The Challenge season 37 episode 5: Aneesa leaves, Gabo eliminated

The ChallengeOn tonight’s The Challenge season 37 episode 5, we saw an elimination before the showdown at the lair even happened. Why was Aneesa eliminated?

Ultimately, one of the show’s most familiar performers did not get a chance to move forward — and it’s all because of injury. She was not medically cleared to continue, which is a fate we’ve seen from a number of competitors over the years. This is a hard, grueling show where injuries can happen at any given moment. It’s because of this that the medical team is pretty diligent with who they decide to not allow to continue. The good news is that with Aneesa being such a veteran, we have a feeling that she’ll be able to come back and compete again at some other point down the road. The tough part for Aneesa is that it’s been a long time since she last saw the final. Will she be able to make it back there?

For the sake of Spies, Lies, and Allies, the show did go on. What happened from here? Logan and Gabo were the two who faced off at the end of the episode and from the moment that he learned that it was a puzzle, Gabo hated it. This was legitimately tough! There was a memory component here, but also a physical one since you had to climb up and down that rope constantly. Logan is training to be a firefighter, so in that sense he had a pretty instant advantage.

So who was eliminated between the two? Unfortunately for Gabo, it was him. This was a legitimately tough showdown between the two and neither one of them was perfect when it comes to solving the puzzle. Losing Gabo is sad, mostly because he was SUCH a character to watch.
