October 12 is the premiere date for the new Real World/Road Rules challenge. This installment will be called the Duel and was filmed in Brazil. The former Road Rules contestants are: Beth, Derrick, Jodi, Kina, Tina. The Real Worlders are: Aneesa, Brad, CT, John, Nehemiah Paula, Robin, Svetlana, Tyler and Wes. Returning Fresh Meat are: Casey, Diem, Eric, Evan and Kenny. Judging by the numbers it appears that the Fresh Meat folks are now considered part of the Road Rules family. Some challenge details include one male and one female winner only and the "Duel" appears to be some sort of gauntlet or inferno. There is also rumor of a huge fight between Beth and Tina. Word on the street is that Tina goes home early in the challenge and it may be due to this fight. Stay tuned!
