Was Lolo Jones forced to quit 'The Challenge'? Olympian reveals shocking details: 'There are so many secrets'
Lolo Jones was branded a 'quitter' the moment she decided to self-eliminate from 'The Challenge: Double Agents' after losing the airdrop task. But there's more to that story. The real reason why she's not a part of the show also exposes the MTV-offering in the most shocking way possibly. The Olympian alleges she was "forced" to quit the show.
Many fans and viewers may not agree with her version of the story because they have witnessed her break down over task losses in the weeks leading up to her exit. However, it's always a good idea to know both sides before drawing conclusions.
Her post-exit interview with the US Weekly is scathing. Lolo spoke about how everything on the show is "staged". Is this a case of a disgruntled alum? Not really given how confident she seems in her rant against the producers.
"MTV the challenge forced me to quit, and that is facts. I’ve never quit anything in my life. Heck I’m one of the oldest Olympians bc I don’t quit, I was pulled aside before the show and told to make it look like I needed to leave," she claimed and added that it was a blessing in disguise because had she not left the show she would not have made it to USA's Bobsled team. She won, by the way.
Lolo then went on to spill more "secrets" from Episode 11. She told the outlet that Chris 'CT' Tamburello and Tula 'Big T' Fazakerley didn't win the airdrop task. They were not the fastest agents. The Olympian further elaborated how she was willing to stick around and fight despite knowing that the "producers can change the rules to fit who they want to win".
“There are so many secrets that are not known to the viewers. Hope that people remember the challenge is not a real competition it’s a tv show. They Do Not show the full picture but what is entertaining. So before u write hate messages know u are judge and jury w/o full evidence," Lolo added.
