The reigning Masters champion, chasing a 16th major title and historic 83rd PGA Tour victory, is making only his second appearance back since golf returned from its coronavirus-enforced shutdown in June.
Woods goes out at 8.33am local time (4.33pm BST) on Thursday alongside McIlroy - who he was also paired with for the first two rounds at the Memorial Tournament three weeks ago - and Thomas, who leapfrogged Jon Rahm at the top of the world rankings with his WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational win on Sunday.
Defending champion Brooks Koepka, looking to claim a historic three-peat of the Wanamaker Trophy, also has a morning tee time on Thursday and goes out alongside Gary Woodland and Champion Golfer Shane Lowry - golf's two most recent major winners.
Rahm, one of five players with a chance of ending the week as world No 1, partners fellow Spaniard Sergio Garcia and 2005 winner Phil Mickelson, while big-hitting Bryson DeChambeau also has a late tee time as he opens his bid for a maiden major win with Rickie Fowler and Adam Scott.
Jordan Spieth, who has another chance to complete golf's Grand Slam this week, has been handed a morning tee time with former US Open champions Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose. วิเคราะห์บอลราคา

2020.07.13 20:21 LearningIsListening A not-so-brief rundown of letters G-I in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Black Book'

Below is a rundown of letters G-I of Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cpis3n/a_brief_rundown_of_the_first_ten_pages_of_jeffrey/).
I also wrote about letters D-F on July 5, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hlrba8/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_df_in_jeffrey/). There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this.
I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here: https://www.coreysdigs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Jeffrey-Epsteins-Little-Black-Book-unredacted.pdf

The following website makes some startling connections between Garnero, Epstein, and others (source: https://aeltri.com/2019/02/12/john-of-god-mario-garnero-and-epstein/). Quick summary: Record producer Damon Dash (former co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records with Jay-Z) allegedly raped a supermodel who worked for Naomi Campbell at a party thrown by Garnero (source: https://www.standard.co.uk/news/poshs-friend-sued-for-rape-6939248.html).

Hefner III, Bob: Founder and CEO of GHK Companies, which specializes in oil and natural gas. Founded the Robert and MeiLi Hefner Foundation which sponsors educational trips to China for outstanding high school students. His grandfather, Robert Hefner Sr., served as Mayor of Oklahoma City, was a Supreme Court Justice of Oklahoma, was a member of the executive council of the Boy Scouts of America, and was a thirty-second degree Freemason. Although I try not to engage in speculation, this article makes a connection between Jeffrey Epstein, Bob Hefner III, and a winning Powerball lottery ticket that was purchased in Oklahoma in 2008 (source: https://www.thelostogle.com/2019/08/14/no-jeffrey-epstein-did-not-win-25-million-from-an-oklahoma-lottery-ticket-or-did-he/#comments). It’s too long to summarize. Read it and check it out.
Heiden, Lisa: Worked in Manhattan and London as an executive for ABC. Close friend of Ghislaine Maxwell. According to the fantastic research done by this person (https://twitter.com/Agent99Mom/status/1280580456400982016), two of Lisa Heiden’s properties are listed as an address for Ellmax, a company set up by Ghislaine.
Heineken, Mr. Fredie: A Dutch businessman for the Heineken brewing company. Was chairman and CEO from 1971-1989.
Helen and Tim Shifter: Helen is a former Vogue Magazine staffer. Tim is former CEO of LeSportsac and serves as Senior Advisor at Blackstone Group, a private equity firm. The Schifters are personal friends of Ghislaine Maxwell.
Helvin, Marie: Former fashion model and former girlfriend of Imran Khan, the current Prime Minister of Pakistan. According to her memoir, she knows pretty much any popular celebrity from the ‘70s and ‘80s.
Herbert, Jason: Likely a financial adviser based in London.
Hermes, Olga & Olaf: Olaf is a handbag heir. Olga is his ex-wife.

Heseltine invested in Conservative Parliament member Harvey Proctor’s business after Proctor was forced to resign after it was revealed he had sexual relationships with and took nude pictures of male prostitutes aged 17-21 at his home (source: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/members-interests-top-tories-lose-on-proctors-shop-the-retailer-1445666.html). At the time, it was illegal to have same-sex relations with prostiutes under the age of 21.
Heseltine, Mr & Mrs: Same as above.
Heseltine, Ms. Annabel: Journalist, columnist, and TV and radio broadcaster. At the age of 22, she became the Assistant-editor for Hong Kong Tatler (there’s that publication again). Daughter of Baron Michael Heseltine.

Descendant of the Mountbatten family, a British dynasty (although much of their background is German). Granddaughter of the much-decorated war hero, Lord Mountbatten (Prince Charles’s mentor), who, according to FBI files, was “a homosexual with a perversion for young boys” (source: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9745399/lord-mountbatten-fbi-dossier-prince-charles/). Prince Charles is her second cousin and Godfather.
Hill, Anthony: Son of Robin Hall, 8th Marquess of Downshire and Juliet Weld-Forester, daughter of 7th Baron Forester. Couldn’t find any more info.
Himmelstein, Howard: Co-owner of clothing brand Camp Beverly Hill and a producescreenwriter.
Hirsch, Jeff: Owner of Foto Care, a shop that sells professional camera equipment. Claims he is only in the ‘Black Book’ because he sold an expensive camera to Ghislaine many years ago and had to go to her house to show her how to use it (source: https://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article234312632.html). This, however, doesn’t explain why there are two numbers listed under Hirsch’s name that are attributed to Scott Geffert, the General Manager for Advanced Imaging at the MET museum. This could all be innocent or these two could have assisted in Epstein’s hidden camera setup and helped Epstein get high quality pictures of his victims. We can’t be sure.
Hissom, Robert & Andrea: Robert is the founder of Aspen Capital Partners, a large property management firm. He is a friend of Prince Charles. His ex-wife, Andrea, famously got remarried to Steve Wynn, billionaire Las Vegas hotel tycoon. Prince Harry was a guest of Wynn’s at his Encore resort.

Holland-Martin, Ben: Works for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC). His mother, Rosamund, was chairman of the NSPCC for 20 years while Princess Margaret was President and was involved with the NSPCC for more than 50 years (source: https://www.newspapers.com/image/?clipping_id=36141343&fcfToken=eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJmcmVlLXZpZXctaWQiOjI1OTU4NDE2NSwiaWF0IjoxNTk0MzMwNTQ0LCJleHAiOjE1OTQ0MTY5NDR9.j1V2e0Mr3tJmPzusRYNneLVhUskWiIAvNIjdIpvuzj4).

As you are aware, the City is currently responding to the novel coronavirus, and we want to make sure that you are provided with the most up-to-date information.
Cómo ya sabe, la Ciudad de Nueva York está respondiendo al brote del coronavirus, y queremos asegurarnos que reciba información actualizada.

MAYOR DE BLASIO, COMMISSIONER GARCIA AND CHANCELLOR CARRANZA ANNOUNCE SUMMER MEAL HUBS
Meal Hub service will continue this summer for all New Yorkers from 7:30 AM to 1:30 PM Monday through Friday at 400 sites
NEW YORK—Mayor Bill de Blasio, COVID-19 Food Czar and Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia and Chancellor Richard A. Carranza today announced grab-and-go Meal Hubs will continue to operate through the summer as the City continues to fight food insecurity during the COVD-19 crisis. Starting on June 29th, Meal Hub summer service will operate at approximately 400 sites across the city and continue regular service from 7:30 AM to 1:30 PM, Monday through Friday. Grab-and-go meals are available to any New Yorker who needs them. Vegetarian meals that are also halal will be available at all sites, and select sites serving halal chicken and kosher-certified meals will continue during the summer. A full list of sites will be available here.
“New Yorkers shouldn't have to choose between putting food on the table and paying their bills," said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “We’re continuing Grab-and-go meals through the summer to ensure no New Yorkers goes hungry.”
“The hundreds of Grab & Go sites across the city have been a crucial part of ensuring that no New Yorker goes hungry due to this crisis, and I want to thank the working people who will help them stay open throughout the summer,” said New York City Sanitation Commissioner and ‘COVID-19 Food Czar’ Kathryn Garcia. “These meals are available regardless of income, citizenship, or age, and I urge anyone in need to make use of them.”
“Serving over 20 million meals to New Yorkers throughout this crisis has been an honor, and our heroic food service workers have seen it as their duty,” said Schools Chancellor Richard A. Carranza. “We are proud to continue this service throughout the summer for anyone who needs a meal during the week.”
After school buildings were closed on March 15th due to COVID-19, the grab-and-go Meal Hub program began in order to provide nutritious food to students who depend on school meals. As part of the City’s fight against the economic crisis caused by the pandemic, Meal Hub service expanded in early April to include all New Yorkers who need meals during this crisis.
To date, Meal Hubs have served approximately 30 million meals and are currently averaging approximately 550,000 meals a day. Meal Hub service will continue for the duration of this summer. In addition to meals, Meal Hubs are now community hubs for important updates on COVID-19, free books for young people, and access to menstrual hygiene products.
Starting on June 22nd, all Meal Hubs began offering take home pizza meal kits. Take home pizza meal kits can be cooked at home using an oven, microwave, or toaster oven. Meal Hub patrons can pick up pizza alongside to grab-and-go meal offerings, and this option will continue to be available throughout the summer. The DOE will exhaust all existing supplies of pizza in schools to prevent food waste and continue to order more meal kits as needed.
Site locations may change for Summer Meal Hub service. To find the closest open Meal Hub, please visit schools.nyc.gov/freemeals or text “NYC FOOD” or “NYC COMIDA” to 877-877.
"As New York City reaches an unemployment rate of 18% and New Yorkers struggle to pay their bills, the last thing our communities should have to worry about is whether they can put food on the table. I am grateful that the NYC Department of Education will continue the Grab & Go Meal Hub program into the summer – it is critical that New Yorkers maintain access to emergency food assistance throughout the duration of this pandemic and in our greatest moment of need," said State Senator Alessandra Biaggi.
"Neither COVID-19 nor hunger take a summer vacation. It is vital we make sure our children get fed this summer. I support efforts to adapt tools that can get meals to children while keeping them safe during the pandemic," said Assistant Speaker Felix W. Ortiz.
"The effects of the pandemic are far-reaching and have impacted food security for many people across our city," said Council Member Adrienne Adams. “The continuation of grab-and-go meal hubs throughout the summer comes to us during challenging times and displays the administration’s commitment to the fight against hunger in New York City. I look forward to this continued support for all New Yorkers.”
"DOE Grab-and-Go Meal sites have without a doubt been an incredible lifeline for my constituents since the brink of this pandemic, and I'm thrilled that this program will continue even after the academic year has finished for the summer season," said Council Member Margaret S. Chin. "As New York City continues its path towards a full reopening, we must remain committed to preserving the services that have helped hundreds of families survive this crisis to help New Yorkers get back on their feet."
“As the City begins to reopen, it’s critical that all New Yorkers continue to have access to fresh, healthy food and the comprehensive support and resources offered at DOE meal hubs. I thank Commissioner Garcia, Commissioner Carranza, and Mayor de Blasio for their commitment to fighting food insecurity and ensuring New Yorkers are supported throughout the City’s recovery process,” said Council Member Andrew Cohen.
“Even as we enter Phase 2 of reopening the city, and we allow restaurants to reopen, food insecurity continues to be an issue for families across all five boroughs,” said Council Member Vanessa L. Gibson. “Our office has been inundated with calls from residents seeking food assistance since the start of the pandemic and the grab-and-go Meal Hubs have been a great source of support for them. I commend the administration for their decision to continue to operate the Meal Hubs during the summer and for offering Halal and Kosher options to ensure all New Yorkers are able to take advantage of this program.”
"This virus exacerbated food insecurity issues in New York City, the financial stress created by Covid-19 continues to be all too real for many families," said Council Member Ben Kallos. "Extending grab-and-go Meal Hubs throughout the summer will offer families in need something to fall back on when they cannot make ends meet. This is important for children, seniors, and every vulnerable New Yorker in between. Thank you to Mayor de Blasio and Food Czar and Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia as well as Chancellor Richard A. Carranza for working together to make this happen."
"We have seen an unprecedented need for emergency food assistance in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak and expanding summer meal hubs will help ensure all New Yorkers have access to fresh, nutritious food to help get them through these trying times,” said Council Member Peter Koo.
"Covid-19 cases are at record lows in New York City, but the economic impact of the virus has yet to peak. Free meal service for all, including our halal and kosher eating communities, is an essential service," said Council Member Rory Lancman.
"Making sure our most vulnerable families and children are fed is arguably more important now during the recovery than before. No one should have to worry about putting food on the table while they try to restore financial stability. I'm pleased the City will continue the Grab and Go Meal Hubs through the summer,” said Council Member Carlos Menchaca.
"The extension of the Meal Hub program, coupled with the availability of halal and vegetarian options and other crucial resources, represents the City's enduring commitment to provide for all its residents. Today's announcement is an important step to ensuring that individuals and families have access to nutritious food options, and I applaud the Administration's efforts in ensuring that no New Yorker goes hungry," said Council Member I. Daneek Miller.
"COVID-19 has affected New York City in unimaginable ways, but one of the most urgent economic effects of the pandemic was food insecurity. Thankfully, the City stepped in to fill the need with the Meal Hub program. With so many New Yorkers still suffering from lost income and facing limited employment prospects in the coming months, the extension of this program through the summer is vital. I commend the Mayor, Chancellor Carranza, and Commissioner Garcia for keeping this service in place, and I send my heartfelt appreciation to the essential workers that prepare and distribute these meals at our schools," said Council Member Carlina Rivera.
MAYOR DE BLASIO AND CHANCELLOR CARRANZA ANNOUNCE CITYWIDE GRADUATION FOR THE CLASS OF 2020
Event will air on June 30th at 7:00PM on PIX11 and online
NEW YORK—Today, Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Richard A. Carranza announced a citywide graduation celebration will be held on June 30. The graduation will bring the entire city together in celebration of the past accomplishments and bright future of the Class of 2020, featuring student spotlights, musical performances, and special guest speakers—including award-winning artist, and former NYC Public School student and teacher, Lin-Manuel Miranda.
“Graduating high school under normal circumstances is an extraordinary accomplishment, but I am especially impressed by the Class of 2020 and all they have been through to get to this point. In this time of great upheaval and many challenges, they will be leading the way to create a fairer, safer future for all. I could not be more proud to celebrate them with this special sendoff,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.
“Congratulations to the amazing Class of 2020! There’s never been a New York City graduating class like yours. There’s never been a senior year like this!” said Schools Chancellor Richard A. Carranza. “As Chancellor of all New York City Public Schools, and on behalf of all 150,000 staff who make our schools run: I am so proud of you.”
“We’re proud to help make this exciting event available to every New Yorker,” said Bart Feder, Vice President and General Manager of PIX11. “These resilient graduates will play a crucial role in the future of our city and nation, and they’ve earned this recognition”
The COVID-19 crisis disrupted the traditional celebrations honoring the accomplishments and hard work of the Class of 2020, and this special program will be broadcast to all of New York in recognition of all the Class of 2020 has achieved. The graduation celebration, produced by the City in partnership with New York’s Very Own PIX11, will air live on PIX11’s TV channel, website, and social media channels at 7:00PM on June 30th. It will also be livestreamed on the DOE’s and City’s social media channels, as well as at https://www.nycclassof2020.com/.
Kori Chambers, Marysol Castro and Mr. G from PIX11 will host the ceremony, which will feature:
· a musical performance from Brooklyn’s Phony Ppl as well as student musical performances;
· guest speakers including Lin-Manuel Miranda, Pitbull, Kenan Thompson, Nick Kroll, Angela Yee, Tina Fey, Andy Cohen, and more;
· a special valedictorian speech;
· and contributions from family members and educators who have supported our graduating seniors.
The citywide celebration of the Class of 2020 complements ceremonies and events being held in communities across the city. These celebrations are being done virtually, as drive-throughs, and in other unique ways that safely honor this year’s senior class.
MAYOR DE BLASIO ANNOUNCES ILLEGAL FIREWORKS TASK FORCE
As complaints skyrocket, NYPD, FDNY Fire Marshals and Sheriff's Office take action to disrupt fireworks supply chain
NEW YORK—Mayor Bill de Blasio today established a multi-agency task force to crack down on illegal fireworks sales. The task force will target suppliers, distributors and possessors of large quantities of illegal fireworks by conducting investigations and sting operations within and outside of New York City to disrupt supply chains. The FDNY will also launch a public safety campaign, including public service announcements and social media, to illustrate the dangers of illegal fireworks.
The task force will consist of 10 officers from NYPD Intelligence Bureau, 12 FDNY Fire Marshals and 20 members of the Sheriff’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
“Illegal fireworks are both dangerous and a public nuisance” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “We’re cracking down on this activity at the source to ensure the safety of all New Yorkers and the ability of our neighbors to get some sleep.”
“For any number of reasons the use of illegal firework has skyrocketed this year and that has damaged the quality of life in our neighborhoods. The NYPD will continue to work closely with our city partners to address this dangerous issue,” said Police Commissioner Dermot Shea.
“Fireworks are illegal in New York City for a reason: they are extremely dangerous and can cause fires and serious injuries,” said Fire Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro. “Our Fire Marshals will work closely with their fellow law enforcement agencies to address this growing problem that is impacting New Yorkers in communities across our city.”
“Illegal fireworks pose a significant danger to New York families, and the Sheriff’s Office will use its investigative tools in the areas of contraband interdiction in conjunction with our law enforcement agency partners to vigorously suppress the sale and distribution of illegal fireworks,” said Sheriff Joseph Fucito.
MAYOR DE BLASIO AND MACY'S ANNOUNCE 4TH OF JULY CELEBRATION
NEW YORK—Today, Mayor de Blasio and Macy’s announced a fireworks plan in celebration of the 4th of July that will reach every borough for the first time ever. From June 29th to July 1st and on July 4th, a series of fireworks displays will launch from various land and water-based locations across New York City.
“These past few months have been some of the most difficult in our city’s history, and New Yorkers are looking for a break. This 4th of July Celebration with Macy’s will give all New Yorkers a safe and exciting way to enjoy the holiday together, even when we are apart,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.
“New York City is our hometown. Macy’s believes in giving back to the communities where we live and work, and this year, we are taking our Fireworks show on a trip across the city. In reimagining this year’s show, the idea of bringing elements to many parts of our hometown resonated with our team and partners in the City of New York,” said Susan Tercero, Eecutive Producer Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks. “These five-minute surprise displays will showcase Macy’s signature pyrotechnic design and scale, while encouraging spectators to continue following safety and social distancing measures. The multiple location spectacle will culminate with a full-scale television presentation of Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks, capturing the spirit of the city for all New Yorkers and the nation to enjoy, choreographed to a rousing score, and featuring the nation’s best musical performances.”
These smaller, unannounced displays will allow New Yorkers to celebrate all week long. Each show is brief and will be over before residents can gather at the source. With heights reaching up to 1,000 feet from some firing locations, staying close to home and following social distancing guidelines is the best way to enjoy the show.
New Yorkers and spectators across the country will have a front-row view to the displays by tuning to NBC’s national broadcast of Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular (8-10p.m. ET/PT, 7-9 p.m. CT/MT, check local listings). The Nation's most popular Independence Day special will include performances from some of America’s top musical acts and a presentation of the full Macy’s Fireworks show captured throughout the week, including a live grand finale.

Actor and comedian Chris Rock will be bringing Saw back to life with a reboot in 2021. This will be the first _Saw_film since 2017’s Jigsaw. To date, eight feature-length films and one short film make up the _Saw _franchise.
Originally the brainchild of writer-directors James Wan and Leigh Whannell, the Saw _franchise follows the grisly, graphic murders of a serial killer known as Jigsaw and the intense investigation to hunt and capture him. In a statement to Variety announcing the planned reboot to the franchise and his involvement in it, Rock said, _“I’ve been a fan of Saw since the first film in 2004. I am excited by the opportunity to take this to a really intense and twisted new place._” _This new installment will breathe new life into the franchise, which enjoyed massive success during the early 2000s but saw declining interest from audiences the deeper it got into its story and lore with every installment.

