This blog will pertain to all things about The Challenge, including after-shows, pre-shows, reunions etc. My opinions, comments, and predictions will cover the entire show which will air on February 7th, at 9 PM on MTV.
With eleven more days until the premiere of The Challenge: Invasion of the Champions, MTV finally blessed everyone with a trailer, short teaser videos, and interesting cast bios. The theme of this challenge is the invasion. The cast is split up into two. One team is the Challengers, those who’ve never one a challenge. While the other team is the Champions, which is made up of beastly competitors like Laurel and CT. The Challenge will start of with only the challengers for ten days, and then the champions will be the plot twist this season. It makes sense to have the rookies compete against ultimate veterans-who’ve won one or more challenges.
This season definitely will be interesting based off the cast members. The Champions consist of : CT, Laurel, Cara Maria, Camila, Bananas, Darrell, Zach and Ashley. Ashley and Zach are hardly champions since they’ve only won one challenge and it was a team challenge. However, MTV probably wanted Zach to be surrounded by both of his insanely beautiful exes Ashley and Jenna. It’s always a good season when Laurel and CT together since they’ve both been on a hiatus from the show for over two years. Unfortunately, Bananas, the champion everyone loves to hate is back. It’ll be an interesting season for him in regards to his politics since he screwed his partner, Sarah over in the previous season. Camila is always great until she turns into the Camil-ANTOR which always affects her game. Cara Maria is back since winning Bloodlines, but with Laurel here this season she’ll definitely have to step it up. I’ve never watch Darrell, but according to social media, he is a challenge legend.
The Challengers team look very interesting. There are some rookies from Are You The One like Hunter, Anthony, Dario, Nelson, and Amanda. I don’t have much faith in any of the AYTO cast because most of the house are from Real World, and tend to send AYTO cast mates home within the first couple of weeks. The rest of the cast are Anika,Ashley M., Jenna, LaToya,Kailah, Marie, Nicole, Sylvia, Tony, Cory, Shane, and Bruno. Out of the challengers, Jenna and Cory are the only two people to ever place. Jenna’s been on the show three times and place second and third. Cory has been on the show twice and place second during the Bloodlines season. I have no doubt that Jenna, Nicole, and Cory will make it far if they don’t place.
The trailer previewed the Camil-ANTOR possibly getting into a brawl, a steamy hook up between Kailah and someone, Cara Maria and Nicole kicking ass in a physical battle, and the champion invading the house. Based off the trailer, I predict that Kailah will be hooking up with Cory, CT will destroy Zach in a physical challenge, Camila will possibly be fighting either with Bananas or Kailah, and Jenna will be distracted by her two-timing ex, Zach.
MTV also released a short video of the champions talking smack. The video was entertaining, goofy, and showed each competitors personality well. It’s going to be a good season, mostly because of the champions. I’m excited to see how some of the challengers compete since some of the rookies tend to only cause drama instead of compete at a chance of winning some money.
