Like most modern-day reality show feuds, this one may have been squashed with the power of an Instagram like.Tori Deal and Cara Maria Sorbello have been at each other’s throats in the past few seasons of MTV’s ‘The Challenge.’ But recently, it seems like the two have been getting along better, with Sorbello not only liking Deal’s Instagram post but leaving a comment as well. This may not seem like a major olive branch was extended, but knowing the rocky history between these women makes an Instagram like and comment seem like the ultimate reconciliation.
Last season on ‘The Challenge,’ Deal and her boyfriend Jordan Wiseley got engaged after Wiseley won an elimination. Sorbello was the only cast member to not attend their engagement celebration and instead opted to stay in her room and read a book. Even Sorbello’s own boyfriend Paulie Calafiore attended the party without her and made it a point to say that even though the two couples have had a lot of bad blood between them, he is happy for them regardless.
Sorbello often did everything in her power to make sure both Deal and Wiseley ended up at risk for elimination each week and had to fight to stay in the competition. This sometimes meant going against the wishes of her own teammates to nominate each of them for elimination. She also continuously made comments voicing her opinion about how she thought Wiseley’s proposal was fake and the whole love story was just a thing created to get more camera time.
Several of Deal’s recent social media posts comment on how real her and Wiseley’s relationship is and how she cannot wait for their wedding after being together for three years. Both Deal and Sorbello met their partners on previous seasons of the show. Season 34 of ‘The Challenge’ ultimately ended with Wiseley being on the winning team and sharing a part of the million-dollar prize, and Sorbello and Calafiore falling short on the losing team after dominating the social aspects of the game all season.
Though not officially announced, many fans are speculating season 35 of ‘The Challenge’ will be the first season in a number of years without both Sorbello and Calafiore. They received a lot of negative social media attention after last season and often took to social media to defend themselves. Will Sorbello and Calafiore score an invite to Deal and Wiseley’s wedding? Only time will tell, but for now, they continue to make progress communicating with each other on social media.
