All-Stars

The Challenge : All-Stars (Season 1)

All Stars features a daily challenge, nomination process and an elimination round.
Daily Challenge: Players compete in the main challenge either individually or in teams. For team challenges, teams elect a male and female captain before the challenge begins. The winning player (for individual challenges), or winning team captain (for team challenges) of the designated gender is immune from elimination while the respective losing captain or player of the designated gender is automatically sent into the elimination round.
Nominations: Players besides the captains of the winning and losing teams (for team challenges), or both individual winners and the last-place player (for individual challenges), participate in nominations to select a second player of the designated gender to compete in the elimination round. They are given a chance to discuss the nominations before voting in an open vote. The player who receives the most votes will participate in the elimination round.
Eliminations (The Arena): The nominated player participates in an elimination round against the same-gender captain of the losing team, or the last place player from the daily challenge depending on the structure of the daily challenge. The winner remains in the game while the loser is eliminated.

Starting at the 5th episode, it was announced that the remaining eliminations for the season would be double eliminations in which two players are eliminated. The losing male and female players, or captains, from the daily challenge form a team. The nominated player must then call-out a partner of the opposite gender to form their opponents for the elimination; the gender of the nominated player alternates each episode. The winning team remains in the game while the losing team is eliminated

Twists
Lifesaver: Implemented for the first four episodes, the winning player or winning team captain of the non-designated gender for the elimination round is granted the Lifesaver. At the Arena, they must choose whether or not to use the Lifesaver to save the nominated player from competing in the elimination. In the event that the Lifesaver is used, the players eligible to vote (this time excluding the saved nominee) must publicly vote to select a replacement nominee for the Arena.

Memorable Moments

  • Arissa was voted to participate in the "Wall Ball" elimination against Beth following the episode 4 re-vote. However, prior to the start of the elimination, she withdrew from the competition due to her discontempt with being voted in. Beth was declared the winner by default
  • Only the winner, runner-up and third-place players were announced at the conclusion of the Final Challenge. However, the points and rankings of the remaining finalists could still be tabulated and is thus reflected in the overall results. Jemmye and Ruthie crossed the finish line near simultaneously and either earned three or four points for the Final Leg of the Final Challenge. This total was not revealed on the show. As a result, the total points for both contestants could be either 16 or 17, and their final placement would either be 7th or 8th
  • The Gold Team completed the "Melt Away" challenge first however, they were retroactively issued a ten-minute penalty for breaking two shields as per the game's rules. The Silver Team finished within ten minutes of this time and, with no issued penalties, were declared the winners of the challenge

The Challenge : All-Stars (Season 2)

All-Stars 2 features a daily challenge, nomination process and an elimination round
Daily Challenge: Players compete in a main challenge either individually, in pairs or in teams. For team challenges, each team must select one male and one female representative before the challenge begins. The winning male and female (for individual challenges), winning pair (for pair challenges) or winning representatives (for team challenges) are immune from elimination and earn power for the round while respective losing players of each gender, losing pair or losing representatives of the last-place team are automatically sent into the Arena
Nominations: The daily challenge winners nominate two men and two women to potentially go into the elimination round.

The male and female who receive the most votes will participate in the elimination round
Eliminations (The Arena): The losers of the daily challenge compete in an individual elimination round against the nominated player of the same gender. The loser is eliminated while the winner remains in the game and earns the Life Shield for the next round of play

In the sixth episode, players were required to form male-female teams of two to compete in the "Deep Dive" challenge. After the challenge, it was revealed that players would compete in these teams for the remainder of the season. The winning team of the daily challenge is immune while the losing team is automatically sent into the Arena. The winners must nominate two teams where at nominations, eligible players would vote for one of these teams to compete in the Arena against the last-place team

Twists
Life Shield: The winning players or team of an elimination round are awarded with the Life Shield for the next cycle of the game. They may use the Life Shield to save themselves if they place last in the subsequent challenge, or save one of the nominees selected by the daily challenge winners. Players or teams are ineligible to vote for the respective cycle of the game if they elect to use the Life Shield
---If players use the Life Shield to save themselves as the losing representative in a team challenge, they must select a replacement player to compete in the Arena in their place. If teams use the Life Shield to save themselves after placing last in a challenge, the second-last team is sent to the Arena in their place
---If players use the Life Shield to save a nominee or nominated team, the winners of the daily challenge must select a replacement nominee in their place.

Memorable Moments

  • Prior to the "Pole Wrestle" elimination, Kendal was shown to be medically removed from the competition after suffering a joint disorder during the "Deep Dive" challenge.  On social media, she later clarified that her removal was actually due to testing positive for COVID-19 and that the symptoms were analogous with the injury she sustained. Due to uneven numbers, the "Pole Wrestle" elimination was played as an individual male elimination round. Jasmine and Laterrian formed a new team following the "Pole Wrestle" elimination at the end of episode 6
  • Prior to the episode 7 elimination, Casey was medically removed from the competition after learning that she was pregnant; Cohutta was concurrently sent home as a result of being Casey's partner. Due to Casey & Cohutta's departure, the episode 7 elimination round was cancelled and both teams set to participate remained in the game
  • After Jonna & MJ won the Final Challenge, both Darrell & Janelle and Melinda & Nehemiah were still attempting to unlock their safes. No team was shown completing this portion and the show did not identify a runner-up or third-place team; therefore both teams are listed as runners-up. Ayanna & Teck withdrew from the Final Challenge during Phase One after Ayanna felt she couldn't continue due to mental and physical exhaustion
  • Arena Eliminations - Nehemiah beat Derek C; Ayanna beat Leah; Cohutta beat Ryan; Jodi beat Sophia; Ayanna beat Katie; Brad beat Derrick K, Teck beat Steve; Melinda beat Tina; Laterrian beat Tyler; Nehemiah/Melinda beat Laterrian/Jasmine; Darrell/Janelle beat Brad/Jodi

The Challenge : All-Stars (Season 3)

All Stars 3 consists of a daily challenge, winner's selection and an elimination round
Daily Challenge: Players individually compete in a main challenge. The last-place male and female are automatically sent to elimination. The three highest-placing male and female players form the "Authority" and are immune from elimination
The Authority: Players in the Authority are awarded the power to collectively select a male and female player to compete in an elimination round against the last-place players
Eliminations (The Arena): The last-place players from the daily challenge compete against the players selected by the Authority in an elimination round. The winners remain in the game while the losers are eliminated

From episode 5, the Authority would be reduced to only the first-place male and female of each challenge and the format changed. The Authority had to collectively select one male and one female to compete in the Arena. At the Arena, the selected players must then call-out an opponent of the same gender to compete against them. The winners remain in the game while the losers are eliminated

Twists
Sabotage: Implemented for the first six episodes, the first-place male and female from daily challenge are awarded the "Sabotage" in addition to being part of the Authority. They may use the Sabotage to penalize another player (or themselves) with a disadvantage for the following daily challenge
Stars: Each player begins the game with one "Star". Upon winning an elimination round, players are awarded all the Stars their opponent currently possess. The more Stars a player has, the bigger an advantage they would receive later in the game. At the start of the Final Challenge, it was revealed that the player(s) with the most Stars would automatically receive five bonus points
