Is Another Fresh Meat Coming?

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?

Can Bananas Ever Win Again?

Johnny Bananas won Rivals 3 and became the first 6-time champ in Challenge history. Six seasons later and he is still a 6-time champ (unless you count the Champ vs. Stars spinoff).

Seven Challenge Relationships Where The Hate is Real

A recent trip to Maury revealed a surprising fact about Bananas’s relationship with Wes: they don’t actually hate each other. In fact, they’re basically just using each other to advance their careers on The Challenge.

While this “rivalry” may be a made-for-TV story, I do think … Continue reading Seven Challenge Relationships Where The Hate is Real

Who Would Have Taken the Money: Every Final Reckoning Competitor
