The Challenge is a show filled with intense fights and angry discussions. Since the beginning of the show, we’ve seen people say some really dumb things that cause waves in the house. Spies, Lies and Allies is no different, but production seems to want to erase these conversations from Challenge history.
Apparently, Ashley was removed for calling Josh gay during a fight. According to Gamer, it wasn’t even a slur, it was just “gay.”
Then, some of the men in the house complained about this. They asked production to remove Ashley, so they did.
Many fans have noted that this decision is very contradictory to prior Challenge seasons. On Final Reckoning, Kayleigh confessed to outing Natalie. Kayleigh got to stay in the game and return on War of the Worlds 2.
Now, fans will want to know what happened to Ashley and they will see the alleged conversation. Production could have just edited the fight out and allowed Ashley to stay in the game. By removing Ashley, they’re creating curiosity and losing one of the biggest players in the game.
Ashley has also gone on Twitter to vaguely discuss the incident. Essentially, she has confirmed that she acted out of anger. These rumors should not serve as a reflection of Josh’s sexuality. Ashley was just going for a low blow.
This is the first time we had someone removed for unaired comments. Lauren Coogan was taken out of the game for allegedly making racial comments about Aneesa.
