CT is better than Landon at some things and vice versa, but when it comes to final challenges Landon is greater than the rest. Landon's pace is by far the best, he can run a final faster than everyone due to the combination of things he is great at.
[QUOTE=Nightwolf;280046]Svetlana beat Kina without a DQ in Push Me.[/QUOTE] Because Kina fell to the floor and cried. If you keep pushing the beam, the flag will rip out. Svetlana and Brad kept shaking as Beth and CT were trying to unhook the flag.
[QUOTE=TheFeedMachi;280030]I don't see how he can keep arguing CT as the best competitor when he hasn't won a Challenge yet. He may be the best athlete but he is far from the best competitor.[/QUOTE] I'm not gonna say he's the best because I don't think he is, but I do think he is up there. To be honest, he only lost the Inferno 2 and the Gauntlet 3 because his teammates weighed him down. He got kicked off of the Inferno 3 and The Duel 2 for fighting, and he lost the duel on a total fluke where he ripped the flag off instead of unhooking it, but he destroyed Brad in that elimination. In Rivals, he just barely lost and it was partially Adam's fault. So his ******* streak in his first few seasons came back to bite him in the ***.
CT is a tremedous competitor, and whether or not he's better than everyone else is really undeterminable. In my opinion, Landon is the best, then to CT, Alton, Darrell, and Mark. But I think it's ridiculous to say that because somebody doesn't think that CT is the best, means that they don't know the Challenges well enough.
It's all subjective. We all value things differently. Some may prefer CT's brute strength over Landon's endurance and vice versa.
CT would have won the Inferno 2 if his team was the Good Guys team. Landon would have won the Duel 2 if his shoulder wasn't separated, and instead of Brad his opponent was Casey. CT would have won the Gauntlet 3 if the producers thought it was time for Brad, Paula, and Robyn to win their first challenge. Johnny would have won his Gulag if the point was to reach the barrel the fastest. Derrick would have won the Duel if the winner was based on who could be bitter about something for the next six years. Wes and Kenny would have won Rivals if the length of the head starts where decided by soccer kicks. Real World would have won the Gauntlet if they had Peter Parker instead of Coral on their team. Seriously these so and so only lost because of so so arguments are so moot, these challenges play out the way they do for a reason. CT didn't lose the Inferno 2 just because of scenario x, and even if he did what's the point of using that reasoning? Take Tina and Tonya off the bad ***** and put Robyn and Shavonda back, cool now we'd just be making the argument the only reason Landon lost was because of Shavonda and Robyn. I just don't see the point honestly.

I agree with most of this, although I usually say top 2 Landon and C.T. without saying who number 1 is, that's how close they are IMO.
[QUOTE=DomDom7;280168]Very well said! I agree with most of this, although I usually say top 2 Landon and C.T. without saying who number 1 is, that's how close they are IMO.[/QUOTE] I rewatch challenges on a regular basis, and every week or so, I change my mind on who the best is. So I wouldn't doubt that by next week I will have rewatched like 3 more seasons and be convinced that somebody else is the best. When I finished watching The Gauntlet 2 I was positive that Alton was the best... because I'm pretty sure he literally flew to the top of the cargo nets in the "Capture the Flag" Gauntlet.
[QUOTE=Superboy;279990]That's because you don't know competitors. [/QUOTE] But I do... [QUOTE=V1man;280013]Of course, you've taken Beth's statement completely out of context -- and it was said in a promotional show by an actress who is great at memorizing scripts and cashing the checks for it. [/QUOTE] [QUOTE=V1man;280023] As for Beth, she will speak for herself. When she calls me back, I'll post her reply, assuming she stops laughing long enough to offer a reply. [/QUOTE] And she said, "What? That was like a decade ago. Whatever I said doesn't mean much (especially out of context)." Nothing said on a reality show should ever be cited as "evidence" of anything. Who could possibly care about that?" (She was mildly amused by the attempt to rank anyone from the challenges.)
If you could choose to be in any elimination round (Gauntlet, Inferno, Exile, Duel, etc.) what would you choose? What do you feel you would personally perform the best at? For me, I'd be most confident competing in any of the following: Beach Brawl (Gauntlet 2) Pole Wrestle (Duel) Sliders (Gauntlet 3) Back Off (Duel 2) Handcuffs (Cutthroat) Rag Doll (Ruins) Muay Thai (Ruins)

[QUOTE=Debut Album;83067]Which challenge intro was your Favorite?[/QUOTE] The Ruins because the champions all wore Muay Thai outfits, and I love Muay Thai. Honorable Mention: The Island because of Shinedown playing the intro music.
Jersey Shore is basically a Real World so they should let them join in to bring in ratings and show people what real athleticism is all about. Theyre no joke, they gym all the time. I know Id be scared if they showed up.

