No. 3 - Jordan Wiseley (Real World: Portland)
 
Rivals II Jordan lets us know he has a date with destiny.
 
Jordan was paired up with Marlon for his rookie season. They were the 3rd best team this season after CT/Wes and Frank/Johnny. Throughout the season, on a few occasions, other teams referred to them as “the rookies who are good at everything”.
 
Jordan/Marlon won one mission in the early stages of R2. Stumped, the solo mission that Jordan/Marlon won was based around intelligence and strategy. Jordan winning just the fourth mission into his Challenge career that involved wits against experienced opposition such as CT, Wes, and Johnny lets us know Jordan is someone to look out for.
 
Jordan/Marlon also become victorious in the last two male eliminations of the season against Leroy/Ty and Knight/Preston, to acquire a deserving position in the final challenge. They get third place in the finals due to Marlon holding them back because of his poor swimming and arriving to the elimination stage last.
 
Jordan bounces back from Sophomore Slump (Free Agents) with Exes II win.
 
Jordan’s second season, Free Agents, was an unmemorable experience. He performed poorly and didn’t live up to his expectations after having a phenomenal rookie season on Rivals II. Exes II is where we find out Jordan actually has enough bite to back up his humongous bark.
 
“The Wonder Twins” Jordan/Sarah won three missions (On Again Off Again, Wrecking Ball, Don’t Let Me Down) and thanks to T.J. letting us know who falls short of first every mission, we know that Jordan/Sarah got second place in three other missions (Open Arms, The Brush Off, and Are You The One?). They land in the top 2 for six out of ten missions.
 
Jordan/Sarah also won one of the final eliminations of the season. They beat Zach/Jonna where Jordan puts up his best single competitive performance yet (which I delve into further later in this assessment).
 
Jordan owned the Exes 2 final challenge. Jordan showed us he can do the following things: run forever without looking tired one bit, kayak (Leroy and Theresa struggled here), unscramble word puzzles, eat inhumane foods without looking bothered (Jay and Jenna quit because the eating phase was too much), and climb up mountains. Everyone besides Jordan showed signs of major fatigue or struggle in the final challenge, even his partner Sarah who kept holding back their pace multiple times. Jordan’s final challenge performance earned him his first championship.
 
Jordan’s political-social game is problematic, but he still somehow managed to win three times in six tries.
 
On Free Agents, had Jordan never volunteered himself into elimination against J.B., there’s a high chance he sees the final that season. Jordan was aligned with Zach, Reilly, and the most powerful female in the game, Laurel. He was in a comfortable position, but he couldn’t sit still. His ego took over because he wanted to prove a point to Bananas that he was better than him, and he failed miserably. However, this is only one of two times where his unideal political decision making has eliminated him from the game. In fact, Jordan’s unideal social-political game has gotten him to four of six finals and three career wins. Jordan’s social-political game and his winning success is best described as an anomaly.
 
On D30, although never explicitly mentioned, there was definitely some sort of pact between the top dog veterans in the house (Jordan, Bananas, CT, Derrick, and Leroy) early in the game. The only people who were being targeted the first few weeks were Cory, Hunter, and Nelson. Jordan had no business getting voted into the third elimination of D30, but his personality and actions rubbed people the wrong way. Early in the season, Jordan got into a rap battle with Jemmye and jokes about her having down syndrome. Just like you would expect, the house takes offense to this and sends him straight into the presidio. Luckily, Jordan’s competitive abilities allowed him to survive the elimination...and the rest of the season in which he eventually wins…
 
Jordan’s problematic political game becomes the center of attention again on Total Madness. If Bananas had greater mutual respect for Jordan, there’s no way Jordan would’ve got thrown to the wolves vs. Fessy in a game he didn’t stand a single chance in (Pole Wrestle). If Jordan wasn’t such an asshole to Wes in the bunker, then maybe, just maybe, Wes has enough human decency in him to spare him his livelihood. Jordan’s inability to handle house politics well with these two other time greats on Total Madness cost him any chance of ever winning that season.
 
Jordan’s All-Time Great Mental Strength.
 
Out of everyone in challenge history, is there anyone who’s more confident in their self-abilities than Jordan ever? The answer is no. Case and point: Jordan thought it would be a clever idea to take part in the draw and volunteer himself into an elimination against Johnny Bananas, who was a 4 time champ at the time of FA. When arriving to the elimination arena, the game was Wrecking Wall a.k.a. the only elimination Jordan was going to suffer a major disadvantage in due to having only one hand. Jordan could’ve had a change of heart, but nope, Jordan thought he actually could beat Bananas. Jordan continued on with his plan and flipped over all the cards and Bananas came out on top. At the time, we thought Jordan was delusional because it was just his second challenge and he had a quarter of the grand competitive resume he has built today. Here’s a hot take: If Bananas and Jordan were to replay that elimination game again, Jordan potentially wins. This time he doesn’t slip and climbs up the wall, no problems. The Jordan we know now has shown us that he’s capable of anything. Jordan is just that elite of a competitor. He’s 8-2 in eliminations for a reason.
 
Other times Jordan has volunteered into elimination, like the two times he volunteered to go in on War of the Worlds II, Jordan was mentally prepared and because of that, he prospered. There’s just something endearing about seeing Jordan be absolutely fearless of eliminations. Especially, because most other elite Challenge competitors do not share a similar mindset. Evan, for example, mentally breaks down when his name is called down into elimination. Evan has lost two eliminations because of weak mental preparedness (v. CT on the Duel, and v. CT/Adam in Rivals). Evan’s two elimination losses is concrete proof that having bad mental strength before and/or during an elimination can be the sole reason you lose it, whereas Jordan and his 8-2 record proves that having a indestructible mental strength and preparedness before the elimination gives you got a great shot at winning.
 
Three of Jordan’s eight elimination wins are because of his All-Time Great Speed and Quickness.
 
Jordan/Marlon eliminated Ty/Leroy in Last Chance. Last Chance was a physical team game where offensive players had to run towards the middle of a hall and ring the bell on the other side. Defensive players, positioned in the middle of hall, had to keep the opponents’ offensive player from reaching the bell on their side. Jordan/Marlon went into the elimination as underdogs considering Leroy/Ty had a collective size advantage, but Jordan’s speed/quickness helped them prevail. Here’s a play-by-play of that elimination: In the first round, offensive players Ty and Jordan crashed and met one another closer to Ty’s bell, but Jordan still got to his bell before Ty did. Jordan looked like he shot out of a rocket. He and Marlon got the first point. In the second round: Leroy captured Jordan and Ty got to the bell first. Leroy and Ty tied it up. In the third round: Marlon had Ty tied down to the floor right near the bell. All Leroy had to do was tackle Jordan to the floor to give Ty a fighting chance. Leroy tried to, but Jordan did a 360 spin move to get himself loose from Leroy and shot straight towards the bell scoring the second point to win the game for him and Marlon.
 
Jordan eliminated Swift in Looper (Free Agents). This actually ends up being one of the shortest eliminations ever, because Jordan’s quickness was too much for Swift to handle (what a paradox). Jordan ran around the two posts, reached and rang his bell in the matter of maybe 15 seconds. I’m not exaggerating here.
 
Jordan blew out Shane in Crazy 8 (Vendettas). Crazy 8 was a physical elimination game in which players had to race for a figure 8 shaped ring positioned in the center of the eliminator floor and bring it back to their side. It was a best of two-out-of-three wins. The game never turned physical. Why? Because, in both the first two rounds, Jordan got to the ring first. Then when he got possession of it, Shane couldn’t even put his hands on him. Jordan was too quick to even be touched.
 
Four of Jordan’s elimination wins are because he’s more smarter, more skilled, and more strategic than his opponents.
 
Jordan defeated Zach in Hammer It Home (Exes II), a game where teams had to use a sledge hammer to advance an eye beam from one end of a track to another, where a bell is located; first team to ring the bell with their beam won the elimination. Exes II Zach resembled Thor. Upon seeing this elimination, we all thought Zach was going to smoke Jordan, but we were wrong. It was evident that Challenge Thor had never ever done manual labor in his life. Jordan swung the hammer with perfect form. Zach’s form was sloppy and his hammer was slamming all over the place.
 
Jordan eliminated Josh in End of The Rope (WOTWII). I think we all have a fond memory of what happened in this one. It was an absolute clinic of strategy trumping size. In a game of tug of war, Jordan took out his bag of magic tricks and outsmarted the bigger Josh three out of three rounds to win. C.T., who was watching from the sidelines, went on to call it the most impressive elimination performance he’s ever seen in his fifteen plus years of doing the Challenge. I don’t disagree with him.
 
Jordan eliminated Theo in Under The Hammer (WOTWII). Jordan found himself in another sledgehammer elimination again. Theo didn’t resemble Thor, but Theo was 4-0 in eliminations up until this point and arguably Team U.K.’s best competitor, so Jordan had his work cut out for him. The goal of the Under The Hammer was to hammer 12 nails through concrete and smash the lightbulbs underneath; first player to smash all 12 lightbulbs won the elimination. When the elimination went underway, Theo got off to an early lead. He uses just his arms/shortens his swing, which seemed to work in the beginning, but his energy began to fade. Jordan’s technique of leveraging his entire arm and body for greater torque ended up becoming the winning strategy.
 
