The Challenge: Hold That Pose RECAP

We’re past the halfway point of this season’s MTV The Challenge: Free Agents. This season has proved to be a challenging one especially, since every contestant is on their own, being thrown with random teams/pairs every week for different challenges. It might seem like they’re in the safety of a team, but then the weekly challenge finishes and it’s obvious that everyone should be thinking on their own, because ultimately there will only be one winner.

 

Eliminated: Preston & Aneesa

 

If you missed the craziness check out our slideshow from last night’s episode.

The Challenge: Free Agents

It’s that time a year again! My favourite time is challenge time, yep a brand spackin’ new season of MTV’s The Challenge premiers on Thursday April 10th 10pmET.

So instead of being paired up in teams like they usually are, this season is all about going solo. It’ll most likely be one winner for the girls, and one winner for the boys. Either way, it’s going to be cray!

Check out the trailer below.

RIVALS II: This Is the End…for Diem

Last night’s episode of MTV’s The Challenge:Rivals II was absolute insanity. There was no elimination last night, but we did get to see a whole lot of drama in the house, especially after the girls had their final challenge.

There are only four girl teams left…and it all came down to last night’s final challenge….every team wants to win that first spot and win their ticket to the final race. Cara and Cooke are on their own when the other 3 teams decide they want C & C voted into the jungle…of course that’s if Cara and Cooke don’t win immunity. Ha-Ha!

CandC

I’ve never been a fan of Cara…but this season that has all changed thanks to Cooke. Cooke and Cara have fought through countless jungles…they’ve sent teams home and I think they deserve to be in the final race. They’ve had a target on their backs since day one…and it’s no question as to why they are my favourites right now. Having said that, this final challenge was extremely nerve wracking, I literally couldn’t breathe until it was over. It was a good ol’ game of simon says…the girls were chained to their partner, they had to run across the scorching hot beach to a tent where a machine signalled out the colours to them. Then they had to run back to the start line and assemble the colours in the appropriate order. There were two heats…so whoever came in last in the first heat automatically was sent to the jungle.

I did not expect my girls to win this round…I mean it’s the most important race and I just assumed Emily and Paula would kill it. Right off the start Em and Paula are zooming down the beach, C and C are in second…Diem and Aneesa are following in third and Jemmye is having a hard time running alongside Camila. The teams reach the tent to memorize their signals…Cooke and Cara are the first ones to get it, they zoom off leaving Em and Paula stunned. Diem finds herself sketching out when she can’t hold on to the colours in her head, Aneesa is standing there watching her partner completely break down. By this point the other 3 teams are down the beach…Cooke and Cara complete their order coming in first. Em and Paula come in second and Jemmye and Camila are in third. Diem and Aneesa are automatically sent to the jungle. Diem’s face…I just wish I had a picture….this is exactly what she didn’t want, she never wanted to see a jungle.

DiandA

In the second heat, it was Cooke and Cara against powerhouse Em and Paula. This was literally make or break, the boys were standing their watching the best entertainment of their lives. Somehow, Cara pulls through and continues her pace with Cooke. They make it to the tent a few seconds after Em and Paula, but again they’re the first ones out as Cara promises Cooke she’s got the order. For a few minutes I was like….this is where Cara f***s everything up!!

Cara and Cooke make it back to assemble the colours…by this point Em and Paula are caught up but C and C fight through and they end up winning first place!!!! When TJ blew that horn…wow I couldn’t be happier for these two girls. Everyone else was stunned…Diem was boiling with rage at the sight of Cooke celebrating. The guys were going nuts because everyone knows the house is about to be ripped apart…nobody thought Cooke and Cara would win immunity,

Back at the house….the girls are scrambling to lock down their votes. For the first time in the game, Em and Paula are legitimately facing the jungle and they are scared sh*tless. And this is why I love Jemmye and Camila. Not once did they beg the guys to not vote them in…they stayed out of it all.  Even though they could be facing the jungle…they sure as hell knew they would be coming back from it.

