NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

The Challenge, formerly known as Real World/Road Rules Challenge, is a reality competition that airs on MTV. It started out as a crossover series of MTV's popular The Real World and Road Rules series, pitting former cast members of those shows against one another in different types of physical events. Starting in 2005, due to a hiatus for Road Rules, cast members were brought in from other places. This led to the show being renamed to The Challenge in 2010.
