For those dedicated fans of the MTV cult classic reality series, The Challenge (formerly Real World/Road Rules Challenge) and its various incarnations, famously including Rookies vs. Veterans -- you will appreciate the live version taking place at Rocco's in Culver City each Monday night.

Our version is Staff vs. Regulars vs. First-Timers. Each Monday, our stable of regulars show up for a weekly battle royale -- Mr. T Says Curlin is Cool, Itty Bitty Ditty, Paddington Kills, Area 51, et al, but a new pattern is emerging -- as each week, we draw in more and more first timers who are giving our regulars a fight to the round 7 finish. And now the staff is back and playing.

Like MTV regular Johnny Bananas, whenever podium prizes are handed out, Mr. T Says is always somewhere to be found, riding a second round successful double or nothing straight to a 3rd place finish, keeping the word "veterans" in Rocco's vernacular for one more week.

But, this week it was a Rookie tug-of-war -- the topically named Justice Kava-hell-nah led for most of the game, until the game of baseball reared its head, and the Masseusers hit a proverbial trivia grand slam on the handout round, garnered 20 points, and powered to the championship.

Here's the twist -- when either of these teams return, they will become the Regulars, the student will become the teacher, and a new crop of first-times will be on hand to dethrone the locals...

See you on the next episode of The Challenge: King Trivia Style.
