11. Trishelle

AVG: 7.03
Trishelle wasn't the most successful Challenger, but Trishelle was certainly one of the most known reality tv stars of the '00s, period. Las Vegas was revolutionary for RW; the hot tub orgies, the drinking, the sex, the drama! She was going to get cast and brought back without a doubt. Trishelle’s early appearances proved that rookies can drive a wedge in relationships of veterans and later appearances proved that old schoolers can have impressive comebacks.
General Hospital: On Gauntlet, Mike and Trishelle entered a relationship that would last even off the show, but potentially screw up their social games (mainly Trishelle). It grew even stronger once Trishelle had that tragic bike accident. The cast decides to go mountain biking (oh the freedom of the old days). It being her first time, Trishelle falls over the handlebars, banged up her face pretty bad and was forced to go to the hospital. Mike stays behind, their relationship grew stronger and he basically promised to be Trishelle’s knight and shining armour which propelled her game. Well, turns out everyone on RW was getting injured that season but Mike had it out for Elka even though Elka won money for the group and Seasons with Mike. Elka injuring her knee prevented her from competitīng in certain missions. Trishelle now being the Queen of the RW team thought people were using their injuries as an excuse to stay without putting in any effort and should be booted. Trishelle had Mike whipped! Mike’s closest friends in the game, Coral and Elka, felt that his relationship with Trishelle was affecting his vote. But eventually the team voted her in twice. She was victorious over puzzle master Steve but was defeated by the Queen of the Gantlet and the Mizhelle chapter was over.
The Ex and Rival: The Miz was in leadership of his team. No one was going to piss off the team captain by going after the alpha males girlfriend, right? Mike would go on to voting his best friend, Coral, multiple times because of her mess ups in the past before Trishelle who she thought was the weaker link. This ultimately created tension between the couple, Coral, and the rest of the team. After the season was over, still the tension between the three carried over to the Inferno. The Miz recalls the ill-fated relationship he had with Trishelle. According to The Miz, they had a rough break-up because she cheated on him with multiple dudes. This meant Trishelle would be on her own this time. Trishelle couldn’t take that Mike had moved on, so her drunken self threatened half the cast, especially Coral who she said she’d “beat her ass.” Coral got her back with a vote to the Inferno, the whole team was on board and Trishelle didn't take that lightly. The two got into a heated argument again over Coral’s manipulation. The rivalry ended once again with Trishelle going home, Coral making the finals and Mike and Coral’s friendship stronger than ever. Trishelle serves as a reminder that relationships can easily be broken and rivalries can easily be made on The Challenge. 
The same Trashelle: Trishelle made the best and most surprising comeback of the Rookie Rev. era. After a nine-year hiatus Trishelle graced our TV's again on Seasons (2012) proving that old schoolers still have it in them. Like the avid reality tv star she is, Trishelle knew to make her casting worthwhile. The season was filled with 30 people she had never met before, but she got her flirt on with Chet, made a rivalry with Sarah by accusing of her for being a shady player, bickered with her teammate Dustin and performed well enough to place second in her first final. She did everything that would get her a ticket back onto the show. But just when we thought we'd have Trishelle as a regular again, Trishelle also proved that she could be the same drunken mess as she was in the old days. She ended her Challenge career embarrassing herself in the epic verbal and semi-physical altercation with Aneesa and quitting on her partner Sarah on Rivals II which put a bad taste in our (mainly TJ’s) mouth. At least we can't say she didn't leave with a bang... or a bruise. It was at this point you thought we wouldn't see an old schooler making appearances after a long hiatus again, right? *Shane, Darrell and Veronica stare intensively*

