The Challenge: Favorite Things

Daaamn Debut! Back at it again with the thread making!

LOL that was bad I know. Just wanted to use that.

Hey y'all. This thread is going to be my FAVORITE things about The Challenge. Seasons, Castmembers, missions..all on the table. This thread is pretty much the opposite of the Burn Book bascially. If you ever wondered what and whom I actually LIKE about this show than this thead is the place to find out! As in the burn book you all can make your own entries as well.

Let me get started off.

BATTLE OF THE SEASONS 2.

Seriously. I fucking LOVED this season. It was such a breath of fresh air after having to deal with the usual asshole regulars JEK/Paula etc. It focused on the newer seasons of RW and It allowed a new group of challengers to shine and have their moment.

The missions were also good. They were less extreme and a couple of them were fun to watch too. Missions like Don't Cross Me, Abandon Ship and Insane Games are things that I can easily see being done back in the golden era.

Most of the Drama was fun to watch. That fight between Dustin and Frank will never not be halarious. YOU WANNA GET STREET BITCH!?!?! Perfection. Speaking of Dustin this was the season where my baby got to shine, But I'm going to make a seperate entry on him later so I'll get to all the reasons why I love Dustin.

Vegas, Cancun, St Thomas, were all my favorite teams. Really wish Vegas won.

I liked how the eliminations were done this season. 4 categories of eliminations and you had to choose one. You also couldn't pick the same one. I do think this could've been better had all the eliminations had all been a different game each round like say for instance in the first round the physical elimination will be hall brawl and then the second round it'd be balls in then the next round it'd be something else. That would've been cool to see.

This season is Also Nany's best challenge showing IMO. She was fun, likable, and stood up to Frank. I wish she made it to the end because I felt like she deserved it.

It's really too bad this season wasn't well recieved because if it was I think this would've started a new golden era of this show and it'd be in a much better place than it is now. 

I really wish a Seasons 3 happens in the future because it really was a damn good format.

Oh and one more thing..Marie fucking slayed this season. We NEED that girl back on the show.

 

 

DA giving this board life right now!

Seasons was great.  It makes me miss Frank.

Don't forget the "fight" between Robb and Derek where Robb ripped his shirt off lmao.

Oh yeah..that fight was halarious. 

Oh and expect Frank to pop up at some point too.

-I loved Team Cancun's vibe. They were all best friends and it made them click perfectly.

-Two vegas teams would have been awesome but the one they got was cool too.

-I liked brooklyn's under dog story.

-San Diego was AWFUL I hated everything about them except frank.

-Marie is a true queen nobody could touch her greatness this season

-Fresh meat team was a stupid choice I'm mad Sydney DQ'd.

Makes me want to rewatch Seasons. Since I skipped Rivals 3, I miss the challenge

Oh and the intro was everything! I love it so much.

New to challenge threads but that intro was the only thing I hated about that season! That thing was craaazy to me!! It was some drunk white dude yelling out different cities and EVERYBODY LOOKED BUSTED LMAO in that intro. Other than that I LOVED this season so much. Big easy weirded me out but yep this season was liiiit 

Oh and the intro was everything! I love it so much.

I forgot to mention this! This was one of the last good intros this show had IMO.

Theres so much I love about this season I keep forgetting.

Seeing Lacey again and having an episode with all her hilarious one liners was amazing. Too bad they'll probably never cast her.

Lacey was amazing too. I wish she got to stick around longer. Would've been interesting to see how she handled the game.

That Eric "fresh meat baby" hunted me days Biggrin

"I think they're kissing penises"-lacey

I loved the way Molds found out as soon as they left the country it has something to do with Seasons, it was like same day they left.

2002's season was epic and 2012's was great sadly the numbers, but it was refreshing as fuck. Would've loved that Team Sydney and Team Hollywood instead of Team Austin (Sorry Lacey and Wes).

Next Entry.

DUSTIN.

