Format

Each team will compete in numerous challenges, followed by elimination rounds known as "The Lair." The winners of the Challenge will form the Agency and will be immune from the Lair. The rest of the house will be given 20 minutes to discuss and vote simultaneously, and as individuals, one team into the Lair. At the Lair, the Agency will vote in one male and one female, regardless of whether or not they are a pair, to compete against the nominated team. The Agency's selections will compete as a pair. The winning pair will remain in the game, and the losers will be eliminated from the game.

Twists

  • Team Selection: Before competing in the Opening Mission, the International players were given files on their potential American partners. Then, they will race to free the player they wanted to be partners with at the "Compromised" challenge.
  • Infiltration: Returning from Double Agents, the winners of the elimination round can either remain as a team, return to their original partners, or select any available player from any team to be their partner. Teams will then form based on the players remaining.

Notes

  • During the first few days of filming, a cast or crew member tested positive for COVID-19, causing the cast to enter a 10 day quarantine period. The entire cast returned to the game with negative tests, excluding Nam. TJ announced at the Lair that Nam unexpectedly withdrew from the game due to unknown reasons. He was replaced by Ed.
  • Due to unknown reasons, Lauren was disqualified from the competition prior to the "Heli Heist" challenge. Amber came in as her replacement.
  • Tommy was medically disqualified from the competition due to suffering a concussion during the "Sea Cave Recon" challenge. He did not vote at nominations, and only the women were required to compete in the Lair as a result.
  • Aneesa was medically disqualified from the competition after a shoulder injury during the "Minefield" challenge. Because her and Logan were voted in, the elimination only required the men to compete.
