    I told my wife production can't like the 2 most popular people facing off episode one. I was hoping the twist was that the people who voted for ct and ashley were the only ones eligible to face them.

    my b. I will spoiler.

    Regardless, I doubt the show would do that because it is pretty lame for people to get eliminated when they don't even get to participate in the elimination challenge.

    It is funny how right CT was in the voting room. "Why don't we all just slow down and see how the game is played first." Then the rest of the competitors voted in CT-Ashley and only got rid of one of them.

    Gauntlet 2 just went up on Netflix.

    While I understand why production removed alcohol from the house in future seasons, it really ramped up the brawling and drama. I miss it.

    Veronica is a low grade human. John from Real World LA may be the most out of place person in a challenge house ever.

    He and Julie being all god squad seems so out of place considering what the challenge is now.

    Last season, the whole house convinced themselves there wouldn’t be many red skulls and fought to throw themselves in, then there wound up being plenty.

    this year TJ tells them there are only 10, and nobody wants to go in?

    the groupthink really leads them to some dumb decisions.

    This is already one of my favorite seasons....cant believe Fessy didn't jump in when he saw that ring ...you HAD to know you'd be fighting for it

    My fucking wife called it out after seeing just the initial view....."Fessy has to go in on this"...that dude got to stare at it for who knows how long and still didn't want in. Kyle was right.

    Fessy just completely dropped the ball on this entire season. Dude would have cake walked to a final had he gone down there and earned his red skull but now he pissed off his alliance, is left with a terrible partner and not knowing if he will even get a chance to go in. So bad. Rogan was in a similar power position 2 seasons ago but played a flawless game. Fessy did the opposite

    No way they keep letting Fessy win challenges now. Very smart of Kyle to pick Kam, he knows she’s running the house. Awesome episode, this show keeps getting better and better.

    i really do think the changes they’ve made the last few seasons have really made it better. I love the skull system - too many seasons were made boring by the main alliance skating to the end.

    This thing where people can swap partners is awesome, because it blows up any alliance anybody can form. Some of the worst seasons have been when annoying people get control of the house and run it all year. This makes that virtually impossible, if people play it smart like Kyle just did.

    Have to watch it the night after typically with my wife because she's pregnant and she can't stay up till 9:30.

    Few thoughts:
    1. Fessy is such a dumb guy. There are literally 10 skulls...5 guys/5 girls. Dude HAS to take advantage of some scrub in a physical challenge. I would try to find a way to pinch him out the rest of the season so he won't be able to go in. These people say "scared game" 250 times an episode but don't seem to grasp not going into eliminations is the worst thing you can do.
    2. Nam and Lolo are my squad. No idea how good he is as a competitor but is in terrific shape and has an Olympian as his partner. There are a lot of challenges that aren't quantified by being athletic, but those two should be around for awhile.
    3. Love the format, love Kyle switching it up and getting with a strong girl. There are going to be lots of curve balls coming up
    4. A lot of my favorites aren't on this season, but the gameplay and skulls make it just as entertaining. Really looking forward to what happens.

    2 skulls already handed out, only 4 more to each gender. I mean just off the top of my head Nelson, Fessy, Cory, Devin, Wes, CT, LeRoy, Nam all don't have skulls and at most only 4 of those players can get them. There is going to be solid guys that don't even sniff the final.

    I am watching the episode tonight. Unsure if the thread title of "Fessy is soft" is related to something that happens in the episode. If so, maybe we shouldn't put those type of things in the thread title.

    If it is just banter from this thread, then I guess it is fine.

    I forgot to record episode 1 and then went to watch it on demand the next day through Youtube TV. Well, somehow, only the 2 minute discussion of Ashley going home was uploaded as the episode. Was not pleased.

    Agreed. Pretty lame.

    any who, thoughts from the season so far:


    No way Cory, Fessy, and Nelson can operate a functioning alliance.

    pretty unreal fessy chickened out there. I mean, it was a rookie. You should be able to beat him at anything.

    I loved Kyle stealing a strong female competitor and breaking up alliances.

    Josh saying “I rooted for you the whole time!” and Kyle saying “well thanks for that” was great.

    Nany is very dumb. Thinking Josh is an upgrade is just more proof.

    big t was a bit annoying this episode. Ya, her teammate sucked, but Big T is the smallest girl on the show. Come on now.

    people being scared when there are only 8 skulls is so weird.

    Josh continues to be the worst addition to the show no matter who the rookies are. I also enjoyed his comment to Fessy about “ruining my game” when Kyle stole Kam.

    And how is Nany still this bad at the challenge? Just an all around terrible competitor

    She wasn’t bad when she started. Gave Laurel a run in Free Agents. But yeah, her comeback has been disappointing. She missed her window and should re-retire.

    I saw something where she basically makes a yearly salary getting on the plane. I don’t know why they pay her that much and not just get anyone else for cheap.

    That's a good point. There really aren't that many people who are a draw, but there still has to be some familiarity. She can be part of the fat they cut, especially with the broad pool of people to draw from.

    I don’t understand MTVs logic in paying Nany a large appearance fee. Is there really a sizable group of people that won’t watch if she isn’t on the show?

    Didnt ask about garbage man. Depends on how many challenges you’ve been in. For example, this season he got around $100k for just being a part of cast.


    he didn’t care to learn how to swim until recently when he really started wanting to win. Took swimming lessons at UNLV before the season.


    good guy and good cut. Will likely go back. Willing to talk about everything challenge related, but didn’t want him to spoil anything for me. He did say that this is his last one though.
