After The Challenge Australia 2022 lineup was released showcasing a bevvy of stars, there was one noticeable person missing — Big Brother Australia 2022’s Tully Smyth.

As reported in episode 211 of the So Dramatic! podcast, the controversial star was originally set to appear on the Paramount+ show. However, she was dropped at the eleventh hour, just like Jessika Power.

“Tully was another last-minute casting change,” a source told So Dramatic!. “They dropped her around the same time they dropped Jess. She wasn’t very happy about it. LOL!”

LOL indeed! Especially after she was overheard boasting about her appearance on the show! Awkies!
