Currently, Season 35 of ‘The Challenge’ has been named ‘The Challenge: War of The Worlds III- Battle for Independence’. Notably, the filming has taken place in Prague, Czech Republic, and the Austrian Alps. Sources state that this is the first time since 2017’s ‘The Challenge: Dirty 30’, that contestants are competing individually.
They have been living in an underground shelter, during filming, with Port-O-Potties being placed outside as bathrooms. We also know that participants have to win an elimination before progressing to the final. This marks a first in the franchise’s history and urges each participant to actually compete for a spot in the final.
However, contestants have been eliminated before reaching the finals. Jennifer Lee, a rookie, is eliminated by Jenny West, and Asaf Goren, also a rookie, is eliminated by Jay Starret. Ashley Mitchell, on her sixth Challenge with two wins, is eliminated by Dee Nguyen, while Chris “CT” Tamburello, on the 17th Challenge with three wins, is eliminated by Jay Starret.
Tori Deal, on her fourth Challenge, is eliminated by Jenna Compono, and Jay Starret, a rookie, is eliminated by Rogan O’Connor. “Big T” is disqualified, unfortunately, after hurting her foot, while arguing with Mattie.
