The Challenge XXX: Top Moments from Episode 17

It’s the final… but not the end.

1. Bolas Striking Out 

We’re back were we left off, with teams of two transporting thirty rocks. Jordan & Camila finish first but Cara Maria & Derrick aren’t far behind. Then, CT & Tori finish last. The teams move onto a bola toss, having to take a shot of fermented milk for each missed toss. As the winners, Jordan and Camila get to pick one team to have to make two tosses successfully, and they give the penalty to CT & Tori. So, Jordan & Camila finish this stage first even though CT & Tori get their first successful toss before them. CT & Tori finish second while Cara Maria & Derrick come in last.

2. Puzzles and Crosses 

The second stage requires teams to switch and the winners get to choose teams. Jordan picks Tori while Camila picks CT, leaving Derrick with Cara Maria. The cast must then run down a hill and complete a puzzle. Jordan gets knee pain going down the hill, but Tori picks up the slack and works on the puzzle. However, CT & Camila finish first with Jordan & Tori close behind. Then, Derrick & Cara Maria come in last. Then the cast sees the double cross, and they know a twist is approaching. They are pulling crosses and the male and female who pull a double cross will assign a 5 minute penalty to a same-sex competitor. Tori pulls the cross for the females, giving Camila the penalty. CT then pulls the cross for the men, assigning the penalty to Jordan.

3. Ups and Downs

The cast must then race up a mountain and complete a totem pole puzzle. Jordan memorizes the puzzle, and everyone just copies him. Camila is the only one who makes a mistake and must return to the answer key to correct her error. There is then a climb up a mountain made of sand. Everyone struggles with the ground crumbling beneath them, but Camila has a panic attack when she can’t advance and the ground is crumbling beneath her.

4. Snakes Sliding Home

Teams must run into a tent filled with smoke and then determine a word written on the wall by feeling the imprint from the letters. The word is snake and Jordan & Tori have the quickest time solving it. Then CT & Cara Maria, then Camila & Derrick. The cast then arrives at a tent where they will be sleeping, but the winners can assign one member of the same sex to sleep outside. Jordan makes Derrick, then Tori makes Camila. They wake up and then run to their next task. It’s a sprint, but they can hold onto a glass sled being pulled by a truck. The longer they hold on, the short their run. However, all the cast members hold on the whole time.

5. The End Isn’t the End

This is the final sprint, and Jordan finishes first. It appears that this is time for the winner to be announced, but TJ has a surprise for the cast: the winner won’t be announced until the reunion. For the cast, this is a shock and a long time to not have their paycheck.

  1. I think Jordan and Camila won this season for sure. Not sure for the rest but I would say Derrick and Tori got 2nd and CT & CM 3rd.
