This week’s challenge sends the competitors underwater. In Air Pockets they have to swim 150 feet, and once they go under they have to stay under. To breathe, they have six boxes with a limited air supply. The red team starts, and only Abe and Bananas even get to the first box, but both are able to finish. The blue team goes next, and Mike leads the pact with confidence, Jamie follows suit and they’re off to a strong start. In fact, only Aneesa does not get to at least the first box. However, Mitch and Jenna freak out and decided to return to the surface. Then Vince gets bored of competing, so he returns to the surface. Mike and Jamie finish the challenge, but with all the fuckery of their teammates they are slower than Bananas and Abe. So, the blue team loses again and will never win. Next week, bloodlines will be reunited as pairs.

After getting thrown in last week, Jenna and Brianna are mad at Bananas and Vince. They consider throwing Vince in, and Cara Maria is enthusiastic about the idea. Then Bananas works his charm. He promises Jenna safety and she starts to think she may need an ally. While people have been cordial to her, she has no true allies.

3. Blue Team Blues

Mike volunteers again, but this time he encourages Mitch or Vince to volunteer instead of him because they have been sucking. Neither step up, and Vince insists that he has nothing to prove, so Mike goes in, Then, the red team votes. Though half of the team was once ready to send in Vince they decide to flip sides send in Jamie. So Mike is competing against Jamie… and in a sense Abe is against Cara Maria.

4. Old School Twist

Mike and Jamie are ready to face each other in The Pit, but TJ announces another surprise… they won’t compete against each other. Instead, they need to compete against two of the biggest veterans: CT and Zach. Of course, only one person competes against Zach and one against CT. Based on a coin flip, Zach competes with Mike and CT with Jamie.

5. Pulling Out

The elimination requires the competitors to pull out poles at varying heights, the person with the most out of 3 wins If neither bloodline gets a pole, the competitor who lasts the longest wins. CT and Jamie go first, and it becomes clear he is not going to defeat CT. So he just hangs on for as long as he can. Then Mike competes against Zach, and he resorts to just hanging as well. However, a few bad grips result in Zach making big progress. So, Zach gets rid of Mike pretty quick and Mike and Abe get out of the competition.



  1. Who do you think had a better chance of making it to the end? Abram/bro or Cara/cousin? Abram has a good physical chance…but they volunteering like idiots to go in.

    1. I think they mentioned in the reunion that mike threw the challenge, because he would never send home cara. after what she did, I would have sent her home. but mike works with his body, I think in the construction field, with abe. so I think he could have lasted longer than jaimie, if he wanted to. of course abe/mike would be a better team, that cara & anybody.
