Trishelle Cannatella has blasted Lolo Jones after the latter had questioned the integrity of The Challenge.
Trishelle Cannatella Blasts Lolo Jones In Response To The Olympian’s Criticism Of The Challenge
The feud started after Lolo claimed that none of the show’s stars were successful after leaving the show. The tweet in question stated: “How many challengers get picked up for anything after they are done? Pretty much none. After the challenge, that’s it. Done.” And given that Trishelle had been on the show previously, she felt she had to strike back and defend herself.
In an interview on the Watch With Us podcast, she said: “I saw her tweet, and I was just like, ‘Oh, I don’t like it.’ I felt like she was just disrespecting our family… those are my people that I’ve known forever. So, I didn’t like the way that she was kind of coming at us.”
Lolo was sadly eliminated from the competition, and she had claimed that the show was more concerned about entertainment than authenticity. But given that she is an Olympian, Trishelle felt that it was simply a case of sour grapes. In a previous post to her fans on Twitter, Trishelle said: “LoLo. Stop blaming production for you losing. As a professional athlete, you have a piss poor attitude.
“I was at a crawfish boil today in Baton Rouge, and it took everything in me not to knock on your door to get you to say this to my face. Girl, bye.” Things were bound to get messy, especially since Lolo is highly competitive herself. She is no stranger to criticism as she had to fight off critics throughout her career, as they focused more on her appearance and brand than her skill.
That is why things got nasty, which did not surprise Trishelle one bit. She added: “The people there [on the show] are just not fun. They don’t seem fun. They seem kind of nasty. I would like to do one with the All-Star people, like OG kind of people.” Lolo has yet to respond to Trishelle’s comments. But given that several members of the show have already bashed her, it is probably a wise move to keep quiet and let it simmer down.
