From The Real World to The Challenge, Chris “CT” Tamburello has built an impressive career in MTV’s reality universe. While Tamburello is currently starring in another season of The Challenge, he also looking forward to retiring from the show and moving on with his life. But will Tamburello star in his own reality series in the near future?
Tamburello talked about his longevity in reality TV during an interview with Rolling Stone. The Challenge star admitted that a lot has changed on the series over the years and that he is looking forward to the day when he retires.
Tamburello is currently 38 years old and does not see himself on the show when he hits 40. That’s a pretty strong hint that Tamburello will call it quits in the next two years, but that might not be the last time we see him on television.
When asked if he was open to starring on his own reality show, Tamburello coyly responded with, “Stay tuned!” He didn’t reveal any more details about the secret show, but rumors indicate it might be more personal than anything he’s done so far.
In fact, fans believe that the new show will revolve around Tamburello and his mystery girlfriend, Lilianet Solares.
For a long time, fans only knew Tamburello as Diem Brown’s boyfriend. The two dated on-and-off during his time on The Challenge and their romance quickly won the hearts of fans around the world. Tamburello reportedly proposed to Brown before her tragic death a few years ago.
Tamburello took a leave of absence from the show after Brown succumbed to cancer. When he returned, we learned that he had just had a son with his new girlfriend. He hasn’t said much about Solares on the show, but we know a few things about her from social media.
Solares is from Cape Coral, a town close to Fort Myers, where Tamburello moved after Brown’s death. The two are extremely private about their romance and the reality star has only shared one photo of his girlfriend over the course of their relationship.
Despite the lack of information, inside sources claim that Tamburello and Solares got engaged as recently as this month. With a wedding on the horizon, it is possible that the new show will follow Tamburello as he ties the knot with Solares. Either way, it’s clear that we haven’t heard the last from CT, at least not yet.
The Challenge: Final Reckoning airs Tuesday nights on MTV.
