Finale: Cirque du Soleil is the 8th season of Finale. It premiered on December 12th, 2014. The season had 12 contestants, Mel Abano being the winner.
As the 8th season of Finale, Cirque Du Soleil was originally planned to take place in Atlantis, however, after a failed attempt, the location was scrapped. After a roughly four month hiatus from All-Stars, Finale spontaneously returned for the next season, which was held in the famous tourist trap, Cirque Du Soleil.
The season went relatively well, with a solid cast and well-planned challenges. However, the season is remembered for its dysfunctional cast and last-second rule altercations. According to the host, Cirque Du Soleli lands somewhere in the ranks of Broadway and Yukon.
- Double Elimination - Episodes which include two players going home in one Finale.
- Auction - A physical challenge is replaced by an auction, in which players can buy Rewards, Punishments, Immunity, and other luxury items.
- Fallen Comrades - A twist in which the final 3 take a portion of time before the final elimination to remember those that they either directly or indirectly eliminate. Contestants are led on a trail holding a post for each previously eliminated contestant. When players reach a post, they are expected to comment on the fallen contestant.
