WOW @ the challenge

the challenge hasnt made me EXCITED like that since... champs vs stars 1 alol. The mixing of the champs and stars is such a great addition it kinda feels like oldschool survivor premerge where the minority on a tribe know they are 100% fucked yet it WORKS with the possibility of the power play.
the small twists seem like nothing yet add a decent amount of complexity (that based on the previews might be taken advantage of) like a team that has the numbers can send someone to throw elimination and then use the save on them or the team that is outnumbered can throw the challenge ilm style and have the paymaster (mvp + power play) used to save them
not to mention the STARS are delivering. Kailah embarassing herself at every opportunity < 3 Brooke Selita and Lil Mama being the porsche danielle kalia of their team < 3 THE LOUISE EXPERIENCE < 3 The cheesy louise wes scenes work SO WELL in a storytelling sense like wow the storytelling team STEPPED UP even tho all they have to work with outside of main scenes are hotel restaurant shots LOL.
Louise is honestly approaching top tier reality tv contestant. The LIMES were not a fluke and she truly is a queen. Brooke however uttered my fave quote about kailah when she went "its scary to know you have to work with someone who wants your DEMISE" or something super dramatic like that. I feel like that line was major foreshadowing. Lil mama is also so glam and whenever JOZEA opens his mouth i find myself laughing hysterically "IF HE DOESNT GET DQD IM WALKING OFF RIGHT NOW" LOL.
tl;dr this season is super refreshing almost solely because of the stars, in particular louise with a fun dose of other stars carrying the show on their backs.
ALSO The pacing is working WONDERS. if this was a normal season they would have spread these first two eliminations out over the course of 5 episodes and RUINED EVERYTHING.
