It's funny. I remember watching their season. It's weird that they're all now "vets." I'd still consider the true vets of the show to have originally aired their seasons prior to say, 2002. Too bad that was 10 years ago and most of them have probably moved on from their lives. Guess I'll have to accept these people as the new Challenge vets! I didn't used to like Melinda at all, but since divorcing Danny, I do like her more. It'll be an interesting dynamic to see them working on a team together. I wonder how the challenges will be formatted with them being the only 2 person team (for now anyway).
[QUOTE=Debut Album;319343]Well that's a good reason..But seeing as he wasn't there all that long he probably didn't get paid all that much anways.[/QUOTE] You get the same stipend, no matter how long you last. Its not like Big Brother where its by the week.
[QUOTE=Gucci Mane;319346]You get the same stipend, no matter how long you last. Its not like Big Brother where its by the week.[/QUOTE] Oh really? Though they did it diffrently.
[QUOTE=Gucci Mane;319346]You get the same stipend, no matter how long you last. Its not like Big Brother where its by the week.[/QUOTE] You only get the appearance fee if it is your 3rd+ challenge. If it is your 1st or 2nd challenge, you get paid weekly. Lacey barely got paid anything to go Turkey whereas Wes made the same amount he would have made if he was the Final person to be eliminated before the Final.
With Wes and Lacey gone. It's gonna be interesting to see what Danny and Melinda do with just the two of them..IMO they should be alright for now mainly because it's just the two of them and it's not like either of them are top competitors so I think they'll become an afterthought.

But I could be wrong.

I thought Evan said on Derrick's pod that they all get paid the same since Rivals.

[QUOTE=TheFeedMachi;319365]Evan also lies a ton.[/QUOTE] Kind of a silly thing to lie about. Jenn also said on one of the Rivals podcasts something about her having to do with getting the pay scale changed and Evan said that the two of them and Kenny held out before Rivals unless they got more money so they changed the entire pay system to where everyone makes the same. Which is also why there are no more prizes.

I am sooo sad to see Lacey go! She is one of my favorite Real Worlders. But I can say she at least did decent on her first challenge. Though I think next time she needs to come in more athletic.
I really hope Danny wins a mission or beats somebody before he gets sent home, it's about time he does something and this time he can't complain about his partner because it's his ex, they know each other well and how to make it happen :P
[QUOTE=TSPKM2;318421]I believe both Tonya and Evelyn beat her...and probably Susie and Paula as well. And she really was a poor competitor...go watch the Gauntlet 3.[/QUOTE] The only girl who had a better time than her was Evelyn, which is exactly why the Good Guys considered her to be one of their strongest girl right after the first mission. The order from who did the best to worst was Evelyn, Rachel, Janelle, Tonya, Paula, Susie with Jenn/Colie/Aneesa/Cara all DQing. I have no commentary of her performance on the Gauntlet 3. My comment was only in regards to the Inferno 3.
Going back and watching old challenges Wes has lost a lot of weight since the Duel & Ruins or is it just me?
[QUOTE=jones10389;319543]Going back and watching old challenges Wes has lost a lot of weight since the Duel & Ruins or is it just me?[/QUOTE] It isn't just you. He has lost a lot of weight since then.

Wes - one of my favorites, endlessly entertaining. He may have gotten a bit rude with Eric in the elimination but you know what? He's right. Eric can't even climb a rope. Sorry, but it's true. Lacey - like her, good to see her again, even if it's only for one episode. Melinda - I don't dislike her, and there's nothing really wrong with her, I just find her kind of boring. She doesn't gossip, doesn't add drama, avoids conflict...yawn. Danny - I find him likable when he's being real, which he seems to have done in the last couple challenges. I don't like him so much when he's being a poser, like how he was on earlier challenges.
I really don't think Wes cares at all. He used to but since he lost on Fresh Meat 2 he doesn't work out for Challenges, shows up just not caring. I'm pretty sure on twitter he said he was 160lbs for this challenge and had not worked out in over a year.
I think Wes' best shape was on The Ruins. Few days ago he tweeted that he didn't work out for 400 days. I believe it's true.
I love whenever Danny talks about himself and Wes like they're Lebron and D-Wade or something. It's like at best Wes is Mario Chalmers and Danny is Dexter Pittman.
I thought he looked really big on rivals, mainly just his biceps. I dont get how he can get big and small so fast, it could also be the time between challenges, you dont really realize rivals filmed over a year and a half ago. But still I'm guessing it would take you a few months to get ripped, I dont really know, I'm no body builder. He seems to work out then completely stop. On exes he wasnt that buff either but still kinda in shape, may have been leftover from rivals but now hes really tiny lol. But if he did use steroids then why did he just stop now. If you use them moderately theyre actually safe. Maybe hes gotten too lazy to even lift a few weights, if youre not gonna bother looking good for the camera and not gonna bother taking it seriously then stop coming! But I'm sure he wants his appearance fee but hes taking someone elses spot. W/e I still find him entertaining but he needs to get in shape. HA and I just realized what his outfit from day one reminded me of, he was dressed like Gus that real professional drug dealer from breaking bad from the white guy version of him :P
I can see how Wes gets big than back to normal. I sometimes stop the gym for a couple of months and the same thing happens. If you go regularly for like even 2-3 months and you are athletic, your muscles will show obviously, I guess this challenge he didn't pump as much. More importantly, am I the only one in love with Melinda? hah ...
I love Melinda, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed in her after tonight. I'm always trying to defed her as a competitor because I don't think she has really gotten a good go at these things, but after this challenge...I just don't think she is that good of a competitor :/ and it makes me sad :(

I've never thought Melinda was that good. I think it was always a fair point that her two one on one losses were to good competitors (Tori, Emily), but she's never stood out on any daily challenge. Just cause you're in shape doesn't make you athletic. The Stolp-Jamieson clan is now 0-10 in eliminations.
I didn't think she did bad, TBH. She's just unlucky when it comes to these things. :/

She's there for eye candy. Their whole alliance got screwed because Wes didn't come through in the challenge. It's unfortunate, one of the reasons for watching was because Melinda is so hot, not like I'll stop watching it, but it was definitely more entertaining (probably wrong choice of words) when she's on it.
