Didn't he refer to himself as Nick Brown: The Movement? He seriously was so corny.

That shit was funny though. I remember on The Duel 2's shit they should've shown they found his card that said that and they all gave themselves nicknames. Was fucking halarious.

LOL I remember that too. The Duel 2 didn't deliver much on the challenge side, but the cast was pretty hilarious.

And that season had a good Shit they should've shown special too. I still think the one from that season is the best one they've ever did.

MITCH

MTV, please ditch Vinny Pig and Nicole. If someone is going to represent Bloodlines, make Mitch a regular. He's likeable, isn't a useless competitor, and he and Cory were fun to watch together. Sadly, he's too chill for these shows and MTV likes all the uninteresting, shit stirrers like Nicole and Vinny.

YAAASSSSS @ Mitch. He honestly was one of my favorite Bloodlines. I really hope they make him a regular because he would be a fresh personality on the show. 

Kimberly

Kim was a breath of fresh air. She provided comedic confessionals, real drama, and steamy hookups. On her season of the real world she was at odds with Brianna which lead to one of the biggest fights in real world history. Seeing Brianna go off on Kim and hearing Kim say "KNOCK ME THE FUCK OUT, DO IT!" was so awesome because Brianna was such a bad bitch who definitely would have knocked her out but Kim wasn't having it and didn't back down. God, Hollywood was such an awesome season. Then later Kim came on the challenges and was a surprisingly good competitor. To be honest I thought she would be kind of like a Casey but better. In reality, Kim was an above average competitor who took out Ibis, Robin, and Ruthie. She only lost to Jenn and Susie. Not bad if you ask me. (Side note, why did Robin pick Kim for the duel and not Brooke? Stupid!)On The Duel she had her fling with Dunbar and mini fued with Paula which was alright but her performance that season was way better. On The Ruins she was consistently the best female on her team along with Sarah and Kellyanne. She wasn't present for the Ibis/Veronica deliberation but they both wanted to face her which lead to one of my favorite moments in the shows history when Veronica got her way and Ibis was blindsided. Anyways, she took out Ibis in a really cool elimination and then later she was apart of one of the greatest female eliminations of all time vs Susie. Watching those two go at it for a half hour in the middle of a thunderstorm with screaming, blood, and crying was insane. Although I would have loved for Kim to win she unfortunately lost. It's sad that Kim never came back after The Ruins because she was so awesome. I wish she was on Rivals with Brianna or one Seasons with team Hollywood. Oh what could have been...

Yesssss HT, I've been praying for this bitch to grace our screens again but the chances of that happening are non-existent Sad

WHEN THE SHOW WAS THE REAL WORLD ROAD RULES CHALLENGE.

Remember when this show as about actual castmembers from The Real World and Road Rules coming together to battle it out and intereact with each other? Yeah. I remember that and I miss that too. Back in the day this show was about those favorite castmembers from both shows mixing it up with each other and seeing them in a different enviorment. Seeing who would mesh with who, who would hook up with whom, who would clash with who etc. It was the main driving point of the show and what set it apart from other shows like Survivor and Big Brother.

I personally believe that when they strayed from this is where the show started to go downhill. They brung in all these people that weren't Real World/Road Rules who aren't interesting and whome the audience doesn't know and the show lost what was so special about it. Even moreso when those people started gaining fanbases and then started to having a "main cast". It seems like they kept casting all these young, fresh people on The Real World only to barley use them on the challenges and keep focusing on the same overused people that debuted over a decade ago. Sometimes I feel like RW is being pushed aside for people who do this show no good and it's a shame.

But in conclusion I miss the days when it was just RW/RR people having some fun and competition. I miss the interesting personalitites and good atmosphere this show used to have back then. Fucked up thing about it is we could have that now but prduction seems so content to not do that and just cater to the delusional stans and freaks that fap to thier favs.

RW/RR forever.

ABRAM

Abram has always been one of my favorites. Him beating Donell's ass back on Road Rules:South Pacific gave me so much life because it was so well deserved. When he got on the challenges he was bascially Miz in training. Shit, he was called mini miz on his first show which was The Gauntlet! Not to mention that when he got eliminated he got a threesome out of the deal(Lucky Man!).

