The Challenge USA cast: Big Brother, Survivor, Amazing Race stars!

The Challenge USACBS announced today the full cast for The Challenge USAand there are a lot of familiar faces on board! We can’t say that we’re too shocked by that when you think about what the central premise of this was from the start: Bringing Big Brother, Survivor, and Amazing Race people together for an epic competition.

Before we get too far down the rabbit hole of discussing the cast, there are a couple of things we’re a little surprised about. Take, for starters, CBS casting so many Love Island people when there isn’t going to be another season on the network (it’s moving to Peacock). Also, why didn’t they put a person or two from Tough as Nails on here? It feels like some of them would be worthy competitors. It would’ve also been nice to get a couple of contestants from older Big Brother / Survivor seasons, but recency bias really won out here.

Now that we’ve spelled all of that out, go ahead and check out the list of everyone taking part below…
