Last year, during The Challenge off season, I wrote about a few seasons that changes the trajectory for the Real World/Road Rules/ Challenge franchise (Inferno 3, Real World: Las Vegas, Rivals 2, Road Rules Maximum Velocity Tour, Real World: Brooklyn, and The Gauntlet). We’re back in the off season, so I wanted to pick up this series of posts. This time, I want to look … Continue reading Game Changers: Real World St. Thomas
It seems like we see the same people over and over on The Challenge. While new faces are introduced each season, many of them are eliminated and never return. Sometimes returning Challengers end their careers in bogus ways and are never able to appear again, leaving fans wondering if they’re truly terrible or just a victim of bad circumstance. Here are ten Challengers who I … Continue reading Ten Challengers Robbed of a Chance to Redeem Themselves
Every so often, we’re introduced to a newbie who seems perfect for The Challenge. Maybe they had an athletic past, seemed to be a political mastermind, or had muscles for days. Then, they got their Challenge jerseys and flopped. These are those people who may not have the ability to reach the potential I thought they had: Laterrian: On the Extreme Challenge and Battle of … Continue reading Ten Challengers Who We Thought Would Do Better
AS OF OCTOBER 4th, 2016 THIS POST IS OUT OF DATE. Please view the official cast list here. Alright guys! I’ve debated posting this for a while, as there are always plenty of cast rumors that emerge prior to departure for a Challenge season. Right now, availability calls for the 29th Challenge season have gone one. Very little is known about this season right now. … Continue reading Challenge 29: Wild Cast Speculation
It seems like production has no love for the St. Thomas season. For two consecutive seasons, the cast has gotten snubbed in terms of casting. Despite the fact that much of the cast would fit perfectly into themes, production seems reluctant to include them. As far as Real World seasons go, St. Thomas performed pretty poorly, but there are valid reasons why this seasons would … Continue reading Is The Real World St. Thomas a Forgotten Season?
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 … Continue reading Exes That Still Need to Compete
Based on their social media activity, it’s pretty obvious that Trey and Laura are not on the next Challenge. Rumor has it they were alternates, probably because people forget that The Real World was ever in St. Thomas. After Battle of the Seasons, it seems the two were in a bad place and weren’t talking. Fortunately, it seems the possibility of being teammates as sparked … Continue reading Is The Challenge a Relationship Saver?
Tonight will mark the first time The Real World “Ex-Plodes” a cast by bringing in the exes, but there are certainly other couples that would have been interesting to see in a Real World house together. Let’s check out the couples who would have been interested to watch. Montana & Vaj (Boston) Being on The Real World could strain any relationship, hence why Montana and … Continue reading 7 Couples that Should Have Been Ex-Ploded
2013 only brought us 2 new seasons in the RW/RR/Challenge franchise: Real World Portland & Rivals 2. Though we had fewer seasons than we have in the past, we were left with quite a few memorable moments. Let’s check out the best moments from the year. 10. Nia & Jordan’s Love/ Hate Relationship When Nia entered the Real World house, she seemed interested in Jordan … Continue reading 10 Most Memorable Moments from 2013
Real World Ex-Plosion marks the 29th season of The Real World, and while we’re all prepared to see seven (plus five) new personalities, it’s impossible to not make some comparisons. So, I’d like to take a chance to check out the new cast members and compare them to the past cast member who they best resemble. Of course, these comparisons are based on the limited … Continue reading Real World Ex-Plosion: Who’s Who
Lions and tigers and Zach, OH MY! 1. The Wild Wild Wes At the beginning of the episode, we see Leroy and Theresa hooking up. Leroy, who is rooming with Wes, decides to take Theresa to his bed. This irritates Wes, who has previously hooked up with Theresa, so he leaves to room. Once the other cast members notice that Wes is gone, they make … Continue reading Rivals 2 Episode 5: Top 5 Moments
Tonight we’re going to see Zach cry over the birth of his nephew while production shoves a camera in his face. He is undeniably one of the toughest challengers on the cast, if not ever. Sometimes even the strongest competitors cry. It’s a fact. But I’m a little surprised we saw Zach cry based on his advice from Real World San Diego: So let’s look … Continue reading Tough Challengers Crying
