Ride or Dies is the 38th season of The Challenge. The season features various reality stars competing with and against their closest friends, relationships, and allies for a share of $1 million. The season was filmed in Argentina from May to July 2022.

A launch special titled, The Challenge Ride or Dies: Ready to Ride, aired on Monday, October 10.

Description[]

The strength of family, friendship and love is put to the test in a competition of twists and turns (and explosions), and the winners will walk away with their shares of $1 million.

Format[]

Teams will compete in multiple challenges followed by an elimination round known as "The Zone." The winning team will be safe from elimination and nominate four teams to interrogate for possible elimination. In the Zone, the winners will choose one team to compete. The three remaining teams will participate in "The Draw." The Draw will have teams draw daggers out of a rock. The team to pull the "safe" dagger will be safe from the Zone and choose another team to save as well. The team not chosen will compete against the winner's nominee. The team that wins the elimination will stay in the game, while the loser goes home.

After eight challenges, pairs will split, and the game will turn into a team competition. Eliminations will be split by gender. The winning team will be safe from elimination and vote one player from the losing team into the Zone. The rest of the eligible team members will participate in the Draw. The winner of the elimination returns to the game, while the losers are eliminated. However, if their partner remained in the game, the eliminated players would have the chance to re-enter the game. Pairs then reunited, and the game returned to its original format.

The final four teams will compete in a 100-hour Final Challenge. The winning team will split $1 million.

Twists[]

  • The Draw: After the winner selects the first team in the Zone, the remaining nominees will participate in a Draw of daggers out of a rock. The team that pulls the "safe" dagger will be safe from elimination and choose another team to keep safe.
  • Heavy Hitters: Three teams of legendary Challenge Veterans (Aneesa & Jordan, Bananas & Nany, and Darrell & Veronica) will enter the game at different points in the competition.
  • Teams: Following the "Haul or Nothing" challenge, the Ride or Dies were split into two opposing teams. The teams were chosen by the "Haul or Nothing" winners Faysal & Moriah. Team 1 was formed by Faysal and Team 2 was formed by Moriah.
    • Re-entry elimination: The eliminated players during the team phase will remain in exile while their Ride or Die still competes. If their Ride or Die survives, they will have the chance to re-enter the game.

Notes[]

  1. The cast went into quarantine following a COVID-19 exposure prior to the "Bolas for Blood" challenge. Aneesa was originally part of the initial cast with a partner from home. Them and Kaycee & Kenny did not compete in the "Bolas for Blood" challenge after remaining in quarantine. Horacio & Olivia and Emmy & Nam were brought in as replacements. Kaycee & Kenny eventually returned to the game, and Aneesa entered the game as a Heavy Hitter with Jordan. In the episode, TJ explained that Kaycee & Kenny were taken out of the game, and the two replacement teams were brought in for them.
  2. Emmy quit prior to the "Balancing Act" challenge, and Nam was disqualified for being her partner. Kaycee & Kenny returned at the "Balancing Act" challenge after being cleared to compete after quarantine and replacing Emmy & Nam.
  3. No elimination was held following the "Haul or Nothing" challenge. Instead, winners Faysal & Moriah chose the new teams in a midseason twist.
  4. Teams were disbanded, and pairs reunited following the "Balls In" elimination. The eliminated players with their Ride or Dies still in the game (Kenny, Moriah, and Jordan) returned to the Zone. The teams competed in two elimination rounds to stay in the game. The losers of the second game were sent home.
  5. Olivia was medically disqualified from the Final Challenge after she had severely injured her face using a slingshot. Horacio was also disqualified for being her partner.
