Format

This season follows the same format as the previous Champs vs. Stars with the following differences:

  • The players will not play as Champs and Stars, but as mixed teams of Red and Blue. In Episode 7, the teams were dispersed and players were put into pairs.
  • Power Play: The MVP will be given a power play each challenge.
  • After the elimination, the team can choose whether or not they want to save their teammate and allow them to return to the game. Each team only has one opportunity to save an eliminated player.

Notes

  • Elimination losers that are crossed out indicate that the player was saved by their team.
  • The players originally played as Champs and Stars in the "Stair Down" challenge. CT & Tony had the fastest times and became captains of the Red and Blue teams respectively. The winners of the challenge were determined by the fastest overall time after teams were selected.
  • After multiple confrontations with multiple cast members, Hennessy decided to withdraw from the competition in Episode 3 as she felt it was not best for her to stay.
  • As the Episode 3 MVP, CT's Power Play was to grant one female immunity from the elimination. He decided to give the immunity to Selita.
  • Aneesa was removed from the competition in Episode 4 after breaking her ankle in the "Face Off" challenge. The female elimination was cancelled as a result.
  • In Episode 4, Louise was given a special Power Play where she can trade a female on her team for another from the Red Team. She decided to trade Tori for Ashley.
  • In Episode 5, Daniel's Power Play allowed him to switch the previous Red Team Arena nominee, Jozea, with any other male on the team. He ultimately decided to nominate Devin.
  • In Episode 6, Drake's Power Play allowed him the replace either Ashley or Lil Mama with any other female from the Blue and Red teams, respectively, to compete in the Arena. He ultimately decided to replace Lil Mama's nomination with Kailah.
  • In Episode 7, all players were split into pairs. The pairs selections were determined by each player's rank on the leaderboard.
  • In Episode 8, Casper's Power Play was to eliminate two of the bottom three teams from the game at the "Spot On" challenge. He chose to eliminate Brooke & Shane and Lil Mama & Tori, deciding to save Drake & Kailah.
