  1. This is a much better cast than the last one. Although, I was pretty surprised to see Leah and Casey. They couldn’t have been less athletic when I saw them last. Maybe they’ve gotten better? I guess we’ll have to see.

    Also, is that really Cohutta??? He looks so different with long hair.


  2. I have watched pretty much every season of the challenge and since the early 2000s real world/road rules but didn’t remember a lot of this cast lol.
