Going into the ultimate, group U.S. consists of: Paulie, Cara Maria, Leroy, Ninja Natalie, Kam, Ashley and Zach, whereas group U.Okay. has: Rogan, Dee, CT, Jordan and Tori. The first leg of the ultimate problem is a 16 mile race by the jungle, made up of 4 laps, with a checkpoint on the finish of each lap. The groups should carry a laden gurney — 20 lbs. for each particular person on the group — all through the race, which suggests U.S. has 40 extra lbs. on their gurney. However, solely 4 folks can maintain the gurney at a time, and the members can solely be switched out on the checkpoints, so technique is essential!

At this level, group U.Okay. has a big lead, however they’re stopped on the trail by host TJ Lavin. He informs them that CT “clearly manhandled” the U.S. group’s gurney whereas making an attempt to get by them on the final leg. This is in opposition to the foundations, in order that they’re compelled to cease the place they’re for TEN minutes.

Meanwhile, Zach, who’s the one member of group U.S. that’s NOT in an alliance with everybody else, blows up at his teammates for eliminating stronger gamers on their group all season lengthy.
With all the difficulty on group U.S., the U.Okay. group finishes their ten minute penalty earlier than their opponents may even catch up. Paulie’s physique continues to close down and cramp up. Despite Cara’s hesitations, she joins her group in persevering with the race, as Paulie struggles to maintain up. The episode ends with him practically handed out on the ground of the jungle, and we’ll have to attend till subsequent week to see the way it performs out for him.
