Laurel Stucky Husband
Laurel Stucky is not married so she doesn’t have a husband. But, her relationship with Jordan Wiseley caught her attention time and again.
The Challenge: Free Agents premiered in the spring of 2014, while filming began during the holidays in 2013. In March, it looked like their connection was more than just a show. Jordan captioned a photo of him and Laurel kissing, “Oh snap, hope my gf doesn’t get mad at this.”
Laurel responded to the tweet with “LOL,” while fans of the series cheered on their relationship. One user wrote, “Best couple + players! Hope y’all the best and hope ya’ll are still dating.” They declared that they were still dating and making the long-distance relationship work during the reunion episode, which aired in June.
But that was the last time we heard from Laurel and Jordan. Jordan flew down to Panama as a contender in Battle of the Exes 2 when he returned to The Challenge. Laurel did not. He was paired with Sarah Rice, with whom Jordan had a brief relationship during Rivals II. Sarah and Jordan won the season after crushing the final course in Norway. Following that, both Laurel and Jordan left the show, and it’s probable that most Challenge viewers have forgotten they ever existed.
Laurel returned to the program in a big way during Invasion of the Champions, where she came out as bisexual and briefly dated Nicole Zanatta. However, War of the Worlds II is Jordan’s first return to the series since Dirty XXX.
When fellow cast members Jenna Compono and Zach Nichols married on 2 April 2022, Laurel and Jordan made headlines by appearing cozy with each other.
On Reddit, fans of MTV’s The Challenge saw a few posts implying Jordan and Laurel were getting close during Jenna Compono and Zach Nichols’ wedding. A Reddit user pointed out that Nany González’s Instagram Stories showed a large group of Challenge cast members sharing a hotel room. Jordan can be seen sitting by Laurel with his arms around her in one of the Instagram Stories. Laurel is on the ground.
“They’re all sharing a hotel room it seems (Nany, Marie, Kaycee, Jordan, and Laurel) and at the end of her story, she’s turning the camera to show everyone and you see Laurel and Jordan being all really close, and cuddly,” the Reddit user wrote. “Is it just me or does it seem flirtatious to anyone else?”
“They actually dated for a year outside the show,” another Redditor added. “Jordan said so on a podcast.”
“If you watch Laurel’s story, she posted a photo in sweats and the vest Jordan wore while driving in Ukraine,” another Reddit user wrote. “All this is easy to read into but is not definitive proof.”
She was also allegedly linked to Nicole Zanatta and Stephen Bear.
