MTV’s long reigning hit competition series, The Challenge, is returning for an over-the-top 10-week special event The Challenge: Champs vs. Stars. The series will be hosted by WWE Superstar and former challenge star, Mike “The Miz” Mizanin.

Champs vs. Stars will feature ten celebrities and all-star athletes along with ten highly skilled, fan-favorite champions from past Challenge seasons,” according to a press release from MTV. “For the first time ever, teams will be mixed with both celebrities and “Champs” where they will face off in weekly eliminations, until one team will prove they are the ultimate “Challenge MVP.”

Here’s the weekly breakdown: “Each week, the two teams will compete in a challenge that will test their physical and mental strength. The winning team from each challenge will nominate their most valuable player (MVP) who will receive money for their charity, be safe from elimination, and choose their team’s least valuable player (LVP) to go into elimination. The losing team will also nominate their own LVP to go into elimination, and the two LVPs will compete to keep their spot in the game and ultimately, their share of $150,000 to donate to their respective charities.”
