Welcome to "The Challenge"!

The battle for the first
world championship

is off to an explosive start.

Let's go!

After a brutal qualifier,
16 global MVPs

from Argentina, Australia,
the UK, and USA

were teamed up
with "Challenge" Legends,

creating some of the fiercest
teams in "Challenge" history.

For the second time,
Australia's Grant

absolutely killed it
and won the challenge.



But this time, he did it
with his new partner,

"Challenge" Legend Jonna.

The rest
of the powerhouse teams

then had to nominate
two other pairs

to face challenge losers
Argentina's Jujuy and Nelson,

and the votes landed
on Benja and Jodi,

representing Argentina,

and Tristan and KellyAnne,
representing Team UK.

Oh, my gosh.
[laughs]

Now Grant and Jonna will
have the difficult decision

on which of those teams
will be sent into the arena

where one pair's quest
for $1/2 million

and the title
of Challenge World Champion

will come to an end.



- I don't know what to do.
- You don't?

As the games start
to get personal,

relationships will be
put to the test.

You always have to have
that knife ready.

Yeah.

'Cause you're gonna need
to use it eventually.

Welcome to "The Challenge."

Amos Argentina!

Argentina! Argentina!

Whoo!

- Little by little.
- Go, go, go!

Harder!

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!

all: Oi, oi, oi!

- Come on, Aussie!
- Oi!

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!
all: Oi, oi, oi!

All day.

[all cheering]

Let's go, UK. You got this.

[tires squealing]

- Let's go!
- Whoo!

I am here to work.

USA!

all: USA!

Team USA is fired up.

[all cheering]

Damn, fam!

- USA!
- Argentina!

- Aussie!
- Oi!

UK!

♪ ♪

KellyAnne came
and attacked me in our room.

She was just like,
"We are friends in real life."

She was just very emotional
up and down, you know?

She might be, but she's,
like, fucking eerily loyal.

You're my friend,
and I will make moves

like you're my friend because
that's what I've always done

for you, and I will continue
to always do for you

until you tell me
you're not my friend.

She's a little firecracker, KellyAnne.

Oh, yeah. And--

One question, though,
do you feel as though

you might be a little bit
scared of her?

If I do end up voting her in,

she's going to lose her shit.

For me, for the girls,
I don't care

if Jodi or KellyAnne goes in.

Honestly, at some point,
they both have to go.

I just want to know
what's the right move right now

to ensure the future,
you know what I mean?

I think the right move is
probably to send in Jodi.

Friendships are important
to a certain extent,

but in order to be good at this
and make it to the end,

you have to kind of remove
your heart from the game.

The problem is, is I know

if I, in fact,
put KellyAnne in

and she comes back,
then she's--

apparently we're not
going to be friends anymore,

which I don't understand.

I can't worry about what
KellyAnne thinks in this game.

I have to focus
on our team, so...

I can see why it's
a hard decision.

She's just, like,
a loose cannon for me.

♪ ♪

This is just like
a huge slap in the face.

It's very dirty, and to sit
here and look me in the face

and say we're friends--

you have this opportunity
to, like, save my ass.

I would be saving yours.

But she hasn't--she hasn't
not saved your ass yet.

But why would she talk to me
about how she might not

unless she just wanted
to totally stress me out?

This is a pretty
simple decision.

You have the ability
to protect me.

You know I'll protect you and
that I'll always keep my word.

Why are we questioning now

if you're going to throw me in
or not?

And honestly, just the audacity
of using the word "friend"

and then telling me
on the first opportunity

you have to protect me
that you're not going to,

that you're
even questioning it...

Yeah.

Like, I don't know
how to look at her now.

Listen,
there's nothing we can do.

Like...

Sometimes going
with the consensus is

the weak move, but it might be
her better move.

But no, 'cause--

But nothing's happened yet, KellyAnne.

All of our Legends want Jodi,

because they know
Jodi's a strong person,

so they don't want her here.

And then she could have at
least given us the opportunity

to have a few more
challenges under our belt

to get to understand
how to work together

before she throws me in
with the wolves.

Now, at this point
in the game,

I'm in a bit of a pickle.

KellyAnne is very similar
to me in the sense

that she can't keep
her mouth shut

when she feels a certain way.

