    I think the teams will face off with losing team being eliminated and the final four will be left to fight it out individually to determine the champion.

    Why didn’t Amanda just pick nany, annoys me how she was just able to skate to a final because of Kaycee

    he made the right choice picking Devin because I’m sure, like most of us, he assumed they’d be doing the same game as the girls

    but the more you think about it I don’t think they would have made him do 2 physical eliminations in a row in 1 night

    Good season towards the end. Once Josh left.

    Kaycee finally got her title. CT making a great case as the goat.

    Finals format sucked. Kaycee goes from being on the worst team in the finals to getting her pick of running partners for the last leg? The only leg that actually mattered?

    CT vs Johnny is tough. These last two seasons have just been crazy easy for CT. Obviously you have to give him credit for convincing everyone not to challenge him but man it’s been easy. I think the last time someone took a shot was Jay who beat him in the rope tangle game.

    i think after kaycee got hurt last season they had to dial back the finals. Would be surprised if we ever really get a tough one again.

    It’s not even close. Bananas is questionable to even be top 3. He’s behind CT, Jordan, and Landon easily to me.

    Jay didn’t take that shot. CT volunteered himself to go in because he had to to get a skull, just like he did when he went against Josh in Double Agents. CT now has five titles and would have had a sixth in Gauntlet 3 if it wasn’t for Big Easy dying and possibly a seventh if it wasn’t for the stupid caribeaner in The Duel after beasting Brad (not sure if he beats Wes in the final due to the soccer advantage). Not to mention Adam throwing the last elimination in Rivals. He also very rarely had an alliance shield like Bananas had with Evan and Kenny in his early titles.

    I think CT is number 1. He’s beaten his peers consistently in multiple eras of the Challenge.

    That said, if he comes back next season all the other competitors should target him every time. Problem is none of them want to be the one to risk their game to face him. Bananas never had that intimidation factor. No one is flipping all the cards in a draw to force a matchup against CT like Jordan did to take on Bananas.

    CT's last two wins have been against pretty pathetic casts, replace him with Bananas and Bananas is the favorite in both those seasons. But CT is clearly a more physically dominant player than Bananas. Bananas understands the game better. In our stupid world it is kind of a Lebron vs. MJ debate.

    I think CT politically is just as good as Bananas now — definitely does a much better job connecting with the younger players than Bananas did. It’s a Challenge version of SkyNet becoming self-aware.

    Enjoyed last few episodes. Of course CT won. Kyle is damn good in a finals format (running, endurance). Amazing how the last several people to get eliminated in the lair did so by picking the wrong opponent. I think Emmanuel could have beaten CT. Or a healthy Logan. Those guys were really well rounded

    Glad we’re done with the narrative that Alton is top three all time. His recent appearances have tarnished a once bright career.

    Bananas said he would be returning to the Challenge soon. He said he would not be doing All-Stars because wins on that season don’t count and he wants to try to get another win to create a larger gap between him and CT.

    Bananas is by far the goat. People are scared to go against CT. Bananas is beatable by majority of the cast but some how has still won 7 times. Plus he makes for better TV.

    this is a pretty good 18 of people who have won recent seasons. Fill in the rest with players like Paulie, Tori, maybe a few older winners. Obviously some of these players are banned / not coming back

    Low key CT is crazy too though. Some of the fights he got into early….I think he can just as easy flip a switch and go to just as dark or place as Turbo.

    CT is the GOAT. Idk how that's even really debatable. If he hadn't been a lunatic when he was younger and gotten into fights every season, he'd already have more championships than bananas. Anyone who's watched the challenge knows CT is the biggest threat every year he's on it.

    Real question is- who is the female GOAT? Cara, Laurel, Evelyn, or Emily Schromm?

    I don’t know if I will do a good job explaining it, but it feels like Bananas developed a 5 year plan and basically was like if I do really well on these shows, I can make a career out of it.

    He trained way harder for them, took them much more seriously than others, etc and basically saw it as a way to make a living. He was an afterthought when Kenny/Evan were on shows. I’m too lazy to look up the casts when he went on a run, but no one thinks he is the Alpha CT is, no matter what the numbers say. He tried really hard to be good at the Challenge, and it worked.

    When other guys put in the same work to prepare for it (Jordan, CT losing the dad bod, etc) Bananas is just another guy while CT is THE guy. Best on best, bananas is the backpack.

    He went crazy against people a foot smaller than him. When Kenny beat him in the wrestling, he didn’t do anything. The only people he swung at were Davis and Adam multiple times.

    He definitely beat Kenny at wrestling and had to be physically taken off the guy because he wouldn’t release a chokehold on him. Pretty sure it was the same episode he clocked Davis in.

    Doing a smaller cast but where every single player was "somebody" would be awesome. A lot of seasons are boring for 4-5 weeks as they just throw in the no name rookies or young vets nobody cares about. Just skip that and get straight to it

    Have to think they'll really stack the cast or do something special for the 40th season. Next one will be season 38 so almost there.
