    I try to avoid this thread during the season, because I am always behind and don't want to spoil anything. Great season - glad Fessy got what was coming to him.

    CT is the GOAT in my opinion. Fessy was making his argument against the wrong person - Bananas actually won most of his seasons against basically zero competition. CT is winning against stacked competition in loaded seasons. His all around game is just so much better than Bananas.

    Based on Fessy's performance, I struggle to see him ever winning a final. Based on the edits, production doesnt like him either. They will never give him a final where he doesn't have to eat disgusting shit.

    This final was also built for Amber B - all she had to do was shut up and run. There is no shot Nany or Kam were beating her in any kind of endurance activity and it showed.

    I dont care what Fessy says - even if Kaycee was 100% healthy, he wasnt eating or drinking that shit.

    No chance. Fessy is mentally weak.

    Props to TJ/Production for getting Fessy to get up and eat, then waited until they were almost finished to call it.

    Has Kaycee come out and said yet what her injury was, curious on the severity.

    CT carrying bananas in that elimination should be the thing that puts him over the edge as GOAT

    He has a lot of pure dominance in certain daily’s/eliminations that Bananas can’t match.

    No idea what season or episode but there was one where teams had to eat milk and cookies then spin around on some apparatus and if you puked, you were done. I remember he ate like all of his teams cookies and drank all the milk and wanted more. Just totally shitting on everyone that would barf after a half of cookie or a drink of milk. He gets on another level at times that no one can match.

    This format kind of screwed them over too. They had to restart with only a 5 minute head start twice.

    CT is better competitor but Bananas has been so much better that social aspects of the game. Him winning as much as he has despite never being the top athlete on any season, is pretty impressive. Pretty hard to argue against either at this point

    I’m a noted Jordan stan and he doesn’t have the longevity of the other two, but him winning 3 of 5 shows or whatever it was stacks up against anyone at their peak.

    What he did to Zach with the sledgehammer with 1 f’ing hand should be illegal.

    Corey screaming about how he won and he 'did it' finishing like an hour behind CT was quite a millennial move.

    Also punking on Fessy when he ran back to him all season despite what he did to Nelson. Like guy, you will be groveling at Fessy's feet first episode next season.

    One thing for sure. Turning the challenge into the Super Bowl of reality competition shows and making into more of a sport has made the show MTV’s lone light shining in the vast darkness that is their programming lineup.

    CT is hands down the goat. Not even sure how that's debatable at this point. He's better than bananas physically, mentally, arguably politically at this point, and the longevity is absolutely insane. I think people forget how long CT has been doing this. He was around several seasons before bananas, before Wes, before half the cast of the new "All-stars", and he's still out here winning the whole thing on the big show. Also, we all know he'd have more 'ships than bananas if he didn't spend a few of his prime years getting the boot for fighting.

    Even with that he was screwed out of a fifth in Gauntlet 3, a potential sixth in The Duel due to the janky DQ against Brad (though maybe he still loses to Wes due to the soccer advantage in the beginning), was painfully close to winning Exes with Diem and would have won Rivals had Adam not fucked up/thrown that last elimination. But yeah, he just dominated a cast of much younger players with a partner no one wanted. And with the exception of possibly Nany (assuming Kaycee doesn’t get hurt) he wins no matter which female finalist he is paired with.

    Really impressed by CT to still be able to keep up and outpace the other guys. Obviously impressed by Amber. Although she isn’t physically imposing like Emily, laurel, or Jenny.

    huge redemption for CT bailing on big T.

    Most impressed by Cory, who seemingly willed Kam up past Nany. Not easy making up that extra time.

    seems like CT giving the extra food to Cory and Kam sealed the deal

    hard disagree. Also, that millennial comment? :meh:

    you do that entire challenge for weeks, then a 2 day grueling final? And you get 50k? I would tell about second place too.

    as CT said, that’s more than he got when he first won.

    Nah, it still wouldn't have been very close. According to the article petere1588 posted, CT and Amber were roughly an hour ahead at one point. CT and Amber weren't in the same frame with Kam and Cory at any time in the race besides when they were all in the cave. It would have been a trouncing even without that.

    It was pretty telling they never showed an overhead shot showing the position of everyone in one shot.


    But I was talking about putting Cory and Kam in third place for the restart.

    also, we have no idea how long it took them to eat the extra food. For all we know they were right behind them eating wise at the time. But I agree that Amber and CT’s pace was not something Kam could handle.

    No more than a half hour I’d guess on the dessert, probably far less. I can’t imagine they were given more than an hour to complete that challenge since almost all checkpoints have a time limit.

    Yeah, CT and Amber were either off trail for a short amount of time and the edit had to make it look longer or they were so far ahead it didn't affect the race.
    Really warming up to Cory over the last couple challenges.

    Even when he was younger, I never found him as annoying as nelson and hunter. Those two always pulled the drunk, fake macho shit where they'd try to fight for no reason at all. Corey's worst fault was that he attached himself to those two and he's just kind of dumb in general. Outside of that, he just hooked up a lot, which is fairly normal for a 23-year-old dude surrounded by hot chicks all day.

    For the GOAT debate...

    Re-watching Free Agents right now and Bananas just beat CT in a puzzle elimination to be the last person allowed into the final...

    They’ve had some great battles over the years. It’s damn close but I’ve still got Bananas for now.

    (By the way, this is/has been by far the best ‘guilty pleasure’ show on tv)

    If you think about it the final ended up perfectly for us that were team big brother sucks

    they had the numbers and had people like kam/Leeroy voting their way all season vs people like Kyle and CT with their plan running an all big brother final.

    In the end they ditched their partners to form a big brother “super team” of kaycee and fessy who arrogantly thought they were a lock to now win

    Kaycee blows out her knee
    Fessy pouts like a baby and refuses to eat
    They get DQ’d night 1
    Maybe the WOAT final performance

    CT and Amber the two players nobody wanted to be teamed with win the money

    just a phenomenal ending

    And bananas and CT both have survived way late into seasons the last 5 or so seasons just coasting on their reputations

    bananas is more of the master manipulator that gets people to vote his way whereas CT just puts fear into people wanting to go against him

    Just 2 different ways of running the social game on these seasons

    sadly I’m not sure we ever see them go against each other again unless it’s in the all stars or this new SR tour-like show
