Go ahead and voice your displeasure or excitement over in the [URL="http://vevmo.com/f187/the-challenge-spring-2011-speculation-spoilers-5549/"]Challenge 2011 Speculation[/URL] thread. This thread will remain locked for my sanity and yours.

Bumped for update.

Oh by the way, to answer all of the "but they're still tweeting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" posts...due to Snowpocalypse 2011, the cast departures from their home airports were scattered anywhere from Monday to Wednesday. While I believe the original intention was to depart earlier in the week, after a day of rest, I am fairly confident that the cast departed (or will be departing) Miami sometime today.

Updated.

Bump for update.

To put an end to the speculation...

Well that was fast. Perhaps a little too fast...

[="Red"]1. Adam Royer[/]

If you have a spoiler for me regarding a potential elimination, please send it to me via PM. It must be a screen shot or I will not post it.

Looks like some of you paid attention in geology class (namely SeanDaniel, yankeegurl93, and CzarEric).

Just a quick reminder: if you have a spoiler regarding an elimination, PLEASE send it to me via PM in the form of a screenshot. Do not post it in the speculation thread: there are people on this challenge who have someone updating their social networking sites and therefore, a tweet may not always be accurate.

Now, on to the good stuff:

I received a PM from VCR14, violetxdaisy, d2626 and Mars81T regarding our next victim. Updates from the phone are generally a great giveaway:

[URL="http://vevmo.com/vbimghost.php?do=displayimg&imgid=9134"][/URL]

1. Adam Royer
2. Aneesa Ferreira

via Meelz, jr588, BillyBear231, and Morris1721:

1. Adam Royer
2. Aneesa Ferreira
[="Red"]3. Tyrie Ballard[/]

1. Adam Royer
2. Aneesa Ferreira
3. Tyrie Ballard
[="Red"]4. Davis Mallory[/]

My apologies, I don't remember who sent me the PM about this (I want to say it was SPK?) but:

[URL="http://vevmo.com/vbimghost.php?do=displayimg&imgid=9191"][/URL]

1. Adam Royer

5. Camila Nakagawa
6. Brandon Nelson

And thanks to an anonymous email:

And while no one has been able to actually prove this via a screen shot like I asked, I've been getting tons of PMs and off-topic posts about:

1. Adam Royer
2. Aneesa Ferreira

4. Davis Mallory
5. Camila Nakagawa

Or maybe, they're still in Costa Rica and there is no enemies theme. That's my opinion and unless I see evidence to the contrary, I won't be changing it.

While it seems extremely obvious to me that the makeup of the cast implies some sort of rivals theme...are you starting to see a trend yet?

Bumped for update regarding cast replacement.

I've had my eye on Michael for a couple of weeks now. It appears as though the Vegas cast was given the "have someone else run your account while you're gone" talk. They're going to look mighty silly in a few months.

While someone has been updating his Twitter account fairly regularly and engaging in conversations with friends and fellow cast members, he hasn't had an update from his phone in at least two weeks. Add that to the fact that Dustin has apparently been adding pictures/videos to his Twitter regularly, and that Brandon is following him and Leroy on Twitter (a random pair to follow), the signs become stronger.

This is what gave it away to me:

[URL="http://vevmo.com/vbimghost.php?do=displayimg&imgid=9254"][/URL]

Yes, it is from the web, but it is around the same time a replacement would have flown out to Costa Rica. For those of you who aren't familiar with that phrase, it means "I came, I saw, I conquered".

So there you have it: Mike Ross replaced Adam Royer, who was kicked off for getting in a fight. He will be partnered with fellow Vegas cast mate Leroy Garrett. And as far as I can tell...as of the most recent elimination, they are still in Costa Rica.

On another note: four people are possibly very much richer right now (or could be some time in the next 24 hours). The remainder will start to pop up over the next few days: please don't send me any more "I think ______ is home" screen caps.

It would appear as though the curse has been broken.

Probable female winners of the 2011 Spring Challenge: Evelyn Smith and Paula Meronek

Thank you to those of you who have been very patient regarding my delay of revealing the mystery woman (to the rest of you: hopefully after reading this you will go away). She was hard to address for a few reasons:

1. Everyone sent me 238476234 PMs about who they thought it was, even after I clearly stated I knew who it was.
2. The mystery woman is not extremely active on social networking.
3. I cannot out someone with no signs pointing toward them being on a challenge.

So...with that being said, I've finally gotten a break. The one site that this person is active on (Facebook) is not viewable by anyone who is not friends with them. This person also does not add "fans" or random people (smart girl). I had to go through mutual friends in order to confirm that this person was on the challenge. When Camila returned from the challenge and added a bunch of new friends, I noticed one person in particular that stood out to me. And after seeing Wes pop up with some new friends, the evidence became stronger.

Therefore, after much (impatient) waiting, I give you the mystery female:

[URL="http://vevmo.com/vbimghost.php?do=displayimg&imgid=9397"][/URL]

Robin Hibbard, Real World: San Diego

...Unfortunately, she didn't last long. She was paired with Aneesa and was one half of the first female pair to go home.

