Revealing the distribution and locations of Barstool vs. America Season 2
After a great first season, we’re getting ready to hit the road again next week with Barstool vs. America, presented by High Noon. There will be huge prizes, big challenges, bigger moments and much more.
Did you miss season 1? If so, be sure to binge and catch up now…
Who’s coming back for the new season? Who will join the cast for the first time? Which cities are we going to visit? I’ll answer all of that in a second, but it’s great to have High Noon back for another season, one that I think will be even better than last year. As we’ve done before, we’ll have fantastic High Noon happy hours in these cities for you to attend! We’ll send you more details as they start to arrive.
Let’s take a look at the cities we visit…
It will all start in Tampa, Florida, home of Tom Brady and the Stanley Cup. Last year we started in Dallas, TX and I got an amazing sunburn. It sucked! But everything else was great. It all started with a ride of bulls, then ended with an impressive maze…
Very Survivor-esque! Dallas was great, Florida’s Sunshine State will be a great start. We were actually there last year, but in Panama City, Florida, and it was a delightful (and sunny) time.
We are going back to Nashville, Tennessee!
The third leg of the first season tour becomes the second leg. We threw axes in Nashville and participated in this insane challenge of slippery stairs…
Even with the rain and gloomy weather, Nashville had a hell of a good time last year, and I expect the same in 2022.
Fun fact: this is where I got my only mid-term haircut last year. I won’t be going back.
Another new stop on the tour is the beautiful city of Madison, Wisconsin.
Since I forgot to show the challenge we had for stage two last year in Panama City, Florida, let’s step back in time for what was probably my favorite challenge…
The challenge was chaos, but the scenery was incredible. What we have planned for Madison (a big city I once went to, back in 2011 when Wisconsin and Russell Wilson beat the shit out of Penn State) in terms of challenges is fantastic.
The fourth stop will be a short drive from Madison to Chicago, Illinois, where we also went for our fourth stop of the first season.
I’m not sure many would question the claim that the Chicago team challenge was the craziest…
It was a fucking warm ass day in chicago. Competitors dragged giant cans. Pat was bleeding. A team made a big comeback. It was really wild, and Chicago still has a lot to do this season.
The finale has moved from the Jersey Shore to Boston, Massachusetts!
Last year’s final was awesome…
(Remember Glenny almost died)
The final challenge this year? Makes last year look like little potatoes.
Now let’s get to know the cast…
NICK TURANI returns to the Barstool Reality universe after a tough loss to Tommy Smokes in the first season of Surviving Barstool. In this show, Nick proved to be an elite strategist in the reality world. He also likes board games and has attended conventions, so he might be fucking sick of puzzles. This show will also require Nick to wear shorts, which is rare. Nick is a lot more competitive than a lot of people realize and I think he will be a force on the show.
Nick’s co-host on many shows, KB, is about to debut in the Barstool Reality universe (I’ll call it BRU in the future), and I think Barstool vs. America is the perfect show for him. He’s incredibly competitive, could enter a contest as the most athletic person this season, and often completes crosswords and various memory games (he’ll definitely be good at puzzles). People often think that KB lives a little, which surely won’t make people paranoid during the trip.
The return of DANA is here for Barstool vs America. One of four returning contestants from last season, Dana might have the biggest ax to grind for season two. He was on the winning team in the first season, but Vibbs viciously kicked him off the team in the final twist, meaning he was out of money. You could say Dana was the strongest player last season for a lot of the game, so he’ll be hitting the ground running this season without worrying about anyone in his path as he seeks revenge.
Another returnee from last season, MARTY Also looking for revenge, but for different reasons this season. It was Marty who led the winning team and became the hero by handing the money to Kelly Keegs in place of the booted Dana. Much like Dana, Marty was also pretty solid last season in challenges, especially in the more athletic and physical challenges. It should be noted that Marty and Dana had planned to issue the final challenge for Marty’s team, so that he in turn could choose Dana to win the money. That didn’t happen, because their gameplay blew up in their face with bad strategy. Can they clean things up for season two?
We go back to the “new candidates” side of things like ALEX BENNETT makes his BRU debut. She is one of the two most “mysterious” contestants of the season only because she is a new recruit compared to everyone else. Alex was obviously dubbed a “mean girl” recently by Dave, and while that’s not true, I’d love for her to fill the role of a classic mean reality contestant. Does she have it in her? We are about to find out.
We have another returnee! KELLY KEEGS is about to appear in a recording third BRU show after being in the bottom four for Surviving Barstool season one and winning silver in Barstool vs. America. Will Kelly feel the need to owe Marty something for him to choose her to make money in the first season? Will the other candidates see it differently since he has already won the show? No one knows reality like Kelly Keegs, and you know she’ll have a whole new mindset and strategy this season.
Speaking of returnees and winners, TAP is back after a fiery end to the season. He also won the money but was disgusted at being dubbed the villain throughout the season. Pat swore on (I believe) Friday Night Pints after the season ended that he would be “the Big Gay Villain” if he returned for season two. Is it even possible for him to do so after winning the first season? Will he be able to screw the fuck up, or will he have to play his cards a little differently this time around
Remember when I said no one knows the world of reality like Kelly Keegs? I was wrong, this title should go to JOEY CAMASTA. Another new contestant, Joey has lived in the reality world for years. Much like Alex Bennett, however, Joey is newer to Barstool and a bit of a mystery. What will his state of mind be? People think KB is a bit of a joker with goofy moments, but Joey is capable of that too. I am very excited to see how he does on this show.
What else? Nothing I can tell you!
I’m currently in Chicago for The Dozen: Windy City Clash Trivia Tournament, and we’re heading to Tampa this weekend. There’s a lot to do for the second season of Barstool vs. America, and you’ll want to stay tuned. Open those High Noons, binge last season and get ready for the chaos of reality.
