Can someone please check on Jessika Power because another MAFS star has taken her place after she got fired from The Challenge Australia and I imagine one eye is furiously twitching right now.
Daily Mail Australia revealed that ex-MAFS bride Sarah Roza was spotted boarding an international flight from Melbourne to Buenos Aires, Argentina, where the reality show is being filmed.
It comes after Jessika announced she’d no longer be taking part in the new show.
When reports of Jessika quitting the show started doing the rounds, Jessika shared a Daily Mail Australia article on her Instagram Story and claimed it wasn’t true.
“I had my contracts signed, bags packed, everything ready and received a message from my manager, stating the American executives had made the creative decision to not include me in the show despite the fact that I’m good talent,” she said, according to So Dramatic!.
“I was so excited to do the show and it was only the day before that I was having Skype interviews with the director and speaking about opening outfits, filming locations and leave dates.
“I completed my medical background check and had my leave date for the show. Everything had come back clear and everyone was happy but sometimes in TV these things happen and that’s OK because it’s always an honour to be considered, let alone film a new television show.”
Speaking to So Dramatic!, Jessika said: “I have zero idea why they pulled me from the show. It was literally a last minute creative decision.”
Jessika said she was one of the first to be cast back in January.
“I have no idea the real reason,” she concluded.
The most puzzling aspect of this is that Jessika was set to reunite with her MAFS rival Cyrell Paule which would’ve been hella spicy, so why would they pull the plug on Jess at the last minute?
Very, very odd.
The competition show is basically a cross between Survivor and Ninja Warrior that puts ex reality stars through gruelling challenges.
It pits its contestants against each other, having them take part in wild challenges with the hopes of winning $1 million.
Rumoured cast members include The Bachelor franchise’s Ciarran Stott, Jessica Brody, Mary Viturino, Megan Marx, Kiki Morris and Renee Barrett.
There’s also Love Island Australia bloke Grant Crapp, Big Brother’s Tully Smyth and Tim Dormer, I’m A Celeb star David Subritsky, and Survivor’s Brooke Jowett and Johnny Eastoe.
It’s bound to be a spicy one!
