Eleven remain, but that’s too many. 1. Pinheads The challenge is called Crash Course. It’s basically bowling, but instead of a ball, there’s a stunt car. Instead of pins, there’s three barrels for each competitor with a Challenger standing atop. The goal is to knock over as many barrels as possible by pulling the e-brake and skidding into the barrels. In the event of a tie, … Continue reading The Challenge Total Madness: Top Moments from Episode 15

As it stands now, some people are huge … Continue reading Who’s Ready to Run the Total Madness Final?
If you watched Episode 14 of Total Madness, you might notices some questionable decisions. Aneesa gets voted into elimination, goes home, and Cory gets bumped out of the Tribunal. At the beginning, viewers are led to believe Cory wants to be in the Tribunal to have the most appearances in there. There may be a kernel of truth to this statement, but the achievement isn’t … Continue reading Why Was Aneesa Eliminated on Total Madness?

Three people remain without skulls. Will anyone get a red one? 1. A Long Weight This week we have a double elimination, and the challenge is “screw your enemy style.” In Running Out of Time, competitors run to a pile of rubbish and pick up a piece. They throw it in their opponent’s bin so their opponents have heavy bins to hold. Once TJ blows the … Continue reading The Challenge Total Madness: Top Moments from Episode 14
After nine seasons on the show, Nany lost another elimination. Once again, she made it far into the game, but once again she’s out close to the final. If we’re being really honest with ourselves, her Challenge record is pretty awful. Nine seasons, nine elimination losses, three wins, and one final. The only time she saw a final was on Free Agents. On that season … Continue reading Is Nany Cut Out for The Challenge?

For the most part, this has kept her off screen, but she’s doing well thus far. In fact, it seems like the … Continue reading Is Kaycee a Floater or Challenge Master?
Total Madness is a season where some people have accomplished major feats. Other people have flown under the radar and barely done anything this season. Last week, Kyle had to plead for his chance to get a Red Skull. His request was denied, and Cory got the opportunity. Now, Kyle is sitting in the game without a skull. To be honest, weeks go by and … Continue reading Kyle Really is The Most Useless Player On Total Madness
