Road Rules: Viewers' Revenge is the 14th season and final season of the MTV reality television series Road Rules. The season premiered on January 30, 2007 at 9:00 pm EST/PST and ran through May 9, 2007. The cast is made up of six former Road Rulers and ten "Pit Crew" members. This is the first MTV reality show to be filmed and then aired in near real time with input from viewers at home.

The cast drove around California, Arizona, and Nevada competing in various missions. Each mission earned a prize of $10,000 to be pooled and split by the six cast members who made it to the finale. In addition to the cash prize, individual cast members won a Mazda3.

This season brought several changes, most notably the requirement for some to face-off against pit crew members for the right to stay on the RV. The cast was also given money and filming was not done on an ongoing schedule. This season also included new sponsorships from Wendy's and Mazda.

While this season was originally touted as bringing Road Rules out of hiatus, there have been no further seasons of Road Rules since this one, as of 2014, due to low ratings that possibly occurred to the new format.

Production details[edit]

In 2004, after its 13th season had wrapped, the show had not been renewed by MTV and the production company of Road Rules officially stated that the show was "on hiatus". For the better part of two years, Bunim/Murray Productions lobbied to have the show's contract renewed, failing twice. Ultimately in 2006, Bunim-Murray Productions had announced that they were retooling the show to include an "interactive" portion of the series as part of a new section of their company. Viewers had input in the cast eliminations, and elimination face-offs aired exclusively as digital elements on mtv.com. In late 2006, MTV announced they were picking up the series once again, resulting in Viewers' Revenge.

The Game[edit]

Rules[edit]

Rather than embarking on their trip several months before the air date, this show is being filmed and then broadcast in near real time. Cast members will only have the opportunity to compete in missions and nominate cast members for elimination. Viewers at home will be able to decide most other elements of the game from the MTV website.

The rules of Viewers' Revenge state after each mission, the group nominates one male and one female. The three male cast members are responsible for nominating the female. The three female cast members are responsible for nominating the male. Then viewers at home choose who, of those two people, will have to go into an elimination face-off. If they lose the face-off, the cast member will be replaced by one of the eight-member "Pit Crew." The replacement will be voted on by internet visitors to the MTV.com website. Voted off cast members are eligible to come back on the RV. After a cast member is voted off, they go back to the "Pit Crew".

Also, if the group loses two missions in a row, they must nominate two males and two females for an elimination face-off.

On episode three, due to Abram getting kicked off, it was announced only one castmember would be placed in the elimination pit, so long as the Roadies win their mission. If they lose their mission, they have to nominate two castmembers to the elimination pit.
