At the final female elimination of Rivals 1 Jonna and Jasmine vs Laurel and Cara Maria in blastoff, WHAT IF Jonna was facing Cara and Jasmine was facing Laurel instead of vise versa!??!????

nothing different. lol

Yeah Laurel by herself could have won that lol

Jasmine and Jonna were never going to finish the final regardless lol. Imagine jasmine in the hardest final ever 

If jasmine was going to win a final Her  best shot was BOTS. I can see Jonna winning a different season, but that was jasmines biggest opportunity.

gauntlet 2 was a pretty decent cast in my opinion. wish they brought in a rookie female to replace Jo after her meltdown. The rookies team was pretty stacked in my opinion. as well as the vets.

They supposedly tried to replace Jo but couldn't get anyone.  I also liked the G2 cast but production had a ton of trouble getting people--especially the women the wanted because certain people refused to go if others were going.  They didn't want 4 girls from RR-Xtreme or Montana They likely didn't want Jisela or Cameran since apparently everyone knew they were both going to quit early on.  They even had to make Jamie Murray a rookie because they didn't have enough guys and just hoped people would forgot about Extreme Challenge.  Pretty sure they added David Burns late and switched Jamie to the rookies team. 

They also desperately wanted most of the Austin cast (everyone but Lacey) kind of like how they wanted the entire Vegas cast for the first Battle of the Seasons but it started too close to their season ending and they weren't interested.

All that said, I would love if casting continued like that--solid mix of newbies & veterans...they were just missing Veronica, Coral, Abram & others  which pissed them off....hence Fresh Meat....people they knew would say yes moving forward

I remember my teenage self wondering why suddenly Veronica, Abe, and Coral stopped doing challenges after the Inferno 2. 

Of all challenges they had trouble casting and those regulars couldn't show up.

I would think after Gauntlet 2 production would change their approach in casting and take more chances but I guess not.

I was glad they didn't show up on G2. I was starting to get sick of alot of the regulars and wanted something different. Good thing G2 happened.

but then it was followed up by the start of the non castmembers era lol. 

Gauntlet 2 had an amazing cast regardless. You don't see mtv casting 30+ people anymore and that was the last true RW/RR challenge.

Montana was the WORST on G2. I hate her so much lol

Larger casts were great...and the "less important" people still managed to get air time.  Battle of the Sexes shows that the best.  And The Gauntlet

production wanted the whole Vegas cast for the Gauntlet 1 not the first battle of the seasons. 

YEah i heard that's Production had issues with that season. Coral even said on the aftershow that she found out who wasn't going and declined. Same with Tonya.

But I heard Production didn't like that Rachel & Veronica had their own clothing line and wearing it on the show. 

Yeah I heard Raquel, & Jamie were rumored replacements

battle of the sexez 2 had a impeccable cast

okay so I'm watching the Battle of the Sexes 2 reunion on YT and at the end when Lala asked everyone if they're going to do the next challenge (Inferno 2) they said yes. WHen she asked Coral, Coral said " No I have to chill, I got bitches plottin on me already, asking if i'm going so that they can vote me off" (paraphrasing). The rest of the people were shocked that she wasn't going anymore.

now. I read somewhere awhile ago, that a girl dropped from the bad ass team, and beth was her replacement. What if Coral was orginally on the bad ass team for Inferno 2 and dropped?

I wrote Seasons but I meant Sexes.  99% sure they wanted all of Vegas for Sexes.  Veronica & Rachel definitely had problems with production regarding the clothing line

Supposedly Coral & Melissa dropped from Inferno 2 and were replaced by Beth and Rachel.  Pretty sure that's right

i would have loved to see Melissa & Coral on Inferno 2. primarily the drama with Julie. Grade a tV

What if they brought back the sexes 2 voting  format for next season.  If next season was like cutthroat 2

What if alton didn't throw that elimination?  What if mtv let us see the real world / challenge dailies again? 

What if Sarah G would have lost her first Gautlent...how many Road Rulers would have actually went home? 

What if instead of bringing Bri they counted Ashley as one of the Purgers and only 2 girls go home. Would Jenna have kept LaToya

What if in the Invasion bloodbath, Amanda stayed instead of Ashley? Would  have beaten Camilla in the final?

What if Abram would've went home on that Smash House elimiantion on Inferno 3 and Timmy would've stayed? 

What if Emily B or Rachel R had gone home first on Battle of the Sexes 1...since they both came in last, had the inner circle played 'fair' like the boys...would that have been the last we saw of Goddess Rachel? And without Emily making the game shady as Hell and being the first one to do it would that have changed the outcome and direction of where this show went?

(Fun thought: Rachel and Veronica both got screwed over by Emily playing shady...and back in the day they both seem to like to play fair until they got screwed over)

I'm happy about this...Melissa is not a great competitor at all..I just rewatched 'Sexes' and I don't get how she did so well.  Rachel and Beth were amazing on Inferno 2...Rachel is my fav!
