‘The Challenge’: 3 Reasons Why ‘Battle of the Exes 3’ Might Be Around the Corner

<p><em><a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/tag/the-challenge”>The Challenge</a></em> frequently incorporates themes including <em>Rivals, Bloodlines</em>, <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/the-challenge-host-tj-lavin-100-hour-final-bit-much.html/”>and <em>Ride or Dies</em>,</a> forcing players to compete with their nemesis, friends, or family members for the grand prize. Both installments of <em>Battle of the Exes </em>(2012) were very popular among the fan base as they guaranteed drama, but the show hasn’t incorporated the former lovers twist since 2015. However, recent seasons seem to hint that a third <em>Exes</em> season is right around the corner.</p>

<p><em>The Challenge </em>champ <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/the-challenge-footage-jordan-tori-engagement-revealed-in-untold.html/”>Jordan Wiseley proposed to Tori Deal</a> during 2019’s <em>War of the Worlds 2</em>, but the engaged couple split in November 2020.</p>

<p>While she claimed she would do an <em>Exes</em> season with him, he initially insisted he wouldn’t compete with her again.</p>

<p>However, Jordan changed his mind and returned to the franchise for season 38’s <em>Ride or Dies</em>, knowing his ex was already in the house competing alongside veteran Devin Walker. After having a heart-to-heart talk shortly after his entrance, the two bumped heads when he tried to move on with rookie Nurys Mateo.</p>

<p>They have since reconciled and are on good terms. Many praised the vulnerability and growth between the couple, who hadn’t spoken since their public breakup a year before filming, proving fans are ready for another season of <em>Exes</em>.</p>

<h2><strong>‘The Challenge: World Championship’ features three pairs of exes</strong></h2>

<p>Besides Jordan and Tori, two other pairs of exes are currently competing in the spinoff <em>World Championship</em>. UK reality TV stars <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/the-challenge-kaz-and-theo-relationship.html/”>Kaz Crossley and Theo Campbell dated</a> for nearly a year before she seemingly suddenly ended their relationship, upsetting him.</p>

<p>After he ranted about their breakup on a radio show, the two came face to face in <em>Celebrity Ex on the Beach</em> (2022). She admitted to ending their relationship to focus on herself and apologized for how it went down, which he appreciated.</p>

<p>They ended the show on good terms but went into <em>World Championship</em> unsure of their relationship. As part of Team UK, the exes must work together. Finally, legends KellyAnne Judd and Wes Bergmann previously dated in 2008 after she filmed season 16’s <em>The Island</em>. They returned a year later as a couple in season 18’s <em>The Ruins</em> (2009) but broke up sometime after the show wrapped.</p>

<p>KellyAnne and Wes both competed in last year’s <em>All Stars 3</em> but appeared to have little to no interaction. However, he had already nominated her for the second elimination in <em>World Championship</em>. Having multiple pairs of former lovers in a season seems to imply that production is testing the waters to see if viewers want a cast filled with exes again.</p>

<h2><strong>‘Battle of the Exes 3’ would be a perfect follow-up to ‘Ride or Dies’</strong></h2>

<p>Factoring in the flagship last season’s trial run with Jordan and Tori and the three pairs of former lovers in the current season of spinoff <em>World Championship</em>, it seems as though a cast forcing exes to compete alongside each other is right around the corner.</p>

<p><em>Ride or Dies</em> included pairs of siblings, friends, and exes. A former couple, Johnny “Bananas” Devenazio and Nany González, came close to securing her first victory, but a breakdown in communication during the finals cost them the win.</p>

‘The Challenge’: Johnny ‘Bananas’ Says His Arguing With Nany Cost Them Season 38 Win </a>
<p>The reason behind their loss is a perfect follow-up for a third <em>Exes</em> season, as the first two installments forced the scorned lovers to put their past behind them and adequately communicate to win.</p>

<p><em>Love Island</em> contestants, such as <em>USA</em> finalist Justine Ndiba, <em>UK </em>champ Kaz, and <em>Ride or Dies</em> finalist Olivia Kaiser, have proven themselves as formidable competitors, and there isn’t a shortage of exes from the popular reality dating series. Additionally, many viewers are already familiar with them. Therefore, they would make great rookie additions to an <em>Exes</em> season.</p>
