With the World Championship
finale just around the corner,

five teams remain at this
pivotal moment in the game,

and one team's dream of
becoming the world champion

will come to an end.

As the Challengers
arrived to a lake,

Emily was excited to
get back in the water.

Whoo-hoo! Yeah!

The pairs had to swim out
to six different buoys

and gather their puzzle
pieces one at a time.

Emily and Yes won
the challenge by seconds.

- Let's go! Ah!
- [screaming]

Kiki and Darelle
had a chance,

but they just couldn't
solve that puzzle,

sending them straight
into elimination again.

You're fucking kidding me.

And at nominations,

the house decided
to stalemate...

All in favor, say aye.

Giving Yes and Emily
all the power...

Hell yeah.
This is what we wanted.

This is huge.

Where they choose
to send their countrymate

Troy and Kaycee in
to face Kiki and Darrell

for an all-Australian battle.


And in the end, Troy and
Kaycee got it done,

sending Darrell and Kiki home.

These pairs will do
whatever it takes to make it

to that final
for the coveted title

of Challenge World Champion.

♪ ♪

- Yo!
- Screw the K, undefeated.

- Good job, man.
- Yeah, well done.

Crushed it.
- Good job, good job,

good job, good job.

It's clear as day
Emily is just jealous.

She's bitter.
She feels some type of way

because Troy and Kiki did win
their Australian Challenge.

Australia strong,
Australia strong.

Australia strong.

We have to get
Yes and Emily back.

They threw us in.

We have got to
take a shot back,

and we can't let them slide.

I'm still here.

♪ ♪

I do feel like Jordan
sees me as a pawn

in his game of chess.

He literally makes decisions,

and that's just how Jordan
wants to run things

and what Jordan wants to do.

You've done probably
100 eliminations.

I've done one.
What makes you think

I want to throw myself
into one now?

If you're gonna keep talking

about, "I don't want to go in,
I don't want to go in,"

it's definitely not
gonna motivate me

to keep us in this game.
- Honestly,

I just want Jordan to hear me,
hear my opinion,

hear my voice, and treat me as
an equal in this partnership

'cause right now I don't
feel like he's doing that.

♪ ♪

Well, Kiki and Darrell
are gone, not the--

not the ones we wanted.

We knew no matter what,
that this next challenge,

we have to win.
- Yeah.

It doesn't matter who
is here or who is not here.

We've had to win, like,
the last five.

I know Troy and Kaycee
are out there

ready to seek revenge.

It's gonna be a bloodbath now.

If we can stay focused and
earn that power as a winner,

Emily and I are safe.

You know, Troy and Kaycee
are gunning for us,

which we always knew they were.

- Yeah.
- It's like, we knew

we had to win anyways.

Everyone sees me
as this athlete,

as this amazing swimmer,

and I know
I'm so much more than that.

I can work out how to do
strategies in this game.

And on the next challenge,
we have a deal

with Jordan and Kaz.

- Say it's a mini final...
- Yeah.

And we're in the lead,
we will sit the fuck down

before we cross
that finish line.

- Yeah.
- And we will get second.

Well, great.
Well, then let's ride.

- Yeah.
- Let's do it. You're good?

Yeah, absolutely.

They're not gonna win,
and that gives Yes and I

a chance to win
or Sarah a chance to win.

And it's just so good to
have someone in this house

that has my back.

And I'm telling you right now,
I'm making this final.

- So we're in a good spot.
- Yeah.

- Right?
- Yeah.

Good spot.

- So I'll be honest.
- OK.

As your partner, I feel
very kind of undervalued.

It is important
to communicate with Jordan.

I just need to get
something off my chest,

and hopefully
he can understand me.

Like, when you
speak to me, it can be very,

like, patronizing and very,
like, I don't know,

condescending, or sometimes
I actually think that you

don't think I want to win.

The thing that I get
nervous the most about

is letting you down.

My partner is amazing.
I need to do amazing, too.

When I did that maths
challenge, I felt so shit.

It was literally all my fault.
You didn't have to do anything,

and Jordan thinks
I'm a shit partner.


[air horn blares]
- You're out of time.

Fuck off.

[light applause]

The competition
is just so hard.

Like, everyone's so good.

I'm stoked to
be with you, Kaz.

And we're gonna
go in there, and

we're gonna do this together.

I will always have your back.

I want to win, and I
want to win with you.

That part of me
comes out wrong,

I truly am sorry for that.

I don't want to
make you feel bad.

It doesn't help when
I'm trying my best

and I'm trying to win
challenges and do everything

for you because in the back
of my head, maybe I think,

oh, you think
I'm not good enough.

