Jemmye yells at Knight for not manning up, in a thinly-veiled way that shows she is still angry and yelling at him for what he did to her. The other girls are thoroughly enjoying it and take turns calling Knight an asshole. He tells us it’s just a game, might as well try to mentally break some people. Dude, when you’re taking all the blame as the girls all band together, you’re doing it wrong. JEK would have had those bitches clawing each other’s eyes out over this, somehow. But it is nice to see the girls have each other’s backs, for once.
Knight counters this attack by grabbing the rest of her suitcase and bringing it downstairs, which no one stops him from doing. Something tells me this was edited out of order or something, and they all yelled at him after he did the second part. Although he still can’t fully commit, as only a few things land in the pool and the rest end up on dry land.
Like McKayla Maroney, Tonya is not impressed.
Big Easy starts fishing the clothes out with a surface skimmer, while Dustin has changed into a bathing suit and swim cap for the occasion. He proceeds to dive dorkily into the pool as everyone makes a game out of retrieving Nany’s clothes. Or, as Dustin puts it, they “turn lemons into watermelons,” so he is probably either confused or a secret magician. (I almost said “closet magician, but caught myself… although then I told y’all anyway, so… oops.)
Upstairs, Knight is proud of himself until Boss Man Frank informs him that everyone is banding together to help Nany, putting a target on the giant alliance’s back. Nany informs us that she refuses to let any of them get the best of her. Famous last words.
Wait, are they in Turkey or in Washington, DC?
Speaking of DC, anyone remember that season? No? Neither do I, and I recapped the friggen thing. That was exhausting. Thankfully, they are one of the few recent seasons not represented here. Bullet dodged.
Challenge time! It’s called Don’t Weigh Me Down.
Not weighing each other down is a task that will be impossible for most of these teams.
Anyway, one guy and one girl from each team (except for Fresh Meat, who will be represented by Big Easy) will stand on the platforms, holding up those crates, while the remaining members from each team run back and forth to a large rock pile, carrying one rock at a time and placing it in the crate of their choice. The first team to drop their crate is ARENA bound, the last team to drop will be the Power Team. Needless to say, the alliance will factor heavily into this one.
Trey doesn’t want to put rocks into Brooklyn’s basket because they’re his friends, so he ends up holding the basket for his team in order to prevent him from messing things up too badly for them. `
