Get To Know The Rookies of ‘The Challenge: Double Agents’

A new season of The Challenge is on its way, which means a new group of rookies are ready to compete. Take a look at the Fresh faces joining The Challenge: Double Agents, including Natalie Harrison, LoLo Jones, and Lio Rush. 

It’s a good day to be a fan of The Challenge. That’s because on Thursday MTV announced the hit reality series will be back for its 36th season on December 9th, and on Friday the Network also dropped a trailer.

This season is called The Challenge: Double Agents, and not only did we get a premiere date, but we also know the official cast who will be battling it out for the grand prize.

You can expect to see fan favorites such as Wes Bergmann, Aneesa Ferreira, and Cory Wharton, as well as contestants we haven’t seen in a while, such as Theresa Jones and Darrell Taylor.

Like every season, there is some new blood making their debut, and proving they have what it takes to compete against some of the biggest and baddest players.

In total there are 10 rookies this season. Here’s a closer look at the new faces of The Challenge: Double Agents.

Amber Borzotra

Amber makes her debut on The Challenge after being a contestant on Big Brother 16. While in the house she proved she wasn’t one to mess around with. She even won the HOH competition during the second week.

Amber was eliminated during the 5th week due to being a threat in the game. We have a feeling she will be a tough competitor to go up against.

Amber Martinez

There’s another Amber in the mix of rookies this season, Amber Martinez was a contestant on Are You The One season 8.

Not only was she on AYTO, but the 8th season made history for having the first full cast of sexually fluid contestants on a U.S. dating reality show.

We can’t wait to see what Amber M has in store this season.

Gabby Allen

Gabby hails from two reality shows, Love Island and Celebrity Big Brother UK.

On Love Island, Gabby made it all the way to the finals finishing in fourth place. She also finished in 6th place on Big Brother UK.

According to her Instagram, Gabby is also a fitness trainer. Will her experience on two reality shows help her? We’ll just have to wait and see!

Joseph Allen

We can’t wait to see Joseph Allen make his debut on The Challenge. His last appearance on reality TV was America’s Got Talent.

Joseph made it all the way to the quarterfinals with his singing and rapping skills, but unfortunately did not receive enough votes to make it to the Semifinals.

He’s also the owner of Attempt Impossible, an online store where you can purchase Tees, caps, and much more.

Lio Rush

We have a feeling Lio Rush is going to be the MVP this season. The former WWE wrestler is coming into the Challenge House with an impressive resume.

Before WWE, Rush was a part of Ring Of Honor where he won the 2016 Top Prospect Tournament. He also won the Combat Zone Wrestling World Heavyweight Championship, and the CZW Wired Championship.

LoLo Jones

Many fans of The Challenge are familiar with LoLo Jones after she appeared on The Challenge: Champs vs. Pros, and let’s just say this woman does not play around.

The U.S. Olympian…(yes you read that right) will not be an easy one to beat. Not only is she athletic, but she was also a contestant on Celebrity Big Brother coming in 3rd place.

Mechie Harris

Mechie appeared on Ex On The Beach Season 3. Along with being on reality TV, Mechie is also a talented musician.

He is an original member of the group 4EY The Future, and in 2019 released his music video titled “Wanna Be Your Man.”

Nam Vo

Nam Vo is another rookie to look out for. He appeared on Ultimate BeastMaster. Alongside reality, he’s also a fashion and fitness model, as well as an actor.

We can’t wait to see how Nam stacks up against the rest of the Challengers.

Natalie Anderson

We cannot wait to see Natalie Anderson compete on The Challenge, and lets just say the woman is a true competitor.

She was a contestant on Survivor and The Amazing Race. She was the winner of Survivor: Blood vs. Water, and was runner up on Survivor Winners at War.

Olivia “Liv” Jawando

Liv makes her rookie appearance coming from Shipwrecked: Battle of The Islands.

Both Liv and Big T appeared on the same season together. Only time will tell if these two will form an alliance.

Which rookie are you looking forward to seeing on The Challenge: Double Agents? Let us know!
