In tonight’s episode of Power Couple SA, Juran Banfield and Juanita de Andrade from Port Elizabeth were the first couple to be eliminated by their fellow contestants in the villa. The pair, who were up against Emile and Razia Samson from Johannesburg, were voted off unanimously by the remaining seven couples. They were the only unmarried couple in the series.

After finding themselves at the bottom of the money ladder in last week’s episode, Juran and Juanita had to win tonight’s Couples Challenge in order to stay out of the running for elimination. Host Ryan O’Connor introduced the challenge, aptly named “The Claw” to each couple one at a time. The Claw, based on the classic arcade game, required the girls to be harnessed to a moveable frame which was controlled by their partners. The guys had to manoeuvre their partners through a large see through box filled with hundreds of stuffed toys in order to find one small teddy bear, known affectionately as Power Teddy, and drop it into a chute at the end of the room. The couple with the fastest time would win, and gain an extra R25 000.00 to their total, while the couple with the slowest time would automatically be up for elimination, along with the couple with the least amount of money in their electronic wallet.

Juran and Juanita’s time, while not the slowest, was beaten by Capetonians PJ and Marzanne, which meant that they were to find themselves in the elimination hot seats later that day. Emile and Razia, the strongest contenders from last week with the most amount of money in their kitty had the slowest time, and as such, in a shock twist, found themselves up against Juran and Juanita.

When it came to the votes, a few of the couples were torn between voting out of loyalty and friendship versus voting out of merit, but ultimately Juran and Juanita garnered no votes to keep them in the villa. “If anyone is going to win this game, it’s Emile and Razia,” Juran conceded once the votes were in. A tearful Juanita added, “…if it’s any consolation, it’s a very good couple to have lost against, because Emile and Razia are the best.”
