Well, we all knew this episode would feature plenty of drama since there was an After Show scheduled. They don’t put those on the teevee for just any old episode!
Previously: Sarah and Alton struck up a flirtation despite being on opposite sides of the game. Such star-crossed lovers they are, a true modern day Romeo and Juliet. Vegas won the challenge, and after much fighting disguised as deliberation, sent Brooklyn into the ARENA to face those losers Fresh Meat. They managed to piss off New Orleans in the process, before Sarah and Chet sent Cara Maria and poor, poor Brandon packing.
The cast is enjoying a lovely beach party as they tell us how wonderful it is to get away from the rigors of trying to win enough money to last them until the next Challenge.
As well as, of course, the stress of negotiating a warm bedfellow for the next few weeks and/or until the end of days.
Devyn is surprised at the romance brewing between herself and Big Easy, since she’s used to dating people who are collecting their social security checks. That’s not a joke, that’s literally what she said. Trishelle assures Devyn that Big E is for real.
Not everyone is taking a break from the game, as Trishelle reassures Knight that she doesn’t view his team as a threat because, well, look at them. Knight is still suspicious, though, and when Trishelle makes a comment about Nany’s lack of stability, he files that away in that thing he calls a brain for later. She tells us it’s a constant job to keep Team Vegas under control. I hope she doesn’t give away classified information this easily in her alleged “real” job as a professional poker player.
Clue time! It’s about shedding excess weight. Zach calls out a half-hearted comment about lifting something. Hey, he’s kind of right! (Oh, spoiler alert or something.) Frank reminds us that San Diego, Cancun, and New Orleans are aligned, and they think Vegas is still with them.
And now, Nany’s laundry has gone missing! Wait, these fuckers don’t even do their own laundry? Figures. As the entire house searches for the missing garments, Knight wanders upstairs to Jemmye and Preston and asks who put Nany’s clothes in the pool? Jemmye is rolling her eyes before he’s even finished speaking, asking why he would do that. Knight informs us that laundry is not done well in Turkey, so he thought he’d help get Nany’s clothes a little cleaner.
A tiny batch of clothes shrink-wrapped in plastic? Tonya is rolling her eyes so hard the room almost stopped spinning.
Jemmye is immediately frustrated. She’ll handle the clothes-pranking here, so don’t cheat on her unless you want all of your clothes sold to Goodwill. She heads over to tell Nany where her laundry is, because apparently NONE of the 9304 people who were looking for it managed to find it. I know the pool wasn’t their first thought of where to look, but still, no one spotted it accidentally?
