THE CHALLENGE SPIN-OFFS

The Challenge : USA

USA consists of a daily challenge, winner's selection and an elimination round. For the first seven episodes, players compete as male/female pairs which change for each cycle of the game
Daily Challenge: Players compete in a main challenge in male/female teams of two. The last-place team is automatically sent to the elimination round. The winners earn $5,000 each for their bank account and the power to select a second team to compete in the elimination against the last-place team
Eliminations ("The Arena"): The last-place team from the daily challenge compete in an elimination round against the team selected by the winners of the daily challenge. The losers are eliminated while the winners remain in the game and split all the money from their opponent's bank accounts

From episode 8, the game changed to an individual format, and elimination rounds were designated to one gender. Players compete in daily challenges individually, where the last-place player of the designated gender is automatically sent to the elimination round to compete against the same-gender player later selected by the winners. The winner remains in the game and receives all the money in their opponent's bank account while the loser is eliminated
Bank Accounts: Each player starts the game with $1,000 in their bank account. To be eligible to compete in the Final Challenge, players must accumulate at least $5,000. They can earn money for their account by winning daily challenges or eliminations
The Algorithm: From episode two to episode seven, an algorithm assigns players a new partner of the opposite gender for the next cycle of the game. Players must be assigned a new partner they haven't previously been paired with, and cannot have the same partner twice in a row if they have already partnered with each eligible remaining player. The Algorithm also selects teams for day one of the Final Challenge

Final Challenge - Final Challenge was in Patagonia where they will race up Cerro Lopez Mountain.  Players complete a series of checkpoints in male-female pairs to earn points based on their placements.  The male and female players with the most points at the end of the Final Challenge are declared the winners but for any finalist to take home any of their money, they must complete the final
Day One
Checkpoint One - Teams or individuals must swim 1,600 feet from a barge to shore and solve a slide puzzle
Checkpoint Two - Teams or individuals must consume a plate of raw onion and garlic cloves. They must then proceed down a path, finding a series of math operations printed on barrels along the way, and answer once they reach the end
Checkpoint Three - Teams or individuals memorize ten numbers before bringing a decoding wheel to their station at the end of the path. There, they must sum the ten numbers to determine the orientation to place the wheel, then match the numbers to letters and determine a ten-letter word
Checkpoint Four & Overnight Stage - Teams or individuals must use a wheelbarrow to transfer a pile of dirt into a designated area. You must also find a combination underneath the dirt, piling the dirt back at it's original location to reach two hanging black bags and release them using the combination. For teams, one team member may sleep in a tent while their partner is completing the checkpoint; the female working alone is given less dirt to transfer. After finishing, they may spend the rest of the night in a tent
Day Two
Final Leg - The leg is worth double points. As individuals, players complete a ten-mile race to the peak of Cerro Lopez where the finish is located. Along the way, they must also solve a hexagonal puzzle and a Sudoku puzzle. The male and female players with the most points at the end are declared the winner

The Challenge : Australia

The Challenge: Australia consists of a main challenge, a winners' selection and an elimination round
Daily Challenge: Players compete in the main challenge in male/female teams of two. The last-place team is automatically sent to the elimination round. The winners earn the power to select a second team to compete in the elimination against the last-place team
Eliminations ("The Arena"): The last-place team from the daily challenge compete in an elimination round against the team selected by the winners of the daily challenge. The winners remain in the game while the losers are eliminated

Twists
The Algorithm: Introduced after the first elimination, an algorithm assigns players a new partner of the opposite gender for the next game cycle. Players must be assigned a new partner they haven't been paired with, or cannot have the same partner twice in a row if they have already partnered with each eligible remaining player. In Episode 5, as part of a twist (see below), the winners of the daily challenge were appointed as "the Algorithm" and chose the teams for the next cycle of the game, without the need to consider previous pairings. The Algorithm also selected teams during the Final Challenge
Halfway Point twist: To mark the halfway point of the season, a twist was announced after the "Ball & Chain" elimination in Episode 5. Firstly, the losers of the elimination were not eliminated. Secondly, the winners of the same elimination were awarded the option to remain as a team for the next cycle of the game or separate. Finally, the reigning daily challenge winners were appointed as the "Algorithm" and awarded the power to decide the teams for the next cycle of the game.

