Forty-five minutes remained in the second day of the hunt as Luke Tipple announced the location of the open supply station. James and Rebecca opted not to get closer to the supply station for fear of getting nabbed by the hunt team. Jacob and Rob were not afraid, and set out to prove that gay men can be resourceful and read maps just like anyone else. The hunt team camped out just outside the supply station, and watched the red team enter.
Jacob and Rob discovered two cakes at the supply station, which have "Happy Birthday" spelled out on top in frosting. It was not anyone's birthday, but I guess they wanted it to be clear that it's "birthday cake." Plus, throwing a birthday cake in the mud would really be an awful thing to do. Jacob scarfed down the cake, taking his sweet time, and Rob encouraged him to leave. 20 minutes remained for the hunt team. And now, Moments I Want an Animated Gif of Theater:
Rob: You're doing this for cake?
Jacob: YES, I'm doing this for cake!
Jacob just won my heart forever and ever. I would do anything for chocolate cake, even without Luke starving me days prior. The red team left the confines of the supply station, and the blue team charged up their talons to pursue. Rob and Jacob ran, but in a moment of absolute tragedy, Jacob was too full of cake not to get caught.
"The moment we were seized by the blue team, I almost saw our elimination," Rob said, "there's just no hiding our physical capabilities." I hope that, as Rob just assumed, everyone learned a lesson in equality over the last two hunts.
The blue team successfully captured both previous hunt teams, so there's very little logic in keeping one over the other around in hopes that they can capture the blue team. But no one was thinking strategy, as Kaliesha burst into the village shouting, "SHADY!" at the black team. The black team flew immediately into full Brooklyn mode, and the red and teal teams watched in delight because the village has to have some forms of entertainment.
"Don't call us shady, that you don't do," one of the Brooklyn girls said. Kaliesha argued that she just did, so … The shorter Brooklyn girl threatens to bitch-slap Kaliesha out of the freakin' forest. Noelle and Sabrina called it Revenge of the Nerds: Wilderness Edition, even though I'm not sure if anyone out there is an actual nerd. Everyone enjoyed it immensely.
After the blue team sat in some Adirondack chairs talking about how awesome they are, the prey teams planned votes for the elimination. Both teams are strong players and nice people, although Erica is a bit whiny. When interviewed by Luke Tipple at the elimination ceremony, the red team came out on top, joking lightly about cake and smiling with perfectly white teeth. The lime team had the final vote, sending Ryan and Erica of the purple team vaulting out of the game to eat subs prepared by a sandwich artist. Rob and Jacob are here, they're queer, get used to it!
