It was a week to remember as MTV launched season 13 of Road Rules and revealed the winners of the 2004 MTV Movie Awards.

MTV had a crazy week with the premiere of both the MTV Movie Awards and Road Rules X-treme. Host Lindsay Lohan of Mean Girls presided over the coolest, raunchiest, and funniest awards shows around.  And another season of the crazy roadies shifts into gear with the season opener of Road Rules Xtreme

Xtreme Road Rules Cast

Road Rules X-treme

You're beautiful, young, and bored.  What do you do?  Try and get on a reality show of course! 

So you make a tape, send it in and guess what? You've been picked for the road trip you'll never forget. Survive the adventures planned for you and you will be rewarded handsomely.

And all the while getting famous on MTV - Not a bad gig!
 
I have to admit, I've always been more of a Real World fan, but since MTV started airing The Road Rules/Real World Challenge I've started to give the roadies a chance.  They're just as hot, always win challenges and half as whiney.  Not to mention Road Rules is just the Real World and all its ridiculously wonderful drama shoved into an RV.

And this season Road Rules goes X-treme.  It's true.  They won't just be bungee jumping this time.  Now they'll be bungee jumping from a helicopter over an active volcano.  Hmmm.  Well, at least they still get to sleep in a room with seven hot strangers.

 

Here's a little introduction to the new cast.  Enjoy!

Danny:  The gay Jersey boy.  MTV says "Danny comes across as a guy who's cocky, witty and uncompromising in his beliefs. He's openly gay and prides himself on his masculinity."

 

Derrick: The boyish Polish-American from Illinois with a love of booze and off-colored remarks.  MTV says, "Confident and almost cocky, Derrick is a bundle of energy. Some might say this 5-foot 6-inch leader has a Napoleon complex, though he'd be quick to deny it. But there's no denying that Derrick's got personality for days and a huge heart. Currently single, Derrick likes to keep his relationships casual because of his wandering eye. Rough around the edges and blunt, the RV-mates will certainly feel Derrick's presence immediately."

Ibis: The Spicy Puerto Rican.  MTV says, "This feisty girl is the whole package, whether she's getting dolled up with her sorority sisters or getting riled up with the guys over a football game. Ibis' Puerto Rican heritage is very important to her. As a very opinionated woman, Ibis' temper sometimes gets her in trouble. But luckily for her RV-mates, she's got passion and flirtatiousness in abundance."   

Jodi: The Southern tomboy who really likes to talk.  MTV says, "Jodi is competitive, energetic and charismatic. Known for her easygoing demeanor, Jodi makes friends everywhere she goes. A female jock, Jodi's got more sports knowledge and skills than the average guy. Jodi wants to be a good girl, but her love for life (and guys) sometimes brings out the bad girl."

Kina: The innocent young Jersey beauty.  MTV says, "Kina is a knockout. Men love her, girls envy her.  She is bursting with personality and has a large group of girlfriends who make a scene wherever they go. Someday, she hopes to provide therapy to troubled children."  Make she can help her fellow RVmates in the meantime...

Patrick: The Abercrombie and Fitch frat boy.  The MTV says, "Patrick is every girl's dream and every father's nightmare. He's first to admit that he's his own worst enemy--he wants to be faithful to his girlfriend, but sometimes his good intentions fade away when he's in the midst of other beautiful women." He may be his own worst enemy now but there might be some competition once he gets on the RV. 

OK, so it's your typical bunch of MTV strangers (RE: one ethnic, one gay, and lots of preppy white people) but if the drama continues on the pace it started out on, their chances of surviving have less to do with the volcano than their ability to stand each other.

It doesn't take long for Derrick to make derogatory remarks against homosexuals and then get so drunk that he started speaking in gibberish, hitting on the girls and rolling around on the floor. 

The question comes to mind - doesn't he realize he's on TV?  But hey I gotta admit, I want to see what he does next!   

And in other MTV news……

Thats not Tobey....

The MTV Movie Awards

Host Lindsay Lohan of Mean Girls presided over the horror-themed festivities at the Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, CA.

Kill Bill Vol. 1 slayed the competition with the most wins of the night, including Uma Thurman as "Best Female Performance" and Lucy Liu as "Best Villain."  Johnny Depp took home nods for "Best Male Performance" for his dynamic role as a swashbuckler in Pirates of the Carribean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.  For the third consecutive year, Lord of the Rings took home "Best Movie," for its latest installment The Return of the King.  Lohan became the first Movie Awards host ever to win the coveted "golden popcorn" while hosting, as she picked up the "Breakthrough Female" award.

The opening hip-hop dance number kicked off an evening full of surprises. Lohan showed off her dance moves along with Marques Houston and Omarion from You Got Served, playing up the fact that Lohan is the youngest MTV Movie Awards host in the show's history with Andy Richter and Rachel Dratch playing her over-protective parents.

A short film "pitch meeting" featuring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and Peter Jackson left the crowd in stitches, as Stiller and Vaughn tried to convince Jackson to make Lord of the Rings 4. Interspersed throughout the show were a series of hilarious short films inspired by the upcoming Will Ferrell comedy Anchorman and Lohan's film Mean Girls. The final short film of the evening featured Andy Dick and Lohan in a campy take-off of the film Kill Bill Vol. 2.

As expected the musical performances were a heart-pounding component of the evening. The Beastie Boys were the first act to grace the stage with a hot screen video mix of their single "Ch-Check It Out."  D12 with Eminem had the crowd roaring with their parody of a rock band - featuring Eminem dressed as famed Guns 'n' Roses frontman Axl Rose.  In true Kill Bill fashion, D12's Bizarre dressed up as Uma Thurman's character in the film.  The Yeah Yeah Yeahs performed their hit "Maps" on an incredible set, a concept by director-producer Spike Jonze.

The evening drew to a hilarious close as Kirsten Dunst appeared with "Spider-Man" to present the award for "Best Movie" - and Spider-Man revealed himself to be none other than Ellen DeGeneres. 

In grand MTV style, the 2004 MTV Movie Awards were the end-all, be-all destination for fans of the world's biggest movie, TV, and music stars.  The list of presenters included: Christina Aguilera; Kate Beckinsale; Jessica Biel; Halle Berry; Tom Cruise; Vin Diesel; Kirsten Dunst; Eve; Jimmy Fallon; Jamie Foxx; Jake Gyllenhaal; Paris Hilton; Kate Hudson; Ice Cube; Scarlett Johannson; Ashton Kutcher; Shia LaBeouf; Brittany Murphy; Thandie Newton; Matthew Perry; Queen Latifah; The Rock; Mark Ruffalo; Snoop Dogg; Sharon Stone; Marlon Wayans; and Shawn Wayans.

The 2004 MTV MOVIE AWARDS will be seen in 166 countries/territories via 42 music programming services channels, and in 18 languages in over 401.8 million households.

Joel Gallen of Tenth Planet Productions served as Executive Producer for the 2004 MTV MOVIE AWARDS with Salli Frattini serving as Executive Producer for MTV.  Michael Dempsey served as Producer and Josh Greenberg is Co-Producer. Joe DeMaio directed.
