The girls’ heat begins, and Jonna is knocked out quickly, much to Zach’s dismay. I guess he should have had his female teammates protect his female companion. Trishelle isn’t far behind, but Dustin is happy with her effort. Sam and Ashley put up a good fight, but are the next out. And then there’s only so much Marie can do before Sarah and Devyn knock her out too.
Time for the guys’ heat, and Zach is out for blood, apparently. The heat begins, and sure enough the Brooklyn guys fall down three times and are disqualified. The Brooklyn girls instantly blame it on JD. Everyone gangs up on Dustin next, and he’s knocked off. Frank tells us that he and Zach are “giggling” and “like two sisters on a beach vacation” in their tube, since it’s all so tra-la-la-la-la easy for them.
The Zach that we saw during his season would never have done something this gay. God, what a homo, amiright?
They force Robb out next, at which point Derek isn’t much match for the San Diego brick wall (I wonder what might have happened if CJ was still there?). Needless to say, Zach and his scarf are thrilled.
You can’t see it, but the scarf is actually a “Don’t Tread On Me” flag.
Brooklyn bitchily bickers. Alliteration FTW! Teej gathers everyone for the winner’s announcements. Vegas lost, but they handle it well. San Diego wins, in case they weren’t cocky enough. Saint Thomas apparently managed second place. Sam is thrilled that they’re still a four person team so close to the final. Especially since she could easily justify Ashley having to go in should they be ARENA bound anytime between now and then.
During elimination deliberation, Zach starts off by saying he wants to throw in Saint Thomas because Marie pushed Sam. I love that Zach and Sam appear to have carried their friendship over after their season. Sam tells us that Marie did apologize, but she’s certainly not going out of her way to save Marie. Fair enough. That Sam, always with the calm logic. Frank says Marie and Robb are his best friends there, and he would feel awful for throwing them in, just like Zach would feel awful if he had to throw in Cancun. Yes, Frank, but last I checked neither member of Saint Thomas was banging you.
Plus, with Marie around, he’s only the most obnoxious person in the house by a mid-sized margin instead of a football-field sized one.
Ashley pipes up (she speaks!) to say that she thought the point was to take out Vegas. Frank says Brooklyn is the team to do that (plus, wouldn’t you want to go up against Robb’s smoker’s lungs in a final?) so they decide to hear arguments from Brooklyn and Saint Thomas before they decide. Sarah tells us that she hates when San Diego is the power team because she’s resigned to going in, although she and Chet hope that Devyn and JD remember it’s their turn in the ARENA.
