O’Connor and Nguyen had plenty of air time together — so when Nguyen’s parts were cut from Total Madness after her firing, some of O’Connor’s parts were cut as well. He told the Challenge Mania podcast that he didn’t mind, though.
“I would rather see me on the screen having fun, even it’s for 30 seconds to a minute, and being a good competitor during an episode. I would rather watch that than watch me argue with Dee for half an hour of the episode,” O’Connor noted.
“Dee was a storyline that I wanted to get rid of the end of last season, yet alone carry through into this one, so for me, I loved [her parts getting cut],” he added. “Even though I lost a lot of screen time, that wasn’t important to me really. … Personally, I didn’t think it was too bad a deal.”
It looks like we’ll be seeing some new storyline with O’Connor in the future since Nguyen won’t be back — and perhaps we’ll see him find a new love interest as well.
The Challenge: Total Madness is over, and unfortunately for Rogan O’Connor, he couldn’t pull through with the win. He spoke to the Challenge Mania podcast about his experience on the show — and the topic of Dee Nguyen came up.
Nguyen was fired from MTV which resulted in the network cutting Nguyen’s parts from Total Madness. And the podcast hosts asked O’Connor how he felt about it. According to O’Connor, he’s glad Nguyen’s parts were cut. Here’s what he said.

Nguyen is quite a controversial figure on The Challenge. While she was a good competitor and learned a lot of her social game from Wes Bergmann, her relationship with O’Connor was frequently front and center. Unfortunately, fans won’t be seeing much of Nguyen in the future. MTV fired her after she posted racist remarks on her Twitter.
Nguyen participated in Blackout Tuesday by posting a black square to social media. She then went on to post selfies, which brought along a lot of hate. To that, she tweeted, “People die every f*cking day. You don’t know me or what I do. I suggest you wake the f*ck up and get off social media.”
She followed this tweet up with, “I don’t know why some of you think I’m anti-Black Lives Matter. I’ve been saying that since the day I lost my virginity.”
MTV cut ties with her after that. “As a result of Dee Nguyen’s offensive comments on the Black Lives Matter movement, we have severed ties with her,” the network posted to social media.
