Challenge: Invasion

Challenge 29: Wild Cast Speculation

AS OF OCTOBER 4th, 2016 THIS POST IS OUT OF DATE. Please view the official cast list here.

Alright guys! I’ve debated posting this for a while, as there are always plenty of cast rumors that emerge prior to departure for a Challenge season. Right now, availability calls for the 29th Challenge season have gone one.

Very little is known about this season right now. It is believed that the season will begin filming in October. Beyond that, nothing is known. While there is reason to believe all of the people below have been contacted for the season, this does not mean they will appear. Production attempts to determine who is available for the tentative filming dates. These people may decline their invitation, or they may accept and not make the final cut.

This list is supported by some of the information found here.

  1. I watched one of Susie’s and Sarah’s podcasts and they said Derek from rr viewers revenge got a call

  2. I believe this list totally. I think its enviable Bananas whens this season (rivals 3) and I think they will give him a break for the upcoming season just like they did in “battle of the seasons” just so they can get some new winners or even more wins for guys like CT, Abe, Zach, and maybe FINALLY Leroy. I love Bananas but I would love to see this cast listed above. Free agents 2?

  3. I love how the list is you are the one free, hopefully it stays like that because nobody wants those noobs.

  4. nany said she is taking the next challenge off for school but knowing her she will probably be on. I would say no jasmine or Theresa because they just had kids so I doubt they would be in a rush to do a challenge.

  5. I’ve dreamt of Derrick coming back for a while. I wish they’d do old school vets CT, Derrick, Veronica, Coral etc VS new school vets Bananas, Many etc

    1. Your not going to get those old school vets you listed above, also CT is not an old school vet like those you listed above, he’s is the same category as Bananas, Wes, etc.

      1. Word, CT is defintely one of the older schoolers appearing in the first Inferno. Definetly was there during the Golden Era.

    1. She sure does. I mean, she didn’t bring ANY drama. Her IQ was at least in the triple digits, unlike most of the cast. And she didn’t douche it up on a hoverboard! Who wants somebody like her on a Challenge?!?

      Seriously, though, I can’t see her getting cast. She was too normal for BMP.

  6. Lots of names we haven’t seen before. Of course we still have a lot of time and a lot can happen between now and then. Most excited about Marie return and the GBOGH rookies.

  7. I know things like “retirement” and “quitting” from these are just words (see: Sarah this season), but there are a handful on the list who would seem to be pretty safe to rule out …
    – Jordan (claims to be retired)
    – Camila (claims to be retired)
    – Theresa (new mother)
    – Nany (just announced she is going back to school)

  8. I don’t get the AYTO hate. There would be not future for The Challenge if they didn’t cast these new kids. There are some guys and gals from season 4 I think would be great the The Challenge. I think we’ve just had more Zeros than Heroes from the AYTO alum so far on The Challenge.

    1. I agree. Gotta keep new blood in if its going to continue. And Asaf from this current AYTO season will be challenge Gold!

    2. I’m kind of blah about it. I remember being pissed that people like Kenny and Diem were on The Duel because I didn’t want Fresh Meat on the show. Now I’m used to production muddying the waters and bringing in whomever they want. My only qualm with AYTO is the fact that they were introduced so close to Bloodlines. We really didn’t need both sources of new blood at the same time.

    3. On Exes 2 and Bloodlines they easily could’ve find two other pairs to compete, not sure how Rivals 3 would turn out though. And I rather have no Challenges instead of producing crappy seasons each year. The Challenge is becoming the WWE, boring and stale and before you know I’ll stop watching it like how did with wrestling.

  9. With what we have so for it could be exes 3 with teams of 4. The first is a exe of the second, second to third, etc. (Abe, cara, Thomas, Jaime), (Johnny d, Camilla, Devin, Kiki), (Zach, Jenna, jay, jeymme), (Dylan, Jenna, Dione, kailah- did not watch much of their season so this is a guess), (Jaime, Ashley m, Cory, Cheyenne), (Johnny r, averey, adam k, Brittany), (Jason- only one not on the list, Sylvia, Bruno, Ashley k), (ayto 4 team).

  10. I met Aneesa last month…She mentioned that she is enrolled in school and might not be back doing another challenge for a long time

  12. Would love a cutthroat 2 or team challenge of any kind. Also another duel would be good. Just no more pairs for now.

  13. Robin confirmed on Twitter last night that she received a call but didn’t make the final cut, so it sounds like they are def reaching out to vets
