After over three hours of the hunt, the gold team started dawdling. The only thing keeping them motivated was insulting the red team. But The Secret worked against them, leading them directly toward the obsession of their negative thoughts. Still pissed, the gold team ran away from the red team uphill. With only five minutes left, the gold team got hung up on the altitude and their grudge. It was the slowest Capture chase ever, with Rob and Jacob plodding behind Gold until Chris fell down and Rob placed the talon on his back before collapsing.
"We did it!" Rob cried, his oxygen levels getting dangerously low.
Back at the village, the teams celebrated and the gold team got quieter and quieter. Nick didn't regret not playing the social game because it's not who he is and he doesn't lie to people by pretending to like them. Gold tried to convince Pink, as a last ditch effort, that Red was the stronger team.
The teal team started things off, obviously voting for Gold. The white team voted for Red, and so did the green team, having played an equally poor social game. Our Brooklyn girls on the black team voted against Gold and it all came down to the pink team. Jacob tried his most charming smile, which was surprisingly white for having been in the wilderness for so long. Maybe he had some of Eric's toothpaste (Aquadouche Extra Whitening).
The pink team voted for Gold, who claimed to be leaving the game having played it "like a good person would, honorably and straight up with everybody." And just like James and Rebecca, the siblings claimed to have grown closer, which is almost as good as $250,000 but actually not even close.
