“The Challenge” Star Katelyn Talks Being Blacklisted From The Show

The challenge Katelyn

MTV’s “The Challenge” Star Katelynn Cusanelli was just under the radar and one of Johnny Bananas tweets put her back into the algorithm!

The “Real World” & “The Challenge” Star quickly called Johnny out on Twitter and shortly after the tweet, she was on a podcast.

Katelyn joined the Mike Lewis podcast to talk about being blacklisted from the show and more.

Mike tweeted:

“🚨 NEW POD🚨 Katelyn joins me to talk about her time on RW Brooklyn, Fresh Meat 2 fall, why she is blacklisted from the Challenge, and much more!”

Fans loved the interview:

“What a great interview. Thank you for this. Katelynn is an such a great person. Definitely someone that I would love as a friend. She is so honest and funny. Thank you Katelynn ✌️” – Sarah

“I will say most interesting part of this are the pay structures- no one will ever actually go into detail what they are like” – Amanda

A must watch! Maybe Katelyn can return and challenge Johnny in the future!?
