Real World Chicago: Filming Started, Not in Chicago

It seems that August is going to be a very exciting time for Real World & Challenge fans. The Real World Chicago is starting to film, but not in the Chicago. Like they’ve done on some of the previous seasons, production is visiting cast members in their hometowns to introduce them. This will probably translate […]

Most Profitable Recent Seasons

The Challenge tends to be a game where veterans win, but recently we’ve seen some rookies who have beat the odds. Despite the successes that some rookies have, other seasons have yet to spawn a successful team. For this post, I am going to look at the average winnings per appearance from the 10 most […]


#FlashbackFriday Beth VS. Svetlana

There’s a summer lull going on right now, so I’m going to seize this opportunity to talk about some Real World & Challenge moments that happened before this blog existed. Right now, we’re going to talk about the kind-of-controversial Beth VS. Svetlana Duel we saw 8 years ago. During this Duel, Svetlana fought Beth is […]


Real World Cancun’s CJ Koegel on American Ninja Warrior

Recently I’ve started watching the show American Ninja Warrior. As I watch the show I can’t help but think that some of the Challengers would be a perfect fit for a competition like this. Little did I know that one Challenger already had a chance at being an American Ninja Warrior. That’s right, CJ from […]


Challengers Whose Careers Ended on a Bad Note

Some Challengers bow out of the competition gracefully. Their last Challenge features a strong showing, usually with success and sometimes with a win. People like Susie, The Miz, Brad, Jillian, and Evelyn serve as prime examples of Challengers who went out gracefully. On the other hand we have some Challengers who left on a really, […]


5 Challengers Who are Great at Avoiding Eliminations

After watching Free Agents you might have felt bad for people like Cara Maria, Laurel, or even Johnny Bananas who seemed to appear in a lot of elimination rounds. While these vets spent the season fighting for survival, there were others who seems to slide under the radar. Let’s check out the Challengers throughout history […]


Real World Key West Alum Paula Give Birth to Baby Boy

Congratulations to Paula Beckert (Meronek) who gave birth to her first baby earlier this week! Fans of The Real World may remember Paula from the Key West season or any of the 10 Challenges she appeared on after The Real World.

How Chicago Has Changed Since The Last Real World

It was 13 years ago that The Real World was filming in Chicago for the first time. This season will mostly be remembered for the cast’s reaction to 9/11, Tonya’s kidney stones, and Aneesa’s love for nudity. Now that another season is filming in Chicago, it’s important to understand that a lot has changed with […]


Best Female Real World Challengers

The Challenge is now a show dominated by Real World alumni. Each season we see fewer Fresh Meat alum, and we’re lucky if we even get one Road Ruler. For the girls, the competition continues to be ruled by females from Fresh Meat and Road Rules… and of course oddball Camila. It seems nearly impossible […]


Real World San Diego’s Robin Expecting Baby #2

It looks like Robin is a no-show for the next Challenge. This veteran just found out some exciting news: she’s pregnant… again! I guess I’m not getting the challenge call for next season lol, it’s all good I’ve got a huge challenge ahead. โ€” RobinHibbard-Coulter (@RobinMTV14) July 4, 2014 You may remember that Robin […]


Challengers Who Have Seen the Most Eliminations

Some Challengers are great in the daily Challenges. For others, elimination rounds become a necessity for survival. Let’s check out the Challengers who have had to fight the most to stay in the game. 1. Wes Wes has seen a record-breaking 15 elimination rounds, most of which he was voted into because of his mouth. […]


Challenge 26 Speculation

It’s July. Free Agents is over. The Real World should start filming soon, but there’s nothing new airing. Just because we don’t see something on TV doesn’t mean the cogs aren’t turning. So I’ve decided to get the speculation started. Keep in mind, this is mere speculation. Nothing is official until filming starts. Even then, […]
