    Kim Glass, Shawn Johnson, Michelle Waterson and Terrell Owens should be good on the Pros side. Everybody else on that team is fodder.

    per wiki:

    Champs vs. Stars is an eight-week spin-off show hosted by WWE superstar and former challenge competitor, Mike Mizanin. The show will feature ten Challenge champs and finalists going head-to-head in challenge-style competitions with ten celebrity athletes and entertainers. Players will compete for the chance to earn their share of $150,000 to donate to their charity of choice.
    Format
    Each team will compete in numerous challenges followed by elimination rounds known as "The Arena". Each elimination will alternate between male and female designated elimination weeks. The winning of team of each challenge will name one player of the designated gender as the MVP of the team. The MVP will be safe from the Arena and will earn $5,000 for their charity. He or she will also have the power to choose their team's LVP to compete in the Arena. The losing team will then vote for their LVP to go into the Arena. The two players will battle it out in elimination. The winner returns to the game, while the loser is eliminated.
    Episode 1 - November 21, 2017

    Challenge: Tow Truck - Champs won

    Zach voted MVP - most valuable player he gets to choose the LVP - least valuable player, the next day Zach chooses Corey because he does not know him.

    Elimination: Target Practice - Corey vs Matt - Matt wins

    Comments:
    Zach is back, poor Jenna.

    Riff Raff volunteered to go into Elimination for the Stars, the next day Matt decided he wanted to volunteer ... don't people watch these challenges, Do Not Volunteer and if someone does Do Not Substitute for them. Think Riff Raff does not feel slighted? Bet he does.

    Johnny immediately starts his mind games with the Diva from the WWE ... wow is she pissed. His comments can be construed as sexual harassment. He best be careful in todays environment. Corey tries to make nice.

    Big Elephant in the House:
    Camila gets drunk, no camera when the incident happens, but Camila punches a PA (production assistant) in the face then takes off in a golf cart and forgets to unplug it so rips the plug out and drags it behind the cart, them crashes the cart, no injuries. Camila is kicked off the challenge. Wonder if the PA will sue her for the $450,000 Camila just won? That would be too funny if Camila lost that money in a law suit.

    Re: The Challenge: Champs vs. Stars

    Individually the Stars are powerhouse athletes, especially the Olympians and the professional sports ones and on a one to one basis could beat the Champs. Some of the other Stars are questionable. The one thing that trips up the Stars as it triped up the Pros on the previous season of this particular franchise is that the Champs play the game in a 24/7 arena and they know how to play an vote and that gets the Pros and Stars every time.

    I thought the former wwe diva overreacted with bananas. She started getting furious over a flavor of love comment.

    Then it got worst with the KY Jelly comment.

    She takes herself very seriously.

    To show how little she was used by the WWE, I didn't even notice she had been released by the company even though I follow wrestling.

    Kinda hard to notice anyone else when the Bella Twins are around. 'Sides I have heard the lifespan of a DIVA tends to be short around 5 years.

    She was a pretty terrible wrestler, I'm surprised she was there for that long.