Jordan defeated Ammo in Striptease (D30), a blindfolded contest where players had to rip patches off their opponent to win. This elimination was a complete crapshoot and Jordan still somehow incorporated a brilliant strategy to win. Jordan played the better offense between him and Ammo by getting in back of him and wrestling him to the ground to grab patches off his uniform. On defense, Jordan did all types of crazy flips and rollovers. This defensive approach worked perfectly as Ammo struggled to locate Jordan’s body parts to yank patches off of him. Jordan demonstrated that he’s always strategically thinking, and used his wrestling background to elevate his chances of winning in a blindfold contest.
 
Jordan is hands down the second greatest swimmer in Challenge history, after Wes.
 
Jordan has a long history of ATG swimming mission performances (Swingers, On Again Off Again, Open Arms, Cryptic Crossbow, Hooked, and Puzzling Swim).
 
On Again Off Again and Open Arms were essentially the same type of mission. Both Exes II missions started off with being on a moving platform that’s on a zip line above water and pairs had to jump off the moving platform once it got to the bottom, and they had to swim around a buoy and back to shore, and then, finally ring a bell to stop their time; Fastest time won. Jordan came in first for On Again, Off Again beating the fastest male and female swimmers Wes/Theresa and came in 2nd place to Wes/Theresa on Open Arms, by just one second. Jordan’s swimming was on par with Wes, who is essentially Aquaman of the Challenge.
 
Jordan Wiseley’s Flu game.
 
Jordan’s opponents in the Dirty 30 finale were CT and Derrick. On paper, this is easily the most competitive individual male final ever (with Duel II coming in second). However, competitive was far from what occurred. It was nowhere near close. Jordan haters may argue CT and Derrick were out of their prime, and it’s for that reason they couldn’t keep up with Jordan’s rapid pace. While that is indeed true, Inferno 2 CT and Gauntlet 2 Derrick could’ve time travelled to the future and replaced themselves at the Dirty 30 finale, Jordan still would’ve came out ahead. Jordan’s a gazelle; Derrick and CT, even in their best days have never displayed long distance stamina equal to his.
 
What makes Jordan’s Dirty Thirty final performance even more phenomenal was the skydiving incident. Jordan crash landed at the beginning of the final, because his skydiving instructor was inept at his job and didn’t start up the parachute on time. As a result, the instructor broke his leg and Jordan almost did too. Jordan actually himself has said he suffered a leg fracture from it. Yet, he still went on to compete in the final and win. I do find it hard to believe that he did have a leg fracture (especially when you take into consideration the way he was running in the final). At the very least, he must’ve had cuts and bruises seeing how gruesome the landing was. Either way, Jordan gets a lot of credit here for putting on such a dominant performance after almost losing a whole leg or potentially his life.
 
Jordan’s Dirty Thirty finals performance, in my opinion, is the closest thing to Michael Jordan’s flu game in Challenge terms. Dirty Thirty is the longest, most drawn out, strenuous season there’s ever been with one of the more competitive male casts in challenge history; Jordan being crowned the winner of D30 while having a potential leg fracture in the finals further proves my statement earlier that Jordan’s mental strength is made of steel.
 
Jordan’s Legacy will continue to grow.
 
Jordan is an exception to the underlying theme in this list: all the all-time greats I mentioned are either retired (Alton, Mark, Theo, etc.) or on their last leg (Bananas and C.T.). Their legacies are completed. Jordan’s is still growing. Jordan, unlike Bananas and C.T., is in his absolute prime. He can still go for another 10 seasons and elevate his legacy even more than what it is today (and potentially climb up the list and solidify himself as the Challenge G.O.A.T.).
 
Jordan is one of the only three triple crown champions (team, pair, and individual win) in challenge history, along with Bananas and C.T. The triple crown title is the most cardinal achievement one can attain in the Challenges as it displays a competitors ability to work well within a team, communicate well as a partner, and be capable enough to win alone. It took C.T. 16 seasons to achieve the triple crown, it took Bananas 10 seasons, and Jordan did it in 5. Jordan is light years ahead.
 
Jordan is the richest male contestant ever. He’s won $833,000 in prize money. That’s 200k more than Johnny and 300k more than C.T., and he’s competed in one-fourth of the seasons that Bananas has done (5 in comparison to 20), and one-third of the challenges C.T. has done (16).
 
Jordan’s Overall Assessment.
 
Before WOTWII, I had Jordan as my fifth best all-time (behind Bananas, C.T., Evan, and Landon). His apex performance on WOTWII moved him up two spots into my Challenge Mount Rushmore. Jordan’s political/social game comes with it’s malfunctions, and at times it’s resulted in two dud performances (FA/TM), but it also doesn’t seem to stop him from winning. Jordan’s WOTWII was a horrible political showing, but he defied all odds against him by putting on elite competitive performances. In just a six season career, Jordan has won three Challenge championships in the most toughest era to ever win.
 
Competitively speaking, Jordan has ATG mental strength, strategy, swimming, long distance running, and speed/quickness. His only true weakness is hand-to-hand combat. I don’t think Jordan has racked up too many memorable mission performances in comparison to Bananas, C.T., and Landon, but he easily has the most impressive elimination performances out of the four. In a modern day final challenge, you can’t go wrong with either him or Landon as the best finals runner of that Mount Rushmore group.
 
The battle between Jordan and C.T. for No. 3 was close. But determining who was better at every component possible was my logic and reasoning for taking Jordan over C.T. C.T. was the better overall competitor in his prime, has better mission performances and a far stronger political/social game. Jordan has greater elimination performances, is the better finals runner, has a far greater winning percentage (and finals percentage), and his championships were more valuable (C.T.’s Rivals II > Jordan’s Exes II, Jordan’s Dirty Thirty > C.T.’s Invasions, and Jordan’s WOTWII > C.T.’s WOTWII).

2020.06.04 17:08 ChildfreeFamily Help fact-checking a list of well known Childfree people

I'm compiling a list of childfree people for a blog. I have found a few lists online (which have been helpful). But in some cases they were not up-to-date. A person may have had children since being added to their list (example: I had to remove George Clooney who appeared on a number of lists). Or there might be some people missing who should be on the list.
If you have a moment to scan the list and let me know of any other errors or omissions it would be appreciated.
It has been fun working on this list. A few people on it surprised me. Thanks again for any help.
\Edit for clarification: the term "childfree", in the sense of this list, will be in regards to people who never had a child from a live birth, fostered a child, adopted a child, or was a step-parent.*

2020.02.17 03:58 ND_PC The r/MtvChallenge Fantasy Tournament: Redemption House - Day 21 (Round Five)

