The Challenge XXX: Top Moments from Episode 5

Revenge is a bitch.

1. Revenge House

The cast arrives to see a hanging platform, and they are told they will not be competing today. Instead, they are surprised by the boat containing the first eight people eliminated. Prior to leaving the redemption house, TJ surprised the cast and told them they’d be battling to return to the house. He ask who they’d seek revenge on if they returned. Both Darrell and Devin are coming after Cory, while Derrick is focused on Dario and Tony wants to take out Nelson. For the females, Jenna is obviously mad at Jemmye and Briana wants revenge on Veronica. Because Jenna is in the house, LaToya sides with Amanda and wants to take out Camila because she is a shit-starter.

2. The First Fights

The redemption challenge requires the cast to battle on a platform suspended over water that swings while the competitors wrestle. The goal is to knock your opponent off and the first person to hit the water loses. The games are played bracket style, so the first round is Devin vs. Darrell. Darrell can basically manhandle Devin, but Devin grabs Darrell as he starts to fall. Still, Devin touches the water first and loses. Then, Tony and Derrick fight. Similarly, they fall in unison but Derrick touches the water first and loses. The stage is set for Darrell to fight Tony.

3. Girl Fights

The girls are separated into LaToya vs. Amanda and Jenna vs. Briana. Amanda takes the approach of getting low, and while Toya knocks her off she grabs Toya and Toya hits the water first. On the other hand, Jenna outsizes Briana and can basically roll Bri off the platform and into the water. Now Amanda is prepared to fight Jenna.

4. Life Vest of Death 

Darrell and Tony head into the final round. It quickly becomes apparent that Darrell is in control and he pushes Tony toward the edge. Tony realizes he is about to fall, so he grabs onto Darrell’s life vest. This causes Darrell to fall as well and it Darrell hits the water first. Fortunately for Tony, this shifty move was enough to get him back into the game.

5. High and Dry

Jenna and Amanda face off in the final battle. Amanda again tries to get low, and this strategy makes it difficult for Jenna to just throw her into the water. Jenna spends a while trying to push Amanda off, and this quickly wears her down. Still, Amanda doesn’t make any moves to push off Jenna and Jenna eventually gets Amanda to the edge and pushes her off. Jenna wins her spot back into the house and never had to get her hair wet in the process.
