Royal Rumble -
Last season on
"The Real World/Road Rules Challenge", we've seen the
Good win over the Evil. But this season we ask the all
important question, who kicks more a**...the veterans
or the rookies. 18 of each team will have to endure
not only the challenges, but the figurative
backstabbing and what not as they compete for $300,000
in cash and prizes in "The Gauntlet 2". Think of it as
the X-Games meets a soap opera of a twisted kind.
Let's start off by meeting these 18 Veterans...

The new cast arrives to Tobago, but they discover that
they've been dropped off in the middle of nowhere.
Right off the bat, the teams are divided into two
sub-teams one with all men and one with all women. The
first challenge of the season is called "Royal Rumble"
and they'll be battling their own teammates. This is
played like "Kind of the Hill" where the objective is
for each sub team to push each other off the floating
platform on the water until one is left standing. The
said player then is the captain for that sub-team
having one male and one female captains for each team
as a whole.
The male Rookies take the first heat with Alton
winning the title of Captain. The second heet sees the
Vet guys playing rounds of "Rock-Paper-Scissors" for
the elimination process. In the end Adam is the male
captain for the Vets.
In the third heat, the Rookie girls also use
"Rock-Paper-Scissors" to have Jo be the female captain
in the end. The final heat sees the Vet girls go at it
leaving Ruthie to be the female captain for the Vets.
The captains all receive a check for $1,000 from
Energizer and get their own room and a huge bed at a
gorgeous, clean house.
After the teams have been accustomed to their
temporary living quarters, they all go to the sunken
pirate ship which is the set-up for the Gauntlet. The
Gauntlet 2 consists of 15 challenges, each of them is
worth $10,000. On the weeks of play, there'll be Girl
Captain Days and Boy Captain Days. The team who loses
in a challenge must deliberate on who to go up against
their own team captain in The Gauntlet. The winner of
the game there gets to be the captain while the
runner-up goes home.
Later, the cast holds a huge birthday bash for Mark.
Everyone's having a good time, except for Jo, who sits
out in the car and complains to her father in England
on the phone. Upon her return to the house, she
discovers chocolate sauce all over her bedroom floor.
Then Jo loud snaps, announcing her desire to leave the
house. Well, this is going to be one totally insane
season! Another recap on next week's episode next
