MTV just announced the cast for The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2, and the new season is set to premiere next week. But, the network is now scrambling after an epic leak just hit the internet.
According to The Daily Star, every detail of the upcoming season – the eviction order, the elimination match-ups, and the winning team – has appeared online.
Bear’s back after an explosive rookie season to prove he can really compete, but if UK trivia is involved, he might run into trouble.

“Producers will be raging. The show hasn’t even aired yet but already details are all over the internet – it’s really not a great start,” says an insider. “For viewers to know how it ends before the cast has even been introduced on TV is pretty embarrassing.”
The show decided to go old school this season and start with the entire cast split into two teams, one from America and one from the UK. Some of the British faces are Celebrity Big Brother winner Stephen Bear, Love Island’s Georgia Harrison, Idris Virgo, and Theo Campbell, Geordie Shore’s Zahida Allen and Kyle Christie, and Sean Lineker from Shipwrecked.
The American team features Challenge veterans Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio, Ashley Mitchell, Paulie Calafiore, Wes Bergmann, Kam Williams, and Leroy Garett.
In a recent promo, Bear brags that “The UK is better than America at everything,” but the first person booted off is a Brit. However, a member of team UK does make the final. That’s all the spoilers we are willing to reveal.
There will be drama this season as Challenge legend Laurel Stucky is returning and on the same team as Cara Maria Sorbello – her former friend – and her ex-boyfriend Jordan Wiseley.
“Laurel and I were on good terms before starting the game,” explained Wiseley. “Laurel’s a competitor, and so am I. In any Challenge, you need any advantage that you can get, so it was kind of like this unspoken bond. Like, ‘Hey, we have this mutual respect, so you’re good, I’m good. Let’s do the damn thing.'”

As for Sorbello, she and Calafiore are back together, and she says that fans will see a new side of her this season. She admits that Calafiore had a hand in “99.9% of everything” fans will see, and she also declared that the UK team is Instagram muscles, and the USA has a “team of assassins.”
The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2 premieres Wednesday, August 28th on MTV, and all of the episodes this season will have a running time of 90 minutes instead of an hour.
