Warning: Spoilers ahead for Season 35 of MTV’s The Challenge.
Season 34 of MTV’s The Challenge is currently halfway finished, but that doesn’t mean Season 35 is not already in the works. As The Inquisitr previously reported, filming for Season 35 began this week after spoilers revealed the United States cast departed on Monday for Prague, Czech Republic. International cast members left on Tuesday and cameras are rumored to already be rolling for Season 35.
Last week only half of the cast was revealed on The Challenge Vevmo site by show insider, Pink Rose. Now the list has been rounded out with 28 competitors looking to nab that final win.
Aneesa Ferreira, Ashley Mitchell, Jenna Compono, Dee Nguyen, Jenny West, Mattie Lynn Breaux, Nany Gonzalez, Tori Deal, Johnny Bananas, Jordan Wiseley, Josh Martinez, Kyle Christie, Stephen Bear, Rogan O’Connor, and Wes Bergmann were the first cast members confirmed by the spoiler site.
Since then, 13 new cast members have been added to make up a healthy-sized group of 28 reality stars. The new names are mixed, with some players already having a Challenge or two under their belts, while certain rookies are from other reality programs such as The Amazing Race and Survivor.
Bayleigh Dayton, Chris “Swaggy C” Williams, Kaycee Clark, and Faysal “Fessy” Shafaat from Big Brother Season 20 will all be making their Challenge debuts in Season 35. Bayleigh and Swaggy C are engaged, and Fessy’s showmance partner Hayleigh Broucher was originally rumored to be on the cast as well, but it looks like she’s out for now.

09/26. A year ago today, I proposed to you on national TV, wanting to make you my wife. You said yes emphatically. A year later, we’re still going strong. We’re living in LA. And we’re booked and busy. I wouldn’t trade you for the world ???? One year down. Forever to go. I love you Bayleigh. Super duper infinity gang. #ThatRingTho ????
Challenge veterans Kailah Casillas, Tula “Big T” Fazakerley, Melissa Reeves, and Tori Hall have all also been added to the cast. It has been quite some time since Tori Hall appeared on the program after divorcing fellow veteran Brad Fiorenza. Kayla Fitzgerald, from The Amazing Race Season 30, will be the only newcomer from the CBS reality series.
Cory Wharton and Nelson Thomas of Team Young Buck will be back on the show after taking several seasons off. Chris “CT” Tamburello was rumored for Season 35 and was confirmed by the spoiler site earlier this week. The men will also be joined by newcomer Jay Starrett from Survivor: Millenials vs. Gen X and Ex on the Beach.
This season of 28 competitors includes few members than the past several seasons of The Challenge. That means there could be a few cast members who haven not yet been named or a possible twist could happen in which people are added along the way. Season 35 is set to complete the War of the Worlds trilogy, but the season’s official name has not been released at this time.
For now, this cast is solely based on spoilers from a Challenge insider and these spoilers have not been confirmed by MTV.
The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2 currently airs on MTV every Wednesday night at 9 p.m. ET.
