Now that Real World is on hiatus and Road Rules is dunzo, spinoff reality series The Challenge is the new reigning king of messy hookups and vicious rivalries. Since the popular MTV franchise is already in its 31st season, we thought we'd take a little trip down memory lane — and what better way to do it than with pics of our favorite The Challenge cast members, 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. Although noted staples like Johnny 'Bananas' Devenanzio still haven't left, and can still be seen battling it out in the most recent season, Vendettas, others have left the reality TV world altogether.
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? And after taking some time away to get married, have some kids and then get divorced, Brad Fiorenza is back competing? Yeah, we're still trying to wrap our heads around it all too. We'd have never thought this was where these guys would end up! Below, see what the rest of your faves from The Challenge are doing today.
