Road Rules was so awesome. It's waaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better than The Real World. Vote Shane in because Veronica deserves to stay more.And you guys also said all this crap about Kina sucking when she did a litle better than Veronica and Way better than Susie. She is also HoTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!

Does anyone know where I can get Road Rules Xtreme. Any stores?
Other seasons would be cool too like SAS Or CC but I wonna see Xtreme because Of Derrick.

this season sucks. i hate it.

mrjones said...

the new road rules is, well...completely lame. Its a sad attempt to duplicate the challenge. Don't kid yourself. Ill still watch it.

** As for finding the seasons of real world or road rules, most of the seasons aren't released on dvd. However, you can often find bootlegs on ebay!

cheers!

Anonymous said...

mr. jones, i couldn't agree more. This is really a pathetic attempt to re-create the Challenges. It's kinda sad actually. Maybe Road Rules is dead?

Anonymous said...

are you kidding? i love this season, so far. and the cast is awesome(Abe is sooooo hott!). well, I'll be voting for veronica to go into the elimination round thing, cuz she is such a b*tch, and I like Shane alot more.

Anonymous said...

I enjoyed the first episode..i am excited for road rules to be back! i voted for veronica to go and from the pit crew i chose Dan. I'll probably always choose a girl to go in because they are all annoying! Abram is HOT!!

Anonymous said...

I voted for Shane!

Anonymous said...

Hmm... Anyone want to give their reasons for why Shane or Veronica should go?

Shane - he's been on far less Challenges, he has no real enemies, he's cute

Veronica - she's been on too many shows, she seems fake

I voted for Tori to go in, because I would like to see a battle of the girly girls.

Anonymous said...

road rules is so bad this season...the real world and the challenges are so much better. also aside from abram the cast on this season sucks and i really dont like any of the pit crew or whatever

Anonymous said...

I want Veronica to stay because I hate that hoe Kina. I hate Kina.

so when r the pit eliminations filmed and when do we see them????

This season rocks!!! GO MISS MEAN GIRL VERONICA!!

Anonymous said...

the pit eliminations are this weekend. they'll only air on mtv.com. i think shane will be sent in. unfortunately, a lot of people LOOOOOOVE V. shane isn't as polarizing, but not enough people have an opinion of him.

mendasph said...

Keep Shane on the RV! Veronica should go in. She can kick ass, but still, Shane needs to stay. Kina's a bitch, Susie is a little back stabber. Adam - OMG, what an idiot! He's so incredibly evil and stupid. Abram, eh... Keep Shane on the RV!

Anonymous said...

Whatever, you think Tori is a girly girl? I know for a fact she could beat any of the girls out of the pit crew (yes, even Ivory...trust me) and I know that if we want to see Veronica gone, Tori is the one to take her out!

Anonymous said...

If Veronica leaves this whole show will be nothing but Kina stomping around deciding who stays and goes.

Plus, Veronica is more entertaining.

Anonymous said...

can kina say words any slower....JESUS CHRIST ITS ONLY A HALF AN HOUR SHOW...she needs to go and hopefully she get her ass kicked my that big lesbo...i hope veronica stays...she keeps it interesting...i dont know how people say she is bad for the show...people try to vote her off before they can get to know her....maybe people should check their pasts at the door...abe needs to stay...adam on the other hand is an ignorant piece of shit...i hope monte kicks his stupid ass

Anonymous said...

I really like this season and this is comimg from someone who has been watching RW, RR, and the challenges since the very beginning.

Vote out Shane and keep Veronica! The show will suck without V she makes it interesting.

Anonymous said...

Veronica HAS to stay! The show will be so boring without her. Vote for Shane to go into the pit!

I wish there were a way to vote Kina and Adam into the pit.

"you don't vote the girl into the game who is the girl that created the game" -Veronica

classic.

road rules is back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Paz said...

this shit was actually watchable and i watched the whole shit unlike the real world. this real world is boring and not exciting.

i don't know why they cancelled road rules to begin with. even though i only seen south pacific and xtreme, those shits were killing the real world at the time.

