The cast has landed, but unlike other seasons there is a staggered arrival. Bananas, of course, get there first. The his friend Camila, Johnny, and Nany follow. Then some are you the one kids, and eventually they all get there. We also get some updates from our favorite people. For example, Johnny lives in his mother’s basement, Nicole got promoted to bartender at the strip club, and Leroy is a bartender at the Britney Spears show in Vegas. Then, Bananas gave his typical toast and drinks started flowing.

2. You Are One?

Simone takes her head out of her ass for a second and realizes all the Are You the One? kids can band together and have a little power since there are so many. However, this is short lived once Brandon says he’ll never work with Christina after they broke up. All of the veterans watched as the AYTO kids aired their shit for everyone to see.

3. The Cast Has Landed

Even though the cast has landed, they don’t know the theme yet. So, they are told to jump from a plane. When they land on the beach they see a sign reading “Rivals III” on the beach. Most people are pissed, except for Nate. He is too scared to jump, doesn’t jump, and gets called a pussy by Thomas.

4. Pairs From Hell

TJ announces the theme, and the biggest prize EVER. The winning team splits $275,000! As the pairs are matched, some people struggle to recall their beef. Others are upset, namely Camila who seems to hate Tony even though they barely have beef. TJ saves the best for last, when he announces Bananas will be paired with Sarah. Bananas laughs and makes light of the situation, but we all can see he’s pissed.

5. Don’t Lie on Me!

Unlike Battle of the Bloodlines, Tony isn’t fighting the whole cast on the first night. However, you can only control Tony so much. He is talking about all the girls who want to sleep with him, and claims Simone is on the top of the list. Simone, who is just lurking in the bushes for no apparent reason, calls out Tony for lying. Tony just shakes it off, but Simone keeps going. She even confesses she’s sleep with Cory if she wasn’t in a committed relationship.

6. Shower Power

As the cast gets to know each other, Ashley sets her sights on Jamie. Amid the Tony and Simone fight, Ashley is bored and signals for Jamie to head to the bathroom. The two strip down, and Ashley proceeds to give Jamie an old-fashioned blowie. As this happens, Leroy finds a window and the whole cast catches of glimpse of the act.

7. Lean On Me

The first challenge is called Cut Me Some Slack where the female teammate must lean out to grab a skull while the male partner supports her by holding  rope, increasing slack as needed. The five skulls are increasingly far away, and the teammates who gets the most skulls the fastest wins. Jessica and Johny go first, but fail to communicate and Jessica falls after getting only two skulls. While Kellyanne almost got the final skull, it was only Jenny who was able to get it with the support of Vince. This makes Jenna and Vince the first winners. Who will they send into the Jungle? We’ll find out next time!


  1. It was a very good episode because it did not seemed rushed which might be bad because they might try to rush 2 eliminations next episode. I liked the way they introduced everyone in the beginning also but the order should of been champions first, runner ups, vets, rooks, and ayto coming into the house last.

  2. 90 minutes & no elimination! I was like let’s get it on already!

    No mention of Bananas dropping Sarah? That was so choice! I really hate bananas, but he makes some good tv!

  3. Great episode, guess Ep, 2 will just have the elimination at the end and the skull twist shown in the supertease and fantasy league. Tony & Camila killed it! Bananas being a crybaby and over the top annoying as always was the worst part of the episode…

    1. He needs to grow up and realize he has the best female this season in terms of brains and strength.
