The next Real World confirmed to be in Austin; Philadelphia cast to be in Naughty and Nice; Cara in line to be Playmate of the Year

BMP announced yesterday that the 16th season of The Real World will be held in none other than Austin, Texas. The Real World: Austin, which has not yet begun filming, will take the series to the state of Texas for the first time in the show's fourteen-year old history. If you know your Real World trivia, the sixth season, which actually was filmed in Boston was originally slated to be in Austin. Coming back ten seasons later, Austin won out over other cities because of its college-age population, music scene and nightlife. Other contenders and sure to be future backdrops for future seasons were Washington DC, Atlanta, Denver, Sydney and Montana. The series was scouting for military personnel who were in Iraq early last year, so expect to see someone who is a member of our armed forces be on the show. I an interview with the Yahoo! News, Jon Murray hinted that the cast has already been picked, saying that this might be one of the best casts ever assembled. Austin will be the smallest city that has ever hosted a season of the Real World. Philadelphia will end its run on Feburary 22. The Real World: Austin will premiere in June 2005.

More information is coming out on Naughty and Nice by the minute. This next challenge will include Philadelphia castmembers and will begin filming mid-January. It is slated to begin airing on MTV in March 2005. This should be right around the time that both Philadelphia and Battle of the Sexes 2 should end their runs. And what about Road Rules? Well, Road Rules will most likely air in June, alongside the premiere of Real World: Austin. Road Rules is not usually known about because of how they are constantly hitting the road in exotic locales. It's hard to get a pinpoint on who or where the cast is when they are actually filming.

And help Cara (South Pacific) win the coveted role of Playmate of the Year. She earned a spot as Playboy's Miss November in the magazine. Click here to vote for Cara. The winner will be announced May 10th. Support our alumni!

The Inferno marathon airs today on MTV

Mike loses Tough Enough; Battle of Naughty and Nice is being casted

For those of you who are waiting to find out about Mike (Back to New York) and if he won Tough Enough 4, don't read the following. If you do, highlight to read:

Mike has come in second place. Although the winner has not been announced officially, WWE announced the winner because they film Smackdown episodes well ahead of their Thursday air dates. Although Mike has come in a close second, he is said to be offered a development deal with the WWE. And if you watch WWE, you do know that Tough Enough contestants who do not win the titles, do have development deals with them and end up becoming WWE Superstars. Good luck to Mike!

The Battle of Naughty and Nice is said to be well on its way as castmembers are now being confirmed to appear on the next Challenge. Some websites have already confirmed several different castmembers. The new Challenge is supposed to start filming early next month and will air in March.

Mike loses match to his opponent on the finale of Tough Enough, still has the vote

For those of you who watched WWE's Armageddon last night, Mike (Back to New York) lost to Daniel Puder in the Tough Enough match. Mike wasn't knocked out, but fans in the stadium decided that Puder performed better and he was declared the winner of the match. Although Puder receives a boost from winning previous challenges, it ultimately decides on the vote. This is a chance for Mike to win a million dollars. The winner will be announced Thursday on WWE's Smackdown. Click here to vote for Mike. I am told if you delete your cookies each time after you vote, you can vote for him multiple times.

Trishelle was not selling herself for a date; You can buy a ticket on the Reality Cruise

So remember that Real World and Road Rules cruise with Trishelle (Las Vegas), Katie (The Quest) and Ace (Paris)? Well, you can actually book the trip now with Carnival cruise line which will depart from Miami in May 2005. Click here for details.

Also, do you remember Trishelle (Las Vegas) auctioning off a date with her on E-Bay? Apparently, this is not even true. Trishelle was never part of the fiasco and is considering her options for what she can do next. The date went for $1000+.

So are you sending out your chain emails? Voting on multiple computers? Mike (Back to New York) is in the final two for WWE's Tough Enough 4. If he comes through with the most votes, he will be crowned Tough Enough's winner and will receive a million dollar WWE contract. The winner will be announced Sunday night on pay-per-view on Armeggedon. Help out Mike and vote for him here.

Mike is close to a WWE contract; Tonya is Playboy's Cyber Girl of the Week

For those of you who are big Miz (Back to New York) fans, Mike has now made it to the final two against his biggest competitor Daniel Puder. I'm hearing rumors abound that a big part of the final decision as to who gets the million dollar contract is going to be the final vote. However, the judges will also factor the winner of a match between Puder and Mike in the final decision. Most give the advantage to Puder, who is a fighting expert as he has several belts for something (or so I'm told). So us Real World fans need to support Mike and push him through to the final contract. Although we've been criticized a bit for our undying support for Mike, here at the Blog, we love to help out any alumni any way we can. If you remember, a huge part of Rachel (San Francisco) being chosen as the final three on The View was huge fan support. So really come out and vote for Mike when voting starts tomorrow. This is where you vote!

Tonya (Chicago) has now joined the growing ranks of alumni who have posed for Playboy. Beth (Los Angeles), Jisela (The Quest), Veronica (Semester at Sea), Flora (Miami), Trishelle (Las Vegas), Katie (The Quest), Arissa (Las Vegas) and Marybeth (South Pacific) have all posed for Playboy in one form or another. Cara (South Pacific) was actually Miss November 2004 and will be up for Playmate of the Year 2004. But Tonya (Chicago) is now a Playboy Cyber Girl of the Week, following Marybeth (South Pacific) who appeared on the site shortly beforing appearing on Road Rules. Check out the Playboy pictures of Tonya, here. Also, if you want to check out the Playboy DVD that some alumni did, go to our store, which is accessible from the menu on the left.

