Hola, Gasmii! I hope you have all recovered from Thanksgiving and/or Black Friday. You know what was weird this year? I made it all the way past Thanksgiving without hearing a Christmas song, seeing holiday commercials, or just generally being overexposed to Christmas. Even now, I had to actually start seeking the holiday stuff out. I can’t remember the last time I didn’t feel overwhelmed by mid-November. Did that happen to everyone, or was it just me? Is this another, weirder side effect of Sandy? How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop? The world may never know.
So, anyway, previously: Brooklyn ate a whole bunch of crap to become the power team for the second time in a row. San Diego continued to fight like a bunch of little bitches. CJ went home after treating us to one of the best elimination rounds since Johnny Backpack, and Jasmine had to go with him because she is a tiny person who can only physically overcome inanimate objects. And even the potted plants can put up a serious fight against her.
Currently: San Diego is having a self-imposed team building seminar. Yes, I’m serious. It includes both working out together and saying one positive and one negative thing about each teammate. What does Zach like about Frank? Apparently he always has “good motives” and never tries to “intentionally piss anyone off.” Even Frank looks confused to hear this.
Zach lists their animosity toward each other as his negative about Frank, as if that is a character trait. Sam lists Ashley’s positivity as both a positive and a negative. Well, SOMEONE on the team needs to not want to murder a teammate and be tolerable enough for the other teammates to not want to murder her. Not that Sam really starts anything, but she’s been dragged into it by the assholes at this point. Frank thinks knowing their strengths and weaknesses is the best thing they can do.
Clue time! Everyone lamely pretends to wake up. We pretty much cut straight to Challenge Time! It’s called Abandon Ship. Basically, team members have to take turns jumping off of a boat and diving underwater to detach a buoy from a rope underwater. There are 3 buoys- 25 feet, 20 feet, and 15 feet underwater, as well as a life raft that is only 5 feet deep. They have to take turns (1 each for the 4 person teams, 2 each for the 2 person teams) releasing the buoys and then the boat. Then the boat inflates itself and they have to paddle to shore.
Vegas claims to all be “water people,” so they think this will go well for them.