Final Challenge -After the "Pato Brawl" elimination, the Algorithm selected new teams before it was announced the remaining six contestants would immediately commence the Final Challenge. The Final Challenge consisted of an Overnight Stage and three checkpoints, which players completed in male-female pairs; the Algorithm selected new pairs for each checkpoint. At the end of the Final Challenge, each individual's time from the three checkpoints was accumulated to determine the male and female winners of Australia, who receive $100,000 each. If, at any point, a teammate quits, their partner is also eliminated
Day One
Overnight Stage - Teams race to a campsite in an abandoned town and solve a puzzle. Once complete, one team member may sleep in a tent at once while their partner must stand on a platform outside during this time
Day Two
Checkpoint #1: Team members remain with their partner from the Overnight Stage for the checkpoint. Teams must collectively cycle 100km on a stationary bike, then race to a river and swim to two buoys to collect bags of puzzle pieces. After returning the puzzle pieces to their station, teams must then run down a path to view and memorize an answer key before recreating the key at their station using the puzzle pieces
Checkpoint #2: Teams must carry a plank to a field and use it to transfer three barrels across the field without touching the ground. Once complete, teams proceed to the next checkpoint
Checkpoint #3: Teams must transfer 16 tyres labelled with the names of eliminated contestants from the season down a track and arrange them on a pole in the order they were eliminated. Afterwards, they must push a 1,500-kilogram car across a 100-metre field before proceeding to the finish line where the results are announced

Final Challenge - The final eight contestants competed in the Final Challenge, where they completed timed checkpoints in male-female pairs. For the first two checkpoints, players competed in teams determined by the Algorithm at the end of the "Balls In" elimination; the last team to complete the first two checkpoints were eliminated. Afterwards, the remaining six players completed the final two checkpoints — in which the Algorithm selected new teams for each checkpoint. At the end of the Final Challenge, each individual's time from the four checkpoints were accumulated to determine the male and female winners of UK, who receive £50,000 each
Checkpoint #1:Teams must collectively cycle 100km on a stationary bike before proceeding to the next checkpoint.
Checkpoint #2: Teams swim through a swamp to collect bags of puzzle pieces at two platforms. After returning the puzzle pieces to their station, teams must then run down a path to view and memorize an answer key before recreating the key at their station using the puzzle pieces. Once complete, teams then proceed to the next Algorithm — the last team to reach the Algorithm is eliminated from the Final Challenge
Eliminated: AJ & Arabella (4th place)
Checkpoint #3: Teams must untangle a chain, pull sled across a field and arrange four cubes on the sled so each side shows four unique symbols
Checkpoint #4:Teams must transfer tyres labelled with the names of eliminated contestants and elimination games, including several decoy names, down a track.

At the end of Stage 4, the two individuals with the slowest overall times were eliminated
Stage 1: Teams must collectively cycle 30 km on stationary bikes before proceeding to the end of the stage
Stage 2: Teams must cycle bicycles to a river. There, each team member must swim to different sides of the river to collect bags of puzzle pieces from a platform. After returning the puzzle pieces to their station, teams must then run down a path to view and memorize an answer key before recreating the key at their station using the puzzle pieces and proceeding to the end of the stage
Stage 3: Teams must use a plank and three barrels to cross a field without touching the ground before proceeding to the end of the stage
Stage 4: Teams must push a car across a field before proceeding to the end of the stage where each individual's time from the four stages are calculated.

The Challenge : World Championship

World Championship consists of a daily challenge, nomination process, winner's selection and an elimination round. The first episode had only the "MVPs" (contestants from the spin-off seasons) competing individually. After the first elimination, each MVP picked their "Legend" partner (players from the flagship series) based on the order they completed the "Qualifier" challenge. The individual and paired format of the game is as follows:
Daily Challenge: Teams compete in a daily challenge where the last-place team is automatically sent to the elimination round. The winning team is immune and earns the ability to select a second team to compete in the elimination round between the two teams later selected at nominations
Nominations: Teams, besides the winners and losers of the daily challenge, vote for two teams to compete in the elimination round. The two teams that receive the most votes are nominated for elimination. For episode 11, teams only vote for one team instead of two
Eliminations ("The Arena"): At the Arena, the winners from the daily challenge vote between the two nominated teams to select the second team to compete in the elimination round against the last-place team. The winners remain in the competition while the losers are eliminated.

