[Spoiler alert: Spoilers ahead for MTV’s The Challenge Season 37.]

MTV’s ‘The Challenge: Spies, Lies, and Allies’ has an official trailer

The trailer is officially here for MTV’s The Challenge: Spies, Lies, and Allies. While fans and spoiler accounts already seemingly know what may occur throughout the season, the trailer appears to confirm a number of theories. First off, spoiler accounts correctly predicted the season name and theme. Second, spoilers accounts also noted the season would include just as many international players as U.S. players. The trailer confirms this.

MTV’s trailer for the new season begins with coordinates in Croatia where the season takes place. Then, it quickly heads into the international theme by stating in text there are “17 international operatives” playing the game. Additionally, 17 U.S. players joined the cast, and many of them are veteran contestants.

“You’ve got team Germany, team Romania, team Nigeria,” contestant Kyle Christie’s voiceover states in the trailer. “If they band together, we’re screwed.”

“All the vets are in this super alliance,” Ashley “Millionaire” Mitchell, who’s won the game twice, also states in the trailer. This gives a clue right from the beginning who might work with who.

Plenty of subtle clues lie within MTV’s The Challenge Season 37 trailer. From fights to romance to alliances, we’ll eventually see how it all unfolds. And it seems there are additional clues in the trailer to suggest the season has double or pair-based eliminations.

According to Allan Aguirre for Medium, there’s a quick shot of all of the contestants walking into an elimination round — and every contestant in the shot is wearing what looks like elimination gear. This clue indicates the season won’t have elimination rounds just dedicated to men or women. Instead, it’s more likely we’ll see elimination nights including both genders. Aguirre also notes War of the Worlds I had 34 contestants at the start of the season, and two contestants were eliminated during each round until all pairs eventually split.

A spoiler thread from PinkRose on Vevmo talks about eliminations as well. It looks like there might be a mix of one on one eliminations and paired eliminations through the season. Renan Hellemans and Michaela Bradshaw are allegedly the first pair to get eliminated. Cory Wharton and Michele Fitzgerald allegedly beat them.