11. Kimberly

AVG: 6.58
Kimberly was one of seven crazy original cast members from the outrageous RW Hollywood season. She had southern belle charm and was perceived as ditsy. Kimberly’s love for having a good time, her willingness to hook-up and even offend some of her roommates made her a fit for a Challenge.
Kim has Grrr: The Duel 2 order was dominated by the seasoned veterans, and her lack of experience meant that she would find herself at the bottom half of the list all the time and partnered with rookie Derek from RR Viewers Revenge. Kimberly hoped someone would call Brittini out before her, but Brit had a good partner, Landon and secured herself a good spot in the game. Veterans called Kim out thinking they could take her but they were in for a big surprise, this rook was a competitor.
Kim having to prove herself started during the second duel when Robin picks her and they played “Pole Dancing.” Players had to climb the same pole that has hand and foot holds giving opponents the opportunity to have contact and knock one another off. It was difficult to maneuver up the pole but Kim got the hang of it while Robin couldn’t even get off the ground for a while. Kim gets to the top first and wins. Ruthie, a top performer, found herself at the bottom and picks Kimberly as well for “Back Off.” They start and Ruthie gets into her stance and starts staring Kimberly down. Kimberly was sure she was going home but she puts up a better fight than everyone expected; they even grapple to the ground. The house couldn’t believe that Ruthie lost to Kimberly. It was then Kimberly really proved she was a competitor.
On The Ruins, Kimberly came back as one of the better girls on her team. As the season winded down each team had six players. The Champs had five guys and Susie, while the Challengers had two guys, three girls and Casey. Casey being the bad competitor she was meant the Champs wouldn’t send Casey into the Ruins and keep her as a layup and the Challengers would lose missions and all control of the match-ups. As much as Kim deserved to see a final we thank Casey for being such dead weight otherwise we wouldn’t have that epic Rag-Doll elimination of Kim vs Susie—in the “rain.” After a tough worn out battle Susie was victorious but Kim can say that she was apart of one of the most memorable female battles.
Caught in the middle: Also on Duel 2, Kimberly found herself in the crosshairs of Dunbar and Paula’s...love...partner triangle? One night Paula decides to lurk around outside noticing Dunbar and Kim are out in the woods sneaking away from the cameras. We all know what that means. Mind you Dunbar had a freaking girlfriend back at home. They insist nothing happened, until Paula later caught them under some covers together and cries about it. Since Duel 2 was more of a partner Challenge for the most part, Kim gettīng close to Dunbar sparks paranoia and fear in Paula. She expresses interest to get rid of Kim who she believes is distracting Dunbar and trying to steal him which will hurt Paula’s game. Dunbar found himself in a tough spot when Kim and Paula found themselves at the bottom of the list, and hesitating on who to save between Kim and Paula. After the suspense Dunbar saves Paula, Kim picks Jenn as her opponent and Kim was defeated. Kim never seemed too threatened by Paula on any level but it would have been interesting to see them on a Rivals. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen Kim since Ruins but it was clear production wanted her as a regular. She wasn't able to be persistent enough to make it through the the JEK era.

