MTV’s THE CHALLENGE: RIDE OR DIES Set To Premiere October 12th!

MTV today announced that the highly anticipated new season of The Challenge: Ride or Dies will premiere on Wednesday, October 12th at 8PM ET/PT. This season, players and viewers will see if the seemingly unbreakable bonds between friends, family and partners survive the competition, chaos and conniving of The Challenge.

Check out the trailer and a breakdown of the teams for the new season below!

For the first time ever, the critically-acclaimed competition franchise will pair cast members with their “Ride or Die,” featuring a cast of best friends, exes, and couples as they navigate the weekly mental and physical warfare together for their share of one million dollars. These relationships will be put to the ultimate test as their teamwork, loyalty, and trust will be challenged every step of the way. In this game, it all comes down to who you trust and who has your back, because this season of The Challengewill either break bonds or tie two competitors together for life.
