Everyone gets their first two buoys without incident, except for our poor Ginger Robb. He’s stressing out and struggling like crazy, but Marie can’t jump into the water until he pulls off a buoy, so she tells him to go for one of the shallower ones. Trishelle apparently manages to “swallow a bunch of water” and then also starts to panic.
Meanwhile, Cancun is the first team to get their life raft inflated, but are having a hard time paddling. San Diego and Brooklyn also get their rafts inflated and start paddling, while Vegas is continuing to stress the hell out because Trishelle hasn’t gotten her 15 foot buoy, and poor Nany is stuck helpless on the boat trying to figure out what the problem is. Alton is pissed that Trishelle can’t manage to get a buoy that is “literally at her feet.”
Trishelle is out of breath and struggling more and more after each unsuccessful attempt to get the buoy. She is also frustrated because Dustin and Alton are not asking her if she’s okay, they’re just “commanding” her to go under the water. Alton finally decides to get the buoy himself and take the five minute penalty that will result. Robb has finally just gotten the 15 foot buoy, so Marie can jump in and attempt the 25 foot one.
Nany is finally able to jump in and get Team Vegas’ boat, while Marie gets the 20 and 25 foot buoys, and Saint Thomas is on their way in last place. Marie tells us that she and Robb are extremely competitive people, and she thinks he’s beating himself up about not being able to get the buoy. She admits that it probably doesn’t help that she’s beating him up as well.
Dustin and Alton are paddling to shore while also complaining about Trishelle’s poor performance. Who said men couldn’t multi-task? San Diego, on the other hand, is getting along great as they make it to shore and drag their boat across the finish line for the win. Ashley is happy to avoid the ARENA, despite never having been there. Although I’m sure listening to Frank and Zach fight about the ARENA is far worse than actually going in.
Robb and Marie are a mess, both physically and mentally. Brooklyn and Cancun, on the other hand, are happy to come in second and third place respectively. Vegas angrily drags their boat for a fourth place finish, and apparently they already know they’ll be ARENA bound. So I guess the alliance/get rid of Brooklyn plan is over. Remember when that was a huge fucking deal? I guess Brooklyn has succeeded in getting people to like them.
