With The Challenge: Ride or Dies, viewers will see returning veterans and a new group of rookies competing to win TJ Lavin’s final.
Among those newcomers will be Olivia Kaiser, making her debut on The Challenge after appearing on another popular reality TV show.
Olivia was also nearly part of another version of The Challenge, serving as an alternate cast member, but ultimately didn’t participate.
However, she gets a more significant opportunity as she’ll appear in MTV’s flagship show instead, with more money up for grabs.
She’ll have to navigate the difficult aspects of the competition show, including daily challenges, potential eliminations, and the game’s politics. However, she’ll have a teammate working with her.
Here are more details about Olivia’s background and where to follow her on Instagram or other social media.
Who is Olivia Kaiser on The Challenge: Ride or Dies?
Olivia is a 30-year-old business owner originally from Anchorage, Alaska. She’s a licensed cosmetologist in Scottsdale, Arizona, offering various beauty services through her business. Her website details those beauty services, including microblading, lip blush touch-ups, and other makeup assistance.
She initially appeared on CBS’ Love Island USA 3 and became one of the season’s winners, alongside Korey Gandy. They remained a couple once their season finished, but ultimately their relationship didn’t last. According to US Weekly, they split up in November 2021.
Following her time on Love Island USA 3, viewers nearly saw Olivia on CBS’ The Challenge: USA spinoff show. However, she was on-location as an alternate for the show and didn’t make the final cast.
Instead, she’ll debut on MTV’s The Challenge Season 38, which is called Ride or Dies and features a unique theme. Each cast member has a partner with whom they have strong ties, whether a family member, boyfriend, husband, or close friend.
Olivia among rookies competing in Season 38
Olivia’s teammate is her friend, fellow rookie Horacio Gutierrez. As newcomers to the show, they will be at a disadvantage from the start due to veterans typically trying to eliminate all the rookies.
However, Olivia may have gained advice for the show from other Love Island stars who competed in versions of The Challenge. Season 37 of MTV’s show featured Love Islanders Jeremiah White and Lauren Coogan.
Castmates from Olivia’s Love Island season included Cashay Proudfoot, Shannon St. Claire, Javonny Vega, and Cinco Holland, all of whom appeared in The Challenge: USA spinoff on CBS.
Also, fellow Love Island star Johnny Middlebrooks will appear in The Challenge: Ride or Dies cast. Johnny and his teammate could give Olivia a pair of allies in the game.
