Thursday’s new Redneck Island was full of unexpected (and sometimes unfortunate) surprises. To start, Margaret’s partner Dustin packed up and left with no warning, leaving Margaret partner-less heading into the second challenge. Luckily for Margaret, Steve Austin took pity on her and brought back the freshly-eliminated Cowboy to be her partner, creating the first all-veteran team.
Fresh off the crazy challenge “Floaters,” Cody and Connar’s backyard horseplay led to Connar breaking her ankle. Taking pity on Connar’s partner Riley, challenge-winners Josh and Tuff sent Connar and Riley into the pit against challenge-losers Becky and Caleb. Connar was deemed unfit for competition, so she was sent packing. Riley made easy work of defeating Caleb, and Becky and Riley became the second all-veteran team of the season.
But what went on that you didn’t see? We’ve got the inside scoop.
For starters, Connar wasn’t planning to let a little broken ankle keep her from competing in the Pit, despite warnings from Nicole and Tuff. Take a look at what Tuff described as “the most irrational s*** I’ve ever seen”:
Before Josh and Tuff even made their choice to send Riley and Connar in, Caleb (who was already Pit-bound) was asked who he wanted to compete against. Thinking only of his own odds, Caleb chose Dutch, which didn’t go over well with Dutch’s partner, Nicole.
