All I really remember from the challenges is them playing some stupid game of bum darts in the pool.
I actually liked the challenges. yes some were retarded but that would atleast get the guys working and thinking as a team. Now the show has turned into "watch group A train, interviews, watch group B train, interviews, people at the house lounging around and getting on each others nerves, someone snaps and gets made at someone else, weigh-ins, fight" Almost EVERY show!
They just need to get original ideas for the challenges. I remember an early one where they had guys carrying large cases of water up flights of stairs (I think Forrest won that one). Stupid yes, but it gave us people to cheer for, we got to see who had some heart and desire to be there.
