Re: The Challenge: Champs vs. Pros (MTV) -- premieres 5/16/17

Had to laugh at the CT "dad bod" talk. Welcome to the club bro!

Also enjoyed how quickly the pros degenerated into Challenge attitudes, and for charity no less.

And looking at some season preview clips I can say based on my limited experiences of being around him over the years that if provoked CM Punk would hurt Bananas and hurt him badly.

I would gladly trade my "dad bod" for CT's any day.

They wrote names on the limes, when Louise drew the lime, she didn't show it to anyone, and said LoLo. She basically said it could've been anyone name on the lime, but she said LoLo since she wanted LoLo in (this wasn't said during the draw but rather when they taped her explaining the draw).

I didn't think anything of Jordan's comments except him basically hitting on Lolo but reference the way the Pros used limes to pick who's going in.

He was referencing their lime picking thing but it sounded like nonsense to me. He clearly wants to go balls deep in Lolo. They're both so super competitive I could see them relating and hooking up. He also probably got major wood when she was chirping at Johnny.

Veronica was in over her head. They should've brought her back for a regular season, she was clearly the weak link here and wasn't going to last. She used to be so damn hot back in the day.

Oh, and Victor Cruz is awful.

I think Veronica still looks good for 40. Man Lolo Jones is crazy! I think the casting for the Champs is fairly poor... Couldn't they have gotten Emily, Laurel, Sarah Rice, Paula, Zach, and Derrick? So many better choices than who they cast. No wonder they got beat badly in the first challenge....

I found this interesting article today that catches up with Wes, Ruthie, and Emily:

Nice to read a little about what some of these people actually do, including Wes.

Not a fan of that elimination, was hoping for something a little more epic for Wes and Bananas.

I hate Bananas so much but the show is almost always better with him and most of these people are so vile while pretending to be pure, I almost respect now that Bananas just says openly he's a jackass and will do anything for money and attention. I'm sure he got a hefty appearance fee so only his ego was damaged.

He's a massive douche for sure, but Johnny is always entertaining and is basically a professional shit stirrer. He's great for the show and his super competitiveness is fun to watch (you hate him but you sort of root for him nonetheless for the aforementioned reasons). Also you see how quickly he works his charm and people skills as he already had Lolo sad to see him gone.

Frankly stupid and disappointing to have him ousted on essentially a luck challenge so early.

Yeah that was a crappy, almost pure luck challenge. This show will suffer with him gone, just like Champs vs Challengers did when he left. Wes is good at being a weasel, like Bananas, but rarely can back it up in the physical aspect (no more steroids) like Bananas can.

I'm watching the Countdown and Chill special, I thought it would be some sort of replacement for the Shit They Should Have Shown but like 2/3rds of these are just from the same couple of seasons with just old interviews. So lame

I'm actually kind of sad to see Bananas go.... He could actually get into the heads of the Pros and I don't see anyone left on the Champs side being able to gain any kind of edge that way.

Lolo cray cray. She sure does have a chip on her shoulder about everything. I bet she doesn't accept the challenge.

She shouldn't. She should beat the holy hell out of that little girl in front of the other females on her team and then slake her thirst on their tears.

Her name being borderline NSFW makes what Lolo is about to do to her all the more horrifying and therefore the blanched looks on her teammates' faces afterwards all the more comical.
