For those of you that are cool enough out there, you would have heard of the Television channel MTV. Now we all know that this station used to actually have music on it, but no all it has is trash about little girls getting pregnant and snooki and her jersey shore crew.
However there is still one saving grace for the channel and that is
The Real World.
Some of you may also remember a show back in the day called Road Rules which was incredible. But the best ever and what this post is about, is the Real World and Road Rules Challenge,(now just called the Challenge).
Basically ex castmates from the TV shows are grouped together, live in a house with each other, obviously leading to crazy drunken parties and fights, and then compete against each other in competitions for Money. Each week players are eliminated until the final episode where the winners split the prize money of their team.
This year for the 1st time, Myself and 6 other friends have gotten together to have a fantasy Draft for the this years season. This season is called Rivals, where each team of 2 members are 2 people that have previous history hating each other and sometimes have eaten gotten into physical fights with each other.
Here are the Cast members and their partners
Adam King - Chris "C.T." Tamburello
Adam Royer - Leroy Garrett
Aneesa Ferreira - Robin Hibbard
Brandon Nelson - Ty Ruff

The Draft Results
With the first pick ZShack took the one and only Wes, no big surprise here
followed by DJ taking his partner Kenny.
the Raabit then took a surprising third with Johnny Bananas letting Budders Grab Evan at the 4th spot.
The biggest surprise of the whole draft came next when JMG decided to take Leroy from this past seasons real World Las Vegas with her first pick. (I hope it pays off, but just know that it wont)
I was able to grab my personal favorite next with Jenn at pick #6 and Lippy rounded out the first round the biggest man to ever play the competition in CT. not sure ho he slipped all the way to you, makes no sense but great job.
In the 2nd round of the snake draft lippy grabbed top dog Laurel and I went with a lil curve ball with Paula.
The big sleepers I give credit to DJ Bickel for somehow managing to grab Evelyn with the 13th pick and then Cara maria with 16. you made out like a bandit.
Here are the final team results
Zshack - Wes, Sarah, Camila, Davis
DJ - Kenny, evelyn, Cara Maria, Robin
Raabit - Johnny, Aneesa, Adam R., Katelyn
Budders - Evan, Tyler, Mandi, Jonna
JMG! - Leroy, Ty, Theresa, Tyrie
C-Dog - Jenn, Paula, Nehemia, Adam K.
Lippy - CT, Laurel, Jasmine, Brandon
