Ten People Basically Edited Out of Seasons

The second half of Total Madness saw Dee vanish from our screens. Production stated they would continue airing the season “as normal,” but clearly there has been a lot of chopping on the edit. Camila received a similar edit on Dirty Thirty after her racist tirade, receiving no confessionals. Meanwhile, other competitors have appeared on Challenges but barely got any recognition. While they never formally … Continue reading Ten People Basically Edited Out of Seasons

Ten Most Feared Challenge Rookies

Each season of The Challenge, we get some newbies thrown into the mix. Typically, we get a bunch of sacrificial lambs, but we occasionally we see newbies who intimidate the veterans. Sometimes these people live up to the expectations, other times their popcorn muscles turn them into flops. This week we saw Fessy take out Jordan, proving he’s a solid competitor.

11 Gray Zone Instances of Violence on The Challenge

Leroy Garrett: One of the Best or One of the Worst?

After analyzing Danny last week, I was surprised by how many people compared him to Leroy. I know Leroy doesn’t have the best record, but I wouldn’t call him the worst. At this point in time, he’s about to embark on his eleventh season. He was the most appearances for a male who hasn’t won, but he’s only seen three finals.

Why Wasn’t Camila Kicked Off?

After an offensive and potentially dangerous evening, we saw the most shocking Camilinator appearance yet.

Many fans are outraged, claiming Camila’s behavior warranted her departure from the competition. In regards … Continue reading Why Wasn’t Camila Kicked Off?
