[QUOTE=foofighter7;282045]Just wanna throw my 2 cents in: Zach will beat CT in the next challenge...dude is HUGE.[/QUOTE] From episode two, I didn't see Zach doing any body lifts. Dude played wide receiver. I highly doubt he is on the same pedestal in strength as CT. Townie stated CT deadlifts and Squats 500-600 without belts or wraps. From my two cents, Zach just looks like every other guy that goes to the gym to look pretty. CT and Tyler actually do a lot of full body compound lifts.
Zach is a big dude and probably a pretty good athlete in terms of running and jumping (because he was a WR), however the type of athlete you need to be is completely different for The Challenge. I am not sure how good he is in the water, with endurance, with wrestling, or with climbing which are all key aspects to being good in The Challenge. I also think he might just be big naturally and not very strong. He said he had never seen some one work out like Nate did when they were working out together. It is possible that Nate may be a better competitor than Zach (similar to how Landon is better than MJ from RW: Philly even though MJ is bigger).

I feel like he is more cutout Sports rather than the Challenge. Also, saying he is on the same level as CT, I think, is kinda ridiculous. CT, lets be honest, is just a bit superhuman, he has the type of strength that you don't come around very often.
I doubt Zach can lift a 400 lb swan. CT >
[QUOTE=lulax3;282042]Molds didn't say they were never going to be asked back. She just wrote that both of them (Zach and Ash) were trying to avoid the cameras, in other words they were a pain of the *** for the camera crew. But if you check right now, both of them are fan favorites and they have more followers than the other 5 cast members from their season. I highly doubt she is going to be like a Mandi, I can totally see her being like a Kimberly or a Brittini.[/QUOTE] molds straight up said that there were people on this season that we would never seen on reality tv again. And of all the pictures she painted of the cast members, Ashley's was clearly the worst in terms of her attitude, as well as the amount of stuff that she did on the season. Henceforth, she's not getting asked to do one.

Ashley was just difficult to work with and maybe molds thought that she didnt enjoy her experince since most of the time Ashley was avoiding the cameras during San Diego, so it would be logical to think that she wouldn't do a challenge. I don't think BMP cares that much about asking people that were boring on their season or on Fresh Meat to be on a challenge before (Theresa, Mandi, Luke, Eric, Brandon, Emilee, Derek, CJ). Whatever, time will tell.

Zach and Ashley have shown that they are very popular characters on the show already, sometimes you really never know what you're going to get or how the audience will respond to some characters until the show airs. And to say someone will NEVER be asked for a show is a pretty bold statement and something that is hard to back up when you aren't the producer, or the casting director and before that person's show has even aired. I mean only time will tell but its no use in being a pain and arguing about it when you cant guarantee 100% that Zach and Ashley won't be asked to do a challenge ever, especially considering their popularity and willingness to be on a challenge. Its not like they are similar to Stephen from RW Denver or Jose from RW Key West, these people are popular, main characters, attractive, athletic people that want to do a challenge.
It looks like I misread "Might never see on tv" as "Will never see" in an older post. However, I don't see this Ashley popularity outside of her having more Twitter followers than the rest of the cast outside of Zach. But it's not like she has a lot more and I wouldn't be surprised if most of them are due to people thinking she's attractive. But I still stand that she won't be on one, mostly because I wouldn't expect BMP to want to work with her again. But then again we're only two weeks into San Diego so it's possible that either she'll all of a sudden actually do stuff or just float around in the background to prove my point. But getting away from that, I do hope to see Zach in the future, mostly due to his size, but who knows what side he decides to take.
[QUOTE=faceless;282029]If you actually read my post you would have seen that I did not mention Landon's name at all. You also can't compare what Kenny and CT did on Inferno 3 to a fight because it was not a fight, it was a WRESTLING match. And you call me a "casual" MMA fan when you were the one who said CT had a guillotine on Kenny when that wasn't what it was. Also, Kenny has won some grappling tournaments that he entered against other trained wrestlers so to say he's a nobody when compared to other cast members at these things is just ridiculous. [B]I think you need to let go of CT's manhood. And this is coming from someone who doesn't like Kenny and likes CT.[/B][/QUOTE] Thank you so much for the comments highlighted above....finally someone said it. It was just getting so old and ridiculous that it was really the only thing that could be said.

