RW/RR Challenge -- "Cutthroat" --Season Thread

This starts on 10/06/10.

The rules this time:

This season of The Challenge will feature a brand new format, consisting of three teams of ten players – five men and five women on each team. The three teams will participate in numerous challenges (sometimes called "missions"), which are followed by an elimination challenge, known as the "Gulag." The team who wins a challenge will receive a cash prize of $20,000 to be split evenly among the team members and placed in their individual bank accounts, as well as winning immunity from the Gulag.

The two losing teams will then be forced to choose one player of each gender from each losing team for possible elimination. Each player will cast secret votes to decide which two men and two women will battle in same-gender Gulags. The winning players will rejoin their respective teams and stay in the game, while the losing players will be eliminated from the game and lose all of their prize money in their individual bank accounts.

Red Team
Brad Fiorenza RW: San Diego
Brandon Drake Nelson Fresh Meat II
Camila Nakagawa Spring Break Challenge

Do any of these people actually have careers and lives that don't revolve around these shows? But I'll still be watching. Kind of off topic, will MTV do any kind of update on Ryan from Real World Brooklyn? They did a special on him, and his return to duty in Iraq about a year ago. Just kind of curious about it.

Some do; some don't. This cast is a lot of the newer faces with a smattering of the familiar. A lot of the newer people are still in the Pub crawl/appearance fee faze of their "career". If you could earn a lot of money in that short of time, I think a lot of people would do it.

Kenny isn't in this cast. According to TJ Lavin, who was on the BS report last week, Kenny is employed as a dock worker when he's not doing these.

Re: RW/RR Challenge -- "Cutthroat" --Season Thread

Damn, I hate the I can't recall faces to go with names, because a lot of those names seem like people I don't remember. Is that tall pretty girl who was paired with Kenny on the last one participating? I thought they were grooming her to be a star of these shows. Looks like Susie might never be back and I'm not happy about Paula being on. I've heard that she'd actually a bigger jerk in her real life than Kenny.

This is perfect timing after such a terrible Big Brother season. Just wish a few more familiar faces were involved. I like new faces, but a couple more of the bigger names still would have been nice.

These shows are the only thing MTV gets right. So much fun to watch.

Laurel Stucky Fresh Meat II is on the Gray Team.

I did a search on Susie(!) today, and she's at least still tangentially involved with the casts. She was in Brad and Tori's wedding (along with Evan and Wes).

Does MTV re-air episodes online?

So, Melinda is back on the market (divorcing Danny). If those two can't make it, what chance do the rest of us have?

Seems like a good balance of regulars and nut jobs which should make for an entertaining season.

I like the way the teams are split, it looks like it is potentially pretty even. I'm cheering for Red, since I like Brad, and I guess Blue already stands out as a team with a lot of jerks.

As soon as she said they were divorcing, I paused it and laughed.

I laughed myself when I heard that one. And they each took Wes and Johanna in the custody agreement.

Glad to see Evan and Kenny not on this. I actually really like both of them, but they were getting annoying. Plus I want to see Johnny Bananas flail in the water on his own.

Wish they would have left out Paula. I can't stand that woman.

Everyone else is good.

I on the other hand can't stand either of them and am really glad they are gone.

Without photos to go with the names of the contestants, I have barely any idea who these people are anymore.

Yes. That's how I catch most of my MTV shows. They do a weird thing where they pull eps for a few days but them re-post them, but other than that it's decent.

I told you guys that either he would kill her in a jealous roid filled rage, or that she would realize he's beneath her.

When the hell was the "springbreak challenge"? I didn't recognize the girl that went up against Cancun Emilee. I think the name was Camilla?
