Animal party!! Did our cast really think of and then draw those awesome big cat faces on each other, or did they have some stagehands and professional makeup artists come in and do it? What does everyone think?
So this is the point in the season that your junior high literature teacher (or “reading,” depending on your school experience) calls “rising action.” We’re supposed to believe something about to happen. So things have to look like they’re heating up. And you know I grade on a curve, so A for effort, show. I’m thinking that for the parts starring Cancer Barbie and Violence Ken in the big recap, (thank you to whoever came up with Cancer Barbie. Show yourself!) I’m going to just skip them or maybe talk about something completely different.
So! Our cast frolics on the beach. The sun is out (and they only have challenges in the rain). Some girl has trust issues. Then they have an animal party. Jasmine writhes entertainingly on a table while everyone else drinks, and Robin shows up as a vampire because that’s who she is, bitches. Tyrie and Jasmine get bickery, and she asks him to say whatever he has to say to her face, so he totally bark/snarls at her to eff off, and she praises him for his progress. CT appears to have a special drunk voice that kind of makes him less hateworthy, and it looks like Di agrees with me on this. They say things to each other.
The challenge is about
sitting and spinning a big pipe that our couples have to wrap their legs and arms around and hold onto. It goes toward the finish line and toward the water, spinning faster as it goes. The challengers have to hold on as long as they can and then swim to the finish line from wherever they fall, however dizzy they are. I kind of miss Veronica for this challenge. That makes me pretty disgusted with myself. Of course this pipe is suspended over the lagoon, and the most awesome part is the part where people fall. Tyrie falls right on Jasmine. Good thing she was wearing that helmet. This challenge fosters teamwork, kissing, and butt-touching afterward within several sets of partners.
Salient spoiling points begin after the photos.
This week’s Torso of the Week goes to Ty
Or if you prefer some lady torso…
Gotta say, that’s some bra. So Tyrie falls onto Jasmine’s head, which ultimately earns them a place in The Dome. Mark and Robin miss Loserville by one second. A re-invigorated Ty and Emily face off with Johnny and Camila for the win, and Johnny and Camila take it again. They live up to Johnny’s having compared them to a tasty snack earlier in the ep. Johnny has baad bloood with Rachel from a previous challenge, so his mind is close to made up pretty early on as to who he’s gonna send to The Dome. Rachel apparently tries to backdoor Mark, or as he says, throw him in front of the bus, because he’s old and his partner might be a Twi-hard. That’s about as successful as it sounds, and heated words are exchanged during another trip to Bar Boobies. Nobody gets slapped though.
Rachel and Aneesa get Domed and the spinning X Knocks You on Your Ass makes a second appearance. And Tyrie is just not very graceful, is he? Aneesa and Tyrie go down first, and Jasmine makes a valiant effort but is eventually done in by exhaustion and short legs. Rachel remains a snank (snake + skank) though. Tyrie and Jasmine have a pretty funny exit-talking-head sequence in which he says what he thinks he’s supposed to say, and she just spews vitriol.
