With The Challenge: All Stars 3 on the way, many fans are anticipating an epic season of the Paramount Plus spinoff. However, many viewers are also wondering if The Challenge will still be on MTV.
Fear not, Season 38 is still in the works and casting has been looking at which veterans and rookies to bring on board for another season of the flagship show.
In a recent social media post, a Challenge insider pointed out three people from other reality TV shows who have been contacted to appear on The Challenge season 38.
The Challenge Season 38 Rookie Call Rumors
During MTV’s The Challenge Originally only featuring stars from Real World and Road Rules, it has since expanded to include cast members from other reality TV shows.
Notably, individuals from Are You The One?, Love Island, Ex on the Beach, Survivor and Big Brother have appeared on MTV’s competitive show, with the latter show featuring two of The Challenge’s youngest champions.
So it’s not surprising that Big Brother rookies continue to get calls for the show. Based on a recent tweet from a fan, several Big Brother stars have been contacted to cast The Challenge Season 38.
The fan’s tweet shows three people from BB and one from Survivor. However, Challenge insider @GamerVev retweeted the post, noting that casting did not contact any of the people shown.
The photo above shows David Alexander from Big Brother 21 and 22, Derek Frazier from BB 23, Britini D’Angelo from BB 23 and Missy Byrd from Survivor 39.
Spoiler alert: Of those cast members, David was recently part of the CBS spinoff cast of The Challenge, so he might be the one they haven’t contacted. Monsters & Critics previously reported on another Big Brother star possibly contacted for season 38.
If any of the BB stars join the show, they can join recent Big Brother regulars, which have included Josh Martinez, Fessy Shafaat, Amber Borzotra and Kaycee Clark. The latter two cast members, alongside teammate Chris “CT” Tamburello, were winners in seasons 36 and 37, respectively.
Other speculation for season 38 includes returning vets
As of this writing, there’s no official word or spoilers as to who made the final cast for The Challenge Season 38, but speculation continues. For example, Johnny Bananas wowed fans when he had a podcast episode with Challenge host TJ Lavin and indicated that he was ready to return back to the MTV show.
Also, recently there have been rumors that the former Total Madness finalist is Melissa Reeves try to get in shape in four weeks so she could return for The Challenge.
Two other names that have surfaced are veteran stars Laurel Stucky and Tony Raines, both of whom competed in the finals. Laurel reached four playoffs in her first four seasons. She was a winner of The Challenge: Rivals, her fourth season of the show.
A constant at The Challenge for many seasons has been host TJ Lavin. For now, it seems like a safe bet that he’ll return as host or handler or whatever clever name he’s given to the new season’s theme.
Filming for the new season of the MTV show has yet to begin, but it’s believed to begin at a location outside of the United States within the next few weeks. If so, expect plenty of cast spoilers to hit the internet.
The Challenge Season 38 is TBA for MTV. The Challenge: All Stars 3 launches May 11th on Paramount Plus.
