It is time everyone favorite twice a year sporting sensation-- MTV The Challenge!  This season will debut on August 11, 2021 at 7:00 CST on MTV.  The Challenge was filmed in Croatia and has a cast of 15 veteran challengers and 19 rookie challengers.

 

The previous two seasons of The Challenge were filmed in bunkers and had very little to do outdoors because of the global pandemic- COVID_19.  Now the socialization aspect is back to what long time The Challenge watchers are used to know.  So that means there will be more alcohol and more drama.

But don't misunderstand me when I don't talk about the athleticism of these challengers first. The things these people put their bodies through is incredible.  The are definitely athletes-- that is why The Challenge has been called the 5th major sport in the United States.

WHO IS ON THE CHALLENGE?

Well, like we mentioned, there are 34 Challengers and for the first time the Rookies out number the Veterans.  The large cast is not the largest cast in Challenge history-- that honor goes to Season 6 and 9.  This season is tied for 2nd for the largest number of participants.

The 15 veterans are made up of mostly common names to the Challenge watchers-- people like C.T., Cory, Nelson, Devin, Kyle, Josh, Fessy, Anessa, Nany, Tori, and Ashley.  Just to name a few.

The Rookies have some promising talent coming out from there side... take a look.

And of course there is T.J. Lavin who is back for his 12th season hosting The Challenge.
