Format

Each team will compete in numerous challenges followed by elimination rounds known as "The Proving Ground", which will alternate between gender. The winning team will choose three players to form the Tribunal (no player can participate in two consecutive Tribunals). The losing team will deliberate in front of the Tribunal and vote in one player of the designated gender. The Tribunal will then discuss with the selected player on possible opponents from either team. In the Proving Ground, the Tribunal will vote in one player of the designated gender to compete against the selected player. The winner stays in the game, while the loser is eliminated. The winner will be granted the choice to switch teams.

Twists

  • The Reinforcements: Four Reinforcements (CT, Dee, Ninja, and Turbo) arrived as extra ammo to the teams. The winning team of the Opening Challenge will have first picks on one male and one female to join their team.
  • Tribunal: Returning from War of the Worlds, the Tribunal will be three players selected from the Winning Team. They are the only players who have safety and power. No player can participate in two consecutive Tribunals.
  • Turncoat: The winners of the elimination have the choice to switch teams.
  • Purge Challenge: A Purge took place during the "Puzzling Swim" challenge where the slowest pair was eliminated from the game.

Notes

  • Zahida withdrew from the competition in Episode 2 due to a family emergency. Faith also withdrew from the competition following an altercation with Bear, Kyle, and Theo.
  • Team UK originally finished the "Paddle Wheel Puzzle" challenge the fastest. However, after Theo ripped off a lock instead of unlocking it, Team USA was declared the winner.
  • Prior to the "Incoming" challenge, Turbo was disqualified from the competition after another altercation with Jordan, along with being violent towards production, despite getting a warning.
  • Since Team USA had three more players during the "Incoming" challenge, Ashley, Nany, and Paulie were randomly chosen to sit out.
  • In Episode 10, Tori decided to Turncoat after winning the "Blockbuster" elimination.
  • In Episode 11, Jordan decides to Turncoat after winning the "Under the Hammer" elimination.
