‘The Challenge: USA’ Season 2 features a new elimination twist, according to spoilers

A new twist is about to turn eliminations upside down, according to The Challenge: USA Season 2 spoilers. The format for the season is unlike anything fans have seen yet.

Host T.J. Lavin explains that the 24 players entering the house will divide into three teams — a blue team, a red team, and a green team. These teams go against each other in daily eliminations. The team who wins the daily challenge nominates one man and one woman for elimination, while the rest of the cast also individually (and anonymously) votes for one man and one woman.

The votes written by the losing teams go into a lottery/raffle. Lavin then picks a name from the lottery, and that person’s name — whether it’s a man or a woman — is the one to go into elimination. If Lavin pulls a man’s name, that man goes against the male player nominated by the winning team. If Lavin pulls a woman’s name, that woman goes against the female player nominated by the winning team.

“That’s how we can get multiple eliminations of the same gender in a row,” spoiler guru PinkRose posted to Vevmo.

The elimination winner can then choose to head back to their original team or switch places with someone from another team.

Here’s how the cast breaks down into 3 teams