[URL="http://vevmo.com/vbimghost.php?do=displayimg&imgid=9399"][/URL]

In addition - there are a few things I know, and a few things I don't, so let me be clear:

- I do not know who was eliminated first, women or men. I do know that women and men were not eliminated on the same day. Evidence leads me to believe that women were eliminated first. But without being sure, the elimination order looks something like this (allowing for sexes to be interchanged):

Adam Royer

1. Aneesa Ferreira
Robin Hibbard

Davis Mallory
Tyrie Ballard

2. Camila Nakagawa
Theresa Gonzalez

Brandon Nelson
Ty Ruff

3. Katelynn Cusanelli
Sarah Rice

Evan Starkman
Nehemiah Clark

4. Jasmine Reynaud
Jonna Mannion

???
???

- I do not know when Adam was kicked off. Evidence would lead me to believe that it was sometime before the challenge started, but it could have been after the first challenge. With the delays in production, it's hard to tell when they actually started filming.

- There were three teams in the finals, which was held in Argentina. By process of elimination, the six teams were:

Evelyn Smith / Paula Meronek (winners)
Jenn Grijalva / Mandi Moyer
Cara Maria Sorbello / Laurel Stucky

John Devenanzio / Tyler Duckworth
Leroy Garrett / Michael Ross
Kenny Santucci / Wes Bergmann

No, I do not know who won the male side. I also cannot tell you who finished second in the female side. And no, I do not know why production felt it necessary to travel to a completely separate country to film a final. I can only hope it was to increase "epicness" and that we will not be let down as viewers. Based on the last few final challenges, I can assure you it was probably grueling and challenging.

- I do not know anything about how eliminations went, how they were structured, who was in them, etc so please do not ask.

-One can only hope that Sinclair will be proud of how these rivals (not frenemies so please stop using that word for the love of God) performed.

I have been hearing a lot of conflicting stories regarding who the last male team in the finals was. I am positive that Johnny, Tyler, Leroy, and Michael were all in the final. I am doing everything I can to try and figure out who the last team was.

Until then, I apologize for the inconvenience.

After hearing from four independent and trustworthy sources, I can say with about 100% confidence that Johnny Devenanzio and Tyler Duckworth are your male winners for this challenge.

1. Aneesa Ferreira
Robin Hibbard

Davis Mallory
Tyrie Ballard

2. Camila Nakagawa
Theresa Gonzalez

Brandon Nelson
Ty Ruff

3. Katelynn Cusanelli
Sarah Rice

Evan Starkman
Nehemiah Clark

4. Jasmine Reynaud
Jonna Mannion

I've gotten a bit of clarification regarding the official name thanks to the "teaser" (if you can even call it that) that was just posted on MTV's website.

The official title is The Challenge: Rivals.

The elimination arena is called The Jungle.

I didn't think MTV would show it in their trailer, but they did.

have you guys seen the new trailer???? LOOKS HOTT !!!!!

At 1:51 of this trailer, you have the answer a few of you have been waiting for: Adam punches Ty.

As alluded to in the trailer, I can tell you the first male elimination:

[="Gray"]Davis / Tyrie[/] eliminated by [="Gold"]Kenny / Wes[/]

Based on this picture, posted by Adam himself:

As well as this screenshot from the trailer:

It can be inferred that Adam did indeed take part in at least one mission, and that he and Leroy were the [="Brown"]brown[/] team. So, the first mission is the one where people are jumping off a platform doing who knows what.

The most probable scenario is that the punch with Ty took place after the voting for the first mission (when everyone who isn't participating in the elimination gets tanked).

As for Leroy seen in other missions wearing a red shirt:

The logical explanation is that he and Mike switched to the [="Red"]red[/] team after Mike's arrival.

Oh, this?

Definitely from inside the Jungle.

1. [="DarkRed"]Aneesa / Robin[/] eliminated by [="Purple"]Evelyn / Paula[/]*

2. [="Grey"]Davis / Tyrie[/] eliminated by [="Gold"]Kenny / Wes[/]*

(* denotes last place team in that mission, automatically put up for elimination)

Happy Friday...

I think what I'll do is give two away every so often...then before the premiere, I'll answer as many questions as possible. So feel free to shoot questions my way - if I can answer it, I will.

3. [="DarkGreen"]Camila / Theresa[/] eliminated by Cara Maria / Laurel*

4. [="Maroon"]Brandon / Ty[/] eliminated by [="Gold"]Kenny / Wes[/]*

Keep sending in your questions, people! I'll be answering them the night before the premiere.

5. [="Gray"]Katelynn / Sarah[/] eliminated by [="Blue"]Jasmine / Jonna[/]

6. [="DarkGreen"]Evan / Nehemiah[/]* eliminated by [="Blue"]Adam / CT[/]

Still taking questions for Tuesday.

7. [="Navy"]Jasmine / Jonna[/] eliminated by Cara Maria / Laurel

8. [="blue"]Adam / CT[/]* eliminated by Johnny / Tyler
