If you watched War of the Worlds 2 during its original run, you might remember commercials advertising Challenge-sponsored Spartan Races and a “chance to appear on a future season of The Challenge.” We know this has no impact on season 35, but does it mean anything for season 36? A bunch of Challengers showed up to sponsor the events. We had Tony & Jemmye, Brad … Continue reading Is Another Fresh Meat Coming?
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.

After 19 seasons (seventeen regular, two spin-off), Bananas’s Challenge career is more of … Continue reading Johnny Bananas: Every Season Ranked
Six prior Challenge champions have been spotted at Universal Studios filming a mini-special according to Vevmo. This special is likely akin to the prior Universal Specials we’ve seen in the past. One with Hunter, Leroy, Cara Maria, and Jemmye and one with Shane, Ashley K., Zach, and Laurel. For those who are unfamiliar, these specials are usually inserted prior to commercial breaks during the evening. … Continue reading Various Challenge Champions Filming Challenge Special
MTV loves to remind us that Dirty Thirty, Vendettas, and Final Reckoning are a trilogy. Though most of the connections between the three seasons seem forced, fans have accepted these three seasons as a cohesive unit. For this reason, I am going to be ranking every single cast member from these shows. My rankings will be based on a number of factors such as: prominence … Continue reading Ranking Every Single Cast Member from the Trilogy
