Guys Duel. The challenge is that they each need to complete a puzzle with missing pieces. The catch is the puzzle is a giant vertical climbing wall. So they need to take the missing pieces from a table on the ground, and plug them into the right spots by climbing the wall. Evan interviews pissily. Davis interviews that he's a "logical, introverted, thinker kind of guy." They start and immediately Evan is kind of stompy and frustrated. Oh, how I would love if Evan went home, but I am so clearly being manipulated into thinking that is possible
Commercials. They're still at it, Diem interviews that the challenge is not just mental, it's not just physical, it's EVERYTHING. The show quits trying to trick me, and a counter comes up in the corner and we see that Evan has way more puzzle pieces placed and then it's just a matter of seconds 'til Teej's airhorn. Evan wins. Davis interviews that it sucks because he had the opportunity to change the game and he lost it. So true. This shit is kinda boring. Evan going home would have been great.
But no such luck. We continue to be sentenced to a plague of ten thousand years of Evan's stupid interviews. Now, he wants to tell us that what upsets him most is that Paula now hates him. She's a dear friend of his. She's been to his house and met his family. "She showed her boobs to my younger brother." Over spaghetti? Or just after? He wants to fix things with her. He approaches her, she calls him a "wussy." Then the "throw under the bus" thesis. Evan tells her that she's blowing things out of proportion. Now cut outside, and Paula cries to Jenn about losing Evan as a friend. Jenn ghetto cheerleads her. I love Jenn for breaking down the unfair stereotype of cheerleaders.
Over amongst the boys, Nehemiah speaks energetically but confusingly. Something about Evan playing "both sides of the totem pole." That's what Landon said. (Oh, I just coined that shit.) But then he arrives at his thesis: "He acting a bitch. The bitch that he is inside." Brad tells Nehemiah that he loves Evan, but he doesn't like how he's playing. Everyone gathers around the grill and raises their glasses.
Everyone except Evan. Who is in bed reading. Acting the bitch.
