The Challenge: USA spoilers from Reddit give clues as to what’s going down in episode 8. The remaining women competing this season are Cashay, Alyssa, Angela, Cayla, Desi, Justine, and Sarah. The remaining men are Leo, Ben, Danny, Domenick, David, Enzo, and Tyson. Sleuths on Reddit believe the daily challenge for episode 8 involves water. Photos shared by the network show the teams hosing down opposing teams as they attempt to walk across the course.

Additionally, it seems a “game-changing twist” is about to happen. The photos shared by the network show men and women working alongside each other, which could mean the twist pairs male players with male players, and women with women. Or, all bets might be off with teams. The players might begin competing as individuals leading up to the finale. Spoilers from Reddit indicate individuals will now enter the arena and compete one-on-one for their spot in the game.

So, who heads home in episode 8? The Challenge: USA spoilers from Reddit note single eliminations likely begin in episode 8. And according to a flow chart created by a fan, the next player to head to elimination is Leo Temory from The Amazing Race. He gets taken out by Enzo Palumbo from Big Brother.

Leo already won two eliminations in episodes 5 and 7, so he’s more than proven himself already. But it seems he’s no match for Enzo. Enzo won an elimination in episode 6 already, and he wins again in episode 8.

What game do Leo and Enzo play against each other? According to fans, it’s likely Hall Brawl — one of the most grueling physical eliminations. In Hall Brawl, players stand at opposite ends of a thin hallway and try to run to the other side and ring a bell before their opponent — but they have to get through their opponent first.

“I hope Leo is not in Hall Brawl,” a fan noted. “That would be messed up.”

“We’ve seen images from the first trailer showing it to be the case so … sorry,” another fan wrote.

The final is coming soon
