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. 112: Liz & Julia Nolan
Derrick Kosinski & Scott Yager are joined by The Nolan Twins, Liz & Julia. Liz (@_LizNolan) and Julia (@JuliaNolan_) Nolan competed on Big Brother Season 17 pretending to be one person for several weeks, tricking their fellow housemates and switching places in the diary room, where they would download each other on the particulars and specifics necessary to keep up the charade. They were eventually allowed to play the game separately and revealed the "Twin Twist" to the house after they passed the initial test. When it was all said and done, Julia came in 6th and Liz came in 2nd place on the season, coming just short of the $500,000 prize. War of the Worlds marked both of their debut on The Challenge. Liz went home in the first purge challenge, so her time was very limited. Julia however, stuck around for a few weeks with her partner CT. The twins join Derrick (@DerrickMTV) and Scott (@SHOTOFYAGER) for a super fun chat about competing on both shows together, what it's like having a twin in life and on TV, who they liked and didn't like on The Challenge, which Challenge Vet that one of them has a romantic past with and MUCH MORE!

BONUS EP: Big Brother 20's Brett Robinson
Derrick Kosinski & Scott Yager are joined by Big Brother 20's Brett Robinson. Now that The Challenge is bringing over cast-members from Big Brother, why not get ahead of the game and start interviewing standouts from that series before they're even legally allowed to jump ship. Scott (@SHOTOFYAGER) thinks Brett (@BB20Brett) was tailor-made for The Challenge and that he should be at the top of MTV's wishlist later this year. Brett joins Derrick (@DerrickMTV) and Scott to discuss how he got cast on the CBS show, where his game went wrong, why he'd be better suited for a Challenge house and more!

Ep. 111: Wes Wes Y'all!
Derrick Kosinski & Scott Yager are joined by Weston Bergmann. There is no sugar-coating it, Wes (@WestonBergmann) has been crushing War of the Worlds so far. He returns to Challenge Mania to tell Derrick (@DerrickMTV) and Scott (@SHOTOFYAGER) why his plan has been going so well, what alliances and vendettas he's developed along the way, whether he thinks this season marks a changing of the guard, why he'd never align with Bananas on a future season and a whole lot more!
