On February 24, the 11th episode of The Challenge: Double Agents aired, titled “An Inconvenient Goof,” and it’s safe to say it was a rollercoaster from beginning to end. Warning: This article contains spoilers for the 11th episode of The Challenge: Double Agents which aired on February 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
This week’s episode featured an exciting daily challenge that had no politics involved and came down to both team members performing well. From a moving speedboat, competitors had to grab onto their rope which was hanging from a helicopter and hold on until the “drop zone,” at which point they’d jump into the water and swim to a platform.
Everyone was shocked to see that Chris “CT” Tamburello and Tula “Big T” Fazakerley not only won the challenge but dominated the competition, with Big T’s surprise reveal that she was on a swim team in school. CT was extremely pleased with the win as the presence of a male rogue agent indicates that the elimination will likely be a male elimination day, meaning the Challenge legend might get his shot at going down into the crater to earn his gold skull.
The house deliberations and voting was split pretty evenly between Devin Walker and Gabby Allen or Josh Martinez and Nany Gonzalez, but in the end, Darrell Taylor stuck with his newfound Big Brother alliance, sending Devin and Gabby into the crater. The episode also saw Olympian Lolo Jones bow out of the competition, saying that she felt discouraged at not being able to perform and not getting her chance in an elimination.
The episode ended on a double cliffhanger, first because the elimination did not yet take place so it’s unclear who will face Devin and Gabby in elimination and who will win, but also because the security breach teased in the preview for this episode came in the final minutes, so fans will have to wait another whole week to find out this next twist.
