For the first time in Challenge history, the reality competition series is letting the players choose their partners.

Ride or Dies will put friends and family to the ultimate test: Can their bonds survive the competition, chaos, and conniving of The Challenge? The season pairs cast members with their “Ride or Die,” featuring best friends, exes, and couples navigating the mental and physical warfare for their share of $1 million.