Rock’s _Saw_reboot is now officially titled _Spiral: From the Book of Saw_– which doesn’t give much away as to what viewers can expect from the forthcoming film. Here are all the other details we know about the ninth _Saw_film so far.
Spiral: From the Book of Saw, Chris Rock’s _Saw_reboot, has had trouble nailing down a release date. The film was originally slated for October 23, 2020, then later moved forward to May 15, 2020, due to what many believe was fear of facing off with Halloween Kills at the box office. Unfortunately, _Saw 9_became one of the many summer 2020 to lose its release date due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and is now set for release on May 21, 2021.
Rock was a central figure in the Saw _reboot’s development and production, which wrapped on August 28, 2019. The comedic actor, who’s already taking a big, exciting risk by moving into horror, also has “story by” and executive producer credits on _Spiral. Rock will play the film’s lead, Zeke, a detective who’s investigating a string of gory murders. There’s nothing quite like this leading role in a Saw _reboot in Rock’s 30-plus year career. He’s done serious or, at minimum, straighter, less blatantly comedic roles in the past, such as 1991’s _New Jack City _or 2014’s _Top Five. But horror is totally new territory for Rock, who’s said _Saw 9_will feature some comedy, but still focus on giving franchise fans what they want. It would definitely be interesting to see Rock commit to playing Zeke completely straight – a big switch to help usher in a new era of Saw.
It’s still unclear whether the _Saw _reboot will have any firm connections to the rest of the franchise, outside of taking place later on in the same universe. Of course, there’s a connection in the shared _Saw _name, but its place in the overall continuity isn’t confirmed. There’s also no word on if the original Jigsaw character, John Kramer, is set to return, although considering how stretched out his post-death plans already were, that may not be the best route.
So far, no actors from the original franchise have been linked to the Saw _reboot, not even Tobin “Jigsaw” Bell. This will clear a path for an entirely new lineup to enter into this grisly, terrifying world. In addition to Chris Rock, Samuel L. Jackson, Max Minghella _(The Social Network),_ Marisol Nichols (Riverdale), Morgan David Jones (Supernatural) Frank Licari _(BlueBloods),_and John Tokatlidis (_Assassins Creed Odyssey) have all been added to the _Saw _reboot cast. Jackson will play Marcus, the father of Rock’s character. Minghella plays William Schenk, Zeke’s partner, and Licari his brother, Charlie. Nichols will play Captain Angie Garcia, the head honcho overseeing Zeke and William’s investigation. Jones plays Officer Barrett and Tokatlidis is a man named Burns, although nothing is known about their positions in the plot.
The Saw _reboot has secured Darren Lynn Bousman to direct. In the past, Bousman directed three _Saw _films: _Saw II (2005), Saw III(2006), and Saw IV(2007). Additionally, Bousman co-wrote the Saw II _script with Leigh Whannell. Bousman’s proximity to the _Saw _franchise makes him arguably the best choice to take on a new _Saw _film. He’s been so integral to their continued success already and understands what it will take to make a new installment worthy of being added into the _Saw _canon. It also doesn’t hurt that Bousman is a seasoned horror director away from Billy the Puppet, having directed films like Repo! The Genetic Opera and a remake of the classic chiller _Mother_‘s Day _throughout his 20-year career.
The story of the _Saw_reboot primarily follow Chris Rock’s character, Zeke, as he investigates a string of Jigsaw-like murders targeting cops. That’s somewhat similar to the original movie, which stayed (for the most part) in one room where two men, Lawrence (Cary Elwes) and Adam (Leigh Whannell) were trapped and forced to find a way to free themselves, while Detective David Tapp (Danny Glover) tried to find the men as well as the killer. Beyond that, the contents of the script – written by _Jigsaw_‘s Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg – are largely unknown.
The first trailer for Spiral: From the Book of Saw_was released on February 5, 2020. It shows off Rock’s lead performance, which does seem to be played straight so far. With the _Saw reboot currently being without a release date though, one wonders when fans will finally get more footage to look at. At least the movie managed to fit in Sam Jackson saying “mother****er,” something always appreciated.

Critic Reviews

Area Xbox - Kevin Arbelo - Spanish - 6 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is the new game of Mojang and Double Eleven. This new game brings the Minecraft franchise to the universe of dungeons crawler
Areajugones - Víctor Rodríguez - Spanish - 5.5 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a game that doesn't live up to expectations. Despite being funny, it's way too small and unpolished to be the next game in the Minecraft series. Playing through the whole game leaves us with the feeling that this is just a prototype rather than the full ARPG game that fans were expecting.
Ars Technica - Sam Machkovech - Unscored
It's priced right for a clever, family-friendly alternative to Diablo. If you're looking for a new co-op game, buy.
AusGamers - Kosta Andreadis - 6 / 10
An entry level take on a well-worn genre that after a few hours will have you heading for the exit.
COGconnected - James Paley - 75 / 100
Minecraft Dungeons isn’t the finest ARPG I’ve ever picked up, but it’s a terrific first step in your journey.
Cerealkillerz - Manuel Barthes - German - 8.1 / 10
Despite being just a spin-off, Minecraft Dungeons doesn't need to hide behind its big brother. With great Dungeon Crawler elements you fight through a hero story with a lot of charm. The low entry price also lets you forget about some of the shortcomings of the game.
Cheat Code Central - Lucas White - 4 / 5
Minecraft Dungeons won’t do much for you if you’re looking for a new, true blue dungeon crawler. But if you have a little one to tag along on your expeditions, this is an accessible, cheerful, and polished romp perfect for extra bonding time.
Destructoid - Chris Carter - 8 / 10
Although Minecraft Dungeons might not have the depth that a lot of hardcore dungeon crawler fans are looking for, it's an easy game to pick up and play at pretty much any point: solo or otherwise. Minecraft has proven itself to be quite the enduring and endearing IP over the past decade, and Dungeons is now partially responsible for that legacy.
DualShockers - Michael Ruiz - 8 / 10
Diablo for all ages.
Echo Boomer - David Fialho - Portuguese - Liked
More action, less construction, all fun. At least until things get a little repetitive.
Eurogamer - Tom Phillips - No Recommendation / Blank
You can build anything in Minecraft, something this fun dungeon-crawler from Mojang ably proves.
GRYOnline.pl - Patryk Manelski - Polish - 7.5 / 10
Minecraft: Dungeons stole 10 hours of my life, but it only took half of that to finish the game. When the difficulty level rises and Creepers multiply, the game becomes very enjoyable. However, to truly appreciate this game, you have to play it with someone. If you have a trusty team and love pixels – the game will be worth your time.
Game Informer - Jeff Cork - 7 / 10
The first few hours are a treat, and the late game has a nice element of experimentation. Unfortunately, its flaws balloon during the lengthy middle stretch.
GameSkinny - Jason D'Aprile - 7 / 10 stars
Minecraft Dungeons offers a very Diablo-like dungeon-crawling experience without the gore and grimdark atmosphere.
GameSpew - Kim Snaith - 8 / 10
Considering the game’s asking price, Minecraft Dungeons should be a must-buy for anyone who enjoys a good dungeon-crawling adventure.
GameSpot - Steve Watts - 7 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a welcoming dungeon-crawler entry point for newcomers and a lighthearted throwback for veterans.
Gameblog - Gianni Molinaro - French - 7 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons can be considered as a good way, for kids, to try a dungeon-crawler. Very cute, very simple, efficient, that game just lacks some depth and tasks that would urge players to keep on playing after finishing the, quite short, main campaign.
Gamerheadquarters - Jason Stettner - 8.5 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a great dungeon crawling experience offering lots of replayability, and many unique touches that stay true to the franchise.
Gamers Heroes - Blaine Smith - 80 / 100
Minecraft Dungeons is a dungeon-crawling adventure that promises a lot of fun for gamers young and old alike. While its replay value may wane with time, a constantly growing progression system and its various difficulty settings offer a lot for those less affected by the repetition.
GamesRadar+ - Alex Avard - 3.5 / 5 stars
Mojang's smartly streamlined dungeon crawler makes for a more accessible alternative in the action RPG space.
GamingBolt - Matt Bianucci - 8 / 10
Despite a shallow loot system, Minecraft Dungeons crafts an enjoyable and relaxing dungeon crawling experience that offers something for both fans of the series and fans of the genre.
God is a Geek - Mick Fraser - 6.5 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons has heaps of potential, and in a year's time it may be a very different beast. But right now I can't shake the notion that this is a squandered opportunity.
GotGame - Josh Boykin - 7.5 / 10
Even with these issues though, I enjoy Minecraft Dungeons. I’ll likely put more time in with it between playing heavier, story-based titles, but I’m compelled by its gameplay. The combat is fun and light, and perhaps the Apocalypse Mode will carry more of the awesome loot I seek. Also, at a $20 price point, it has plenty of action for the entry cost.
Guardian - Keith Stuart - 4 / 5 stars
This retro-tinged hack-and-slash spinoff has plenty of Mojang character and humour
Hardcore Gamer - James Cunningham - 3.5 / 5
Minecraft Dungeons is a capable all-ages dungeon crawl that, while doesn't use its license to anything like its full potential (see Dragon Quest Builders 2 for how to do it right), is still good fun once it gets moving.
IGN - Seth G. Macy - 7 / 10
Simple and fun to play, Minecraft Dungeons is a good entry-level dungeon crawler, but it doesn't dig too deep.
IGN Italy - Italian - 7 / 10
It's funny, engaging and, at times, surprisingly challenging: Minecraft Dungeons only lacks a bit of depth in the end-game area, and we hope to see that added in the next months.
Impulsegamer - Andrew Bistak - 3.8 / 5 stars
Minecraft Dungeons is the perfect distraction and while it doesn't offer much in terms of originality, it's an enjoyable block… err… hack 'n slash game set the wonderful backdrop of Minecraft in this family friendly version of Diablo with good gameplay, graphics and audio to help get you lost in pure entertainment. It's also a game that is played better with friends so if you need some mindless entertainment, check out Minecraft Dungeons!
Marooners' Rock - Andrew Peggs - 8.7 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons may only take a few hours to beat if you’re set on grinding the levels on solo play. The local and online co-op play is where replay value is added. Minecraft Dungeons is a must-have addition to your game collection and great for the whole family.
Metro GameCentral - 7 / 10
A modern day alternative to Gauntlet, whose innate shallowness and overreliance on random generation is balanced out by some fun combat and great co-op action.
New Game Network - Alex Varankou - 70 / 100
Minecraft Dungeons is a straightforward action RPG spinoff that doesn't try to be anything more than an accessible entry for existing fans of the franchise. The low asking price helps offset the areas where the game comes up short.
Nintendo Enthusiast - Steven Rollins - 8 / 10
All in all, Minecraft Dungeons is a lot fun. Coming from more of a Diablo background, I wasn't sure how well the simplified mechanics would jive with me, but I was pleasantly surprised. Everything about Minecraft Dungeons, from the enemies to the environments to the increased emphasis on higher-quality items, oozes a charming Minecraft feel. A few minor performance issues hold it back slightly, but not enough to keep me from coming back for a lot more.
NintendoWorldReport - Neal Ronaghan - 7 / 10
While the overall brevity and lesser level diversity is disheartening, Minecraft Dungeons is an enjoyable experience. It's much harder to recommend as a solo player, but if you're able to hang out on the couch and knock out some creepers with a pal or head online and smash up mobs with a buddy, the weaker elements can wash away. I had a good time playing Minecraft Dungeons. I just wish there was a little more to it.
PC Gamer - Rachel Watts - 75 / 100
Minecraft Dungeons is a breezy dungeon crawler that reproduces Minecraft's playful attitude.
PC Invasion - Jason Rodriguez - 8 / 10
Even though the campaign might be short and the mechanics a tad bit shallow for an ARPG, Minecraft Dungeons still manages to dazzle at times with its unique charm. With online and local/couch co-op multiplayer, you can have a blast and enjoy your romps with this family-friendly offering.
PCGamesN - Ben Maxwell - 7 / 10
A stripped down Diablo that oozes charm and loot variety but is probably better suited to a younger audience.
Polygon - Ben Kuchera - Unscored
Microsoft and Mojang have created a game where you’re hitting endless minions and boss characters with all sorts of pointy weapons, but they did so in such a way that playing still feels creative, and freeing. That’s a very welcome magic trick from a series trying something this new, this confidently.
PowerUp! - Leo Stevenson - 9.3 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a must-play and uniquely perfect game for the strange times we find ourselves in.
Press Start - Ewan Roxburgh - 7.5 / 10
Bar a rather unexciting story, a little lack of nuance in the combat and a couple of misgiving regarding couch co-op, there is a hell of a lot to love and enjoy about Minecraft Dungeons. Rather miraculously, it's managed to pull off being both a game for all types of Minecraft fans and those seeking a challenging dungeon crawler. At launch, it's a little concise sure, but chasing that new loot means I'm not done with it yet, and likely won't be for a while still.
RPG Site - George Foster - 8 / 10
That’s Minecraft Dungeons in a nutshell though - what’s here is mostly fantastic, but what’s missing feels like it could have pushed it beyond greatness.
Rock, Paper, Shotgun - Nate Crowley - Unscored
It’s a robust piece of design that you could well consider a triumph, given just how many ways in which the concept of an ARPG based on a construction game phenomenon could have ended in disaster. And I’m confident in recommending it as worth its price to even the most jaded click-stabber, especially one with even a passing familiarity with Minecraft. But the fact it’s been executed so competently leaves me wishing the developers had been a bit more reckless, frankly.
Shacknews - Ozzie Mejia - 7 / 10
But, while the core Minecraft experience can be enjoyed alone, Minecraft Dungeons feels much more suited for a night with friends. So be sure to link up with a few partners, because it's dangerous to go alone.
Skill Up - Ralph Panebianco - Unscored
Minecraft Dungeons is...not great.
Spaziogames - Paolo Sirio - Italian - 7 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a fresh and fast-paced dungeon crawler experience, even though a little too tiny to appeal on the long run
Stevivor - Steve Wright - 6.5 / 10
We basically decided we’d keep playing through the three major difficulties, but really because it seems like some easy gamerscore rather than an activity we’re invested in.
TechRaptor - Austin Suther - 7.5 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a casual ARPG that's perfect for fans of the series. Although it has pretty visuals and a challenging late-game difficulty, the loot variety is disappointing and the game's overall replay value doesn't seem high.
The Games Machine - Daniele Dolce - Italian - 6.8 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a good entry point into the world of the hack & slash games tailored for a younger audience. Too bad the loot system is abysmal and there's no endgame whatsoever.
TheSixthAxis - Dominic Leighton - 8 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons could easily have been "My First Dungeon Crawler", but it's so much more than that. It does a great job of taking the genre's hooks – the waves of enemies, the pervasive drive for better loot – and making them palatable and approachable for a wide-ranging audience. It's perfect family gaming, but if you crank the difficulty up prepare for an epic beatdown, and the epic rewards to go with them.
TrueAchievements - Sean Carey - 4 / 5 stars
Minecraft Dungeons is a superb dungeon crawler with something for players of all ages.
TrustedReviews - Jade King - 3.5 / 5 stars
Minecraft Dungeons is a solid dungeon crawler that will work wonders with younger audiences taking their first step into the genre, although will leave experienced players wanting something more significant.
Twinfinite - Chris Jecks - 3.5 / 5
Minecraft Dungeons is undoubtedly entertaining, and despite all my gripes I find myself being pulled back in, drawn to take on ever-more difficult challenges as I grind toward better gear.
USgamer - Mike Williams - 3.5 / 5 stars
Mojang spins up its own take on the Diablo dungeon crawling formula. While it looks like it might be "Baby's First Diablo," Minecraft Dungeons has a good degree of challenge available for you and three friends. It's more focused on lowering barriers by streamlining the acquisition of loot, instead of miring you in pages of stats. There's a decent tail of playability with three levels of difficulty, but you'll have to look to potential post-launch content for the length of experience some dungeon crawling fans crave.
VG247 - Jeremy Peel - 3 / 5 stars
Like Diablo, this is a game designed for multiple playthroughs on increasing difficulties, but few players will feel compelled to return to a seam that’s all dried up after a single day’s exploration.
Video Chums - A.J. Maciejewski - 7.3 / 10
It may not be as expansive or inspire as much creativity as its namesake may lead you to believe but Minecraft Dungeons is certainly a solid and enjoyable isometric action game with character progression that'll keep you hooked.
Wccftech - Rosh Kelly - 7.6 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a bright and colourful dungeon crawler, with interesting enemies and fast, frantic combat. It doesn't bring anything new to the genre, and takes away quite a lot of its complexities, leaving us with a simple, accessible, unremarkable yet still fun game.
WellPlayed - Jordan Garcia - 5 / 10
Though it does a great job at making the isometric ARPG formula more accessible, Minecraft Dungeons ultimately falls short due to its shallow nature
Windows Central - Jez Corden - 4.5 / 5 stars
Minecraft Dungeons meat is in its satisfying combat and complex character-building opportunities, and in that, the game delivers by the truckload.
Worth Playing - Adam Pavlacka - 6 / 10
There is a lot of potential in Minecraft Dungeons (and there is already DLC being advertised for it), but in its current state, it feels like a first draft. If you already have a Game Pass subscription, check it out for some easy achievements, but if you're looking to scratch that dungeon crawler itch, there are better options out there right now.

2020.05.15 22:00 ModernJazz-2K20 A Beginner's Guide to the New Jazz Generation Jazzwise

This is a great place to start if you're not in tune with modern era jazz artists.

Theon Cross, Nubya Garcia, Joe Armon-Jones, Moses Boyd

SEED ENSEMBLE

Driftglass

Jazz re:freshed
Cassie Kinoshi (as), Miguel Gorodi, Sheila Maurice-Grey (t), Chelsea Carmichael (ts, f), Joe Bristow (tb), Theon Cross (tba), Joe Armon-Jones, Sarah Tandy (p, Fender Rhodes), Shirley Tetteh (g), Xana, Cherise Adams-Burnett, Mr. Ekow (v), Rio Kai (b) and Patrick Boyle (d)
Though Cassie Kinoshi is fully aware of 1960s American civil rights suites such as her alto icon Jackie McLean’s It’s Time!, they didn’t directly influence this debut, with its distinctly British roots and concerns. Perhaps the most concerted attempt so far at a major album from a generation of young London players more attuned to performing, Driftglass draws on Afrofuturism for its hopeful scope, our musical melting-pot for its sound, and Kinoshi’s classical studies for its structure.
Social engagement has again inspired ambitious black American music in these fractious, urgent times, but local racial oppression and liberation animate these songs. ‘The Darkies’ suggests post-war British films’ seedy, street-level jazz noir even as Debussy’s ‘The Golliwog’s Cakewalk’ threads through the tune, trailing both beauty and its title’s archaic presumptions. Poet Xana adds transcendent tower-block dreams in which, “my heart bursts out of my chest like a rocket/As I gather stars in my pocket”. Grenfell Tower’s stubborn symbol of murderous social schism stands accusingly at the record’s heart, as ‘Wake (for Grenfell)’ turns a Langston Hughes line into a mournful work-song chant, pointedly soured by Kinoshi’s tart alto tone.
The SEED Ensemble is another permutation of the London scene’s currently omnipresent players, and their individuality is crucially encouraged. Sarah Tandy splits keyboard duties with Joe Armon-Jones, but it’s her Rhodes’ glistening, slow flow which adds impressionistic colour, on ‘Mirrors’ especially. Lacking the obvious thematic baggage elsewhere, that tune floats free into its own atmosphere. Both the songs’ rigid overall structures and occasionally slack development hold Driftglass back from greatness. But Kinoshi’s debut bursts with often achieved ambition, and time is on her side.

Nubya Garcia (ts, f), Sheila Maurice-Grey (t), Cassie Kinoshi (as), Rosie Turton (tb), Shirley Tetteh (g), Rio Kai (b) and Lizy Exell (d)
This long-awaited debut album from one of the most exciting young groups on the UK scene sounds like classic Blue Note with a contemporary London twist. On ‘Riverfest’, ‘Partner Girlfriend Lover’ and ‘Unbound’ strong melodies, richly-scored for the horns, and clever orchestral touches meet bustling grooves stitched with the distinctive silvery lines and creative chord-work of guitarist Shirley Tetteh.
‘Last Straw’ brings funk-rock grit and a bracing solo from trumpeter Sheila MauriceGrey (you could hear it in a 1970s detective movie or the soundtrack to Don Cheadle’s Miles Ahead). And Cassie Kinoshi’s ‘EU (Emotionally Unavailable)’ goes hard, leaving acres of space for the rhythm section who lay down a loose, grungy groove while Kinoshi’s alto spits anguished fire. Later on they shout out hip-hop as Nubya Garcia’s flute whirls through a cloud of effects. The title-track – all ethereal vocals and fluttering guitar – is split in two and returns at the very end. It’s a blissful conclusion to an excellent debut. Thomas Rees

MAISHA

There Is A Place

Brownswood
Jake Long (d), Nubya Garcia (ts, f), Amané Suganami (p, wurlitzer), Shirley Tetteh (g), Twm Dylan (b), Tim Doyle (perc), Yahael Camara-Onono (perc), Axel Kaner-Lindstrom (t), Johanna Burnheart, Barbara Bartz (vn), Tom Oldfield (clo), Madi Aafke Luimstra (vla) and Maria Zofia Osuchowska (hp)
Maisha brings together some of the stars of the young London jazz scene under the leadership of drummer and composer Jake Long. There Is A Place is their debut album and it’s one hell of an opening statement – echoing the work of spiritual jazz greats, including Pharoah Sanders and Alice Coltrane, and working in the infectious rhythms of West Africa.
‘Osiris’ is a dazzling start – a sonic Big Bang that unleashes the album’s lush, richly-textured soundworld. ‘Azure’ and the title-track evoke the tranquility of a Japanese garden, with Garcia adding wisps of flute; while ‘Eaglehurst/The Palace’ and ‘Kaa’ are swaggering and edgy. Here the band’s percussionists and the ticking guitar riffs and jabbing chord work of Shirley Tetteh come to the fore – bringing insinuations of Afro-beat, highlife and funk.
Long has also written some superb arrangements for a guest chamber ensemble, which make the album sound vast. The strings add folky sighs and shimmering clouds of dissonant notes, building beneath the soloists and carrying them higher. There will be inevitable comparisons with Kamasi Washington. Personally, I find Long’s writing more interesting and every bit as cosmic. One of my albums of the year. Thomas Rees

THE COMET IS COMING

Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery

Impulse!
Shabaka Hutchings (s), Dan Leavers (ky, syn) and Max Hallett (d)
The Comet Is Coming’s name alludes to apocalypse and a sense of human proportion in the cosmos, diving into religious and scientific concepts of end-times and rebirth. This second album confirms UK jazz’s pop culture resurrection while they’re at it. Where Sons of Kemet add Afro-Caribbean roots and ritual to current London music, Shabaka Hutchings helps reach for future visions here.
Updating spiritual jazz for a sci-fi age, Dan Leavers’ east London studio was fully utilised in his and Max Hallett’s flowing, precise production. But though Blade Runner’s soundtrack sometimes inspires Leavers’ synth glides, this is human, not cyborg, music. Big bang-expansive, relentless and restless, with Hutchings’ sax an attacking, integrated element in a bigger sonic picture, it could be played at a rave or place of worship, festival field or urban club. During ‘Blood of the Past’, a clearing appears for poet-rapper Kate Tempest to plead for, “a more soulful connection to land, and to lovers”; “Unable to listen, we keep speaking,” she adds, in an incantation against denatured life which resolves into a climbing Hutchings cry, beats slamming as if into soil.
The dance-floor transcendence of ‘Super Zodiac’ features some of Hutchings’ most exciting playing, his dancer’s feint into its final climactic seconds sending the whole album over the edge. Offering off-beat grime accents elsewhere, Hallett is the Elvin Jones-like energy core of ‘The Universe Wakes Up’ as Hutchings ascends, untroubled, cruising between modal hyper-speed and free rawness, Coltrane rising into view like a lost star.

