Every week this season, I’m going to be breaking down the biggest headlines from The Challenge season 37.

Without further ado, LET’S GO!

CT’s Greatest Daily Challenge Moment

This is why you don’t let CT get this far in a season.

I’ve said all season how dumb these guys are for letting CT skate by for so long, and now he’s come out with victories in back-to-back mission wins on male elimination days, putting him just one step away from the final.

It was yet another daily challenge win for CT (he said in the episode that it was his 55th, but Challenge wiki has him at 56. The one variance is likely his redemption house win on Dirty 30, which isn’t really a mission win in my opinion).

It’s not hyperbole to say this was the greatest one of his career.

I went through all of his daily wins and came up with my top five for him:

5. Heart Rate Bungee- Inferno II (technically his team didn’t win but he won the Life Shield when he got his heart rate down to a ridiculous 54 beats per minute)

4. Hold That Pose- Free Agents

3. Flying Leap- The Duel

2. X Marks the Spot- Dirty 30

  1. Dead Drop- Spies, Lies & Allies

Given the stakes of it being right before the final, and the fact that he literally carried his team on his back to victory even with a numbers disadvantage, to me this goes down as CT’s greatest daily challenge win.

His balance was just on another level from everyone else, even on a cast that includes a dancer and a surfer.

In classic Kyle fashion, he got dragged to victory by doing absolutely nothing, and Emy’s decision to hitch her wagon to Uncle CT is looking smarter by the minute.

It’s comical how much better CT is than the rest of the cast, and it seems like he’s well on his way to his fifth championship.

Logan Goes Home (Hallelujah!)
