I hope the episodes that were made will leak someday.
I know two are at the Paley center and the Vulture article mentioned that 16 or so episodes were slated, but I'm not sure if they were filmed or not. It would be nice to see them and other cancelled shows (like Australia's Naughtiest Home Videos, The Will, You're in the Picture, Poochinski, and Manimal) get some sort of compilation release. It would be neat to look back on some of them to see how well (or poorly) they aged, especially the more modern reality shows from the past 20 years.
Homewrecker, Ryan Dunn's prank show, is up on Vimeo. OP has the first six episodes up, and I'll see if anyone has the other two.
Was this lost for a while?
I'm not entirely sure if I'm being honest.
As far as I know, this never got any sort of DVD release and it's not mentioned on MTV's website any more. It also didn't air much (or at all) after it finished it's run in 2005. I'm sure they (MTV) or Dickhouse still have them in their archives somewhere, but given their treatment to other programs (such as Boiling Points, I Want a Famous Face, Juvies, Damage Control, High School Stories, Advance Warning, and so on), I wouldn't be surprised if stuff is partially missing or their status is unknown. I know that with Scarred, it's still mentioned on the Australian MTV website, but the videos aren't viewable any more for some reason. Thankfully, most or all of the episodes are on Youtube and Vimeo as of writing this, but I'll need to see if it's in full or the bits with Jacoby are cut out since some of the uploads I found are 13-15 minutes long.
With the older stuff from the 90s, I'm not sure if they're still archived somewhere or not; such as The Real World, and the super old True Life stuff. I think they were on the main MTV website for a while, but where they went is beyond me. There's also the programs that were brought to or made for MTV Tres as well, but I'm not as knowledgeable about that. I want to say some shows were dubbed in Spanish as well, unless that's a false memory and programs like Exposed and Next were just subbed. However, some shows like My Super Sweet 16 got a Spanish spin-off, but where those are is beyond me. With the Advance Warning thread we have, we're still at a dead end unless we can strike gold with another employee or member of their staff from the time.
I don't think there is anything else to say. I do not know if I will find all the episodes I remember (I have looked for everything I remember) but what I lost was the title of it and it was found on Reddit.
Alas, this link doesn't really work anymore. This one is a little better than some of the other links, which for some reason claim the website was never even crawled (even though it was), but the video doesn't show up anymore. This seems to be a problem with many Wayback Machine archives of YouTube videos for whatever reason. So I guess the video is re-lost for the time being because I didn't think to back it up.
Woohoo! I'm not sure if that link still works, but I checked again and the Wayback Machine has the video again through the fakeurl method.
