The Challenge: Ride or Dies features familiar faces and new competitors coming to the playing field in what some consider America’s fifth major sport.
Former champions Johnny Bananas, Laurel Stucky, Jordan Wiseley, and Veronica Portillo will be among the returning veteran stars.
Only one of last season’s rookies will return to compete, as Survivor USA star Michele Fitzgerald attempts to get further in the game than her first attempt.
Meanwhile, a new group of rookies will be hungry to make names for themselves in The Challenge history books, including Ravyn Rochelle.
She may not necessarily have the reality TV background that others do, but she appears to be a fierce competitor who manifested becoming part of the show into her reality. Now she’ll try to make Challenge champion part of that reality.
Here are more details about Ravyn, including her background, teammate situation, and where to follow her on social media.
Who is Ravyn Rochelle on The Challenge: Ride or Dies?
Ravyn is a 25-year-old social media influencer and actress from Los Angeles, California. Based on her IMDB listing, she’s appeared in several movies or series.
She was in the 2021 TV series Be Someone and Good Intentions and this year’s Seal of Desire. As of this writing, she also has several projects in post-production, filming, or in pre-production, including Deadly Games and Fanged.
Ravyn makes her MTV debut as a rookie on The Challenge: Ride or Dies season and has no previous reality TV experience. However, her teammate will bring a bit of that to the game.
The Ride or Dies theme features teams of one man and a woman who share a strong bond. In Ravyn’s case, she’ll team up with a friend and fellow rookie Johnny Middlebrooks, who originally appeared on Love Island USA.
As of this report, there hadn’t been a promotional video featuring Ravyn and Johnny, although The Challenge regularly releases clips featuring the rookies on social media.
