The Storm Before the Storm
August 17

The male teams of C.T. & Adam and Johnny & Tyler are already sent into the jungle, after a controversial vote was conducted.

As the previous episode was nearing the end, the challengers were at a nightclub where Adam's mob friends turn on him and try to get inside his head before the jungle. C.T. doesn't want to talk about his past on-camera confrontations with Adam. Laurel and Jenn are worrying about C.T. and Adam as their rematch with Johnny and Tyler grows near.

Final Jungle Game: T-Bone

There are two big dirt half-pipes with an intersection. Each contestant has a rack of five balls and they must transfer them to their teammate's ball rack. The first team to complete this task wins.

Johnny is assigned the yellow balls while Tyler has the black ones. And C.T. is assigned the blue balls while Adam has the red balls.

After the game begins, Adam fumbles forcing C.T. to plow the opposition in an effort to buy time. But after a very close finish...Johnny and Tyler have finally managed to send C.T. and Adam home.

And now we have the six pairs of finalists for the final challenge.

Johnny & Tyler
Leroy & Michael
Kenny & Wes

Cara Maria & Laurel
Paula & Evelyn
Jenn & Mandi

City living is getting boring for the challengers as they are now transferred to Patagonia. When they get there, Leroy and Mike talk strategy while Mandi and Laurel lecture Cara Maria on Wes. Cara Maria then stands up to Wes after not hearing some nice things about her.

On the morning of the finals, most of the challengers are fine, but not so for Tyler and Jenn. Then medic Martin showed up and Tyler that he had a gastrointestinal virus and he wouldn't be medically sound to compete. Buy Tyler and Jenn have not come this far to quit, and they go against the medic's recommendations.


The six final teams will start out by being dragged underwater by a boat for 200 yards. Then fter getting inside their kayaks, they must paddle for three miles before running the rest of the course (which includes the checkpoint puzzles).

We start the race off with the girls first and then the guys have their turn next. The final challenge concludes next time.
