MTV’s second season of Ex on the Beach, a format it imported earlier this year from the UK, has doubled down on its casting of reality stars: all of the singles and more than half of the exes are from other reality TV shows.
The show is following the same model that The Challenge adopted recently, providing employment for reality stars from other shows and networks. (Two Big Brother winners will be on the next Challenge, for example.)
The season two cast includes people from Teen Mom, Big Brother, The Challenge, Are You The One, Bad Girls Club, Survivor, The Bachelorette, and other shows.
The new season—which MTV calls this “a celebrity-filled season two” with “romantically embattled stars”—premieres Dec. 20 and airs Thursdays at 8.
MTV’s press release said this “new season will also air across MTV’s international channels beginning in January.”
Romeo Miller returns as host; the season was filmed on Malibu Beach instead of in Hawaii, like season one.
