MTV has announced the cast for the 32nd season of The Challenge: Final Reckoning – which will be the third and final season in a trilogy that started with Dirty 30, then continued with Vendettas – and they are ready to compete in South Africa while facing the consequences of their actions. During the first two chapters, everyone competed on their own. But this time, the only way a player can win the $1 million prize is to join forces with their biggest rival and compete in pairs.
Amanda Garcia and Zach Nichols
Garcia is an Are You the One alum and Nichols is from the Real World: San Diego. She never backs down from a fight, and he got second place last season.
Faith Stowers and Angela Babicz
Fans know Stowers from Vanderpump Rules and Ex on the Beach. She spent six years in the Army and is an accomplished college athlete. Babicz, from Ex on the Beach, is a mix of sensitive and tough, but will she be able to prey on people’s weaknesses?
Kyle Christie and Brad Fiorenza
Christie, from MTV UK’s Geordie Shore, is a hard-partying ladies’ man who made it to the final on Vendettas. Real World: San Diego’s Fiorenza didn’t win it all last year, but he did find love with Britni Thornton.
Britni Thornton and Chuck Mowery
Thornton and Mowery are both alums of Are You The One?, and she is a free spirit who is always down for a good time, while he is a Challenge rookie this season. Thornton has spent the offseason training with her BF Brad Fiorenza, and Mowery just recovered from a cliff diving accident that almost ended in a leg amputation.
Natalie Negrotti and Paulie Calafiore
Negrotti and Calafiore are both from Big Brother 18. She stole Johnny Bananas’ heart last season, but made enemies along the way and has a reputation for being fake. Calafiore is a Challenge rookie who is brash and loud, and isn’t afraid to speak his mind at all times.
Da’Vonne Rogers and Jozea Flores
Rogers and Flores are also Big Brother alumni, and she is sassy, manipulative, and not afraid of anyone. Meanwhile, he wants to win so he can invest the prize money into his music career.
Tori Deal and Derrick Henry
Deal was originally on Are You The One?, and she took home third in her rookie season on The Challenge. Deal and Henry used to be an item, but when she made it to the final on Dirty 30, she dumped him for first place winner, Jordan.
Jenna Compono and Jemmye Carroll
Compono is from the Real World: Ex-Plosion and she is used to making the Final, but she has never won. She is now dating Zach Nichols, and has dreams of them both making it to the end. Carroll, from Real World: New Orleans, is a Southern sass queen who loves gossip, jokes, and drama.
Sylvia Elsrode and Joss Mooney
Elsrode, from The Real World: Skeletons, is a wedding planner who went home early last season because of a medical situation. Fans know Mooney as the hot model and Instagram star from Ex on the Beach who was a hit with the ladies during his rookie season on Vendettas.
Kayleigh Morris and Kailah Casillas
Another Ex on the Beach alum, Morris got involved in a love triangle with Nelson and Bananas during Vendettas, that resulted in her quitting the game. Casillas, originally from The Real World: Go Big or Go Home, is a polarizing personality who has fearless game moves that rub people the wrong way. But, she managed to make the Final and ended up in fourth place.
Johnny Bananas Devenanzio and ?
Devenanzio was originally on the Real World: Key West, but now he is the biggest winner in Challenge history. However, he hasn’t won a season since stealing all of the money from his Rivals III partner, Sarah. MTV has yet to announce the 30th cast member of the show, which will be Bananas’ partner.
Could it be his former friend and Vendettas foe, Tony Raines?
Melissa Reeves and Kam Williams
Reeves is an Ex on the Beach alum, while Williams is from Are You The One? She is a former pageant queen turned carefree party girl and DJ, who lives to socialize and flirt. But, she did go toe-to-toe with Williams, a cutthroat political strategist, on Vendettas.
Nelson Thomas and Shane Landrum
Thomas, from Are You the One?, came in second place on Invasion, and the hot-tempered Landrum, from Road Rules: Campus Crawl, has a penchant for drama.
Veronica Portillo and CT Tamburello
Road Rules: Semester at Sea alum Portillo was a standout during The Challenge’s early days when she earned multiple titles. And Tamburello, from the Real World: Paris, also has multiple Challenge wins full of fearsome elimination performances and legendary fights.
Cara Marie Sorello and Marie Roda
Sorello, from Fresh Meat II, won last season and is one of the most accomplished show veterans of all time. And Roda, from Real World: St. Thomas, is a fiercely loyal contestant who sometimes forgets to look out for herself first.
