How The Challenge’s CT Tamburello Got ‘Back in Shape’ Ahead of Season 37: ‘I Made a Lifestyle Change’

The beast is back. For the last few seasons, The Challenge‘s CT Tamburello has listened to his castmates call out his dad bod. Despite still winning multiple challenges, including season 36, he made a change before the upcoming 37th season, Spies, Lies and Allies.

“As soon as I saw all you guys, I’m like, ‘I don’t know how I’m gonna f–king do this one,'” CT, 41, tells rookie Tommy Sheehan in Us Weekly‘s exclusive sneak peek of The Challenge Spies, Lies and Allies: Global Activation launch special, set to air on Monday, August 9.

“I think you’re a little different now than when I first watched you,” the Survivor alum, 28, says. CT then responds, “Yeah, people won’t let me forget it!”

In his confessional, the four-time winner elaborated on his new look. “I made some lifestyle changes. I got my ass back in shape,” the Real World alum says. “I figured if I don’t have the element of surprise anymore with the dad bod, I might as well come in hot.”

The new clip also features a look at the format, sharing that the Americans move in first and the 17 international competitors join a bit later.

CT has been a threat since his debut on The Challenge in 2004. After welcoming son Chris with wife Lili Sorales in 2016, the reality star has often talked about his “dad bod.” Still, he has managed to dominate competition after competition, winning 2021’s Double Agents alongside rookie Amber Borzotra.

Following his win, he exclusively shared with Us that he had no plans to hang up his Challenge hat anytime soon.

“Ever since I took some time off and came back with the dad bod, no one wanted me. I’ve always been underestimated,” he shared with Us in April. “It’s funny because I have a higher winning percentage now during my dad bod era than I did in my 20s.”

He added that he doesn’t “need to do anything physical” to prove himself, but has no plans on rolling over just yet.

“I f–king love it. This is the greatest game in the world. You have to be able to do everything really well. You can’t prepare for it. I’ve been doing it for so long, part of me wants to say, it’s all I know,” Tamburello told Us. “If I honestly felt like I couldn’t compete, I would go home and give it to somebody that deserves to be here.”

The Challenge Spies, Lies and Allies: Global Activation launch special airs on MTV Monday, August 9, at 8 p.m. ET. The season kids off on MTV Wednesday, August 11, at 8 p.m. ET.

Nineteen seasons. Four wins. A lot of diapers purchased on MTV's dime.

Even before winning The Challenge's latest season, Double Agents, Chris "C.T." Tamburello's place as one of the show's most dominant performers and personalities was set. But after taking home his fourth win in the MTV reality hit's 36th season April 21, many fans can argue C.T., who first appeared on The Real World: Paris in 2003, is the greatest Challenger of all-time.

Viewers have watched C.T. grow up over the course of the series, going from a hot-headed hotshot from Boston with a penchant for throwing punches to a 40-year-old devoted father who full embraces his "dad-bod." After almost two decades on our TV screens, C.T. remains compelling and captivating.

But, like any great athlete that dominates their sport--Don't even try to deny that The Challenge hasn't evolved from Spring Break for adults to a full-blown athletic event, Olympians are competing now!--C.T. has been considering his future on the series.

See Chris "C.T." Tamburello's Transformation on The Challenge Over the Years

"Look, I don't know how much longer I can do this," C.T. admitted to E! News in a phone interview after his win with Big Brother's Amber Borzotra. "It reminds me of like, I hate to say it, but, like, my old man. He's in his 60s, but he doesn't play in 55-plus baseball league, he plays in the 30-plus because the 55-plus isn't competitive enough. I've always said if I don't honestly feel like I can compete, it'd be time for me to step down, let someone else take that slot that really deserves it."

C.T., did however, acknowledge that the prospect of heading to The Challenge: All Stars, which launched its inaugural season earlier this month on Paramount+, has helped him come to terms with the idea of retiring from the main show, saying, "Now I know there's somewhere to go," he said.

Confirming he'd be "down" to join the spinoff in future seasons, C.T. said, "I wasn't asked, believe or not."

Mark Long Has a "Big, Huge Ultimate Plan" for The Challenge: All Stars and He Told Us All About It

We actually could believe it, considering Mark Long, The Challenge "godfather" who orchestrated All Stars, previously told E! News that he was hoping to stack the cast with throwback surprises—think Teck, Yes, Ruthie and Big Easy—rather than stars, like C.T. or Johnny Bananas, who are still very present.

"The more C.T.s or Bananas we get for the first season, the more it kind of defeats the purpose of what it is," Long explained, before going on to tease, "Don't be surprised if you see someone that is more current, like a real real player in season two or three because I think it's definitely open."

And after C.T. what gleaned from talking with some of the season one All Stars, he is "open" to transitioning to the spinoff.

"I heard it was amazing because it was a breath of fresh air coming from Double Agents, which was so intense," he explained. "And this one felt like the old days where it was more laidback, and people were just reminiscing and having fun."

