Both seasons of Battle of the Exes have been an explosion of drama and emotions. By rekindling flames, production has brought out the best and worst in the cast. Of course, many of these couples aren’t real. They’re either rumored couples, one night stands, or made up. Nobody wants to see people who are “exes” just because they weren’t a perfect match in the Truth Booth. We want people were are an item for at least a season, and here are some options MTV just couldn’t obtain.
Danny & Melinda
Of course the fan want to see our favorite divorcees, even if we know they’re going to lose The Challenge (like they always do). They were contacted for both seasons, but scheduling prevented the pair from appearing. They not opposed to working together (they did on Battle of the Seasons), but MTV is no longer the center of their lives. However, I wouldn’t completely rule them out for Exes 3.
Jenny & Cory
After Real World Ex-Plosion, it seemed like Jenny was the obvious choice for a contender on Battle of the Exes, and of course fans wanted to see Cory by her side. Then, she declines The Challenge. Unlike most people on this list, she was only eligible for Exes 2, but it’s such an obvious loss that MTV should have know casting for this season would be rough.
Kellyanne & Cohutta (or Wes)
Kellyanne is the perfect contender for Exes, and Cohutta would be an easy partner for her to have because he wouldn’t bring the baggage that Wes would bring for her. Of course, when she’s offered to be on The Challenge she declines, leaving poor Cohutta as an alternate cast member.
Abe & Coral
We all want Coral to do another Challenge and it kills me to know she was considering doing the first exes alongside Abe. Of course, she didn’t do it, and Abe had to compete with his
girlfriend ex Cara Maria. Not that I’m complaining about Cara, but Abe and Coral would have been an epic team.
Landon & Shavonda
A loving pair on Real World Philadelphia, the two barely spoke on The Inferno 2. Apparently they were considered for Battle of the Exes 1, but someone didn’t want to compete. Still, with the power of Lando Commando they should know that the Challenge is easy money.
Someone From St. Thomas
Real World St. Thomas was basically a show about stir-crazy roommate fucking, so it seems obvious that Robb & Marie and Trey & Laura appear on Battle of the Exes. While there were some trouble with getting Robb and Marie, Laura and Trey got pass on for John & Simone.
Paula & Mike Mike
After chasing each other on Rivals, Mike & Paula definitely caught the attention of fans. Out of all of her potential “exes,” Mike was easily the nicest (and weakest) partner for Paula. It would have been nice to see exes who are interesting but nice people.
Johanna & Wes (or Kenny)
Everyone knows Johanna is perfect for Battle of the Exes, but she refuses to do another Challenge, especially with Wes. I get that it would be hard for those two to get along, but they’d be a power team.
Jenn & Adam
Adam claims he had been crushing on Jenn for years when they both appeared on Rivals, and Jenn gave him an emotional bitchslap by saying she has to be black-out-drunk before even considering him. While they’d make a funny exes duo, it’s also unlikely Jenn will do another Challenge.
Joey & Ayiiia
I know I said no one wants to see one-night-stands as exes, but this is probably the one exception. After spending most of his time in Cancun taunting Ayiiia, Joey returned at the end of the season and slept with her. They were asked for the first Exes, but Joey was expecting a child so couldn’t compete.
Zach & Ashley
OK, so I do consider Zach and Jonna to be a real pair of exes. However, people were scratching their heads when Nate and Priscilla were selected to compete over these two on the original Battle of the Exes. They still would have made a good pair for the second seasons.
Nany & Adam
Originally slated to appear on the first exes, Adam was too crazy to compete so production booted the team. I’m sure fans would have been excited to see Nany with a real ex on Exes 2 instead of her made up pairing with Bananas. Even if Adam didn’t work out, Cohutta would have been a better choice for her.
BONUS: Everyone would to see the original Challenge drama couple Mike & Trishelle compete on Battle of the Exes, but we all know Mike is too famous to come back now. *sigh*
