Didn't CT just pound Adam(?) with his fist on a long ago season with no consequences? Probably before TJ, but I doubt that TJ is actually the one deciding to eject people.

So do they no longer need to earn a skull to make into the final?

Anyone else feel blinded by Kyle's teeth every week?

He got kicked off that season and was banned from the challenge for several years. He didn't get to come back until he came in as a mercenary in that famous JB backpack elimination.

OK, it probably should have been a permanent ban from what I remember. What Fessy did was pretty minimal...just pushing Josh with an open hand from what I could tell. I guess they want to have a zero tolerance policy.

It CT's defense, his brother had just been murdered. He was already a volatile guy, and he wasn't really in a good head space. MTV shouldn't have used him that season. Today he might have been permanently banned, but they gave him a few years, and I think we would all agree having him around these last ten years has been a value add for the franchise.

Times have changed a lot since the earlier days. Now any contact of a hand to the head or face will most likely get you booted. Nelson did almost the same thing to Derrick on Dirty 30 and he got tossed too.

Apparently Fessy had been involved with some other arguments prior involving security and had been warned before. The cast was put on alcohol restrictions due to so many fights and out of control behavior that MTV is choosing not to show. I think prior to the merger with CBS this would have been aired but who knows. What is true is that a lot of drama/hookups and altercations are being edited out.

I miss the days of the Sh!T They Should have Shown episodes and the short unedited clips MTV used to put up on their website. Some of the best moments were in those. I mean they put up the uncensored CT/Adam fight on there. Now the whole episode is unavailable.

I bought the Adam/CT fight episode on iTunes. It was well worth the $2.99 that I spent on it. I'm surprised Josh wasn't kicked off too for striking a member of the security team.

There's no red skull twist this season.

I loved that the smart people actually used the dive machine to dive under and grab the puzzle pieces on the turn. The ones that stopped and dove under wasted a lot of time. Why are the Big Brother people so annoying. Amber is starting to get on my nerves. She's a beautiful girl, but she's so fake.

Loved the move at the end by Priscilla. Lay low so far, and then BOOM.

I liked the move by the editors. Lay low and then boom they spring Bettina on us. Wait, she's been here?

It seems like winning last year has given Amber an oversized ego. Strange, because she's not really young. She should know better.

Yeah Bettina’s laugh was unforgettable. Amber B is 33, but she’s acting like she’s 22.

I hadn't really noticed her before. It was other assets in this last episode that got my attention.

Yeah those things are massive. She has a pretty face, too. Bettina has my blessing to appear in future seasons.

This season is gonna take forever at the rate it's moving.

Apparently Fessy was hooking up with Bettina too. Dude was cleaning up.

I thought Bettina and Cory were going to struggle in the elimination, because Bettina is very top heavy… They did, but they persevered and came out on top. It looks like Cory is getting the villain edit this season. If they switch to an individual game, they better throw CT in every elimination or he’s going to win this season.

The problem with that is no one is really going to volunteer to face him. With some of the younger physical guys already gone, he's probably the top physical competitor left. Plus, he's also the smartest guy there.

The only chance of getting rid of CT is to throw him in every elimination you can if he doesnít win immunity. Heís bound to lose one if you throw him in enough times. The wear and tear of all those eliminations might even weaken him for the final if he wins all them. Theyíre playing scared and CTís going to win again. Itís better to lose against him in an elimination than the Final. Sometimes second and third place doesnít win any money at all.

I can't see Cory, Kyle, Devin, or Goof volunteering to try to take him out. Nelson might be dumb enough to try. There are still three rookies left though.

They were trying to paint a narrative that Ashley hadn't won an elimination before, but she's won 3 (Invasion/Final Reckoning/War of the Worlds 2). I was really confused by that, but I was rooting for her and happy that she won. BTW I posted the cast for All Stars 3 in the All Stars 2 thread. It's a fantastic cast.

I don't get the decision to not throw in CT. It's a bloodless way to do it because he picks his opponent, and it can't be you. Maybe you even get lucky and someone Jay's him out of the game.

I don't know if anyone caught it, but apparently Kyle has a baby on the way.

Bettina just revealed that she was pregnant while on The Challenge. That's four women in four seasons that were pregnant while filming Faith, Melissa, Natalie, and now Bettina.

Re: The Challenge: Spies, Lies and Allies (MTV) -- premieres 8/11/21

CT is an an actor now?

Chris ‘CT’ Tamburello (MTV’s The Challenge) and Oscar nominee Tom Berenger (Platoon) have been set to star in a remake of 1930s classic The Most Dangerous Game.

Wonder if he'll have to miss a season to do this.

He was in a horror movie. He mumbles way too much. He would be hard to understand in a movie.

What happened in tonight's episode with Ashley getting kicked off The challenge? I went back 2x to see if I missed something. all TJ says is she broke the rules and is gone with no explanation.

Re: The Challenge: Spies, Lies and Allies (MTV) -- premieres 8/11/21

You can find the supposed reason in responses on Ashley's Twitter feed if you look deep enough. Basically, it involves something about another player that may or may not even be true, but not relevant to the game any way. Something they didn't want shown though and felt worthy of dismissing her, it seems.
