[QUOTE=Challenge_Fan;281822]I think they were just trying to take out CT. I don't think it was a "CT will destroy us in the finals, so let's get him out of here before that happens." situation. Plus back then, I think they had less reason to be afraid of CT in an elimination round then they do now, seeing as his only elimination round prior to The Duel was an eating contest against Shane.[/QUOTE] Evan did say that they would lose against CT if he made it to the final.
[QUOTE=raskkii;281823]He indeed went in on purpose, but he didn't do that in order to go home. He did that because he thought that he would have a shot in beating him, which he didn't like Evelyn said.[/QUOTE] Evan wanted to go home. That's part of the reason why Nehemiah stopped being on board with the "D-Day" thing because he heard that Evan had no intentions of trying to win that Jungle. On the Derrick podcast with Wes, Wes said that Evan didn't want to be there. On the podcast with Kenny, Evan, and Mark, Evan talked about his game strategy and Kenny said something like, "What strategy was that? Losing on purpose and not letting anyone else know that that's what you were planning?" and Evan said something like "Yup, and nobody knew until right before". I think Kenny and Johnny knew from the beginning that Evan was only there to pick up the appearance check and head back to school or whatever, and then Wes and then Nehemiah found out. The guy may have put on some weight (and not even that much compared to the Ruins when he was one of the best guys there) but not so much as to make him pretty much unable to swing on a bar...

Yeah I dont see Evan coming back to challenges anytime soon.
What to make of this? [url=http://vevmo.com/vbimghost.php?do=displayimg&imgid=11858][img]http://vevmo.com/imagehosting/51094e93159a720aa.png[/img][/url]
Can't wait to see who it is!

I'm listening to a Derrick interview on A Shot of Yager. He mentions how he thought the Rivals was a great new concept for the show and goes on to say there had been another looming idea for the next show that will ensure drama. Looks like we might possibly see another new format on the next challenge. Here's the interview: [url=http://www.thecampussocialite.com/a-shot-of-yager-podcast-w-returning-guest-mtvs-derrick-kosinski/]A Shot of Yager: Podcast w/ Returning Guest MTV’s Derrick Kosinski | The Campus Socialite - Campus Lifestyle for College Students by College Students[/url]

If the rumors I've heard are true, it will absolutely ensure drama.

I'd make it so unless you are a finalist you are forever banned from the series--that way people who show up will fight from the beginning and not roll over for the same old crew every season and would have motivation to knock out the super vets early as possible.

BMP just wouldn't ban those people who would bring them the most ratings and money.

It would almost guarantee that Jenn would be on that show and I don't know how many more challenges with her I can watch. She used to be one of my favorites until she showed she has a superiority complex. I'm open to a new format, though. I've enjoyed most if not all of the formats so far. My only complaint is I wish The Duel/The Duel 2 had more individual challenges and less partner challenges.
What kind of format are they talking about? Since I can't listen to the podcast right now.
[QUOTE=molds13;281927]Definitely a possibility. If the rumors I've heard are true, it will absolutely ensure drama.[/QUOTE] I know I shouldn't ask many, if any questions about this, but all I'm wondering is if this rumored format or theme has been something suggested on here in the past, possibly during Rivals rumors or if it's something no one's really thought of before?

I have no idea if this particular format has been discussed before.

[QUOTE=raskkii;281934]I'm sorry, but it sounds like a very bad idea. BMP just wouldn't ban those people who would bring them the most ratings and money.[/QUOTE] It's not like they would really ever make it forever. They could then follow that with a couple seasons where the banned players--sort of like bad guys--would have to compete to get back into the series like a redemption round every now and then as a periodic twist to future challenges.
[QUOTE=TSPKM2;281907]Yeah I dont see Evan coming back to challenges anytime soon.[/QUOTE] Yeah Hopefully he never returns.
[QUOTE=Debut Album;281947]Yeah Hopefully he never returns.[/QUOTE] Of course YOU don't want him back, because he's been on more than one season. God forbid somebody competes in multiple challenges.

Does anyone know when is the cast of the next challenge are leaving?
[QUOTE=lulax3;281951]Does anyone know when is the cast of the next challenge are leaving?[/QUOTE] I don't even think there IS a final cast yet, but if there is then they'll probably leave in like November.
Maybe this season, they'll do some concept where players are able to switch teams. That'd be kinda cool.
I could be way off because I haven't been following much of the thread lately, but I wouldn't be surprised if this challenge wasn't even filmed until the spring. Just sayin...
[QUOTE=BillyBear231;281953]Maybe this season, they'll do some concept where players are able to switch teams. That'd be kinda cool.[/QUOTE] That could be a unique idea. Maybe highest scoring person can choose to switch themselves with someone on the other team or switch one person from their own team with the other.
[QUOTE=Buck05;281954]I could be way off because I haven't been following much of the thread lately, but I wouldn't be surprised if this challenge wasn't even filmed until the spring. Just sayin...[/QUOTE] Considering that the availability calls have gone out, and probably the final calls too, i would say it's probably gonna be a November filming.
