War of the Worlds, War of the Worlds 2, and War of the Worlds 3 Total Madness. They were supposed to be a War trilogy, but production changed their minds at the last minute.

This week we saw a disoriented Jay get sent home by production. After getting rocked by production, he became delusional and a medic determined he was unfit to continue.

Natalie (Final Reckoning) … Continue reading Ten Challengers Injured During Eliminations

Jay missed all three of his balls and … Continue reading The Challenge Total Madness: Top Moments from Episode 6
Jay just got sent into hist third consecutive elimination. He already has two red skulls while the eleven remaining guys in the house still need their ticket to run the final. It’s common for rookies to get the thrown into early eliminations, but Total Madness is different. Eliminations aren’t a death sentence, they’re a necessity.

Jay has won the first elimination of the season and he’s the first person to have a red skull engraved on his helmet. This means he’s allowed to compete in the final because he has emerged victorious from an elimination.

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.
