I got the latest issue of TV Guide, and the latest seasons of The Real World starts in late June. Have there been any rumblings on a new Challenge, format, players, etc?

Lantern7, ask and ye shall receive.

Vevmo has just posted the cast list and format (well kind of) of the newest challenge.

I have to say, I'm pumped. Lots of surprises and breaths of fresh air.

I'm sorry . . .
Spoiler
Weren't there contracts signed in Geneva to prevent that bitch from ever doing another reality show? As usual, everybody needs a beating . . . though the idea of seeing
Spoiler
and
Spoiler
looks promising. Cue Jeff Goldblum: "First there's 'oooh' and 'ahhhh,' but then there's running . . . and screaming."

I was going to post here anyway . . . I was watching South Park, and there were pop-up ads . . . and it turns out a certain Louisianan swamp rat is getting a half hour on Friday at 11 p.m. Dunno if I'd watch or not . . . even though I hate Derrick these days, I still kinda want Wee Dee to beat the shit out of Theo for his parting words after Fresh Meat.

Spoiler
and
Spoiler
? It's gonna be a bloodbath, even with
Spoiler
. . . at least according to the first report.

I think a big, group thanks is owed to both Janelle and Svetlana for being the sole reasons we won't be watching Johnny, Tyler, OR Paula next season. I never thought I could love either of them as much as I do now.

Love the cast, hands down the best in years.

I assume they are going to be split into pairs somehow. Since the last challenge was co-ed (mostly), I wouldn't be surprised if this one went back to guys vs guys and girls vs girls. If that's the case then I predict

From Theo's commercial: How religious was his household when he was a kid? Anytime he masturbated, his parents made him bury it in the yard. Okay . . . that was funny. Anything beyond the tired K-Fed routines from a few years back, and maybe he'll be tolerable. However, I think an A-plus grade can only be acheived if James comes out of nowhere, and the bromance-before-bromances make out for at least three minutes.

I have to say that I like the idea of
Spoiler
, as opposed to
Spoiler
. I'm still dreading the usual suspects will make an appearance . . . like a

On the other hand: a dream scenario where
Spoiler
gets hurt, and

. I can dream, yes?

You and me both, I have not watched a Real World season since Brooklyn so I am very out of the loop in regards to the newer people.

It really is about time the producers decided to double dip with the
Spoiler
format. That was one of their better seasons (it actually holds up pretty well years later, unlike some of the later ones) and I think many remember it fondly. That said, I can't say I'm thrilled with the cast, especially considering I haven't been keeping up with RW as much as I used to. I did watch all of
Spoiler
though, so I'm rooting for them.

Just saw on Twitter, Diem says her doctors told her the cancer is back. Anyone who's been around here knows I've never liked her as a Challenge personality, but this is one of those things that transcends that. Cancer is evil, nasty shit. I hope she beats it again.

I've always found her annoying, but she doesn't deserve to have cancer, especially not twice.
She's a strong girl, and I hope she pulls through and beats it.

Damn. Poor Diem. I think we need to do two things:

1. Invent a device that can shrink matter to microscopic size.
2. Find CT

It would be the climax of the complex CT/Diem relationship . . . like Fantastic Voyage, only with more alcohol, and CT screaming about how he's going to "work" cancer cells.

So . . . any definite news as to how many teams are in this season?

So, so sad about Diem. As others have already mentioned, she's never been a favorite of mine, but I would never wish cancer on anyone. She's a tough girl and I'm sure she'll pull through this bout with it just as she did the last.

Wishing Diem the best. I agree, whether or not I like her a person, cancer is a horrible disease and no one deserves to have to go through it once, let alone multiple times.

Wow, that is awful news for Diem. She has never been my fav on these shows, but she is so young to be going through this a second time- and I would imagine this would be very close to her 5 year remission mark, if she hadn't passed that already.

Very sorry to hear about Diem. Here's hoping everything turns out okay! She's a strong girl though, definitely.

Also, a bit of spoilery news, the first elimination appears to have taken place:

Diem has a big two-page article in this week's US magazine. She said that she hasn't talked to CT recently but that his mother wrote her a very nice letter when she heard the cancer had returned.

Wait, can I ask what happened there? Not that I will miss Paula, Tyler or especially Johnny, but I haven't heard anything (this side of Tonya's lawsuit of course). Thanks!
