Long before countless "Challenge" competitors jetted to paradise to duke it out on the battlefield with hopes of nabbing the first place crown, a cast of five (or six) strangers traveled together in a Winnebago; their destination was anywhere, their money was gone, and their mission was to survive in order to be rewarded handsomely. The young adults threw out their rules, and went by the "Road Rules."
During the hit MTV series' 14-season run -- which spanned from 1995 to 2007 -- viewers were treated to countless entertaining adventures across the globe, courtesy of a diverse cast of characters. Whether the guys and gals were running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain ("Real World: Europe"), wrangling crocs in Australia ("Road Rules: Down Under") or finding the keys to their mobile home around the neck of one lucky chihuahua amidst a sea of the canines in Mexico ("Real World: Latin America"), the group's collective effort to complete the task to earn their hard-fought cash was always quality viewing.
But if there's one mission that truly sticks out, it's courtesy of Season 2, which starred notorious "Challenge" vets Timmy and Emily, as well as Christian, Effie and Devin (above): stealing the eight-ball from the "Real World: Miami" house.
The memorable incident with the "Second Adventure" crew featured everything: a lively strategy meeting over a pizza dinner in their hostel, a "confidential" folder featuring floor plans of the South Beach mansion so they could properly navigate how to get in/out, a fun-filled trip to the costume shop to look the part of cleaning/maintenance people and so much more. Oh, and good ol' T and his sidekick C being OH SO AMUSING.
Heck, the successful mission (yup, they nabbed the eight-ball with flying colors!) even inspired a later task for the "Maximum Velocity Tour" team: swiping the beloved robotic dog from the OG "Real World: New Orleans" manor.
In honor of Throwback Thursday, relive the truly daring "RR" activity below -- and share your favorite memory/casties from the old-school program. And for more exciting missions, be sure to catch a brand-new episode of "Battle of the Exes 2" on Tuesday at 11/10c!
