MTV Star Derrick Kosinski (@DerrickMTV) & actor / comedian Scott Yager (@SHOTOFYAGER) dive head first into the MTV Challenge universe, interviewing past, present and future contestants, breaking down Challenge news and episodes, and laying down new challenges to anyone and everyone.
Ep. 101: Marlon Williams
Derrick Kosinski & Scott Yager are joined by Marlon Williams. Marlon Williams (@BlackZeusFit) made his debut on Real World Portland and only competed on one season of The Challenge on Rivals II, where he and Jordan made the final. He had an illustrious college football career at Texas Tech and recently began body building and personal training under the name Black Zeus. More than that, he wants back on The Challenge. He is the total package. He's got looks, size, athletic ability, personality and a chip on his shoulder. He drops by the show to tell Derrick (@DerrickMTV) and Scott (@SHOTOFYAGER) why Rivals II was his last season, who he has his sights set on now, whether he follows the show, how he would up on The Real World, how he became "Black Zeus" and much more!

Ep. 99: Hunter's Reckoning
Derrick Kosinski & Scott Yager are once again joined by Final Reckoning Champion HUNTER BARFIELD. Hunter Barfield (@HBarfield13) is a Challenge Champion. It's hard to remember that because even though he won The Final Reckoning season of The Challenge, he went home empty handed, thanks to a decision by his partner, Ashley Mitchell. Hunter joins Derrick (@DerrickMTV) and Scott (@SHOTOFYAGER) to discuss this entire process, coping with the loss of all that money, whether he has regrets, how he feels about Ashley today, what she said about him at the reunion and MORE!
