The Project: Guatemala recap – "Bus Trouble"
Mia, Blair and Betheny were Ray’s most improved crew members at the end of the last week’s episode, so they began the third episode in Antigua, where they got to check out a chocolate factory and enjoy some Burger King…luxury that may have gotten to Mia and Betheny.
In the hopes of motivating the team to work hard, Ray organized a soccer game for all the coworkers. Betheny decided to write on out a list of Guatemalan grievances on the Project Somos tent. Ray then gives them an exercise to write out their goals about who they would like to be when the project ends.
This week’s adventure challenge brought the group to Lake Atilan where they competed in a three-part relay race where they learned how to balance a basket on their head, paddle out to get a crab trap and then race to the streets in a Tuk Tuk. Ray stated that they were all winners and they all got to celebrate with some alcohol. Mia had way too much to drink and turned into a monster during the bus ride home. The bus had to stop and Mia left…for real this time. Ray blamed Mia’s exit on the entire group.
Most Spoiled: Dallas. The day-drinking during the build was not cool. Also not cool for giving Greg from Project Somos attitude.
Most Improved: Kalin. He was usually one of the first people to be ready for the build each morning and re-introduced the whiteboard to help the others get their act together.
Devil’s Advocate: It was hard to relate to anyone this week. You’d think after three weeks they’d start taking the volunteer work seriously.
Fight of the Week: Greg vs. Dallas – Greg has had enough and we don’t blame him.
