Spoiler alert: This story contains spoilers for the Wednesday, February 1st episode of MTV’s “The Challenge: Ride or Die.”

During the 38 seasons of The Challenge, there have been quite a few injuries along the way.

Kaiser and partner Horacio Gutiérrez Jr. were the only pair of rookies to make it to the 100-hour final, but not one but two major setbacks forced them to retire before reaching the finish line.

First, during a game of toss, the shackle connecting the string to the ball got caught in Kaiser’s finger and cut it open.

“My finger slipped under the clip and when I threw it, it dug into my finger and ripped off the top of my finger. The nerve was sticking out and dangling – a small white nerve. I thought I broke hit it because it hit my bone,” she told type Before the episode premieres.

Still, as paramedics bandaged her fingers, she continued to help her partner drink “sewage,” which she described as “warm ranch clam chowder and fish guts” that “smells like rotting tuna or a dumpster.” bottom of”.

Kaiser didn’t give up and moved on to the next level. First, they had to carry multiple tires, which caused her fingers to get dirty and open.

She and Gutierrez then had a slingshot challenge, in which they each hit a target twice. However, due to her injury, she had trouble pulling the sling far enough. Once, her hand slipped and the ball bounced back, hitting her straight in the face.

“so, [the medics] Made me sit again behind the tire because it was filthy,” she said. “They knew I was going to have a tough time going on, but they cleaned it up with this embalming agent, and it really hurt, to be honest. I’m screaming. I’ve never felt that much pain. It hurts more than my face. So, since I sit down to wash my fingers, we’re in a hurry. “

Since she didn’t want to disappoint her partner, Caesar said she was rushing through the checkpoint – which is what led to the accident.

“I remember seeing it out of the corner of my eye and I think the side of the slingshot was kind of twisted. I just went to pull a golf ball back and obviously, as you can see – they took the damn camera All that! — but it really came back, and it shook me to the core. I was whipped, it was crazy,” she recalls. “I thought my tooth had been knocked out because the impact was so strong. It felt like my nose was literally crooked out of my face. I remember putting my nose back in place a little bit because it didn’t feel right, So I pressed it back. I licked my teeth to make sure they were all there, and immediately had a migraine.”

Caesar said she was terrified because she was in Argentina, where she didn’t speak the language and didn’t know the area. Plus, she knew how serious the injury could be.

“I was like, if I really had brain swelling, I might die. It’s not a joke. People die from traumatic head injuries all the time. I was really, in some crazy way, lucky to hit straight My eyes. Obviously, even if I get hit in the bull’s-eye, I still have good aim,” she said with a laugh. “If it hits my eye, I either lose my eye or die because the golf ball could go back behind my eyeball.”

Caesar was able to keep her cool at first because she didn’t want to show how much pain she was in and wished she could still go on somehow – despite the blood everywhere. “Then I started whimpering when they told me, ‘Olivia, you’re done. Get in the ambulance,'” she recalls.

The former “Love Island” star spent two nights in hospital but was anxious to get home. First, as shown in the episode, she does a confession, with a broken nose and two black eyes—that’s with makeup on. A few days later, she had to return to hospital after the swelling caused blurred vision. While things are back to normal now, she spends a lot of time worrying that won’t be the case.

“I’ve been thinking about it my whole life. I was like, ‘Am I permanently hurt for the rest of my life because of the TV show? Say. “My finger doesn’t look that bad, and I haven’t been talked about much because of my face, but it’s more than just a small cut. I mean, I’ve never seen my flesh pulled out. It’s too Disturbing.”

Gutiérrez wanted to go on alone and volunteered to do double the work, but the rules were clear: you were either alive or dead on the road. So, he had to go home. While the ending was tough for both of them, Caesar wanted her to be invited back.

“I was traumatized. As much as I wanted to be a tough guy, it hurt because we really worked hard. I just repeated self-loathing, and I ruined everything. There was a time when I felt bad, and I didn’t Determining how my face was going to heal because I had a really bad scar on my forehead. I thought I would never look the same again. I’ve been fighting not being able to look like myself,” she said. “Every time I look in the mirror, it’s a flashback to something that happened to me. I didn’t try to be dramatic because it wasn’t that serious, but in the same sense it’s because it wasn’t anyone Anything that can be prepared.”

Kaiser continued: “I’m really scared because it shows that although they take a lot of safety precautions, you never know. Weird accidents happen. But fear never stopped me. If I had the chance, I would Definitely going back. I’m going to go back and redeem myself and everyone who supported me.”
