In case you haven’t heard of it or watched yet, ELEAGUE The Challenger is a reality show where Street Fighter V players compete for a slot in this year invitational. With four players now eliminated, we’re getting closer to finding out who will be in this year’s tournament.
To get you caught up on what’s happened this season, here’s a recap of some of the eliminations and challenges we’ve seen so far.
LTG Is First One Out
In the premiere episode, JB won the first challenge of playing Street Fighter one in the mirror with the fastest time. He then sends RobTV to the elimination match and he chooses to fight Low Tier God with the surprise of him using Guile instead of Karin. Rob eliminates LTG 5-1.
Sherry Jenix Eliminated Week 2
During the show, Sherry was worried about being put in elimination but her time came when JB chose to fight her over a ready, pumped up Dayasha. During her match against JB, the nerves sat in as she missed DP’s (direct punishes) and other punishable opportunities which led to her elimination also losing 5-1.
EP 3: Celebrity Guest Fills The Void
This challenge was a 3V3 match where Team Gllty went against the team led by celebrity guest Lupe Fiasco, who won the celebrity invitational last year. The most notable match was Lupe vs Dayasha who began his friendly trash talk against the rapper. He did not disappoint beating Lupe’s Ken in their part of the team match. This week, however, he was eliminated by Gllty.
RobTV Joins The Eliminated
All collusion from Episode 2 aside, this week it’s Gllty vs RobTV in eliminations. Gllty and Rob had an exchange of some words including Rob telling her “I would love to come down here and watch you hang your jersey up” and calling her Menat weak. But in the end, RobTV was eliminated.
So far, Commander Jessie has been surviving each week as he falls into the background and hardly says anything. JB has been the ringmaster of the eliminations since day one and may continue to be until he’s eliminated. At this point, it’s safe to say that Gllty now has a target on her back.
Who will be eliminated next? Tune in tonight to find out on TBS at 10 p.m. Est.
