Bravo reveals Battle of the Network Reality Stars cast

Bravo’s resurrection of Battle of the Network Stars will feature a cast of reality TV people. And although we have to wait until August 17 to watch them compete, Bravo has announced a number of cast members, so we can get out our Play-Doh and make pretend cast members and have our own battles until then. Or not.

The cast includes mostly network reality stars, plus some from Bravo and MTV shows, who will compete “in physical and aggressively competitive challenges reminiscent of the original program,” according to NBC. They include:

  • The Amazing Race‘s Chip & Kim and Charla & Myrna
  • American Idol‘s Nikki McKibbin and Ryan Starr
  • Americas Next Top Model‘s Brittany Brower
  • The Apprentice‘s Heidi Bressler and Bradford Cohen
  • Average Joe‘s Adam Mesh
  • The Bachelor‘s Tina “Fabulous” Panas
  • Big Brother‘s Will Kirby and Mike “Boogie” Malin
  • Joe Millionaire‘s Evan Marriott
  • The Joe Schmo Show‘s Matt Kennedy Gould
  • Project Runway‘s Wendy Pepper
  • The Real World‘s Coral Smith and Mike “The Miz” Mizanin
  • Road Rules‘ Theo Vonkurnatowski
  • Showbiz Moms & Dads‘ Duncan Nutter
  • Survivor‘s Richard Hatch and Susan Hawk
  • The Swan‘s Rachel Love Frasier