Real World houses takes a look at the empty San Diego house; Cameran is still dating Jeremy Bloom, not Mike

Real World Houses has an exclusive with the San Diego house which shows how the house looks during and after the castmembers moved out. You can actually see the San Diego pad stripped down to white walls and non-flashy furniture.

And Kristin reported from E-Online a couple days ago that Cameran (San Diego) was dating Mike (Back to New York). Sounded a little odd. But Cameran showed up at a speaking engagement recently and confirmed that she is still in a relationship with Jeremy Bloom. Apparently, she was really miffed about how things went down on the Battle of the Sexes 2 with alliances being formed with the veterans and how once she got there, she actually volunteered to go home.

Jon Murray is named President and Chairman of Bunim-Murray Productions

Congratulations are in order for Jonathan Murray. He is now the chairman and president of BMP. Check out the article here.

Have you seen the walking between two hot air balloons? That was a feat performed by Road Rules Maximum Velocity Tour. Or the bungee jumping into each other arms at Victoria Falls? That was a feat performed by Road Rules Extreme and Real World New Orleans also bungee jumped off Victoria Falls. Or what about the wingwalking stunt? Yup, Road Rules Islands Kalle did it during her season. So if you want to relive some memories, check out the show.

And there's some interesting information I received from a fan Darlene. Now, I don't know if this is true, but it's worth posting to see if it actually is. Darlene was flipping through old tapes of American Idol, Season 1. And lo and behold, there was a blonde Angela (Xtreme) auditioning for Simon, Paula and Randy. Is this true?

With scores of magazine articles done on Jacinda (London) and Ladder 49 ending its run on US screens relatively soon, Bridget Jones Diary: Edge of Reason will hit US in a limited release on November 12. This was bumped up by studio execs who felt that the film would benefit from an early limited release, creating buzz about the film. Jacinda plays Rebecca in the film, a co-worker of Bridget. It's rumored that Bridget (Renee Zellweger) and Rebecca will share an odd relationship at points, even sharing a semi-erotic kiss that has been described as "gentle, but hot".

Mallory (Paris) is in the latest edition of the Abercrombie and Fitch catalog. She appears on the internet at this photo which was lifted out of the catalog. And to clarify from the last Mal post... she is dating David Blaine, the magician, not musician.

And it seems that Cara (South Pacific) caused a little bit of controversy in her hometown as a piece was done on her in the local Toledo broadcast. A local news legend has resigned as a result of a story he did on Cara. Take a look at the link here.

It was overheard that the girls don't win a mission until well into the Challenge. So, expect the girls to lose again. Cameran (San Diego) and Ace (Paris) are expected to go home tonight. And if you check out Trishelle (Las Vegas) and her radio at the Fishbowl , you'll know that Cameran wanted to go home willingly during the Battle, because she didn't like the way the girls team got along. Does this mean that we'll see Cameran volunteer to go home tonight? Not necessarily. Watch tonight and find out!

Philadelphia house is still in its original Real World state after filming ends

Here's an update on the Philadelphia house by a recent visitor:

"On a recent trip to Philadelphia, I went down to the Old City section of Philly to do some sightseeing. The house, which is on Third and Arch, is only three or four blocks from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. The neighborhood looks kinda seedy, especially down the street on Third. However, the house still looks beautiful and is in its Real World state, without all the lights. The flower boxes are still present and there are still some sort of furnishings in the loft. You could see plants through the windows, but all the drapes were drawn, so it was impossible to look into the house. The sign in front of the house, including the bus stop have both been replaced. You can't really tell it was a Real World house, except for the people who snap photos of it every once in a while."

Real World 16 may be in Atlanta or Washington DC

The Bert Show, which once counted Lindsay (Seattle) as one of their hosts, has announced that The Real World will film its sixteenth season in Atlanta. Check the link here. They say that the projected location is in a high-rise condo in Midtown. Up until now, Washington DC has been considered a popular choice amongst fans, with a false "house sighting" in the Adams Morgan section of DC. No official word yet from Bunim-Murray, who has been known to through a curveball at times. (Most recently, many thought Season 13th would have been filmed in Atlanta, but Paris was chosen.)

Trishelle will have Steven on her Fishbowl Talk Show soon

Trishelle (Las Vegas) has been doing her own radio show over at TheFishBowl and she wants you guys to go check out her shows. She has done several interviews with alumni, most recently Karamo (Philadelphia) and she even will have Steven (Las Vegas) who is on Battle of the Sexes 2 appear on the show soon. In the past, guests have included Irulan (Las Vegas), Eric (New York), Beth S. (Los Angeles) and Adam (The Quest).

Steven is sent home for slapping Shane; Shane hooks up with Nick

Here's some more information on Battle of the Sexes 2. Highlight to read:

Apparently, Steven (Las Vegas) makes it relatively far in the Challenge. He's very close to making it to the final three. However, an incident occurs in which I'm told Steven "accidentally" slaps Shane (Campus Crawl) and some sort of a huff is made about it. It's unclear what exactly happens or if Steven gets voted off or is sent home, but it has something to do with his hitting Shane.

