Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Rivals, Week 7 Power Rankings

“I’ve mastered the art of losing right before the final, but now we’re officially in the final.” —Paula

 

“I would have never thought I’d see the day when the only person to really have my back was my worst enemy… but she’s got me.” —Cara Maria
