Wait, I missed a spot theah…
So our Real Worlders and Road Rulers (and IIRC, some new meaty morsels brought in just to fight them) had the Gulag, the Gauntlet, and the Duel, but sadly, not the Guillotine. How to top those? Hell hath no fury like that castmate you hooked up with before you hooked up with that other one… hence, Battle of the Exes.
Tonight we meet our 13 sets of unlucky former lovers, and they settle into their beachside Dominican manse. Highlighted couples include rookies Heather and Dustin, one of whom was a porn star; Nate and Priscilla, also rookies, who have their big pants on and their trash-talking down; Wes and Mandi, veterans, one of whom is an obnoxious prig who can’t wait to fling shit; and CT and Diem, vets, who apparently once had “that Notebook kind of love,” but now mainly frustrate each other. Also Robin and Mark, since she’s finally rightsized her boobs and he’s got a helluva body for a 40-something. Just ask him.
The couples are teamed up for the duration, and each challenge will require some type of synchronicity. Big people will fall down and screaming will ensue. Each week, the winners of the challenge will become the Power Couple, and they alone will get to choose another couple to
get Domed go to The Dome with the challenge losers, where they will do a duelish activity. The losers of the Dome duel will go home in disgrace, and blame will be liberally distributed.
The first main challenge involves the couples running across a beam over the water, rolling around in a tub full of honey to get maximum coverage, and then having their partner sort of scrape/scoop the honey off of them into a bucket. The beams get more slippery as the challenge goes on, and one hapless mofo falls into the water five times, squashing his balls at least once in the process. The couples who do best are those who (a) are best at rubbing each other and (b) have some good crevices to store the honey in. Six packs and belly buttons get the most play, while cleavage sort of gets the shaft. Damn censors.