Speaking of Shane, supposedly he and Nick (Xtreme) did have something going on during filming. However, it's supposed to be well-hidden and away from the cameras. So we might not even see any of it.

Mark is now divorced; Eric has a wedding ring; Shawn, Tina, Chris are engaged

Just a tiny clarification on our last post: Mark (USA Tour 1) has been divorced since the last Battle of the Sexes aired, so he did not cheat on his wife with Robin (San Diego). We also reported when Battle 2 was filming in New Mexico, that Eric (New York) was seen with a wedding ring. Eric is wearing the ring as a "promise ring" between him and his on-again, off-again girlfriend of two years. The ring puts any flirtation between Eric and Veronica (Semester at Sea) to rest that happened when they were on the first Battle of the Sexes. Also married on this Battle of the Sexes is Arissa (Las Vegas). Shawn (Semester At Sea), Tina (South Pacific) and Chris (South Pacific) are all engaged as of the airing of this show.

Tonya hooks up with Mark; Mark hooks up with Robin; Angela is on everyone's bad side

With Battle of the Sexes gearing up soon, we have been hering gossip flying left and right about who hooks up with whom, who hates whom, and everything in between... We can confirm some speculation with some spoiler-ish information right here:

Talking about love triangles: Tonya (Chicago) will get action this season as she hooks up with Theo (Maximum Velocity Tour) and then breaks it off with him, only to go over to Mark (USA Tour 1). However, that doesn't even last long, as Mark (USA Tour 1) steams it up with Robin (San Diego) who I hear are still a couple today and are officially dating.

As for the hating game, Angela (Xtreme) will digress into the same role that she was placed on in Xtreme. She won't be getting along with her teammates and will cause a huge stir for one reason or another. We also hear that Cameran (San Diego) arrives late and is not well-liked by her teammates as well, which is supposed to explain her early departure. We'll see, Battle of the Sexes premieres next week on MTV.

The man who murdered Alton's brother and best friend was sentenced in court yesterday

If you remember when Alton (Las Vegas) had his mother visit the house and Alton spoke about his little brother's murder... Yesterday, the man who murdered Alton's brother Jonathan and Alton's best friend, was sentenced to death by a San Diego court. This comes after years after the actually murders were committed and a recent convinction, which failed to yield the death penalty. Our thoughts and condolences are with Alton and his family.

Philadelphia profiled in Teen People Magazine; Sean and Rachel appeared at the RNC

October's issue of Teen People Magazine has an article about The Real World: Philadelphia. I'm told the article contains pictures of both the cast and the house. Check it out.

And I keep getting emails about both Sean (Boston) and Rachel (San Francisco) being at the Republican National Convention, being held all this week in New York City. The married couple are both heavily involved in conservative politics, as Sean is Ashland County's District Attorney and he played around with the idea of running for Congress last year. While, Rachel publicized her Republican viewpoint by being the "conservative panelist" on ABCs The View. If you watch long enough, you might catch a glimpse of them.

Battle of the Sexes 2 promos aired during the VMAs; Extreme and San Diego casts attended the VMAs

Last night were the MTV Video Music Awards and more promos were aired for Philadelphia during its airing. You'll be seeing more as September 7th gets closer and closer. They also aired a short snippet of Battle of the Sexes II. It was part of those "This Season on the 10 Spot" promos. Speaking of the VMAs, there were LOADS of alumni in attendance.

Most prominently, the Philadelphia cast were in attendance and they walked down the carpet together. Of the San Diego cast, Frankie, Jacquese, Randy and Robin all walked down the red carpet together. But I also heard that other San Diego cast members were also there. Xtreme walked down the red carpet together, reunited as a group of nine. (This should put any rumors to rest, that Angela is sent home later this season.) Other alumni that were there? Mike (Back to New York), Shane (Campus Crawl), Veronica (Semester At Sea), Mallory (Paris), Christena (South Pacific)... just to name a few.

And Coral (Back to New York) is featured in this issue of King Magazine. Congratulations go out to Coral.

Philadelphia's timeslot given to the VMAs; Extreme will soon end; Battle of the Sexes 2 to begin

For those of you who were smitten by the Philadelphia cast in last night's episode, you're going to have wait two weeks until you see a Real World episode. Even though the VMAs officially air this Sunday night, MTV took the Tuesday timeslot next week and gave it to a replay of the VMAs. The first episode airs September 7.

As for filming, there are no Real World or Road Rules series that are currently filming. Xtreme, which was filmed earlier this year, will end its run in the next two months. The next challenge, Battle of the Sexes 2 which filmed in Galisteo, NM last month, will begin airing on MTV following the end of Road Rules.

As for future seasons of Real World and Road Rules, the sixteenth season of The Real World had officially begun casting last month. There is no official word as of yet as to which city hosts number sixteen, but previous contenders have been known to include Sydney, Washington DC, Austin, Boulder, Atlanta and Knoxville. Road Rules XIV should begin filming alongside Real World XVI, although no official comment has come from BMP about the next season of Road Rules. And there was talk about another Challenge to be filmed immediately following Battle of the Sexes 2, but no move has been made by BMP and production has been pushed back indefinitely. That being said, there probably will not be much info made available about new seasons within the next few months.

