New 'Challenge' promo: 'The stakes don't get any higher' as season 25 hits its back half -- VIDEO

The Challenge

(MTV)

Thursday sees the Free Agents on this Challenge get over the hump – but that doesn’t mean season 25 will be all downhill in its back half.

EW can exclusively premiere a new midseason supertease that, like any Challenge promo, has more than its fair share of blood, sweat, and tears. As Johnny Bananas foreshadows, “The stakes don’t get any higher.” Hook-ups will be up even hotter, the Challengers’ superhuman bodies will continue to crumble from overexertion, murder will be threatened, and let’s not neglect to point out that CT will claim that one of his competitors “would eat her own child if she was hungry.”

Who exactly is this she-cannibal causing even Chris “I punched a cactus” Tamburello quaking in his boots? Find out below.

The Challenge: Free Agents airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on MTV.
