Real World/Road Rules Challenge debuts tonight.
MTV’s latest The Real World/Road Rules Challenge, called Battle of the Seasons, debuts tonight at 10 p.m. ET, and features two members of every single The Real World and Road Rules cast in single-sex, two-person teams competing for $300,000. All seasons are represented on the teams except for The Real World San Francisco and Hawaii, and the first and fourth Road Rules seasons. The show includes an interactive online game that allows you to build a team of eight players you can trade (up to six trades for the season) and earn points every time your team members cry, fight, get naked, hook up, mentions a previous season of a show, and more. The online game’s winner gets a 2002 Saturn SC2; there are also other prizes.
+ also: a marathon of last year’s Challenge airs today from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. ET.