And time for some alumni news: Cara (South Pacific) will be joining the ranks of such alumni as Beth (Los Angeles), Flora (Miami), Veronica (Semester at Sea), Jisela (The Quest), Katie (The Quest), Arissa (Las Vegas), Trishelle (Las Vegas) and Marybeth (South Pacific) as the latest girl to pose in Playboy magazine. However, Cara will get a special spot in the magazine as she will be Playboy's Miss October and will get the chance to be Playboy's Playmate of the Year. Beth, Flora, Veronica and Jisela were a part of a special feature of the magazine, while Katie, Arissa and Trishelle all took part in a DVD.(which is available in our store) Marybeth posed for the online magazine. Cara would mark the first time as an alumni making it as a Playboy centerfold. Congratulations to Cara!

If you head over to Wireimage, you can see photos of Bon Jovi and the Philadelphia cast at a press conference yesterday. (Search for Bon Jovi or MTV Real World.) The cast's job in the later part of the show was to build a playground with the Soul Community Outreach Program. They held a press conference to open the playground yesterday.

Preview episode of Philadelphia airs tonight; Coral and Abram may be dating

The preview episode of The Real World XV: Philadelphia will air tonight. Expect to see snippets of the new season and old castmembers talk, talk, talk about the new roomies.

And I've been receiving numerous sightings of two very suspicious alumni. We're all hearing rumors that Coral (Back to New York) and Abram (South Pacific) are dating. They actually started something secretly during the Inferno and apparently we're supposed to see something of their romance in Battle of the Sexes 2. However, many people have been catching both Coral and Abram out in public, schmoozing it up, in each other's arms. Well, the latest sighting was the most interesting as someone spotted the couple at Disney's California Adventure with none other than Abram's parents. Good luck to those two and we'll see them on the Battle this fall!

New York Post details Philadelphia cast; The cast may have two gay male castmembers

The NYPost published a very interesting article today. The castmembers moved out over the last two days and are currently in the middle of press week, so there will be lots of stories on the seven strangers over the next week. But the article does reveal some interesting tidbits about the new season.

MTV.com already confirmed that Willy was the gay castmember. But, The Real World will make history this season with two gay men on the show. (Chicago had two gay people, male and female.) However, you may seem to notice that the fact was left out of the MTV profiles, because the person "(as yet unidentified)... tackles coming out of the closet on the show."

This actually wouldn't be the first time someone "came out" on the show. If you remember way back when, five seasons ago in New Orleans, editors portrayed Danny as "straight" on the casting special. On the first episode, they made it seem like Danny "came out" in between the end of casting finals and the start of filming the show. (Viewers later found out that it was a ploy of producers and that Danny had came out before the casting of the show.)

There was speculation on The Real World Philly Boards that Karamo was gay and Sarah is quoted in the article as saying, "We have political debates, and there are issues of race and sexuality with two gay men in the house." She also comments on how all the castmembers are all over 21, five are all over 23. There is also talk about the fight involving Shavonda and Landon, a romance in the house, the set-up of the Seamen's Insitute, and how the cast got tattoos in Fiji. Check out the article here.

Philadelphia profiles are up; Yes is on the Driving Votes Caravan

Over the weekend, MTV posted up profiles of the seven strangers and should be posting information on Battle of the Sexes relatively soon. The premiere special with Dan (Miami), Cameran (San Diego) and Jamie (San Diego) (amongst others) will be airing tomorrow night.

And an update on a former castmember: Yes (Semester At Sea) is traveling with the Driving Votes RV Caravan. He's working hard to register voters in swing states just in time for the upcoming Presidential election. He left Seattle on Friday and will arrive in New York next week in time for the RNC after registering voters in Missouri, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. Anyone and everyone is invited to come meet up with Yes at the Driving Votes RV at each stop! Here is a schedule of meet-up dates and locations.

For those of you that are American citizens and are over 18, be sure to register to vote in time for the Presidential election in November. Be sure to register especially if you live in the following states: FL, NM, WI, IA, OR, NH, MN, MI, OH, NV, TN, PA. Go to either Rock the Vote or Declare Yourself to learn more about how to register to vote.

Philadelphia promos begin to air on MTV

For those of you waiting for those Philly promos, MTV has started to air them. There are several different types of promos being aired at this time, but they're not in heavy rotation and probably won't be until the week before the season premieres in September. Probably check MTV.com's website as they will probably update fairly soon.

Bon Jovi issues a press release for the Real World Philadelphia

For those of you hardcore Jon Bon Jovi fans, Another official press release has been released over at Bon Jovi's site confirming that the seven strangers will be working with the Philadelphia Soul. The short bit says that there will be some Jon Bon Jovi and Philadelphia Soul footage, but it is unclear how much will be included. You can probably expect the band frontman not to have a vested interest in the Real Worlders job, but to have a presence similar to that of George Maloof in the Las Vegas season, where Maloof delegated supervision of the seven strangers to someone else... The article posted on the site also tagged on the press release that was at the Soul's webpage (see previous post), which cleared up some confusion which had the Real Worlders working with the Soul's community program after the football season ended during early taping of the show.

