According to People, former Bachelorette star Josh Murray will also join the competition this season. Murray was last seen on the set of Bachelor in Paradise and will be competing for the charity, Extra Special People. Other charities include the likes of Young Women’s Leadership Network, World Wildlife Foundation, Black Girls Rock, Hope Sports, MVP Vets and Players, Nevada SPCA, Team Hope NOLA, Ky Cares Foundation and Covenant House.
In addition to the celebrity competitors, WWE star Mike “The Miz” Mizanin is returning to host the new season of The Challenge. Mizanin rose to fame during his stint on Real World: Back to New York and hosted a Challenge reunion a few years ago. In speaking about returning to MTV, Mizanin expressed his excitement to host again and admitted that his time on the network gave him the confidence he needed to pursue a career in professional wrestling. With Mizanin back and a host of celebrities thrown into the mix, this could turn out to be one of the most interesting seasons to date. Whether or not anyone can outperform CT and Johnny Bananas, however, is yet to be seen.
Fans can watch their favorite celebrities and reality stars go head-to-head when the new season of The Challenge: Champs V. Stars premieres on MTV November 21.