Paula is begging Jordan and Marlon not to vote for them, she has tears in her eyes…Jemmye walks by and turns to the boys and tells them she def can’t cry like that. Then everything blows up and Jemmye calls out Em and Paula for begging like a bunch of you know whats…somehow Diem gets involved…and then Jemmye is calling Diem an idiot…..how could she fall for CT all over again…everyone knows how he is and that he’s hooked up with everyone. The problem was…Diem wanted to go against Jem and Camila because she thinks she can beat them…however CT and Wes were saying they were going to vote in Em and Paula for whatever reasons. Diem saw this as CT playing her and not giving her what she wanted. And he really didn’t care because he can’t hold her hand forever…AND he doesn’t owe her anything. I love when he asked her why did you lose the final challenge! All you had to do was not come in last place!! Amazing.

PaulaEmily

So Diem is having a full out psycho attack…with her red wine in her hand she’s walking through the house looking for trouble. Aneesa is trying to get her to lay off and go to sleep. Diem isn’t having it, she has a thing out for Cooke I don’t know why. She starts giving Cooke the evil eye because Cooke is totally care free at this point. Anyone in Diem’s way is open for fire. Also, if Cooke and Cara lost the challenge there would be no fighting…the house is a mess because Cooke and Cara won immunity. Revenge is so sweet!

CamandJem

At the deliberations, Jordan and Marlon surprisingly vote for Jem and Camila. I have to respect Jordan’s decision as he based it on the fact Em and Paula have won almost every challenge, they deserve to see the finals…they fought hard enough. And I agree, they were the powerhouse of the game…like Cooke and Cara they proved themselves…I think it’s time for Diem and Aneesa to do the same.

So the final jungle will be Diem and Aneesa VS Jemmye and Camila.

I’ve always been Team NOLA so I hope I see Jem and Cam back in the game for the final race.

Who do you guys think will win the jungle?

RIVALS II: The Couples Quiz

Still recovering from last week’s bizarre elimination round, the roomies have all banded together in their quest to bring down Theresa. When did this girl become Pucket’s most hated?

rivalsII

By innocently throwing away her vote for LeRoy, Theresa allowed Diem to effortlessly stir the pot, and when Diem’s final vote sent Leroy into eliminations, Theresa decides she can no longer trust ANYONE in the house. Girl, this isn’t a game of friendship, people are ready to attack and the fact that she was so surprised by Diem’s move, proves how little she knows about the challenge.

Moving on!…It’s a girl elimination week, which means the drama meters were boiling, especially because we’re halfway to the final challenge. TJ has a sneaky deaky challenge lined up, one that tests how well the rival teams know each other. One team member is tied up to a rope, suspended over the water ( as usual) and the other teammate has to answer questions, with the same answers their partner gave. Emily and Paula obviously killed the game like they always do, winning first place and winning immunity from eliminations.

Jemmye and Camilla were the first team to go down, so they automatically get sent to eliminations.  This game also added fire to the flame, as some questions asked team members who they thought was the fakest in the house? Or who needed the most attention in the house? The worst part was, if you answered wrong, you would’ve proven to the entire house what you thought of that person, then TJ named who your partner really chose …so now two people hate you in the house! It happened to Jemmye and Jonna, TJ asks Nany who Jonna thinks is fake in the house…and Jonna ends up saying  Jemmye. It was a big surprise for Jemmye, while she’s sitting on the side line, she flashes that ghetto girl grin like s**** about to go down NOLA style!

The guys have a laugh out of it, TJ asks CT which girl in the house is the trashiest…CT opts to not say anyone’s name and basically sends Wes into the waters. It was a very smart move on CT’s part.

Right away, Theresa is putting in work trying to get the rookie guys on her side. She asks them to vote in Diem and Aneesa, Jordan tells her that he has her back and they’re all good. After that, Jordan and Marlon are discussing their decision, when Johnny B overhears and decides to give them some words of advice. Obviously, the smartest choice would be to vote Theresa in because nobody wants her there. When TJ arrives, Jordan admits he promised Theresa one thing, but he’s going back on his word and voting for her anyways. Whatt’ya gonna do Theresa! This one’s for the books. Jasmine stands up before her name is even called…all like she’s ready for the battle, nothing can stop her, she always has the funniest walk when she knows she’s going into eliminations. TJ is quick to notice it and even asks her why she takes on a different attitude when she knows she could be going home. It’s so funny.