Go this way.
- No, up to that corner,

that one.
- This?

Yes. We're moving, though.
We're not walking.

Go on.
Goddamn it.

I'm sorry that it
comes out on you in--

and in a patronizing way.

Like, that, I don't want to do.

I'm not skilled enough
yet to not do that.

I'm--I'm sorry, Kaz.

I really am.
- [sniffles]

Thank you.

There are so many
facets of this game.

There's a social side,

there's a strategic side,

there's a physical side,

But there's also
a huge emotional side

and having to backstab
your friends and whatnot.

But being away from
home and everything,

like, you left
behind to be here,

you're trying to ensure
that everything you're doing

is worth it.

Definitely the
emotional aspect of this

is far worse than anything else
leading up into this final.

- Hi.

How are you?


Hey, show Mom your picture.

Oh, did you draw that,

- Mm-hmm.
- Good job.

He took me to a drawing
lesson, and that's a puppy.

I taught Daddy
how to draw it.

Good job, babe.

I miss you.

- I do, too.
- You do?


- Bye, I love you.
- I love you.

Put some Chapstick on, buddy.

Yes, it's--no, no.

We're not hanging out
and partying.

I promise, it is not
a fuckin' vacation.

I've got a career at home.

I have a husband at home.

I have a son at home
that deserves my all,

and him being a single
parent at home right now

is starting to weigh on him.

My son, his smile is
slowly fading

every phone call
I get with them.

So, being gone this long,
is--is this all worth it?

All right, I love you.
- All right, good luck.

I love you.

Me and Sarah's relationship
has grown

We made sure that we
stayed in contact every day

with our workout
plans to motivate

and inspire each other to
come out here and be our best.

We just have to keep the

♪ ♪

All right, everyone,
welcome to your next challenge

on this season of
"The World Championship."

Today's challenge
is called Downfall.

[dramatic music]

To begin, you and
your partner are gonna

start on that shoreline.

When I say go,
you'll jump in the water

and swim as fast as you can
to a colored ladder.

Once you get on that ladder,
you're gonna climb

all the way up
to a Challenge symbol.

The first team to
untie that symbol

gets their pick
of which team they want

to eliminate right away.

They're gonna climb up,
choose a color.

Whatever color they choose
gets dropped, instantly out.

This is key because
the first team eliminated

is going straight into
the Arena.

After that, teams will
continue dropping each other,

but the teams that can
avoid being dropped

will continue to make their way
up the ladder, solve a puzzle,

hit a red button, which will
drop the remaining teams.

Oh, yeah, one more thing.

[suspenseful music]

This is your last challenge...

[cheers and applause]

which means
if you win today,

then you've punched
your ticket to the final,

which gives you
a shot at your share

of a half a million dollars.

This is amazing.

We've got the momentum here.

That's Emily.
She's got Olympic gold.

She's an amazing swimmer.

She's done all
this shit before,

and we've got
a swimming challenge.

That's huge.

Got it?
Good luck, everyone.

Knowing it's a swimming
challenge, I'm like, shit.

But there's a sabotage
in this challenge.

As much as I respect Emily as,
like, this Olympic competitor,

I'm gonna do everything
in my power to get

Emily and Yes out of the game.

on who we pull,

we'll probably pull
Troy and Kaycee.

Troy and Kaycee.

We're in a tough spot.
If the wrong people win

and the wrong people lose,

I feel like we're the ones
on the chopping block.

And if we win this one,
we're gonna

have to say someone's name
that we agreed to not say.

Oh, there's too many
promises being made here.

So why we're gonna
have to try and play this

so frickin' close to the line.

All right, everyone ready?

that uber pickup,

he would have been gassed.

I like to smile in this game,
and there's not many things

that make me smile.

But God, that made me smile.

Who pulled us?

This is not what we had
planned with our deal.

This is not the outcome that
we wanted, and I'm pissed.

Our deal with Emily
and Yes meant that

we will not win the challenge.

It doesn't mean we won't
beat you in a challenge.

Sarah! Sarah!
Come here.



Sarah has his back.
Jordan has my back.

We're not going anywhere.
So for us

to get pulled right now, fine.

I'm ecstatic.

We didn't have to
get our hands dirty,

and now I can just swim back
and see who wins.

Sarah, climb the fuckin'
ladder and do it.

I'm tired of standing here,
all right?

I'm thinking, what the
hell is going on here?

Why is he giving us the win?

No, what are the three
numbers that you have?

I trust ourselves
more than I trust you.

If you want to put your trust
in the game in our hands,

then that's fine.


What's the bottom number?

Why is he trying
to help them?

