Article: MTV’s Adventure-Packed Survival Series “Stranded With A Million Dollars” Airs February 21st!

What would you do if you had a million dollars? For the 10 competitors on MTV’s highly-anticipated and adventure-packed show, “Stranded With A Million Dollars,” they must join together and use their money wisely in order to survive and win the competition. MTV’s all new, survival series, “Stranded With A Million Dollars” is set to make its way to our TV screens on February 21st at 10:00 PM ET / PT. As the competitors go through incredibly tough and intense challenges and have to decide if the exorbitant expenses for survival items are really worth it, “Stranded With A Million Dollars” is bound to be a show that everyone will be glued to their TV screens watching.

According to the press release, “The series drops 10 adventurers on an island with nothing but the clothes on their backs and $1 million in cash.  Those who survive for 40 days filled with gut-wrenching journeys and demanding physical challenges will split the money as their prize.  The catch?  They can buy all of the survival supplies and creature comforts they desire, but everything is crazy expensive (think $30K for a tent), all decisions to make a purchase require a group majority and the cost comes out of their shared prize money.

The participants are free to leave the island at any point by shooting a flare gun indicating they’re ready to throw in the towel and leave their pride and accumulated cash behind.  Friends and foes are forced to work together in an intense group dynamic that tests psychological limits, pushes personalities to the brink and leaves everyone wondering who, if anyone, will make it to the end in this genre-busting series that would leave Katniss Everdeen breathless and the Lord of the Flies boys running for the hills.”

The show even incorporates modern technology with drone cameras and robo-cam technology which makes the show even more unique and fascinating to watch.

Meet the cast of “Stranded With A Million Dollars” below and be sure to tune in to the premiere of the show on February 21st at 10:00 PM ET / PT.

Article: MTV’s “The Challenge: Invasion” Brings A Whole Lot Of Excitement With Its Two-Hour Premiere On February 7th!

“The Challenge” has certainly been an MTV favorite amongst all viewers, and how could it not be?! It has some crazy awesome moments, epic challenges, and lots of drama and romance that you can’t help but get hooked on to the show. Well, “The Challenge” has a whole lot more excitement for viewers to enjoy with its highly-anticipated return to our TV screens on February 7th at 9:00 PM ET / PT with a two-hour premiere episode. This season brings both competitors and viewers’ anticipation to another level as “The Challenge: Invasion” has definitely gotten even more intense with a special twist. The Underdogs who are fighting to win the title of Champion have no idea what is coming for them when they get the surprise that eight Challenge Champions will be making their way to join the competition.

“The Challenge: Invasion” was filmed entirely in Thailand and is filled with a lot more challenges, romance, and the test of friendships. Competitors will be striving to win the $350,000 prize and the title of this season’s champion but it won’t be easy. This season is bound to have everyone at the edge of their seats wondering who will stay, who will be eliminated, and who will be crowned Champion.

According to the press release, “Before they get the news that they must face off against the Champions, The Underdogs first shock comes with the revelation that they must compete against one another to earn their way out of the desolate, barebones accommodations known as “The Shelter.”  Only after they battle their way out of The Shelter, will they be allowed to move into a posh estate called “The Oasis.”  As these Underdogs fight and claw their way through the game, the very best will rise to the top and only twelve worthy Underdogs will earn their spot in The Oasis, where they will live in the lap of luxury. Their relief is ultimately short-lived as past Challenge winners make their way to The Oasis to shake things up.

The most decorated champ in Challenge history and last season’s winner, Johnny “Bananas,” returns after executing one of the most cunning and controversial moves in Challenge history; reformed Boston bad boy CT makes a triumphant return after a three-year absence with a new outlook on life; rebel Cara Maria is back and more fired up than ever after taking a well-deserved break following her “Battle of the Bloodlines” win and despite this being his fifth time on The Challenge, Shane has yet to earn his stripes as a Champion. Now he’s back and ready to fight for the ultimate prize as an Underdog.”

Be sure to mark your calendars for the premiere of “The Challenge: Invasion” on MTV on February 7th at 9:00 PM ET / PT. Get to know the cast by checking out who will be joining the Underdogs and the Champions below.

YOU can join in on the fun by competing in The Challenge: Fantasy League. All you have to do is sign up and each week you’ll choose a team of two Challengers. With action categories including competition, drama, and romance, you can rack up points. The grand prize winner will get the experience of a lifetime by winning a chance to go to the 2017 VMAs!
