Episode Summary

EDIT
Eruption
AIRED:
from Discoverykids.com

The five remaining teams made the trek over to the Temple Mission to compete for the right to stay on the island for at least two more days. The winning team will also have to make the tough decision on which two teams to send to the Temple of Fate. The game, called "Eruption", was based on volcanoes. Pressure builds and builds under the earth's surface until it finally explodes, causing an eruption. This game was the ultimate test of strength and endurance as each team held on to a rope attached to a spring-loaded net containing water balloons that represented a volcano. The team who held on the longest would win ... sound simple? Not so fast. As the teams held on to their own rope, the entire structure holding the nets rose higher and higher off the ground making it nearly impossible to hold on. Since the Orange team had received the Samadhi, their rope was one foot shorter than everyone else's, making it that much harder for them to hold on. After an intense and painful competition, the Blue team walked away with their third victory and the arduous task of sending two teams to the dreaded Temple of Fate. After a long day of Lana, Skyler, and Chelsea trying to convince Jonna to target stronger teams instead of them, the Blue team announced their decision at the Temple Selection: the Orange and Green teams were to battle it out at the Temple of Fate. Since both teams had been up to the Temple before, this trip was even more dramatic than usual. In the end, the Green team proved to have what it takes to win twice, making the Orange team the third team to leave the island. We're now down to the final four teams! Don't miss the next episode when the remaining teams compete for the coveted Samadhi, and inch ever closer to the grand prize!
