10 Competitors Who’ve Never Seen a Final But Should Return

Some competitors come onto The Challenge with a lot of potential. They might win a daily challenge, win eliminations, or just come across as super likable. At some point in the competition they get eliminated, then the calls stop coming, and they haven’t been back to The Challenge in a while. Here are ten people who viewers want to see return to The Challenge even … Continue reading 10 Competitors Who’ve Never Seen a Final But Should Return

Game Changers: Dirty Thirty

Dirty Thirty seems like a very recent season to me, but we’ve now seen four seasons following it. It’s safe to say this season had a long-term impact of the Challenge series and its effects still impact current seasons.

Ten Challenges Where Someone Could Have Died

The Challenge has instilled the fear of death into many of its competitors. Usually, it’s just part of the competition and the games are safe. Then there are the times when things go wrong and competitors end up in a compromising situation.

As fun activity, I’m going to … Continue reading Every Challenge Season Renamed as a Friends Episode

With 2020 right around the corner, it only seems right to remember the past decade of Challenges. To do this, I want to celebrate the twenty Challengers who made the biggest impact this decade. I am only assessing people based on shows aired from 2010-2019. In other words, it’s Fresh Meat 2 until War of the Worlds 2. So CT punching Adam doesn’t matter on … Continue reading Twenty Most Important Challengers of the Decade

Swaggy P: Why We Have Awful Reunion Hosts

If you watched the War of the Worlds 2 Reunion you may have noticed something: the hosts suck. Justina Valentina was OK. She has a strong personality, but she clearly knew what was going on. She was on Champs vs. Stars and has some investment in The Challenge, so I support her inclusion on The Reunion. Then, there was Nick “Swaggy P” Young. Why was … Continue reading Swaggy P: Why We Have Awful Reunion Hosts
