So, human curling commences. It's about as exciting as you would think watching people sitting on ice blocks slide slowly toward a circle would be. So, I amuse myself by trying to count the number of lower back tramp stamps up in that place. How many of them do you think involve Chinese characters?
In the end Team Success wins. Davis! Davis gets his first interview.... in which all he has to say is that he's out of the game now. They go into the second round. Interminable ice sliding. Listen, every minute I'm watching someone get pushed around is a minute I'm NOT spending watching Katie smoke a pack of Marlboro Lights. Big Easy interrupts this insanely boring challenge with an insanely boring and inane interview: he notes that, now that he's out of the competition, it's cool, cuz now we get to see what happens next. Thank you, Big Easy (and MTV) for informing us that when one thing finishes, we get to see what the next thing is. I HAD FORGOTTEN HOW TIME WORKS THERE FOR A MOMENT.
Brad admires what an "all star player" Tori is. He is taken with her skill at sitting still on a block of ice. Admittedly, it is a skill many of us covet. Final round is between Mark/Rachel and Landon/Brittini. Mark and Rachel win and are safe from the Duel.
Back at the house, Mark and Rachel deliberate the Kickball Pecking Order. Rachel wants to pick Aneesa first, since she won the Duel last time. Mark thinks Aneesa should be told to pick Landon, since he came in second during the challenge.
The camera finds Evan inside his bedroom through the hole that CT punched in the wall. VERITE!!! MJ wants to know who Evan will pick; Evan says Paula. MJ is going to ask Paula to pick him. MJ is huge, but sort of funnily obviously not on the steroid bandwagon. Like he's not all bizarrely cut like the other dudes, he just looks kind of steak-eating farm-handish. Evan tells MJ that Paula loves Ryan; MJ thinks Ryan is starting to become a player in the game. Isaac's in there hating on the strategizing. He thinks that either he or Ryan will be picked last.
Outside, Ryan and Paula shiver in the cold and Paula BSes Ryan about how she's going to do everything she can to help make sure he isn't picked last. Ryan doesn't trust any of these bitches.
