Back in the house. Everyone is shocked and thinks no one should listen to Paula and Evan anymore. Ryan is pissed and thinks Paula's head is so far up the boys' asses and then interviews all sensitively that she always falls for these meatheads who are going to screw her over. Except Paula didn't do what the meatheads wanted her to do. But, meanwhile, the Meathead Convention (including Rachel, natch) is meeting in the hallway and discussing how, as Evan interviews, Paula just "went rogue." PAULA BLACK OPS! Furthermore, "she's off the map," "she went AWOL," "she's off the reservation." Evan is in a tight spot now because nobody in his alliance wants to protect Paula anymore.
The Duel. Girls go first. Robin and Kimberly have to climb a pole that has hand and foot holds all around it. Whoever gets to the top first wins. The catch is some of the hand and foot holds would work for someone on either side of the pole, so they'll have the opportunity to knock one another off. They start climbing. Well, Kimberly starts climbing, and Robin can't even get off the ground for a while. The holds are pretty small, so it's hard to grab hold of them.
Commercials. They're still at it, it's cold, Kimberly is shaking, blah blah, and then Kimberly wins. Oh, damn. There isn't a universe in the galaxy where anyone anywhere would prefer keeping Kimberly around rather than Robin. I mean, even though she didn't bring that crazy trannie voice that she had that one season ("D! I just wanna know what it feels like to win!'"), Robin is usually someone we can count on.
Boys' Duel. The challenge is that they need to try to push one another off a platform. MJ versus Ryan. Sigh. This week things are NOT going my way! Ryan interviews very unconvincingly that he's just going to try to catch him off balance. They start and MJ Mack Trucks his way over to Ryan, who is immediately knocked onto his knees. Aneesa does the producer's bidding and interviews that even though MJ just plowed into Ryan, there's a moment when you thought, "is Ryan about to knock MJ's fat body off the platform?" No, Aneesa, this is not the time to use the second person. Maybe YOU thought that, but WE did not. Ryan tumbles off.
