Why The Challenge Goes Beyond the TV

Posted: August 23, 2011 by Keith Stone in Challenge Week, The Challenge

Joshy Bananas took some time out from playing flip cup with his bros to throw in his two cents as to what makes The Challenge so special:

 The Challenge is great. No denying that. But is it greater than any other epic reality show?

Yes, because as any true Challenge fan will tell you, The Challenge can be used as a litmus test to determine who can become a friend of yours in the real world (not reality, but the real world—and not The Real World, but the real world).

Whenever I meet a new person, if we ever happen to discuss The Challenge and we both mention our epic fandom, an instant kinship is formed. This is because if a person likes this show, they also like: fun, insanity, competition, fratiness, chillness.

That’s chill in my book, broooooo.

Basically, if you know that CT is the best athlete known to man, we can be friends. Siiiiiiiick!

Evelyn likes to keep it under the Challenge radar, but she’s got a wild side that comes out when you least expect it. The girl can’t help it that she’s too focused on winning to get drunk and hook up. Plus, she already made out with half the chicks on the show already. Ev is one of the fiercest competitors, as evidenced this season by her virtuoso performance. She got Paula Walnuts into the Finals and if she can get Paula to the winner’s circle, in my eyes that makes her the greatest female in Challenge history. And the whole liking girls thing helps. Dayyyyyyyyyyyyuuuuuuuuuuuuum!

Trivia Time: Challenge Edition

Posted: August 22, 2011 by Keith Stone in Challenge Week, The Challenge, trivia

T.J. Lavin doesn’t like quitters. In fact, Challenge competitors that give it their all get him quite sexually aroused. There’s one in particular that really does it for T.J. This person has won four different Challenges. No one else has more than three. That brings us to our Question of the Week. Get it right and you’re safe from the Jungle this week. The answer, as always, is after the jump.

Who is the only competitor to win four Challenges? (and a hint: it is not Paula Walnuts)

As T.J. would say, they killed it.
