It has been almost two full months since we have had any of the four major sports. We had some UFC this past weekend, but that just doesn’t make it move like the rest of them. It seems like MLB might be getting close, but the NBA and NHL seem destined for unfinished seasons. Without sports, everyone has had to find something to occupy their time and peak their interests. Well lucky for you, I have the three shows that will do just that for you.
I started watching The Challenge about 5 years ago and let me tell you…it is absolutely fucking electric! It has everything you want as a sports fan. It has competitions, player drama, and it is overall extremely entertaining.
I know, I know, you’re thinking that it’s just a stupid ass MTV show, but you could not be more wrong. It is probably the most entertaining of the reality game shows and it has characters that return every season so you always have someone to root for. Let me introduce you to some of the players still left…
If you don’t know Johnny Bananas, you should look him up on YouTube and familiarize yoursef real fucking quick. He is the winningest person in Challenge history while also being one of the most entertaining people on the show.
In short, he is an antagonizing asshole who stirs all types of shit up in the house. He is the best. He knows it, and everyone else knows it. I root for him every season and if you know me, then you know why.
Wes is one of the best strategists in the history of the Challenge. He is conniving and manipulative as fuck and most of the time, he is running the game behind the scenes. He is usually who I root for if Bananas goes home, but at this point, his reputation preceeds him and he is always a target.

Those are just 3 members of the always entertaining cast of the Challenge. Give it a shot, you will not regret it!
If you don’t know what Survivor is at this point, I don’t know what the fuck to tell you. Survivor was essentially the start of reality television as we know it.
20 years ago Jeff Probst took 16 random ass people and put them on a tropical island to battle for a prize of 1 Million Dollars. 40 seasons later he is still going strong, and he may be running his best season yet.
Season 40 of Survior is titled Winners at War, which is exactly how it sounds. He has taken 20 past winners and put them on and island to battle for a ridiculous prize of 2 Million Dollars. 2! MILLION! DOLLARS! It is the biggest prize in the history of reality television. If that doesn’t get the competitive juices going, then maybe some of the players will.
Boston Rob is probably the biggest star in Survivor history. He is one of the best players the show has ever seen and that is why he has been on the show 5 different times. He also famously met his wife Amber on Survivor: All-Stars and proposed live at the season finale. Rob has his dad bod in full effect this season, but he can still run with the young bucks.
Sandra is the only two time winner of Survivor and she is back looking to win for her third time and essentially make her record untouchable.
I absolutely fucking hate her though. She is great at the game, but I hate her. She lies and manipulates everyone so well that no one ever takes their shots at her. Next thing you know, she’s lamping at Final Tribal and getting all the fucking votes.
Parvati has been one of the most popular characters in every single one of her seasons. That probably has to do with the fact that she is attractive and she uses the shit out of that to get her way. She is always flirting and teasing the guys and it always fucking works because most of the guys on this show are total fucking schmucks. She is like Medusa and just eventually picks off the guys one by one on her way to a Final Tribal Council.
This Survivor is fucking loaded with talent and entertainment and it is absolutely must watch!
The Last Dance
The Last Dance is a documentary that follows the 1997-1998 Chicago Bulls in their final season together. It also goes back on the history of the dynasty and how everyone found their places on this team.
The content out of this doc is one of the best sports stories I have ever seen. The highlights, the music, the behind the scenes tapes, and of course, the interviews.
MJ is telling all and he gets extremely emotional at times and it is just so fucking raw! A lot of the shit covered is comming knowledge for a basketball fan, but if you are a casual fan, take the time to watch this and you will know exactly why Jordan is the undisputed GOAT!
I can’t go in to too much detail without giving some of the content away, but this really gives a ton of insight on how the mind of a champion works. It is must watch TV and you will absolutely not be disappointed.
You’re welcome everyone for occupying a few hours of your life during this extremely complicated and boring time of your lives.
