What Is 'The Challenge: USA'?

The premise of the show is that cast members will compete in a number of extraordinarily difficult physical challenges, trying to avoid elimination and reach the final. Only one person can win the competition, and they will receive the title Challenge Champion as well as getting the grand prize of $500,000.

The cast members are set up in pairs, in which they must complete the physical challenges and avoid being eliminated. Furthermore, this iteration of The Challenge also requires the contestants to win money, each will start with $1,000 in their personal Challenge accounts, and to reach the final they must each have $5,000. There are several ways in which they can win more money. One is by winning an elimination, the other is by winning a challenge.

The Challenge: USA will be hosted by T.J. Lavin.
