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. He’s probably not screwed at this point in the game, at least no more screwed than he was to begin with. On the other hand, … Continue reading Who Will Be Screwed By the Red Skull Twist?
Welcome to a new season and more 90 minute episodes! We have a lot of familiar faces, and a few people notably absent. 1. Madness in a Barrel The cast arrives in Prague and are immediately greeted with a challenge (and evidently a bunch of TJ’s voice overs). The challenge is called Battle Lines, and the goal is to pull a barrel using a rope, do … Continue reading The Challenge Total Madness: Top Moments from Episode 1
I’ve done this with prior seasons, so now I’m going to be taking a look at stats for the players on Total Madness. For this list, I can only really look at the returners with prior Challenge experience. The newcomers will have a brief bio based upon their prior experiences and relationships with existing cast members. They don’t have stats direct stats toward The Challenge, … Continue reading The Challenge Total Madness: Challenger Stats
Last night we saw the two-hour War of the Worlds 2 reunion hosted by Champs vs. Stars Alumnae Justina Valentina and professional mumbler Nick “Swaggy P” Young. The show presented us with a lot of rehashed drama mixed with some new tidbits of information. In terms of the information learned, I would definitely say the War of the Worlds 1 reunion was more informative. Still, … Continue reading What We Learned from the War of the Worlds 2 Reunion
We’re getting closer to the final… so I guess we’re shortening episodes to 60 minutes to make the season longer. 1. Strength or Numbers After an impressive victory against Jenny, Tori has established herself as the strongest girl in the game. To her surprise, alliances seem to take priority. CT informs Tori that she’ll be voted into elimination, even if UK wins. With the final rapidly … Continue reading The Challenge War of the Worlds 2: Top Moments from Episode 14
Last week we saw the UK men rally together and put a target on Dee’s back. They even threw a mission to ensure they’d have the power to send her into elimination. Everything was going according to plan until the men told Dee they’d be sending her into the Proving Ground. The plan was discussed, Leroy seemed to be on board, but Dee freaked out. … Continue reading Was Team UK Wrong to Target Dee?
Congratulations Jordan and Tori! 1. Party of One The cast returns from The Proving Ground and a newly engaged Jordan and Tori are ecstatic. Nany organizes an engagement party and the whole cast puts their drama aside to celebrate the love. There is one exception, Cara Maria. She refuses to attend even though Paulie can put the game to the side and enjoy the moment … Continue reading The Challenge War of the Worlds 2: Top Moments from Episode 12
As one alliance crumbles, one bond becomes stronger than ever before. 1. Wall Walkers This week teams are playing Temple Wall Traverse. TJ announces the cast will need to climb across a series of climbing walls and Ninja says “cool.” Their goal is to hang up tiles on their corresponding hooks. Meanwhile, the opposing team is pedaling away to make the walls move, making traversing … Continue reading The Challenge War of the Worlds 2: Top Moments from Episode 11
It took 10 eliminations, but we finally got a Turncoat. Tori has left Team US and joined Team UK. Now that she’s on the team, she has may have to deal with a harsh reality: it was not a good move. Tori anticipated going into the Proving Ground against a US girl, but Kayleigh and Joss threw Georgia into elimination. If Tori eliminated a US … Continue reading Was Tori Smart to Switch Teams?
Oh how the mighty have fallen. After winning last season, Turbo has been sent home for semi-violent behavior on War of the Worlds 2. We see some of his fight with Jordan, security holding him back, and then TJ announces Turbo has left the show. Things escalated quickly, but there is more to this story than production showed us. Apparently Jordan and Tori had more … Continue reading Did Turbo Deserve to Be Sent Home from War of the Worlds 2
Two people leave. Many people fight. 1. Fight and Flight We resume in the middle of Jordan and Turbo’s fight. Jordan is mocking Turbo, and Turbo is ready to physically fight Jordan. Security steps in to hold Turbo back, but it takes four security guards to tame him. Meanwhile, Jordan sits back and watches Turbo get carried away. The rest of the house continues to … Continue reading The Challenge War of the Worlds 2: Top Moments from Episode 10
