Sorry for not recapping the last two episodes…I didn’t think they were worth writing about.

But I’m back to break down the biggest headlines from this week of the The Challenge 37.

Without further ado, LET’S GO!

Kyle Christie vs. The World

I don’t know if there’s ever been an episode that better encapsulates Kyle than this one.

After pulling a shady move and taking Sapphire’s dynamite after Ruby and Sapphire agreed to work together in the mission, it created a war between all three teams.

That move made Kyle the target for CT, who has never trusted him. This goes all the way back to War of the Worlds 2, when CT felt like he couldn’t work with Kyle and orchestrated his elimination.

I can’t say CT is without justification because obviously Kyle is a snake, but Kyle nailed it on the head that CT doesn’t have much room to talk.

CT is the most manipulative person on the show, as evidenced once again this week by him getting Tori onboard to work together in the mission. If anyone has reason to be distrustful in the CT/Kyle relationship, it should be Kyle. He threw him under the bus on War of the Worlds 2, he stole Kam from him on Double Agents, and in this episode he voted in Kyle despite telling him “I’m not coming for you”, even after a deliberation where Nelson volunteered to go in.

It made sense that Kyle was between Emanuel and Josh of who to call out. While Devin is probably the worst competitor left, Kyle’s reputation would be irreparable if he called out his best friend. And unless it’s something mental, you never want to face Nelson in elimination (I laughed out loud when Kyle said him and Nelson are basically the same as athletes).

Seeing the elimination, it was obvious that Josh was the right choice to call him out. This was much more competitive than their first matchup on Total Madness, but Kyle was once again able to pull off the victory.
