    This season is going to have incredible viewership numbers with everyone home and looking for good content. Hope it’s a good one.

    If you don’t already know about it, check out the Pluto TV app. It has a channel devoted completely to the Challenge and is showing seasons 23-30 (Battle of the Seasons, Rivals II, Free Agents, Exes II, Bloodlines, Rivals III, Invasion of the Champions and Dirty XXX) on loop. Pretty outstanding background viewing while working at home.

    Asaf getting with Nanny already. Dude was hookin up with a bunch of chicks early in his season of AYTO.

    His hookup chart has to be insane now especially after the Nanny hookup, someone who has been with 50% of the Challenge lol

    The Elimination win requirement is a perfect stipulation, and Jordan’s absolute wet dream.

    As we have all said, guy is a complete asshole, but he has always welcomed competition.

    Was not expecting that elimination result until they said Jay was a climber. It was a wrap at that point. ASAF was doing like a static bicep curl during the first round, that was just dumb.

    Curious to see how things shake out. Feels like there are the vets for the guys (CT, Bananas, Jordan, Wes, etc) then a bunch of new guys, with not much in between. Surprised Cory got in the tribunal, he typically doesn’t do as well in these shows as one would expect. To get that kind of respect at the jump was interesting.

    Tori and Jenny look to be the lead girls, don’t really see any of the rookies challenging them. Setting up for an entertaining season.

    Seriously. Wife and I said the same thing. “If you mess with my fiancé you mess with me.” Uh, both of you will prolly be gone within a few challenges anyway. No one cares.

    I hate that Wes and Bananas are teaming up. The best parts of the last few seasons has been Wes needling that dork.

    The vets trying to line up easy elimination opponents for themselves is going to be great.

    I just wish they would have played it out longer, would have been a great midseason bombshell

    This may be the weakest female cast ever. Dee is terrible but legitimately one of the top females this season. Outside of Jenny and Tori don't think there's one actual good competitor left

    yeah its not great but Ashley has obviously had some success and Jenna isn't Terrible. Mattie is stout. The rest are trash though.

    I missed it... is it 1 winner or 1 guy and 1 girl winner? I really hate when they mix the sexes, IMO there is no way of leveling the playing field in a physical challenge. The season where Cara won (I think?) is a good example.

    Was so nice to not have any Paulie/Cara BS.

    Was getting Theo vibes from Fessy when he talked about how he should be in the NFL. Fessy actually put up pretty good career stats (125 Receptions, 1204 Yards & 18 TDs). Unlike Theo who never even caught a pass or even played.

    she can't swim, scared of heights, almost passed out from jogging around the house. Her big prove everyone wrong moment last season was not coming in last in the swimming elimination. I guess she was able to finish the final last season but it's not hard when you spend the majority of it walking next to your teammates while they do all the heavy lifting.

    They called Ashley out for skating by, Jenna can run and that's about it.

    It's disappointing because I felt like they were finally getting females that were strong competitors and not just there solely for drama. A lot of dead weight for drama this season, already ready for that Bayleigh to go as well.

    Sorry, was referring to Theo Bradley from a Real World season. He claimed he was NFL bound until his cousin got him kicked out of school for weed in his dorm.

    she swam faster then atleast 2 other girls not to be eliminated. And she didn’t almost pass out just from running around the house. She was doing other exercises as well. Do you even watch bro?

    the fact that you think Wes is the dork of the two shows that they have a great equal rivalry

    Thank god they are going to force people to have to win an elimination to get into the final.

    I would assume that means you want to manipulate things so you can go against a weak opponent early, stamp your ticket and then cruise Brogan or CT style.

    Like Ashley on the women's side.

    I assume some of the vets get paid bonuses to be on the show for certain lengths of time, but if it’s not much or if that’s not the case, the play is too definitely go in early and just get it out of the way. If you lose, at least you don’t spend weeks in a bunker first.

    i read this earlier this week. Didn’t realize some guys made this much.. assuming it’s ct, bananas and Wes.

    According to Us Weekly, certain players can make around $80,000 for the season. Less popular veterans make around $3,000 to $5,000 per week that they survive on the show and rookies can make about $1,000 a week.
