'The Challenge': Fessy Shafaat kissed eliminated agent Ashley Mitchell as well as Gabby Allen, here are the clues
Fessy started 'The Challenge: Double Agents' amid rumors of him and Tori Deal getting together on the show, he seemed very 'attracted' to her but wasn't shown working on his feelings
Faysal 'Fessy' Shafaat is turning out to be quite the player this season, both literally and figuratively. He started 'The Challenge: Double Agents' amid rumors of him and Tori Deal getting together on the show. He seemed very "attracted" to her but wasn't shown working on his feelings or even approaching Tori with it. In one of his green-room interviews, Fessy even said that Jordan Wiseley's absence gives him a chance to interact more with Tori. Tori and Jordan dated for a couple of years before ending it in December 2020.
But these last two episodes have been quite the eye-opener in terms of who he's really eyeing. In a post-episode discussion session, host Devin Symone shared a clip where he and eliminated agent Ashley Mitchell sneakily kissed. They picked a corner and Fessy held up a towel over their head so that no one could see them get intimate. When asked about what he thought of it, Fessy said he doesn't recall the moment and was pretty sure a "spell" was cast on him.
In Episode 6 titled 'From Theresa With Love', he was seen getting flirty with 'Love Island' star Gabby Allen. Although she thought of him as arrogant, they kissed. In her confessional, she said he'd have to do a lot more than a simple conversation to get her walls down. Will MTV air their kiss or will it get doctored at the edit table? Only time will tell but the showrunners seem to have every intention to play out their storyline, else they would not have added blink-and-miss footage of Fessy and Gabby kissing in the trailer.
But, wasn't Fessy dating Haleigh Broucher?
The now ex-couple met on 'Big Brother' and dated for nearly two years before splitting up in July 2020. Theirs was one drawn-out and confusing breakup because both parties involved had different stories to share. While Haleigh claimed that they were still together when he left for Iceland to film 'Double Agents', Fessy apparently told his fellow-competitors that they had broken up when he arrived on the sets.
