The Alliance breaks down TJ's "brutal" final while debating ski houses, snow vs. sand finals, and old school music before being surprised by Johnny Bananas to talk about everything Challenge both in this season and season's past after (SPOILER) winning his 7th championship.

Tears were shed, friendships were strengthened, and bruises were formed before THE MOST BRUTAL FINAL EVER. We talk about car bowling, a beatdown in the Hell In A Cell of The Challenge, and the heartstrings being tugged by an unlikely source before pivoting from a Dog Walk preview podcast to a Dog Walk reaction podcast.
It was an uneven episode for The Challenge, so things go off the rails right away as Captain Cons takes the floor. Following 14:30 minutes of chit chat about drinking with celebrities, we get into an elimination made to spark drama (albeit worthless drama in this case), some long awaited tears, and a RUTHLESS line from TJ as contenders continue to whittle away.
We also dive into the proposed Old School Challenge with favorites like Mark Long, Landon, Darrell, and Rachel.
Everyone have a Happy 4th and be safe out there! Especially you, Cons.
A little bit of canoodling led to a whole lot of drama with red skulls being hard to come by right before TJ's challenge. Bayleigh was fired up while Melissa has us all worried about her baby. But through it all, MTV continues to drop nothing but fire tracks.
Another week, another challenge with tanks but not before some random nonsense talk for the first 7.5 minutes of the pod. It's down to the needy greedy and things are getting heated in the house. Namely Melissa making fun of Josh. We also get more last minute edits, Offspring, and an elimination before a solid Rest Of The Season On followed by a breakdown of Cons' awful Dogwalk draft and reminiscing about college at the 52 minute mark.
Tonight the Alliance discusses one of the weirder episodes in Challenge history with Dee being fired days before it aired for comments she made about the Black Lives Matter movement that likely led to the heavily edited episode we watched tonight. We broke down yet another challenge with tanks, Bananas getting his groove back, Melissa's baby snagging another W, and just a very weird episode as the real real world made its way into The Challenge.
FYI, with the episode being so short and choppy, we also had plenty of discussions about our favorite Nelly songs from 20:00-35:00 and ended with JJ heading back to work as well as Clem getting a vasectomy starting at the 1:00:00 mark for people that want more Challenge-centric content.
The Mega Powers explode along with potentially a few stomachs following tonight's challenge. We break down Josh breaking his face, the best/worst that Burger King has to offer, MTV's DJ continuing to ride a heater, and of course the battle we've all been waiting for: Wes vs. Bananas
We start this week's episode immediately on an AIM name tangent that goes until 12:58. After that, we discuss Big T taking a big L, the return of swimming challenges with all the usual hijinks (but no goddamn rats), Josh looking for a new enemy, and Aneesa getting that skull.
Finally, we include a snippet of this week's Podfathers episode where we talked to Cory about being a reality star on both The Challenge and Teen Mom, having a baby during a pandemic, being a dad with some of his worst moments caught on camera, and of course beating Cons in an arm wrestling match.
A big flashback episode for anybody that went to college in the early-mid 2000s as we had foam pits and dumb drunk injuries. The Alliance relives some of their glory days while also trying to figure out what Nelson's endgame was on a night that changed EVERYTHING. A double elimination night.
Hurricane Nany showed up, Nelson got caught eating chess pieces again, the bunker is causing mental chaos, and Zach was back playing games with Jenna's heart. There may have been only drama and an elimination this episode but The Challenge keeps trucking like a certain someone that showed up big time when it mattered tonight.
The Challenge veered off its typical formula, but we got some drama with a guy truly jumping in his own girl's DMs with her not knowing, ex-boyfriend warfare, TJ coming in fast and furious, and some great throwback tunes. We don't know if we will get on track next episode but the preview for the rest of the season has us excited
Bear has finally gone Full Bear and we absolutely love him for it. To nobody's surprise, Jenna is worried about Zach being home without her, Swaggy C is a day trader clearing 75 grand during a pandemic, and TJ is falling in love with another scrappy underdog living in an elimination groundhog day that may or may not be dead right now.

Fire extinguisher fights on camera, threesomes off camera, and Nelson getting carried out in a metallic bag. Lots to break down in a typically chaotic episode of The Challenge that could be the beginning of the end for the Wes/Bananas alliance before a potential explosive episode next week.
The Challenge keeps bringing the heat with everything we like: Gratuitous explosions, unlikely alliances, costume party nights, and people with the ordacity to potentially burn someone with a burn vote.
We also get a quick lesson on Halloween around the world and learn about some old flames in the Alliance's lives before a legit David vs. Goliath matchup.
Cory is dominating challenges like he dominated Conor in an arm wrestling contest, Wes and Bananas are working together to ruin people's lives, and Dee just gave the best competitor in the house a free ride to the finals. What the hell is going on in Prague?
The guys also delve into the supertwist, which cast members are on OnlyFans, and which Challenge Quarantine House they would choose to be cooped up with during a pandemic.
Finally No Quitters...HAS COME BACK TO THE INTERNET AIRWAVES! After a brief hiatus that definitely involved no quitting at all, some old friends and new dive into the premiere of the new Challenge season: Total Madness. The name may be meh but the cast looks pretty good (don't worry, we broke down all the newer competitors for other people that took a Challenge hiatus) and the This Season On looks as good as always.
So buckle up and get ready for another season of The Challenge that will have to get us by for the next few months since there are no sports at all. Don't quit on us, we won't quit on you.
