The Challenge XXX: Top Moments from Episode 3

1. Veterans Making Rookie Moves

After last week’s vote, Camila is receiving backlash for voting for burning her vote on Hunter. Namely, it’s Tori who is calling Camila and snake in this situation. While Camila insists that Tori has no idea what she’s talking about because she’s a rookie, Bananas seems to take Tori’s side and feels that Camila has some type of allegiance to Cory because she didn’t vote for him.

2. Getting XX’ed Out

TJ reveals a twist. Similar to The Draw on Free Agents, the second opponent in the elimination, now known as The Presidio will be determined at random. Players pull crosses, and most of them are a single cross. If you pull the one cross that’s a double cross then you’re safe. However, you’ll then have to send one of the other gamblers into elimination. For the men, Dario pulls the double cross and sends in Derrick H., because Leroy is his “brother.” For the women, Veronica goes first and pulls the double cross. She sends Britni in with no hesitation.

3. Great Balls of Fire

The Presidio game is called Balls to the Wall and players need to yank poles with balls of fire on their head through dry wall. Ten for the men, six for the women. Cory and Derrick go first, and Cory manages to develop a rhythm faster than Derrick and takes home a win. For the women, Briana gets a lead faster than Britni, but Briana burns out by the end giving Britni the chance to pass her at the last minute. Now Derrick and Briana are headed to redemption.

4. Fast Pass

The challenge is similar to one we’ve seen many times in the past. Named Battle Royale, this challenge has a narrow hallway and two teams running head to head. The goal is for each player to take one ring and transport it to the opposite side of the hall. Two captains are drawn at random to select teams of ten, meaning one male and one female will not be picked and will be eligible to pull crosses. Dario and Kailah become captains, and while Kailah tries to assemble an “agile” team, Dario picks all of the obvious choices and CT and Cara Maria. In the end, Ammo and Nicole don’t get picked so they’re forced into drawing crosses.

5. Hard and Fast 

For the men, Dario’s team wins with relative ease. As expected, CT excels in this challenge. For the women, the race is a little closer. With only Veronica and Britni left, Veronica narrowly gets her ring to the opposite side before Britni. Because Veronica is on Dario’s, this makes Dario’s team the winner. Now the losers joining Ammo and Nicole are: Kailah, Britni, Camila, Jemmye, Jenna, Derrick, Jordan, Tony, Nelson, and Bananas.

  1. I will say this challenge is a lot better then the ones in recent years. We have some strong vets and the rookies aren’t all that bad. Despite last weeks weird challenge, the challenges are pretty good as well. This elimination was pretty good too. So far, so good!
