    Cory I think made sense bc him and Nelson are kinda playing their own game. Take out Cory, take out Nelson and from there make your move on CT.

    CT would 100% have joined the emerald.

    Corey is definitely the new Leroy.

    Every female on Emerald should be voting CT in so that he joins their team after he wins.

    This whole season seems like a backfire, allowing mixed teams to be sent into elimination was terrible and the team concept hasn't been any better

    The show isn't fun when shitty players are able to form a dominant alliance. Emerald probably has the 3 worst male players. It reminds me of the Lavender Ladies shit show of a season

    Was on full display when Josh comes on screen and just says he is going to side with Logan. "He's a Number for me"

    Just dilutes the game. They need the gold skull permanently. And if team format, more pre-determined for fairness.

    Cutthroat was a great season. They should have done that from the start with a schoolyard pick.

    Give me a season that is 100% merit based. Set up the challenges so they are able to be rated as individual players.

    Bottom two players go to elimination each week.

    Get to a final five for men and final five for women. Run the final.

    1st $350,000
    2nd $100,000
    3rd $50,000

    It's really amazing to watch them pick over and over again and go to shitty teams. Go to emerald, fucking morons.

    Was really hoping Corey would win just so he could throw challenges and ask to be sent down & pick off Devin & Josh one by one. :laugh: would have been great TV

    There's a lot of dead weight on that team (Devin, Josh, Nany) and having the larger team has been a detriment in the final in past seasons. If I'm Kaycee, Tori or one of the remaining guys, I'd be looking to get onto the Sapphire team.

    Twitter seems to be saying Ashley got the boot for getting in an argument with Josh and outing him for being gay.

    Some website said it was something along the lines of “we all know you’re gay” but no slurs or anything. Hopefully more context gets out

    Speaking of Josh, I was really hoping for Devin or him to re-hash “what’s 8 times 9” when they were doing the math quiz at the beginning

    Supposedly he got a blow job in the bathroom but the cast refused to say who it was from (but had no issue calling out Bettina and Fessy). Rumor was because it was from another male cast member and the Esther storyline was just cover.

    Haven’t watched the last 2 episodes yet. This season just doesn’t seem to appeal to me as much..the format/so many rookies/throwaway episodes just don’t do it for me.

    Business is picking up...but yeah...first half of the season was a slog. Hopefully that pays off in the future with more "known" people since there were so many rookies this year, but I'm afraid too many of these folks are too close to each other outside of the game now

    All Stars -

    I dont remember a lot of these people.

    Jasmine looks so different. Way more chilled.

    Brad looks absolutely ridiculous. He must went through one hell of a mid life crisis.

    Just like last year - the music is great.

    Devin hit the nail on the head about Amanda

    she talks like she is a bad ass and someone to be feared but she is good at nothing. She is pulling a jemmeye and just skating by because she is a “vet” not because anybody is scared of her

    that whole scare tactic that all those girls on emerald should be terrified and “nobody is safe” only to pick big T like everyone predicted was :facepalm:

    Devin is right about Amanda in general, but it's bullshit to suggest Amanda should do anything other than what's best for her game

    Josh has seemed entirely too competent this season. I missed the goof and that was a classic josh unforced error.

    Im gonna give Amanda her flowers. There’s a reason she’s on this show despite not being good at anything. At least she’ll get in people’s faces and try to be interesting. I respect that.

    Im happy emerald got broken up. They should have it much harder from here out not just because Amanda is an albatross but because they complimented each well for a team without great guys and only one truly elite player (Kaycee)

    Was entertained by Emerald and Sapphire attempts to keep all the shitty players on one team this ep. Tori could honestly be what ruby needs.

    Agreed on Amanda. Back in the day there were always a half dozen batshit crazy people a season...CT included. Those are few and far between these days, but she isn't afraid to still show that she has that gene in her. For entertainment purposes, I like her on the show.

    Amanda is an agent of chaos. We need more of that. She’s also above-average in puzzles, though shitty at everything else. And she’s low-key hot IMO.

    The format is this seasons biggest problem. Everything about it sucks. They need to bring back the gold skull format. Guys vs guys. Girls vs girls. No combined teams, every man for themself. Mixed teams has never worked.

    I’ve been listening to the bananas podcast, he agrees this season is awful. The format, the challenges, the cast, everything. Basically said he would not be watching if he didn’t have to do the podcast.

    Watched the first episode of Challenge All-Stars Season 2....

    *Wasn't ready to see Jasmine look like an out of shape Mom. Last time I saw her was like 15 years ago and she was a spitfire 100lb spinner.

    *Brad looks ridiculous with half his head shaved and big tattoos on his scalp.

    *Cohutta looks like he's in a militia

    *There are as many hot chicks on this as a regular season. They used to cast a ton of really hot chicks and a lot have aged well.

    *They showed a clip from Inferno season in 2004....CT was sitting in the stands drinking liquor while heckling an elimination. It's funny just how drunk they used to get these people to create drama.

    I'm not sure I agree. I think it's more MTV doesn't want the fighting and stuff that comes from it. Weren't there rumors this season that people were getting so drunk/causing issues in the house that MTV dialed back how much they were allowed to drink on the bar nights? A good amount of these people still want to get after it.

    find it odd how MTV is still holding on to people that were 21 in 2005 on multiple shows . when you get regulars on the Challenge that are like 35 they are going to drag through it like a job vs an experience

    I just don't know why they would want to dial that back, the drama is why people watch. Hell if you are boring they don't recast you.

    They let them get obliterated on Floribama another mtv show.
