Episode Summary

It's Brad and Big Easy's (Eric) Birthday and the house is ready to party it up. Diem and Ruthis setup a romantic room getaway for Brad and Tori (who are now engaged) complete with candles and flower pettles. While Isaac is passed out, Landon clips his toe nail in which he has been growing for 6 months. They arrive at the next challenge titles "Don't Let Go". In Guy/Girl pairs, the guy must hold the girl over a ledge the longest. Once he lets go, she will drop and wings several hundred feet over a river below. The winners will be safe from the Duel and win a T-Mobile G-1 w/ Google. Mark and Rachel take the win with a nearly 20 second lead over the seond place team. Tori wants to make a move that can change the game but Brad is worried and wants to stay lowkey for a little longer. Kimberly fears of going into the Duel because she is a rookie. The pick goes as Mark/Rachel-Landon-Brittini-Evan-Deim-Brad-Tori-MJ-Aneesa-Eric-Jenn-Derek-Kimberly-Dunbar-Paula leaving Isaac and Ruthie. Isaac chooses Landon and they get "Spot On". "Spot On" is a climbing wall with open holes that need to be filled with the puzzle pieces below. Landon being the superman he is easily beats Isaac sending him home. Ruthie chooses Kimberly and they pick "Back Off." "Back Off" involves unhooking a clamp for the opponent's back and clipping it onto your base clip. Both rounds Ruthis fought to get the clip right next to Kimberly's home base which gave Kimberly the advantage and the win sending Ruthie home.moreless
