RIVALS II: This Is the End…for Diem

Last night’s episode of MTV’s The Challenge:Rivals II was absolute insanity. There was no elimination last night, but we did get to see a whole lot of drama in the house, especially after the girls had their final challenge.

There are only four girl teams left…and it all came down to last night’s final challenge….every team wants to win that first spot and win their ticket to the final race. Cara and Cooke are on their own when the other 3 teams decide they want C & C voted into the jungle…of course that’s if Cara and Cooke don’t win immunity. Ha-Ha!

I’ve never been a fan of Cara…but this season that has all changed thanks to Cooke. Cooke and Cara have fought through countless jungles…they’ve sent teams home and I think they deserve to be in the final race. They’ve had a target on their backs since day one…and it’s no question as to why they are my favourites right now. Having said that, this final challenge was extremely nerve wracking, I literally couldn’t breathe until it was over. It was a good ol’ game of simon says…the girls were chained to their partner, they had to run across the scorching hot beach to a tent where a machine signalled out the colours to them. Then they had to run back to the start line and assemble the colours in the appropriate order. There were two heats…so whoever came in last in the first heat automatically was sent to the jungle.

I did not expect my girls to win this round…I mean it’s the most important race and I just assumed Emily and Paula would kill it. Right off the start Em and Paula are zooming down the beach, C and C are in second…Diem and Aneesa are following in third and Jemmye is having a hard time running alongside Camila. The teams reach the tent to memorize their signals…Cooke and Cara are the first ones to get it, they zoom off leaving Em and Paula stunned. Diem finds herself sketching out when she can’t hold on to the colours in her head, Aneesa is standing there watching her partner completely break down. By this point the other 3 teams are down the beach…Cooke and Cara complete their order coming in first. Em and Paula come in second and Jemmye and Camila are in third. Diem and Aneesa are automatically sent to the jungle. Diem’s face…I just wish I had a picture….this is exactly what she didn’t want, she never wanted to see a jungle.

In the second heat, it was Cooke and Cara against powerhouse Em and Paula. This was literally make or break, the boys were standing their watching the best entertainment of their lives. Somehow, Cara pulls through and continues her pace with Cooke. They make it to the tent a few seconds after Em and Paula, but again they’re the first ones out as Cara promises Cooke she’s got the order. For a few minutes I was like….this is where Cara f***s everything up!!

Cara and Cooke make it back to assemble the colours…by this point Em and Paula are caught up but C and C fight through and they end up winning first place!!!! When TJ blew that horn…wow I couldn’t be happier for these two girls. Everyone else was stunned…Diem was boiling with rage at the sight of Cooke celebrating. The guys were going nuts because everyone knows the house is about to be ripped apart…nobody thought Cooke and Cara would win immunity,

Back at the house….the girls are scrambling to lock down their votes. For the first time in the game, Em and Paula are legitimately facing the jungle and they are scared sh*tless. And this is why I love Jemmye and Camila. Not once did they beg the guys to not vote them in…they stayed out of it all.  Even though they could be facing the jungle…they sure as hell knew they would be coming back from it.

Paula is begging Jordan and Marlon not to vote for them, she has tears in her eyes…Jemmye walks by and turns to the boys and tells them she def can’t cry like that. Then everything blows up and Jemmye calls out Em and Paula for begging like a bunch of you know whats…somehow Diem gets involved…and then Jemmye is calling Diem an idiot…..how could she fall for CT all over again…everyone knows how he is and that he’s hooked up with everyone. The problem was…Diem wanted to go against Jem and Camila because she thinks she can beat them…however CT and Wes were saying they were going to vote in Em and Paula for whatever reasons. Diem saw this as CT playing her and not giving her what she wanted. And he really didn’t care because he can’t hold her hand forever…AND he doesn’t owe her anything. I love when he asked her why did you lose the final challenge! All you had to do was not come in last place!! Amazing.

