Well this is awkward — but it was bound to happen! There’s always hooking up on ‘The Challenge,’ but this time, it’s a little more awkward, because on ‘Battle of the Exes 2,’ your exes are right there in front of you. That didn’t stop Zach, though.
Let me just point something out here — Zach is a total flirt and finds a fling on every Challenge, so this is no surprise! In a sneak peek at the second episode, we see Zach getting very close to Jenna at the bar — while his ex, Jonna sits just a few feet away with Jenna’s ex, Jay! Are you following?
‘The Challenge’: Zach & Jenna Flirt
“Do you know how many dudes in here would be honored to be with you?” Zach askes Jenna — who immediately shoots him down and tells him, “Yeah, to hook up and that’s it.” And with that, Zach takes a jab at Jay.
“No one should ever treat you like that,” he says. “Especially someone who’s that tall.” Good one, Zach.
Of course, the best part of all of this is Jenna explaining to the camera that she’s done dating “guys like that look like Jay” and wants “tall, muscles and tan” or in other words, Zach AKA “Thor.”
Now we know Zach was crushing on her in episode one when he couldn’t stop looking at her backside. And now, he’s telling her about it. “You bring out the primal senses in every dude in the house.” What a great pick up line, Z!
Jay & Jonna: ‘Why Not?’
Meanwhile, across the bar is Jay and Jonna, who see their exes flirting. It clearly upsets Jonna, but Jay made her feel better!
“That’s fine, cause I have no problem staying here with you,” he said — before then basically telling Jonna that means they should “cuddle up” too.
“Might as f–kin’ well,” Jonna says, clearly not amused but still willing to take a shot. “Only ’cause I love your eyes,” Jay answers. Oh Jay, Jay, Jay. We can’t wait to see where this one goes.
Do you think the couples will swap exes and actually hook up? Let us know! Then tune in to MTV’s The Challenge tonight at 11:00 PM ET.
