Jisela Delgado and Alton Williams met during ‘The Challenge: All-Stars’

In 2006, Jisela Delgado and Alton Williams both competed on The Challenge: The Gauntlet 2 together.

However, they were on different teams and didn’t interact that much until they returned 15 years later for All-Stars.

The two quickly hit it off and developed a romantic connection highlighted in the fifth episode. While Alton refused to answer if he slept with Jisela, the cameras indicate the couple hooked up one night after partying.

They continued hanging out throughout the series and seemingly had a working relationship until her exit at the beginning of the finals. 

Rumors circulated that Alton was married

Following the episode airing his elimination, Syrus Yarbough appeared on co-star Derrick Kosinksi’s podcast, Challenge Mania, where he claimed Alton entered the house as a married man. Derrick initially passed it off as a “complicated misunderstanding,” but later noted Alton did seem to have a serious relationship back home.

However, Derrick claimed they were having problems. He also pointed out he heard Alton refer to a supposed partner as “wife” toward the beginning of the competition before claiming he never married.

The Gauntlet 2 winner hasn’t yet addressed his marital status, but Jisela has responded to the rumors a couple of times.

After her elimination aired, the four-time competitor broadcasted live on Instagram, where she insisted Alton wasn’t married and not living with another woman. She also appeared on the official after-show and noted the two “talk all the time.” However, the Florida native didn’t clarify if they had begun dating.

At the reunion, Jisela gave an update on their situation, explaining they were “friends” during the season and have continued a friendship since filming wrapped. However, the veteran noted they live on opposite sides of the country and doesn’t think Alton can currently properly “court” her.

Therefore, she said they planned on staying friends. When asked about the marriage rumors, Jisela claimed he told her he didn’t have a wife or a romantic relationship with the mother of his child. However, KellyAnne Judd noted Alton frequently spoke about her as if they were married.

Regardless, Jisela said she would date the Gauntlet 2 champ if their circumstances allowed. Following the airing of the reunion episode, the four-time competitor tweeted a picture of the two kissing, captioning it “with love” and two emojis implying he’s her king and she’s his queen.

Jisela closed with, “Alton said this should shut those rumors up.” It’s unclear if the photo indicates the couple has begun dating or posted the picture to prove he isn’t married. However, many followers perceived the post as making their relationship social media official. The Challenge: All-Stars airs on Paramount+.
