The official cast of The Challenge Australia 2022 has been announced, and it’s chock-full of stars from every corner of the reality TV universe.

The all-new series — coming to Channel 10 in collaboration with Paramount+ — will see several personalities compete against each other in extreme activities to keep themselves out of elimination.

Previously, So Dramatic! exclusively revealed several familiar stars joining the series, including The Bachelor‘s Megan Marx and serial singing competitor Jack Vidgen.

Now, a litany of new names have been unveiled as part of the line-up, and it is the biggest mish-mash of shows ever!

Announced on the official The Challenge Australia Instagram page, the cast was given their very own headshot.

Alongside the pics, it teased that “Australia’s most talked about celebs [will] take on a new challenge”.

“With old rivalries and new alliances, who has what it takes to go down in reality TV history as Australia’s first Challenge Champion?

#TheChallengeAU Coming Soon to 10 and 10Play.”

On the show’s official 10Play page, the series promises “cutthroat alliances and steamy hook-ups” — hello, Konrad and Megan!

Australia will get in on the action as part of The Challenge: War of the Worlds. This will see four countries — Australia, the US, the UK and Argentina — produce their nation-specific version in the first phase of the competition.

Then, the winners of each country’s local version (Part 1) will compete against each other in the final. A.K.A “Part 2”.

Paramount+ will be home to War of the Worlds, particularly Part 2.

However, each local version will also be broadcast on the main network associated with the streaming platform in each respective country.