JOE ARMON-JONES

Turn To Clear View

Brownswood Recordings
Joe Armon-Jones (ky, syn), Moses Boyd, KwAkE BaSs (d), David Mrakpor, Mutale Chashi (b), Oscar Jerome (g), Nubya Garcia, James Mollison (ts), Dylan Jones (t), Asheber, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Jehst, Obongjayar and Luke Newman (v)
Fans of Ezra Collective and Nubya Garcia will be familiar with Joe Armon-Jones' soulful keyboard playing, but his second album also establishes him as a gifted composer and producer. Created in collaboration with Maxwell Owin, Turn To Clear View is a beautifully crafted journey through jazz-infused neo-soul, dub, Afro-beat, broken beat and hip-hop that feels like a wander through Armon-Jones’ record collection or a cult mixtape called something like ‘Sounds of London 2019’.
There are some big tunes here, among them ‘Yellow Dandelion’ (a standout feature for vocalist Georgia Anne Muldrow) and ‘Gnawa Sweet’, with its mellow horn lines and killer outro (bassist Mutale Chasi and drummer KwAkE BaSs really dig in). ‘Icy Roads (Stacked)’ is blurry and euphoric, ‘You Didn’t Care’ is a powerful tenor feature for Nubya Garcia and ‘The Leo & Aquarius’ is a neo-soul jam sandwiching a few choice verses from rapper Jehst.
It’s as much about the little details though: the electronic murmurs and snippets of endearingly mindless studio chat, spectral field recordings and blurred sax arpeggios (very To Pimp A Butterfly) that segue the tracks and give the whole thing such a wonderful sense of flow. Turn To Clear View is full of personality, which ties in nicely with the album’s message, hinted at in ‘Yellow Dandelion’ and confirmed by vocalist Obongjayar’s husky encouragement on the final track: “Be yourself”.

ASHLEY HENRY

Beautiful Vinyl Hunter

Sony
Ashley Henry (p, ky), Theo Croker, Keyon Harrold (t), Judi Jackson (v), Sparkz (rap), Daniel Casimir (b), Eddie Hick, Marijus Aleska (d), Artie Zaitz (g), Makaya McCraven (d), Binker Golding (ts) and Moses Boyd (d)
London pianist Ashley Henry has made significant steps forward over the last five years or so by holding down several invaluable gigs as a sideman with fine British and American bandleaders – Theo Croker, Keyon Harrold, Jean Toussaint among others – as well as developing his own music. This debut long player is very much a consolidation of his progress to date and the presence of the aforementioned as well as some of the young Turks of UK jazz – Binker & Moses, Daniel Casimir, Eddie Hick – makes this a transatlantic affair with a contemporary edge.
As he made clear on last year’s Easter EP, Henry is plugged into the populist source of black music and the marked hip-hop and soul sensibilities of the material reflect the inspiration drawn from the likes of Robert Glasper among others. A confident yet measured soloist, Henry is also a producer who is concerned with the challenge of both songwriting and beat-making, and some of the most accomplished pieces on the record see him balance these skills with guests such as Mancunian rapper Sparkz and London-based American vocalist Judi Jackson. An auspicious account-opener from a talented player whose commercial appeal does not come at the expense of his artistic integrity. Kevin Le Gendre

BINKER GOLDING

Abstractions Of Reality Past & Incredible Feathers

Gearbox
Binker Golding (ts), Joe Armon-Jones (p), Daniel Casimir (b) and Sam Jones (d)
Saxophonist Golding shows his versatility on an enjoyable set. This is a markedly different proposition to the duos formed with Moses Boyd and Elliot Galvin insofar as there is less abstraction in the material, and the additional resources of the quartet are deployed with suitable flair and restraint.
Mostly set at ambling mid-tempo, the tunes are all Golding originals that show the strength of the blues as an ongoing source of musical inspiration as the leader investigates its various related idioms, from 1960s hard bop to 1990s neo-soul, all the while retaining a strong composer’s signature. Themes are clearly mapped, sometimes with a dancing quarter-noted led character, sometimes with more wistful long tones, and Golding’s improvisations are well-paced developments that build steadily rather than rushing towards a crescendo, allowing effective input from a rhythm section whose cohesion has been honed through extensive work with artists such as Nubya Garcia.
The occasional forays into reggae-inflected territory also appeal, and if Sam Jones’ crackling rimshots are particularly resonant then the imprint of legendary engineer James Farber, who mixed this in New York after the session was done at Abbey Road, is worth noting. At its peak this album has some of the modernist gospel finesse of Billy Harper, but Golding asserts himself convincingly as a writer-player who has an appealing voice of his own. Kevin Le Gendre

THEON CROSS

Fyah

Gearbox
Theon Cross (tba), Nubya Garcia (ts), Moses Boyd (d), plus Wayne Francis (ts), Artie Zaitz (el g), Nathaniel Cross (tb) and Tim Doyle (perc)
Having built momentum with EPs, gigs and a gathering media storm, many of London’s new jazz generation are finally making their album debuts. Tubist Theon Cross has already made his name on LPs with Sons of Kemet – Fyah, though, helps define how a changing London is changing jazz.
The fat tuba squelch reverberating through the first seconds of ‘Accelerate’ is a statement of intent matched by the runaway, intricate momentum which follows, from a dream trio completed by Nubya Garcia and Moses Boyd. As dance music, this is funk turned inside-out, finding off-kilter rhythmic emphasis under grime’s influence.
Cross and Boyd are tireless, Blakey-esque engine rooms for the new beat, which they speak as a native tongue. ‘Panda Village’, meanwhile, uses synths to add a gleaming sheen, production technique no longer a shibboleth in UK jazz studios. As important as Cross’s borrowing from contemporary musical contexts are the elements he retains from jazz. ‘Letting Go’ is all whispered hi-hat hisses and subtle interweaving by Cross and Garcia. ‘CIYA’ is boppishly beautiful, like a lost Blue Note tune. Cross’s conversationally inviting solo, like the introspective quiet during ‘Letting Go’, offers individuality worth as much as the community this scene describes. Nick Hasted

DANIEL CASIMIR & TESS HIRST

These Days

Jazz Re:freshed
Daniel Casimir (b), Tess Hirst (v), Robert Mitchell (ky), Tobie Carpenter (g) and Olly Sarkar (d)
Tess Hirst’s words give barbed force to Daniel Casimir’s open-hearted music, which is grounded in hard bop while exploring a wider palette. Mingus’s dramatic litany of persecution, ‘Fables of Faubus’, is adapted to our own fearfully racist moment during ‘These Days’, while over brewing Blakey-esque drums, ‘What Did I Do’ digs into Hirst and Casimir’s home streets in London’s far west, where disrupting crime and change alienate, and the singer wonders “if the patient will survive the operation”.
A bluntly titled instrumental with added Hirst lyrics imminent, ‘They Come Over Here’, is spy-movie ominous, suggesting surveillance paranoia and the Specials’ haunted ska dancehalls with the serrated edge of Tobie Carpenter’s guitar, Casimir’s jittery bass and Jerry Dammers-like, cinematic piano. Guyanese-Briton John Agard’s rebel poetry also acerbically interjects, riding Windrush currents: “Me not no Oxford don/ Me a simple immigrant from Clapham Common... I don’t need no axe/to split up your syntax.” Instrumental or otherwise, this is another bulletin from a London scene engaged and unquiet about careless injustice. Nick Hasted

CAMILLA GEORGE

The People Could Fly

Ubuntu Music
Camilla George (as), Sarah Tandy (p, Fender Rhodes), Daniel Casimir (b, el b), Femi Koleoso, Winston Clifford (d), Omar Lye-Fook, Cherise Adams-Burnett (v), Shirley Tetteh (g) and Quentin Collins (t)
African folk tales of slavery and lost powers of flight sent Camilla George to sleep as a child in Nigeria. An enflamed imagination and restless nights must have followed, judging by spiritual jazz lullaby ‘Little Eight John’, in which Cherise Adams-Burnett warns of “raw head and bloody nose” from whatever awaits wakeful children in the unknown dark. George’s second album explores her nostalgic memories of these slavery-steeped stories.
Leading a band of peers in London’s new jazz scene, her alto playing is so sunnily optimistic that the shackles fall from her subjects, even before ‘The People Could Fly’ recalls myths of former freedom. Rattled chains introduce the sourer, knowing tone of George’s slow blues on ‘The Most Useful Slave’, followed by British soul elder Omar vocalising Curtis Mayfield’s lament for the slavery by other means of America’s drugs apocalypse, ‘Here But I’m Gone’. But George’s warmly liberated character dominates. As so often with this group of players, it’s remarkable how traditional she is on several hard-bop solos. It’s the soft power of an open heart and mind which keeps her music present-tense. Daniel Casimir’s limber funk bass and Shirley Tetteh’s sometimes Afro-funk-inflected, bubbling guitar prove the scene’s subtle variety, and their own worth as versatile, Most Valued Players.
The incubation of George’s talent in Gary Crosby’s Tomorrow’s Warriors, Courtney Pine’s Venus Warriors and Jazz Jamaica shows how determinedly British jazz’s black elders are passing torches. Flowering in a new generation, this is the sound of a woman who has already overcome. Nick Hasted

2020.03.29 19:22 BegoniaInBloom [Saturday Social Media Summary Extravaganza] – 29 March 2020 (on a Sunday)

Hello and welcome. With no racing you'd think that riders' social media would be rather quiet, wouldn't you? That's what fewfiet and I thought too.... but this week we bring you the biggest edition of SSMSE yet.
Kiel Reijnen did an AMA over on the /TrekBikes subreddit on Friday, it's here if you missed it.
RIDER NEWS
More birthdays than usual this week for some reason.
Dani Rowe had a special announcement on Mother's Day
JJ Rojas remembered his late brother Mariano at the 1995 Tour, and rather poigniantly modelled his ONCE jersey
Diego Ulissi posted a sweet picture of his new baby daughter with her older sister
FOOTBALL CHALLENGE
Loads of riders took part in this game of keepy-uppy using toilet rolls (and hopefully kept them to use). Luis Leon Sanchez's professional footballer brother Pedro Leon started them off, and then the floodgates opened.
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
With tons of time on their hands, lots of riders are talking live on Instagram for our entertainment.
GCN Italia's Alan Marangoni is going to be as fit as when he was racing if the quarantine lasts much longer, because he's been training as well as chatting. Here he is with Daniel Oss and with Filippo Ganna (who was on his TT bike) – but he's been doing it almost every day so far.
Luis Angel Mate and Juan Pedro Lopez often train together in Andalucia – this time they had to meet virtually to train and to celebrate Mate's birthday
Luckily for us, there have been plenty of written Q&A sessions.
And several riders tackled questions on their Instagram stories
Tadej Pogacar
Nicolas Roche
Lorena Wiebes
TRAINING AT HOME
Bodyweight exercises are usually done using your OWN bodyweight, right? Nope. Use your partner, child or dog, it's much more fun.
Back to solo training
Vincenzo Nibali rode Milan Sanremo at home – right in front of that trophy cabinet he invited Primoz Roglic round to see last year
So did Davide Martinelli – and he showed us as he arrived at the Poggio on his Garmin for good measure
Michal Kwiatkowski remembered his win in 2017 – and the aftermath
TRAINING OUTSIDE
In some places riders are still choosing to ride outdoors.
HOME COOKING
With all that spare time, more riders than ever are in the kitchen.
With all this kitchen activity, not many riders were buying their food.
KEEPING BUSY
No riding in this section. New hobbies and ways to pass the time (in no particular order).
RIDES ON ZWIFT
QUARANTINE LIFE
Lots of riders passed the time with various challenges, including a one to post childhood photos.
That's all for this week, so goodbye until the next time and remember to keep positive!

2020.02.25 23:00 vo-sports #18 - Los Angeles Angels : Mike Trout, His Best Bud Anthony, The Japanese Foreign Exchange Student, and Friends

30) Detroit Tigers
29) Baltimore Orioles
28) Seattle Mariners
27) San Francisco Giants
26) Kansas City Royals
25) Miami Marlins
24) Pittsburgh Pirates
23) Colorado Rockies
22) Texas Rangers
21) Toronto Blue Jays
20) San Diego Padres
19) Chicago White Sox
18) Los Angeles Angels
When you think of the Los Angeles Angels you think Mike Trout. Mike Trout is an insanely great player as we all know. He won his 3rd AL MVP award last season and is an easy choice to possibly win his 4th in 2020. He’s so good to the point that most casual fans could probably not name a teammate of his besides Albert Pujols and Shohei Ohtani (I feel Ohtani’s media attention fell off a bit this year). But now he has a partner in crime in Anthony Rendon, and also a still weak pitching staff. But the Angels have Rendon now who’ll add a lot to their lineup.
2019 Record : 72-90, Top Player : Mike Trout 8.6 fWAR
2018 Record : 80-82, Top Player : Mike Trout 9.8 fWAR
2017 Record : 80-82, Top Player : Mike Trout 6.8 fWAR
Subtractions - Kole Calhoun, Kean Wong, Luis Garcia, Justin Bour, Trevor Cahill, Kevan Smith, Isaac Mattson, Kyle Bradish, Kyle Brnovich, Zach Peek, Zack Cozart, Will Wilson, Jose Estrada, Adalberto Mejia, Jake Jewell, Jeremy Beasley, Luis Madero
Additions - Jesus Ortega, Parker Markell, Mike Mayers, Isaias Falcon, Hoby Milner, Arismendy Alcantara, Dylan Bundy, Garrett Williams, Anthony Rendon, Jake Thompson, Julio Teheran, Neil Ramirez, Jacob Barnes, Elliot Soto, Kyle Keller, Jason Castro, Matt Andriese, Jose Quijada, Michael Kohn, Luis Aviles Jr, Joey Curletta
Top Prospects - Jo Adell, Brandon Marsh, Jordyn Adams, Jeremiah Jackson, Jahmai Jones, D’Shawn Knowles, Patrick Sandoval, Jose Soriano, Kyren Paris, Alexander Ramirez
Players on Personal Top 10 Positional - Tommy La Stella (7th 2B), Anthony Rendon (2nd 3B), Andrelton Simmons (8th SS), Mike Trout (1st CF), Shohei Ohtani (5th DH)
The Rotation
If anything is going to hurt the Angels this season it’s definitely pitching. Their rotation is mediocre at best besides Shohei Ohtani but he isn’t expected to pitch until May so for over a month they likely won’t have anything special in the rotation. Arguably their best starter besides Ohtani is Andrew Heaney who in 95.1 IP had a 4.91 ERA but was a bit unlucky with his 4.18 xFIP. Then Julio Teheran who did have an appealing 3.81 ERA was the opposite with Heaney with luck having a 5.26 xFIP. Then also Dylan Bundy with a 4.79 ERA and 4.58 xFIP. All three would be decent 4-5 guys but none of them should be 1-2 at all.
For the rest of the bullpen, Matt Andriese potentially could be good since the last two seasons he’s gotten quite unlucky. He was mediocre in 2019 with a 4.71 ERA but also had a 3.88 xFIP. 23 year old Griffin Canning was also mediocre in 2019 in his rookie season with a 4.58 ERA and 4.75 xFIP in 90.1 IP. Two other possible options could be 23 year olds Jaime Barria and Patrick Sandoval. Both weren’t that good in 2019 but both as said are 23 and could get better. Sandoval especially since in 39.1 IP he got a bit unlucky with his 5.03 ERA and 4.02 xFIP.
The Bullpen
Then the bullpen. Easily their best reliever was Hansel Robles. He broke out in 2019 with a 2.48 ERA and 3.98 xFIP and even got 23 saves. He is more than deserving of the closer spot in a weak Angels bullpen although hopefully his ERA stays the same due to his luckiness. Ty Buttery wasn’t bad in 2019 with a 3.98 ERA and 3.90 xFIP in 72.1 IP and could be a good setup man. Cam Bedrosian also wasn’t bad either with a 3.23 ERA and like Robles was lucky with his 4.17 xFIP. Kenyan Middleton who’s only pitched in 25.1 innings has been quite lucky in 2019 and 2018 but in 2017 he had a 3.86 ERA and 4.00 xFIP. Noe Ramirez like Bedrosian and Buttery was also, not bad. Not great obviously but a 3.99 ERA and 4.07 xFIP is more than serviceable.
The rest however, stinks. Justin Anderson who is expected to be in their bullpen may start the season on the IL, although with his 5.55 ERA and 4.80 xFIP in 2019 that won’t be that big of a blow if at all. Ryan Buchter is an option, even though he had a 2.98 ERA in 2019, he got extremely lucky with a 5.08 xFIP. Mike Mayers after a ok 2018 struggled in 2019 with 19 IP and 6.63 ERA. Taylor Cole struggled with a 5.92 ERA but was unlucky with a 4.10 xFIP. They also could possibly put Matt Andriese in the bullpen. There are many other options for the Angels but that is just some of the not really strong bunch.
The Lineup
We all know who the best hitter on the Angels is. Mike Trout as we all know may end up being the greatest player ever. At age 28 he has a career 73.4 fWAR, 285 home runs, 1324 hits, 3 MVPs, 7 top 2 MVP voting finishes (+1 4th in 2017), 200 stolen bases, and a $426.5M contract. What else is there to say other than this guy is better than just a ‘generational talent’. As long as he doesn’t get any career threatening injury this guy will be great for many more years. Hopefully the Angels don’t continue to waste his career now that they have guys like Anthony Rendon and the up and coming Jo Adell.
Speaking of Anthony Rendon, he is also very good at baseball. The Angels decide to add another massive contract to their payroll by giving Rendon an AAV of $35M for 7 years. He definitely deserved a big contract (maybe not $35M AAV level big) after he helped Washington win their first World Series. Even though he’s been great before 2019, his name finally became big this season. In 2019 he had a 7.0 fWAR, 154 wRC+, .413 wOBA, and a 1.010 OPS. Obviously not as good as Trout but he’s still a hell of a player that’ll provide support to the Angels possibly playoff push.
Then the rest of the lineup. Their catcher is Jason Castro who isn’t the worst option with his average offense and defense. He had a 103 wRC+ and a 6.7 Fangraphs defensive index which are both not bad. Then first base, the slow aging body of the formerly great 1B Albert Pujols has become terrible. It sucks to see a legend like Pujols become this but since he is now 40 years old, it was bound to come. In 2019 he had a -0.4 fWAR and he hasn’t had a positive fWAR since 2016 (0.8 fWAR in 650 PAs). But 2B is quite good for them. Tommy La Stella who was All-Star bound was having a great breakout season until getting a tibia injury. Although he’ll be a very good piece if he can repeat his 2019 where he had a 122 wRC+ and 2.0 fWAR in 321 PAs. Although if La Stella struggles or gets injured David Fletcher will be a good replacement with his above average defense and ok bat (contact heavy). Then the defensive god and upcoming free agent Andrelton Simmons. He hasn’t slowed down defensively but after two good offensive seasons from him in 2017-18, he fell off in 2019 with a 81 wRC+ (down from 108 2018 and 102 2017) and 1.7 fWAR in 424 PAs (5.4 in 600 2018, 5.0 in 647 2019). Then Justin Upton who struggled in 2019 before ending his season due to injury and Brian Goodwin who was decent in 2019. This can be both a good or bad thing, probably better, but neither put up numbers good enough to push the time for Jo Adell back.
Then DH/SP Shohei Ohtani. Easily the Angels 3rd best hitter wasn’t as good as his 151 wRC+ rookie campaign although he was still good with a 123 wRC+. Now that he’ll be able to pitch again it’ll be a bit odd for Joe Maddon to set this team up. Albert Pujols likely will be the DH then Jared Walsh or Matt Thaiss could 1B. But the better option I feel would be move La Stella to 1B and put Fletcher at 2B even though Maddon said he wasn’t considering La Stella at 1B. This’ll be a much more important question in May.
What to Look Forward To
Summary
The Angels are quite top heavy as always. Although their lineup isn’t the worst, even if they have two of the best players in the world doesn’t mean they’ll make the playoffs. Their rotation is average at best along with not the greatest of bullpens either. Plus they don’t really have that good of a farm system so they need to win now and being that they’re in the AL West with the Astros and Athletics who are both better and the Rangers who have a great rotation and the Mariners who have a bunch of young studs making the big leagues in Evan White, Shed Long, and others, this won’t be an easy season for the Angels. I think it’ll be another season of wasting the greatest player in our generation but I hope I’m wrong.
2020 Prediction - 80-82 (.494, 3rd in ALW), Top Player Mike Trout

2020.02.20 06:49 ND_PC The r/MtvChallenge Fantasy Tournament: Redemption House - Day 24 (REDEMPTION HOUSE FINALS)

Greetings, losers and winners alike! Welcome to the last day of user competition for this off-season. It’s a big day. Let me set the stage: In early December, sixty-four teams drafted four players each in the hopes of becoming the inaugural MtvChallenge fantasy tournament champion. For the last seven weeks, teams have battled head-to-head on a series of randomized finals. Some teams have eked by in their matches, others have routed their opponents, and still others have been on nauseating, topsy-turvy rides through the main bracket, down to the redemption house, and back up through redemption. Now (or, in a few moments after I announce the results of yesterday’s matches), we are left with our four last losers: two from the Real World bracket, and two from the Road Rules bracket. Today, they will battle each other in the War of the Worlds 2 final to decide which team is the ruler of Redemption. We as voters have a great responsibility ahead of us; let us not take it lightly. So come one, come all, and help elect the first loser’s bracket champions in the history of the sub.
Before we get to the voting, let’s recap last night’s match-ups.
Real World Bracket
Wow, that’s a lot of votes. 255 friggen voters is an outstanding number! I believe it shatters the previous redemption house record, and it likely beats the highest count for the main bracket as well (until yesterday, at least). So congratulations to all the teams who competed yesterday!
Let’s see what we have here. Wow. u/drgibbons3323 ran away with this one. I personally thought Team Walnuts got robbed in their main bracket loss, so I’m glad they got a little revenge for that here. I mean, COME ON. Paulie, CJ, Paula, and Tori… how does one person get that team!? How does that team lose?! Here, in The Duel II Final, they showed their true power. Not even good guy Landon could overpower this team, and his ragtag team of Sylvia, Natalie Negrotti, and Adam Kuhn certainly wouldn’t hold a candle to their opponents this year.
The strength and endurance required here or in any final is best suited for Team Walnuts. To u/BCastle18, I’m really glad you got this far and you have an awesome team, but you ran into an unstoppable force today and that is no fault of yours. To u/drgibbons3323, congratulations, and good luck today!
Road Rules Bracket
CJ is the darling of the Redemption House, it would seem. He won the RW match by a ton, and he wins this RR match by a decent margin as well. While this wasn’t the rout that the first match proved to be, it was still a sizable victory for CJ and his angels, which include self-appointed Meathead Hippie Emily Schromm, me-appointed Fitness Icon Ashley Kelsey, and brother of a crazy person Mike Boise.
I do think this vote came down to the depth of the teams. I’ve said this before, not too long ago: as much as I love Da’Vonne, she lacks a certain amount of endurance that CJ’s Angels definitely have. If we were voting based on clapbacks, maybe the result would have been different. Instead, we were voting on the Free Agents final, and clapbacks weren’t a part of it (omg imagine if there was a final that included clapbacks. I’m actually pretty surprised that wasn’t the case back in the mid-2000s when the show "Yo Momma" was something MTV actively pushed and sought to grow.
Maybe we all voted for CJ because we secretly hope he’ll write us a love letter? I don’t know, and I don’t really care. That’s a valid reason to vote for someone in a contest like this, probably. So great! The point is that while “You Cannot Copy My Walk” is a great team name, a timeless moment, and a solid team, u/wade5554’s team just didn’t have what it took to shoot CJ’s Angels down from the heavens.
To u/wade5554, you should be proud of how far you made it, but this ends your time here on the MtvChallenge fantasy tournament. Take care of yourself. To u/phillyfly11, congratulations on reaching the finals of the Road Rules loser’s bracket! Good luck in your match today.
Now, only our ultimate task lies ahead: deciding who will be crowned the rulers of Redemption. What follows is the matchups. After all the teams are listed, you’ll read the War of the Worlds 2 Final description.