Welcome to the fifth round of the redemption house. Blink, and you’ll miss it! The fifth round is TODAY only! The winners of this round will face the losers of the semifinals of the main bracket. Intense! At this point, we’ve got a 4-1 team and seven 3-1 teams remaining in the loser’s bracket, while all teams in the main bracket enter the day at 3-0. Basically, that means the redemption house has more experienced players, and even a few teams that have won more matches than anybody in the main bracket. So... is this really the winner’s bracket? No! Don’t kid yourself! You were knocked out of the tournament, ya loser!
But worry not, for this is a safe and positive atmosphere! Join us as the loser battle heats up with even more head-to-head fights for redemption. Together, we’ll find out which team can overcome embarrassing losses, terrifying finals, and (supposed) voter insanity. While nobody will re-enter the Winner’s Bracket, you may just find yourself the Ruler of Redemption.
Before we get to the voting, let’s recap Friday’s fantasy match-ups.
Real World Bracket
Finally, Chet is gone! We can dance like the ewoks celebrating on the forest moon of endor! Look, I like Theresa and Momma Day as much as anyone else, but Mr. Perfect Face practically ruins this team for me - no offense u/harsh-femme. And who better to eliminate him than Nehemiah? (Answer: literally any other player, this is so anticlimactic).
Sadly, we’ll have to say goodbye to the pride of Marquette and the mother of Easton, Miss Theresa Gonzalez. If this was like the videogame NBA Street v3, the victorious team could trade any player they wanted to the loser in exchange for anyone on that team, and u/dolfan2354 would exchange Amanda for Theresa. It’d be an upgrade in almost any stat category you can think of.
But this isn’t NBA Street v3, this is the MtvChallenge fantasy tournament, so u/dolfan2354 is stuck with the team they have. It’s worked out for them so far! Seriously, this final had a little bit of everything - Thai bead stringing, coconut water, eating, puzzles, swimming, paddleboarding, climbing, running… everything. At some point, it becomes about who gets exhausted last, and who has the mental strength to complete the final. This might be a biting take, but Da’Vonne would probably get irritated the easiest of these eight competitors and check out mentally on the first or second night. I could also see Chet doing this. Meanwhile, Derrick K, Nehemiah, Veronica and Amanda would have no quitters, and would fight through the exhaustion to claim the victory.
So congratulations, u/dolfan2354! You’ll move onto the next round which is, uh, right now! And to u/harsh-femme, thanks for competing in the tournament, and we hope you had fun.
Road Rules Bracket
Welp, Team Likability’s unlikely run to the fourth round of the loser’s bracket has come to an end. I was rooting so hard for Kyle (who probably has the best sense of humor on the modern show), Josh (who wears his heart on his sleeve better than anybody), Sarah (who is an innocent crossword-loving funster), and Nany (who was the show’s sweetheart for so many years and we don’t need to talk about her paranoia on War of the Worlds 2), but they met their fate today. That’s right, Amanda Garcia has won two finals on one day. Buoyed by CT, probably, and Mattie being stronger than Nany in the minds of many fans (oh gosh, now I want to see this), Satan’s Asshole comes out on top once again.
The Fresh Meat II final featured canoeing, tangrams, sudoku, mountain biking, weight carrying, more sudoku, and mountain climbing. While in my mind these activities all live in the wheelhouse of the untouchable goddess Sarah Rice, I’m sure what tipped the scales was the 80lb bag carry that had to be done in pairs. CT and Dan are both more than capable of carrying 80 lbs that distance on their own, while Josh may not be and Nany probably also wouldn’t be. Especially after a weight-based puzzle, it would be hard to bank on Sarah and Kyle to do the heavy lifting and out-move CT, Dan, Mattie, and beneficiary Amanda.
Aside from the weight carry, I actually think it’d be pretty even. No wonder the score only differed by six votes here. I think Team Likability is probably the superior puzzle team, but Amanda is a very smart player and Dan and CT can hold their own on puzzles. Satan’s Asshole has a big brain after all, and as was destined, they eliminate Team Likability from the tournament. Nice guys really do finish last.
Congratulations to u/hkotila! You’re competing again today! And, to u/trebird1, this ends your time here on the MtvChallenge fantasy tournament. Take care of yourself.
Now, let’s get to voting. Today is the last double day of the tournament! You know the drill - this means we have two matchups from each bracket!
Real World Bracket
Match 1.0: u/BCastle18 vs. u/honestkodaline, u/priorsloth’s “Adore Delano 2020”
Final: The Inferno II
Teams
[u/BCastle18]
[u/honestkodaline, u/priorsloth] “Adore Delano 2020”
Winner’s Logic
[u/BCastle18]
  1. Landon in the night elimination against Luke and Ev literally dragged a almost unconscious Carley to a win and in the finals carried Carley up a mountain to get the win over 3 teams that on paper seemed stronger one of which included two top 10 challengers of all time in Kenny and Laurel with the weakest partner. Also did all of this while being respectful and supportive of his partner throughout showing he is very much a great team player.
  2. Only one team was in the main house all season on FR, it was Sylvia and Joss. They won the final endurance purge and won it rather comfortably. Showed that she can keep her composure in their elimination against John/Tony and many even believe that Sylvia and Joss were the rightful winners of FR, they also only lost by 40 seconds even while getting hit with two grenades.
[u/honestkodaline, u/priorsloth] “Adore Delano 2020”
  1. Other than strong competitors our teams biggest strength is that there is a clear alpha leader (Ev), and the other three are team players that will follow a strong competitor.
  2. EVELYN SMITH WON A SIMILAR FINAL, on Rivals 1! Not only did she win this final, but she did it with Paula. They beat Laurel and Cara Maria who would easily win anything you threw at them today. We know this wasn’t because Paula is a powerhouse, it was literally ALL on Ev. I don’t need to say much more because Ev is iconic, she won 3 seasons, and any true Challenge fan knows her résumé. Game, set, match bitch.
  3. Cohutta may not have a win yet, and he may be on the smaller side of the men, but he is brilliant. He makes the challenges work for him. During this season, Free Agents, he showed incredible agility being one of three people to make it across the rolling log during the first challenge. In the second daily he was partnered with Laurel, and of course they won, but neither could’ve done it without the other. On the third challenge he lead a team of Nany, Latoya and Preston across the bar crawl (sliding two bars under a wall suspended above water) when teams that had Jordan, CT, and Cara couldn’t even make it across! Free Agents was Cohutta’s best run and he finished in 6th place. This season showed us that Cohutta can work on a team with ANYONE and perform above average.
  4. Ashley Kelsey kickboxes. She solves puzzles. She stands up for Sam (well, halfheartedly, but she did at one point stand up for Sam, at least once, in her own way). She dated Dario, and we don't judge her for that. She won her first season. She lost her second season to Cara, but didn't she look cute while doing it?
  5. Ace Amerson invented the trash can punch. He hooked up with Tonya. He was on Team Good Guys on Inferno 3, because he is a good guy. In real life, he rides a lot of 4-wheelers and has a cute dog. He'll listen to Evelyn's orders. He'll be a supportive teammate and friend to all, except Derrick.
  6. Our team is a lean, mean machine - heavy on the lean. We run. We think critically (well, Evelyn does). We fight (well, Evelyn does). We get shit done... well, you get the point.
The Inferno II Final Description - thank you to the lovely u/stayoutofthe-forest for the details.
Match 2.0: u/ry-guy2fly’s “Team Backpack” vs. u/dolfan2354
Final: Cutthroat
Teams
[u/ry-guy2fly] “Team Backpack”
[u/dolfan2354]
Winner’s Logic
[u/ry-guy2fly] “Team Backpack”
  1. CT doesn’t need an introduction, but I’ll give my team captain one anyway. CT, who fashioned the iconic Banana Backpack, is the greatest competitor of all time. For my team, I plucked him from his greatest season of all time. If you name a skill that can be tested on this show, CT excels in that skill. Endurance, strength, skill, puzzles, eating, and everything in between. CT dominates.
  2. Aviv Melmod is the biggest reason Darrell is considered one of the best competitors in challenge history. Aviv is a puzzle queen with endurance to match it. Her puzzle skill and fire was the biggest factor in separating her and Darrell from their finals opponents on Fresh Meat. She’s a combination of Diem and Evelyn. Heart, passion, smarts, and fire. While she only competed in one season, she showed a plethora of Challenge knowhow. If she would have returned to the show, she’d be recognized as one of the all time greats.
  3. Brittini Sherrod is another one hit wonder like Aviv. Although she didn’t quite reach the heights of her female partner, she showed that she doesn’t have a real weakness. She never gives up and maintained a close race against Rachel on Duel 2. Brittini will never flounder under pressure and will continue to push through any and all obstacles.
  4. Mike Boise only competed on one season, but it was quick to see the relation between him and his brother Abram. Mike has GUTS! While he hated the house environment, Mike showed excellent know how. He’s an in shape guy who attacks any obstacle tactfully. Mike and CT are a great fit together, because no matter how hard CT pushes, Mike will respond. His all around knowledge and skill will prove useful in a final.
[u/dolfan2354]
  1. Derrick K- Arguably one of the best players in eliminations due to his tenacity. Always will compete has a never-say-quit attitude as evidenced multiple times. Is a multi time champion and has the cardio to crush any final. Is aware of shortcomings and is willing to sit back in puzzles and let those strong on his team due their thing. Is ready to crush any final!
  2. Veronica - Forgotten how dominant she was in her prime is a 3x champion who got better every season she was on. Won 4 life savers on the inferno. Has no glaring weakness is a strong female who is smart at puzzles and has the cardio to keep up with her team while also being able to mentally break her opponents!
  3. Amanda - Is a very loyal player and will compete as hard as she can in anything she does while also making sure her voice is heard. Arguably the best player in the lavender ladies. In invasion she showed how dominant she is at puzzles by solving her puzzle in minutes during the blood bath while other players were at it for an hour. Has the strength to pull her weight on any challenge. Has shown she is in great shape and has never shown signs that she would struggle with a final.
  4. Nehemiah - Is an all around player and is a 1x champion. Came into rivals shredded and in the best shape he has ever been in. Was carrying his team with an overweight Evan and proved that he is capable of running a final and competing to win. Has the body size to provide the muscle and really crush anything while also having a good mind when it comes to the tough aspect of using your brain.
Cutthroat Final Description
(Thank you to u/honestkodaline for this description!)
Road Rules Bracket
Match: u/scyth13r vs. u/phillyfly11’s “CJ’s Angels”
Final: Battle of the Bloodlines
Teams
[u/scyth13r]
[u/phillyfly11] “CJ’s Angels”
Winner’s Logic
[u/scyth13r]
  1. Frank Roessler Gauntlet III - The leader and backbone of his team. A smart physical competitor, the Veterans constantly targeted Frank. He prevailed in eliminations and his team took home a controversial W in the final.
  2. Luke Wolfe Cutthroat - Finishing ahead of the almighty Landon in elimination wasn't enough losing due to a puzzle in FM2, Luke carried his weight, and Abrams, and Sarah's, and Cara Maria's in the final of Cutthroat. Had the almighty Abe and Sarah been medically DQ'd sooner he would have won the final.
  3. Sylvia Elsrode Final Reckoning - Boasting a questionable 2nd place finish in a final, she did the thinking, the planning, and the puzzles for her team. She also tied Joss' shoes for him.
  4. Evelyn Smith Rivals - It’s Evelyn fucking Smith.
[u/phillyfly11] “CJ’s Angels”
  1. Emily Schromm, Rivals 2: In the wise words of the Godfather Mark Long, “She competes like a dude.” The most physically fit female competitor ,Emily dominated Rivals 2 with 6 daily wins en route to winning the season.
  2. Ashley Kelsey, Invasions: I chose this version of Ashley because she was in better physical shape and has running and winning a final experience and a great team player.
  3. CJ Koegel, Battle of the Seasons 2: Was the Leader of Team Cancun that won 2 dailies and was a part of the major alliance. He proved his ability to think on his feet and his physical strength by defeating Roided up Zach in his HALL BRAWL heat.
  4. Mike Boise, Bloodlines: One of the top performers the entire season, he proved that he wasn’t afraid of any task, asking multiple times to get thrown into elimination and that he has a killer mindset during competition."
Battle of the Bloodlines Final Description
Thanks to u/harsh-femme for this extraordinarily thorough rundown!
Match 2.0: u/dirtykilla36 vs. u/hkotila’s “Satan’s Asshole”
Final: The Gauntlet 2
Teams
[u/dirtykilla36]
[u/hkotila] “Satan’s Asshole”
Winner’s Logic
[u/dirtykilla36]
  1. First of all, my team Is comprised of all previous winners, so they’ve been there before and nerves won’t be an issue.
  2. Wes and Melinda were on the real world together and have a decent relationship that would Work to their advantage.
  3. My team has shown excellent mental and intestinal fortitude, so the eating portion wouldn’t serve as any type of problem.
  4. My team also consistently displays toughness, and mental superiority, so the final portion of walking on hot coals shouldn’t be any hindrance in winning the $$.
[u/hkotila] “Satan’s Asshole”
  1. CT: CHOO CHOO
  2. Dan: One of the top two performing males on this season which included Mark Long, Abe, The Miz, Derrick, and Brad... Also: https://medium.com/@shmalvey7/the-greatest-male-players-in-challenge-history-17-dan-setzler-75b8100f98a1
  3. Amanda: Solid at most aspects of the game, IMO probably the second-best puzzle solver to appear on the challenge.
  4. Mattie: Top 3 most physically imposing females to be cast behind Laurel and Late career Emily. A lot of shit has been talked on here about her stamina. Just remember, wherever you have Mattie ranked on endurance Georgia needs to be behind her. Plus she ran like 16-20 miles on a sand dune and was keeping pace with Cara during that time. Most finals don't even have a course even close to as brutal as that final meaning she will do fine on every other final
The Gauntlet II Final Description - Thanks to my post partner u/MandyMTV for writing this. Let’s have a moment of silence for our partnership, as it has now become a one-man operation because she mysteriously disappeared. (Side note, I heard from her on Saturday and she is alive and well.)
Which of these teams deserves to move on in our quest to discover The Challenge Fantasy Draft’s Biggest Loser? You decide.
VOTE HERE!
Voting ends at 10 PM EST Monday, February 17.

