Challenge 2000 is the 3rd season of the Real World/Road Rules Challenge. It premiered on January 17, 2000 and concluded on April 3, 2000.


Challenge 2000 is a six-on-six Challenge format. The teams traveled via tour bus starting in Las Vegas, Nevada then moving to the eastern U.S., ending in Miami, Florida after competing in different individual challenges. Each time a team won an individual challenge, they won $10,000. After each mission won, the winning team would invest those 10K in the product of their choice through E-Trade. At the end, the winning team also won any money won in the stock market. The last mission would be for the right to keep the money collected in the pot, an additional cash prize and a car.
