Another TV reality show is giving its contestants a chance to get back in the game…online. MTV’s “The Challenge: Battle of the Exes II,” like Bravo’s “Top Chef” before it, is getting a companion series on the web.
Called “Battle of the Ex-iled?” the show will feature the most recent losers from “The Challenge: Battle of the Exes II” as they compete against thus far undisclosed challengers to get back in the game on TV.
The MTV series just debuted its 26 season on January 6, marking the first episode in which the failing contestants will get a second chance via the web show, which begins today, January 13. “Battle of the Exes” is on MTV every Tuesday at 11pm ET, after which “Battle of the Ex-iled?” will come out online on MTV’s website.
Bravo made the web companion to TV reality series model work with “Top Chef: Last Chance Kitchen,” where contestants eliminated from “Top Chef” on Bravo get a second chance at the competition as seen on BravoTV.com. “Last Chance Kitchen” is currently in its fourth season and has previously won an Emmy.
