Ep. 44: Aneesa Ferreira Returns!

May 20, 2018 @ 9:31 pm

Derrick Kosinski & Scott Yager are joined by Aneesa Ferreira.

The last time Aneesa (@AneesaMTV) was on #ChallengeMania, it was along with Michelle Waterson, to discuss their cagefight elimination on the last season of #ChampsVsStars

This time around, Aneesa is appearing solo, and it gives Derrick (@DerrickMTV) and Scott (@SHOTOFYAGER) a chance to go back in time and dive into Aneesa's long and storied #Challenge career. She shares thoughts on her favorite eliminations, her Real World casting story, current relationship with Veronica and much more!

Unfortunately Aneesa is no longer competing on this season of Champs Vs Stars due to an injury she sustained after going head to head with CT during a daily challenge. The guys get the scoop about that, how she feels about the injury, the challenge it took place during and whether it affects her plans to compete in the future at all.

Ep. 43: Louise Hazel

May 16, 2018 @ 11:22 pm

Derrick Kosinski & Scott Yager are joined by Louise Hazel.

Former Olympian Louise Hazel (@LouiseHazel) is on her SECOND season of #TheChallenge #ChampsVsStars, having also competed on the debut season of the spinoff, #ChampsVsPros

She has been one of, if not the most generally accepted celebrity/athlete to cross over into the realm of the Challenge and fans are already salivating at the thought of her considering a full season of the show.

Louise joins Derrick (@DerrickMTV) and Scott (@SHOTOFYAGER) to address whether that is something she might entertain down the line, losing a foot race to Wes on national television, her fellow stars cast, running this current season an why she has succeeded thus far, how The Challenge compares to the Olympics, her new podcast and much more!
