Chris "CT" Tamburello and Johnny "Bananas" Devenanzio are two of the MTV franchise's most famous alums, thanks mainly to their numerous appearances on the never ending spinoff series, "The Challenge." It's been 13 years since CT went abroad to live with 6 strangers and 10 since Bananas shacked up in Florida ...
and now, the latter is revealing his one gripe about being on the show. they call it Paris, but you were an hour and a half outside the city," explains Johnny at a recent event for Mountain Dew in NYC.
Added to that he also has an online store and other side incomes. He has also appeared on Challenge seasons The Duel, The Inferno III, The Gauntlet 3, The Island, The Ruins, Cutthroat Rivals, Battle of the Exes, Rivals 2, Free Agents, Battle of the Exes 2 and Battle of the Bloodlines. he has been with MTV for over ten years now and this journey has been an exceptional one.
Recently, they've thrown exes and dares into the mix in attempts to keep it relevant ...
and these two alums have definitely noticed how much things have changed.
He also runs a popular website where he is selling branded tank tops, tees, booty shorts for women and such.
He is quite a crowd favorite and has 256 thousand followers on his personal Instagram account.

He pretty much stole 7,500 from Sarah, who’s very much more than half the reason he was in this position in the first place. If he were to step foot onto the set of another “Challenge,” who would ever want to join him in an alliance?
At the age of 18 he moved to New York and started building his life from ground up.
He studied from The Pennsylvania State University where he studied Bachelors in Economics.
But at the same time, it’s hard to imagine how or why he would ever want to come back.
