Things were intense this week on The Challenge: Invasion of the Champions. Serious pranks were made, alliances started to shake, and an expected hook up took place.
Following up from last week’s elimination where Ashley K. and Zach were eliminated, the cast got to have their first night out of the house. Everyone seemed to enjoy their time at the club especially Cory who couldn’t help but notice Camila’s Brazilian booty. Cory found himself later that night to be a lucky man when Camila found her way into his bed. I guess Kailah was just another notch on his belt because he didn’t seem to care the next morning when Camila teased him for hooking up with Kailah. Hopefully, Camila is careful when dealing with one of the biggest players in the challenge house.
The challenge this week was a food challenge. Food challenges are always tough because it shows the heart of each competitor. Food challenges typically don’t occur until the final round, but this episode was the exception. Each team had to eat two round of spicy curry. The champs however, had to always eat double to make up for the lack of team members. The bowl had to be completely empty before the team could collect their puzzle pieces and race up the hill. The girl and guy on both teams, who reached the top of the hill received immunity from the elimination.
It was clear from the start that the champs were going to have the advantage because they’ve all-except Laurel have done an eating challenge in their finals. Unfortunately, the underdogs couldn’t get it together except for Shane. Shane finished his bowls, other people’s bowls, and continues to scream at his teammates as motivation. His teammates weren’t happy with him because he went a bit overboard, which helped the champs take the W for that challenge. By the end of the challenge he formed a secret alliance outside his own with Nicole. They both decided they would never say each other’s name. However, a sneaky Dario, heard the conversation and decided to tell everyone to avoid elimination.
Ashley, Sylvia, and Amanda were furious at Shane for making another alliance without including them. They wanted to play the game as friends and they have trouble understanding that the challenge is an individual game. Although, they now don’t trust Shane the snake, they still decided to vote in Dario instead of him. So, Dario was voted to go against Nelson in the elimination. Meanwhile, Sylvia felt that since she performed poorly today during the challenge she wanted to vote herself into elimination against the BarbieBeast Jenna.
Bananas the pot stirrer decided to prank the underdogs by removing their toilet seat and putting it into the lake. Such a small prank made Smashley on the verge of quitting the show completely. Apparently, she spends “80% of her time in the house on the toilet”. The champs are laughing their asses off because the pranks were considered nothing to back in the day pranks. Pranks on old school challenge days were cruel and funny. They use to throw cookies at Mike while he was sleeping, Preston would strip and try to caress all the men in the house, and Knight made a trail of ants come into Preston’s mattress. These newcomers are only good for starting drama and making up rumors. Which is why they were furious when the female champs crumbled up chips inside their sheets. Amanda and Ashley both took their anger out on Hunter, who then ended his challenge “relationship” with Ashley.
The elimination aka The Fortress was interesting tonight. There hung a huge bell with idols full of powder hanging from it. In the center of the bell, was a long rope which each competitor had to use to break the idols. However, the more idols each competitor broke, the more they were covered in powder causing them to not be able to see anything. For players like Dario and Sylvia this was their problem throughout the elimination and it caused them to lose. Jenna and Nelson both had rhythm and strategy to help them keep their spot in the house. The episode ended with a sobbing Slyvia who states that she regrets voting herself in.
