Channel Ten has released a brand new teaser trailer for the highly-anticipated reality show The Challenge Australia and revealed when it will finally premiere on TV.

22 of the country’s most famous reality TV stars will compete for a $200,000 prize, with both a male and female winner being chosen at the end who will go on to represent Australia in the first ever The Challenge: Global Championship.

A new promo for the show teases plenty of fiery confrontations between the contestants, as well as giving fans a glimpse at the gruelling physical challenges and wild celebrations.

“When you get the biggest personalities from the biggest shows on TV, get ready for big drama,” a voiceover says.


Cyrell Paule, who was known as ‘Cyclone Cyrell’ on her season of Married At First Sight in 2019, is shown yelling at Love Island winner Grant Crapp during what appears to be a Bachelor-style cocktail party.

“That was disrespectful!” she shouts as she holds a glass of red wine.

“Cyrell, it’s a f**king game,” he says in a confessional.

‘People are just losing their damn minds’

The trailer also features Bachelor star Jessica Brody telling MasterChef’s Conor Curran about someone who was “lying straight to [her] face”, and Big Brother winner Marley Biyendolo remarking that “people are just losing their damn minds”.

Meanwhile, Survivor all-star Brooke Jowett is shown covered in mud as she celebrates after a challenge, and Love Island’s Audrey Kanongara dances atop a bar in a white bikini.

One of the most explosive moments included in the trailer is when Bachelor alums Megan Marx and Konrad Bien-Stephen hook up in the hot tub as I’m A Celebrity’s David Subritzky tells producers about someone who’s “been with half the girls in the villa”.

“What have I got myself in for?” Australia’s Got Talent winner Jack Vidgen later says to the camera.

Who’s in the cast?

Representing The Bachelor on The Challenge is Brooke Blurton, Brittany Hockley, Ciarran Stott, Konrad Bien-Stephen, Jessica Brody, Megan Marx and Kiki Morris.

There are plenty of pre-established connections among the group, with Brooke and Brittany and Megan and Kiki appearing on the same seasons of The Bachelor in 2018 and 2016, respectively.

Ciarran famously dated both Kiki and Jessica on season three of Bachelor In Paradise, while Konrad came fourth on Brooke’s season of The Bachelorette.

Meanwhile, former I’m A Celebrity contestants David Subritzky and Emily Seebohm will reunite after competing in the jungle together earlier this year, as well as Survivor all-stars Brooke Jowett and Johnny Eastoe.

Rounding out the cast is MAFS stars Cyrell Paule and Ryan Gallagher, Australia’s Got Talent winner Jack Vidgen, MasterChef’s Conor Curran, Big Brother winner Marley Biyendolo, Love Island’s Grant Crapp and Audrey Kanongara, Ninja Warrior star Troy Cullen, pro boxers Sugar Neekz Johnson and Billy Dib, and influencer Suzan Mutesi.
