Cutthroat: Episode #3 (Summary)


In the mean time, summaries for Episode #1 and Episode #2 are available.

Shauvon Quits

Shauvon quits, and the Blue Team tries to talk her out of it. I think the Blue Team is just pissed off to have Katie back.

Stupid move, on her part, IMO. Yeah, it sucks that your team doesn't want you around, but you're here for yourself, to win money.

Sore Loser

Vinny is a sore loser.

Ty's a Creep

*shudders* all I have to say is UGH.

Dan attempts damage-control

Dan attempts to mediate the situation, and it's not working. Shauvon is a crazy drunk and keeps trying to "help" by bringing up her situation with Vinny. She is too drunk to realize she is only making it worse by being so obliviously self-involved. Dan calls her out, which is good. But Laurel and Eric do not resolve their problems because Laurel is too drunk. This whole house really is like a dysfunctional family.

Laurel vs. Eric (Unedited)

Ok, the unedited version is somewhat different than the edited version we see here, which makes it look like Eric just stood there all hurt and didn't fight back while Laurel just kept going. But here we see Eric did fight back and called her names, too, which escalated the argument and is probably the reason Laurel kept going. Laurel did appear to start the argument, though, so Eric was on the defensive.

TJ Lavin's in a Coma

According to TMZ:

Lavin was competing in a Dew Tour event in Las Vegas -- when he hit a dirt ramp, lost control, and slammed down onto the ground. Friends and crew workers immediately rushed to Lavin's side, but he didn't appear to be moving.

Lavin was rushed to nearby University Medical Center hospital ... where he was placed into a medically induced coma.

We're told Lavin is also experiencing brain swelling and is listed in critical condition.

UPDATE: A rep for MTV tells us, “Our thoughts are with TJ. He is an important part of MTV’s extended family and we’re all praying for him."

As for Lavin's condition, a rep for the Dew Tour tells us, "he is in the intensive care unit and is currently stabilized."

Cutthroat: Episode #3 (Sneak Peak)

I must say, her behavior is gross...Laurel, I don't know if you were made fun of a lot as a kid, so you have this complex where you're still re-living middle-school days 10 years later, or what your deal is, but you have issues. Mentally, you are stuck in middle-school.

I felt so bad for him when he's like, "We came here to hang out..." he seemed so confused.

If there's more to the story, I'd like to hear your side of it, but it doesn't seem like it. As Eric said, you don't even know him, so I can't imagine there's much history between the 2 of you.

Laurel has posted an apology on Vevmo that reads:

Hi. I have read a few comments on here. I understand where you guys are coming from. I get the anger. I deserve this backlash. I don't even know what next weeks episode will be like, but it is probably disgusting. I'm so horrified by my behavior and I just can not believe I would even act like that. I want to apologize to all of you who watch the show and talk about the show on here. Fan of me or not, that is not for me to decide. I respect everyone's opinion and I am not happy that this happened, behavior like that that is just plain disgusting. ******* disgusting.

I hope that none of you are ever subjected, were ever subjected or will ever be subjected to someone acting like that. I want to thank anyone out there who has been able to forgive me - I am working on forgiving myself. What I do know is that this is a real moment in the timeline of my life. I did those things. I am ABSOLUTELY not proud of it. I was ashamed of that behavior and I apologized to Eric the next day. He did not accept my apology. I understand why. I'm sorry Eric - again. I'm sorry to all of you who have to watch it. And I hope that no one sets that as an example of how to be or how to act. It is NOT RIGHT!!!!

I can only move forward from here. There is no going back. To be honest, the reason that I didn't want to do real world when I made it to the finals is because I thought that something like this would come out in me because I am somewhat aware of who I am and I know that I had the ability to do something like that. Well, you can not hide from who you are forever. I will own up to everything I said. I will continue to say it is wrong, and that I hope no one will ever repeat or act like I did then in Prague. And I understand all of you who are angry. I am so sorry to have even put this on your television screen. I'm sorry.

Thank you for even reading,

Cutthroat Confessional #2 (Aftershow)

Cutthroat: Episode #2 (Summary)

Chet and Mandi engage in harmless flirting. Mandi confesses she has a crush on Chet, even though he's not normally her type.

Laurel has a lot of built-up anger at her from Fresh Meat 2, and says, "Chet and Mandi go upstairs and close the door. What do you think's gonna happen when you send an S-L-U-T up into the room together with a guy?"

And yes, she actually spells out S-L-U-T, possibly trying to be mindful of younger viewers.

In any case, she starts getting on Mandi's case about it, and mimics the noises/things she heard while they were in the bathroom. Mandi is just like, "What is your problem?"

