Episode Summary

EDIT
Rollerball
AIRED:

With the second Temple mission looming, tensions are high on the beach. Michelle, of the Orange team, is determined to win the challenge, in hopes of gaining more respect, and Jenna explains that the brown team's strategy is to win.

As the teams meet on the beach, they learn about the temple mission, entitled "Rollerball". In the challenge, each teammate takes one side of a board with small walls scattered across the board. The object is to move two balls from one side of the board to the other, maneuvering around the walls and falling into a pocket on the other side of the board. The first team to drop both balls into the pocket wins the temple mission, and will get the privilege of sending two teams to Temple.
Shortly after the challenge begins, both the brown teams and the green teams get one ball into the pocket. While the other teams continue to have trouble keeping their first ball on the board, the green and brown team appear to be neck and neck. However, the green team is able to get their second ball in the pocket seconds before the brown team, giving them their second temple mission win.

However, their win does have a downside. Keetin believes that it's great they won the challenge, but they'll get another enemy in the process.
The other teens are clueless as to who the Green team will be sending to temple, although most teams are sure the orange team will be visiting the temple again.
Calley makes her own strategic moves to send who SHE wants to Temple. On the beach, Calley tells Keetin that the Purple team MUST go, and Keetin seems to agree. To seal the deal, Calley tells Keetin that Annie has been saying she doesn't like Mike. When Keetin tells Mike what Calley has told her, Mike is hesitant to believe that Annie would openly say she doesn't like him.

The teams later meet with J.D. near their huts to learn who will be visiting the Temple. Keetin reveals that the Green team will be sending the Orange team, and surprisingly, the Red team. Everyone is shocked, and the Red team is understandably upset. Jacquelynn and Phil discuss why they think they are being sent to the Temple, and both have no reasons they can think of, in fact, they both agreed they thought they were friends with the Green team. In the confessional, Jacquelynn vows to get her revenge on the Green team if she returns from the Temple.

Later that evening, the Red team and the Orange team leave their huts for the floating Temple of Fate. At the temple, the teams are introduced to the rules of the "rock-paper-scissors" like challenge. In round 1, the nervous Red team chooses FIRE, but are beat by the unusually calm Orange team, who choose WATER. With one last chance to stay in the game, the Red team chooses wood in the challenges second round. Unfortunately, the Orange team chooses Fire. Fire burns wood, and with that, the Red team is eliminated from the game.
Angry and upset, the Red teams leaves the Temple of Fate, as the remaining teams welcome the Orange team back to the beach with cheers and hugs.moreless
