Cara Maria Sorbello skipped Tori Deal and Jordan Wiseley’s engagement party

After dating for two years, Tori Deal and Jordan Wiseley returned for The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2 (2019), both winning two eliminations and turning coat to Team UK.

After one Proving Ground performance, Wiseley dropped to one knee and proposed to Deal, who enthusiastically said yes. Throughout the season, the lovebirds butt heads with another couple, Paulie Calafiore and Cara Maria Sorbello, as they attempted to run the house with their alliance, which didn’t include the engaged pair.

Following the proposal, the other cast members threw an engagement party for them. While Calafiore showed up and congratulated the couple, Sorbello memorably opted to stay in her room and read a book.

She felt she didn’t want to be fake, but others thought she should’ve put the game aside to celebrate the two.

Alongside a repost of a fan proposing to his girlfriend, she added, “Contrary to what you saw on TV, I love celebrating engagements. I get all excited and creative when asked to do cameos to help propose or congratulate a new couple.”

The veteran closed her caption, throwing shade at Deal and Wiseley’s separation, writing, “I have a special sense for knowing when it’s the real deal,” seemingly implying the two had a fake relationship.
