The Challenge: Vendettas is the thirty-first season of MTV reality competition series, The Challenge. The official trailer was shown during the special mini-series Champs vs. Stars. For the first time, this season featured alumni from the US version of Big Brother, and the UK TV shows Ex on the Beach and Geordie Shore, competing with alumni from the regular shows of Real World, Road Rules, The Challenge, and Are You the One? For the first time ever, there was only one winner.[1]

This was the first ever series of the show to be broadcast in the UK. It premiered on MTV UK on April 5, 2018. However the series was dropped after 8 episodes. Also, this is the first season in over ten years to be available to viewers of MTV Latin America, as it was made available through the network's streaming platform MTV Play.

Note: Eight "mercenary" players were brought into the game to compete in The Ring as a season twist: Aneesa Ferreira (RW: Chicago), Derrick Kosinski (RR: X-Treme), Jordan Wiseley (RW: Portland) and Tori Deal (AYTO? 4) in episodes 7/8, while Ashley Mitchell (RW: Ex-Plosion), Darrell Taylor (RR: Campus Crawl), Frank Sweeney (RW: San Diego (2011)) and Laurel Stucky (Fresh Meat II) competed in The Ring in Episode 11.

Format[edit]

Contestants have one or multiple fellow contestants who they have unresolved grudges with, and compete in weekly challenges as teams or individuals. Each player will play in multiple challenges followed by elimination rounds known as "The Ring". The eliminations will alternate between male, female, or genderless elimination weeks. The winning players of each challenge will split $25,000 to their personal bank account. The overall top three players will be known as "The Troika" and will be safe from elimination. The last-place player of the designated gender will head straight to the Ring. The Troika will nominate three players as possible opponents to the last-place player. These players will be known as "The Inquisition".

In the Ring, the Troika will decide who from the Inquisition will compete in the elimination. The winner(s) of the elimination round will stay in the game, and earn a "grenade". Grenades are punishments that can be granted to any player by the elimination winner. The loser of the elimination round will go home, and their bank total will be added to the final challenge total. Players learn in the final leg of the final that there is only one individual winner for the season.

Gameplay[edit]

Challenge games[edit]

