‘The Challenge’ Season 35 Spoilers: Are Kailah Casillas and Stephen Bear Dating?
The Challenge star Kailah Casillas has been dating reality star and rapper Michael “Mikey P” Pericoloso for about three years. However, she allegedly cheated on him with popular British Ex on the Beach star Stephen Bear while they were filming The Challenge Season 35.
Are the two continuing their relationship outside of The Challenge house, or was it just a one-time thing?
Kailah Casillas’ history on MTV
After appearing on Real World: Go Big or Go Home, Casillas decided to compete on The Challenge: Invasion of the Champions. She went home relatively early and came back for XXX: Dirty 30, where she almost made it to the finals.
In Vendettas, Casillas finished fourth and then partnered up with her childhood hero, singer Drake Bell, for Champs vs. Stars. She came back again for Final Reckoning but got disqualified on the first episode after getting into a physical altercation with Melissa Reeves, ironically over then-boyfriend, Mikey Pericoloso.
Casillas stopped returning to The Challenge and instead appeared on MTV’s Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club before she was sent home for getting into an argument with Lohan. After taking an almost two-year hiatus, Casillas will return for The Challenge Season 35.
Stephen Bear’s reality television show history
It hasn’t taken him long for the American audience to get to know him as well for his antics and hookups with Georgia Harrison and Laurel Stucky. Bear will return for The Challenge Season 35, his third Challenge back-to-back, where Casillas allegedly falls for his humor and charm.
Kailah Casillas and Stephen Bear dating rumors
Casillas and Bear both returned for The Challenge Season 35 and allegedly hooked up on the show. The contestants have since been eliminated, and Casillas ended her three-year relationship to pursue things with Bear.
On November 22, Bear posted a picture of Casillas on his Instagram story of her wearing his ring, and he placed fire emojis across the photo. He also uploaded a video to his account of the two together, allegedly in the United Kingdom, where he playfully pretends like her tattooed arm belongs to him.
In another video, Bear shows himself hanging out with his family, and Casillas is also there, smiling at the camera. A few hours after the uploads, Casillas’ ex-boyfriend responded to the news on Twitter.
He replied to a fan, writing, “…and for what. Life’s just crazy. I’m going to continue being as good of a person I can be and try to find the good in everyone.” The Challenge star Da’Vonne Rogers also spoke out about her War of the Worlds partner’s new relationship, calling it a “PR stunt.”
MTV fans agree with Rogers and believe the two are only pretending to be in a relationship to appear on the next season of Ex on the Beach or to assure more callbacks for future seasons of The Challenge.
Watch The Challenge: War of the Worlds 2 Wednesday at 9 p.m. EST on MTV.
