The Challenge: Total Madness is already heating up with drama, and all eyes are currently on Jenna Compono and Zach Nichols. Compono met Nichols on a season of the show years ago, and they’ve been on and off ever since. They’re currently engaged and planning a wedding, and Compono has said they’re stronger than they’ve ever been. But a recent occurrence on Total Madness has everyone worried about how Nichols treats Compono.
Compono has been defending her relationship ever since Episode 6 of Total Madness aired. And she recently posted a photo of her and Nichols to her Instagram to prove they’re still going strong — but fans continue to roast her.
‘The Challenge’ stars Jenna Compono and Zach Nichols are engaged
Compono and Nichols’ entire relationship has been on full display for years, and many have begged Compono to dump Nichols once and for all. We’ll never forget when Nichols called Compono “Brooke” during a phone call. And he’s also been accused of cheating on Compono via dating apps. Despite it all, the two decided to spend the rest of their lives with each other.
Nichols proposed to Compono Dec. 21, 2019 — and of course, she said yes. The two took a trip to Rockefeller Center in New York City to see the Christmas lights. And Compono was truly shocked when Nichols got down on one knee.
“We went to see the tree every year since we met and a lot of memories have happened in New York City,” Compono told E! News. “I was so surprised and it was so sincere and sweet. I couldn’t be happier.”
Nichols also told E! News that he always knew “she was the one,” though he was too immature to realize it when they first met. “[I admire] her ability to put everyone else’s needs above her own. She’s patient with me too, very patient. And keeps my life in order,” he said.
She’s had to defend her relationship after Episode 6 of ‘Total Madness’
During Episode 6, Compono had a hard time contacting Nichols, as he refused to pick up the phone. She eventually learned from her friend that Nichols was upset by direct messages Compono received from other men while they were on a break from their relationship. Finally, when Compono and Nichols spoke, Nichols accused Compono of cheating — and he even asked her to leave the show altogether.
Compono was clearly emotionally distraught from Nichols’ behavior. And fans roasted her on social media for staying with someone who treated her poorly. She’s even taken to Twitter to defend herself against upset fans.
“There are no issues here,” Compono wrote. “This fight was months ago in reality and we have moved past it and are happier than ever.”
Fans are roasting her again after a photo Compono posted on May 8
Compono is still getting hate from fans — but she posted another photo of her and Nichols on May 8 to prove everything’s just fine.
“You don’t give up on someone because the situations not ideal. Great relationships aren’t great because they have no problems,” Compono wrote on Instagram. “They’re great because both people care enough about the other person to find a way to make it work.”
Fans are still roasting her relationship, though.
“Make sure he doesn’t check your MySpace messages from 2008,” one fan quipped.
“He’s gotta learn to trust you boo. His insecurity seems off the charts sometimes and he can be very explosive,” another wrote. “Those are red flags to anyone watching.”
“Jenna we all love you, we’re happy you have what you want.. we just wish you wanted better,” yet another wrote.
It looks like Compono and Nichols are in it for the long haul, so we’re hoping Nichols improves his behavior and treats Compono like she deserves to be treated!
