Leroy recalls, "We had a friends with benefit type thing, and I'm like, this is sweet! And then, it turned into a disaster." Naomi admits, "Towards the end, I did catch feelings." But coming into the Battle Of The Exes, Leroy is focused solely on the game, "I don't want to hook up with her here. I want to leave that in the past and see if we can make some money." Will this couple be able to keep their heads in the game or will they let their emotions get the best of them?[/QUOTE] [center][/center]
Leroy is a good competitor...can't wait to see him bang with the other dude
[QUOTE=Econ1260MetZ;292833]Leroy is a good competitor...[B]can't wait to see him bang with the other dude[/B][/QUOTE] Um...what?
[QUOTE=molds13;292853]Um...what?[/QUOTE] God I hope they meant that, because that'll give me more reason to watch this challenge.
[QUOTE=Econ1260MetZ;292833]Leroy is a good competitor...can't wait to see him bang with the other dude[/QUOTE] I thought Leroy rejected Dustin's sexual overtures...
[QUOTE=Econ1260MetZ;292833]Leroy is a good competitor...can't wait to see him bang with the other dude[/QUOTE] I cant wait for him to bang with the other dude too, judging by the preview he seems to bang with Wes. Looks like its going to be hot and very rough!
LMAO Oh my God! I meant to say tussle with the other dudes. AH this community is awesome.
Good to see Leroy back. He appeared to be a very capable athlete on Rivals, and he's one of the more rational and sane people on the Challenge. I hope he goes far, but I'm not sold on Naomi as a competitor at all. She'll probably hold him back.

I'm just interested in seeing his reaction to being paired with Naomi.

Roy echoed her sentiments many times on his ustream. This will be very interesting to see.

[B]I'm just interested in seeing his reaction to being paired with Naomi.[/B][/QUOTE] From the producers cut of episode 1, it seems like Leroy has a good attitude about being with her. He may be a rookie, but Leroy has the game figured out where if he shows that he thinks she is weak then they will get eaten alive. Take Tyrie & Jasmine as an example of that, already in the first 15 minutes of the sneak peak she makes it blatantly clear that she doesn't want to work or be civil with Tyrie, that won't work in their advantage whatsoever.
Leroy has to do a Duel where he is on his own
[QUOTE=jones10389;295553]Leroy has to do a Duel where he is on his own[/QUOTE] I agree!
In the words of Anessa "I love me some Leroy" Best elimination round I've seen in awhile. Can you imagine how great he would do if he had a really strong partner like Emily from DC, Laurel or Rachel? Or if he were on his own. The man has said on his ustream he did not have an alliance and isn't interested in them unlike the likes of Johnny, Kenny or Mark on these shows. I'm sure a lot of the vets were watching that and they now know he is someone to fear if you're going up against him like that.
I think he's making his way to be the top challengers with Landon, Alton, Derrick, CT and Mike The Miz.
[QUOTE=jones10389;295553]Leroy has to do a Duel where he is on his own[/QUOTE] He's got to. His first two partners just haven't been up to snuff. Mike was sufficient, but not enough. While Naomi is strictly Casey 2.0....
[QUOTE=Camille;295725] The man has said on his ustream he did not have an alliance and isn't interested in them unlike the likes of Johnny, Kenny or Mark on these shows..[/QUOTE] That man is a beast, but he is pretty stupid and here is example one. Does not want to be part of an alliance.
[QUOTE=Ch@llengeFan;296071]That man is a beast, but he is pretty stupid and here is example one. Does not want to be part of an alliance.[/QUOTE] I'm actually starting to agree, Leroy is my favorite challenger, but he's too stubborn. The "flying under the radar" strategy he used on Rivals only worked for the first challenge he was on, but I doubt that's it's going to work anymore.
You don't have to be an alliance in order to do well. If you are a nice guy people won't want to send you home and if you are a dominate athlete you don't have to worry about losing. Alliances only benefit middle of the road players or *******s.

If the game makes it necessary he'd probably have his pick of people to work with. He's said that aside from his season he's close with CT, Brandon, Ty, Kenny, Johnny, Tyler, Nehemiah, Tyrie, and Adam King. I think if he were someone who no one liked and was always trying to play the stealth game it would be a problem...I think he just wants to flex his muscles for a little while and see what he can do on his own before he throws in with other people.

Her reminds me a lot of Darrell from RR during his challenge era. The two have some similarities, both black, great athletes, well liked by the rest of the cast, women love them, and they excel at flying under the radar. Don't change a thing Lee Lee!!! To hell with alliances!
I agree. I don't think he should start joining alliances. I believe he is one of the few players of the game who can do well without an alliance.
Leroy probably meant it more along the lines of he wont fall into fixed alliances like Evan, Kenny, Johnny, Paula, and Jenn have with each other. I'm guessing he socially wants to be more like Brad who had alliances based more around friendship and flying under the radar.

No, Darrell is a great comparison. Darrell was notorious for sleeping all day, staying out of trouble and doing work when work needed to be done to get to the end. All the people who talk crazy **** or make huge moves get targeted and thrown under the bus. Who says Leroy doesn't or wont work with his team and or others? Leroy's whole ideal is he will do whatever it takes to win. If that means working with an alliance then he will do it. He wont put his neck on the line for others unless it benefits him. He is very mercenary like. That's not to say he is looking to screw people over or anything but he is looking out for number one. If he has teammates that includes them if they are vital to his survival. As long as he isn't rubbing people the wrong way, he will be alright. Someone could always view him as a threat and want to send him home but he is playing the game much more wisely than someone like Vinny, Wes, or Tyrie has in the past. He's pretty much playing a relatively clean game and benefiting, that's hard to do.
Leroy's not stupid. I think he's very wise and he also knows where he stands. Even though he's cool with everybody, he knows that there is a pecking order if he were on an alliance with the usual suspects who runs these shows like Johnny. Also, these have been partner challenges where being in an alliance wouldn't benefit him. Especially on Exes where he has a weak partner and the format they have. If they had a Gauntlet/Inferno type challenge where everything was divided in big teams, I think he might be open to an alliance with some of the guys. But in the end, he's looking out for him, is not going to fall for JEK antics just because he likes them, and believes it comes down to the way you perform.
I like him just for knocking Wes out of the game.

He said Leroy is loved so much by the house that no one would even put him in. He said Leroy is becoming the most well rounded player in the house.
After He Sent Wes Packing. Leroy has went up in my book. Not that I didn't like before I like him even MORE now that he got rid of Wes. However I Don't see him lasting long. Naomi doesn't seem all that strong to me and could possibly bring Leroy down.
I always liked Leroy but I really had to question his challenge abilities. Rivals he did pretty well with Mike in actual challenges and in the rope climbing thing, he was impressive. Still I had to see more. Him taking out Wes is a huge feather in the cap. I'm keeping a close eye on him to better assess his skills. So far his political game seems very strong. I don't know if he is making moves, I doubt it, but he has managed to be well liked enough to the point people don't want to vote him in. What also could be going in his favor is that teams feel like his team is weak. In my per-season power rankings I had his team next to last mainly because of Naomi. If Leroy is good company and a weak team, they may want to keep him around until the end so they can blow past him in the final. Remember, he has openly admitted that he was ready to quit multiple times in the Rivals final, guys like Johnny may see that as a weakness they can exploit.
