We’ll just let TJ Lavin set up the latest season of The Challenge: “Welcome to your worst nightmare.”

PEOPLE has the exclusive First Look at The Challenge: Rivals III, which premieres this May with a supersized 90-minute premiere.

The long-running MTV competition enters its 28th season with 13 teams competing for the $350,000 prize in the third iteration of the drama-stoking “Rivals” theme – only this time, the partnerships are mixed, matching up male and female duos.

Several old favorites from The Real World and Are You the One? are returning: Wes Bergmann, Camila Nakagawa and, of course, Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio.

Amid tears, screaming matches, naked strolls through Hautulco, Mexico, and adrenaline-surging challenges, only one lady manages to utter the sentence “I can’t believe I’m stuck with that douchebag” – but we have a feeling she speaks for everyone who signed up for this twisty, turbulent season.
