After MTV’s The Challenge Season 37 Episode 14, fans want to know why Ashley Mitchell got deactivated from the game. During the episode, T.J. Lavin told the rest of the cast Ashley would not return to the game after she “broke the rules,” but he didn’t go into detail regarding what occurred.

“Agents, as you’ve seen, Ashley is no longer at headquarters,” the host told the remaining players prior to elimination. “Ashley has broken one of our rules, and because of that, Ashley is no longer able to stay in the game. She has been deactivated. She is no longer able to continue in this game for the rest of the season.”

Spoilers on Reddit suggested a verbal altercation between Ashley and fellow veteran player Josh Martinez is what resulted in the disqualification. Additionally, rookie player Emanuel Neagu posted to his social media explaining a lot went down with Ashley aside from Josh, according to Reddit. Ashley also went live on social media to explain more about the situation, and she confirmed it had to do with Josh. Though she added she didn’t believe production should’ve removed her from the game.

With everything that happened with Ashley Mitchell on The Challenge Season 37, will she come back to the show? MTV hasn’t made any official announcements just yet about Ashley’s future. While some players, like Dee Nguyen, were removed permanently from MTV shows for making racially-charged comments in the past, it’s still unclear exactly what went down with Ashley. But she noted in her live explanation that she didn’t say anything directly derogatory or racist.

“I pretty much flipped out and said some things I shouldn’t have,” Ashley said. “Nothing derogatory, no slurs, nothing racial. I just kind of went in on him.”

It doesn’t sound like Josh agrees with Ashley, though. “Waiting on MTV to give me the green light to say my piece because this is bulls***,” Josh wrote in a now-deleted comment in response to Ashley.
