Tensions Rise Among Contestants in 20th Season of Colombia's Desafío XX Reality Show

With the 20th season of Colombia's iconic reality show "Desafío XX" now underway, tensions are already brewing among the contestants. In a recent episode, Alexander and Anamar from the Gamma team engaged in a heated argument over Anamar's leadership. Alexander criticized her, saying he believes she does not want him in the group but he has to put up with it. Anamar responded with angry looks, while some of her teammates defended her and criticized Alexander's attitude.

Desafío XX, which airs on Caracol Televisión, features contestants from different regions of Colombia competing in various challenges. The show is divided into four teams - Alpha, Omega, Beta, and Gamma. Episode 11, which aired on April 16th, showcased the growing conflicts within the teams.

One of the contestants this season is Valentina Rodríguez Ortiz, a 25-year-old business coach from Río Negro, Antioquia. Valentina, who comes from a traditional Paisa family, was inspired by her older brother to venture into business and investments. As part of the Beta team, she is determined to win or at least go as far as possible in the competition.

The show has also made headlines for the personal lives of its participants. Mafe Aristizábal, the new presenter this season, is engaged to entrepreneur Daniel Arango Vallejo. The couple has been together for over three years and is considering getting married in the near future.

In the final episode of the previous season, contestant Rigo proposed to his partner Michelle and also highlighted his achievement of winning the silver medal in the 2012 London Olympics. Ratings data showed that Rigo's episode had higher viewership than Desafío XX.

Why this matters:Desafío XX has been a staple of Colombian television for two decades, enthralling audiences with its intense competitions and personal dramas. As the show celebrates its 20th anniversary, the tensions among contestants reflect the high stakes and emotions involved in the iconic reality series.

The premiere of Desafío XX's 20th season on April 1st featured 32 participants divided into the four teams, with producers promising 91 challenging competitions testing their physical and mental abilities. In the first two weeks, four participants were already eliminated. The show continues to showcase the compelling life stories of contestants like Danilo from the Alpha team, who overcame a difficult upbringing as a street vendor to become a successful bodybuilder pursuing the prestigious title of Mister Olympia.
