‘The Challenge’ Spy Cam: Zach Goes Full Drag And Spoons CJ

“The Challenge: Battle of the Seasons” doesn’t air until September 19, but Remote Control is helping you get an early look at the sheer cray that went down in Turkey via our insider Spy Cam. With former friends and rivals from past seasons of “Real World” teaming up for cash, this cycle is overflowing with romance, cutthroat competition and, of course, drama–and so is the early footage we’re leaking! Check back with the blog right up until the premiere episode for exclusive access to vids showcasing the new batch of players.

It’s here! We’ve finally made it to “The Challenge” premiere day and we are so fully super psyched to see what happens when 7 strangers 32 former “Real World” cast members are forced to live and work together to win big money. “Battle Of The Seasons” has a slew of worthy competitors–some are physically dominant, others are intellectually superior and a few are even masters of manipulation. On this show, the ability to blend in and befriend everyone can also be an asset, especially when it’s up to your housemates to decide your fate in an elimination round. And based on what we’ve seen from our exclusive in-house Spy Cams, we’re pretty certain about one thing: Zach is in it to win it.

Even though this is the San Diego stud’s first “Challenge,” it’s clear that he knows how to work the social aspect of the game. Coming off of a “Real World” where he wasn’t necessarily a house favorite, thanks to his sketchy views on Frank’s sexuality, it seems as if Zach tried to overhaul his image by making some smart decisions in Turkey. First, he buried the hatchet with Frank, and together they buried their junk in some crazy-tight thongs. Zach then came to the defense of Jonna–a member of a different team–during a big house-brawl (cue: swooning). Plus, as we see in the vid below, the football player will dress in drag and spoon another guy if it’ll land him some laughs/goodwill from the rest of the house. Well played, Zach!

+ Think Zach’s attempts to win over the house will work in his favor and keep him around longer in the competition? Check out the clip, share your thoughts and tune in to the premiere of “Battle Of The Seasons” tonight at 10/9c.
