Challenge XXX: Dirty Thirty

The Challenge Season 30 Cast

It’s that time again! Another season is on the verge of launching…

I will be updating this post as information about Season 30 becomes available. Today is departure day, so I’ll be updating this as information comes through.

This really should be obvious, but this post will contain casting spoilers. If you don’t want to know the spoilers then you should click away now. Shout outs to Vevmo for doing their thing.

Alicia Wright from AYTO 5 is no longer believed to be on this cast. Per her own post, she was unable to attend due to medical issues, and I’m hoping for the best for her.

So without further ado:

Amanda Garcia (Are You the One? 3)

  1. Even with all the options from real world, ATYO, freshmeat and the bloodlines, they still won’t bring more variety to the show. 17 of them are from this season and rivals 3. That’s why the same select people win every season. I’m not saying for people to retire, but a season break from Johnny,Camilla,Jenna would be refreshing.

  2. Derrick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dude I’m pumped, Old school alliance vs the babies!!!!!! I say it’s time for Duel 3!!! Let the best Man and or Women win!!!

  3. AWESOMEEE!!!! lot of old school heavy hitters. Finally! Sad to see Shane isn’t coming back after the waves he made all season on invasion

  4. I can’t watch anything with that guy Chris from go big or go home. The most unappealing person, who I found very uncomfortable to watch. How would they think we want to see him again. I couldn’t watch that season because of him. I love me some CT and don’t want to give him up but I will read recaps till that creep is gone

      1. Wait so I don’t care for someone and that makes me a drama queen? As opposed to you who has to troll other peoples comments to actually create such drama? Ok. Well, since you asked: his desperate thirst and need to be tragically hip as well as him having the dial set to 11 every minute just annoyed and bothered me. I live in Brooklyn and am surrounded by hipsters, You know how you just feel when someone’s cool by nature vs when someone is trying way too hard? Your phony buddy Chris is trying way too hard. Ugh and that hair? It’s so affected and looks terrible I can’t look at his stupid face. Plus I don’t think he’s a nice guy deep down. He’s one of those guys that wants to be accepted for who he is (as he should be) but won’t accept others for who they are, and lets them know it.

    1. Yessss girl, I feel the same way. My biggest pet peeve is people who try way too hard. Like, can we just see who you really are without your fucking costume on? He looks like a walking hipster meme 🙄

    1. Me! But for that format, I think they should bring stronger women like Emily (winner of a Rivals season), Laurel, Evelyn, Nicole (from Invasion), etc. That would be a lot more fair and fun to watch; the other Battle of the Sexes seasons were completely dominated by guys.

      1. I think just as much strong girls as guys on that list. cuz some of those guys suck. lol. I just hope they don’t waste this list on a free for all. too many vets to just Free Agents or Duel I think

  5. I’m so excited for Veronica and Derrick, as I was also excited to see Darrell and CT. It’s always exciting to see some old contestants come back. I wish Shane would give it another chance, he was really good on Invasion

    1. CT is my all time fave. I practically shit myself when I saw him this last season. I thought he was done for good. He’s got such a good heart and is so damn funny. You can tell he’s just an all around awesome guy that would be super easy to talk to in real life.

  6. It has just been confirmed that Alicia has been in the hospital and will not be on the challenge. I wonder who will take her place?
