Ep. 51: Tony Time

June 21, 2018 @ 1:10 am

Derrick Kosinski & Scott Yager are joined by Tony Raines.

Tony Raines (@T_Raines33) was our first ever guest on #ChallengeMania in December. Since then he turned on Bananas, eliminating him from #Vendettas and beginning a changing of the guard throughout the franchise, made the final on that show and won #ChampsVsStars with CT. Safe to say he had a lot to discuss and Derrick (@DerrickMTV) and Scott (@SHOTOFYAGER) had a lot to catch up with him on.

Who better to join Derrick (@DerrickMTV) & Scott (@SHOTOFYAGER) for the 50TH EPISODE of #ChallengeMania than one of our favorite guests; Cara Maria (@CaraMariaMTV)?! 

Since her last appearance on the podcast, Cara WON Vendettas, got involved in the most talked about about #Challenge relationship aka #PaulieGate and was recently announced as being part of the #Challenge32 cast, on a team with another podcast favorite, MARIE RODA! (@MarieTBD)

Cara, an open book as always, opens up about Vendettas, her time at the reunion, not getting to truly enjoy her win, getting to the final and the moves she had to make, voting in Leroy, alliances she had during the season, her bond with Kyle, becoming the first ever solo champion and what she has to say to ANYONE who thinks she didn't deserve to win!

We dive right into the Paulie stuff and find out her side of the story, the correct timeline for when everything went down compared to when we all found out, and hear what she has to say about the reaction she has gotten since it's become public.

All of that and a whole lot more! Find out what she thinks of her Final Reckoning partner and whether she knows her birthday, what her and Kailah have in common and more of YOUR QUESTIONS on another jam-packed episode of CHALLENGE MANIA!

We are coming to ORLANDO, FLORIDA with Cara Maria and more on June 30th for Challenge Mania Live AT the Challenge Throwdown event. You can get tickets at www.ChallengeMania.Live

Ep. 45: Rogan O’Connor

May 23, 2018 @ 1:10 am

Derrick Kosinski & Scott Yager are joined by Rogan O'Connor.

Rogan O'Connor may have been the first person to leave #TheChallengeVendettas. He may have come up short on the race the cast took part in the first day. He may have never set foot in the #Challenge house itself, but trust us...none of that matters.

Rogan joins Derrick (@DerrickMTV) and Scott (@SHOTOFYAGER) to reminisce about the time he spent with Derrick in Spain, how the two know each other, share some fun stories, his ten year relationship with Joss, his history with Kyle, his feelings on Cara Maria, his connection to a certain Bad Girls Club / Ex on the Beach star and much more!

Rogan may spend more time on this episode of #ChallengeMania than he did on his entire season of #TheChallenge but that is a good thing because he is one hell of a guest!