Chet sees what's going on and gets involved and says, "We have an angry amongst us, her name is Laurel, you have the floor, what is your problem?"
Laurel tells him she's not lashing out at him.
"Yes you are," Chet argues. "And you're lashing out at Mandi." He then says he's getting dumber just by looking at her, and that she's lashing out at people who are not even trying to inflict harm upon her.
Laurel just rolls her eyes and says, "OK, what I have to say has already been said."

Cut to the confessional, where Mandi says Chet is just "so sweet" and he's the only guy on the Red Team she feels she can trust.

Cut to her and him cuddling in bed together, where she tells him she likes him, and he says, "I like you, too."

The next day is Challenge Day #2, where the teams have to hang from ropes and pass around these things known as Stiens. Whoever has the fastest time, wins.

The Red Team goes first and as a result, have no idea what they're doing.

Since the Grey Team has 2 extra players, Shauvon and Abram both decide to sit out. Abram decides to be the coach, which turns out to be a complete disaster. He goes crazy and sounds like one of those over-zealous, crazy football coaches, or as Camila put it, like he's the chief of the army. haha. I actually think Camila put it better. "If you make me look like an asshole, I'll kick every one of your fucking asses, I swear to God!" he roars. Oh my god, it really is like they're in the military.

Needless to say, the Grey Team loses.

The Blue Team wins.

Now it's deliberation time, where both the Grey Team and Red Team will be voting for 1 male and 1 female from their team to go into The Gulag.

The majority of the Red Team votes for Mandi, including Chet (so much for trusting him) to prove to his team that he is not "emotionally attached" (good god Chet, YOU KISSED HER. Mormons are RIDICULOUS!!). They also vote in Brandon, for the second time, and he is not happy about it.

The Grey Team votes for JD because he's a rookie and Cara-Maria, who takes it personally and says, "So I had a bad challenge, give me a break." Um, there are no breaks when there's $20,000 on the line, honey, especially this early in the game and you have yet to prove yourself.

Mandi hears that Chet voted for her and confronts him. He denies it (LIAR).

Abram predicts that Cara-Maria will win this one, and indeed, she does, as does Brandon, for the second time. He is still a bit sour at his team for voting him in twice, though and wonders if this is going to continue througout the entire game. My guess is YES, because he is a rookie, but we shall see...

All I said was that her marriage was a joke!

Johnny Bananas can't understand why Aiiya thinks he's a scumbag. hahah. I like Johnny, I think he's well-meaning and funny sometimes, but he is incredibly self-absorbed.

He hit a fucking girl!

Shauvon gets upset after Vinny throws her to the ground, after she hit him in the back with a chain.

Cutthroat Confessional #1 (Aftershow)

You were backing Teresa!

Paula flips out on Mandi because she thinks that when Teresa attacked Camila, Mandi backed Teresa. Mandi denies this and defends herself.

I get the feeling Paula might win this 1. Just a hunch. I kind of hope she does, because the last few challenges, she's made a total ass out of herself!

Mean Girls

According to Teresa, Katie and others, "Camila is a fucking klepto!"

Paranoid Paula

Paula is on her 7th challenge, has yet to win, and is understandably paranoid about her so-called "alliances" in this game, because they've all screwed her over at some point. Here in these 2 clips, we see Melinda and Dunbar try to reassure her, to no avail.

We both like the same girls

Apparently, Abe's comment didn't sit well with Jen. Is she religious or something? I don't see why else she'd be so embarrassed about hooking up with Rachel. I mean, when you hook up with her in front of the entire damn country, you'd think you'd be a little more open about it, and a little less defensive. It's not like anyone even really cares, people think it's hott.

Cutthroat: Episode #1 (Summary)
It begins in the Czeck Republic, with Tyler in the confessional, saying that when they 1st arrived, they were all super-tired, having been on a plane for 30 hours, but "the challenge is starting RIGHT NOW."
Brad says they'll be running an unknown distance, to an unknown place.
Cut to everyone running in the dark, in what looks very cold, in a race to their destination.
Johnny Bananas says it sucks, he feels like he can't breathe and he's gasping for air.
Paula says it's awful and it sucks and it's in the dark.
The cast finally arrives at their destination, which is called The Gulag, where they are welcomed by show host, TJ Lavin. TJ announces that the 3 people who finished last in the race, (Emily, Shauvon and Camila) will be the Team Captains for the 3 teams (Blue, Grey and Red), who get to pick from the remaining cast members who they want to be on their team. 

(captain of the Red Team), who states that she's here to win, loves meeting new people and is not worried what anyone here thinks of her, gets 1st pick and goes with Dunbar, followed by Tori, Brad, Paula, Tyler, Melinda, Chet, Mandi and Brandon.

Shauvon (captain of the Grey Team), who looks like she's lost a few pounds since The Ruins, goes next and picks Vinnie, followed by Laurel, Abram, Sarah, Dan, Aiyya, Luke, Cara and JD.

