Paulie Calafiore of Big Brother and The Challenge fame is making a strong claim against MTV personality Johnny Bananas, saying the 1st Look host tried to get him banned from the reality competition show for two seasons. Paulie first joined The Challenge franchise on Season 32 (Final Reckoning), the closing to the Dirty Thirty trilogy.
Even in his rookie season, Paulie began making waves as a top competitor and for sparking a romance with Cara Maria Sorbello, who is also synonymous with The Challenge. A friendship could not be sparked between Paulie and Bananas, however, and the duo have been at each other's throats for three seasons now.
In the comments section of an Instagram post, Paulie noted that Bananas tried to get him banned from War of the Worlds and War of the Worlds 2. PeopleTV caught up with Paulie to see why he made those claims against Bananas, and they appear to be for two different reasons.
"After Final Reckoning, he had gone and said just because I rushed the stage at Zack, and at Kyle, and at Brad... he said I make the guys in the house feel uncomfortable."
