This season of The Challenge will pit 16 modern Real Worlders against 16 of the most well-known Are you the One? cast members. Each week the two teams will face each other in the challenge. The team that wins will earn a $20,000 in their bank account to split evenly amongst their players. Both teams will also vote in a male and female member of their team to compete against enemy players in The Shrine. Players that are victorious in The Shrine are able to return to their teams with the chance of earning money in the end. Eliminated players walk away with nothing. Players that survive until the final challenge of the season, The Showdown, are able to compete for an additional $150,000 added into their team's bank account. Second place team walks away with nothing but the money that has already been earned from challenges.
