I was listening to Derrick’s most recent podcast and he mentioned that production had contacted him about his availability for this challenge. He also went on to say that Team Road Rules would have consisted of: himself, Katie, Rachel, and Darrell.
My immediate thought was: “WTF MTV?! why exclude them???” HOWEVER, Sarah Rice (who was also on the podcast) mentioned that Team Road Rules would have been unfair. Most of the teams have rookies in them, and all four member of team Road Rules were veterans and champions.
Sarah brings up a good point. I think it makes sense to exclude Team Road Rules for that reason. It’s clear that they’re trying to bring in a new generation of challenges, and this team would dominate.
What do you think? Would this team have been too strong, or should they be included anyway. VOTE!
