Read on for details about when and where the ultimate global tournament was filmed.
When was 'The Challenge: World Championship' filmed?
Filming of the newest The Challenge spinoff occurred not long before it premiered on Paramount Plus — in late fall 2022, specifically. The Challenge: World Championship took place between October and November 2022.
T.J. Lavin hosts The Challenge: World Championship alongside international Challenge hosts Brihony Dawson (Australia), Mark Wright (the U.K.), and Marley Biyendolo (Argentina).
The 12-part reality competition series includes global MVPs and Challenge legends vying for the "Challenge World Champion" title and $500,000.
This season’s Challenge legends include big names like Amber Borzotra, Darrell Taylor, Jodi Weatherton, Johnny "Bananas" DeVenanzio, Jonna Mannion, and Jordan Wiseley.
Where was 'The Challenge: World Championship' filmed?
Paramount Plus's epic global tournament was filmed in Cape Town, South Africa, and features contestants from around the globe.
Given the warm climate of Cape Town in October and November, filming The Challenge: World Championship in South Africa’s port city was ideal considering the outdoor nature of the series.
With water challenges, dune runs, and everything in between, temperate weather was essential for the global reality competition.
From Argentina and Australia to the U.K. and the U.S., the best of the best competitors from The Challenge franchise battle it out in a series of grueling challenges to secure the title of "Challenge World Champion." Naturally, the setting for the season had to reflect how big of a deal this is. And, typically, the competitors take part in challenges whether there's rain or shine.
The Challenge: World Championship may not be the first time producers got some high caliber players back together in the game. But it's still a big deal for players and fans alike.
