The one-hour show will be highlighted by two elimination challenges as the group whittles itself down from four to two players. The first will be a team competition with a twist, in which players will pair up and test the depth of their character pools by collectively barring themselves from using any character more than once. Later, the three remaining players will face off in a round-robin showdown. The episode will also feature a humorous attempt to calm on-edge nerves and return the relaxed dynamic of episodes past with a “Goat Yoga” session (seen in the preview clip above).

The Challenger will then conclude on TBS with the thrilling final episode as the winner will be determined, Friday, May 18 at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