I wasn't that fond of him on RW but he shined on The Challenges..well at least Battle of the Seasons. He's emotional, a little bit crazy and wasn't afraid to stand up to people. As I stated in the Seasons 2 entry his fight with Frank will always be halarious. His Friendships with Alton and Nany were a treat to watch(his friendship with Nany is one of my all time favorite relationships in this franchise). His fued with Trishelle was also everything! I will never forget him saying "HAVE NIGHTMARES!" after Alton/Nany lost their Arena. He was about to leave the show too given that he just couldn't take Trishelle anymore but thanks to a little talk with Chet he stuck around and worked with the girl. And they were rewarded by coming in 2nd place! Its not first but it's something. Then later on Exes 2 he thought that people didn't like him because of his Porn past but that wasn't the case. I think that he's just a bit different than alot of guys that go on these shows and we all know how people are toward those whom are different than them.

Going back to Seasons 2..I really liked how he handled Frank bringing up his porn past. It showed that he really owned it and is at peace with it and it made me like him even more. It was something I wish he did on RW.

And there's the porn..The oh so hot porn. I don't get why he was ever ashamed of that because honestly that shit was a work of art if you ask me.

Dustin is such a great character and it sucks that he keeps being eliminated so early. Because as Seasons 2 proves he can bring so much to the shows. I'll even go out on a limb and say that he could rival some of the old-school people in terms of character. I really hope he returns to the shows and make it far..It'll be great to see him come back and maybe win one of these things.

You're like fucking DJ Khaleed with these new threads. Another one

Yuck at Dustin

Seasons was everything because of Queen Marie and Nany's debut.  ✌

exes 2 had decent one too

I really consider BOTS, BOTE/2, and BOTB, intro the same since those are the only recent seasons that actually show the teams/pairs. I liked them all. But I still have yet to fully watch bots. It just doesn't interest me.

I don't blame you especially with that dumbass intro but the 2002 season was miles better. However 2012 did have slightly better moments.

And to the person who said team Hollywood and Sydney don't forget team Road Rules. And I agree as far as Lacey is concerned. That seriously ticked me off; she was awesome but not as messy as she was in 2005 which was refreshing.

Next Entry.

CORY.

Much like Dustin, Cory was someone I didn't have the highest opinion of on his RW season but whom I loved on The Challenge. He's not terribly entertaining but he's a good presence on the show I think. He has a great relationship with his cousin Mitch(They live together now you know) him tearing up a bit when Mitch said he looked up to him was a very cure and touching moment and shows how that he has love for his cousin. He also wanted Mitch to have a great time on the show too it seems. They both kicked ass on Bloodlines and made it to the end.  He also says shit like Turn up! and We all gon eat! He's very much into the rap culture clearly. Other people may think it's basic but I find it cute and endearing. He may come off assy sometimes(the whole Aneesa situation and the whole Dario thing on Rivals 3) but overall I think the guy is a good egg.

Also..the boy is SMOKING HOT! He is one of the hottest pieces of ass this show has ever seen. I was so Jealous of Aneesa that she got to hit that shit. I'm also kinda hating on Cheyenne that she's hitting that now too(he can do better though).

So yeah...Cory is one of my faves. one of my Kings if you will. And I can't wait to see him on more challenges.

THE FREE AGENTS FORMAT.

I personally think that this is one of the best formats this show has ever done. It thrives on unpredicatbility and if ANY show needs a shot of unpredictable in it it's this one. Having the cast randomly be in indivitual/pairs/team at challenges gives way for different winners and strategies to be played. Then there's the draw..where anyone could go in elimination at any time. It was a great Idea and I'm kinda glad it was brought back for Rivals 3.(though it could've been done differently there). But I do think the kill cards could've looked better though. Also, if they're going to vote people straight into elimination it should be guys voting in guys and girls voting in girls. Would make the game way more interesting and people would be able to play their own games.

But overall it was a good ass format and I really hope a Free Agents 2 happens at some point.

 

I'm using him as an example: But my favorite things (that I miss) are intense, crazy male personalities.. The guys now a days are very blah and typical. 

Another great example: Adam Royer

MTV CHALLENGE RIVALS ADAM PUNCHES TY

ADAM! Thanks for reminding me of him. I might do an entry on him.

Adam Royer <3

The males? The Challenge is bland lol 

Isn't Dustin the guy who sexually assaulted a woman in public and thought he could get away with it because he's a Z-list reality star?