It sounds more like you dont want them to be on a challenge, rather than you dont think they will be on a challenge.

It doesn't work that way. Its fine for you to hope and dream, but please dont attempt to disregard molds' or anyone else's credibility and push your personal wants as fact. It comes off as incredibly obnoxious and delusional.
It seems pretty obvious at this point that there needs to be at least one big name per season and the people that were seen as "big names" like JEK, Wes, Jenn, Paula, etc have gotten stale. I think they'd be crazy not to have CT on every season from here on out if they want ratings. I think the only other people who could draw like he can are Coral and the Miz...and I'm not sure which of them is less likely to come back. The next rung below those three on the ladder is probably Beth and maybe Mark. I think the only problem with Beth is that you need someone there who isn't going to get along with her and fight with her. All of her story arcs have pretty much been Beth vs Coral or the Drama Mafia or The Vets or Tonya or The Bad *****.

I mean CT is entertaining and all but BMP can't rely on him forever. I'm all for the people from the newer seasons. I think that BMP can get some Huge names out of the past 7 Seasons. I really hope they get as many newbies as possible. I'm just really ready for a new generation of Challengers to take over and I think this is the perfect time for this to happen.

I know A LOT of people who only watch episodes of the Real World just to know who they are once they go on the challenges. I wholeheartedly agree that some heavy hitters could come out from the newbies ( or at least some very entertaining competitors). The last 7 seasons have been striking me as a revamp of the Real World and I have wondered why BMP doesnt try harder to get people on the show from Hollywood till now. I'd love to see Kim, Bre, J.D., Jaz, Ayiiia, Jonna, and Leroy to all return as well as throwing newbies like Sam, Zach, Nate, [B]Frank[/B], [B]Jemm[/B], Knight,[B] Bronne[/B], [B]Zito[/B], Nany, [B]Cooke[/B] and [B]Mike Manning[/B] in just for some fresh faces who would actually be ENTERTAINING to watch
Did anyone else notice TJ Lavin sitting behind Anderson Silva t UFC 136?
[QUOTE=Challenge_Fan;282319]Did anyone else notice TJ Lavin sitting behind Anderson Silva t UFC 136?[/QUOTE] Yes I did when Chael Sonnen called out Anderson Silva and TJ found it hilarious
[QUOTE=GiggidyGoo90;282321]Yes I did when Chael Sonnen called out Anderson Silva and TJ found it hilarious[/QUOTE] I also found it to be pretty funny, I almost felt like I was watching WWE or some crap like that. But yeah, it was cool seeing TJ sitting behind the champ. I meant to write about it on saturday but totally forgot.

Those two and Katie were roommates in Mexico. They've known how to do what is necessary on camera as exhibited by their last challenge together. Beth and Tonya are also good friends -- no surprise to long time vevmo readers. The angst between them over the pool incident ended quickly during the summer of 2007 with an apology from Tonya. As for The Drama Mafia: MTV's episode 5 summary ends with "When all is said and done, Nehemiah, Wes, Aneesa and Beth agree to join forces in an effort to take down the other alliance -- but is Wes just putting on an act?" There is a far deeper background to the Drama Mafia which was fashioned during one of Beth's photo shoots just before the cast left for Brazil. Others present were Johanna, Trishelle, Svetlana, Mark, Syrus, Tonya and Derrick (and me). The alliance was not a surprise, and it wasn't fashioned well into the challenge. It was all fiction from the cast's perspective, creating one of the first interesting counter-alliances on a challenge. Most people weren't aware that Beth also had an excellent relationship with both Kina and Jodi -- video you won't see in any episode because it runs counter to the storyline. It's also worth asking, "Do you think Beth is going to bring her two children with her" to wherever? She is certainly not leaving them behind in LA, and I'm not available the rest of the year for diaper duty for Nicholas, as much as I adore the little guy.
Looks like another season starring Cara Maria....Sounds like the cast may be leaving fairly soon, from what I've heard, possibly right before Halloween. [url=http://vevmo.com/vbimghost.php?do=displayimg&imgid=11899][img]http://vevmo.com/imagehosting/18234e9b5ae6770c9.png[/img][/url]

Tori was in the area and stopped by to say hi to friends.

So, this may or may not sound stupid, but do the challengers actually get paid, regardless of whether or not they won?