So yeah, it turns out the competitor, who once threatened to "smash" someone's head and "eat" it, is going a little soft, explaining to E! News that it's not the wins he looks back on most fondly.

"I find myself thinking about the stuff outside of it, like when we're all together for the first time and we're all flying together to locations," he said. "And every season there's always a Challenge song and we all wait for it to come on the bus on the way to a challenge and we all sing it as loud as we can. Or we have nights out and everyone gets drunk and acting silly. All the pranks that we do or after we're done filming, we stay an extra week with some friends."

He continued, "That's what I find myself thinking about and I know there are a lot of things on the line and of money, but I wish and I hope the younger generation appreciates their situation more and have some more fun with it."

So, while some of the young and hungry up-and-comers looking to make a name for themselves on The Challenge may have questioned his viability on Double Agents, C.T. isn't taking the bait anymore.

"I have nothing else to prove," he said. "I've had a good run."

Plus, he'd still have a chance to prove them wrong even if he doe eventually choose to head to All Stars, as Long revealed his ultimate plan.

"We do many seasons of the OG, maybe seven or eight seasons and then what you have is the most epic OG vs. new school Challenge," he shared. "It's the Super Bowl of Challenges. It's me against Fessy [Shafaat] in a f--king Hall Brawl. It's the ultimate Challenge that people will lose their minds over. That's the ultimate evolution of where the All Stars Challenge is going to go, but we are going to stand on our own for a while. We have plenty of personalities to do it."

When asked about the possibility of an old school vs. new school showdown, C.T. just laughed, before saying of the current cast, "These kids are animals."

Hey, takes one to beat one.

CT Tamburello is a fan favorite from MTV’s The Challenge. He first got his start on The Real World and then moved on to the reality competition series, and fans hope he’s here to stay. Unfortunately, it looks like an altercation between him and Fessy Shafaat could derail him on Double Agents. And it’s certainly not the first time he’s been caught up in a physical brawl. Here’s how many times he’s been kicked off the show in the past.

CT Tamburello from MTV’s ‘The Challenge’ has a history of physical altercations

RELATED: ‘The Challenge’: Is CT Removed From the Show After Altercation With Fessy?

CT is a force to be reckoned with on MTV’s The Challenge. While many know him for his lovable, father-like attitude on the show nowadays, he had a much different demeanor when first starting out. In the past, it wasn’t uncommon to see CT get into physical fights on the show that would cause production to disqualify him from remaining in the competition.

So, how many times has production removed CT from the game for violence? In total, he’s competed on 21 seasons of The Challenge. According to The Challenge Fandom page, he was removed during The Inferno III and The Duel II, so two seasons total.

He’s had plenty of fights that didn’t get him removed from the game, too. During Rivals, he and veteran champion Cara Maria Sorbello got into it verbally, which resulted in Cara getting pushed by another contestant. Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio then talked to Cara afterward, establishing their sibling-like relationship in the game.

How old is CT? What does he think of his past mistakes?

Everyone makes plenty of mistakes when they’re young, and the same applies to CT. Thankfully, he seems to have grown quite a lot over the years. Today, he’s 40 years old, and he tends to stay out of the drama whenever possible.

CT also has his son to consider when he goes on reality TV. He can’t afford to head out for MTV’s The Challenge without doing his best to win. With that in mind, he seems more focused and driven to do well, and his efforts have proven fruitful. He’s won a number of seasons and continues to prove he has a lot more drive left before he calls it quits completely.

As for his past, CT can’t stand to look at the type of player he used to be. “Look at this cocky prick walking around with his beanie cap on, look at that broccoli head,” he said of himself while watching back old footage. “No wonder why I was getting into so many fights, like, I want to punch this kid.”

How many times has CT won ‘The Challenge’?

While CT’s been kicked off of MTV’s The Challenge in the past, he’s also made it to the end quite a few times. He won Rivals II, Invasion of the Champions,Champs vs Stars, and War of the Worlds II. Given his current trajectory on Double Agents, it looks like CT could be headed for another win this season.

Many fans might hope for CT to make an appearance on The Challenge: All Stars, but it doesn’t look like he’ll be there this season. The only two contestants from Double Agents who are in All Stars are Darrell Taylor and Aneesa Ferreira.

We’re looking forward to watching CT on the rest of Double Agents — and we’re hoping he doesn’t get disqualified for any fighting going forward.

Why MTV's "The Challenge" Stars Keep Coming Back

Eighteen seasons. Four disqualifications. Three wins. $515,000 in the bank. A whole lot of diapers purchased. Such is Chris "C.T." Tamburello's time on The Challenge.

Since his first appearance on the MTV's reality competition series in 2004, the Boston native has quite simply dominated the show—in more ways than one. Athletic, brash, confident and very quick-tempered, during C.T.'s early years you never quite knew which version of The Real World: Paris star was showing up for a Challenge. He was either going to crush it or crush his chances by getting booted for violating house rules.

