Cut Throat - Eric Banks

After the disaster that was the Gauntlet 3 final challenge, Eric needs to show his fellow teammates that he can pull his own weight. Having shed some pounds, he claims that he is in the best shape of his life and that he is ready to make it in this Challenge. He is always one of the Challengers people fear to go against in an elimination due to his size, but this time around his team may want to get rid of him quicker than before. [B][U] Previous Challenges:[/U][/B] Fresh Meat, Duel, Gauntlet 3, Duel 2

Has much redeeming to do. I believe in Big Easy.
To be fair, it was much of a fault of the veterans as it was Eric's on Gauntlet 3. They had many chances to send him to the Gauntlet but they were afraid. If they had sent him against Adam, Adam would've smoked him in ball brawl, any of the others probably would've beat him in the Puzzle. CT could've taken him in Force Field and the ankle tug of war. They were all cowards and paid the price.

Give it 100% or nothing at all.
About 6 months ago, Big Easy apparently was drinking at the bar in Amherst, MA where my younger brother was working at the time. He texted me that he was drinking full pitchers at the bar hahaha. What the hell he was going out there is anybody's guess. My brother also said that Big Easy was about 3-4 inches shorter than him, which would put him in the 5'11-6'0 range.
When he collapsed on G3 was it a heart attack? I remember G3 was my first challenge but I forget what happened.

[QUOTE=ClubSandwich;208054]Nothing that serious. Dehydration and heat stroke maybe.[/QUOTE] That's good. God forbid it was worse :sad2:
GO BIG EASY, love ya so much. Great kid, he is really sweet.
I think Eric is super sweet and good guy and I hope one day he will win the Challenge. No matter with team or alone, I just hope he will prove to hisself and to others that he is not jus Big Easy, he is a competitor.
[QUOTE=4realWORLD;208559]GO BIG EASY, love ya so much. Great kid, he is really sweet.[/QUOTE] I agree, he seems really sweet.
Frankly, I can't understand why so many people can't stand him. Just because of Gauntlet 3?
I like him, it's good to see a heavy-set person on the show. I hope he proves all these haters wrong.
I think that the blue team should start thinking about throwing him in at some point because if he makes it to the end he could be a HUGE liability. I mean remember what happend on the Gauntlet 3?
[QUOTE=4realWORLD;214535]Frankly, I can't understand why so many people can't stand him. Just because of Gauntlet 3?[/QUOTE]I don't like Eric because I find him boring and don't think he should have been cast on the show in the first place. It's going to sound harsh but I feel that the only reason he was cast on the original Fresh Meat was because of his weight and that's the only distinctive or somewhat interesting thing about him. When it comes to Eric all that is ever mentioned about him is his weight (him ruining the final of Gauntlet 3, his weight loss for this challenge, his fight with Laurel on the next episode), he brings absolutely nothing else to the challenges. Okay, so the dude weighs a lot and that is obviously going to cause problems when it comes to physical things.......we saw the same "story" on Road Rules: South Pacific with Donnel, it's nothing new or incredibly interesting. And it's frustrating cause he actually makes it far (and even sometimes to the finals) cause nobody wants to go against someone of his weight in the elimination rounds.

[spoiler]I think Eric goes into the gulag next week. I wonder who he will face.[/spoiler] I am only basing this spoiler off of the promo for this Wednesdays episode.

Remember in the little promos before the season started you can hear him saying, "I watched this man screw his whole team out of $30,000."
It sucks to be attacked like he was by Laurel, I felt really bad for him. For that and to see him out so soon, but that's the way it is. His past on this things will always be difficult for him to pass through.

Losing in a slapping contest must've felt horrible for him
