Which team won the Cryptic Crossbow Challenge?

For the competition, the teams had to swim across a lake and collect letters. Then, they had to place the letters on a board and figure out four-lettered words. Next, a player is launched into the lake from a giant crossbow to retrieve a cryptic puzzle and solve it using the words from the board.

Wes, an excellent swimmer who boasts about it every time there’s a swimming challenge, came down with an illness. However, he still outperformed everyone and retrieved his letter considerably faster than his teammates.

Group One for Team USA finished first, allowing the second group to collect their letters. Even though everyone on the American team continually fought for the leader position, they came up with a successful strategy to place their letters on the board first, and then launch Jordan from the crossbow, while solving the puzzle while he swam.

Once again, Team USA pulled out the win. When T.J. asked who would lead the tribunal, Kam immediately spoke up and nominated herself, rubbing Tori the wrong way. She chose Ashley and Paulie to join her, upsetting the latter because he wanted to be protected next week when it’s a guy elimination.

Who did Team UK nominate for the Proving Ground?

Before participating in the challenge, Jenny, a fitness trainer and bodybuilder, led a small workout class. She was impressed by Georgia’s athleticism, but Jenny noticed Big T couldn’t always keep up.

Therefore, Team UK was already contemplating throwing the London native into elimination. During the challenge, the team also noticed that Esther wasn’t in the best physical shape.

Wanting to give the girls a heads up, Georgia notified Big T that the team was considering her and Esther for nominations. While they discussed it as a group in front of the tribunal, Kayleigh asked her team why only Big T and Esther were in the conversation for elimination and not two other rookies, Jenny and Nicole.

The girls offered to throw their names in the mix, but ultimately the majority voted in Big T. She then asked the tribunal to give her anyone except for Jenny to compete against in eliminations.

Who went home in ‘The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2’ Episode 2?

Before nominations and the Proving Ground, Kayleigh started a rumor that Georgia thinks she’s “untouchable” because of her incredible performance last season as a rookie.

Killa Kam confronted Georgia about what her friend said, but the Love Island star denied it. Georgia later went outside by the pool and got upset because she felt like she couldn’t protect herself against the bad things people were saying about her in the house.

Several Team USA members wanted to vote in a big UK player to potentially eliminate them early in the game. Because Georgia is one of Team UK’s strongest competitors and was at the center of drama, the tribunal unanimously chose the Essex-native to take on Big T.

For the Proving Ground elimination, the girls had to push a dumpster filled with rocks and a torch on top to their opponent’s side and light their fuse. Josh, on Team USA but romantically involved with Georgia, loudly rooted for her, annoying some of his team members.

After an almost two-hour-long grueling battle, Georgia eventually beat Big T. As the winner, she could choose to switch teams. However, Georgia made it clear she would never. Who will go home next? Keep watching The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2 Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on MTV.
