The Challenge Battle Of The Exes Finale “I Will Always Love You”

After last week’s weak finale lead-in, I’ve got to say, tonight’s finale was actually a pretty big nail biter. Leads were won and lost, teams came from behind, but who came away with the big money? You’ll have to hit the jump to find out! Continue reading The Challenge Battle Of The Exes Finale “I Will Always Love You”

The Challenge Battle Of The Exes Episode 9 “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?”

Tonight’s episode of The Challenge Battle Of The Exes came chock full of padding. If you’re a fan of beautiful glacial settings and drunken conversations about how well the partners get along, then this episode will be perfect for you. If you’re more a fan of actual competition and drama, you can skip most of the middle of this episode. But, either way, you should hit the jump and read the post! Continue reading The Challenge Battle Of The Exes Episode 9 “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?”

The Challenge Battle Of The Exes Episode 8 “On The Wings Of Love”

When it comes to great Challenge episodes they tend to have a few of the following: a drunken fight, random hookups, epic challenges and surprise wins or losses. Tonight’s episode continued directly from last week’s which, as you remember, featured Ty almost going home after a joke on his partner Emily’s part went awry. All that drama pushed the decision of who would get sent into the Dome with Emily and Ty to the beginning of this week cliffhanger-style. Wanna find out who got sent in, what trends the episode hit and who will definitely be going into the finale? You know the drill.

The Challenge Battle Of The Exes Episode 7 “Love & Marriage”

Wow, you guys. Just, wow. Tonight’s episode of The Challenge Battle Of The Exes was kind of mindblowing. There was an incident–one that commercials for the episode said was too crazy to show–that actually was so bad that I had to look away from the TV. I was cringing, crawling in my skin. I also found myself siding with someone who I have had a history of completely disliking. For the record, the episode also had a pretty good challenge and some relationship drama both good and bad. You know you want to know what happened, so just hit the jump! Continue reading The Challenge Battle Of The Exes Episode 7 “Love & Marriage”

The Challenge Battle Of The Exes Episode 6 “Tainted Love”

Oh, The Challenge Battle of the Exes, you keep toying with my emotions! Not only did this episode include a great deal of tense challenges, but it also put me on a rollercoaster when it came to relationships as one blossomed (not the right term for it, but we’ll get there) and another ran off the rails. There was also, as always, the possibility of a team or two overthrowing the status quo, but does it happen? You’ll have to read on to see. Continue reading The Challenge Battle Of The Exes Episode 6 “Tainted Love”

The Challenge Battle Of The Exes Episode 5 “Crazy In Love”

I realized something while watching tonight’s episode of The Challenge: Battle Of The Exes: there are a lot of good teams left. If I had to pick a weak link it would be down to Paula and Dunbar and Aneesa and Rachel. I think they might do well in a few challenges here and there, but they should be pretty easy to either knock off or keep around for the finale so you can win over them. Aside from them, though, you’ve got Abe and Cara Maria, CT and Diem, Mark and Robin, Johnny and Camila and Ty and Emily who are all viable contenders in this thing. Any of them could make it and any of them would be smart people to send into the Dome if the Power Couple actually gets smart. Do they get smart this episode? You’ll just have to read on and see. Continue reading The Challenge Battle Of The Exes Episode 5 “Crazy In Love”

The Challenge Battle Of The Exes Episode 4 “Love The Way You Lie”

Tonight’s episode of The Challenge Battle Of The Exes wasn’t entirely exciting. There was some drama that took center stage, but the challenge itself seemed pretty even, no one really got hurt and the Dome was a repeat for reasons that will make sense when we get there. On the plus side, only one team got sent home instead of two like last episode. For those keeping score there have been four episodes of this season so far (including this one) and 10 people have been sent home. With that in mind, check out the full post after the jump. Continue reading The Challenge Battle Of The Exes Episode 4 “Love The Way You Lie”

The Challenge Battles Of The Exes Episode 3 “Where Did Our Love Go?”

You guys, if The Challenge: Battle Of The Exes keeps up this pace of sending more than one couple home per episode, it’s going to be over in a month. Much like last week’s episode, this one featured a team getting sent home, though not for nearly as nefarious reasons this time. Of course, there was also the team that got sent home in the Dome and an injury requiring stitches. Heck this one even had Abe getting misty! Hit the jump to find out exactly what happened. Continue reading The Challenge Battles Of The Exes Episode 3 “Where Did Our Love Go?”

The Challenge Battle Of The Exes Episode 2 “What’s Love Got To Do With It”

Well tonight’s episode of The Challenge certainly had a few surprises I didn’t see coming. The team that won the challenge was  a surprise. Not just one team, but two got sent home. One contestant displayed some deplorable behavior that would make the Jersey Shore guys cringe. A fight broke out. And, The Dome sent one of the more imposing teams home. To get the full report, hit the jump! Continue reading The Challenge Battle Of The Exes Episode 2 “What’s Love Got To Do With It”

The Challenge Battles Of The Exes Episode 1 “Love Is A Battlefield”

I know I stalled out towards the end of the previous season of Real World, but that had zero effect on my enthusiasm for the latest season of The Challenge (which, since Mark is back, should go back to the old name: Real World/Road Rules Challenge). If anything, I was even more excited, as you might have seen when I talked about the trailer for this season a few weeks back. As I mentioned in that previous post, the deal is pretty simple this time around: the couples this time around were romantically linked in previous seasons both on and off camera. What we didn’t know back then and learned very early in the episode from returning host TJ Lavin is that the loser of every basic challenge will automatically be going into The Dome. Who will go against them? Glad you asked. The couple that wins the challenge is dubbed the Power Couple and they get to choose who goes in against the losers. Interesting. I’ll get to why I like this set up at the very end. Let’s get into the episode itself. Hit the jump if you’re interested.
