The Bachelorette’s Brooke Blurton has also signed on, as has MAFS bride Cyrell Paule, David Subritzky from I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and Olympic swimmer Emily Seebohm.

Channel 10 has been mocked over the network’s casting selection for their upcoming season of new game show The Challenge
‘Some of these ‘celebs’ have less followers than my old account,’ another added, before later tweeting, ‘Reported to the ACCC for false advertising.’
One joked ‘Incredibly proud to say I cannot name a single person there.’
Contestants will compete ‘in a game of secrets, spies and lies’ while away from friends and family during the series filmed in Buenos Aires.
