Can we get through a whole challenge and an elimination in a single episode? Probably not…
1. Q & A-holes
The cast quickly gets to the challenge of the week, but the night prior to the challenge TJ makes an unexpected appearance and makes all the girls leave. Turns out, the cast is playing a game called Take It To the Grave, which is basically the newlywed game. The night before the game, the girl were asked a series of questions and the boys must match their answer. While the boys are answering the girls are buried in a coffin, and when a question is answered correctly the boys progress a step forward. Once they make it to the front, the boys must unbury their partner. Dario and Bananas are on fire, and make it to the front first. They answer their final question correctly, but Dario unburies Nicole the quickest so they win. On the other side, Nate knows nothing about Christina and they come in last.
2. Beating Bananas
In last week’s episode, we saw Wes and the newbies band together to get Bananas out. Now that Dario has some power, he is dying to get on Banana’s good side. He tells Bananas that he won’t vote him in and basically says that he wants to go to the final with Bananas so he can come in third. Sarah laughs at the newbies, because they have all the power, but they do not want to make a big move.
3. The Cory Story
Throughout the episode, Cory’s allegiances are questioned. He is openly getting along with Vince and Bananas, but Nany tells Nicole that Cory made an alliance with herself & Wes. Now, Dario & Nicole don’t trust him and he never seems to give them direct answers when he’s asked a question. Finally, Cory admits Bananas & Vince are his #1 and #2, and this makes Dario not trust him at all.
4. Nomination Drama
After everyone’s business is aired out, Dario (and kind of Nicole) decide to send Cory & Ashley and Devin & Cheyenne to the Jungle. This immediately pisses off Wes & Nany and Devin & Cheyenne who thought they were all on the same page. Dario says he’s allowed to make his own decisions, but everyone knows he’s making a bad decision. Now one of the rookies teams will have to go into the Jungle while Bananas and Vince skate by.
5. Jungless Jungle
The cast arrives at the Jungle and Ashley picks a skull. It’s white. Then Cheyenne picks a skull. It’s white. Cory goes to pick a skull, and we get a “to be continued.” No Jungle this episode!
