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.
Another exciting week on “The Challenge: Battle Of The Exes,” where once again a team is sent home without being eliminated. This week it was rookies Dustin and Heather who were sent packing after Dustin seriously hurt his knee. Being that neither of then caused much drama or were complete train wrecks and that I don’t even know what season of “The Real World” they were on, they wont be missed. The cast had a chance to show off their lack of common knowledge this week and after a close call Leroy and Naomi were the bottom team. Paula and Dunbar won the challenge, becoming the power couple and deciding to send Ty and Emily into the dome. This really pissed off Emily who vowed revenge on Paula. Of coarse Ty and Emily won sending Leroy and Naomi packing. Aneese was also injured this week when she fell face first in the water and had to get stitches in her mouth. She was not sent home but she definitely won’t be eating any muff for a while. Still hoping CT and Diem will get back together and will be keeping my fingers crossed till next week. “” air on MTV Wednesday at 10pm, I for one have my DVR set to record!
The second episode of MTV’s “The Challenge: Battle Of The Exes” aired this week and two teams were sent home. Vinny (the gut) and Sara won the challenge and became both the power couple and safe from elimination. Vinny celebrated a little to hard and when drunk at the club ripped off Madi’s shirt exposing her fake boobs for all to see. Even though it wasn’t much of a shirt in the first place and her boobs were practically hanging out doing that to a woman isn’t cool! (even if they are a dumb slut!!) The producers agree that kind of behavior isn’t acceptable and booted him off the show. His partner Sara was also sent home even though she had nothing to do with it and immediately broke down in tears. Before they were sent home they were able to make Mandi even more upset by sending her into the dome. While she stepped up and was able to beat Naomi, her partner Wes(captain douchbag) was not able to take down Leroy and in the end Wes and Mandi were sent home. Not a good day for Mandi who was sexually harassed and sent Glad to see that Wes is gone cause he really is one of the most obnoxious assholes in “Real World” history.
The “Real World/Road Rules Challenge” is back for its twenty-second season and this time it’s a “Battle of The Exes”. This is one of my favorite guilty pleasures and am psyched that for this season MTV has teamed up couples from past seasons. That’s right all your favorite train wreck relationships are forced not only to live in the same house but to work together as a team. Among the exes teamed together are, law-breaker Abram with free spirit Cara Maria, brawler CT with cancer survivor Deim, old man Mark with slutty Robin, Lesbians Anessa and Rachel, obnoxious Wes with prissy Mandi, misogynistic Johnny with forgettable Camila and a bunch of other RW/RR retards. I a rooting for CT and Deim, both to win and to get back together. Their relationship looks to be a focal point of the season and the awkwardness of pairing them together is sure to make for great TV. Not a lot of surprises in the first episode other than host TJ Lavin still being alive. Wes is still a douche, a rookie team gets sent home first, and the casts biggest challenge is not getting black out drunk. The season takes place in Dominican Republic and at some point moves to Iceland. Each episode ends with two teams competing in a “Mad Max” type dome, where the loser goes home. One big change this season is that the winner of that weeks challenge becomes “The Power Couple” and decides who battles the loser in the dome. “The Challenge: Battle of The Exes” airs Wednesday 10pm on MTV, I for one have my DVR set to record!
