Surviving “The Challenge” means facing down your biggest fears — for Diem, it’s heights, for Cara Maria, it’s water, and on last week’s “Free Agents” episode, we learned that for Zach, it’s premium plastic wrap. The show’s resident Goliath became totally claustrophobic after being bound in the clingy kitchen supply during “Sausage Party,” and though he came away with a second-place finish, he couldn’t stop the panicked freak-out that had been bubbling up throughout the obstacle course. Guess we can assume he chooses paper at the grocery checkout!
On the next episode, trouble will come off the field, though, with kinda-sorta couple Nany and Cohutta. The pair seems to be getting along famously, but Nany is convinced she’s destined to screw things up in the sneak peek below. “I don’t want to hurt you,” she says repeatedly to her pseudo-BF at the bar, but like a self-fulfilling prophecy, when she gets home, she and Johnny find themselves in a compromising position between the sheets (or, more accurately, on top of a couch). “I don’t know where it came from,” she says in retrospect. “I don’t really like Johnny like that, but it is what it is.”
What’ll happen between Nany and Cohutta? Find out on the next “Free Agents” episode, tonight at 10/9c!
