'The Titan Games' Season 2 Episode 6 Best moments: Noah Palicia and Margaux Alvarez are undisputed champions
'The Titan Games' Season 2 continued with the West Region competitors vying to take down current Titans, Noah Palicia and Margaux Alvarez. Today's competitors were Jamara Garrett, Lindsey Hamm, Robbie Rodriguez and Wayne Skivington. And each of them gave their blood, sweat and tears to make it to battle Palicia and Alvarez. While the duo may have retained their Titan titles, there were still some brilliant moments from today's episode.
Wayne Skivington vs Robbie Rodriguez: When Wayne went up 1-0
Wayne made his mark early when he ripped off the plates in double-quick time. Robbie wasn't far behind as he pulled out the plates evenly and steadily and it all boiled down to a display of brute strength where Wayne had the advantage of pipping Robbie to take the lead.
Jamara Garrett vs Lindsey Hamm: When Chain Linked and Kick Out was just another mountain
A bank teller who called herself "Beast by night" and a mountain climber who's scaled peaks across the world. Lindsey on Chain Linked was like a mountain climber attempting to break a record for the fastest climb as she showcased fantastic agility while Jamara matched up to her every step of the way. It was a neck-to-neck tussle, but in an unfortunate case, Jamara's slip cost her heavily as Lindsey took Round 1. The duo faced off again in Kick Out, but Lindsey's leg power outmatched Jamara as she made it 2-0 booking a date with Margaux.
Wayne Skivington vs Robbie Rodriguez: Blood, sweat and tears
Lunar Impact has been one of the most grueling contest. It is a sheer strength-tester and these two men gave it everything they had that it was almost sad to know there was just going to be one winner. Robbie Rodriguez might have pushed his way back to a near victory with sweat dripping, but that was his job. As a nurse, his job was to provide hope and those watching the episode fervently hoped he'd win. But in Wayne, he had a competitor who's calves bled as he grunted and pushed his way for a win.
It was sad to see Robbie go, but if there was an award for being a worthy competitor, Robbie would be the one holding it.
Margaux Alvarez: Undisputed
Mount Olympus is a mountain that's hard to scale but Lindsey seemed ready. What she wasn't prepared for was a threat called Margaux. It was an even tussle until Margaux took the lead in the ball and chain, the penultimate hurdle. The rest is history as she broke through to get the relic and reigned supreme again. This Titan's not going anywhere.
Noah Palicia: Never Back Down
He faced his brother first before becoming a Titan. Then he took down an NFL superstar in Victor Cruz. He held his Titan title for the second time last week and he did it again today. Noah Palicia is here to stay as he put himself back in contention despite the slender lead Wayne gained on Mount Olympus. By the end of the ball and chain, Wayne collapsed with sheer exhaustion while Noah banged his head near the Titan tomb, but that didn't stop the Airforce man as he hammered away to get the relic to lock it in.
It's not all bad news as Wayne and Lindsey will be back for the West Region finals next week. 'The Titan Games' Season 2 airs at 8 pm ET on NBC.
