Each team participates in numerous challenges, which are followed by an elimination round — "The Dome." The winning team of each challenge earns the title of "Power Couple," as well as immunity from entering The Dome, while the last-place finisher is automatically sent to The Dome. The "Power Couple" also earns the right of choosing the team that will face the last-place finisher in The Dome. The team who wins the elimination round returns to the game and has a shot at a $350,000 prize, while the losing team is eliminated from the game.

After the first eight "Dome" games, a losing team will have a chance to re-join the competition in "Battle of the EX-iled," which will pit a newly-eliminated couple against the winner of the previous week's "Ex-iled" winner. Ex-ile matches and mini episodes were shown on and MTV aired a Battle of the EX-iled Recap special after episode 6 showing progress in ex-iles up to that point.

Money for finalists is split as follows:

  • First Place: $250,000 ($125,000 each)
  • Second Place: $70,000 ($35,000 each)
  • Third Place: $30,000 ($15,000 each)
