Only on The challenge a stupid argument over frozen food can turn into something serious drama.
Wednesday’s episode brought one of the most dangerous stunts yet, without posting one, but thaw challengers directly to the hospital. But it was not the only fireworks we could see in Double agentsthird episode.
Originating from a small spit between CT and Kaycee, Josh and Devin get into it after a simple “Older brother stinks! “Mockery leads to a bursting pack from Josh. (BB19 live feeders, we have not suffered enough?) While the drama did not become physical, it is did influence this week’s house vote and send two veteran friends into an elimination that looked as exhausting as Josh’s childish outburst felt. Let’s break it all down.
After last week’s shocking team switcheroo, Kyle tells us he feels betrayed by Fessy’s alliance. (Hold up: Kyle, you lied about your voice, guy, but Okay, go off.) He now plans to join CT, Wes and Devin, aka the challengers “with their backs to the wall.”
Fessy lets Kyle and some others in on the fact that the “secret ballot” is not that secret after all. Kyle comes clean about his lie, but then tells Wes that the whole “stupid brigade” was trying to turn the tide on him. (When did Young Bucks get a new nickname? Did I sleep on it ?!) Wes is understandably bummed out; he thought the YBs were his friends. Fighting a battle where Kyle calls Fes ap-ya gazillion times, but this heat is not Fessys’ only problem. Cory expresses his disappointment that Fessy told a huge secret to the house before telling his own allies. It only took three episodes for this season to get deliciously twisted.
CHALLENGE ACTIVATED | In “Road Kill”, two teams face a semi-truck while driving 50 mph. Each duo has to throw the other team out of the side (in net, of course), but for the first time in Challenge story, the stunt will be finished without seler. Here are the highlights:
* Devin / Nicole vs. Kam / Kyle ends in a draw with a staggered shoulder to Nicole.
* Wes / Natalie defeats Nany / Josh even though all four players land in the net.
* Mechie / Liv vs. Tori / Cory ends in another shoulder injury, this time for beginner Liv.
* Big dogs CT and Fessy go head-to-head, but their fights unfortunately go out.
Leroy and Kaycee eventually end up with W for their fight against Amber M. and Nelson.
Back in the house, the group realizes that all of Nicole’s things are gone; she is sent home because of her injury, leaving Devin a lone soldier. Liv, however, returns but awaits a radiology report.
And this is where what may be the dumbest fight in Challenge the story takes place. It’s clear that the editors agree because Whitney Houston’s “So Emotional” is falling, while Josh is raging and raging as one – wait for it – meatballs! Move on!
DELIVERY | Devin is on the defensive thanks to all the drama, but Wes tells him he wants Tori and Cory nominated. At the house meeting, the group has no idea if it’s a guy’s or girl’s elimination day because Nicole’s DQ may have pushed the schedule up. Devin is the first to fire a shot and tells the group that he shot for Tori and Cory, causing Josh to speak out against Devin. The House votes, and when Leroy and Kaycee get the results, Devin is actually the compromised agent.
THE CRATER | Leroy and Kaycee make a big move with their big decision and twice choose champ Wes to meet his friend. In “Snapping Point”, the opponents are tied together by a rope. They must run through a set of positions and detonate their station at the end of the course. Wes begins to dig a hole in the sand to serve as an anchor for his weight. It’s a stalemate for a while, with both players struggling to pull the other back. Devin then not only takes the lead, but seals the deal. He wins the match and the golden skull and sends Wes on his way.
Devin is now qualified to run the final, but he must first choose a new partner. He chooses Tori (over Natalie? Really!?) leaves Survivor winner for Cory. “Getting a gold skull probably puts a mark on my back, but guess what? I’ve had a goal on my back throughout this game … Now I have a golden skull in the middle of the goal. Now watch me go to work, ”says Devin.
Then the game starts.
