The Challenge: Vendettas Episode 2 Rankings

*All odds are strictly for entertainment purposes only. This is NOT a betting site.

So I am using my pre-Vendettas premiere opening lines as the originals. That would explain why rookies Rogan & Alicia started at 12/1 and ended up getting eliminated already. I do love seeing those at the bottom of my opening list (Eddie, Nicole R and Melissa) gone already. Cory still can’t get past that first week hump that has been haunting him lately, taking a favorable 9/1 and throwing it in the trash. Big movers for the males are Joss, Tony and Devin. Joss went from unknown to seemingly a force in the house, as long as Tony stays away from the booze his talent is undeniable, and Devin went from being a shlubby guy with great politics to a fit guy with great politics. I had Brad as a co-favorite to win the show preseason, but his fling with Britni has made him an early target, with most of the house looking to make a move to break them apart. Zach still stands with Bananas as co-favorite, though this is a risky ranking. His size and talent have really shown through of late (he was MVP nearly every chance in Champs v Stars), though if you told me he and Bananas were a pickem I’d back Bananas all day. 

Over on the women’s side, Cara, Kailah and Nicole Z stay in the top three, but with close company in Natalie and Kam who have both placed high in almost every competition. Britni drops for the same reason as Brad, as well as the fact I think she is less of a competitor as originally thought. Sylvia makes a huge leap based on her great showing in the elimination vs Melissa, and her willingness to stand up against being bullied by Brad and Joss.

Bananas 6/1
Zach 6/1
Joss 8/1 UP FROM 17/1
Brad 9/1 DOWN FROM 6/1

Sylvia 15/1 UP FROM 35/1
Jemmye 18/1
