Kyle, Cara, and Paulie all on another season together? smh
I'm not familiar with any of the newbies and I have no idea what Bk chat is.
I read in an article either in People magazine or Hollywood Life that Paulie maybe burying the hatchet with Kyle. Paulie acknowledged that he needs to focus on his overall game strategy and not so much be so focused on Kyle.
Paulie took himself out of the game with his headlong dive in the last challenge. He states hypothermia as what happened to him but he messed up his neck for sure.
Whatever happened to that Stranded with a million dollars show? I guess it was cancelled. Cause I remember that some of them wanted to be on The Challenge, especially the one guy that was feuding with Cara Maria online.
‘The Challenge’ Star Amanda Garcia Says She’s Done Appearing on MTV Shows; Says Network Tried to Silence Her “With Legal Threats” Following Alleged Assault MARCH 7, 2019 by THE ASHLEY
“Peace OUT!” Amanda Garcia says she’s through with The Challenge— and MTV– due to the way she says the network has treated her following an alleged assault she says she suffered while filming the “War of the Worlds” season.
As The Ashley reported on Wednesday, various ‘Challenge’ cast members provided details of the alleged assault, with all of them stating that while in the ‘Challenge’ house, three male “War of the Worlds” cast members allegedly wrapped Amanda’s entire face, head and hair with tape, despite her cries for them to stop.
On Thursday morning, Amanda tweeted about the incident, stating that she had moved on, but by Thursday afternoon, she was tweeting a different tune. She wrote that MTV was allegedly trying to use legal threats to keep her from discussing the incident.
“PSA: I’m disgusted w/MTV & the way I’ve been treated about all of this s** ESP when I’ve been so calm/understanding,” Amanda wrote on Twitter. “They want to silence me w/legal threats but go to the media & lie? LOL. After the reunion my career with MTV is OVER. I don’t need their s**t I promise u.
“SO MTV STOP CALLING ME FOR NEXT SEASON BECAUSE THE ANSWER IS NO. Give my spot to some desperate a** kisser instead,” she added.

1,037 7:44 PM - Mar 7, 2019 Twitter Ads info and privacy 262 people are talking about this Hours earlier, Amanda wrote on social media that she had forgiven those involved in the alleged incident and even praised the show’s production team for handling the alleged incident so well.
“PSA: I appreciate all the support and I know I haven’t really spoke on anything…but I don’t want this blown up into something it’s not,” she wrote Thursday morning on Twitter. “I know their intentions were never to hurt me; it just went too far. It happens to the best of us. They’ve apologized. I’ve moved on…
“I don’t want you guys to feel bad for me cuz that’s not who I am. Production handled it the way they did and it is what it is. Nothing will change it. Lets all move forward and forever buy tape from the dollar store cuz that shit is A HELL of a lot less sticky. -I love you all!”
It is not known what caused Amanda to change her tune so quickly in regard to the situation. However, in a series of tweets posted on Wednesday, ‘Challenge’ vet Shane Landrum also mentioned cast members being threatened with a lawsuit for talking about the alleged incident.
“I’ve gone unprivate so all ‘Challenge’ fans know that certain entities at a certain television studio are sending threatening letters to cast telling them they will be sued if they discuss Amanda’s assault and its cover up…Demand the footage,” Shane wrote in tweets that have since been deleted. “Just like a racist assault that was covered up. Only you can demand the footage.”
His tweets, along with a YouTube video posted by “War of the Worlds” cast member Da’Vonne Rogers that described the alleged incident, prompted some of the show’s fans to create a Change.org petition that urged MTV to air the footage from the alleged incident.
Amanda was drunk out of her mind and yelling at everyone for 6 to 7 hours straight and folks just wanted her to shut up. At the reunion this was all explained.
It's unknown when it'll air but my guess is it'll air right after either the current season of Ex On The Beach (which is on Tuesday nights) or the current season of AYTO? (Wednesday nights) which would probably be in September. Filming for War of the Worlds ended the first week of last December and aired the first week of last February so September/October wouldn't surprise me
"Bloody Hell" was this seasons original title, which is why in the trailer we see Bananas saying it during what looks like his annual lame first night speech/toast lol. The name was changed to "War Of The Worlds 2" at some point later on
The first two episodes are running and hour and 15 minutes.
