Marlon predicted he and his athletic teammate Jordan would be a top three team on “Rivals II,” and so far, it looks like he could be right. Tonight, after finishing strong in other competitions, the pair of rookies officially earned their first “Challenge” blue ribbon, a cool $1,000 and the advantage of selecting the order in the next mission. “These rookies are coming at us pretty hard,” CT admitted in an interview after TJ announced the “Portland” housemates had won. “I think it’s time everyone stopped sleeping on them.” If the powerhouse vet is taking notice, you know these newbies are a force to be reckoned with.
There’s no question that Marlon and Jordan are physically sound. From the get-go, they’ve been performing toward the top of the pack. But as their former roommates Anastasia and Jessica proved, it only takes one slip-up to get sent into The Jungle, and from there, it’s a crap shoot. Plus, nobody’s looking out for the newcomers, and with Sarah — Jordan’s former fling — gone, there’s one fewer female team that’s got Jorlon’s back.
Whaddya think — will this season’s male rookie team make it through to the end, or will their luck run out if and when their winning ways cease? Take our poll, and sound off in the comments!
