the post-Ep9 preview,
the RC involves a muddy obstacle course. The competition seems
to be being run in pairs, with each pair tethered together at the
waist. Pots also appear to be part of it: Judd and Gary are each
shown carrying a clay pot of some kind. Danni and Steph (we think
that's Steph, anyway) are shown at the same obstacle, so they may
be on the same team. Rafe and Jamie are shown on the sidelines
together, and Judd and Gary are shown together. We also see Rafe
and Jamie competing against Lydia and Cindy. There only appear
to be two lanes on the course, so either two pairs compete together
against another two pairs, or the challenge is run in heats. More
likely the latter, we guess.
What do they win? From the web promo,
videos from home appear to be part of the reward. But there's also
an arrival by an (apparently empty) helicopter. As quartzeye suggested
at Sucks, the episode title suggests there might be
an overnight getaway, including a meal. The winners may thus be
a pair of enemies. That probably rules out Rafe and Jamie, because
they're in an alliance (even though Jamie's paranoia is bugging
Rafe). Likewise, CIndy and Lydia, neither of whom would bother
anyone, can't be it. That leaves Steph and Danni (and we hear Steph
say "Oh my God" when the helicopter lands), or Judd and
Gary. Tough call, but we'll go along with the thinking in MeSS that this might be four-person teams. If so, the winners
are most likely Steph, Danni, Gary and Judd.
suggested by Ives at
MeSS, these caps appear to be from a non-mud challenge, and may
be the IC. Ives thinks it could involve following the rope twisted
around the wooden structure, to freedom and immunity. Sounds good
to us. Who wins? Gary or Danni seem like good guesses. Since Danni's
shown, we'll pick her.
had initially picked Jamie for this episode, based on ToothOfTime's
description of Jamie winning a food challenge, and getting booted
in that same episode. But clearly, since both of those facts were
proven inaccurate in Ep9 (although he did indeed give up his place
in line), that's no longer a factor.
Still, Jamie appears to be the obvious boot here. Stephenie was
considering dumping him in Ep9, but he won immunity. And Steph
and Rafe are shown asking Lydia (Jamie's only real ally) to make
a difficult decision. So he should still be the odds-on favorite
for a boot here. There's also the KingNeptune spoiler,
which states that Jamie's twin brother Ramie got a ticket to Guatemala
(for the family visit episode - either Ep11 or Ep12), but didn't
a Jamie boot would fit quite well here.
Alternatively, it's possible the other combatant in the Post-Ep9
preview (Gary), goes here. But this seems a bit less likely. So
we're picking Jamie for now. Stay tuned.
