"The Challenge:
World Championship"

is in full swing.

In the last challenge,

players jumped
off of a giant platform

onto an inflatable,

launching their partners
into the stratosphere.

Tristan and KellyAnne
grabbed their pieces

and swam to shore
in the fastest time,

securing the win.



Not only did Australia's Grant
injure himself,

but he landed him and Jonna
right here in the arena.

At nominations,
things got heated.

Boy, don't tell me
what to do.

I'm a grown-ass man.
Don't tell me what to do.

Don't tell me what to do.

The Australians
turned on each other...

I vote Yes and Emily.

Sending Emily and Yes
into the arena

while the other votes
went to Benja and Jodi.

But it was the elimination
that sent shockwaves.

Grant was medically disqualified,

so he and Jonna
were unable to continue.

All the best, guys.



[cheers and applause]

So you four are off the hook.

You got a chance.
Don't waste it.

We're down to ten teams

of global MVPs paired
with "Challenge" legends.

Who's gonna win this thing?

I think our communication
has been on point.

I wasn't worried about it.

Were you worried about me?
- No.

You seemed a little nervous
at the start.

Good things take time, okay?

- Okay.
- And again--

I had to wine and dine you.

- No.
- Yeah.

I mean, that would
have been nice,

but I would have settled
for the dollar menu.

It's 100% gonna be
an uphill battle

for Yes and I right now.

I've lost Grant.
I've lost Jonna.

So we have to continue strong.

And we just gotta hope

that something works
in our favor.

♪ ♪

- Morning.
- Wow.

I feel like I've given up
on life with this outfit.

I like
your give up on life look.

This is how I wanna spend
the rest of my life.

Thanks, man.
It feels like it's more me.

So a lot of people
have been giving

their word out to everybody.
- Exactly.

- We haven't done that.
- No.

So not only
will we not say your name,

we're not gonna get
other people to say your name.

That's something
you can count on from us.

I believe that, and you know
that we would do the same

for you guys.

As far as the game goes,

Tristan and I have had
our backs against the wall

the whole time.

Tristan and KellyAnne.

I have to go with you
and Tristan as well.

KellyAnne and Tristan
and Jodi and Benja.

KellyAnne, Tristan,
Benja, and Jodi.

What we need to do
is get the numbers

to throw in teams
that we need to get rid of.

It's our only shot
to make it to a final.

We have something in common

that we are both
in this spotlight

where people just keep on
kicking us.

Tristan, KellyAnne, me, Jodi,

we been having such a hard time
every nomination.

And it's, like, this kind of,

like, nightmare
Groundhog Day.

Okay, ready?
And, now push!

all: Oh!
- Trick shot!

[laughing]

Oh!
- Ooh.

You know, it's just, like,
give me a break.

Just, like, give me
a little bit of slack.

If we can come together...

If we can have
the votes and agree--

- Yeah.
- And agree and communicate.

We can get the votes
from the people

who we're not
really close to as well.

And, if you've seen,
there's definitely cracks

forming on the other side.

- Huge cracks.
- Big cracks.

USA is very strong.

And they have been
just really annoying.

Stop trying to make us feel
like idiots.

- Listen, she's--
- No one's trying--go ahead.

- It's touching a nerve.
- This is--

Because you know
what I'm saying.

You are not gonna talk
to me this way, period.

You think I think I'm special
because I wanna my own game?

Well, what you doing
this for then?

She said she don't know
who she wanna vote for.

Bro, don't tell me what to do.

Like, I really thought
he was gonna be different

and, like, stick by his word.

He's the messiest.

You know,
if we can break down

USA's alliance,
the rest of us have a chance

of actually being here
at the end.

Well, we just gotta watch out

and push at people
that, like, we can slowly

take down the ones
that are trying

to take us down
individually now.

I wanna make sure
that my people...

- Mm-hmm.
- Are set up.

- Mm-hmm.
- So, like, let's get us there.

are starting to look around

Basically, I'm just feeling
a little defeated

because I feel
like me and Danny are--

like, I feel
like out of this game,

we would get along really well.

And I feel like in this game,

he just has this idea
of how he wants to play it.

I have, obviously, my situation
and how I want to play it.

I feel like he's making it easy

for himself to become
public enemy number one

with, like,
just how it's all sho--

the cards have unfolded.

Team USA,
we've all been messing

with different people
and different alliances.

Like, Danny's been working
with Emily.

Sarah's been working
with Emily.

I've been working with Kaycee.
I've been working with Jordan.

Ben is a wild card.
Like, it's a shit show.

It would be nice to get
everybody on the same page

before another USA team
thrown into elimination

and it's too late.

I don't want you
to feel like this.

I don't want him
to feel like this.

Well, maybe if you were
a better partner, Tori.

Oh, my God.

Maybe if you were
a better partner, Tori,

he wouldn't be--aah!

Is it too late
to pick new partners?

- That's your partner.
- No, I don't claim him.

[chuckles]
"I don't claim him."

[chuckles]

What's gonna bode well
for us moving forward

is the fact that
you have kind of allowed me

to take the reins.

The ceiling for Team Justnanas

is pretty high.

Don't you?
- Agreed, yeah.

- Justnanas?
- I like that.

That was on the spot?
- Bustine?

- Don't like that.
- [laughs]

Maybe if you just listened
a little more like me

and you let your partner
make a decision...

- Shut up.
- Every once in a while...

- Don't take notes...
- These issues--

- From Bananas 'cause--

If I could--
if I could switch--

Is it easy being in a house

She's beautiful. She's your ex.

She's a champ,
and she deserves to be here.

We're having a little
Dr. Phil at the moment

with Amber.

Me and Kaz are trying
to form a new friendship

without too much clashing.

And I think
it's going quite well.

I am mature enough
to put my feelings aside.

And I'll give her
the benefit of the doubt

and an opportunity to prove
her loyalty to me once again.

When I first came
into the house,

I was scared

for myself

working with a partner

Welcome to the Castle
of Good Hope

here in Cape Town,
South Africa.

Today is going to be awesome

here on "The Challenge:
World Championship."

The legends are gonna have
the day off.

What?

It is going to be

the global MVPs alone

to win it for their team today.

- Oh!
- Wait, wait, wait.

Because you're not
gonna be racing

inside that giant castle.

You're gonna be racing
underneath it.

- Shut up.
- What?

- Oh, damn.
- Wait.

I knew it.

The legends
are gonna be locked up

right here in the moat.

- No, no, no.
- What?

Today's challenge
is called Tunnel Time.

Two teams will be competing
with each other

at the same time.

When I say go, you will race
up and over this knoll,

grab a light stick,
go inside the tunnels,

and you're gonna start searching

for the country flags.

You are gonna count
how many flags per country.

Then you're gonna
come back up,

and each country has
a corresponding number.

You're gonna solve
the equation.

The sum of that equation

equals the combination

for the lock
to unlock your partner.

Once you unlock your partner,

you'll both race
down this ladder

and ring that bell.

This is a timed event.

You'll have 45 minutes
to complete this challenge

before time runs out.

Team to get it done the fastest

is the winner,
safe from elimination,

making all the decisions,
good times.

The team
to get it done the slowest,

I'll see you in the arena.

Good luck, everyone.
- Whoo!

Whoo!

Ben is very good at math,

and he's really good
under pressure,

so we should have this
in the bag.

Kiki loves to scare
the shit out of me.

She always act
like she can't do something,

she's got a good memory.

we can get the win.