Nihaal said...

I loved the first mission, however I was pissed with the vote results...Veronica shouldn't have been put into the pit, sorry she did much better than Susie on the mission, and is less annoying than kina...however the guys votes i guess were ok, but i'm voting for shane to go in...and if veronica goes in, i hope she comes back and kills kina...thats all...lol

Anonymous said...

I think that first challenge was absolutely crazy... something i would want to try in real life.

I want Shane to go into the elimination pit, yet at the same time it would be really interesting to see Veronica go against Tori.

Anonymous said...

I hae how I got a "NEXT" vibe from it, meaning the MTV show next. it seemed so like...fake..I dont know if it was the cameras used or what, but it just seemed really rehearsed like "DATE MY MOM" and "NEXT".

anyways, i hope shane goes. but this will suck if there is a kina-susie-adam-abram alliance. can't they just keep voting the other guy and girl the entire season? boring.

Anonymous said...

Susie is an idiot.

Anonymous said...

I thought it was ironic that the reasoning for voting shane and veronica was because of a possible alliance, but that was the same reason Adam wouldn't vote for the other two girls. I thought the show was awesome though. I'll definitely keep watching.

Anonymous said...

If the network really wanted to attract viewers and bring back road rule... you would think they would have selected a better cast. For example, Theo, Katie, Devin, Christina. We haven't seen a couple of them forever and Theo and Katie attract viewers! What can Susie and Kina bring to the table? I am so over the same people doing these challenges. They really need to mix it up. It's the same thing... just a different challenge. Overall, good idea... but missing the core requirement - An interesting cast!

Anonymous said...

Vote Veronica, the girl duel/challenges or whatever you want to call them are always more interesting. It will make great tv even though i want her to stay.

Anonymous said...

I voted Shane because I like Veronica better. EVEN THOUGH I like both of them A LOT.

Good show but...

Worst. Host. Ever!

I (moves hands) think (moves hands) he (moves hands) talks (moves hands) too much (moves hands) with (moves hands) his hands (moves hands).

I think Susie is retarded. She's witnessed first hand how awful Kina is when she has a group to attack someone and she wants to support her? What happens if Veronica leaves? Susie gets her ass sent in, that's what.

Anonymous said...

The only reason to watch is for Veronica, queen vixen. If she stays, it should be for a good show. I would love to see her and Kina battle. Kina is nothing but a "Veronicawannabe"-Go Veronica, represent Chica!!!!

Anonymous said...

This is classic alliancing.

Alliance One: Adam, Susie, Kina
Alliance Two: Shane, Veronica
Abe is a floater

Adam, Susie, and Kina had the numbers. The pit crewer that comes in, needs to get Abe on their side in order to break up Alliance One.

Really simple game theory. Especially since ALLIANCES WILL NEVER CHANGE IN THIS GAME.

Although I would love to see Veronica turn on the cast.

This show could have been more interesting, had the pit crew been past road ruler all stars such as
Katie, Emily, Chadwick, etc...

Adam is an all star how?
Same with Kina she was eliminated during her season...for being a dumbass and suggesting a name pull out of a hat...

what i dont get is how they are supposed to reveal "Strategy" when everyone goes home and watches the show...no one can speak freely in the confessionals knowing all your competition sees it

Anonymous said...

could anyone please give me a brief summary of tonight episode? I completely missed it! :(
also, who got voted off, voted in, and who fought?

Veronica said...

Something's haven't changed. Veronica's still a coniving bee-yotch and Shane's her little minion.

Anonymous said...

I think Veronica really was going to try to play a clean game. Hopefully she won't now.

Rican said...

i think this new concept is pretty interesting! Do you guys think that the guys that throughout the whole season stay in the pit and are not chosen to go in the rv would be elligible to participate in challenges?

Anonymous said...

veronica and shane are the two people who need to stay. kina is horrible, and i refuse to let her power-trip go unchecked. susie is a mess. abram and adam are thankfully more tolerable than their respective seasons, but shane still deserves to be there.

