The cast decided to party on the beach during the day off. Knight has said his main goal during the challenge was to win Jemmye back and Sarah fawned over Alton 2.0. Melinda missed her life back home and she said this was the first time she has seen Danny in almost 3 years. Both Danny and Melinda confirmed that they have significant others at home, so any hopes for a Challenge reconciliation was further complicated.
Frank expressed that he was running the show. He said that San Diego, Las Vegas, New Orleans, and Cancun are in an alliance. The St. Thomas team wanted to join the alliance, but Trey did not want to kiss Frank’s butt.
The teams went to the “Oil Change” challenge. It was essentially an oil-wrestling match with guys vs. guys and girls vs. girls. The women were looking great in their bathing suits and lathered in olive oil. Mid-way through the competition the alliance started to take over and people started to throw competitions. Sarah realized the plan and was pissed off. San Diego was first to win four pieces and become the power team. The 4 teams in the Frank alliance all survived and the other veterans then strategized to leave the St. Thomas team in a bad position to be in last and be forced to go into the Arena. It came down to Austin to win one out of 4 match ups with St. Thomas. Danny squared off with trey and the midget-wrestling match ended in a draw. Melinda then had to go against Laura and the former Lingerie Foot player and it was a tough matchup, but Austin lost and was forced into the elimination Arena.
Frank called his rise to power “Rookie Justice” and the “Rookie Revolution. Eric wanted his team to go kiss San Diego’s ass because they have an issue with Camilla. Camilla went up to frank to apologize and throw St. Thomas under the bus. Frank then went to St. Thomas to try and get them on their side, but Trey kept opening his mouth. Zach and Frank were upset by Trey’s ego and Marie was pissed off at her teammate for not having a good poker face. San Diego decided to throw team Fresh Meat into the Arena. Frank also chose “Endurance” as the type of game played in the Arena.
The whole house got to go out for a night on the town. Zach and Jonna were dancing and having fun. Jonna was talking very long-term stuff. Knight was trying his best to prove himself to Jemmye, but she was not having it. Melinda tried to step in and help them out. Knight said he would marry Jemmye and Melinda thought that was big, but Jemmye called out Melinda’s marriage to Danny as proof that a proposal is not a trump card. Knight spoke to Danny about the situation, but he said this was a game and he needed to get focused. Danny also verbalized that he has been on MTV shows with a girlfriend, a fiancée, a wife, and now a divorcee and it is all about business for him.
Camilla wanted to get her team together, but she said she would not want to go in. Brandon also said he did not want to go in, but since it will be an endurance challenge Eric seems to be a huge liability (pun intended). Brandon said he has paid his dues and he was fine with the team in power making the decision for them. All the teams showed up to the Arena. Melinda and Danny were forced to take on Camilla and Big Eric in a game called Balls out. They had to slide balls back and forth over a wall and after 5 minutes whoever had the fewest balls on their side win. The game was awesome and Eric’s height seemed to help a lot. Eric and Camilla won with 15 balls. It was somewhat of a merci killing as the divorcees were put out of their misery.
Back at the house Trey cried to Laura about how he has been vilified by all the other teams. He even started to cry and it was embarrassing.
