FormatEdit

This season featured 16 Challenge veterans and 18 prospects - new Challenge competitors from around the world. For the first ten episodes, the players competed in male/female pairs. Each veteran player paired with a prospect of the opposite sex. The Prospect picked their alumni partner based on the finish order of the opening "Impending Dune" challenge. Once in their pairs, the main phase of the game began. The main elements of the game are as follows:

  • Daily Missions: Each round the pairs will compete in the daily challenge. The top 3 pairs are immune from elimination and form the Tribunal for that round of play.
  • Tribunal: The Tribunal will collectively nominate three pairs to nominate for the elimination round. The nominated pairs then face the Tribunal's interrogation with each nominee having the chance to plea their case as to why they should not be voted-in to the elimination.
  • Eliminations (The Killing Floor): At "The Killing Floor", the members of the tribunal each individually and publicly vote for a nominated pair to enter the elimination round. The nominated team must then call-out any non-immune pair, challenging them to the elimination. The losing pair is eliminated from the game, while the winner stays in the game and is given "The Relic" - which awards them immunity in the next round of play.

During the 10th episode of the season, the 7 remaining pairs were disbanded, with the 14 remaining players playing the rest of the competition as individuals - with players competing in challenges as individuals and eliminated as individuals. The game format remains mostly the same, but with each round of play being designated as a male or female round and only players of the designated gender are at risk of being eliminated, but any player can be part of that round's Tribunal. Additionally, the relic is no longer awarded to an individual elimination winner.

When eight players remain, they will compete individually in the Final Challenge for their share of the $1,000,000 prize. First place will receive $750,000. Second place will receive $200,000, and third place will receive $50,000. The other five, receive nothing.

Twists
  • Purge: Some challenges will be designated as a Purge challenge - sudden death challenges the losers are immediately eliminated. Two Purge challenge were held during the game:
    • In the "Impending Dune" challenge, the worst finishing male and female prospect were eliminated before pairs were drafted.
    • In the "Judgement Day" challenge, the worst finishing male and female were eliminated in the Penultimate Challenge of the game.
  • Double Elimination: The "Ring Tossed" challenge was a Double Elimination in which three teams competed and four players were eliminated (opposed to the normal two players). The pair called-out by the nominated pair must also call-out a third pair - meaning 3 teams would compete to stay in the game. Then the three players of each gender will compete against each other in the elimination and only the winner of each gendered heat remaining in the game. Should members of two different pairs win their gendered-heat, they will form a new pair and continue in the game, while their original partner is eliminated.

GameplayEdit

Challenge gamesEdit

  • Impending Dune: Played in separate male/female heats, players must race down a sand dune and retrieve a ball that has rolled down from the top of the dune. Players must then race back to the top of the dune with a ball to retrieve puzzle pieces, then race back down with their puzzle pieces to the bottom of the dune to a puzzle station. There are two more Prospects than Veterans — one male and one female, so the last-place finishers of each heat are eliminated from the competition.
    • Winners: Paulie & Da'Vonne
    • Eliminated: Josh & Liz
  • Arms-a-geddon Tired: Played in two heats of 5 minutes each, each team competes against another team in a tug-of-war. Each rope is 400 ft. long, after the 5 minutes is over, each competitor's length of rope will be combined with their partner's which forms their team's total length. The three teams with the longest combined length of rope will form the Tribunal.
    • Winners: Cara Maria & Theo, Bananas & Morgan, and Amanda & Josh
  • Search & Destroy: Played in 4 heats, competitors must retrieve a hidden ball in a stone graveyard and return it to their partner. Their partner must then go through a mud pit and other competitors to reach the safe zone so that their team can move on to the next heat. After each heat, 3 teams will be eliminated from the mission, as the number of balls hidden, decreases. The last three teams who make it through all 4 heats will form the Tribunal.
    • Winners: Paulie & Natalie D., Wes & Dee, and Kam & Ashley C.
  • Fallout: Played one team at a time, competitors must race to touch a floating buoy across an elevated obstacle. Each team must select one person to build momentum on a pendulous rod and one to jump. The fastest three teams to reach the buoy formed the tribunal.
    • Winners: Paulie & Natalie D., Nany & Turbo, and Hunter & Georgia
  • Tired Out: Chained together, each team must race 200 yards across the desert to their stack of color-coded tires. They must then climb up a sand dune to an answer key of a tire pyramid they have to assemble. After they have memorized the answer key, they have to pick out a tire and race back to the starting line with that tire in order to build the pyramid. 14 tires are needed to complete the pyramid. The first three teams to complete the pyramid correctly will form the Tribunal.
    • Winners: Paulie & Natalie D., Nany & Turbo, and Cara Maria & Theo
  • Doom Buggy: Played two people at a time, each contestant must climb across ten tires and unhook them while being dragged across the desert at 30 kilometers per hour. The three teams to unhook the most tires will form the Tribunal.
    • Winners: Hunter & Georgia, Wes & Dee, and Kyle & Mattie
  • Eye in the Sky: Played two teams at a time, each team has one member blindfolded and another wearing a VR device that shows footage from the blindfolded teammate's perspective. The blindfolded partner must guide their partner across an elevated platform. The three teams with the fastest time form the Tribunal.
    • Winners: Wes & Dee, Jenna & Gus, and Da'Vonne & Bear
  • Brain Freeze: Each team member alternates running 100 yards into the freezing ocean water to retrieve a puzzle piece, and bringing it back to their puzzle station. They are a total of eight puzzle pieces that need to be retrieved. Once they have retrieved all eight pieces, the teams can then begin to solve their puzzle tower. The first three teams to solve their puzzle tower correctly will form the Tribunal.
    • Winners: Wes & Dee, Nany & Turbo, and Cara Maria & Theo
  • Road Warrior: Played one team at a time, competitors must swing back and forth on top of two semi-trucks moving at 50 mph transferring rings over to their partner. There are sixteen rings total and the three teams who transfer the most rings the fastest will form the Tribunal.
    • Winners: Hunter & Georgia, Kyle & Mattie, and Cara Maria & Theo
  • Fandemonium: There is a giant 150-foot hallway that has balls at one end of it. There will be 3 giant hurricane fans that will blast wind at the players. The three fastest players that deposit their balls in 5 minutes will form the Tribunal.
    • Winners: Paulie, Theo, and Turbo
  • Highway to Hell: Players will be put on the roof of a car that is on a track, drifting. On top of the car is a puzzle. The 3 fastest players who finish the puzzle within a 3-minute time limit will win the challenge and form the Tribunal.
    • Winners: Mattie, Wes, and Dee
  • Day of Wreckoning: In teams of two, each duo will run to the nearby junkyard to collect trash. Once they have done so, they will run back to their dumpster to deposit their junk. The three teams who transfers the heaviest junk in one hour will form the Tribunal.
    • Winners: Paulie & Georgia, Turbo & Natalie D., and Da'Vonne & Wes
  • Crash Landing: Players will be placed on a rotating airplane and attempt to solve a puzzle the fastest. Once they are done, they will jump off the plane and into the water. The first male and female to do so will earn their spot in the final and the first three players will form the Tribunal.
    • Winners: Turbo, Cara Maria, and Paulie
    • Immune to Finals: Turbo and Cara Maria
  • Judgement Day: Players must start on one of three containers. Once the challenge starts, players must run and jump off the first container into the water and swim around a buoy and then climbing up the second container. Once on the second container, players must rope swing to the third container. On the third container, which is at a severe angle, players must grab a ring and slide down the container, back into the water and swim back to the second.

