Do what you want, MTV, but I still miss Road Rules more than any of these shows.
It's just understood that Aviva and Teresa are two of the worst human beings on the planet at this point, but we've left them off the list (for now!) to make room for other terrible people.
We really hate when people waste our time.
Does anyone else have that "On Top of Spaghetti" song in their head after Deena's solo drinking day? Until she finds a partner, we'll look at the people who were truly awful this week and not just merely sad and pathetic.
It's a new season of the addictive MTV reality-competition series The Challenge, and while some installments falter because there just isn't enough in-fighting and drama, Battle of the Exes doesn't look like it will have that problem. Jam-packed with personal chaos, hard challenges and beautiful scenery, the show has always mixed the best elements of The Amazing Race, Survivor and Bachelor Pad together. But we have particularly high hopes for this Battle after seeing the premiere. Here's why:
The Jersey Shore kids don't know which city they're actually in, but a lack of geography knowledge isn't the most reprehensible thing they've ever done, so that's two weeks in a row where they aren't the most disgusting people on the reality planet. That's got to be some kind of record. Here's who did make the list:
Naked people and commies are all up in today's news.
This week saw the beginning of a new season of LA Ink, and while we really, really, really wanted to put Kat Von D on this list for everything that's going on outside of the show, not to mention the fact she got a picture of Jesse James (as a child!) tattooed on her, she was actually really sweet in this episode. It's still a bad idea to get someone's face permanently put on your skin (particularly given what has unfolded since) but she was cute with that little hairless cat and the woman with the dead daughter and that sad girl she inexplicably took in. She may make awful life decisions, but she does them from a good place, so she gets a pass this week. The others on this list... not so much.
We're glad that The Challenge finally dumped the clunky Real World/Road Rules portion of its name, especially considering that Road Rules hasn't even been on the air in years and a large portion of the current crop of competitors came from the previous Fresh Meat season. But we don't think the change goes far enough. Instead of adding nobodies to the mix every few years, MTV should open up the show to stars from its many other hit programs. Here's who we'd pick, for starters:
