The losing team has to send one player from the losing team into The Pit, while the winning team has to send another player from the losing team into The Pit. If a player loses in The Pit, that player is not only eliminated, but so is their bloodline. The final five teams reverted to their pairs of two.

Invasion of the Champions: The game started off with 18 Underdogs players who have yet to win a challenge who get dropped off a boat and onto a beach, where they were living in "The Shelter.
The male and female winners of the challenge would be safe from elimination, and earn their ticket to "The Oasis" — the season house. The last-place male and female finishers automatically went straight into elimination for the first challenge. In the second challenge, the challenge winners will choose a player of the opposite gender to go into the elimination.

The top three winners from each challenge, no matter the gender, form the "Troika". The loser of the challenge automatically goes into elimination. Depending on whether it's a male or female elimination, the Troika nominates three players to go into "The Ring".
Later, the three nominees sit with the Troika in "The Inquisition," to give their case as to why they should stay in the game and why one or both of the other nominees should go in. In The Ring, the Troika votes for one of the three players from The Inquisition to go against the last place finisher in the challenge.

Boston and Road Rules: Producers set up a face-off where both teams would compete for a cash prize. The intensely competitive challenge brought in high ratings and this set ideas in motion to produce yet another spin-off series.
Seattle and Road Rules: Down Under inthe Challenge series was born in with Road Rules: All Starsand featured cast members from five different seasons of The Real World. After All Stars, producers decided to include former castmembers of Road Rules in the series as well.
In the next season, two six-member teams were sent around the world in a competition to see which show could best the other in head-to-head competition. The series followed the format for three years and brought in hugely successful ratings. Following the hugely successful boom of reality television in the new millenniumproducers decided to add new elements to the series.
Inproduction began on Battle of the Seasons. This season, the first to depart from the previous six-member structure, brought in a large group of former cast members to compete in one location.
Players "draft" cast members, a la fantasy baseball and cast members are given points for performing certain tasks, such as cursing or "hooking up. Both the Gauntlet and Inferno seasons contained "showdown" matches between members of the two opposing teams.
The cast member who lost the showdown would be sent home. The Gauntlet seasons featured an intra-cast dynamic as teams were forced to vote off cast members within their own groups into the showdown, while the Inferno seasons featured an inter-cast dynamic as teams were forced to vote off cast members from the other group into the showdown.
While Road Rules had stopped production until further notice after its thirteenth season, Real World had just finished wrapping its sixteenth season in Austin, Texas. Road Rules had a fourteenth, and final, season in External episodes[ edit ] While internal episodes are the usual and feature an original mission, voting process, elimination round, and surrounding social lives between the season's contestants, external episodes feature the season's contestants reviewing themselves in internal episodes and adding feedback.
This is typically combined with video clips from the internal episodes in question. The Challenge has three types of these external episodes, an aftershow that takes place sporadically in the form of a series throughout the entire season, a post-show reunion of notable cast members from that season, and a bonus footage special.
The Challenge lingo[ edit ] Veterans and rookies[ edit ] Two commonly used terms on the show are "veterans" or vets and "rookies. Rookies are thought of as players that have done none of the above.
The most vulnerable rookies are those who have just recently completed their respective shows season and are participating in the game for their very first time; often they are the first to be singled out and targeted by everyone else due to their lack of bonds with existing cast. However, at least one rookie has reached the final challenge on almost every season. Alliance[ edit ] Another commonly used term on the show is "alliance.
These contestants have colluded together so as to increase their overall chances of winning the season game. But for safety in numbers offered by the collusion, the show's contestants would run the risk of victimization to the game's politics and popularity factors.
Politics plays a role due to the show's formats in which options of who is thrown into elimination rounds and other determining factors are left up to challengers themselves. Alliances are typically formed through pacts and negotiations made among certain contestants early on in the game. Alliance operations can range from saving alliance members, throwing missions for the purposes of advancing the alliance, picking and choosing based upon alliance involvement as opposed to levels of performance, etc.
In early seasons of the show, alliances were heavily frowned upon by most of the contestants. As such, alliances used to be carried out with much more secrecy, craft, and deviousness. In fact, many of the earliest alliances on the show were formed to sabotage members of one's own team who were perceived as weak. Once exposed, alliances typically came as offensive and shocking to those not involved. Since the later seasons, however, alliances have become a norm among the show's contestants, so much so that most contestants are expected to join an alliance upon beginning out a season.
Ashley and Hunter had a romantic fling on Invasion of the Champions. After ending things, there was hostility, where Ashley claimed she was using Hunter to advance in the game, and Hunter called Ashley disposable.
Dirty 30, before voting Veronica into elimination, CT claimed that she was weak and nobody would want her on their team.
Veronica won her elimination and would ironically secure her team the victory at the next challenge and sent CT straight to Redemption. Da'Vonne orchestrated Jozea's eviction on Big Brother 18, claiming she was protecting herself by getting him evicted.
Derrick and Tori were dating going into XXX: After Derrick was eliminated early in the game, Tori cheated on him with Jordan during the remainder of the show. Tori also claimed that Derrick hacked into her phone on the Dirty 30 reunion, a claim that Derrick denied.
On Vendettas, Joss and Sylvia were initially friendly, but Joss burned a bridge with Sylvia when he and Brad chose to vote her into elimination to save themselves. A remorseful Joss tried to reason with Sylvia that it was purely a gameplay move, and Sylvia lashed out, not wanting to hear his explanation. Natalie and Paulie clashed several times during Big Brother 18, getting into heated arguments and working to evict each other from the house.
Paulie infamously said to Natalie, "You are about as fake as those things on your chest. On the first season of the American version of Ex on the Beach, Angela and Faith butted heads when Faith went on a date with Angela's love interest, and when Faith decided to vote opposing to Angela, who was trying to evict her ex, Derrick, from the house. Cara Maria and Marie have a long history of declaring their dislike and mistrust of each other, stemming back from XXX: Dirty 30, Jemmye pulled the double cross and betrayed Jenna, sending her into elimination against her best friend Kailah.
Kayleigh later quit the game after feeling bullied by the girls. After being eliminated, Melissa returned for the final challenge as a mercenary and awarded Kam with a grenade punishment that had ultimately cost her a spot in the Final 4 and lost all of her bank account. Challenge games[ edit ] Opening Challenge: Half the cast is buried underground in caskets in a graveyard, and their partners have to dig them out.
The partners who are above ground have to use walkie-talkies and the voices of their below-ground partners are disguised, so the digging partner is not sure who their partner is until they are unburied.
The buried teammate must instruct their teammate where they are located in the graveyard. The last two teams to dig their partner out are automatically eliminated, while the winning team has to eliminate one additional team.
The competitors' teams are split into two roles: The contestants are harnessed on top of a circular platform suspended in midair.
The Pusher must push the Swinger off the platform for them to collect rings hanging in the middle of the platform, which they then must hand back to the Pusher. The team that collects the most rings in the shortest amount of time wins.
This is a purge challenge where large replicas of steaks with climbing holds, and ropes, are hung over water about 40 feet. Teams must jump from the platform onto the steaks, and from the steaks to ropes, alternating until they get to the other side of the platform. If one of the teammates falls, they are both disqualified and their score only counts how far they made it.
The team that gets both members to the other side the fastest wins, and the team that falls soonest is sent straight to Redemption. Teams must go in rounds finishing an obstacle course on top of a moving train.
