The state of relationships on “The Challenge” is never peachy keen, but to ensure there’s enough tension to properly stir the upcoming Thailand season’s pot, MTV decided to once again toss a bunch of “Rivals” into a pressure cooker, with teams of two enemies each competing for a ton of $$$. Get ready for the circus, people.
The reasoning behind the list of duos below includes a nice mix of old-school beefs and some relatively newish, but the one pairing we’re most excited to see make the cut, CT and Wes, harbor issues that bubbled over during the first “Rivals” season. We’re crossing our fingers that the few years their BS was allowed to fester will spark another 9-hour scream fest!
And because no “Challenge” would be complete without at least a few pieces of fresh meat to serve as punching bags, we’re happy to learn that “Real World” enemies Jordan and Marlon, as well as Jessica and Anastasia, have thrown their rookie hats into the ring. Can’t wait to see how the delicate Portland girls will handle being chucked into the lion’s den with the likes of powerhouses Aneesa, Camila and Paula!
