MTV.com "Fantasy Challenge" sponsored by Saturn
Official Rules - No Purchase Necessary


1. Promotion Period: MTV.com "Fantasy Challenge" sponsored by Saturn (the "Promotion"). will be posted on MTV.com, a website owned and controlled by MTV Networks, a division of Viacom International Inc. ("MTVN") starting at or around 11:00 AM (ET) on September 15, 2003 and ending at or around 6:00 PM (ET) on January 5, 2004 (the "Promotion Period").

The Promotion will be conducted based on the airing of (15) fifteen episodes (the "Episodes") of "The Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Gauntlet" (the "Program") scheduled to air weekly on MTV: Music Television ("MTV") beginning on September 29, 2003 and continuing through January 5, 2004. The end date of the Promotion may change due to amendments in the on-air schedule and unforeseen preemptions or additions to the number of original episodes. If this occurs, notice will be posted on MTV.com.

2. Registration / Selecting Team: "Entrants" may register for the Promotion beginning at or around 12:00 p.m., noon (ET) September 15, 2003. Entrants must be registered users of MTV.com and must complete all of the required fields of "The Fantasy Challenge" Promotion Registration Form at MTV.com ("Registration"). Entrants will not be allowed to register during Frozen Periods (see Rule #4). During Registration, Entrants will also be required to select (6) six members from the cast of the "Real World/Road Challenge: The Gauntlet" to make up their initial "Fantasy Challenge" Team ("Team"). Each Entrant will then be the "manager" of his/her Team and the "The Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Gauntlet" cast members he/she chooses will be deemed their Cast Members ("Cast Members").

Limit one (1) Team per person and/or email address. Registration requires that Entrants provide personal information (including name, address and phone number for prize fulfillment purposes).

3. Changing Teams: Entrants may change their Team line-up by trading Cast Members. Entrants must have at least six Cast Members on the Teams at all times. A trade is accomplished when an Entrant trades one Cast Member on his/her Team for any other Cast Member who is not already on his/her team (a "Trade"). A Trade may be made at any time excluding during Frozen Periods. For the first twenty-two (22) days of the Promotion, from September 15, 2003 to October 6, 2003, Entrants will be permitted to make an unlimited number of Trades (the "Free Trading Period"). After October 6, 2003, Entrants will only be permitted to make six (6) additional Trades during the remainder of the Promotional Period. The Free Trading Period will end at 9:45 p.m. ET on October 6, 2003 when the Frozen Period begins.

Note: An Entrant will only earn points for a given Cast Member as long as such Cast Member is currently on his/her Team (i.e., once a Cast Member is traded, an Entrant will not earn points retroactively) and provided that such Cast Member is designated "Starting" status (see Section 5).

Incomplete or inaccurate Registration forms / Trades are void.

4. Frozen Periods: "The Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Gauntlet" is scheduled to beginning airing every Monday night at 10:00 PM ET/PT, 9:00 PM CT beginning on September 29, 2003 and continuing through January 5, 2004. During the Program's scheduled airing, Monday is considered "game day." Entrants must have all Trades to their Teams made by 9:45 PM ET each Monday prior to airing of the upcoming Episode. Teams will be "frozen" from 9:45 PM ET on Mondays through approximately 6:00 PM ET on Tuesdays during the Promotion Period (the "Frozen Period"). MTVN is not responsible for technical difficulties that may extend Frozen Periods. During Frozen Periods, Entrants will not be allowed to make changes to their Teams (no Trades will be accepted and Entrant's will not be allowed to change a Cast Member's status (as hereinafter described). Entrants need to assign a "status" to each of their Cast Members. Cast Members can be deemed either a) "Starting" meaning they are in the "Starting Lineup" or b) "On the Bench". Cast Members will only earn points for their actions if their status is selected as "Starting."

5. Earning Points / Scoring: During the Promotion Period, Entrants will earn points based on actions and activities that cast members in the Program complete each week (as outlined below). Entrants will be eligible to earn points from a cast member if such cast member is a current Cast Member on his/her Team and provided that such cast member/Cast Member's status (as chosen by the Entrant) is deemed "Starting.". Each time a Cast Member receives points, all Entrants who currently have such Cast Member on their Team will earn the designated number of points for the current week's Episode. The goal of the Game is for an Entrants' Team to earn as many points as possible on a weekly and cumulative basis during the Promotion Period.