Real World Bracket
u/drgibbons3323 u/RohAnTheMaker, u/giogugenishvili
"Team Walnuts" "The Silent Assassins"
(4-1) (4-1)
Paulie Calafiore, War of the Worlds Alton Williams, The Gauntlet II
CJ Koegel, Battle of the Seasons (2012) Adam Larson, The Gauntlet II
Paula Meronek, Rivals II KellyAnne Judd, The Ruins
Tori Deal, War of the Worlds II Natalie "Ninja" Duran, War of the Worlds
Winner’s Logic
[u/drgibbons3323] “Team Walnuts”
  1. Paulie Calafiore – War of the Worlds I Stats: In Tribunal 6 out of 12 dailies ; Won first Challenge against all Vets ; Eliminated in Final Purge; Eliminated Kam and Ashley C in only elimination Summary: Paulie showed up and showed out throughout the first installment of the War of the Worlds. Placing in the top of 6 of the 12 dailies and controlling his own destiny throughout the season. He showed great bouts of cardio, puzzle solving, and food eating throughout his challenge history up to this point. Was eliminated in the final purge due to diving into the water headfirst and stunning himself, he was unable to complete what is normally a walk in the park and was eliminated prior to the final. Paulie is an awesome finals teammate if paired with the correct people, we saw what happened when Natalie ruined the first day for them in final reckoning. He excelled in all challenges throughout WOTW1 and was a finals threat (Turbo would have still won) but he has shown he is no slouch. He is determined to never quit even if his body would like him too. His puzzle solving is top of the line and he could carry any team in a puzzle checkpoint of a final to a sweet sweet victory.
  2. CJ Koegel – Battle of the Seasons 2 Stats: Won 2 of 6 dailies ; Beat roided out Zach in a Hall Brawl Elimination (Eliminated due to Jasmine being blanked) Summary: Lets be honest, CJ was never going to win battle of the seasons II with the teammates he was put with. But they still managed to win two daily challenges and he is one of the few to best Zach in anything physical. CJ was a physical specimen with the tenacity of a warrior who was unfortunately paired with a lackluster team in BOTS2. However, it was shown that he is an absolute team player and has the knowledge and strength to run a final. He is most known for besting Zach Nichols 3-2 in a Hall Brawl elimination (Winning the first round 2-0) when Zach was at his biggest by using extremely smart strategy to outsmart the behemoth who is no mental slouch himself. CJ deserved to be on more challenges after quitting after two challenges, he was not one for drama but in the right team would dominate in a final.
  3. Paula “Walnuts” “Iron Stomach” Meronek – Rivals II Stats: RIVALS II CHAMP; Won 6 out of 10 dailies; No eliminations this season Summary: Paula along with her partner Emily put together one of the most dominant seasons in Challenge history. Winning 6 out of the 10 dailies and only being in “trouble” to go to elimination by virtue of being voted in one time. But they managed to avoid elimination throughout the entire season. The Rivals II final consisted of Cardio, puzzles, eating disgusting dishes, strength, and more cardio. Paula and Emily fell behind early through the first two stages, but then the “Iron Stomach” showed everybody who deserved to win that final. She absolutely housed the eating portion of the final, and the rest is history. Paula and Emily went on to win Rivals II and Paula walked off into the sunset a 2-time champ. Paula was always known for being a finals threat. She wasn’t the greatest at eliminations but there was no true threat for her to be in an elimination throughout the entirety of Rivals 2. With her top of the line cardio, her insane eating prowess, and her determination of a champion, Paula is an ideal teammate to have in a final.
  4. Tori “The New Choo-Choo” Deal – War of the Worlds 2 Stats: Purged out in the puzzle portion of the final ; Won 9 out of 14 dailies ; 2 elimination wins Summary: CHOO CHOO! The Tori Train is on the tracks and is prepared to take down anyone in a final. With her incredible endurance throughout the season and unwavering confidence, anybody is lucky to have Tori on their team in a final. She absolutely housed anybody put in front of her and was known for being the first person to turncoat in WOTW2. She absolutely destroyed a physical specimen in Jenny West in a physical elimination. Her finals performance was one for the books until a stroke of genius from Dee and Rogan purged her out at the last minute. Team UK was destined for victory no matter who were the top 4 from that purge. Tori was known for having a god like endurance and relentless grit during WOTW2. She was highly regarded as the best female that was on the show with her cardio, swimming prowess, and overall above average intelligence. A puzzle did her in at the last possible second of the final but she showed that she was never going to quit and I am convinced she could have carried the gurney all 16 miles if needed. All in, she is one of the best overall females to compete throughout the Challenge history and she will come back to prove that.
[u/RohAnTheMaker, u/giogugenishvili] “The Silent Assassins”
  1. Alton Williams was an OG who competed on The Gauntlet, Gauntlet 2, Inferno 3 and Seasons 2. In his run of the Challenge, it was obvious that he had killer endurance, elite climbing skills, great agility, was a solid swimmer and good at puzzles. Really all that needs to be said is that he was capable of competing at a top level with almost anyone in almost any daily challenge in the show’s history. He also showed great leadership skills as well - capable of stepping up and leading a team. On Gauntlet 2, Alton won the initial Royal Rumble (where unlike the vet guys - the rookies actually competed) and became team Captain. He remained Captain throughout the entire show, going 3-0 in elimination (with arguably the greatest rope climb of all time against Adam K in Capture the Flag) and lead the rookie team to victory in the Final Challenge.
  2. Adam Larson is an OG competitor who participated in Seasons 1, The Gauntlet and Gauntlet 2. Although his time on the show was short, he always showed to be a popular figure amongst the group and could compete well in Challenges with good strength and endurance. Adam excelled on The Gauntlet, showing he could compete at a high level with many competitors we still consider elite today (Theo V, Abram, Darrell, Miz, Alton) and he won the overall season. He tied Theo Von with the most lifesavers won on the Road Rules team with 2 each and was a steady leadership presence on the male side the entire time.
  3. Considered one of the best to never win, KellyAnne Judd was the most feared woman on The Ruins and for good reason. Only on her second season, she had already made a name for herself by beating Rachel on The Island. Tall, strong, great swimmer and a great runner, KellyAnne did not get to show her full potential during the season for two reasons - 1. she had a terrible team, so they were losing the dailies all the time 2. the champion girls were terrified of going against her, even Susie, so they kept her out of the eliminations except when she defeated two champions in Evelyn and Veronica. She also did great in the finals and was close to pulling an upset win with Sarah over Johnny, Evan, Kenny, Derrick and Susie. Unfortunately, we only got two seasons of prime KA, but those two seasons are enough to show that she would beast any final with the right team.
  4. “Ninja is the only woman to finish the hardest final in The Challenge history" is a line we have heard multiple times. However, Ninja's impressive rookie run goes beyond that sentence. In the first episode, she is the first female rookie to finish the challenge/puzzle. She then goes to win 4 dailies before reaching the final. Her finals performance is still the biggest highlight, She outpaces every other woman, including Cara, has to do extra running than others by being thrown in a surprise elimination with the defending champ and overall, manages to keep up with her male competitors. Ninja is not a perfect player and WotW1 did not test all her skills. She might not be a good swimmer or great at communication, but her cardio and endurance skills are some of the best of all time. She has also proven herself multiple times at puzzles and her real-life profession as a rock climber means she is well suited for many finals. She is also someone who enjoys the challenges and the carnival game aspect of them and while she might become defensive when she does not gel with her teammates, we believe that in a team of calm positive competitors, a.k.a. Silent Assassins, she would not face that issue.

Road Rules Bracket
u/phillyfly11 u/hkotila
“CJ’s Angels” “Satan’s Asshole”
(5-1) (5-1)
Emily Schromm, Rivals II Chris “CT” Tamburello, Rivals
Ashley Kelsey, Invasion of the Champions Dan Setzler, Battle of the Sexes II
CJ Koegel, Battle of the Seasons (2012) Amanda Garcia, Final Reckoning
Mike Boise, Battle of the Bloodlines Mattie Lynn Breaux, War of the Worlds
Winner’s Logic
[u/phillyfly11] “CJ’s Angels”
  1. Emily Schromm, Rivals 2: In the wise words of the Godfather Mark Long, “She competes like a dude.” The most physically fit female competitor ,Emily dominated Rivals 2 with 6 daily wins en route to winning the season.
  2. Ashley Kelsey, Invasions: I chose this version of Ashley because she was in better physical shape and has running and winning a final experience and a great team player.
  3. CJ Koegel, Battle of the Seasons 2: Was the Leader of Team Cancun that won 2 dailies and was a part of the major alliance. He proved his ability to think on his feet and his physical strength by defeating Roided up Zach in his HALL BRAWL heat.
  4. Mike Boise, Bloodlines: One of the top performers the entire season, he proved that he wasn’t afraid of any task, asking multiple times to get thrown into elimination and that he has a killer mindset during competition."
[u/hkotila] “Satan’s Asshole”
  1. CT: CHOO CHOO
  2. Dan: One of the top two performing males on this season which included Mark Long, Abe, The Miz, Derrick, and Brad... Also: https://medium.com/@shmalvey7/the-greatest-male-players-in-challenge-history-17-dan-setzler-75b8100f98a1
  3. Amanda: Solid at most aspects of the game, IMO probably the second-best puzzle solver to appear on the challenge.
  4. Mattie: Top 3 most physically imposing females to be cast behind Laural and Late career Emily. A lot of shit has been talked on here about her stamina. Just remember, wherever you have Mattie ranked on endurance Georgia needs to be behind her. Plus she ran like 16-20 miles on a sand dune and was keeping pace with Cara during that time. Most finals don't even have a course even close to as brutal as that final meaning she will do fine on every other final
Which of these teams deserves to be crowned The Challenge Fantasy Tournament’s Biggest Loser? You decide.
But wait! There’s more!
BONUS MATCH - Because it’s only fair that the last losers in each bracket get to compete, we are hosting a third-place match for the whole tournament. The runners up in the main bracket get to compete to see who will take home the bronze. While these teams don’t technically live in the redemption house, we’re glad they stopped by to visit just for today.

Fantasy Tournament Third Place Match
u/SweatySpaghetti94 u/cleanandburke
“Smash Your Team and Eat It”
(4-1) (4-1)
Wes Bergmann, Rivals II Derrick Kosinski, The Duel
Devin Walker, Vendettas MJ Garrett, The Gauntlet II
Georgia Harrison, War of the Worlds Aviv Melmed, Fresh Meat
Dee Nguyen, War of the Worlds II Tori Hall, Cutthroat
Winner’s Logic
[u/SweatySpaghetti94] - did not provide logic, so I will do so for them
  1. Wes Bergmann is currently moonlighting as a personable lumberjack. Once, he tricked Louise Hazel into thinking that he wasn’t good at running hurdles, but he was! That sly fox! He is one of the most politically savvy players in the game, and this user drafted him in his most physically dominant season. He knows how to mentor teammates, and he is great at getting deals done to even get to finals in the first place. His performance in finals will be as admirable as anybody’s, as he has the smarts, the strength, and the mental fortitude to handle any task.
  2. Devin Walker has an interesting personality. Without him, “TYB” would just be Cory and Nelson. He once followed Bananas around the house for no reason other than to harass him! Lovely! He actually defeated Bananas in a lite brite elimination that same season. Aside from that… he encouraged Cheyenne to piss herself when they ran a final together. So, you can bet he’s a good teammate! He is fairly fit, certainly smart, and has no glaring weaknesses, but I wouldn’t call him the strongest guy to ever do it, not by a longshot.
  3. Georgia Harrison has a cry face that’s made of nightmares. She is ridiculous at endurance, and she also has a lot of passion for competition, but she sometimes lets it get the better of her judgment (“It’s!! Sevennnnn!!!”). She had a showmance with Stephen Bear until he cheated on her with his cousin, at which point… their showmance continued. Georgia gassed out on the hardest final ever, but she had a really formidable rookie campaign on War of the Worlds, the season from which she’s competing today.
  4. Dee Nguyen is loyal to a fault, but she seems to think that’s a good thing. She came into her first Challenge season not knowing how to swim, but after Wes taught her she quickly became a well-rounded competitor. She fell in love with a stripper and then believed his constant lies, won a season with him, and now despises him as she should. She definitely gains power from anger and resentment, but she has also shown that she can use moral support as fuel as long as she has the right person coaching her through it.
[u/cleanandburke] “Smash Your Team and Eat It”
  1. Derrick K may not be the smartest but he’s smart enough to play to his strengths and let his team take over his weaknesses. He won’t win a puzzle but he doesn’t need to and will not get in Avivs way. He has strength endurance and is a team player. He’s strong enough to carry his weight plus more but is light enough that his weight wouldn’t hinder his other competitors. He has no issues with eating challenges or swimming
  2. Aviv Israeli military vet who is not afraid of a final She also is a puzzle master who helped Darrell win another final! Strength, endurance, brains. The whole package!
  3. Tori Hall 2/3 team challenge wins (3/4 if you include road rules) whether her teams “should” have won or not, she showed she has endurance for finals and is a solid competitor. Also has a lot of determination and heart!
  4. MJ University football athlete. Brain, brawn, endurance, no issues with eating challenges. A solid team player with no drama!
War of the Worlds 2 Final Description: Again, all three matches are competing in this final today. So base your votes off this description from… I’m not really sure who wrote this. I’ll just credit u/stayoutofthe-forest because they deserve to be credited for things they didn’t actually do as much as possible.

2020.02.18 06:31 ND_PC The r/MtvChallenge Fantasy Tournament: Redemption House - Day 22 (Semifinal #1)

