    I don't think Eric needs the reason that he didn't want to compete against his "girlfriend". Eric really doesn't need an excuse. I personally think it goes back to endurance and being physically fit. Eric does well in the power part of a challenge and in the social part of the game but when it comes to balance, agility and endurance he has a track record of quitting or not physically being able to complete that part of the challenge. It would have looked better if instead of arguing with Camilla if he said I need a break to get some air and than try one more time and then "appear" physically wiped out than to throw a hissy fit and quit like he did.

    On Eric's behalf, I think he was trying to say he just needed a few seconds to catch his breath so he could continue. Camilla was so impatient and he got frustrated with her berating him so he quit partially to deny her the prize.

    Do I think Easy could have competed as well as some of the others? No. He still needs to lose some weight and gain some endurance to be competitive in these challenges. But I really think his giving up here wasn't so much as an inability to complete the challenge as it was to maybe help his girlfriend and to spite Camilla

    I am glad someone else sees that Big Easy needs to work on his athletic ability and possibly his mental endurance. He might be spoiled somewhat as I remember from Fresh Meat I that everyone liked him because he was good at partying and got along with everyone. In fact because of his size he was used to intimidate opponents in Gauntlet 3. Basically he got a free ride through to the finale. Still the show takes at least 4 to 6 weeks to film and if he really wanted to he and his teammates could have put him on a cardio program to help improve his performance. I can't really put all the blame on him for his failure to perform after all his team mates saw him workout or not workout during the entire time he was there. I do wonder if during the finale if they had slowed down per Big Easy's request the entire team might have been able to stay together and win. After all they were delayed because of Big Easy's medical evacuation but were able to finish the dig for the finale prize before the other team but were disqualified cause Big Easy was not there.

    Alton you selfish little twerp. You are just as big a quitter as Big Easy. From now on you both will be known as "The Quitter Twins".


    PS: Frank is a total douche.

    Glad that Los Vegas won. I watched the after show and I do think Alton is all over the place. He also puts is on himself to take what people say in the heat of the moment and run with it. That being said Frank is just not a nice person. They have him on tape that he will do anything to bug Alton to get him to hit him and get disqualified. But I luv'ed the tape of the Dustin/Alton bromance.

    Re: The Challenge: Season 23

    Everyone just seems so unlikeable this season. All these new newbies are just so annoying and seem like horrible people, especially Frank. Can't stand him. I don't watch the Real World seasons anymore so maybe that's why I don't like any of them.

    I do wonder so will end up winning. I think some teams have strong individuals but I don't think there is one all-around great team.

    Paula and Evan are doing a bit of a review of the episodes in a segment calling The Screening Room. I like their observations on Big Easy, Alton and Frank and the almost fight between Zach and Alton at the Arena.

    Evan said something interesting about Frank and Zack's behavior toward Alton. The know they can get away with it for now because they are no consequences for it in the world of the competition. If Zach or Frank got into any other guy's face in the real world they properly have gotten a punch to the face and beaten up.

    Frank sucks. He was the worse cast members on what I consider the worst cast ever so I guess that would make him the worst. He's a complete douche bag. He was a mental case during the season and needed extensive therapy.

    Jemmeye and Knight are morons. Why they wouldn't throw San Diego in is beyond me. They will turn on them next and send them in.

    It shows how scared that Geico steroids Zach and drama queen Frank are. Also, these Insane Games were lame. On a side not, I wonder if Dunbar will be back to the Challenge in the future or if he will continue in porn.