2019.12.04 05:33 valkyria_knight881 A Look Into Paramount Pictures 2020: The Turnaround Year?

In this post, I will focus on Paramount Pictures, the studio that couldn’t catch a break for the majority of this decade. Besides that, the studio is well known for Star Trek, Indiana Jones, Forrest Gump, Titanic, Transformers, and Iron Man. Most recently, Paramount has been well known for Mission: Impossible - Fallout, Bumblebee, Rocketman, Dora and the Lost City of Gold, and the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog film.

The Current Era of Paramount Pictures

In my previous analysis on Paramount Pictures (https://old.reddit.com/boxoffice/comments/9zim0n/other_a_look_into_paramount_pictures_history_2019/), I had different eras that Paramount went through. For most of this decade, Paramount has been in the Decline Era and have been since 2012, Paramount’s 100th Anniversary. By 2014, Paramount lost the distribution rights to Indiana Jones, the Dreamworks Animation films and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the latter two being significant to Paramount in the late 2000s and early 2010s up until Paramount’s 100th Anniversary. From 2013 to 2018, Paramount was rotating between Star Trek, Transformers, and Mission: Impossible. Transformers: Age of Extinction ($1.1B) was Paramount’s only billion dollar film and was the highest grossing film of 2014. Paramount was always in last place behind the other major film studios, and they weren’t financially stable. Before we get into how well Paramount is doing this year, let’s see how well they were doing the previous year.

2018

Annihilation - The year started with The Cloverfield Paradox being thrown off to Netflix. And that’s probably a good thing because people said the movie was awful, especially compared to the previous Cloverfield films. In terms of theatrically, the year really started with Annihilation, which was released later in February. Annihilation was only released in theaters in the US, Canada, and China, while every other country got the film on Netflix. Assuming Netflix paid for half of the film, Annihilation made $43M on a budget of $20M ($40M-$55M is the original budget), which is okay, but not great, as Paramount was expecting.
Sherlock Gnomes - Disney dumped their scraps on Paramount, and Paramount managed to find Sherlock Gnomes in Disney’s scraps. Even though Gnomeo & Juliet was a success for Disney’s Touchstone, Disney didn’t think they needed that sequel, and Disney made a good call. Sherlock Gnomes made $90M on a budget of $59M, failing to hit the break-even point.
A Quiet Place - April saw the release of A Quiet Place, which made $341M on a budget of $21M. This finally gave Paramount a hit, something they didn’t really have since Daddy’s Home 2.
Book Club - May saw the release of Book Club, which made $104M on a budget of $14M. With those two succeeding, it seemed like Paramount is starting to turn things around. Then Action Point happened.
Action Point - The film was meant to be similar to Johnny Knoxville’s Jackass films, but this one wasn’t as well received as the Jackass films. The film only made $5M on a budget of $19M. It didn’t seem like Paramount cared too much about Action Point with a lack of marketing. But they did care about their next film after Action Point.
Mission: Impossible - Fallout - Mission: Impossible - Fallout was Paramount’s biggest film of the year, and boy did it deliver. The film made $791M worldwide, becoming the highest grossing film in the Mission: Impossible franchise.
Nobody’s Fool - This was made by Paramount Players, a division created by Paramount to work with other Viacom brands like Comedy Central, BET, MTV, and Nickelodeon. As the first film from Paramount Players, it didn’t do that great, but it didn’t flat out bomb. The film made $34M on a budget of $19M, failing to break-even.
Overlord - This would be the last Bad Robot production for Paramount, and it ended on a whimper. The film made $42M on a budget of $38M, barely making more than its budget, failing to profit.
Instant Family - The film made $67M domestically and $121M worldwide on a budget of $48M.
Bumblebee - Paramount attempted to redeem the Transformers franchise with this film after they milked the franchise completely dry with Transformers: The Last Knight, and I think they pulled it off. In terms of financially, it made $127M domestically and $468M worldwide on a budget of $135M. While this would be the lowest grossing Transformers film, it would be profitable for Paramount, compared to the Last Knight, which despite making more than Bumblebee, made Paramount lose $100M. Bumblebee also had to go against Aquaman. I honestly think Paramount should’ve switched the release dates for Instant Family and Bumblebee so Bumblebee went against Fantastic Beasts 2 instead. Instant Family would’ve probably made at least $80M domestically in the December holidays while Bumblebee would’ve probably made at least $140M domestically during the Thanksgiving holiday.
Overall - This year was so much better for Paramount than 2017, but only okay compared to the other film studios. The losses in some films weren’t too bad and the only film that really failed to make its budget back was Action Point, which only cost $19M. Mission: Impossible - Fallout delivered on all fronts, and is Paramount’s only stable franchise. I felt like Paramount missed some opportunities to have better release dates for some of its movies like Overlord being better off with a pre-Halloween release than a November release. Viacom’s Bob Bakish believed that 2019 would be Paramount’s turnaround year. Is what he said back in early 2018 true or is Paramount still the same old loser from the past 6 years?
Biggest Wins: A Quiet Place, Bumblebee, Mission: Impossible - Fallout
Biggest Loses: Sherlock Gnomes, Action Point, Overlord

