MTV’s The Challenge Season 37 brought together 17 international players with 17 U.S. players. The veterans stuck together early on with their all-vet alliance, taking out a number of rookie players. But a few rookie players, like Emy Alupei, managed to still prove themselves as major threats in the game. Unfortunately, it seems Emy’s alliance with CT Tamburello may have made her an enemy in the eyes of Big T Fazakerley. Here’s what Devin Walker claimed MTV edited out of the show.

Is Big T Fazakerley friends with CT Tamburello? The competitors have history

Big T Fazakerley and CT Tamburello have a sordid history. In MTV’s The Challenge Season 36, Double Agents, Big T and CT teamed up for a number of challenges — and they developed a close friendship. Unfortunately, their friendship fell apart when CT enthusiastically chose to get rid of Big T as his partner and partner up with Kam Williams instead. The public ordeal hurt Big T’s feelings, and their friendship was never the same.

So, is Big T friends with CT today? While the two seemed amicable in The Challenge Season 37, they didn’t seem nearly as close as they once were. And Big T spoke about her relationship with CT on Instagram.

“I look for consistency in my friendships/interactions with people,” Big T told a fan on Instagram regarding CT. “Without consistency, people can get upset because they don’t know where they stand. I don’t believe there is any need to act like someone’s biggest cheerleader when, in actuality, you’re not.”

Devin Walker said Big T remixed one of Emy Alupei’s songs with ‘insults’ due to Emy’s admiration of CT

Big T appears to get along with most members of the house — but it seems she didn’t get along with Emy in The Challenge Season 37. Emy has a very close relationship with CT in Spies, Lies, and Allies. She calls him “Uncle CT,” and he continues to root for her in daily challenges and eliminations. According to Devin Walker, this rubbed Big T the wrong way.

“Not caught on camera — the Big T and Emy fight,” Devin said to Josh Martinez during The Challenge aftermath show. “When Big T started remixing ‘Alien’ with just insults.” Devin then explained he believed the source of the conflict was “Emy’s attachment to CT.”

“For whatever reason, it erupted into a remix of ‘Alien’ with only insults,” Devin added.

“I’ve never seen Big T lose her s*** like that,” Josh added.