11. Camila

AVG: 6.70
There's no denying Camila is insane AND insanely entertaining. First off, if you thought AYTO's inclusion of the show was random you must have forgotten that Camila came from a Challenge related-segment where a bunch of Spring Break partiers competed on alumni teams. Camila stood out enough to be the only one to debut on the actual show and now Camila is one of the top female personalities and competitors of the new age. 
Camila sees Red (Team): Cutthroat would be Camila’s first. She drafted the Red Team herself only to be treated like crap and scapegoated into every Gulag she was eligible for by the veterans until she was defeated by Laurel. We got a glimpse of the Camilinator when Theresa tried to get in her head and accuse her of stealing members belongings before her first Gulag--the two would go on to be rivals partners after their blowout. But Camila's drama was more game focused on her first season than drunken outburst we see on later seasons. Camila's association with Johnny had tarnished Camila’s reputation on her own team. The Red Team started to panic over some nonexistent alliance between Johnny and Camila, so that gave them an excuse to put a target on Camila’s back and the team confronted her. Camila proving herself got her a pass for an elimination over Melinda - as well as being one of the strongest girl in missions. What made Camila public enemy #1 again was when she had cast a vote for Brad and claimed that she had been voting based on performance, but her guilt compelled her to confess. Brad announced that he wouldn’t go out of his way to protect Camila anymore, while Tori was furious of course and told her that she’d be sent into the Gulag every time until she went home. And she did. This only helped launch Camila’s career as she had a good rookie showing and TV time because of this. Camila and Theresa were brought back for Rivals. Still, they were rookies and got taken out in the third round but made sure to pull some antics before their elimination, like fighting with Jonna and Jasmine or pretending that they were not going to complete in the Jungle.
Rise of the Camilinator: Apparently Bananas and Camila’s “thing” was much (stretched) bigger than we thought because it got her another ticket (to the final) on Battle of the Exes. Together, Johnny and Camila become power couple more than any other team, pushed to extremes in the final challenge and Camila celebrated her first victory on a real Challenge. But what we will remember the most...On every Challenge she’s been on she has had a freakout, but none bigger than the crazy chair-throwing-pool one. Camila had been developing feelings for Bananas and they explored a little of each other's company. But after being rejected by Johnny she flipped her shit, threw a chair, walked into the pool like she was possessed, and told Bananas “You cheater! You’re gonna die!” It was entertanīng and pure comedy for viewers, it’s what made Camila a household name. She went from threatening lives on Exes to coming at people's health and appearance during Seasons (2012). Camila got sent home because Eric quit the elimination. This caused her to have another meltdown where she cried, screamed, and berated Eric as she attempted to finish the elimination by herself.
The fall of the Camilinator: Producers were probably expecting a mess from Team Subtitles but Camila and Jemmye fought their way to the final of Rivals II. No big Camilinator moment here. Camila came into her sixth Challenge in a row, Free Agents,  perceived as a strong competitor but something was off. She was a lot more quiet and emotional than the usual. She did get into a drunken blowout, that she started, with her best friend Nany over CT. It was so heated that the two almost fought. The Draw claimed Camila as its victim in the game of Looper against Theresa. Camila came into it defeated, struggled and cried during their heat as shen was dominated. It was at this point you thought she would take a season off,  and thankfully she did. 
The return of the Camilinator: Camila took Exes II off and came back with her small unathletic sister Larissa on Bloodlines. She didn’t last long, but the format allowed for us to see Camila in paranoia again. She took offense to her sister getting put into elimination. The Camilanator does not like this idea and goes on a rampage. She tries to talk everyone out of voting for her sister, including her own teammates who having nothing to do with the vote, even attacked Nany again. The campaigning didn’t work, Larissa was in and out, and that meant Camila had to go as well. But most importantly she found herself a new enemy in Tony who called out Larissa for being weak and their partnership and rivalry would be a new arc in Camila’s story.
No, YOU cheater!: #Tokengate. In one of Rivals 3’s best missions Laps of Judgement, Camila pulled one of the most unintended dirtiest moves in Challenge history. Bottom placers Nate and Christina “lost” a token needed to complete a task during the mission. They were noticeably upset but no one confessed to any foul play. After winners were announced and a whole deliberation passes TJ drops a bomb that it turns out Camila mistakenly took Nate and Christina’s lost token and threw it to the side, so Camila and Tony were disqualified and automatically sent into elimīnation. Instead of taking ownership for essentially cheating, Camila freaks out in typical Camila fashion, throwing a fit at TJ and her victims.
Put Camila to bed: For such hotheads Tony and Camila were actually performing decent on the field on Rivals 3, off the field they were a disaster. Tony’s biggest issue was Camila’s lack of encouragement - because we know on his own Tony sucks. Camila dealt with a lot this season, from fighting with Nany and Nicole over one big misunderstanding, to her rivalry with Amanda and taking the lost of her grandmother pretty hard. Non-stop bickering with Tony made the experience even worse, and drinking was usually involved. The two fight at the bar and it escalated once they got home all because of Bananas stirring the pot, waking a drunken Tony out of his sleep to go “put that bitch to bed.” Well, Tony got in her face instead. After a season full of fights and explosions, Tony and Camila were finally ejected from the game after this big fight that made producers and house uncomfortable. On  Invasion they barely acknowledged the beef didn’t exist. But something tells us all that this won’t be the last interaction between the two.
Camila meets her match: On the span of 2-3 Challenges Camila vs Amanda has become the girl rivalry of the new age. Due to Leroy and Averey leaving, a new team is brought in on Rivals 3. It’s Nelson and Amanda from Are You the One? 3! And Amanda came in hot! After some insults between Tony and Amanda, Camila gets involved to defend her partner. But Camila fucked with the wrong one. Having “two bachelor’s degrees” didn’t prevent her from getting viciously shoved in the face by Amanda. The two were at each other's throats since. You can tell Amanda’s unwillingness to back down from Camila got to her because on Invasion Camila interjected herself into another argument Amanda was involved in, pulling another Camilinator moment, same belligerency but this time it involved a little dance and a striptease. No closure here, the two have yet made up so this will be an ongoing battle and the fans seem to be Team Camila with this one. Voters say otherwise… Anyway, Camila left Invasion as a runner-up and pulling an upset over the beast Laurel.
Camila’s fire is what makes her a great competitor and her crazy meltdowns are an awesome addition to these shows. However, with the overexposure on The Challenge it’s clear that Camila’s mental has gotten progressively worse and unwatchable to some. Perhaps if she was more humbled, took a break or we took alcohol out of the equation some people wouldn’t have a problem with Camila’s evolution on the show.

Does this mean Amanda above Camila? 

Making me relive some memories, I am about to dedicate my time to some old seasons for nostalgia purposes.

Does this mean Amanda above Camila? 

uh ohhhhh...

