18th Season: 8 Finals, 6 Wins
Johnny Bananas is true Challenge royalty, with 17 seasons and 6 wins under his belt – including his infamous Rivals III victory, in which he opted to take the entire $275K prize rather than split it with his partner Sarah. Notably, he hasn’t made it to a final since then, though that may be more a testament to his ever-expanding list of enemies. After a brutal backstabbing sent him into an elimination upset in Vendettas, Bananas made it to the cusp of the finals in Final Reckoning, only to be knocked out of the game by former flame Natalie. His ultimate focus is on returning to the winner’s circle and reaffirming his status as Challenge GOAT. In a game filled with enemies and hungry young upstarts gunning for his crown, this season may be Bananas’ greatest test yet.
