However, upon rewatch, I find myself sympathizing with and feeling sorry for her. Everyone was just downright nasty to her. It made me uncomfortable to watch the bullying behavior. I liked Kina for the most part, but man, she sure hated Cara! She kept trying to put Cara down at the reunion, but Cara just shrugged it all off and didn't take the bait. Poor Derrick. Alton and Landon were absolute beasts! Katie was surprisingly quiet. Overall, I really liked the cast and the camaraderie between everyone this season. Cara was one of the most gorgeous girls to ever be on this show, and she was confident and owned who she was. I’m not at all surprised in retrospect that Kina felt threatened by her. What’s funny about Beth is that she apparently had close relationships with many of the cast members offscreen. She was the original Challenge “character,” playing up her villain persona while being almost like a mama bear to many in real life. It’s funny to look back and see what constituted a villain during the days of G2 and the Duel. It’s funny also to remember the days when there was a sort of stigma and onus to prove something that followed people like Brad and CT for doing so many challenges and never winning one. It was so much easier to win back then, so if you hadn’t notched a win in a few outings it made people really start to comment. These days it’s much more unusual to have won a challenge and you absolutely can’t do it without being very physically fit. I’m trying to think what the first challenge with a really grueling, modern era final was. Rivals? 1 Link to comment
