Five years ago, MTV took a risk and brought in 15 Bloodlines to compete with their relatives. Within a couple of years, the season faded into obscurity. At the time, The Challenge was getting cast members from two sources: The Real World and Are You the One? In fact, this was the second season where Are You the One? could compete. Prior to Battle of … Continue reading Where Did All the Bloodlines Go?
Each season, we see the format get tweaked a little bit. While some elements of the game have become mainstays since their introduction (like eliminations or overnight finals), others only appeared once or for a handful of seasons. These are the elements introduced to trick cast members and make a season different from its predecessors. A twist isn’t going to be the core format of … Continue reading Ten Worst Challenge Twists Ever
Ever since Invasion, Cara Maria has been able to bury her beef with Bananas and the vets and join forces with the old schoolers. On Vendettas and Final Reckoning, she was particularly close with Bananas and Zach throughout the game. Well, it seems like things have changed. Case 1: Zach While filming the CT Wedding Special, MTV asked Challenge guests about their dream wedding and … Continue reading Cara Maria Separating From the Veterans Clique?
This week we saw Derrick join an elite club, the group of people who have eliminated Bananas. Not many people can claim to have defeated Bananas in a face-off, and the ones who have are typically elite competitors. Here is my ranking of those competitors and their skills based on their Bananas victory. 9. Tyler Johnny lost the very first elimination on his very first … Continue reading A Ranking of All Competitors Who Have Beat Bananas
Here we go… another season of The Challenge is really just around the corner, so I wanted to contribute to the speculation. Remember, these are just rumors. Vevmo has helped inform this list, and all people on this list are subject to change their availability. There is also a rumored show being filmed in the New York area about life after reality TV. Many of … Continue reading Challenge 30: Wild Cast Speculation
AS OF OCTOBER 4th, 2016 THIS POST IS OUT OF DATE. Please view the official cast list here. Alright guys! I’ve debated posting this for a while, as there are always plenty of cast rumors that emerge prior to departure for a Challenge season. Right now, availability calls for the 29th Challenge season have gone one. Very little is known about this season right now. … Continue reading Challenge 29: Wild Cast Speculation
Right were we left off. With a bunch of tired Challengers. 1. Confused All Day The second half of the Up All Night challenge begins, and the cast must solve a puzzle placing all eight of the night’s events in order and answering eight specific questions about the events. Of course, Sarah knows all of the answers so she and Bananas quickly win the challenge, giving … Continue reading Rivals 3: Top Moments from Episode 9
This is what happens when a tornado meets a volcano. 1. She’s Just Trippin’ The cast goes clubbin! As usual, some people dance, some people drink, and Tony bitches about his partner. When the cast gets back, Vince is joking around and probably reenacting some story. During this time he quickly turns and runs, knocking Camila down in the process resulting in bruises and a … Continue reading Rivals 3: Top Moments From Episode 8
This week, we saw Jamie and Kellyanne earn last place in the Road to Nowhere challenge. This poor performance was not an outlier, as these two have been doing poorly for the bulk of this season. Perhaps their Jungle win will turn thing around, but right not they are not meeting expectations. They’re not the only team to underwhelm. Here’s a list of teams, in no order, … Continue reading 10 Teams Who Underwhelmed
Well, the pace of the season is picking up, but the drama isn’t stopping. 1. Return From Hell The cast goes clubbin’, and just like when Amanda came into the house, Devin feels he has nothing to lose. So he decides call call out everyone, including Cory who is crushing on Cheyenne. He tells everyone he is going to vote them in, not that he … Continue reading Rivals 3: Top Moments From Episode 7
A challenge AND and elimination in one episode? … not so fast. 1. The Naked Mile This week, we actually get a Challenge! It’s called Laps Of Judgement. There are 5 stations, and teams must complete one of two tasks then run their token of completion up a series of steps. Eating cow balls or cow brains. Tossing five rocks atop a barrel or lassoing the … Continue reading Rivals 3: Top Moments From Episode 6
Half a challenge AND an elimination. A new record for this season! 1. The Last Limb The Out On a Limb challenge continues from last week, with a bunch of mediocre team competing. Bananas and Sarah almost complete the mission, though Sarah falls off the final platform. On the other hand, Johnny and Jessica as well as Jamie and Kellyanne fail to make it to the final … Continue reading Rivals 3: Top Moments From Episode 5
