What is ‘The Challenge’ finale this year?

T.J. Lavin has hosted The Challenge since season 11. He claims this is the most challenging final he has ever seen with a 50-mile course. In the first half of “The Death Path,” the contestants must bike and run a 24 mile, figure eight shaped course. They have to complete four laps and five checkpoints. The checkpoints contain everyone’s favorite thing, puzzles. If the competitor does not complete the obstacle, they time out at 20 minutes.

Who lost ‘The Challenge’ last night?

Georgia ran half of one lap and completed a checkpoint, and then she collapsed while riding the bicycle. She was so dehydrated that she began asking about Bear, a previously eliminated competitor. The medical van came to her assistance and disqualified her from the competition.


Mattie and Cara Maria were neck-and-neck until Mattie felt like she “couldn’t feel her legs anymore.” She hugged Ninja Natalie and told her she could no longer continue. Then, Mattie sat down until T.J. approached her, eliminating her from the competition.

Who is still in the running for ‘The Challenge’ $1 million grand prize?

Currently, sitting in the first place is Theo (UK). He had a little fling with Kam until she was sent home, and has remained relatively quiet in the house. Now, The Silent Threat looks to win the prize money to buy a house.

Wes (USA) is in second place and has played his “best political game” up until this point. He had an alliance with Hunter from before they came into the house, and they both are in the finale. Wes recently got married, and he wants the money to have a baby who can compete on future challenges.

Turbo (Turkey) is currently in third place. He considered giving up when his leg was in pain; however, he pushed himself. Turbo has been a strong competitor, winning several challenges this season.

Ninja Natalie (USA) is in fourth place even though she passed out on the course. After she regained her consciousness, the medics cleared her to continue. Ninja gets her nickname from her time on American Ninja Warrior.

Cara Maria (USA) is currently in fifth place. She lost her number one ally and boyfriend, Paulie, last episode. After everyone finished the first half, they received IVs. However, Cara Maria has an extreme fear of “anything medical” and refused, possibly putting her at a disadvantage.

Hunter (USA) is sitting in the last place. He has been a quiet competitor this season, secretly kept safe by Wes. He won The Challenge the previous season with Ashley who had the decision of keeping the million dollars or splitting half with Hunter. Ashley chose to keep all the money, so that is Hunter’s motivation for his finale.
