Episode Summary

Bagging on You
From Discoverykids.com

The day that everyone has been dreading has arrived. The Endurance: Hawaii contestants will finally compete in their first Temple Mission, and by the end of the evening one team will be going home! But it's Bryanah and Monroe (YELLOW TEAM) who are the most stressed out because they're handicapped by a five-foot piece of rope since the PURPLE TEAM gave them the Samadhi. Sarah (PUPLE TEAM) reveals the reason they gave the Samadhi to Yellow: she doesn't like Bryanah, and she's not alone. Apparently Lindi, Rachel and Nicole don't like her either. Even Monroe is wishing he were paired with someone else since his partner seems to attract so much drama! It seems the only one in Bryanah's corner is Alex (GREEN TEAM), but even she concedes it's unlikely Yellow will be able to pull off a win with the Samadhi hampering them.

The anxious contestants meet up with JD to find out about the day's mission: "Bagging on You". As JD explains, each team member will be holding two sandbags bound together by a piece of rope. Simultaneously, the teams will throw their tied sandbags onto their team-colored platform several yards out into the pond, trying not to miss and trying to keep the sandbags from falling off after they hit the platform. After every round, the teams that have managed to land their sandbags onto their platform will get to eliminate a team that didn't land their bags on their platform. The last team remaining wins and will chose two teams to go to the Temple of Fate. As the teams take their positions, Yellow Team learns that their five feet of rope means that they will have to throw their bags from five feet further away than everyone else!

JD starts the game and only one team manages to hit their target. The Yellow team! Everyone, even JD, is shocked. Yellow chooses to eliminate Orange (Nicole and Demian); the team they think has the strongest chance of winning BAGGING ON YOU. On the second throw, once again only one team hits their platform and once again it's Yellow! This time, they choose to eliminate Gray (Chris and Lindi) from the game. On throw number three, two teams hit their platforms: Brown (Tom and Vanetta) and Blue (Willa and Antonio). Blue decides to eliminate Green (Alex and Bjorn), while Brown decides to eliminate Purple (Sarah and Reece). On the fourth throw, Red (Rachel and Kareem) is the only team to hit their platform. Despite everyone from their alliance (Orange, Yellow, Purple and Gray) begging them to get rid of the Yellow team, they choose to go against their alliance and eliminate the Blue! On throw number five, in another amazing turn of events, Yellow is once again the only team to hit their platform! And they decide not to return the favor and eliminate Red! On the final throw of the game, Yellow miraculously hits their platform for the fifth time in seven tries to win the game!

Yellow now has the power to send two teams to Temple that evening. They have no pity for Nicole, despite her tearful begging to not send her to Temple, since they know that Orange would have sent them to Temple without thinking twice. Similarly, they have little compassion for the Gray team. But when all of the teams are on the Island with JD for the Temple selection, the Yellow team shocks everyone by selecting Orange and Blue to go to Temple rather than Orange and Gray. Monroe believes that Blue will be less likely to take revenge on Yellow if they win at Temple and return to the jungle. Monroe is hoping the Blue team returns and that the Orange team is out of Endurance: Hawaii once and for all.

Orange and Blue pack up their gear and prepare to go to Temple, but not before Nicole vows revenge on the Yellow team right to Bryanah's face! Nicole swears that if she's able to return, her only goal will be to eliminate the Yellow team. And it seems that Monroe's plan isn't going to work at all, as Antonio also vows to make eliminating Yellow his only mission should he return from Temple!

Orange and Blue finally arrive at the Temple of Fate and JD explains the elimination game in which each team will select either fire, water or wood. Wood floats on water, water puts out the fire, and fire burns wood. The first team that wins two fire, water, wood selections wins the game, the losing team must leave the jungle and return home immediately. The Orange team wins two selections in a row and wins the game. Blue is eliminated, and Orange returns to the huts where they are eagerly welcomed by everyone except the Yellow team.moreless
