MTV’s The Challenge: Rivals Episode 1

Ok after much waiting and anticipating MTV’s Challenge season 100 (jk!) finally premiered. Now there were many reasons why I could not wait for this season, two of which are named CT and Wes. Don’t judge!

I remember watching Real World: Paris in which a young CT came onto the scene. He was the bad boy misunderstood with issues, of course I’d be interested, a person is always interested in what they know… and I know issues, and being misunderstood. I related with him and had a soft spot for him. It’s been a long time since Paris aired but I can remember things from here and there and there was always something going on with CT and someone trying to help him. Later on in the challenges it was Diem, who I wish was on this one too, she went home too early on her last challenge, she’s great and should def. be there over other girls that are there… ANYWAYS moving along…

During the begining half CT reveals his brother had been murdered and he himself had been shot in the back. WOW. I had not heard that and felt so bad for him. It must have been hard on him, his loss, but I am glad that he made it through and seem’s to be changing his life for the better. Sometimes it takes tragedies like that to change a person and I am glad he seems to be going strong and did not let that distroy him. I am glad he made it through the first episode! Last time he didn’t, he got into a fight with Adam (his Rival partner) and went home the first day. I hope CT makes it to the end!

Anyone miss his hair though? I think CT looks great with either hairdo but he had some awesome hair back in the day. In a challenge though I would assume shorter hair is better, less complications to deal with the better I think. I love that he tried to put Kenny in his place cause honestly Kenny’s been a real stuck up shit that think’s he’s gods gift to mankind… Kenny you ain’t all that.. its a shame that Wes is partnered with him because I want someone to send Kenny home but not Wes…

A lot of the people seem to think CT isn’t a thread, but during that first challenge they were the first to make it through the farthest and clear all the ribons they needed to in the challenge, I hated that those new boys did it faster, they need a reality check not a win on their first try. Those who think CT isn’t a contender need to take a look at themselves in the mirror because something is not right with them.

Also looks like CT is gonna have a lot of fun this season!


Now lets move on to the 2nd reason I could not wait for Rivals to start… Wes. Now I always looked at Wes as the next gen CT, he’s hot headed and big. He looks like he could put any of the guys down (except CT that is). Wes was a former ASU student (yo! I’m gonna be at ASU in the Fall 2011!!) and had his debut on Real World: Austin. Now I did not see the Austin season because I was getting fed up with Real World at the time and had a hard time keeping up with MTV, but I did catch the Challenges in which Wes was on. I also caught Cutt Throat in which his ex Johanna was on… man I do not understand how Wes came across in the house as the jerk when Johanna and Kenny were the bad guys IMO, Johanna especially. She’s the one who hurt Wes’ feelings, she’s the one who kept messing with him their, she’s the one who was all up on Kenny, she’s the one who tried to threaten him with his house. BITCH much? I hope Wes can move on from her to ANYONE at this point, anyone would be a step up I think from someone like that. I do hope that Wes and CT can keep from going at each other cause it’s just something you would expect, but as stated CT seem’s to be a changed person and good for him, so all Wes has got to do is keep his cool too. Make it to the end Wes, but try and get Kenny to hit you so he can go home…


Now another reason I was looking forward to this season was the return of some of the Vets! Aneesa and Robin! They were always fun to watch on the past challenges so I was glad to see them back. I was NOT glad to see that bitch Laurel scheme her way into getting the house to vote them into the first “Jungle” the elimination round. That was jacked the hell up. Again these new kids need to prove themselves and Laurel has not. Her first challenge she was partnered with Kenny and his big bloated head seems to have spread to her and given her one. She seemed to think she was the shit, and she was not, is not. She needs to go and she needs to go fast. Robin wanted to be there to earn money for her kid, for her little boy and Aneesa was there to come back strong! Because of some “think she’s the shit” bimbo they were sent home. The fact that these people are voting in Vets over the new kids who’ve not proven anything is annoying the hell out of me. The new guys as well who seem to think they know everything and are gonna win… they need a wake up call!

My hope for this season is that CT gets to the end as the 1st place winner and Wes 2nd. And Laurel GONE!

I also want to note I am glad that TJ recovered from his fall, and was shocked when I saw that. I had not heard of that in the online/news world and did not know that. I hope he gets back 100% to his old self.
