The Veterans push Casey to excel her game.
The Rookies continue to struggle for a victory as the fear of entering the Gauntlet starts to cause trust issues.
The Veterans face the Rookies at the "Screw You" Challenge, an utterly exhausting and disorientating obstacle course, where the Veterans pull away with a second win. At the Rookie deliberation to pick who to send against Jillian in the Gauntlet, all hell breaks loose when Tori announces her suspicions of some of her fellow teammates having alliances with people on the Veteran team. Janelle then calls out Frank for having an alliance with the Vets while Derrick angrily states that he heard rumors that some people think he purposely threw the challenge that day. Johanna finally ends the fray when she points out that the team is just aggravated from losing and they should allow Veteran sparked rumors to cause rifts within their team. With the arguing finally abated, the Rookies decide to send in Angel and anxiously watch her and Jillian face off in a grueling battle at the "Ram It Home" Gauntlet. Evenly matched at first, Angel is pushed back on her heels then makes a furious rally. However, Jillian fights back and prevails, sending a teary eyed Angel home. The next day, the Rookies face the Veterans in the "Roped In" Challenge, where the teams race to complete an elaborate puzzle and the Veterans get their third consecutive win. Settling an old score from The Duel challenge, Johnny leads the Veteran deliberation and gleefully announces that they will be sending Tyler into the Gauntlet. Furious, Tyler scolds Johnny and the Veterans for their vengeful decision, while Janelle loses her patience with friend and fellow Key Westerner, Tyler, and yells at him to stop whining and take the decision like a man. The Rookies decide to vote in Frank, who sends a bitter Tyler home after a tiring struggle during the "Force Field" Gauntlet.
