A fan asked Leroy who was his favorite partner out of everyone he's been paired with & his answer was Nia. I still think she was his best partner to date (for a FEW reasons).

i'm crine. this legend. <3 

Scott and derrick just put out a bonus episode with davie from survivor! can’t wait to listen to itAnd speaking of which, anyone know of any challenge podcasts with black hosts? 

Davie for 34 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>There is so much more quality AA men to choose from now. I swear to gawd if Leroy & Henry are on 34.....

I don’t think they’ll call Henry, especially that not only AYTO isn’t the priority anymore, but also because in 3 seasons, he brought absolutely nothing !!!They tried to make him happen for FR, until he flopped again ! Like he’s the only one dude from AYTO in history, who NEVER went far, NEVER won an elimination nor a mission !

On top of that they got Nelson/Devin/Hunter for AYTO representation and seem content with those three so I doubt Derrick will be on next season.

Anthony Bartolotte and Brandon Tindel never did anything while on Invasion and Rivals III

He's on Game of Clones so I'm nervous they still see something in him. Hopefully I'm wrong and we never see him again.

The great thing is davie is a fan of the challenge too, he said he’d be interested in going on it. but not anytime soon, he wants to do a couple more seasons of survivor before he tries anything at mtv because “cbs is a jealous network”

Did they came back after their rookie season ? Exactly, so your comparison is quite irrelevant in this matter.

Game of Clones was shot I think last year, things have changed now and I doubt that he’s a priority for The Challenge. He’ll get called but I don’t that will go further than that, especially with all those rookies (Theo most particularly who can easily steal his spot) I could be wrong, however.

So I saw in the recent comments on the challenge instagram Nehemiah saying he wants to come back. Ya’ll wanna see him back?

Gladly, but I'm also not dying to see him. Nehemiah never fit in the environments on the challenge and I hated how they tried to make him seem weird for meditating, etc.

Can y’all not with the whole AA taking AA spot. Theo & Derrick have NOTHING in common besides their skin color, therefore Theo wouldn’t be taking his spot. You can’t replace someone/take their spot if y’all don’t offer the same things. I just don’t get yalls logic sometimes. 

I'm surprised he wants to come back after that legendary interview but I understand that competitive itch lmao I would love a comeback but I want him to be in tip-top shape for it.Without getting too "deep" I definitely want to see how he would incorporate his spiritual gains over the years into this show. His outlook in general would be a very fresh and interesting viewpoint.

I was surprised to when I saw the comment. He commented on the one with Theo, Bear, and Turbo and said they needed to add some chocolate into the pic for the chocolate lovers & someone said he needed to come back. He said he was ready and trying to, I had to click on his page to make sure it was really him and it was lol. In a way I want to see him back to see how he interacts with these new kids like the young bucks/theo/cain ect, but in some ways idc if he doesnt ever come back lol.

i’m not surprised, you could tell he wanted to come back from his challenge mania interview, and i wouldn’t mind him coming back eitheri still think he’s a hotep, so i’m torn on him being portrayed as a joke, on one hand, it’s mad funny to me cause hoteps are a joke lmaoo, on the other hand, i’m not a fan of them making fun of the idea of spirituality... this was years ago though, they might portray it differently now

I just watched da’vonne’s first impressions of the prospects video (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=iGqvagYU3bs&t=28s) and she had an interesting anecdote. she asked turbo for training advice, and how to get stronger legs and arms, rightturbo: how do i say your skin without being disrespectful?da’vonne: my skin?turbo: yeah, your skin, can i say black?da’vonne: what do you mean, like african american?turbo: i can say african american and it’s not disrespectful? you’re not offended?da’vonne: no! go ahead! say african americanturbo: ok you’re african american, you’re already strong, you don’t have to train hard, it’s already in you (my apologies if this has been talked about)

with the addition of black ppl from the rest of the world, we should be more mindful of how we refer to them, we’re all black but not every black person is aa. derrick henry is african american. kam is black american. shaleen is a black canadian. theo is a black briti agree though, i don’t think theo should be in competition with derrick

TURBO <3

Idc if he comes back or not but I wouldn't mind it because he's different/fresh. He's still close to Wes so it wouldn't shock me if Wes tried to pull some strings for him.

You’re absolutely right.. I only said AA because I don’t got time for people taking “black” wrong. 

Nehemiah wants to come back? I figured he was done with the show honestly. I don't see him returning but hey. Shane did so we'll see.

Honestly, the only good show on mtv that has delivered us with good black people is EOTB2! Maya, JD, Kareem, Perez, Darian, and Janelle could all **** **** up on The challenge. Also, let's discuss this thing with Real World: Atlanta. We have Joanna, a pretty black girl with some spice and a decent backstory, Michelle who's Thai & Mexican with a good backstory to tell and then we have Clint.. a farmer who wants to find a girlfriend... we all know who they are going to cast and it's disgusting that those two women were practically set up to fail.

I thought he was too, it was surprising to see that comment. Lol I don’t even wanna speak about Shane’s return because he sucks, he just did too much.

I feel so bad for Mama Day smmfh ALL she is wanting to do is to change narratives yet it's been twice now where she's been thrown under the bus by the other one who's supposed to be helping her do that.... gotdamn shame.

I’m not even surprised about Kam smh.

Same. she’s cool strategically and a nice addition to the game, but she looks exactly like the type of girl to do that lol. whoever said she was shady was absolutely right

Technically, this is the second time it was done by Kam...
