‘The Challenge’: CT Tamburello Thinks Leroy Garrett Isn’t Quitting the Game
MTV’s The Challenge: Double Agents has officially come to a close, and fans are wondering who they’ll see on the next seasons of the show. Leroy Garrett’s said all season long that season 36 is his last, as he’s been playing the game for years. But CT Tamburello suspects Leroy will come back. Here’s what he said.
[Spoiler alert: Spoilers ahead for the end of The Challenge: Double Agents.]
‘The Challenge: Season 37’ cast doesn’t feature Leroy Garrett
Everyone’s eager to know all the details surrounding MTV’s’ The Challenge Season 37, and there are plenty of rumors regarding the cast. So far, it seems the new season will take place in Croatia. And plenty of veteran players are returning for a chance at the huge cash prize.
According to Stop Being Polite, TJ Lavin will return as the beloved host. Other returning players include Amanda Garcia, Aneesa Ferriera, Ashley Mitchell, Big T Fazakerley, Cory Wharton, Devin Walker, Fessy Shafaat, Josh Martinez, Kaycee Clark, Kyle Christie, Nam Vo, Nelson Thomas, and Tori Deal. Season 36 winners CT Tamburello and Amber Borzotra are also on the list.
There are plenty of big names who seemingly aren’t competing on season 37, though. Kam Williams and Leroy dominated in season 36, but they’re both missing from season 37. We may have to wait until the new season begins to see if Kam ends up joining, though.
Leroy Garrett said he’s done with the show after ‘Double Agents’
Fans adore seeing Leroy compete on MTV’s The Challenge. He got his start with Rivals back in 2011, and he’s been on and off the show ever since. While he typically stays true to his alliance and does little backstabbing, he knew Double Agents might be his last opportunity to finally win the big prize money. He managed to use his physical powers and political game to get all the way to the final.
“It’s been a long time, it seems like it blew by fast,” he told E! News of his time on the show. “I have so many good memories of the people I have met, the places I have been and to be a part of the network. It truly has been a blessing to have done it for as long as I have.”
While Leroy didn’t come away with a win on Double Agents, he’s still throwing in the towel. “I am 1,000,000% retiring,” he shared. “I’m not coming back. That is not a bad thing, it’s time for me to start the next chapter in my life and sadly it won’t include The Challenge anymore.”
Is CT on the new ‘Challenge’? He is — and he suspects Leroy will come back to play
CT has been playing MTV’s The Challenge for even longer than Leroy has. Now that he’s 40, he’s talked about calling it quits on the game as well, as he’s not the same rambunctious 20-year-old he once was. However, after his Double Agents win, it seems he might stick around. CT proves he’s still a force to be reckoned with, as he continues to win against the younger crowd.
“I have higher win percentage with the Dad Bod,” CT shared with People.
CT talked to People about Leroy leaving, too — and he suspects the Challenge veteran will come back. “I don’t think he should retire,” he said. “He’s done a lot in a row. I know from personal experience. You come back and it’s good for you. It’s good for your mental health. It really is. I wouldn’t be surprised if a couple of years from now … it’s such a part of our lives — and you miss it. We’ve built this whole family and we love to torture ourselves.”
While Leroy may not want to come back to the typical Challenge house, there’s always All Stars. We’ll have to wait and see if we see him again in the future.
