"OMG! They've killed Coral!"
Did I hear the preview correctly? Coral stops breathing? I don't think it's too much of a spoiler to remind everyone that she's competing in the next Challenge - The Inferno - so she probably survives here. Hmmm, maybe the smokers in the group should have been targeted.

Still, this next episode is gonna be a good one! Love to see Jon and Mary-Ellis make the DAWS suffer. It does a body good.

But why couldn't it be Veronica.

Just me or was the MIZ just a bit out of control? Egads! Even ADDam redeemed himself a bit by carrying Sarah up the mountain. Double edged sword for Sarah. If RR loses, she'll take the blame. If they win, it was in spite of her holding them back.

But ask her if she cares with, what, 30K in her pocket.

Hate to say it, but DH and I were laughing our heads off watching this episode. Here are these young kids huffing and puffing up the hill. It's an excellent example to show kids why they shouldn't start smoking.

Bet they wish they hadn't sent Theo to the gauntlet. They would have killed RR in the finale if they would have kept him and let Coral go.

You couldn't kill Coral with a baseball bat. On the other hand, she doesn't seem to run in high altitudes very well.


Trust me, she ain't dead. Otherwise they'd have a Very Very Maudlin But Special Season Finale.

How is THAT for the longest subject in history?

According to Melissa's website, Coral was bitten by a spider and that is the cause of her sickness. I guess she is allergic to spiders, but with all things said and done, still can't see her doing THAT much better without the spider bite.

Edited because I can't spell.

What confuses me about this entrie show is that you wanted to win the Gauntlet and have more people on your team, but having extra people is hurting the RR's in the final mission.

Is there a part to the final mission that could benefit having more people? I mean, they only got two shovels in the digging part.

I now understand why they all talk about training like mad in their journals.

That is some serious work. Of course, it's not going to be a cakewalk for 150Gs+.

6. "RE: OMG! They've killed Coral!"
Well, it takes a lot of backs to lug Coral up the hill to die. I would want fewer people so the $ would be split fewer ways. But then, I'm a money grubbing realist and not a spiritual questor like these kids (smirk).

7. "RE: OMG! They've killed Coral!"
Steen, I thought the same thing for a good part of this show. Then I started thinking that the best strategy was to win the missions and then send someone in to lose the Gauntlet - just don't lose too many and definitely not your more physical players. Plus, fewer people to divide the prize amongst. Sure, I loved the whole Sarah triumphs dramatic arc of the show but, honestly, Adam's probably right.

Not sure if these players ever got it. If any did, it's a good bet they kept their motivation quiet. Kinda see Adam's point now. RR less Sarah, Cara and maybe Veronica is probably unbeatable.

Here's a rundown of the Gold Rush mission tasks. Doesn't seem that more people is an advantage anywhere?

1. 1.3 mile uphill trek
2. Gold Block - the 12-foot wall
3. Cash Crawl - under the cargo net
4. Gold Digger - 2 shovels and a lock box
5. Dough-Nut - Climb thru a suspended tire
6. Loop the Loot - get the puzzle piece from the pond
7. Goldie-Locks - the Saturns!
8. Gold Bar - the same puzzle challenge used in the Gauntlets
9. The race to the finish line

After reading MElissa's entry about Coral's spider bite, I have a bit more sympathy for her. Still, ain't karma a wonderful thing?

8. "RE: OMG! They've killed Coral!"
You know what else had me baffled... if Coral stopped breathing, don't you think her team might have been made aware of the whole situation...perhaps then they might have shown more compassion for her situation and seeing that there was more than a competition at stake? I thought it was interesting that no one really seemed to let the real worlders in on Corals situation after the competition ended. Granted they would have had better odds with Theo instead of Coral. I think it's only a matter of time before someone dies on a reality show...then what? Will it put a halt, to what are these, "Reality TV Game shows"?

I too was disturbed that they didn't let the team in on what had happened. At least at the end of the race. You're right though, one day it's going to go to far and someone is going to die. But I'm sure they figure that too would make for great TV.

12. "RE: OMG! They've killed Coral!"
It was a great prophetic movie (starring William Holden and Faye Dunaway - Peter Finch won Best Actor oscar posthumously) about making network shows, particularly "reality" shows.
There was a character who "channeled the popular rage" - Howard Beale. He was supposed to be a news anchor but had a nervous breakdown on camera -- he told everyone to stick their heads out the window and yell, "I'm Mad As Hell And I'm Not Going to Take it Anymore!" Millions complied, the nation had a sort of "wave" phenomenon of people yelling this out city windows and the ratings were tremendous, so the network created a show around Howard. Til the day he started truth-telling about advertisers and network propoganda, at which point the network executives hired hitmen and had him gunned down, on camera, for a final ratings sweep.

It's a great flick with lots of relevance to us Reality fans and, even though I've just totally ruined the ending, I heartily recommend it.

Thanks Ginger, after reading your description it sounded very failiar to me but I'm not sure. I think I saw it back before I was a Reality junkie and probably would not have seen it in the same light as I would now. I think that since it is raining today, I may run out and rent it again. I may appreciate it a lot more this time.

Okay people, yes it too looked scary to me at first, but as a paramedic I have some questions. Now I have only seen the episode once so I'll do my best from memory.
First of all, she got bit on the bottom of her foot? This happened when she put her shoe on? Seems like an awful slow onset of symptoms.
Second, an allergic reaction, or anaphylaxis, is usually accompanied by a few signs and symptoms. Urticaria, or hives. Difficulty breathing, usually with wheezing. Tightness in the throat or chest. Swelling, usually at the site of injury and also mouth,respiratory tract.Dizzyness and nausea.

Now here is the thing. The nausea is usually the result of a drop in blood pressure, which usually happens after a marked increase in pulse rate. At the point that coral was dropping from our world her BP was something like 150 over 70. (I can't remember for sure) Now I may have miss heard, and editing can do a lot to change the way things look, but this to me sure did not look like an acute anaphylactic reaction. She did not seem to show any of the signs or symptoms. The one thing she did show was numbness and tingling in her extremities which is a classic sign of hyperventilation, usually brought about by a stressfull situation. Could it be that all the trash she talked during the previous episodes caught up with her, made her breath real hard and fast, and then she folded? As an old coach once told me, Quiters never win and winners never quit. I wonder?

THANK YOU. I thought this seemed "funny" too (am allergic to bees myself). My daughter looked at me like I was cruel and deeply insensitive to even raise doubt about it being an allergic reaction.

16. "RE: OMG! They've killed Coral!"
Of course, I have no way of knowing the extent of Coral's condition out there but I think Coral's just putting a bit of spin on the whole situation. I mean, could her performance have been any more pathetic? She smokes like a chimney. She's gonna cost her team big money after talking all that sh!t about how she's been kicking ass. She's a total drama queen. She knows she's allergic to spiders but goes out in the woods without an Epi-pen? I think her teammates knew about the spider story but weren't buying it either.

Whatever. On to The Inferno!
