'The Challenge' Season 38 is almost here. The show will once again bring a set of contestants who will compete against each other for survival. The one who manages to get through the challenges can skip the elimination and survive till the end. The winner gets to take away the prize money as well as the championship title of the show.
The last season of 'The Challenge' was won by Chris "CT" Tamburello. He now tops the list of the richest champions on 'The Challenge'. Well, before CT, Johnny "Bananas" Devenanzio was the richest person on the show. However, CT has stolen the show with his charming look and incredible ability to create drama. However, it is yet to be seen how long CT can hold on to the throne as the richest champion of MTV's show. Let us dig in to know more.
Who is the richest 'The Challenge' winner?
Chris "CT" Tamburello is now the richest 'The Challenge' winner of all time. CT is a contestant from 'The Real World: Paris'. He is the champion of 'Rivals II', 'Invasion of the Champions', 'Champs vs Stars', 'Champs vs Stars 2', 'War of the Worlds 2', 'Double Agents', and 'Spies, Lies, and Allies'. Apart from winning these seasons, CT was also the finalist in other seasons like 'The Inferno', 'The Inferno II', 'The Gauntlet III', 'Battle of the Exes', and 'Dirty 30'.
CT is often considered a 'hot head' as he is famous for his heated arguments with the contestants on the show. Well, picking up the fight and letting the show get the content has surely helped him earn more. According to Celebrity Net Worth, CT's net worth is around $800K. Moreover, the reality star took home $400,000 by winning the last season of MTV's competition show.
Bananas was the richest 'The Challenge' champion until CT took over. The star has won seven seasons and has been a contestant in 20. Bananas maintained his top spot for quite a while. Meanwhile, Ashley Mitchell and Jordon Wiseley are not far behind among the richest champions of 'The Challenge'.
'The Challenge: Ride or Dies' is scheduled to release on October 12 at 8 pm ET on MTV.
