“The Challenge” (previously known as “Real World/Road Rules Challenge”) has captivated fans since 1998 and throughout the course of an amazing 37 seasons with tough physical competitions and interpersonal conflict.
All-stars from ‘The Challenge’ and other reality shows like ‘Big Brother, Survivor, and Amazing Race’ have starred on the MTV show throughout its 37 seasons, according to GQ.
According to E! Online, each season of the show has a distinct theme, such as “Rivals” or “Battle of the Exes,” that helps fans distinguish one season from the next.
Iceland, for example, is the setting for a different series every time. One season saw players dive into the frigid waters of Iceland to gather puzzle pieces with only a short supply of air, making it one of television’s most popular reality series ever.
When Will the Challenge’s 38th Season Premiere?
Given the show’s long history and continued popularity, we wouldn’t be shocked if MTV announced its renewal of “The Challenge” sooner rather than later. In any case, it’s impossible to know for sure when the show will air, or even if there will be one at all.
If we look at prior seasons’ release dates, we can concoct a few plausible hypotheses as to when the 38th and hopefully final season of Game of Thrones will be released. On April 21, 2021, “The Challenge” Season 36, “Double Agents,” came to an end.
For Season 37, MTV revealed the cast and premiere date in July 2021 and the season premiered in August, according to Entertainment Weekly.
So, presuming that Season 38 will follow the same production schedule as Season 37, you should probably expect to hear more about it soon, and the season itself should debut somewhere in the spring or early summer of 10 June 2022.
Filming isn’t expected to begin until March, so a later premiere date could potentially be conceivable.
The Challenge Season 38 Cast
When it comes to reality competition shows, there’s one contestant who’s almost certain to return for Season 38. “The Challenge” longtime host TJ Lavin is, of course, that person. His calm and assured presence has anchored the show throughout even its most ludicrous times.
“The Challenge” For viewers and candidates alike, GQ points out, Lavin’s expertise in extreme sports and his no-nonsense approach to hosting make him a realistic presence on the airwaves.
He said that “people can see straight through a guy who’s not using his actual voice,” referring to his method of hosting the show. “Everybody knows who I am. I made no alterations to the slang. Nothing in the script will be done if there is something in it that is not acceptable to me.”
However, until the list of competitors is out, it’s impossible to tell who the individuals around Lavin — the true competitors — are. Every season of “The Challenge” has a different group of contestants due to the nature of the show.
While you can expect to see some recognizable names from previous reality series once again, you’ll still have to wait for the precise cast to be released. It’s worth mentioning, though, that the show recently gave a big indication regarding one of the contestants.
As of January 31, the official “The Challenge” Twitter and Facebook pages had changed their cover photo to a poster showcasing multiple-season finalist Nany González, a seasoned contestant and past finalist.
While he stated that he needs a break, reigning champion CT Tamburello teased an impending rematch with fellow contender Johnny Bananas in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
The Theme for Season 38 of The Challenge
There is a distinct theme for each season of The Challenge, and this season marks a departure for the show’s creators. Episodes 38 and 39, titled “Ride or Die,” are similar to Battle of the Bloodlines in that they will include the loved ones of returning Challengers.
In addition to Chauncey Palmer (Amber B’s boyfriend), Jakk Maddox (Ex on the Peak and Laurel’s friend), Sam Bird (Love Island UK and Kailah’s husband), James Simon (Aneesa’s friend), Kenny Clark (Kaycee’s brother), and Tamara Alfaro, all of the new competitors have connections to the veteran players.
