re: The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2
Turbo is absolutely the right pick. CT is easily 250-260 right now. He is exactly the kind of guy who would coast to the final and then gas out and cost the team.

I bet Sean would have beaten Bear. Clearly Laurel picked Idris because she wanted to see what he had in store for her, and Jordan listened to Bananas.

The UK men can match up decently with the US, but the American women are so much better than the UK side. I’m surprised we don’t have Kailah or Jenna this season.

Also it’s interesting how Bananas is basically in none of the trailer. I bet it’s another early exit for him based on the editing.

re: The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2
Last season’s finale was very intense. I’m convinced the only vets who could have finished it are Wes, Jordan, and Road Rules Derrick.

Not Bananas, not fat arse CT, not Tony, not Leroy. They now have ringers like Turbo, Paulie, Theo, and Joss who are either literally pro athletes or who have so much more of an athletic background than the Real World people.

Unbelievable how well CT and John know Wes and the game. I get it, they've been doing it for 15 yrs with him, but they called everything beat by beat.

Amazing how John has let a lot of the guys from last year rise to the top as well in the drama dept. He's actually under the radar right now.

Ive read Bananas lives with his mom and literally just lives off the money hes made on this show. I cant decide if thats awesome or just a completely lucky loser. Falls somewhere in the middle.

Well, John is a hypocrite because is playing people the same way Wes is.

I bet Jordan is gonna take Wes out for going to Joss with that info

The problem with Turbo is that no one will send him into elimination out of fear, thus giving him no chance to switch teams.

He's a far better fit with team UK, and CT (obviously) and Kyle are both better fits with USA.

If Wes feels like he's going to get boxed out with USA, I could easily see him throwing a challenge to go into an elimination against Bear so he can try to switch sides.

USA has so much ego, it's going to be tough to keep that team together.

I couldn’t tell if Turbo and Paulie were fighting or if that was a production edit. He definitely gets into it with Jordan.

Watching how Sean did on this episode once again shows just how much this show is like a medium security prison. Being mentally stable, respectful, non-confrontational and under the radar get you absolutely nowhere

Entirely reasonable person and he is laughed at even by Turbo.

So true. Sean had no idea how much he was being manipulated, because he's thinking like normal would in that situation -- I tell the truth and they respect me and they'll hood true to what they say.

You could see it a lot even in some of the champs vs stars seasons, even with elite world class athletes, they didn't have the mental manipulation game and werent insane so they faltered.

Turbo really only survives because of how much he scares others and how much he wins. His actual strategy game of laying low and staying out of the fray wouldnt work for most people. And I think that's what Sean was trying to do.

CT looks to have gotten bigger...he might be back on the roids. He’s not near as lean but he’d be hell in a physical comp. I’d love to see him and Johnny Bananas have another physical comp for elimination. Hell tonight’s episode shows the house is still scared of him. He got pissed and the cut went straight to showing him squatting close to 300 pounds. That ain’t the CT that’s been on the show the last few times.

Would be awesome. This is what I’m rooting for. Plus his girl Dee is over there, not to mention Joss and Rogan, so it makes a lot of sense.

I could see Paulie and Cara doing the same thing. They are close with CT and with Laurel big dicking Cara all season they will need a backup plan.

Obviously Kyle will want to switch.

Mixing the teams will make things much more interesting.


And yeah like someone else said, John is the biggest hypocrite ever, as always.

How dare Wes try to forge relationships with the other side!!! He’s so shady!!

That was 225 lbs. on the bar which isn’t really impressive for a guy that’s probably 6’4” and 265 lbs.

re: The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2
The problem with Bananas’ game the last few years is his only truly ally is Leroy and Leroy sucks. The vets that normally stick together have turned on him.

re: The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2
I’ll be interested to see the Bananas Zack relationship after that weird breakdown last season.


They are also setting up for Jordan to turn on Wes and become a Bananas ally. Not sure how Tori will factor in there.

Caught one small part of the episode and it was Wes talking game, and Johnny talking shite about Wes to Josh. This pretty much tells you everything you need to know about both guys. Wes is strategizing and trying to come up with a plan, while Johnny is obsessed with Wes.

I think Johnny knows Wes is flat out smarter than him in general, and better than him politically. It drives him crazy.

Johnny’s entire political game for years was that he was friends with Kenny and Evan so people should not come after him. Even after they were banned from the show, that was what got him by in the game. People just didn’t target him. It never made sense.

Is CT still in this game?

Sorry, I haven't watched yet. I'll catch up next week.

Yep, but now he is competing with the British team

He is also 50 pounds heavier than he was in his best years, whereas Wes and Jordan are the same size as usual. I think Zach has generally lost muscle mass over the years and now just sticks out because he is taller than everyone but Theo.

Go back and look at "Thor" Zack...he was probably 15lbs heavier and of pure mass. He was probably either lifting way more because he had just gotten done playing football in college or he was juiced to ten gills (probably a little bit of both).

I know he got way into crossfit at one time and I think was even dating one of the high level chick competitors. He's basically admitted that now he's just in the show because they keep calling every year and the money is good. His basic fee is probably around $50,000+ ..then every week he goes more that's just icing on top.

He can basically just go through the motions and make it halfway through a season because of his physical skills. He openly says his heart isn't in it, but it's too good to pass up.

Just think about it, he probably actually films for about 4 mo a year and probably makes easy six figures. Not s bad gig.
