'The Challenge: Double Agents' Ep. 13 Recap & Power Rankings - We Got Ourselves A True Power Team

*Spoilers Obviously Ahead. Again, this is your warning* 

We're going to keep these blogs going. If we can't have No Quitters (RIPIP, send all complaints on Twitter) we're going to have the blog damnit. The Challenge is too damn good of a show to not be talked about. Each Thursday I'll drop one of these recaps and power rankings so we all can argue about America's fifth sport. Going forward - sorry last night was a bit too hectic - Eddie and myself will bring you The Challenge Aftershow on Clubhouse. Download the app and follow barstoolsports and barstoolreags there. 

They made this a 60 minute episode because it sucked right? 

We got a full on problem. The show is supposed to be about backstabbing, drinking, partying and CT running people over. It lacks A LOT of that and I blame Big Brother. Big Brother sucks - ask Devin. If you have to cut an episode to 60 minutes because of lack of content you're in serious trouble. They gotta figure something out going forward and just chalk this season up as a below average one. 

The gold skull twist should be decent, but it's missing

I don't know if it's the season or what, but the whole gold skull idea stinks out loud. I like the concept of it. I like the idea that you have to go win and advance. But now we're seeing the game get twisted all because of it. I don't want this to continue. Use it once every 5 seasons or something like that. Again, I don't mind them exploring new ideas like it's the G League but they gotta figure something out. 

Fessy is a horny bastard

We're at least getting a decent villain out of this season. Fessy talking about Tori, who hasn't been on the show in like 2 months. Him hooking up with Gabby. Again, this is what we need. How are more people not hooking up? That's legit 50% of the show. That's how alliances work. Fessy hooking up with Gabby is smart because he's going to guarantee he lands in Rivals and Battle of the Exes. 

Not shockingly Nany cried about nothing, shockingly Nany won and it's annoying

Nany cried because all she does is lose eliminations. Uh yeah no shit Nany, you're not great at this  game. You're perfect for stirring shit up, hooking up with a rookie and then losing. That's what we want. Now you beat Gabby and cool, whatever. This season sucks. There are too many people on one alliance that are all happy. I hate it so much. Nany needs to lose right before the final to make it seem like a real season. 

Nany picking Fessy was the least shocking thing since Fessy hooked up with Gabby

Not a shock that Nany went with Fessy to start switching shit up. Now I know who we all are cheering against for the Final. We want Fessy and Nany to crash and burn. Aneesa goes with Kyle and Cory gets Big T. By my account, Cory has been partners with every single human to ever play the Challenge now. Wouldn't be shocked to see Aneesa and Kyle get tossed in since both have skulls, outside the alliance and are viewed as the layups.
