The “Real World/Road Rules Challenge” is back for its twenty-second season and this time it’s a “Battle of The Exes”. This is one of my favorite guilty pleasures and am psyched that for this season MTV has teamed up couples from past seasons. That’s right all your favorite train wreck relationships are forced not only to live in the same house but to work together as a team. Among the exes teamed together are, law-breaker Abram with free spirit Cara Maria, brawler CT with cancer survivor Deim, old man Mark with slutty Robin, Lesbians Anessa and Rachel, obnoxious Wes with prissy Mandi, misogynistic Johnny with forgettable Camila and a bunch of other RW/RR retards. I a rooting for CT and Deim, both to win and to get back together. Their relationship looks to be a focal point of the season and the awkwardness of pairing them together is sure to make for great TV. Not a lot of surprises in the first episode other than host TJ Lavin still being alive. Wes is still a douche, a rookie team gets sent home first, and the casts biggest challenge is not getting black out drunk. The season takes place in Dominican Republic and at some point moves to Iceland. Each episode ends with two teams competing in a “Mad Max” type dome, where the loser goes home. One big change this season is that the winner of that weeks challenge becomes “The Power Couple” and decides who battles the loser in the dome. “The Challenge: Battle of The Exes” airs Wednesday 10pm on MTV, I for one have my DVR set to record!