Jordan and Kaz
helping Sarah and Theo

is actually kind
of confusing to me

because why wouldn't Jordan and
Kaz want to be in first place?

Hold on.
What's that bottom one?

It makes you
a little bit suspicious.

I know. I know what it is.
I know what it is.

They all add up to 20.

So 6, 6, 12, 15, so 5.

That's the missing number, 5.


That is incorrect.

We are helping Theo and Sarah
win now because we're gonna

keep our promise
to Emily and Yes,

but I'm just like,
oh, my God,

how long are you guys
gonna take?

Like, don't you want to win?

I might as well just
climb up the ladder,

and I'll probably
beat you still.

Like, this is a joke now.

What's 9 times 5?


5 times 7...


So that's the thing.

You time the top by the bottom.

Yes, it is.
Yes, it is.

- What?
- Listen, listen, 9 times 5.

Look at your top left.

9 times 5 is 45.
- Yeah.

7 times 9 is 63.

5 times 7 is 35.

So what is your
top two numbers?

Remember the 6.

So add it all up.

So 21 plus 20 plus 25 plus 23.

89 times 2.

- There you go.



That is correct.


Yeah, Sarah!
Yeah, Theo!


Guess who the hero is?


Kaz figures it out.

Good job, Kaz.
Good job.


It's probably
the least fulfilled win

I'm ever gonna have
given to me by my ex,

but a win's a win.

And guess what, baby?

We're in the final.

All right, so then what
deal did Jordan cut with them,

though, is the question.

Jordan, you've been
playing this game

with me the entire time.

What conversations have
you been having that

I don't really know about?

Like, this, to me,
is a little shady.

That had to be a deal.

He wouldn't let them
win unless there was

a deal cut with them.
- Yeah.

- No.
- I have no idea

what's going on.

We have more relationships

that are affecting the game.

This is unreal.

But I have the ultimate
trust in Sarah

and nothing to worry about.

All right, everybody,
great challenge today.

Looks like there was a lot
of dealings going on, huh?

- Deal? What deal?

a lot of deals going on.

Well, in the end, the
Americans, Sarah and Theo won,

so congratulations to you two.

- Finally.

Literally, birthday
and Christmas

done in one fell swoop.

We ain't getting
you shit next year.

I'll be seeing
you two in my final.

Great job.

USA is on top, number one.

They had to leave it
to the big gun team.

- And those are big.
- But winning is winning,

all right?
- That's right.

If it's by an inch
or a mile, whatever.

We got it.
We're in the final.

USA finally got a win.

Now, the Australians,
Troy and Kaycee,

you got
sabotaged right out of the gate

by fellow Australians,
Emily and Yes.

Unfortunately for you,
Troy, Kaycee,

I'll be seeing
you in the Arena.

- Yep.
- Yeah.

Been there before.

Our own country sabotaged us.

Bloody at the elimination
they put us in.

- No surprise.
- So yeah, no surprises there.

This will be our third
elimination together.

- Together.
- And we're very familiar

with elimination,
so whoever's going in there

is going to, you know,
battle it out with us.

But we're ready.

Now, for the
rest of you, it's time

to go back to the house
and nominate one team...

- Ohh.
- To send into the Arena

to go against Troy and Kaycee.

Got it?

All right,
I'll see you in the Arena.

Good luck.

There's only gonna be one
team voted into elimination.

That really just confuses me

because we literally
just gave up our spot,

and now
what if we've actually

put ourself into
elimination by doing that,

by trying to keep a promise?

Like, this is a joke now.

push for a stalemate.

maybe we can actually
survive this last nomination.


I figured you were pulling
ours. I was ready.

What are you sorry for?
Like, my ass, Yes.

So I know that looked
really confusing up there,

but before the last
elimination, Emily and Yes

asked us to guarantee

If they saved
us for that one,

and I told them straight up,
I can't guarantee that.

But what I will do is go
out of our way to not win.

So that way,
the decision is not ours.


Jordan is definitely
making me question

his loyalty to me
at this point.

very straightforward

this entire game, looking
out for him, helping him.

And I'm like, the fuck?
The fuck?

What the fuck
is going on right now?

Sarah made a deal
with me, you, Danny.

So, nominations,
we're gonna stalemate.

All the friends are
in nominations together.

So no matter what, you
have to say someone's name

that you don't want to say.

So instead of pissing
each other off,

let's just give the power
to the winners.

Whoever has to go
in has to go in.

We're not gonna
face each other.


There's only three
teams at this nominations.

Like, it's Danny and I,
it's Jordan and Kaz.

We've been working
together all season.

Yes and Emily are
