After teams were assigned there tasks Bear told them to be ready to get wet and to prep there gear, then took them out on the water and had them jump in. The teams had to swim into shore, however Robin and Wilson were having a really hard time, and got left behind. The other teams didn’t realize they were missing a team until they got all the way into shore. Bear finally had to jump into the water and pull them in. When he got to the shore he got very upset, he said “never leave 2 people behind.” He said that if he hasn’t been there to get them there would have been 2 casualties.
Bear sends them on there way to hike up a hill and then down 3 waterfalls. Bear is watching them whooping and hollering as they finish the obstacle. He comments “they just don’t get it,” and there acting like this is a camping trip not a survival situation. It is at this point that Jeff jumps when they should have slid and gets hurt. He is able to go on but hurt his already injured knee.
The teams reach there food source, it is logs filled with grub worms most everyone eats but Alica is still weary and only eats 3, not enough. They move onto the camp site, and get all excited again, Bear calls them a “gaggle of school girls.” As they start to unload there gear Alicia breaks down because all her clothes are wet.
Bear comes to camp to talk to them and gives the teams a bit of a speech. “The reason people get into trouble in the wild is that go into these place with no awareness. They don’t respect where they are, they underestimate the terrane, the cold, the fatigue, the hunger. You have no awareness.” He then give them some fish row to eat. He explains that he is giving them things that look and taste bad but will keep you alive. Everyone eats.
Its now time for this weeks survival test. They have to make basher boats by lashing branches together and then wrapping there tarp around them and then paddle out into the water, the first 2 teams that go out sink quickly. The third group out is Alicia and Spencer. Followed by Chris and Jeff. It is clear that Alica is gassed and they are quickly passed by the guys. Chris and Jeff win the trip to the feast pit.
At the elimination Bear talks about how he is “after the person who is not merely strong, but strong with the survival spirit. The teams talk about bad attitudes during the day and the fact that they left people behind. Bear says this week he is making his decision based on the fact that “If my plane goes down who is the one team I want beside me.” Bear then chose a team to go home, you will have to watch to see who.
