Kaycee and Nany met on The Challenge: Total Madness, which aired in 2020. They later went on to compete on The Challenge: Double Agents as well as Spies, Lies & Allies and shared where they stood after they shared a kiss in the trailer for the latter season.
“We’ve always been allies in the game and have maintained a very good friendship since, but there was always an undeniable connection between the two of us,” Nany told E! News in July 2021 ahead of the premiere. “I think this upcoming season of The Challenge is where we really explore what that connection is and what it means.”
The pair then continued to share their love with their fans both on TV—also competing on Ride or Dies—and on social media.
“I love how caring and real Nany is,” Kaycee, who won Spies, Lies & Allies, added. “She is not afraid to express herself, which I respect so much. She’s such a beautiful soul that I am so grateful to have met through this crazy game. She amazes me every day.”
