The Challenge: Spies, Lies & Allies Veteran previews: Devin Walker-Molaghan
Original Show: Are You the One? 3
Best Placement: Third Place (Rivals III)
Average Finish: 9.0
Elimination Record: 4–2
Most Memorable Moment: Calling his shot against Bananas
Devin set himself up against his Vendetta and self proclaimed nemesis Johnny Bananas on Vendettas. Bananas said he would beat Devin easily and Devin talked a big game too saying that he was going to take Bananas out. First he had to convince one of Banana’s biggest allies, Tony, to vote him in. Then when he got what he wanted Devin proved himself right and took Bananas out of the game.
Best Season: Vendettas
Rivals III may have been the highest finish for Devin but he and Cheyenne lost the first elimination round to Johnny & Jessica then they were brought back when a team quit then got incredibly lucky and never pulled the “Black Skull”allowing them to avoid elimination. On Vendettas Devin came in a lot better shape doing well in daily challenges even winning one and beating Bananas in an elimination. Ultimately Devin got purged in a mini final but he proved a lot more than he had in any other season on Vendettas.
Worst Season: XXX: Dirty Thirty
Devin had a very short stint on Dirty Thirty being one of the 3 guys purged at the beginning of the season when Cory chose to . He got a few more episodes being in the absolutely chaotic Redemption House but at the redemption challenge he was beat in the first round sending him home permanently that time.
Allies: Kyle, Nam, Big T, CT (maybe), Cory (maybe)
Devin is in a spot where there are a few people who are his very clear allies like Kyle, Nam & Big T who were core members of his alliance last season. CT is more of a question he got along with Devin last season and going in that’s probably his plan but CT will always look out for himself and if he gets a better deal CT will absolutely betray Devin to get further in the game. Devin was partnered with Cory on Final Wreckoning and with Leroy not being on the season Cory is less tied to the Big Brother side of the house so he is a potential ally for Devin this season too.
Enemies: Fessy, Josh, Kaycee, Nany (probably), Tori (maybe), Amber(if she works with Big Brother), Amanda (potentially if she works with Josh)
Part of what makes Devin a very fun character to have on seasons of The Challenge is how explosive he is, he gets into fights and drama with people and as a result he definitely has a few enemies coming in to this season. First off Devin & Josh clashed on several occasions both due to gameplay and drunken arguments last season they both have talked about being enemies. Similarly, Devin clashed with Fessy and since Fessy & Josh are tight and Devin has taken up yelling “Big Brother Sucks!” for kicks and to get under their skin I assume he will be against the entire Big Brother alliance which also includes Kaycee, very likely Nany, Amber potentially(it worked out for her last season), and Amanda, who is close to Josh. Devin did go on vacation with Josh between the filming of these two seasons but that’s very different in my mind than them teaming up in the game. The final wild card from me is Tori, he kind of screwed her over in the last season but Devin and Tori have known each other for years and have a seemingly (now)friendly rivalry with Tori apparently speaking positively about their friendship on her and Aneesa’s podcast.
It looked like it was the last we had seen of Devin on The Challenge before he was cast on Double Agents, Devin had not been on a season since Final Wreckoning and apparently he was not getting called anymore according to social media as much. They gave him another shot last season and he was in better shape than several of his other seasons, got involved in plenty of the drama and gave great confessionals as always. His position this season in my mind will come down to where he falls with Tori, Cory & Nelson. If that group sides with him, Kyle & Nam, I could see Devin having a really strong run. He can win daily challenges, can win some eliminations and has not been terrible at endurance doing well in the Rock of Gibraltar run on Vendettas and middle of the road on the mini final last season. In a world where Devin has a good partner and benefits from the puzzles I could see him having a chance to win.
