First drink: Grasshopper cocktail, which is blended grasshopper and crickets. Holly gets her glass to the table first, and John thinks he's at a disadvantage because of his height. Which is sort of true, because it was a matter of seconds. Next drink: tarantula teaser, which is blended tarantula. John's bending over this time, to be closer to the drink. John wins that round, easily. Damien asks him what is was like to drink his worst fear. He says it tastes like pistachios, because in his mind that's what he likes so that's what it all tastes like. But then he tells us in confessional that it was hairy and gross and they spit out whatever wasn't caught in their teeth. Ew. Next drink: Dung beetle daiquiri. Which is somehow bright blue. John looks horrified, and we go to commercial. Right, because he drank tarantula, but won't drink that. Whatever.
We're back with the dung beetle daiquiri. It's in a martini glass. John barely gets it down first. Neither of them liked it, and she says it scratches your throat. He's not looking so hot, either. Damien tells us that if John gets one more, he wins. In case you can't count to three yourself. Next drink: scorpion sunrise, which has a dead scorpion floating in it. Damien says it's an "extra element," which I guess means they have to eat it. The drink is RED, by the way, so I don't actually know what's in it, but I don't think scorpions would be red. Also, who is paid to blend up creatures for this show? And where is PETA when we need them? (I'm kidding. Don't email me.) Holly gets that one first. They both swallow their scorpions whole, but Damien and Myleene make a big deal about her doing it, and she says it's stingy. Last drink: Chili coladas, which are hot pepper chilies blended into a glass. Um, really? John gets his glass down first, but Damien pretends it's too close to call and we have to "review the tape." We get to see it again, and it's still obvious. Damien says that after reviewing the tape, we will declare the winner... John. Wow, that fake drama was awesome.
Holly thinks John better win now. He talks about why they brought her back instead of "that other person." And as he does that, he pours the rest of Holly's chili drink into his glass and drinks it. He says it's his victory champagne. And he pours some of it on his head. Holly tells him he better win now. He says he better. He heads back to camp and says he came to win. He loves Holly, but if it's between "me and you losing, I'll take you losing." Holly leaves with no regrets. She knows everyone in camp will be a friend for life. Back in camp, Patti and Sanjaya talk about how their two best friends are competing, and only one will come back. Torrie says one of them will be really upset, and they're just hoping it will be the other one. Lou says he is sad no matter who leaves, but it's the first time they've been threatened with losing John. Patti's worried because Holly's fearless and John's a vegan. Yeah, well, not so much anymore, I think. Everyone sits around camp, restless, when John comes whistling back in. Lou greets him, and Patti's totally relieved. He tells them how close it was, and how good Holly was. They're all proud of Holly for fighting hard. Sanjaya will miss her, but the relationship isn't over.
