This week’s swimming challenge did not go so well with Love Island‘s Cinco Holland Jr. and Big Brother alum Azah Awasum in The Challenge: USA. The competitors had to dive into murky waters to retrieve puzzle pieces and swim back ashore multiple times. Unfortunately, Azah was a weak swimmer and it took her and Cinco a long time to gather all their pieces.
Although Azah struggled to finish the last lap, she didn’t give up and Cinco gave her the encouragement she needed. The duo was neck and neck with Survivor winner Sarah Lacina and The Amazing Race star Leo Temory, but unfortunately, Azah and Cinco lost against them. They were defeated, but they still had their heads in the game and tried to play it smart.
The daily challenge winners Tyson Apostol and Cashay Proudfoot tried to get a read on who Cinco and Azah wanted to go against in the elimination. However, Cinco didn’t want to lay out all his cards, as he didn’t trust his ex-girlfriend, Cashay. In a surprising twist, Tyson and Cashay threw in Sarah and Leo, causing the Survivor winner to be furious at her former castmate. The elimination challenge had both teams fumbling in the dark, but in the end, Sarah and Leo were victorious.
