The Challenge - Season 30
To celebrate the 30th season of The Challenge, MTV is bringing back the dirtiest and most unpredictable players in The Challenge history for the biggest prize ever - $1 MILLION DOLLARS! This devious bunch will stop at nothing to win the game and compete against each other on The Challenge XXX: Dirty 30. Fifteen men and fifteen women will have to fight their way through some of the craziest, most daring challenges yet. And with this devious assortment of players, the backstabbing and masterminding will be just as intense off the field as on the field. Trust. No. One.
The Challenge - Season 30
Each player will participate in multiple challenges followed by an elimination round known as "The Presidio". Each challenge will be played in teams, pairs, or as individuals. The winners of the challenge will deliberate among themselves and nominate one male player and one female player for elimination. The losers of the challenge will remain eligible for elimination and participate in "The Double Cross". The player to pull the Double Cross will be responsible for nominating another one of the losing players for the Presidio. The players will then compete in the elimination round. The winners stay in the game while the losers are eliminated.
The cast will be stacked with 30 favorites from across the series, including several players making their returns after prolonged breaks from the game. Derrick Kosinski, originally from Road Rules: X-Treme (2004), last appeared on season 20 in 2010, and Veronica Portillo, originally from Road Rules: Semester at Sea (1999) is back after an eight-year hiatus (though she did appear in the current Challenge special pitting Champs against athletes like Lolo Jones and Gus Kenworthy).
What was one of your favorite elimination challenges in Dirty 30?I liked when they had to smash up through the walls and had chains on their ankles and they had to climb up and smash going up. But the Bananas versus Derrick one with the hamster wheel was awesome too.
Me! But for that format, I think they should bring stronger women like Emily (winner of a Rivals season), Laurel, Evelyn, Nicole (from Invasion), etc. That would be a lot more fair and fun to watch; the other Battle of the Sexes seasons were completely dominated by guys.
Jordan: An interesting season for Jordan. Whilst he at times, is likeable, and manages to be easy to root for, he also makes a few comments this season that are problematic and/or just unlikeable. From the ableist comment towards Jemmye, to other moments of arrogance and outright mean-ness, Jordan can often be a little hard to digest this time around. At the same time, his cockiness has started to present itself in a similar way to Wes, where it can often be a source of entertainment and enjoyment. Personality this season aside, Jordan plays a good game. He gets lucky and pulls the double cross THREE times, picks fights with the new kids, wins a few dailies, and puts on an incredible performance in the final given his injured knee.
Ammo: Ammo is the first non-binary contestant on the show, and I think they are fantastic for representation and further diversity as the show heads into a more modern era. Ammo is a very memorable character, for both their personality as well as their low-key success on the show. Despite eventually exiting the game due to feeling mentally unwell, Ammo leaves a memorable mark on the season, particularly with their win against Tony, and their ability to hold their own against Jordan.
The Purge: This counts as a daily right? Despite stealing six players, three of which are very sad to lose, The Purge is an epic opening to the season. The challenge takes place in an old-castle, and involves multiple stages, including rolling barrels, carrying large cannons, and racing with cannonballs. A very thematic and tense challenge.
Ups and Downs is a Challenge superfans dream, involving ranking all seasons of The Challenge in chronological order, using a winch to lift the placer into the air. It was so much fun to watch these contestants (some of whom have lived through almost ALL of these seasons) struggle to place them in order. Bananas and CT in particular were hilarious in their lack of knowledge. Their confessionals during this had me dying
Blackout was making me cringe. Players are in teams of three and start in completely blacked out rooms. They then have to scratch away a bunch of black paint to reveal a code to unlock the room (and for some reason, all that scratching just activated my cringe neurons). Fantastic and unique challenge though.
Rampage involves one of my favourite showdowns of the season between friends Hunter and Nelson. It involves being stuck back to back, and then wrestling to push your opponent down the correct side of a pyramid to earn a point. Nelson puts in an incredible performance against Hunter, a matchup I thought would be a blowout in the favour of Hunter. In particular, him throwing Hunter completely over the back of him down the ramp is living rent free.
