She'd better not get thrown into an elimination early or else you won't be seeing her for very long.

The women's pool is especially weak. Sarah and Laurel probably don't want to come back and it hurts the show. They never fully replaced Paula, Susie and Ev.

I was looking at the women's pool and trying to rank them.

1. Cara Maria
2. Jenna (As long as it's not a puzzle)
3. Camilia
4. Anessa (Who I think is incredibly overrated)
5. Smashley (I think she got really lucky in Invasion of the Champions with who she got for her parter in each round of the Final.)
6. Kailah
7. Tori Deal (She's fit and it showed on the AYTO spinoff)
8. Amanda
9. Veronica
10. Tie (Britni, Marie, Latoya, Simone, Nicole, Jemmye)

Re: The Challenge XXX: Dirty Thirty (MTV) -- Premieres 7-18-17

It's weird to have a theme of "dirty" players and not see Wes in there. I agree then women side is fairly week, it would be nice to see one or two other really athletic women in there, even someone like Emily from a few years back.

Premieres tonight.

Did anyone watch the special last week? Veronica is still so sexy to me. But I don't see her lasting long here.

I watched it the other day. Kind of surprised they didn't mention Derrick's return after a long absence but did have Veronica there talking about the cast.

I was wondering about that too.

After bailing on the last outing and ignoring the one against other athletes, I'll watch this one for Derrick as long as he's around.

Looking forward to the new season tonight. I still haven't watched last week's special, but I'm going to watch it and tonight's episode when I get home from work tonight.

Re: The Challenge XXX: Dirty Thirty (MTV) -- Premieres 7-18-17

I'll post this before any posts about the episode tonight. Are the past seasons of The Challenge available for streaming for free or part of a subscription service? They used to be available on Hulu and Prime, but it looks they both services have dropped them. I know you can buy them by the episode, but that would be an expensive purchase. I'd love to go back and watch season 1-15.

Pretty good first episode. Players not being fully eliminated always brings a fun twist for the players.

Oh Ashley

I was kind of bored through the episode and I saw Ashley whining and going to a vehicle but was that whole thing because she didn't have clothes/lost luggage?

They seemed to be grooming her to be a challenge star but quitting is just pathetic and washes away all her "accomplishments" in my opinion.

Re: The Challenge XXX: Dirty Thirty (MTV) -- Premieres 7-18-17

Ashley has had a freak out "i wanna go home!" moment every season she's been on. It was pretty funny to see her actually do it this early in the game.

Also kind of funny to see Cara push her a little to do it.

Ashley quitting was completely lame. I'm sure production would get her some underwear and socks if she asked... CT not being let in the country was pretty funny, but it looks like he's there for the next episode. Also, I wonder if they'll bring in a replacement for Smashley.

That was pretty ruthless of Cara. Love it.
Ashley's shtick is pretty old, but here bikini bod looked great.

Curious to see how they deal with the gender neutral. If they'll let him choose which side he'll compete on.

That would be hilarious. But he is such a giant puss I don't doubt most of the women would crush him anyway.

It was great. She does do that every season but I don't think she ever actually wanted to go home. I think she goes full Smashley and gets dramatic but once she wakes up the next morning she realizes that she doesn't really want to quit. I'm pretty sure that's how this would have played out too if Cara didn't step in.

I like the Redemption House twist but really only because I didn't want to see Darrell get the boot so quickly. I don't know how it'll play out but hope he finds his way back into the main game.

According to Bananas, he was asked before the show if he wanted to compete against the men or women and he chose to compete against the men.

This is just a guess, but I'll spoiler it in case I'm right.
Spoiler:
I was assuming the Ashley thing was faked. The producers had her throw a fake tantrum and leave (completely "in character" for her). I'm guessing we soon find out that she and CT are already at that redemption house, maybe as some kind of team leaders. It took me a second to figure out why they'd pick those two (CT makes sense, Ashley not so much), and then I remembered they're the winners of the previous challenge.

I'm guessing Ashley was doing what she does every season (getting camera time/being a drama queen) and expected the producers to convince her to stay. Maybe they did attempt to get her to stay or maybe they didn't try very hard...

I think Cara's subtle urging pushed her over the edge. Ashley's an annoying drama queen but her body looked really good by the pool. Also looked different facially not sure if it was the hair style or what.

Wow! Things got heated in the Redemption House! Shane has been removed from both of his appearances on The Challenge.
