Marie spends the bus ride home yelling at everyone. She tells us they’re all corny (the ultimate Marie insult), and now she might never like them. I’m sure they’ve all lost a ton of sleep over that. Someone calls Marie corny, which sets her off all over again. Zach says he’ll kill Robb, and somehow it ends with Marie threatening Sam AGAIN. Sam give a great WTF reaction.
For some reason, people are telling Robb to control her since she’s his girlfriend, as if that is either possible or appropriate. Robb tells her she made her point, in a rather amusing tone.
Back at the house, Marie yells at Sam some more, who can’t be bothered. So when Chet tells Marie to calm down, she gets confused and for some reason starts repeatedly calling JD a dolphin trainer, which is clearly meant as an insult in some way. (If she’s implying something with that comment, clearly it couldn’t be shown on TV.) She then moves on to Derek, who awesomely looks at her expectantly while she tries to come up with an insult. He tells her they didn’t have a problem until tonight, and she’ll be going home tomorrow. He then reminds her that she was crying earlier in the night because she’s afraid of going in. It’s pretty great.
Derek: Telling it like it is since… 30 seconds ago.
Robb hilariously accuses him of “riding Jonna’s coattails,” as if Jonna could carry anything bigger than Jasmine. Ok, clearly he means Jonna banging Zach to save their asses every time SD wins Power Team, but it’s still a hilarious accusation. Derek reminds Saint Thomas that they haven’t won any challenges, although it’s not like Cancun has been doing all that hot lately. Then they repeat the same arguments a few more times.
Somehow, now even ROBB is making Frank look calm and rational as he holds the giant ginger back. Frank reminds them that he is the one responsible for their trip to the ARENA, not Derek, but they’re not listening. Chet tells us this is pathetic and is showing that Robb and Marie are unstable as both competitors and as human beings.
The next morning, Trishelle and Dustin seem to be getting along pretty well as they prepare for the ARENA, and Trishelle awkwardly flirts with Chet. He gives a pretty excellent explanation for the situation when he describes Trishelle as “a recently divorced mom who’s trying to party with her daughters.” She tells us Chet is adorable, and there’s nothing wrong with some innocent, flirtatious fun.
This attraction kind of makes sense, since Chet is dressed like early-90′s Zach Morris, back when Trishelle was a teenager.
ARENA time. Trishelle and Dustin vs. Marie and Robb in Water Torture. They guys hang upside down over a tank of water and have to pull themselves down into the water and back up to raise the girls up and down to solve a memory puzzle.
