Every season of MTV's The Challenge poses its own set of obstacles for players to overcome. And when you throw a handful of rookies into the mix, the stakes become even greater. When The Challenge: Double Agents premieres on Dec. 9 at 8 p.m. ET on MTV, viewers will get to meet a cast of both rookies and returning veterans. And they are all in this for their share of $1 million.
So, who is in The Challenge: Double Agents cast?
Aneesa was in both The Real World and multiple seasons of The Challenge. In fact, this marks her 14th season overall. And although she has never won first place in a season, this could be her time to shine.
Ashley has a certain reputation on The Challenge as a stone cold player. She already took home the first prize money once and with this being her eighth season, she might do it again.
Tula "Big T" Fazakerley
Big T was originally part of Shipwrecked: Battle of the Islands, but she has proved herself worthy of The Challenge over the two other seasons she competed on the show.
Some Teen Mom fans know Cory best for being on Teen Mom OG for a little while. But others know him for his seven other seasons on The Challenge. Clearly, he is one of MTV’s mainstays.
Chris "C.T." Tamburello
Is it a season of The Challenge without C.T. competing for the $1 million prize? At this point, he’s a few notches above most of the other vets in terms of airtime and experience.
Devin started off in a reality dating show like so many other Challenge competitors. Now, he’s back for his fifth season of the competition.
Remember Road Rules? That’s where Darrell got his MTV start. Now, he’s competing on The Challenge for the first time in years.
This is only Big Brother alum Fessy Shafaat’s second Challenge, but he has proven himself to be a formidable player in terms of physical competitions.
Jay first competed on The Challenge: Total Madness, where he was targeted almost from day one. Now that he’s no longer a rookie, he may be out to prove himself.
Josh doesn’t have a stellar Challenge track record, but he has competed in three other seasons. Maybe the former Big Brother winner can come out on top this time around.
Kam has never won a season of The Challenge, but she has competed in four other seasons before The Challenge: Double Agents.
Kaycee proved herself as a top tier competitor on both Big Brother and one season of The Challenge. Most fans won't be surprised to see her return for Double Agents.
Kyle is a fierce competitor, but he’s also a troublemaker. Put those together and you’ve got the perfect player for a season of backstabbing, spying, and lying.
In August 2020, Leroy and Kam celebrated a year together. Hopefully competing on The Challenge at the same time will bring them even closer together rather than drive them apart.
Nany has always been a solid player on The Challenge and this marks her 10th season competing.
Sometimes being a cocky player on The Challenge can be your undoing. Just ask Nelson, whose own over-abundance of confidence has sometimes messed with his game.
Nicole has made the rounds with a few different MTV reality shows and with this being her third Challenge so far, she is sure to bring the drama.
The last time Theresa competed on The Challenge was in 2014. And while this is her seventh time overall, she may be a little rusty.
Tori is another Challenge vet who not many fans will be surprised to see back for more.
Literally no one will be shocked to see Wes back for more blood, sweat, and chances at part of the $1 million Challenge prize.
Amber competed in Season 14 of Big Brother, where she came in 12th place.
Gabby is from both Love Island and Celebrity Big Brother UK. This means she could either come in with a chip on her shoulder or the experience to go far on The Challenge.
Joseph was a singer on America’s Got Talent. How that correlates with his role on The Challenge is vastly unclear.
Lio was once a WWE wrestler and if that doesn't qualify him to get far as a competition beast, nothing does.
Fans of Celebrity Big Brother might remember seeing Lolo Jones compete in Season 2. But she’s also an Olympic athlete, so there’s that.
Mechie is a musician and was on Ex on the Beach. Neither of those quite prepare one for The Challenge, however.
Nam is a fitness model who was on Ultimate Beastmaster. It's safe to say he could go far on The Challenge, even as a rookie.
Survivor is one of those shows that can legitimately prepare players for The Challenge and since Natalie was on both Survivor and The Amazing Race, she certainly stands a chance.
Olivia "Liv" Jawando
Liv was on Shipwrecked, a reality dating show. Sadly, it’s not exactly The Challenge, so she is going to have a lot to prove.
The Challenge: Double Agents was filmed in Iceland and features competitions that will force players to go against both friends and foes. And it may not be clear right away which competitors truly have each other’s backs.
