Darrell seems like a good dude. Those champ eliminations are all pretty epic.

Not sure how I feel about the cast v pro athlete season.

I'm surprised no one has posted yet. Good episode last night.

Go CT!!! Laughing at Nicole and Cory at the puzzle challenge.

It doesn't seem as if Cory has the heart for the physical challenges.

The puzzle stuff was pretty funny to see, even when the producers were trying to help them.

I really don't like any of the females left but Ashley was very strong and worthy of winning after part one.

Hope CT can make up the penalty.

The math puzzle. Holy shit that was bad.

I expect a lot of stupidity out of these people so I'm surprised that Ashley was able to realize that the number had to be divisible by 3.

As much as I haven't liked Ashley during the rest of the show, she's definitely shown a lot of strengths in the finals so far.

CT would have killed that climbing the rope obstacle that he failed during the final. He put on way too much weight.

I wouldnt say that. He got too frustrated when Camilla kept failing the same obstacle CT failed on, seems like he gave up when she kept falling.

Didn't she only fall once? It seemed like he got frustrated because he was hoping to clear that on the first go to gain ground after how bad he was at the puzzle but after falling once he knew it wasn't worth trying again. He also seemed a little weak/slow running/carrying that cart.

Cory is a dumbass who shouldn't go on this show because there are puzzles involved. He also has no endurance. Seriously, that was a special ed performance by him and Nicole (another short bus rider).

Looks like CT stopped lifting and just became a fat fuck.

Other than the puzzle, Corey's performance looked fine to me.

CT still looks like he lifts, but cut out the diet/cardio.

Didn't Corey gas out in a final a season or two ago. Could be thinking of someone else.





Doesn't look as bad in this one as the most recent episode. Probably dirty bulking while there.

Stumbled on these while searching the above

That was the most lame and weakest final they've ever had. What a disappointing season.

I liked the season and I liked CT winning but, yeah, this was a letdown as far as these finales go. Especially this third leg which was just basic kayaking and swimming. They're usually so good with their comps, wonder if they ran out of money or what.

Re: The Challenge: Invasion of the Champions (MTV) -- premieres 2/7/17

Yeah, I was surprised at how relatively easy this challenge was. TJ kept going on about how it was going to be the toughest in history, but it looked like the easiest by far.

Very happy with the winners.

I see that CT is going to be in the Champs vs. Pros starting next week. Looking forward to it.

Yeah, the final was really mediocre. Basic endurance and puzzles, but nothing particularly crazy like climbing mountains or staying up most of the night awake like in previous challenges.

Happy that CT won

Re: The Challenge: Invasion of the Champions (MTV) -- premieres 2/7/17

Agree with everyone else that that was one of the worst, "easiset" finals and the only individual leg didn't look like it offered much of a chance to make up any significant time but I was thrilled with the winners.

Love CT and, while I don't like how Ashley behaves, she was strong and steady during the entire final challenge and she didn't whine or blame others. Glad Nicole was last.

I still think Exes 1 was the hardest final I have seen. Any other final and CT would have won that one.

Re: The Challenge: Invasion of the Champions (MTV) -- premieres 2/7/17

Just finished this episode. I overall liked this season and them bringing back some champs that we haven't seen in awhile, but I do agree that the final was too easy. A lot of the puzzles were puzzles that I did in elementary class for school. Looking forward to Champs vs Pros. From the previews it looks like:
Spoiler:
Wes and Jordan are back and on the Champs team with CT, Darrell, and Bananas. I think Wes and Jordan are odd picks.... For the girls it's Ashley Kelsey, Ashley Mitchell, Camilia, Cara Mara, and Veronica is back at 40 years old. I think it's odd that Laurel isn't participating....

Re: The Challenge: Invasion of the Champions (MTV) -- premieres 2/7/17

I'll echo everyone else -- The final seemed easy and the whole thing was pretty anti-climatic. But overall, I thought it was a good season.

I'm happy that CT won but Nelson impressed me. Meanwhile, Corey turned out to be a whiny bitch.

I was very impressed with Ashley too. As horrible and crazy as she has come off at times she did really well this entire season and she crushed the final.

I really wish MTV would release unedited versions of these reunions on their website or something. Based on years of reading reports of what actually happened vs what they choose to air, most of the time the best most interesting stuff is left on the cutting room floor.

That being said, that is quite the outfit Camilla has on.

Camila is just awful. Pretty much all the others seem to have a sense of how awful they are for a small amout of money and fame, but Camila doesn't at all.

The only good part of the show was when CT asked them all to stop taking about finger-banging. I still want to believe this stuff is partly an act by these people by I don't think it is. I don't think I'll watch another reunion show. I only really root for CM and CT, so hopefully they quit soon and I won't watch these anymore.