The best option,
to be honest,

would be the U.S. person

because you guys are strong
right now.

I don't really want
the strongest people

here at the end.

[laughs]
I guess you guys do, though.

Now, I was hoping for
a partner who would

tone down that quality in me,
but it seems like

I have to be the calming one.

I just want them to, like,
not notice us,

and instead, all they're doing
is noticing us.

You're stressing me out
now, girl,

and I need you to keep it calm.

If it's us,
we're gonna take it on the chin

and we're gonna do it,
but you're putting

too much pressure on yourself.

I feel bad for you.
I feel really bad for myself.

Don't feel bad.
Listen, anything could happen.

This game--there's no
certainties in this game.

♪ ♪

Do you guys know
where you're going to go

to vote in, or you don't know?

I don't know.

It's so bittersweet.

You know,
it's like when you win...

Yeah.

You got to jam
someone in there.

I don't envy you.

Jonna, I don't think
she should give a shit

what KellyAnne thinks.

I think you should just
kick her to the curb

and just let her go,
because, Jonna, you're strong,

you're a very good competitor,

and you don't need to be
friends with everyone, mate.

But for this moment,
I've got to trust her.

She's been in this game
far longer than me.

She's known all these people,
and hopefully,

I don't get shot in the back.

This is just way more intense.
- Yeah.

Things are looking
pretty good right now.

Aussies have the power,
and if we can stick together,

I think we can be
the strongest country here.

Have I shown you
my cowboy boots?

Did Ryan buy you these?

No, I bought these in Vegas.

Look, I got my initials
burned in them.

I didn't go on
"The Challenge" Australia

expecting to fall in love.

Obviously, I went in there
with a partner,

uh, came out
with a different partner.

Awesome job, Emily and Ryan.

[all cheering]

- Ryan and I went on a trip
after we left the game.

We spent three weeks traveling
from New York to LA driving,

stopping in at various places,
getting drunk, having fun.

Came home, we moved in
together, and yeah,

we're in love.

You know, you buy the vintage
ones that are, like,

super expensive,
because they're--

actual cowboys have
ridden horses in them.

I mean, I've ridden a cowboy
while wearing them.

[laughter]
I'm kidding.

No, you're not.
[laughter]

This is the truth.

[laughs]

What do you think?

I think
what you need to think about

is, like, what girl
do you want to go against?

Do you feel more comfortable
with KellyAnne,

or do you feel more comfortable
with Jodi?

I know you're feisty.

- Yeah, yeah.
- You have that energy, so...

Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I know. Yeah, that's true.

So you just think about that.

We don't got to make
a decision tonight,

but think about those two.
- OK.

When I win the money,
$500,000,

I'm going to take my mom
around the world.

But the last place
that we're going to stop at

is Jujuy in Argentina, baby.

- Yay!
- [laughs]

I would be so happy
to have your--

- You ready to meet my mom?
- Yeah.

- You know she speaks Spanish?
- Does she really?

- Yes.
- Oh, yeah.

She's going to love you.

I think I have
a lot of pressure now.

I want you to win so your mom

going to travel the world,
you know?

You're coming--
we are coming back tomorrow,

and we're going to kill it.

- OK.
- A'ight.

I don't think we're going
to go into elimination.

That's my hope.

- Also mine.
- OK.

Good.
Then we're on the same page.

And I have a hunch.

- OK, we're on the same page.
- I have a hunch.

I'm not going to go
against Jujuy tomorrow,

because life is not
going to put me in that place.

Benja loves to think
the best of people, and he's--

it's one of the things I really
like about him as a partner,

is he's very positive.

But honestly,
that's not what this game is

about unfortunately,
and people are

not always going to do what
they say they're going to do.

They're not always going
to do the right thing,

and so always be ready.

We don't know
what's going to happen.

You're starting
to understand the game.

Yes, I am,
but I have to be honest.

There's, like, things
I wouldn't do to win it.

Mm-hmm.

And that's, like,
go against my word.

Mm-hmm.

I want to be really honest
about everything that I do.

The tricky part
of this game is, like,

you can't take things personally.

But if you're an Argentinian
like I am

and, like, a Gemini like I am,
it's really tough.

I'm kind of, like, struggling

with my personal way of being
and the game player,

and I still don't get it.