Emily (captain of the Blue Team) gets 3rd pick, chooses Johnny 1st, followed by Jen, Derek K, Emily, Ty, Teresa, Derek, Katie and Eric.

TJ explains that the 3 teams will be competing against each other, and the team that wins each challenge will recieve $20,000 in their bank account, which, over the first 9 challenges will equal $180,000. The only way to get paid is to make it to the end of the game, obviously. Then, for the final challenge, the remaining players on each team will be competing for the grand prize of $120,000. Meaning the total being given away is $300,000.

Upon completing each mission, everyone on the winning team is safe from elimination, but the losing teams are both up for elimination, where 1 guy and 1 girl from each team must be nominated to go up against each other in The Gulag. Loser goes home, obviously.

In the Confessionals:

Dunbar says it's his 4th challenge and he's flattered that he's the 1st person picked.
Laurel recalls how the girls were mean to her on the last challenge, and predicts they will still be threatened by her.
Tori & Brad announce they got married. Brad shows off his ring, Tori says she can't picture life without him.
Sarah recalls being on a team with Shauvon before, and crossed her fingers, hoping Shauvon would not pick her this time, but she did.
Ty says one of the best things about being here is Emily.
Emily states she loves Ty but there will be no more hooking up with him.
Melinda says she and Danny are going through a divorce.
Derek says he thinks he is going to be underestimated because he's gay, new and a lot smaller than most of the guys.
Katie (who may not be much of a competitor, but she looks pretty damn good for 30-year-old chain-smoker, she hasn't aged at all) says she's studying Criminal Law and wants to be a behavioral profiler, because being on these challenges has made her good at predicating what people are going to do, so she might as well get paid for it.
Eric (whose face looks super-red) says he's lost about 30 pounds and doesn't feel like he has anything to prove to anyone.

The cast arrives at the house, which is a gorgeous castle. The cast marvels at it.

Abram, who grew his hair out, reveals that he's just published his first children's book, and that he's single and enjoying it.
Tyler says, "I've always considered myself a queen of some sort, and I finally have a palace to live in." hahah. WHATEVER Tyler.
Jen reveals that it's her 5th challenge, she has yet to win one, and she's here for the money. (well duh, thanks for sharing Jen).
Paula jokingly confirms that this is her 7th challenge, and goes on to explain that losing 6 times "really changes your priorities. It's not all about being the strongest person, the most loyal, the most honest,. It's about being the most soulless, caniving, cutthroat person that you can be. I will do whatever it takes, to whomever it takes, to get to the final and win the big prize."
Johnny and Emily are briefly shown having a discussion about their team. Johnny tells her they have a lot of people to get rid of, and that's a good thing.
In the confessional, Johnny says he thinks his team looks to him as a leader, which is a position he thrives on.
Dan strips down to his birthday suit in the middle of the big yard and says that since he doesn't drink anymore (he's in recovery) he feels a need to do something to be in a festive mood, and so he runs around the yard, naked.

Meanwhile, everyone is partying, drinking, laughing and having a good time.

Katie says that being loud and mouthy is just who she is, and although she doesn't see herself getting into it with anyone on the challenge, the game just started.

Meanwhile, according to Teresa, "The Blue Team is stacked. We have the experience, we have the loudmouths, we have the athletes. We have an A-Squad."

Dunbar is also confident in his team and says they are "hands down, the best."

Meanwhile, Cara-Marie and Abram hit it off and start painting and scratching each other.
Abram says he likes Cara-Marie.
Cara-Marie says, "It's kind of fun to play with Abram because he is just as screwed up as I am, maybe worse. The fact that he's so strange really intrigues me."
GOT IT - the 2 weirdos have found each other, it's a match made in heaven. haha. I actually don't think Cara-Marie is all that weird, personality-wise. Sexually, she may be into some strange shit, like BDSM and all that, but she's not strange in the way she communicates and interacts with people. Abram definitely is, though. In fact, I'd almost say the 2 are opposites. On paper, Abram looks normal, he dresses normal, cuts his hair normal, he looks VERY mainstream, but his personality is very eccentric. Whereas Cara-Marie's style is is anything BUT mainstream, it's very goth and totally stands out, but her personality is not weird at all. Despite his eccentricities, however, Abram seems like a nice person, and a natural leader, which is probably why women find him attractive. He's one of my favorites, actually.

Meanwhile, Laurel and Shauvon get in a drunken tiff when Laurel wants to wrestle and Shauvon declines. The two start talking shit, a few Fuck-you's are exchanged. 10 minutes later, neither can really remember what happened or why it started and go to bed.

JD notes that there are definitely a lot of strong personalities on his team, which could lead to a lot of problems.

