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. If it wasn’t a spoiler, this would have been a headline for the season and showcased in every promo. This is a event, and certainly a moment generating buzz around the The Challenge. 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
The Take Shelter elimination was played in two heats. The first part, make a mess and block your opponent’s door from opening. The second part, clean up the mess made by your opponent. After the first heat it seemed like CT made a bigger mess for Jay to clean up and he had the edge going into that half. Then, Jay pulled out a victory. Jaws dropped, … Continue reading Did CT Throw His Elimination Against Jay?

For the “first time ever,” Johnny Bananas and Wes have decided to put their rivalry to the side and work together. The two veterans have a history of battling against each other. On Total Madness, they’re going to try to battle against the other people rather than target each other. In episode one, we even saw Bananas console Wes. This begs the question, can this … Continue reading Can a Bananas & Wes Alliance Work?
Welcome to a new season and more 90 minute episodes! We have a lot of familiar faces, and a few people notably absent. 1. Madness in a Barrel The cast arrives in Prague and are immediately greeted with a challenge (and evidently a bunch of TJ’s voice overs). The challenge is called Battle Lines, and the goal is to pull a barrel using a rope, do … Continue reading The Challenge Total Madness: Top Moments from Episode 1
Want to win The Challenge: Total Madness? You’ll also need to win an elimination. Throughout history, The Challenge has had many people battle their way to victory. They’ve also had a lot of people get to the final without seeing a single elimination. Some of these people got crazy lucky, and some people were just lay-ups.

Could … Continue reading Kyle Christie: One of the Best or Worst on Total Madness?
Remember back in 2013 when CT won Rivals 2, his 9th season? Since then The Challenge hasn’t been too bad to him. He continued to do The Challenge until Exes 2, took a brief hiatus after that season (understandably), then returned on Invasion of The Champions. On that return, he won. So, he proved he’s a great competitor. He returned again on Dirty Thirty and … Continue reading Should CT Have Retired After War of the Worlds 2
MTV is in full promo swing right now! And they posted a video where they asked Total Madness cast members which other Challenger they were happy to NOT see on this season. The winner: Cara Maria. Second place: Paulie. A couple of people said other names. Wes said Georgia, and Rogan said Theo. Then Ashley and CT just deflected the question. But let’s be honest, … Continue reading Cast Members Who Won’t Be Missed on Total Madness
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.
