10 Most Underrated Challenge Moments

  1. Bananas hit the water first instead of CT by a fraction of a second. If CT hits the water first, he must face Darrell in Balls In. I don’t know who wins that elimination because Darrell is a beast, and CT is a monster. Regardless, one of them would have to face Johnny Bananas in Knot So Fast, an elimination he has won in the past. Bananas, Darrell, or CT all could have realistically won Invasion, and that watershed moment tipped the luck scales towards CT. Amazing.
  2. Camila ties her rope around her neck in a very dangerous fashion in this elimination, though it allowed her to get the win over Cara Maria which forced a Laurel vs Cara elimination. Now, it’s unclear whether Camila was allowed to do such a thing, and because of that, if Camila faces Laurel in Balls In, then we likely get Laurel v Cara elimination in Knot So Fast where Laurel’s endurance was not great. Although, I don’t know if Laurel would have given up if she was facing Cara. If Cara stays in, she likely beats Laurel, and her entire Challenge career is viewed completely differently. She ties Wes for the elimination win record, makes her fifth final in nine seasons, and maybe wins the whole season. Or, Laurel refuses to lose, continues her streak and becomes 10–0 in eliminations, and cements her status as the most dominant player ever.
