What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

This was possibly the best version of the Real World/Road Rules Challenge. Pitting the men vs. the women, it had the moments that would make it infamous (Puck spitting on David BEFORE the show even started, cat fights, and even a wedding).

This was the Golden Age of MTV reality TV because at this point it was still about the people interacting and not just about getting drunk and partying.

The men, being men, took emotions out the equation and decided that the lowest man on the points board would be eliminated - leaving the strongest men left for the finale. The women, bringing emotions into the equation, didn't do that early on and it hurt them causing rifts within the team.

All in all, this was an excellent season of competition and is a must watch for "Challenge" fans.
