ABTV Loves Ultimate Tag

There are so many things that happened during the second episode of Ultimate Tag that you didn’t get to see! Amongst the edits we lost a face off with The Boss and the ladies in Chase Tag where Aisha went toe-to-toe exhausting Brooke Ence (The Boss) and Thurman Brown doing a superman dive in Dodge Tag landing him on top of Devon True. As for me, you missed some great conversations between Derek Watt and I during interviews, a much longer Chase Tag, and, oh yeah, a pretty stellar bear hug with The Giantess that left me feeling like I was 900 feet in the air. 

But, you know what’s better than the edits? Who the competitors and taggers LOVE TO HATE!!! We always kick off the show with the person that was so good at being a badass that we love to hate them! Perhaps it’s just an aspirational  jealousy or just props where they are deserved. Here’s what we had to say.

ALIKONA: “My #WhoILoveToHate…..[The Iron Giantess laughs] She already knows, it’s The Iron Giantess! I’m so mad only- only because, you don’t see it on camera, but we had a full-blown not really, but a conversation. Cause I was trying to hop over you [in Dodge Tag], but I was afraid to hop over you because Sarah (from episode one) was like, ‘She will pull you down do not jump over her!’ And you were there and I was like, I don’t want to kick you!’ I’m going to pass the torch to you, [Iron Giantess]  who do you love to hate?”

LAURA: (The Iron Giantess) “Okay, you guys were beasts and I don’t think– you guys were the race that Brooke and I both got spanked on and they cut it, but we both went out there and got our butts spanked. And Zaza–“

AISHA (Zaza): “I knew this was coming!”

LAURA:  “It wasn’t just that we got subbed out, we got– you were angry. Like, all of us were like, she is frightening! So we were all scared of you through that first race and then we left the course and you were…you’re a fine human!”

AISHA: “You guys were scary!”

LAURA: “You guys are scary back! We weren’t used to it, we were just used to being scary alone.”

AISHA: “I mean really, I love to hate Bulldog because he got me in that first game after- but we ran through all the taggers as you guys remember, and he came out HOT! And I was like, “oh my God”, like, watching him from the back of the arena and just him galloping over those hurdles I was like, “this is where I go out.” Like- I was petrified at him coming after me at light speed, and I went through the tunnel and I hesitated for like a millisecond. I was going to come back through to like, juke him and that’s when he ended up getting me. And so, he did tag me out really quickly, but then I really hated how proud he was that he got me out so quick after being in there for almost 5 minutes.”

ALIKONA: Thurman who do you #love to hate?

Thurman: “Ooo, I #love to hate The Flow because I feel that before we started Revenge tag he already, like, counted me out. He thought I was a lay up, he thought he was gonna- you know they (The Flow and Host J.J. Watt)  had a bet to see ‘Can I get him out in 30 seconds’ so I would say I  #LoveToHate the flow, but honestly- in order to be the best, you have to go up against the best. He honestly gave me a good game, so it’s like a love and hate relationship, but I think I hate him more!”

Alikona: “Let’s take it to a tagger then, The Kid.”

CORBIN (The Kid): “Oh, me, huh? Okay, so my love to hate, I got to say, during all the episodes I don’t think I was taken down by anybody but you Alikona. When you came up on me, you pushed me back and I landed back on my back and I’m just- even seeing that on TV made me feel, I wasn’t super crazy about it. So, I think I have to love to hate you.”

ERYKAH:  “Um, I would probably say the Iron Giantess. Laura! Cause I love her to death, I love her to death. I mean she’s an awesome person and just looking at, you know, her and all her Instagram pictures, she’s very inspiring. But then when she was like, ‘You better run!’ I was like, ‘Ooo! Wait what?!’ I was having a flashback to my [track)] coach so I was like, ‘Welp. Well, alright bye!’ But I love her more than I hate her, though.”

AUSTIN: “I’d love to say the Bulldog, but he kind of like, just wore me down.  He didn’t really- he wasn’t, like, so much faster than me. So I #LoveToHate The Kid cause I think my, uh, my fate kind of went downhill after I chased after him in Revenge Tag. They actually asked me, they were like, ‘Hey, who got you in Revenge Tag?’ And I was like, The Kid.’  And that’s who they put in for the final obstacle for me and I think knowing he was back there, ya know, scared me a little bit cause I knew how fast he really was.”

DEVON: “If I can be all the way honest, I hate that rule in the game to where it was a tiebreaker. They should have had sudden death, me and Austin should have went head-to-head.”

AUSTIN: “I agree with that, personally.”

DEVON: “We should have went head-to-head for that one. But if I do have to say somebody, it would be La Flair cause of that one tag he got me, he did a lot of trash-talking, you know.  And it was just like,  you know,  I’m gassed so, like, I’ve been running all day long. So like, calm down. But yeah, he’s a good guy though.”
