The debate over who the greatest all-time competitor on The Challenge will forever have different answers, but one name who will surely always be up there in contention is CT Tamburello. With nearly two dozen seasons under his belt, CT has had one of the most incredible journeys in the history of the entire franchise. From kicked off for fighting to fighting for the win. From being a quintessential bad guy to softening up and winning the heart of an amazing woman, CT’s transformation on The Challenge is one of the most incredible in the entire series. He may claim he’s retiring season after season, but he just simply can’t say no.

The Longest Oscar-Winning Movie Is Actually a Miniseries

4 2

4 3

Over the course of the last several decades, the line between television and film has become blurred. While traditionally there was a notable budget and quality difference between the two mediums, many of the best modern drama shows like Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, or Mad Men reached a level of quality and significant resources that rivaled many of the smaller films in theaters. Additionally, the growing serialization of blockbuster films, particularly those in the superhero genre, has made many big-screen events feel like just episodes of a prolonged serialized narrative. Theres a fuzzy line to be drawn, but the 2016 documentary O.J.: Made in America became the first project to win both an Academy Award and a Primetime Emmy.
