Angela Babicz - Twitter: @angelababicz, Instagram: @angelababicz
Ex on the Beach's Angela is an unusual mix of tough and sensitive. But in a game that's known for preying on people's weaknesses, she'll definitely need to kill her sensitive side and be tough as nails.

Britni Thornton - Twitter: @BritniNicol, Instagram: @mtv_britinicol

Multiple The Challenge wins, fearsome elimination performances, legendary fights and a distinctive mumble are what make Boston's own CT one of the most legendary characters to ever grace The Challenge.
Da'Vonne Rogers - Twitter: @DayDaVonne_ , Instagram: @davonnedianne_

Derrick Henry - Twitter: @imdroc15, Instagram: @imdroc15

Johnny 'Bananas' Devenanzio - Twitter: @MTVBananas, Instagram: @realjohnnybananas
With the most Challenge wins in history, Bananas hopes to dodge the usual arrows that get fired at the king from all sides. Bananas hasn't won a season since stealing all the money from his Rivals III partner Sarah - and some might say he's been cursed.

Kailah Casillas - Twitter: @Kailah_casillas, Instagram: @kailah_casillas
Kailah's polarizing personality and fearless game moves often rub people the wrong way. Despite that, she managed to make the Final on Vendettas but was devastated with her fourth place showing.
Kayleigh Morris - Twitter: @Kmorrisx, Instagram: @kayleighmariemorrisx
Last season on Vendettas, Kayleigh got swept up in a dangerous love triangle with Bananas and Nelson, which led to a group of girls throwing her suitcase off a balcony and Kayleigh quitting the game.

This hard-partying ladies' man started his The Challenge career on Vendettas and made it all the way to the Final, where he placed third.

Melissa Reeves - Twitter: @DJMelReeves, Instagram: @sjmelreeves

Natalie Negrotti - Twitter: @NataliaNegrotti, Instagram: @natalienegrotti
Natalie is a woman who stole Bananas' heart on Vendettas, but she made a lot of enemies along the way and constantly battles a reputation for fakeness.

Paulie Calafiore - Twitter: @PaulCalafiore_, Instagram: @PaulCalafiore_

After an impressive rookie season where she took home third place, Tori is back - this time to take home the crown.
Veronica Portillo - Twitter: @V_cakes, Instagram: V_cakes
Veronica was a standout in the early days of The Challenge, earning multiple titles. However, some people wonder if her fire still burns brightly enough to win, or if she's just coasting.
Zach Nichols - Twitter: @ZNichols15, Instagram: @zachnichols15
