Wednesday nights have been action-packed for Scottsdale fans of MTV’s The Challenge: Rivals. It is down to the final two episodes, culminating in the most difficult final challenge the show has ever created. While viewers are on the edges of their seats waiting to watch the final jungle and challenge face-offs, the reunion special has been taped and it is said to be crazy. Many of the cast members were in NYC last weekend for the taping, which lasted around seven hours. Luckily, fans can count on Vevmo forum moderator Molds13 and poster Meelz to break down all the best scoop. It is said that the Adam and Jenn showmance was a hot topic at the taping, and viewers are anxious to see if the truth comes out on this one.
Viewers watched this season as Adam King admitted he has harbored a crush on Jenn Grijalva for several years. The two started out friendly on The Challenge: Rivals this season, and it seemed to turn into more. Sadly, fans then watched as Adam thought things were moving to the next level, and Jenn talked trash about him to the girls. Adam has shared on Twitter and his blog that watching the episode where Jenn called him “creepy” and denied anything intimate happened was very tough to watch. She continued to spend time in close quarters with him after her comments, and it seems he left the show thinking they were still on good terms. Having watched the shows since then, however, has left both Adam and fans with many questions.
The reunion show airs the footage again where Jenn told the other gals she thought he was creepy, and Adam is sad as he watches it on stage. She tells everyone that they never had sex, that they only ever made out, and it was only on the show. Apparently many of the other cast mates are shaking their heads as she says this, Tyler and CT in particular. Jenn’s denials go on for some time, until Adam pipes up and mentions a time on the bus during the challenge, which apparently Tyler can confirm. The others on stage are shocked about this one, and Jenn of course denies it was anything more than a lap dance.
Vevmo poster Molds13 says that things get very heated now, with Adam and Jenn yelling at one another. Then Adam makes reference to an interlude between the two of them at the Miami airport, and it is said you could hear a pin drop in the room after the Springer-esque “ooohhhhh” in the audience. It sounds like Jenn’s sole reply is “You’re a waste of my time, don’t ever look or talk to me again.” While Jenn is said to have taken back the cruel comments she had made during the show, after Adam brings up the Miami incident she says maybe she did mean them after all.
It sounds as if Adam is pretty distraught over how this all played out, both during the show and at the reunion taping. While he may feel hurt and embarrassed, it seems that the other cast mates and fans are solidly on his side. Jenn has hardly been a prude during the previous shows, so why she was so set on denying and hiding what happened with Adam is quite the mystery. Jenn is currently saying that she is officially retired from the MTV challenges, but fans will have to wait and see if that really happens or not. What do you think happened between Adam and Jenn? Whose side of the story are you buying? Are you on Team Adam or Team Jenn?
Tune in Wednesday night to MTV, Channel 29 on Cox cable, to see The Challenge: Rivals final jungle face-off. It appears the final challenge for MTV’s The Challenge: Rivals will finish on Wednesday, August 24 with the reunion show on August 31 and “The Sh*t They Should Have Shown” airing on September 7.