Hey, losers! We’re already at the semifinals of the Redemption House! How could this be? It seems like just yesterday that u/HereToTalkTV and u/DurtyMurty11 were the first teams to be double-eliminated and go a very impressive 0-2. But, here we are, with a couple of 4-1 teams and a couple of 3-1 teams going at it in the penultimate round of the Redemption House, or as we who run the Redemption House like to call it, the Redemption House. So come one, come all, and come join us as losers continue to battle head-to-head to fight for redemption, overcoming embarrassing losses, terrifying finals, and (supposed) voter insanity. Things are really heating up, and by the end of the week, we’ll be able to crown MtvChallenge’s best losers! While there will be no re-entry into the Winner’s Bracket, one team (per bracket) will find itself the Ruler of Redemption.
Before we get to the voting, let’s recap last night’s fantasy match-ups.
Real World Bracket (written by the excellent u/ND-PC)
Match 1.0
This final was basically a triathlon + a row and a riddle. So like a weird pentathlon that nobody asked for. And although it was close, this marks the end of mod presence in the fantasy tournament. You know what that means, folks? No more rules! We can finally do whatever the heck we want without the fear of being moderated! u/BCastle18 is our savior! There’s no way this could possibly go wrong! Anarchy is the way to the truth! Fight the power!
Wait, what was I saying? Oh yeah, the mods are gone and I’m very sad to see the last of them depart this spectacular event. It takes good leadership to form a strong community, and I believe this subreddit is a hell of a strong community if there ever was one. We owe the mods a debt of gratitude for hosting events like this tournament, episode discussions, unpopular opinion threads, etc. all while trying to keep the sub free from spoilers, and succeeding. It’s thanks first and foremost to them that we all have this lovely internet playground.
Anyway, onto the topic at hand. In all likelihood, people probably assumed that Landon and Adam were more physically fit than Cohutta and Ace. Those people were right, so they made good assumptions. Couple that with the assumption that Sylvia and Natalie are in better shape than Evelyn and Ashley K, and you’d be batting .500, because that’s a terrible assumption. Much to the dispute of my post partner u/MandyMTV, I truly and wholeheartedly believe that Ashley K is a fitness icon. And, for crying out loud, Evelyn is Evelyn! In my mind, the strength of the women on team Adore Delano 2020 is enough to tip the scales their way, at least for the run and the bike.
Buuuut the row was done as a team, the riddle was done as a team, and the swim probably tips the scale back to u/BCastle18’s team (Sylvia is part fish, after all, and Landon and Adam >> Cohutta and Ace in the water), so I do understand how they come out on top. Still, though, QUEEN EVELYN DESERVED BETTER. Evelyn, if you’re reading this, pm me. My username is u/ND_PC and I love you.
All in all, it was a close match and both teams should be very proud of how far they’ve come. To u/honestkodaline and u/priorsloth, I congratulate you for getting this far but it ends your time here on the MtvChallenge fantasy tournament. Take care of yourselves. To u/BCastle18, congratulations on moving on to the Redemption House semifinals!
Match 2.0
CT is better than Derrick. Mike is better than Nehemiah. Everyone knows this and everyone agrees. Why are you booing me? I’m right. Yeah, we only got one season of Mike, and he’s basically a carbon copy of Abram with only 65% of the intensity, 60% of the suave, 40% of the competitive spirit and probably ~78% of the strength, but he’s just plain better than Nehemiah. Especially coupled with CT, Mike is a formidable competitor who has no obvious shortcomings. The pair of Nehemiah and Derrick, on the other hand, complement each other like applesauce and peanut butter. Go, try it, prove to me that you can eat those two things with any modicum of harmony inside you. You can’t. This is what Nehemiah and Derrick would be like if they were the only two guys on a team.
This final wasn’t a no-brainer, obviously, but it’s clear that CT and Mike would excel at the stretcher-carry, and Aviv would lift the team in the memory puzzle. On the other side of things, Amanda would contribute zero to a team that also had Derrick, Nehemiah, and Veronica. You see, the players on a team are supposed to complement one another’s skill sets. Amanda adds nothing to the team that isn’t already provided by her teammates. Her grating voice? Derrick already has one. Her puzzle/riddle smarts? Covered by Nehemiah. Her political savvy combined with her fit-girl bod? Veronica is already on the team! So Amanda is a total net zero here. I like Amanda as much as the next person - truly, I do - but I don’t see her gelling well with this team so much.
And then there’s Brittini Sherrod. She is the anti-Amanda. She, like her teammate Aviv, is a one-season wonder who could do no wrong. She was amazing with Landon as a partner and she was drop dead gorgeous. She was cast on the show after appearing on only two episodes of the Real World! What an icon. She had a great laugh and a loving smile, and I can just tell that her mere presence would be a confidence boost for her three teammates.
So, in short, while Amanda is coming up with some heinous excuses for why she can’t complete the simple tasks in front of her (like sorting wood per a pre-arranged pattern), the lovely foursome on Team Backpack would be happily galavanting from task to task in this final of whimsical miscellany.
So, congratulations to u/ry-guy2fly for moving on to the semifinals of the Redemption House! And to u/dolfan2354, we hope to see you again. You made it so far, and should absolutely be proud of what you’ve accomplished this off-season.
Road Rules Bracket - brought to you by u/MandyMTV who is alive and well, everyone! She’s not dead, she promises, just hungover. Please, bring her massive amounts of Pedialyte ASAP.
Match 1.0
u/phillyfly11’s ‘CJ’s Angels’ take this one, and everyone who voted for u/scyth13r’s team only voted for them because they confused Frank “So Boring I Make My TV Cry” Roessler with Frank Sweeney, the king of reality television. Frank is mad and he feels like it’s unfair. Frank thinks this is really shitty, he thinks you’re being fucking rude, and he doesn’t think there’s a fucking chance that anyone fucking watching out in TVland thinks its fucking cool for him to go in three times in a fucking row. That’s why he’s mad and that’s why he’s using 21 expletives in a single scene, okay MTV? Are you fucking okay with that?
Now, I understand that u/scyth13r’s team has a girl capable of a Titanic-like goodbye said to a woman she met a few days ago, but this truly doesn’t make up for the fact that the team also has a man who overuses expletives but still remains oddly calm, a girl who will fake headbutt her best friend, and Luke Wolfe, a man capable of withstanding horrifying, soul-crushing falls [1:20] because the only thing harder than liking Luke Wolfe is his head. You better shut him up in a very nice way so he isn’t that annoying. Are you gonna slap him? Then why the fuck did you put water all over him?
So, I give a truly heartfelt congratulations to CJ’s Angels. You didn’t pick Frank or Luke, and so you win. And to u/scyth13r, I say so long, farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, goodbye.
PS. Y’all are way too obsessed with Ashley K. How do y’all function? Ashley “Wonder Twin” Kelsey is MTV’s second-best Barbie, significantly behind my favorite horse-faced Tori Spelling reject, and she thinks there are upwards of 60 continents. Over 60 continents. This girl ain’t shit and I’m not afraid to say it. [This is made exponentially worse by the fact that my partner in Reddit crime, u/ND_PC, thinks that Ashley K. is a fitness icon. Are you kidding me? We’re done. We’re divorced.]
Match 2.0
CT, Dan, Amanda, Mattie > Wes, Jamie, Holly, Melinda
I’m extremely upset about this vote. I mean, I get it. CT will smash your head and eat it. Dan will spend the entire final pining after Holly but reminding everyone he has a girlfriend. Amanda is a freckled motherfucker. Mattie calls herself Martha and cries over boys who ain’t shit [looking at you, Jeremiah].
But - Wes owns a BMW, a Porsche, a monster truck and thirty companies. Suck his dick, voters! He doesn’t want to sleep two feet away from a mongoose, and he will dump your mattress into a pool. Call him Lionel Wessi, because when you put him on a soccer team, he scores them goals. Do you want to have a constructive conversation, or do you want him to make you cry? Because he can go both routes. Everyone says extremely harsh things behind your back, voters. Everyone in this house thinks that y’all are extremely immature. You’re not deep enough for him, voters!
So, congratulations to u/hkotilla! Apparently people don’t like redheads as much as I thought. u/dirtykilla36, this result makes me sad, but your fantastic choice of team members makes me happy. Thanks for playing! Now go watch ‘Love is Blind’ on Netflix.
Now, let’s get to voting on today’s matchups! It’s the semifinals, guys, so I trust that you will all take extensive time and use your profound discernment to divine the proper team to elevate to the final match.
[Sidenote by u/MandyMTV: PC, who gave you a thesaurus and taught you how to use it? Good riddance.]
Real World Bracket
Match: u/ry-guy2fly’s “Team Backpack” vs. u/RohAnTheMaker, u/giogugenishvili’s “The Silent Assassins”
Final: Rivals III
Teams
[u/ry-guy2fly] “Team Backpack”
[u/RohAnTheMaker, u/giogugenishvili] “The Silent Assassins”
Winner’s Logic
[u/ry-guy2fly] “Team Backpack”
  1. CT doesn’t need an introduction, but I’ll give my team captain one anyway. CT, who fashioned the iconic Banana Backpack, is the greatest competitor of all time. For my team, I plucked him from his greatest season of all time. If you name a skill that can be tested on this show, CT excels in that skill. Endurance, strength, skill, puzzles, eating, and everything in between. CT dominates.
  2. Aviv Melmod is the biggest reason Darrell is considered one of the best competitors in challenge history. Aviv is a puzzle queen with endurance to match it. Her puzzle skill and fire was the biggest factor in separating her and Darrell from their finals opponents on Fresh Meat. She’s a combination of Diem and Evelyn. Heart, passion, smarts, and fire. While she only competed in one season, she showed a plethora of Challenge knowhow. If she would have returned to the show, she’d be recognized as one of the all time greats.
  3. Brittini Sherrod is another one hit wonder like Aviv. Although she didn’t quite reach the heights of her female partner, she showed that she doesn’t have a real weakness. She never gives up and maintained a close race against Rachel on Duel 2. Brittini will never flounder under pressure and will continue to push through any and all obstacles.
  4. Mike Boise only competed on one season, but it was quick to see the relation between him and his brother Abram. Mike has GUTS! While he hated the house environment, Mike showed excellent know how. He’s an in shape guy who attacks any obstacle tactfully. Mike and CT are a great fit together, because no matter how hard CT pushes, Mike will respond. His all around knowledge and skill will prove useful in a final.
[u/RohAnTheMaker, u/giogugenishvili] “The Silent Assassins”
  1. Alton Williams was an OG who competed on The Gauntlet, Gauntlet 2, Inferno 3 and Seasons 2. In his run of the Challenge, it was obvious that he had killer endurance, elite climbing skills, great agility, was a solid swimmer and good at puzzles. Really all that needs to be said is that he was capable of competing at a top level with almost anyone in almost any daily challenge in the show’s history. He also showed great leadership skills as well - capable of stepping up and leading a team. On Gauntlet 2, Alton won the initial Royal Rumble (where unlike the vet guys - the rookies actually competed) and became team Captain. He remained Captain throughout the entire show, going 3-0 in elimination (with arguably the greatest rope climb of all time against Adam K in Capture the Flag) and lead the rookie team to victory in the Final Challenge.
  2. Adam Larson is an OG competitor who participated in Seasons 1, The Gauntlet and Gauntlet 2. Although his time on the show was short, he always showed to be a popular figure amongst the group and could compete well in Challenges with good strength and endurance. Adam excelled on The Gauntlet, showing he could compete at a high level with many competitors we still consider elite today (Theo V, Abram, Darrell, Miz, Alton) and he won the overall season. He tied Theo Von with the most lifesavers won on the Road Rules team with 2 each and was a steady leadership presence on the male side the entire time.
  3. Considered one of the best to never win, KellyAnne Judd was the most feared woman on The Ruins and for good reason. Only on her second season, she had already made a name for herself by beating Rachel on The Island. Tall, strong, great swimmer and a great runner, KellyAnne did not get to show her full potential during the season for two reasons - 1. she had a terrible team, so they were losing the dailies all the time 2. the champion girls were terrified of going against her, even Susie, so they kept her out of the eliminations except when she defeated two champions in Evelyn and Veronica. She also did great in the finals and was close to pulling an upset win with Sarah over Johnny, Evan, Kenny, Derrick and Susie. Unfortunately, we only got two seasons of prime KA, but those two seasons are enough to show that she would beast any final with the right team.
  4. “Ninja is the only woman to finish the hardest final in The Challenge history" is a line we have heard multiple times. However, Ninja's impressive rookie run goes beyond that sentence. In the first episode, she is the first female rookie to finish the challenge/puzzle. She then goes to win 4 dailies before reaching the final. Her finals performance is still the biggest highlight, She outpaces every other woman, including Cara, has to do extra running than others by being thrown in a surprise elimination with the defending champ and overall, manages to keep up with her male competitors. Ninja is not a perfect player and WotW1 did not test all her skills. She might not be a good swimmer or great at communication, but her cardio and endurance skills are some of the best of all time. She has also proven herself multiple times at puzzles and her real-life profession as a rock climber means she is well suited for many finals. She is also someone who enjoys the challenges and the carnival game aspect of them and while she might become defensive when she does not gel with her teammates, we believe that in a team of calm positive competitors, a.k.a. Silent Assassins, she would not face that issue.

  3. Amanda: Solid at most aspects of the game, IMO probably the second-best puzzle solver to appear on the challenge.

Most finals don't even have a course even close to as brutal as that final meaning she will do fine on every other final
[u/appropriatelywhelmed] - this user did not provide any logic, so I (u/ND_PC) will be doing it in their stead!
  1. Dustin Zito - In my mind, Dustin is best known for looking like a woodland creature and being a pain in Alton’s side on BotS2, all while broadcasting how unashamed and totally secure he was about previously having done porn. He’s… fine competitively, but slightly forgettable if I’m being honest. I guess he’s strong? Or are those popcorn muscles? Who knows? Since his time on the show, he has been arrested for sexual battery. Do with that information what you will.
  2. Cohutta Grindstaff’s name sounds sort of dirty, but to my knowledge he has never done porn, unlike his teammate on this fantasy team. If someone can confirm or deny this, please don’t do either and keep it to yourself. I prefer to hink of Cohutta as an innocent southern charmer who uses quaint little southern expressions. He had a romance with Nany, and with KellyAnne before that. He was friends with Ace Amerson and he has a heart of gold. He’s a really pure person and a strong competitor all-around.
  3. Heather Cooke makes peeing yourself look almost cute and admirable - take note, Kailah! She was a one-off, competing with Cara Maria on her only season and basically dominating. Like a few other challengers, Cooke had professional athlete aspirations, but unlike most of the other competitors, she succeeded! She was on the Philippines national soccer team being the total boss that she is. Many fans believe that if she had stuck to the Challenge, she may have been in the uppermost echelon of female competitors. We don’t know what could have happened, but she is definitely a force.
  4. Veronica Portillo was most recently featured on the show as the object of CT’s season-long lamentation. Can we talk about how CT, a fan-favorite, was shitting on his partner all season and we somehow blamed her? Okay, maybe it was actually her fault for not training and not competing hard… but still, what a bad look for CT that we all collectively chose to look away from. Oh well! Anyway, the version of Veronica competing on this team was still in her prime. She was politically savvy, physically tough, adept at puzzle-solving and had tremendous mental strength.
The Inferno 3 Final Description - thanks to u/ry-guy2fly for the amazing description!
Each team starts off with four large puzzle pieces. Those puzzle pieces will be carried along the path for the entirety of the race. You will use these puzzle pieces to create a visual reconstruction of the big five animals in Africa (Lion, Leopard, Water Buffalo, Elephant, and Rhinoceros). You do this using big square blocks. For reference, Derrick is seen carrying two at a time and Evelyn carrying one. They’re bulky.

2020.02.17 03:58 ND_PC The r/MtvChallenge Fantasy Tournament: Redemption House - Day 21 (Round Five)

Welcome to the fifth round of the redemption house. Blink, and you’ll miss it! The fifth round is TODAY only! The winners of this round will face the losers of the semifinals of the main bracket. Intense! At this point, we’ve got a 4-1 team and seven 3-1 teams remaining in the loser’s bracket, while all teams in the main bracket enter the day at 3-0. Basically, that means the redemption house has more experienced players, and even a few teams that have won more matches than anybody in the main bracket. So... is this really the winner’s bracket? No! Don’t kid yourself! You were knocked out of the tournament, ya loser!
But worry not, for this is a safe and positive atmosphere! Join us as the loser battle heats up with even more head-to-head fights for redemption. Together, we’ll find out which team can overcome embarrassing losses, terrifying finals, and (supposed) voter insanity. While nobody will re-enter the Winner’s Bracket, you may just find yourself the Ruler of Redemption.
Before we get to the voting, let’s recap Friday’s fantasy match-ups.
Real World Bracket
Finally, Chet is gone! We can dance like the ewoks celebrating on the forest moon of endor! Look, I like Theresa and Momma Day as much as anyone else, but Mr. Perfect Face practically ruins this team for me - no offense u/harsh-femme. And who better to eliminate him than Nehemiah? (Answer: literally any other player, this is so anticlimactic).
Sadly, we’ll have to say goodbye to the pride of Marquette and the mother of Easton, Miss Theresa Gonzalez. If this was like the videogame NBA Street v3, the victorious team could trade any player they wanted to the loser in exchange for anyone on that team, and u/dolfan2354 would exchange Amanda for Theresa. It’d be an upgrade in almost any stat category you can think of.
But this isn’t NBA Street v3, this is the MtvChallenge fantasy tournament, so u/dolfan2354 is stuck with the team they have. It’s worked out for them so far! Seriously, this final had a little bit of everything - Thai bead stringing, coconut water, eating, puzzles, swimming, paddleboarding, climbing, running… everything. At some point, it becomes about who gets exhausted last, and who has the mental strength to complete the final. This might be a biting take, but Da’Vonne would probably get irritated the easiest of these eight competitors and check out mentally on the first or second night. I could also see Chet doing this. Meanwhile, Derrick K, Nehemiah, Veronica and Amanda would have no quitters, and would fight through the exhaustion to claim the victory.
So congratulations, u/dolfan2354! You’ll move onto the next round which is, uh, right now! And to u/harsh-femme, thanks for competing in the tournament, and we hope you had fun.
Road Rules Bracket
Welp, Team Likability’s unlikely run to the fourth round of the loser’s bracket has come to an end. I was rooting so hard for Kyle (who probably has the best sense of humor on the modern show), Josh (who wears his heart on his sleeve better than anybody), Sarah (who is an innocent crossword-loving funster), and Nany (who was the show’s sweetheart for so many years and we don’t need to talk about her paranoia on War of the Worlds 2), but they met their fate today. That’s right, Amanda Garcia has won two finals on one day. Buoyed by CT, probably, and Mattie being stronger than Nany in the minds of many fans (oh gosh, now I want to see this), Satan’s Asshole comes out on top once again.
The Fresh Meat II final featured canoeing, tangrams, sudoku, mountain biking, weight carrying, more sudoku, and mountain climbing. While in my mind these activities all live in the wheelhouse of the untouchable goddess Sarah Rice, I’m sure what tipped the scales was the 80lb bag carry that had to be done in pairs. CT and Dan are both more than capable of carrying 80 lbs that distance on their own, while Josh may not be and Nany probably also wouldn’t be. Especially after a weight-based puzzle, it would be hard to bank on Sarah and Kyle to do the heavy lifting and out-move CT, Dan, Mattie, and beneficiary Amanda.
Aside from the weight carry, I actually think it’d be pretty even. No wonder the score only differed by six votes here. I think Team Likability is probably the superior puzzle team, but Amanda is a very smart player and Dan and CT can hold their own on puzzles. Satan’s Asshole has a big brain after all, and as was destined, they eliminate Team Likability from the tournament. Nice guys really do finish last.
Congratulations to u/hkotila! You’re competing again today! And, to u/trebird1, this ends your time here on the MtvChallenge fantasy tournament. Take care of yourself.
Now, let’s get to voting. Today is the last double day of the tournament! You know the drill - this means we have two matchups from each bracket!
Real World Bracket
Match 1.0: u/BCastle18 vs. u/honestkodaline, u/priorsloth’s “Adore Delano 2020”
Final: The Inferno II
Teams
[u/BCastle18]
[u/honestkodaline, u/priorsloth] “Adore Delano 2020”
Winner’s Logic
[u/BCastle18]
  1. Landon in the night elimination against Luke and Ev literally dragged a almost unconscious Carley to a win and in the finals carried Carley up a mountain to get the win over 3 teams that on paper seemed stronger one of which included two top 10 challengers of all time in Kenny and Laurel with the weakest partner. Also did all of this while being respectful and supportive of his partner throughout showing he is very much a great team player.
  2. Only one team was in the main house all season on FR, it was Sylvia and Joss. They won the final endurance purge and won it rather comfortably. Showed that she can keep her composure in their elimination against John/Tony and many even believe that Sylvia and Joss were the rightful winners of FR, they also only lost by 40 seconds even while getting hit with two grenades.
[u/honestkodaline, u/priorsloth] “Adore Delano 2020”
  1. Other than strong competitors our teams biggest strength is that there is a clear alpha leader (Ev), and the other three are team players that will follow a strong competitor.
  2. EVELYN SMITH WON A SIMILAR FINAL, on Rivals 1! Not only did she win this final, but she did it with Paula. They beat Laurel and Cara Maria who would easily win anything you threw at them today. We know this wasn’t because Paula is a powerhouse, it was literally ALL on Ev. I don’t need to say much more because Ev is iconic, she won 3 seasons, and any true Challenge fan knows her résumé. Game, set, match bitch.
  3. Cohutta may not have a win yet, and he may be on the smaller side of the men, but he is brilliant. He makes the challenges work for him. During this season, Free Agents, he showed incredible agility being one of three people to make it across the rolling log during the first challenge. In the second daily he was partnered with Laurel, and of course they won, but neither could’ve done it without the other. On the third challenge he lead a team of Nany, Latoya and Preston across the bar crawl (sliding two bars under a wall suspended above water) when teams that had Jordan, CT, and Cara couldn’t even make it across! Free Agents was Cohutta’s best run and he finished in 6th place. This season showed us that Cohutta can work on a team with ANYONE and perform above average.
  4. Ashley Kelsey kickboxes. She solves puzzles. She stands up for Sam (well, halfheartedly, but she did at one point stand up for Sam, at least once, in her own way). She dated Dario, and we don't judge her for that. She won her first season. She lost her second season to Cara, but didn't she look cute while doing it?
  5. Ace Amerson invented the trash can punch. He hooked up with Tonya. He was on Team Good Guys on Inferno 3, because he is a good guy. In real life, he rides a lot of 4-wheelers and has a cute dog. He'll listen to Evelyn's orders. He'll be a supportive teammate and friend to all, except Derrick.
  6. Our team is a lean, mean machine - heavy on the lean. We run. We think critically (well, Evelyn does). We fight (well, Evelyn does). We get shit done... well, you get the point.
The Inferno II Final Description - thank you to the lovely u/stayoutofthe-forest for the details.
Match 2.0: u/ry-guy2fly’s “Team Backpack” vs. u/dolfan2354
Final: Cutthroat
Teams
[u/ry-guy2fly] “Team Backpack”
[u/dolfan2354]
Winner’s Logic
[u/ry-guy2fly] “Team Backpack”
  1. CT doesn’t need an introduction, but I’ll give my team captain one anyway. CT, who fashioned the iconic Banana Backpack, is the greatest competitor of all time. For my team, I plucked him from his greatest season of all time. If you name a skill that can be tested on this show, CT excels in that skill. Endurance, strength, skill, puzzles, eating, and everything in between. CT dominates.
  2. Aviv Melmod is the biggest reason Darrell is considered one of the best competitors in challenge history. Aviv is a puzzle queen with endurance to match it. Her puzzle skill and fire was the biggest factor in separating her and Darrell from their finals opponents on Fresh Meat. She’s a combination of Diem and Evelyn. Heart, passion, smarts, and fire. While she only competed in one season, she showed a plethora of Challenge knowhow. If she would have returned to the show, she’d be recognized as one of the all time greats.
  3. Brittini Sherrod is another one hit wonder like Aviv. Although she didn’t quite reach the heights of her female partner, she showed that she doesn’t have a real weakness. She never gives up and maintained a close race against Rachel on Duel 2. Brittini will never flounder under pressure and will continue to push through any and all obstacles.
  4. Mike Boise only competed on one season, but it was quick to see the relation between him and his brother Abram. Mike has GUTS! While he hated the house environment, Mike showed excellent know how. He’s an in shape guy who attacks any obstacle tactfully. Mike and CT are a great fit together, because no matter how hard CT pushes, Mike will respond. His all around knowledge and skill will prove useful in a final.
[u/dolfan2354]
  1. Derrick K- Arguably one of the best players in eliminations due to his tenacity. Always will compete has a never-say-quit attitude as evidenced multiple times. Is a multi time champion and has the cardio to crush any final. Is aware of shortcomings and is willing to sit back in puzzles and let those strong on his team due their thing. Is ready to crush any final!
  2. Veronica - Forgotten how dominant she was in her prime is a 3x champion who got better every season she was on. Won 4 life savers on the inferno. Has no glaring weakness is a strong female who is smart at puzzles and has the cardio to keep up with her team while also being able to mentally break her opponents!
  3. Amanda - Is a very loyal player and will compete as hard as she can in anything she does while also making sure her voice is heard. Arguably the best player in the lavender ladies. In invasion she showed how dominant she is at puzzles by solving her puzzle in minutes during the blood bath while other players were at it for an hour. Has the strength to pull her weight on any challenge. Has shown she is in great shape and has never shown signs that she would struggle with a final.
  4. Nehemiah - Is an all around player and is a 1x champion. Came into rivals shredded and in the best shape he has ever been in. Was carrying his team with an overweight Evan and proved that he is capable of running a final and competing to win. Has the body size to provide the muscle and really crush anything while also having a good mind when it comes to the tough aspect of using your brain.
Cutthroat Final Description
(Thank you to u/honestkodaline for this description!)
Road Rules Bracket
Match: u/scyth13r vs. u/phillyfly11’s “CJ’s Angels”
Final: Battle of the Bloodlines
Teams
[u/scyth13r]
[u/phillyfly11] “CJ’s Angels”
Winner’s Logic
[u/scyth13r]
  1. Frank Roessler Gauntlet III - The leader and backbone of his team. A smart physical competitor, the Veterans constantly targeted Frank. He prevailed in eliminations and his team took home a controversial W in the final.
  2. Luke Wolfe Cutthroat - Finishing ahead of the almighty Landon in elimination wasn't enough losing due to a puzzle in FM2, Luke carried his weight, and Abrams, and Sarah's, and Cara Maria's in the final of Cutthroat. Had the almighty Abe and Sarah been medically DQ'd sooner he would have won the final.
  3. Sylvia Elsrode Final Reckoning - Boasting a questionable 2nd place finish in a final, she did the thinking, the planning, and the puzzles for her team. She also tied Joss' shoes for him.
  4. Evelyn Smith Rivals - It’s Evelyn fucking Smith.
[u/phillyfly11] “CJ’s Angels”
  1. Emily Schromm, Rivals 2: In the wise words of the Godfather Mark Long, “She competes like a dude.” The most physically fit female competitor ,Emily dominated Rivals 2 with 6 daily wins en route to winning the season.
  2. Ashley Kelsey, Invasions: I chose this version of Ashley because she was in better physical shape and has running and winning a final experience and a great team player.
  3. CJ Koegel, Battle of the Seasons 2: Was the Leader of Team Cancun that won 2 dailies and was a part of the major alliance. He proved his ability to think on his feet and his physical strength by defeating Roided up Zach in his HALL BRAWL heat.
  4. Mike Boise, Bloodlines: One of the top performers the entire season, he proved that he wasn’t afraid of any task, asking multiple times to get thrown into elimination and that he has a killer mindset during competition."
Battle of the Bloodlines Final Description
Thanks to u/harsh-femme for this extraordinarily thorough rundown!
Match 2.0: u/dirtykilla36 vs. u/hkotila’s “Satan’s Asshole”
Final: The Gauntlet 2
Teams
[u/dirtykilla36]
[u/hkotila] “Satan’s Asshole”
Winner’s Logic
[u/dirtykilla36]
  1. First of all, my team Is comprised of all previous winners, so they’ve been there before and nerves won’t be an issue.
  2. Wes and Melinda were on the real world together and have a decent relationship that would Work to their advantage.
  3. My team has shown excellent mental and intestinal fortitude, so the eating portion wouldn’t serve as any type of problem.
  4. My team also consistently displays toughness, and mental superiority, so the final portion of walking on hot coals shouldn’t be any hindrance in winning the $$.
[u/hkotila] “Satan’s Asshole”
  1. CT: CHOO CHOO
  2. Dan: One of the top two performing males on this season which included Mark Long, Abe, The Miz, Derrick, and Brad... Also: https://medium.com/@shmalvey7/the-greatest-male-players-in-challenge-history-17-dan-setzler-75b8100f98a1
  3. Amanda: Solid at most aspects of the game, IMO probably the second-best puzzle solver to appear on the challenge.
  4. Mattie: Top 3 most physically imposing females to be cast behind Laurel and Late career Emily. A lot of shit has been talked on here about her stamina. Just remember, wherever you have Mattie ranked on endurance Georgia needs to be behind her. Plus she ran like 16-20 miles on a sand dune and was keeping pace with Cara during that time. Most finals don't even have a course even close to as brutal as that final meaning she will do fine on every other final
The Gauntlet II Final Description - Thanks to my post partner u/MandyMTV for writing this. Let’s have a moment of silence for our partnership, as it has now become a one-man operation because she mysteriously disappeared. (Side note, I heard from her on Saturday and she is alive and well.)
Which of these teams deserves to move on in our quest to discover The Challenge Fantasy Draft’s Biggest Loser? You decide.