I don't mind Wes politicking as the game is so twisty you have to do what you have to do to survive. While Jordan and Laurel are strong physical competitors their moral high ground annoys the heck out of me. Not every player is going to do it they way you do. They literally look down their noses at folks who play the challenge in a way different from theirs. The game allows various kinds of strategic. Seriously, in business, politics, or war, folks need to bend a little else they will be cut.
Can't stand Bear.
Nany knows how to play the media game. Does anyone think she can win? From someone who smokes and never works out I am amazed at how well she does. She partners well, but on her own how far has she really gone.
SO glad Cara Maria is not wearing hair extensions.
Sharing her side of the story. Ahead of elimination on the Wednesday, September 4, episode of The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2, host TJ Lavin announced that Faith Stowers decided to leave the show — with no explanation or footage revealing why she left.
However, in a new interview with Us Weekly, the reality star opens up about what happened and her decision to leave Thailand. The night before her exit, cameras caught her getting into an argument with Stephen Bear and Kyle Christie after she was woken up in the middle of the night by them yelling loudly across her room.
“A lot of the challengers caught a bacterial infection in our lungs so we were coughing constantly. I almost vomited from coughing so much,” Stowers, 30, tells Us exclusively, adding that she was given medication she could not drink on which also made her very drowsy. “I’ve been through noisy, sleepless nights. This isn’t my first Challenge. However, this is the first Challenge I’ve been involved in that we were sick. It was very difficult for a lot of us.”
However, she “didn’t want to come off aggressive” so just asked the guys to be quiet. “Bear gave me this disgusted look, like, ‘Who are you?’ No one on the shows who have been on this show for years and earned their right to be cocky have ever looked at me like that,” she continued. “I was so irritated and I heard them say ‘F–k off.’”
With that, the Vanderpump Rules alum decided she’d get them back by getting a pot and pan and banging them together twice above Bear’s head, just after he went to sleep. Afterward, she got in bed but Bear woke her up shortly after to ask why she did that. During their discussion in the hallway, “it went from trying him to explain himself to being an asshole,” she says. “We started to exchange words back.”
Others in the house were laughing during their argument and soon, it wrapped up and she went to bed. Security remained in the house to ensure that nothing happened and soon after, the Ex on the Beach alum was called out of bed for an interview about what happened. So, she went to the confessional room; when she left, Christie and Laurel Stuckey were waiting.
Christie, 27, continued to ask her why she woke him up. “I was repeating myself calmly and he got really upset. I thought that Laurel, as a woman, would defuse it, but she didn’t,” Stowers continues. “I kept saying, ‘It’s not a big deal, why are you so angry?’ I was willing to let it go and would laugh with Bear about it the next day but Kyle escalated it.”
Eventually, Christie stood up and walked toward Stowers.
“Where I’m from, that’s aggressive,” she shares, adding that Theo Campbell and Bear had also come into the room and joined the conversation, which made her uncomfortable. Security remained in the room during the conversation.
“It was really freaking me out,” she said. “Why are people treating me like I’m a terrible person? It just really made me uncomfortable because I don’t fight.”
Eventually, Leroy Garrett convinced everyone to go to bed.
“I was so shaken up. As I went into the room, Kyle was yelling and called me a whore or something. I responded with, ‘Oh, your momma,’ because I didn’t know what else to say,” Stowers adds. “I started thinking and decided, I can’t do the show like this. I felt hurt and felt like I shouldn’t be involved in this situation.”
With that, she woke up the next day and told everyone she was leaving. Bear apologized and Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio brought in Christie to do the same; many even begged her to stay.
“I was in the military for seven years, I’m not gonna leave because I couldn’t get sleep,” she reiterates. “I can handle that. It’s just when people are disrespectful when they don’t need to be.”
Sarah Rice, who helped Johnny win his last challenge win, is getting divorced. She has been with her husband for 10 years, married for the past 4 of them. She recently completed her masters degree in marriage and family therapy. Irony there and suffered a miscarriage in 2018. She is 33.
I would luv to see her do a couple of more of the challenges.
