The Challenge Australia: Conor Curran Is Here to Represent Queer Babes Who Love Food
Originally a spin-off from historic, game-changing reality shows The Real World and Road Rules, The Challenge has grown into one of the most popular and long-running competition shows of all time. Thanks to its ever-changing format and variety of players with influential followings, the show has earned a rabid fan base that follows the game’s inevitable twists and turns.
And now, in 2022, we have The Challenge Australia, hosted by the charismatic sports commentator Brihony Dawson.
The Challenge Australia will see 22 of Australia’s biggest names across the entertainment, sports and reality worlds descend on Buenos Aires, Argentina, and into the most unpredictable and demanding game of their lives.
Challengers will be randomly paired to clash head-to-head in extreme physical contests, test strategies, and survive eliminations and cut-throat alliances to win challenges and eliminate their opponents. And if that wasn’t enough, they’ll also have steamy hook-ups, messy exes and fractured friendships to navigate. We’re living for the inevitable drama!
With a whopping $200,000 cash prize and a ticket entry into the first ever The Challenge: Global Championship, only one female and one male competitor will have the perfect combination of physical, mental, and social skills to reign supreme.
One of the challengers on The Challenge Australia 2022, is MasterChef Australia’s Conor Curran.
He may be known for his ice creams, cocktails and absolutely rocking the sh*t out of that single earring, but celebrating his heritage and creating an inclusive environment is what truly matters to Conor.
While admitting that he was hesitant to come on The Challenge Australia at first, the content creator and recipe developer joins the other Challengers, as a proud, queer and confident competitor.
And, despite being ready to compete, he’s also a little sad to be leaving his work, family and community behind
“I’m going to miss my community,” Conor says in a press statement. “I’ve made a safety bubble for myself within the queer community and
losing that is a scary prospect.”
How will this cooking king stack up against the rest?
The Challenge Australia airs at 7.30pm on Network Ten on Mondays and Tuesdays. Catch up on 10 Play.
