MTV The Challenge: Battle of the Bloodlines Fantasy Game – Cast Preview, Rules & Picks
I’ve made this as simple and non-time consuming as possible. Here’s the deal, every cast member of MTV’s The Challenge: Battle of the Bloodlines has been assigned a dollar value. You pick any six cast members for your Fantasy Challenge team, as long as the sum of their prices equal $100 or less. If you’ve ever played Daily Fantasy Sports (DraftKings, FanDuel, etc) you will be familiar with the salary cap structure of drafting players. All you have to do is pick your team before the first episode… AND THAT’S IT!!!! No changes. No upkeep. Just sit back, enjoy the episodes, and watch your team move up the standings.

Now, I don’t need to sell you on The Challenge, that takes care of itself. However, to get you HYPED for Fantasy Challenge, I got the Mel Kiper of Reality TV analysis, Paul Shaughnessy, in studio to preview the entire cast, how to play Fantasy Challenge, and what to expect for the upcoming season. Plus, the top strategies to actually emerge victorious at the end of the season and walk away a champion. Yes, we’ve done this before. And yes, it’s equally as awesome every time.
The Challenge: Battle of the Bloodlines starts Wednesday, December 2nd at 10pm EST on MTV. So you have from now until then to sign up and pick a team. Enjoy.

MTV The Challenge: Battle of the Bloodlines Fantasy Game: Notes
CT and Faith are not listed in the cast, but do make cameos in the trailer. There’s no guarantee they appear in more than one episode, so take them at your own risk.
You only pick your team once, before the first episode, and then it’s set for the season. You DO NOT make changes every week. So choose wisely.
If you are found out to have searched spoilers, you will be immediately disqualified and I will find a way to publicly shame you.
Although there appears to be teams on this season, you draft individuals for your Fantasy team, any six cast members you want – male or female.

MTV The Challenge: Battle of the Bloodlines Fantasy Game: Scoring Notes
Flashbacks from previous challenges do not count towards scoring.
Hook up clarification. If two players hook up (open-mouth kissing or more) more than once in an episode, they only get points once. If they hook up (open-mouth kissing or more) again on another episode, they get points again. So they can double up week to week, but not within an episode.
The Marlon & Derek Rule: Anything that happened off camera/was not shown, does not count in scoring unless all participants in event (hook up, fight, etc.) acknowledge it occurred on camera during an episode of the show (not internet, After Show or Reunion).
Anything that happens in internet exclusive videos or during the After Show or the Reunion Special does not count towards scores. Only the winner matters, if MTV does another losers tournament.
