Move one step at a time

Last night, on The Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Fresh Meat 2, Wes started to worry that soon, he and Mandi would be thrown into Exile. He began grilling CJ and Sydney about their Exile experience. The problem is that CJ and Sydney are lying… and really, there was no reason to lie. It definitely didn’t help their team. In fact, it’s going to seriously hurt them because it’s clear to the world that they’re BS-ing.
The challenge on this episode, Turn Style, was pretty straight forward – turn a wheel and push yourself towards the finish line and your opponents away from it. Brute strength would pay off here! The first round took over an HOUR as Ryan and Theresa, Landon and Carley, Kenny and Laurel, and Pete and Jillian found themselves at a standstill. Then, finding a surge of strength like the Incredible Hulk, Pete pushed his team (Jill, Kenny, Laurel) to victory. In the second round, Wes and Mandi and CJ and Sydney make quick work of Noor and Jen and Luke and Ev. Really? In the next round, Kenny and Laurel and Pete and Jillian win and head to the final round. Don’t ask me why but Kenny and Laurel lay down and die in order to give Pete and Jillian the win and keep them safe from Exile.
Back at the house, Wes and Evelyn realize that they could be in trouble so they take the “better you than me” attitude and throw Landon and CJ under the bus. Wes strikes up an hour long truce with Kenny to get his side to vote in Landon and his alliance takes care of the rest, sending CJ in against him. Wes thinks he masterminded this whole thing but the idiot juts tore his own alliance apart. His numbers are dwindling by the minute!
At Exile, things kick off with a puzzle that leave CJ and Sydney completely stumped. Landon and Carley make quick work of it and really fly through the rest of the course. In fact, it takes CJ and Sydney over two hours to get through the course because they were that bad at puzzles. Even worse, they didn’t realize just what a terrible performance they turned in.
So Landon and Carley are back in the house but that doesn’t necessarily mean that Wes has gained an alliance member back. Would you trust him and Ev after being thrown under the bus like that?
