The 12th episode of The Challenge: Double Agents, titled “Tinker, Tailer, Bunny, Spy,” dove right in where the previous episode left off on a cliffhanger and it did not disappoint. Warning: This article contains spoilers for the 12th episode of The Challenge: Double Agents which aired on March 3 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
The episode began with TJ Lavin announcing that the security breach was not the return of another cast member but was instead a double elimination with the team receiving the second-most votes in the house, Josh Martinez and Nany Gonzalez, joining Devin Walker and Gabby Allen in the crater. Chris “CT” Tamburello and Tula “Big T” Fazakerley found themselves with all the power, as they were able to choose both of those teams’ opponents.
Since it was a male elimination, CT asked Devin who he wanted to face and Devin called out Darrell Taylor without hesitation while CT put himself in the Crater to face Josh. In the “Dead Ringer” elimination, Devin and Darrell were neck-and-neck but the four-time champion was able to finish his puzzle quicker, defeating the Are You the One? alum. CT powered through his elimination, finishing the puzzle as Josh was still collecting his pieces.
After Josh and Devin’s eliminations, CT shocked the house by switching partners in an extreme way, calling Kam Williams down in excitement and angering Kyle Christie and Big T in the process. Darrell chose to stay with Amber Borzotra while Cory Wharton picked Gabby Allen and Big T ended up with Nam Vo. The rest of the episode saw the drama building with the fallout of CT’s enthusiastic partner switch-up.
The episode ended as the challenge, this one a night-time mission, was just beginning. Unfortunately, Ultimate Beastmaster contestant Nam Vo was deemed unable to compete due to a back injury and was medically disqualified from The Challenge, making Big T a rogue agent. That means she will not be able to compete in the next elimination, likely to be a female elimination day and one of the last chances for the women to win a gold skull.

Many People Reacted to the Drama in the House Between CT & Big T, Nam’s Medical DQ & the Daily Challenge

Fans also reacted to the scene, as well as the fallout during the episode. One fan wrote, “I just wanna hug Big T. That’s my baby and she doesn’t deserve any of this.” Another said, “Everyone is acting like Big T and CT weren’t one of three teams to have won two dailies this season already. Not forgetting the two puzzle dailies she dominated and could have won if the little mistakes weren’t made. Big T is not weak. Simply underrated.”
One fan said, “Why do I feel so bad for Big T. Logically, CT made a smart choice. Emotionally, he wrecked us all.” One added, “I have always been Team CT, but Big T totally didn’t deserve that.” One fan summarized, “It’s not a matter of CT being right or wrong about Big T being ready for a Final, or going back on his word & picking a partner he felt he had a better chance with. It’s the spectacle he made of picking Kam and humiliating Big T, followed by an awful apology.”
