MTV’s The Challenge Gets FanDuel Fantasy Game as We Desperately Clamor For Sports

As we desperately search for some type of competition during the coronavirus pandemic, MTV’s The Challenge: Total Madness is coming to save the day. The reality television series is set to premiere on Wednesday, April 1, and those craving some fantasy action can join in on the fun on FanDuel.

“The contest will have a $100 salary cap. Fans of the hit reality show will pick a team of their favorite reality show stars who will accrue points in a variety of different categories. Players will need to balance the salary cap to build the ultimate team – just like daily fantasy contests for football, baseball, basketball and other fantasy contests on FanDuel. Players will have to lock in their lineup for the season premiere by 8 p.m. ET on April 1,” FanDuel announced.

“The scoring categories include points for Winning an Elimination Challenge, Winning a Daily Challenge, Contestant Hooks Up with Someone, Verbal Altercation Outside of Challenges and more.”

Season 35 of The Challenge will premiere on Wednesday, April 1 at 8:00 p.m. ET with new cast members who previously competed on Big Brother, Survivor, and The Amazing Race. This season, cast members will not be able to float to the final. If you want to have a shot at taking home the $1 million grand prize, you will have to risk elimination by going into a one-on-one challenge with another cast member.

“The only way to make it into a final is to win an elimination,” host TJ Lavin said in the promo video for the season.
