Is this the first season with Tori and Jordan since they split?

Where's The Goof?

It is. The goof was only an alternate this season. No goof this season, but we have to deal with Fessy.

Yep and Jordan. They were both unofficially suspended from the MTV Challenge for a few seasons. Jordan due to social media posts and Turbo for getting out of control during his argument with Jordan on War of the Worlds 2.

They aired a launch special tonight. Check your DVR to see if it recorded. The new season officially premieres Wednesday.

Btwn the The Challenge Usa and the Survivor 37 Intl Influx I think Producer's are well aware they need to actually have some new breakout star's..................and then this give us this worn out retread cast. Honestly looks like they are trying to set up Nany or Anessa getting their first win.

Not disappointed to see Kaycee and Kayleigh go tonight, not a fan of either of them. And God help me it was actually nice to see Bananas enter the game. Can't exactly say I can see myself rooting for him at any point, but there is a nostalgic comfort in it, kind of "OK, now we have ourselves a serious Challenge season!"

Was Kaycee even in the episode? Seems weird that they even showed her in ads for the new season. Couldn't they have edited around that?

I knew Tori wasn't going home based on her appearing in ads I've seen for the new season (unless they ended up bringing teams back).

Kaycee (and her "ride or die" brother) were there when they entered the house the first night. They then disappeared before the first daily challenge.

It seems Kaycee and her brother had Covid. She also had to drop out of Big Brother All Stars two years ago because she had Covid then too.

Re: The Challenge Season 38 Ride or Dies (MTV) 10/12/22

I just finished the season premiere. I really liked the elimination format. The draw is great. It’s reminiscent of the card flip in Free Agents. The music was also great.

I hope Olivia sticks around for awhile. She’s easy on the eyes.

Turbo has gone full on villain. He won one season and now he thinks he’s the greatest of all time. I wonder how much of a language barrier there is with him. I feel like English not being his first language is part of the problem, but he’s still turned into a jerk with a massive ego. I feel sorry for his partner. She seems cool.

I wish that they wouldn't let the other players help the teams in eliminations like this one. I'd be be better to see a team win entirely on their own.

Too bad we missed out on Turbo and Jordan together again. At least we got to keep Olivia though.

Re: The Challenge Season 38 Ride or Dies (MTV) 10/12/22

^ While there's always been some amount of shouting of encouragement and assistance from the non-participating players during eliminations, the nature of this elimination took it to absurd levels. The "winning" team in the elimination was reduced to NPCs (non-playing characters) and short of quitting there was zero chance they would lose. And yes, social game is part of the Challenge but this particular elimination was rendered pointless. If it is going to be this why bother with eliminations, just vote people out like any of a hundred other shows.

No doubt Turbo can be abrasive and probably tough to get along with at times, but not sure why Nany thinks he is therefore required to sit silently and be lectured by her or else.

I can’t believe we’re going to miss the Turbo and Jordan reunion. I’m glad Olivia didn’t get eliminated, but she did have a very unfair advantage.

Since she got a great partner, it's good to see that Aneesa got in the best shape of her life so she could win. Oh wait....

Johnny's not winning with Nany.
Jordan's not winning with Aneesa.
Kaycee's not winning her pip squeak brother.
It's early, but it looks like Laurel's partner kind of sucks.

I don't know. Did Devin improve his cardio? When does CT get here? (yes, I know he's not listed in the first post, and the third new arriving team is spoiled there)

I think CT is retired. He pretty much said so on Devin's podcast. He said his heart just wasn't in it to keep appearing on the show anymore.

Translation- I want an apperance fee next time I play so it is financially beneficial to me even if I am eliminated early.

Everyone gets appearance fees already. Some vets get $50,00 to $80,000 just to show up.

Talk about idiotic moves while in power. Really bad gameplay.

Michele was a great Survivor player, but she’s struggling at The Challenge. She’s arguably one of the best social players ever to play Survivor, but she was terrible this episode.

I hate to see Laurel leave this early, but we were going to lose an all time great either way. She chose a bad ride or die. It's pretty bad when Anessa Is better than Jakk.

Jordan is just a fantastic competitor. I bet he would have more championships than Bananas if he did as many seasons as Bananas. Jordan and Laurel have only been on seven seasons each, but it seems like they've been on more.
