Whoa, The Challenge: Final Reckoning Trailer Warns Season 32 Is the End of the Show As You Know It
It’s the end of an era.
The Challenge: Final Reckoning‘s first trailer is here and let’s just say we have A LOT of questions, comments and concerns after watching it. E! News is exclusively debuting the first look at season 32 of the MTV reality hit competition series, which warns that Final Reckoning is “the end of The Challenge as you know it.” Gasp, what does that even mean?!
Now pulling from MTV’s latest dating series Ex on the Beach, Big Brother and Vanderpump Rules, as well as bringing back some of last season’s breakout Brits, Final Reckoning is forcing the competitors to work with their biggest enemy in order to win the $1 million prize. Think Rivals but on steroids basically.
“Think of your biggest vendetta,” host TJ Lavin tells the group in the video above, “That is your one and only teammate for the entire season.” So expect to see frenemies, exes and more paired up, which of course leads to a lot of tears, fighting and threats of quitting the show, as teased in the preview.
Final Reckoning, set in South Africa, will be the final installment of the trilogy that kicked off with Dirty 30 and continued with Vendettas.
“They thought they were free, but the past never stays buried,” the trailer reads. “It’s all led to this.”

“Danielle was completely blindsided by this,” her rep Lori Krebs told E! News. “She is hurting tremendously and would appreciate privacy at this time.”
Doesn’t the title Final Reckoning seem even more appropriate now?
