The Challenge: Kyle Christie, Johnny Bananas, and Theo Campbell Prank Amanda Garcia

Three of The Challenge’s contestants played a prank on Amanda Garcia. She and even some of the other players did not find the prank amusing. Johnny Bananas, Kyle Christie, and Theo Campbell taped the woman’s mouth shut. The guys might have seen it as a harmless prank but Amanda said it was not the cheap “dollar store tap,” and got stuck in her hair.

According to Da’Vonne Rogers, the three decided to tape Amanda’s mouth shut because she was bad-mouthing them. But the prank seemed a little more extreme than necessary. The end result was a lot of hair being pulled out of Amanda Garcia’s head.
