The Challenge Finale

(MTV)

When The Challenge doles out yet another mountain-climbing final to the Free Agents, two teams quickly take the lead—but that’s not to say it’s smooth scaling.

As an unlikely lady finds herself within striking distance of the cash, two cramping legs get in the way of $125,000 pretty quickly for one guy on the verge of quitting. Below, find out who’s on the ascent and who’s hitting an all-time low.

The Challenge: Free Agents finale airs Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on MTV.
