Reality High Test Results, October 5 – 11: Who’s the Bigger Idiot?Page 3

I alternately frowned and smiled at Peter & Sarah when I saw their answers to the ninth question:
9. True or False: It’s never a good idea to even consider giving up in the middle of an incredibly difficult task unless it’s a Detour task with both options close by.
Peter answered “False,” while Sara answered “True.” I told them that the correct answer was “True.” Peter was having a very hard time with the Under Detour, which involved grabbing oyster baskets. Peter considered quitting when his and Sarah’s sampan ran into Tom & Terry’s. I told Peter that unless it was a Detour task with both options close by, it’s generally a terrible idea to give up in the middle of a task. To make matters worse for him, Sarah hadn’t ever really considered giving up during the challenging Roadblock, although she did once think that she couldn’t do it. Peter started challenging me, and I told him that unless he stopped doing so, he’d be joining Rob & Kimberly in Detention. That shut him up.
Meanwhile, I just couldn’t believe Dustin & Kandice’s answer to the final question:
10. You receive your clue telling you to head to the Pit Stop. What is the best thing to do with your clue?
A. Keep it safe and sound.
Well, at least Dustin & Kandice didn’t answer “C.” However, they answered “B,” and that was no better. You really shouldn’t allow your clue to get shredded! You might lose valuable information and have to figure out what your next move is. They were just lucky that Tom & Terry were so incompetent when it came to rowing, otherwise they would’ve been done for. When I told them this, they admitted that they made a mistake and that they won’t make the same mistake again. I certainly hope not!
Tom & Terry had been doing well before the Detour, and now they’re out. What went wrong? Well, their biggest problem seems to have been that they just couldn’t row a sampan to save their lives. It also didn’t help their cause any that they couldn’t find any pearl baskets right away, and that by the time they did begin getting pearl baskets, they were in a race with Dustin & Kandice… and the women beat them despite shredding their clue!
At the end of the class, I gave the contestants and teams still in the game their grades. Adam, Brad and Nate each got a “C,” and they seemed okay with it. Candice and Ozzy each got a “B,” and they seemed happy with their grades. Meanwhile, Cristina, Jenny and Rebecca were delighted to get their first “A’s” during the competition! Stephannie, meanwhile, got a “D” for admitting that she was the weakest link during the challenge. She seemed to be accepting of the whole thing and said that next time she won’t say such stuff in front of everyone even if it was true.
Then I turned to the Amazing Race teams and gave them their grades. I had to give Dustin & Kandice a “D.” They seemed accepting of it. Erwin & Godwin got a “B+,” and they were delighted with their grade. Lyn & Karlyn got a “B-,” and they were fairly pleased with it. Peter was pretty mad when I gave him his “D,” but remembered my warning and kept his mouth shut while Sarah got her “A.” She was delighted to get it. Rob & Kimberly returned from Detention, with Rob getting a “D,” and Kimberly getting a “C-.” Neither one was pleased with their grades.
Finally, I was left with J.P. I told him, “Well, looks like the Aitu strategy to throw the second immunity challenge so you can get rid of Billy really hurt your tribe. However, you weren’t voted out because you threw the challenge. You were sent home because you failed to realize that Survivor isn’t about just being young and strong. You failed to get the numbers necessary to keep you around and you annoyed people by acting like the king of the island. Just not smart.” J.P. sighed and admitted that he now knows it takes more than being strong, big and physical and thinking that you’re mentally tough to win Survivor. Unfortunately, he didn’t realize it until he was blindsided.
Then I turned to Tom & Terry. I told them, “I’m sorry that you had so many problems rowing the sampan. If you didn’t have those problems, you would still be in the race and Dustin & Kandice would be out. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be. But at least you beat four other teams, and you didn’t lose because you really, really screwed up like you did last week.” Tom & Terry agreed with me, and they were proud of themselves for just not giving up even in the midst of their hardships.
Before he left, I gave J.P. his grade. It was an “F.” He sighed and said, “I knew it.” Well, at least he took both his elimination and his grade like a man. I then gave Tom & Terry their grade. It was a “C.” They took it well. It’s a shame that they had to go, but at least they also went out with class.
Will Cao Boi return to his annoying ways? Will Ozzy continue to impress me? Will Dustin & Kandice learn from their error this leg? Will Peter get a trip to Detention? And will Rob & Kimberly return to Detention? Find out next week!
