The World Championship
has been turned upside down,

as eight out of 14 teams

fight to remain in the game,

make it into the final,

and earn the coveted title
of first-ever

Challenge World Champion.

In the last challenge,
Ripcord Roulette,

teams made some unexpected
last minute changes.

Ben, he is medically unable
to continue,



so, Kaycee,
we're losing you as well.

Okay.
[all exclaim]

I've been so unwell
the past couple weeks.

I would love to switch places
with Kaycee

So, I'm pregnant.

That's fine with me.

Kaycee, go ahead and join
your new teammate, Troy.

You are now representing Australia.

♪ ♪

Tristan and KellyAnne
took the win.

[cheering]

Jodi, Benja, unfortunately,
Ripcord Roulette

just wasn't your game.



I'll be seeing you both
in the elimination round.

[screaming]
[laughs]

Our vote's going
to Troy and Kaycee.

- Troy and Kaycee.
- Troy and Kaycee.

Newly formed Australian
team, Troy and Kaycee,

were sent into elimination

against challenge losers,

Argentina's Benja and Jodi...

[air horn blares]
Go!

both: It's yellow.
- Okay.

- Ohh!
- I'm sorry, I'm sorry.

It's okay.

Check.
[air horn blares]

And proved to be
a dream team,

as they dominated
the elimination,

wiping Argentina
from the game completely.

- Bye, guys.

Viva Argentina!

The game is getting
tighter and tighter.

It's been an emotional
roller coaster.

But you know what?
I'm still in the game.

I'm representing a whole
entire different country.

But, like, I know
who my people are

in this game.

It comes down to
which other pairs

you have relationships with.

Troy has had some history

with some of his other
Australians in this game.

You're a new team
on the block, Troy and Kaycee.

That's a cute way
to justify it.

And we vote for Kiki
and Darrell.

Damn, the Aussie's going in.

Yes, and Emily--sketch,
after sketch, after sketch.

But you know what?
Let's get 'em out.

♪ ♪

We have obviously been
just in turmoil

not, like, personally,
but game-wise, right?

Like, it's just never
been a personal thing.

I think you're a great person.

I think we've just clashed
a lot in this game.

Whatever you want, Tori.

My hands are up.

If your ex-fiancée was here,

I would help you save her.

I'm not gonna say her name
right now.

She's one of my closest
friends. I'm not gonna do it.

I can't hear--I couldn't
really understand you.

I don't--don't even worry
about it no more.

Okay. Like, I wish you
never picked me as a partner.

You could've had a way easier
game if you didn't.

You have two people
who you are trying

to make sure you keep safe
at this moment.

And then I have Sarah.

And then we've also been
working with Emily and Yes.

I get what you're saying,
but I think

that we both realize that we're
at a point in this game

where we have been--
and this has been

a point of contention--

our friendships and the
conversations that we have

that we rely on more than
talking to each other

because we've never actually
come together.

- Okay.
- We have to come

to some conclusion that's
gonna hurt one of the sides.

Me and Tori still have not
found a way

to get on the same page.

As of right now,
Tori has two number ones--

Jordan and Kaycee.

Can't look out for both,
and if somebody wants

to take a shot at them
and they can't,

their next best option is
taking a shot at me and Tori.

This has me more nervous than
I've ever been in this game.

I'm gonna have to
think about it.

Or I'm gonna have to
drink about it.

At this stage in the game,

Danny and Sarah keep doing
all they can

to not vote for Emily and Yes.

But that is screwing up
the rest of the alliance.

Danny and Sarah,
ride with me, here,

and just trust
that it's gonna work out.

You are with us,
so you need to stand with us.

♪ ♪

- I'm with Jordan.
- Yeah.

And everyone's like, yeah--

I wanna be on that side,
as well.

So KellyAnne and I lost
two strong alliances,

and everything has flipped
on its head.

♪ ♪

Kaz and I won
the UK Challenge together,

but for some reason,

we haven't had a talk about
game in this challenge.

Let's make an alliance,
let's work together,

let's support each other.

So I need to
get out of this funk,

make some friends,
and build a strong team.

You always have to do
what's best for you.

And I get that.
- Yeah.

I just don't want you
to think

I'll just rule Kaz out.
Like, she's with Jordan.

I can't talk to her.

I never needed to tell you,

but you are genuinely
my friend in here,

and I care about you.

