February 4, 2002
We start off this season with the cast diving into Caba San Lucas...literally! Each of the castmates sky dive onto a beach where they greet their seasons partner. We have on Road Rules- *Timmy and Emily from Road Rules 2 *Chris and Belou from Road Rules Europe *Dan and Tara from Road Rules Northern Trail *Chadwick and Piggy from Road Rules Australia *Josh and Holly S. from Road Rules Latin America *Yes and Veronica from Road Rules Semester at Sea *Theo and Holly M. from Road Rules Maximum Velocity Tour *Adam and Jisela from Road Rules The Quest On Real World, we have- *Norman and Becky from Real World New York *Jon and Beth from Real World Los Angeles *Mike and Sharon from Real World London *Mike and Flora from Real World Miami *Sean and Elka from Real World Boston *Stephen and Lindsey from Real World Seattle *Danny and Kelley from Real World New Orleans *Mike and Coral from Real World Back 2 New York After all teams landed safely at the beach and changed out of their diving outfits, they are greeted by the hosts- Mark from Road Rules 1 Eric from Real World New York Mark and Eric explain the game by saying that each team will compete as their own. A team from both Real World and Road Rules will be eliminated after every mission. The team eliminated will be determined by the 3 highest scoring teams of their show(The Inner Circle). The teams will continue to compete until there are three teams on Real World and three teams on Road Rules. The 3 teams of Real World and the 3 teams of Road Rules will then go up against each other for the grand prize of $300,000 Chili Dollars. That's $50,000 each team member. The beach goes wild as they are all pumped to start competing. They are told their first mission will be tomorrow and to go relax, unpack, and enjoy their beach-front villas. The Road Rules team will all stay in one villa while the Real World will stay in another. Each team starts drinking and hanging out. We learn that Chadwick from RR6 married Holly M from RR9 after meeting her at her season's premiere party. We also learn that Belou has a 6-month old child that she brought to the challenge with her. We go on to see Norman asking Lindsey who he would like to see go first. She says she doesn't know and asks him and he says Osama "Beth" Laden. All while Beth is telling Sharon that he tried to sell his reality movie to her and she denied the request and he's been mad at her ever since. They received a message on their phone telling the teammates to meet at the club house for dinner. Belou freaks out saying her baby is asleep and she can't just wake her up to go to dinner. Holly and Emily wonder how they have to work as a team and yet still have to be against each other. Emily says it's gonna get ugly starting tomorrow after the first mission. And at another table, Coral and Stephen already get into a bickering match. At dinner, Mark and Eric tell them that they should be ready for their first mission at 9am tomorrow and wear a bathing suit. The following day, the teams awake and are pumped for the first mission, Bunim + Murray hire a local nanny to take care of Belou's baby during the missions. At breakfast, Lindsay and Kelley notice that the whole Road Rules team is buff while the Real World team seems to have no muscle what-so-ever. They arrive at a dock for their first mission where they see this apparatus hanging from a crane. Each team will hang on the same bar which are all hooked to the same hanger. If one team member falls the pole will tilt the opposite way causing the other team member to fall aswell. When a team falls, the whole apparatus swings causing the other teams to swing around and possibly fall. The last team hanging on will win a 2002 Fuel-Blast Motorcycle. They swim out to the apparatus and are lifted, not soon after they fall like flys until the last three teams hanging were all Road Rules- Chadwick & Piggy, Theo & Holly, and Timmy & Emily. They all seemed to drop at the same time, so Mark and Eric told them they will have to review the tape to see who lasted the longest and then they'll also find out who's in the Inner Circle and who's going home back at the hotel. Emily and Holly S discuss that they don't believe it's fair there is a married couple on seperate teams cause that is a alliance that cannot and will not be broken. They also believe that Chadwick and Holly M hold the upper-hand in this competition. And now knowing that Coral is most likely in the Inner Circle, Stephen went to appologize in hopes that she won't vote him off. They meet on the beach to find out that Theo and Holly won the competition by a split second and the Inner Circles are- Road Rules 1)Theo and Holly M from Road Rules Maximum Velocity Tour 2)Chadwick and Piggy from Road Rules Australia 3)Emily and Tim from Road Rules 2 Real World 1)Mike and Coral from Real World back 2 New York 2)Danny and Kelley from Real World New Orleans 3)Norman and Becky from Real World New York The Inner Circles are told to go off and are allowed one hour to determine what team will be going home that night. In the Real World circle, they all admit that this process sucks but they all decide that they want the strongest team. Mike and Sharon are the lowest scorer on their team but Sharon is so passionate about Real World winning that they might just keep them. In the Road Rules circle, they pick Chris and Belou as the weakest team. But Chadwick suggests picking the strongest team to send home since they can be a threat to break into the Inner Circle. Both teams come to a decision and at the elimination ceremony- Timmy delivers the news for Road Rules that Veronica and Yes are going home. Coral delivers the news for Real World that Jon and Beth are heading home. Road Rules is determined to get back at Chadwick for his actions setting the tone for this game to be ugly. They all swear to break up the married alliance. Jisela writes "Veronica and Yes- Here in Spirit" on the back of her shirt to show that revenge will be taken. The Voted off teams pack their bags and say their goodbyes. Real World have a meeting saying they believe what Road Rules did is foolish, thinking more about the individual teams then the team in whole. Meanwhile, Piggy pulls Chadwick aside and talks about how his and Holly's marriage can affect the game in a whole and her chances at winning. She says that they have to stay in the top three and if Holly was voted off, can he still be there for her as a team. He promises that she is his teammate and she comes first. Back at the Real World pow-wow, Sean suggests that the top three teams of Real World, if they win, kick back a portion of their winnings to the other Real World team eliminated prior. We end with Piggy saying that Chadwick and Holly M need to be split up!

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.
