Description

The war is over, but the madness is only just beginning. Returning to the solo format in which every man and woman is competing solely for themselves, The Challenge: Total Madness will pit 21 veterans and seven rookies against one another in the most insane challenges ever devised in the show's 22-year history. Who will take home the $1 million prize, and who will succumb to madness?

Format

Each challenge will be played in either teams, pairs, or individuals, followed by elimination rounds known as "Purgatory". The winners of the challenge will form a Tribunal, who will be safe from elimination. The rest of the house will vote in one player of the designated gender to go into Purgatory. The Tribunal will then nominate three players as possible opponents. In Purgatory, the Tribunal will vote in one of the three nominees, or one member of the Tribunal can nominate themselves into elimination. The winner stays in the game, while the loser goes home.

Twists

  • Tribunal: 3-5 players will have power and safety. They will determine the elimination matchup. They can also volunteer themselves into elimination to possibly earn a Red Skull.
  • Brands: Each competitor will have brands on their helmets.
    • Dagger: The player is a Champion.
    • Skulls: Elimination wins.
    • Red Skull: The player won an elimination. In order to compete in the Final Challenge, the player must have a Red Skull.

Notes

  • Tribunal players in italics indicate that the player threw themselves into Purgatory
  • Jay was medically disqualified from the "Fire Ball" elimination after taking a hard hit and showing signs of a concussion.
  • Due to the odd number of males during the "Fast and Furious" challenge, Jordan was randomly selected to go twice with Nany and Bayleigh.
  • The "Pole Wrestle" and "Bombs Out" eliminations were declared double eliminations. As a result, four players were nominated instead of the usual three.
  • Big T was medically disqualified in Episode 9 prior to the "Tunnel Rats" challenge after lacerating her toe the previous episode.
