MTV The Challenge: Double Agents cast

On January 27, the seventh episode of The Challenge: Double Agents aired, titled “Die Another Jay.” The episode had a little bit of everything for fans to enjoy, with some drama in the house between cast members, a new and different type of daily challenge and more. As expected, it had cast members and fans talking on social media from start to finish.

Warning: This article contains spoilers for the seventh episode of The Challenge: Double Agents which aired on January 27 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

The daily challenge this episode was wild, as contestants had to fight each other on a cargo net under a helicopter, although it was disappointing for fans to see most of the male contestants not compete in such a thrilling challenge. Later in the episode, a massive blow-out occurred at the house with Devin Walker angering Big Brother‘s Josh Martinez and Fessy Shafaat.

Despite that, the house ended up voting in Jay Starrett, who had alienated most of his friends with last episode’s power move. Leroy Garrett, the double agent along with his partner and the winner of the daily challenge Kaycee Clark, decided to put himself in to earn his gold skull. In a twist on the first episode’s elimination “Fire Escape,” Leroy powered through to beat Jay in a close race, sending the Survivor alum home.

Fans had a lot to say about these moments in the episode, including other intense reveals, such as TJ Lavin telling the male contestants who didn’t compete that their vote wouldn’t count. Although it had no impact on the result of this week’s house vote, that information will likely push contestants to compete in future daily challenges.
