This week’s episode of The Challenge opens with a funeral for Devyn’s wig, Tamara because when you leave people in a house with no television or internet, what else are they supposed to do?
Frank was removed from The Challenge Free Agents in Episode 3, after being diagnosed with pneumonia. It was a bummer and somewhat anti-climactic for such a tough competitor to leave under those circumstance. Apparently, it was also the last time any of us will see him on an MTV challenge.
In the recap at the beginning of the episode, a mysterious MTV narrator man says, “pneumonia knocked Frank out of the game” – our ruling has been confirmed by MTV! They did not say “leave” or “kicked off”. Justification felt. Also, we were all wondering what viral disease/infection and now it’s clear that it’s pneumonia. Hooray for answers!
