Season 36 is an odd season of The Challenge. The cast is currently quarantining, and we know some people will get dropped in this process. During past seasons, it’s been fun to speculate around themes. Sometimes the themes are dead obvious when the cast is discovered. Exes 2 and Battle of the Seasons fall into this category. Other times, the cast gives us no clues … Continue reading Season 36: What Format Should We See?
Another season of The Challenge is embarking, and in an era of COVID, The Challenge must move forward. As I always do with cast reveals, I am going to give credit to the team at Vevmo. While I know a lot of the names on the cast, I’d never get the full list without their inside knowledge. If you’re interested in casting, formate, and eliminations … Continue reading The Challenge 36: Official Cast
In the middle years of The Challenge, there were a lot of big names who never quite got a gold medal. One of the more notable names is Jenn Grijalva, an alumnae from Real World: Denver. She quickly became notable for her feisty attitude and ability to perform. While she had a few notable successes on field, she had just as many disappointments. Over the … Continue reading Jenn Grijalva: One of the Best or Worst?
Making it to the end of a Challenge can be a hard task. Some people, such as Cara Maria, have seemed to perfected the art. Other people are dealt a series of tough hands. This week we saw a Purge, where Joss was sent home due to Kayleigh’s poor performance. Both of these competitors have been victims to a series of twists throughout their Challenge … Continue reading Ten Competitors With the Absolute Worst Luck
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
Luck plays a big role in Challenge success, and some people seem to get all the worst luck on The Challenge. Whether it’s multiple quitting partners, numerous injuries, or a series of eliminations, these people have to battle season after season. On the other hand, there are people who have benefited from great luck on The Challenge. This season, Paulie & Natalie are a great … Continue reading Eight Cases of Incredible Luck on The Challenge
It started on Cutthroat when Tina and CT showed up as “heady hitters,” taking Bananas and Theresa out in the process. Then, Zach and CT came in and took out Abe and his brother Mike on Bloodlines. Last season we lost Joss, Shane, Britni, and Veronica to the Mercenaries. This season, we may lose Faith & Angela to Ashley & Hunter as they emerged as … Continue reading Mercenaries: Is the Twist Great?
The Challenge is no stranger to hooking up, and this season we’ve seen a lot of it. While some hook ups are just for fun, others cause ripples that impact the course of the game. Throughout the history of The Challenge, we’ve seen a number of no-so-secret hook ups ruining someone’s game. For this list, I am not including established couples, even if they began … Continue reading Challenge Hook-Ups that Impacted the Game
March is National Women’s Month, and to celebrate I wanted to take a lot at some of the most influential women to ever appear on The Challenge. These are the women who changed the way the game is played and invented new strategies to make it to the final. Most Challengers have left some type of a mark on The Challenge, but these are the … Continue reading 20 Women Who Revolutionized The Challenge
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
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
Two teams have disappeared from the Rivals 3 house, and as a result we got Amanda and Nelson in the house. Now that the second team is gone, TJ announced that we have a replacement: Devin and Cheyenne. This team lost in the first Jungle, and for some reason they are getting a second chance. This marks the third time an eliminated cast member has … Continue reading Do Devin & Cheyenne Deserve a Second Chance?
