.
5. Cohutta’s Last Square Dance
The Pit is called Squaring Off and it’s basically Hall Brawl with multiple hallways that form a square. Cohutta is forced in, because Jill can’t compete while Thomas volunteers for his team. In the first round, they both get to the ball first but Thomas’s size allows him to inch to his goal and drag Cohutta with him. The second round is no different, and Cohutta takes an early flight home with his cousin Jill.