There's a summary up on the main page.

Does anyone know where I can get Road Rules Xtreme. Any stores?
Other seasons would be cool too like SAS Or CC but I wonna see Xtreme because Of Derrick


Yeah, I have them on dvd. Hit me up on Speak Reality Forum.

I really like the show but I'm mainly watching for Veronica. The way the rules are set up Adam, Kina, Susie and Abe have nothing to worry about. They can continue to vote off Veronica and Shane and whichever Pit Crew members win in the Pit. Pretty crafty of them!

Unless they turn on one another, they will always be on the show.

Anonymous said...

*comming from someone who hasnt seen the episode yet*

Did anyone think that maybe after this, maybe, just maybe, that Kina/Susie/Adam/Abe will all have their time to be voted in? I mean what if Veronica and Shane were just the first 2 to go in?

again I havent seen the confessionals or anything but just throwing that out there

Anonymous said...

Veronica is the whole show. Can you imagine how boring a show with Susie, Kina, random new girl, and Adam would be? Abram is a little interesting, but Veronica is the only thing that's going to keep this season from sucking.

frobert65 said...

I just realized the only way to break up the alliance is for Veronica and Shane to throw a mission. That would cause two other people to be voted off with Veronica and Shane. Assuming of course that they make it back from the Pit.

I'll be interested to see if they try that.

Rocky Carmine said...

Its possible that Kina/Abram/Adam/Susie can last the whole game just voting the other two people in BUT.... if they lose two challenges in a row, they'll have to nominate 4 people, which could potentially ruin the entire alliance.

The hilltop in Malibu where they launched this season is THE SAME hilltop where Season 1 of RR launched and finished!! Going back to the roots.

Anonymous said...

ok everyone is voting for veronica to stay so if she goes in to elimination then its a lie that we pick who goes in........the question is who are u voting in to take out shane my pick is DAVE

Angie said...

Kina looks like jami gertz and is really annoying. i wish she'd get voted off. meanwhile, i think veronica should go. i want shane to stay

Anonymous said...

I picked Monte because I don't believe that he can beat Shane.

I voted for the girl that's always talking about her hair to go against Veronica.

Romeo said...

VOTE SHANE
VOTE DAN

DAN will take out SHANE

VERONICA and DAN go back to the RV

If they lose next week, I think they have to vote two guys and two girls to face off with the pit crew.. in that case it would be one girl and one guy

If they win then since DAN is already cautious of VERONICA, the guys will vote VERONICA, and the girls will most likely vote DAN in.

my two cents...
and I like this road rules...it's better the the real world right now

Anonymous said...

It needs to go back to the old style of road rules, once the cast is on the rv they're stuck with each other through all the missions (unless a fight breaks out). No voting people out, no new people in. If they can't get along well they don't win the challenges and they lose money to buy food with for the week like it used to be. Also the roadmaster is horrible, could they find anyone cheesier than his piece of crap.

Anonymous said...

Wasn't that the same cliff in Malibu where Road Rules Season 1 began/ended?

Anonymous said...

I liked it. I just would like to see where this go before I make any final decisions. Did anyone notice in the begining with the Vet Interview that they mest up the Season numbers with Kina and Abram? I hope road rules wont always be like this

Anonymous said...

Personally, I feel that this entire season of Road Rules is a farce. Are we really expected to believe that half of these people actually received the most number of votes out of the entire Road Rules Casts? Please. In addition, I don't think anyones votes online will count, as producers have already determined who will go into the Pit, and who will challange them. Of course they will keep Veronica on the show, because she stirs up trouble. They will put Shane in with someone who can definately beat him, because, really now, it would be a boring show if all the people who started on the RV stayed on the RV. MTV thinks the mass public is stupid, but we're on to you...especially since half the country is not even given a chance to vote. Get Real.

Anonymous said...

I know they are trying to spice things up with Road rules but I think it is just plain BORING. Get rid of road rules and real world and just have challenges. I think that is what everyone loves and have them be a hour long!

