The hit competition series is back for it’s 37th season next month for all of the explosions, bone breaks, fights, and hookups (including a hookup that viewers have seen blossoming since season 35).
PEOPLE described the upcoming season as “The 19 episodes include a cast of 34 members who filmed on the coast of Croatia. “Elite U.S. Agents join forces with an assortment of International Operatives, all armed with killer competitive instincts,” the press release reveals. “With the assignment constantly evolving, these agents will be tested both mentally and physically to win their share of $1 million in this epic new chapter of The Challenge spy games.” “
The season sees the return of fan favourites such as Amanda Garcia, known famously for bringing the DRAMA, fresh from a win Chris “C.T.” Tamburello, Ashley “Millionaire” Mitchell, the man Cory Wharton from countless (if you cannot count past 3) reality shows, and the tiny powerhouse Big T.
Additionally, we will be seeing one of the bigger rookie (and global rookie) invasions with stars from the likes of Big Brother: Nigeria, 12 Dates Of Christmas, Survivor: Romania and Love Island US.
