i feel like the returning people will be

katie, beth, trishelle, jonna, jisela & aneesa for girls 

latterrian, darrell, teck, derrick & mark for the guys 

ruthie, kellyanne & yes are wild cards for me, i think they could be back but they weren't and aren't too interesting. ruthie has her drama with aneesa though.

I could see Katie and Trishelle sitting out. Trishelle keeps flipping back and forth. 

I have no idea why Big Easy & Jisela was jumping on KellyAnne's throat for defending Kendal... it's sad

This reunion was completely pointless

Just finish the reunion and here's my final thoughts 

Love the set up, it's amazing to look at

TOO MUCH Jemmye & Jisela I was kinda turned of by how they was acting, I think Maria wasn't feeling Jisela either at some parts of this

Im glad we got to see some unseen footage of Katie convincing Trishelle not to go and quit

It was weird for them to talk about Arissa like that but I'm glad Jisela check them to not make fun 

Not a fan of Aneesa at all and I get where Jisela is coming from but honestly it wasn't that deep to lose 20+ years of friendship over a little game lie

The reunion seemed extremely rushed idk what it is but it seemed like they had nothing to talk about

Yes Duffy being wholesome as always ❤️

The reunion was kinda pointless because you didn't have people like Trishelle, Katie, Kendal, & Arissa to speak on their big moments 

Derrick little last minute shit wasn't needed at all

Overall: If they do another reunion try to have more RELEVANT people show up, there was no reason for Big Easy, Derrick, or even Darrell to be there tbh...

Jisela was doing way too much, IMO.  I think her extended time in the spotlight has gone to her head. I understand where she is coming from with the Aneesa situation, but no amount of explaining still justifies ending a 20 year friendship over a minor game move. I think she was looking for a way to exit the friendship for whatever reason and jumped on the first excuse she could find. She also looks like a whole clown with this Alton situation. The whole house confirmed to her face how he was constantly talking about his baby mama in the house and she's still got blinders on. Anyways, love her or hate her, she's entertaining so I expect her to be back.

Jemmye was also inserting herself in a lot of conversations as per usual. But other than the two J's and a few deleted scenes, there was nothing on the reunion that the after shows didn't cover.

I think Nate got annoyed with Jisela at one point too. He checked her when she was acccusing people for coming for Arissa's beliefs.

 

why aren't I seeing the reunion? I have Paramount plus!

Are you guys not on the east coast?

Edit: nvm

It could've been a scare, we won at least for now

They have zero reason to change this unless people from RW/RR/FM start declining. 

Thoughts:

-People are complaining about the reunion, but I kind of liked it, because I liked seeing them together. I would say I hate that Kendal wasn't there but in a room with those big mouths, I think she would have just been very awkward and I would have felt bad for her. I don't think they bashed her that bad. I think just like they said she overthinks things and that can be a lot, which even Jonna and her bestie KellyAnne admitted.

-I'm glad they showed Katie trying to talk Trishelle out of leaving because that gives a more fair portrayal of the situation and Katie as a friend. Jemmye was also trying to stick up for Trishelle like KellyAnne did for Kendal though because Trishelle still didn't have to throw low personal blows. Trishelle was wrong.

-I was laughing so hard at the lights going dark in that clip after Arissa's exit. Darrell a fool for the Arissa stuff he said about choking. lol. I don't like them making fun of her spirituality if it offends her, but if Jonna is telling the truth about Arissa saying she took it as a compliment to be called a witch, it's not surprising. These days it's popular to be out of the broom closet. There's a whole social media movement around it. I've seen it.

-I liked Yes, Easy, and Jemmye shutting down Jisela's coaster comment. Respect to your heart in that elimination, Jisela, but I don't like when people throw shots at those for making it to a final without an elimination. Staying out of an elimination is exactly the smart thing you want to do. That's one thing I was with Jemmye on this season. Enough with the volunteering. If you want to be team captain, go ahead and put yourself at risk, honey. Easy went into an elimination and still said it best.

- Derrick is so corny. He used to be so cool and ****** back in the day. 

- Why does Jonna always make me emotional? And she's so humble. People on here were saying she wasn't really an All Star and she said she was even thinking that herself so she was honored to compete. What a woman.

- I like the hosts Maria and Nate are a great duo imo.

- The reunion was pointless especially without each side talking about their issues and stating their sides. I am glad they didn't show one of the bashing Katie.

