Now that Champs vs. Stars 2 has come to an end, we’re moving into the Final Reckoning. SPOILER: A lot of the cast will be going from one season to the next. SPOILER again, there are nine people going from one season to the next. Champs vs. Stars 2 was unique, because the reunion took place after Final Reckoning finished filming. Clearly, some of the … Continue reading Champs vs. Stars 2: What We Need to Know for Final Reckoning
The first reunion from a spinoff season. How did it do? The reunion special was viewed by 445,000 people and received a rating of 0.25 in the 18-49 demographic. Honestly, this is awful. I didn’t expect much from this reunion because it seemed to be put together in a rush and not promoted too well. While it didn’t do as well as the finale episode, … Continue reading Champs vs. Stars 2: Reunion Ratings
The Champs vs. Stars finale brought a first into the Challenge world. Tony, who has never won a formal season of The Challenge, won the spinoff series. This makes him a unique classification of “Champion.” He never won a real Challenge, won a spinoff, but already wore the title of “Champion” on the spinoff. Whether or not Tony is a true Champion is open for … Continue reading Is Tony Officially a Challenge Champion?
The end is here. Except there’s a reunion for some reason. But did people tune in for the finale? Episode 10 was viewed by 534,000 people and received a rating of 0.35 in the 18-49 demographic. A slight bump up. A lukewarm end to a lukewarm season. Looks like the Movie Awards didn’t really help. Continue reading Champs vs. Stats 2: Episode 10 Ratings
The final is here! But before the final, Kailah and Drake went home in the Icy Hot elimination. This means the final consisted of CT& Tony, Wes & Booby, and Casper & Louise. Then, we got to the final. The goal was to run four laps around a track, stopping at a check point each step of the way. Completing a check point results in … Continue reading Champs vs. Stars 2: MVPs from Episode 10
The end is near! One team has to go before the final. Who will it be? The Challenge: Text Tile– Teams must roll a cube down the beach. One player pushes, the other is on top of the cube. Once the team crosses a line, they must unlock tiles and solve a “pop culture” crossword puzzle consisting of modern slang. CT & Tony get through … Continue reading Champs vs. Stars 2: Episode 9 MVPs
After a dip last week, how did this week perform? Episode 9 was viewed by 524,000 people and received a rating of 0.33 in the 18-49 demographic. A slight bump up, but the show didn’t recover from last week’s fall. Continue reading Champs vs. Star 2: Episode 9 Ratings
As we approach the end of the second season of Champs vs. Stars, we’re saying good bye to a third group of stars. Except, Jozea has transitioned to a full-time Challenge competitor. While this is mostly due to his appearance on Big Brother, I can’t help but wonder which other competitors could survive a full season of The Challenge. Here are the spinoff stars I’d … Continue reading Ten Stars Who Could Become Champs
Each week, production has been giving the MVP a “power play,” a special advantage to interfere with the regularly scheduled game. While the Champs have been getting some nice privileges such as benching a competitor from the next challenge (Ashley’s power), giving someone immunity from elimination (CT’s power), or assigning a disadvantage to a team in the next challenge (Shane’s power), the Stars have received … Continue reading Casper’s Power Play: Proof of Rigging?
Leading in with a cliffhanger from last week. Episode 8 was viewed by 494,000 people and received a rating of 0.30 in the 18-49 demographic. Yikes! Big drop from last week. At least the season is ending soon, because I don’t think we can redeem it much. Continue reading Champs vs. Stars 2: Episode 8 Ratings
A cliffhanger from last week led us to the elimination. Elimination: Flip Cup- Jozea & Selita vs. Louise & Casper. Each competitor must flip three cups (six per team) like a standard game of flip cup. Then, competitors will get into a life size Solo cup and flip it three times total per team. Unsurprisingly, Louise & Casper win. The Challenge: Spot On- It’s a … Continue reading Champs vs. Stars 2: Episode 8 MVPs
When the Champs and Stars split into pairs, a few immediately caught my attention. Specifically, CT & Tony, Louise & Capser, and Wes & Booby. While these teams seem to be the strongest, there was one wild card team: Shane & Brooke. The Road Rules veteran and Hogan Knows Best star have taken a liking to each other and have proven they’re here to compete. … Continue reading Shane & Brooke: The Team to Beat?
