Plot Synopsis

Hosted by NFL star Victor Cruz, THE CHALLENGE: CHAMPS VS. PROS features some of the strongest competitors from the THE CHALLENGE franchise, going head to head with some of the fiercest competitors who span the professional sports world from football to skiing, UFC to surfing and more. The pros include Olympic athletes Lolo Jones (hurdler/bobsledder), Lindsey Jacobellis (snowboarder), Louise Hazel (heptathelte) and Gus Kenworthy (skier); MMA star CM Punk; former WNBA star Candice Wiggins; retired NFL stars Shawne Merriman and Kamerion Wimbley; pro surfer Tia Blanco; and pro snowboarder Louie Vito. Each episode of the six-week event will focus on a different strength: Agility, Ingenuity, Brawn, Brains, Endurance, and Guts. Every week the winning team's captain will choose one member of their team to go into the elimination round and the rest of the team will vote in their opponent. The losing team's captain is automatically sent into elimination and their team also nominates their opponent. The final male and female competitors of the season are put to the ultimate test, showcasing each strength in one heart-pounding race for the chance to win $50,000 to donate to their favorite charity.
