The Challenge: USA cast of all former CBS reality stars, including several memorable Survivor and Big Brother winners, has been announced.
CBS has announced the 28 "reality titans" who will compete on The Challenge: USA, a reality spinoff of MTV's long-running The Challenge reality competition series, when it premieres with a special 90-minute episode on Wednesday, July 6 at 9:30PM ET/PT.
The 28-person cast was plucked from previous seasons of CBS' Survivor, Big Brother, The Amazing Race and Love Island. (Love Island, however, is moving to NBCUniversal's Peacock streaming service this year).
CBS has called The Challenge: USA, which will be hosted by T.J. Lavin, "unpredictable" and "demanding," as the summer show will require the reality all-stars to challenge -- and attempt to eliminate-- each other in "grueling" mental and physical competitions.
