Big Brother finally mentioned The Challenge on primetime, and it was at Da’Vonne’s expense. In a recurring segment/ veto game, Zingbot enters the house and roasts each cast member. No one is immune from his jabs. His zing against Da’Vonne: You’ve done three seasons of Big Brother and two seasons of The Challenge. So I’m dying to know which reality show do you plan to… lose … Continue reading Big Brother Finally Mentions The Challenge!
Every season has debut competitors. Some go on to become Challenge legends, but other competitors just do one season and move on with their lives. This list is for the one-and-dones. As the show progressed, we saw fewer people fit this criterion, but there still are a lot of notable competitors who made a splash on their only season. Anyone who did a second season is … Continue reading Best One Season Wonder from Each Challenge Season
Two Challenge alumni have returned to their native TV program! Bayleigh Dayton and Da’Vonne Rogers are appearing on the All Stars season of Big Brother.

Both girls did much better on The … Continue reading Bayleigh Dayton & Da’Vonne Rogers Appear on Big Brother 22
On Total Madness, nine people made it to the final. Two people won, and viewers saw two separate races: day 1 and day 2. Total Madness took the final into a cold climate, something fairly unique, but we’ve seen it in the past. Rewatch Battle of the Exes or Free Agents (all on CBS All Access now!!) and you’ll see them trekking through snow during … Continue reading Is it Time to Reevaluate Final Challenges?
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. They may be remembered for the jerseys covered in country flags or they might become the trilogy of Tribunals. These three seasons saw an influx of rookies onto the show, from … Continue reading Every Competitor From the Second Trilogy Ranked
Coming to you from an exotic Zoom chat, we have the Total Madness reunion! Hosted by Vernon Davis. Jenny doesn’t consider herself a champion. She says you need to win a handful of times to be called a “Champion.” Obviously she’s unaware of Champs. vs. Stars. Bananas was worried he’d never see another final again let alone win it. Bayleigh confirmed she sprained her knee … Continue reading The Challenge Total Madness: Everything Important from the Reunion
The final is here! Rather than a top five moments, this is going to be a highlight reel. The top moment is the final, so enjoy the recap. The cast shows up dressed in their parkas and snow pants. It’s going to be a cold one. 9,000 feet of elevation and twelve miles through the snow. Day one: Competitors must ski through the snow and … Continue reading The Challenge Total Madness: Top Moments from Episode 16
Four Big Brother 20 cast members entered Total Madness. We’re now down to nine people and three of them are from BB20. For a rookie cast, this is pretty remarkable. It’s been a while since we’ve had such a big group of rookies coming from one show, but it was quite common when The Real World was feeding into The Challenge. On The Inferno 4 … Continue reading Three Big Brother 20 Cast Mates are in the Total Madness Final
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
The end of the season is rapidly approaching, and all eleven remaining players have their Red Skulls. For some people, they’ve been training for a final. Others are clinging onto prayers to get through it. Not all of the remaining competitors will be able to run the final, but they all have the minimum requirements to compete. 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
