The Challenge XXX: Top Moments from Episode 16

The final six are ready to compete!

1. Hanging by a Thread

 The remaining six competitors have one last chance to earn a spot in the final in a challenge called Snaking Your Way Back In. The goal is to use two ropes to swing across a beam and then transfer to one yellow rope. Then, competitors must use that one rope to shimmy to the end of the beam and go into the water. For the men, Derrick takes a quick lead. Hunter cannot get his rhythm because he lacks the proper grip strength. Tony, despite his height, never really moves. This allows Derrick to secure his spot in the final. For the women, Camila figures out how to move fairly quickly. Jenna and Kailah never master the motion, so Camila gets into the final.

2. Heading South

TJ informs the cast they’re going to be leaving Columbia and heading to Argentina, 4,000 miles away, for the final. This is a sign that the end is near. While some people are excited, others are nervous. Especially because the first place male and female will take home $450,000 each.

3.Leap of Faith 

The final will start with a jump out of a plane from 20,000 feet above the ground. A lot of people are excited, especially Jordan, while others are scared. Cara Maria is crying and is clearly the most nervous of all but she does jump. All seems to be going well until the ground approaches.

4. Crash Landing 

Upon hitting the ground, the competitors are greeted by a rocky runway. CT tears his shorts, but that’s the least of our concerns. Jordan doesn’t land correctly, and his crash landing scares the other competitors. Medics take a look at him, and eventually he is able to “walk it off.” He appears to be feeling OK, but he knows something is off with his knee. Still, he decides to compete in the final.

5. Rock This Final 

The final will be played in multiple heats, some being individual and some being in pairs. The first heat requires players to race through a maze to find a station with instructions. With a partner, the competitors must move 30 rocks through the maze. Derrick arrives first and starts working with Cara Maria. Jordan arrives second and works with Camila. Tori and CT are then paired third. While Derrick and Cara Maria start in the lead, other teams move more rocks at a time and start to accumulate rocks faster. Then, Jordan discovers a quicker route in the maze so he and Camila seem to be in the lead. The race has just begun, but the episode ends.
