The Gauntlet 2 – Derrick The Bulldog

February 07, 2006 12:45 AM by Joe Blackmon

The episode starts off with Jodi and Alton talking to each other on the deck.  Alton explains that he still worries about the challenges and being a captain with the possibility of facing the gauntlet every challenge.  Jodi comments that she really enjoys Alton’s company, he’s great to be around and it doesn’t hurt that he’s hot as well.  Alton says he’s really attracted to Jodi but he’s just come off a long relationship so it’s hard, but he really enjoys being around Jodi.

Beth sits with Syrus and talks about the differences in the teams and says Syrus is the only friend she has here.  Robin receives the clue to get buck wild and ready to go at 9AM tomorrow.  The first challenge is called Buccaneer.  One team has to sit on barrels held up in the air by ropes.  They have to hold on with just their legs while the other team has to pull at the ropes and try to knock the other team off.

The rookies are up first on the barrels.  The vets can’t knock anyone off.  David comments his team has absolutely no strategy at all.  The vets manage to get no one off so the rookies only have to get one person off to win the 10,000.  The rookies follow in the vets’ footsteps, no strategy, just pull on the ropes, and they get no results.  No one falls off the barrels.  Jodi saves the day and comes up with this bright idea to have some people on one side to pull the rope and then have some on the other side pull with a 3 count in between to form a wave motion.  This plan works and big Syrus comes falling down and the rooks take the victory.

Back at the house the vets go to deliberate who is going to go into the gauntlet. Derrick says he can’t decide who he wants in the gauntlet because he likes everyone here.  Aneesa comments that the least Syrus could do is step up since he lost it for the team.  The votes are in, and Syrus is chosen.  The wheel spins onto captain’s choice.  To everyones surprise, Derrick picks beach brawl. Everyone is shocked and asks Derrick why he chose that, and Derrick says he might have made a big mistake.  Syrus outweighs him by 80lbs so he could be going home.

They oil themselves up and begin.   Derrick charges Syrus, pushing him out of the circle.  Syrus starts yelling about Derrick starting before the whistle.  Second round Derrick pushes Syrus out again, and Syrus complains again.  It is now 2-0.  Syrus is raging mad at this point and swings Derrick out of the circle.  It’s 2-1 down to the final round.  Derrick with unbelievable strength picks Syrus up with leverage and literally runs him out of the circle.  Derrick takes the win, and everyone is shocked and impressed with his strength.  Beth is very sad and disappointed that Syrus is leaving and says she feels like she might not have the strength to go on.  Everyone says goodbye to Syrus, Beth is crying.

Everyone goes out to a club, partying and dancing.   Jodi and Alton are hanging out.  Alton says he sees Jodi and himself having a relationship long after Tebago. They start making out.

Kind of a bland episode tonight, but man the strength on Derrick is unreal, that kid is a bulldog and force to be reckoned with among the guys.  Jodi and Alton, I think we all saw this coming, Jodi to me seems like she takes to any guy who will show her attention. Alton, well you’re a lady killer and I can’t be a hater so rock on brother.

    Derrick’s intensity reminds me of James Dean. He wears his heart on his sleeve and gives 100% for everything. I’m so happy his teammates have gone from laughing at him (at the beginning of the Gauntlet) to awed respect.

    Derrick is the best one out there. He stands out from all of the other competitors because of the heart he puts into the game and his determination. Their team lost any hope of winning when Derrick was sent home.

    I love Derrick!! I was so upset when he lost against Timmy in reverse tug-of-war. @ the very end he yelled NOOO!! really loud and then he lost. I shed a tear it made me so sad. Derrick deserved to be there more then anyone there. He put his heart into the game and never gave up, no matter what came his way. I watched almost every real world and challenge show theer was. I was really happy when Derrick was on the show, hes the best!! And talk about being the hottest guy on t.v anyway lol. He respected his teammates…( except for Beth, but who likes her anyway ) lol. He was always giving a 100%. I can’t wait till the next chalenge show comes on. Im going to watch it. And I can’t wait to see Derrick on it either ^_^
    Derrick, if u ever read any of these comments that pplz put in here about u, i just want u to know that we all love u and will be there to back u up and watch u beat everyone forever. I know how hard it is to be stuck in a position where Timmy wants to vote himself in and u think David should go in. I would have gone crazy!>!>!>!> Well that’s all I have to say. Derrick, u rock the universe!! DONT CHANGE!!!! KEEP GIVING 100% AND DOING YOUR BEST!!!! BYE!!