Anonymous said...

This season is not going to be even half as good as any other. They are not an interesting bunch of people. They should have got all new cast and did it like the old ones.

Anonymous said...

Okay, first of all let me start by saying that I really like Kina. She does take the challenges (and apparently RR) very seriously but I think that probably comes from her bad history with the game.

On her original season she decided to play fair and draw names out of a hat even though everyone else would have gladly voted out Jodi. And as far as I could tell Kina was the strongest competitor there so it sucked that her wanting to 'play nice' got her sent home when she didn't deserve it.

Then on battle of the sexes 2 everyone (including Veronica, by the way) voted out Kina, who was clearly a better competitor then Ibis. And if you actually watch the challenge you see Kina sitting there telling someone that she doesn't believe anyone has any alliances... which she was clearly wrong about.

So then she comes back on the Guantlet II and all of the sudden she had all of these people on her side and I think that she realized that you can't win at any of these things by playing fair, so if you play fair then you get screwed. And even I admit she was a little psycho on that season but I think that all came from not wanting to get sent home early for a third time.

So now Kina gets a second chance to complete an experience that she was robbed of the first time around and people get all pissed off because she did what she had to do to stay in the game. And people defend Veronica and Shane even though no one heard their votes... but you can almost bet they would have been for Kina and Adam. Veronica and Shane would have totally played the game that way if they would have had the opportunity... but they didn't.

And, yes, there is a potential for Kina/Adam/Abe/Susie to just vote the odd players out in every time but you can bet that if Veronica gets sent to the pit crew she'll probably form and alliance with all of them and convince them to throw two missions so that four people, including two of the people in the alliance have to go in. So that wouldn't be a smart way to play. Kina, Adam, Abe and Susie are going to at least have to give the appearance of playing fair if they don't want to ruin everyone's time. And who's to say that they're not going to be fair next time... you don't know.

Plus, I have to add, that Kina is probably the most capable of all three of the girls. Veronica is fearless but she's not nearly as athletic as Kina is. Susie is a decent competitor but she tends to crack under pressure. Having watched a lot of these challenges I don't ever remember doing anything and sucking at it. Even in that infamous duel with Svetlana she wasn't bad, she just didn't have the right strategy and it really hurt her in the end.

Anonymous said...

Kina is not athletic. She's loud and has big hair. She's obnoxious, self-righteous, smug and stupid (cardiac "duress"?).

If "Road Rules" dropped the whole game element and were more of a documentary like it used to be, it'd be good.

Anonymous said...

I really don't get the rules...
So if one of the alumni lose...
do they go back in the pit??

Or are they sent home for good??

Anonymous said...

They are sent into the Pit Crew where we can vote them back in...

Although I wish RR was back to the way it was you work with what you have and I think BMP did a good job with what they had to work with. I thought it would suck and it really wasnt as bad as I thought it would be....Although it the Pit Crew members begin to take on the RV, I may stop wanting to watch... Camera whores, all of them... I hope the vets kick all their asses

Anonymous said...

Honestly I think that a lot of the pit crew members are going to have a hard time in the pit, at least in the beginning. Have you ever noticed how almost everyone seems to have such a hard time in the elimination round the first time that they do it but after they've done it a million times (like Svetlana in the Duel)it seems like it's suddenly not that hard for them? In this aspect I think that Kina probably has the best advantage, because at least she knows a lot about how these things work and how to quickly develop a strategy..

I know for a fact that Susie has never been in the elimination round and I think that Adam has only been in once. Not sure about Shane or Abe. I also know that Veronica has only been into an elimination once (where she kicked Jodi's ass when she fell on toilet paper and I nearly died laughing) but I think that Veronica has been in so many challenges that she'll be able to pull through. And, to top that off, all of the veterans have done at least one challenge before so they are all way better versed at this stuff then the pit crew. I think in the beginning the veterans will probably kick ass most every time (unless there is someone like Svets hidden in there somewhere).