So Diem is having a full out psycho attack…with her red wine in her hand she’s walking through the house looking for trouble. Aneesa is trying to get her to lay off and go to sleep. Diem isn’t having it, she has a thing out for Cooke I don’t know why. She starts giving Cooke the evil eye because Cooke is totally care free at this point. Anyone in Diem’s way is open for fire. Also, if Cooke and Cara lost the challenge there would be no fighting…the house is a mess because Cooke and Cara won immunity. Revenge is so sweet!

CamandJem

At the deliberations, Jordan and Marlon surprisingly vote for Jem and Camila. I have to respect Jordan’s decision as he based it on the fact Em and Paula have won almost every challenge, they deserve to see the finals…they fought hard enough. And I agree, they were the powerhouse of the game…like Cooke and Cara they proved themselves…I think it’s time for Diem and Aneesa to do the same.

So the final jungle will be Diem and Aneesa VS Jemmye and Camila.

I’ve always been Team NOLA so I hope I see Jem and Cam back in the game for the final race.

Who do you guys think will win the jungle?

RIVALS II: Bad Charades, Sucky Teammates

Last night was another crazy episode of MTV’s The Challenge Rivals II. Right off the start, Marlon’s sexuality is the topic of discussion, with Derek admitting they hooked up the first night in the pool. Derek wasn’t sure if anyone else knew Marlon was gay, so he didn’t want to tell anyone. Jordan, who was on the same season with Marlon, told the other guys, Marlon admitted to them that he was bisexual. This surprises the other guys because Marlon couldn’t be a more Alpha male type. During their charades game, Leroy passes up the opportunity to act out Marlon, because he doesn’t really know the rookie. Knight jumps up and decides to act out Marlon…only nobody finds it funny…and a fight breaks out.

Knight

 

I love Knight, but sometimes he just acts like a 5-year old and doesn’t realize his actions are hurting other people. I don’t think it’s the right way to play the game, especially when you’re depending on the girls to vote for you. The fight breaks out between Marlon and Knight, and surprisingly Preston jumps in to save the day.

Jemmye

Trishelle and Aneesa some how get into a verbal argument, Trishelle is literally a nut job and she decides to pack up her bags and leave! I actually didn’t think she would go through with it, but she walks out, doesn’t even say bye to anyone and leaves her partner alone. Sarah…who we love..but hasn’t had the best luck with partners is stuck wondering what her fate will be. TJ shows up, which is always bad news. He tells Sarah they don’t have another partner for her,  therefore she has to leave! How can this happen again!!!

SarahShe really is a great competitor, and it sucks to see her leave because of her partner’s decision, but I don’t think she would’ve made it to the end with Trishelle. Next time she’s on a show, they should have 3 back up partners for her!

Challenge day, and it is another crazy obstacle. Partners have to climb up a shaky ladder, above water, and slide themselves across two ropes. It’s shaky and hard to keep still with your partner moving along with you, if you fall into the water you have to start again.

Ct WesKnight and Preston came in last, they were the only team that couldn’t make it to the end. This time, it was actually Knight’s fault, once he fell, he couldn’t get back onto the rope in time, poor Preston was hanging there the whole damn time!

Cara and Cooke

 

No surprise, Emily and Paula came in first, Johnny B and Frank came in first for the guys. The girls ended up voting for Derek and Robb to face Knight and Preston in the elimination round.

Teams had to battle it out with sticks that they had to break on their opponents body. The only thing, they were blindfolded and had to follow the instructions of their teammate from the side line. Robb and Derek won the first round against Preston.

Knight beat Derek for the second round, tying the game  up. For the final round, it was Robb vs Knight, and Knight came out of the woodwork to win this elimination for his team!

final round

 

We lost like four people in one episode, it was cray cray. In the end, Knight apologizes to Marlon for his actions. Marlon forgives him for now…and then hooks up with Nany! Oh Yeah!
