"THE CHALLENGE: USA" ANNOUNCES THE 28 CBS REALITY TITANS WHO WILL COMPETE IN THE MOST UNPREDICTABLE AND DEMANDING GAME OF THEIR LIVES THIS SUMMER ON CBS

The Inaugural Broadcast of MTV Presents "The Challenge: USA," an All-New Edition of MTV's Hit Reality Global Franchise, Launches on CBS Wednesday, July 6 with a Special 90-Minute Premiere, 9:30-11:00 PM

THE CHALLENGE: USA announced today the 28 fan favorites from SURVIVOR, BIG BROTHER, THE AMAZING RACE and LOVE ISLAND who will compete in the most unpredictable and demanding game of their lives this summer, on THE CHALLENGE: USA, premiering Wednesday, July 6 (9:30-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, and available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+*. Following the Network's 90-minute premiere, the inaugural broadcast of MTV's hit reality global franchise will air Wednesdays (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT). T.J. Lavin is the host.

The all-star group of players who will take on the new challenge includes SURVIVOR winners Tyson Apostol, Ben Driebergen and Sarah Lacina, BIG BROTHER winner Xavier Prather, THE AMAZING RACE winner James Wallington and LOVE ISLAND winner Justine Ndiba. Players have proven they can "outwit, outlast and outplay" their competition and "expect the unexpected," but now, for the first time in THE CHALLENGE history, they will compete in the most grueling mental and physical competitions they have ever faced.

Upon arrival, the CBS reality titans are given $1,000 to start their individual challenge accounts, and they quickly discover they must battle to keep and increase their handsome reward. In each episode, an algorithm pairs contestants who will face off to earn money for their accounts by winning challenges or eliminating their opponents. This will not be an easy task, as they will be paired with a randomly selected competitor every episode, making alliances and strategies more difficult than ever. Players must adapt to survive the game and protect their challenge accounts. With the $500,000 grand prize and title of Challenge Champion on the line, players will be in a constant state of paranoia, unable to trust anyone but themselves.

Plus, in addition to the prize money, the cast of THE CHALLENGE: USA will be competing for a spot on THE CHALLENGE: GLOBAL CHAMPIONSHIP (working title) that will stream exclusively on Paramount+, further highlighting Paramount's strategy of leveraging its popular franchises across the company's global platforms.