There always seemed to be two sides to Abram, the calm, introspective, fingerpainting, color-blind Abram. Then there's the wild, aggressive, strong, crazy side to him. I loved both sides and they came out on different seasons(sometimes the same). However, I think this wild side is clearly more entertaining as was shown on all 3 seasons of the Inferno. Speaking of The Inferno he was one half of one of the best elimination round in inferno 2(it's an entry in this thread you know) and his crazy, tough side came out and it was so appropriate and it was kinda sexy to me as well. But going back to his personalities..I love that he has multiple sides to him because it makes him a multi-dimensional character to me and on a show where people just play a role and never really deviate from it that's fucking rare and refreshing as hell.

Another thing I liked about Abram is that I don't think he ever really was afraid to go into elimination. So many people try to avoid it but he always just bucked up and went if he had to. He even offered himself up to go into the gulag on Cutthroat! He was also always just down for whatever as far as competition and he was a good competitor as well.

Now Abram has alot of good about him but there's some bad: Him banging Cara Maria being one of them, Then he's had this holier than thou attitude when it came to people on this show. On Cutthroat reunion he said people had a poor display of character..this is coming from someone who has been kicked off the same show twice, Smeared shit all over the walls when he was in prision, and have had their shitty moments on this very show. He's no better than anyone else on this show honestly. And as bad as talks about the show he still has no qualms about coming on as he's stated that he'd return.

So..at the end of the day I like Abram and he's always been one of my faves. He has his faults but everyone does, plus I think this good outweighs his bad. It was so refreshing to see him return on Bloodlines because it'd been so long see we'd seen him and it was great to see someone whom was legit interesting return to the show and make it better. I do hope he returns one day.

Also I liked his realtionship with Coral. Best relationship he's had on this show ever if you ask me.

 

Always liked Abram too because he's guaranteed to be good tv no matter what and he's a solid competitor. 

LACEY


Since I'm ripping on Austin in the other thread, I'll give Lacey her props. Because she was awesome and only needed one episode to win me over. When I saw the Seasons 2 cast and her name was listed, I was like "Really? the boring one from Austin." But she was more memorable than Rachel and Melinda ever were. She wasn't a standout athlete, but she competed very hard and impressed a lot of people. Plus she was funny and she brought out the softer side of Wes and they look like they have a nice friendship outside the show. Lacey is too good and normal to be a regular on the current Challenges, but I wish she would come back.

Lacey was amazing on seasons. God bless that girl!

THE UP ALL NIGHT CHALLENGE ON RIVALS 3

Rivals 3 is turning out to be another bad challenge but it's had some good missions and Up all Night was one of them. All they did was just stand on boxes and just watch randome shit go down and in the morning remember the events in order to figure out a puzzle to win. It's so different and unconventional to alot of the missions they do nowadays. Plus there were people on fire. Cute pictures with Iguanas, and motorcycles. You can't go wrong with those things.

DAN(VIEWER'S REVENGE)This guy was awesome. He was litterally the only good thing that came out of that piece of shit Viewer's Revenge Season of Road Rules. I remember him and Tori had a little thing..Good thing he doged that bullet given she was horrid.When he came on the challenges he was a drunken MESS! I mean he bascially spent his entire time on The Island drunk and messy. He hooked up with Robin and had a sad and pathetic argument about a limp dick he fought with Dave too(Kinda wished those two were on Rivals) but that's all I recall of him on that season.Then on Cutthroat he did a complete turnaround. He was clean and sober and had full intentions of staying that way at all costs because he realized how much of a mess he was when he was drunk. It wasn't a HUGE storyline that season but it really was interesting to see someone keep sane and sober in the face of all the debachurey going on. He hasn't been back since that season and it's a shame(he doesn't drink anymore so in MTV's mind that makes you automatically boring). He wasn't wildly entertaining but he can be funny at times and he was a cutie. I follow him on instagram and he seems to be very much in shape and into fitness so if they were to ever bring him back he'd be better than what he was competitivley I think.But yeah..Dan was cool and I liked him. Wish they would bring him back because I would love to see him. 

Ididn't care for his service, or his limp dick stereotypical drunk storyline.

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

Nick brown the guy that still has "the duel and the ruins" in Twitter bio as if people remember him. Tragic.

