I don't have Twitter but Googled and found that she supposedly called Josh gay if anyone else was looking for an answer.

That’s the third time this season someone has been “deactivated” with no explanation. This sweeping shit under the rug stuff is dumb.

Jesus this show has gone soft. They could've just not aired her saying it. This show was built on bad behavior.

I agree. Pretty pathetic.

Supposedly Josh blubbered like always, and that bitch Devin (and Logan) demanded production kick her off. Devin has fully reminded me why I couldn't stand him before last season. And really I only liked him last year because he was poking people I disliked more.

Certainly it lends more backstory to Josh trying to be Amanda's friend after her nomination and her basically telling him to fuck off. I don't particularly care for Amanda, but she wears who she is on her sleeve, and I kind of like that.

It's always great to see the goof go home. Kaycee laying out Tori was probably the most interesting thing Kaycee's done on The Challenge. Tori's attractive, but she is annoying and fake.

It's pretty much rooting for CT by default again. Although, Kyle does amuse me because he's such a cockroach.

I like to root for the underdog so I was sad to see Josh go.

Big T just announced her retirement from The Challenge. She's been accepted into her dream culinary school.

They have a The Shit They Should’ve Shown up on The Challenge’s YouTube channel… most of it felt like stuff they did show.

I hadn't heard that CT and his wife were back together. Good for them.

According to Amanda because of all of the Covid production delays she was really up against a hard deadline to get home otherwise she might lose custody. That's why she went in (told them to vote for her) and that's why she picked Tori instead of Nany. She didn't want to beat one of her friends if she was leaving, and would try to figure it out if she sent Tori home (she was talking with her lawyer but things were far from certain). Wish she would have gotten to puzzle so she could have sent Tori home.

All of these fools will deserve it when CT wins next week.

CT is in incredible shape again. He's like the Tom Brady of The Challenge. I think Logan has a fair chance of beating CT in an elimination next season. He looks to be the next Challenge monster.

CT's going back to back. Everyone played a scared game and they were scared to throw him in. The correct strategy is to throw him in every single elimination that he doesn't have immunity.

Devin struggling and saying "I'm not built for this" during a final. Then you're on the wrong show. Go back to Are You The One.

I'm glad CT won and fine with Kaycee winning. They are more generous than me... my initial thought was to give $100k to the others to split.

Felt bad for Nany.

Kaycee being on the losing team and getting to choose CT won it for her. Would've rather seen her and Tori square up. Was this the closest finish ever? Like seconds difference.

Taxes eat almost 50% of winnings so CT/Kaycee really gave away 100k versus 200k. Still a classy move. Would've structured it so 2nd got more than 3rd but whatever.

Glad to hear CT won. I gave up on this season about 5 or 6 episodes in and probably won't go back. The casting has been bad in recent years but this year it was atrocious and made it unwatchable for me.

Guess I need to check out the Allstars Challenge show but the last thing I need is another streaming channel.

"Kaycee would you like to win the money, or would you like to pick someone other than CT?"

To be fair, there wasn't much of a final left, and Tori and Kyle could have won that because the hike was fairly even.

I would feel bad for Nelson and Nany, but they lost because they couldn't figure out the square puzzle. If anyone on their team could have done that they would have won because Devin was so soft. Besides, especially Nany, got herself in a good spot and didn't have to do anything all year.

She never even had to put her cigarette out until the final started. She got a poignant exit that avoided watching her anchor someone to last place.

I don't dislike her, I just know there are much better cast options out there. She adds little to the show.

I'm glad to see CT win again. I wonder if he's going to take a break or retire now that he has started acting. That was generous of him and Kaycee to share some of the winnings. Bananas wouldn't have shared any. If Devin could get in decent shape, he could do well on this show. He's got the puzzles and memorization down. Scuba Nelly is no more.

All Stars is so much better than the last two seasons of the main show. They offer free months of Paramount Plus occasionally. You could get a free month and watch both seasons. There's only 20 episodes.

CT discusses his future here: https://ew.com/tv/ct-tamburello-the-...ure-all-stars/

I don't think he gives a definitive answer on if he'll be back, but I'm guessing he will, maybe after taking some time off.

I know many on here aren't Kam fans, so this should be good news for you all. Kam won't be on The Challenge for awhile. She's expecting her first child with Leroy.

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