THE CHALLENGE IS BACK!
Order has finally been restored in the Reality TV world. Tonights episode got off to an amazing start. I can't believe that I had never thought of merging "stripping" and "basketball" until this evening.
CT squared up against Theresa and the two agreed to play to 10 points. After each score, the opponent had to take off an article of clothing. Shortly after winning the game, CT was presented with a chilled bottle of Vodka. Not water boys and girls... VODKA.
If the show allowed fans to pay money, so that they could see web feeds of the Challenge House - I would pay $49.99 to happily see and not get audio of the real-time footage for the season. Make this happen Bunim/Murray. Make this HAPPEN.
The first episode has way to much stuff to fully explore. There's over 20 characters to follow, so I won't spend too much time recapping the activities.
The first challenge of the season was pretty awesome tho'. It consisted of splitting the cast into 2 large teams. Then breaking the team into 3 small groups to climb 42 flights of stairs - which resulted in a strange race/brawl. After the stair climb was done, the groups then had to hand a key over to the second group so that they could solve a puzzle... that group then relayed another key to the third group which was asked to walk on a rolling log suspended 42 stories above the ground to pick up a flag and ring a bell.
I fucking love this show.
The loosing team (half the house) was officially up to go into the elimination challenge/jungle... Tonight's elimination involved shoulder pads, a sand pit and stuffing a ball into a trash can for points. I'd explain it in further detail, but it defeats the purpose of you dropping everything you're doing and just watch the show.
Baller of the week.
LaToya - 55 points
LaToya fucking brought it in week 1 of the Challenge. She picked up 20 points for causing the arrival of a vehicle with a Siren. 25 points for getting TJ to say "you killed it" and an additional 10 points for winning an elimination challenge.
