Teammates Dee Nguyen and Rogan O’Connor hooked up last season. While Dee admittedly fell for Rogan, the guest Chippendales performer revealed he only wanted to have fun. During The Challenge 35: Total Madness, the two haven’t completely let go of each other, and Dee admitted she has always been, and currently is, in love with Rogan.

Dee Nguyen and Rogan O’Connor hooked up on ‘The Challenge 34’

Team UK members Dee Nguyen and Rogan O’Connor developed a sexual relationship during War of the Worlds 2. While Dee admittedly “fell in love with a stripper,” Rogan only wanted to have a good time in the house.

Toward the end of the season, the guest Chippendales performer attempted to throw her into elimination because he thought he would have to “carry her through the finals.”

However, the Australian-native performed well, and their four-person team won the season, earning $250,000 each. At the reunion, Rogan revealed he recently came out of a nearly four-year relationship before appearing on the series, and only wanted to have fun with Dee.

The revelation hurt the Geordie Shore star, and she became emotional as she feels she’s “loyal to a fault.” According to Dee, the two talked after the reunion and were on friendly terms heading into The Challenge 35: Total Madness.

Dee Nguyen and Rogan O’Connor made each other jealous on ‘The Challenge 35’

The Australian-native wanted her ex back from the start as she admitted she still had unresolved feelings for him. Therefore, she chose the bed right above Rogan, much to his dismay. However, it didn’t stop him from flirting with rookie Jennifer Lee.

After the house voted for the prospect to prove herself in elimination, she and Dee got into a heated argument as she felt the Australian-native didn’t like her.

The rookie also insisted she didn’t have romantic feelings for Rogan and accused Dee of spying on her in her sleep. Even though the Geordie Shore star denied it, night camera footage showed Dee peeking out from her koala mask in the middle of the night.

While Dee was a part of the Tribunal and could have sent Jenn home herself, she allowed the strongest girl in the house, Jenny West, to eliminate the rookie single-handedly.

After the episode aired, Rogan defended Dee’s choice not to compete as he explained they didn’t know the twist beforehand, so she didn’t wear the proper attire.

Upset that Rogan gave Jenn the time of day, Dee shared a “cheeky kiss” with prospect Jay Starrett as the house partied at a local bar. The Ex on the Beach UK star became jealous and admitted to his ex that her actions hurt her.

Additionally, Jay shocked the house, and the viewers, by eliminating reigning champ and legend, C.T. Tamburello. Upset that the rookie kissed his girl and sent his number one ally in the house packing, Rogan requested an elimination matchup against the Survivor star.

The majority voted in the rookie for the third time, and the Tribunal honored Rogan’s wishes. In Purgatory, the two played a fire version of the classic “Balls In,” and the former rugby player immediately slammed an undersized Jay to the ground. Dee later admitted she felt bad about the situation because of the kiss she shared with the rookie to make Rogan jealous.

After the episode aired, Dee tweeted, “Spoiler alert: I am in love with Rogan and always have been.” She continued, “We may be with child we may not be.”

The Geordie Shore star also pinned the tweet to the top of her page before unpinning it the next day. Many believe Dee is joking or thinks the two are attempting to get cast on Ex on the Beach.

Another follower noted the Australian-native is acting differently this season and seemingly only cares about “chasing Rogan” around the house. The Challenge 35: Total Madness airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EST on MTV.
