The Challenge: Cory Wharton Finally a Vet … For Now
MTV switched things up this year with “The Challenge”. This year MTV has given the ‘underdogs’ (players who have never won a challenge) the illusion they aren’t playing again any previous championships. Well MTV has a surprise up their sleeves, they are eventually bringing 8 championships to crash the underdogs party!
This is Cory Wharton’s third time competing on the show. During his 1st season Cory made it to the finals and came in second. Cory’s 2nd time around he was sent home approximately half way through the season. This time he’s hoping to take home the 1st place win.
Cory did an interview with the Candy Dish podcast. This is what he had to say about this time around vs. his previous two times.
“I would say my mindset on this Challenge was a little different. I’m looking around and I’m the vet, so I’m like, ‘Holy — this is a lot different than what I’m used to. So, I’m kind of excited at this point. I’m licking my chops ’cause I got all these rookies around me and I’m the vet. It’s time for me to get a win.”
“It felt good to know that, hey, I’m one of the most experienced guys here. It kind of gave me that leg up. It was weird for people to come up to me and say, ‘Which days are Challenge days? How does elimination work?’ For me to be answering those questions was weird because just two seasons ago, I’m coming up to Bananas or whoever it is and I’m asking them the same thing. It was definitely different.”
Was Cory expecting the champs to show up? How did he react to seeing them return to ‘The Challenge’? Find out on Tuesday, February 21st.
