To review: Lolo winds up quitting, Josh (and Nany) doesn't get sent to the Crater, and we have a "Security Breach" cliffhanger. But in case you didn't hear, the "OG" edition of The Challenge will be going exclusively to Paramount+, and that pisses me off more than anything right now.
Regarding Josh . . . .oy. I fear that I might be going soft on him. When he fucked up, I thought it was because he was trying to get the rope for Nany. They DQ, and Devin immediately starts pouring the salt into the wound. It's not fun for me. It's like watching Puck repeatedly baiting Ellen way back in Battle of the Sexes. I didn't like Ellen at the time, but Puck was so much worse. Now, CT referring to Josh as "Goofy"? That was funny. Devin yelling at Josh as he pouts far away pained me.
And then Devin fucked up the mission. Perhaps there is karma in the universe.
Team T for the win. From the midseason preview, their relationship will be heading swiftly to the rocks. Right now, though, it's fun to see CT pump up Big T, followed by Big T exceeding expectations. And then wore way too much leather for the weekly party. So cute!
Lolo might have gotten off easy. My guess is that BMP fears being seen as having a double standard because Lio left without any parting shots from TJ. As much as Lolo made my eyes roll, I can understand her saying the show was harder than the Olympics. All she has to do is slide down a hill. The real bright side to her leaving is that we got to see Nam being too pure for words. He is so cute. She bitches about losing a boot while swimming, he takes his off. He was probably frustrated by her more than anyone watching, but he put on his best face. Or maybe there's ten hours of him screaming "Fuck you!" was cut out.
I don't know what happens next. Does CT get to face Devin? Will everyone be crossed up, leading to Tula vs. Nany? Or is TJ going to chuck something weirder at us? I'm dreading Ashley coming back for a third time.
