Much of “The Challenge“’s entertainment value is the drama that erupts off the field, but “Rivals II” includes some incredible competitors whose moves keep us on the edge of our seats, too. Each week, we’re pointing out the highs and lows of every mission, so you can watch every triumph, and every COMPLETE AND UTTER FAILURE, on a loop forever and ever. You win some, you lose some…
With only two missions to go before the big “Rivals II” finale, the pressure was on for the guys during last night’s episode, as a lackluster performance in “Rampage” meant a guaranteed trip to The Jungle and the possibility of being the last team eliminated. Some took the bull by the horns and showed off their athletic chops, but others tired out pretty quickly after a series of up-ramp-runs. And though the ladies were safe for the time being, a few still put on a really good show. Check out the high and low points of the penultimate mission!
WIN SOME: Wes said toward the beginning of this season that he hasn’t hit the gym in two years, but you wouldn’t know it from the way he performed in “Rampage.” He and partner CT were the only team to transfer all 20 balls from the top of one ramp to the other (with time to spare) and Wes nearly took flight when Knight — who struggled — tried to take him out.
LOSE SOME: Camila’s a tough chick (we wouldn’t want to mess with her!), but “Rampage” just wasn’t her mission, and Cooke sort of hit the nail on the head when she likened Team Green’s performance to an “America’s Funniest Home Videos” submission. Good thing it wasn’t a ladies’ Jungle day, because the former champ and her partner, Jemmye, would have been fighting for their lives once more.
