“Free Agents” is only Jordan’s second “Challenge,” but he’s already cemented himself as one of the most confident players in the game. Though his cockiness does rub some of his fellow cast members the wrong way, it’s worked to his benefit so far (his “Rivals II” performance was SOLID), yet on tonight’s episode, Jordan’s unrelenting need to win ultimately earned him a DQ and sent him right into The Draw. Should he have just taken the pass that TJ offered and spared himself the stress?
After TJ sent Frank home at the beginning of “Bar Crawl” because of his contagious virus, the host offered Jordan, Jasmine and Jonna — whose team was resultantly down one man — the chance to avoid The Draw if they sat out. Following Jordan’s lead, the trio decided to go for the win, anyway, and even though the girls held their weight, Jordan, who had to do a two-man job by himself, got them ousted from the mission by dropping a bar. In the “Challenge: Free-For-All” after show clip below, he shares his guilt.
“For me, the biggest thing was not failing but letting Jonna and Jas down, because they really did such a great job,” Jordan explains. “They had a free ride through this thing, and they said, ’Yeah, we’re gonna compete, we’re with you.'” Ultimately, Jordan, Jasmine and Jonna all successfully avoided pulling the Kill Card, but Jordan’s crush, Laurel, doesn’t let him off the hook.
“I think you could have done better, but it happens,” she comments. You can always count on Laurel for a dose of brutal honesty!
+ So, whaddya think — should Jordan have just accepted a pass to the next mission? Watch the video to hear him, Laurel and Devyn analyze what happened, then take the poll!
