That was the best Fear Factor ever. I don’t watch American Idol, The Amazing Race, or The Apprentice, but god help me I can’t stay away from Survivor or the Real World/Road Rules Challenge. (Except I missed the Johnny Fairplay season of Survivor.) I can’t get enough of dopey obstacle courses, and the meat of tonight’s episode was an excellent fix for my habit.
Watching Twila literally drag Johnny Fairplay through the mud was hysterical. The interview with The Miz during that was funny, but I was thinking “you better be careful, you’ll have to back that trash-talking up when it’s your turn.” He then swam the friggin’ mud like a man possessed. He was exactly right in that he looked like Arnold from Predator; I was rolling from that interview.
Given all that I know about the Miz and Trishelle from the 17 billion challenges they’ve been on, I don’t see any way they don’t win this. Mike may be humanity’s most accomplished “dopey physical challenge” competitor, and I’m pretty sure there is nothing on god’s green earth Trishelle wouldn’t put in her mouth, so I think they’re a mortal lock to win the 150 large.
