This season of The Challenge features a brand new format, consisting of three teams — Red vs. Blue vs. Grey. The three teams will participate in numerous challenges called missions, which are followed by an elimination challenge, known as the "Gulag." The team who wins a challenge will win immunity from the Gulag.

The two losing teams will then be forced to choose two players from their own teams for possible elimination. Each player will cast secret votes to decide which two will battle in the Gulag. The winning players will rejoin their respective teams and stay in the game while the losing players will be eliminated from the game.

In the event a vote is tied, a run-off vote is conducted. If the run-off does not resolve the tie, the player going into the Gulag from the opposing team selects any member of the other team to send to the Gulag.


Challenge Games

  • Jungle Shooter: In this game you will have to try and shoot moving targets and get points.
  • Figure It Out: In this mission you will have to figure out a sequence of puzzles first to be the winning team. The team that completes the puzzles first will win this mission, the other two teams will vote 2 of their members into the Gulag.
First you will have to find your logic puzzle hidden somewhere on this blog. It is hidden on a page that is titled as 6 different digits. So for example you could find it on or The digits can be any number 0-9, there are no repeating digits. Don’t worry you will get some clues.
Once you find the page you will have instructions to solve a logic puzzle. A logic puzzle is a puzzle deriving from the mathematics field of deduction. You will be shown a grid, and be given clues that will help you figure out what pieces of information belong in what box. Once you have edited the image provided and inserted the correct pieces of information submit it to the blog. The first team to submit the correctly solved logic puzzle to the blog will win this mission!