  • Get Off the Rock: This purge challenge is an overnight endurance race up the 1400 foot Rock of Gibraltar. For the first phase, contestants race through the streets of Gibraltar to a checkpoint in tunnels at the base of the rock, where they then must stand in a subway car overnight holding weighted boxes. The following day, players continue the race up the Rock of Gibraltar with staggered starts based on how they finished the first phase. The first-place finisher wins $25,000, while the slowest male and female contestants are immediately eliminated.
    • Winner: Joss
    • Eliminated: Nicole R. & Rogan
  • Who's Got Balls?: Played in two heats, male and female, contestants must dive into a soapy pit and retrieve soccer balls, pull themselves back out of the pit using ropes, and deposit the balls into their respective bin. The first contestant to deposit three balls into their bin wins.
    • Winners: Bananas & Britni
  • #Vendettas: Played on a giant hashtag structure lifted above water, this challenge is played in heats separated by gender. Contestants must take their 4 "hashtag" figures, and place them onto 4 separate opponents' poles. The fastest male and female to place their hashtags on their opponents poles and make it back to their own pole win the challenge.
    • Winners: Devin & Natalie
  • Food Wars: Contestants are divided into 7 teams of 3 and 1 team of 2. At the beginning of each round, they are asked a question, and the first team to buzz in is allowed to answer. If they get it right, they win that question and will then be able to select one other team to be safe from eating while every other team has to select a member to consume a food of the winning choosing team's choosing. If the members of the eating team are unable to finish their dish in the allotted time, their team is eliminated. The final round between the final two teams is an eating competition, with the first team to finish the dish winning.
    • Winners: Marie, Tony & Zach
  • Gasping for Air: Played at night, contestants are divided into 4 teams. Each contestant takes a turn diving underwater down 15 feet, and then moving a metal ring along a rope stretched 150 feet underwater. There are three checkpoint stations for the contestants to stop and breathe out of oxygen tanks while underwater. The team that moves their rings the overall longest distance wins.
    • Winners: Bananas, Kailah, Kyle, Tony & Zach
  • Puppet Master: Contestants are split into two teams and are chained together in one long chain. While chained together, contestants must work together to assemble pieces of a giant puppet together (with Aneesa and CT heads). The first team to do so, and pull the rope raising their puppet, wins.
    • Winners: Bananas, Brad, Cara Maria, Jemmye, Kayleigh, Kyle, Natalie, Nicole Z., Shane & Tony
  • Car Crash: This challenge entails five cars that are lifting into the air over water and are being sprayed with water. Contestants are separated into 4 teams. Each member of the team must jump from car to car, going through the backseat once completing the jump. The team with the fastest contestant to complete the jumps wins.
    • Winners: Bananas, Cara Maria, Natalie & Nelson
  • Kicking Ass: Contestants are divided into two teams and are playing a game of soccer. However, they will be playing on pogo stilts while in giant plastic bubbles. The first team to score two goals on their opponents wins.
    • Winners: Brad, Kailah, Kam, Kyle, Natalie, Nicole Z., Tony & Zach
  • This Land Is My Land: Competitors are split into three teams. Each team has to stack up forty-five palates in order to raise their flag. Each team is split into three groups: Fabricators, who stack the palates; Suppliers, in charge of supplying the palates by running the palates that roamers supply them to the Fabricators; and Roamers, who must run across the beach and are in charge of supplying the Suppliers through a reservoir or stealing from other teams. The first team to stack their palates and raise their flag wins.
    • Winners: Britni, Natalie, Nicole Z., Tony & Zach
  • Spanish Treasure: Contestants are divided into two teams. Each competitor on the team has to go one at a time to swim over to retrieve a ball. The competitor then has to dive down underwater and place the ball into a net attached to a treasure chest, elevating it slightly. They then swim back and touch a checkpoint before the next competitor on their team can go. Once the chest is brought up to the surface, the team is allowed to bring it back to shore, ending the mission. The team who does this the fastest wins.
    • Winners: Brad, Devin, Jemmye, Natalie, Nicole Z., Tony & Zach
  • Help Me, Rhonda: This is an individual endurance competition. Competitors each have to race one mile up a hill to a bridge, where they then have to zipline across a chasm. They then have to run through the city before rappelling down the side of a wall and then running to the finish. The fastest male and female contestants win, while the slowest male and female contestants are eliminated.
    • Winners: Nicole Z. & Zach
    • Eliminated: Devin & Jemmye
  • Outside the Box: Played individually, players are hooked to a moving semi-truck and forced to traverse from the truck to a dangling pillar with stacked boxes in-between. Players push themselves, alternating between the truck and pillars, weaving between the stacks of boxes. The boxes have varying point values, and if the player knocks over the stack of boxes, those points are added to their overall score. In addition, if a player fails to make the transfer, they will receive a transfer penalty. Those with the least points wins and gets an automatic ticket into the final challenge. The last place male (due to an uneven number of male and female competitors remaining) is eliminated.
    • Winners: Kailah & Tony
    • Eliminated: Nelson

Ring games[edit]

