'The Challenge' Recap: Best Moments From '350,000 Dollar Pyramid
Wrecked By The Wall

Last week’s cliffhanger left viewers wondering which competitors would be sent packing right before the final competitions. Four of the baddest, scariest players were about to face off in Wrecking Wall. The first face off was between Leroy and CT. As two of the most evenly matched players, in size and strength, it really could have been anyone’s game. However, CT has made a name for himself on this show for bashing in heads. Compared to that, what’s one measly wall? CT punched holes into the drywall like it’s something his fists naturally do all the time. If only Leroy ...

'Awkward' Season 4 Episode 10 Recap: 'Snow Job'
Famed theologian Martin Luther (most known for posting his ideas on a church door) once said, “A lie is like a snowball. The longer it is rolled on the ground the larger it becomes.” Eva’s mounting lies created a whole snowstorm, figuratively, of course. However, I wouldn’t put it past her in the literal sense. Hence “Awkward” season 10 mid- season finale ep title “Snow Job.” Eva, or should I say Amber (more on that later) certainly put in work to distance Matty from his friends snow pile of evidence against the master manipulator.

Starting with Sadie, who got kicked off the cheese bus hea...

'The Challenge' Memorable Moments From 'Talk To The Hand'
“This is probably what it feels like to be sisters”

The episode begins with the continuation of last week’s best friend breakdown. Laurel and Cara Maria are still in the midst of their brutal fight that seemingly began over a petty roommate-like squabble. While Cara Maria is in the hospital, getting her hand checked out, Laurel talks to Zach, CT, and Johnny about her, claiming that she doesn’t care one way or the other if Cara comes back. (CT: “You’re being a little scary.”) She gets no sympathy from the guys, who flat out tell her she’s being stubborn and cruel.

When Cara Maria gets back...

'Awkward' Season 4 Episode 9 Recap: My Personal Statement
It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for: when Jenna sheds her insecure skin and owns Jenna 2.0 that’s been fighting to come out all senior year. Well, she finally made an appearance and left Sadie speechless and Eva pissed off, in the process.

Let’s dive into "Awkward’s" penultimate ep, “Personal Statement,” which kicks off with Jenna traipsing confidently around her house flaunting a collegiate scarf. A hopeful fashion statement for pulling the trigger on her college app submissions later on that night, but still makes a mental checklist of her qualifications (grades ✓extra-curricular ...

6 Ways 'Awkward's' Eva Maneuvered A Matty Hook-Up

Now that MatEva is an official thing (ewww, I know) or at least seems to be, me thinks Eva’s more the D.T.F girl, rather than the D.T.R type chick. Either way her mission to land a McKibben is pretty, much accomplished, but not without some manipulative maneuvering to get there. So, here we trace the 6 scheming steps Eva took to snag Matty.

1. For starters, she drove a wedge between Matty’s friends-with-benefits, sometime girlfriend, let’s just be friends partner Jenna. One startling example: Jenna looked to Eva for some girl counseling on Matty’s one word text to her, and she makes matter...

'The Challenge' Recap: Memorable Moments From 'Best Friends For Never'

“What’s a blue state?”

Just last week, the forced love triangle of Cohutta, Nany, and Johnny reached its tipping point. Despite being all doe-eyed over the sweet, southern gentleman, Cohutta, Nany slept with Johnny, even though she claimed no interest in him. Apparently, this doesn’t bug Cohutta at all. They’re cute and flirtatious, but they both look a little stupid.

“You’re so annoying.”

Laural and Cara Maria’s history is fraught with fights, condescension, and ass kicking. When they were on Cutthroat together, Laurel despised CM and believed that she didn’t belong in the end. On Rival...

'Awkward' Season 4 Episode 8 Recap: Prison Breaks
Just when we thought Matty and Jake were the only ones on legal lockdown, Jenna, Luke and Tamara created their own version of being under lock and key in "Prison Breaks" ep.

We pick up where we left off: six happy couples crowding Tamara’s car are replaced with two mopping singles just shy of an Adele-like meltdown. Shaking off Matty’s verbal sting, Jenna offers to get all their grooves back with an impromptu college tour of hotties. Sadie blows off the rebound road trip whereas Tamara is 100 percent down to go; given her lifeline/stalker feed (her phone for those wondering) has been stole...

'Awkward' Season 4 Episode 7 Recap: After Hours
How long before Matty’s spiral of destructive acts comes to a halt? If I were a betting woman I’d say the season finale. Until then, his latest night life adventure lands him in the clink alongside Jake. Jenna can’t shake her feelings for Matty and another two-some has changed their relationship status to single on Facebook.

“After-Hours” opens as a horror movie, okay, my own version of terror: Jenna’s working on math equations, but more or less reciting “1+1.” And we all know that extra numeral is … come on where there is an open book there he’ll be; Luke. The study session quickly turns ...

'Awkward' Season 4 Episode 6 Recap: Crowning Glory
Guess we can officially crown Jenna and Luke ‘shippers ‘cause nothing constitutes a D.T.R more than a pumpkin spice latte and bouquet of flowers. Other “crown-worthy”--hence the ep’s title --moments to note is Matty’s public confession and Jake’s catfish heartbreak. Let’s break it down.

Jenna 2.0 is in full effect with Luke by her side and the couple’s favorite aphrodisiac, books, sprawled on his bed. Jenna 2.0 can tots go on romantic rendezvous without parental permission. Curfew, you ask? What’s a curfew when your besties are in charge? Welp, it still means something to “Kev,” whose cal...

Fasten your seatbelts; it’s going to be a bumpy night, for some more than others (heehee). Jenna and Tamara discover their college selves. NEWSFLASH: they couldn’t be more different. Matty continues to self-medicate on his adoption woes and Lacey has a super fun frat party night.

Let’s dive in; the “Overnight” ep opens with Tamara and Jenna multitasking: combing Southern Coast University campus for hotties while simultaneously quizzing each other on their college interviews.
