Road Rules (Generic Thread)
I thought I strt a thread where everyone can discuss different Road Rules related stuff and just general discuss about the series.Yes I know it's cancelled. My favorite seasons X-Treme and Campus Crawl But some honorable mentions South Pacif,The Quest,Maximum Velocity Tour was good and Ayanna and Gladys. I never felt hat this had that great of a fan base to blow up especially after the huge changes after season 9 ,Also some FM i feel could be RR are Evan,Vinny,Theresa,and Diem Seaso 14 could have marked the return if the Pit cew were the ones on the RV getting replaced by Veterans I would of loved to see Ivory,Angel,Monte,Jerry,David as the starting cast.
Wasn't there plans around the time of RR14 to put some of the Fresh Meat on a Road Rules? I think I remember seeing that a few years ago.
Evan was asked to be a veteran but declined.Thats all I know

Blair(The Quest) Yes(Sememster at Sea) Antoine(Europe) Abram(South Pacific) Derrick(X-TREME) Eric(Campus Crawl Kefla(Austraila) Dan(Viewers Revenge) Dave(South Pacific) Tim(Second Adventure) I'll post the women later.

He annoyed me on his season, especially when he wouldn't leave Kendal alone on her birthday when she was hammered. Then he was all over Trishelle...smooth.
I love Ellen!!!!!!!!
I miss Road Rules I can't believe it couldn't survive I think the concept was better than the Real World, I think the hour format would work better for this show. To bad some real effort wasn't put into RR14 to save it.
[QUOTE=TheKorean;142827]How could you say Vinny & Theresa like you've ever seen them before?[/QUOTE] There my favorite based on all photos of the FM,honestly Theresa is the hottest(To me ) and Vinny9My favorite dude) as of now but it will probally change for the worse or better.

Road Rules will always be better than Real World, but that's just my opinion. :)

I agree... I think if they hadn't screwed with the concept after the 13th season it might still be on the air... but they had to compete with themselves, they went all crazy with the challenge that they had to compare it... if anything Viewer's Revenge felt like another challenge concept didn't it?? But anyways, if you haven't seen the show, I recommend watching Islands, Northern Trail, Down Under and Latin America. Those four are the EPITOME of what the Road Rules concept is all about. South Pacific is extremely good too even having the voting-off rule. All time favorite road rulers are Kalle, Vince, Dan, Josh, Holly (7), Susie and Shayne. Classic. There's also this really cool youtube tribute about the show; [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJzZJZS6z-g]YouTube - 14 Seasons of Road Rules[/url]
VR felt like FM2.
Semester At Sea is one of my favorites. Ayanna and the whole voodoo deal and the Veronica/Ayanna scream match were classic. The Quest is my favorite season that had to do with the whole vote off concept. But I'll say Semester At Sea is my favorite season of the whole series.
I miss Road Rules so much!

3:55 always gets me..lmfao.
That video made me really sad what a great show, now we have The Hills & Jersey Shore :( what a shame. Come on BMP atleast get me a series DVD haha.
yeah bring it back damn MTV it was arguably the best show they ever made and they treated it horrible both the network and the producers they took a great adventure which was cancelled then when they get a chance to bring it back they totally change it into a horrible remake of the challenge if they hadn't done the pit thing but kept the original voting system, which although I didn't like it it was part of the show at that point, they still would have gotten a few new kids in it with the amount of times the rodies lost and it would have been much better and we could have even voted in the replacements based on the pit stops and online videos that the crew made which would have made it better and more watched imo
They should have made VR a Road Rules All-Stars with the previpus Road Rulers.

^actually since there is no period there is no actual end so the tirade is one sentance part. Which doesn't make it any less right
Not only was the pit a disaster of an idea. It was executed extremely poorly in that they only showed highlights of it on the show and instead they should have showed the whole pit. As is now the case the face off is pretty much the most important thing and they totally ignored it.

I recently e-mailed Chuck Larsen, the president of October Moon (the company that redistributed 'Road Rules' in syndication) and he says; "Road Rules is owned by MTV Networks. We no longer have distribution rights to the series." So this could mean that we will never see the show on television ever again unless MTV plans to sell the rights to redistribute the show again.
is it bad that I hope FM2 does bad in ratings so that MTV decides to resurect Road Rules not bad enough to have the Challenge cancelled but just bad enough that MTV never wants to risk another one
It seems like a lot of people love Road Rules but I never liked it. Except for The Quest, I have always liked Real World MUCH better! If Road Rules were still around and The Real World wasn't then I think that everyone would say that they always liked The Real World more.

I dont see at all why Road Rules has not already been resurrected in its original format... They seriously are running out of ideas for the challenge... Road Rules is a steady format and doesn't take much thought or creativity to re-produce... not to the point where it's getting ridiculous at least. At least Road Rules will bring fresh faces every season FOR the challenge, that way the challenge continues to stay fresh.
I think one of the main promblems is money. They spend three-four months abroad except for 4 seasons and the cost of airfair and everthing is alot of money.Yes the challanges go abroad but its only for a few weeks and they have a steady home,,While the roadies sleep in hotels and RV sites.I would have loved to see a RR season in Canada,Italy and Japan by itself would have been amazing.To me I loved RR better only cause the diversity.
As much as we want to see Road Rules return, I think it is dead and gone...

I loved when Tina came on RR12. She was so sassy.