  • Balls of Fire: Placed on opposite sides of the Ring in front of two goals, players must kick soccer balls through a wall of fire into their opponent's goal. The player to score the best of three will win and earn a grenade. In the event that nobody can score a goal for an extended period of time the game will be played in a sudden death round.
    • Played by: Cory vs. Nelson
  • Chain Reaction: Players will start at the bottom of a chain ladder with only one rung connected on it and the remaining ones disconnected. On TJ's signal, players must reconnect the rungs one by one while climbing their ladder until they can reach a bell. The first player to ring the bell will win and earn a grenade.
    • Played by: Alicia vs. Melissa
  • Oil and Water: Players will be placed in an oil pit and must retrieve a ball that TJ will drop down a peg board. Once they have retrieved the ball they must bring it back and score it in their basket. During this elimination players must remain on their hands and knees at all time unless they are about to score. Each basket will earn a point and the first player to score three points will win and earn a grenade.
    • Played by: Melissa vs. Sylvia
  • Troubled Water: Players will be in a tank of water. They will have to use their bodies to remove water until they get to the red line. Once they get to the red line, they will use a hammer to break the bottom of the tank and escape the tank. The first player to do so will win and earn a grenade.
    • Played by: Brad vs. Victor
  • Crazy 8: Players will race for a ring in the shape of a figure 8. They must do whatever it takes to get the ring to their side. The first player to get the ring to their side twice will win the elimination. In an unexpected twist, four "Mercenaries" (Jordan, Derrick, Tori, and Aneesa) were brought in to compete against the players in the Ring. In order to stay in the game, they must win against the Mercenary. The players who win against their Mercenary will stay in the game and earn a grenade.
    • Played by: Jordan vs. Shane, Aneesa vs. Veronica, Kam vs. Tori, Derrick vs. Joss
  • Basket Case: Players will start locked inside of a Spanish basket. On TJ's signal players must claw, smash, and tear their way out of their basket as quickly as they can. Once they have left their basket, players must run to their puzzle board and complete it as quickly as possible. The first player to successfully complete their puzzle will win and earn a grenade.
    • Played by: Kailah vs. Marie
  • Not So Bright: Players will each start in front of their podiums facing their puzzle board. On TJ's signal they will press the button on their podium causing the lights on their board to partially light up. The players must then run to their board and flip the switches for those lights that are off. The puzzle board only remains lit when a player is touching their button so the players will have to memorize which switches need to be turned on without accidentally turning any off. The first player to successfully light their puzzle board in its entirety will win and earn a grenade.
    • Played by: Bananas vs. Devin
  • Yankin’ My Chain: Players will start harnessed together, back-to-back, on a circular track. On TJ's signal players must run around the track to reach a bell that is on their opponent's side. The first player to reach and ring their bell will win. In another twist, four more "Mercenaries" (Frank, Darrell, Ashley, and Laurel) were brought in to compete against the players in the Ring. In order to stay in the game, they must win against the Mercenary. The players who win against their Mercenary will stay in the game and earn a grenade.
    • Played by: Brad vs. Frank, Ashley vs. Kam, Darrell vs. Nelson, Britni vs. Laurel
  • Spanish Torture: Players will be tied and harnessed to two ropes running across the ring, one for their hands and one for their feet. On TJ's signal, players must shimmy across these ropes as quickly as they can in order to ring a bell at the end. The first player to make it across and ring their bell will win and earn a grenade.
    • Played by: Kam vs. Natalie
  • Head Banger: Players will start on either side of a wall and, on TJ's signal, will charge through two walls as quickly as possible. After breaking through the second wall players will find two oversized balls that they must use to smash through a metal grate that will reveal two smaller balls that must be deposited in their tube. The first player to deposit both smaller balls into their tube will win and return to the game and earn their ticket to the final challenge.
    • Played by: Brad vs. Leroy

Final challenge[edit]

