The Challenge: Invasion (MTV) -- premieres 2/7/17

Quote:
It’s almost time for the return of MTV’s The Challenge, and ahead of the show’s new season, EW can exclusively reveal the upcoming cast, not to mention the brand new twist.

The new season, titled The Challenge: Invasion will feature 18 series “underdogs” competing to earn their way out of The Shelter, their desolate, barebones accommodations in Thailand. If they’re able to battle their way out of The Shelter, they’ll land in the posh estate of The Oasis. Only 12 underdogs will earn their spot in The Oasis, but that’s only step one of their (literal) challenge.

The season’s twist involves a surprise, season-long attack from eight of the “most fearsome Challenge Champions,” including repeat champion Johnny “Bananas,” and the return of CT following his three-year absence as a competitor on the show.

For those who make it to the very end, they will have to compete in the show’s very first three-day challenge to take home the grand prize of $350,000.

Check out the entire cast below:

Champs
Ashley K (Real World: San Diego)
Johnny “Bananas”(Real World: Key West)
Camila (Spring Break Challenge)
Cara Maria (Fresh Meat 2)
CT (Real World: Paris)
Darrell (Road Rules: Campus Crawl)
Laurel (Fresh Meat 2)
Zach (Real World: San Diego)

Underdogs
Amanda (Are You The One? Season 3)
Anika (Real World: Bad Blood)
Anthony (Are You The One? Season 2)
Ashley (Real World: Ex-Plosion)
Bruno (Real World: Skeletons)
Cory (Real World: Ex-Plosion)
Dario (Are You The One? Season 2)
Hunter (Are You The One? Season 3)
Jenna (Real World: Ex-Plosion)
Kailah (Real World: Go Big or Go Home)
LaToya (Real World: St. Thomas)
Marie (Real World: St. Thomas)
Nelson (Are You The One? Season 3)
Nicole (Real World: Skeletons)
Shane (Road Rules: Campus Crawl)
Sylvia (Real World: Skeletons)
Theo (Real World: Bad Blood)
Tony (Real World: Skeletons)

And to give you an idea of what the season will be like, here’s a message from the champs to the underdogs:



The Challenge: Invasion kicks off with a two-hour premiere on Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 9 p.m. ET on MTV

I thought that Johnny Bananas was going to retire after the last season. Without Sara there, it won't be as good though.

How is Jenna considered an underdog at this point?

Laurel's looking good in that video.

But damn. I need to see some Bananas backlash.

Sounds fun, especially since it looks like they're shaking it up a bit. Like that Champ roster Although I don't recall Ashley K.

The Real World is unwatchable garbage. But the Challenge shows still bring the goods.

Ditto. Already looking better than the last one.

Ashley K was only on The Battle of the Seasons. Her team won. She's really good looking, but I don't know if she should really qualify as a champ since she won as a member of a 4 person team. Zach and Frank really carried that team...

I'm really looking forward to this. This is my favorite mtv show, but please no spoilers in the thread. A lot of us like to actually watch the show as it airs.....

Re: The Challenge: Invasion (MTV) -- premieres 2/7/17

I found the denouement of the last season so distasteful I'm not sure I can watch this show anymore especially since the perpetrator is back. Also, the editing of recent seasons has highlighted stupid irrelevant repetitive drama over the challenge portion of the show that I actually enjoy.

But Laurel is also back...

I think this will be a game time decision for me.

Cara is back so I'm going to watch and actually have somebody to root for. If we see the "nice" CT, I will root for him as well.
