‘rivals ii’ sneak peek: news of his nephew’s birth brings the mighty zach to tears
Missing a bestie’s birthday or graduation party to compete on “The Challenge” is one thing, but when a sibling gives birth and you’re stuck halfway around the world risking your sanity for a very large sum of cash, the distance becomes a bit more difficult to bear. As you can see in this “Rivals II” sneak peek, Zach gets news that his sister had her very first son, and what starts as a sweet, teary conversation between him and his mom about the wee one’s birthing stats quickly becomes a total freakout that rivals any of his former housemate’s “Frankouts.”
“It is the hardest thing in the world, to be on the other side of the world during one of the biggest moments in my family’s life,” Uncle Zach says after he breaks down during his mother’s play by play. “It sucks not being there, but it is one hell of an inspiration.” When Zach’s emotional pain suddenly becomes a physical, gut-wrenching stomachache, the unruly beast is let out of his cage, and it doesn’t look like there’s any stopping it. “When Zach gets upset, it’s kinda like, ‘Get the f**k outta the way,” Aneesa says as she watches him unravel.
Think Zach can get past this bump in the road? Watch the clip below, and stay tuned for an all-new “Rivals II” Wednesday night at 10e/p!
