Girls v. Boys, also known as GVB, is an American reality series that has aired on The N from August 8, 2003 to October 7, 2005. GVB pits teams of adolescent boys and girls against each other in physical competitions. The series had four seasons: GVB: Tampa, GVB: Hawaii, GVB: Montana, and GVB: Puerto Rico. It is produced by New York-based Dancing Toad Productions.

The Games[edit]

Before the games started, anyone between the ages of 16 and 18 are asked to audition. The show then shows the competitions as well as the debacles between the two teams, both internally and externally. The games consisted of physical competitions as well as acts of sabotage such as during baking contests. The purpose of the competitions is to attain a prize (it has varied from season to season, but in Puerto Rico it was $50,000 for the winning team and $1,000 worth of travel gear split between the winning team members). Each competition earns the winners of the competition a set number of points (ranging from 100 to over 500 in the final event) and the team that earns the most points wins.

The first game was set in Tampa and had three girls and three boys on opposite teams. They stayed at a summer camp.

The second game was set in Hawaii and also had three girls and three boys on opposite teams. However, Lauren Collins and Jake Epstein also make appearances. This season also introduced the teams staying at vacation houses.

The third game during the span of 11 episodes was set in rural Montana and had expanded the competitors to non-celebrity teams of four girls and four boys on opposite teams. The contestants were expected to constantly talk about winning the game, by chanting the phrase "Fresh Money" with a specific accent. Also, in episode 8 Colleen Kirk and Jose Gonzalez appeared to get in a verbal dispute with the rest of the episodes focusing on the consequences of the dispute. This was part of the script as none of the contestants were disqualified.

The fourth and final game during the span of 10 episodes was set in Puerto Rico and the format changed yet again. There were four girls and four boys but they were no longer opposite each other. Three girls and one boy were competing against one girl and three boys. This happened during the span of episodes 4, 5, and 6 where the contestants were told to vote one girl and one boy. It was revealed to be a gimmick when Paris Hoover and Ryder Darcy were "voted out" but then they returned but this time they switched teams.
