This fifth season of the challenge had a refreshing change by bringing out a much larger cast with some returning players for the first time from the first 4 seasons. Now legendary WWE wrestler Mike "The Miz" Mizanin steps into the challenge arena for the first time and gives an impressive performance throughout the whole season becoming one of the shows stronger real world players and forming a friendly rivalry with future podcast host Theo Vonkurnatowski who becomes one of the stronger road rules competitors. This is also the first season people start getting voted off and eliminated from the game which causes a significant amount of drama throughout the season. Beth "Osama Beth Laden" Stolarczyk returns just to be voted off first which brings the others great joy. Another first for this season was having two official co-hosts who were each the original cast member from each show, Eric Nies from The Real World and Mark Long from Road Rules. This one is worth the watch it really feels like the show's first official season where it got Real.