2019

When I did my analysis on the upcoming Paramount Pictures films last year, there were originally 12 films slated for 2019. Only 7 of those 12 films released that year with Crawl and Playing With Fire sneaking into the 2019 Paramount slate at the last minute. Eli was given to Netflix after Paramount couldn’t figure out how to market the film, and Eli was given a release of October 18, 2019. Are You Afraid of the Dark? has been removed from Paramount’s schedule and became a mini-series on Nickelodeon. Limited Partners (later became Like a Boss), The Rhythm Section, and Sonic the Hedgehog were pushed to 2020 (with the latter having a really good reason to do so). Unlike the other major film studios, Paramount has released all of their films in the 2019 slate as of this post. I actually chose to look into Paramount Pictures later than the other film studios just to see how well Playing With Fire is doing (with the exception of Sony Pictures). That way, I can completely know for sure how the whole year went for Paramount.
What Men Want - Compared to Paramount Players’ first film (Nobody’s Fool), this was a success, making $72M on a budget of $20M. Even though it's a far cry from Mel Gibson’s What Women Want (made $374M), What Men Want’s performance is good enough for Paramount. Unlike Paramount’s next film after What Men Want.
Wonder Park - Like Jimmy Neutron and Barnyard, this was meant to kick start another television series for Nickelodeon by starting with a film. Unlike those two, the film was a box office bomb, making only $120M on a budget of $100M and the television series nowhere to be seen despite debuting in 2019 (with the Netflix/Nickelodeon partnership, I have a feeling that the show will be on Netflix). Paramount shouldn’t have thrown $100M at this project. It’s just way too high for something like this. Illumination films are made for less, yet make so much more. Lowering the budget to even $60M would’ve been enough for the film to break even.
Pet Sematary - Coming off the Stephen King craze, Pet Sematary was a financial success (though not as much of a success as It was), making $112M worldwide on a budget of $21M, almost twice as much as the original 1989 version (made $58M worldwide).
Rocketman - Coming off the recently booming music biopic craze, Rocketman was a financial success (though not as much of a success as Bohemian Rhapsody was), making $195M on a budget of $40M.
Crawl - Despite not being screened to critics early, the film surprisingly got positive reviews and was a commercial success, making $91M on a budget of $14M. Some say it could’ve made more if the film was marketed better with a better shot at $100M worldwide. But what Crawl made was enough to make Paramount happy.
Dora and the Lost City of Gold - One of Paramount’s weirder ideas that actually works, the film made $119M on a budget of $49M. While it is slightly less than Nickelodeon’s Wonder Park ($120M), it’s lower budget was able to make Dora a success while Wonder Park is considered a disaster. And hey, Wonder Park isn’t going to be the only disaster Paramount has this year. There’s supposedly two more.
Gemini Man - Paramount was advertising this film as the action film of the future with a higher frame rate than usual action films. People saw the film and realized that it’s just a dumb gimmick that hurts the film, especially in non-action scenes. The film made $173M on a budget of $138M, becoming a box office bomb and losing the studio as much as $75M. I think there’s a good reason why the film was stuck in development hell for 20 years and its financial performance proves it. And this isn’t even Paramount’s biggest disaster of the year.
Terminator: Dark Fate - Terminator Dark Fate’s performance proves that the franchise has literally met a dark fate as well. I honestly thought that James Cameron returning as producer would help the film be profitable and make as high as $500M worldwide. What made me reconsider was when the budget was revealed and marketing started kicking in. I admit that I enjoyed it as a fun popcorn flick, but I wouldn’t consider it as the definitive sequel to Terminator 2. In fact, Terminator 1 and 2 are good enough as they are. Dark Fate made $250M on a budget of $196M, becoming a box office bomb. Unlike Gemini Man where Paramount lost $75M on its own, at least Paramount spread the pain over to 20th Century Fox as they distributed the film internationally while Paramount distributed the film in the US. The studios lost as much as $130M, which is about $65M each for Paramount and 20th Century Fox.
Playing With Fire - It’s a really good thing that Paramount had a secret weapon when Terminator: Dark Fate was doing terribly. It was originally Sonic the Hedgehog, but the design was so awful that Paramount pushed it back, and everyone liked that. What’s a better way to end off the decade for Paramount than to release Nickelodeon’s Playing With Fire? Based on the trailers and after seeing the film myself, the film tried to be like Instant Family, but a little more family friendly (like less swearing) and having a bunch of firefighters taking care of the kids instead. Instant Family also received the same treatment of being moved forward to November. What a coincidence. The film has so far made $43M on a budget of $30M, which isn’t good as it hasn’t broken even, and most likely won’t. What a nice way to end the year.
Overall - This year’s lineup was just mediocre and worse than 2018. With the exception of Terminator: Dark Fate, none of Paramount’s films were at the top spot. None of Paramount’s films also made over $100M domestic this year, though Rocketman came close with $96M. Paramount just wasn’t being the major film studio it was supposed to be, and it was good at that. Always taking second to whatever big movie was near it. The films with a budget of $50M and less did fine, but the big budget films that bombed really hurt Paramount’s chances of having a decent year. Paramount had the inability of releasing successful big budget films this year. If it weren’t for Wonder Park, Gemini Man, and Terminator: Dark Fate, the lineup would’ve been okay with a lack of major films for the year. Those three brought the lineup down. 2019 was just not the turnaround year that Paramount needed. But being my optimistic self, I believe there may be hope for Paramount coming very soon.
Biggest Wins: What Men Want, Pet Sematary, Rocketman, Crawl, Dora and the Lost City of Gold
Biggest Losses: Wonder Park, Gemini Man, Terminator: Dark Fate

2020

The next year is coming, and it’s time to look at what Paramount has in-store for everyone next year. I’ll try to keep it short (with a basic description of each one if necessary and how well it might do). The numbers I have won’t be accurate, so take it with a grain of salt.

Like a Boss

It’s a comedy film directed by Miguel Arteta and was originally supposed to come out on June 28, 2019. Based on the trailer, this comedy has a very specific target demographic. With Tiffany Haddish as the lead role, I’d compare how well this movie will do to Nobody’s Fool, which made $34M. I see this film making slightly more even with its limited appeal, making $40M domestically and $70M worldwide. I don’t think Paramount expected this to do amazing, especially with the film being pushed back by seven months.

The Rhythm Section

It’s an action thriller film directed by Reed Marano. This seems like an average revenge flick that should be a modest success for Paramount at best, but not a breakout hit, especially since this film has a January release. What makes this more concerning is that the film was pushed back almost a whole year as its original release date was February 22, 2019. I’d say this makes $60M domestically and $140M worldwide.

Sonic the Hedgehog

It’s an adventure comedy film based on the video game character of the same name. With the redesign making people interested and even anticipating the film, I could see this doing well and be the blockbuster Paramount needs after Gemini Man and Terminator: Dark Fate bombed. I’d say this makes $150M domestically (highest grossing video game movie in the US) and $400M worldwide with a shot at $500M worldwide.

A Quiet Place: Part II

It’s a horror film directed by John Krasinski and is the sequel to A Quiet Place. With A Quiet Place being a major success, I see a slight increase happening for the second film. I’d say this makes $200M domestically and $360M worldwide.

The Lovebirds

It’s a romantic comedy film directed by Michael Showalter. The film is about a couple on the verge of breaking up being involved in a murder that they weren’t involved in. Like many comedies in recent years, I don’t see this doing gangbusters, but it should do slightly better than Paramount’s Like A Boss due to most likely having more of an audience. I’d say this makes $50M domestically and $80M worldwide.

Monster Problems

It’s a post-apocalyptic comedy film directed by Michael Matthews. The film is about a young man fighting monsters to meet the girl he loves. The post-apocalyptic comedy part of this film is giving me Zombieland vibes and should probably do about as well as Zombieland or its sequel. I’d say it makes $60M domestically and $100M worldwide.

The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run

It’s an adventure comedy film and is the third Spongebob film, meaning that Spongebob finally has a trilogy after 16 years. With the success of 2015’s Sponge Out of Water, I think Sponge on the Run should have a slight increase over the second one, though the film’s premise seems like a mix of the first Spongebob Squarepants Movie in 2004 and a Spongebob episode where Gary is missing. I’d say this film makes $180M DOM and $350M WW. If Scoob wasn’t releasing just a week apart from this film, I think Sponge on the Run would’ve had a shot at $200M domestically or $400M worldwide.

Top Gun: Maverick

It’s an action drama film directed by Joseph Kosinski and is the sequel to 1986’s Top Gun. I could see this film being Paramount’s biggest film of the year, similar to Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible - Fallout back in 2018. I can see Top Gun: Maverick recreate a similar success that Fallout did (Fallout made $220M DOM and $791M WW). I’d say this makes $210M domestically and $800M worldwide.

Infinite

It’s a sci-fi film directed by Antoine Fuqua. The film is about a man who learns that his visions are memories of his past lives. This sounds like a decent and original concept. I could see this starting a new franchise for Paramount if the world is set up well and if the film is good. I’d say this makes $110M domestically and $300M worldwide.

Spell

It’s a horror thriller film about a man who crashes his plane in the middle of nowhere and is discovered by an elderly couple, who may have sinister ideas in mind. This sounds like a horror film that could break out in late August and early September, like 2016’s Don’t Breathe. I’d say this makes $100M domestically and $180M worldwide.

Without Remorse

It’s an action film directed by Stefano Sollima and is based on the Tom Clancy novel of the same name. It’s about a CIA operative that seeks revenge on a drug lord when his girlfriend gets killed. This film should do slightly better than Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, but this shouldn’t be bad as long as the budget is low (like $50M). I’d say this makes $60M domestically and $150M worldwide.

The Trial of the Chicago 7

It’s a crime drama film directed by Aaron Sorkin. This should be a modest success, but nothing fantastic. Based on Sorkin’s previous film, Molly’s Game, I’d say this makes $60M domestically and $100M worldwide.

Snake Eyes

It’s an action film directed by Robert Schwentke and is the third installment in the G.I.:Joe franchise. This is said to be the origin story of Snake Eyes. It seems like Paramount is taking the Bumblebee route with this franchise by starting at the very beginning with one specific character. Though the director has a spotty track record, I think this should do decently, similar to Bumblebee (if done right). I’d say this makes $110M domestically and $310M worldwide.

Clifford the Big Red Dog

It’s a family comedy film directed by Walt Becker and is based on the book series of the same name. I don’t get why Paramount is making this film, kind of like how people were baffled at the announcement of a Dora the Explorer film (that actually turned out decently). The performance of this would probably be similar to Dora and the Lost City of Gold, but I have a feeling that this film will keep its tone from the books and the show, while Dora changed its style from its transition from tv show to movie. Based on how well Dora and the Lost City of Gold did, I’d say this makes $50M domestically and $100M worldwide. If Dora and the Lost City of Gold didn’t get too much attention, I don’t think Clifford will fare any better.

Coming 2 America

It’s a romantic comedy film directed by Craig Brewer and will be the sequel to Coming to America (it’s going to be so confusing when people say the name. You’re better off saying Coming to America 2). I think this will be successful, especially if the film is a decent follow-up from its predecessor and with it taking advantage of the holiday spot. I’d say this makes $140M domestically and $300M worldwide.

