The latest episode of The Challenge: Spies, Lies, and Allies did not disappoint, leaving fans on the edge of their seats after an intense cliffhanger. The episode focused on challenge champ Amber Borzotra and her fight to stay in the game after fellow Big Brother alum Fessy Shafaat sent her into elimination.
Amber spoke with Benny Adams on Challenge Reality News about everything that’s gone down since her return, including the huge fight that ended with a drink thrown at Amber’s face.
The Double Agents winner has had a steep hill to climb since her return, and it didn’t make it any easier that she arrived later in the game compared to the rest of the cast. Still, she was ready to put on her game face and make some moves.
“I was tired of being nice. My first season taught me a lot about myself, so going into this, I wanted to speak up for myself. I didn’t have a plan, I knew I had a huge target on my back, but I just didn’t know where I stood with everybody and what alliances were being made, so going into this, I felt uneasy,” explained Borzotra… “ I knew that I had to have a conversation with Big Brother at some point because I didn’t know if I wanted to work with them because of some things that were said the previous season, and I just felt uncomfortable until I had a conversation with Kaycee and Fessy.”
That conversation made her feel safe in the game and with the Big Brother alliance. Still, unbeknownst to Amber, Fessy had another plan up his sleeve, which was to throw her into elimination because he wasn’t going to trust her. This made Amber the first vet to battle it out for a chance to stay in the game. The Big Brother alum says after that happened, she couldn’t help but think that not all but some of the players were playing a scared game.
“What bothered me was everyone was so against throwing vets in, but when they said my name, no one cared. That’s when it got to the point where I said okay, maybe they are playing a scared game.” Explained Borzotra, “I’m bothered and hurt because these are people that I love even outside of the game. Why in the game do you not trust me because I’ve never given you a reason not to.”
Speaking of trust, Fessy and Kaycee were not the only people who had trust issues; during the latest episode, some of the rookies like Esther Agunbiade and Berna Canbeldek revealed they felt some type of way about the challenge champ, even at one point calling Amber fake.
“You can say whatever you want about me, but I’ve never given anyone a reason to think that. That might be what you feel, but you don’t know me outside of the game. You’ve probably known me two weeks max, and this is what you’re thinking about me? That’s on you, that’s something inside of you that feels some type of way about me… I know who I am, and I love myself, and I don’t care what anyone has to say. At the end of the day, one thing I am not is fake.”
Amber says she didn’t want any bad blood between the ladies and reached out to them to squash any beef.
“I want to be the bigger and better person, that’s like hey, I don’t know what happened, and I don’t know why you felt this way, but it’s all love on my end. I’m sorry if I ever hurt you or if I did anything to make you feel some type of way. I think they’re both beautiful women, and I have nothing against anybody.”
At the end of the episode, fans saw the first big fight that involved Fessy, Josh, Amber, and Esther. Viewers got a glimpse of Fessy getting physical with Josh and Esther throwing a drink at Amber.
“At that point, I was seeing red. I didn’t know what was going on. If anything, it was between Fessy and I. Anybody else that was just jumping in was just stirring the pot. It escalated way bigger than it should have.” Said Borzotra. “I don’t like confrontation, and In my life, that’s the biggest fight I’ve ever been in, so I just had to walk away and get out of the situation because it’s not worth it.”