2020.02.13 04:19 honestkodaline Fantasy Tournament - DAY 28 (Round of 8)

Welcome to the MtvChallenge Fantasy Tournament! For the past month, teams have battled the elements, grueling physical challenges, and my personal insults to survive to the Elite Eight! To those who made it: congratulations! And to those who didn't: We can't really trust the voters around here, anyway, because they voted against Evelyn Smith in round two and don't know what's good for them.
So here are the results from yesterday:
The Real World Bracket - u/SweatySpaghetti94 vs. u/ry-guy2fly; Battle of the Bloodlines final
SweatySpaghetti94 - 69
ry-guy2fly - 58
Well, it's official. We have this sub's final answer: Wes is better than CT, all logic be damned.
(Though to be fair, in the words of the wise and gracious u/priorsloth, we might as well all have rolled the dice for this final, because there's no way in hell we could know who would win this.)
u/ry-guy2fly, I'm heartbroken for you. Though in this painful moment, I must remind you of the first drafting round, where I expressed surprise that you picked CT before Wes. And remember your response?
Anyway, let's not dwell on your despair. Congratulations, u/SweatySpaghetti94! See you in the Final Four!
ROAD RULES BRACKET u/dirtykilla36 vs. u/OkonkwoTheCat's "Toxic - Britney Spears"; Inferno 3 final
Toxic - Britney Spears - 66
u/dirtykilla36 - 61
Guys.
GUYS.
This final has - count them with me - SEVEN puzzles to complete. Nicole can't even count to seven. Zach would lose his mind at every single person on his team, and I'm talking full batshit-crazy. Where is u/MandyMTV to talk shit about Adam King when we need her? MANDY, ADAM IS WINNING THINGS, AND IT'S NOT FAIR.
We think that Zach is going to beat Wes in a final with SEVEN puzzles. Really? The Real World bracket has Wes beating CT, but here he's going to lose to ZACH? Nah.
(Are my complaints housed in lingering resentment that my team was eliminated two rounds ago? Probably. Will I stop making these resentful complaints? Probably not.)
So that's the end of the road for u/ry-guy2fly and u/dirtykilla36 - EXCEPT IT'S NOT. The loser's bracket is WELL underway. GET OVER THERE AND VOTE!
Now, for today's vote!
REAL WORLD BRACKET - u/dolfan2354 vs. u/drgibbons3323's "Team Walnuts" ; S25: Free Agents
u/dolfan2354: Derrick Kosinski (The Ruins), Nehemiah Clark (Rivals I), Veronica Portillo (The Inferno), Amanda Garcia (Final Reckoning)

(Thanks to u/goddamnsundayscaries for this summary, complete with estimated completion times! You the best!)
Why you should vote for u/dolfan2354: Derrick K- Arguably one of the best players in eliminations due to his tenacity. Always will compete has a never say quit attitude as evidenced multiple time. Is a multi time champion and has the cardio to crush any final. Is aware of shortcomings and is willing to sit back in puzzles and let those strong on his team due their thing. Is ready to crush any final!
Veronica- Forgotten how dominant she was in her prime is a 3x champion who got better every season she was on. Won 4 life savers on the inferno. Has no glaring weakness is a strong female who is smart at puzzles and has the cardio to keep up with her team while also being able to mentally break her opponents!
Amanda- Is a very loyal player and will compete as hard as she can in anything she does while also making sure her voice is heard. Arguably the best player in the lavender ladies. In invasion she showed how dominate she is at puzzles by solving her puzzle in minutes during the blood bath while other players were at it for an hour. Has the strength to pull her weight on any challenge. Has shown she is in great shape and has never shown signs that she would struggle with a final.
Nehemiah- Is an all around player and is a 1x champion. Came into rivals shredded and in the best shape he has ever been in. Was carrying his team with an overweight Evan and proved that he is capable to run a final and compete to win. Has the body size to providee the muscle and really crush anything while also having a good mind when it comes to the tough aspect of using your brain.
Why you should vote for Team Walnuts: Paulie Calafiore – War of the Worlds I Stats: In Tribunal 6 out of 12 dailies ; Won first Challenge against all Vets ; Eliminated in Final Purge; Eliminated Kam and Ashley C in only elimination Summary: Paulie showed up and showed out throughout the first installment of the War of the Worlds. Placing in the top of 6 of the 12 dailies and controlling his own destiny throughout the season. He showed great bouts of cardio, puzzle solving, and food eating throughout his challenge history up to this point. Was eliminated in the final purge due to diving into the water headfirst and stunning himself, he was unable to complete what is normally a walk in the park and was eliminated prior to the final. Paulie is an awesome finals teammate if paired with the correct people, we saw what happened when Natalie ruined the first day for them in final reckoning. He excelled in all challenges throughout WOTW1 and was a finals threat (Turbo would have still won) but he has shown he is no slouch. He is determined to never quit even if his body would like him too. His puzzle solving is top of the line and he could carry any team in a puzzle checkpoint of a final to a sweet sweet victory.
CJ Koegel – Battle of the Seasons 2 Stats: Won 2 of 6 dailies ; Beat roided out Zach in a Hall Brawl Elimination (Eliminated due to Jasmine being blanked) Summary: Lets be honest, CJ was never going to win battle of the seasons II with the teammates he was put with. But they still managed to win two daily challenges and he is one of the few to best Zach in anything physical. CJ was a physical specimen with the tenacity of a warrior who was unfortunately paired with a lackluster team in BOTS2. However, it was shown that he is an absolute team player and has the knowledge and strength to run a final. He is most known for besting Zach Nichols 3-2 in a Hall Brawl elimination (Winning the first round 2-0) when Zach was at his biggest by using extremely smart strategy to outsmart the behemoth who is no mental slouch himself. CJ deserved to be on more challenges after quitting after two challenges, he was not one for drama but in the right team would dominate in a final.
Paula “Walnuts” “Iron Stomach” Meronek – Rivals II Stats: RIVALS II CHAMP; Won 6 out of 10 dailies; No eliminations this season Summary: Paula along with her partner Emily put together one of the most dominant seasons in Challenge history. Winning 6 out of the 10 dailies and only being in “trouble” to go to elimination by virtue of being voted in one time. But they managed to avoid elimination throughout the entire season. The Rivals II final consisted of Cardio, puzzles, eating disgusting dishes, strength, and more cardio. Paula and Emily fell behind early through the first two stages, but then the “Iron Stomach” showed everybody who deserved to win that final. She absolutely housed the eating portion of the final, and the rest is history. Paula and Emily went on to win Rivals II and Paula walked off into the sunset a 2-time champ. Paula was always known for being a finals threat. She wasn’t the greatest at eliminations but there was no true threat for her to be in an elimination throughout the entirety of Rivals 2. With her top of the line cardio, her insane eating prowess, and her determination of a champion, Paula is an ideal teammate to have in a final.
Tori “The New Choo-Choo” Deal – War of the Worlds 2 Stats: Purged out in the puzzle portion of the final ; Won 9 out of 14 dailies ; 2 elimination wins Summary: CHOO CHOO! The Tori Train is on the tracks and is prepared to take down anyone in a final. With her incredible endurance throughout the season and unwavering confidence, anybody is lucky to have Tori on their team in a final. She absolutely housed anybody put in front of her and was known for being the first person to turncoat in WOTW2. She absolutely destroyed a physical specimen in Jenny West in a physical elimination. Her finals performance was one for the books until a stroke of genius from Dee and Rogan purged her out at the last minute. Team UK was destined for victory no matter who were the top 4 from that purge. Tori was known for having a god like endurance and relentless grit during WOTW2. She was highly regarded as the best female that was on the show with her cardio, swimming prowess, and overall above average intelligence. A puzzle did her in at the last possible second of the final but she showed that she was never going to quit and I am convinced she could have carried the gurney all 16 miles if needed. All in, she is one of the best overall females to compete throughout the Challenge history and she will come back to prove that.
ROAD RULES BRACKET: u/wade5554's "You Cannot Copy My Walk vs. u/hkotila's "Satan's Asshole"; Battle of the Exes II
You Cannot Copy My Walk: Turabi "Turbo" Camkiran (War of the Worlds I), Adam Kuhn (Battle of the Exes II), Jenny West (War of the Worlds II), Da'Vonne Rogers (War of the Worlds I)
Satan's Asshole: Chris "C.T." Tamburello (Rivals I), Dan Setzler (Battle of the Sexes II), Amanda Garcia (Final Reckoning), Mattie Lynn Breaux (War of the Worlds I)
What the final entailed: Final location: Norway
Objective: Perform certain tasks at certain checkpoints in order to make it to Mount Slogan.
Checkpoint One: Kayak the Fjord Jump from a helicopter and swim to shore. The distance isn’t specified, but it’s the furthest Leroy’s ever swum, so maybe 20 feet? Then kayak to the second objective.
(This has nothing to do with the final — but damn is Jenna’s kayaking form hilarious. Her kayak DOES NOT EVEN GO IN THE WATER. Help.)
After kayaking, change and run another undisclosed distance to checkpoint two. (If necessary, hop off the road to take a shit. No judgment here.)
Checkpoint Two: Mind Games Unscramble the five-word sentence to continue on. (Bonus points if you yell “AHHH I LOVE WORD GAMES!” and dance in a circle before completing this objective. Queen shit.)
After the puzzle, run some distance alongside cows and sheep to the next checkpoint. Checkpoint Three: Don’t Flip Your Lid To pay this toll, you must flip a lid from the edge of your table and try to cover each glass. To begin, each person must drink one full glass of fish eggs and juice. You get three tries to flip each lid, and if you fail, you must drink another full glass.
After downing the drinks, run to checkpoint four. Along the way, you must pick up 5 rocks and carry them to the next checkpoint.
Checkpoint Four: Get Your Rocks Off
(Inappropriate, MTV.)
You must stand behind the line and toss 5 rocks into the hole in order to move on. You must alternate throws. If you miss, you must run back to the rock pile, collect more rocks, and try again until you land 5 total. Couples must consume a tube of local caviar before beginning each round.
(Sarah: “A whole TUBE? We just ate the parent, and now they’re making us eat the child?!”)
Once you’ve landed all 5, or 30 minutes has passed by, run to the next checkpoint. Along the way, stop and pick up bikes.
Shockingly, we’re not told how far they had to bike, either. It made about 20 seconds of airtime, so it couldn’t have been too far, right?
Rest Stop: You must take your place together either on top of your team bed or within your team zone. The team zone is by the fire, while the bed is cold. (Ten degrees, y’all! You’re surrounded by glaciers! It’s COLD!)
In the morning, it’s time to scale Mount Slogan. The peak is 5,200 feet. The team in the lead gets a five-minute lead. Keep in the mind that you’ve eaten nothing since fish guts and caviar, which you’ve already thrown up, and you’ve had no sleep in 24 hours. Ready for an eight hour climb? First to the peak wins!
Why you should vote for You Cannot Copy My Walk: Turbo- Turbo’s biggest strength is his endurance and heart. He was able to win the longest and arguably most difficult final ever. He will give his team everything he has and push his body to the limits. He did well in puzzles, finishing fourth in the purge, as well as winning the daily where they were spinning in the plane and had to solve the puzzle. His swimming ability could be called into question because it was not shown, but based off his other abilities I would say he is an average swimmer. He ate one plate during the eating portion, but with the amount of heart he has I think he could compete with the best in an eating final. All in all he is a well rounded competitor that is elite in endurance.
Jenny- Jenny has been underrated by many people because of the fashion in which she lost the hall brawl against Tori. She obviously has never played any contact sports growing up so she did not know how to play that elimination. But looking back to some of the dailies she was clearly the best runner as well as swimmer on the women’s side of the UK team. I think as far as endurance running and swimming she is right up there with the Laurel and Emily’s of the challenge. She may be slightly below elite tier because of the unknown. She absolutely beasted the puzzle against Nicole Bass, but it is hard to tell how quickly she finished because Nicole basically quit. She had shown to be a really good teammate and always keep a good composure under pressure. She has never run a final or done an eating challenge but it is safe to say that she would be very strong in both based off her training and performance in dailies.
Da’Vonne- Da’Vonne’s strength is puzzles. She absolutely demolished the purge, and also showed she was strong in puzzles on Final Reckoning. She is super underrated in strength and conditioning. In most possibly the hardest daily on the season, her and Wes won the challenge where they had to drag the metal to the dumpsters and weigh them. (The challenge where Ninja freaked out on Turbo). Wes was upset when he got stuck with Da’Vonne and she beasted it and won. Also, Bear quit on her in the other endurance daily with the tires, yet she kept going. She may not be in the best shape but she will never quit or hold her team back. She is also a very strong vocal leader, which is important to have in team finals. Also, she is the QUEEN of the challenge, if the other people let her make a final someday, she will for sure win it.
Adam- Adam was a very solid competitor. He won three eliminations in his six episode stint on the show. He was able to beat Dustin and Jessica in a physical climbing elimination, John and Simone in a eating competition, and Knight and Jemmye in a strength challenge. He did all of this with Brittany as his partner, who was not very good at any of the challenges they did. He never did any swimming so that is an unknown that some people may hold against him, but I am pretty confident he can swim better than the other teams weaker swimmers. Again he won an eating elimination, and was in fantastic shape on his season, so the endurance should be no problem for him. He did not have high tolerance for people that were weak performers but in a stacked team like he is on for this he would be willing to put his ego aside and compete as a team to win.
Why you should vote for Satan's Asshole: Well, they have C.T.
CT: CHOO CHOO
Dan: One of the top two performing males on this season which included Mark Long, Abe, The Miz, Derrick, and Brad... Also: https://medium.com/@shmalvey7/the-greatest-male-players-in-challenge-history-17-dan-setzler-75b8100f98a1
Amanda: Solid at most aspects of the game, IMO probably the second-best puzzle solver to appear on the challenge.
Mattie: Top 3 most physically imposing females to be cast behind Laural and Late career Emily. A lot of shit has been talked on here about her stamina. Just remember, wherever you have Mattie ranked on endurance Georgia needs to be behind her. Plus she ran like 16-20 miles on a sand dune and was keeping pace with Cara during that time. Most finals don't even have a course even close to as brutal as that final meaning she will do fine on every other final
So which of these teams deserves to move ahead? You decide!

Voting will close at 10pm EST, 2/13. So quit wasting time and get to it!

2020.01.21 16:00 honestkodaline r/MtvChallenge Fantasy Tournament - Day Twelve (Round of 32)

