This week on my favorite guilty pleasure “The Challenge: Battle of the Exes” there is a mix of sexual tension and desperation. Camilla gets super wasted (even for “Real World” standards) and totally freaks out on her teammate Johnny for not loving her as much as she loves him. The two eventually patch things up but I am sure we will see another episode from mentally unstabel Camilla before the end of the season. Ty and Paula have been going a bit to hard on the flirting for a girl with a boyfriend. Ty claims he is going to bang her adding another plot line to the season finding out just how big of a skank Paula is. Abram and Cara Maria are still having issues with Cara’s commitment issues. Things take a turn for the worse when the perform the worst at the challenge and are sent directly into the dome. Mark and nut job Robin end up winning the challange and become the power couple for the first time this season. The two decide to send dome regulars Ty and Emily in the dome which again really pisses off Emily. Cara Maria is no match to the pissed off Emily who takes her down fairly easily. While mad man Abram is able to beat Ty in the first round, Ty comes back and wins the final two. Abram and Cara Maria are sent packing to deal with their relationship issues without being manipulated by reality TV.
What is it about past cast members of “The Real World” and “Road Rules” that makes then so compelling to watch? Like a trash can on fire or a youtube clip of someone being injured. The Social experiment has evolved in a way to create the most conflict possible and make back stabbing a part of the game. This week on “The Challenge: Battle of the Exes” the gang all decides to paint their faces like animals and you guessed it get wasted. Robin decides to prove how awkward she is deciding to be a Vampire instead. I was happy to say goodbye to super annoying Jasmine. Not sure who this four-foot wreck of a human being thinks she is or why she is so overly cruel to her partner Tyrie, but am happy she was sent packing. The two of them got taken down by the only same-sex couple Aneesa and Rachel. The girls are sent in to the dome by Johnny and Camila whose chemistry and abilities has made them the team to beat and the Power Couple once again. It seems Johnny is still holding a grudge against Rachel from a past challenge and even gets Mark involved in all the Drama. The feuding Tyrie and Jasmine have no chance against Rachel who basically takes them both down on her own. Meanwhile the shows star-crossed lovers CT and Deim finally start to communicate and seem a bit closer ro rekindling their romance. Hopefully they will win a challenge soon, which I bet would help set off some sparks. “The Challenge: Battle of the Exes” air on Wednesday at 10pm on MTV. I for one have my DVR set to record.