The arena football team, owned by 80's rocker icon Bon Jovi, has hosted this season of The Real World as the seven strangers will be working promoting games. With the season primed to end relatively soon, Gross says that the castmembers are busy shooting the opening credits to the show and doing press.

Ruthie may be the last female castmember to go home on Battle of the Sexes

Here's another spoiler about Battle of the Sexes 2 about another girl who was voted off:

We previously reported that Brad (San Diego) was the last male team member to go home. Ruthie (Hawaii) was the last female team member to go home. They both did not make it into the final six.

Eric will replace Derrick on his chat on Reality Spot; Wrestling star to appear on the Challenge; Philadelphia will vacation in Fiji

The following is information on the Final 3 at Battle of the Sexes 2:

At RealitySpot's chat with Derrick (Xtreme) yesterday, Derrick was actually unable to make it. Theo (Maximum Velocity Tour) apologized this morning and said Eric (New York) was supposed to be his replacement. He also said that both he and Eric were still filming the Challenge, and that there were two days left. So, we know that both Eric (New York) and Theo (Maximum Velocity Tour) are in the final three.

In related news to that, Theo promises chats at RealitySpot with Brad (San Diego), Randy (San Diego), Robin (San Diego), Mark (USA Tour 1), Derrick (Xtreme) and Ibis (Xtreme).

In other news, WWE wrestler Bill Goldberg, posted at his website in his latest news section: Goldberg To Appear On Real World/Road Rules: On 8.9.04, Goldberg made a cameo on MTV's Real World/Road Rules. The segment will air in October. No word yet on whether he was part of a mission.

And also... in the Philadelphia Inquirer's magazine section, there are some interesting new tidbits on the upcoming new season of The Real World.

  • MTV will start running promos this week. The show debuts Sept. 7.

  • The roommates are helping to construct a playground for a youth group in the city, although their official job is working for the Philadelphia Soul.

  • They vacationed in Fiji last month.


  • We all saw the lush tropical paradise of the South Pacific in Road Rules last season, but MTV Producers decided to allow this year's roomies to stay in Fiji for a week. Although the roomies are not even out of Philadelphia yet, they say that half the episodes are complete.

    The Inquirer names the castmembers as Landon, Karamo, Willy, M.J., Shovonda, Melanie and Sarah, which of course, has been known by hardcore fans ever since they moved in on April 30. The manner of speed in which this season has been produced has been sparking controversy throughout the internet world of whether or not Real World producers are already beginning work on a loft in Washington DC. After someone began spreading news that the loft was already being constructed above a Maggie Moo's ice cream store in the Adams Morgan section of DC, the Washington Post called producers who told them that the rumor was absolutely false and that no property, nor the city for the sixteenth season had yet been selected.

    Thanks to Kyle, Mitch, and Palau for that information! If you haven't checked out Jamie's (New Orleans) new DVD, Reality Road Trip Bahamas, do so now!.

    Steven, Shane, Theo, Brad, Ruthie, Robin, Ibis, Tonya, Coral are on the Challenge

    Kristin at E-Online weighs in on the Challenge this week, confirming and denying some people who are in attendance:

    She confirms that Steven (Las Vegas), Shane (Campus Crawl), Theo (Maximum Velocity Tour), Brad (San Diego), Ruthie (Hawaii), Robin (San Diego), Ibis (Xtreme), Tonya (Chicago), and Coral (Back to New York) are all there. But she also mysteriously says that Mike (Back to New York) declined to do this Challenge? Unfortunately, we can neither confirm or deny this.

    Theo's comedy act bombs when he tries it out in New Mexico during the Challenge

    The following is a little blurb that appeared in the Santa Fe New Mexican about Battle of the Sexes 2:

    "MTV's reality-TV series, being filmed at the Vista Clara Ranch resort in Galisteo and around Santa Fe, is called The Real World/Road Rules: Battle of the Sexes. It pits 18 men against 18 women in contests like making rafts out of recyclables and melting blocks of ice with their body heat. We know this because a half dozen of the women cast members showed up at the Downtown Day Spa, 112 W. San Francisco St., on July 24 for massages, facials and manicures. "They kill our bodies," one said. They enjoyed their pampering at the spa without the intrusion of cameras.

    Cameras were on hand on Tuesday, however, when Theo, one of the male cast members, tried out his stand-up comedy act at the Bar B in the back of The Paramount, 331 Sandoval St. But Theo found out a few things about Santa Fe when his crude joke comparing Hispanic women to piñatas was greeted with a stunned silence. "You racist," someone yelled. Theo tried to fend off the hecklers, but he was visibly unnerved. We'll have to see if they edit that part out when the show airs in October."


    And if you have time, we just opened up our store, which offers over 70 Real World/Road Rules related products, it's one of the biggest selections that the internet has to offer. Check it out here.

