Bananas and Natalie pretty much in a zoned out meditative state holding their arms up for 5+ hours, which was preceded by an eating challenge of cookies and thick fermented milk that took their partners an hour and a half to complete. Hope the final doesn't suck


...and the final did suck. Run a 5k and eat some nasty food. OK.

Was rooting pretty hard for Joss and Sylvia the entire time, because they seemed like "good people". What a boneheaded decision to give up your control in a million dollar final though. I think the extensions are what I hate most about Ashley.

Curious why they stopped whatever elimination bananas/tony and Natalie/Paulie were doing, then did another one two days later which was drinking nasty milk and holding your hands above your head.

Challenge twitter is something else too. Saw a bunch of spoilers for the season currently filming in the midst of people arguing.

I thought it was very odd that hunter/Ashley were able to use the grenade or at least choose to use it after every other team turned down that opportunity. Knowing that no others were using it was a bigly advantage which made me think that producers knew what Ashley was going to do and wanted that outcome.

But these finals are awful.
On a scale of 1 to Chris Brown, how pissed is he?

The Challenge itself sucks nowadays. All the want is drama. The show was much better when it was more about the daily mission/voting/elimination and just a bit of them doing out. Now some episodes are completely centered around a night out. Give me the Duel 3 or Old School vs New School in a team format. Both won't happen.

I heard the old producer is coming back, so the final might be legit again. Remember the day when it was an accomplishment just to finish (pip)?

I only watched the last 15 minutes of the premier, but I'm all in on this season...again.

There's some strong looking competitors this season and the games look tough, but we've been fooled before. All the strong personalities is gonna make for a ton of #$!&@ drama that dominates most of the show, but at least this thing looks fresher overall. It should be good. Sucks for that mexican dude tho, he looked like a player.
