My rankings will be based on a number of factors such as: prominence … Continue reading Ranking Every Single Cast Member from the Trilogy

The Amazing Race … Continue reading Big Brother & Challenge Alumni Victor Arroyo Engaged to Nicole Franzel

Do We Really Need the Whole Cast on The Reunion?

I remember back to the early days of The Challenge. People used to be upset that only half of the cast, the ones who survived longer in the game, was invited to the reunion.

We all know that Bananas isn’t the best at puzzles, but … Continue reading Bananas vs. Devin: Has Devin Taken It Too Far?

Was the Vendettas Final Too Easy?

Vendettas opened with a cutthroat, overnight Challenge. When the season came to a wrap, the final was only one day long. Compared to other seasons, this seems quick and less rigorous. Many fans are wondering why the final was so easy. I do believe this is likely the easiest final out of the past 10 or so. If not this season, then Rivals 2. However, … Continue reading Was the Vendettas Final Too Easy?

Does Kyle Have the Vendettas Cast Fooled?

Throughout this season, Kyle has skated by. He avoided elimination, aligned himself with the veterans, and built some decent relationships. This week, we saw Cara Maria and Tony save Kyle from elimination over Leroy and Brad.