Jonna & Kim > Marie---predictable

Lmaoooooo lawwwd he really upset today!!

 

Kim making it that high during that era isn't anything to brag about. The most tragic era of females ever. 

Does this mean Amanda above Camila? 

Wink

Lol Camila was done dirty. But as I mentioned it was probably because of the overexposure.

Do you guys want to guess who's still in or me remind you/reveal who's in the top 10 of each?

Lmaoooooo lawwwd he really upset today!! Kim making it that high during that era isn't anything to brag about. The most tragic era of females ever. 

That era is every bit as good as the current one...if not better.  Just stating facts.  Kim & Jonna were ranked higher than Marie--as everyone should have expected because they added more to The Challenge.

I surprisingly agree about all the top 10s.

Kailah, Jillian and even Ruthie were surprises to me. So that makes things interesting.

Cooke, I liked her but I don't get it...but maybe I will once I get to her write-up. Camila should have obviously taken Kailah or Amanda's place if we're being honest.

LOL hell no. This era is  so much better than that piece of crap era. It wasn't just for the women either...it was everything.

Well wait..not everything. There was some good but very fucking little. 

The only good one of that write up is Trishelle. 

Kim is eh and Camilla is grade A crap.

Cooke just had potential like Britini, could have definitely helped change the game with Emily S. And I was surprised by Kailah at first, but in two seasons shes become polarizing, so I'm ok with it. And Amanda is the first woman in a while who's against entitled vets controlling the game, so I'm down with her being here too.

Golden Era girls are stacked top 3 SHOULD BE Coral,  Veronica and Katie.  

JEK ehh I guess Diem , Jenn and EEVLYN

Now I get we don't like Camila but she should've been higher than kailah,  Amanda,  Ashley,  cooke and maybe Emily.  Top 3 should be laurel , Nany and cara Maria.  

Golden Era girls are stacked top 3 SHOULD BE Coral,  Veronica and Katie.  JEK ehh I guess Diem , Jenn and EEVLYNNow I get we don't like Camila but she should've been higher than kailah,  Amanda,  Ashley,  cooke and maybe Emily.  Top 3 should be laurel , Nany and cara Maria.  

Diem being in the top 3 is a joke but I agree...she probably will be because of her story not what she did on the show.

No disrespect to her but if it wasn't for CT idk if she even be on the list ,like besides that she came across as bitchy. But I liked her on fresh meat and Exes 2

Yeah I agree. You take alway her cancer story and CT then she's pretty much irrelevant. And I mean that with no disrespect or malice.

She was very similar to Tori Hall IMO.   Also, everyone hates people that act entitled but Diem always got a pass despite she acted that way from the very beginning.  Diem's a fighter and I respect her for that but she's definitely not one of my favorites.

