The episode begins with the cast arriving in South Africa. They're all ready to start to throw down and prove themselves. The group goes to what Susie (Australia) calls "The Pits of Hell" and TJ Lavin walks out. He tells them that the two teams are "Bad Asses" and "Good Guys".
TJ welcomes everybody and explains the rules. There's team challenges and individual challenges. There are Infernos in every other challenge and alternate between men and women. After every other challenge, the teams announce which person from the opposite team will go the Inferno. The individual challenge, the next day, is the opportunity to save yourself if you're chosen. If you win the "LifeShield" you can put somebody of the same team, of the same sex, into the Inferno instead of you.
There's 15 Challenges worth $10,000 a piece with a final Challenge worth $150,000. Total grand prize with prizes is over $400,000. Only the people in the final teams get the prize money at the end.
They get to their house and they go crazy. Timmy (USA Tour 2) thinks he's a chaperone. CT (Paris) already misses Diem (Fresh Meat). Cara (South Pacific) mentions that she and Susie (Australia) are in an alliance. Aneesa (Chicago) loves her team. Jenn (Denver) needs to keep her eye open. Tonya (Chicago) is married, but she's still a "wild child." Evelyn (Fresh Meat) is just thinking "revenge" now that Danny (Austin) is not holding her down. CT cheers the group, which surprises Susie. Danny claims this is all fake as hell, and can't wait until the real personalities come out.
CT and Kenny (Fresh Meat) are wrestling. CT is obviously drunk and overreacts to a bloody nose that Kenny gives him. The house laughs at the big blow-up between the two. CT is automatically ridiculed for he's big persona. Camera fades to black, Davis (Denver) is in the bathroom with John (Key West). The camera didn't catch CT punching Davis in the face. John is pretty upset and Abram (South Pacific) comes in to see what's wrong.
Davis walks by CT and Abram, when CT asked him if he could take a punch. Davis said yeah. CT punched him. Tyrie (Denver) talks to CT. Alton (Las Vegas) talks to CT. He denies it, he's still drunk. Davis is visibly upset. A producer takes CT out of the house for him to leave. CT leaves.
TJ comes into the house. He reiterates that the number one rule is not using physical violence against each other. TJ tells the group that CT is going home. Danny is assured that it'll be Wes (Austin). Kenny thinks it'll be either Wes, Evan (Fresh Meat) or Derrick (Extreme). Ace (Paris) doesn't think that it'll help them.
They get their new mission clue. Timmy is nervous about how the group will perform since he's never met them. Derrick arrives in the house later that night. The house is excited to see him. So far, the Good Guys seem to be intimidated by the Bad Asses. Davis tells him he's the reason why he's there.
They get to the Lawrenceville Estate in Somersfield, South Africa. The team is tangled up in the air, 30 feet high, and they have to untangle themselves and drop down into the water to win the Challenge and $10,000. Immediately, the Good Guys, who are going first, notice that the quick release harness attached to their suit can easily be detached with the flailing feet in the tangled web of masses. Colie gets her harness detached and then lies on Davis for support, who then gets his harness detached, and they fall in the water. The team gets DQed.
The Bad Asses get their turn with no time limit. They just have to get it done. They do with it with almost no problem. The Bad Asses bank $10,000. The both teams now have to nominate two men into the Inferno. Davis is immediately brought up. Jenn and Tyrie come to his defense and say that he's one of the mentally weakest competitors because of what happened last night. The Good Guys select Abram. The Bad Asses select Davis.
The second challenge is "Ladder Race" where they have to summit a tower and cross towers with a ladder. The fastest time gets $10,000 and a Lifeshield for the winner. The Bad Asses win another match-up and we find out that Abe and Evelyn win the LCD TV and Abe wins the LifeShield. Alton also earns the LifeShield. Alton actually surprises the group and volunteers himself to save Davis. Abram picks Tyrie, saying that he might cause problems for Tyrie.
And... to be continued! Until next week!
