Once upon a time, The Challenge cared about Are You the One? Dirty Thirty saw a single debut from Are You the One? 5 and it was from Derrick Henry. He was the chosen one, but now he seems to have faded into obscurity. Derrick H. did two seasons, and his appeal on the show was kind of obvious. He’s a hook-up king. He came … Continue reading Does Derrick Henry Deserve Another Shot at The Challenge?
Another season of The Challenge is embarking, and in an era of COVID, The Challenge must move forward. As I always do with cast reveals, I am going to give credit to the team at Vevmo.

Sometimes, we get annoying twist that don’t enhance the game. In fact, we’ve seen a lot of them and I’ve already talked about the worst twists ever. Other twists are pretty good.

Formatting decisions are not … Continue reading Ten Best Challenge Twists Ever
War of the Worlds, War of the Worlds 2, and War of the Worlds 3 Total Madness. They were supposed to be a War trilogy, but production changed their minds at the last minute.

These three seasons saw an influx of rookies onto the show, from … Continue reading Every Competitor From the Second Trilogy Ranked
Over the past two seasons, we’ve come to know Jenny West on The Challenge. She’s incredibly sweet, understanding of others, able to celebrate the successes of others, and on the show to compete. Sure, she’s made some bad moves in the game, but people have committed worse crimes. Because she comes across as such a nice person, I was happy to see her win. If … Continue reading Jenny West: Most Predictable Winner We’ve Seen in Ages
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?
TJ Lavin stated he’d been waiting for over decade for Bananas to face Wes in elimination, and the moment finally arrived on Total Madness.

Throughout Challenge history, we’ve seen various clashes of … Continue reading 20 Blockbuster Challenge Eliminations
On The Challenge, you punch someone and you’re gone. As we saw this week, spitting won’t get you the same punishment. In fact, The Challenge has been quite inconsistent with their acts of violence. While some instances get punished, others just get a slap on the wrist. These physical alternations fall into the gray zone. They’re clearly not acceptable, but they’re also not ground for … Continue reading 11 Gray Zone Instances of Violence on The Challenge

As one of the founding members of the Lavender Ladies, Ashley quickly became defined by her alliances on The Challenge. She worked with Shane, Amanda, and Sylvia on Invasion and Final Reckoning, then won both seasons. Seemingly cursed after stealing Hunter’s money, Ashley was eliminated first on War of the Worlds. Then, she returned on War of the Worlds 2. All Lavender Ladies were gone, … Continue reading Is Ashley Truly a Challenge Shape-Shifter?
