Let’s pretend that the challenge was going to be continued for 10 more seasons (I hope this becomes a reality). It doesn’t seem likely that people such as CT, Johnny, Paula, Diem, Kenny etc. will do these things forever.
In fact, there was a time when these people didn’t dominate the challenge scene. Their domination really began with challenges like The Ruins, Rivals, and Battle of the Exes. Prior to that time, the shows were dominated by people such as Robin, Brad, Derrick, and Katie. And before these people we had like Coral, Veronica, The Miz, and Theo.
Of course, previous generations haven’t completely faded into oblivion. Robin, Aneesa, Derrick and others seem to pop up on challenges. But they’re appearances are far less consistent than they once were. So if The Challenges have 5+ more years left in it, these are the people we ought to get used to.
Frank & Zach– The new Johnny and Tyler? Seems possible. They both like to run the show, are no strangers to making alliances, enjoy stirring up drama, and have a rocky relationship. With Zach’s outbursts and numerous relationships with other cast members, it seems likely that he could become a staple in the series. Frank’s frequent fighting will also be enough for him to get invited onto more shows. In my opinion, Battle of the Seasons was an introduction to a new generation of challenges and as the frontrunners of the season these two seem to be contenders for many more challenges.
Emily– The new Evelyn? Real World D.C.’s cross-fit enthusiast seems to have become a fan favorite. She’s known to kick-ass on challenges and win elimination rounds. Like Evelyn, she’s not invincible… just close to it.
Trey- The new Dunbar? Much like Dunbar on The Island and The Duel 2, Trey was kind of connected to the main alliance, but not really included in it. Add in the fact that he’s kind of hot headed and irrational, and he has many traits in common with Dummy Bear. Trey seems like a tough guy, but his performance doesn’t always align with his physique.
Cara Maria– The new Paula? On Rivals 1, Cara Maria and Laurel were kind of involved with the main alliance, but at they end of the day they were deemed disposable. Much like Paula on The Island. Cara has been on the past 5 challenges, had many episodes with rocky relationships, and is a decent competitor. She seems to be a good contender to win, but drama always gets in the way. Perhaps she won’t stop showing up until she secures as win.
Knight- OK, enough comparing people (IE, I don’t have a strong comparison for Knight). Now that he’s done a challenge, he’ll likely keep on coming back. He seems to enjoy the challenge environment and scheming his way through the games.
Camila– Camila shows up to compete, and along the way she might take some drugs and throw some chairs. Her loud and accented mouth is enough to get her in many fights. She’ll want to keep doing challenges because she’s a competitor. Production will want her back because she’s crazed.
Dustin– OK, so he had to skip out on Rivals 2 because he was filming Couple Therapy, but it’s no secret that he has a lot of potential to get into conflict. On Battle of the Seasons he was one of the main forces against the main alliance. Plus, he’s a good competitor. That should be reason enough for him to return.
Nany– She’s part drama, part beauty queen, and part competitor. She’s really got a lot going for her, and production would be blind if they couldn’t see that… and if there’s ever a Battle of the Exes 2 her and Adam deserve to be there.
Jordan– I might be going out on a limb here, because I’ve never actually seen him compete, but the fact that he has such an athletic background makes him an ideal challenge candidate. Factor in his argumentative nature and you’ve got a stand out challenger.
Jonna– She’s been described as a serial dater and she enjoys getting into a fight every so often. Plus, she’s exceed expectations on her past 2 challenges. It seems likely that she’ll be included in some more upcoming challenges.
What do you think? Who will become the new generation of challenge whores?
