Total Madness Twist: You Need to Win an Elimination to Win the Game

The Total Madness trailer has given us some insight into the season, and the big twist this season has been revealed. If you want to win the season you need to win an elimination. This is a fairly unique twist. It’s kind of like The Island where competitors earned keys to the final boat by winning eliminations, but the three-way face offs allowed people like … Continue reading Total Madness Twist: You Need to Win an Elimination to Win the Game

Leroy and Kam are Together?

It looks like Kamroy is back in full swing! The two have both posted pictures on Instagram recently implying they’re dating. Leroy’s caption is a simple “nothing like it 🖤” while Kam simply wrote “Happy.” These captions are pretty ambiguous, but the comments from other cast members seem to tell the story. Cara Maria wrote “This means the world to me,” Ashley wrote “Oh my … Continue reading Leroy and Kam are Together?

Jenn Grijalva: One of the Best or Worst?

In the middle years of The Challenge, there were a lot of big names who never quite got a gold medal. One of the more notable names is Jenn Grijalva, an alumnae from Real World: Denver.

Over the … Continue reading Jenn Grijalva: One of the Best or Worst?

Five Seasons With Dark Undertones

A lot has happened on The Challenge, some aired and some unaired. Every season has its share of drama, but some seasons take it to the next level. These are the seasons why Challengers fall victim to series of misfortunes, unhappy events occur, lives get ruined due to the drama.

Cutthroat: One of the Best or Worst Seasons?

In The Challenge world, season 30 was a spectacle. It was a marking of the show’s success and a sign of its longevity. Just ten seasons earlier, when the show hit seasons twenty, the milestone was ignored. Season 20 gave us the theme “Cutthroat.” It was a unique theme, and one that’s beloved by many longterm fans. Despite the lasting impact, the season was somewhat … Continue reading Cutthroat: One of the Best or Worst Seasons?

Most seasons of The Challenge are remembered for one or two main storylines. War of the Worlds 2 will be remembered for “Cara’s Cult” vs. the Bananas/Jordan’s alliance and Jordan proposing to Tori.

Rogan & Joss: Cara Maria is “Miserable” and “Very Anti-Social”

Everyone’s favorite Brits have taken to People TV to talk about their War of the Worlds 2 cast mates, and they had some nice and not-so-nice things to say.

Mostly, they said things we already knew: Jordan talks too much shit and Paulie wants … Continue reading Rogan & Joss: Cara Maria is “Miserable” and “Very Anti-Social”

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. I would even argue that this season began the modern era of The Challenge and retired a few elements of older seasons. Looking back on the … Continue reading Game Changers: Dirty Thirty

Twenty Most Important Challengers of the Decade

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

What We Learned from the War of the Worlds 2 Reunion

Last night we saw the two-hour War of the Worlds 2 reunion hosted by Champs vs. Stars Alumnae Justina Valentina and professional mumbler Nick “Swaggy P” Young.  The show presented us with a lot of rehashed drama mixed with some new tidbits of information. In terms of the information learned, I would definitely say the War of the Worlds 1 reunion was more informative. Still, … Continue reading What We Learned from the War of the Worlds 2 Reunion

Zach Was Team USA’s Secret Powerhouse

War of the Worlds 2 was full out finalists who never saw an elimination. For the most part, they were included in the majority alliance AKA The Cult of Cara. There was one exception: Zach. This was Zach’s fourth final, and despite losing, it may have been his best showing on The Challenge since his debut. While there was a period of time when Zach … Continue reading Zach Was Team USA’s Secret Powerhouse
