New BFFs? Kendra and Edwina
She added “We are going to do it as a team and I’m there and Kendra’s going to have to show everybody that she can do it better than a middle aged lady of ample proportions who has never been sporty in her life."
As they left, Jimmy commented: “They’re two strong opinionated women. Tough as old boots. Very very proud that it’s them two.”
And it wasn’t just Edwina feeling bright, because Kendra said that she was going to put their row behind them.
“We’re putting all the drama behind us," she said. "We’re moving forward and we’re going to work together. I feel stronger. I’ll try not to get on your nerves”
Edwina added :“One thing’s for sure. We’re not going to stop in the middle to start talking politics."
Of course we at home knew what was coming – and it could only have been Kendra in the gunging chair couldn’t it.
Kendra explained why she thought they’d been voted, telling And and Dec: “I think we’re both very strong women and I think we are ying and yang and I think it could help.”
“We’re very different people. I’m nearly 40 years older than she is” added Edwina.
Kendra had to sit on a dunk seat. She had to answer five rounds of questions, one round for each section of a long pipe laid out in front of her.
For every correct question, she earnt 20 seconds of time that Edwina could use to try and release the stars in that section of pipe. Every wrong answer would result in Kendra being dunked in foul smelling jungle liquid.
However, only the winning team from that day’s Two Tribes Challenge would get to enjoy the fruits of their labour.
But as if that wasn’t enough, we were pleased to see Edwina had a bad lot too, and was forced to crawl through spiders, cockroaches, meal worms, crickets, lizards, ants, yabbies, eels, mud crabs and snakes on the way.
Edwina’s pleased with herself
The questions were based on the relevant critters for that section of pipe. Kendra let slip that she had a lizard at home and used to have a snake, but still got some of the questions wrong so received several dunkings.
They eventually managed to retrieve six stars for camp. And so was born team ‘Kenwina’.
Kendra said afterwards: “We’re going back to camp with six stars and that’s all that matters. We are going to guard them with our lives. I didn’t go through all that s**t for the Wombats to take our stars. We’re keeping them. Edwina is hard core. She goes in. It’s balls to the wall.”
Returning to camp, Edwina shouted. “I have lost my virginity darling. I feel great. All the adrenalin is running. I’m pleased.”
But she later told camp: “There was a snake bit and all the questions were about snakes and it wasn’t until afterwards that Kendra announced that she didn’t actually know the difference between centimetres and metres and which was the larger one.”
“Hey, you can get to be 29 and a big reality TV star without knowing your measurements at all” she laughed.
