The VH1 reality competition series beat The Amazing Race, The Voice, Top Chef, American Ninja Warrior and Nailed It! It had already made history VH1, picking up the most noms in the Viacom network’s history and Charles picked up his fourth consecutive Emmy for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Program to tie Survivor‘s Jeff Probst for most wins in the category last weekend.
