As I thought, it’s not possible for Green Monkey team to compete with only 2 people. Yellow Penguin team had to let go one of their member to Green Monkey. Donell automatically wanted Justin because they were buddies. Justin wanted to move over too, but he knew that Yellow Penguin team was stronger so it was better to stick to the winning team. In the end, Cathy volunteered to move to Green Monkey team because she knew she had been performing badly in the past few weeks.
Tonight’s japanese game show was so funny! Poor Cathy and Belinda, they’re suspended in the air with their teammates throwing balls at them, and their opponents pulling them from side to side.
Belinda had the upper hand, her weight played important role because Meaghan wasn’t strong enough to pull her around. Also, as Justin pointed out, Donell and Meaghan swing Belinda from left to right in almost perfect rhythm. It’s so predictable that Andrew and Justin didn’t have too much of a hard time aiming her. Moreover, Belinda was smart, she helped her team by catching the balls that missed and stick it to herself.
Since Yellow Penguin team was first, Justin and Andrew had the advantage of making a strategy by watching Green Monkey. They only pulled Cathy quickly after Donell threw the ball so Green Monkey team didn’t get as many balls as they could. Meaghan didn’t do a good job either because she was having a hard time aiming. 😦 Boohoo, Green Monkey team lost by huge number: 24 to 7. They had to learn how to make Mochi and then they had to make 100 of them. But they got to vent their frustrations by hammering the mochi rice. On the other side, Yellow Penguin team got to go to an ancient shrine to received blessing and learn archery.
Donell and Cathy wanted Meaghan to go to elimination round because she did the worst, but Meaghan tried to work around it. But both Donell and Cathy didn’t want to go to elimination round. Cathy thought Donell did a bad job because as a football player he should’ve performed much better, and Cathy defended herself that there was nothing that she could do if there were no balls around her to catch. According to the game rules, if Green Monkey team couldn’t decide who to go to elimination round, Yellow Penguin team got to choose the 2 people. Donell was confident that he’s not going down because he was sure that he Andrew and Justin were in ‘silent’ alliance. Meanwhile Meaghan lobbied Andrew of Yellow Penguin to put Donell into elimination round, and Andrew agreed.
Since Green Monkey was undecided (like Meaghan wanted), Yellow Penguin choose Donell and Cathy. Poor Donell, he believed so much in Justin and Andrew, but he was betrayed because afterall he’s the biggest competition. Once Donell’s gone, no more guys in Green Monkey team, and it’s good news for Yellow Penguin. Andrew clearly said he didn’t care Meaghan or Cathy as long as Donell was on chopping block. I couldn’t help but think that it’s Donell’s karma. He betrayed Olga, who trusted him, eliminated few weeks ago (read here for story). Now he was betrayed by Justin and Andrew, who he thought would save his ass. I’m not a believer in Karma, but this is mind blowingly obvious.
The elimination game was simple but still funny. The players had to find 3 solid doors out of 7 to bump into. Poor Cathy, the first 3 doors she chose was a fake one so she wasted a lot of time getting smacked by crazy gorilla and panda. Pissed Donnell was so focused he finished the game very quickly. So it’s time for Cathy to say Sayonara.
Well, next week won’t be a good week for Green Monkey team. I don’t know if Donell would find out that Meaghan betrayed him too, but he’d be pissed at Justin and Andrew for sure. Anyways, on the preview of next week’s episode, looks like a funny game is in store. Can’t wait to watch it. 🙂
Tonight’s wipeout is great; more balls than ever before. Also tonight’s wipeout zone was made tougher because the spinner is wrapped in plastic allowing only 2 sides to jump into and the players had to crawl to the other end and use the other opening to exit. In today’s wipeout, the only girl left is the runner up. She did a wonderful job, and only lost for less than 1 minute.
