The truth comes out this week… well, kind of.
1. Crazy In Love
In an attempt to shatter all of Cara Maria’s alliances, Bananas and Vince decide to let Abe know that Cara Maria is being awfully friendly with Thomas. Abe then sits down and confronts Cara Maria, Thomas, and their bloodlines. Cara Maria says that after voting in Thomas and Stephen, she felt bad and wanted to build back their trust, so she was really friendly. Abe is somewhat understanding, and thinks Bananas and Vince were just trying to cause waves. However, Cara Maria later confesses to “making Thomas sandwiches” and “giving back massages.” This disappoints Abe, and he loses all respect for Thomas and asks Cara Maria to vote Thomas into The Pit.
2. Bus Bullies
On the way to the next challenge, Abe decides to get to the front of the bus and confront the entire cast. Basically, he states that Thomas and Stephen are not allies with Cara Maria and will stab her in the back. Stephen claims they made no promises, and Cara Maria starts to get defensive by stating that Abe wanted to take out Bananas because he stood in the way of her winning. Bananas and Abe chuckle about their mutual hatred, but are now setting out to make Thomas public enemy #1.
3. Hand Under Hand
This week’s challenge is called Hand Me Down and the goal is to traverse a series of ropes dangling 44 stories in the air. The blue team gets off to a rough start when Aneesa refuses to compete. Thomas then fails to make it across for the red team. However, the red team then have a series of success when Abe, Cory, Anthony, Bananas and Cara Maria make it across. Only Kellyanne and Stephen make it across on the blue team, and then they get to the point where they cannot win. So, the red team wins again.
4. Votes and Volunteering
Mike decides he wants to do something for a change, so he nominates himself to go into The Pit. On the red team, they decided to vote. Abe get his wish when Cara Maria votes Stephen into The Pit. Thomas tries to return the favor by voting in Jamie, but this just seals his fate. Stephen is going to face Mike.
5. Getting Wrecked
This Pit has a fitting name for the situation as it is called Home Wrecker. The goal is to smash all of the furniture in a room and dispose of it through a tiny hole in the wall. Mike, who builds houses, is comfortable smashing everything. On the other hand, Stephen has “noodly arms” according to Jenna, and can’t swing a sledgehammer properly. So, Mike easily wins and sends home Thomas and Stephen. Then, as Abe returns home to celebrate, the camera turns to Cara Maria confessing to Jamie that she’s ready to leave Abe…
