For the first time ever, the critically-acclaimed competition franchise will feature 17 international players alongside US players and is set to roll out globally across MTV’s international networks in over 190 countries in the coming months. The franchise that invented the reality competition genre continues to be a ratings juggernaut for MTV with a .94 full season average, making last season, Double Agents, one of the highest rated seasons in 8 years.
