The Challenge 38: Cast Speculation and Rumors

A bunch of random rumors and junk about season 38.

It’s been a while since The Challenge has been on our screens, but the show isn’t over. Season 38 is on the horizon, and rumors are starting to emerge. So, we’re going to explore some rumors and give huge props to Vevmo, Gamer, and PinkRose.

Format: Ride or Die

Teams are being cast with a close friend, ally, or significant other. Keep in mind that formats change. People drop, and suddenly production moves in a different direction. Perhaps most notably, this happened prior to Rivals 2.

  1. Any idea why Kyle is sitting out this season? I know it’s just speculation, but it seemed like he was willing to do every season until MTV stopped asking

  2. Why isn’t Cara or Paulie on this? I am over alot of the new girls an shes/ they’ve been off a few seasons?

      1. Definitely not doing the main show. Better chance she does All Stars

      2. I believe she’s a high impact Lawyer…. she unfortunately said she’d never appear again, She’s Absolutely 💯% the best Woman to ever Compete, She Not only Beat the Girls, she also Beat some Guys…. That’s Beast Mode!!!

  3. It probably won’t happen but I would love a season with at least 5 really strong women:

    Natalie A
