The Challenge: Burn Book (Spoilers)

Since Debut said anyone can add to this, I decided to make my own entry:

PAULA MERONEK

I first saw Paula on her Real World season, I was pretty young at the time (I think like nine?). I think the main thing I remembered about her was her anorexia plot, I thought she was cool and I sympathized with her.

Fast forward to the challenges..

Paula was cool on her first few challenges and I felt really bad for her during the Island. She was one of many who were screwed over by Bananas and ended up on that tragic shitfest of a boat for the final.. But Ev is one of my favorite cast members so I highkey wasn't pressed that Ev was favored over Paula. 

Paula has always been ******* annoying, she whines about everything and made it pretty hard for anyone to feel bad that she had never won a challenge because she was insufferable. This ***** literally wouldn't take a break from The Challenges and kept returning like can you take a break so maybe I won't dislike you as much the next time you show up? The only times she took breaks was during the Ruins and Seasons. 

I despised her during Rivals 1 when she laughed at Cara Maria being bullied and having shit thrown on her and was talking shit. I know that no one here likes Cara, but the way they bullied her in that scene was unnecessary and Paula's dusty *** had no room to laugh. Laurel rightfully CHECKED that stupid **** and called her out on her flaws. It was funny as hell watching her cry, "I'm an open book. Everyone knows where you can go with me.. *sniffles* *sobs*". Yeah it was funny when Cara was crying though right? Girl bye. 

I was hoping after she won Rivals 1 (unfortunately had to root for her cause of Ev) she would retire but nope.. Returned for Exes 1. She was annoying on there too, but good thing she didn't make it to the final.

Paula was just blessed with really good partners for both Rivals seasons she was on and she should be counting her lucky stars. She's a decent competitor but her attitude is trash and she is the epitome of someone who can dish something but can't take it. I'm glad she retired after her two winnings and hasn't been on my screen since 2013! Stay gone *****. Build some tough skin, and regrow your edges since you still haven't recovered from Laurel snatching you bald on Rivals 1.

K, I'm done now. 

That was beautiful Spectacular.

That was beautiful Spectacular.

Thank you Debut! I might add another entry in a minute, I'm in a roasting mood lmao

Oh great! I hope you do.

If you do another do Jenn. She needs to dragged to hell and back.

Oh God I forgot about her and her tragic eyebrows.. She's coming up soon *****

It's almost 3 AM in Jersey and I should be sleeping, but I can't sleep without one last roast: 

Big Easy.

I'm not sure where to begin with him tbh. I didn't mind him on Fresh Meat or Duel 1, the latter of which he actually had a decent showing on. I was afraid when he first came on the show his size would be a factor but he seemed dedicated. Or so I thought.

Then here comes Gauntlet 3.. Sighs.

I want to say it was the guys on the Vets team who caused their demise but Eric played a role, if not an even bigger one. Fam, you can't tell me that you've never seen any of the final challenges on these shows? They aren't a cake walk. Obviously you're going to need a good amount of stamina, endurance, etc to complete the final. This boy had everyone FOOLED, talking about he has a lot of heart and he can compete in a final, LOL. BOI if you don't take your overgrown *** somewhere. My mans couldn't even make it through one quarter of the final, out here swinging and wobbling down the steps lmaoooooo. I found it unfair that the Vets were disqualified cause Easy couldn't hang. It wasn't fair that the Rookies sucked that much, the Vets earned it! In later seasons people finished without having everyone there (ex: Cutthroat). I just found it odd how in this final TJ emphasized that EVERYONE on the team had to finish, but anyways. Vets losing meant the tragic trio (Tori, Rachel, and Johanna) got 50k and I wasn't here for it.. At all. 

I was surprised he came back for Cutthroat, after taking that big of an L I wouldn't have returned.. I didn't care for him here but I will say Laurel was unnecessary for coming at him like that, yeah he's type crusty but you didn't have to drag him like that Laurel lmaooooo save that roast for Paula (which she did and I was thankful). 

Seasons was also tragic for him, I don't get why he showed up. Sobbing @ Laurel declining cause he would've been on her team. He was really horrible here.. Yeah he lost weight but his skills didn't improve either. He was definitely dead weight on the FM Team and he wasn't trying to go in during that mission where he FELL and cost them safety? And then Brandon had to.. Go in? Wyd?????? If you were the reason for the team failing then GO IN. FOH with that. Him quitting that elimination made me mad, I mean I wasn't pressed for him to stay but you already had a horrible showing (G3) you don't want to prove yourself? I mean.. Ok. Camilla trying to complete the elimination even after they DQed left me for dead lmaoooooo

His showmance with Devyn was.. Yeah I'm not even going to get into that. Also, Devyn needs better wigs.. Them lace wigs not cutting it boo.

