'The Challenge' Final: Will it be Johnny 'Bananas' Devenanzio's seventh win? Fans say 'anyone but him'
It's Johnny 'Bananas' Devenanzio's 20th season on MTV's 'The Challenge' series, which makes him one of the unfathomable reality TV personas ever. He has probably been on air more times than any lead actor of a long-running sitcom. What makes Johnny a deserving candidate for the win is his grit and determination, which has not faded in the two decades that he has been a part of the show.
Over the years, Johnny has grabbed six titles under his belt and won $600,000 plus amount as cash prize. He knows the show from inside-out and therefore it really isn't difficult for him gauge what will add to his screen time and what won't. And that is what makes him such a force to reckon with. Today's final of 'The Challenge: Total Madness' proved that when he climbed the steep mountainsides on skis with logs of wood despite his age. As he completed the first leg of the final challenge round, Johnny realized that Faysal Shawn 'Fessy' Shafaat may have overtaken him but it was Cory Wharton who surprised everyone by finishing first.
It's too soon to predict who would win 'The Challenge: Total Madness' because everyone seems to be giving it their all and there's hardly much of a difference between the veterans and the rookies, especially how they have been performing tonight.
Meanwhile, fans seem to not want Bananas to win with some even claiming that his last few wins were questionable and the first ones were mostly with the help of the teams he was in.
"Bananas isn’t even that great to constantly win finals. I’m sorry but his last few wins are questionable. His first couple of wins were team wins. #TheChallenge35 #TheChallengeTotalMadness #TheChallengeMTV," a viewer commented, while another shared: "There is not one person in this final that I actually like or ever root for I guess I want Cory and Kaycee to win just please not bananas #thechallenge35."
"Bananas still won't be the GOAT if he wins. Most wins don't mean the greatest #TheChallenge35," a fan tweeted. "I just pray that Bananas doesn't win this final. I can't stand him #TheChallenge," another pointed out.
