2020 has brought about the end of some iconic dynasties. Tom Brady left the New England Patriots. So did Rob Gronkowski. More importantly, though, three-time "Challenge" champion CT was eliminated by Jay just three episodes in. We're as bummed as the rest of you about CT's departure, but let's not make it weird, bro.

Here at The Duel, we'll be providing weekly fantasy picks and power rankings for each episode of MTV's "The Challenge: Total Madness." Here are our picks for Week 4.

The Challenge Fantasy Picks Week 4

1. Dee

It's a girl's elimination week, and Jenny is the only female competitor with a red skull. Expect some of the top dogs to try and throw themselves in this week. Dee already blew her chance to get one in Week 2, and it's hard to see her making the same mistake twice. One of the best competitors on the show, she's got a great chance at winning if voted in and is our top pick for MVP this week.

2. Bear

Bear has now been included in three of our four fantasy picks. We have yet to be proven right. But taking a look at the sneak peak for this week's episode, and without spoiling anything, Bear looks like he's going to be the center of attention. Suffice it to say, Bear is a more-convincing pretend fireman than Vinny Chase ever was.

3. Kailah

Bear has made his feelings for Kailah quite clear. Judging by that same sneak peak, there are going to be fireworks between these two. Whether that ends in a hook up, an argument (or both), fantasy players get points for either outcome.

The Challenge Power Rankings Week 4

The following power rankings break down the long-term outlook of which competitors have the best chance at winning the show outright.

Male Competitors

5. Jay – This might be an overreaction, but the former "Survivor" contestant has proven himself to be just that. He's come out of elimination twice, so we'll give him the nod over veterans like Cory and Nelson.

4. Rogan

3. Wes

2. Jordan – Jordan hasn't done much this season, but he's probably the best all-around athlete on the show. It'll be hard to pick against him in an elimination or a final.

1. Bananas

Female Competitors

5. Mattie

4. Nany

3. Dee – Dee has been the center of attention thanks to her relationship with Rogan, but she's an absolute force to be reckoned with. Coming off a win last season, she's got a real shot to win back-to-back titles.

2. Tori

1. Jenny – Jenny is playing with a huge advantage. She's one of the best competitors on the show and has already earned a red skull. It'll be hard to unseat her from atop this list.
