The Challenge: USA spinoff is now a few episodes old, and there’s already a lot of drama between the cast, thanks in large part to the backstory of their previous shows.
Two shows collided in a confrontation in early July when Episode 2 aired, when “Survivor” star Shan Smith called out “Big Brother” alum Alyssa Lopez. It all started when Alyssa retweeted a clip from the episode in which Shan informed her Survivor allies about Tiffany Mitchell and said she didn’t trust her.
Alyssa added the question to her retweet, “Wait Shan I thought your story was that I said that?” along with the hashtag “busted.” One of the storylines in the earlier episodes was that Alyssa wanted revenge on Xavier Prather from her “Big Brother” season because she felt betrayed by him. As Big Brother fans know, Xavier and others on Big Brother 23 were part of the Cookout Alliance, one of the most dominant alliances in the show’s history, formed with the goal of having the show’s first black winner .

Shan didn’t hesitate to smack Alyssa back, tweeting, “WAIT NOT ALYSSA @lysslopezz walks around the cookout year-round and benefits from being close to the culture – she’s committed and professing to understand the movement and its importance while enjoying the planning REVENGE all the time,” along with the trash can emoji and a hashtag that reads “fake allies.”
Shan continued, tweeting, “You met ‘Becky’, you met ‘Karen’ In the perks of proximity, Group 2 said the entire time while seeking their own self-improvement and opportunity for revenge.
Shan’s Twitter account has since been deleted, but screenshots are available courtesy of Instagram of The Challenge Shade Room.
On Episode 4 of The Challenge: USA, Alyssa and her teammate for the week, Kyland Young, decided to go head-to-head against Xavier and Shan, who were dating that week. While Alyssa and Kyland revealed that their vote was because they didn’t trust Shan, Alyssa made it clear through multiple confessions and conversations that she wanted to get even with Xavier for his betrayal of “Big Brother.”
Xavier and Shan took on David Alexander and Justine Ndiba, who lost this week’s challenge and ended up losing and eliminated from the show. After that, it was clear from their final talks that both Xavier and Shan were unhappy with Alyssa, as Shan said, “Alyssa may be Megamind, but she’s not the sharpest pencil in the box. I just don’t know what she was thinking, it just doesn’t make sense to me.”
Xavier said: “I played ‘Big Brother’ season 23 and I betrayed everyone and they’re all petty little b****es about it. Therefore Tyson [Apostol] and the rest of his ‘Survivor’ f***** juggernauts will take you all down because you all have no support now. I’m still rich, you’re all broke and you’re all stupid.”
