Is it sad that I literally have this date marked on my calendar?!
The next incarnation of MTV’s The Challenge starts next month! This has long been one of The Ashley‘s favorite crappy reality shows, and, from the looks of the new trailer, it’s going to be a fantastic season!
Here’s what we know so far: this season will be “Rivals II,” in which cast members must pair with the people they hate most (their ex-boyfriend, the person they got into an argument with, etc.) and compete against other teams of people who hate each other. The season was filmed in Thailand, and will be hosted by TJ Lavin.
Here’s who MTV is bringing to the party this season:
CT who will be teamed with everyone’s favorite whiner, Wes (I don’t remember them hating each other but, then again, everyone hates Wes!)
Jordan and Marlon: They got into some nasty fights on ‘Real World: Portland.”
Knight and Preston: These guys have clashed since their ‘Real World: New Orleans’ days.
Zach and Trey: These two have hated each other since ‘Battle of the Seasons.’ According to MTV, “they even blocked each other on Twitter”—oooooh!
Dunbar and Tyrie: Apparently, Tyrie can’t stand Dunbar, even though Dunbar has no clue that Tyrie hates him.
Johnny Bananas and Frank: Both are blowhard loud-mouths that need to be hit in the face with a frying pan.
Derek and Rob: These two got into a physical fight last season, resulting in torn clothing and and a whole lot of douchey-ness.
Ty and Leroy: Apparently they’ve had some heated online fights since they last appeared on a season together.
Emily and Paula: These two dislike each other because Paula was hooking up with Emily’s ex, Ty. They frequently mocked each other. (Who could forget Emily”s “black face seen around the world?”)
Sarah and Trishelle: Sarah hates Trishelle (or “Trash-elle” as someone calls her in the trailer) because she was insisting that Sarah was only getting freaky with Alton on “Battle of the Seasons” to further her position in the game. (Both of these girls need to retire from these Challenges! And take Paula with them!)
Nany and Jonna: Ugh. I just…can’t with these girls.
Cooke and Naomi: Apparently Naomi thought Cooke was trying to steal her man on “Real World: Las Vegas”…or something.
Camila and Jemmye: They got into a nasty screaming match on “Battle of the Seasons.”
Anastasia and Jessica: Anastasia got straight bitchy on poor Jessica during ‘Real World: Portland’ and told her she didn’t want to be her friend.
Diem and Aneesa: How can anyone dislike Diem!? Apparently these two had a falling out after Aneesa went back on her word to not vote Diem out of a previous challenge.
Jasmine and Theresa: They once got into a fight that resulted in Jasmine shattering a mirror.
The new season start July 10! The Ashley can’t wait!