In the first stage of the final challenge players must run along a course and complete three checkpoints. Before attempting each checkpoint players must retrieve a token found at the end of the mile and a half long course. Additionally, players will be required to wear various pieces of medieval equipment that will slow them down. The first two male players and first two female players to complete the stage will advance to Stage 2. The remaining four players will be eliminated from the final challenge and their bank accounts will be added to the final prize. For the first checkpoint players feet will be shackled together by chains. Each player will start with their own basket of torches. One at a time, players must take their entire basket of torches to the opposite end of the muddy field. Players may simply return to their basket after each deposit or they may take a torch from their opponent's basket and return it to their starting basket. Once a player has moved all of their torches they may advance to the next checkpoint. Players will enter a dungeon where they will face either Bananas or Melissa who serve as Mercenaries. The Mercenaries serve as card dealers and each player must guess whether the next card will be higher or lower than the first, aces being high. If the player correctly guesses two of three cards they will advance to the final checkpoint. If the Mercenary wins they will be responsible for assigning the player a grenade that they must complete before advancing. For the final checkpoint of Stage 1 players must each wear an entire suit of armor while they finish the course. Upon reaching the checkpoint each player must wait for the next of their fellow players to arrive before playing. Competing one on one, one by one, players must remove swords from their board in amounts of one, two, or three. The player with one sword remaining on their board will win and advance to the finish line. The winner will also assign their opponent one of three ancient dishes, cheese, hot chocolate, or spicy tripe soup, to consume before being able to advance. The last player to reach the checkpoint will be responsible for simply removing all of the swords from the board before advancing. Players must then run along the course once more to retrieve their final token before crossing the finish line.

In the second stage of the final challenge players must memorize a puzzle key featuring various colored circles. Once they have memorized a portion of their puzzle they must inside the castle and to the courtyard where they must recreate the puzzle on their own individual board. The first male and female to finish stage 1 were given a 30-second head start. The first player to successfully match their color board with the answer key will be declared the winner and receive over $370,000, money from both the final prize and also the cumulated bank accounts of all of the eliminated players. Second, third, and fourth place will each receive $35,000, $10,000, and $5,000 respectively. Each finalist will also receive the money earned from their bank accounts throughout the season. The results would later be announced at the reunion special.

Reunion Special[edit]

The two-part reunion special/finale aired on April 10 and 17, 2018, and was hosted by WWE pro wrestler, The Real World: Back to New York alum, and former Challenge champion Mike "The Miz" Mizanin. Cast members (including Kayleigh, Melissa and Kyle via Satellite) attended at the MTV Studios in New York.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ a b c d Eddie withdrew from the competition prior the "Who's Got Balls?" challenge in episode 2. His exit was not shown on-screen.
  2. ^ a b c d Nicole was forced to withdraw from the final challenge, after she suffered a severe ankle injury on the first stage.
  3. ^ a b c At the end of Episode 10, Kayleigh withdrew from the competition, following a bullying incident in which Britni, Jemmye and Kailah threw her belongings from a balcony at the house.
  4. ^ a b Veronica was forced to withdraw after dislocating her finger against Aneesa in the "Crazy 8" elimination.
  5. ^ Prior to the "Puppet Master" challenge in episode 7, Sylvia was medically removed from the competition, after she was deemed too sick to continue competing.
  6. ^ a b c In episode 3, Melissa suffered an accident at the house in which she lacerated her foot. Host T. J. Lavin delivered the news that Melissa was medically prohibited from competing in the "#Vendettas" challenge, due to the fact that it involved water. As a result, Melissa was automatically sent to "The Ring," instead of the last-place male.
  7. ^ In episode 4, the Ring was deemed genderless; however, as Sylvia was named the last place competitor, it became a female elimination week.
  8. ^ a b In episode 6, Natalie and Sylvia were deemed too sick to compete in the "Gasping for Air" challenge, but were safe due to the fact that it was a male elimination week. In addition, the grenade that Sylvia earned as the result of winning in "The Ring" in the previous episode was a "dud."
  9. ^ a b Jordan Wiseley, Derrick Kosinski, Aneesa Ferreira, and Tori Deal were brought in as Mercenaries to compete against Shane, Joss, Veronica, and Kam respectively.
  10. ^ In episode 11, the elimination between Nelson and the Mercenary, Darrell, came to a draw after they reached the time limit. Thus Nelson was allowed back into the game, but was not rewarded a Grenade.
