As it always does, the “Next week on The Challenge” played immediately after the episode ended. I don’t know if MTV was just seeing if we were paying attention, or if this was just a classic screw up. Anyway, during the “Next week on The Challenge,” MTV leaked the winner of the elimination between Cory and Hunter!
That’s very, clearly Hunter standing between Dario and Nelson. No Cory in sight. Meaning that Hunter must have won the elimination and MTV must have dropped the ball letting this one slide through editing.
Kudos to Danielle for bringing this to our attention.