The Tomorrow War

It’s a military sci-fi action war film directed by Chris McKay. With the exception of Mission: Impossible, big budget Skydance films don’t really do amazing, though this could be traced back to a poor quality film. If the film turns out to be good and assuming it’s budget is about as much as Skydance’s Gemini Man, I’d say this makes $150M domestically and $350M worldwide. Either the holidays help this film, or it will not be able to cross the break-even point, assuming the budget for this film is large.
Thoughts on 2020 Slate: This is how you do a good lineup, Paramount. More of these and less of what we got in 2019 (there were fewer films in 2019 than there were supposed to be last year). While none of them will actually make $1B (maybe Top Gun: Maverick, but that’s a stretch), Paramount is actually using their other IP. Unlike 2019, where all of Paramount’s biggest films were wild cards, 2020 has guaranteed successes for Paramount which come in the form of A Quiet Place, Spongebob, Tom Clancy, GI Joe, Coming to America, and especially Top Gun should do well. Sonic should also be successful and may lead to a franchise. Maybe I’m being optimistic, but Paramount may have a chance at cracking $1B domestically, and they haven’t done that since 2014, but that’s mostly due to the amount of films that they are releasing next year, with a total of 16. 2019 may not have been the turnaround year, but 2020 has a good shot at helping Paramount.
The Future - Paramount Animation has two new animated films coming out in 2021 called Rumble and Luck. They also have the Tiger’s Apprentice and Jersey Crabs coming out in 2022. Paranormal Activity is being revived after 6 years. From Hasbro, we are getting a My Little Pony film, Micronauts, and a Dungeons & Dragons film. A Star Trek 4 is supposedly going to happen along with a Quentin Tarantino Star Trek. If Sonic the Hedgehog is a success, I could see Sega partner up with Paramount to make films off of other franchises like Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio. Indiana Jones is finally getting its 5th film after multiple delays. While Disney is distributing the film, Paramount is getting studio credit, so they’re bound to get some money from Indiana Jones 5. Paramount picked up Damien Chazelle’s Babylon and should come out December 2021. Mission: Impossible 7 and 8 are happening and are most likely the last two Mission: Impossible films Tom Cruise will be doing.

2019.06.23 19:09 LordWaffleDog Joseph Kosinski will one day make a great Blank Chank miniseries

Not many people get a Blank Check based on their work on commercials, but I can't think of a bigger Blank Check debut than giving someone 170 million dollars to direct a sequel to a dated cult classic with Tron Legacy. His follow-up is a collaboration with Tommy Cruise in the underrated, but underwhelming Oblivion. He then goes small with the terrible titled Only the Brave that no one saw, but fucks hard. Now he's directing a Top Gun sequel with both Cruise and Kilmer back.

He's only 4 movies in, but I think Kosinski just needs the right script and he will truly deliver a GREAT film.

2019.06.08 01:28 JuanRiveara Favorite Male Challengers According to the Sub(2019 Edition)

Last week I posted this thread asking for the members of the sub to rank your Top 5 favorite males and females. This list is for the favorite males, for favorite females go here. Without anything else to go over, here is the list:
25-11
25. Zach Nichols(RW San Diego 2)
24. Devin Walker(AYTO 3)
23. Hunter Barfield(AYTO 3)
22. Theo Campbell(Love Island)
21. Alton Williams(RW Las Vegas)
20. Timmy Beggy(RR 2nd Adventure)
19. Paulie Calafiore(Big Brother 18)
18. Nelson Thomas(AYTO 3)
17. Cohutta Grindstaff(RW Sydney)
16. Tony Raines(RW Skeletons)
15. Joss Mooney(Ex on the Beach UK)
14. Stephen Bear(Ex on the Beach UK)
13. Evan Starkman(Fresh Meat)
12. Kenny Santucci(Fresh Meat)
11. Leroy Garrett(RW Las Vegas 2)
10. Kyle Christie(Geordie Shore)
Last Year Rank: Debut
Peak: #10
Debut Season: Vendettas
Latest Season: War of the Worlds
Number of Seasons: 3
One of two new people in the Top 10 Kyle debuted on Vendettas where he finished 3rd overall and 2nd for the guys. He also started his showmance with Cara Maria that we all know how it turned out by now. Whatever you personally think of the drama between him, Cara, and Paulie many have seen Kyle come out of it as the good guy and to go along with he also showed a lot of heart and fire this last season which. Obviously this was enough to earn him the respect of fans and a spot in the Top 10.
9. Darrell Taylor(RR Campus Crawl)
Last Year Rank: #4(Down 5 Spots)
Peak: #4
Debut Season: The Gauntlet
Latest Season: Dirty 30/Vendettas(as a Mercenary)
Number of Seasons: 8
One of all the all time winningest Challengers Darrell started off his Challenge career with four straight wins and boasts an impressive 5-2-1 elimination record. The last time we saw Darrell was as a mercenary on Vendettas where he and Nelson were apart of the first elimination tie in Challenge history. Before that he suffered a loss to Tony in a Redemption challenge costing him a chance to earn his fifth win. Darrell has not been on a full season since but I’m sure many fans are hoping for him to return and reclaim his Challenge crown.
8. Johnny "Bananas" Devenanzio(RW Key West)
Last Year Rank: #8(No Change)
Peak: #8
Debut Season: The Duel
Latest Season: War of the Worlds
Number of Seasons: 18
Hate him or love him you can’t deny the impact Johnny has had on the show. The all-time winningest Challenge and the one with the most appearances it can be hard to imagine the show without him though with his early exit on WotW we did get to have taste of what it might look like. Johnny’s performances have been lackluster since his win with Sarah on Rivals 3. Not counting redemption eliminations he is now tied with Danny for most consecutive elimination defeats. Is there really a curse on him or have people finally decided to stop being his pawns? We will have to see if the next time he is on if he can earn back the title of Challenge Champ or if he’ll continue to come up short.
7. Jordan Wiseley(RW Portland)
Last Year Ranking: #10(Up 3 Spots)
Peak: #7
Debut Season: Rivals 2
Latest Season: Dirty 30/Vendettas(as a Mercenary)
Number of Seasons: 4
With only one and half hands Jordan has done more than most will do in their Challenge careers. He has won the last two seasons he was on and went to a final in his rookie season. Many want to see him come back to improve his legacy after a dominating Dirty 30 finals performance. If he comes back will he live up to expectations or would a return prove to be lackluster? Time can only tell.
6. Abram Boise(RR South Pacific)
Last Year Ranking: #6(No Change)
Peak: #6
Debut Season: The Gauntlet
Latest Season: Battle of the Bloodlines
Number of Seasons: 9
The second and last of Cara Maria’s exes in the Top 10 Abram endeared himself to fans with his crazy personality. While it can be too much for some people his passion and energy has proven to be enough to find himself in the hearts of many Challenge fans. Since his last season and break up with Cara he has seemed to be in a good place in his life and has found a new girl he is now married to so congratulations on Abram all around.
5. Turabi "Turbo" Çamkıran(Survivor Turkey)
Last Year Ranking: Debut
Peak: #5
Debut Season: War of the Worlds
Latest Season: War of the Worlds
Number of Seasons: 1
The highest debut in Top 10, latest person in the Top 10 to join the Challenge family, and the highest ranking foreigner Turbo did the impossible last season where he won on his rookie season, a feat no rookie has done in a season with individual winners(or winner in Turbo’s case). Whether it’s his passion for competition, his good hearted nature, or just his accent it’s hard not to love Turbo. I definitely see him rising up the rankings if he continues to be on.
4. Derrick Kosinski(RR X-Treme)
Last Year Ranking: #5(Up 1 Spot)
Peak: #4
Debut Season: Battle of the Sexes 2
Latest Season: Dirty 30/Vendettas(as a Mercenary)
Number of Seasons: 10
Derrick started off his Challenge career as the lovable underdog but evolved into one of the all-time winningest Challengers with three wins under his belt. The highest ranking Road Ruler on the list Derrick was a mainstay on the show from his first appearance on Sexes 2 to Cutthroat. His last full season was his comeback season on Dirty 30 in which he performed great all season but came up short in the final finishing second to Jordan. We did however see him as a mercenary on Vendettas winning his epic elimination vs Joss. While he has yet to be back since he is still a big part of the Challenge world hosting the podcast Challenge Mania with Scott Yager. While that might be enough to sustain some fans of his I’m sure many are waiting for the day where Scott opens a show saying Derrick will be away for a couple months.
3. Landon Lueck(RW Philadelphia)
Last Year Ranking: #3(No Change)
Peak: #3
Debut Season: The Inferno II
Latest Season: Fresh Meat II
Number of Seasons: 4
Often thought of as the GOAT of the show Landon started out great winning his first two seasons on Inferno 2 and Gauntlet 2. While he was great on those seasons his legend truly starts on Duel 2 where he dominated a pretty good male cast on pretty much all the challenges. While a disappointing elimination loss to Brad cost him that season he returned for another go on Fresh Meat 2. While Kenny and Laurel dominated the season Landon managed to make it to the final and literally pushed his partner to a win on his final season to date. Landon‘s competitive spirit mixed with his friendly personality created a challenger who is easy to love and pretty much impossible to hate making him a Top 3 challenger for many fans.
2. Chris "CT" Tamburello(RW Paris)
Last Year Ranking: #1(Down 1 Spot)
Peak: #1
Debut Season: The Inferno
Latest Season: War of the Worlds
Number of Seasons: 15
CT was a dominant #1 these last two rankings but after lackluster showing on WotW he has finally been taken down from that spot. CT is the person we’ve seen grow the most on the show, from almost killing someone on Duel 2 to now being a father and one of the most chill people show, it has been amazing to see his evolution. While he only has two wins to show for himself CT has without a doubt been one of the most dominant performers in Challenge history, even with his dad bod he won Invasion and dominated Dirty 30 up until the final. His early exit on WotW has hopefully motivated him into getting into better shape but even if it didn’t he’s sure to be a joy on the next season he is on.
1. Wes Bergmann(RW Austin)
Last Year Ranking: #2(Up 1 Spot)
Peak: #1
Debut Season: Fresh Meat
Latest Season: War of the Worlds
Number of Seasons: 11
Wes finally returned to the show for the first time since Rivals 3 and with his strong performance he was able to bump himself into the top spot. While his appearances on the Champs vs seasons were great it was even better to get him on the real thing. With Johnny out this early Wes became the narrator on the season and while he only got third he seemed to win the battle for camera time. From being on one of the most popular Real World seasons to being the elimination king to just being one of the most entertaining members on the cast there’s no shortage of reasons to love and all of those added up to him claiming the top spot this year.
That’s the list, leave your thoughts below if you want and make sure to check the female list linked above.
Edit: Fixed the numbers for 25-11

