MTV loves to remind us that Dirty Thirty, Vendettas, and Final Reckoning are a trilogy. Though most of the connections between the three seasons seem forced, fans have accepted these three seasons as a cohesive unit. For this reason, I am going to be ranking every single cast member from these shows. My rankings will be based on a number of factors such as: prominence … Continue reading Ranking Every Single Cast Member from the Trilogy

Part 2 of the Final Reckoning Reunion was viewed by 671,000 people and received a rating of 0.40 in the 18-49 demographic.

Part One of the reunion has aired, and Ashley received a verbal lashing for stealing Hunter’s share of the prize money. Some people can’t understand this, others agree with Ashley’s decision, but very few are actually surprised. Naturally, parallels are drawn between Ashley stealing Hunter’s money and Bananas stealing Sarah’s money on Rivals 3. When Bananas was asked about Ashley’s decision he defended Ashley. He … Continue reading Bananas vs. Ashley: Who’s More Savage?
$500,000 is a lot of money to turn down, but many competitors claim they would split the money with their partner if given the choice. We all know Ashley wouldn’t share, but I truly believe many competitors would. If given the option to split or steal, here’s what I think each competitor would do. I’d like to emphasize: these are my thoughts. Feel free to … Continue reading Who Would Have Taken the Money: Every Final Reckoning Competitor
Episode 19 entered the final on a pretty good note. Let’s see how the actual final episode performed. Episode 20 was viewed by 736,000 people and received a rating of 0.44 in the 18-49 demographic.

No … Continue reading The Challenge Final Reckoning: Top Moments from Episode 20
After Final Reckoning ended, the cast took to Twitter to voice their grievances. One of the biggest moments during the final was Paulie & Natalie’s use of their grenade. Natalie swore she wouldn’t use her grenade on Joss & Sylvia if they dropped from the standing/ endurance competition. Paulie echoed her promise, stating he swore on his family’s lives. At the last stage of the … Continue reading Joss is Mad He Lost Final Reckoning and Natalie Isn’t Sorry
This week we saw Team Banony get sent home, for real this time. Both Bananas and Tony seemed a little bitter over their loss, but nothing excessive. Both of them handled their elimination with an appropriate level of grief and anger, so viewers would never know they had almost earned their spot in the final. How did this happen? Production switched the elimination and made … Continue reading Bananas, Tony, and the Case of the Changed Elimination
After a bunch of concerned voters rudely abandoned The Challenge to watch election results last week, could the show rebound? Episode 19 was viewed by 828,000 people and received a rating of 0.51 in the 18-49 demographic. This was a pretty great rebound. Glad the season is still getting supported by viewers.

And now, we are reaching the end. 1. The Shock of Success Trivia is back! In a game called Painfully Wrong competitors have five strikes before getting eliminated and must get answers correctly if they don’t want to accumulate strikes. Similar to the first trivia of this season, competitors who answer questions correctly will assign a strike to another team. The catch? To advance to the … Continue reading The Challenge Final Reckoning: Top Moments from Episode 19
Almost every team this season has lost something: a Challenge, an elimination, or Redemption. There is one exception. The team who won this week’s Challenge: Joss & Sylvia. It seems like Final Reckoning has a revolving door of cast members, but Joss & Sylvia have been the one constant in the Main House. Out of the five remaining teams in the game, only two have … Continue reading Have Joss & Sylvia Mastered Final Reckoning?
