War of the Worlds 2 Episode 8 Power Rankings

RANKINGS

Stray Thoughts

  • I’m glad that it was a double elimination this week, it’s time to start cutting the cast down. We’re eight episodes in and we still have 21 people left. The last time there was a two-team season, The Ruins, after eight episodes there were just eight people left (technically Kim and Dunbar were both eliminated at the start of episode nine, but still).
  • What would they have done if Theo and Georgia had switched? The numbers would have become 14 against 7, basically a US superteam versus Rogan, Joss, Kayleigh, Dee, Jenny, CT and Idris. Would they just continue on this path until Team US absorbed the entire Team UK, and we have like 17 winners? With Team UK still not having a legitimate win under their belt, I’m surprised they haven’t switched things up yet. The politics have been fun to watch this season, but at this point I think it’s a time for a change.
  • I thought both the mission and elimination were pretty average. While I liked seeing the teams work as a unit again in Crate Expectations, it was pretty boring and repetitive seeing the competitors build towers over and over again. And watching people run and carry things usually isn’t the most exciting thing to watch, which was the case in Running Riot despite both eliminations being close.
  • What is with the relic theme this season? I don’t know if I’ve ever heard the word relic on The Challenge before last season, and it’s already been used in four challenges and eliminations.
  • Episode Grade: B+
