Each week, The Challenge: Ride or Dies on MTV gets messier and harder for the people who are still in it. Jay Starrett and Michele Fitzgerald were killed in episode 8 because of all their plotting and backstabbing. So, in episode 9, who goes home? The Challenge Season 38 spoilers tell us the following about what will happen next.
After the elimination in episode 8, T.J. Lavin seemed to hint at a new twist.
So far, the structure of Challenge Season 38 has been simple. As the game went on and new teams were added, there were a few changes. But when big names like Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio and Nany González, Jordan Wiseley and Aneesa Ferreira, and Veronica Portillo and Darrell Taylor were put on the new teams, it seemed like the twists stopped.
But it looks like episode 9 will bring a twist that will change the game. Spoiler expert PinkRose posted The Challenge Season 38 spoilers on Reddit, saying that the “ride or die” pairs will now split into two teams. Team one is made up of Johnny “Bananas,” Tori Deal, Nelson Thomas, Aneesa, Faysal Shafaat, Kaycee Clark, Chauncey Palmer, and Olivia Kayser. Jordan, Nany, Devin Walker, Amber Borzotra, Horacio Gutierrez, Moriah Jadea, Kenny Clark, and Nurys Mateo are all on team two.
In episode 8, T.J. Lavin makes a hint about this. “You all know by now that this time of year is full of surprises, right?” Lavin said. “What will occur next is always a mystery. So, the next challenge will be that corner.”
Spoilers for Episode 38 of “The Challenge”: It ends on a cliffhanger

So, in The Challenge Season 38 Episode 9, who gets kicked out? Reddit leaks about The Challenge Season 38 say that Nurys Mateo and Nelson Thomas will be the next team to leave. But in episode 9, they don’t go home. Instead, because of the twist, the episode ends with a cliffhanger.
One fan broke down what they thought would happen in episode 9 on Reddit. Most likely, the winners of the daily challenges will get to choose their teams. This is how the new teams will be made. From there, there may be individual cuts. If one of the original “ride-or-die” partners leaves the game, the other partner could bring them back as long as they are still in the game. But if both ride-or-die players are taken out, the team loses. Fans will have to wait and see how this turns out and what the rules are, since this is still just a guess.
There are rumours that Nurys and Nelson will be eliminated as a team if they both lose their individual eliminations. But that might not happen until the 11th or 12th episode.
Who wins Season 38 of “The Challenge”? After the twist, how do the teams get back together?
Reddit leaks about The Challenge Season 38 say that Tori Deal and Devin Walker will win the season. But with the new twist, it’s still unclear how they’ll get back together.
A Reddit user suggested that the ride-or-die pairings where one player was eliminated and the other was still in the game during the twist might have to play against each other. If they won, they might be able to work together again. So, rumours have it that Tori and Devin don’t see any of the individual eliminations. However, this is just a guess.
The 38th season of The Challenge airs on MTV every Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET.
