Now I know none of you watch 'The Challenge' but I have been obsessed since this current season (Season 29) just ended.
I basically went back and watched some of the older seasons and they've been ridiculously good.
Basically it's Survivor meets Big Brother.

Basically they chuck anyone that has been on The Real World (or a few other MTV shows) onto a "Challenge" which they must compete against each-other either as individuals or as teams for a cash prize at the end.
This show has been on since 1998 and is about to go into it's 30th Season and is currently filming the 31st season (Season 29 just ended on TV this last week).

The kicker is, people that have competed in the past can continue to compete in future seasons, Some people have done more than 15 Challenges.
It's an interesting show. Like an uncensored Big Brother where they just throw booze down people's throats.



Best Bits from one of the more notable stars.



The show isn't without it's heartache. One popular contestant competed, was diagnosed with Cancer. Over came the cancer. Fell in and out of love. Competed with her Ex on a season where her cancer came back and she died prior to the season being aired.

The dynamics of the show are very interesting. This next season is basically taking Professional Athletes against former Winners of 'The Challenge'.

I watch it!!! Overall I think the level of strategy is weak compared to Survivor and Big Brother but the challenges are soooo much better, very innovative and exciting rather than the same ones over and over again each season. And the house antics are amazing. Such an underrated reality series! I wish they didn't add Are You The One contestants to the mix but what can you do. Very excited for Champs vs. Pros!

Edit: Oh this past season was the first one you watched? ohmy.gif Glad you're catching up on the old ones! I can't even begin to list all of my favorites but Paula and Sarah come to mind. Ashley was my favorite from this past season, really didn't expect her to win!

omgggg someone else that watches The Challenge. The other forum I post at, they've all watched every season, so it's tough to get a real un-biased opinion of what I've seen.

I've watched (in reverse order) Rivals 3 (THAT ENDING), Battle of the Bloodlines, Cutthroat (my favorite season), Fresh Meat 2, The Ruins, The Duel 2, The Island and one of the Gauntlet seasons. Excited to see Veronica returning for 2 seasons (30, 31). It makes me feel like I have some connection to the earlier seasons.

The strategy is, yes, weak compared to Survivor/Big Brother.. but still exists (how any of these idiots can let Banana's last past week 1 is beyond me).

I've only season 2 Seasons with Sarah it in (Cutthroat, Rivals 3)* but she's awesome. No doubt she will never return, but if she did *.*
I'm a sucker for Camila and Cara-Maria. I would love to see Wes compete in a live season as well.

* if she was in any other season I listed, I probably forgot all about her.

This season has been brilliant. I wish they would have just done it proper. This last elimination made no sense.
The weekly Specials have been great too.. I really wish they'd cut Banana's for one season so Sarah + Evelyn would come back.

Just finished the Finals. Well deserved win by Cara and Darrell.
Can't believe they lost Fresh Meat and now are the winners of Champs vs Pros.
I'm assuming we're getting a Reunion since there's another Special next week? Could be wrong.
Lolo needs to be on every season going forward.

Wait, was there a special every week!? I only just saw the one with Zach and Ashley on it during the finale, which was really cool. I fast-forward through the commercials but will have to re-watch if there was a special on each episode!

A good season indeed, but I was kinda watching just for CM Punk and lost interest after his elimination. I'm not expecting a reunion since it wasn't considered a full season, wouldn't mind being wrong though. I'm excited for the next season starting so soon although I'll have a hard time keeping up with Big Brother in full swing!

Yeah, there has been a special every week during Champs vs. Pros.
From memory... Crazy Moments... A Girls Episode... Eliminations... Champions (Camila was in the top 4 wtf)... There's another one next week too.
A lot of the information was the same week over week.. I think you probably saw the Champions episode where Ashley K got a Honorable Mention for being a Champion? That was the latest one and had Ashley K/Zach.

Pre-Season Hype Episode Aired.
Very one sided. We didn't see anything from Dario, Darrell, Derrick (vet), Hunter, Shane, Ashley M and Jenna.
Perhaps they don't do well (Darrell not doing well would shock me).
Not a fan of Newbies, just, give us Vets. You were building up to it.

This. Especially with it being season 30 I was hoping to see as many vets as possible. Derrick is an all-time fave though so I'm very glad for him to be back!

I mean, they got Nicole but not Nany? wacko.gif

So. Episode 1.

Ashley M - So disappointed. What was that?
Aneesa - I love her.
CT - He better not come back.. that's like a free pass if he does?
Cory - Babie Dick kink.gif
Darrell - Wow. Luck was not on his side.
Derrick K - Wow. His cast photo. He still has it going on.
Devin - K. I'm in. I know he's gonna play dirty
Jemmye - YAAAAAASSSS
Jenna - Someone said it best. It's probably best to have no brains.

This episode felt odd. They should have just not had the Challenge/Elimination. For me, I don't know a lot of these people.
I love the Redemption Twist however.
Looks like (and sounds like) it's gonna be an amazing season.

Apparently the next two season are Battle of the Bloodlines (2) and Champs vs Pros (2)
Coral was brought back for one of the two

Shane/Simone and Louise/Lolo for Rivals 4 please.
I can't believe they didn't have cameras for one of the juiciest sounding fights ever.