I would love to watch CT destroy Ronnie in something like Push Me.
[QUOTE=ballinbroken;280262]I wouldn't be able to take them seriously if they were in a challenge. I would love to watch CT destroy Ronnie in something like Push Me.[/QUOTE] They would lose so bad. Probably 0 strategic skills and they don't seem too athletic.

You can toss any idiot in the gym (or give him a syringe) for an extended period of time. Will he get big? Yeah...but that doesn't mean he'll be athletic. I'd take even the lower level challenge competitors in almost any head to head competition over all four of the Jersey Shore kids any day of the week. I would, however, pay to see Laurel or Evelyn do some kind of Pole Wrestle or Handcuff type game with Snooki.
A good matchup would be: Snooki vs. Casey

The JS casts demands way too much money and would never do a show that they weren't guaranteed money.
If Jersey Shore was on with RR/RW I wouldn't watch. I'm suffering from JS overload and I don't even watch the trashy show. And being fit is just half the part of being on The Challenge because look at BigE who made it as far as he did on some of them. They would suck big time.
I'd rather walk on glass than watch JS on a Challenge.
[QUOTE=Challenge_Fan;279924]It was Leroy and Adam, not Leroy and Mike, Adam wasn't sent home until later that night. And the Captain's Chair challenge, where Cara's electrocution turned Kenny on, was on the Inferno 3[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=Nostalgic;279926]Tori wasn't on The Ruins. Also what do you mean about saving Adam?[/QUOTE] Woops sorry for the mistakes guys. I unfortunately can't edit it anymore, but thanks for the corrections! And Challenge_Fan and Youssarian you are right, I was referring to the Gauntlet 3.

It would be really stupid if the Jersey Shore people got on here. The Challenges are not Intended for them. Not now and Not ever. It's a Bad Idea and will never work. I thought people would stop with this. Besides we already have The Fresh Meat and that's bad enough. I don't want to see anyone else that wasn't on The Real World or Road Rules on here.
I feel like rivals ended such a long ago , I am ready for the next challenge. Even though i know they are not going to film it till idk when -__-
I was just kidding, I thought people would be able to see the sarcasm...
[QUOTE=kyled13;280316]I was just kidding, I thought people would be able to see the sarcasm...[/QUOTE] Oh you were Kidding? Oh yeah sorry about that. I'm one of those people that can't see sarcasm on the web so forgive me.
[QUOTE=Challenge_Fan;280243]If you could choose to be in any elimination round (Gauntlet, Inferno, Exile, Duel, etc.) what would you choose? What do you feel you would personally perform the best at?[/QUOTE] My first pick would definitely be dead man's drop from gauntlet 1. I could probably beat most of the men (maybe except for Adam and some other light guys). My second pick would be the sliders from Gauntlet 3. And for the last pick I would probably choose an exile (not from FM 1 as these were too short).
I see Jeff from FM2 all the time at school, don't forsee him taking a semester off to do a challenge, I think he's close to graduating. Don't know if people even want him back, Noor was the only gem of FM2. But I feel like I would react differently to Kenny for instance than a guy who did one challenge and got eliminated quick.

He didn't seem all that bad).

CT has great endurance along with Darrell who kept up with Landon(and was ahead of him at times watch the episode on Youtube) on the Inferno 2 final mission.....not to mention his performance in the Gauntlet 1 final mission. Darrell doesn't get tired in final missions he's out for that money! Also, Jersey Shore castmembers on the challenges would make the Fresh Meat concept look like nothing.

Darrell could've been ahead of Landon for a few minutes (while maybe Landon was ahead the rest of the time but wasn't shown on camera), that doesn't prove anything. And I don't think there was anything special about Darrell's performance in Gauntlet I final. I would choose Landon before CT. And you may be right, maybe CT has better endurance, and maybe he could win a challenge with Landon in it, but only if it's a Duel format. But on team challenges, nothing helps better in a final than your teammate's voice that encourages you no to stop and move on. And I doubt that CT would be the level-headed person in a team (seeing how Gauntlet 3 went). That is also the reason why Carley won FM2. Had CT been her partner I wouldn't be sure if Carley would've won because he would've yelled at her which doesn't make things better.