The categories in which points will be awarded to Cast Members / Entrants are as follows:


Crying
Points are scored each time a Cast Member cries. A Cast Member can score Crying points from "boo hoo" crying where tears are visible. If tears are indiscernible but Cast Member demonstrates crying "symptoms," this also counts as "Crying." Crying symptoms include: sniffling, whimpering, tears welling up, voice quivering as if he/she is going to burst into tears at any second. Waterworks are not always visible.). Points will only be awarded for a single occurrence of crying (e.g. If a cast member begins to cry before the commercial break and continues to cry after the commercial break, this only counts as one instance, even though the same event may be shown several times throughout the Episode.) Crying does not count if it occurs during a flashback sequence (See "Flashback").
10
Fighting/
Tantrums
Points are scored each time a Cast Member is an active participant in a verbal or physical fight. Being an on-looker when a fight occurs does not count. For the purposes of the Game a "Fight" is defined as screaming, yelling, storming out of a room, punching, getting "up in someone's business," etc. It does not include fights that occur during a challenge competition--which would fall under the "Foul Play" category. Fights can occur with a cast member or non-cast member. A "Tantrum" normally only involves one person where no one else is fighting back. Tantrum evidence includes screaming, freaking out, pointing fingers, threatening crew with a machete, etc. Fighting/Tantrums do not count if they occur during a flashback sequence (See "Flashback").
15
Hugs
and
Kisses
Points are scored each time a Cast Member is the giver or receiver of a hug or kiss--this includes platonic hugs and friendly kisses (e.g. kisses on the cheek) and it also includes short, neat, lip-touching kisses that are romantic (any kiss that is "sloppy" or is a "French kiss" would fall under the "Making Out/Hooking Up" category). An arm around someone's shoulder does not count as hugging unless the initial contact starts with a hug and then phases into a more casual arm around shoulder.
3
Hooking Up/
Making Out
Points are scored each time a Cast Member is a willing participant in a major kissing session or an implied session. This includes French kissing, making out, and hard-core smooching. This category also includes any other sexual contact or when more than kissing is implied (e.g. we see a couple getting into bed and they pull the covers over their heads as sexy music plays and the scene fades to black). Kisses on the cheek don't count in this category (see "Hugs & Kisses"). Hooking Up/Making Out does not count if it occurs during a flashback sequence (See "Flashback").
20
Nudity
Points are scored each time a Cast Member bares a part of his/her body which is normally covered up by undergarments--blurring of the picture must occur.
15
Getting Bleeped
Points are scored each time a Cast Member says a curse word in which "bleeping" is required. "Bleeping" occurs when a word is said that violates the FCC or MTV's standards of what's acceptable to say on MTV.
3
Trash-Talking
Points are scored each time a Cast Member trash-talks a person or an entire team in a competition sense. (e.g. If the Cast Member is a Real World cast member, he/she can trash-talk someone on Real World, Road Rules or the entire Real World or Road Rules team.) Trash-talking only applies ONLY to competition--bad-mouthing, gossiping or talking negatively about someone does not count (See "Gossiping/Bad-Mouthing"). Trash-talking would include things like the following: "Our team is so much stronger than the Road Rules team. We're going to kick their asses!"
5
Gossiping/
Bad-Mouthing
Points are scored each time a Cast Member speaks negatively about someone else. Bad-mouthing can occur when a Cast Member is talking to another Cast Member or when a Cast Member is talking directly to the camera in an interview form. This is a personal attack on someone else. A good rule of thumb to decide if something qualifies as "gossiping/bad-mouthing," is to ask yourself, "Would that person be pissed if they heard someone say this about them?" If the answer is "yes," then it would qualify as "gossiping/bad-mouthing." This would include statements like, "Dan is such a back-stabber. I can't stand him." This category does not include talking badly about someone from another team in a competition sense. For instance, "Steve is a horrible athlete; he will really suck at any of the challenges." This would be considered "Trash-Talking" because it is regarding competition. Gossiping/Bad-Mouthing counts as separately if they're in different locations (e.g. If Nathan starts Bad-Mouthing David while he is sitting on the couch, then the show cuts to an interview clip of David bad-mouthing Nathan, and then the show cuts back to Nathan on the couch continuing to bad-mouth David--this would count as 2 instances of "Gossiping/Bad-Mouthing because Nathan sitting on the couch counts as one instance and David in the interview counts as a separate instance since they took place at different settings.)
3
Pep Talk
Points are scored each time a Cast Member gives a pep talk. A pep talk is defined as a speech or a discussion designed to raise the morale of another person or a group of people. This does not include "rooting" (e.g. "Go, Veronica!" does not count as a pep-talk). Points are awarded for the person who gives the pep-talk, not to the receiver of the pep talk.
10
Getting Injured
Points are scored each time a Cast Member gets injured at anytime during the show. The injury can occur during a challenge or when the Cast Member is just hanging around. An injury includes everything from minor bleeding to broken bones or being hospitalized for any reason.
15
Refusal to Participate
Points are scored each time a Cast Member refuses to participate in a challenge competition for any reason. Reasons to refuse participation can range from "religious reasons" to "fear of heights."
15
Flashback
A flashback refers to when something that happened on a previous season of Real World, Road Rules or The Real World/Road Rules Challenge is mentioned or a scene from a previous season is shown. Points are scored each time a Cast Member mentions something from a previous season or if such Cast Member appears in a flashback from another season. If another action which falls within a point category occurs within the flashback (e.g. Crying, Fighting, etc.), points will not be scored for those categories, only for the Flashback itself.
10
Bodily Function
Points are scored each time a Cast Member does a bodily function including (but not limited to) one of the following: Vomiting, Farting, Burping, Snot-Rocketing, Peeing and Spitting.
10
Foul Play
Foul Play can only occur during a Challenge competition and includes anytime someone cheats to win or is suspected of cheating or uses physical force in a way that is against the rules of that particular competition. If a Cast Member is suspected of Foul Play but somehow manages to not get disqualified, they may still receive Fantasy Points for this category. (I.E. If some cast members are talking about how someone cheated but Jonny does not officially rule that they are disqualified, they can still earn Foul Play points.) Many times, Foul Play leads to Disqualification, but Disqualification can occur without Foul Play (I.E. a Cast Member may inadvertently break the rules of a competition without malice intent). If a Cast Member gets Disqualified from a competition for any reason, he/she will receive points for this category. Points are scored each time a Cast Member uses Foul Play, is accused of Foul Play or is Disqualified.
10
Buzz Word
(Bonus Points)
Each week, there will be a "buzz word" worth 10 points. The buzz word is a secret word that will be revealed on MTV.com the day after the premiere airing of an Episode (Tuesday). Points are scored each time a Cast Member says the buzz word. The word may be said several times throughout the Episode and Points are scored each time it is said by such Cast Member. Points are scored each time a Cast Member says a variation of the word (e.g. If the buzz word is "Married," Entrants will also earn points if such Cast Member says "Marriage.") Each week's buzz word will be posted on MTV.com the day after the Episode airs (Tuesdays) at or around 6:00 p.m. ET.
10
Gauntlet
Winner
After every official competition (a.k.a. "challenge"), the Real Worlders and Road Rulers must vote one of their cast members into "The Gauntlet." Fantasy Points will be awarded to the winner of the Gauntlet competition. If Entrant has the Gauntlet winner on their Fantasy Team, Entrant will receive 10 points.
10


