Episode 4 – The Challenge
When I was about 11, my aunt told me about how she used to watch a show in college called the challenge. The show was on MTV and was basically a combination of reality TV and extreme sports. I gave the show a shot and have been hooked ever since. Every Wednesday night, I sit down, pop open a bag of popcorn and enjoy the total madness that is the challenge.
Ironically enough, the 35th season of the challenge has been named total madness and has been a banger from the jump. Tonight’s episode featured swimming in a tunnel, a bar fight, and a double girls elimination.
I will now break down this years cast.
This is Aneesa’s 13th challenge. Thus far, she has to yet to win a challenge championship and there is a good reason for it. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Aneesa is the farthest thing you could find from athletic. She sucks at the weekly challenges and constantly gets her ass kicked in eliminations. She does make for good reality TV however, and that is the reason she constantly gets asked to come back.
Ashley Mitchell (Eliminated)
Ashley, who is a former challenge champion, is one of the biggest cry babies you will ever find. When Ashley doesn’t get her way, she throws a fit and causes a scene. It a very unattractive trait to have and is a big reason for her early elimination during this season.
Cory is known to be one of the bad boys of the challenge. He has been kicked off of the show for fighting before and has hooked up with multiple women. However, since his last appearance on the show, Cory has become a father, which has completely changed his overall mindset and attitude.
Chris “CT” Tamburello (Eliminated)
CT is one of the all-time challenges greats. He has won multiple finals, countless eliminations and is considered as one of the most dominant competitors to ever enter The Challenge.
Dee is last years reigning champion. Once considered a layup, Dee has time and tine again proved her doubters wrong and is now considered as an elite competitor.
Jenna Compono (Eliminated)
Jenna, who is also known as the badass barbie, is having herself one hell of a season. Compono has been in a long time relationship with former challenge star, Zach. Throughout this season, Zach has been accusing Jenna of cheating on him and has been demanding that she come home. However, Jenna has stuck to her guts and has been on a tear for the ages, winning one of the biggest upset eliminations the game has ever seen.
This is only Jennies second challenge but im telling you right now, if she hangs around for a bit, she will go down as one of the all-time greats. She is an absolute specimen who has no physical weaknesses.
