Great Entries! I love Landon and Issac as well.

Dan was great. I do miss Road Rules being represented on these shows. Abe seems to be the only Road Ruler MTV calls anymore. 

DAN(NORTHERN TRAIL)

Love this guy. Wasn't terribly entertaining on any of his shows(Including his original RR season) but he was always a nice presence. On top of that I liked his voice and he was always a good competitor. When Derrick left on Sexes 2 he was so sad and hugged him. Touching moment. Then him and Yes Kissing on Challenge 2000 was a treat too. Hehe.

But overall he was cool.

they kissedd and I missed it?!? i need a video stat

YES

He was chill as fuck. Didn't see much of Semester at Sea but he was cool on his challenge appearances. He kissed Dan on Challenge 2000 then on Battle of The Seasons he got voted out first(Fuck you Chadwick/Holly) and then on Sexes 1 he went out early too. Not  terribly entertaining but was a cool presence. and he was a cutie. Wish he came back for some more shows though.

Finally figured out how to upload pictures. Bare with me, guys, I'm still new to this site. Lol. Without further ado,

Timmy Beggy

Timmy was a great castmember. He was super funny, seemed very chill, and was one of the elite competitors. He has countless memorable moments like peeing during a challenge (before Heather Cooke copied it), mocking Aneesa in the background while she was going off on Cara and his Challenge exit. That is still the best and most emotional exit I've seen on these shows. Only the Miz comes close. Timmy was the perfect example of the Golden era of the Challenges and the days when it looked like so much fun to be on these shows unlike now, where the environment is so awful. 

THE FUN AND EXCITING ATMOSPHERE THE SHOW USED TO HAVE!

Paula looks manish in that pic...

Remember when these shows looked like so much fun? We got the competition, the drama, etc but the cast looked like they had fun too and we don't get that on this show anymore. Like the toga party on Battle of the Seasons 1? or Puck's Wedding?(which looked awesome as hell?) on Sexes 1? Or when Katie put on what she thought was Timmy's deoderant on Inferno 1? Or when Derrick got run over but a golf cart on Sexes 2? Yeah..you don't see shit like that anymore. Now the show is so much more serious and while we do see them have fun it's very seldom in the actual show. It's usually in the Shit they should've shown specials they have.

So yeah..more fun in this show would make it better.

 

Great entry, DA. It was a great transition from my Timmy post. Lol. Adding to yours, people like Jasmine/Simone/Amanda were terrible additions to the show because you know they just played shit up for the cameras. Nothing ever seemed genuine which pretty much summarizes the new tone of the Challenge environment.

True. And the thing is it makes them bad characters because it's so obvious and not interesting at all. That's why I don't get the hype for Simone and Amanda really(People hate on Jasmine).

Jasmine was extra too but she was amusing at times.

Well you mentioned the ancient, more classic moments but nothing about the actual season/era pictured above so here I am. Although this was the beginning of JEK era, there were still fun moments. The Gauntlet 3's parties, fun personalities, Inferno 3 is so underrated but they had such a good group of personalities. The Duel 2 (one of my favorites) is also underrated because of "the list" but they had some of the best dailies. I know a lot of people didn't like Paula and Jenn at that time but I thought they were the stars of the dailies. Add in Isaac, Brooke, Evan, Mark, Aneesa, Shauvon. So many funny moments. I always wonder what the dailies would consist of on these more recent challenges. Do they throw costume parties, play stupid games, have rap battles, etc... 

I think Rivals was the last "fun" challenge. I hated the outcome of that season but the bonus footage was great. Brandon/Nehemiah vs Bananas rap battle was hilarious.

I think Jasmine was herself. She came on to have fun and act a fool. I think she would be like that during the weekend.

Love this man! Wish they had more guys like him on.

Yeah..I said that later on in the shows life they did have fun moments but they were rarely on the on the actual show and weren't as frequent as they were in the past. Case in point: The Dailies you mentioned.

Oh and I loved Timmy as well! He was such a great character and he was one of the few people on this show that were ACTUALLY funny.

Marie

This bitch! I love everything about her---her looks, her personality, her charisma---nothing is bad about her.

First of all, she kept it 100% real on her season of The Real World while having to deal with bitches like Brandon and Trey, both of whom drive me insane. Also her relationship with Latoya is one of my favorite friendships on the show.