Overall, Easy was pretty trash and I'm glad he hasn't come back after Seasons. He's filler and always drags his teammates down, everytime. Stay home in Kentucky b. 

Another great dragging. I'm actually kinda surprised noone came for Eric until now. 

BLACK GUYS ON REAL WORLDMight be slightly off topic but they end up on The Challenge so I figured I'd state my opinion. I don't know if it's MTV or Bunim Murray's decision but stop casting corny black guys. Every since Las Vegas 2 I feel that they cast every guy based off of Leroy. We are not all corny, tell lame jokes, and try to sleep with girls (some who clearly aren't interested like redneck white girls ^). 

Really? You know Dean, Leroy and Jason aren't the same. They're very different. Only real similarity is that their black. Dean is African, not even first generation.

Personality wise, I think they are all the same. maybe not jason, but replace him with Tyrie. The black guys on RW are def a typecast. 

Another great dragging. I'm actually kinda surprised noone came for Eric until now. 

Same, I had to go through this entire thread cause I could've sworn he got dragged already lmao

Laurel

She tried to hype herself up as this bad *** that isn't afraid to step up to anyone but that act was a FAIL. She's really a punk that only goes after weak targets who she knows won't do anything. On the Free Agents reunion, she got in Theresa's face after Theresa said she wanted to punch her. Rewind back to the Rivals reunion, Jenn went after her and said the exact same thing in a WAY more aggressive way but Laurel just sat there looking stupid and did nothing. Why didn't she act all big and bad to Jenn like she did with Theresa??? Because you could tell she was afraid of Jenn and this is coming from someone who doesn't even like Jenn. 

And then she jumped on the Nia hate bandwagon and started disliking her just because Nia didn't say hello to her at the RW: Portland reunion which is funny since Nia didn't even know who she was lol. And on Free Agents, Laurel was nice and cordial with Nia but once she left, Laurel talked so much shit and got into an argument with her on Twitter knowing she was safe at her home thousands of miles away from the hurricane. She was clearly afraid of Nia. Laurel knew which girls to try and which girls to avoid. She's easily intimidated by girls with stronger personalities. She's lucky that Nia was eliminated early because I see Nia dragging the **** out of Laurel if they ever got in a screaming match. 

I agree with your post Justin, even though I like Laurel. Don't get why anyone on the show is ever afraid of Jenn, she looks like she can't fight and all she does is talk. 

I wanna see Laurel vs Nia so bad! They're both pretty much the same size so it would be fair.

PRODUCTION'S FOCUS ON DRUNKEN DRAMA

I think this is so single minded of production to just focus on drama that can be cause by ******* booze. While that can be fun to watch at times it's mostly just a waste of airtime and doesn't lead to anything interesting. Why MTV chooses to focus on that so much is just sad because you can get better drama from the competition..given they cast people whom are smart/strategic and can compete as well.

Cast for competition and trust me..drama will follow.

Let me get one up for Brian..

Tori Hall

She only did 3 challenges, but man did this ***** make it count. I hated her complaining about Frank and wanting to send him home all the time, even though he was BY FAR the best player on their team. Did she really expect her team to win that consisted mostly of those pathetic Austin roommates? I hated her entitled attitude when she got voted into the Gauntlet. 

And that entitled attitude carried over onto the Duel 2. Does anyone remember how *****y she acted towards Aneesa when she picked her? Apparently, you're not allowed to vote Tori into eliminations or she'll have a fit.

 The thing about Tori is she really never was a good competitor. She cried too much and was mentally weak. She beat Melinda (wow such an amazing competitor) in a Gauntlet and only got her first challenge win because of stupid Eric. Didn't do anything special on the Duel 2 other than cry about doing height challenges and she ended up losing to Aneesa. 

She didn't do anything of note on Cutthroat either and only got far because she had the Red team on her side and voting in the better player, Camila, every time. I mean she had me agreeing with Bananas of all people (when he called her a ***** in the confessionals.) 

