"THE CHALLENGE: INVASION" IS BACK WITH A TWO-HOUR PREMIERE TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 7 AT 9:00 PM ET/PT WITH UNEXPECTED DRAMA, SURPRISING HOOK-UPS AND UNFORESEEN RETURNS

New "Invasion" Twist Forces Hopeful Underdogs To Get Down And Dirty As Superstar Challenge Champions Invade The Game Without Warning

HOLLYWOOD, CA - January 11, 2017 - MTV today announced the return of its hit series "The Challenge" with "The Challenge: Invasion," a new twist on the cutthroat competition format in which eighteen series Underdogs seeking their first victory will be pitted against one another to crown a new champion... only to come under a surprise, season-long attack from eight of the most fearsome Challenge Champions in the show's history. Filmed entirely on location in Thailand, "The Challenge: Invasion" debuts Tuesday, February 7 with a two-hour premiere at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Before they get the news that they must face off against the Champions, The Underdogs first shock comes with the revelation that they must compete against one another to earn their way out of the desolate, barebones accommodations known as "The Shelter." Only after they battle their way out of The Shelter, will they be allowed to move into a posh estate called "The Oasis." As these Underdogs fight and claw their way through the game, the very best will rise to the top and only twelve worthy Underdogs will earn their spot in The Oasis, where they will live in the lap of luxury. Their relief is ultimately short-lived as past Challenge winners make their way to The Oasis to shake things up.

The most decorated champ in Challenge history and last season's winner, Johnny "Bananas," returns after executing one of the most cunning and controversial moves in Challenge history; reformed Boston bad boy CT makes a triumphant return after a three-year absence with a new outlook on life; rebel Cara Maria is back and more fired up than ever after taking a well-deserved break following her "Battle of the Bloodlines" win and despite this being his fifth time on The Challenge, Shane has yet to earn his stripes as a Champion. Now he's back and ready to fight for the ultimate prize as an Underdog.

With $350,000 on the line, only the very best players will survive a brutal and cutthroat game. Epic challenges and stunning eliminations will push players to their breaking points. Friendships will be tested and tense new rivalries will form. Off the playing field, love is in the air with shocking romances and scandalous hook-ups. Not everyone will make it to the end, but for those who do, they will fight to win in the very first three-day final challenge to see who is truly worthy of being called a Champion.
