The Challenge Australia is already becoming the hottest reality TV series — and it hasn’t even aired! And now, EIGHT more stars have been revealed to be taking part.

Previously, So Dramatic! revealed that Ciarran Stott, Cyrell Paule, Grant Crapp, David Subritzky, Brooke Jowett, Jessica Brody and Tully Smyth would all be participating in the sports-cross-reality series which pits your fave (and not-so-fave) TV celebs against one another.

Now, as reported in episode 206 of the So Dramatic! podcast, we can reveal a bevvy of new stars who are set to compete.

The Bachelor franchise’s Mary Viturino, Megan Marx, Kiki Morris and Renee Barrett are set to appear, as is Big Brother’s Tim Dormer.

Serial reality star Jack Vidgen is taking part, plus influencer Suzan Mutesi.

And, perhaps the most interesting and highly anticipated former duo slated to compete: The Bachelorette 2021 exes, Brooke Blurton and Darvid Garayeli.

While Darvid has denied involvement in the series, an on-screen reunion is bound to be the talk of the town.

So far, we have 18 names and what a bloody gewd cast it is!

Ciarran Stott Will be Competing Against FOUR Exes

For most of us, being anywhere near an ex is an absolute NO. However, for bad boi Ciarran, he will be facing off against FOUR former flames, including Kiki, Renee, Tully and Jessica.

Other Reality Stars and Celebs Who May Be on The Challenge

While the stars flew out on July 31 to begin filming, GamerVev has shared more names of stars who could be part of the show.

These include Too Hot to Handle’s Harry Jowsey, Luke Toki, Chrissie Zaremba, Sam Gash and Mark Wales from Australian Survivor, Tilly Whitfield from Big Brother (although she has confirmed she won’t be competing) and Courtney Dober from The Bachelor franchise.

The Bachelor’s Britt Hockley, Big Brother’s Marley Biyendolo and swimmer Emily Seebohm are also set to appear with the Daily Mail snapping pics of them at the airport.

Who Was Approached to Appear on The Challenge But Turned It Down?

According to our sources, Married at First Sight’s Liam Cooper and Love Island’s Erin Barnett were also asked but turned it down.

We’ve also been told that Locky Gilbert was approached. However, it was for the US series and not the Australian version.

“They offered him big money but he still wasn’t keen,” an insider spilled to So Dramatic!. “So, they assumed he didn’t want to do the local version.”

So Dramatic!’s Reality Star Predictions for The Challenge Australia

While there’s already a YUGE list of names, we have a feeling that The Bachelorette’s Konrad Bien-Stephen, The Bachelorette’s Elly Miles and Ali Oetjen and Bachelor franchise alum Tenille Favios could also appear in the series.
