    Once again MTV fails at their own video. Did they not remember there were two very difficult water challenges on both The Duel & Fresh Meat 1. The one on the Duel was so difficult that the only team to do it was Wes & Svetlana & then there was one on Fresh Meat 1 where they are literally dropping deep under water. Think of it like underwater supreme scream. Wow MTV!!! Fail again
