Double Agents rookie girls have trust issues

Amber M. went into a room to talk with Gabby Allen, Chris “CT” Tamburello, and Devin Walker. Devin sarcastically told her that Amber Borzotra screwed her over with the votes.

Nany Gonzalez talked to Kam Williams about wanting to face Gabby rather than Theresa, who beat her in an elimination before.

Amber M. went and confronted Amber B. about telling her one thing and then voting differently. Amber M. told her at the next deliberation she’s going to vote for her.

Ahead of the next daily mission, Cory Wharton talked to Theresa about her kids. Theresa admitted to having post-partum depression and anxiety issues. Cory said he understood because of how his girlfriend was. In his confessional, he said he was happy his teammate was opening up to him more.

Amber B. spoke with Kaycee Clark, saying it felt like “mean girls” in the house right now. In another segment, Gabby confronted Amber B. about what she had been saying. Gabby told Amber B. it’s clear they don’t trust one another.

Daily challenge is Mission Interrogation

The competitors headed to the next daily challenge. Host TJ Lavin revealed Mission Interrogation, a game where competitors had to hold onto bars up above the frigid water. They had to answer trivia questions, and if they answered wrong, TJ pressed a button to lean them forward a bit over the water.

The objective was to answer questions correctly but also not to fall into the water. Competitors who answered a question right got to “sabotage” an opponent by choosing them to get leaned forward a bit more. The competitor who answered the most questions correctly and held on longest would win.

TJ revealed that Burger King sponsored the mission, and the winners would receive $5,000 each along with another special prize.

Darrell won for the first group of competitors, outlasting Devin. In the second group of competitors, Kam was disqualified for grabbing the sides of the rig they were standing on despite TJ warning her about it several times. Therefore, Nam Vo became the winner.

TJ revealed that when it came down to who answered the most questions correctly and held on longest, Darrell won. That meant that Darrell and Amber B. were the new Double Agents power team and won $5,000 each.

They also received two briefcases containing Burger King VIP cards, and TJ said they’ll receive Whopper sandwiches for life.

House deliberation and secret voting

After the daily mission, Amber B. talked to Kam and Nany about who to put into elimination. Theresa’s name came up as the top choice. Nany also spoke to Amber B. during the cast’s night at the club, telling her Theresa would be tougher to go against in the final.

In a side confessional, Amber B. spoke about the drama she had with Theresa during the helicopter mission. Amber B. admitted that getting Theresa out might be her best move right now. She talked to Gabby about their earlier argument and said she didn’t want to send her in.

Amber B. also spoke with Kaycee about putting in Theresa. Kaycee said she’d go in against her if Amber B. doesn’t want to.

The house meeting took place. Nobody volunteered to go in, but Theresa asked Nany if she was planning to go in this week. Nany asked her if she had something to say, but Theresa shook her head.

Amber M. admitted that she was voting in Theresa. Not much else was said at deliberation, so they all went and voted.

Darrell and Amber B. went to the private room to see how the voting went. They saw most of the house votes went towards Theresa and Cory, as expected.

Who went home and who won a Gold Skull?

At The Crater, TJ revealed that Theresa and Cory were the compromised agents, so they joined him down on the ground level. TJ asked Darrell and Amber if they wanted to come down to earn a Gold Skull, but Amber passed on it.

Instead, Amber and Darrell sent in Kaycee and Leroy. TJ trolled the guys a bit before revealing it was a female elimination with Operation Snapping Point as the event.

The two ladies were harnessed together and had to run to try to grab their metal rings on the ground. Once they got a ring, they had to pull themselves to get over and place it on a post. There were three rounds, and the first competitor to get three rings on different posts would win.

Theresa struggled a lot in the elimination. Kaycee pushed through and was able to get two of three rings, with Theresa getting zero. In the end, Kaycee placed her third ring on a post to pick up the win and get her Gold Skull.

When decision time arrived, Kaycee chose to stay with Leroy as her partner. Since Theresa was sent home, Cory became partnered with Rogue Agent Amber M. as the show closed out.

The Challenge: Double Agents airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on MTV.
