Fans wonder why Cara Maria Sorbello didn’t return for ‘The Challenge: Global’
When the cast list dropped for The Challenge: Global, many fans noticed the lack of female representation among the winners from the franchise. There are five male champions to four women winners, and all the men have multiple victories.
Therefore, they wondered why Cara Maria Sorbello, who has competed in nine finals and won two, didn’t get invited to the spinoff series.
She boasts an impressive elimination record with 13 wins to 6 losses and holds numerous records, including the most elimination wins by a female, the most final appearances, and the most consecutive appearances in a final.
Additionally, she shares records for the most consecutive seasons competed in and the most appearances in a season before winning one. Her Vendettas victory also made her the first solo Challenge winner. Cara Maria responded to the noise by claiming she hadn’t received an invitation to return. “If only I was a male Challenge winner instead,” she added.
Female champs Ashley Mitchell and Jenny West are also not a part of the cast
Fans also named Ashley Mitchell as someone they wanted to see compete, noting she holds the record for most money won by a female.
Following her Invasion of the Champions victory, she infamously kept the money for herself in Final Reckoning, etching her name in the Challenge history books.

However, she hasn’t appeared on the show again since her Spies, Lies, and Allies disqualification for breaking the rules.
Finally, many fans expressed their desire for Jenny West to come back. She only competed in two seasons but proved a dominant threat by finishing the Total Madness final ahead of everyone else, including seven-time champ Johnny Bananas. The UK native was an alternate in Double Agents but never appeared in the show.
