MTV's 'The Challenge' Helicopter Crashes in Agentina, Kills Two

So sad – two people contracted by MTV’s The Challenge died on Saturday (December 12) from a helicopter crash in Argentina.

According to AP, the pilot and a technician were traveling to a location for the show, which is currently filming its 28th season, rumored to be Rivals III.

The Bell 206 helicopter crashed over the reservoir at Potrerillos Dam, approximately 600 miles from Buenos Aires. Searchers were attempting to get to the wreckage, but it’s about 200 feet below the surface. The cause of the accident is still unknown.

MTV and Bunim/Murray Productions confirmed that the helicopter was being used for the show, but neither cast nor crew members were on board at the time.

Our thoughts go out to family and friends of those deceased.
