Big Brother fans who also enjoy MTV’s The Challenge may be happy to see several familiar faces when Season 35 premieres in April. Those who are unfamiliar can get acquainted with the rookies.
On Wednesday, it was revealed that Big Brother 20’s Bayleigh Dayton, Faysal Shawn ‘Fessy’ Shafaat, Christopher Jordan ‘Swaggy C’ Williams, and Kaycee Clark would be amongst rookie competitors.
So will Asaf Goren, who has a tie to Big Brother.

Faysal Shawn ‘Fessy’ Shafaat is 28 years old. He’s a substitute teacher from Orlando, Florida. He also had a relationship with BB20 star Haleigh Broucher.
Asaf Goren wasn’t on Big Brother 20, but he was part of the hit series Big Brother Israel. Goren also appeared on So You Think You Can Dance. He’ll be amongst the new competitors joining this season of The Challenge.
Along with the rookie competitors, another well known Big Brother alum is part of the MTV show’s cast. Josh Martinez, the Big Brother 19 winner, is back for his third season of The Challenge.
He’s looking to capture another reality TV series win. So is Kaycee Clark.
Who are Kaycee Clark and Bayleigh Dayton?
Bayleigh Dayton is 26 and worked as a flight attendant. She’s from Lee’s Summit, Missouri, originally but currently hails from Atlanta, Georgia.
See her official Instagram here.
Kaycee Clark, 32, is from Tempe, Arizona. She’s an entrepreneur and pro-football player for the San Diego Surge. She stays active on social media, including her Instagram page and YouTube channel (below).
She was also the winner of Big Brother 20, and now she’ll bring her skills to a new competitive series. MTV’s The Challenge includes weekly physical or mental challenges along with eliminations.
There are also alliances and backstabbing along the way. This season is described as a “solo” challenge rather than one involving teams. Ultimately, at least one person leaves with a lot of money for winning The Challenge.
