The Challenge: All Stars Season 3: Details We Know So Far

If there is one thing that rings true about cult classic shows, it's that they can produce really good spin-offs. "The Challenge: All Stars" is one such example of that and came from "The Challenge," which has been around for a whopping 37 seasons and is queued up for another. It only makes sense that a show filled with the best of the best characters from that beloved show would also become a fan favorite. After two successful seasons, "The Challenge: All Stars" is getting ready for Season 3. With new details of the series spilling out, it's safe to say that this is one season you won't want to miss.


"The Challenge: All Stars" is, well, exactly what it sounds like. Past competitors from "The Challenge" all get together to make a competition that's years in the making — literally. There are people from tons of different seasons of the show, dating back to "Challenge 2000" from the year 2000 and even "Real World/Road Rules Challenge" from 1999. According to Showbiz Cheat Sheet, out of the 24 competitors that will appear on Season 3, 16 of them have also won a championship. That's some stiff competition.

If you're getting excited for the season to come out, we don't blame you. Here's everything you need to know about the new season, so you don't miss a thing. 

When will 'The Challenge: All-Stars' Season 3 premiere?

Get your calendar ready, because you're going to want to clear out some time to catch this show this spring. According to Showbiz Cheat Sheet, "The Challenge: All Stars" Season 3 will be out on May 11, and this time, you won't need to tune your television to a certain channel. The show will drop on Paramount+, so instead, you'll want to make sure you have access to the streaming platform.


If the pattern works the same way as it has in past seasons, the 10 episodes of "The Challenge: All Stars" will drip one episode per week for 10 weeks. That takes you from spring all the way into summer. The downside to this weekly drop is you won't be able to binge them all in one sitting, but that's what makes this show so nostalgic. You have to watch every week, just like when it aired back in the '90s. 

You can get the streaming service any time you'd like for $4.99 per month. That's pretty darn affordable compared to other streaming services that cost double that. You can also get a free week of Paramount+, so you could start watching your first week of "The Challenge: All Stars" for free if you time if correctly. 


Which all-stars are rumored to be on the third season?

While "The Challenge" continues to get new faces — or, as they call them, "rookies" — added to the show every season, you are likely to have seen everyone on "The Challenge: All Stars." That's because every single one of the competitors from the spin-off show has already appeared on the show before hence the title of "All Stars." Season 3 is no different. The only faces that you might not recognize are from the seasons that were before your time. 


There's a good mix of cast from over the years, too. According to Showbiz Cheat Sheet, more recent competitors like Jordan Wiseley and Wes Bergmann are rumored to be on "The Challenge: All Stars" for the third season as well as faces that will be a blast from the past, like Veronica Portillo and Brad Fiorenza. While there were rumors that Johnny Bananas would be joining the show, People reports no announcements have been made about that.

There is one familiar face you will be happy to know is confirmed to be returning. TJ Lavin will also be on the show as a host, just like he does with the MTV's "The Challenge." It's nice to see the show keeping things consistent, even on a new streaming platform. According to Entertainment Weekly, he calls this round of competitors "an unprecedented lineup of 24 of the most iconic, boldest and fiercest challengers."


Where does this season take place?

Following suit of past seasons, "The Challenge: All Stars" will also get a remote location abroad. The show features some absolutely stunning locations where the challengers compete. According to Entertainment Weekly, the competitors' "physical and emotional boundaries" will be tested in Panama. Not a bad place for the cast to shoot or viewers to watch. 


The tropical location is a big change from the past. "The Challenge" was filmed in Iceland during the pandemic, which left the competitors a bit more chilly than "The Challenge: All Stars" will be during this season. Either way, it will be fun to see all the different challenges that the cast gets to compete in. Something tells us there will be a whole lot of water challenges this round. 

Mark your calendars for May 11 and get your streaming service all lined up, my friend, because this is season will be one to watch.
