Exclusive Details on the Upcoming Season of ‘The Challenge: Bloodlines’– Meet the Cast!

The Challenge

The next season of MTV’s The Challenge is on its way—and this season’s theme will be like none before it! The Ashley can confirm that the cast left the country on their way to film next season’s ‘The Challenge: Bloodlines!’

In what will likely be a rip-off of the Survivor “Blood vs. Water” season, ‘Challenge’ participants will bring a family member with them to compete. It is not yet known whether the family members will compete as a duo, or if they will compete against each other.

The Ashley’s source tells her that Switzerland may be the location of this ‘Challenge;’ however the source was unable to confirm that detail.

Calls for casting starting going out in March, the source tells The Ashley, and many regular and long-lost cast members were contacted. However, many of them were not cast because they weren’t able to find a suitable “bloodline” to bring along with them. (The “bloodlines” had to go through the same casting process that the ‘Real World’ folks do—applications, Skype interviews, tests, etc.)

Jemmye and Knight were a favorite ‘Challenge’ couple.

It’s been about six months since Ryan Knight, star of MTV’s The Challenge, passed away from an accidental drug overdose, but his MTV cast mates, particularly his ex-girlfriend, Jemmye Carroll, are still struggling with the loss.

Jemmye, who was Knight’s partner on the show’s most-recent “Battle of the Exes II” season, recently penned an essay for Thought Catalog in which she reveals her heartbreak over the loss of Knight, and explains what was happening during the days leading up to his death. His last tweet, which said, “You used to mean a lot,” seemed to be aimed at Jemmye, something she confirmed in her Thought Catalog essay.

“Hours before you died you tweeted and I will never be able to get over your last words because they were directed to me,” Jemmye wrote. “ You died mad at me.

“I forever have to live with the thought that you left this world upset at me.”

A Real World: DC star is asking the show’s fans to help her get treatment for a debilitating illness.

Ashley Lindley, who starred on the show’s 23rd season in 2009, is suffering from some sort of bacterial infection in her gastrointestinal tract, which has left her bedridden for months and, in her words, “stripped me of my independence and ability to fully care for myself.”

The former reality star, who has never appeared on The Challenge, created a GoFundMe page a few months back in hopes of getting donations from fans who want to help her pay for an expensive medical procedure that may help her. While she has been getting generous donations from fans, unfortunately, her health has not improved.
