S02.E07: Champs vs. Stars: Go Deep, or Go Home

Recommended Posts


The pairings are fun but not at all fair.  How can a girl/girl team ever hope to beat guy/guy?  They don't attempt to make gender neutral challenges that are often found on Survivor - balance, endurance, puzzles, etc.  They should have gone with pairs of guy/girl.  And if the numbers weren't equal, they should have waited until they were to switch.

When the pairing switch was announced CT had the typical reaction of the alpha males on The Challenge.  He was worried he would be "burdened" with a girl.  And unless there's a compelling reason for him to be an asshole to Mike, it's another strike against CT in my book.  He wouldn't dare treat TJ that way.  That CT temper is still lurking.

Selita really thinks she's all that.  I can't stand Jozea but I really respect that he jumped in the water and tried.  Selita is from the Cayman Islands, so of course she can swim.   Most of us didn't grow up on little islands, and a lot of people were not privileged with swimming lessons.  She's rather elitist and I can't wait for her to go.

I guess I'm wrong about this, but I was unaware there were a lot of adults who don't know how to swim (even enough to tread water).  That seems dangerous - but judging by other forums it's more common than I thought.

Really don't see much value in having alliances at this point.

They just want to make sure it's all Champs at the end?  Why does it matter?  Maybe producers told them to keep playing this up to the end.

Or maybe the vets want to maintain alliances for the next Challenge, assuming that it's true they really don't get any of the prize money and it all goes to charity.

I'd like to see some of the Stars like Louise do regular Challenges than the people they get from other reality shows.

But many of these stars have other time commitments and probably wouldn't stay dorm style with lowly reality tv cast members for weeks.

God, how much of this is left? Just end it already.

I saw it more as testament to how incredibly fucking stupid Jozea is. The pool was right there! Maybe try 5 feet before jumping into 13 and hoping for the best? Maybe next week he’ll touch a stove because he’s sure he can handle whatever heat the iron holds. Or drink poison. There is seriously something wrong with his brain. What was that, “I’ll even jump out of an airplane. I’ve done it before.” Huh? I’ve made an origami crane before, but that has nothing to do with anything going on here, kid. He is totally messed up and hopeless. Sounds like it’s hereditary, too, if that Grandma leaving him on a rock in the ocean story is true. I’m dubious, though, since it seems Darwinism would have eliminated such a bloodline in 2 generations. 

I did like how they didn’t even have divers there to rescue him, because it’s a pool and they were expecting most normal people wouldn’t jump off a cliff and hope for the best.  

Selita is a bitch and can do suck all by herself. Even by herself, she should’ve been able to do that inside 30 minutes, seeing as the winning team did it in 6. Tony and Shane both classify as a waste of a human life. Rooting for nobody.

Seems like trouble for these teams that can’t agree on their vote. It’s more incentive to boot those teams since there’s no way to depend on who they will target.

And that clip of CT bitching at Miz to step back into the Challenge. See, Miz actually did something with his life, CT. That’s why he’s the host and you come back season after season to fight with trash 20 years younger than yourself for the mere potential of financial scraps.

It would only be dangerous if you go in the water.  I guess there's extra worry when you're on a ship.  My mom is unable to swim after a near-drowning as a child so I'm always hyper aware when she's with me.  On a NY ferry I check out where the life vests, etc. are, and when she goes on a cruise they always do the safety drills where the passengers don their life jackets.  

It's quite common that people in more urban areas and/or lower income folks to be unable to swim, due to lack of access or inability to pay for lessons.  My mom made sure I had lessons for years.

This!  So much!  And I am shocked that production allowed him to jump in without a flotation device of some sort given that he had been talking about not being able to swim AND being terrified of the water for a couple days.  They didn't even send people in to save him!  Were they just going to let him sink to the bottom if Selita hadn't risked herself to push him towards the rope???  And I can't even understand people on the sidelines laughing at him...like what the hell.  And to be fair to Selita, I don't think she was being elitist; I think she was more shocked that someone would participate in a competition like this, where water challenges are very common, and not have a basic comfort level to be able to at least float.

I'd love to see Louise, LoLo, Boobie, Lil Mama, even Casper, on a regular season.  Louise, Casper, Boobie, and Lil Mama understand the politics and mental aspects of this game, and they are all fierce competitors, who wouldn't be scared to shake things up.  LoLo is also fierce, but she's craycray and would just make for good Challenge TV.

Hey Drake. Looking good Drake. Shirtless should be your new look because damn you have a nice body. I watch this show with half an eye while doing other things. When i look up Tori's ass is on my TV like every time I looked up there was her ass with her swimsuit jammed up her crack. Was it all the swimsuits that were like that Mama wore short but I don't know what the other woman swam in.

While I agree with Tony that if you can't swim or do things that you know you are going to have to do on a show like this don't come on. But last season the entire team couldn't swim so that was what like 6-8 people that should never do a challenge again. And fuck you Tony and how the stars were screwing you with MVP. If you still had control of the team the MVP would bounce between Tony and Wes. Because we already seen last time how he won't give up power to a woman. 

Why make this a 2 part episode they already gave away who is going home. We already seen 2 of the 3 teams in promos before, during and after the show. 

Sure CT Mike is going to say goodbye to all that WWE only to be a contest on a low ranking show on MTV. This show doesn't even get reruns. Lol at delusional Shane in the promos getting loud about being famous on his own and not for sleeping with someone. Casper has legit movies on his IMDb page (haven't seen any) and Shane would be upstaged by a teen Mom. No one know who you are Shane.

Don’t think it classifies as a spoiler since the preview does blow it, so it must be Selita/Jozea, since Casper is seen arguing with Shane and CT is shown having a fit at alleged cheating by somebody.

"Today, we're going to see how smart Jozea is by giving him an anchor and telling him it's like a pair of water wings. Stay tuned!!!"

Why can't I quit this shitshow? Too many format changes. I'm thinking maybe half of the charities involved are regretting getting involved. Also, I'm willing to bet Special Olympics told Johnny to take a season off.

Anybody want to point out that Shane is an obnoxious shit? He's one of the bigger disappointments of the last few years. I didn't have problems with him in his first four Challenge tours, but he just sucks now. Sadly, the rest aren't much better, and I'm still nervous at the prospect of CT backsliding. I did get a chuckle seeing the clip of him challenging Mike.

My love for Louise knowns no bounds, beautiful women with British accents do it to me ever single time.  However, I do not think she would ever do a regular season, I mean I would love to see it but I highly doubt it.

I don't think she would either.  Just wishful thinking.  I could definitely see Casper doing it though. Not because he had to, but because he's full of himself and would want to prove that he could beat a bunch of nobodies.
