Final Reckoning: Redemption House of Cards

*ch ch* REDEMPTION HOUSE. This week is all about the Redemption House and the Apocalypse that actually sends people home for once! CT tries his best to stay in the game, but maybe not as hard as Derrick tries. At this stage in the game, I guess you have to give it your best shot to stay in. They’re battling for a million bucks after all. *ch ch* MAIN HOUSE. No real elimination from the main house so it’s a bit laid back, but we end the episode with an eating challenge which is our favorite. Lots of puking and lots of fun! We go way off topic this week, which once guy on iTunes hates. So it goes.

Final Reckoning: Bro-ing Pains

It’s guy’s night, so grab your whiskey and cowboy hat and leave the women at home. We’re super efficient as we recap this episode but still cover a lot of ground. A nomination, a desperate Banana, a crazy elimination and a dramatic re-enactment of Paulie’s tweets that will hopefully make you hate him more than you already do. Also, how about a little back story on that Semester at Sea sweatshirt this episode? C’mon MTV, you can do better.

Final Reckoning: Shaneless

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?

Final Reckoning: Big Little Lies

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.

Final Reckoning: A Series of Unfortunate Events

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.

Final Reckoning: Breaking Brad

Poor Brad deals with the bad news from the Redemption House, while the rest of the Challengers prepare for a Purge Challenge. We get relationship drama we don’t care about, team drama we’re too old for, and reminisce of the days when we used to get a challenge and an elimination in one week.

Final Reckoning: The Affair

It’s a shorter episode tonight due to an oncoming illness, but at least we have NyQuil is if beer isn’t on the menu. Of course we cover Paulie and the silly fight, Brad’s reaction to potential infidelity, and the process to get back into the house after you’re in Redemption. Four episodes in and we’re still learning how the game works and very few have been sent home. Brace yourselves for a long season everyone. We’re just getting warmed up.

Final Reckoning: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

We’re here with another recap.  Lots of house drama as Cara and Kyle suck Faith and Paulie into their relationship drama, Cara then pisses off her partner, and find out how nominations and eliminations are going to work this season.  All this and more.

Final Reckoning: Six Feet Under

Hey, it’s the first episode of a new season! We’re excited to see old favorites and dreading meeting new idiots. As usual, we cover the challenge, the elimination, and the drama. We disagree on Cara’s promiscuity but we’re all on board for the resolution to the fight we always seem to get initially. TJ is playing this game dirty and we learn a bit more about how dirty it’s gonna get.

Final Reckoning Preview

Buckle up, kids. The third part of The Challenge trilogy starts July 10. To prepare, your favorite Challenge podcast goes over the new cast, pairs, talks about theories on potential formats. We steer clear of spoilers except for casting spoilers, so avoid this one if you really don’t want to know who is on the show or the partners/teams they are on.

Champs vs Stars: Bank Rollin’ in the Deep

Well, we made it. Another season finale. Who puts on frozen clothes the fastest? Who eats the most gross food? Do the dad bods stand a chance against professional athletes? All these questions and more are answered. Also our interview with Laurel seems to have made waves in the Twitterverse. But hey, those comments were taken out of context.

Interview: Darrell

Fan-favorite and one of the best players to play the game, Darrell is in the house! We ask the standard questions, but we also had to squeeze in some questions about Sarah Greyson, the Gauntlet Queen and one of my favorite players. Darrell was a super charming and personable guy, and we bought him hot dogs. We’re basically best friends now. This wraps up our interviews from the Challenge Throwdown for the Cause event in Yorkville. Thanks for listening!

Interview: Melinda

Melinda asked us to get a little weird with it, and we did. I think we made her a little uncomfortable, but that’s ok because she did the same to us. Or at least she tried. We haven’t seen Melinda on the show for quite some time, but we were still excited to meet her in person. We had a separate conversation before our interview that I wish we would’ve recorded but alas, this is all you get of the beautiful Melinda.

Champs Vs. Stars: When Loyalty Is Spot On

This week we find out which team Booby is sending into the Elimination.  Also a Champ has a tirade and accuses another team of cheating.  After that we find a twist that lowers the competition to just 4 teams.

Interview: Jordan Wiseley

Thanks to Jordan for taking time out of his evening during the Challenge Throwdown event to talk to us about horror movies, his production company, his motorcycles and more. Unfortunately Tori D. wasn’t able to join him on this trip, or we could’ve helped figure out if that relationship has staying power. During the interview we definitely sort out why he and Laurel didn’t work out. We’re a podcast, but we’re also relationship counselors apparently. Some people insist their partners fold instead of crinkle.

Interview: Tori Hall and Ashley Kelsey

More interviews from the Challenge Throwdown for the Cause event in Yorkville! This time we sat down with Tori Hall and Ashley Kelsey. Ashley was the captain for Hillary’s volleyball team, so you could say we’re all basically best friends now. We ask a little about the Challenge, but also play a fun game of “would you rather?” and learn more about the Challengers in life after The Challenge.

Interview: Laurel Stucky

Thanks to Laurel for sitting down with us in Yorkville Illinois to answer some questions about The Challenge, but more importantly the shows she watches on Netflix. Forensic Files for life. We also touch on her episode of Fear Factor and her one elimination loss against the terrible Camila.

Interview: Cohutta

We were lucky enough to sit down and chat with Cohutta at the Challenge Throwdown for the Cause event in Yorkville, Illinois. We talked about many topics, from toilet paper to cell phones to careers and his cousin Jill. He also shares some of that deep southern wisdom and charm with us.

Champs vs Stars: Rainbows and Storm Clouds

It’s a very special episode of Challenged with Hill’s first time hosting and a special appearance by a 5-year-old fighting bedtime. We may be distracted, but I think we do a stellar job of covering the Champs and Stars divisions and the game-within-a-game of this season. Who can trust these crazy Champs with all their shenanigans?

Champs Vs. Stars: Over The Edge And Under The Bus

It’s time for some life sized Shuffle Board!  We get to see the fall out of Kaihla cursing, Hennisey predictably goes a little crazy, and the Stars seem to be forming a plan to take over the game.  Lots of fun stuff this episode.