2019.04.04 19:18 JuanRiveara Most Unbreakable Challenge Records

Throughout the over 20 years of a The Challenge there have been many records that have risen and fallen but some could very well be considered unbreakable. Here is a list of a couple I find to be the most unbreakable:
———
Youngest Person to Win a Season
Evelyn Smith at 20 years, 4 months, 20 days on The Inferno 3
This is unbreakable because there’s no way the show would cast someone under 21 in this day and age of the show, considering this record is based off air date of the final they probably have to be 19 while the season is filming.
———
Oldest Born Person to Win a Season
Eric Nies Born on May 23, 1971
Much like Ev’s record this one is safe because there’s no way the show casts someone born earlier than May 1971 to break this record, probably the safest one in show history.
———
Most Eliminations Avoided
Darrell Taylor at 33 Eliminations Avoided from The Gauntlet to Fresh Meat
It is so tough to avoid going into eliminations nowadays, the longest in recent seasons was Cara avoiding 18 between Dirty 30 and Final Reckoning. Darrell was always good enough to avoid his team throwing him in and scary enough to face for the opponents to not throw him in plus he got along with everyone so no one really targeted him, just a great combination for the earlier seasons.
———
Most Elimination Wins in a Season
Sarah Greyson on The Gauntlet and Wes Bergmann/Casey Cooper on Fresh Meat with 5
I think it would be possible to tie this record but to break it and get 6 wins in one season would be a ridiculously hard thing to do. It isn’t impossible to do theoretically but realistically it won’t happen.
———
Longest Span of Seasons
Veronica Portillo, first season Challenge 2000(season 3) and latest season Final Reckoning(season 32)
The only person who could realistically break this record is Mark Long who first appeared on season 2 of the show but I think it’s doubtful he will return given he’s almost 50 at this point so this record from Veronica should stay intact.
———
Most Seasons Won in a Row/Most Seasons Won to Start Career
Darrell Taylor starting out 4-0(The Gauntlet, The Inferno, The Inferno 2, and Fresh Meat)
Darrell being able to win his first four seasons is something that will never be replicated along with his winning of four seasons in a row. The only other people who have won three seasons in a row are Jamie Murray(3-0 with Extreme Challenge, Battle of the Sexes, and The Gauntlet 2) and Derrick Kosinski(The Inferno 3, The Island, and The Ruins). If Johnny doesn’t get backpacked then Blue Team on Cutthroat does have a shot to win which would have brought Derrick to 4 in a row and Johnny would have gotten 5 in a row but without team challenges this record in out of reach for anyone.
———
Those are just a couple records I think are unbreakable on the show. Feel free to leave any you think are unbreakable below.

2019.03.12 08:50 PleiadianJedi Ketogenic Diets and the Effects on Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes

