Over the course of the past 3 seasons we’ve seen Wes’ performance on The Challenge continuously drop. He arguably lost the Rivals final for himself and Kenny, was eliminated from Battle of the Exes by Leroy (a competitor on Rivals 2), and comically lost to Big Easy in the first elimination on Battle of the Season.
So he’s now paired with CT. Some people would argue that he’s the best competitor on the show. BUT, he is the male competitor that has appeared on the most challenges without winning. Plus he’s also the only person on the show to be booted from a challenge quicker than you can say Tyrie. By just looking at CT you might see a strong competitor, but his challenge states don’t match with that perception.
So here’s why the this team might be cursed from the get-go.
They both run their mouths. Having a target on your back isn’t a good idea, but it never stopped either of them from causing drama. Competitors like Knight and Frank might not be as strong as CT, but they’re good at scheming. I bet that they’ll be throwing him into The Jungle whenever possible.
Wes doesn’t hit the gym like he used to. He’s much skinnier than was on previous seasons. Even if we does win, he won’t be showing off his guns again:
Wes had a hard time on the Rivals final. He finished it, but only with the help of his partner Kenny.
CT lost in the Battle of the Exes final. He was doing so well with Diem until they lost their lead at the very end of the final…and it was because CT gassed out.
They’re coming in without allies. CT is the only Real World Paris cast member. Wes is the only one from Austin. No one has their backs, so if they lose, they’ll likely get thrown into The Jungle.
So the chips might be stacked against these two. What do you think?
