This season on The Challenge, 20 competitors are abandoned on a deserted island near the coast of Panama, where their living conditions are rustic and there's only a limited amount of food and sparse accommodations. Just surviving will be a challenge unto itself.
Those who can handle life on The Island will be rewarded with a chance at claiming a $300,000 treasure, which is buried on a smaller island in the distance. The goal for the players this season is to build seaworthy crafts that will transport them to this island to find the loot. Every few days, there will be air drops which deliver vital supplies as well as the materials needed to construct two boats, which the competitors will be building over the course of The Challenge to get them to the treasure.
