[via press release from MTV]

MTV's 10th Season Of "The Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Inferno II" Featuring The Good Guys vs. The Bad Asses Heats Up On Monday, March 7 AT 10:00PM (ET/PT)

MTV.com launches The After Show, MTV�s first online series featuring intimate cast interviews, exclusive outtakes and more premiering following each new episode of Inferno II.

Los Angeles, CA, March 1, 2005 � MTV: Music Television today announced the launch of The Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Inferno II on Monday, March 7 at 10:00PM (ET/PT). Executive Produced by Jonathan Murray and produced by Bunim/Murray Productions, Inferno II is the tenth season of the Real World/Road Rules Challenge. The series features 20 legendary veterans of MTV�s The Real World and Road Rules divided into two teams: the Good Guys and the Bad Asses. The teams will compete for more than $300,000 dollars worth of cash and prizes.

BMX bad boy Dave Mirra shakes up the peaceful resort town of Manzanillo, Mexico as he hosts what promises to be one of the wildest challenges ever with 15 team missions, 8 Inferno face offs, and one grand prize competition. After the first team competition is completed, each team votes for someone from the opposing team to compete in the upcoming Inferno challenge. In the next day�s team competition, the elected Inferno warriors try to win the �Lifeshield,� which would allow them to send someone else to the Inferno in their place. However, if they are not the top finisher in the team mission, they will proceed to compete in the head to head endurance challenge: the infamous Inferno.

Barbed wire, steel bars, and a ring of fire isolate the Inferno competitors as they battle to outlast and outdo each other in order to remain on their team�the losers leave the post-apocalyptic styled coliseum empty handed. From an air-suspended game of chicken to a grueling vertical wall climb and a disorienting spin on a torturous wheel, the Inferno�s challenges are bound to get out of control. Watch as the Good Guys and the Bad Asses agonize over which players from the opposing team to send to the Inferno without knowing which of their own teammates will be going as well. In this survival of the strongest, it takes both team performance and individual endurance to win the ultimate prize.

In conjunction with the Inferno II, MTV.com is presenting The After Show, the ultimate online after-party and MTV�s first ever online series. The After Show is hosted by former Road Rules (The Quest) personality, Blair and features intimate cast interviews, an interactive �truth or dare,� an �ADD Recap� of each episode, as well as a special �Beat Blair� segment where Blair challenges his guests to participate in outrageous stunts like �What will Tonya put in her mouth,� �The Drama Dice� or a �Whore-Off.� The After Show will air directly after Inferno II on Mtv.com beginning on March 7 with Mike �The Miz� as the first guest.

The Bad Asses team members include: Karamo (Real World Philadelphia), Dan (Real World Miami), Tina (Road Rules Xtreme), CT (Real World Paris), Veronica (Road Rules Semester at Sea), Tonya (Real World Chicago), Abe (Road Rules South Seas), Derrick (Road Rules Xtreme), Beth (Real World Los Angeles), and Rachel (Road Rules Campus Crawl). The Good Guys team members include: Shavonda (Real World Philadelphia), Jamie (Real World San Diego), Jon (Real World Los Angeles), Landon (Real World Philadelphia), Julie (Real World San Diego), Brad (Real World Sand Diego), Jodi (Road Rules Xtreme), Robin (Real World San Diego), Mike the Miz (Real World Back to New York), and Darrell (Road Rules Campus Crawl).
