We began the final challenge on The Challenge Invasion 2017 tonight, as Part 1 of The Challenge 2017 finale is here! This is a three-day challenge, so the pressure is on and the tensions were high tonight! Check out the details below in our The Challenge Invasion 2017 recap!
Last week on The Challenge MTV 2017, we had to wrap up The Fortress and that battle between CT and Darrell. This one was a good one, as both of them were killing themselves to get that rope tied up real good. CT did a great move and made it very small, but very tight. It worked, as Darrell struggled with it and CT won. He was moving on to the finals with Camila and then TJ Lavin surprised the Underdogs and said all four of them (Ashley, Nicole, Cory and Nelson) were going to the finals also! The final challenge kicked off, as TJ said it would last three days and no teams! They would be playing as individuals, but doing challenges with different partners along the way.
THE FINAL CHALLENGE DAY 1
We start back at that first challenge and the teams swimming and then working on the puzzles. Nelson is way behind everyone with the swimming. Camila gets it figured out right away and her and CT start paddling back. Then Ashley gets it and her and Nelson are paddling back. Nicole & Cory don’t seem to have a clue.
Both Camila & CT and Ashley & Nelson are working on the puzzle back at the barge. Camila & CT get it solved, so they are first place for Day 1. Ashley & Nelson aren’t far behind, as they finish the task. Nicole & Cory get timed out for the puzzle, so they get a penalty and then paddle to the barge. They finish the second puzzle and finish in third place for Day 1.
NO MORE VILLA
TJ Lavin said he would love to send them to the villa, but he heard they are bored with it. So, no more villa and they head to the shelter! When they arrive, they see things are not good there and part of winning this challenge is surviving living there!
TJ arrives and surprises the contestants with a Time Buster on The Challenge Invasion 2017. They will be working in their teams for Day 1 and will crack open coconuts and extract water from them. The team that extracts the most water in the allotted amount of time will get to add five minutes onto the time for one guy and one girl.
This one goes to Nicole & Cory! Cory gives the 5 minutes to CT, since he is in first place. Nicole said she was going to be fair on this one, as she gives the 5 minutes to Ashley! How is that fair? It was stupid, as she could have moved closer to Camila, but because she does not like Ashley, she tries to screw her over!
THE FINAL CHALLENGE DAY 2
With TJ arriving, he said their partners today will have to have strength, stamina and a strong stomach. The teams for Day 2 on The Challenge Invasion 2017 finale are Nicole & Nelson, Cory & Camila and CT & Ashley. For this challenge, they will race a mile into the jungle and complete a series of checkpoints. Once done, they will race back to TJ to complete their time.
For the first checkpoint, they have to each pick two plates of gross things and eat them. They include crickets, worms and horse urine fermented eggs! Nelson & Nicole finish first and then CT & Ashley. Camila is done and waiting on Cory and she is not happy!
The second checkpoint has them working together to cross a rope in the air. They will hold ropes along the way. If they fall off the rope, they have to start over. Nelson & Nicole get it correct on first try and head out. CT & Ashley fail twice, so they decide to take max penalty of 30 minutes and head to next checkpoint, as they grab more puzzle pieces. Cory & Camila try the rope and Camila falls. Cory is heartbroken, as he felt this was his chance to make up time. They decide to take the penalty and head out on The Challenge Invasion 2017.
For the third checkpoint, they have to swim out in a swamp and retrieve more puzzle pieces. Since this one is pretty basic, we don’t spend much time on it.
The final checkpoint has them moving different size puzzle pieces from different posts. They can only move one piece at a time and no larger piece can go on top of a smaller piece. This allows Ashley & CT to move ahead of Nicole & Nelson, that are doing a lot of yelling. Ashley & CT start running back to TJ, as Nicole & Nelson finish and are running also.
FIGURE IT OUT, CAMILA
Cory & Camila get to the final checkpoint. They have no communication and are both out of it. They end up getting an incomplete, as they did the task wrong and put the pieces on the wrong pole! They are both frustrated and Camila feels all the pressure is on her, as she is the Champion. However, she said she wants a partner to help her through it. On Day 1, she said she did it all herself and CT held her back and wished it was an individual challenge. So, which do you want???
That is where things ended for tonight, so until next week when the winners are crowned!
The Challenge Invasion 2017 airs every Tuesday at 9/8c on MTV!
