Now that the presence of Are You The One? kids on The Challenge is all but official, it’s time to start embracing this new crop of Challengers. Even though there are allegedly only 4 on the upcoming 26th Challenge, opening this door brings the potential of 20 new players to The Challenge.
Taking a walk down memory lane, 2006 introduced us to Fresh Meat 1. 2010 introduced us to Fresh Meat 2. If we’re keeping pace, 2014 would introduce us to Fresh Meat 3. Instead, we saw Are You The One?
For the most part, no one regards either Fresh Meat season as an exceptional season. They did, however, bring us some exceptional players. So perhaps Are You The One will bring some “fresh meat” onto the Challenge field without us having to endure another Fresh Meat season.
In my eyes, that’s the only positivity to having them on the show. I also never watched Are You The One, so I may love these kids if I watch the show. Still, it feels kind of funny to have them on a Challenge.
Of course, Are You The One 2 has also been announced, which will introduce 20 more individuals who could be on The Challenge.