This elimination looked like fun, the two teams had to run on treadmills while throwing a ball across to their teammate, and then they had to dump the ball into a bin.  Looks easy but when you’re running your ass off..it becomes tricky. Oh and there’s a big muddy hole in the ground so if you fly off the treadmill…it’ll break the fall.

They seem to edit the eliminations the same, at first they make you think one team has it in the bag and then magically the other team wins. Jasmine and Theresa started off good, but when Jasmine takes a tumble…the momentum stops. Jemmye and Camilla end up winning…which is a good thing because we are all Team NOLA. But jasmine, you will be missed.

In the end, Jordan admits whatever feelings he has for Jonna are irrelevant because he’s trying to the win the big money. On the other side of the house, Nany is talking about Jonna and how she always needs a guy’s attention in her life, which sounds about right. Nany admits the reason her and Jonna are rivals are because of Jonna’s ex…Zach. There is a whole lot of drama behind these partners that the show doesn’t even show!

RIVALS II: Bad Charades, Sucky Teammates

Last night was another crazy episode of MTV’s The Challenge Rivals II. Right off the start, Marlon’s sexuality is the topic of discussion, with Derek admitting they hooked up the first night in the pool. Derek wasn’t sure if anyone else knew Marlon was gay, so he didn’t want to tell anyone. Jordan, who was on the same season with Marlon, told the other guys, Marlon admitted to them that he was bisexual. This surprises the other guys because Marlon couldn’t be a more Alpha male type. During their charades game, Leroy passes up the opportunity to act out Marlon, because he doesn’t really know the rookie. Knight jumps up and decides to act out Marlon…only nobody finds it funny…and a fight breaks out.

Knight

 

I love Knight, but sometimes he just acts like a 5-year old and doesn’t realize his actions are hurting other people. I don’t think it’s the right way to play the game, especially when you’re depending on the girls to vote for you. The fight breaks out between Marlon and Knight, and surprisingly Preston jumps in to save the day.

Jemmye

Trishelle and Aneesa some how get into a verbal argument, Trishelle is literally a nut job and she decides to pack up her bags and leave! I actually didn’t think she would go through with it, but she walks out, doesn’t even say bye to anyone and leaves her partner alone. Sarah…who we love..but hasn’t had the best luck with partners is stuck wondering what her fate will be. TJ shows up, which is always bad news. He tells Sarah they don’t have another partner for her,  therefore she has to leave! How can this happen again!!!

SarahShe really is a great competitor, and it sucks to see her leave because of her partner’s decision, but I don’t think she would’ve made it to the end with Trishelle. Next time she’s on a show, they should have 3 back up partners for her!

Challenge day, and it is another crazy obstacle. Partners have to climb up a shaky ladder, above water, and slide themselves across two ropes. It’s shaky and hard to keep still with your partner moving along with you, if you fall into the water you have to start again.

Ct WesKnight and Preston came in last, they were the only team that couldn’t make it to the end. This time, it was actually Knight’s fault, once he fell, he couldn’t get back onto the rope in time, poor Preston was hanging there the whole damn time!

Cara and Cooke

 

No surprise, Emily and Paula came in first, Johnny B and Frank came in first for the guys. The girls ended up voting for Derek and Robb to face Knight and Preston in the elimination round.

Teams had to battle it out with sticks that they had to break on their opponents body. The only thing, they were blindfolded and had to follow the instructions of their teammate from the side line. Robb and Derek won the first round against Preston.

Robb_Preston

 

Knight beat Derek for the second round, tying the game  up. For the final round, it was Robb vs Knight, and Knight came out of the woodwork to win this elimination for his team!

final round

 

We lost like four people in one episode, it was cray cray. In the end, Knight apologizes to Marlon for his actions. Marlon forgives him for now…and then hooks up with Nany! Oh Yeah!

