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: The Couples Quiz

Still recovering from last week’s bizarre elimination round, the roomies have all banded together in their quest to bring down Theresa. When did this girl become Pucket’s most hated?

rivalsII

By innocently throwing away her vote for LeRoy, Theresa allowed Diem to effortlessly stir the pot, and when Diem’s final vote sent Leroy into eliminations, Theresa decides she can no longer trust ANYONE in the house. Girl, this isn’t a game of friendship, people are ready to attack and the fact that she was so surprised by Diem’s move, proves how little she knows about the challenge.

Moving on!…It’s a girl elimination week, which means the drama meters were boiling, especially because we’re halfway to the final challenge. TJ has a sneaky deaky challenge lined up, one that tests how well the rival teams know each other. One team member is tied up to a rope, suspended over the water ( as usual) and the other teammate has to answer questions, with the same answers their partner gave. Emily and Paula obviously killed the game like they always do, winning first place and winning immunity from eliminations.

Jemmye and Camilla were the first team to go down, so they automatically get sent to eliminations.  This game also added fire to the flame, as some questions asked team members who they thought was the fakest in the house? Or who needed the most attention in the house? The worst part was, if you answered wrong, you would’ve proven to the entire house what you thought of that person, then TJ named who your partner really chose …so now two people hate you in the house! It happened to Jemmye and Jonna, TJ asks Nany who Jonna thinks is fake in the house…and Jonna ends up saying  Jemmye. It was a big surprise for Jemmye, while she’s sitting on the side line, she flashes that ghetto girl grin like s**** about to go down NOLA style!

The guys have a laugh out of it, TJ asks CT which girl in the house is the trashiest…CT opts to not say anyone’s name and basically sends Wes into the waters. It was a very smart move on CT’s part.

Right away, Theresa is putting in work trying to get the rookie guys on her side. She asks them to vote in Diem and Aneesa, Jordan tells her that he has her back and they’re all good. After that, Jordan and Marlon are discussing their decision, when Johnny B overhears and decides to give them some words of advice. Obviously, the smartest choice would be to vote Theresa in because nobody wants her there. When TJ arrives, Jordan admits he promised Theresa one thing, but he’s going back on his word and voting for her anyways. Whatt’ya gonna do Theresa! This one’s for the books. Jasmine stands up before her name is even called…all like she’s ready for the battle, nothing can stop her, she always has the funniest walk when she knows she’s going into eliminations. TJ is quick to notice it and even asks her why she takes on a different attitude when she knows she could be going home. It’s so funny.

This elimination looked like fun, the two teams had to run on treadmills while throwing a ball across to their teammate, and then they had to dump the ball into a bin.  Looks easy but when you’re running your ass off..it becomes tricky. Oh and there’s a big muddy hole in the ground so if you fly off the treadmill…it’ll break the fall.

They seem to edit the eliminations the same, at first they make you think one team has it in the bag and then magically the other team wins. Jasmine and Theresa started off good, but when Jasmine takes a tumble…the momentum stops. Jemmye and Camilla end up winning…which is a good thing because we are all Team NOLA. But jasmine, you will be missed.

In the end, Jordan admits whatever feelings he has for Jonna are irrelevant because he’s trying to the win the big money. On the other side of the house, Nany is talking about Jonna and how she always needs a guy’s attention in her life, which sounds about right. Nany admits the reason her and Jonna are rivals are because of Jonna’s ex…Zach. There is a whole lot of drama behind these partners that the show doesn’t even show!

RIVALS 2: 69?

rivalsIIWith the new season of MTV’s The Challenge:Rivals 2, the teams of two are sure to be subjected to some crazy ass challenges. Last night proving to be one of them…titled ’69’ by a few cast mates on Twitter. It started off with a little hip action sawing, working together to cut a piece of wood. Then, partners had to literally carry their other half upside down (69 style) through an obstacle course…grab a ball with their mouth…pass the ball down to the other person…and have them put the tiny ball into the opening of a pipe on the sand. It sounds really difficult, but evidently the biggest challenge was having your teammates crotch in your face…seemed like a few people couldn’t deal with that.

The guys had to be the funniest, for some reason Wes gave up right off the start. It was a girls elimination so he just didn’t feel like doing it. CT, who looked like he was having fun, kept going on with Knight, whose partner Preston quit as well. Knight and CT tried running the course together, until TJ kicked them off.

SawingSpeaking of teams, the pairing of some ‘rival’ teams are questionable…since Naomi had to leave Thailand for personal reasons, we found out Cooke’s new partner is……Cara Maria….?….? Really? I think she’s annoying and are they even rivals?, for Cooke it might be a blessing in red hair. Cooke is a rookie, but she’s strong and smart and with Cara Maria’s experience I think they’ll go far. For the girls, the team to beat right now is Emily and Paula. It seems like they will be the team to beat for the rest of the game, I can’t imagine any other team coming close to them. Maybe Jonna and Nany….or Cooke and Cara but even then E and P seem like a solid team. They came in first place again last night, giving them immunity from the elimination. Rookie team Anastasia and Jessica came in last which automatically puts them in the elimination round.

69Back at the house, the guys decide on who they want to vote for. The final tally goes for Cooke and Cara to battle it out with the rookies. I was pretty confident these two powerhouses would beat the rookies, but ya never know.

This season’s elimination battle looks similar to last season’s. I feel like they copied the same games, just gave them a different name and look. Last night’s game had both teams suspended in the air, above dirty looking water. Each team had to quickly saw away at a rope that would bring down the losing team right into the water. Before the round even started, Anastasia feels sick, she says her head is spinning and she can’t see straight. At this point, everyone is just sick of her and her rookie drama, C & C were waiting in their position, Cooke couldn’t wait any longer so she decided to let it all out and pee in the water below.

Elimination

Anastasia pulls it together, they go on with the challenge, a few editing cuts later we feel like Anastasia and Jessica might have a chance, but C & C pull through for the win, eliminating the rookie girls team. Who saw that one coming?

SIDE DRAMA:

Trishelle confronts CT about hooking up with Anastasia, of course CT denies it but everyone knows he’s lying. CT asks her why she’s talking about his sex life, somehow Frank gets involved and him and CT almost end up fighting, thank you God for Knight in shining armour. Frank starts crying, he runs to Johnny and tells him of his findings, Johnny laughs it off, and admits he’s super worried about his team’s fate if his partner is already crying in the first week.

Anastasia realizes she’s ‘that’ girl when Theresa tells her about CT and Diem. Anastasia is stunned at the news, as if she’s never watched The Challenge before! How do you not know about CT and Diem?…it’s like the greatest love story in the history of reality TV. She’s a dumbass and she knows it, CT hooked up with her and now she’s all upset and regretful. Sorry A, that still makes you the rookie ho even if you realize it. It’s time for her to leave when she starts a fight with CT, he fights back by saying he never promised her anything, they just hooked up…but she’s embarrassed so she has to put up a front and act all ‘independent woman’. Waste of time, later girl!

DumbassesJordan proves he’s a real man when he’s able to lift the same weights as Thor. If you don’t know, Jordan doesn’t really have a left hand, it’s more like a wrist, but that doesn’t stop him from challenging himself. A quality Sara really admires, and apparently Jordan has the hots for her as well. They hook up in the closet…it’ll be interesting to see where this one goes.