The Reel World was a great final challenge, played by two challenge legends, and Camila and Britni. Derrick/Bananas is a fantastic showdown here. The challenge involves jumping over a huge reel, winding in a large weight, before looping back around and performing the same again. An endurance challenge which was great fun to watch.
The sixth contestant to win back-to-back flagship seasons of the reality show, following Darrell Taylor, Veronica Portillo, Landon Lueck, Evan Starkman, Tyler Duckworth, and Chris "CT" Tamburello, Devenanzio holds the record for most number of seasons participated.
He was also in news for dating Big Brother: Over the Top winner Morgan Willett. The couple started dating after completing filming for season 33 of The Challenge, however spliting in September 2021 after Willett claimed that the MTV star was unfaithful.
The Challenge (originally known as Road Rules: All Stars, followed by Real World/Road Rules Challenge) is a reality game show on MTV that is spun off from the network's two reality shows, The Real World and the now cancelled Road Rules. It features alumni from these two shows, in addition to first-time cast members called 'Fresh Meat' and alumni from Are You the One?, competing against one another for a cash prize. The Challenge is currently hosted by T. J. Lavin. The series premiered on June 1, 1998. The title of the show was originally Road Rules: All Stars before it was renamed Real World/Road Rules Challenge by the show's 2nd season, then later abridged to simply The Challenge by the show's 19th season. The series initially used no hosts but instead a former cast member who had been kicked off his or her season, providing assignments as "Mr." or "Ms. Big" (David "Puck" Rainey, David Edwards, and Gladys Sanabria served this role). Later on, however, the series began using hosts: Eric Nies and Mark Long co-hosted a season, and Jonny Moseley and Dave Mirra hosted various seasons before T. J. Lavin became the show's regular host by the 11th season. (source: en.wikipedia.org)
This final season of The Challenge will give us the answer whether Underdogs Ashley M., Cory, Nelson, or Nicole will take home the $350,000 grand prize, or if it will it be one of the Champs, CT or Camila.
However, The Real World star opted to keep the prize money in full instead of splitting it, and she went home with $1 million, making her the highest-earning cast member at the time. The California native has returned for seven more seasons, including three spinoffs but only finished in the finals once more.
The two-time champ had admitted this before as some fans came for her on Twitter last season when she called out Bergmann for not wanting to compete. One follower responded and noted Mitchell quit for losing her luggage, which is the reason the show gave for her departure.
Weary with sweat, the King reaches the pinnacle of the Ultimate Champion League, proudly displaying his champion belt. This emote replaces the King Emperor emote and is available to players who make it to League 10 this season.
Books that used to be free are now available for purchase in the Season Shop. Every season will come with one book, and an Epic Book can be bought for 15,000 Season Tokens. Other available items in the shop include Wild Cards, Banner Items, and Emotes.
Unlike previous seasons, where leagues have increasingly higher card level requirement, all the leagues will be capped at Level 11. Path of Legends usually uses card levels of the player collection, so being able to play at Level 11 instead of maxed level should be a welcoming change.
Mega Draft is a great game mode that experienced players can enjoy. It levels the playing field by using Level 11 cards and eliminates the possibility of sniping at the end of the season because of the lack of constructed decks. So many players might enjoy this, and I hope that you will.

Despite barely finishing outside of the top-10 in offensive rating last season under Stan Van Gundy, most of the moves this past offseason were made with the idea of forming an even more potent offensive attack. Not having Zion Williamson around certainly plays a huge factor in where they are now, but this roster has enough talent outside of the former No. 1 overall pick to be much better than they are now.
Even with all the turnovers and inconsistent shooting, the most frustrating aspect of this Pelicans squad through the first three games of the season has to be the lack of production from the reserves.
Being without Williamson and Josh Hart, who injured his quad only 10 minutes into the season opener, certainly takes away from what the bench could have been. However, this squad came out of training camp with a great sense of pride about how much depth it developed throughout the roster. 041b061a72