- I love Kellyanne on this reunion old her was coming out, I love that side of her that she is never scared to speak her mind.

- Jisela is so annoying! She is so delusional always think she is right. Her coasting comment is so hypocritical since she was coasting too using an scapegoat through the season only want that elimination cause of big easy she really didn't do anything. She would have cost a guy the final regardless of her leg. Her beef with Aneesa is so stupid to be honest I just think Jemmye got in her head telling her how Aneesa "plays" this game.

- " I was the first one invited" - Jisela. Does anyone even buys that? Let's be honest before this challenge Jisela wasnt a known person to this show nothing she did back then was memorable , she got lucky others declined or had issues like the newer girls.

- Jemmye is wearing the same dress as Marie ex on the beach reunion ? Either way she was also annoying as usual

- Big Easy is another delusional one he shouldn't be ask after this he doesn't bring anything to the table. He thinks he can win a final after finishing 10 on this.

- Derrick is so desperate for a final call doing to much and looking corny.

Derrick really thinks hes in the Wwe lmao

Derrick really thinks hes in the Wwe lmao

i haven't even watched yet but I saw the clip and idk why I was ever a fan of his

biggest damn cornball

 

I doubt this show did very well viewerswise so they'll probably make some version of All Stars from Survivor, BB and The Challenge so all fans from those show can get the nostalgia. HonestIy I don't mind it I feel like eventually they'll run out of "All Stars" and we'll start seeing Charlie from RW San Diego or Jacques or other randoms like that. Now they'll actually have 10 or so real All Stars.  

I only watched a few episodes of this though so maybe I'm not the demo for it lol 

Nah, put some respect on Jacquese's name. Don't insult him by classing him with Charlie like that. He was hilarious and one of the most likable Real Worlders ever, my pick for most likable until Leroy. If that season aired today, people would be reminded of this. Wonder what he's up to today. San Diego cast had the best chemistry. He was the closest to Frankie (RIP) and came up with some of that season's funniest sayings inspired by his wasted castmates (Brad, Randy, Robin). Charlie was a joke.

I don't dislike him but I'm just saying eventually we'll start seeing the same people over and over again with random additions and I'm really not trying to see Derek Chavez, Sahar, Charlie and other non factors on a show that's supposed to be All Stars. Much of the cast this season I wouldn't consider All Stars I mean look who the Alts were so imagine season 3,4,5 etc. That plus low viewership it would make sense to eventually make the change to get 10 real All Stars from those big shows then everybody wins (Survivor and BB fans too).  

Trishelle, Tina, Janelle (BB), Parvati, Evel **** and others on the same show sounds fun to me over Big Easy, DericKKK, Ryan K etc. 

It could've been a scare, we won at least for now

Congrats, you won over rumor and unaccountable thread pontification and speculation... 

And to those blaming production, it's not BMP that would benefit here.  It is firmly in the cast's corner -- and I'm usually among the first to castigate BMP.   

So I'm guessing they only invited the finalists to the reunion because Kendal said she wasn't invited... however, she could've had Aneesa's spot.. especially if they were going to spend any time talking about her at all.

It's a question (rumor) I intend to put to the network execs that will be at the party tonight.  There are a number of "excuses" why someone in NY, disconnected from the Challenge fan base, might have mused about bringing in outsiders, including reducing costs by leveraging "outsiders" against current OG financial desires.  There is also the argument that reaching out for other reality stars should attract a larger audience inside the broader, key demographic.  In my view, the opposing argument is stronger.  AllStars is riding the current cultural nostalgia wave, and it's best to run as long and as fast as possible to satisfy consumers.  When and if AllStars casting runs out of quality options, then some adjustment in scope of the show might be needed.  It's not needed now. 

At the end of the day, entertainment TV is a business, and the bottom line is all that really matters to NY.

My God Jisela is annoying

Jisela and Jemmye always doing the most, also dead at Jem saying how kendal was campaigning on Twitter to come back on the show when her *** got called right before departure and had nothing else going on in her life so she could drop everything she was doing, and then tries to pull the "i was retired" card

Very true about Jemmye. Jisela was so annoying I didn't even realize Jemmye was annoying. And none of the men there added anything. It was a weird reunion though I loved both hosts. 

I loved KellyAnne this reunion! I honestly think she's just simmered down a bit in the actual house and just enjoys her experience, but she's never been one to not speak her mind. Forever one of my faves. So glad her and Jonna shined during the final and the reunion.
