The final is getting close! Before the final, the cast has to compete in a final-like competition called Weight for Me. They have to alternate carrying a bag (70 pounds for men, 40 for women) between check points. At the check points, one teammate must complete a task (examples are monkey bars, chain pulling, and an obstacle course). Whole some teammates are used to these grueling challenges, newbies like Vince and Cory start to struggle with the weight. This gives Aneesa and Rianna an opportunity to prove their strength, and they get a quick lead. They hold this lead until Rianna fails at crossing monkey bars, then Jenna and Brianna take the lead. If nothing else, this challenge is proving the female teams have potential to do well.

The teams get to the final obstacle in the following order: Jenna and Brianna, Cara Maria and Jamie, Bananas and Vince, Aneesa and Rianna, then Mitch and Cory. Of course, the final stage is a puzzle. While most teams struggle, Mitch goes to the puzzle and drops all the pieces in the right spot like it’s nothing. So, Cory and Mitch win the challenge after being in last the bulk of the time.

  1. I thought Cara/cousin didn’t have a chance against Bananas. That was a really fun pit to watch.

    I predict Anessa/cousin get taken out in the next pit.

      • If the challenge was physical I expected Vince/Bananas to dominate. If the challenge was a puzzle I expected Cara/cousin to flounder. There aren’t very many other options for challenges.