How is that tragic but yet Kimberly racist white ass is your fav

BLAIR HERTER'S AFTERSHOW

It sucks this aftershow didn't last long because it was so awesome. First off, Blair was just a great host and he had great chemistry with all his guests. The aftershow was great because we got to hear more dirt on the castmembers. His interview with Coral on Fresh Meat is still my favorite and when she roasted Danny and Melinda. Plus I enjoyed the segments where Blair did mini challenges with the castmembers like on the Duel aftershow where you picked a card with someone's name on it and you could say whatever you wanted about them. It was fun to watch after an episode of the challenge. I hate the current aftershows now because they focus too much on the drama side and people are brought on just to stir up more fights and it gets too personal. And the host all suck and have no charisma. 

 

 

THE CHALLENGE DAILIES

Man, these were great too. It made watching some of those crappy seasons worthwhile because we got some good behind the scenes clips. Plus I liked how each castmember had their own archive of videos and exit interviews. The Duel 2 had the best dailies, imo. And Cutthroat's were great too. 

 

DARRELL.

Always liked Darrell. He was cool and chill and never really got into drama..well at least not as much as some others. I remember Shane slapping him on Campus Crawl and man...I was amazed that he didn't beat his ass. Good thing he didn't though. Then when he got on The challenges starting with Gauntlet 1 he was chill as fuck and stayed out of drama. Him staying out of drama would be his forte as he went on in his time on the shows which resulted in him not getting as much screen time as some of the other challengers. He did have his moments though..him showing up in a wig and fake teeth on arrival was always halarious(especially on the inferno) Him asking what was a stilt on Inferno 2 not to mention his hookup with Leah(and Casey on Fresh Meat 1 that was never shown), and then arguing with Abram on The inferno 2 calling him a little poodle(LOL!). For awhile he held a perfect record of winning every challenge he appeared on.

That record got broken on The Ruins. Where he got ejected from beating Brad's ass which was crazy to see because Darrell had(for the most part) been calm and has never hauled off and hit someone like that before. And even before that he got into with Kellyanne and Wes and that moment felt so out of character for him because he was never one to start shit with people before and what did Kellyanne ever do to him? Then there was Fresh Meat 2 where he got out first(Fuck you Cara Maria). Sadly that was the last we saw of him but I will always pull for him coming back on the shows because he needs to redeem himself after his last two showings, he's in tip top shape and he'd be someone who we haven't seen in awhile.

So yeah...Darrell is awesome and he needs to come back to show Leroy a thing or two on how to win.

 

Darrell was great. Low key drama but great competitor. He was pretty hilarious at times too. I still consider him a better winner than Backpack because he actually earned his keep on those challenges he won.

And Darrell had better competition too and wasn't helped by production.

Didn't Darrell not go into elimination rounds for 3/4 of those wins? And won 2 lifeshields total on those 3 challenges? Darrell's one of my favorites of all time and one of the best to ever do it...but I find this argument of how Darrell's wins are so much more impressive than Johnny's very confusing...especially when Darrell is given credit as the original "fly under the radar and show up for the final" guy.

You do have a point about Darrell and you can argue he was on stacked teams and Aviv was a solid partner. I just can't consider the Island and the Ruins to be real challenges. And it's been referred to many times that Kenny and Wes had a much bigger lead on Tyler/Bananas on Rivals. I do think he earned his Exes 1 and Free Agents wins though. 

FRANK R. 

Funny how some of these players don't look like a typical Challenger, but they end up stealing the show. And to be honest, Frank was the MVP of the pathetic Gauntlet 3 season. I think Frank is everything Devin from AYTO wishes he can be. He speaks his mind, he's smart and he's a good competitor. Plus, Frank was hilarious at times. The funniest moment being when Nehemiah was talking about the Rookies (Johanna, Tori, Rachel, Frank, Jillian, Nehemiah) and saying he believes they have a good team. And Frank in the confessional says something like "Our team really sucks. And the girls all hate me."  I also thought it was funny how Danny tried cutting a deal with the Rookies in a challenge and everyone but Frank was on board and he ended up ratting out Danny to his team. 

Plus I really found Tori annoying so I enjoyed Frank giving her shit all the time and he made her look like a fool because he really was the best competitor on their team and was the only one digging out their treasure in the final challenge. I also found his relationship with Jillian refreshing and cute because they didn't need to hook up on camera. Instead, they watched movies on a computer. And Tyler called them "the most boring couple." 

I wish we saw him again because he's different from the other male competitors that usually dominate these shows.
