"Things happen. But you can't keep on waiting. If you want something, go for it."
Those poignant words, spoken by Diem Brown at the onset of "The Challenge: Battle of The Exes 2," set the stage for what will surely be the show's most shocking season yet. Bring on the shattered hearts, fountains of tears, cutthroat missions, random hookups and raw emotion -- plus a bombshell game-changer.
In the first look at this upcoming installment of the hit MTV series, which is dedicated to the memory of Brown and fellow cast member Ryan Knight, veteran former flames will battle against "Real World: Ex-plosion" casties as well as "Are You the One?" newbies. But what the pairs don't know is that once a team is sent packing, they won't head back home. Instead, they'll go head to head in a last-chance online-redemption competition called "Battle of the Ex-iled," where the newly eliminated couple will face off against the previous week's "Ex-iled" winner. The last duo standing will return for the grand prize -- and cue the shocked faces in 3...2...1...
