A nice, slow episode.
1. New Beginnings
Realizing the only way to return is by working with your partner, CT apologizes to Veronica. He says his tough love isn’t the best approach and offers to work with her rather than against her. He says he’ll be more encouraging and suggests she leads a work out. While this is a step in the right direction, odds are they’ll never even get the chance to compete to return.
2. Burnt Out
Once again, the secret votes are burn-central. Only Zach & Amanda have the comfort of voting for a team they actually want to see in elimination. However, they both have too many allies to make a power move. Zach has Bananas and Kyle while Amanda has her Lavender Ladies, or “Lavender Whores” as Zach calls them. Still, there’s a rookie team who they can easily target.
3. Armageddon Conundrum
Due to all the burn votes, there’s a three-way tie. Joss & Sylvia, Kam & Kayleigh, and Jozea & Da’Vonne all have two votes. The power team gets to break the tie, and they send in Jozea & Da’Vonne because that’s who they voted for anyway. Now, Jozea & Da’Vonne have no one who they can choose to compete against because Zach & Amanda are immune. TJ, the dirtiest player in the game, lets them pick anyone they want. Before Da’Vonne has the chance to suggest Shane & Nelson, Jozea picks Kam & Kayleigh and the stage is set.
The elimination is named Think Tanks and teams are hooked up to a pulley system where one player climbs a ladder to submerge the other in water. While underwater, the player must memorize a puzzle and covey it to the climber who will recreate the puzzle. The problem: it’s really, really cold. Jozea & Da’Vonne are the first to think they’ve completed the puzzle, but it’s incorrect. Then, Kam & Kayleigh think they’ve complete the puzzle, but they’re incorrect. This goes on and on until TJ gives a four minute warning. Kayleigh and Da’Vonne are dangerously cold after being in the water for 45 minutes and no one solves the puzzle. So, TJ decides that the most correct pieces wins. This makes Kam & Kayleigh the winners and Jozea & Da’Vonne are just cold and sad.
5. Returned and Crossed
Jozea & Da’Vonne return to Redemptions where they are immediately greeted by Tori and an argument. Tori blames Jozea & Da’Vonne’s wishy-washy methods for her elimination. This doesn’t really matter, because TJ brings in the double cross the next day. One team gets the double cross and goes into the Redemption challenge with a team of their choice. The other three teams go straight home. After four teams pull crosses, no one gets the double cross. This leave Jozea & Da’Vonne with the double cross. Who will they pick? CLIFFHANGER……….
