What Really Happened To The Challenge's Brad Fiorenza?

"The Challenge" fans remember Brad Fiorenza from his "Real World: San Diego" days back in 2004. The season was a memorable one, as Fiorenza was cast alongside Cameran Eubanks, who went on to star in Bravo's "Southern Charm" in later years, and Jamie Chung, who is now a successful Hollywood actor. Fiorenza reunited with Eubanks on "The Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Battle of the Sexes 2," along with their "Real World" castmates Robin Hibbard and Jacquese Smith. Although Fiorenza didn't make it to the final, he went on to compete in several seasons of "The Challenge" and made it to his first final in "The Duel."

Fiorenza would go on to star in "The Gauntlet III" in 2008 where he met and fell in love with Tori Hall, per Us Weekly. The two got married in 2010 but separated in 2015. "We met really young. I was 20 years old when I met him and I grew up with him," Hall stated. "When we grew up and realized the things that we wanted in life ... We realized we agreed on nothing. The only thing we agree on is our two kids." Unfortunately for Hall and Fiorenza, their divorce was anything but amicable.

Brad Fiorenza and Tori Hall engaged in a battle over their kids

Brad Fiorenza and Tori Hall finalized their divorce in 2016 and in 2018, Hall moved to Nashville with their two sons, Brady and Chase, per Us Weekly. Fiorenza took to social media to blast his ex-wife for alienating him from his children. "Kids are not possessions, they are people. If you teach your kids to disline one parent, even if you were raised that way, it's like telling them they are half bad. In my opinion that is child abuse & not negotiable," he stated in a now-deleted Tweet. Fiorenza told his Twitter followers that he begged Hall to keep them in Chicago but she moved them anyway.

Things got even messier two months following Fiorenza's tweets. Hall praised "The Challenge: All Stars" player Kendal Darnell on social media, calling her "one of the most amazing humans," per Heavy. Fiorenza shared a screenshot of her tweet and wrote, "'Amazing humans' blah blah blah You refuse court ordered visitations & distance sons from their father. You make dishonest statements w/0 shame. Too much ... I NEVER missed a payment. Sit down." Fiorenza then shared a screenshot of a conversation between Hall and an unknown person where she claimed Fiorenza "lives in a 600sqft shack in the woods and doesn't support his kids." In April 2019, Fiorenza announced that he would be quitting "The Challenge" amid some of the "darkest days" of his life and was moving on to a new career.

Brad Fiorenza is working in the real world

Fans last saw Brad Fiorenza on "The Challenge: Vendettas" in 2018. Following his retirement from the competition, Fiorenza taught at an elementary school in Chicago and then tried his hand at being a DJ, per Chicago Tribune. "I was really strapped out after the divorce was finalized and I found myself really hard up to make money as a teacher," he told the publication. These days, Fiorenza is working as an underwriter in the insurance industry, according to his LinkedIn. He is currently employed at Prime Insurance Company as of 2019.

In 2022, Fiorenza came out of "The Challenge" retirement to battle it out on "All Stars 2." He came in ready to win but was eliminated along with his partner Jodi Weatherton, via Entertainment Weekly. Fiorenza came back for "The Challenge: All Stars 3 where he made it to the final and was so close to winning, but was overtaken by Wes Bergmann. Fiorenza has always been a fierce competitor and a fan favorite of "The Challenge" and hopefully he'll get to take some time off as an insurance underwriter to compete again.
