No comments yet? Pretty unreal to see CT taken out like that. It shows the dangers of putting yourself in. Well, at least he was a winner last season.

What good is having multiple red skulls over having just one?

Bad elimination challenge for dad bod. The poor guy could barely stand straight when it was done.

At least he said he would get in fighting shape for next time. It would be good to see him sort of like his old self.

He said that when he was eliminated on War of the Worlds and nothing really changed. I'm surprised he lost that elimination. He dominated a similar rope type challenge vs Darrell on Invasion of the Champions. He probably weighed his heaviest the past two seasons though. That and I think he smokes led to his gassing out. I hope Pops takes it seriously now and gets back into fighting shape.

Remember when Beth was always the "old person" on these shows? I'm sure that CT and Bananas are probably a lot older now than she was on her last season.

I'm trying to remember how Wes got to be on The Challenge. Was he on The Real World or Road Rules. I'm thinking I might remember him on Road Rules.

It looks like Beth was last on the challenge in 2008. She was born in 69. So she was 39 during her last season. https://thechallenge.fandom.com/wiki/Beth_Stolarczyk CT is currently 39. Real World started casting older people so cast rookies started being older. Kaycee Clark on this season is a rookie and She's 32. Jenny West who debuted last season is 33. Rookies are a lot older now that they used to be.

I hated seeing CT go out like that since he has been my favorite for years.

Unless it was clever editing, it looked like he had the door open wide enough to squeeze in before Jay got in and I was sitting there screaming at the screen..."Go on in!" Was there a rule that the door had to be opened completely or have nothing at all on it that I missed? Or was CT just that slow?

I don't think there is any advantage to having two skulls other than you eliminate one more person who may make it to final. Plus, it should put some people on alert now and no longer thinking that Jay is a lay-up and that will hopefully have different people going in instead of every guy's challenge being Jay vs. someone.

I knew CT was toast when they had every single person making comments about how CT was playing smart and dominating the challenge. I knew he was toast even though it looked close because of that.

I will admit it is fun seeing Bananas and Wes joining forces and getting along. That Scraggy dude and his girl have to go though. How can two people be both dull and obnoxious at the same time?

Anyone think Rogan would have beaten Jay on that challenge? I don't.

I assume you didn't see Swaggy C and Bayleigh on Big Brother. Their only potential is that they provide good drama. Hopefully, we get to see Bayleigh go off on someone like she did on Big Brother:

Yeah, I have never watched Big Brother more than a few episodes.

I watched the very first season a little and just found it dull and repetitive. Tried a few years later and the format hadn't really changed so I just never could get into it.

Cold War has to be one of the more dangerous weekly challenges in recent history right? Dee is quickly becoming the new Cara.

It was getting down to 50 degrees. 60 degrees is still close to 40 degrees lower than your normal body temperature 98.6. They were in it for awhile too. Some of those puzzle pieces took awhile to get loose. Edit to add. Hypothermia starts when your body temperature is 95 degrees or lower.

They were in water that was roughly the temperature of running only the cold water in a shower (55 degrees in my house), but they were immersed in it, which of course would feel worse.

I think it can also affect people differently. Plus Nelson got fucked with an all girl team and it appeared that those puzzle pieces were decently heavy.

It was a shame to see Corey and Kyle puss out like they did. They didn't even try.

And I didn't want to see Mattie kicked off the show but dang I wanted to see her punch the fuck out of Ashley's face. And Nany getting in Mattie's face was hilarious. Nany wouldn't last a minute against Mattie.

And how does Jay keep getting the called the smallest dude there ("built like a 12 year old boy")? Jordan, Bear, & Swaggy all look smaller than him.

I don't care for Jay but I wouldn't mind seeing him send a few more of these trash-talkers home.

Josh is the most delusional person ever to be cast on The Challenge. You would think that losing to Jordan in a tug of war elimination would have humbled him. I loved the use of Pretty Fly (For a White Guy) during Bear's seduction of Kaliah. I feel really bad for Jay. Rogan leveled him during the elimination challenge.

Josh is a blithering moron...an emotionally stunted crybaby in XXXXL diapers. Would it surprise anyone that he lived off his parents who coddled him well into adulthood? Of course it wouldn't.

I picked this show back up this season after I quit last year, because I'm home and why not, but seriously they are doing bloated hour an a half long episodes, and they still can't fucking finish the episode. It's not like it's some big cliff hanger either. Jay is either hurt and goes home or he's beat and goes home. It's too bad because I like Jay. Liked him on Survivor too until he blindsided Michaela. She'd be great on this show, but I think she has a real job.

Does anyone else find Jordan's new look this season off putting?
