Well this is something new to the Challenge formula. I had my tv on late last night apparently Banannas has some tv show he hosts on NBC. I don't know the name of it, you have to wonder how much longer he'll get to do these shows as he is well past MTV's age limit.

It's called 1st Look. He's been doing that for around a year or so.

Sean Duffy is resigning from congress. He says it's for family reasons, but I figure this means he's coming back to the Challenge.

I know the Challenge part is a joke but he's retiring for serious reasons. His wife is pregnant and the baby has something wrong with its heart.

Didn't know he was a Challenge alumni.

I never have understood how people can just "retire" because their kid or their spouse has a health issue??? How do you continue to pay for bills? The healthcare? The mortgage?

Seems to me that is the worst time to retire. I know I couldn't afford to retire if something happened to my kid.

Anyway...I looked his photos up from when he was on The Real World and don't even remember the guy and I heavy watched that show back then. Did he do anything memorable that could jog a memory of him?

He can probably make more (on his own time schedule) doing speeches and cable news commentaries, etc. plus investments from connections made during his time in Congress.

A lot of politicians rake it in after leaving government.

I know you can get it with Sling, but I think you have to pay $5 to add it on.

It's about being present with the family. Being there for you kid or spouse . People who can afford to up and "retire" due to stuff like this are busy people and often don't have the time to spend with family. So the 'retirement" helps that.

Theo Campbell, from this season and last, is now blind in one eye after getting hit by a champagne cork:

Pluto TV has a channel dedicated to the Challenge. The other day they had on Rivals 2 and yesterday they had Invasion of the Champions. I haven't checked to see of they air random episodes or show the whole season in order.

I thought maybe it was just the premier but it looks like at least the first few episodes of the new season are 90 minutes.

Re: The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2 (MTV) -- premieres 8/28/19

I've been out of town on vacation and finally got around to watching this episode. My main takeaway is Georgia has horrible taste in men. She was with Bear and now she's with Josh? She's a good looking girl. She can do so much better. It's great to have Laurel back. I enjoyed seeing her push girls around in the Flag challenge. The US team is stacked and I don't see how they can't win even if paranoia destroys whatever team chemistry they have. Turbo, Jordan, Wes, Johnny, Zach, Laurel, Cara, Smashley, Kam and Tori that's a helluva of lineup. Also, the ratings for the season premiere were great: https://deadline.com/2019/08/the-cha...tv-1202707569/

I always wondered about this but am too lazy to look it up myself. I personally have zero interest in anything that airs on MTV -- except the Challenge shows which I never miss (ETA: I do also watch Catfish with the wife). Glad to hear they get good ratings, but how do the ratings for the Challenge compare to other MTV shows? How many people are there like me who avoid MTV like an STD but come back for the Challenge?

I believe it's one of their top 3 highest rated shows. It usually does really well in the DVR ratings. Here are DVR Ratings from May. https://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/dv...may-6-12-2019/ Only Teen Mom II did better than The Challenge. The Challenge was in the top 10 of all Cable shows that week.

Wow, that surprises me. I guess we don't have to worry about cancellation for a while.

It's usually the number 1, 2, or 3 cable show on the day it airs. Sometimes NBA games will move it down a notch or two, but it's been doing really well recently. I think adding the International contestants and people from other reality shows have really helped the ratings. It was the number 3 cable show on Wednesday in the 18-39 demo behind Yellowstone and Basketball Wives 8.

I am surprised by the ratings. It must be from the built-in audience because they sure don't catch any new viewers from repeats since they only seem to show Ridiculousness almost 24 hours a day.

Forgot to mention that I was disappointed to see CT's shape. I was really hoping he was going to get it together and get back to his fighting weight but he looked even doughier than last time.