You could do your best.
You're amazing.

I'm really thankful
that you're my partner,

because you're great.
- I totally agree.

Yeah.
- We're amazing.

We're so amazing.

Yes, we are.

Give me a hug.

You're amazing.

You're amazing.
- Yeah. [laughs]

I'm so thankful
to have you as a partner.

- Yeah.
- You're amazing.

- Thank you.
- Thank you.

I'm going to go
to the bathroom.

- Yeah.
- And you're going to go there.

Well, I think today was
very telling

for where a few people stood.

This is why, like,
a lot of the vets

have waited a little bit
to talk game,

because what's
happening right now is,

people have made promises
that they couldn't keep.

Because the way
the game is now,

we're partnered with you guys.

We can't keep them.

We have to vote, like, a--

a Legend in.

They have to go in.

♪ ♪

I mean, the Legends, we play
seasons with each other.

We have relationships
that expand multiple seasons.

So for us to fuck
one another over in this game--

Legend on Legend crime, I guess
you could say--is not good

unless it's super calculated,
because you're fucking up

a relationship that could
mess with you in the future,

so it's just going
to be really hectic.

I'll tell you right now,
if Jordan or Wes touches

me or Kaycee, it's a wrap.

- Right.
- It's--no.

It's a wrap.

Some of the Legends,
you never really know

what type of game
they're going to play.

Are they working together?

Are they working apart?

I trust Tori at this moment.

I just don't trust her
to put me first.

Good morning.

Welcome to "The Challenge"
World Championships.

This is what it's like
living in the house

with a bunch of Challengers.

♪ ♪

This is all clean.

We cleaned this this morning
because we got chow coming,

but come over here.

I'll show you
where the real mayhem is.

I've already cleaned
a lot of this up, but look.

Plates, food,
dishes everywhere.

If you--we have
no clean dishes.

So one trick I learned
from "The Challenge" USA

is to hide your stash, so I
got a clean cup, clean mug,

clean bowl,
and I never have to worry

about dirty dishes anymore.

So if you ever come
on "The Challenge,"

make sure you hide your stuff.

I really feel like
people are playing

a short-term game right now.

Like, would you have to talk
and convince, like, Danny?

No.

- Right.
- Right.

I'm much closer to Jonna
than you are Danny.

Right.

I know it's a game,
but it's also our lives.

And we sit here
and connect with each other,

and we make real friendships.

It's a game
that changes people's lives.

Correct.

[solemn music]

It's not the game
that's getting to me.

It's a friendship
that I have put years

of my life into
that is really hurting me.

I don't want anyone to hurt
their game because of me.

- Mm-hmm.
- I don't.

I don't like to think that
I'm hurting someone's game.

Yeah.

It's about
my personal feelings

towards a friend in my heart.

I don't know...

That's what I'm saying.
You can't say that yet.

No, but the fact
that she's questioning it,

like, means that it's whatever.

But, like, I think with you
right now,

Sarah has your back dead.

Tori and Jordan, they won't
say each other's names.

Right.

But I'm close to Jonna,
so if, you know,

there's anything I can
do or say, I talk to her.

Yeah.

I don't know if there's
much I can do at this point,

but I'm hoping that Jonna
stays true to our friendship.

After this, I'm probably
just either going to prove

that I'm better
than what I look like so far

so it's only going
to get better,

or I come back and...

I have free range
to act like a psychopath.

Right. Yeah.
[both laugh]

- You know.
- Yeah. [laughs]

I loved your zero eff attitude,
by the way.

talk for two years.

We have been ex, right?
- Ah.

We're not friends.

We're not friendly.

It was not good, but now,

this is the first time
in two years that we get along.

Yeah? See?

It's, like,

Kaz had a lot of growing up

I was always good,

No--oh.

I'm always good boy,
friendly as well,

but she had to become nice.

He thinks he is perfect.

For me, it was--

it was hard to be
in a relationship with him.

Yeah.

Being exes with Theo,
this is the first time

we are getting on.

I feel like I am
in control of that.

I feel like I'm being
very nice to him,

another enemy in here.

Like, I need friends.
I need alliances.

He's come a long way.

He's grown up a lot.

I also have grown up a lot.

Yeah. I've come a long way.

I've learned how to shut
my mouth a little bit.

