    There Are Major Changes Coming To MTV's "The Challenge"

    Check out the exclusive trailer for MTV's 25th edition of The Challenge, called Free Agents, premiering April 10.


    Throughout its 16-year run, MTV's The Challenge has seen contestants chalk up their poor performances to subpar teammates, conspiring alliances, and sexual tension.

    So, for the show's upcoming 25th season, there will be no partners and no teams. For the first time, it's every (wo)man for themselves.

    The Challenge: Free Agents kicks off on April 10 with 28 MTV alumni fighting solo for more than $350,000 in prize money. And, also unlike previous seasons, Season 25 will see a random draw select one male contestant and one female contestant to head into the elimination round against contestants chosen by that week's winners.

    Below, BuzzFeed has the exclusive first trailer for The Challenge: Free Agents, and the roster for this season's competitors.
