Road Rules is coming back to MTV.
The new season or the reality show will incorporate interactive elements - the ability of viewers to determine through an online vote which cast member is eliminated each week, putting them in control of which six people remain behind the wheel, notes The Hollywood Reporter.
In essence, the real-time version presents its action through two episodes, one on-air and one on MTV's broadband video channel Overdrive. After the new broadcast episode airs, viewers will vote for one of two cast members deemed the 'weakest' by the rest of the cast to enter an elimination face-off to air on MTV Overdrive.
At the same time, viewers will determine the nominee's challenger from an Internet replacement board of potential male and female challengers, which lives on MTV.com, along with video packages, personal blogs and statistics and background on each potential replacement. Additional interactive elements centered on Road Rules include posted blogs and personal video diaries from cast members after each mission along with recorded message updates for mobile content.
The cast of Road Rules will be six of the most infamous former members for this first season back, coming in January on MTV.
