‘The Challenge’ Star Kayleigh Morris Says She Will Return to the Show
Ex on the Beach star and Big Brother 18 houseguest Kayleigh Morris competed in three seasons of The Challenge before taking a break. Due to her social game and ability to bring drama, some fans want the UK native to return to the MTV competitive reality series. She recently addressed the possibility of her coming back to the show in an Instagram comment.
Kayleigh Morris originally appeared on ‘Ex on the Beach’ and ‘Big Brother’
In 2015, London-based clothing concession manager Kayleigh Morris appeared in the second series of UK reality dating show, Ex on the Beach, as a single alongside future Challengers Rogan O’Connor and Melissa Reeves.
She returned a year later for the fifth series with “unfinished business,” and her exes appeared over the course of the season. While the show aired, Morris and Ex on the Beach 5 co-star Stephen Bear competed on Big Brother 18.
During her first few days in the house, she got into explosive arguments with a couple of her housemates, resulting in her early nomination for eviction.
Although Morris survived, she was ejected from the game following a heated exchange with Ex on the Beach co-star Chanelle McCleary where she reportedly made threats of violence.
Morris competed on ‘The Challenge’ for three seasons
Shortly following her BB appearance, the 32-year-old began competing on the US-based reality competition series, The Challenge. She made her debut in the 31st season, Vendettas, alongside Reeves, her rival from Ex on the Beach.
Although they began to prove themselves as contenders, Morris quit after a few castmates threw her luggage everywhere. She returned for the next season, Final Reckoning, partnered with Kailah Casillas.
However, her teammate got into a physical altercation with Reeves, leaving her paired with Kam Williams. They performed well together, winning their way back into the house before getting eliminated for good in the same episode.
Morris had her best performance to date in War of the Worlds 2 but barely failed to make the finals. Shortly afterward, Morris filmed another series of Ex on the Beach with The Challenge ex Nelson Thomas. However, the season never aired following the death by suicide of a cast member.
She says she will return to the competitive series
The 32-year-old has had a decent showing throughout her three-season career as she’s won four daily missions and three eliminations with one loss.
She also has a good social game and can bring the drama viewers crave. Therefore, fans have wanted the UK native to return to the competition series after missing the last two seasons.
In a Mar. 2021 Instagram comment, a viewer asked Morris if she had planned on coming back for another shot at the grand prize. The London native answered, “I will soon!”
While a few are excited for her to return, others don’t care for her following a situation where she seemingly “outed” castmate Natalie Negrotti. Additionally, her ex Nelson Thomas is a recurring face on the show, and she’s currently in another relationship.
The Challenge 36 airs Wednesdays at 8/7 Central on MTV.
