Real World 29: San Fran!

Real World has been renewed by MTV for the 29th season….are we surprised? Really though what would we do without our Real World/The Challenge fix? Resort to watching Big Brother?…no it doesn’t work like that.

Even if we are cray cray about The Real World fam…doesn’t mean everyone else is. Ratings in the last few seasons have been down…and some people are speculating this next season could be a make or break season. Here’s to hoping they change a few things in the house…spice it up a little…it’s been using the same format since it’s debut in 1992.

No word who will be in the cast…all we know is it’s going to be in San Francisco…and I’m excited about that. Last season was really lame, Portland…really though? Who cares about Portland?

The good news is The Challenge has a 50% higher rating than Real World…so we can definitely expect Bunim Murray to keep coming back with more seasons. Yay!

Here’s  a look back on some of the past Real World Seasons.

RIVALS II: The Couples Quiz

Still recovering from last week’s bizarre elimination round, the roomies have all banded together in their quest to bring down Theresa. When did this girl become Pucket’s most hated?


By innocently throwing away her vote for LeRoy, Theresa allowed Diem to effortlessly stir the pot, and when Diem’s final vote sent Leroy into eliminations, Theresa decides she can no longer trust ANYONE in the house. Girl, this isn’t a game of friendship, people are ready to attack and the fact that she was so surprised by Diem’s move, proves how little she knows about the challenge.

Moving on!…It’s a girl elimination week, which means the drama meters were boiling, especially because we’re halfway to the final challenge. TJ has a sneaky deaky challenge lined up, one that tests how well the rival teams know each other. One team member is tied up to a rope, suspended over the water ( as usual) and the other teammate has to answer questions, with the same answers their partner gave. Emily and Paula obviously killed the game like they always do, winning first place and winning immunity from eliminations.

Jemmye and Camilla were the first team to go down, so they automatically get sent to eliminations.  This game also added fire to the flame, as some questions asked team members who they thought was the fakest in the house? Or who needed the most attention in the house? The worst part was, if you answered wrong, you would’ve proven to the entire house what you thought of that person, then TJ named who your partner really chose …so now two people hate you in the house! It happened to Jemmye and Jonna, TJ asks Nany who Jonna thinks is fake in the house…and Jonna ends up saying  Jemmye. It was a big surprise for Jemmye, while she’s sitting on the side line, she flashes that ghetto girl grin like s**** about to go down NOLA style!

The guys have a laugh out of it, TJ asks CT which girl in the house is the trashiest…CT opts to not say anyone’s name and basically sends Wes into the waters. It was a very smart move on CT’s part.

Right away, Theresa is putting in work trying to get the rookie guys on her side. She asks them to vote in Diem and Aneesa, Jordan tells her that he has her back and they’re all good. After that, Jordan and Marlon are discussing their decision, when Johnny B overhears and decides to give them some words of advice. Obviously, the smartest choice would be to vote Theresa in because nobody wants her there. When TJ arrives, Jordan admits he promised Theresa one thing, but he’s going back on his word and voting for her anyways. Whatt’ya gonna do Theresa! This one’s for the books. Jasmine stands up before her name is even called…all like she’s ready for the battle, nothing can stop her, she always has the funniest walk when she knows she’s going into eliminations. TJ is quick to notice it and even asks her why she takes on a different attitude when she knows she could be going home. It’s so funny.

This elimination looked like fun, the two teams had to run on treadmills while throwing a ball across to their teammate, and then they had to dump the ball into a bin.  Looks easy but when you’re running your ass becomes tricky. Oh and there’s a big muddy hole in the ground so if you fly off the treadmill…it’ll break the fall.

They seem to edit the eliminations the same, at first they make you think one team has it in the bag and then magically the other team wins. Jasmine and Theresa started off good, but when Jasmine takes a tumble…the momentum stops. Jemmye and Camilla end up winning…which is a good thing because we are all Team NOLA. But jasmine, you will be missed.

In the end, Jordan admits whatever feelings he has for Jonna are irrelevant because he’s trying to the win the big money. On the other side of the house, Nany is talking about Jonna and how she always needs a guy’s attention in her life, which sounds about right. Nany admits the reason her and Jonna are rivals are because of Jonna’s ex…Zach. There is a whole lot of drama behind these partners that the show doesn’t even show!

MTV’s The Challenge:Battle of the Seasons premieres September 19th at 10pm. Here are some pictures of the cast.

This is by far the most thought out cast photo on The Challenge, but too bad we can barely see whose sitting in the back! Shout out to Zack the Gorilla in his lime green speedo, and Dustin looks like a freak in that pose.

My favourite team is NOLA (aka the lost season)…although they have the Baddest B*tch Jemmye (far right) I don’t think they’ll get too far. McKenzie looks like the most competitive from this season, but we’ll just have to wait and see if her ex-roomies hold her back.

My predictions, Team Austin for the win. I’ve been following The Challenge for years and veterans always end up winning in the end, they have more experience, and they just know how to lay low and end up in the final challenge.

If you haven’t seen the trailer yet you’re crazy, it is amazing, this season will definitely go down as one of the wildest seasons in Challenge history.

MTV’S The Challenge: Battle of the Seasons CONFIRMED

It’s baaaaaaaaaaack, and it’s official- the new season of MTV’s The Challenge will be the Battle of the Seasons. There’s 4 cast members from a bunch of different Real World seasons- and it’s going to be a CRAZY time!If you watch the Real World episodes, you know the strangers  bring a lot of their drama onto The Challenge, and it usually becomes crazier than The Real World seasons. I’m rooting for one of my favourite seasons- NOLA, Jemm and Knight have some unfinished drama and I’m sure it’s going to blow up on camera. Also Cancun was an amazing season and I hope they end up getting far. I think Danny and his season will definitely be in the top 3 teams- Danny and Melinda were married, they’ve been doing these shows for a long time and will probably have most of the experience.

I can’t wait- the promos literally made my heart skip, I can’t imagine what kind of drama the cast members get themselves into while in beautiful Bodrum, Turkey. UM, also Zach (RW:San Diego) and Jonna (RW:Cancun) making out?!? They make a hot couple though.

Battle of the Seasons premieres on MTV September 19th at 10Pm.

Check out the exclusive TRAILER.


So here’s the list for the upcoming MTV’s The Challenge. It is a spoiler, but I have a feeling it’s true since some of the cast members went MIA on my Twitter feed for a few weeks. I had a feeling they might be on the next challenge, and sure enough they are! Check it out.

Also, reading up on some other blogs- it looks like the format for this season might be Season vs Season, since there are 4 cast members from each season.
