The series followed six strangers, between the ages of 18 and 24, stripped of their money and restricted to a life in an RV, traveling from location to location. The strangers were guided by a set of clues and a missions to complete at each location. It was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2001. The ground-breaking series was a pioneer in travel/adventure/reward reality television. Road Rules was created by Jonathan Murray and Mary-Ellis Bunim of Bunim/Murray Productions. After Bunim died of cancer in early 2004, the show went into hiatus for three years. After season 14 ended, it was confirmed that Road Rules was no longer in production.

Bunim-Murray began working on the show soon after the third San Francisco season, and finally debuted in 1995.