Because people just assume
because I'm with Jordan

that it's, like,
always Jordan's decision.

But I'm also my own person.
- No, I--

And I also stand my ground,
and I've told Jordan

I'm not voting for Tristan
and KellyAnne.

Yeah, yeah.

If you ever had to
say my name,

just tell me before, or--
- Yeah, of course I would.

But, like, if there's any--
- It might get to it

where I have to say
against you.

But it should never be, like,
done sneakily

or anything like that.
- No--

- I know.
- We won the last one together.

- I know.
- I do thank you.

I needed that.
- No worries.

- I appreciate you.
- I've got you, always, man.

You know that.
- You do.

I feel like if Amber
hadn't have decided to leave--

- We would've been fine.
- We would've been fine.

No, we would great--
we were the greatest.

So that just means
we just have to reevaluate

and continue to stick
to the same plan.

♪ ♪

Australia is all
but broken up,

but KellyAnne and I
have got along really well

from the very start
of this competition.

And I think it's because
we both

wear our hearts on our sleeve.

When I first started
the Australian Challenge,

I thought that I just
wanted to be there

to prove to everyone that I'm
not just some bubbly bimbo.

And the winner is Kiki.

After going through
that experience,

I realized how much more
the win meant for me.

I have gone through,
you know,

a pretty troubled childhood,

I've lived through
domestic violence.

It really opened my eyes
to just how much

I wanna prove to all the young
women out there

if they wanna do something,

the only person that needs
to give them permission

is themselves.

The good thing is
is that you know

that Darrell and I
have got your back,

and I know that
you've just got our back.

I know we do, for sure.
It's just, we need--like, now--

We've guessed a lot before,
and we're just gonna

have to work real hard,
but now--

I feel like people's cards
are now being shown

and it's now making
a lot more--

The cards keep getting shown,
and they're just, like,

being more clear.

to kick things off.

Thanks, TJ, and
congratulations, contestants,

on being part of
this incredible challenge.

Just like you'll
soon experience,

"Transformers: Rise of the
Beasts" is all about

relying on your team.

The Autobot are back.

[transforming pulses]

Now, they must join forces
with the Maximals.

This is the first time
these ultimate beasts

will crash onto
the big screen,

and they do not disappoint.

no other thrill ride.

will be pumping.

which was created

to put you in the driver's seat
of our movie.

Roll out.

- Yeah!
- Sick.

Transformers?
I love Transformers.

- Yeah, sick.
- So now I'm about to be

a part of the "Transformers"
franchise.

Shout out to "The Challenge."
I'm excited.

Just like these machines,
today's challenge

is more than meets the eye.

It's called Highway Hijacking.

♪ ♪

And we're doing it
"Transformers" style.

Here's how it works:
each player on the team

will have a specific job.

One of you is gonna jump
on the back of that truck,

inspired by Optimus Prime,

while it is travelling
over 50 miles per hour.

Another truck is gonna
come alongside of you.

That other truck has a key
that you need.

Jump onto that truck,
grab the key, jump back,

race to the front,
unlock the box,

and hit a detonator.

While one player
is doing that,

the other teammate
is gonna be strapped inside

the four-wheel drive
Super Buggy

like something
out of this world,

another robot in disguise.

When your teammate hits
that detonator,

you will get a signal
that it is time to go.

When I say go,
I mean slam on the gas

and blast through
the back wall of that truck

as fast as you can.

The detonator
will trigger a blast

that will release
a massive ramp

and simultaneously
flash a green go light

for the driving teammate.

That teammate will immediately transform

by hitting the pedal
to the metal,

smashing through
the back wall,

and racing to the finish line.

You and your partner
are gonna have to work

like a well-oiled machine,
both inside and out,

to pull this one off.

This challenge is not just
about succeeding.

It's about crushing
your competition

and unleashing
your inner beast.

It's like a "Transformers"
movie.

I feel bad for everyone
that's gone home so far

because they miss out

on the sickest challenge
I've ever seen.

The team to do all
of this the fastest

will win this challenge
and get one step closer

to the championship title
and $500,000.

you're gonna race it
over the beams,

over the deck,

racing back
to your puzzle pieces,

picking one up
and doing the same thing

over and over again until you
grab all of the puzzle pieces.

Once you've grabbed 'em all,

you'll ditch the chopsticks
and start building your puzzle.

their puzzle

will win tonight's
elimination round
