The Challenge is back and this time around, we’re headed to Thailand. A group of faces both old, new, and plastic have gotten together to create a crazy season full of frenemies. This season, the contestants must battle it out with the cast member they hate most for a whopping $300,000 grand prize. Can the teams survive The Jungle? Can they survive each other?
The teams of two look like this:
Ct and Wes
Diem and Aneesa
Zach and Trey
Jessica and Anastasia
Derek and Robb
Paula and Emily
Ty and Leroy
Naomi and Cooke
Preston and Knight
Jemmye and Camila
Tyrie and Dunbar
Sarah and Trishelle
Jordan and Marlon
Nany and Jonna
Theresa and Jasmine
Johnny and Frank
CT and Marlon get into it right away once the drinking begins. If I was swimming in the deep end of a pool, the last thing I’d want is for a beast like CT to choke me. I’m barely focusing on the fight because CT is in the pool and he has a shirt on. Seems like a crime.
CT is the most talked about cast member in the episode. It starts off nice and sweet as he and Diem have a few sweet moments together after her most recent health scare. I always thought they were cute together. Unfortunately, a twist in the game has CT flirting with every girl in the house. In this case, Anastasia is his prey and the other girls think she’s just an idiot for falling for it. That’s one way to get votes.
Among the other random moments of the episode, one thing sticks out the most. In this particular scene, it’s Tyrie’s ass. He’s passed out, drunk, and naked on the toilet. And he’s taking a poop. I have so many questions.
Game of Inches
Half of the team is suspended over water while partner number 2 has to jump into their arms. The team must hold on to each other for 15 seconds to move on to round 2.
Today is a Guys Challenge Day and the guys will be up for elimination tonight.
Paula and Emily. Zach and Trey.
Shockingly, Zach and Trey pull off the win and are safe from elimination. Dunbar and Tyrie were DQ’d first and are going in to The Jungle.
In a twist of events, after having the girls publicly cast their votes first, TJ reveals the guys get no say in the matter and from here on out, the girls will be voting the guys in and the guys will be voting the girls in.
This puts quite a hitch in CT’s public plan to throw Johnny in as soon as possible. All alliances are now screwed.
Derek and Robb are voted in to The Jungle and will be facing off against Dunbar and Tyrie.
The game is Last Chance. All four players run at each other and try to get past to ring a bell. It’s very reminiscent of past games. I really think they chose it just to watch CT bulldoze people and run them over.
Because Dunbar lacks the ability to ring a bell, his team loses the game.
Dunbar and Tyrie are eliminated.
