The Challenge is back with a brand new season in 2019, and we’re finally moving on from the Dirty XXX, Vendettas and Final Reckoning trilogy! Season 33 will be called The Challenge: War of the Worlds, and it will feature vets we all know and love, as well as a whole new class of rookies that are hoping to make their mark on the game. This season will be similar to the old Fresh Meat format, where newbies come in to play for the first time, but this time, they are all familiar faces from other reality television shows!

Going into season 33, there’s already a lot of anticipation….especially after what went down between some cast members after filming ended. Cara Maria Sorbello and Paulie Calafiore are both on War of the Worlds, and they were happily in loved while they filmed the show in the fall of 2018. However, once they returned home, their relationship imploded when his ex, Danielle Maltby, came forward to reveal she’d been secretly seeing him the entire time he was with Cara. What will it be like watching Paulie and Cara’s love story play out when we know what happens in the end?!
