Giannis Being a Fan of MTV’s The Challenge Delights Me
Most would say that we will not have sports in the next couple of weeks. Those people are not fans of The Challenge. American’s fifth spot comes back on April 1st on MTV. Last season was the first in a long time I didn’t watch because of YouTubeTV. The good news is I have a workaround and now have to binge last season. That will happen as I want to bring back Challenge Power Rankings in this time of sports misery. One thing that did brighten my day was learning that Giannis Antetokounmpo is a Challenge and Johnny Bananas fan. He quoted tweeted the trailer and wanted Bananas to stay deep into the show.

If I ever meet Giannis, I am 100 percent bringing up The Challenge. That is such an easy way into a conversation without looking weird. Ask him about Johnny Bananas. Ask him about CT. What are his feelings on Corey? Does he think he would be a good Challenge competitor (Giannis would excel at the physical challenges although I worry about his political game). This conversation would go much better than the time my friend Eric introduced me to Alex Lasry at Jo-Cats. I asked Lasry to provide his thoughts on Harambe that night. Yes, I was hammered. What about it?
