Laterrian revealed he had nightmares after going home from Season 2
On the podcastLaterrian told the co-hosts, “It’s crazy because like the competitor in me, and that’s true more after Season 2 than Season 1, I literally had nightmares like this and stuff.” He added:
It messed me up mentally like I’m there and then I’m coming home. And although MJ [Garrett] and i’m very cool now and friends i literally woke up from a nightmare hitting my pillow thinking it was mj and it was just a dream.
Laterrian told Aneesa and Tori that he might need therapy, but either way it seemed like the right time to step away from “The Challenge” and focus on other things in his life. The co-hosts told him he wasn’t the only one struggling to adjust after a “challenge” and he said it was good to hear because he was feeling “weak”.
He said he knows the show is a game, but he doesn’t like voting against people he likes or having to form alliances. “Maybe I’m just not built for it,” he said. Laterrian also shared that missing the finals twice was a tough pill for a competitor, and he was keen to contest a final against the best, especially since he won the mini-final in Season 1.
Laterrian appeared in 3 seasons of The Challenge and the first 2 All Stars spinoffs
Laterrian made his reality television debut on “Road Rules: Maximum Velocity Tour” and appeared on three seasons of “The Challenge” during his stint on the regular show. He made it to the finals of his rookie season, Extreme Challenge, then appeared in Battle of the Sexes and The Gauntlet, but failed to win a Challenge.
After a very long hiatus, Laterrian, 44, was one of the cast members selected to return for the All Stars spin-off. He did really well and became a fan favorite, but after being chosen as an elimination partner by Katie Cooley, the two were sent home.
Laterrian returned for the second season of All Stars and was also seen as a strong competitor, siding with the Royal Palace from the start. However, Laterrian lost his partner Kendal Sheppard and was paired with Jasmine Reynaud, with the two being eliminated soon after.
All Stars season 3 is only a month away and the cast said it was filmed shortly after season 2 and before Laterrian’s retirement announcement, giving fans one last chance to see the competitor.
