I watched the entire season of ‘MTV’s The Challenge: Rivals’ in one day. I heard that there’s a new season coming up in July and was inspired to search On Demand to see if I could find the previous season. And I did. I love watching these crazy characters compete against each other in all sorts of challenges I know I would never have the courage to attempt particularly with the horrendous hangovers I know these people are bound to be suffering from much of the time. I’ve watched a bunch of seasons (shhhh, don’t tell) and I know CT, Kenny, Paula, Evelyn, Tyler, Laurel and Wes. Oh hell, who am I kidding. I know 98% of them. It’s very very sad. I don’t so much enjoy watching these fools in their drunken escapades after the challenges that invariably result in a thrown punch or a sex tape opportunity, but it’s like a train wreck that I can’t look away from.
I. NEED. HELP.
Aren’t some of these people in their 30’s by now? They’ve got kids and responsibilities. I’m not sure what that says about them. But what I do know is that whatever it says about them, it still doesn’t make them more pathetic than me who is watching this crap tv. Worse, ENJOYING this crap tv. If you haven’t begun mocking me yet, you may begin in 3, 2, 1.