But over the years, C.T. has settled down and fans have watched as he's experienced love and loss with the late Diem Brown, become a father and a husband, and gone from ripped 23-year-old who was more than OK to be sent home for fighting to a 40-year-old with a self-proclaimed "dad bod" looking to earn some cash to buy diapers. 

And C.T. is currently competing for his fourth win on Double Agents, finally getting his chance to go into an elimination to win his gold skull to run T.J. Lavin's final. (Yes, you have to call it that.)

In honor of his big episode, let's look back on C.T.'s journey and ever-changing hairstyles on The Challenge...

diem fights cancer and ct helps her in rivals 2 (best quality)

The Challenge stars Chris “CT” Tamburello and Diem Brown had one of the most unforgettable romances in the show’s lengthy history.  They first crossed paths on MTV’s The Duel in 2006, which ended up sparking an on-again, off-again romance that fans couldn’t get enough of. Here is CT and Diem’s complete relationship timeline.

TV personalities Chris "CT" Tamburello and Diem Brown appear on MTV's "The Challenge: Rivals II" final episode and reunion party at Chelsea Studio on September 25, 2013

‘The Challenge’ fans immediately knew the relationship was one to watch

Just weeks before Diem filmed The Duel, she had completed a round of chemotherapy in her public battle with ovarian cancer. During the first couple of episodes, she wore wigs and scarves to cover her hair loss. The Challenge star hadn’t let anyone see her without her hair – not even her dad.

But there came a point where Diem had to take her wig off to compete, and it was a huge moment for her. When her fellow competitors saw her bald head for the first time, CT noticed that Diem had turned into “GI Jane, lookin’ like a little sexy supermodel secret agent.”

CT and Diem’s co-stars witnessed their first kiss

CT and Diem became quite the pair during The Duel, as the bad boy had a soft spot in his heart for The Challenge beauty. The Boston native helped Diem through the challenges she faced, and did everything he could to raise her confidence and make her feel comfortable around him.

“I tell her I don’t want her to hide herself from me. It’s about her opening herself up to me and being comfortable around me as her. And as she takes her bandana off…,” Tamburello told MTV cameras before fans — and their fellow competitors — witnessed the couple’s iconic first kiss on a cliff.

“I want to cry. It’s like I’m watching The Notebook,” a fellow competitor said.

‘The Challenge’ stars were off and on for years

Diem and CT avoided relationship titles after The Duel, but they did start dating despite living on opposite sides of the country. By 2008’s The Gauntlet III, it was clear that they were an official couple. But when they appeared on 2009’s The Duel II, they were broken up.

Still, they continued to have feelings for each other. When CT was kicked off the season for fighting another cast member, it was reportedly a fight about Diem. And, during that season’s reunion, Diem mentioned that she could see herself marrying CT.

When they reunited for 2012’s Battle of the Exes, things got quite heated between them but the chemistry was still there. They made it to the finals as a team and finished in second place, winning a $100,000 prize.

Their fans and co-stars were rooting for CT and Diem to get back together

In the “Race to the Altar” challenge on Battle of the Exes, the duo exchanged rings and shared a kiss at the end. Which Diem called “ironic.” CT said at the end of the season that he was glad they got the chance to square things away and be on the same team again.

At this point, The Challenge fans and cast were rooting for CT and Diem to get back together once again. But, the couple insisted that they weren’t on the same page.

‘The Challenge’ stars competed together for the last time in ‘Battle of the Exes II’

Diem was diagnosed with ovarian cancer a second time and had to go through chemotherapy again before she competed in 2013’s Rivals II. Just like she did on The Duel, Diem wore a wig. She and CT also had another bandana-removing moment that ended in a kiss. The two were not in a relationship, but they both expressed how much they cared for each other.

They both returned for 2014’s Battle of the Exes II, but that’s when things really took a turn for Diem. She reportedly collapsed on set in August 2014 and left to get treatment for a stomach ache. While she was gone, CT put together a care package and everyone in the house signed a card with sweet messages.

When she was expected to return to the house, CT and the rest of the contestants got some horrible news.

“Ya know, it’s crossed my mind that Diem may have more than a tummy ache,” CT told the cameras. “And if that’s the case, I’ll leave on the next flight with her, no questions asked.”

CT visited Diem in her final days

Diem’s medical situation prevented her from continuing in the game, and CT left with her. She later found out that her cancer had come back for a third time and had spread. Just a few weeks later — on November 14, 2014 — Diem lost her battle with cancer.

According to People magazine, CT visited Diem in her final days. He also posted a sweet tribute on Instagram after her death.

“You have always been My Angel. And now you have your wings. We’ve been thru so much over the years. Thru the ups and downs we somehow managed to keep our promise. We never gave up on each other. Our plan to be together forever hasn’t changed… it’s just going to take a little longer now,” CT wrote.

The Challenge is available on Netflix and Paramount+.
