The Cataclysm: Panama is the twenty-first season of the fictional reality competition series The Cataclysm. Taking place in Panama, nine men and nine women will compete in the ultimate test of strength, endurance, and intelligence in order to be the "last one standing" and claim the $2,000,000 prize.
Contestant Cici Alexander later returned for The Cataclysm: Resurrection II.
- Exemption Challenge: The Cataclysm's immunity challenge. The winners of this challenge are exempt from elimination.
- Commander: Prior to an exemption challenge during the faction stage, each team must select a member to be the team captain. This player becomes the Commander for that challenge. The Commander of the winning faction gets to nominate three players from the opposite team to face the voting ballot.
- Ballot: The Cataclysm's elimination round. Those nominated to face the ballot risk being eliminated.
- Medallions: Two medallions are eligible to use in the game: the Resurrection Medallion and the Chaos Medallion. Contestants must solve clues to be able to find these medallions.
- Reward of Redemption: The power it possesses allows the holder to play it after the ballot votes have been read, where it saves the person with the highest number of votes from being eliminated. It can be found and used only once in the game.
