Welcome to 2020, and we’re beginning the year with a brief break between Challenge seasons. Don’t worry, Season 35 is on the way (rumored in March), but you won’t be able to fill your time by watching Friends on Netflix.

That is a lot of history and a lot of people have viewed the show over the years. Here is my ranking of all thirty-two prior seasons. This is clearly biased, but I do … Continue reading All Thirty Two Real World Seasons Ranked
The final Challenges have become increasingly harder over the years, but one thing has remained consistent: some people have a really hard time. There are always people who simply cannot finish certain sections or people who collapse under the pressure. This list is going to look at the ten people who had the worst experiences in the final. For some of them, they overcame the … Continue reading Ten Most Memorable Struggles in the Final
