The Challenge: Why Fessy Can’t Rely On Big Brother Alliance To Win
This time around, it seems like Fessy Shafaat can’t trust his Big Brother alliance to help him win The Challenge: Spies, Lies, and Allies. While Fessy had a clear advantage during The Challenge: Double Agents, cracks are starting to show between former stars from Big Brother. Fessy and Kaycee Clark have a solid bond, but they’re not the only two BB players competing on The Challenge. Due to how close Fessy and Kaycee are, it has led to tension between Big Brother alums and fueled their failed attempt at forming a strong alliance.
Fessy came back with a vengeance after being deemed the villain of The Challenge: Double Agents. He and Kaycee played a shady game to make it to the final run. In the end, however, a knee injury and an eating challenge sent them packing. Many fans felt that it was the karma they deserved after Fessy backstabbed his way to The Challenge finals. Moreover, after their horrible loss, Fessy was accused of gaslighting Kaycee at the reunion and blaming their defeat on her injury. Alas, it was Fessy who refused to complete the eating challenge, which is ultimately what sent them home.
Now, Fessy and Kaycee are back and ready to redeem themselves on Lies, Spies, and Allies. The only issue is that they need a strong alliance to make it to the end. With them being among a group of Big Brother alumni on The Challenge, it only makes sense that they’d come together to win. However, Josh Martinez has turned his back on Fessy due to his history of betraying his allies. While Josh still has some loyalty to his Big Brother family, it’s clear that there is no real trust between Fessy and Josh. Additionally, fellow BB alum and The Challenge season 36 winner Amber Borzotra has expressed her interest in joining that alliance. She could be a major asset considering how well she performed last season.
Amber might also be a stronger competitor than both Fessy and Kaycee since she actually took home the win last season along with Chris “CT” Tamburello. However, Kaycee made it abundantly clear that she and Fessy don’t have much interest in forming an alliance with Amber. Fessy and Kaycee are only working with each other, which is exactly what they did last season. But considering their fate on Double Agents, it’s possible that their alliance on Lies, Spies, and Allies won’t garner Fessy his first win either. With a lack of trust, loyalty, and accountability, this current Big Brother alliance can only go so far.
It’s possible that Kaycee could just be using Fessy to make it further in the game. She is openly dating Nany Gonzalez and the two alums are known for being fierce competitors. Considering Kaycee’s newfound romance, she could have a stronger alliance with Nany than with Fessy, who threw her under the bus last season. As this alliance stands, Fessy’s chances of winning The Challenge: Spies, Lies, and Allies aren’t looking too good.
