Some of the cast members entering CBS’ spinoff The Challenge: USA aren’t very familiar with what the MTV show generally consists of or who has been on the competition series.
However, Big Brother winner Xavier Prather isn’t among those individuals, as he recently shared he watched The Challenge back in the day and is a fan of the show.
With that, he also listed off some of his all-time favorite cast members from MTV’s show and a few reality TV stars he’s connected with that may have given him some advice for the spinoff. He also explained why having numbers heading into The Challenge: USA was a tough situation for Big Brother.
Xavier Prather is a fan of The Challenge OGs
The Challenge has aired 37 seasons on MTV, and with that, the show has featured plenty of memorable individuals amongst the various casts of competitors. Some of them are true legends in the game, and Big Brother star Xavier Prather said he’s a fan of several of those OGs.
While speaking with US Weekly about his upcoming appearance in CBS’ The Challenge: USA, Prather indicated that he used to watch the show around the time certain Real World stars transitioned to the competition series. Those stars are now legends in the game.
“I was very familiar with The Challenge. Like I watched back when CT [Tamburello], Leroy [Garrett], Wes [Bergmann]- they were all coming straight from Real World, and then had done the first couple seasons of [the show]. Obviously, when I found out about [the spinoff], I started watching some of the more recent seasons,” he shared.
