As addicted as we all are to the drama and steamy romances in Real World and Road Rules, they don't hold a candle to the intense cast battles we've seen on The Challenge. Since the popular MTV spinoff is already in it's 29th season, we thought we'd take a little trip down memory lane — and what better way to do it than with pics of our favorites then and now?
It has been nearly three decades since we first witnessed the cast eating gross insect dinners and having wild wrestling matches, but if you've been following the cast at all, you've probably noticed that some of them took unexpected career turns. For instance, did you know that Abram Boise, who stayed with the show for over a decade, is now an art director? Or that Wes Bergmann is now a startup engineer who's currently engaged? Yeah, we're still trying to wrap our heads around it too. We'd have never thought this was where these guys would end up!
And while some chose to venture out and try different fields, others, like Johnny 'Bananas' Devenanzio, can still be seen battling it out with the cast in the most recent season, Invasion of the Champions!
