Format[edit]

Prior to each challenge, host T. J. Lavin will announce to each contestant as to whether a challenge will be declared as either an individual, pair or team challenge. In the first episode, six players (three of each gender) are eliminated, and in a shocking twist, those six players are sent to the Redemption House, and have a chance to return to the actual game. Unbeknownst to each contestant, they will compete for a share of $1,000,000 — the largest monetary prize in Challenge history.[4]

Gameplay[edit]

Challenge games[edit]

  • The Purge: This challenge is played in three different phases. In the first phase, which is individual, each player must roll barrels up a hill. The top four finishers of each gender are safe from elimination. In the second phase, which is played as two teams, each team must carry a pair of cannons up a hill. The players from the team that win are the next to be safe from elimination. In the third phase, each remaining player must race toward a pile of cannonballs, bring it up a hill and fire with their cannon. The first player of each gender to fire their cannons are the last to be safe from elimination, and choose three players (out of four) of the same gender to be eliminated and sent to Redemption.[4]
    • Round 1 Winners: Bananas, Hunter, Jordan, Derrick K., Kailah, Camila, Aneesa, Tori
    • Round 2 Winners: Blue Team (Ammo, Britni, Cara Maria, Dario, Derrick H., Leroy, Marie, Nelson, Nicole & Veronica)

    • Sent to Redemption: Amanda, Devin, Darrell, LaToya, Shane & Simone
  • Cool Under Fire: Players will be suspended 30 feet above the water while sitting on a ledge against a wall. Every so often the wall will tilt forward to make it harder to remain on. There are safety ropes along the wall in order to allow players to get into position, but they are not allowed to grab them once the horn has been blown. The challenge is played in two heats of six males and six females per heat. The remaining twelve players may either relax or launch rotten tomatoes from stationary slingshots at their opponents. The two male and two female players to last the longest in each heat will be declared the winners. The two males and two females to fall first will be the losers of the challenge and are eligible for The Double Cross. [5]
    • Heat 1 Winners: Cara Maria, Derrick K., Nelson, Nicole
    • Heat 2 Winners: Bananas, Camila, CT, Tori
  • Battle Royale: Players will be divided into two teams of ten and the challenge will be played in male and female heats. Teams will start from opposing poles in the arena with a narrow hallway in the middle. Once TJ sounds the horn, players must run through the hallway to the opposing team's pole to retrieve five rings hanging from their pole. Upon retrieving these rings, teams must run back to their starting pole and place their opponents rings on them. Each player is responsible for grabbing a ring. The first team to win two heats will win while the losing team will all eligible for The Double Cross. The two players not selected for a team will be required to sit out from the challenge and will also be eligible for The Double Cross.
    • Winners: Green Team (Aneesa, CT, Cara Maria, Cory, Dario, Hunter, Leroy, Marie, Tori & Veronica)
  • Pirates' Treasure: Players will be placed into male-female pairs. The game will be played in two heats and once TJ sounds the horn, pairs must carry a 100 lb chest through a series of obstacles in order to reach the finish line. Once reaching the finish line, players must smash open their chests with a hammer in order to a retrieve a Jolly Roger flag which they must hoist up a flagpole to complete. The first pair to hoist their flag in each heat wins while the bottom two pairs in each heat will be declared the losers and are eligible for The Double Cross.

    • Heat 2 Winners: Nelson & Veronica
  • Ups And Downs: Players must divide themselves into teams of four with two males and two females on each team. Teams will have to place thirty Challenge logos in chronological order using placards on a tall beam. One player will be in charge of placing the placards in order while the remaining three teammates will be required to hoist them up and down the beam using a rope. The first team to place all of their logos in order will be declared the winners. The two last-place teams will be eligible for The Double Cross.
    • Winners: Camila, Cara Maria, CT, Leroy
  • Talk Thirty to Me: Players will compete as individuals and will be suspended 30 feet in the air above water. Players will be asked a series of trivia questions related to their cast-mates. If a player gets a question wrong, they will receive an 'X' to their score, but if they answer correctly they will be able to add an 'X' to an opposing player's score. Once a player has three 'X's they will be out of the challenge. The game will be played in a male heat and a female heat. The first four players to hit the water in each heat will be the losers and eligible for The Double Cross, and the last male and female players will be the winners of the challenge. Winners of the challenge will also receive a getaway for themselves and a friend.
    • Winners: Camila & Tony
  • Saved By The Bell: Players will be divided into four teams of four. Teams must go from one platform 30 feet in the air to the other platform across the way hopping across a series of bells. They must do this while another team is competing as well. The team to finish the fastest, or with the most players across, will be declared the winners. All three losing teams will be eligible for The Double Cross. The two players not selected for a team will be required to sit out from the challenge and will also be eligible for The Double Cross.
    • Winners: Camila, CT, Hunter, Kailah
  • Blackout: Players will be placed into three teams of five. Teams will be placed inside a blacked-out 8x8 box where they will be unable to see anything.

