TJ Lavin is the host of The Challenge: Rivals II in Thailand. For the ninth challenge, which originally aired September 4, 2013, the remaining reality TV show contestants played Rampage. To win, the contestants had to transfer balls from the top of one ramp to the top of another ramp. It was a tough challenge. Some contestants did better than others.
The female winners were Paula and Emily. The male winners were CT and Wes. Winning the challenge guaranteed CT and Wes's spot in the finals.
Knight and Preston came in last place. They were automatically sent to the elimination round. The females nominated Jordan and Marlon to compete against Knight and Preston. Since Johnny and Frank did not get voted into the elimination round, they will be in the finals.
Jordan and Marlon defeated Knight and Preston. Knight and Preston were sent home. Jordan and Marlon will compete against CT and Wes, and Johnny and Frank in the finals. The winning team will split $350,000. The second place team will split $35,000, and the third place team will split $15,000.
The women finalists will be determined on the next episode. St. Paul viewers can currently watch new episodes of The Challenge: Rivals II Wednesdays at 9;00 p.m. on MTV.