Only a little bit, though.

It's a butt massage.

Tori and I will always have
a very, very deep connection.

I'm giving you pleasure
on your booty.

[laughter]

We always say
that we've imprinted

on each other like werewolves.

- This is what you get.
- Oh, there you go.

We're honestly better
than we've ever been

after breaking up.

And I know Tori and I will
be riding for each other

just as we've always done,
and hopefully this time,

way less turmoil.

[tense music]

The situation in the house,
it's strained.

I think it's pretty obvious
that this game is

based on relationships versus
representing your country.

You can see that
with Theo and Kaz.

You can see that with the Tori
and Jordan relationship.

Too many friends can get you
in trouble in this game.

There's a lot of people
that you have to protect,

and the fewer,
the better for me.

What's KellyAnne saying?

- She was very upset.
- Oh, is she?

- She's like--she's very--
- Sensitive.

Emotionally sensitive, yeah.

Like, the way that she reacted yesterday

when Jonna wasn't sure
and stuff,

she was, like, really upset
and kind of was

almost, like, prodding
the bear.

And I was like,
"Let's just leave it now."

Yeah, she seemed pissed.

She was pissed.
She was so pissed.

She was pissed.

No, she seems, like, intense.

Yeah.
She does a lot of talking.

- Maybe too much, do you think?
- Maybe too much talking, yeah.

That it's just
pushing her away.

'Cause it creates, like,
ripples and stuff.

I think
because she got picked last,

and then she didn't do well
in the next challenge.

Yes.

Her ego's bruised
from that as well.

Her ego's definitely bruised.

Even that, in a sense,
I'm feeling

fucking pretty low because,
obviously, I came last.

And you need someone
to pick you up.

We're here to pick you up.
Don't worry.

You're amazing.
You're amazing, Tristan.

You are amazing.

I'm not going to lie to you.

to know that the UK

are going to stick together.

It's called the United Kingdom
for a reason.

We stand united.

especially this being

the first one
since we're partnered.

We don't know, you know, how it
will affect us in the future.

All you can do is, you know,
come to a decision

and, you know, hope
that you made the right one.

Yeah, exactly.

♪ ♪

It's a struggle for me to use
my social skills,

my charming to be useful
in the game.

But suddenly I see, like,
a really good opportunity

to talk to Jonna,
because she's the one

pulling the strings,

and she's the one
with the connections.

And I need to kind of,
like, prove myself

that I can be useful for her.

But at the same time,
KellyAnne is in the same room

as we are speaking, so it's,
like, really uncomfortable.

What are you basing
your decision off?

I don't know what it's
going to be based off of.

There's so many variables,
almost too many...

- Mm-hmm.
- That it doesn't work.

Benja doesn't know this,
but Jonna has assured me

and Tristan that we will
not be going in tonight,

so I'm just kind of watching
Jonna and studying her face.

I have maybe, like,
a 0.1% feeling

that Jonna could be
lying to me,

but honestly, if Jonna's lying,
she's a complete sociopath.

Ultimately, that's up to you.

Whether you go home or not,
that's up to you

in elimination,
and then that's that.

Jonna is obviously
friends with KellyAnne,

that remark during nominations

saying we should take out
the big teams,

I mean, how is Jonna not
going to take that personally?

She's going to continue

So here's a pop quiz,
my young pupil.

Oh, God.
Here we go again.

So what side
are we rooting for?

UK!

Not the UK. Oh, my God.

The answer is both.

We're rooting for both teams
because we're playing...

both: Both sides.

- Oh, my God.
- Yeah.

But doesn't change the fact

that I'm still nervous
for Tristan.

It is Argentina
versus the UK.

This is going to be good.

All right, tonight,
you are playing Tether Brawl.

To begin, one teammate is going
to be harnessed up

into that sling

while the other teammate is
going to try and swing them

as high as they can

so they can grab
those building blocks.

Once you grab eight
of those building blocks,

tossing them into your section,

your partner that was
swinging you will then build

a tower eight blocks high.

If at any time your partner
drops a building block

and it falls into the center
of the arena,

that piece is still up
for grabs.

First one to eight will win
tonight's elimination round

and stay in the game.

This season is worth
your share of $500,000,

so you don't want
to go home now.

All right?

Good luck everyone.
