Gauntlet Challenge begins tonight.

Gauntlet Challenge begins tonight.
MTV and Bunim Murray are churning out seasons of The Real World/Road Rules Challenge faster than Puck can blow a snot rocket into some peanut butter. The next one, officially titled The Gauntlet, debuts tonight at 10 p.m. ET. The title is also the name of this season’s twist, which will find the members of each team that are voted out each week participating in “a Gladiator-like competition that will put the loser into permanent exile.” That exile probably doesn’t include the next Challenge, however; the Real World and Road Rules teams include plenty of people who’ve been on a Challenge in the past. Jonny Moseley sells out and hosts once again.
