Format

Each team will compete in numerous challenges followed by elimination rounds known as "The Killing Floor". The top three finishers of each challenge will form "The Tribunal", where they will nominate three teams to possibly compete in the Killing Floor. They will discuss with each nominee and then vote individually in the Killing Floor. The team that is voted in then must call out any team of their liking that is not safe. The winners of the elimination will stay in the game and hold the Relic, which grants them safety from the next elimination. The losers are eliminated from the game.

After eight eliminations, the game will become completely individual. The overall top three competitors will form the Tribunal and nominate three players of the same gender for the Killing Floor.

Prize money splits as follows:

  • Winner: $750,000
  • Runner-up: $200,000
  • Third Place: $50,000

Twists

  • Impending Dune and Team Draft: The first challenge will eliminate two Prospects from the game. The order in which they finish will be the order of how pairs are selected. The Prospects will then choose their Veteran partner.
  • Tribunal: The top three finishers of each challenge will hold the power and vote in one team to go into the Killing Floor.
  • The Relic: The winners of the Killing Floor will hold the Relic in which they will be immune from the next elimination. The twist will end after the first eight eliminations.
  • Every Man for Themselves: After eight challenges competing in pairs, the teams will disperse and the game will become completely individual. 
    • One Winner: Similar to Vendettasonly one player no matter the gender will win this season.

Notes

  • Alan was removed from the competition in Episode 1 due to breaking his arm despite making it to the house. He was replaced by Josh who was eliminated at the "Impending Dune" challenge.
  • The Episode 4 Killing Floor was deemed a double elimination. In the "Ring Tossed" elimination, the players played as individuals and the winners of each gender will form a team.
  • The first place male and female of the "Crash Landing" challenge won immunity from the next challenge and qualified for the Final Challenge.
  • In the first leg of the "Death Path" Final Challenge, Georgia was medically removed after collapsing, and Mattie withdrew from the competition after feeling unable to continue.
