IT'S EVERY MAN AND WOMAN FOR THEMSELVES WHEN MTV'S "THE CHALLENGE: FREE AGENTS" PREMIERES ON THURSDAY, APRIL 10 AT 10:00 PM ET/PT

28 Players Travel to Uruguay For a Chance to Win Over $350,000 in Prize Money

All New Trailer Reveals a Brand New Game, Unexpected Twists, New Relationships and Renewed Rivalries During the 25th Season of the Celebrated Series.

Santa Monica, CA - (March 12, 2014) MTV travels to Punta del Este, Uruguay, for "The Challenge: Free Agents" premiering on Thursday, April 10 at 10:00 PM ET/PT. Twenty-eight money-hungry players arrive in South America ready to take the competition by storm only to find that they'll be facing the most unpredictable Challenge game yet: FREE AGENTS.

The 25th season of The Challenge, hosted by TJ Lavin, is an individual game. There are no permanent teams, no demanding partners, no one to slow you down. The FREE AGENTS answer to no one but themselves. Alliances are useless and tried and true strategies no longer work because players will have no idea if they will be competing in teams, pairs, or as individuals until moments before each challenge begins. They're forced to adjust to whatever is thrown their way because with $350,000 at stake, winning challenges has never been so important.

And losing has never been so nerve-wracking. After each challenge the winners select one guy and one girl to fight for their spot in the game while the losers must take part in the biggest elimination twist in challenge history - the DRAW, where one guy and one girl are selected by pure chance to face the two players nominated by the day's winners. With competitors' fates being determined by a flip of a card, no amount of strategy can protect them.

A sneak peek of the new season will premiere tonight at 10:00 - 11:00 P.M. ET/PT during MTV's "The Real World: Explosion"
