The Duel is the thirty-seventh season of the RSF Franchise, and is based off of the Duel format of the reality television series The Challenge (formerly known as the Real World/Road Rules Challenge). It is also the seventh season of Generation 3. The season followed Bachelor Pad.
This season saw the players compete as individuals in challenges to earn safety. All players would then send lists ranking all other players from most to least want to save. The challenge winner would save the person they want to keep then that person would save someone and so on and so forth until two players remained. Those players would each face the Duel. They would then choose any other player besides the challenge winner to be their opponent in the Duel. From there it is simple, winner stays while loser goes home.
In addition, this season incorporated a points Leader Board where players earned points which would come into play during the Semi-Final round. Players earned points for winning challenges and duels and then lost points for being last place in the Duel Selection Process and being chosen to participate in the Duel. Strategy would also come into play as the players chosen early on in the Duel Selection Process would also earn points. In the Semi-Finals, when 4 remained, it was revealed the player with the most points choose their opponent and then the player in each match-up with more points chose the Duel Game.
In the end, BOBROCKS333 defeated Timster in the Final Challenge in order to earn the title of RSF Champion.
