We actually could believe it, considering Mark Long, The Challenge “godfather” who orchestrated All Stars, previously told E! News that he was hoping to stack the cast with throwback surprises—think Teck, Yes, Ruthie and Big Easy—rather than stars, like C.T. or Johnny Bananas, who are still very present.
“The more C.T.s or Bananas we get for the first season, the more it kind of defeats the purpose of what it is,” Long explained, before going on to tease, “Don’t be surprised if you see someone that is more current, like a real real player in season two or three because I think it’s definitely open.”
And after C.T. what gleaned from talking with some of the season one All Stars, he is “open” to transitioning to the spinoff.