She also turned fun loving Brad into a boring, conniving person so that loses more points for her in my book. 

Debut, what are your thoughts on Camila on cutthroat? You hate her but I feel like since tori was such a ***** you'd take her side this time.

I agree with your post Justin, even though I like Laurel. Don't get why anyone on the show is ever afraid of Jenn, she looks like she can't fight and all she does is talk. I wanna see Laurel vs Nia so bad! They're both pretty much the same size so it would be fair.

That's exactly how I feel about Jenn lol someone should do a post on her because she was insufferable from Fresh Meat II-Rivals. 

I know people hate Danny, but Nehemiah isn't all that bad lol.

Loved the Tori post. It's funny how she became more awful throughout each of her appearances. There was absolutely no growth in her character lol 

Debut, what are your thoughts on Camila on cutthroat? You hate her but I feel like since tori was such a ***** you'd take her side this time.

Cutthroat Camilla was tricky for me because The Red Team was so shitty to her so in a way I felt for her but at the same time she took the spot of another RW girl just out of the blue and I was NOT happy with that at the time. Plus I think it was said a the reunion that Camilla was horrid so she may have deserved some of the shit she got(but Tori said that so that could be just a cover up for the shitty way they treated her. To justify it basically). So overall I was with her..but I wasn't if that makes sense.

Jenn (Fresh Meat 2 to Rivals)

Jenn was very rootable in her first few challenges (The Inferno 3, The Island, The Duel 2). She stayed low key on drama and competitor wise, she was decent. Plus she had that attitude of not being afraid of a challenge so a lot of us rooted for her. 

I was even team Jenn when Fresh Meat 2 started (I also really liked her partner, Noor).  But this was the start of Jenn's game plan of being a "flip flopper." I hated how she played both sides of the Kenny/Wes rivalry. She totally betrayed her alliance with Wes after it was clear he no longer had the numbers and she switched to Kenny's side full time. 

Jenn also started becoming more of a bully towards weaker minded players. She did it with Mandi on Fresh Meat 2, Paula on Cutthroat, and finally Cara Maria on Rivals. Okay, I'm sure all of them were annoying to an extent and I'm not gonna pretend I was ever a fan of them. But it was an ugly side of Jenn's to see. I was also never an Adam King fan, but I remember her treating him like shit on Rivals. It's funny how on all of these challenges, the best she could do was win last place in the final. I remember being satisfied she couldn't finish the Rivals finale with Mandi.

Surprisingly, I didn't mind Jenn on Cutthroat. Actually, I kind of liked her that season and it's still her best showing, IMO. That's also the only season I was fine with her not seeing an elimination.

This is true. I ended up rooting for the Blue Team at the end of Cutthroat because I hated Tori and all the awful people on the Red Team. Also disliked Laurel and Sarah on the Grey team. I couldn't recall much about her on that challenge. I just didn't like her treatment of Paula (who was her BFF just on the Duel 2) who is too easy of a target. Then again, I can't really recall why they were arguing in the first place. All I remember Jenn saying to Paula was "you've done this much challenges and still haven't won." 

I was rereading Debut's post about TJ and I really agree with the part about how he comes at people who quit. Sometimes it's necessary (Ex: Brandon) but sometimes it's just like wyd? (Ex: Ashli on the Island). I remember TJ really annoying me when he called out Ev for not trying in the elimination against Kelly Anne in the Ruins. Do you think she wanted to quit? The entire house purposely put her against her best friend just to be childish and blind sided her the entire time. That is ****** up. Trust is very important on a team and clearly the trust had been broken after the Champions pulled that stunt. I like Ev because clearly, friendship means more to her than any amount of money and why would she help the Champions win a dime after they pulled that? She was clearly the best girl on the squad, they played themselves by trying that. TJ didn't have to interject and talk about her quitting. You don't know her circumstances so shut up. She was there crying and you could tell how pissed off she was. She preferred to sacrifice herself so that Kelly Anne could have a chance at the money and I respect her for that. Ev clearly has no problem winning challenges, she's tied with Crustonica for female with the most challenge wins. I just felt like TJ needs to fall back sometimes. It's them competing, not you. Relax.

Does anyone know if KA and Ev are still good friends? Their friendship was adorable and if there were ever to be an allies challenge I would love to see them work together. I also want any excuse for Ev to come back lmao

Apparently they still are. Kellyanne said so in her facebook chat thing I believe.
