Nany Gonzalez and girlfriend Kaycee Clark are set to star in Season 38 of The challenge. However, the couple will face off on the MTV show by teaming up with different partners.
Nancy teamed with Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio, while Kaycee teamed with her brother Kenny Clark. Nanny returns to the show to redeem herself after being eliminated against girlfriend Kaycee on The challenge: spies, lies and allies.
The challenge the couple Nany Gonzalez and Kaycee Clark were friends before their relationship
The challenge alum Nany Gonzalez met Kaycee Clark in 2019 while filming The challenge: total madness season 35. However, the two were just friends at the time, as Kaycee had been in a relationship with Tayler Jimenez since 2018.
Nany and Kaycee stayed in touch after the show ended. Speaking about their friendship, Nany told E! New:
“Kaycee and I met on Total madness. We’ve always been allies in the game and have had a really good friendship ever since, but there’s always been an undeniable bond between the two of us.”
Rumors of their relationship started making the rounds when they were seen sharing a kiss in the Season 37 trailer. By then Kaycee had also broken up with Tayler, who blasted the former with accusations of cheating. In season 37, viewers witnessed their new connection, confirming their relationship. At the time, Nany said:
“I think this next season of The challenge This is where we really explore what this connection is and what it means.
Their goofy and beloved Instagram posts confirmed their relationship. Nany loves how “incredibly athletic” Kaycee is. Kaycee spoke about Nany:
“She’s like a little superhero and in my mind, there’s nothing she can’t do!” On a personal level, I love her sincerity and kindness to everyone she meets. She’s really beautiful inside and out.”
“How caring and real Nany is. She’s not afraid to express herself, which I respect so much. She’s such a beautiful soul that I’m so grateful to have met through this crazy game. She amazes me every day.”
Although Nanny told MTV News in June 2020 that they were just “roommates” when they first met, she never “doubted” Kaycee when she joined the show, noting that Kaycee matches “every bullet point” for an “ideal soul mate”.
The very loving couple celebrated their first anniversary just a few months ago and are now planning to expand their family. Speaking about their plans, Nany told Us Weekly during the 2022 VMAs:
“We talked about it a lot. The next step, of course, would be marriage. And then, of course, after that, there would be the kids and that, of course, would come with, you know, IVF and all that. So it’s definitely something we’ll look into eventually and we’re very excited about our future together.
The two will now face off in season 38 of The challenge and compete fiercely. Seventeen teams, made up of family members, friends and exes, will compete on the reality show to win a million dollar prize and a trophy.
