The Challenge: Total Madness Episode 1 Recap:

Episode 1 begins with host T.J. Lavin making an announcement about a surprising twist: “I’m done with people skating by. I’m done with people just going under the radar. This season, the only way to make it into a final is to win an elimination.”

The crew is then taken to a forest and Teej arrives in a tank. He informs them that this season will be completely solo. The first comp requires the contestants to solve puzzles and math while pushing heavy barrels. Jenny and Rogan win the round and proceed to the Tribunal.

During the voting session, there are a lot of accusations and slangs thrown at each other — which is the norm for any season of the show. The Tribunal chooses Jay and Asaf. They are asked to partake in a competition called the “Air Strike.” The contest is fair for both the contestants since Asaf is a dancer and Jay is a professional rock climber.

Both the guys hang on trapeze-like bars and they need to get the other person to fall two times. Asaf falls twice and sadly, his journey ends in the first episode itself. Well, this means that Jay gets to stay on when everyone thought that he would be the one to go. Yes, we have a solid newcomer here and we are excited to see how he fares in the next episodes.