 

 

RIVALS 2: 69?

rivalsIIWith the new season of MTV’s The Challenge:Rivals 2, the teams of two are sure to be subjected to some crazy ass challenges. Last night proving to be one of them…titled ’69’ by a few cast mates on Twitter. It started off with a little hip action sawing, working together to cut a piece of wood. Then, partners had to literally carry their other half upside down (69 style) through an obstacle course…grab a ball with their mouth…pass the ball down to the other person…and have them put the tiny ball into the opening of a pipe on the sand. It sounds really difficult, but evidently the biggest challenge was having your teammates crotch in your face…seemed like a few people couldn’t deal with that.

The guys had to be the funniest, for some reason Wes gave up right off the start. It was a girls elimination so he just didn’t feel like doing it. CT, who looked like he was having fun, kept going on with Knight, whose partner Preston quit as well. Knight and CT tried running the course together, until TJ kicked them off.

SawingSpeaking of teams, the pairing of some ‘rival’ teams are questionable…since Naomi had to leave Thailand for personal reasons, we found out Cooke’s new partner is……Cara Maria….?….? Really? I think she’s annoying and are they even rivals?, for Cooke it might be a blessing in red hair. Cooke is a rookie, but she’s strong and smart and with Cara Maria’s experience I think they’ll go far. For the girls, the team to beat right now is Emily and Paula. It seems like they will be the team to beat for the rest of the game, I can’t imagine any other team coming close to them. Maybe Jonna and Nany….or Cooke and Cara but even then E and P seem like a solid team. They came in first place again last night, giving them immunity from the elimination. Rookie team Anastasia and Jessica came in last which automatically puts them in the elimination round.

69Back at the house, the guys decide on who they want to vote for. The final tally goes for Cooke and Cara to battle it out with the rookies. I was pretty confident these two powerhouses would beat the rookies, but ya never know.

This season’s elimination battle looks similar to last season’s. I feel like they copied the same games, just gave them a different name and look. Last night’s game had both teams suspended in the air, above dirty looking water. Each team had to quickly saw away at a rope that would bring down the losing team right into the water. Before the round even started, Anastasia feels sick, she says her head is spinning and she can’t see straight. At this point, everyone is just sick of her and her rookie drama, C & C were waiting in their position, Cooke couldn’t wait any longer so she decided to let it all out and pee in the water below.

Elimination

Anastasia pulls it together, they go on with the challenge, a few editing cuts later we feel like Anastasia and Jessica might have a chance, but C & C pull through for the win, eliminating the rookie girls team. Who saw that one coming?

SIDE DRAMA:

Trishelle confronts CT about hooking up with Anastasia, of course CT denies it but everyone knows he’s lying. CT asks her why she’s talking about his sex life, somehow Frank gets involved and him and CT almost end up fighting, thank you God for Knight in shining armour. Frank starts crying, he runs to Johnny and tells him of his findings, Johnny laughs it off, and admits he’s super worried about his team’s fate if his partner is already crying in the first week.

Anastasia realizes she’s ‘that’ girl when Theresa tells her about CT and Diem. Anastasia is stunned at the news, as if she’s never watched The Challenge before! How do you not know about CT and Diem?…it’s like the greatest love story in the history of reality TV. She’s a dumbass and she knows it, CT hooked up with her and now she’s all upset and regretful. Sorry A, that still makes you the rookie ho even if you realize it. It’s time for her to leave when she starts a fight with CT, he fights back by saying he never promised her anything, they just hooked up…but she’s embarrassed so she has to put up a front and act all ‘independent woman’. Waste of time, later girl!

DumbassesJordan proves he’s a real man when he’s able to lift the same weights as Thor. If you don’t know, Jordan doesn’t really have a left hand, it’s more like a wrist, but that doesn’t stop him from challenging himself. A quality Sara really admires, and apparently Jordan has the hots for her as well. They hook up in the closet…it’ll be interesting to see where this one goes.