Afterwards, teams return to The Fear Express and each team can select one member to receive an IV drip. Teams are then treated to a banquet and given a key (which they require later in the Final Challenge) before the Overnight Stage is announced
Overnight Stage ("Insomnia"): Teams must spend the entire night awake on The Fear Express, and team members are shocked by a shock collar if they fall asleep. The following morning, the first team to complete the "Loops of Hell" stage receive one hour of sleep, second place receives 30 minutes and third place receives 15 minutes before the Final Challenge continues
Day Two
Race to the Finish: Teams must cycle to the end of a trail, then follow several arrows on foot to the next checkpoint

The Challenge : USA Season 2

The second season of The Challenge: USA features a daily challenge, nomination process and an elimination round. This season initially had contestants competing in three teams decided during the first episode. The format is as follows :
Daily Challenge: Teams compete in a main challenge where the winning team is immune from elimination and earns the power to nominate one male and one female contestant to potentially compete in the elimination round
Nominations: Members of both losing teams privately vote for one contestant, of either gender, to potentially compete in the elimination round. This voting acts as a random ballot, with a ball being added to the Hopper for each vote a contestant receives, increasing their probability of being selected to compete in the elimination round
Eliminations ("The Arena"): At the Arena, the Hopper randomly selects one contestant who received votes to compete in the elimination round. The same-gender player nominated by the challenge winners then becomes their opponent for elimination. The winner remains in the game while the loser is eliminated

At the end of Episode 7, teams were disbanded and the game changed to an individual format, with challenge winners limited to only the top performing male and female contestant
Twists
The Hopper: The Hopper is a lottery machine which randomly selects a ball with the name of the contestant to compete in the Arena
Defection: During the team format, the winners of elimination rounds may choose to remain on their current team or "defect" and join either of the remaining two teams. If they choose to defect, they must select a player of the same gender from their desired team to swap positions with
Double Elimination: Episodes 4, 10 and 13 featured double eliminations where one male and one female contestant were eliminated. Both contestants nominated by the challenge winners were guaranteed to compete in the Arena, while the Hopper selected one contestant of each gender to compete as their opponents

Final Challenge - The final eight contestants competed in the Final Challenge, which began the day after the "Hall Brawl" elimination
Day One
For the first day, players compete in four trials based on four traits needed to become a champion. The top-performing male and female player of each trial earn a one-minute advantage for day two, while the respective last place male and female player receive a one-minute penalty. For each trial, players can also "double down" and call that they will win a trial. This doubles their advantage to two minutes if they win the trial, but also doubles their penalty to two minutes if they place last. Afterwards, players had to participate in an Overnight Stage challenge which went unaired in the episode
Trial 1 (Strength): Players must use a sled to haul four boxes proportional to their bodyweight up a hill
Trial 2 (Smarts): Players compete in a five-word spelling bee, earning one point for each correctly-spelled word
Trial 3 (Skills): Players must arrange tiles into a grid, so that four squares of the same color cannot be in a row
Trial 4 (Steel Stomach): Players must consume three out of four dishes from the choices of: a tofu and sauerkraut smoothie, a chia stack topped with mealworms and crickets, wasabi crackers and loaded chilli truffles. Overnight Stage: Players spent the night at a campsite and had to complete an unaired overnight segment before they could sleep. As a group, players had to stand on a narrow pedestal for one hour, counting the time themselves, before stepping off. If they stepped off before one hour or after one hour and five minutes, they would have to restart
Day Two
Players complete a ten-mile race to the finish line at the top of a mountain, departing based on the time advantages or penalties earned during the previous day. Along the way are three "Risk Stations". Players can choose to spend time attempting the challenges at the first two Risk Stations to earn an advantage, while the third Risk Station is mandatory to complete. Additionally, the last male and female player to reach the second Risk Station are eliminated from the Final Challenge
Risk Station 1: Players can attempt to throw an axe and hit a target within five attempts to access a 1.2-mile shortcut to the next station. From this station, all players must carry a heavy rock to the next station
Risk Station 2: Players can attempt to place rocks in one side of a scale so that it balances out the other side, within one try. If they are successful, they can ride an ATV one mile to the next Risk Station. The last male and female player to arrive at Risk Station 2 are eliminated - Eliminated: Faysal[b] and Tori (4th place)
Risk Station 3: Players must stack cinder blocks with the names of eliminated contestants in the order they were eliminated before proceeding to the finish line. The first male and female player to reach the finish line are declared the winners of the season and receive $250,000 each