    Someone breaks into the Battle of the Sexes resort and gives us the low down on the Challenge

    Chris, a New Mexico native lays out most of the season for Battle of the Sexes 2. Amongst the things he reveals... is the final 7 for both sides and he confirms and denies some castmembers in attendance. Chris contacted us and had pictures of the villas and ranch. If you don't want to know spoilers, do not read it, because it spoils a lot of the season. Check it out his post (which he also emailed to us) at:

    Coral and Rachel are doing well in the Challenge; Veronica is not doing well

    Here's a small, itty-bitty update on people's performance at the Challenge:

    As far as the last few people being sent home, we haven't really heard anything, but the last we heard, some of your favorite "regulars" had some varying degrees of success. Now, we all know that performing well in the missions doesn't actually mean that you're not going to be sent home. But, it does tend to help you sometimes... Coral (Back to New York) is said to performing well in the Challenge along with Rachel (Campus Crawl), while Veronica (Semester At Sea) is said not to be performing as well.

    Kristin from E!Online says that the Philadelphia season might top Vegas in its antics

    According to Kristin from E! Online, the upcoming season of the Real World in Philadelphia is said to be the craziest one yet. It is said to be dirtier than the Vegas season and have more jail time than San Diego season. It has also been reported that the Philly cast has two undercover police officers following them at all times in case any fights break out. Tune in this fall to see just how crazy the new cast can get.

    Cynthia was the replacement for one of the girls who dropped out

    Howdy, this small tidbit from the Challenge currently filming in New Mexico. Highlight to read:

    We reported last week that one of the Real World girls had dropped out and was replaced even before the Challenge began. The replacement is Cynthia (Miami). There's no word as to who she replaced. We're still working on that one, although a few of the female Real World girls have been confirmed to be in attendance.

    Jacinda lands a leading role alongside Joaquin Phoenix in Ladder 49

    Some alumni news on a person you don't hear too much about: Jacinda (London) has a leading role in Ladder 49, starring both Joaquin Phoenix and John Travolta. She plays the wife of Phoenix's character. It has a nationwide release on October 8. She will also star opposite Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, and Hugh Grant in Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. Reportedly, she plays a co-worker of Bridget Jones who "experiments" with her. It's set to premiere in November. And finally, she has also just finished production on Mr. Ripley's Return which follows The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999) and Ripley's Game (2002). She stars opposite Willem Dafoe and Tom Wilkinson. No release date has yet been set.

    Ayanna is voted off; Girls are losing to the boys; Jisela was supposed to be on this Challenge

    The following is spoilers for Battle of the Sexes 2. (Highlight to read:)

    Ayanna (Semester At Sea) has been voted out. And some people have been asking if the girls are faring better than the boys, since we're hearing more about the boys' being kicked off than the girls... The answer is no. The girls had a rough start and it seems like the first Battle of the Sexes, without a winning streak to start things off.

    And apparently, there has been a line-up change in the girls' side. One of Road Rules girls decided to drop out of the Challenge right before boarding the flight to New Mexico and was replaced. My guess is, since it happened before the Challenge started, the other person will not be mentioned at all. Definitely more on this later.

    Jacquese appeared on TRL today meaning that he will be voted off; Abram and Adam are both gone

    Here's some minor, minor spoilerish info. Don't read if you don't want to know about Battle of the Sexes 2:

    Someone mentioned that Jacquese (San Diego) was on TRL today, so he is definitely voted off. And over at Tubescan, they have confirmed that Abram (South Pacific) and Adam (Paris) have been both sent home. There is definitely more to come!

    There's a picture of Jillian over at another website

    We all know that Jillian will be joining the RR Extreme cast in the near future. What you might not know is what she looks like. The people over at the Tubescan message boards have found a picture of the new cast member. Check it out here.

    The Blog gets a new domain name

    A few updates on our site. You can now find the site at www.rwrrblog.com. A little easier to type than our blogspot and cjb addresses. They will still be functioning as well though.

    Pictures of Abram, Dan, Mark, Eric, Randy, and Shane at the Challenge surface on the internet

    For your viewing pleasure... These are the first pictures ANYWHERE on the internet from Battle of the Sexes 2. Here you have Abram (South Pacific), Dan (Northern Trail), Mark (USA Tour 1), Eric (New York), Randy (San Diego), and Shane (Campus Crawl). Lisa from NM submits these exculsive pictures. We want to send a big shot-out to her!

    Abram (South Pacific), Dan (Northern Trail), Mark (USA Tour 1), Eric (New York) Johnny Moseley (Host)

    Big Ran (San Diego) Shane (Campus Crawl)


    With Lisa's information at hand, the latest information for the participants on the Challenge are:


    Girls Team:
    Cameran (San Diego)
    Robin (San Diego)
    Arissa (Las Vegas)
    Tonya (Chicago)
    Aneesa (Chicago)
    Coral (Back to New York)
    Ruthie (Hawaii)
    Genesis (Boston)
    Beth S. (Los Angeles)
    Rachel (Campus Crawl)
    Jisela (The Quest)
    Sophia (The Quest)
    Katie (The Quest)
    Tina (South Pacific)
    Ayanna (Semester At Sea)

    This obviously completes the boys' team and the remaining two Road Rules girls are most likely, definitely from Xtreme... Lisa from NM (much Blog love to ya!) also confirms that she saw Theo (Maximum Velocity Tour), Ruthie (Hawaii) and Derrick (Xtreme). There is also a mission with punching bags hanging over a river. Castmembers have to hold on the punching bags and the person who holds on to them the longest wins. Once again, thanks to Lisa and remember you heard it first on the Blog!

