Two Challenge alumni have returned to their native TV program! Bayleigh Dayton and Da’Vonne Rogers are appearing on the All Stars season of Big Brother.
Bayleigh appeared on season 20 originally, only migrating to The Challenge in 2020 for Total Madness. Da’Vonne appeared on seasons 17 and 18, later appearing on Final Reckoning and War of the Worlds. Both girls did much better on The Challenge. Their best Big Brother performances landed them as the first members of the jury.
Rumors circulated that Kaycee and Josh were supposed to appear on this season, but were dropped because they tested positive for COVID-19. This is likely because they were seen partying in Miami while Florida cases were on the rise. Julie Chen also confirmed that people were dropped from the cast for being positive. Again, Josh and Kaycee were not specifically named, but there is a lot of evidence that they were the ones dropped. Both are winners who have stated interest in returning.
For Bayleigh and Da’Vonne, this is a chance to improve their performance from prior seasons. Sadly, it will likely mean they cannot compete on season 36 of The Challenge.
