The challenges are getting down to the wire! Last night found out which 3 males will be competing in the final and who will fall in love before the final. Also, Jemmye said almost nothing on this episode.
1. Seizing The Diem
CT and Diem know that there is an attraction between each other, but Diem is reluctant to act on it. One night, while at the club, Diem feels a force drawing her to CT. Sparks fly, and they share a kiss. But back at the house, Diem goes straight to bed (CT’s bed that is) and passes out. While these two are feeling frisky again, the house takes notices. Other cast members tease the two and some are surprised that Diem is going down this path again.
2. Deja Challenge
This week’s challenge was named Rampage and looked very familiar to the T-Bone Jungle from Rivals 1. Except this time there was a 3 minute time limit for the teams to transport 20 balls. As it turns out, this was a trickier challenge than anticipated. Very few people chose to tackle their opponents, although Preston did try to tackle CT. In the end, Emily and Paula won for the girls (AGAIN) and CT and Wes won for the guys, securing a spot in the final. Unsurprisingly, Preston and Knight come in last and are headed straight to The Jungle.
3. Out of Breath, Full of Luck
This challenge lasted only 3 minutes, but a lot of the challengers struggled with it. Most noticeably, Johnny couldn’t catch his breath and was seen struggling after about a minute. While he did do well enough to not come in last, he was so exhausted that he threw up. Of course, he knew he was still safe from The Jungle, and he was right. Jordan and Marlon got voted in.
4. Out of Shape and In a Fight
After Jordan and Marlon got voted into The Jungle, TJ congratulated Frank and Johnny for making it to the final. Of course, Wes says a slick comment stating that he was excited to compete against someone who couldn’t even complete a 3 minute challenge. Johnny reminds Wes that Kenny had to carry him in his last final (Rivals 1) and reminds CT that Diem had to help him on his last finals (Battle of the Exes). The old men continue to yell at each other and Wes implies that Johnny has no life outside of The Challenge while he owns a Porsche, BMW, monster truck, and 30 companies. Of course, no one could even entertain this lie so the fight promptly ended.
5. A Smashing Final
Knight and Preston faced Marlon and Jordan in the Breaking on Through Jungle. While the rookies felt confident, they didn’t want to underestimate Knight and Preston. Once TJ sounds the horn, the rookies take a lead. However, Knight really struggles at the second level of this challenge and the rookies are able to complete the rest of the Jungle because Knight can break the chains on the second level. Knight and Preston lose the last Jungle, but seem to be somewhat happy that they at least made it that far in the game. Marlon and Jordan earn their spot as the final male team in the finals!