    Some additional added info: The pictures were taken at a local rodeo on Sunday. Randy, Eric, and Shane were said to be the nicest of the group. And, if the picture is enlarged enough, it's noticable that Eric (New York) had a ring on his fourth finger on his left hand...

    If you're in the New Mexico area and happen to snap pictures, send them over to us at newrwroad@hotmail.com.

    The Vista Clara Ranch will host the Challenge; Dan and Ayanna are a part of this Challenge

    After we received a tip from one of our message board posters, we decided to check out Vista Clara Ranch as a possible stomping ground for Battle of the Sexes 2. After repeated attempts to reach the information line, the Blog got into contact with a representative for the Ranch, who told us "they were not allowed to discuss that information" with us. Hmm.. Interesting.

    Vista Clara Ranch is a spa resort that heavily resembles locales used in previous Challenges. Located in historic Galisteo Basin, southeast of Santa Fe, New Mexico, Vista Clara occupies eighty acres of land once home to the Tewa Indians and later settled by Spanish ranchers.

    Our web poster also mentions that Dan (Northern Trail) and Ayanna (Semester At Sea) are also a part of this Challenge. She also says that Johnny Moseley is once again returning. More info on this later!

    Rape charges dropped in San Diego incident

    According to the LA Times, the San Diego county district attorney dropped the case brought on by the 22-year-old woman who was alleged to be raped in the Real World: San Diego house. After reviewing both hard evidence and tapes that police obtained from producers, prosecutors decided there was not enough evidence and decided to drop the case earlier this week. "At this point we're not filing," said Paul Levikow, a spokesman for the district attorney's office. "That could change if new evidence comes to light."

    If you remember, back in November, one of Randy's friend's, who goes by the name of Justin, picked up a girl at a night club. The woman alleged she was drugged and raped in the bathroom. Two castmembers were apparently witnesses, one unknown who claimed to have seen the woman stagger out of the bathroom, incoherent. And the other, known to be Jamie, who said she saw Justin coming out of the bathroom saying, "I just hit that." The issue of the rape never made it onto the air and in fact, most of the latter part of the filming of the series was omitted, presumably because of the rape incident.

    Real World cast earns a jeer from TVGuide; MTV is holding its first ever Reality Awards

    In the Cheers and Jeers of Reality TV issue for next week's TVGuide, the Real World makes the list amongst the plethora of shows out there. TVGuide jeers both Ruthie (Hawaii) and Puck (San Francisco) for their behavior during their seasons. The magazine points out Ruthie's alcoholic behavior and Puck's peanut butter habits as reasons for the jeers. However, TVGuide also lists The Real World in a blurb about the decline of reality TV, praising its early seasons for tackling tough issues. Check it out.

    Puck is appearing in the Trivial Pursuit 90's Edition Commercial

    Here at the Blog, we're dedicated to bringing you the exclusive. That being said, we have the latest information on Puck (San Francisco). Puck recently filmed the commercial for Trivial Pursuit, 90's edition. The commercial features 90's icons such as NBA bad boy Dennis Rodman, OJ Simpson houseguest Kato Kaelin, Saved By The Bell's Screech: Dustin Diamond, Titanic's Rose: Gloria Stewart, Gymnast Kerri Strug and her coach Bela Karolyi, and Baywatch babe Traci Bingham. The commercial is set to begin airing nationally in October, but the pics are here now. The premise behind the commercial is a kid who opens up a time capsule in his backyard, and when he opens it all these 90s icons jump out. The following are pics:




    Thanks to Puck's agent, Brian J. Monaco at Worldwide Talent Group, Ltd. for the pictures.

    Cameran shows up naked on the internet and joins legions of other castmembers who have posed naked

    It's just been a X-rated day here at the Blog... There are alleged photos of Cameran (San Diego) circulating around the internet. Supposedly, at a Spring Break venture, Cameran gave the crowd a little peak, that she might be regretting right about now. CollegeHumor.com actually takes responsibility for the photo and they also have Tonya (Chicago) covering up her top with nothing but her hands. The alleged photo of Cameran is a shot taken from a far distance, which questions the credibility of the photo.

    If the photo is real, Cameran would join the ranks of former castmembers who are infamous for posing nude. Arissa (Las Vegas), Trishelle (Las Vegas), Katie (The Quest), Jisela (The Quest), Marybeth (South Pacific), Veronica (Semester at Sea), Beth S. (Los Angeles), and Flora (Miami) all posed for Playboy at one time or another. Cameran would also join Danny (New Orleans) in a naked-pic-circulating-on-the-Internet scandal, as alleged photos of Danny also surfaced during the airing of his season. Ace (Paris) has photos that also grace the internet, taken when he was crowned "MTVs King of Spring Break", where he donned the stage wearing nothing but whipped cream.

    Britney Spears spends her wedding night in the Real World suite at the Palms Hotel/Casino

    Just a minor note: You think the Las Vegas season was hot? Jason Alexander, the once-beau of pop princess Britney Spears, recently spilled the beans about his 55-hour whirlwind courtship of the "Oops, I Did it Again" singer to the press two days ago. Apparently angry about her recent engagement to backup dancer, Kevin Federline, Alexander released intimate details of their courtship, marriage, and breakup, which all occurred within a few days. So why are we reporting this? Apparently, all this took place in the very suite that Alton, Arissa, Brynn, Irulan, Frank, Steven, and Trishelle once stayed. Not huge news, no... But there are some pretty interesting details about what they did in the Real World suite. Alexander actually gives specific locations to where certain "acts" took place. Here's the link.

