Vendettas: When Worlds Collide

It’s a super-ultra long episode of Challenged to accompany the premiere of Vendettas. We love seeing midlife crisis Brad, as well as the new Challengers from other random shows in the US and UK. We have
to intro a bunch of newbies to this insane game and see how the vets fit into the equation.

CvS: Flagpoles and False Hopes

The Champs are heading for a shutout clean sweep, but can the Stars stop them? Are alliances strong enough to withstand a vote that may not go as intended? This episode is all about strength. Who is the strongest player, but more importantly, the strongest team?

Throwdown for the Cause: Yorkville

Challenged was fortunate enough to meet all the Challengers in Yorkville at the first event for Throwdown for the Cause. In this episode we talk about the event and our experiences in meeting Bananas, Cara Maria, Brad, Kelly Anne, Britni, Derrick, Zach, Jenna and Kyle. The Throwdown tour is coming to a town near you, so we definitely recommend going.

CvS: Playing Me for the Foos

ZACH ATTACK IS BACK. We have a special guest host standing up for Bananas during the conflict with Bananas vs. Wes. The group plays human foosball and of course can’t do anything without major conflicts.

Interview: Kelly Anne and Britni

We attended the Throwdown for the Cause in Yorkville, Illinois and had the fortune of meeting many Challengers. Unfortunately we had little luck in getting interviews, but Kelly Anne and Britni were nice enough to spend a little time chatting with us. Thank you to Kelly Anne and Britni! We did meet some other Challengers and put a bug in their ears for interviews, so we’ll follow up and try to get more interviews later.

CvS: When Push Comes to Shoving Stars

Hashtag BringHillaryBack2017 worked, and Hillary joins us. We get a new Challenger entering the game to replace the many who had to leave. An alliance breaks out on the Stars team, but do they have the numbers to change the game? Will the Stars finally break their losing streak? And will Riff Raff regain his memory?

Challenged: Did CT Say It

In this special bonus episode of Challenged Bryan plays a game show with his other co-hosts called DID CT SAY IT?  He reads off 15 quotes in his best CT voice and the others have to say if it’s a quote from CT or did another Challenge member say it.  Lots of fun was had.

CvS: Slamballs and Elbow Brawls

The contestants are dropping like flies and it seems like everyone wants to go into elimination. Drama drama everywhere on the stars team, including a bodyguard who can’t tell if an injury is an accident or not.

XXX: One in a Million

It’s been a long season, but we made it. Finally. Well, sorta. We’re not going to know who wins until next week, but that doesn’t stop us from speculating this time around. Also, meet us (and some Challenge people) in Yorkville, IL next month.

XXX: The Sinister Six

We finally get all the challengers eliminated down to the final 6.  Does #TeamHunny have a representative in the final?  Also we switch locations, an injury could take a finalist out of the race, and we place some sticks and stones.  Mainly just stones.

XXX: A Million More Reasons

The big twist is finally revealed. We see a Redemption Challenge which is supposed to be the last, but c’mon, you can’t fool us. We get to see our first couple finalists, and we fall out of love with one of our favorite challengers while falling in love with some of the rookies.

XXX: Pretty Little Backstabbers

It’s crybaby episode part two, but things are heating up and people are quickly heading to the Redemption House. The Challenge may have been lackluster, but the elimination was intense and crazy. We’re winding down this season and are excited to see how these alliances have shaken up.

XXX: Feel the Burn

It’s a crybaby episode! A burn vote turns out to change the game forever. The dumb Redemption House is still in play, so once again no one was sent home. Despite these issues, this is maybe still one of the best episodes we’ve seen so far.

XXX: Boxed In

I guess we’re #teamHunny now. Veronica earns her stripes this episode, as if she hasn’t done enough in the last 20 seasons of the show. CT finally loses a Challenge, and unfortunately it’s one of the highest stake Challenges yet. Tony and Hunter start an unlikely alliance of the lone wolf and the low man on the totem pole. God speed, fellas. Another cliffhanger. Who is going to the Redemption House? Who is going straight into the Presidio? Find out next week.

XXX: Love is a Lonely Hunter

Another live episode. I hope we’re working out the bugs. Hunter is a crybaby who starts fights and gets dumped. I mean, seriously, is there a worse person than Hunter? Well, maybe Nelson who also starts fights. Another XXX episode that is high on drama and insanity, low on eliminations. Is the Redemption House still in play? I guess we’ll find out next week.

XXX: Rampage

Is Camila a racist? Uh…. yeah. Of course she is. But Leroy is a saint. It’s a special episode of Challenged this week as half the podcast is on vacation. Some technical difficulties this time around but hopefully they’re not too distracting. Oh, also, there was an elimination and Hunter sucks at things.

XXX: Dirty Little Secret

Tony and Camila are both dogs. We get the much-loved trivia challenge, but it falls flat with a lot of filler and answers with no questions. The crew prepares to meet some Challengers. Follow us on social media stuff. We’re not to proud to beg. Wanna see us cover 90’s House? Let us know.
