That was pretty much our reaction when we first watched this exclusive clip from this week’s episode of MTV’s The Challenge: XXX, where Aneesa Ferreira drops a rather massive truth bomb: Her ex-girlfriend, former Challenge champ Rachel Robinson, and current competitor Veronica Portillo dated… for three years!

The whole reveal begins when Aneesa shouts across the pool, “You are so f–king beautiful, Veronica. I’d f–k you. And that’s it. That’s what it really comes to. Her ex-girlfriend is my ex-girlfriend.”

Cory, another of Aneesa’s exes, is confused, so she goes on to explain that they both dated Rachel, who last did a season of The Challenge in 2012 and recently announced she is expecting twins with her partner.

“I feel honestly bad for Rachel for me to come back years later and talk about it when I didn’t talk about when we’re together, I feel like that’s really disrespectful,” Veronica says in a confessional.

None of this, however, changes the fact that the clip ends with Aneesa and Veronica, who first met on Battle of the Sexes in 2002, slipping away together…

The Challenge: XXX airs Tuesdays on MTV. The show moves to 10 p.m. ET starting Tuesday.
