For this week’s Man Crush, I originally had someone else in mind but completely scrapped him after watching one of my guiltiest pleasures on MTV. No, it’s not “Teen Mom” or another teenage pregnancy show that glamorizes it- babies having babies. I refuse to give those shows any time. Not that “The Challenge: Rivals” is high-brow Shakespearean entertainment. In fact, it’s probably as trashy as any of those aforementioned shows, with all the fights, drinking and ridiculous drama. That being said, at least there are hot men to gawk at on a weekly basis.
Without fail, there are always a few sexy beasts on these challenges. And thankfully, some of my favorites continually sign up to compete and make fools of themselves for some cash money. A few of them even get hotter and buffer with age. So, after watching last night’s premiere of “The Challenge: Rivals“, I felt inspired to give five of them a sexy shout out. In essence, you’re getting five Man Crushes this week.
On a side note, this season looks phenomenal. Instead of people making alliances to get rid of their enemies, people are paired up with their rival. Whether it was a feud that started on their original Real World season, on another challenge or in their personal lives, rivals must now work with each other to win $300,000. Last night’s premiere already saw someone leave after landing a punch on another person. Surprisingly, it wasn’t their teammate, but someone else. Looks like someone has a new partner for “The Challenge: Rivals Part 2“. Without further ado, I bring you my favorite guys from this season.
First Season: RW: Paris
Previous Challenges: (7) The Inferno, The Inferno II, The Duel, The Inferno III, The Gauntlet 3, The Duel 2, Rivals
There was actually a time when I took a break from the “Real World” drama and missed a few seasons. One of them being, “Real World: Paris”. Definitely my loss since it gave us extremely volatile CT Tamurello. Thankfully, due to these challenges, I was able to catch him the second, third, fourth etc… time around. He may be a douche sometimes and takes these challenges way too seriously, but he is one beefy side of sexy meat. WOOF.
First Season: RW: Key West
Previous Challenges: (7) The Duel, The Inferno III, The Gauntlet III, The Island (Win), The Ruins (Win), Cutthroat, Rivals
His nickname is Johnny Bananas and probably one of the most feared contestants on these challenges. He’s another one I never saw in his initial Real World season. There’s just something about his short stature and those tattoos that draws me to him. Plus, he’s got one sexy east coast accent.
First Season: RW: Austin
Previous Challenges: (5) Fresh Meat, The Duel (Win), The Ruins, Fresh Meat II, Rivals
Wes always seems to be on the opposite side of the popular “cool” alliance. He’s always an underdog and targeted for early elimination. No, it’s not because he’s a ginger but because he’s a strong competitor and involved in a lot of romantic drama. You think The Bachelor franchise is incestuous, you should see these MTV alums’ private lives. Hell, if I was a girl on these shows, I definitely would hook up with Wes. He looks like that dumb jock in high school that everyone wanted. Plus, I love me a hot gingy every once in a while.
First Season: RW: Washington, D.C.
Previous Challenges: (2) Cutthroat, Rivals
When he’s not super trashed, he’s not that bad of guy, but when he is… Ty is one loose cannon. He can start fights and be verbally abusive. It’s usually part of his game. Not that I condone it, but he’s got one sexy bod and loves to show it off as evident in the obvious iPhone pic below.
First Season: Fresh Meat
Previous Challenges: (8) The Duel, The Inferno III (Win), The Gauntlet 3,
The Island (Win), The Ruins (Win), Fresh Meat II, Rivals
Kenny has the most wins from anyone in this season. He usually finds a way to lure all the ladies to his side. Can you blame them, this guy is one hot Italian stallion. His partner this season is that sexy gingy Wes. Now that is one man sandwich, I’d like to take a bit out of. Yummers.
Are you watching this season’s competition? I personally love the rivals’ twist. It should make for a very interesting dynamic. Don’t forget to cast your vote in my poll below. PS, did you like my group Man Crush this week or would you prefer single ones instead? I’d love to hear your feedback.
