The season also introduced "Dirty Laundry", the Surreal Life talk show hosted by Sally Jessy Raphael.
Raphael focused on Cannatella, made several unflattering remarks about her drinking problem, said she was acting like a "slut".
The format of the show resembles that of The Real World and Road Rules, in that the cameras not only record the castmates' participation in group activities assigned to them, but also their interpersonal relationships and conflicts.
The series is also likened to The Challenge in that previously known individuals from separate origins of entertainment are brought together into one cast.
Among notable moments included conflict between Da Brat and Wiedlin that stemmed from comments made by Da Brat about Wiedlin that were shown during Dirty Laundry, and the strained relationship between Chyna and her now-ex-boyfriend Sean Waltman.
