The Challenge: All Stars Season 4 (Paramount Plus) Premieres April 10th

The long-awaited fourth season of “The Challenge: All Stars” is finally here. Variety can exclusively announce that the reality competition series will premiere with two back-to-back episodes on Wednesday, April 10, on Paramount+. After the premiere, new episodes will drop on Wednesdays on the streaming service.

Season 4 features “old-school legends, modern power players, redemption-seekers and ex-lovers,” competing for a $300,000 grand prize in Cape Town, South Africa. This season’s cast includes beloved vets who haven’t competed in many years, including Cara Maria Sorbello, Rachel Robinson, Adam Larson, Averey Tressler and Brandon Nelson.

Two cast members return after only one challenge; Kefla Hare, who debuted on “Road Rules: Down Under,” only competed in 1999’s “Real World vs. Road Rules,” while “The Real World: Miami” alum Flora Alekseyeun only played in 2002’s “Battle of the Seasons.”

As shown in the trailer, “All Stars” has added a new twist; each player must earn a star before heading to the final — but have the opportunity to steal each other’s, something that is likely to cause a stir in the house.

Season 4 will debut April 11 in the UK, Ireland, Australia, Latin America, Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

“The Challenge: All Stars,” created by Bunim-Murray Productions for MTV Entertainment Studios, is executive produced by Julie Pizzi, Ryan Smith, Fred Birckhead, Mark Long, Dan Caster and Leanne Mucci. Co-executive producers are Skye Topic, Rob Whitaker, Kristin Bihr, Micah Kehoe-Thompson, Alex Rosenbloom and Eric Spagnoletti. https://variety.com/gallery/the-chal...-all-stars-29/

Can a mod fix the date in the thread title. I forgot to format it correctly and I have a typo. I'm unable to edit it. Thanks!

Glad this is finally coming. Need to get the stink of the last Challenge season out of the room.

I haven't finished it yet, but it's not been great so far. They will start shooting season 40 in March.

Cara Maria, Laurel, and Nicole....what could go wrong?

I hope Tyrie continues his streak of being sent home first.

Edit to add....he was only first guy out in 3 of his 6 shows, but his best showing ever was making the fifth episode (the Island).

The Bad Girls have been reunited too (Rachel, Veronica, and Tina). Tyrie had just never had it for a guy that had his build, but The Challenge is made more for people with endurance than big strong guys.

The men's side is pretty weak this season. Leroy and Tony are probably the two best guys. Brad's lost a step. The women's side is deeper with Cara, Laurel, Kam, and Janelle. I'm just glad to see Averey back.

Whoa Flora from RW Miami definitely was a highlight of that era of Real World.I just hope she doesn't get hurt since she is almost her mid 50's. Had she been born 5-810years later she probably would fill a similiar role to what Coral/Tina/Veronica did in the early Challenge seasons.

Mark, Beth, and Syrus are all in the 50's and did ok. I'm sure Flora will be fine.

Jay is still super annoying. He does not belong on an All Stars season.

It's amazing how this keeps happening.

I'm liking this season so far. It's so much better than 39. It's nice to have a cast with personality besides a few annoying people. I won't criticize one of the annoying people since she's battling cancer right now. I'm so glad to see Cara and Averey back. They both did really well on the first daily challenge. Cara even beat the men.

So Leroy retired for what, 2 seasons? I was annoyed during his "final season" when he kept bringing up retiring in nearly every confessional bc I knew he'd be back. I'm just a little surprised it was this fast. He's the Brett Favre of The Challenge, minus the win.

I generally agree but… it’s been 3 years. When Double Agents was being filmed, the first season of All-Stars had not filmed or aired yet. Doing a season of this takes less time than a regular season. But then again… he’s back for 40 isn’t he? So just full of it.

They supposedly get paid more for All Stars. One reason he "retired" was he was really mad about MTV never doing anything to Camilia after she what she said to him on Dirty 30. I was surprised that he came back. He said he was done and going to start a family with Kam and be a barber. He either missed being on the show or he needed the money.

I'm surprised that Tony time was very abbreviated. Syrus time was too.

They're started to cast for All Stars 5 and there's quite a bit of fan outrage:
Spoiler:
They're trying to get Tori, Josh and quite a few people from season 39 on All Stars 5 and the vets and fans are pissed.

I used to like Brandon, but he showed why he never gets too far in the game. Yes, there's only one winner and you wanna make big moves, but you don't sell out your top ally especially early in the game.

I guess the Kenny and Evan ban is still in effect? Kenny always had the best commentary and one liners in his interviews when I watched these shows.

Yeah they're uninsurable unfortunately. When you have to give Tonya a big payout after what they did to her, no insurance company will cover you to be on the show.

Been a great season so far, but the format itself seems pretty flawed, like it's almost better until the tail end to try and be in the middle group then actually win a challenge especially if you don't have a star yet anyway.
