Whole some teammates are … Continue reading Battle of the Bloodlines: Top Moments from Episode 10
Flashback to episode 1: Bananas and Vince looked like the team to beat. They were ran laps around the competition during the Water Battle competition. Then the bloodlines were placed on opposite teams. This was Vince’s chance to shine and prove Bananas wasn’t carrying him. Instead, he shined as bright as a rusty spoon. Let’s take a look at some of the challenges: Meet Me Halfway- … Continue reading Is Vince As Bad as He Appears to Be?
After a week with CT and this week featuring CT and Zach, it seemed likely that ratings are going to move. This week’s episode was viewed by 932,000 people and received a rating 0.6 in the 18-49 demographic. This is movement upward in both areas, so it is a definite positive for the show. Hopefully next week we will continue to see movement in the … Continue reading Battle of the Bloodlines: Episode 9 Ratings
1. Blood and Water This week’s challenge sends the competitors underwater. In Air Pockets they have to swim 150 feet, and once they go under they have to stay under.

The blue team … Continue reading Battle of the Bloodlines: Top Moments from Episode 9
CT’s exciting return only excited a few people. The episode did go up, but not by a huge amount. Episode 8 was viewed by 879,000 people and received a rating of 0.5.

The exciting (first) return of CT….. 1. Back In Good Faith New week, new challenge. This week’s challenge is called Too Clingy, and the cast has to climb over a cargo net, and then climb under the net while getting as many people across in the fastest possible time. This concept is really difficult, so production flew CT and Diem’s sister Faith half way across the … Continue reading Battle of the Bloodlines: Top Moments from Episode 8
Four challenges with the new teams, and the blue team has yet to win. Despite the fact that there are some strong members on the blue team, they cannot manage to defeat the red team. With only 4 more challenges (most likely, unless they have two eliminations after the final challenge), the red team has the clear advantage.\ While the blue team has been losing, … Continue reading Can The Blue Team Be Saved?

The blue team keeps losing, and that means players have to go in. While some people have accepted a fate in The Pit, no one seemed quite as willing to go in as Kellyanne. Many people thought Kellyanne volunteered because she was over the game. She’s been the center of drama, lost her boy toy Dario, and doesn’t seem to be in anyone’s alliance. Volunteering … Continue reading Was It Smart For Kellyanne to Volunteer?