10. Tina

AVG: 7.18
One-third of the Mean Girls, Tina definitely had a mouth on her and was the pitbull of the group. Before your Jenn’s, your Laurel’s and your Amanda’s to name a few, Tina was that original spitfire as she bullied her way through the challenges.
Mellowed Out: On Tina’s first challenge, The Gauntlet, her experience was quite a blur. On her RR season she was very high-strung, she palled around with the villain Donnell, and was messy as hell for shamelessly flirting with Dave just to piss off Mary Beth. On Gauntlet she was voted in pretty early, which noticeably upseted Rachel and Veronica because they viewed her as being a team player but she was eliminated by Coral. Tina returned on Battle of the Sexes 2 where she quickly developed into a star. To get to stardom she had to be the loud, obnoxious and abrasive bitch that we all missed. And towards who? The punching bag Tonya of course. A rivalry that started over cell phone use, Tina’s distaste for Tonya resulted in continuos fighting with Tonya and bullying throughout a course of a few Challenges. What’s so funny about that season was that Tina was on the opposing alliance that was game on breaking up Coral, Rachel, Veronica and Tonya. After the departure of Rachel and Veronica on yet another Battle of the Sexes, Tina made Coral’s good side but she ended up being the last person cut from the women’s team over Coral’s #1 Arissa. 
The mouth of the Mean Girls: So Tina ups her political game and returns on The Inferno 2 as a full fledge member of The Mean Girls! Considering how mouthy she can get, with Coral sitting this season out, Tina filled her shoes quite nicely. Tina was a savage with her mouth. Tonya was at the premature stages of her mentally unstableness and these girls made sure they berated and exploited her every chance they got after Beth quit. Other big antics Tina pulled this season involved her accusing Abram and Mike of forming an alliance which resulted in an Abram meltdown and flopping at having her team throw missions to save her from an Inferno, but kicking Robin’s butt in their.Inferno. Tina was also fired up, since this season was her first time in a final but Tina helped cause her Bad Ass team the win because let’s be honest...she wasn’t the greatest competitor. 
The childish feud with Tonya carried onto Fresh Meat but Tina made sure she had a new rivalry, this time with Diem. Tina and Kenny won the mission before the final and decided to pin Darrell and Derrick’s teams against each other to ensure that a strong pair is out. Tina wanted to get revenge on everyone that sent her to exile as well. Makes sense. Diem can’t believe that of course and decided to throw a fit. Tina fired back with some rookie and body shaming insults towards Diem. Not knowing Diem’s health secret, Tina was unapologetic. Fresh Meat we saw growth as a competitor, thanks to her partnership with Kenny. They proved to be a decent team after numbers got smaller and stronger pairs were knocked out but most of all they were a very charismatic and funny together. Tina saw final number two for her and no one would be able to tame the pitbull since her first showīng. 
The punch heard around the world: Then comes The Duel. This was one of the biggest moments way back then. Not only was it between two of the biggest female vets but it would go on to be the third time there was physical violence on The Challenge, but second time actually caught on camera. Yeah, sure Tina didn’t connect so it was a flop but it was still a WTF moment in TV. This was way before CT started socking people people in the first. Beth’s tumultuous relationships with cast members finally caught up to her when Tina got fed up with Beth’s antics and pleas for camera-time during Diem’s big wig moment. Beth confronted Tina, Tina threatened Beth with a punch and all had to do was repeat Tina’s name one more time giving Tina the green light to air-punch her in the face. Tina got disqualified and stood proud in her actions with no regrets. She thought she was a hero, but it potentially ruined her Challenge career. This moment was iconic for sure but it seems to be one of the only moments BMP wants you to remember of Tina, even after the appearance as a heavy hitter on Cutthroat, which CT took the spotlight. 
Tina had star power on the Challenge and you might have enjoyed her for being such a savage with a big mouth that stirred the pot. Perhaps what keeps Tina low was that she wasn’t as much of a complex character and played more of a supporting role among her peers.

10. Jillian

AVG: 6.61
Jillian is a Champ often forgotten in the Challenge world but this petite little woman was such a studette. Interesting fact: Jillian has been on 3 challenges total and took a three challenge break in between each. This is relevant because once she debuted, every time she would take a break and return she somehow always found herself on the outskirts of major female alliances during the JKE era. You can’t recall her being as close or getting along with ANY girl during her Challenge run can you?
Rookie Mistake: If there was any time she had the opportunity to make female allies it would have been her debut, Gauntlet 2. Jillian was a gullible rookie, thinking if her loyalty lied with the majority RR X-treme girls alliance she would be safe. I mean after all she did come from that season. So what did she do? Jillian tells Kina that Susie and Cara approached her with an alliance with male Veterans Timmy, Brad and David B. to throw challenges of the opposite sex. Little did she know she would be responsible the epic rivalry between Cara and Kina. She also didn't realize that once numbers whittled down there was no way that alliance would have allowed Ibis to enter the Gauntlet against Kina before Jill. So controversy arose amongst the Rookies team when Kina chose to go against Jillian in the final Gauntlet as opposed to their weakest player. Jillian failed to truly insert herself into the group of girls that would later align themselves with JEK. Kina destroyed her in their Gauntlet and she went packing with egg on her face for disclosing information to Kina who screwed her.
Jillian vs The female race: 3 challenges later she's still considered a rookie and still in a bad social position. If you thought the X-treme girls were cutthroat, wait until you see the Tori + Austin girls. They were willing to risk losing their best female so they could make it to the end. The opposing team was aware of that and used that to their advantage by saving weaker players allowing Jillian to go in three times. Despite her size Jillian was the female athlete on her team, and probably second to Evelyn on the entire season, so she was intimidating to majority of the female cast. She beat girls twice her size in physical/weight based eliminations. Besidēs her physical strength you have to admire her mental strength, because she was never broken. The Gauntlet III was intense from start to finish, round after round Jillian was the topic of deliberation where Tori and Jillian…but more often Jillian's showmance Frank R. would get into a screaming match because Jill was their teams scapegoat. It was another tough challenge for her but no one else deserved that win at the end more than Jillian. 
Jillian would then come back one last time finally apart of a substantial alliance on Fresh Meat 2 with Kenny’s crew and although she had a rocky relationship with her partner Pete, she left as a 3rd place finalist. Jill will be remembered not for having big personality but for her being a good competitor, making rookie mistakes and countlessly overcoming adversity as she was forced to go into eliminations over girls that were useless competitors. Not the best journey but she’s always made it far and through the bs to get there.