    San Diego is the highest rated season of the Real World ever

    The New York Post is reporting that The Real World: San Diego is the highest rated season of the Real World ever. More than 3.8 million viewers watched the last episode where the seven strangers parted ways. Overall, the 14th season averaged 3.9 million viewers, consistently placing in the top 10 cable television shows, and the #1 MTV show. The Post attributes high ratings to (amongst other things) Brad and Robin being arrested. Congratulations to Bunim-Murray Productions!

    Theo posts on his website that the Challenge is filming in New Mexico with some castmembers confirmed

    On an interesting note, Theo (Maximum Velocity Tour) posts this on his site:

    So another Real World/Road Rules challenge is about to begin filming in New Mexico, and I'm sure it will be a doozy. It's the Battle of the Sexes Two, and supposedly there are a lot of "regulars" on the cast again, such as Miz, Coral, Katie, Veronica, Darrell. However, no one knows who the entire casts are for either team. And I'm certain there will be a few surprises, as always with any Bunim-Murray Production. We'll just have to stay tuned to see what goes down in the dirty Southwest. i'll keep you clowns updated.... cheers... theo

    The only new thing about this is that Theo mentions Darrell (Campus Crawl) as a castmember, which is a very good possibility.

    Four castmembers from Extreme are to appear on Battle of the Sexes 2

    With filming set to start in a couple of days, information is leaking out everywhere!!! Two new additional things to add to the Battle of the Sexes 2 spoilers... In addition to the list that we posted earlier today, four of the remaining unknown castmembers are from the Xtreme Cast (not including Derrick, who is confirmed), it is just unclear exactly who it is... And we're getting word that this season of the Challenge is going to be filmed in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

    A partial list of the cast of the Battle of the Sexes 2 is now online

    From various sources around the web, we have compiled a list of Battle of the Sexes 2 castmembers. (New additions are italicized.) So far, the group includes:


    Girls Team:
    Cameran (San Diego)
    Robin (San Diego)
    Arissa (Las Vegas)
    Tonya (Chicago)
    Aneesa (Chicago)
    Coral (Back to New York)
    Ruthie (Hawaii)
    Genesis (Boston)
    Beth S. (Los Angeles)

    Rachel (Campus Crawl)
    Jisela (The Quest)
    Sophia (The Quest)
    Katie (The Quest)
    Veronica (Semester At Sea)
    Remaining Road Ruler
    Remaining Road Ruler
    Remaining Road Ruler
    Remaining Road Ruler


    Boys Team:
    Brad (San Diego)
    Jacquese (San Diego)
    Randy (San Diego)
    Ace (Paris)
    Adam (Paris)
    Frank (Las Vegas)
    Steven (Las Vegas)
    Mike (Back to New York)
    Eric (New York)
    Derrick (Xtreme)
    Abram (South Pacific)
    Chris (South Pacific)
    Shane (Campus Crawl)
    Theo (Maximum Velocity Tour)
    Mark (USA Tour 1)
    Remaining Road Ruler
    Remaining Road Ruler
    Remaining Road Ruler



    Some notes: If you notice, the Real World teams on both sides are at 9 members apiece. Assuming that each team contains 9 Real Worlders and 9 Road Rulers, the identity of all Real Worlder participants is known. And so that leaves 4 female Road Rulers and 3 male Road Rulers, which will most likely come mostly from the Xtreme cast, which is the pattern on each Challenge season (to include lots of castmembers from recently aired seasons.) But, of course... this little blurb is just speculation.

    As you know, this is not 100% confirmed as the Challenge has not even begun to film yet. Changes can be made to this list.

    Props go out to Tubescan Board for providing earlier lists of castmembers and all the posters there and at other sites who help to search for additional information.

    A fight club breaks out when Shavonda is dancing with a club patron causing her and Landon to be interviewed by police

    According to Philly.com, there has been another incident involving the Real World Philadelphia cast. Police are investigating a fight that took place at the 32 Degrees club on Saturday, July 3. Stephen Wiley received 16 stitches in his back after a fight broke out between him and four men over Wiley dancing with a female cast member. The whole thing was caught on tape and MTV handed over footage to the police. Two cast members, Landon and Shovonda were interviewed by police. Looks like this new season will be full of drama!!

    San Diego reunion to air next week; Two will get the boot according to E!Online

    Now that the seven roommates have left San Diego and are all sitting cozy at home, you all need your Real World fix! Next week, San Diego will air its regular final installment with the reunion, which will be attended by all eight castmembers and hosted by MTV VJ Vanessa. The Real World: Philadelphia is slated to premiere sometime this fall. Until then, Road Rules: X-treme will be airing all summer. And the next installment of the Challenge is now in production (probably to debut alongside Philadelphia).

    And speaking of X-treme, Kristin at E-Online says that two will get the boot this time. She also mentions Nick who was named as a replacement for a booted castmember. But, when asked who Nick actually replaces, (Spoiler, highlight to read)Wanda nixes the idea that Danny is the one to be booted, but rather Derrick is the one to go. No confirmation on this as of yet.
