I have no idea what's causing it. Everything seems to be set up properly. Is the gauntlet the same every time this happens?

No, it is not the same each time. Perhaps the issue is with the save file, and not the game itself? If so, it could be caused by something such as saving and quiting in the middle of Gauntlet Mode, which I have done. If not... I don't know.
