The 30-year-old TV star has been involved in her fair share of commotion on previous reality shows. Between hooking up with Jax Taylor while he was dating Brittany Cartright on Lisa Vanderpump's hit reality show, or battling it out against her ex on MTV's Ex On The Beach, Stowers is no rookie to the drama that can come with living out your personal life on television. However, the reality TV alum wasn't having it after being on the receiving end of an "aggressive" verbal attack from a fellow Challenge contestant. Viewers were left surprised after the show's host TJ Lavin announced ahead of a woman's elimination on Wednesday that Faith decided to leave the show. In addition to her unexpected departure, there was no explanation or footage that revealed exactly why she left.
Faith recently broke her silence during an interview and explained how a verbal altercation with Stephen Bear and Kyle Christie had her packing her bags and returning home. Faith said it all started after she was woken up in the middle of the night by Bear and Christie yelling loudly across her room. The 30-year-old told Us that a lot of the issues in the house came from everyone being sick with bacterial infections which caused a lot of coughing. "I’ve been through noisy, sleepless nights. This isn’t my first Challenge. However, this is the first Challenge I’ve been involved in that we were sick. It was very difficult for a lot of us."
Faith says she "didn’t want to come off aggressive" so she resorted to politely asking the guys to be quiet. She claimed, however, that "Bear gave me this disgusted look, like, ‘Who are you?’ No one on the shows who have been on this show for years and earned their right to be cocky have ever looked at me like that." She then admits to becoming irritable when she heard them say, "F*ck off" to her. In retaliation, Faith thought it would be funny to get Bear back by banging a pot and pan together twice above his head, just after he went to sleep. But after she returned to bed, Bear then woke her up a second time to ask her why she banged the pots over his head. Their discussion turned heated in the hallway when they "started to exchange words back." Eventually, the two stopped their bickering and went to bed. However, when production called her out of bed for an interview about what happened, Christie and Laurel Stuckey were waiting for Faith once she left the confessional. 27-year-old Christie continued to ask her why she woke him up.
The escalation of the argument left Faith flustered. She then decided that she couldn't do the show with the situation unfolding, and although she was hurt, she felt no choice but to leave. After letting everyone know that she was leaving, Bear apologized and Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio and Christie did the same. She claimed that many of the contestants begged her to stay, but her decision had already been made.
The Challenge 2: War of the Worlds airs Wednesdays at 9 pm EST on MTV.
