TJ Lavin stated he’d been waiting for over decade for Bananas to face Wes in elimination, and the moment finally arrived on Total Madness. If it wasn’t a spoiler, this would have been a headline for the season and showcased in every promo. This is a event, and certainly a moment generating buzz around the The Challenge. Throughout Challenge history, we’ve seen various clashes of … Continue reading 20 Blockbuster Challenge Eliminations

Here are ten people who viewers want to see return to The Challenge even … Continue reading 10 Competitors Who’ve Never Seen a Final But Should Return
Last year, during The Challenge off season, I wrote about a few seasons that changes the trajectory for the Real World/Road Rules/ Challenge franchise (Inferno 3, Real World: Las Vegas, Rivals 2, Road Rules Maximum Velocity Tour, Real World: Brooklyn, and The Gauntlet). We’re back in the off season, so I wanted to pick up this series of posts. This time, I want to look … Continue reading Game Changers: Real World St. Thomas
On Wednesday’s episode we saw Theo go home. He had been fighting an uphill battle, but Providing Ground #4 sent him packing. He fought through three eliminations and made it far into the game only to lose. Meanwhile, some of the guys on his team haven’t been in a single elimination yet. Theo isn’t alone. Here are some people who won multiple eliminations only to … Continue reading People Who Won a Lot, But Still Missed the Final
The Real World is officially back… on Facebook Watch this time. While the season is simply called “Real World Atlanta,” that does not pay respect to the 32 prior seasons of the show. That is a lot of history and a lot of people have viewed the show over the years. Here is my ranking of all thirty-two prior seasons. This is clearly biased, but I do … Continue reading All Thirty Two Real World Seasons Ranked
As predictable as half of the Challenge cast tends to be, the other half of the cast tends to be a wild crapshoot. Let’s look at Vendettas for example. Of course there’s Bananas, Leroy, Cara Maria and Zach. Then, we have Brad returning, Natalie from Big Brother, Kyle from Georgie Shore, and Veronica continuing her “born again rookie” era. A good returner can make for … Continue reading 10 Returns That Could Make Challenge 34 Exciting
This week, we saw Bananas compete against his new enemy Joss. While this was the main event, Tony and Sylvia also competed against each other. Both of these Real World Skeleton roommates had bad blood after Invasion, but it seems like there wasn’t a lot of anger when Sylvia eliminated Tony this season. This also isn’t the first time former roommates had to face each … Continue reading Every Time Former Cast Mates Battled in Elimination
Between Invasion and Dirty Thirty, we’ve seen a good number of people returning to The Challenge. Whether is was a Road Ruler like Shane, Veronica or Derrick, or a one-Challenge-wonder like Marie, we’ve seen some faces recently that many people thought we’d never see again. As we begin to hear peeps about Challenge 31, many fans are hopeful that we’ll get a returner who is … Continue reading 10 Challengers Who Could Be the Next Great Return
Happy birthday to The Real World! The MTV staple turns 25 today, and to celebrate, I’m compiling a list of the most memorable fights in the show’s history. Anyone who has ever seen the show knows that the drama is one of the biggest elements, and over the years we’ve seen a lot of drama. Here are some of the moments that kept us glued … Continue reading 25 Biggest Real World Fights
At the end of last week’s episode of The Challenge: Invasion we saw half of the Champion elimination. The girls fought in Knot So Fast and right before the men competed, the episode ended. This is not new. Bananas and Darrell’s elimination was separated into two episodes. The Nelson/ Cory fight and Cory/ Shane elimination were separated into two episodes. This isn’t new. We’ve seen cliffhanger … Continue reading Are Cliffhangers Ruining This Season of The Challenge?
We all know The Real World and The Challenge loves a good fight. Despite the fact that people set sent home for fighting, production always includes these fights in the promos to lure in viewers. This week we saw Theo get kicked off Real World Bad Blood for violating the “no fighting” rule. I’d really like to see his contract so see what this rule … Continue reading 10 People Who Did Worse than Theo… and Stayed in the House!
In honor of the new Real World season premiering this week, let’s check out some of the more recent Real World seasons were cast members left each other with “bad blood.” While some of these people may have made amends (thanks to Challenges like “Rivals”) others still have beef with their former roommates. Jasmine & Jonna (Real World Cancun) Despite the fact that Jonna came … Continue reading Real Worlders Who Left With Bad Blood