Welcome to the MtvChallenge Fantasy Tournament! For the past month, 64 users on our sub have been drafting teams of four to compete in hypothetical final challenges. Now that the draft is complete, it's time to decide who drafted the best team! This tournament will consist of two single-elimination brackets, The Real World and Road Rules. Once each bracket has a winner, the two winners will face off for the ultimate title.
Before we get to today's vote, here are the results from day eleven:
REAL WORLD BRACKET - u/Freesin “The OG Good Guys” vs. u/stayoutofthe-forest, u/dereleek07 "Team Dutch Australians"; S10: The Inferno II
Team Dutch Australians - 78
The OG Good Guys - 72
I learned yesterday that u/Freesin is Dutch, which just makes it all the more ironic that he lost to a Dutch-named team with no Dutch players and (as far as I know) no Dutch participants. And I think I know why. u/stayoutofthe-forest and u/dereleek07 pandered to your votes by leading with a movie star. Jamie Chung isn't even THAT famous, guys. I mean, she started her acting career with Days of our Lives. And sure, she had a role in Grown Ups, and Sucker Punch, and Premium Rush, and Big Hero 6, and The Gifted, and Jesus Christ, she really is pretty famous. When did that happen?
Anyway, you all fell right into Team Dutch Australians' trap. Unless the final entails writing for a fashion blog or "and ACTION!", what is Jamie Chung really going to contribute?
(Sidenote: Jamie Chung's most iconic quote is without a doubt "I don't sing. Just because I'm Korean doesn't mean I karaoke." I changed my mind - she deserves all of our votes and more.)
Sorry, u/Freesin. You may be Dutch but just like Bananas in that trivia challenge, you've also lost. This ends your time here on The Challenge. Take care of yourself. I'm sure we'll see you again in the future.
ROAD RULES BRACKET - u/kayotereeves "Team Needy Greedy" vs. u/OkonkwoTheCat's "Toxic - Britney Spears"; S6: Battle of the Sexes
Toxic - Britney Spears - 82
Team Needy Greedy - 68
Is there any team name more accurate than "Toxic"? This team is full of one asshole after the next. Zach's a misogynist, Adam's got a whole HOST of issues, Nicole broke Laurel's heart and that makes me hate her, and Brittini's name insists on autocorrecting to Britain EVERY DAMN TIME I TYPE IT, so I want to talk about her as little as possible.
But alas, Team Toxic pulled out the win here. I'm not totally convinced that was the right call, mostly because there are a combined two brain cells between BOTH of these teams (one belongs to Tori, and the other is split evenly between the other seven competitors).
So this signals another heartbreaking loss for Nelson, who just can't seem to catch a break, and also can't seem to stop being stupid. Sorry for your luck, u/kayotereeves. And congratulations, u/OkonkwoTheCat! You're moving on to round 2.
Well, that's the end of the road for u/Freesin and u/kayotereeves - EXCEPT IT'S NOT. The loser's bracket started yesterday! The voting works the same as this tournament, so essentially the only change is that now you have the opportunity to lose TWICE - and almost everyone will. Oh, and for an added bonus, I get the special pleasure of getting shown up at my own game by u/ND_PC and u/MandyMTV's jokes, which are superior to mine in every way. Thank God for the Redemption House, am I right?
(I'll take Sentences I Never Thought Would Come From My Mouth for $500, Alex.)
Anyway, go to this post to read about today's teams and vote for the loser's bracket!
Now let's get to today's vote!
REAL WORLD BRACKET -
u/Lalapalooza6252059 vs. u/cretetts "Old School Cool"; S16: The Island
Lalapalooza6252059: Jordan Wisely (War of the Worlds 2), Stephen Bear (War of the Worlds I), Nicole Zanatta (Invasion of the Champions), Mandi Moyer (Fresh Meat II)
Old School Cool: Eric Nies (Battle of the Sexes II), Colin Mortensen (Battle of the Sexes I), Jodi Weatherton (The Duel), Jillian Zoboroski (Fresh Meat II)
What the final entailed: In ‘The Island,’ the ‘Sailing to Victory’ finale was quite simple: build a boat, sail to an island with your team, and unlock a treasure chest to win the ultimate prize.
Set-Up: Players were divided into teams. Each team had their own partially-finished boat. In addition, each competitor had a key given to them because of wins in daily competitions. Competitors were allowed to spend much of the night before the official final commenced to complete as much of their boat as possible. The final begins with players being given the final pieces of their boat as well as directions to The Island.
Obstacles:
  1. Boat Building: Players had to complete their unfinished boats using pieces given to them the morning of the final. When players finished building their boats (or had their boats as complete as they deemed necessary) they were then eligible to begin their sail to the finish.
  2. Navigation: Once in the water, players navigated high waves and tricky currants, attempting to set sail to the island containing the prize money. 3. Unlock the Prize: Upon reaching shore, players had to put their previously won keys into the corresponding locks to unlock the prize money.
(Thanks to u/MandyMTV for this summary!)
Why you should vote for Lalapalooza6252059: Lala didn't submit summaries, so these words are my own. Retweets do not indicate endorsement. Big Brother is a reality show about a group of people who have no privacy 24/7. Views or opinions expressed by a Houseguest are those of the indiviudals speaking and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS. Viewer discretion is advised.
HOT TAKE: Jordan is the best finalist of all time.
(You're like, that is not a hot take, do you even know what a hot take is, God, why do I even come to this sub?)
HOT TAKE: Stephen Bear is good television but probably not a good person.
(You're like, okay, maybe we shouldn't assume we know what these people are actually like? I mean, after all, this is a television show? Events are manufactured to create drama and the element of surprise, you jerk.)
HOT TAKE: Nicole is bad television and also probably not a good person.
(You're like, duh.)
HOT TAKE: Mandi is painfully average as both a competitor and a contestant on this show, and if she'd never been on, events probably would have played out in the same way.
(You're like, OKAY, NOW YOU'VE CROSSED THE LINE. IT WAS ALL FUN AND GAMES WITH NICOLE ZANETTA BUT THIS A NEW LOW FOR YOU. MANDI MOYER? REALLY? WITH HER PERFECT BLONDE HAIR? WITH HER SAINT-LIKE PATIENCE? HER GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP, HER TEAMWORK? AND HERE YOU COME WITH YOUR FALSE BRAVADO AND IGNORANCE. MANDI MOYER WAS A RIVALS FINALIST, BY THE WAY. WHAT ARE YOU A FINALIST OF, BESIDES BEING AN ASSHOLE? HOW DARE YOU. THERE'S A CHURCH THREE BLOCKS AWAY, TWO LEFTS THEN A RIGHT, WHERE YOU CAN REPENT. ASK FOR BROTHER JOHN. HE'S GOT A BOOK YOU CLEARLY NEED TO READ.)
Why you should vote for Old School Cool: Jodi -
Jodi has been the “last woman standing” multiple times in her career. She started off her career by being the only woman to make the final of her road rules season and was the first female individual champion on “The Duel”. Jodi, a two time champion, has proven to be good in just about every challenge that she has completed in. Winning 9/15 challenges with the Rookies over the veterans or by winning 7/15 individual challenges in the Duel, a record for most individual or duo challenge wins in a season. Even in her “worst” season she was seen as easily the best girl on the cast. So much so that when the good guys switched to put her into elimination against Veronica, The Bad Asses were enraged and claimed they weren’t playing fair. She came back and was again the top female competitor and was seen as indispensible by her team. Among her many talents she excels in water based competition, blowing away her competition in “Rafty Race” and securing her spot in the final with beating even the men in “Paddle me.” Her pure physicality matches strength with speed and endurance (as seen in challenges like “Roller Derby” and “Ice breakers”. Jodi was so good on “The Duel” that she was practically the winner as soon as they announced the woman in the sand would be the one choosing her opponent, no woman felt they could stand a chance against her. She is truly in a class of her own amongst female competitors and consistently competes on a same level as even the top men.
Jillian -
Who would win in an endurance challenge that is just as difficult as a final? Darrell a previously undefeated endurance machine who is the reigning winner of Fresh Meat and a future 2 time champ or THE Jillian Zoboroski and a one and done rookie? Jillian is the little engine that could, going 5-1 for eliminations in her career (two on which came in the grueling exiles of Canada). Jillian could be a two time champion if not for Kina choosing to save her friend Ibis, by choosing Jillian who the team regarded as the stronger female competitor. She has shown she has grit and tenacity by winning a grueling “Turn Style” match that involved Landon and two much larger women and then beating a completely rested Wes and CJ shortly after. All three of her elimination wins on the Gauntlet two were also very psychical challenges that she who despite her size disadvantage. She is also very adept at puzzles which gave her the edge she need to win in exile. Jillian can be both a leader and a follower making her a very well rounded team player.
Eric N -
The man with the skipping rope. This endurance freak and fitness model was one of the first real athletes on the show. He appeared in many workout videos and fitness promotions where “As each workout video progressed, while the other participants remained fully clothed, Nies invariably removed layers of clothing until bare chested” because the is what the people wanted. Nies is a two time challenge champion (and one time host). He was one on three male winners on Battle of the Sexes 2 that consisted of one of the toughest male casts of all time. Eric was consistently one of the top males on the team and in a season where you could be voted out for not performing he was never in the conversation due to his consistency and sportsmanship. Eric and Dan went 6-0 as team leaders in challenges, ahead of great competitors like Theo Von (4-2), Mark Long (3-2) and Brad (4-1). He is the everything man with his top strength being endurance and cardio.
Colin -
Rounding out the team is arguably the best one and done competitor of all time in Colin Mortensen. He and Mark were far and away the top competitors for the dominant men’s team finishing 32 points ahead of the third place man (Jamie Murray 3x champ). I dug further into these numbers to filter for the top competitors on both teams (Getting in the top 2 for points in a mission). Out of 15 missions Colin was the top competitor 6 times, the only men to match that were Eric Nies and Antoine (was also was dead last for the men 3 times). Colin was the overall points leader for 9 of the 15 episodes with the next closest being Mark at 5. Of the 4 partner challenges, Colin was paired with a different partner every time and was part of the top pairs 4/4 times, showing his ability to work well with any partners. In the final Colin is the MVP for the men, he is a consistent positive voice and leader, saves the men in the puzzle section and is the fastest swimmer to the finish line.
(Yes, I realize that these summaries encompass more than just the selected seasons. Please only consider the specific season while voting, friends.)
ROAD RULES BRACKET:
u/hkotila vs. DQ - Because Rtbama55 dropped out of the draft, u/hkotila will move automatically into the round of 16.
hkotila: Chris "C.T." Tamburello (Rivals I), Dan Setzler (Battle of the Sexes II), Amanda Garcia (Final Reckoning), Mattie Lynn Breaux (War of the Worlds I)
The vast expanse of universe where nothing exists: Johnny "Bananas" Devenanzio (Free Agents), Jenna Compono (Battle of the Bloodlines), you, and me. Emptiness. Fatigue. Loneliness. The sheer nothingness overwhelms us. Time passes. We're getting older. Nothing I'm writing makes any sense, but you don't care. Look at the sky - you can't, you're inside. Look at your screen. You want to vote for Bananas. He's the champ. Your blood heats up. He's the GOAT, you want to scream, but you're just yelling into the void, and also, Bananas isn't the GOAT. There's nothing here. Bananas is dying a slow, painful death, with no one but Jenna to keep him company. Did you know her cousin's father owns a bakery? It's over. There's nothing you can do. You've never felt heartbreak quite like this.
What the final entailed: You're still reading. Why? You know there's nothing here. There's no final to run; there's no team to run it. Imagine yourself running a final. It's nameless. It's imaginary. It can be anything. I'd excel at a final that involved exclusively Nintendo 64 video games and creating spreadsheets. I can braid hair well. I can set up a tent in thirty seconds flat. Do I have your vote yet? What's the point of any of this? And then we die.
So which of these teams deserves to move ahead? You decide!
VOTE HERE.
Voting will close at 10pm EST, 1/21. So quit wasting time and get to it!

