Rw-rr-16 gauntlet 2003

The Gauntlet is the 7th season of the MTV reality game show, The Challenge (though at the time, known as Real World/Road Rules Challenge). The season is directly subsequent to Battle of the Sexes. This challenge was held in Telluride, Colorado. It was hosted by Jonny Moseley.

This is the first edition of the Gauntlet series, with The Gauntlet 2 following in 2005–2006 and The Gauntlet III following in 2008.


The Gauntlet featured 28 castmates competing in missions with an immunity life-saver awarded to the best individual performer. Each team would then select a player from their team to go into the Gauntlet elimination challenge.
