'The Challenge': Stephen Bear kicked out, fans think he focused more on Kailah Casillas and that did it
Once, Kailah told Stephen to stay off-limits because she had a boyfriend back home
Stephen Bear may have annoyed fans but he makes for good TV. Unfortunately, he lost 'The Challenge' to Nelson Thomas. As was expected, the shocking elimination has left the viewers surprised, even the ones who wanted him gone.
Stephen wasn't the most competitive one on the show. However, he tried. But his focus was mainly on Kailah Casillas, with whom he made out a couple of times but not before pursuing her for weeks. Once, Kailah told Stephen to stay off-limits because she had a boyfriend back home. He reacted by dousing everyone with fire extinguishing chemicals. It was fun for those who took it lightly, but others almost went for his neck.
However, a few weeks into the chase, Kailah gave in. They kissed and hugged. This wouldn't have been surprising if she didn't have a conversation prior to their makeout session about them staying friends.
Stephen knows reality TV well and was possibly the only one with an interesting and controversial story arc. Chasing and kissing a taken girl always leads to a conversation. He used the idea until it fizzled out and led to the exit.
Meanwhile, fans are sitting on the fence with the decision. While some seem to have liked it, others are hating it that Stephen Bear's not on the show.
"Why even waste an elimination on Bear? The guy is literally just there to be on TV. He'd never win a tribunal. Never want a red scull. The only downside is he's a prick but other than that the guy doesn't even want to win the final. #TheChallegne35 #TheChallenge," a fan commented, another shared: "Welp. @stephen_bear
goes home and there goes the season’s entertainment. #mtvchallenge #TheChallenge."
Some even thought his focus was elsewhere and that cost him his spot on the show. "Bear did all that work wit that girl and forgot to pay attention to the game #TheChallenge," a viewer expressed.
"Also I love how this season of #TheChallenge is rolling out, although I wish Bear would’ve stayed, we all know how I feel about Nelson goofass," another wrote.
