“The Challenge Australia” has announced the 22 identities who will participate in the show, which will screen on Network 10 later this year.
“The Challenge” already has 38 seasons under its belt internationally, but this is the first time it has reached Australia. It pits stars of previous reality shows against each other in “the most unpredictable and demanding game of their lives”.
The show will be hosted by Brihony Dawson in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
It will see an ‘algorithm’ randomly pair challengers together to compete in physical contests. Contestants must also test strategies, survive eliminations and deal with cutthroat alliances in a bid to win the daily challenges.
The final male and female challengers will be declared Challenge Champions, winning $100,000 each in prize money. The winners will also be catapulted into the first ever “The Challenge: Global Championship”, where they will represent Australia and attempt to become the Challenge Word Champion.
Contestants include Emily Seebohm, an Olympic swimmer who has also appeared on “I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here” and “Australian Ninja Warrior”. She will be up against reality stars turned podcasters Brittany Hockley and Brooke Blurton, as well as serial reality contestants Jack Vidgen (“Australia’s Got Talent” Season 5, “I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here” Season 7, “Australian Ninja Warrior” Season 6 and “The Masked Singer Australia” Season 3) and Ciarran Stott (“The Bachelorette Australia” Season 5, “Bachelor in Paradise Australia” Season 3 and “The Bachelorette Sweden”).
Network 10 said “Australia’s most talked about” celebrities would be put to the test.
“With old rivalries, new alliances, messy exes, and fractured friendships to navigate, who has what it takes to go down in reality television history, as Australia’s first Challenge Champion?”
