This ain't pretty. And someone obviously wants to cast herself as the villain, because there is no nicer guy than Eric. Laurel's unprovoked tirade makes the whole hot-tub uneasy, and that tub includes two girls making out.
But rest easy, Big Easy! This is your episode to shine. Easy E performs well in the challenge, and despite getting voted into the Goulag, makes it out!
Shauvon, however, SINGLE-HANDEDLY eliminated her team from the challenge by refusing to participate. Why? This week's challenge reminded her of one she did during the Ruins season, when she descended into the water and popped an implant. Like this.
So Shauvon's whole team hates her, and she UNANIMOUSLY gets voted into the Goulag. How does she respond to adversity? She quits. Shauvon refuses to participate in the Goulag and instead forfeits. So the team pariah saw herself out. Host TJ Lavin put it best by saying "Grey team you lost an asset (Vinny), but you also gained losing someone." Ah yes, the Grey team also lost a devastated Vinny.
This episode's challenge was very ABC's-Wipeout-esque, and one person who took a particularly brutal hit was Katie. Let's take a look at her before and after face shall we?
What's funny is that for the rest of the episode, Katie (figuratively) jumps off the deep end. This probably has to do with the fact that even though she was a trooper and took a hit for the team, she got voted into the Goulag. Thank goodness for Shauvon, right?
Up-to-date Season Tally:
Red Team has lost 1 player
Blue Team has lost 2 players
Grey Team has lost 3 players
Host TJ Lavin did not say "You Killed It," leaving his season count at zero.
Also, update on his health: he is currently in a doctor-induced coma after his motorcycle crash on the 14th. Best of luck TJ.
