The plot is going to stay the same. Win daily challenges, elimination tasks and move ahead in the game. Will there be gold skulls this time? Only time will tell. However, be prepared for insane twists.
As per the synopsis of the show -- "For the first time ever, the critically-acclaimed competition franchise will feature 17 international players alongside US players and is set to roll out globally across MTV's international networks in over 190 countries in the coming months.
The franchise that invented the reality competition genre continues to be a ratings juggernaut for MTV with a .94 full season average, making last season, 'Double Agents', one of the highest rated seasons in 8 years. On the heels of MTV finishing 2Q as the #1 cable network with P18-34, a new era of 'The Challenge' kicks off with 19 action-packed episodes featuring 34 challengers from around the world. Set in the picturesque Mediterranean coast of Croatia, elite U.S. Agents join forces with an assortment of International Operatives, all armed with killer competitive instincts. With the assignment constantly evolving, these agents will be tested both mentally and physically to win their share of one million dollars in this epic new chapter of 'The Challenge' spy games."
Thomas Joseph Lavin is a BMX rider who has been the host of 'The Challenge' since season 11. As a BMX rider, Lavin is a former DK Dirt Circuit Champion, a Gravity Games winner and a CFB Champion. Known as the 'King of Dirt', he's won 3 bronze, one silver and three gold medals at the X Games, an annual extreme sports event hosted by ESPN
While TJ Lavin will be resuming hosting duties in the upcoming season.
This season, the show's veterans are returning in hopes of winning the massive $1 million cash prize.
Some of the familiar faces that fans might recognise are that of Tori Deal, Nany Gonzalez, Aneesa Ferreira, Ashley Mitchell, Kaycee Clark, Amanda Garcia, Big T, Nelson Thomas, Cory Wharton, Josh Martinez, Kyle Christie, Fessy Shafaat, CT Tamburello, Devin Walker and Nam Vo.
This will be Aneesa's 16th season. When she was eliminated in the Fire Escape task by Tula 'Big T' Fazakarley, Aneesa broke down because she went 14 seasons without winning one. Let's hope this time it will be different for her.
The rookies this season are Michaela Bradshaw ('Survivor'), Michele Fitzgerald ('Survivor'), Tacha Akide ('Big Brother Nigeria'), Emy Alupei ('Survivor: Romania'), Berna Canbeldek ('Survivor: Turkey'), Priscilla Anyabu ('Love Island U.S.'), Tracy Candela ('Love Island Germany'), Bettina Buchanan ('Paradise Hotel Sweden'), Esther Agunbiade ('Big Brother Nigeria'), Lauren Coogan ('Love Island U.S.'), Corey Lay ('12 Dates of Christmas'), Jeremiah White ('Love Island U.S.'), Tommy Sheenan ('Survivor'), Gabo Szabo ('Warsaw Shore, Celeb Get Me Out of Here Hungary'), Hughie Maughan ('Big Brother U.K., Dancing With the Stars U.K.'), Emmanuel Neagu ('Survivor: Romania'), Logan Sampedro ('Survivor: Spain'), Kelz Dyke ('Too Hot to Handle U.K.') and Renan Hellemans ('Ex on the Beach Double Dutch Belgium')
With 17 veterans and 17 rookies taking centre stage, 'The Challenge: Spies, Lies & Allies' promises to be one of the most explosive seasons yet. With teams facing off in a range of high intensity and high stakes challenges, the race is on to see who comes out on top.
