Is it simply me, or is The Problem: All Stars steamrolling the primary sequence at this level?
The Challenge: All Stars Season 1 Episode 3 continued with one other depraved day by day elimination harking back to the previous, shifting alliances, and a wild elimination that threatened to shake up the home.
A part of this spin-off’s attract is that the gamers have loads of historical past, and a few of it isn’t good.
Ruthie and Aneesa’s argument got here out of the left-field, however the modifying allowed viewers at residence to recall how their relationship turned so fraught.
Ruthie’s drawback is that Aneesa has remained a agency fixture on the common sequence since they’d their massive bust-up all these years in the past, which implies Aneesa has constructed extra connections.
It is arduous to rule Ruthie out at this stage, however one thing tells me the home will need to put her into elimination with Aneesa.
If it is a bodily competitors, I do not like Ruthie’s possibilities, however Ruthie might emerge with the win if it is trivia or a puzzle.
The enjoyable and video games are over and these gamers on the level by which they’re sizing up the competitors and questioning get the higher hand on the politics of the sport.
Aneesa, based mostly on her connections alone, will go far. However it’s going to all come right down to who’s keen to chop who free first.
We already witnessed finest buddies Trishelle and Katie ending their decades-long friendship on The Problem: All Stars Season 1 Episode 2, so we all know that loyalty solely goes to this point in the home.
The problem plaguing Ruthie is that she hit out at Aneesa in entrance of the opposite gamers. It is good that Jonna wished to consolation her, however I do not like Ruthie’s possibilities for the subsequent couple of eliminations.
This brings me to Kendall. Kendall went from the excessive of profitable the elimination in opposition to Trishelle to main a crew that gained the day by day.
She was cocky in regards to the Life Saver energy and making all the males sweat will come again to chunk her. There have been many names being floated round the home, and the subsequent time there is a nomination, Kendal’s identify will in all probability be excessive on that listing.
Jemmye made an ideal level when she stated that Kendall did not know play the sport. Kendall has been out of it for too lengthy and appears to overlook that individuals bear in mind your each transfer to make use of it in opposition to you at one level.
It is all a part of the enjoyable, however Beth, Straightforward, Mark, and Derrick, amongst others felt like she was performing drunk on energy, and that can come again to hang-out her earlier than lengthy.
I’ve at all times appreciated The Problem as a result of the gamers take massive dangers, so I used to be stunned that Kendall did not use the ability after wheeling and coping with everybody in the home whereas drunk.
Nehemiah being thrown in was not stunning. His crew misplaced the day by day, and he was the chief. Selecting to be a frontrunner on this sport is a double-edged sword that may get you despatched packing out of the home.
What stunned me probably the most in regards to the loss was the best way Teck acted. Teck likes a superb snort, however I do not know what could be going by means of his thoughts to piss off the particular person nominated.
It made the nomination ceremony a wash as a result of it was simpler for Nehemiah to marketing campaign for everybody to place Teck up in opposition to him.
From a bodily standpoint, Nehemiah ought to theoretically win a bodily elimination, however the elimination was extra about balancing your weight nicely to punch out the colours on the fence.
It was a real shock that Nehemiah gained as a result of it appeared like Teck was dominating the entire thing. Then once more, the editors of the present are artful. They need the viewers to be sitting with bated breaths till the winner is revealed.
Nehemiah returning to the home will not trigger a lot upset, however his relationship with Jemmye would possibly. Jemmye was vocal about aligning herself with the suitable folks to make it far, and Nehemiah is a good sufficient competitor.
If folks begin to see them as a pair, they may in all probability be focused earlier than lengthy. The totally different sides of the home are beginning to understand who their targets are, and that is a part of the fantastic thing about the best way The Problem is constructed.
The ice competitors was the right throwback to the sequence’s previous days, and it looks as if the sequence will proceed to carry nostalgia in future weeks.
“I’ve Bought the Energy” was strong. It might be good if the episodes have been somewhat longer, however I suppose the producers suppose viewers need fast-paced motion to maintain them watching.
What did you consider Teck’s elimination? Do you suppose he ought to have stayed quiet to steer clear of the battleground?
What do you suppose Ruthie will do now that Teck is gone? Will she be capable to play good with Aneesa?
Hit the feedback.