MTV’s The Challenge: Rivals II

Nothing tops off a new season of MTV’s The Challenge, and this season is no different with cast mates being paired up with their ‘enemies’. It’s the second season of ‘Rivals’ in the past three years…and I’ll admit I was hoping for a Vet VS Rookie matchup instead. But whatevs, the season was off to a great start last night, we got see a lot of fake shocked faces when they realized who they’d be paired up against.

What do you guys think of the teams? I would’ve liked to see a Johnny/Wes match up, I think they have more drama than CT/Wes. Poor Dunbar, he’s had no luck the last few times he’s been out to play and you can tell he’s already given up when he finds out he’s paired up with Tyrie. Tyrie looks like he’d be a good competitor, but he usually fails at everything, and proves muscles don’t mean squat. Derek/Robb, I really like them both, separately..I don’t know how far they will last, they just don’t seem like a strong team. Okay, Knight/Preston- I’m so sick of these two being paired together, like we get it, we know Knight gets annoyed atPreston, I love Preston but gawd! He’s really bad in these challenges! I would’ve liked to see Knight with the other kid he hated from his season…what was his name?

Let me just say from now, Emily and Paula will win it for the girls. It will be a clean sweep, they are by far the strongest team, they have experience and strength…and compared to the other girls they’re just on another level. I think Jonna and Nany will go far…I hope Naomi/Cooke can figure their s*** out because Naomi is flipping’ entertaining to watch. Diem/Aneesa is a tricky one, I like them both, I hope they get far, I think the fact that they know most of the guys will keep them around for long. I’m honestly just happy Jasmine is back, when she gets in her ‘moods’ she has me on the floor dying of laughter.

For the guys, I’m hoping CT can finally win one, but in the past Wes is known to do some stupid s***…on the flip side he has won a challenge so maybe that’ll help. Zach and Trey are looking good so far, they won last night’s Challenge, giving them immunity for the elimination. They look good, Trey is super optimistic, he wants to prove himself and Zach just needs to make sure his hair doesn’t get in the way.

Last night’s episode ended off with a big bombshell, TJ tells the house that the girls will be deciding who goes into elimination for the guys, and the guys will decide for the girls. AKA all the alliances the guys/girls made with each other, are pointless. The girls decide on Robb and Derek against the last place Dunbar and Tyrie.

The best part of last night’s episode was CT and Diem, and I’m sure everyone felt the same. Even you Aneesa!! They’re like the ultimate love story that ever came out of one of these challenges, and hopefully this season we’ll get to see more of them.

Talk to me, Tweet to me what did you guys think of last night’s premiere?

Battle Of The Season: Who Won!

MTV CanadaAnother season bites the dust! I can’t believe an entire season of MTV’s The Challenge:Battle of the Seasons has come and gone. It felt like yesterday we were writing about who we thought would be the winners. My bets were on Team Austin…but who even remembers them being on the show? With Team Austin being the Veteran team getting booted off in the first two weeks- we knew this season would a bring a lot more rookie drama.

We also knew halfway through the season, Team San Diego was looking mighty fine for the first place spot, since they were clearly the team that was controlling the game. Vegas seemed like a good competitor, up until Nany and Alton were booted off and Vegas was left with Dustin and Trishelle. With a big surprise win last week, Vegas solidified their entrance into the final challenge by winning power team. They made it to the finish line and came in second place, which is amazing for the only 2 person team left in the game.

Of course Team San Diego came in first winning the grand prize of $250,000. That had to be split between4 players but hey $62k isn’t too shabby. Now some people might argue that it should’ve been split between 3 of their teammates, since Sam was the useless player. Like it or not, she made it across the finish line, and she had to endure the abuse from Zach and Frank for the weeks leading up to the final. I will say this, if you’re not in great physical shape, don’t agree to do one of these shows because you’re making yourself look like an idiot, and you’re straight up screwing over your team. Devyn was easily holding her team back during the final race, but at least she was funny about it. Besides Devyn looks like she’s in shape, but she’s a big booty *** and it was slowin’ her down!

