Mike, who is already crabby about going from coasting to a hundred grand to hanging on the side of a pirate ship covered with crap, is the first to jump off after an hour and ten minutes, claiming it's to show he's not as much of a threat as they think. It looks like Jenn's going to be going down next, and indeed she ditches at an hour twelve. Joe goes down a minute later.
The punishment continues for the other nine, with the tipping and the raining and the cold. Ashley takes a tumble after an hour and 51 minutes. Dan jumps off four minutes after that, claiming as always in the DR that he's still sticking to his strategy of looking weak, but of course Wil isn't fooled at all. "Nobody saw that one coming," he DRs sarcastically.
Frank doesn't last much longer, at his size, and drops after 2:13. Mike has a private talk with Frank after that to warn him that there are people he shouldn't be trusting that he thought he could. After hearing this, Frank DRs that the only person he can trust is Mike. Which I would think is worse than trusting nobody.
Of the six remaining players, Wil looks over at Shane with his pained moaning and hollering, and then at Danielle, who looks good for another hour or two. Wil and Shane agree to go at the same time, so they're both out of it at two hours and 43 minutes.
That leaves just Danielle, Britney, Janelle, and Ian. Janelle decides she can't outlast Britney, who she thinks she's friends with again anyway, and jumps off at 2:49. And we leave the other three hanging through the ads.
We come back from the break with two hours and 52 minutes on the clock. Shane promises to give Danielle another kiss if she wins. How sad would it be if she won now?
Ian, who's starting to wear out, offers Danielle and Britney a deal. Hearing this, Dan gets his coach on and walks over to buck Danielle up big time. Which seems to work.
While most of the eliminated players are watching the final three, Jenn notices that Frank and Mike are suddenly absent. That's because the two of them are in the house so Mike can tell Frank that the votes were lined up to get rid of him and they can't trust anyone. They cement their alliance while Ian gets Danielle to promise he's safe, and jumps off at three hours and fifteen minutes. Britney confirms the same with Danielle, says, "Love you," and steps down.