Ketogenic Diets and the Effects on Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes
Kyle Uhlich
Rose State College
Abstract This paper explores the benefits ketogenic diets have upon our health. Having been used and documented as a regime for health for many years, it has reemerged as a popular treatment in today’s culture. Research is showing the diet to be a more viable option in taming superfluous health conditions. The diet is examined along with the efficacy it has upon improvement of obesity and type 2 diabetes. Keywords: ketogenic diet, obesity, diabetes
Introduction A ketogenic diet (KD) is one that is low in carbohydrates and high in fats. The body uses glucose as fuel, which it derives from the consumption of carbohydrates. When there are reduced carbohydrates, the body is forced to find alternative sources of fuel. As a result, the liver then transforms fat in fatty acids and produces ketone bodies (KB) during a process known as ketosis. (Gupta et al., 2017). Ketosis is a physiological mechanism in which the body utilizes KB for fuel, contrary to the normal state of the body using glucose for fuel. This is not to be confused with the pathological mechanism known as ketoacidosis in type 1 diabetes (Paoli, A., Rubini, A., Volek, J. S., & Grimaldi, K. A., 2013). Ketone bodies consist of acetoacetate, beta hydroxybutyric acid, and acetone (Paoli et al., 2013). These ketones are then utilized as the key source of fuel for the body.
The primary system of the body using glucose as fuel can be likened to using wood for fire. A log of fire may last one hour; however a lump of coal can last upwards to twenty-four hours. Ketosis is like using coal in place of wood. Ketone bodies are metabolized faster than glucose, provide more energy, and reduce the amount of waste (Holland, 2016).
When in a ketogenic state, the body’s insulin levels are lowered. This lower level of insulin reduces the need for “fat and glucose storage” (Brouns, 2018).
History Even though ketogenic diets appear to be a modern popular diet, they have long been regarded as a viable option in the maintenance of health. Bigu, a practice known as grain avoidance, has roots that date to the Han Dynasty in 206 BC. It was taught by Li Shaojun as “a method of worshipping the furnace and abstaining from cereals to prevent old age” (Fabrizio, 2008). Harmful entities were believed to be generated in the brain, intestines and epigastric regions if grains were consumed. It was also thought that consumption of these cereals caused the intestines to decay and therefore induced pain (Fabrizio, 2008). In 1797, Dr. John Rollo published An Account of Two Cases of Diabetes Mellitus, where he used a high-fat and low-carbohydrate diet to treat two Army officers (Everett, 2018). He was able to successfully reverse the symptoms in one of the soldiers and a century later in 1898 Richard Thomas Williamson wrote how “all carbohydrates should be cut off” in Diabetes Mellitus and Its Treatment (Everett, 2018).
Tracing back to the 1920’s, ketogenic diets have been used in the treatment and maintenance of epilepsy (Paoli et. al., 2013). The original intention was for epileptic patients to fast in hopes of decreasing the occurrence of seizures. It was soon realized the same results could be claimed through fasting from carbohydrates (Iliades, 2011).
Recently it has been used to treat obesity and type 2 diabetes. The KD is explored with its efficacy in losing weight and reversing the symptoms and causes of type 2 diabetes.
Method Search A EBSCOhost search was conducted through Rose State College’s database. Sources were collected through CINAHL, Academic Search Complete, Nursing Academic Edition, and Medicine with Full Text. Searches consisted of a combination of Boolean operators in conjunction with key phrases: keto*, diabetes, and obesity. The findings were limited to results with full text. Search results that included ketoacidosis in the subject name were examined for relevancy and disregarded if no correlation was found. Results containing children or geriatrics were omitted. Results from eleven medical journals were analyzed and compared to see commonalities.
Results Obesity Ketogenic diets were shown as the catalyst for sudden changes in weight loss as well as other metabolic factors. The trends were quite similar throughout the studies. KD’s have “led to a significant decrease in body weight, BMI, abdominal circumference, both systolic and diastolic blood pressure, triglyceride levels, fasting plasma glucose, and HbA1c, (and) an increase in HDL cholesterol levels” (Kosinski & Jornayvaz, 2017). One study had 90% of the patients having lost at least 7.5% of initial body weight (Castaldo, G., Monaco, L., Castaldo, L., Galdo, G., & Cereda, E., 2016).
A common comparison among the studies were an intervention group, low-carbohydrate diet, with a control group, either create-your-plate or low-fat diet. The results consistently favored the groups with a diet low in carbohydrates. In one study, approximately 76% of participants in the intervention group completed the study whereas only 57% completion was observed in the control group (Yancy WS Jr., Olsen MK, Guyton JR, Bakst RP, & Westman EC. 2004). Another study had 92% retention in the intervention group and only 54% retention in the control group (Saslow et al., 2017). This could be due to the control group not having seen the results they were desiring or a difficulty in adherence to the diet.
Cicero et al., conducted a study in 2015, on the middle and long-term effects of a low-carbohydrate diet. It could be hypothesized that weight loss seems to level out after approximately twelve weeks, thus indicating a ketogenic diet is beneficial on the middle-term and shows little to no improvements on the long-term (Cicero et al., 2015).
 Figure 1. Body Weight Loss Comparison, from K. Uhlich, 2018.
A group of risk factors including high blood pressure, high blood sugar, abdominal fat, and healthy cholesterol levels is known as metabolic syndrome. In the searches, metabolic syndrome decreased. There is speculation regarding whether a positive change in metabolic syndrome is due to weight loss or a ketogenic diet.
 Figure 2. Blood Pressure Change Comparison, from K. Uhlich, 2018.
Type 2 Diabetes The lack of processed sugar and carbohydrates found in the ketogenic diet was found to be helpful to type 2 diabetics, who have to manage glucose intake due to insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is the body’s inability to accurately control and manage glucose levels. Muscle cells aren’t able to seize circulating glucose and therefore much of it is diverted to the liver and converted into fat.
Since carbohydrates are the major macronutrient raising blood glucose levels, “researchers have aimed to reduce the amount of carbohydrates in the meals to study the effects” (Gupta et al., 2017). Overall, ketogenic diets improve glycemic control, eliminate/reduce diabetic medications, increase high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol, and cause weight loss in type 2 diabetes patients compared to low sugar diets (Gupta et al., 2017).
Some studies reported withdrawal of insulin in a matter of weeks in patients with type 2 diabetes who were fed a low-carbohydrate diet (Paoli et al., 2013). A two week low-carbohydrate study demonstrated many enhancements with plasma glucose falling from 7.5 to 6.3 mmol/l, haemoglobin A1c dropping from 7.3% to 6.8%, and a dramatic 75% improvement in insulin sensitivity (Paoli et al., 2013). Conversely, a 56 week study exhibited 51% improvement in fasting glucose levels, 29% improvement in total cholesterol, 63% improvement in high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol, 33% improvement in low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol, and 41% improvement in triglycerides (Paoli et al., 2013). Insulin resistance, prediabetes, and type 2 diabetes are more clearly being understood as stress responses from the ingestion of too many carbohydrates (Scherger, 2017).
Discussion Pros Physiological Benefits. The ketogenic diet helps to suppress appetite, support weight loss, and decrease the effects of metabolic syndrome by improving numerous health factors.
The results consistently show positive changes; however, it is argued whether these changes are the result of weight loss strictly from adherence to a ketogenic diet or from the actual macronutrients in the diet. “Although significant reductions in fat mass often results when individuals restrict carbohydrate [sic], the improvements in glycaemic control, haemoglobin A1c and lipid markers, as well as reduced use or withdrawal of insulin and other medications in many cases, occurs before significant weight loss occurs” (Paoli et al., 2013). Castaldo, Monaco, Castaldo, Galdo, & Cereda observed that complications related with excess weight not only depend on visceral fat but also on diet composition and how macronutrients are metabolized (2016). Both these finding are crucial in proving that improvements can be made independent of actual weight loss, which in turn validates the benefits associated with ketogenic diets and the macronutrients involved.
Human nutrition begins with Colostrum from breastmilk, which is ketogenic and thoroughly serves the needs of the newborn (Gupta et al., 2017). If our bodies naturally utilize a KD from breastmilk, would it be too bizarre to think we could continue this development?
Reversal of Type 2 Diabetes. In several cases, the ketogenic diet has been shown to put type 2 diabetes symptoms in remission. Jason Fung, a doctor who wrote The Diabetes Code, theorizes that we are treating diabetes backwards; blood sugar is being treated as the symptom, instead of insulin resistance as the cause. He is a strong advocate for low-carbohydrate diets, but an even stronger advocate for fasting. Sarah Hallberg is a physician who advocates for a low-carbohydrate diet and runs her own clinic which is touted as “the first clinically-proven treatment to safely and sustainably reverse type 2 diabetes without medications of surgery” (Virta, n.d.). She is well-known for her TED talk Reversing Type 2 Diabetes Starts with Ignoring the Guidelines. Ivor Cummins is a chemical engineer who is able to offer a mathematical mindset to the diabetes epidemic. Dr. David Unwin, a general practitioner, who spent 25 years treating diabetes through conventional means and seeing frustratingly few positive results, has come across an alternative approach using a low-carbohydrate diet. He completely shifted his practice and now, his patients spend much less money each year on drugs for diabetes. He is known for giving a simple illustrative approach to understanding the glycemic index of certain foods.
 Figure 3. The Glycemic Index [Sugar Equivalent Infographics]. From D. Unwin, Public Health Collaboration, n.d.
Scherger states there are type 2 diabetes reversal clinics opening across the United States. Having both successfully created and run their own clinics, Eric Westman and Sarah Hallberg are both advocates of treatment through low-carbohydrate ketogenic diets (2017).
Creativity. Because of how limited the diet is for people in Western culture, the KD calls for them to use creativity in meal preparation. Fat content in meals provide a “greater feeling of fullness” and has “the least effect on blood-sugar levels and insulin response” according to Glasper (2016). Contrary to popular belief, the ingestion of fat doesn’t make one fat nor does it cause heart disease; full fat foods actually protect the heart (Glasper, 2016). Meals high in fat also tend to taste richer.
Because there is so much wheat, corn, and flour in our meals, substitutions must be readily available. A common modification is to replace almond flour or coconut flour in place of wheat flour. Another adaptation is to swap cauliflower in place of rice or other starchy carbohydrates. The internet is abound with plentiful websites providing other simple substitutions. There are endless possibilities of creative ketogenic meals to be discovered and utilized.
Appetite Suppressant Numerous sources claim ketogenic diets have a suppressant effect on appetite. Because these low-carbohydrate diets lead to a reduction in appetite, weight loss and various disease risk factors are the resulting improvements (Brouns, 2018).
Cons Fiber Supply Because most carbohydrate-rich foods are high in dietary fibers, a solid concern arises whether substitution of specific macronutrients would cause a decrease in the body’s supply of fiber (Brouns, 2018). Ingestion of more whole grain versus a lower intake of whole grain is a hypothesized improvement, however that would once again increase overall carbohydrate consumption. This might be circumvented with an adequate supply of fresh vegetables and careful consumption of fruits dense with fiber. Because the amount of carbohydrates is drastically decreased in ketogenic diets, it seems the quality of carbohydrates is much more important than the quantity.
Electrolytes Depletion Ketogenic programs are notorious for electrolyte imbalances and an increase of uric acid (Castaldo et al., 2016. Electrolyte depletion is commonly referred to as keto flu; the name does not indicate the cause nor does it answer whether it can be avoided. Because of this ambiguity, it has been suggested in various online forums to be replaced with the more clinically accurate term of electrolyte depletion. Sufficient supplementation of essential sodium, potassium, and magnesium are needed to avoid the negative effects associated with a KD.
Side Effects Some common adverse effects from a KD, range from constipation, headache, halitosis, muscle cramps, diarrhea, general weakness, and rash (Yancy et al., 2004). Moreover, these symptoms seem to be short-lived and may be diminished through adequate fluid, vegetable, multivitamin, electrolyte, and mineral consumption.
Stamina There is trivial evidence of a ketogenic diet causing a decrease in physical performance through athletic activities. A KD was shown to have a “slightly negative impact on physical performance”, however the findings led them to the conclusion that KD “does not impact physical fitness… that would impair activities of daily life” (Urbain et al., 2017).
Perishable Foods. One detriment to maintaining a diet free from carbohydrates, is that most food options are perishable. The benefit of grains and many carbohydrates are their long shelf-life. Beef jerky, cheeses, canned meats, pepperoni and various seeds are some ketogenic friendly alternatives that have higher than average shelf-lives.
Hard to Maintain Achieving and maintaining a balanced ketogenic diet in Western culture can be difficult; no meal seems complete without a side of French fries or potatoes. Most American restaurants are still stuck in the lifestyle of prioritizing carbohydrates as the most important food group. On the contrary, Saslow et al., demonstrated success through an online interventional ketogenic diet and this online delivery “may allow them to have a wider reach in the successful self-management of type 2 diabetes” (2017). More and more resources are flooding the internet with popular and viable options for the average consumers to satiate their low-carbohydrate needs.
Conclusion A ketogenic diet demonstrates the power of diet to manage and treat various physical disorders. The evidence clearly proves how food can be a medicine in its own right. Although ketosis seems to be a fruitful way of decreasing weight rapidly, it is important to pay attention to the sources and quality of food through the regimen. Eradicating processed carbohydrates and added sugars from the diet and replacing them with high-quality organic vegetables seems to be the safest and most nutritional adaptation to a ketogenic lifestyle.
Some people may find a ketogenic diet to be a successful tool in losing weight, however others may not. Castaldo et al., offer a “sequential dietary rehabilitation program… [which] enables obtaining the metabolic benefits of ketogenic dietary regimens,… but also limit their potential adverse effects by early switching to a balanced and healthy dietary pattern which considers carbohydrates as the main source of calories” (2016). In other words, a KD can be the catalyst for an individual to drastically lose weight and the individual could then choose to discontinue the diet and replace it with one that is balanced and healthy in carbohydrate macronutrients.
It is up to the individual to find out what is the most efficient and harmonious diet to achieve the results desired. Maimonides offers the simplest explanation, “No disease that can be treated with diet should be treated by any other means” (n.d.).