10. Amanda

AVG: 6.91
We all know Amanda and Ashley make moves together, but not many duos have two individuals  that can stand alone, and that’s what Amanda has proven she can do. To thīnk that Camila’s a good guy or a hero is absurd but since Amanda is enemies with the popular Challenge vet, she’s currently the Challenge heel. The moment she stepped foot onto the show she became a villain in the eyes of Challenge fans. But what some may admire about Amanda is that she is fiery, short fused, and never been shy about letting her voice be heard. 
The pop-off Queen: On Rivals 3, due to Leroy and Averey disqualifying a new team was brought in, Nelson and Amanda from Are You the One? 3! Who? That's what the cast and viewers alike were wondering. Amanda took offense to the cast being shady/confused because they had no idea who they were and Amanda proceeded to call out a line of people. Tony stood up for Reily, so Amanda insults Tony and the two got into it over what? Which is the better show, The Real World or AYTO? Currently AYTO is the answer - but that's beside the point. If we watched her season you already knew she was a dramatic mess who doesn’t know when to stop. Something petty will escalate into something big, especially when the Camilinator manages to get involved. Unfortunately for Camila, she met her match and got into the season's most hyped up altercation where Amanda viciously mushed her in the face which put a big early target on Nelson & Amanda’s backs. You know someone's not the one to be fucked with if they’re not scared to cross paths with the Camilanator. Amanda self-proclaimed to be the pop off queen and made sure everyone knew who she was after that altercation.
Behind the hard exterior: On her first two challenges Amanda emotionally opened up about her dad and his health issues, which allowed us to see a different side of her. When it's time to show up on the battlefield Amanda also shows potential to be a decent competitor. Amanda and Nelson together were a solid team physically and mentally. Amanda shined during their elimination win when given a puzzle, as well as the first Bloodbath during Invasion. She was generous enough to work with her bestie and guarantee Ashley a spot in the final, and her battle against Nicole in the final elimination was impressive as she almost out strategized the Alpha female. Amanda may say she’s trying to keep her cool so she can win and help support her sick father but she always finds her way into drama.
Finger-Banged: Amanda wasn’t afraid to fuel a rumor that Jenna and Bruno “finger-banged” on the plane to Thailand and then acted like she had no involvement with starting it. When Jenna caught wind of this rumor she was hurt and worried that Zach would flip if he found out (mind you she was single). Whether she did it to throw her opponent off their game or not, it worked. But Amanda clearly can dish it but can’t take.
Prank Wars: Pranks emerged in the Oasis house giving as Amanda’s rival Camila arrived in a Champion twist. It all started with Bananas up to his old antics, taking the Underdogs girls toilet seats and later the Champ girls decide to chime īn by putting chips under Ashley and Amanda’s sheets. Amanda did not take that lightly. While clubbing, Laurel owns up to putting chips in attempt to attack these “young and beautiful girls” and Amanda didn’t want to hear it. Laurel and Amanda go at it, and of course Camila gets involved serving us yet another great Camila vs Amanda moment involving silly strip teases, freckle face fucks and and speech impediments. The three girls get into a screaming and shoving match forcing production to separate the parties. However, the Camilinator-Pop off Queen Saga continues.
She’s The Challenge's current most hated and one of vevmo's “Anti-Casuals Queen,” Amanda has certainly cemented a spot as one of the most memorable of the New Age in such a short time.

