‘The Challenge’: Ruthie Alcaide Claims Aneesa Ferreira ‘Threatened’ to ‘Ruin’ Her in Interviews
Former rivals Aneesa Ferreira and Ruthie Alcaide returned for The Challenge: All-Stars, where they butt heads again. The two reignited their beef several months after filming in an Instagram comment section, where Ruthie accused Aneesa of “threatening” her and “aggressively following” her around the house.
Aneesa Ferreira and Ruthie Alcaide butt heads during ‘The Challenge: All Stars’
The Challenge legends Aneesa Ferreira and Ruthie Alcaide returned for spinoff All-Stars, marking the first time the two competed together since 2009’s The Duel 2.
During that season, Ruthie felt Aneesa aligned with a group that ostracized and targeted her. Additionally, Aneesa ended up going against Ruthie to serve her best interests, admitting she’d always look out for herself first in a confessional.
Before the two returned for the spinoff, they revealed they weren’t happy to see each other in the house during pre-season interviews due to their shaky past.
In episode 3 of All-Stars, their tension boiled over as Aneesa spoke about Ruthie outside to other cast members, referring to the Real World: Hawaii star as “a mess” and “paranoid.”
Ruthie apparently overhead and walked outside, where she angrily confronted Aneesa. However, the 14-season veteran shrugged it off as a “projection” and ignored her co-star.
Ruthie claims Aneesa’ aggressively followed’ her around the house
During the after-show following the episode, Aneesa claimed the heated exchange began because Ruthie got paranoid after she gave her a “look.”
Ruthie later acknowledged the interaction on her Instagram Story answering fans’ questions. One viewer asked if the Real World star apologized.
While Ruthie didn’t specifically answer, she said the two talked it over at the hotel following filming. Another person wondered if they made up, and she noted they’re “sisters off and on” but still doesn’t “trust” her.
She explained the other co-stars don’t know what happened between her and Aneesa in the past and admitted it should’ve stayed behind them. However, the two went at it again a month later in an Instagram comment section.
Replying to a clip showing Yes Duffy’s confessional, Ruthie told him he didn’t understand the backstory of their falling out. Aneesa responded, claiming the Real World: Hawaii star didn’t correctly recall the night in question and that she “knows my truth.”
In response, Ruthie posted a lengthy comment, writing Aneesa “aggressively followed” her several times around the house and accused the reality star of “threatening” to “ruin me in interviews.”
Aneesa then deleted her initial response and replied to “now this is just silly” to the most recent comment.
Beth Stolarczyk joined in the conversation
Co-star Jisela Delgado, who also fell out with the 14-season veteran during All-Stars, backed Ruthie, responding to her comment, “Tell your truth. Don’t let anyone gaslight you.”
A fan page reposted screenshots of the exchange, and Beth Stolarczyk also voiced support for the Hawaii alum. She noted she’s “team Ruthie” and claimed Aneesa tried to “silence” her.
Beth encouraged the reality star to “keep speaking your truth” and said the veteran has “done many things to hurt other people.” Aneesa hasn’t responded to Jisela and Beth’s comments as of yet.
