Then they take the medallions from each of the torches and burn them in some hut/pagoda looking thing. I find myself wishing this were a real life version of The Wicker Man with Scabby trapped inside the burning effigy. Why are you looking at me like that?
Time for the immunity challenge. For this one each person has a wooden cylinder that has been cut into several pieces. The goal is to balance a ball on their wood using handles to hold the wood in place. They start with small wood and gradually increase the wood size in five minute increments. If at any point their ball falls from their wood, they are out. Except Malcolm. His advantage is that he gets a do over. The first time he’s out doesn’t count and he’ll get to reset. After that, he’s on his own.
Okay, I’ve already been clear about how I feel about the whole advantage thing, but can I say something about this last challenge? Yes, it’s hard and all, but it could end up being over fairly quickly. You know what I really miss? The final challenges that were all about endurance and who wanted it more. The ones where they had to just keep their hand on a rock or something as long as they could. Remember the wheeling and dealing that used to go on during those? Ah, memories.
They all make it through the first round, so it’s time to add more wood. During this round, Malcolm tries to make an adjustment and ends up dropping the ball. So less than ten minutes into the challenge and he’s already on his second chance. Not only is he on his second chance, but NOW his hands are shaking like a drunk going through his first day of DTs. What the fuck is happening? I’d say he has a vibrator up his sleeve if he was wearing sleeves!
Unsurprisingly, he drops out shortly after.
Oh man. I really want him in the finals and it is not looking good for him now. We’ve now got thirty seconds left in the second round….Denise drops her ball. So it’s all down to Skupin and Lisa. It doesn’t really matter which one of them wins since they’re both keeping each other, but it’s clear that they’d both like to win this one.
They make it through the rest of the second round and although Lisa looks like she’s going to lose it in the third round, she’s able to hang in there. In the fourth round both Skupin and Lisa are starting to shake and move a little. In the end…..
Back at camp Skupin is super proud of himself and Malcolm is nervous about his fate resting in Lisa and Skupin’s hands. Skupin is now ready to strategerize about which person to take to the finals. Obviously Malcolm wants it to be him and he talks to Lisa and Skupin to make sure they’re still all good for their final three deal.
