A bunch of Challengers showed up to sponsor the events. We had Tony & Jemmye, Brad … Continue reading Is Another Fresh Meat Coming?

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

The Evolution of Cara Maria

This week, we saw Nany argue with Cara Maria over their differing styles of game play. Nany was surprised to see Cara Maria would not keep her safe if called into the Killing Floor.

I like Nany this … Continue reading The Evolution of Cara Maria

Things from Old Challenges You Won’t See on Today’s Challenges

The Challenge began during simpler times. Years ago, competitors were able to The Challenge, have a good time, and make it to the end, and take home a little bit of their team’s bank. Now, The Challenge takes place in a much more cut throat setting where people are secluded from their outside life and spend weeks competing, only to go home thanks to a … Continue reading Things from Old Challenges You Won’t See on Today’s Challenges
