This week’s episode of ‘The Challenge: Battle of the Exes 2’ was definitely one of the most heartbreaking things we’ve ever seen in MTV’s history — but it also showed that Diem Brown was one loved woman.
Last week’s Challenge: Battle of the Exes 2 ended with Diem Brown feeling sick after a peanut butter challenge, but making CT still go out and have a good time. This week picked up right where it left off, and CT returned home to bad news.
No Questions Asked
The producers let CT know right away that Diem went to the hospital while they were out at the club. Unfortunately, since he had been drinking, he couldn’t go to the hospital, but did talk to her on the phone. You could see the pain in his eyes that he couldn’t be with her. He just wanted her home — and one hour later, she was.
Unfortunately, after getting some rest she still wasn’t feeling well and CT carried her into the car to the hospital. TJ Lavin entered the house shortly after, and delivered the news — she needed to go home, and CT would be going with her.
This moment definitely showed how much the house loved her — the guys helped CT pack while Nia and Averey packed up all of Diem’s things: including a box that CT filled with goodies, wrapped in paper and had the entire house write “welcome home” messages on.
We did see her get onto a stretcher in Panama City and then out in New York City, but what we love is the voiceover of Diem, reminding us that she’s the strongest woman out there. And was until the very end.
I’m at a point in my life where I just want to live life. I want the white picket fence dream. I want to get married, I want to have kids. I think for the longest time, I was the runaway bride. I’ve been the girl thats terrified of commitment. But I’m realizing no matter how organized your ducks are, life can turn in two seconds. So you can’t keep on waiting, because if you keep on waiting, it’s gone. But having a partner like CT with me, gives me some sort of weird relief that I know somebody is in my corner. And that feels comforting.
This One’s For Diem
The show must go on, though — and all competitors wanted to play hard for Diem.
At the challenge, teams had to hold on as long as possible to a rotating rope, then when they dropped into water, swim to the finish line. Sara and Jordan take the W for the game while Are You the One‘s John/JJ and Simone couldn’t pull their weight. Sara and Jordan made a deal with both Johnny Bananas and Wes that they would keep them first on their list — basically feeding them both whatever they want to hear. So, they send in AYTO‘s Brittany and Adam.
However, it’s not a physical round — but all about how well you know how much your partner can eat. They had to eat brownies, yucca sticks and patacones, which apparently were tougher than we thought. So, Brittany and Adam once again win in the Dome — and celebrate by getting drunk and hooking up.
Our hearts and prayers go out to Diem Brown’s friends and family.
