Sweet, thanks for the reminder! I didn't realize this was starting up again. It's just pairing up couples that have been "together" I guess?

Can we have a pool for which episode the Paula breakdown happens? She's paired up with Dunbar so you know a blow up will happen eventually. But MTV loves to wait awhile before throwing it out there.

I say episode 6.

Sarah's been talking about this, but never an air date. I actually think they might be doing another challenge in Costa Rica right now, but I'm not totally sure.

This is probably the "worst" show that I watch regularly and I love every minute of it. If only there was a way to air a new show every night or, at least, like 3 nights a week like Big Brother.

Shocked that Katelynn didn't make the cut.

Ohhh, that's a good choice.

I'll say 7.

There was a pre-season episode that aired two weeks ago that MTV might re-air. You might also find it online at MTV or Hulu.

Re: MTV's "The Challenge: Battle of the Exes" starts 1/25/12

I'm just wondering how in the world we were spared Jen this season. She's hooked up with half the cast.

Thankfully, they seemed to have moved on from Crazy Train Tonya b/c she's also like the village bicycle with a lot of the older cast members. Though I wonder if her disturbing allegations from last year factored in as well. For the record, Kenny hosted the pre-show, so that's where MTV stands on her allegations.

Lucky for the rest of the cast that they put Diem with CT. Laurel and CT would have been pretty tough to beat.

Johnny got off way too easy. They should have stuck him with Casey.

I don't think it would help Tonya's case much if she went back on the show along with the people she is suing. I wouldn't expect her to ever be back.

No Evan or Ev?

I don't think Evan has hooked up a lot on these shows. I think he did Veronica in the Ruins.

If Ev had ever hooked up with Rachel that would have been an interesting all female team.

I guess Kenny is sitting out this season too.

They should have partnered Paula with Michael from last season, just to see where their relationship would go.

Does anyone else dislike Sarah as a blonde?

Glad to see one of the more boring teams leave. I'd like to see a real Thunderdome competition...just need some bungee cords and weapons.

Nope. Don't like her as a blonde.

Don't like Laurel's (she was on the preview show 2 weeks ago) with the lighter hair either.

The actual competition in the dome was lame as hell.

Yeah, the dome challenge was a joke. They were probably counting on the two guys lasting over an hour, but Nate is a cream puff.

Sarah's guy Vinny got fat, wasn't he just on like a year ago and in good shape? Not a fan of blonde Sarah either. I actually liked Laurel's new look on the preview show, but I think she also lost weight or had work done.

Hella lame.

I did laugh my ass off at Nate continuously falling off the beam into the water.

I looked at Vinny going "Sarah had a one night stand with THAT?"

And yes, I don't like her as a blond either.

You were really surprised that Sarah had a one night stand with him? I guarantee you if her one night stands all came on television to be judged, he wouldn't be the one you'd find to be the worst. And he is pretty bad.

I thought it was funny that, even after TJ explained they'd be paired with exes, that many of the people there didn't seem at all sure of who they'd be paired with.

I don't think Paula was ever a virgin.

Because random hook ups on the Challenge or in the RW house are not exes. They're just random hook ups.

They should have called "Battle of the Hook Ups".

What the hell happened to Vinny I think he was on Cutthroat last time in great shape compared to now. Normally I would question how is Mark still on these shows when He has said many times before he has retired. But he is in better shape than almost all the guys participating. I think Adam and Nadia from RW Vegas would have been a good couple for this show also.

CT remains my favorite. I like Wes, too - not sure why though.

Surprised for no Kenny or Evan this time around. Must not have exes from the shows.

There's something genuinely sweet about Diem and CT
