The Challenge Season 40 features a stacked cast of competitors, which means viewers are going to see former finalists, champions, and favorites go early and often.

Spoilers continue to arrive online, including details about the 40-person cast, and elimination results for 12 competitors. However, the format for elimination voting was unknown.

In Season 39, competitors went through three phases: Control, Chaos, and Conquest. Each of these had different team, voting, and elimination formats.

It eventually led to the final, also featuring three similar phases, which Emanuel Neagu won.

Now, the early format for Season 40 has been revealed online, giving an idea of how the game will work, at first.

Season 40’s opening challenge featured each of the four eras groups competing individually, broken up into five pairs. The group’s pair who finished in last place for the challenge automatically went into elimination. The group’s pair who finished first in the challenge, voted in their elimination opponents.

Those who went into elimination chose from Kill Cards to determine which classic elimination they would have. These included Hall Brawl, Pole Wrestle, and Balls In.
