The Challenge: Total Madness Episode 8 Recap:
The first round in ‘The Challenge’ episode 8 is played as individuals. Each contestant must run through a room filled with foam and then recap the lights that they had seen, which had been flashed in sequential order. Once they do this, they again need to enter the room and put the colored disks, in the right order, on a pole. The girl and guy to do this first form the Tribunal. And the winners for the round are Mattie and Wes. They choose Bananas to be their third partner.
It’s double elimination, so we will have four contenders, who are Jordan, Fessy, Nelson, and Bear. In Purgatory, the challenge is pole wrestle. The first face-off is between Jordan and Fessy. The players need to hold on to the same pole and attempt at pulling it away from the other. The one who wins twice wins the entire round. Finally, we have the winners — Fessy and Nelson! So, they have red skulls, alongside Rogan, Jenna, Jenny, and Dee. They are all going to the finals.
Although Jordan and Bear are asked to pack their bags and say their farewells, we really must admire the former’s efforts in this round. He already had a shoulder injury and still decides to go ahead. Even after the first round, when he is being checked by the medics, he goes back early to continue in the contest!
