I loved it when Fessy got stolen again, serves him right and I hope he has to stay w her and she out does him in the final. Would love to see him gas out again and his "weak " partner do better than him. With CT being rogue he should be safe this next week so Kyle has to win. Would be great if he did and got Leroy vs Fessy with Fessy going home. That would still leave four teams and they generally do the final with three, so a double the week after or still two more weeks before the final? It's funny how poorly timed my rooting-for-Big T post was, but it did seem like she came out pretty happy with what she accomplished. She was the most entertaining and least personally awful person on the show. The Big T and CT show was awesome, even if CT turned heel for part of it. I'm not gonna lie, I was thinking that episode was going to come down to Fessy and CT in elimination, since they'd spent some time hyping the "young buck vs old alpha" sort of dynamic between them. It would have been a great match. I also think it'll be three in the final, so they have to get rid of two guys and one girl before that. I'd expect a guy's elimination and then a double elimination. CT was crowing like he was in the final because he was rogue, but I don't think he's safe yet. The least physically imposing guys are Kyle and Cory, I think, but Cory is protected by being Kam's partner -- I don't see Fessy+Amber B or Kyle+Nany winning an elimination, but Nothing Is as It Seems in the Challenge, as TJ likes to remind us. 10 hours ago, briantw said: I started watching an older season of the show that I've never seen before, Fresh Meat. It's teams of two and the elimination round basically has the teams going on a hike, but the twist is they have to carry weight in bags equal to the weight of the luggage they brought with them on the trip. So far, I'm like five eliminations in and Wes and his partner have been in every one and won them all. Everyone always hated Wes apparently. I went and looked up this season because in my mind, "Fresh Meat" was like 6-8 years ago, but wow it was like 15. Some Challenge franchise vets started there, like Kenny and Evan (exiled and in disgrace) and Ev and Diem. I never knew Wes was on the Real World. He'd always just been that sneaky guy who thinks he's cleverer than he is on the Challenge. I guess his RW season was in those years when I wasn't paying much attention to MTV, and I didn't have a DVR yet so I'd have to watch that kind of shit live, or in reruns (which MTV was pretty good about back then). 10 hours ago, dbunting said: I finished Rivals 3(?) recently and damn...I mean I understand why the person did what they did but damn. I will say one thing, no other reality show has as rough of a final challenge as this show does. Others may be harder over all (Alone) but this show kills them for the final challenge. Was that Bananas and Sarah? Yeah. Brutal. You can tell real life damage was done there. Spoiler Also I thought Bananas saying he owed Sarah some revenge because she voted him into an elimination was some bullshit. It's the same kind of shit he would have done to someone else if he was in that spot. The whole show, and especially the Final, became much more serious from an athletic and endurance standpoint, what, seven or eight years ago? Probably about the time Big E washed out. I see they are running promos for this "All Stars" season coming up and Big E is back, but since I don't plan to subscribe to Discovery+ I'm not sure how much I'll be able to keep up.
