The 12 Days of Challenge Christmas

Hang up the stockings, break out the eggnog and let’s get down to business.

The sad truth: Very few Challenge fans will see a gift that stacks up to the Dirty Thirty grand prize — which amounted to $450,000 apiece for Jordan and Camila — this holiday season. Still, there’s plenty reason to be merry.

While carolers typically defer to “Oh Holy Night” or “Jingle Bells” to celebrate Santa’s looming flight around the globe, we at MTV decided to put a spin on another classic, “The 12 Days of Christmas.” The song typically paints pictures of maids-a-milking and geese-a-laying (man, this thing has not aged well). But why settle for those when, instead of “Five goooooolden riiiiings,” you can belt out “Five steaaaamy fliiiiiiings”?

Below, we’ve compiled a brand new collection of verses that’ll pair perfectly with your tinsel and punch. Take a pass, memorize it as best you can and consider busting it out at Christmas Eve services! And be sure to keep watching Champs vs. Stars every Tuesday at 10/9c -- and the brand-new season of The Challenge: Vendettas premieres on January 2.
