Wharton Will Be Battling Chase Demoor
Wharton will be up against Chase Demoor, a social media sensation and reality TV star who competed on “Too Hot To Handle.”
In an interview with Marie Claire, the outlet explained that Demoor introduces himself as a pro football player.
“I’m tall, dark, handsome, muscular, smart, plus being a professional football player does help…”
DeMooor has 1.1 million followers on TikTok, where he is known as King Chase. While he isn’t actually part of the NFL, DeMoor does play for the Houston Linemen in the Spring League.
He played football for the College of Siskiyous and Central Washington University and college bowl games.
In a later interview, per Marie Claire, Demoor transparently shared stories about his youth and how he came to be who he is today. He explained, “I lost my dad when I was 10 years old and was raised with my mom and her abusive husband at the time; I was fortunate enough to choose to make this a blessing in my life as an understanding that this was not the way I wanted to live my life so I worked to make sure I left for college and pursued a college and athletic career. I feel as my dad watches over me and I will do whatever it takes to make him proud.”
Wharton on ‘The Challenge’
In addition to being part of “Teen Mom,” Wharton has competed on MTV’s “The Challenge.”
According to Cheat Sheet, he competed in “Battle of the Bloodlines” with his cousin Mitch Reid, finishing second and earning $37,500.
He later made his way back for the “Invasion of the Champions,” where he won two eliminations and placed third.
In May, Wharton told E! News about returning to the show, “I think my mindset is number one, I gotta make sure the family is okay… As long as all my kids are healthy and we’re in a good place. I can’t do the next season because of the pregnancy.”
Speaking about “The Challenge” in general, he added, “I love doing the show. It gets me going and I want to come back… I think my big return—MTV you hear this?—season 40 for $2 million cash prize. I’m winning. What a better story? Cory with three kids comes back. He’s always getting second place. Now he wins a million. I will definitely be back.”