The next day, the cast all arrives in Progue for their first mission of the Challange, which is called Gas Problems. Basically, the 3 teams will race to complete a puzzle, but in order to find the layout to do the puzzle correctly, they have to get the code to unlock the lock-box which has the map in it. In order to get that code, they have to go into a tear-gas chamber, which is hard because it messes with your breathing and your eyes.

Chaos ensues on both the Red Team and the Blue Team, as people sturggle to breathe, struggle with the lock-boxes and struggle to listen to each other, but Abram steps up for the Grey Team and leads them to victory and ensuring their safety from the next elimination.

(These missions look really fun, by the way, I'd LOVE to do something like this for $$$).

Back at the house, the Grey Team is exempt from elimination and will be served a lovely dinner, while the Blue Team and Red Team sit around the living room, deliberating on who to vote into The Gulag to be possibly eliminated.

TJ announces a surprise twist - the votes will be private. Each person will go down to the basement by themselves and vote 1 girl and 1 guy to The Gulag.

Production aired some of the votes, and spared others.
Chet votes for Brandon and Camila.
Camila votes for Brandon and Mandi.
Brandon votes for Chet.
Melinda votes for Dunbar.
Derek (Cancun) votes for Emily and Ty.
Emilee votes for Katie and Ty. 
Eric votes for Derek (Cancun)
Katie votes for Emily (Cancun) and Derek (Cancun)

After everyone's done voting, TJ announces that the people with the most votes are Emilee (Cancun) and Derek (Cancun) from the Blue Team, Camila and Brandon from the Red Team.

Camila says it's not a surprise to her, because they don't know her, she doesn't know them and this is a game.
Jen says rookies always get tossed in first.
Emilee says, "I think people will underestimate me, but at the end of the day, that's good for me and bad for them." yeah, ok, enough with puffing your chest out. Don't tell us what you got, SHOW US.
Brandon says he feels like a Rookie because he has to go in and prove himself, which is fine with him.
Derek says he's just trying to stay calm and not stress out about this. He talks to JD about it, who says, "It is what it is, you know? Come back and be stronger."
"Hopefully and NOT go back again!" Derek says with a laugh. The two lift their cups of wine and toast. Cheers.

The rest of the house starts partying.

Derek K says that after they find out whose going into The Gulag, the majority are relieved because they're safe, and wanna relax and have some fun while they still can.

Johnny proposes a toast, "We're all in this for the same thing: to have fun, to make money and to make love!" Everyone cheers.

Everyone is having a ball, drinking, partying, laughing and cheering, when all of a sudden, we hear Camila scream "I didn't find the pants! Like why the fuck do I need to steal extra-large sweatpants?"
"We think you're a goddamned klepto!" Teresa shot back. She has 2 other girls backing her, Katie and 1 other girl, who are laughing. I like Katie, but she seems to instigate drama, and thrive on it, so long as you don't involve her.

Camila handles herself well, denying the accusations that she stole Jen's hat and Ty's sweatpants. 

Teresa confesses they're doing this on purpose. "I wanna get Camila a little nervous," she admits, "it's what you do in a challenge. You're not here to make friends." Yeah, ok Teresa. Learn your place, honey, this is your SECOND challenge, you might as well be a rookie as far as I'm concerned. You're certainly waaaayyy too new to be calling the shots and declaring "what you DO on a challenge." You don't have a clue.

I personally think Teresa just wants camera time. On her 1st challenge (Fresh Meat 2) she tries to create a love-triangle between Wes and Kenny. Now, she tries to call out Camila for something she didn't do, in a screaming match, and gets in her face, right as the cameras come. Sooo transparent.

Camila eventually flips them off and goes into her room and starts crying. Tori comforts her by reassuring her that they're doing this on purpose because she's new, and it's nothing to worry about. "They look stupid, you don't," Tori promises.

"It's kind of like a mean-sorority initiation," says Melinda. "Hopefully, she shows the Red Team exactly what she's made of."

I think Tori just really likes Camila for picking her and Brad on the same team. hahah. just kidding. I do like Tori, though, she's classy, unlike a lot of the girls on this show.

The next day is Gulag Day and the guys (Derek vs. Brandon) are up 1st.

"I'm ampted up and ready to go," says Derek. "This is my 1st challenge, unfortunately, I have to be the 1st person to go into the 1st Gulag, so no one knows what's gonna be going on but I have my team backing me up 100%..."

"I feel pretty confident, it looks like it's gonna be physical," says Brandon. "But, then again, I can't underestimate my opponent. Gay, straight, black, white, blue, green, I don't care. My only objective is that he has something that I need and I need to get it from him, get it from him fast and get back on that bus, back to the house." 

It's a good battle, but Derek eventually tires out and Brandon wins, eliminating Derek (Cancun).

For the female Gulag, Camila wins, much to Teresa's disappointment, sending Emily home.
