The "Real World: Boston" ladies' man and the notorious "Real World: Los Angeles" pot-stirrer -- who first appeared together on "Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Battle of the Sexes" in 2002 and subsequently on the same veterans team during "Gauntlet 2" in 2005 -- reunited in the City of Angels this week to discuss who they should send into the next elimination round.
