Chet makes a joke about whoring Sarah out, and it hurts her feelings.
Seriously, the girl who was best friends with Kenny, and THAT hurts her feelings?
Trishelle sits Devyn down to discuss Sarah’s alleged manipulation of Alton. Devyn is hilariously perplexed, wondering if Sarah doesn’t know how to give a proper BJ. She informs the team about what Trishelle said, and Sarah thinks everyone just wants to get rid of her because they’re afraid of her.
Alton is continuing on his “Preston and McKenzie are weak” argument, and now even Dustin is trying to calm him down. So Alton heads off in a snit while the girls try to explain to Dustin that going against the alliance now will get them thrown in at the next opportunity. Dustin’s poor choice of words in explanation is that he’s “being tugged in so many different directions.” Don’t say those things around the other guys, dude.
Teej gathers everyone for the announcement, and they try to create suspense with a commercial break and Frank telling us that Vegas is the wildcard in their alliance so he’s not sure if they’ll vote the way he wants, but it’s usually a dead giveaway simply by which “representative” from the winning team is making the announcement. And who has Vegas sent as a representative?
So, take a wild guess who they’re sending in.
Brooklyn, obviously. Oddly, no one threw out Saint Thomas’ name as a way to chicken out, so give them credit for that, I guess. Now I’m rooting for Saint Thomas to win one just so we can wonder for more than 30 seconds who will be sent in. But anyway, Sarah can’t believe that just hours ago she thought they might get Power Team, and now they’ll be duking it out in the ARENA (Strategy Version). Alton is pissed that he was outvoted and that his team is too chickenshit to piss off the alliance.
Sarah confronts Trishelle about her accusations of manipulation. Trishelle thinks that Sarah is using Alton’s emotions to get to him, since Alton is clearly filled to the brim with emotions. Sarah is, as always, utterly flabbergasted at the notion that someone would question her motivations on a Challenge, where honesty always thrives. Trishelle reminds us that she’s a poker player, so she reads bluffs for a living, but Sarah thinks Trishelle doesn’t know her own teammate very well.
Alton compliments Sarah’s cute toes and says she’s like him, only a white girl. Or he’s like her, only “a bald, black guy, who’s much older.”
“I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.” Alton is the walrus, you guys.
Alton tells us that Sarah completes him or something, then apologizes to Sarah for her team getting thrown in. But come on, now. This is Sarah. She ain’t scared of no puzzle. She promises to come back with even more motivation and win the whole thing.
