Now, it's time for another challenge. And for Jeff still to be wearing that dork hat. He brings in the tribes. He comments that Nakum all looks pissed off, and that they're going to have to work together in this challenge. First, immunity is taken back from Yaxha. Jeff explains that each tribe will make two groups of three, with one person left over. Each group of three will run around with a little catching contraption with three corners. The leftover person will launch balls from a catapult. Any catching team can catch any ball, so you can, indeed, steal from each other. First tribe to catch five will win immunity. Losers go to tribal council. I'm going to warn you right now that this is a great example of a challenge that's practically impossible to recap, since it involves (1) running; and (2) nets. Maybe if I accompanied every line with a gesture and the sound of a choir singing. What do you think?
The launchers are Brian and Lydia. Brian launches first. Bobby Jon, Gary, and Danni catch what he's throwing, so that's one point for Yaxha. Lydia goes next. Her ball is not caught. "You guys are going to have to be a little faster," Steph orders Rafe and Judd, who are sharing her net. Judd says something that is, I think, about how he was also trying to block an approaching Yaxha team, and Steph's all, "Yeah, but listen to ME," and it's really disorienting, I have to say, to find yourself in your living room, watching a contestant you once admired and going, "MEEEEH, muh mis-sen moo MEEEE" in a mocking tone after she speaks a line like that. Brian launches again, and Steph and her group catch one. Tied 1-1. Lydia launches, and nobody gets it. Brian launches, and nobody gets it again, following a collision between Steph and Bobby Jon. Lydia launches, and the Steph group catches it again, so Nakum is up 2-1. Brian launches, and Gary and his group get it, so it's 2-2. Lydia is caught by Steph Inc. again. We are at 3-2, Team Steph. Brian goes, and this time, Jamie, Cindy, and Margaret take it. It's 4-2 Nakum. Steph and her group catch it again, so Nakum takes home the win. Interesting side note: the complete irrelevance of the Blake/Brandon/Amy net, which caught not one thing. Booo!
