Viewers of The Challenge have seen Jordan Wiseley involved in many showmances and reality TV relationships that continued off the show. Now, it appears he may be in another.

The 31-year-old was previously engaged to fellow Challenge cast member Tori Deal, who originally appeared on MTV’s dating show, Are You The One? 4.

However, things didn’t work out, and Jordan and Tori both moved on, with a bit of messiness along the way, including cheating rumors that Tori addressed.

Jordan’s had other hookups related to The Challenge, including time spent with champions Sarah Rice and Laurel Stucky. There was also his aired scene on spinoff The Challenge: All Stars 3 featuring his close friend and former Real World castmate Nia Moore.

Fast forward to the present day, and Jordan may be dating a Love Island star with connections to another castmate from The Challenge.

This report will contain minor spoilers regarding cast members recently involved in filming for MTV’s The Challenge Season 38.

Jordan reveals he’s potentially dating Love Islander

Taking to his Instagram on Sunday, Jordan Wiseley may have surprised fans as he shared a photo featuring some serious displays of affection with a new woman.

He and the mystery woman are enjoying a kiss in several playful pics at what appears to be a lounge or restaurant with some comfy chairs.

Jordan added Los Angeles, California, as the location for his carousel post.

All he wrote in his IG caption was “*future ex-wife,” and he tagged the mystery woman in his photo series.

Jordan’s tag indicates that he’s locking lips and having fun with Elly Steffen, a cast member from Love Island Season 3. Based on details from a Love Island Wiki profile page, Elly is a 23-year-old Neuroscience Graduate and model originally from Chicago, Illinois.

Her appearance during the Love Island season was brief, as Elly entered on Day 32 and was with K-Ci Maultsby briefly. However, she got dumped on Day 34, which was a bit before the dating show’s final took place.

Along with Jordan’s post above, Elly shared a photo on her Instagram Story suggesting the two are potentially dating.

“You put the yee to my haw,” Elly wrote on the slide along with a cowboy emoji and tags for Jordan and Hollywood, California.

Love Islander has Challenge connections

Season 3 of Love Island featured a few other individuals that recently popped up on CBS’ The Challenge: USA spinoff. They include Shannon St. Clair, Javonny Vega, Cinco Holland, and Cashay Proudfoot.

While Jordan wasn’t part of that show and may not have met any of them, one of his recent castmates from MTV’s The Challenge was part of Love Island 3.

Based on online spoilers for Season 38 of the competition series, Jordan is amongst the cast members for the upcoming MTV Challenge season.

One of the upcoming Challenge season’s new rookies is Olivia Kaiser, who appeared on Love Island Season 3 with Elly Steffen.

Late Saturday evening in California, Olivia shared an Instagram Story slide showing her and Elly hanging out this weekend.

Elly arrived at the Love Island villa just ahead of the final but got dumped on Day 34. Olivia was there until the final on Day 40, and was one of the season’s winners, along with Korey Gandy.

Whether or not Jordan and Elly are officially dating right now is unconfirmed. At the moment, it’s all speculation, but the photo evidence on Jordan’s Instagram post seems pretty clear that he and Elly were enjoying one another’s company in California.

The Challenge Season 38 is TBA for MTV. The Challenge: All Stars 3 episodes are available on Paramount Plus.
