"Meet the cast of MTV's The Challenge: Battle of the Seasons"

We may have two more weeks of The Real World before the time slot can be freed up to once again bring us the salacious goodness that is The Challenge, but that doesn't mean we can't look ahead to what excites us most about this fall's reality TV offerings, right? ... [MORE]
