The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Discussion (Spoilers)

For everything else that doesn't fit into the thousands of other threads we have about The Challenge, including dogs chasing their tails.

Might include spoilers. And dogs. And tails!

Re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Speculation (Spoilers)

Can I ask a question with absolutely no snarky meaning meant? I'm a long time lurker and finally dug out my old account because I want to post on the "Send Diem Your Love" thread, but also because I'm worried about her and would like to get as many updates/as much information as possible. If we aren't supposed to talk about it on this thread, is there somewhere else on the site we should? The General thread? Or is all talk banned?

If we aren't supposed to talk about it on this thread, is there somewhere else on the site we should? The General thread? Or is all talk banned?

Carpedatdiem expressed my thoughts perfectly. I think all of us are okay with staying on topic but at the same time I think it becomes easier to veer off topic when we don't have another place where we can get our thoughts out about this. I feel this is kind of a special situation too. It's not your average discussion about the challenge. I know we have a special thread to honor Diem and that thread should just stay with that, but perhaps there could be a second topic created where we could discuss our general thoughts on Diem and updates on her health. Perhaps we could open up the Diem Brown thread to talk about that. I don't think people are trying to purposely irritate anyone by going off topic. I just think the fans are needing an outlet and are upset about what happened with Diem and thoughts and feelings about that are just naturally going to flow out. In other words, I don't think the majority of people who go off topic on this particular subject are thinking to themselves how can we irritate the moderators, oh let's do or say this or that. It's also easy to forget what the rules are when people are upset and worried, another good reason to have a second thread in addition to the good wishes for Diem thread. Now if we set up a thread and were talking about Diem's health issues and people were randomly putting out information about her health with no basis in fact that was incorrect then I would think those posts should be deleted but if it's known that all we are doing is wondering about things and no one knows anything for sure then I think having those posts would be fine under the Diem thread as long as it was kept respectful, kind and considerate to her situation. Perhaps if this is not possible to do, post under the Diem thread, that someone from Vevmo could set up a separate message board for people where this type of discussion could be allowed.

I have to say that I love the name you gave the thread! We keep going round and round on these forums. LOL

Re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Speculation (Spoilers)

There is a twist this season ;) The eliminated people is accurate, but the order is not by what I heard...

Let me put it this way just because you're out of the game, doesn't mean you cannot make it to the final.

YOURE KILLING ME WITH THESE CLUES. I need more details !! Lol.

Re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Speculation (Spoilers)

Whaaaat?

We have people back in the US right? Are you saying it's possible for them to return?

Or perhaps once you're eliminated you can somehow play your way back in but then you can also be permanently eliminated.

Re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Speculation (Spoilers)

Maybe the final 3 vote for a team to come back for the final. Or maybe the teams who win the most eliminations come back?? Who knows!! But ahhhh! Loving all the changes, everything's so unpredictable.

Re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Speculation (Spoilers)

Yeah I have no idea what this means, other than I hope this doesn't somehow let Johnny Bananas lose and still win -_-

Re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Speculation (Spoilers)

The people back in the states, with their phones and with some kind of social media are not part of the twist no more.

So is it like a jury house in bb where the last 6 teams eliminated go to a separate house??

NO NO NO! Please don't let it be a Survivor type Exile Island.

Re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Speculation (Spoilers)

nvm officially confused lol

Re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Speculation (Spoilers)

Lol funny how I said this twist earlier and everyone thought it was dumb

Re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Speculation (Spoilers)

Everybody that got eliminated were part of the twist at some point, not just the final 6.

I might just be throwing darts here but it sounds like the teams that are home in the states had to face at least two different levels of elimination.

Re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Speculation (Spoilers)

My lips are sealed for now, but you're getting there :x

Maybe the dome losers go against that days challenge winners and if they beat them then they have a spot at the finale ??? Lol I'm going crazy

Just when I thought this season may not completely suck they add a BS twist.

I don't think it's bs if you get eliminated and then you battle another eliminated team and that gets you back into the game.

Re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Speculation (Spoilers)

I don't think it's bs if you get eliminated and then you battle another eliminated team and that gets you back into the game.

I do, you lose a elimination you deserve to go home. It's pointless to have to lose twice to go home.

Re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Speculation (Spoilers)

I do, you lose a elimination you deserve to go home. It's pointless to have to lose twice to go home.

But what if you're one of those teams that go in multiple times and get sent home before the finale, it'd be awesome to have an opportunity to come back.

Re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Speculation (Spoilers)

I agree completely with stefx23. That said, has there been any update? Has anyone been to see her? Any positive news would be most welcome. :)

re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Discussion (Spoilers)

LOL at me reading the title of this thread and thinking "Oh, that's a weird name for the challenge. I wonder what it means..." and then re-reading it and immediately facepalming.

Re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Speculation (Spoilers)

Whatever this twist is, I'm a fan of it. I can see it being a ratings booster for sure.

I doubt it will boost ratings. Redemption island did more damage to survivor than help it

Re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Speculation (Spoilers)

You don't know what they have to go through to get there though, maybe they have to do harder things. Maybe immediately in eliminations... who knows. I have no problem with it, because when people are gunning for you to go home and you make one mistake during the elimination... It's gives them a chance.

I know it's a stupid twist, why reward people for losing a elimination? That's just pointless

re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Discussion (Spoilers)

Bacchus, thanks for setting up this topic and moving my post over. I think all of us really appreciate it.

Re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Speculation (Spoilers)

If it's anything like how I Love Money did it on season 1 it may be good.

Debatable. There is one season that greatly benefitted from RI (had more loved ones swapped, it would have been even more so).

The Challenge is dying. It needs as many twists and turns as possible. You guys need to be a bit more optimistic.

As long as the twists arent pointless and don't reward losers.
Survivor I'm fine with redemption island because they get voted off instead of losing eliminations.

You're really stuck on this huh? haha Well technically they get voted into the dome and just lose either out of luck or because they aren't good. If they stay while still being eliminated, that shows that they probably made a mistake that got them eliminated anyway haha.

re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Discussion (Spoilers)

What were we discussing in the other thread before some of our posts were moved over here? Let me think...oh yeah, we were giving our opinions on how MTV will handle the first episode of Battle of the Exes 2. I was just saying that I would hope it would be done in a classy way and I believe I said something like if CT were asked to give a confessional right after she was taken to the hospital that I would be wanting to say "F you" to the producers. I'm sure it killed him that he couldn't go with her when she was airlifted out and had to wait that extra day. I'm sure he was worried sick.

Carpe, I've really been wanting to hear some good news as well. I'm wondering what stage the cancer is in now. I think her starting chemo sooner rather than later would be for the best but they have to wait until she is stable, I realize that. Poor Diem having to go through this all again. Her soul must get so weary of it!

Re: The Challenge: Summer 2014 - Speculation (Spoilers)

I think you guys will like this twist I personally love it
