Real World San Diego debuts tonight.

Real World San Diego debuts tonight.
The fourteenth season of MTV’s signature show debuts tonight when The Real World San Diego airs at 10 p.m. ET. (Fourteen seasons is almost so unbelievable that I completely forgot about tonight’s debut until I was reminded.) Whether or not the public drama–a physical assault and sexual assault–that took place outside and inside the house will make it to the air remains to be seen. The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that advance tapes of this season weren’t available to the press because MTV “was still editing” it (mmm hmm). The paper also reports on the rape case, saying “[n]o charges have been filed and no arrests have been made, but the investigation is still open.”

The Quest ends its journey stronger than it began

Verlox from The Quest

A review of the finale of summer's best reality series, which wasn't always perfect but was thoroughly entertaining right down to the finish, which included phenomenal challenges and special effects. Will ABC give it a second season?

Plus: an interview with the actor who played Verlox and the ogre.
