Now that Dirty 30 is over, my initial rankings of seasons 20 - 30 is:

11. Bloodlines10. Exes 1 9. Dirty 308. Rivals 37. Rivals 26. Rivals 15. Invasion of the Champions4. Cutthroat3. Free Agents2. Seasons 21. Exes 2  

Gonna defend my opinion that Rivals 3 isn't as bad as its made it out to be after I took the time to rewatch it. While Dirty 30 is one of the worst seasons I've seen imo, though I feel a lot of people liked it. 

 

11. Exes 1 (most forgettable to me)10. Rivals 39. Bloodlines8. Cutthroat (I didn't really like the cast)7. Dirty 30 (long as hell but it had its moments, especially the first half)6. Rivals 1 5. Invasion of the Champions4. Free Agents 3. Rivals 2 2. Seasons 21. Exes 2  

I agree, Rivals 3 is really underrated. Not that it's good, but it's not as bad as people make it seem. The first half is lit. 

Personally, Rivals 3 >>> Rivals 1

1. Seasons 2

2. Exes 2 

3. Invasion

4. Cutthroat

5. Dirty 30

6. Rivals 3

7. Rivals 2 

8. Rivals

9. Free Agents

10. Exes

11. Bloodlines

It’s worth it for Smashley alone and she and Simone actually had an entertaining rivalry. Plus Amanda was tolerable to watch this time compared to how I initially felt about her on Rivals 3. 

I can at least say there were storylines that season that kept me interested in watching. Couldn’t say the same for Dirty 30. Rivals 3 <<<< Dirty 30 competition wise though and casting.

Eh I disagree, it was painfully obvious who would win, the eliminations were crap, the cast had no real surprises, the pairings were stretched so much, too many dqs etc

Yeah Rivals 3 was pure shit. The only season I hate myself for ever watching. Not even The Ruins did that. 

Rivals 3 was catered to Bananas and Sarah. Production didn't give a shit what else happened.  They ****** over Averey and we never saw her again,  they highly edited the Camila / Tony fight (I think there's other stuff that happened there), and they set up the gameplay to favor some more than others.     

The best thing to come out of Rivals 3 was Ashley Mitchell debuting.  

rivals 3 is garbage

Rivals 3 was crap for sure. But honestly with the exception of Invasion of the Champions (which got stale towards the end anyway), all the challenges post Exes 2 have been tragic to watch in some way. 

Every season since Exes 2 has truly been awful.

Bloodlines was a bloody mess. Abram tried, but even he couldn’t save it.

Rivals 3? Do I know her? No? Didn’t think so.

Invasion gets a pass because the cast was top notch, Shane delivered all season long, and it gave us the best female winner in the show’s history.

Veronica is the only good thing Dirty 30 had going for it. Literally the only thing. That season was atrocious.

Averey being robbed another shot still ****** me off. One of the best looking woman from the real world and has potential as a competitor. **** off MTV. 

Dirty 30 honestly felt like the Filthy 50.

Averey robbed.

Nia banned.

Louise ignored.

MTV cancelled.

spectrum reigns supreme

Dirty 30 needed Wes, Coral, and Shane Legendrum. People willing to actually play dirty. Veronica was the only one to bring it unsurprisingly.

Coral backing out 2 or 3 days before departure is such a bitter pill to swallow. I can guarantee you the game would have been so much different. Coral was battle ready too. She trained hard.

I do agree with this. I mean why the **** would you cast people like Jenna and Dario? You need as many people who'll play dirty as possible and this is one of the things they flubbed on when it came to the season.

That and Nany/Wes pair, specifically highlighting at that overnight challenge where Wes and Nany had me cracking up.

Seasons 2 and Exes 2 are very interchangle for me. Seasons was refreshing in its cast and format, which brought new drama. Exes 2, although weaker cast than Seasons 2 and had a repetitive format, far surpassed Exes 1 and was somehow very refreshing.

I much rather Rivals 3 than Rivals 2, simply because we went from a whole fresh cast to the same old routine. And with false rumors of Rivals 2 being New vs Old, it was disappointing to find out the format reverted back to a Rivals.

Invasions pre-Oasis was awesome, post Oasis was lack luster. Bloodlines during Abe was at it's best. Dirty 30 was pretty consistant, never awesome, but not shitty either, just meh,  kind of like Exes 1.

yes!

Oh and Booth can exit I prefer the zany/kooky challenges over the extreme sports shit.But I did like when they had to jump from the transfer trucks on Exes 2 not gonna lie. 

 I prefer those kind of challenges too! The whole vibe of the show was a lot more fun and still had good drama back in the day! I wish they would revert back to that! 

I think everyone can agree that Evelyn, Laurel, and Emily S are the absolute elite women. Who do you think just barely make the cut? For me, the first ones off the top of my head are Rachel R, Cara Maria, Sarah, unfortunately Trashmila. Maybe Paula too. People who have the potential to get to that level if they did more challenges and performed better each time: Kailah, KellyAnne, Ashley M. 

disagree...Rachel R will always be the Elite Queen Goddess of the show <3

Jodi and Kina  are also elite, Jodi  I would say is even stronger than Ev.

Kinda old, but has anyone seen this before? I thought it was hilarious.

lol I’m dying!  That’s freaking hilarious! And I love that Sarah Johnny play themselves! At least according to IMDb they did 

Averey being robbed another shot still ****** me off. One of the best looking woman from the real world and has potential as a competitor. **** off MTV. 

I'm pissed too... what really rubs salt in the wound is that she really wants to come back as well and they just don't even listen!
