Last night, Susie (Australia) was at the center of controversy as she was forced to win the LifeShield and make a hard decision. THe episode started with Susie being thrown into a pool by Abram (South Pacific). Although Abram did it as a complete joke, Susie was visably unnerved by his antics, and sought solace with Cara (South Pacific) and Paula (Key West).
The mission was to climb between two rope ladders using rope swings. The fastest guy and girl would get a trip to Hawaii. Susie needed to only beat Paula, as Cara would most likely take herself out of the competition at Susie's behest.
Some people have trouble with it. Anessa (Chicago), who was also up, failed to complete it. Kenny (Fresh Meat) and John (Key West) also fall. Cara looks like she's making good time, until she falls off the ladder. Paula is also doing well, but she too falls off. Alton (Las Vegas) makes the course in an astounding time.
Susie acknowledges the fact that all she needs to do is to complete the course to make it to the end. She seems like she is having trouble with the course, only until Paula steps up and tells her exactly what to do. Susie ends up completing the mission, thus winning the LifeShield. Evelyn (Fresh Meat) also steps it up and beats most of the guys.
In the final tally, Evelyn and Susie win the LifeShields, with Ev taking home the trip. Alton also takes home the trup to Hawaii.
Before the final mission, the Good Guys are sitting around trying to convince Susie to pick Cara and not Paula to go into the Inferno. While the team is not convinced that Cara is a good competitor, Cara says that she played the game hard and hasn't had a chance to show what she can do, because she's had to hold back because Susie was sent to the Inferno each time.
At the Inferno, Evelyn sends in Aneesa. Susie says that she made a decision between what she thought was right and what the team thought was right. She picks Paula to go into the Inferno. John is visably upset at her decision. However, in the Shimmy, Paula easily shimmies up two walls and beats Aneesa, sending her home in the rematch of the Duel.
Next episode: The final mission goes down and the Good Guys alienate Susie and Cara by not talking to them. Can the Good Guys pull it together for the final mission?
