In the challenge Tunnel Time,

the pressure was on
the global MVPs

that they could step up
and get the win for their team

because the challenge Legends
were locked up.


Emily and Yes
absolutely killed it.


Unfortunately for Kaz,
she couldn't get it done.

So Kaz and Jordan, I'll
be seeing you in The Arena.

During nominations, KellyAnne
mustered up the numbers

to get all American teams
sent in.

- I'm not joining their side.
- I know that.

- Bananas, Justine.
- Bananas and Justine.

- Sarah and Theo.

the challenge winners,

Australia's Yes and Emily,

sent Bananas and Justine
against Kaz and Jordan.

The UK's Kaz and Jordan's
attention to detail

paid off with the win.

Another challenge Legend, gone.

Jordan and Kaz got it done.

Let's go, baby.

They're still here going

And we're back!
That was all you.

No, it was you.
You saw the sun.

No, you literally

- No, no!

- Well done, guys.
- You got it.

We're gonna have
to work much harder now

with Justine and Bananas gone,
but it's doable.

I feel like, you know,
us losing a number like that,

it's really gonna come down
to now us needing to win.

KellyAnne and Tristan
set up a plot

to break up Team USA
and our alliance.

Chucking them in would
be the sweetest revenge.

UK is OK today.

KellyAnne and I
have successfully pulled off

one of the
biggest moves so far,

but I am not feeling good.

This is something

I do not need
to be dealing with right now.

I need to be
100% in this game

physically and mentally
in order to succeed,

and right now, I'm not.

I'm gonna try not

Tristan, Ben, and I haven't
been feeling our bests.

We've been struggling physically.

I'm feeling nauseous.

I'm feeling--I have

I'll push through

And I'm hoping that
after this next one,

I feel like
I can't catch a break.

I'm just sick.

I think Amber and I are in
a good spot at the moment.

I just hope she can
get over her sickness

and be physically 100%.

But to be honest,
I'll take her physically at 80%

over a lot of other people anyway.

So Amber,
just keep trucking along.

I love your effort, and that's
all I would ever ask of you.

It's just annoying.

Tristan is really sick,

that would be equally as good.

All right,
today's challenge is awesome.

What is a world championship

without my favorite game, trivia?


So today, you are
playing Ripcord Roulette.


To begin,
you and your partner

are gonna be 21 stories high

off the side of a building.

Then I'm gonna ask you
a series of questions.

You get the question wrong,

you will have to pull one of
five ripcords in front of you.

Four of those
ripcords are dummies.

They don't do anything.

there's one ripcord on there

that will send you
plummeting all the way down.

Oh, and by the way,
if you get it right,

you get to tell somebody else
to pull a ripcord.


I've been studying a lot of
trivia, and I'm very prepared.

I'm not prepared for that.

And at the end of this,
we will have two more heats,

a winners' heat
and a losers' heat.

The team to lose
the losers' heat,

I'll be seeing
you in The Arena.

The team to stay up there
the longest in the winning heat

will win today's challenge
and be the only team

safe from elimination.

Go get 'em, Darrell.
Good luck. [laughs]

I don't like heights.

All right, gentlemen,
walk out.

Let's go.

I can't walk out there.
There's no fucking way.

Hell no.

Welcome back, baby.

All right, tonight,
you are playing Spin Me Round.

As you can see,

there are two giant,
rotating platforms

right here in the middle
of The Arena.

There are also two walls that
are blocking two answer keys

because your goal is
to see those answer keys,

relay that information
to your partner.

Now, here's
how it's gonna work.

To begin, one of you
is gonna be placed

on that rotating platform.

Then, your partner is gonna
be in charge of spinning you

around and around so that
you can get top dead center,

see over that wall,
and see the answer key.

Once you see that answer key,

you will relay that information
to your partner,

who will then have
to let go of the handle.

You're gonna start
spinning around and around.

Then, they're gonna start

recreating what you yell to them.

The first team to recreate
their answer key perfectly

will win
tonight's elimination round

and stay in the game,
going for their $1/2 million

and that title
of Challenge World Champion.

Good job, Troy.

another triangle inside.

- And it's pointing

to the left.

a method. That's smart.

A, B, C, D, E, F, G.

Left is the second one.

kind of, like, pink, red stuff.