09. Emily B.

AVG: 7.66
Around Battle of the Seasons the players of the golden age were just figuring out how to play the game, which was amazing to watch before all the traditions and gimmicks. Emily was the greatest female villains on the show and probably will always be. Emily wasn’t the most confrontational-tease you-bully you type of villain but she was a straight up BITCH that would ruthlessly slice you in the game if you posed as a threat, and showed no remorse for playing you afterwards. There wouldn’t be a “Dirty 30” if it weren’t for Emily’s existence, she really helped to make the show what it is today, not only by her athleticism but cutthroat gameplay. Emily’s a pioneer because the way she played the game back then lit fire under the women after her to play even more manipulative.
But her email: She first competed in Extreme Challenge, but the RR team that year was by far the worst. Her team lost 12 missions to the RW including the grand prize and bickered and fought with each other the whole way. Julie was a notable rivalry for Emily. The next year she teamed with Timmy on Battle of the Seasons, staying in the Inner Circle until the final but coming up short again to team RW. She pretty much laid low on her first two challenges, and continued to build her relationship with RR star James. However, a few moments on Seasons that teased how cunning Emily could get was when she was a part of the inner-circle that voted off Yes and Veronica; a strong pair that placed fourth just missing the inner-circle. Then got into a confrontation with Chadwick, Holly B. & Piggy after she decided to tell the other pairs about their inner-circle's alliance. While being confronted by Jisela, Chadwick denied all claims of an alliance and called Emily a liar. Emily didn’t take that lightly, the moment Chadwick was bumped from the inner-circle Emily convinced the inner-circle to get rid of Chadwick and they did. Even after being voted off Chadwick sent Emily a nasty email (no twitter) blaming her for manipulating the game and having him sent home. 
Emily ends careers: So she came back for a third year on Battle of the Sexes actually playing the part of the master manipulator the whole way through once she realized that there was competition aka young attractive girls that stood in her way. Emily played personal and petty. She still didn’t care for Julie or Ayanna from Extreme Challenge, she smacked talked about Amaya and she had something against Veronica who she feared might have been a threat to her relationship with James. The rumors that season were that Emily hated Veronica because Veronica had hooked up with Emily’s then-current boyfriend while he was “helping Veronica move into her new apartment.” Emily was like a lion creeping toward its prey and being the good competitor she is she creeped into the inner-circle after three missions, and started running shit immediately. First, Emily wouldn’t have been satisfied unless Rachel Robinson was gone. She was able to manipulate Ellen and Ruthie by explaining to them how much of a “toxic teammate” Rachel was and when Rachel was giving Ruthie and Ellen a piece of her mind, Emily was with the guys in the villa,  smoking a cigarette, avoiding the drama. Next up: Veronica. Veronica knew what was up, the two battled for that final spot in the inner-circle but anytime Veronica was in she was unable to pull the trigger. When Veronica slipped up and Emily got back in it was over for V! 
For love or money: After Emily got rid of all the people she didn’t like her main goal was to make it to the end with her boyfriend James. The rest of the game Emily would find herself stressed out over the thought of James potentially leaving the game. That  day actually came during the final five, James was at the bottom and was voted off his male team. Emily pulled a shocking move and decided to walk even though it was clear that she would have made the final. This was so against her competitive nature to do such a thing, and it made her even more of a villain because she quit after ending players games that could have been in her place if everyone would have known she was going to pull this stunt.
While Emily’s exit left a bad taste in everyone's mouth she will still go down in the books as the player that defined playing dirty. Emily would force you into a rivalry and prevailed in the end. Her gameplay prompted some of our favorite Challengers to be even more of a strategic player than Emily ever was.

09. Svetlana

AVG: 7.18
If Invasion of the Champions had a foundation for an idea Svetlana aka Fitz would be the basis. On Duel, the first and practically only REAL individual challenge she was the definition of an Underdog! No one expected this rookie to make it as far, let alone be a finalist. Especially if you've seen her on her season of the Real World no one thought she'd have fight in her. I guess we can thank Janelle and Tyler's bullying and burnbook for that thick skin. Fitz sets herself as the standard one hit wonder of the recent Challenges.
Fitz vs The Drama Mafia: With all her roommates gone back to back, as the sole remaining Key Wester Svetlana was well-aware that she had to play to win and wasn't ready to throw in the towel yet. After a victorious win in a daily mission Beth decides to confront the "Drama Mafia," threatening to break up their alliance and Svetlana decided to join forces with the misfits of Nehemiah, Wes, Aneesa and Beth in an effort to take them down. Svetlana was on the outskirts of a huge alliance and managed to face adversity by going toe-to-toe on and off the field with top personalities in the house's majority alliance and at times outperformed and outlasted them all besides Jodi who took the crown.
Fitz vs Bethasuarus: Svetlana learned the hard way that Beth's sole purpose for being on this show is to cause dama herself. Things got heated when Beth tells Brad she's heard he was talking about her through Svetlana and all hell broke loose. This causes Brad to flip out on Svetlana to the point where she cried and wanted to quit because of the accusations of her starting drama. When it came down to the Duel it was Svetlana who was left standing. To everyone's surprise, she picks Beth out of spite to battle in "Push Me" which was the only Duel that wasn't seen yet at that point. Everyone desperately wanted Beth out the house but were concerned about Beth's weight advantage. Svetlana worked hard but was still dominated by Beth and Svetlana was so defeated and broken by her "loss." But then Beth reaches her flag and disqualified when she rips it off instead of unhooking it, forcing her to actually lose on a technicality. This triumphant win for Fitz was so controversial.
Fitz vs Kina: Even though all of the girls are thrilled that Beth's gone, Svetlana was still a threat and still had to work extra hard to stick around, now that she had no alliances left but Wes and Aneesa. Jodi and Kina plot to send Svetlana packing and she found herself standing alone during the pick list yet again. She doesn't waste any time deciding and chooses Kina to face her in another "Push Me" Duel. This time, the fight for survival lasts almost 50 minutes before Svetlana wears Kina out and comes out on top again, leaving Kina embarrassed, devastated and hysterical that she got destroyed. 
Her "Push Me" duels against Beth and Kina were EPIC Challenge moments. We also can't forget her final duel against good friend and allie Aneesa, which was heartbreaking to see. Before twitter and facebook her popularity was at an all time high on the internet, vevmo and other fan message boards alike. The demand to have her back on a challenge was there but she's been declining challenges until production finally lost her number. She was a star on her season and a star on the Challenge. It actually would have been interesting to see how she would have done on future challenges, especially when her former cast member Bananas shifted into a power position.

