MTV’s “The Challenge” is currently in pre-production for Season 39 and the show is set to begin filming in June!!
One star fans wanted to see return was Horacio Gutiérrez.
Horacio Gutiérrez Jr. was a contestant from Exatlón Estados Unidos 5. He was a finalist on Season 38 of “Ride or Dies”, his Rookie season. The Star had a great chance at winning the whole season if his partner Olivia wasn’t hurt.
Fans were expecting to see him return for the 39th season after the sad ending but Horacio has other plans.
He allegedly declined to compete in a soccer tournament this summer!
Are you sad about the news? Who would you like to see in his place?
