Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Cutthroat, Week 8 Power Rankings

“I don’t even know what’s going on. They finally just let me out of my cage and I haven’t eaten yet.” —C.T.

Well, C.T. finally made his much-anticipated return to The Challenge this week, even if MTV decided to end the episode without showing anything he did.

The challenge between Dunbar and Johnny was slightly less epic, and more disconcerting to the Challengers, as Johnny sent Dunbar home (as I did not predict). This, of course, left the Challengers with the less-than-intimidating roster that Kenny described heading into the last challenge before the final.

KellyAnne smartly realized that, as this team is probably not going to win any challenges, her best chance at adding to her own bank account is to beat Susie and get her money, so she volunteered to go into the Ruins—if, that is, it’s up to her. Continue reading