BOTS

The challenge itself didn’t look that intense. I’ve seen a few of these final races and I was definitely expecting a lot more. They did have to sleep overnight in the desert…regardless it didn’t look as harsh as when Johnny Bananas had to do it with Tyler.

The reunion was up right after the final episode. Frank and Sam still hate each other, and Sam looks like she ate all her money because she gained weight. She def can’t do a challenge now. Devyn was looking stunnin’ in her pageant dress, and admitted her and Eric broke up a few weeks after she left Africa. Marie and Robb were civil, and Marie was calm throughout the hour which I was happy to see.

Surprisingly, Zach and Jonna have since broken up, apparently because Zach is immature and not ready for a serious relationship. During the show Jonna tweeted, ‘WE. Are never ever ever…’- hmmm. Drrrrama. BTW, Zach looked horrendous with his even longer hair and trashy clothing, but still looked better than Sam.

Johnny Moseley was hosting the reunion show…and he obviously needs to re-evaluate his hairstyle because it’s just not doing anything for him.

Until next time!

PS. Word around the net is the new season of The Real World Season 28 will be in Portland,Oregon.

Battle of the Seasons: Recap!

Cray Cray in Africay! Tonight’s episode of MTV’s The Challenge:Battle of the Seasons started off with the challenge between the final 4 teams.  You know it’s about to be a cray episode when the challenge starts off right at the top of the hour!

The final challenge before the ‘final’ challenge was the one where they get shot off some sort of slide into the water, the one in the previews where we see Zach flying into the air screaming at the top of his lungs. Yep, it sure was a good one to end off with. Teams had to pair up, one person driving the four wheeler that pulls the other teammate who is being shot out from the slide- into the water, and swimming to a dock. The swimmer has to then get onto the dock, which proved challenging for Sarah…ring a bell…and then swim back to shore.

Teams with 4 people would do it twice..and obviously the two person teams (Cancun & Vegas) would use their one score. Dustin and Trishelle go first, which proves to their advantage because Dustin absolutely kills his time, coming in first and winning Team Vegas power team.

vegas

Cancun does pretty bad, Derek is winded by the first leg of the swim, he’s slow getting back to the shore. The biggest surprise was Team San Diego. For some reason Ashley stalls the four wheeler, so Frank doesn’t really get shot out of the slide, which has him swimming an even longer distance than everybody else. This causes a huge set back for their team, but they manage to come in second last.

SD

It’s been a BIG turn of events for Team Vegas, after Nany and Alton got booted off, it looked like Vegas was on their way out. Dustin refused to continue on with Trishelle…and Trishelle just blamed Dustin for everything. It comes as a HUGE surprise that they were power team, and had opportunity to choose the other team to go into eliminations with Cancun. Obviously, Vegas chooses San Diego because they hate them and vice versa. It is a pivotal moment for SD because they’ve been running the game thus far, but are now facing the possibility of being sent home.

Team Brooklyn is lookin’ good at this point, with SD being the only other 4 person team and going into the final eliminations, they might start off the final race with the only 4 person squad! They’ve definitely come a long way…and I’m rooting for them.

BK

San Diego (Ashley & Frank) end up beating out Cancun (Jonna & Derek) after a grueling strategy game in the middle of the African desert. Apparently, Jonna let the ‘voices’ get to her head…or maybe because…oh never mind I won’t say it. Chet said it better anyways.

So now that there’s only 3 teams left, they head back to their swanky new apartment, with a bunch of free new Under Armour gear. I swear I would do these challenges for the sole purpose of getting free Under Armour. The next morning is the final race…teams get ready for the hardest thing they’ll ever do in their lives.

I don’t know how this seasons final race is going to top last season’s challenge in freezing Iceland!! I don’t think it can get much worse than having to sleep over night in the middle of the arctic…in a tent. But we’ll have to wait and see.

