On the last episode before the final, The Challenge steps up the level of athletic competition and the cast steps up the level of politicking. In the process, we got more of the Leroy-Kam love story, the Fessy-Kaycee friendship story, and a lot of one-liners from Kyle along the way. Zan and Dondrick discuss all that went down on the episode that proved to be one of the strongest of the season so far. As always, the brothers debate whose stock went up, whose stock went down, and look ahead to a competitive finals that should happen next week. With only 4 teams remaining, it could be one of the closest races in recent memory.