Note: Entrants will only earn points once for a single occurrence of an activity. For example, for crying, if a character begins to cry before the commercial break and continues to cry after the commercial break, this only counts as one occurrence, even though the same event may be shown several times throughout the Episode. Another example may include "hooking-up" or making out where an Entrant will receive points while the couple is together (regardless of how many kisses or how long the hook-up or make-out occurs). In this type of activity, once the couple has completely walked away from each other, they can then come back together later for a second make-out or hook-up section and you would receive additional points. Again, if a couple begins making-out before a commercial break and then they continue their make-out session after the break, this will only count as one occurrence.

All point scoring, activity classifications, interpretation of the point scoring categories and other judgment calls are at the sole discretion of MTVN and may not be disputed. MTVN decisions will be considered final on all aspects of the Promotion. MTVN reserves the right to change the point values earned and activities which yield points at any time. Notice of such changes will be posted on MTV.com.

Entrants can visit MTV.com every Tuesday during the Promotion Period to check their point scores from the previous night's Episode. Scores will be posted on or about 6:00 PM ET every Tuesday.

6. Winner Determination: One (1) cumulative prize will be awarded at the end of the Game one (1) Entrant whose Team has the highest cumulative point total for the entire Promotion Period (the "Cumulative Prize").

Weekly prizes will be awarded each week to Entrants who have earned the highest number of points for the corresponding week's Episode (the "Weekly Prizes"). If there are five (5) prizes available for a given week then Weekly Prizes will be awarded to the five (5) Entrants who have the highest Weekly Point totals for that week's Episode.

In the event of a tie for either the Weekly Prizes or the Cumulative Prize, winners will be selected in a random drawing from among all tied Entrants tied for a respective prize. Random drawings will be accomplished under the supervision of an independent judging agency whose decisions in all matters are final.

In the event of an airing / broadcasting time change for an Episode, MTVN reserves the right to change the air date and the time of a Frozen Period for any given Episode. Such changes will be posted on MTV.com. In the event the Promotion is terminated early, the Cumulative Prize will be awarded based on the points earned by Entrants as of the date of the premiere airing of the last Episode. In the event that any Weekly Prizes cannot be awarded due to changes in the on-air schedule, these will be awarded in a random drawing from among all Entrants registered for the Game.
