|"Dear Arthur, you make really dumb choices. Sincerely, Alison"|
(This short film explains the phrase "THE H IS O". It is SO NSFW. But it is SF anyone that loves Ben Stiller and Will Ferrell.)
The show starts with Larialmy's (sp?) elimination. The BJ's are brought into the elimination room with the Unknowns so Ali can break the news: It is now Red versus Black. "Johnny Cash style," quips Hannah. "It's war," a sleep deprived looking Justin mumbles.
To celebrate the new coupling, Ali introduces a Valentine's themed Temptation. If only there had been a chocolate fountain! The Losers are tempted by chocolates of all shapes and sizes. They have three minutes to decide if they are going to eat the chocolate or not, and if they do partake, whoever eats the most wins. What is the prize? The winner can send two members of their team to the other side in exchange for two members of the other team. Best part? The winner remains in a cloak of secrecy, never to be revealed.
OOOOHHHH. Everyone is on the same page, only eat chocolates so they can keep their teams together. . .right? Oh, Arthur didn't get that memo. When Arthur gets to the challenge he opens his mouth wide, engaging in food eating competition style practices, and shoves chocolate into his mouth for the entire three minutes. The end result: 35 pieces eaten.
Ali announces that someone DID indeed want to change teams, and Jay and Jen from the Black team will now be switching places with Sarah and Deni from the Red team. Everyone cries like they are never going to see each other again, and as the tears are being dried, Arthur decides to pipe up and admit that he is the master mind behind the diabolical plan. WHAT? NO.
Arthur doesn't like to be told what to do, so he chose to decide for everyone else. And I don't know what happened between him and Jay and Jen, but he got rid of them last time, too. He just doesn't trust them? WHAT HAPPENED!?!? It is like Michael Scott's hatred of Toby on "The Office": It is never fully explained.
Everyone turns on Arthur because of his strategy. Did I mention he picked Sarah and Deni because he plans on voting them off to save his dad? Oh, yeah. Arthur needs to sleep with the door locked tonight.
The next morning in the gym, Jillian and Bob meet their new team members and try to figure out why Arthur played such a stupid card. In a surprising turn of events, Arthur bursts into tears and Jillian hugs and comforts him. Never saw that happening.
The Red team joins the Black team in the gym and there is a lot of snarking and back biting amongst the two. One is too loud, one is too soft, one is too hard, one is too easy, blah blah blah. What they fail to realize is that they are ALL right. Both training methods are effective, it just depends on which style you prefer.
Then it is on to the first Red versus Black challenge, where the Black team smokes the Red team. What held up the Red team? Having to guess the calorie counts of various junk foods. Looks like being at the Resort instead of making your own food is their Achilles heel. The Black team wins videos from home, gets snugly, and we discover that Deni missed her own daughter's wedding to be on the show. That is commitment.
