    What is going on? I feel like it's five years ago with CT and Diem.

    Also, non-obnoxious CT is pretty cool.

    I think that was Davis and Tyrie from Denver. At least that's what I'm thinking of, might not be the same fight. There are many to choose from. :)

    He was pretty cool with Adam last season too. Maybe his brothers death (was it his brother?) gave him a different perspective on life.

    Yeah. His brother was murdered.

    He had so much anger. Maybe he's just growing up. Or drinking less. Whatever-he and Diem were always a good couple.

    Yeah, that does sound right.. and looking at the cast picture of them on wikipedia, it makes me even more sure that's what I was thinking about. Wow, that is older than I thought!

    The final challenge in Iceland is crazy! Sleeping outside in below zero temps, jumping into almost frozen water. Wow.

    I know! It has got to be tough to keep topping themselves. I thought that last one where they had to stay awake all night balancing on a rock was a toughie.

    It is hard to appreciate just how it would feel to jump in that water.

    She does nothing for me. Looks-wise I've never understood what CT sees in her, but I guess she's just not my type.

    Is it over? I forgot to watch last night, and can't remember if it's in two parts or not. I generally watch those all at once.

    No, it's not over. Last night was part 1 of the final challenge. I assume 1 more episode, plus the reunion show, plus The ***** They Didn't Show.

    Stupid weird !@$ MTV sometimes starting a show in progress, or cutting out a section of it or something.. I recorded an ep early this morning, and I checked it.. The 'content' of the show was somewhere around 55 minutes. I then rechecked, and the beginning was something I've seen before, something like "MTV is running a little late, we're starting the show in progress".. yet it actually wasn't in progress, so I bet they cut something out later. I'm recording another rerun tomorrow morning, hopefully that one will be complete.

    Yeah this is a rant, but MTV treats viewers so badly.

    Great finale. What a nail biter! Can't say I'm happy with the winner, but oh well. All three teams were consistently good throughout the season, so I think they all were deserving.

    Johnny and Camila, CT and Diem finished second despite leading most the way. CT ran out of gas at the end.

    Eh. I was pulling for CT and Diem.

    And I can't believe I just said that.

    I was pulling for them too, and I also can't believe it. :)

    If you told me a couple years ago,when he was punching Adam, that I'd ever be pulling for CT, I would have told you you were nuts. I thought at the time that MTV shouldn't even allow him back on the show.

    But I was totally pulling for him and Diem. Shame to see them come in second to those two.

    I felt the same way but it seems CT has grown up alot. I wonder what altitude they were at? I hiked in Tahoe last year and at about 7500 feet it hit me, my wife was fine but I had no stamina and had to rest every 25-50 feet.

    We lived at 10k feet for three years. It's rough. Even my brothers, who are in great shape, struggle for the first day or so.

    No, Mark and Robin went home just before the final challenge.
