We had a matchup we have never seen before tonight on The Challenge Champs vs Pros, as it was Wes taking on Johnny Bananas! It sucks, as it was such a lame challenge and not one where they were battling it out big time on The Challenge MTV 2017, but who went home on The Challenge Champs vs Pros 2017 tonight? Get the details below in our recap for Episode 2!
Last week on Champs vs Pros, it was the premiere of this six-week event. The champions and pros both arrived and both ready for victory. We saw that Lolo Jones is a little crazy and really wanting to win for her charity, as if her charity matters more than others. It was a girls’ elimination and on this special, a Champ and Pro will go home each week! For the Champs, it was Ashley M. (losing team captain) taking on Veronica. Ashley took home the victory, which meant Victoria was eliminated. For the Pros, it was Lolo taking on Candice Wiggins. This one was honestly no competition, as Lolo crushed it and Candice was eliminated!
We see some drama tonight, as apparently Shawne Merriman and CM Punk had some beef on Twitter in the past, but they seem to talk through their issues. Then they all go out to play some flag football, but Lolo Jones can’t ever just have fun. Her and Lindsey Jacobellis have some issues and Lolo feels like she is her mother. Lolo said she can’t deal with this all and talks about leaving the show!
For this challenge, they will be wrapped head-to-toe in a casing like a hot dog! They will then wiggle themselves through a barbecue-style obstacle course. They will reach the end when they roll onto the hot dog bun mat. Some players have to carry a “bag of chips” in their mouth. If they drop it during the race, they will get two minutes added to their time. The team that gets all of their players on the mat the fastest will win.
The winning team captain gets $5,000 and the losing team captain automatically goes into Elimination. This is a guy’s elimination week on The Challenge Champs vs Pros. The captains are CM Punk for the Pros and Jordan for the Champions!
We have some tension during this one, as Johnny Bananas and CM Punk have some words with each other. Camila is pissed that Lindsey tried to block her on the mats. Shawne dropped the chips for the Pros, so two minutes added to their time. In the end, the Champs win this challenge and things are even 1-1 this season. Jordan is safe tonight and he wins $5,000 for his charity. CM Punk is the losing team captain, so he is heading to the Elimination!
It is automatically CM Punk for the Pros. His team votes for Shawne to join him and Shawne said this has been a long time coming. Jordan picks Wes to head to Elimination for the Champs. Wes wants to take on Bananas on this one. They vote and it is Johnny Bananas joining Wes in the Elimination on The Challenge Champs vs Pros!
For this elimination, Victor Cruz said he is taking away one of their senses. This is “Blindsided,” as they will be blindfolded. They have to be the first one to break their stick on their opponent. It is the best 2 out of 3 wins on this one. They get to choose one of their teammates to be their eyes for them, as they will tell them locations and what not!
The Pros are up first and CM Punk picks Louise and Shawne picks Darrell for their callers. CM Punk does a roll into the middle, but laying low hurt him on the first one and Shawne wins Round 1! However, CM Punk comes back strong and wins the next two rounds and he wins this challenge. Shawne is eliminated on The Challenge Champs vs Pros, but does get $1,000 for his charity!
The Champs are up next and Wes picks CT and Johnny Bananas picks Darrell for their callers. They have never battled each other, so here we go! This is such a lame challenge though, as the sticks seem to break on nothing! Johnny Bananas wins the first round by breaking the stick on Wes’ helmet. Wes comes back strong and wins the next two rounds, as Wes wins and that means Johnny Bananas has been eliminated on The Challenge Champs vs Pros, but he also gets $1,000 for charity!
The Challenge Champs vs Pros 2017 airs every Tuesday at 9/8c on MTV!