Final ChallengeEdit

The final challenge, The Death Path, was competed by the remaining eight players individually. The path was over 50 miles long. Each player's individual times were recorded and added up to determine the winner of the season at the end of the final. During the final, competitors were eliminated until four remaining competitors crossed the finish line where the results were announced.

Day OneEdit

First Leg: Players begin the final by running and cycling through a six-mile loop four times (24 miles overall). In the middle of the figure-eight loop there are five checkpoints each player must complete. Players can complete checkpoints at any stage during the 24 miles. If the checkpoint they wish to complete is currently occupied, they may wait, or continue with their 24 miles. Each checkpoint has a 20-minute time limit before players time out. Unbeknownst to the players, the Top 3 players of this stage would form the Tribunal for an Instant Elimination.

Checkpoints
  • On Point: Players stand behind a starting line and throw one ring onto each hook pointing out from a board.
  • Pyramid Scheme: Players must complete a 5x5 grid puzzle so that each row and column has one of each color.
  • Rampage: Players push a ball to the top of a ramp and into a basket using a provided pole.
  • Skulled Out: Players must complete a vertical puzzle to form a picture of a skull.
  • So Rolled: Players stand behind a startling line and roll a tire through a hole.
  • Tribunal: Theo, Turbo & Wes
  • Eliminated: Georgia (8th place — DQ), Mattie (7th place — Quit)

Instant Elimination - Walk Tiny: Players hold on to a 50-foot rope that is connected to a monster truck. The truck slowly drives thus taking the players on a walk. The first person to fall or drop the rope would be eliminated.

  • Played by: Hunter vs. Natalie D.
    • Winner: Natalie D.
    • Eliminated: Hunter (6th place)

Day TwoEdit

Geography Trivia: Players are asked a series of multiple-choice geography trivia questions. If they answer a question incorrectly, they would be eliminated from the checkpoint. The last player standing would be driven for the first mile of the Second Leg in a dune buggy while the remaining four players must traverse the sand dunes on foot.

  • Winner: Cara Maria

Second Leg: For the second leg, players had to travel on foot over a series of sand dunes, completing the checkpoints that the players encounter.

  • Battle Ball: Players must wait for the next player to arrive. The two players place colored balls one at a time into a slot attempting to line four balls in a row (similar to Connect Four). The first player to line up four of their colored balls in a row is allowed to continue while the loser must wait for the next player to arrive to play again. The player who loses the final battle will receive a five minute time penalty, which must be served before continuing.
  • Eating: The first player to arrive at the checkpoint may eat as much or as little of the provided food items as they like. Once finished, they must divide up the remaining plates of food among the remaining four players. Once the remaining players reach the checkpoint, they must eat everything they have been assigned before continuing.

Final Leg: Players run five miles down a beach to reach four kayaks. Along the way, there is a math problem they must solve to unlock a kayak and paddle towards a boat wreck. As there are only four kayaks, the remaining player without a kayak will be eliminated. From the boat wreck, the remaining four players run down the beach to a lighthouse where the finish line is set up. Once the final four players have reached the finish line, their total times will be added together to determine the winner of War of the Worlds.

  • Eliminated: Cara Maria (5th place)

Final ResultsEdit

  • Winner: Turbo ($750,000)
  • Runner-Up: Theo ($200,000)
  • Third Place: Wes ($50,000)
  • Fourth Place: Natalie D. ($0)

ControversyEdit

Cast member Amanda Garcia claimed on her social media that fellow castmates Johnny Devenanzio, Theo Campbell and Kyle Christie used tape to cover her mouth and tie her against her will after an argument.