The teams will start off in the air…Devyn is super excited because she thinks she’s going to fly her way to the finish line. (For your sake Devyn…we hope that’s true). I know TJ was exaggerating the difficulty of this challenge, he says that every season, I have a feeling it will be extremely difficult, but it won’t be as bad as we think. But I’ve been wrong…soo…tune in next week for the finale!

xoo

 

Battle of the Seasons: Final 4!

Welp, I think we can officially declare Team San Diego as winners of The Challenge Battle of the Seasons. Not because they’ve won the final challenge, but because they’re 1 of 2 4-player teams left, and since they’ve controlled the game since day 1…it looks like they’ll go home with the biggest pay check.

Team Brooklyn is still proving why they’re in the final 4 with all 4 of their teammates. This week’s challenge basically ‘bumper ‘cars’ without the cars. Teams had to wear a big tube around them and try to knock the other teams off the big square grid. The first heat was the girls- Team Brooklyn came in first place as they battled with Marie who was runnin’ the show all on her own! Obviously, teams with only 1 male/female were likely to get thrown out first, but if your Team Brooklyn and can’t stand on two legs- then you’re out as well.

The Challenge1

The second heat was for the guys, for some reason JD and Chet couldn’t stand up with the tube around them, they fell down twice in the grid which forced them a DQ. Really sucked for them since the girls did so well, and Team Brooklyn really needed to win power team in this one. Team Vegas came in last place which was a straight ride into the elimination round. San Diego came in first winning power team, and leaving them to decide whose going into the elim. with Vegas.

It’s obvious that their time in Turkey is coming to an end with only a few teams left. It’s around this time where people start going cray and doing things they normally wouldn’t do. Marie goes balls to the wall cray when she finds out her best friend Frank (Team San Diego) is contemplating sending St.Thomas in with Vegas. Zach and Sam don’t care for Marie since Marie pushed Sam into a flowerpot last episode. Zach doesn’t want to get rid of Jonna because…it’s Jonna. And for some reason which I don’t understand, they don’t vote in Team Brooklyn. Team Brooklyn is literally the only team that could legitimately stop San Diego from winning first place. They have a 4 player team…why wouldn’t you try and throw them in one last time? Granted they will probably come back…but still it’s a chance you should be willing to take!

Marie and Frank go at it in what is apparently Jemmye’s old ‘peace’ room, seems like Frank and Marie don’t really care too much about keeping the peace. Also, I feel like Frank’s tears aren’t real. Frank tells Marie not to take it personally, which it isn’t personal, but at the end of the day you’re still a good friend to Marie, why vote her in when you don’t even have to?

Marie gets even ‘cornier’ when the group decides to go clubbing. Finally some fun! They continue their argument at the club…and then a few minutes later, on the bus ride home, the fighting continues. Marie calls Sam a few names I couldn’t piece together, she declares her and Frank are no longer friends and Robb has no choice but to get involved.

TheChallenge2

Back at the house, the fight is still going, except Marie forgets about Frank and starts pickin’ on JD! Poor little dolphin trainer JD, is just sitting in his cozy hoodie when Marie starts attacking him about his occupation! Then, things get even worse, because really who wants to make Derek angry? (love him) Marie and Derek go at it, until Robb steps in by ripping his shirt off and showing his incredible manly chest. It doesn’t do much because Derek is a firecracker and not backing down. In all honesty, I think Marie was right to be mad at Frank…but she should’ve kept it a teensy bit classier. I think this game really puts your friendships on the chopping block, and whoever were your friends coming into the game, are not necessarily your friends when you leave the game.

TheChallenge3

Anyways, San Diego puts St.Thomas into the elimination with Vegas. It seemed like a close game, but in the end Team Vegas ended up winning. Really though, St.Thomas should be proud of themselves for sticking around this long, even though they were protected by San Diego, they still held their own.

Next week, with the final 4 teams, they get a surprise from TJ that has them packing their bags, because they’re off to Namibia for the final leg of the challenge. I love that they had to pull out a map to see if it was in Africa.

Battle of the Seasons is coming to an end, but what do we think about the next season of The Challenge? I think it’s going to be a Rookie VS Veteran game, bring back Bananas and Kenny!!
