We’ve finally made it to the point in the season where both punishments and rewards were given out during the Power of Veto competition. Becky and Clay were the only ones luckey enough to get a reward, while Jackie, Vanessa, and Shelli all have to deal with punishments for the next 24 hours.
While Becky won $5,000 and Clay won a trip to Ireland, Shelli, Jackie, and Vanessa earned themselves punishments. This year’s punishments are similar to last year’s, though they might be a little better or a little worse depending on how you want to look at it.
Both Jackie’s and Vanessa’s punishment is shared between the two of them. Jackie will be the knight, and Vanessa will be her squire. Vanessa has to be with Jackie 24/7 to constantly be cleaning Jackie’s shield. The only time Vanessa is allowed to stop is when Jackie is asleep, but even then there will be “Time to buff” signals that come on throughout the night. When Jackie uses the restroom, Vanessa has to wait outside and buff Jackie’s helmet. The only time that she doesn’t have to buff Jackie’s helmet is when Vanessa is taking a shower. The catch for Jackie is that she has to wear her helmet at all times, including when she is taking a shower and in the pool.
