A newspaper article appeared in yesterday's edition of the Los Angeles Times, which deals with the first episode of the Inferno III, airing tomorrow. The paper describes the series as falling short because while omitting the competitive spirit of sporting games (which the Challenges have always lacked), it also lacks the drama of memorable, key castmembers who are not present this time around. This article pretty much spoils the entire episode, so stop reading if you don't want to know what will happen.
Jon Caramancia, special writer for the Times, details some opinion-laded stuff that mostly talks about missing Beth S. (Los Angeles), Wes (Austin), Coral (Back to New York) and Evan (Fresh Meat).
But then he gets to the spoilers. (Highlight to read the spoilers.) The first Challenge, which will be a rock climbing challenge which ultimately comes down to Alton (Las Vegas) and Abram (South Pacific). As you remember, on his season, Alton was a rock climbing genius, so much to the surprise of both teams, Alton ends up losing the competition.
But the real drama comes when the casts are playing around later that night. CT (Paris) starts wrestling with Kenny (Fresh Meat), which we've all seen in the previews. However, the two play too rough, and CT ends up with a bloody nose, prompting him to go on the warpath.
"I'd [expletive] lay you out cold," he says. "Naptime, [expletive]!" are some of the classic lines uttered by CT. And wonder why the preview doesn't drum this up better than it should? Apparently, CT goes off somewhere and punches Davis (Denver) in the face, giving him that big black eye we see in the trailer, but the cameras aren't able to catch it.
