MTV TEAMS UP FORMER HOUSEMATES WHEN "THE CHALLENGE: BATTLE OF THE SEASONS," PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19 AT 10:00 P.M. ET/PT ON MTV

Santa Monica, CA (September 12, 2012) - We paired up enemies in "Rivals" and old flames in "Battle of the Exes," now, for the first time ever, it will be an all-out battle for "Real World" Supremacy when MTV premieres "The Challenge: Battle of the Seasons" on Wednesday, September 19 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT with a jam-packed 90-minute episode. The competition reaches new heights as each team, comprised of old roommates, exes and rivals, is forced to put their drama aside and come together to become the last seasons standing and to compete for the biggest chunk of $350,000 in prize money. A twist in the game right off the bat throws the roommates for a loop, but they'll have little time to recover as the premiere kicks off with a challenge that leaves them hanging and fighting to stay aloft. And back at the house, the drama begins immediately as Zach starts a romance right under his San Diego ex's nose, and a knock-down fight involves nearly the entire house, teasing at the drama to come in this tumultuous season.

"The Challenge: Battle of the Seasons," hosted by TJ Lavin, takes place in Bodrum, Turkey and will bring together fan-favorites from seven of the most memorable "Real World" seasons---Austin, Brooklyn, both Las Vegas seasons (combined into one team), Cancun, New Orleans, San Diego and St. Thomas. With so many different personalities, relationships and egos involved, this season is bursting at the seams with conflict. To start, multiple new romances threaten to rip teams apart and ruin alliances, not to mention the drama of the old relationships. Will divorced exes Danny and Melinda be able to get over their rocky past, even with troublemaker Wes on their team? Will Knight win ex-girlfriend Jemmye back after cheating on her? Will the original "Real World Las Vegas'" most famous bad girl Trishelle, and her former housemate Alton, get along with teammates Dustin and Nany from the second Vegas season?" Will Sarah, kicked off the last "Challenge" due to her partner's bad behavior, finally take home the prize along with teammates Chet, Devyn and JD? And is there anyone Hurricane Frank won't fight? Watch as these "Real Worlders," who stopped being polite long ago, try to work together as a team for the ultimate prize.
