‘The Challenge’: Wes Bergmann Wants a Spin-Off for Jordan Wiseley and Tori Deal’s Wedding
The Challenge is coming back with Season 35, Total Madness, and fans can’t wait to see how the veteran players fair with the new game. So far, the trailers make it look like this season is going to be the toughest yet. But many have faith that returning champ Jordan Wiseley and his fiancée, Tori Deal, will make it all the way to the end once again.
Deal and Wiseley might be the most solid couple to ever meet on the show, though we know they aren’t the first. And notable Challenge vet Wes Bergmann has even chimed in and suggested the two should get their own spin-off show just for the wedding. Here’s what he commented on Instagram.
Jordan Wiseley and Tori Deal fell for each other on ‘Dirty XXX’
Both Wiseley and Deal had some on-screen romances prior to meeting each other, but their chemistry during Dirty XXX was undeniable. Deal started the season with her boyfriend, Derrick Henry. But Henry went home early, leaving Deal on her own in the Challenge house to fend for herself. And since Deal was still getting the hang of the game, she found comfort in Wiseley’s guidance.
Wiseley liked Deal from the beginning, and he even expressed that he hoped to run a final with her, as she was a tough competitor who showed a lot of physical and mental prowess. By the end of Dirty XXX, the two did indeed make it, and they both won prize money. And it was after the season ended that Deal decided she was finished with her romance with Henry and wanted to pursue a relationship with Wiseley.
“I knew I loved him when we were flying to the Dirty XXX final,” Deal told MTV News. “It was funny because we were watching Beauty and the Beast on the plane with the song [that goes], ‘There must be something I hadn’t seen before.’ And I was thinking, ‘This is so my life with him right now.'”
Their on-screen engagement wasn’t well-received from everyone
Not only are Deal and Wiseley together, but they’re officially engaged. During War of the Worlds 2, the couple took a stance against the team they were originally aligned with — the U.S. — and decided to switch to the U.K. side due to Cara Maria Sorbello and Paulie Calafiore’s reign. Ultimately, they made the right call. But Sorbello was certainly not impressed with Wiseley getting down on one knee after winning an elimination.
“I heard she was calling it fake. I would never discredit someone else’s relationship or love, and I would celebrate them no matter what,” Deal told MTV News of Sorbello’s reaction.
Wiseley, who notoriously doesn’t get along with Sorbello, also shared his thoughts. “There was one person who did not come up and congratulate us, and that was Cara. The fact that you can’t let love in and win for a second? I think it speaks a lot to her heart and soul.”
Wes Bergmann thinks the couple should have a wedding spin-off
So, will we see Wiseley and Deal’s wedding play out on-screen? We’re hoping so, as fans would certainly love to see it. And we know Chris Tamburello (CT) had a special for his wedding, so anything’s possible.
The Challenge‘s official Instagram posted a video of Wiseley and Deal talking about the wedding, too.
“There’s going to be a bunch of people from The Challenge invited to the wedding,” Deal told the camera. “We heard Wes is ordained, so we’d love it if he married us.” And Deal went on to mention other competitors, like Zach Nichols and Kailah Casillas, who will also be invited.
Wes Bergmann, an infamous and polarizing competitor, commented on the video, too. “I am ordained. This would be the most epic spinoff,” he wrote.
It sounds like Deal and Wiseley have wedding planning totally under control. We’re hoping we hear even more about it when Total Madness premieres on April 1.
