Where the Ratchet Things Are is the fifth episode of The Challenge: Rivals III.


After a name-calling scream fest, one cast member must choose between keeping their best friend out of The Jungle, or having their teammate's back. TJ brings in a replacement team to make up for last week's deserters.


Location: Huatulco, Mexico
Challenge: Out on a Limb
Pairs will navigate a structure 30 feet above the water using a series of swinging bars. Players will start on one platform and must grab a bar, swinging out like a door until they reach the second platform. Players must repeat this process as the platforms get increasingly more difficult to land on. After pairs reach the final platform they must jump off and ring the bell. The team with the fastest time will win and nominate two teams for the Jungle while the team with the slowest time will automatically go to the Jungle.
