Taylor Caniff was apparently supposed to star on 'The Reality House.'

In a vlog uploaded by Imari on Jan. 19, the content creator told fans that he was not originally cast on the popular digital competition series. "Honestly, I wasn't supposed to be on the show," he revealed. "Taylor Caniff was supposed to be on the show. He didn't do it for some reason."

While it's unclear why the former Vine star decided not to do the series, Taylor has been known throughout his career as a controversial internet celeb. 

In 2014, the 23-year-old was involved in a public feud with fellow YouTuber Tyler Oakley, who called him out for homophobic comments. "I'm not a homophobic in any way if your happy that's all that matters but this kid needs to stop trying to act like he owns the internet," Taylor tweeted in response.

In 2017, Tana Mongeau made a video titled, "Taylor Caniff is a transphobic piece of s--t." In the vlog, Tana called out the social media celeb calling him "problematic." Tana explained to fans in the video why she personally has a problem with Taylor, revealing that he would constantly reintroduce himself to her, even though they followed each other on social media.

She then talked about the homophobic comments he's made, such as calling people in the LGBTQ+ community the "f-word." Tana explained her friend and fellow YouTuber Corinna Kopf was living with Taylor for a bit because she was in a tight spot with money.

Concluding, "I think the world should know how shitty of a f--king person you are, if you wanna keep coming for me."

Well, we wonder if Taylor will possibly join Season 3 of The Reality House?

Who will be in Season 3 of 'The Reality House'?

"[Tana's] a really good friend... but she's very busy," Kian said on Access Hollywood. We asked her to be in a couple of things before and she's flaked for certain reasons. We actually asked her to be on Season 1... Season 2 came around and I think we asked her again, it was a no again. So, we got her best friend Imari, which is like Tana in a boy form."  

And, a few more famous faces could be joining the Season 3 cast. "We would for sure want Shane [Dawson], we would want Jeffree [Star] ... I've seen a lot of mentions saying they want to see James Charles in there," Kian revealed.

For now, we'll just anxiously wait to learn who will be joining the show for Season 3.
