Warning: This article contains spoilers for the next few episodes of The Challenge: Double Agents.
Tonight will see the return of The Challenge to MTV after a one-week break for the holidays. Four players have already been sent packing, one of which was due to a disqualification. Ashley Mitchell, Joseph Allen, and Wes Bergmann all lost during challenges in the crater, while Nicole Zanatta was disqualified for a shoulder injury during the last challenge.
This evening will see another disqualification, which could take effect if anyone else gets the boot. According to The Challenge Vevmo page, Olivia "Liv" Jawando will end up going home due to the injury she sustained in Episode 3. It seemed like all would be well after she was placed in a sling and later got home from the hospital, but her injury will be severe enough to keep her from competing. Liv's DQ does not mean everyone is safe tonight, however.
Insider Pink Rose has Nelson Thomas listed as the next person to be eliminated from the show after Liv. It's not clear if the elimination is changed from a girls' night to a guys' night after Liv is sent packing, but it looks like Nelson could also be leaving the show tonight if there is a competition in the crater.
Nelson will battle pal Faysal "Fessy" Shafaat in the next elimination in a variation of Hall Brawl. The setup was teased in the previews at the end of the last episode, and unfortunately for Nelson, he will be on the receiving end of the Mack truck that is Fessy. The Big Brother alum will come out victorious and earn his Gold Skull, qualifying him to run the final.
The next few episodes are going to contain a lot of unexpected events as another player will walk away from the game to deal with family issues back in the U.S. Survivor winner Natalie Anderson decided to step away from Double Agents to take care of matters with her family, which forced the producers to make a last-minute decision.
At some point in the next few weeks, Ashley will return due to Nicole and Liv's DQs and Natalie's forfeit. The producers decided to bring Ashley back to help balance things out, but this likely won't happen till two weeks from now.
All the unexpected disqualifications of women won't prevent any of the remaining ladies from going down into elimination. According to spoilers, Tori Deal will be the next female to go home after losing a battle in the crater to Aneesa Ferreira. Tori will likely get the boot in the next two episodes despite the side drama.