09. Kailah

AVG: 7.16
Kailah didn't just make a splash on her first season of The Challenge, she practically WAS Invasion until she was eliminated. Kailah speaks highly of her physical capabilities (cocky even), quick to speak her mind and makes it clear that she has no intentions of making friends. But then Kailah would turn around and wonder why she’s public enemy #1 on The Challenge.
Nobody likes me, but that’s okay: With no RW allies Kailah quickly aligned with the perceived “strongest” Underdogs, which was a small group consisting of Tony, Bruno, Cory, Kailah, Jenna and Nicole that quickly broke away from the large Underdog bunch first day/mission. This irked many members of the other group, and since players hated Kailah pre-game she became an early target. During the first deliberation in the shelter Kailah almost unanimously gets voted in and found herself going against Marie In The Trenches. It was then the Challenge world quickly learned that Kailah is stronger than anticipated. Kailah easily took home the first victory and earn a spot in the Oasis that guaranteed her to stick around of a few more shelter rounds and also giving her an opportunity to up her social. But Kailah’s stubborn so instead of damage control or being friendly she continues to isolate herself with Jenna and Cory instead. By the time the winning Underdogs make it into the Oasis to compete against the Champs they are not on the same page and more divided than they were before. When it came to the second elimination nominees Kailah was voted in yet again. Her opponent this time was Sylvia and Kailah thought she had it in the bag. Cockier than ever Kailah talks a lot of shit about being the best competitor there but Sylvia managed to win, sending Kailah home for good. 
Golden pussy now broken pussy: Kailah had her eyes set on Cory (who has his eyes set on anyone with a pulse). After getting into an argument with Nelson, Kailah turns to Cory for comfort and that quickly turns to something else. She continued to hooked up with the “dirtiest dick on the Challenge,” and we saw them having sex on the laundry room floor and a makeout session on the beach. Having a romance with Cory doesn’t advance you in the game at all but makes for great television. One bizarre night occurs and that relationship comes to an end when she quickly consumes too much alcohol, passes out and wets herself in the bed. While Kailah laughs it off, not proud of herself, Cory is turned off and in typical Cory fashion uses this moment to trash talk and distance himself from Kailah. Kailah left the show determined to have a thing with Cory and also left the reunion upset that Cory hooked up with Camila right after she left. We shall see how the Cory and Kailah chapter ends.
Kailah talks such a big game and can show that she can back it up. But Kailah is still rough around the edges as we’re discovering that so far Kailah has an inability to make friends and socialize outside of Jailah, which is important on this particular show. Still, Kailah has done just enough to get invited to the Reunion despite being an early boot and she did enough to make this list. Her rookie debut will go down as impressive/remembered as she hit all marks from Hook-Ups, Crying, Drama, and Competition. A new regular has arrived!

My bias aside, Kailah being ahead of a couple of those girls is insulting.

It really is. Like Kailah has the makings to become a remembered regular, but her showing on Invasion/what we've seen on Dirty Thirty is NOT enough to put her above half of those girls IMO

I just love the fact Emily is a full half point higher than Kailah and almost a half point higher that Svetlana...tells you which era was the best.

Kailah ahead of Jonna & Camila is crazy even if I like her infinitely more than Camila.  Kailah > Jenna is even surprising.
