The Challenge: All Stars Season 1 Episode 2 Review: All That You Can’t Leave Behind

The Challenge: All Stars is shaping as much as be the perfect season in years.

The Challenge: All Stars Season 1 Episode 2 featured extra nostalgia than The Challenge: All Stars Season 1 Episode 1, and it is all a part of the enjoyable in bringing these legends again for one more shot on the money prize.

Then once more, not everybody seems to be on this for the cash. Some of them are all about rebuilding connections, whereas others are extra about attempting to proper the wrongs of the previous.

Trishelle’s apology for her actions in direction of Aneesa was lengthy overdue, and the ball was in Aneesa’s court docket whether or not to just accept it.

So lengthy had handed, nevertheless it did not excuse these actions. The flashbacks alone confirmed how the racially insensitive feedback affected Aneesa.

The apology actually appeared real, and it is good they had been in a position to squash their beef. If there’s one factor I’ve discovered from Aneesa all through her years on the sequence, she’s among the finest listeners.

The producers might have constructed up a feud to maintain viewers invested, nevertheless it was good they managed to air out their ideas in an grownup matter.

It’s only a disgrace that Trishelle turned on Katie so rapidly. Trishelle made her mattress when she landed herself within the elimination. That was no person’s fault however her personal.

Should Katie have returned after the nominations ceremony to inform her supposed BFF what went down? Probably, however these folks have much more on their minds than they did again within the day.

Trishelle appeared to be misdirecting her anger at going into elimination, and taking it out on Katie was merely unfair. You do not throw away a 20-year friendship over one thing so foolish.

Katie has modified drastically since her earlier days on the sequence, however I appreciated that she did not again down when Trishelle was on her again about not speaking to her following the nomination.

People develop aside in life. It’s not unusual, and whereas it sucks that this friendship has imploded, it is good that The Challenge: All Stars is highlighting one thing like that.

Kendall’s efficiency throughout the every day was undoubtedly regarding, however her demeanor fully modified when she was hurled into the elimination in opposition to Trishelle.

There was part of me that thought Kendall would self-evict as a result of she did not appear as into the method as among the others.

We have to keep in mind that these folks have constructed households within the years they have been off the display, so it isn’t as straightforward to show the entire emotions on your tasks off.

That being mentioned, Kendall carried out very effectively within the elimination. Trishelle appeared to be harboring a number of anger because of the occasions main as much as the large end, and I wrongfully counted Kendall out to win the competitors.

The artful enhancing additionally threw me. I stored anticipating Trishelle to emerge with the win, nevertheless it was satisfying to observe her flame out so rapidly as a result of her actions earlier within the episode.

That’s to not say I do not need her again in future seasons of this spinoff. Trishelle makes good TV, and her cellphone will in all probability be ringing off the hook ought to a second season get a proper order.

During a current trailer, there was a pivotal scene that confirmed what seemed to be a number of contestants quitting the competitors, main me to assume that Trishelle might be on her approach again.

The sequence likes to carry folks again, and if folks stop, it makes it a lot simpler. Trishelle strikes me because the Ashley of All Stars. Everyone will wish to get her out, however she’ll preserve coming again stronger than ever.

A trivia competitors this early into the season took me abruptly, nevertheless it was the right strategy to proceed throwing the nostalgia at viewers.

These little throwbacks are good for the older followers, however additionally they fill within the blanks for the individuals who solely caught the show in recent times.

If the sequence can proceed with this high quality degree, then there is a good likelihood it will likely be one in every of my favourite seasons, however I hope future episodes give among the different returning stars some screentime.

Aneesa being a co-winner throughout the every day was hardly shocking. She’s been killing it on the common sequence in current seasons, even when no person needs to run a closing along with her.

This season actually might be Aneesa’s to win, and it is all because of her persevering with on the primary sequence. The coaching by no means actually stopped for her, whereas among the returning gamers rapidly realized they’re out of their factor.

“All That You Can’t Leave Behind” was a strong follow-up to the sequence premiere. The music is one other sturdy level on this sequence. The soundtrack is crammed with bangers that throw you again.

What did you consider Trishelle’s elimination? Do you assume she’ll return?

Do you assume her argument with Katie was a tactic to get Katie thrown in in opposition to her?
