The Challenge: Free Agents


The Challenge (originally known as Road Rules: All Stars, followed by Real World/Road Rules Challenge) is a reality game show on MTV that is spun off from and mostly cast-contestant dependent on the network's two flagship reality shows, The Real World and the now cancelled Road Rules. The Challenge has developed a spin-off series in its own right, Spring Break Challenge. The Challenge and Spring Break Challenge have a somewhat cast-contestant interdependent relationship in that both programs have used at least one or more contestants from the other. The Challenge is hosted by T. J. Lavin.

Imagine being offered a life-changing amount of money. But the only way to get it is to work with someone who has backstabbed you... Or tormented you... Or defeated you... Or humiliated you... Your biggest enemy!

This season on Rivals II, 32 of the most dynamic Challenge competitors ever will enter the tropical depths of exotic Thailand, only to be paired up with their biggest adversary. These sworn enemies must figure out a way to get over their bad blood and work together in order to earn a share of the massive $350,000 prize!

Not only will these teammates need to work through their own issues, but they will also have to battle their competition in a series of heart-pounding challenges. Here's how it works: there will be male challenge days and female challenge days. After each challenge, the winning team will be safe from elimination. However, the last-place team will be forced to compete in the Jungle, the battleground for a mentally and physically severe elimination round. Then, their fellow competitors will publically vote on the team that will go into the Jungle against them. And this time around, an unprecedented twist to the voting system will send shockwaves through the entire game. These two unlucky Jungle-bound teams will then battle for survival. The winners will get to stay in the game and compete for fortune and glory. However, the losers will be sent home with absolutely nothing. The only way to get a cut of the cash is to make it to the very end and compete in an epic final challenge.

With $350,000 on the line, things are certain to get ugly. Some teams may attempt to put their painful past behind them, while others will struggle to deal with their rocky history. These rivals will push themselves -- and each other -- past their breaking points, sparking new feuds that will erupt both on and off the field. Tempers will flare, fists will be raised, and hearts will be on the line -- as there have never been as many steamy hook-ups or controversial romances as there are this season! Those who can last until the end will compete in a shocking finale unlike anything they've ever seen or expected, in the final race to determine which male and female team will claim the first place prize and be crowned champions of Rivals II.

11x14: Mac-Beth recap: The Veterans are still upset with Beth and her performance and Aneesa is talking with Julie that they need to get rid of Beth. Beth over hears Aneesa and confronts her and Aneesa could really care less and the two get into it again. Later, Julie talks to Beth and Beth says there is no way she is going home. The teams head to their next mission where they will need to pair up in teams of two and climb up to a platform above water. Trick is the platform moves and they will need to switch sides and move to the ladder on the opposite side and climb down. The teams have 10 minutes to complete it or they will be given the maximum ten minutes which they will also get if they are disqualified. The rookies are up first and end up with three teams being either disqualified or not able to complete the challenge including Kina who is devastated. The Veterans are up next and also end up with three ten minutes penalty's but they believe their two teams that finished the course were faster then the Rookies and are celebrating which leaves the Rookies depleted. Kina worries about who she will pick for the Gauntlet before the winner is announced. They meet up in front of TJ where TJ give the Vets time as just over 36 minutes then gives the Rookies time of just over 33 minutes. The Veterans are shocked and the Rookies are surprised by the win. The Vets then realize that maybe losing isn't such a bad thing because they can hopefully get rid of Beth at the Gauntlet, who was once again less then stellar during the mission failing to barely get herself out of the water. At the deliberation Aneesa is chosen to go against Beth and TJ spins the wheel and Aneesa is hoping for "Beach Brawl" and it lands on it and Aneesa goes crazy and Beth looks terrified. At the Gauntlet Beth comes out wearing jeans and Aneesa is still pumped to take out Beth but Beth tells TJ she is not competing. TJ is disappointed and asks why she didn't quit when he asked all the quitters to quit. Beth says she can't rub oil on herself and fight someone that it goes against her morals... read more.