Once the pairs retrieve their puzzle pieces, they will split off as individuals to complete their puzzles. The first two males and first two females to complete their puzzles will earn their spot in the final challenge while the bottom six players will compete in the next challenge for the last two spots in the final challenge.
    • Winners: Cara Maria, CT, Jordan, Tori

The player of each gender to win the final round will win the challenge and return to the competition. The losing six players will be permanently eliminated from the game.
    • Winners: Jenna & Tony
  • Green With Envy: Players must dine on a series of five disgusting dishes. Once they finish a dish, they must race up the mountain and dive into the mud volcano to retrieve a toltumo that may contain either an emerald or a rock. If they break open their toltumo and receive an emerald then they may place it in front of whichever dish they would like to avoid eating and head back up the volcano.

The first male and first female players to finish all five of their dishes will return to the game while the losing players will be permanently eliminated.
    • Winners: Aneesa & Hunter

The first two male players and first female player to retrieve and complete their puzzle will return to the game while the losers will be permanently eliminated.
    • Winners: Cara Maria, CT & Jordan

Final challenge[edit]

For the final challenge, players will compete in a series of timed checkpoints full of unpredictable twists and turns. First place players will receive $450,000 each, second will receive $35,000 each, and third will receive $15,000 each. To kick off the final challenge, players were tasked with jumping 20,000 feet out of an airplane. Players would then continue on through the course with the help of video clues from TJ.

  • Stage 1: Players must run to the top of the ruins and donate a salt gem. At the top players must wait for the next member of the opposite sex available in order to continue. They must then run back down and donate 30 stones to the apacheta pile in order to stop their time.
  • Stage 2: From behind the designated line, pairs must toss their bola onto a pole. After each failed attempt the player must take a shot of fermented llama's milk. Once a pair has hooked their bola their time will be stopped.
  • Dirty Deed #1: The winners from Stage 1 must assign one of the other pairs an extra bola to toss onto their pole.
  • Stage 3: The winning pair from the last stage will separate and choose two new partners. The pairs will race to collect puzzle pieces to complete their board. Once the puzzle is completed their time will be stopped.
  • The Double Cross: Players will once again compete as individuals and draw from The Double Cross. The player who pulls the double cross may assign a five minute time penalty to the player of their choosing from the same sex.
  • Stage 4: Players must each race to find an emblem somewhere in the canyon that will allow them to complete the design of a totem pole. In order to retrieve their emblem they must climb to the top of the canyon using climbing gear. They must also memorize the pattern on a totem pole within the course in order to complete their puzzle. If a player's puzzle is incorrect they must run back to the totem pole before attempting again.
  • Stage 5: The winners from the last stage will now separate and choose two new partners. Each pair must run into a smokey structure and feel around until they can discover the word on the wall. Once they believe they know the word they must run outside and write the word on a board. If the pair guesses correctly, their time will be stopped. If they are incorrect they must run back inside before trying again.
  • Dirty Deed #2: The winners from Stage 5 will assign one player of the same sex to sleep on the ground all night while the other finalists will enjoy a comfortable bed.
  • Stage 6: Players must each put on safety gear and hold onto a sled that is being pulled by a truck for as long as they can and then run to the finish line. If they drop prematurely, they must run the remaining distance. TJ would later reveal that he would not be announcing the winners until the reunion.
