Challenge: Total Madness

The Challenge Total Madness: Challenger Stats

I’ve done this with prior seasons, so now I’m going to be taking a look at stats for the players on Total Madness. For this list, I can only really look at the returners with prior Challenge experience. The newcomers will have a brief bio based upon their prior experiences and relationships with existing cast members. They don’t have stats direct stats toward The Challenge, but most of them are intertwined in some ways.

Here are some guidelines to remember:

  1. Eliminations are counted as appearances in an elimination arena (The Jungle, The Gauntlet, The Dome, The Proving Ground, etc.).
  2. Elimination wins and losses from Battle of the Bloodlines only count if the competitor was actually competing in The Pit.
  3. If the elimination did not occur due to “chance” (like Wes and Nany’s Jungle), it will not count.
  4. Champs vs. Pros and Champs vs. Stars will be noted separately, but not counted as a formal appearance
  5. Bolded appearances in the finals indicate a win

ROOKIES

I’ve already recapped the Big Brother 20 alumni.

Asaf Goren

Asaf Goren Total Madness

What we know: Asaf was on Are You the One season 4, where he actually had a fling with Tori. Since then, he has done tons of reality TV, just not all in the US. He was also on So You Think You Can Dance? and America’s Worst Cooks. He appeared on AYTO: Second Chances where he was constantly near elimination but survived six weeks. He did an international version of Ninja Warrior and won Big Brother: Israel VIP. He’s a true wildcard in the game, but he has few connections. His social game might be strong, but if AYTO: Second Chances is any indication he might not be the most serious competitor.

Bayleigh Dayton

Bayleigh Total Madness

Bayleigh comes into this game with solid connections in the form of her fiancé Swaggy C (secretly married on the DL) and her ally Fessy. She was an OK competitor on Big Brother, but her allies were not the most strategic players. To be honest, I see her coming in with a target on her back because of her relationships.

Chris “Swaggy C” Williams

Swaggy C Total Madness

What we know: Swaggy C perspires confidence, whether it’s earned or not. He’s cocky, but was an early boot on Big Brother. He also has Bayleigh and Fessy on his side, but he is likely to be his own determent. On Big Brother his blunt gameplay cost him the game. Unless he changed his attitude, I don’t think the vets will take kindly to him.

Fessy Shafaat

Fessy Total Madness

What we know: Friends with Bayleigh and Swaggy C, Fessy is probably the member of the trio with the smallest target on his back. He’s not as connected as the engaged couple, plus he’s a big guy. His size has intimidated people based on first impression videos, so he might be a player that other people want to avoid.

Jay Starrett

Jay Starrett Total Madness

What we know: Jay comes from Survivor where he came in sixth. His conditions on that show may make the bunker seems like a resort in comparison. He also did Ex on the Beach with Morgan, who is now Bananas’s girlfriend. They kinda split before Bananas came into the picture, but there may be some awkward energy there.

Jenn Lee

Jenn Lee Total Madness

What we know: Jenn is the single most random cast member this season. She has no connections that I am aware of, did a season The Amazing Race three years ago, but came in last. She doesn’t have much of a track record, but the little we have doesn’t look good.

Kaycee Clarke

Kaycee Clarke

What we know: Kaycee was disconnect from her Big Brother houseguest during their season, but there’s no reason to believe there’s any real bad blood. They were on opposite sides of an alliance, that’s it. However, she also has no obligation to them and may want to take her own path this season. She is a female football player and won Big Brother 20. The Challenge seems like a show she may do well on, and she has reason to be a little cocky.

    1. What do you mean Championships? Like saying CT has 3 wins? Because his appearances in the final are listed with victories in bold.

      I appreciate the comment. Just asking so I can improve upon your feedback.
