Hurry up you fat biatch! Is all we heard from Team San Diego in this week’s episode of MTV’s Battle of the Seasons. This week’s challenge was by far the hardest challenge yet. Teams had to carry pieces of logs with puzzle pieces on them up a hill, and line up all the logs to solve the puzzle. Each player could only carry one log each time, which made it near impossible for the two person teams- New Orleans and St.Thomas.
What I love about Team Brooklyn- in my opinion they’re already winners. They’ve been in the elimination round more than anyone else and have walked away undefeated. They have had the biggest target on their backs since day one, and have fought through it coming out at the top, especially in this week’s challenge. Sara is a master at puzzles and has the genius idea to put the puzzle together with the logs at the bottom of the hill, that way they don’t need to carry everything to the top and then solve it. Although they still fought hard, the strategy worked to their advantage and they won power team.
In the words of pageant Queen Devyn, whatever motivational course Team San Diego took…didn’t work and they should get their money back. The biggest challenge in this challenge is to work with your team, good chemistry will definitely get you far. San Diego has gotten far and will probably make it to the end not because of their chemistry…but because they’re at the top of their alliance, Frank basically runs the show. Coming into this, it’s a good idea to form relationships outside of the show. That way when you get into a challenge, you have friendships…and friendships form alliances. That’s where Team San Diego is…and that’s what veterans Johnny/Kenny/Evan/Dereck would do. If you follow the cast on Twitter, you can see whose friends with who…ultimately you might get screwed over because at the end of the day it is a game- but it’s always good to come into one of these surrounded by ‘friends’.
Anyways, Team San Diego proves how dysfunctional they are in this challenge, unfortunately for Sam she got the worst of it. It looked like an extremely difficult challenge, from the amount of walking and carrying they did, plus the scorching hot weather…it was no surprise that Sam needed to take a few breaks! San Diego made it to 3rd last…St.Thomas second last…and unfortunately Team NOLA came in last place. Really proud of the St.Thomas rookies. I know Marie and Robb are no longer a couple, but Robb was so adorable with his words of encouragement for his partner. But they’ll be gone by next week.
Brooklyn votes in the obvious team- San Diego. SD has put Brooklyn into eliminations several times, so it’s only fair that Brooklyn gets revenge. Starting out, I didn’t really care for Brooklyn. Over the season, they’ve proved what a strong team they are, not just as a whole but individually as well. I think Devyn really shocked everyone. Also, Frank is quite possibly the most annoying and selfish cast member ever…he’s worse than Johnny Bananas. At least Johnny was funny! So really…I wanted Team NOLA…but now I want Brooklyn in the finals with Vegas and Cancun.
We get to see Frank’s true colours this week when him and Zach decide whose going into the elimination round. Frank and Zach had made a deal before the show that anything mental- Frank would do…and anything physical…Zach would do. Brooklyn chose a Mental game for this week’s elimination. Frank volunteers himself…and by the end of the night he backs out and says Zach should go in. Zach doesn’t have a problem going in…but he’s furious with Frank because they had made a man-to-man promise…and surprise surprise Frank turns him back on his promises. Obviously. I understand Frank wants to win…in my opinion I would rather play with integrity than walk away a winner having stepped on everyone else. That’s just my opinion, and I think Zach felt the same way. If you’re going to make a promise, stick by it…if not…well then you’re done.
The elimination round looked like it came close…Knight and Jemmye did an amazing job, but in the end Sam and Zach pulled through. Zach was extremely happy…but it looked like Jonna was even happier. For once, Sam led the team, with her words of encouragement, Zach found it in his beast like body to win for their team. Frank…didn’t look too pleased. He knows now that Zach’s coming back…and he’s going to make a s*** show out of their team.
Thanks for reading! As always tune in next week for drrrrama!
