With the girls making it through the challenge easily and the boys fighting one another, poor Ty gets left behind and is the last person to finish. Is Ty the Hercules his team hoped for or just another disappointing let down?At Gulag deliberations, Ayiiia calls out Cara for crying during the challenge, though it's rookie Ayiiia who gets thrown into the Gulag.

Over at Blue Team deliberations, Katie volunteers to go in for a second time to prove herself to her team since Shauvon so easily handed the last Gulag to Katie. For the boys, the decision was not so easy, when the team reaches a deadlock between Ty and Big Easy with the prospect of TJ allowing Luke to pick any Blue Team guy, the Blue Team unifies and sends Big Easy into the Gulag again.With Camila feeling alienated from her team, she runs to the comforting yet conniving arms of Johnny, but when Brad gets wind of their relationship he runs to Queen Tori and the Red Team talk strategy. Can they trust Camila if she's in cahoots with Johnny?That night, the challengers walk into the Gulag to see a torture table set up, complete with two iron collars. TJ explains that the Gulag contestants will be strapped into the contraption and have a slap off to the death. Well not exactly to the death, but until someone cries owe.