Also I think that the only reason there are new people on this show is due to the fact that, although the challenges ARE called Real World/Road Rules Challenge for the past two years they've been getting a healthy dose of new Real Worlders but since there was no Road Rules it started to be uneven (thus came fresh meat and now Viewer's Revenge).

I HATE this season already. It's suppose to be ROAD RULES, NOT the Duel, the Gauntlet, the Inferno, Survivor, or Fear Factor! A number of things are wrong with this supposed Road Rules revival. 1)There are too many "rules" to begin with. 2) That constantly revolving door of castmembers crap has always failed to let the audience connect with anyone (particularly the newer "roadies") because they're voted off quicker than we can say "Nice to meet ya!" 3) That RoadMaster sh*t sucked the first time they tried it (i.e. Season 9: Maximum Velocity Tour) & now the new host seems even more irritating than the weird reincarnated Max Headroom guy. Uhh, regular clue cards would've sufficed. 4) The Pit Crew is totally cheesy, a waste of time & production money. 5) Lastly, the missions are waaaay too elaborate! Whatever happened to the SIMPLISTIC nature of this show? 6 folks, a cool RV, living, learning, farting, fighting, and facing fears TOGETHER throughout their three month trek. Sometimes its the BASIC struggles & conflicts that make for great TV, ya know. You don't necessarily have to be dangling 50ft. above a pool in a car on a bungee chord. That was all so ridiculously unecessary & un-interesing.--And to think I actually use to LOVE this show! It use to be FUN & it was the perfect compliment to the Real World. Now, I think both shows have run their course. The producers, casts, and everything else about these shows SUCK. Sorry Road Rules, but R.I.P Seasons 1-10. You were the best! P.S. Can somebody tell me why the producers feel it prudent to flash the missions (both on Challenges & RR) while the rules are being explained & before anybody has begun to do anything? I mean, do they think the audience is THAT stupid that we can't either figure out what's going to happen or (here's a novel idea)just WATCH IT AS IT HAPPENS? What's up with that? Also, an even better idea for this revamped Road Rules season would've been to get some of the original casts back together & have them complete new missions. I know, granted that many have "grown up" & moved beyond their time on RR you may not get the full Latin America or Semester @ Sea casts, but hey, it'd be a step in the right direction!--And who wouldn't like to see how Abe & Gladys would respond to each other the second time around?

Anonymous said...

i actually thought the mission was cool...and besides, isn't the first mission always elaborate, like season 1 was skydiving and than you have northern trail bungee jumping off a bridge. i mean, that's classic road rules. it's a way to show the cast what to expect. the only thing i hate is the voting off concept and not getting 6 real people into the rv. i'm sorry but pit crew members all seem attention hungry---especially david.

Anonymous said...

my belief is that shane is gonna go into the pit against monte...if you look at the road rules viewers revenge website and read jerrys blog he kind of hints to a possibility that monte will be going to the pit when he says "monte, hold it down"....i guess the pit crew already found out the results and that the pit competition isnt going down live.,..

Rachel will see when Veronica stabs her in the back too. And she will eventually. Rachel better watch the money in their clothing business. Veronica is a clepto.

You people are so fucking annoying! Can you guys ever be happy? Who gives a shit if it is like a challenge? Who cares if it is different then the old Road Rules? Just be happy for once! There is just always something you guys got to complain about. Stupid kids.

Anonymous said...

My belief is that this season is meant to re-launch Road Rules and that if more seasons follow they won't be like this one. After all, the reason Road Rules was cancelled was due to the fact that Bunim/Murray thought it was competing with Real World for ratings. And this show could definitely be considered a competitor with the challenges.

I think that they did this season Challenge style because they know that this style works and because RR has been gone since '04. I think (hope) that this will be the only season like this and that they're only doing it this way to get people interested again.

After all the prizes and money in the challenges are much better and on the challenges they get to live in awesome houses so I don't think that former Road Rulers would want to waste their time doing these things every season instead of challenges.

I think that if we all just keep watching this season and keep ratings up we may just see a return to the old Road Rules format that we all know and love
