What the Phuket?! is the fifth episode of The Challenge: Rivals II.


One challenger gets homesick and takes his frustration out on everyone around him. A strategic fumble in voting leads one challenger to accidentally send her hookup into elimination.


Location: Phuket, Thailand
Challenge: Frog Smash
The challenge will take place on a 60 foot beam suspended 30 feet above the water with eight swings. On TJ's signal teams must try to run as quickly as they can across the beam. While they are crossing the beam the opposing players of the same gender will be swinging around in an attempt to knock them off. Players must stay within two swings of their partner while crossing the swing to avoid a time penalty. If one partner on a team falls into the water the other player must continue and both of their separate times will be totaled. The fastest male team will win safety from the Jungle while the fastest female team will win $1,000 to split. The slowest male team, or the male team to fall into the water first, will be sent straight to the Jungle.

Jungle: Breaking on Through
Teams will start on top of their own three-floor tower in the center of the Jungle. On TJ's signal players must jump through the trapdoor at the top of the tower and use the tools provided to continue breaking through each floor until they reach the bottom. The floors require cutting through chains, breaking through drywall and glass panels, and breaking open a steel lock on a door at the bottom of the tower. Teams must alternate between who breaks through for each level and the team to reach the bottom of their tower the fastest will win and return to the game. The losers will be eliminated.
