Jenn Blows Up at Laurel on 'The Challenge: Rivals' Reunion (VIDEO)

Because you demanded it -- Why would you do that? -- the cast of 'The Challenge: Rivals' (Wed., 10PM ET on MTV) was back for a reunion sit-down with Maria Menounos so they could yell at each other some more. Why has this become a staple of these reality shows? We get that it's sometimes nice to see where things stand now, but these shows never really get into that. Instead, they rehash old beef and try to stir up drama to milk another week of ratings out of whatever reality hit spawned them. Considering this season of 'The Challenge' had conflict built in to the 'Rivals' format, it was inevitable that some fighting would ensue, and Jenn was determined not to let the viewers down, so she lit into Laurel, who stayed calm and aloof throughout the whole encounter.

'The Challenge: Rivals' Ends With a Brutal Two-Day Challenge (VIDEO)

In what looks like the final episode for the series that began as 'The Real World/Road Rules Challenge,' the producers came up with one of the most brutal single challenges in the history of any reality competition show. It was so intense, two of the six remaining teams didn't even finish 'The Challenge: Rivals' (Wed., 10PM ET on MTV). The two day marathon first decided that the teams were going to have to carry a rock the rest of the race. They then had a three mile hike, had to memorize a camp site set-up, transfer a pile of dirt from one location to another, cross a marshy mess and then recreate that camp they saw before.

The Debauchery Begins on 'The Challenge: Rivals' (VIDEO)

Things reached breaking point for the contestants on 'The Challenge: Rivals' (Wed., 10PM ET on MTV) and spiralled down into filth. Literally. The debauchery that broke out in the house is a familar sight for fans of the long-running reality show. It's like at a certain point, after being cooped up for so long, everyone loses their minds. And their clothes. And their dignity. Amid the booze, brawls, boobs and butts, Tyler just happened to lose all of his clothes somehow, and someone pooped in Cara Maria's bed. How lovely.

Cara Maria Delights in Making Jenn Angry on 'The Challenge: Rivals' (VIDEO)

Apparently, sleeping with Adam is a big deal on 'The Challenge: Rivals' (Wed., 10PM ET on MTV). It was enough to cause Jenn to lose her mind on Cara Maria when she was accused of sleeping with him. "I'm beyond heated!" she said, when someone suggested Cara Maria wasn't worth the effort. But if these kids could keep cooler heads, they wouldn't even be on this show. Later, the two were able to talk without screaming, but even then Cara Maria knew how to get under Jenn's skin, and clearly delighted in doing so. Jenn tried to keep her cool, but when Cara Maria said Jenn would sabotage herself in the game if she drank enough, that was it.

Evan Throws a Challenge, So Nehemia Throws a Life Jacket at Him on 'The Challenge' (VIDEO)

Nehemiah didn't take it too well when he found out Evan intentionally threw a challenge to get sent to the jungle on 'The Challenge: Rivals' (Wed., 10PM ET on MTV). These two don't like each other to begin with, so pairing them up for this asking-for-trouble season of 'The Challenge,' was just putting more fuel on the fire. Add to that Evan's cavalier attitude. "If I could do anything to Evan, I probably would have drowned him as soon as we made that fall and sent him home in a box," Nehemiah said.
