They weren’t lying about that double elimination, but before we get that, we get the normal Challenge and see a rivalry come to a head. Sorta. Kinda. Before security breaks it up, I mean. Cara is betrayed by someone she was close to, a Challenge legend gets called out by a newbie, and more in this action-packed episode of The Challenge. Support the show on Patreon, ya know, if you feel like it.
We recap our visit to Challenge Mania and went over our stories of meeting Challenge “celebrities”, but more importantly meeting other Challenge fans and listeners of Challenged. We rehash this episode including goodies like what a jerk Zach is, an old rivalry that comes to a head, and night full of drama. We’re all excited to finally get back to the standard format of challenge, drama, nominations and eliminations.
We’re so excited to be back and we’re ready for Season 33! We have our first challenge of the season, a purge, and the standard craziness that comes with the Challengers arriving at their new house. We don’t learn much about the format of this season yet, but at least we get the pairings and some potential hookups.
Look for us in Chicago this weekend for ChallengeMania! Say hello… OR ELSE.
It’s finally the final episode of the finale! We go over the reunion, take your phone calls, and talk about offense language. We also go on a self-congratulatory segment about our 100th episode that happened several weeks ago. Thanks everyone for your support for our show, we definitely appreciate it. We’re going on hiatus but we’ll see you for Season 33!
We’re winding down to the finale with the final 5 teams. We get a shocking last challenge with trivia and everything. That’s trivia twice in a season! The final elimination of the season is curdled milk and cookies. We finally see the final 4 on their way to the finale. Next week is our last episode of the season, don’t miss it!
Lots of switching between the Main House and Redemption House this week, and even with a Purge challenge and elimination we don’t see anyone go home. An elimination gets all the players frustrated, a nomination is hard to predict with the power vote and numbers that are close and could go either way. With just 2 episodes until the final, we hope to see them pick up the pace soon. Let’s send some people home and get to the final!
Our longest show in Challenged history! Big drama this episode with Bananas pushing things a little too far and Devin paying the consequences. Flat pasta leads to a confrontation you wouldn’t believe. It’s TJ’s favorite challenge… TRIVIA! And we spend far too long going over voicemails from all sorts of celebrity fans of Challenged.
In a house divided, which alliances will survive? Zach and Amanda especially are torn between different alliances and it really makes their game pretty difficult. Another team is being pulled in two directions to sway the game. We get mercenaries, broken noses, and a game-changing tie breaker. Lots of game drama and very little relationship drama. The podcast is torn on if that makes this episode better or worse. We also review some voicemails left to us from the cast.
Drama drama everywhere. This episode draws some lines in the sand between Challengers we like and Challengers we can barely tolerate. The eating challenge ends in a predictable way, and a pair end up in Redemption to make amends. That goes about as well as you’d expect it to go in a reality show fueled by booze and anger. Back in the main house, we see other fights, more drama and more people who we’ve decided to hate. No nominations, no voting and of course no eliminations this episode. C’mon MTV.
We interrupt this regular podcast feed for an episode of Couch Pilots! Wolfie and Tim join the flight as the regular pilots review Boise Brothers, a failed pilot put together by Challenge contestants Abram and Mike to hopefully sell MTV on a reality show. The pilot failed, obviously, but that doesn’t stop us from talking about it. For more details or to subscribe to Couch Pilots, head on over to their website, http://couchpilotspodcast.libsyn.com/.
Eight episodes in and I have a very important question: Will anyone ever be sent home? The mercenaries play for a spot in the house, but let’s be honest… they’re getting into the game either way because if they lose, it’s Redemption House time. We see Kyle slutting it up, drama at a winery, drama in a bus, drama at home, and a salad bowl with lasers shooting out of it. Shane has a strategy in the rugby game, but will it work and is it worth it?
Killer Queen Kam is the lady with the plan in this episode, but c’mon MTV, are you ever gonna send anyone home? We see the Challengers dig out of a mine, a relationship between Tori and Derrick comes to a head, and Brad finally blinks. All this and more on this wonderful edition of Challenged.
We’re not thrilled about the pace of this season, but we’ll keep bringing you the latest ’cause we love you. Too much drama up in here, too many relationships to follow, and too many people throwing hissy fits. But it’s ok. We see a challenge on a train, we see Brad throw fits, Cara throw fits, Kyle throw fits, Shane throw fits… Are we seeing a pattern. Also, some roosters invade the hen house. All this and more on this amazing episode of Challenged.
We’re winding down this season of Champs vs Stars and preparing for Final Reckoning. Wes shows what kind of mastermind he is and why he’s the greatest Challenge politician of all time. Louise and Casper face an uphill challenge to get to the final. Will they get there? I guess we’ll find out next week for the grande finale. Also they misspelled a word. C’mon MTV.
No girls allowed! It’s just the men of Challenged tonight, and you know what that means. A short show, no notes, no prep work and lots of distractions. We talk Tori, Ashley, Aneesa and the drama involved with all of them. Wes tries and fails to start an alliance. Tony Time embarasses us all. We end on a bunch of drama that leads nowhere and accomplishes nothing. A typical Challenge episode.
Technical problems continue to plague the show, but don’t worry. We find a way to deliver a full episode. Devin is still coming down from his nirvana experience, but has a rude awakening and major disappointment. Natalie continues to play everyone’s game except her own, being a pawn that delivers the goods to the last person who holds her attention. And a previous love affair brings about some emotions when the mercenaries show up to take contestants out. Try to ignore the talk about Brad’s hair oils.
The mercenaries come in to wreak havoc on our poor Challengers while Kam does her best Fire Marshall Bill impression. A new challenge proves very difficult for everyone, with broken glass and stitches and ambulance rides galore.
Our coverage of Champs vs. Stars has been demoted to a short aftershow in the wake of Vendettas. This week we cover the purge in the swimming challenge and at least some of the Challengers who are on their way to the final next week.
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.
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.