Then she came in hot on Battle of the Seasons looking to win which I LOVED. I feel like a lot of people now are not on the show for the right reasons, like Dario and Nate aiming for 3rd place bitch what? Marie and Robb were definitely the teams strongest and it showed as she beasted missions as well as played a great political game. With St. Thomas being an easy target to the main alliance(Cancun, Vegas, San Diego) she made it very far into the game despite the odds against her after losing Trey and Laura. She knocked out Alton and Nany and continued to excel in the daily missons with only her and Robb on a team. Lastly, her drama wasn't all pointless drunken drama it was legit game drama which I prefer wayyyy more. The one night she got drunk though and fought with Derek was still amazing however. I loved how she wasn't afraid to get underneath people's skin and clock a bitch in the process. When Sam got pushed into the wall/flower pots I was cheering because FINALLY someone knocked that whiny bitch out. Overall, she's been on  one season of The Challenge and is still a fan favorite. She reminds me so much of a young Kellyanne and I'd love for her to return.

+1 on Marie. It's a shame she's only done one challenge.  I wish she would do more. She's definitely more real than some of the other girls on the show. 

Marie is fucking awesome. She was defiently one of the stars on St Thomas and Seasons 2. She's one of the main girls I really want to see back.

SWIFT

He was a bit corny on St Thoma but I think he was much better on Free Agents. He was a fun, happy go lucky presence there IMO. Him falling out of his chair during a confessional was funny as hell. I'd love to see this guy back.

THE SAME SEX-PARINGS ON THE FIRST TWO RIVAL SEASONS.

The Rivals format has never really produced a good season IMO but one thing I've always liked about it is the same sex partners. Last time we've had teams like this was Battle of the Sexes seasons from long ago.  It was a different set-up in that particular era and it was fresh to see. I wish they would've had only the M/M go after each other and the F/F do the same. Make it so each gender play their own game. Would've been great to see.

Katie Doyle

It sucks we haven't seen her since Cutthroat because Katie was one of my favorites. She wasn't a good competitor but unlike Casey and Fuckboy Nate, she was still very charming and hilarious. Sure, Katie was always arguing about something but the difference is it was all about the game and how her teammates liked throwing her under the bus. It wasn't useless filter like how Simone and Amanda stir shit up. Katie at least was still very fun when it wasn't focused on the game. 

Plus I enjoyed the way she blasted Julie in their Infwerno (Darrell shoutout). "You think Coral's a bitch, wait till you fuck with me." Pan over to Coral, mouth wide open. It was such a fulfilling moment in that season. And let's not forget her epic argument with Veronica, which is still a top 5 fight on the show. I would have love to seen her and Veronica team up on Rivals. 

She also wasn't afraid to let JEK hear it and considering how awful Sarah turned out to be on these challenges, I love that Katie kicked her out of the Champions room for the plunger incident. I miss you, Katie. 

Katie is one of the greatest women this show has ever produced. Not to mention she agreeds with me on JEK. She was funny and quotable and she wasn't afraid to come for edges. Love her so much.

The Gauntlet 3 was so unwatchable until the finale but Katie MADE that reunion along with Coral. I love how she called out everyone on the Vets.

Those two made that one of my favorite reunions ever <3 I miss them so much.

Yep. That was one of the best reunions and it was all because of Katie and Coral. They left that reunion with a collection of edges that day.

ALL of this. One of my favorite one hit wonders. She needs to stop playing and accept the final call for next season! I'm still shocked that she hasn't been back yet.

I miss strong women on these shows. Katie, Coral, Veronica, Rachel wouldn't let their guy partners take full control. They would be running shit or it would be 50/50. Even supposed bad bitches like Nia let their partners take the reigns. Thus generation of female competitors fall back too much.

Yes to a strong female. I would love Devyn and Marie to return to the Challenge. 

Diem

Ok first of all this one is very emotional for me because Diem inspires me so much and I was devastated of the news of her passing. As I'm writing this is bringing back all the great memories of her that I've watched and I'm sad I never got a chance to meet her.

Diem embodies everything this show is about and that is The Challenge. Diem wasn't about having drunken or petty fights she was here to compete and I loved that. She wasn't elite but she always held her own with tough competitors going against her. This girl is a fighter, both on and off the show. When she revealed to Derrick that she had cancer it was a complete shock. Then when she came back on the Duel she didn't let the fact that she was in remission effect her game. I just rewatched the ring toss mission and teared up because it was so inspirational to see her beat out everyone else and take off her wig for the first time.

Forget all the drama but her and CT were very cute together and I'm glad they were together when she passed. Diem brought out the very best in CT and without her I don't think CT would be the same person he is now. It's a shame that she didnt win battle of the exes because she deserved it so much. She also would have won on Gauntlet 3 if it wasn't for Easy which sucks because she deserved at least one win.

All in all, Diem was and still is one of the greatest females this show has to offer. There's no denying that she has made an impact on this planet and will continue to do so with all the people she's inspired. A few months ago I stopped drinking and whenever I want a drink or crave I fight through it because I knew if Diem could fight Cancer 3 times then I fight off the temptation of drinking.

 

Diem <333 Why God have to take her? Sad

God should have taken Brian first.
