The Alliance talks about The Final to the longest Challenge in the history of the planet and discusses the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad supertwist that MTV pulled on all its viewers.

A couple of notes:

1. JJ's connection went in and out, so his audio was tricky. We got as much of it as we could.

2. There won't be another podcast this season. We may record a quick recap if the reunion is extra crazy, but that likely won't be the case. We also won't be doing the podcast for the Pros vs. Joes show that is next.

3. If this was our last podcast, we wanted to thank all of the listeners for their support over the years. You guys and girls are the best listeners in the universe and were the true MVPs of every season. We owe everyone a sincere thank you for all the support whether it was listening to the podcast, interacting with us on Twitter (@NoQuittersPod), or just saying hi when you saw us in person. You are truly the CT that carried us on your back.

The Alliance gets back together after the Yankees were dismantled in Game 7 of the ALCS to discuss the happenings of the last few weeks, talk about the last few episodes of The Challenge as well as the upcoming Champs vs. Stars show and just how lonnnnng this season has been.

Since The Alliance won't be able to record this week, we are going to throw it back to an interview we did with the coolest man on the planet when the podcast first started. Yup, you read that right. The best host and coolest person in the universe, T.J. Lavin, joined us to talk about this season and past seasons of The Challenge, what happens behind the scenes, his favorite competitors, how he got chosen to host the show, and MUCH more.

It sounds like tonight was a "full" episode of The Challenge, so we should have plenty to talk about next week!

Note: We had some connection issues with T.J. here and there but everything came out pretty well in the end.

Our pal @BarstoolReags fills in for international playboy @BarstoolJJ as The Challenge goes back to it's 10:00 pm roots. We gripe about the time change, the pace of the season, the commercial breaks, the editing, the latest #SuperTwist, and a bunch of other stuff. I would say we were cranky because of the time change, but based on our Twitter replies, you guys aren't pleased either. We also discussed how much we loved the old Challenges they showed, faking injuries to get out of the gym, and how goddamn awesome and cool TJ Lavin is.

The Alliance was joined by Camila, Cara Maria, Tori, and Cory at Barstool HQ to discuss The Challenge: Dirty Thirty. First we talked to Tori (Are You The One Tori, not Brad's wife Tori) about what it's like being a rookie/AYTO scab in a Challenge house, being intimidated by her competitors, and how she ended up in reality TV. 

Then we were joined by Camila who became the first ever recurring guest in No Quitters history (since the Bananas podcast with Clem was never technically recorded). We got The Camilinator's thoughts on this season, what her workout plan is all about, and 

Cara Maria then became the second ever recurring guest on the show and dropped a huge announcement on our heads and talked about what it's like to have a crazy person as part of her "baggage".

And then finally we had Mr. Popcorn Muscles himself Cory join us. JJ broke down how Cory could become more likable or actually just likable at all on The Challenge and we had an incredible showdown between Cory and Captain Hardo that may not have been the best competition for a podcast. But still fun nonetheless.

And of course we had some random My Cousin Vinny talk as well as a brief discussion about Adam Sandler's old comedy CDs.

Apr 12, 2017

What is the bloodbath on tonight's podcast? Is it the Challengers getting eliminated one by one as their brains bleed from thinking? Or is it JJ and Connor picking on a defenseless Clem? We also discuss what this week's Next On could lead to and what different weird dreams mean.
