The Duel is the 13th season of the Real World/Road Rules Challenge. It premiered on October 12, 2006 and concluded with the reunion special on January 18, 2007. This was the first season where challengers would be competing individually.

Description

We're heading to tropical Brazil, where this time it's every man and woman for themselves. 20 ruthless Real World, Road Rules, and Fresh Meat alumni face off to win their share of a half million dollars in cash and prizes. But only two competitors -- one guy and one girl -- will walk away with the grand prize of $150,000 each in the final mission. New rules, new games, new battles... let the Duel begin!

Notes:

  • No female Duel was held in Episode 2, after Tina was disqualified from the competition following the "Ring Toss" challenge for punching Beth.
  • Beth and CT were disqualified from their respective "Push Me" Duels, after improperly unhooking the flag from the carabiner.
  • CT was the first male player to retrieve 10 flags in the "Dine-N-Dash" challenge. However, he was disqualified for not grabbing a flag at the first pole, after host T.J. Lavin explained in the rules that failing to grab the first flag would result in a DQ. Therefore, the male player with the next highest amount of flags retrieved — Evan, was declared the prize winner by default.
    • Wes did not participate in the "Dine-N-Dash" challenge in due to an uneven number of conteslightyellow"ts on the two teams.
  • The "Paddle Me" challenge in Episode 15 was designated as both a male and a female Duel day. The Kicker Car Audio System prize was awarded to both Jodi and Wes for this challenge. All other competitors were automatically nominated for the Duel. CT and Svetlana came in second place in this challenge, and earned the right to select the Duel they wanted to compete in — vs. Aneesa and Brad, respectively. (The conteslightyellow"t at the end of the selection process also had a chance to select the Duel game (albeit randomly) throughout the entire season.)
