Who Are the Contestants on MTV’s ‘The Challenge’ Season 33?

Cara Maria

MTV Cara Maria Sorbello is one of the 34 cast members looking to win "The Challenge: War of the Worlds."

The Final Reckoning trilogy came to a close last season when Ashley Mitchell and Hunter Barfield ran away with the win before Mitchell ran away with the million, stealing Barfield’s half and joining Bananas as one of the shadiest cast members in Challenge history. Now, new challengers from all over the world join Cara Maria, Bananas, Mitchell, Barfield, and more to try to knock the veterans out and secure themselves a large chunk of reality TV cash money.

Here’s the full cast listing for The Challenge: War of the Worlds.

What can viewers expect? DRAMA. But aside from the standard “Vets vs Rookies” beef that’s sure to run rampant in the house, tons of relationship tension is sure to spark flames. While the on-again-off-again Zach and Jenna were last reported as together, the new season’s trailer showed their relationship on the rocks. (“I don’t want to break up with you.” “Jenna, we’re done.” Ruh-roh, Shaggy.)

Ashley and Hunter are sure to go at it again. Hunter is still adamant on the fact that Ashley is the worst, and well, if someone stole a $500k check from me, I’d probably be feeling some kind of way, too. (Cut to Ashley’s scene in the trailer where she’s screaming, “I’m rich, bitch!” Classic, Ashley.)

And then there’s Paulie and Cara. While filming Final Reckoning, Paulie was dating Danielle Maltby from The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise. While on location, he cheated on her with fellow cast member Cara Maria Sorbello, which ultimately ended things with between him and Danielle. There’s also bound to be loads of drama between Paulie and Cara’s last hook-up, Kyle, who Paulie calls out into an elimination in the show’s trailer. (As for Paulie and Cara’s post-War of the Worlds break-up saga, you’ll have to stick to Twitter for all those messy deets.)
