This article contains spoilers for the episode of The Challenge: Ride or Dies airing on November 30.
Fans were saddened by Michele and her Ride or Die Jay’s elimination from The Challenge on November 30 despite the fact that they had a good ride.
They had fought hard together up until that point, and some may argue that the experience brought them closer together. Therefore, we must know if Jay and Michele are dating after The Challenge.
Obviously, not every possible coupling that participates in the game must be amorous. However, Jay and Michele had met before competing in the same season of The Challenge. Given their, um, dating history outside the show, it’s difficult not to wonder where they stand now.
Jay and Michele of ‘The Challenge’ are they dating?
The majority of Jay and Michele’s time on The Challenge: Ride or Dies was spent with viewers wondering if they are more than just buddies. Many felt that Michele gave the impression that she had feelings for Jay at the beginning of the season, but they do not appear to be dating presently. However, this could change, especially since they dated years ago.
In 2016, Jay was first spotted on Michele’s Snapchat, and their relationship became known to their fans. However, whatever transpired between them appears to have remained in the past, since they did not rekindle their romance during The Challenge: Ride or Dies.
Instead, they have demonstrated their tight friendship. Even though fans would love to see them together.
Unfortunately for supporters who still ship Michele and Jay, their connection remains platonic. Michele replied to Jay’s Instagram post about The Challenge in October 2022, telling him she loves him and calling him her “bestie.” And before to that, in May 2022, Michele did not include Jay in her Instagram postings regarding her birthday trip. If they were dating, he would have accompanied her on that vacation.
How do The Challenge’s Jay and Michele know one other?
Before Michele joined The Challenge, she participated in two seasons of Survivor and won one of them. Jay participated in a season of Survivor, but not simultaneously with Michele. However, he was a substitute during one of her seasons. And due to their connection to Survivor, they met and became friends.
Michele revealed to Entertainment Weekly in August 2021 that she sought to advice from Jay and their mutual acquaintance, fellow Survivor cast member Natalie Anderson, before her debut season on The Challenge in 2021.
She explained, “I was hoping they would be on with me, and I went into the season expecting them to be on.” “It was a shock to enter the house and discover that the two persons I intended to identify with were absent.
However, they advised me on who they would want to work with, how things were different, how they were similar, and who I should keep an eye out for.”
Michele and Jay may not only compete in future seasons of The Challenge together, but they may also grow closer. And we have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of these two as a pair.