2019.12.31 20:09 honestkodaline The Challenge: Through the Decade

Happy New Year’s Eve, all you beautiful people! To celebrate the end of the decade, u/priorsloth and I looked back at all 16 seasons in the 2010s to rank them and break them down. Proceed at your own risk; this shit turned into a literal novel.
S19: Fresh Meat II
Winners: Landon Lueck and Carley Johnson
2nd place: Kenny Santucci and Laurel Stucky
3rd place: Jillian Zoboroski and Pete Connolly
Debuts: (Fresh Meat) Carley Johnson, Laurel Stucky, Pete Connolly, Noor Jehangir, Theresa Gonzalez, Luke Wolfe, Mandi Moyer, Sydney Walker, Sandy Kang, Brandon Nelson, Jeff Barr, Vinny Foti, Cara Maria Sorbello Debuts: (MTV) CJ Koegel, Katelynn Cusanelli
Best casting choice: Something I didn’t know, Jonna was on this season but lost her passport and couldn’t make it. Luke was left without a partner, and they brought in Evelyn to replace Jonna. I love Jonna, but damn did Luke luck out in this.
Worst casting choice: Vinny Foti. What about this human appears athletic? Not only do we have a vacant facial expression to go with his mouth breathing, but we have STATS to prove why he shouldn’t be here. He was one of three people to DQ in the pre-season obstacle course. The other two? MANDI AND CARLEY. Keep in mind, Sarah Rice (the resident “smart person” of the Challenge) picked Vinny before Pete (finalist), Luke and Brandon.
Most surprising casting choice: Jillian Zoboroski. After taking 2 years and 3 seasons off, I didn’t think Jillian would be back. She’s mellow, low drama and a bit on the conservative side when it comes to the drama we typically see. She has always been strong, but not one for alliances and politicking. It’s no surprise that this was her last showing.
Sloth’s most memorable moment: Katelynn’s famous fall… hitting every rock on the way down.
Koda’s most memorable moment: There’s not a specific moment that encapsulates this, but the most memorable part of the season for me was watching Kenny and Laurel, arguably the strongest Challenge duo ever formed, lose to Carley Johnson.
Sure, she had Landon as a partner. But they still lost to Carley. It’s almost unbelievable.
Highlights: The Fresh Meat format is fantastic; bring back the exile elimination; Landon being a gem of a partner to Carley.
Lowlights: FIVE of the FM women couldn’t even do ONE pullup.
Rookie of the season: Brandon Nelson. He was in the top 3 FM guys based on the pre-season stats, nearly punched Danny, naked cannon-balled into the hot tub, and got DQed for drinking before the elimination. If this isn’t the profile of a Challenge competitor, then we must be watching different shows.
Biggest disappointment: Cara and Darrell being eliminated first.
Season ranking: 4
S20: Cutthroat
Winners: Red Team- Brad Fiorenza, Tori Fiorenza, Dunbar Merrill, Tyler Duckworth
Debuts: Camila Nakagawa, Chet Cannon, JD Ordoñez, Ayiiia Elizarraras, Derek Chavez, Emilee Fitzpatrick, Ty Ruff, Emily Schromm
Best casting choice: Katie Doyle will be the answer for every season she’s on.
Worst casting choice: Shauvon. What about her tenure on the Duel 2 and the Ruins (“I popped my fkin implant, you guys.”) made her a candidate for this show?! FFS, bring back Montana before Shauvon! As expected, she quit “for her team”.
Most surprising casting choice: Cara Maria. While it doesn’t seem surprising now, Cara was coming off of being the first eliminated in FM2 when she had Darrell as her partner. She was doubted and talked down to by most of her team for the whole season, yet she made it to the final and didn’t quit or have to be medically evacuated.
Sloth’s most memorable moment: I will never be able to get the image of Abe throwing up while his arm is limp and twitching with each dry heave out of my head.
Koda’s most memorable moment: Laurel’s barrage of insults to Eric Banks, and the subsequent non-apology during the reunion. At this point, I would do almost anything for Laurel, but I’m fairly confident she’s not actually a good person.
Highlights: Luke’s cast photo; Bananas backpack
Lowlights: Luke’s cast photo; the last time we see Katie Doyle; pretty much everything else about this season
Rookie of the season: Emily Schromm. She outlasted all of the men on her team, won two eliminations, never quit the final, and had the most graceful puke I’ve seen on this show.
Season ranking: 16
S21: Rivals
Winners: Johnny Devenanzio/Tyler Duckworth and Evelyn Smith/Paula Meronek
Runner up: Wes Bergmann/Kenny Santucci and Cara Maria Sorbello/Laurel Stucky
Third place: Michael Ross/Leroy Garrett and Jenn Grijalva/Mandi Moyer
Debuts: Adam Royer, Jonna Mannion, Jasmine Reynaud, Leroy Garrett, Michael Ross
Best casting choice: Honestly, this was the season of golden rookies (minus Adam). Jonna, Jasmine and Leroy became staples and Mike had an amazing one-and-done season. The four of them were the greatest crop of rookies up to this point.
Worst casting choice: Kaitlynn Cusanelli. Kaitlynn… I love her as a reality TV star and socio/political activist. BUT her not so graceful tumble in FM2, combined with this quote from Rivals, “I don’t do so well with heights and I’m deathly afraid of water” should disqualify her from being invited back.
Sloth’s most memorable moment: The noises that Mike made after Leroy fell on him during a daily swimming challenge, and his subsequent “Can Lee come with me” through his tears on the gurney going to the hospital was the most tender thing I’ve seen in recent memory.
Koda’s most memorable moment: Kenny putting Wes over his shoulders in the final was simultaneously the most embarrassing and the most delightful moment of Wes’ Challenge career.
Highlights: CT picking up a stone swan with ONE HAND after it took all of Johnny, Evan, Kenny and Wes to carry it to Mandi’s bed; the first of the Rivals series; don’t call me a guy, Ty!
Lowlights: Evan’s treatment of Nehemiah and his flop in the elimination; the Wes/Cara/Laurel/Paula fight
Rookie of the season: Mike Ross. Arguably the most unathletic and unqualified candidate to make a Challenge final.
Season Ranking: 1
S22: Battle of the Exes
Winners: Johnny Devenanzio and Camila Nakagawa
Runners-up: Chris "CT" Tamburello and Diem Brown
Third place: Ty Ruff and Emily Schromm
Debuts: Naomi Defensor, Dustin Zito, Heather Marter, Nate Stodghill, Priscilla Mendez
Best casting choice: The return of the vets! Rachel, Mark, Robin and Aneesa all came back. After multiple seasons off for each of these vets, it was surprising to get even one back, let alone four.
Worst casting choice: I’m going to go with Nate and Priscilla. These two came from the Real World San Diego (2011). That season had Zach Nichols, Ashley Kelsey, Frank Sweeney, Alex Govere, and Sam McGuinn. They literally picked the two most unathletic and incapable people on this show when they had a pool of dramatic athletes to choose from.
Most surprising casting choice: VINNY, OBVIOUSLY. Cara was brought back after FM2 where she was eliminated first. However, Cara was a strong competitor with a poor first showing, her stats proved that. Vinny on the other hand left us absolutely zero reasons to believe he could excel on this show. WHY was he brought back? Oh, to pull Mandi’s top down and DQ himself and Sarah, of course.
Sloth’s most memorable moment: My favorite Camila meltdown. Chair throw>>> jumps into pool>>> “don’t talk to me, I’m a wall”>>> “you cheater! You’re gonna die!”>>> Aneesa and Johnny’s facial reactions
Koda’s most memorable moment: Obviously, it’s the Camila meltdown. This fight gave us “The Camilanator” nickname and has to be the most replayed clip in the history of the show, besides the Bananas backpack. I feel like we saw it at least three times in each of the next ten seasons.
Highlights: All the warm and fuzzies from the reunion of CT and Diem; Mark Long’s body covered in honey; Ty and Emily dominating the dome; Abram being an adorably supportive partner to Cara; Mark ditching his Brett Michaels bandana
Lowlights: Vinny pulling Mandi’s top down; Wes pining over Mandi; Emily in blackface per Camila’s assurance that it wasn’t racist; the close-up of Dustin’s knee gash… “and there’s my knee cap!”
Rookie of the season: To be honest, this wasn’t a good season for rookies. Nate and Priscilla were the first outs, Dustin and Heather were DQed due to Dustin’s injury, and Leroy and Naomi went out in the dome in the same episode as Dustin and Heather were DQed. But before this, Leroy and Naomi took out Wes and Mandi in an impressive elimination. It was the exes version of pole wrestle, and while Leroy put up a very impressive performance against Wes, his rookie partner lost to Mandi. So instead of trying to rationalize any of the rookies’ lackluster performances, we’ll just forego a rookie of the season for this season.
Season rating: 8
S23: Battle of the Seasons II
Winners: San Diego- Zach Nichols, Frank Sweeney, Sam McGinn, Ashley Kelsey
Runners-up: Las Vegas- Dustin Zito and Trishelle Cannatella
Debuts: Ashley Kelsey, Sam McGinn, Zach Nichols, Frank Sweeney, Devyn Simone, Marie Roda, Robb Schreiber, Nany González, Jemmye Carroll, Ryan Knight, Trey Weatherholtz, Laura Waller, Preston Charles, McKenzie Coburn, Lacey Buehler
Best casting choice: Alton and Trishelle. It’s always exciting to see strong vets brought back after a long break. I wouldn’t have considered Trishelle to be strong, but she held her own and made an impressive run with Dustin as the only 2-person team in the final.
Worst casting choice: Everything about Team Austin, except Wes, was a mess. Lacey is a sweet woman, but she is on par with Kaitlynn when it comes to being suited for The Challenge. Danny and Melinda are just coming off of a divorce. I love Challenge twists as much as anyone else, but DAMN to find out you have to work with your ex-spouse is all kinds of fucked up.
Most surprising casting choice: Chet Cannon. Listen, I do not like anything about Chet. Truly, he makes my skin crawl. However, this dude wears a bowtie, could fit into my skinny jeans, and his glasses might be one size too big. I would’ve never guessed he could actually excel at this show, let alone anything physical. So, as I’m typing this my body is trying to disown my hands, but good job, Chet.
Koda’s most memorable moment: Zach and Frank’s disgusting attacks on Sam during a difficult challenge; bonus points for the fact that San Diego was ahead of almost EVERY other team when Frank began screaming at Sam. Maybe if they hadn’t ran up the hill, Sam wouldn’t have been so tired? Also, have these two ever heard of the concept “positive reinforcement”? Generally, calling people fat, lazy, and stupid will not deliver the desired results.
Sloth’s most memorable moment: CJ’s letter to Ashley- it’s been a while since I’ve felt that level of secondhand embarrassment.
Highlights: Zach and Jonna’s romance; Wes/Big Easy hall brawl; Devyn/Easy romance; Devyn’s confessionals; the Frank/Zach kiss; "YOU WANNA GET STREET, BITCH?!"
Lowlights: Oh my god, the horrific treatment of Sam that we will NEVER FORGET; anytime Frank gets drunk; Alton’s meltdown; Frank and Zach harassing Dustin about his porno and Nany about her sister’s drug addiction
Rookie of the season: WHAT a contrast to last season! So many memorable rookies came from this season. This can’t go to one single rookie, but rather every rookie except for Trey, Laura, and McKenzie. I don’t even remember Laura or McKenzie, and Trey’s obsession with Wes was really weird.
Season rating:
S24: Rivals II
Winners: Chris "CT" Tamburello and Wes Bergmann, Emily Scrhomm and Paula Meronek
Runners-up: Frank Sweeney and Johnny Devenanzio, Cara Maria Sorbello and Heather Cooke
Debuts: Heather Cooke, Anastasia Miller, Jessica McCain, Jordan Wisely, Marlon Williams
Best casting choice: Cooke was a dominant physical competitor and served up at least a LITTLE drama. The fact that we never saw her again is criminal.
Worst casting choice: Putting Frank and Johnny as Rivals still pisses me off to this day. Johnny has a PLETHORA of Rivals to choose from. The fact that they put these two together over a tweet was aggravating to me. They weren’t even on a season together before this! Dunbar would’ve been a better sell considering Johnny screwed him over on the Island.
Most surprising casting choice: Dunbar and Tyrie. Tyrie talked shit about Dunbar on the Island for the way he acted about the food allocation…. Along with everyone else on the Island. Dunbar even said he was unaware that Tyrie disliked him when it was announced that they would be rivals. Dunbar has made a lot of enemies as well as Tyrie. This pairing was really weird.
Koda’s most memorable moment: Cooke and Cara officially completing their underdog storyline by winning the last daily challenge and securing their place in the final. Watching the other three teams beg, plead, and literally cry to save themselves from the last elimination made me embarrassingly happy.
Sloth’s most memorable moment: Cooke peeing into the pool that they might’ve fallen into if they would’ve lost the elimination.
Highlights: I’m not sure this qualifies as a highlight, but the neverending fountain of CT’s vomit in the final is quite literally burned into my brain.
Lowlights: Knight’s homophobic dig at Marlon; Sarah’s partner getting her DQed for the second season in a row; Zach and Trey DQing after cheating in their elimination
Rookie of the season: Three out of five rookies made it to the final this season - Cooke, Marlon and Jordan. Looking at the stats and the game play, it really is hard to find a stand out between these three without going back and watching the entire season. I think all three of these rookies deserve the title.
Season rating: 3
S25: Free Agents
Winners: Johnny Devenanzio, Laurel Stucky
Runners-up: Johnny Reilly, Nany González
Third place: Zach Nichols, Devyn Simone
Debuts: Nia Moore, LaToya Jackson, Brandon Swift, Johnny Reilly
Best casting choice: Cohutta Grindstaff. After six seasons without Cohutta, I thought he was gone for good. Although he didn’t make the final, he came back with his strongest Challenge showing making it to 6th place, and having an adorable fling with Nany.
Worst casting choice: Honestly, was there a bad casting choice this season? Chet turned out to be a disappointment (and racist, but that’s a story for another day), but that wasn’t MTV’s fault. This was a solid cast with few genuine fillers; almost everyone contributed something. Maybe Emilee Fitzpatrick?
Most surprising casting choice: Preston Charles. Who would’ve thought that Preston would thrive in an individual season? Not me, but I couldn’t be happier eating my words on this one. He was consistently picked last in the dodgeball style team picks, yet he was the game changer in each team challenge he was in. This was a good high note for Preston to either take a very long break, or retire from the show.
Koda’s most memorable moment: For some reason, it’s Jordan yelling at Jessica to hurry across the spinning tube thing on the skyscraper daily, then watching Jessica get across and Jordan fall off almost immediately. Instant karma is a dish that never gets old.
Sloth’s most memorable moment: Laurel literally carrying Zach up a mountain; “I didn’t sign up for babysitting” is one of my favorite Challenge quotes of all time.
Shoutout goes to Cohutta’s reaction to the daily where they had to pass the planks back and forth over the water to get across: “I call this Tuesday.”
Highlights: Cara digging herself into a hole in her elimination against Nia; CT choosing Cara with her fractured hand; Nany making a close second place behind Laurel in the final; Jasmine vs. Laurel with Laurel patting Jasmine on the back as she’s crying before the elimination even starts
Lowlights: Johnny strong-arming Nany into voting for Cara in a female elimination after her broken hand; Teresa being shady; Puzzle purge (even though that’s not what they called it at the time) right before the final
Rookie of the season: Johnny Reilly was graced with the luck of the Irish, as he never drew for elimination, but he still had a killer rookie season. He very likely would have won, if not for being partnered with Devyn for the worst section of the final.
Season rating: 7
S26: Battle of the Exes II
Winners: Jordan Wisely and Sarah Rice
Runners-up: Leroy Garrett and Theresa Gonzalez
3rd place: Jay Gotti and Jenna Compono
Debuts: Thomas Buell, Hailey Chivers, John “JJ” Jacobs, Simone Kelly, Adam Kuhn, Brittany Baldassari, Averey Tressler, Jenna Compono, Jay Gotti
Best casting choice: Jenna and Jay. I know they had a horrible ending with Jay quitting the final, but they gave us a high level of entertaining stupidity before this. Not sad about Jay not returning; I think this was a high/low note for him to end his time at the challenge.
Worst casting choice: Zach and Jonna. I know watching Zach berate Jonna was meant to be entertaining, but I found the whole thing incredibly hard to watch. Jonna was a good partner and Zach talked shit about her every chance he got. I wish she’d had someone to stand up for her, but all she had was Jay, who was fucking useless in virtually every aspect of the game.
Runner-up goes to Jessica McCain, who never should have been cast for even one season of this show, let alone three.
Most surprising casting choice: Of all the AYTO alumni, I was suprised to see JJ and Simone make the list. Adam and Brittany were a rollercoaster from start to finish on AYTO, and were practically made for this season, but neither JJ or Simone were athletic or politically savvy enough to make a mark here. The only thing more surprising about casting Simone once was casting her twice.
Koda’s most memorable moment: Nia’s tirade against nearly every girl in the game, but especially Nany; “You’re the champion of sucking every dick in this house” is a quote for the ages.
The fact that she was in elimination because she was too scared to stand up on the rig above the water just made everything about this fight so much better.
Sloth’s most memorable moment: Jenna getting ready for the trivia challenge: “I can’t spell or am smart pretty much, so this is great for me.”
Highlights: Sarah voting in Banany; “I’m not an athlete, you’re right. I’m an elementary school art teacher!”; Jenna and Jay beating Jordan and Sarah in trivia, moments after Jordan refused to make a safety deal with them; Theresa finally making a final; Leroy hanging upside-down from a log and pulling himself across in approximately three seconds
Lowlights: The reaction after Sarah voted in Banany; every single thing Nia said in the hotel, but especially: “And the award for the sloppy fat, lazy bitch who doesn’t want to work hard”; “You’re still a faggot”; “You’re born with that. I’m talking about your vagina”; “The gay community absolutely loves me, so nothing you say can turn them against me. You’re already done. That’s not gonna work.”
Shoutout to the editors here, who took special care to include some incredibly demeaning confessionals from Nia. I understand including her insults to Jordan and Sarah in the heat of the moment, but do we really need to hear Nia say “Jordan, your balls and your integrity are just as big as your dick, and we both know that’s not much we’re working with here” after the fact? This scene was so hard to watch. I don’t understand why it was necessary.
Also a big middle finger to anyone who campaigns to bring Nia back. I couldn’t even keep track of the degrading insults to both Jordan and Sarah (not to mention past fights with Nany, Theresa, and other girls); there’s absolutely no reason for MTV to endorse sexist and homophobic comments by giving Nia another paycheck. They can find plenty of strong girls who won’t resort to making fun of penis size in arguments after a game decision.
Rookie of the season: I mean… Adam Kuhn? Underwhelmingly?
Season rating: 5
S27: Battle of the Bloodlines
Winners: Cara Maria and Jamie Banks
Runners-up: Cory Wharton and Mitch Reid
3rd place: Jenna Compono and Brianna Julig
Debuts: Oh, Jesus. Buckle in for this one: Dario Medrano, Christina LeBlanc, Emily Reese, Jill Tuttle, Candice Fowler, Larissa Nakagawa, Tony Raines, Shane Raines, Raphy Medrano, Nicole Ramos, Stephen Buell, Anthony Cuomo, Mike Boise, Vince Gliatta, Rianna Polin, Brianna Julig, Mitch Reid, Cory Wharton and Jamie Banks.
Best casting choice: Is there any answer besides Brianna Julig? The Jenna/Brianna combo was gold from start to finish. This girl was literally useless in every single competitive aspect of the game, but it didn’t even matter because Jenna was there to win every elimination and Brianna was there to bless us with her stupidity.
Worst casting choice: A bunch of the Bloodlines were pretty underwhelming. I’m not sure who thought casting Candice Fowler was a good idea, Larissa seemed doomed from the start, Vince is one of my least favorite people EVER cast for this show… but I’ll go with Christina/Emily, since they were both debuts and both should have just stayed home.
Most surprising casting choice: KellyAnne coming back with her cousin was a shock, and she definitely held her own.
Also, I get that Dario is hot and the source of good drama on AYTO, but I was surprised to see him cast. Did MTV really need to give us TWO of him?
Koda’s most memorable moment: The feeling of imminent doom when Abram showed up and fucked up all of Cara’s plans. I was secondhand fearing for my life.
(Shoutout to u/buellery for single-handedly saving this season. No pun intended.)
Sloth’s most memorable moment: Jenna and Brianna kayaking in the final.
Highlights: Everything Nicole Ramos did.
And because the Jenna/Brianna confrontation is one of my only positive memories of this entire season, here is the entire exchange, transcribed with love as a belated Christmas gift:
Jenna: “You want to leave? You can go back to your fake Spanish ass boyfriend who cheats on you all the fucking time!”
Brianna: “He doesn’t!”
Jenna: “Yeah he does!”
Cue confessional from Jenna: “If she decides to go home, I will never talk to her again.”
Brianna: “You don’t care about anything but yourself!”
Jenna: “Your fucking boyfriend cheats on you all the time!”
Brianna: “NO HE DOESN’T!”
Nany: “Who cares about your boyfriends?! You guys are cousins!”
Confessional from Brianna: “We’re on two different playing fields right now. I’m trying to get my career together and figure out what I’m doing with my life. She’s not going to school, she doesn’t have a set job; all she does is babysit.”
Jenna: “She’s a fucking bitch. She thinks she’s better than all of you guys. She thinks you all guys are degenerates and losers.”
Brianna: “I have bigger things. I’m smarter than her. I want to go home to my real family. The family that cares about me.”
Jenna: “Me? ME? Bri, are you fucking kidding me right now?” hair flip You think you’re better than everyone else in this house because you got a fucking job at the bakery. Congratulations. Your dad owns a bakery, that’s why you have a job. If my dad owned fucking something and wasn’t in jail, like fuck yeah, I’d have a set job.”
Confessional from Cohutta: “I swear on my life, these people are crazy.”
Jenna: “Her boyfriend is only back with her because his ex-girlfriend has short hair.”
And scene. Every editor who contributed to this masterpiece deserves a raise.
Lowlights: The Tony/Shane fight; basically every time Abram and Cara were on screen together; the aftershow with Cara, Abram, and Thomas, and in general the way MTV manipulated Cara for views; Cohutta’s early exit
Rookie of the season: It’s got to be Cousin! Cara and Jamie were dominant all season long, and Jamie secured the win on his rookie season. Honorable mention goes to Mitch Reid, for being the fastest puzzle solver maybe known to man, and generally outperforming everyone’s expectations.
Season rating: 11
S28: Rivals III
Winners: Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio and Sarah Rice
Runners-up: Vince Gliatta and Jenna Compono
3rd place: Devin Walker and Cheyenne Floyd
Debuts: Devin Walker, Cheyenne Floyd, Brandon Tindel, Briana LaCuesta, Nate Siebenmark, Amanda Garcia, Nelson Thomas, Ashley Mitchell
Best casting choice: I understand that Nicole Ramos is useless as a competitor on this show and only got as far as she did because Nany didn’t even try in their elimination… but I fucking love her and would advocate for her casting in every single future season.
Worst casting choice: Vince Gliatta. Bringing him once to serve as Bananas’ partner for Bloodlines was one thing, and that was bad enough, but bringing him back again? Really? And making him Jenna’s rival, of all people? Fuck that noise.
Most surprising casting choice: MTV brought Cheyenne Floyd three years removed from her AYTO season, ignoring a casting pool of girls that were both more physical and more dramatic. Devin and Cheyenne got a lucky break to get back into the game after an unsurprising early out, and were essentially carried to the final to give Sarah and Bananas an even better chance at an already-guaranteed victory. But damn, Chey is a cutie.
Koda’s most memorable moment: Dario’s repeated dumb-ness was on display ALL season long. (Never forget, Nany and West.)
Sloth’s most memorable moment: “Piss in your pants, bitch!” no context should be needed. If you know, you know.
Highlights: The soap bar challenge - Ashley had a legit orgasm and Simone ripped her butthole.
Lowlights: Jessica McCain being cast AGAIN; Brandon quitting because he missed his girlfriend; Leroy getting injured; Tony and Camila; Nate and Christina; the way Chey was treated in the lead-up to the final; Ashley getting slut-shamed after hooking up with Jamie (and for those in the back, what comments were made about Jamie?); Thomas getting stuck with Simone; Ashley getting stuck with Cory; Wes and Nany bringing life to the term “coming for the paycheck”; Oh God, someone stop me, because this entire season was a lowlight, and I’ll have to publish this as my next novel if I don’t wrap it up soon.
Rookie of the season: Oh my God, what an underwhelming group to choose from. I don’t want to choose Devin, but he’s the only one who actually seemed to give a shit about this show, and I have to admire his enthusiasm, no matter how much it annoys me.
Season rating: 15
S29: Invasion of the Champions
Winners: Chris “CT” Tamburello; Ashley Mitchell
Runners-up: Nelson Thomas; Camila Nakagawa
3rd Place: Cory Wharton; Nicole Zanatta
Debuts: Hunter Barfield, Anthony Bartolotte, Theo King-Bradley, Anika Rashaun, Kailah Casillas, Nicole Zanatta, Bruno Bettencourt, Sylvia Esrode
Best casting choice: SHANE LANDRUM. Love him or hate him, Shane went on to have major presence on this season and Final Reckoning, and proved that some returning vets can still be competitive threats.
Honorable mention: This season introduced us to the Youngbuck alliance, and all three had great showings.
Worst casting choice: LaToya. She’s a filler competitor. Contributed nothing.
Most surprising casting choice: MTV stays confusing with their AYTO selections… bringing Anthony Bartolotte, four years removed from his season, when he demonstrated neither physical prowess nor a flair for the dramatic… was perplexing, to say the least.
Koda’s most memorable moment: Ashley Kelsey kickboxing like a motherfucker!
(Okay, not really. Is this a shameless plug for our draft team? Duh.)
It’s actually Nelson screwing over Cory and Shane in the triple elimination. You’d think it would be easy for someone who’s actually dumb to ACT like he’s dumb, but instead he gave himself away IMMEDIATELY. We love to see it.
Sloth’s most memorable moment: Kailah wetting the bed, but more importantly Cory having the nerve to distance himself from her because of it… as we know, Cory would be lucky if the worst thing he’s done on TV to be pissing himself.
Highlights: Watching these people try to survive in the first shelter.
Lowlights: Camila’s fight with the rookies gave me a high level of secondhand embarrassment; the Bruno/Jenna rumor; Cory’s fuckboy antics
Rookie of the season: Nelson came out of nowhere to have a knockout rookie season. Conspiracy theories abound that he actually beat CT, but production screwed with the times for the better storyline. I’m not generally one for conspiracy theories on this show, so I’ll leave that to your imagination, but an impressive showing nonetheless.
edit - Fun fact: Nelson was not actually a rookie on Invasions. Disregard everything you just read.
Season rating: 14
S30: XXX: Dirty 30
Winners: Jordan Wisely; Camila Nakagawa
Runners-up: Derrick Kosinski; Cara Maria Sorbello
3rd place: Chris “CT” Tamburello; Tori Deal
Debuts: Derrick Henry, Tori Deal, Britni Thornton, Chris “Ammo” Ammon Hall
Best casting choice: Tori Deal. MTV had no idea what a steal they were getting here. The dirtiest players this season were the editors, giving Tori the shade ALL season long with her “I’m in love with my boyfriend!” comments every five seconds.
Worst casting choice: Am I allowed to say Aneesa?
No?
Listen, I know she was a monster competitor back in the day, but all we got during this season was her admittal that she was only there to collect an appearance check to pay for school (which I support, by the way!) and her hookup with Cory Wharton. I mean… CORY WHARTON. I know Aneesa has a ton of fans but I just don’t see what she contributes competition-wise anymore.
Copy and paste for Veronica. Of all the vets to bring back, production chooses these two? Repeatedly?
Most surprising casting choice: MTV brought Briana back after a short-lived stint on Rivals III, only to barely give her an entrance or introduction and send her home unceremoniously.
Koda’s most memorable moment: Jordan breaking his leg on the skydiving landing.
Sloth’s most memorable moment: The daily where they had to put the seasons in order, and Camila’s team kept slamming her into the pole repeatedly. Her meltdown was everything, and TJ laughing his ass off was the cherry on top.
Highlights: the elimination format; Ammo beating Tony in elimination
Lowlights: Camila’s racist tirade against Leroy coupled with a non-apology; the 14-part final/reunion; Ammo nearly dying against Jordan in elimination
Rookie of the season: Uh… I already had my love-fest for Tori, but she was clearly the best rookie this season. Queen of hooking up with the strongest guy in the house and fooling us all by actually going on to marry him. Strategy level 100. Britni could only dream.
Season rating: 6
S31: Vendettas
Winner: Cara Maria Sorbello
Runner-up: Zach Nichols
3rd place: Kyle Christie
4th place: Kailah Casillas
Debuts: Victor Arroyo, Eddie Williams, Alicia Wright, Melissa Reeves, Joss Mooney, Kayleigh Morris, Natalie Negrotti, Kyle Christie, Kam Williams
Best casting choice: Bringing Brits onto the show was the best casting choice MTV could have made.
Worst casting choice: The fact that MTV didn’t vet Eddie properly before bringing him on the show is honestly just confusing. I love that they had to edit him out of the show altogether. This season proved that users on our sub do more research about cast members than the actual producers.
Most surprising casting choice: Picking Victor as one of the first two Big Brother contestants to transfer over to The Challenge. He was a good competitor on BB, but his personality is clearly not suited for The Challenge. We need less kindness and more crazy. Devin Shepherd, anyone?
Koda’s most memorable moment: Tony downing a pound of mayo in .2 seconds flat. I have never been so impressed and disgusted at the same time.
Sloth’s most memorable moment: Brad and Britni hooking up in the background of someone fighting.
Highlights: The grenade for the elimination winner; Tony voting in Bananas and Devin beating him; Melissa taking advantage of the twist in the final by making Kam bury a log (that twist would’ve been totally useless without this moment); Melissa vs. Sylvia elimination; Tony’s face when he saw Bananas in the final
Lowlights: Only having one winner; Brad and Britni’s relationship; the girls throwing Kayleigh’s suitcase over the balcony. Also, bonus social media lowlight: Kayleigh outing Natalie on Twitter after the season aired.
Rookie of the season: Kyle. Not a single person took him seriously until the final. (Well, we didn’t take him seriously in the final either, but still.) He went from the class clown to a threat to win. Hooking up with Cara was questionable on both their parts, but it made Kyle a casting staple, so I’d call it worth it.
Season rating: 13
S32: Final Reckoning
Winners: Hunter Barfield (lol), Ashley Mitchell
Runners-up: Joss Mooney, Sylvia Elsrode
3rd place: Paulie Calafiore, Natalie Negrotti
4th place: Cara Maria Sorbello, Marie Roda
Debuts: Angela Babicz, Faith Stowers, Chuck Mowery, Jozea Flores, Paulie Calafiore, Da’Vonne Rogers
Best casting choice: Da’Vonne is confessional gold and at least a better competitor than we were expecting, which isn’t saying much, but it is something.
Worst casting choice: Chuck looked like he’d rather be literally anywhere else on earth. I wish Jozea had been literally anywhere else on earth.
Most surprising casting choice: MTV brought Chuck back five years after his mediocre season of AYTO, just to leave him buried underground and send him home the first chance they got.
Probably would’ve been better off staying in Hawaii, dude.
Koda’s most memorable moment: Is there any other answer besides Ashley taking the money? Joss immediately bursting into tears was also a special treat. And Hunter’s angry dance around the hot coals. This whole scene was a full 10/10.
Sloth’s most memorable moment: Oh my god, Kyle spinning Natalie in that hamster wheel… we didn’t see her for an entire minute and I fully believed I had just witnessed a death on national TV. Hearing her little “Paulie… help…” cries. I’m STILL haunted by this.
Oh, shoutout to Kam/Sylvia’s plan to get Angela and Faith into elimination… but why waste such a brilliant plan on two non-threatening rookies?!
Highlights: Cara and Marie drinking wine during the final; Joss and Sylvia sobbing after Ashley and Hunter win; “This guy’s belittled me, put me down, slut-shamed me, and threatened mine and my family’s life. I’m keeping the money.”
Lowlights: The redemption house twist is welcome to burn itself in hell; the birth of the Cara/Paulie/Kyle story that haunted us for two entire seasons; Pastagate; the most MORONIC display of loyalty by both Zach and Amanda by sacrificing themselves to save their alliances, only to be DQed for an injury resulting from that elimination
Rookie of the season: Paulie, Jozea and Da’Vonne spent most of the season in redemption, so I refuse to choose them. Chuck didn’t even get to play the actual game. So between Angela and Faith… I guess I’ll go with Angela? She polidicked with Bananas, so at least there was SOME strategy. And they got hosed with Kam’s brilliant political plan, even if it did end up being a waste.
Season rating: 11
S33: War of the Worlds I
Winner: Turabi “Turbo” Camkiran
2nd place: Theo Campbell
3rd place: Wes Bergmann
4th place: Natalie “Ninja” Duran
Debuts: Natalie “Ninja” Duran, Ashley Cain, Morgan Willett, Stephen Bear, Georgia Harrison, Theo Campbell, Julia Nolan, Turabi “Turbo” Camkiran, Dee Nguyen, João Paulo “JP” Andrade, Mattie Lynn Breaux, Chase McNary, Shaleen Sutherland, Zahida Allen, Gus Smyrnios, Josh Martinez
Best casting choice: God, this season was a goldmine for debuts. Bear, Georgia, Theo, Turbo, Dee, and Josh all went on to have major presence on War of the Worlds II. Every time I try to narrow down this list, I feel like I can’t cut anyone. It’s a 6-way tie.
Worst casting choice: Chase McNary. Have the producers watched the Bachelor? He was in the top 4 of his season and I STILL had to google him to remember which season he was on and what he looked like. There’s no shortage of batshit crazy in that franchise, and this is who we ended up with?!
Most surprising casting choice: This award goes to a collective group of people no one had ever heard of before they were cast. Looking at you, JP, Shaleen, and Zahida.
Koda’s most memorable moment: “If you want to go head-to-head, I’ll pick you tomorrow as my partner and I will go home because bitch, I’m rich!”
Sloth’s most memorable moment: Wes and Da’Vonne being paired up on the last daily, and Da’Vonne informing Wes that she has asthma as she is laughing so hard she’s crying.
Highlights: Wes teaching Dee to swim; the intensity of the final; Turbo and Ninja winning the challenge that she berated him over; Liz Nolan’s HARD fall; Paulie's self-destruction in the final purge
Lowlights: Only having one winner; the Nany/Georgia elimination that was actually Wes vs. Turbo; Cara complaining about the IV; Paulie/Cara/Kyle storyline taking over the entire season; Alan’s emotional exit speech had me in tears
Rookie of the season: Obviously Turbo. I’m not sure where the hell this dude came from, but he will be a threat to win every season he’s on, assuming he’s ever cast again; I am legitimately unsure if MTV will ever cast him with Jordan again, and if they have to choose, they’ll pick Jordan every time.
Season rating: 2
S34: War of the Worlds II
Winners: Chris “CT” Taumburello, Dee Nguyen, Jordan Wisely, and Rogan O’Connor
Runners-up: Cara Maria Sorbello, Natalie “Ninja” Duran, Paulie Calafiore, Zach Nichols
Debuts: Jenny West, Idris Virgo, Esther Falana, Nicole Bass, Sean Lineker, Tula “Big T” Fazakerley
Best casting choice: Putting Jordan and Tori on the season together.
Worst casting choice: Forcing us to endure another Cara and Paulie season together.
Most surprising casting choice: Idris LOOKS like he should be a good competitor, and Nicole is best friends with Georgia, but who the hell decided casting Esther was a good idea? I imagine a scorned intern put Esther’s picture on the whiteboard on her way to the boss’s office to quit. That is literally the only plausible explanation.
Koda’s most memorable moment: CT (FINALLY) turning on the U.S. alliance and putting Tori in the tribunal. Bonus points for “HA HA, your numbers!”
Sloth’s most memorable moment: Laurel and Josh conspiring to send Wes in gave me chills.
Highlights: Jordan and Tori winning four consecutive eliminations and making it to the final together; not dealing with the Kyle/Cara/Paulie triangle; Team U.S. completely falling apart in the final; Leroy doing Leroy things all season long; the Nany/Josh friendship; the Tori/Jenny friendship; the general cuteness of Tori Deal
Lowlights: THE FUCKING PUZZLE PURGE.
Tori’s first championship - Gone, but never forgotten.
Rookie of the season: Jenny West stands out from a pretty lackluster group of rookies. Nicole contributed nothing to the season, then quit her elimination against Jenny; Idris contributed nothing to the season, then lost unceremoniously to Theo; and Esther contributed nothing to the season, then “volunteered” herself for elimination because she knew her team would vote her in. We will very likely never see any of them again. Tragic.
Season rating: 9
We ranked the seasons by individually ranking them, then averaged the scores:
  1. Rivals
  2. War of the Worlds
  3. Rivals II
  4. Fresh Meat II
  5. Battle of the Exes II
  6. XXX: Dirty 30

If you actually read through all that, give yourself an award and bake a dozen cookies. Happy New Year, all!

Here is the list of all the 2019 albums I listened so far, and my appreciation of them.

Which album out in 2019 have I missed, that would make it to my 4-stars session?
(please note that when I rate an album only 1 star, It's not a judgement about the value of the artist. I admire all artist. It's just that I can't love everything and I wish them to find a big audience elsewhere).

5 stars:
  1. Devin Townsend - Empath (PROGRESSIVE METAL)
  2. Monkey3 - Sphere (PSYCHEDELIC ROCK)
  3. Tool - Fear Inoculum (POST METAL)
  4. Cheeto's Magazine - Amazingous (CROSSOVER PROG)
