Season 33 of MTV’s The Challenge is a little over two weeks away, but the spoilers have started to leak. War of the Worlds, ‘The Challenge’ franchise’s newest theme, will take place in Namibia, and will once again be hosted by T.J. Lavin. As Champion Daily previously reported, War of the Worlds will boast 34 competitors, split down the middle between veterans and rookies, better known as prospects.
Leaks are suggesting the veterans and prospects will be paired up in teams of two, even suggesting the prospects will choose their veteran partners at the beginning of the game.
The teams for The Challenge: War of the Worlds are as follows:
Amanda Garcia and Alán Valdez (Telemundo personality), Ashley Mitchell and Chase McNary (The Bachelorette, Ex on the Beach), Cara Maria Sorbello and Theo Campbell (Love Island), Chris “CT” Tamburello and Julia Nolan (Big Brother), Da’Vonne Rogers and Stephen Bear (Geordie Shore), Hunter Barfield and Georgia Harrison (Love Island), Jenna Compono and Gus Smyrnios (Floribama Shore), Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio and Morgan Willett (Big Brother Over the Top), Kam Williams and Ashley Cain (Ex on the Beach U.K.), Kyle Christie and Mattie Breaux (Party Down South), Leroy Garrett and Shaleen Sutherland (The Bachelor Canada), Nany González and Turabi “Turbo” Çamkiran (Survivor Turkey), Natalie Negrotti and JP Andrade (Ex on the Beach Brazil), Paulie Calafiore and Natalie “Ninja” Duran (American Ninja Warrior), Wes Bergmann and Dee Nguyen (Geordie Shore), and Zach Nichols and Zahida Allen (Ex on the Beach).
Noteably absent from the list are Big Brother alum, Josh Martinez and Liz Nolan, although both are listed as official cast for ’The Challenge’ the two were eliminated in the first challenge of the season, which was a rookie purge. Purges (a new norm for The Challenge) send contenders home the first day without the option of returning.
The last leak we were able to find, shows a coliseum style arena called “The Killing Floor” where teams will face off against one another. Spoilers are also suggesting that toward the season’s end, it will be every man/woman for themselves, pitting every remaining player against each other.
