Challenge: Total Madness

The Challenge 35: Rumors & Speculation

Who’s ready for another season? Because MTV is.

Early calls have gone out to potential Challengers. Below are a list of people who are believed to have received a call. Keep in mind, many people only get the availability call. Some people do not progress past this and will not be asked onto the final show.

  1. I wonder what’s more sad the speculated cast so far are all from war of the worlds 2 or the fact that this will be johnnys 20th season

  2. As a watcher of Big Brother, Fessy would be perfect for the Challenge. Brett would be too annoying. Though they did put Josh on the Challenge, and he is not good TV.

    1. I know this is probably not the format but this cast could almost fit a cutthroat/ruins them of champs vs vets vs rookies.
