Bad Asses (and Derrick) win the Inferno 3; Gauntlet 3 taping in Mexico

“I’ve done six challenges–the curse is broken,” Derrick Kosinski said at the conclusion of Inferno III Challenge. The Bad Ass team won, easily defeating the Good Guys and whiny, increasingly annoying Susie.

Although the editing and the actual challenges improved for this season, the show itself seemed too familiar as the Challenge seasons start to blur together. But MTV is not letting up: The Gauntlet 3 is challenge is currently taping in Mexico; it will be the 14th season that pits cast members of the two shows against one another.

The new season’s cast “appears to be one of the largest cast ever to film a Real World Road Rules Challenge, which includes cast members of the recently wrapped up Real World Sydney and last aired season of The Real World Denver,” The MM Agency’s Michael Martin reports. It apparently features Veterans versus Rookies yet again.
