MTV's 'The Challenge': Meet Wes Bergmann's Wife Amanda!


Feb. 12 2021, Updated 11:20 a.m. ET

MTV’s The Challenge is known for the intense drama that unfolds each week, and one of the biggest “villains” in the show’s history is Wes Bergmann. Fans were first introduced to the 35-year-old in 2005 during the Real World: Austin.

Since appearing on the series, he has made a reputation for himself as being a pot stirrer on The Challenge, and also Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio's sworn enemy for more than a decade. Though, this season, audiences got to see the two unite for the first time. 

While Wes may not be a popular housemate amongst his fellow Challenge co-stars, he really only cares about one person’s opinion, and that would be his wife, Amanda Hornick. 

In June 2018, Wes married Amanda surrounded by his Real World co-stars — Lacey Buehler, Rachel Moyal, Nehemiah Clark, and Melinda Stolp. The two got engaged in 2016 after the reality star popped the question to his girlfriend of two years during a Kansas City Royals game. So, here’s what to know about Wes’ bae.

Wes Bergmann's wife, Amanda, is a yoga teacher. 

Though he lost in an elimination round to Bananas after volunteering to go in to earn his red skull, he graciously accepted his defeat. While he did not win the grand prize, we're sure he wasn't too upset about leaving Prague and heading home to his wife. 

But, we're sure while Wes was away for "work," Amanda was busy with her own business ventures. According to her Instagram, Amanda regularly teaches yoga classes, as well as hosts events.

"One of the greatest gifts my yoga practice & yoga teaching has given me is connection. Sharing breath, sweat, physical touch, strength & struggle... it’s helped me realize that there is a time and place for texts, emails, Instagram..." she captioned a photo of herself teaching a class, "but the real magic is when we put our phones down, look each other in the eyes, show up and are seen by others as we truly are."

You should follow Amanda on Instagram ASAP. 

Seemingly opposite from her spouse, Amanda likes to maintain a positive image on social media, where she goes by @nomastaryinkc. She frequently posts about love, life, and maintaining a good balance.

Aside from working as a yoga instructor, Amanda regularly uploads pictures of her daily life in Kansas City. The influencer adds a mixture of body positivity posts, food pics, and photos with her husband. She recently posted an Instagram pic of the couple from their wedding day. 

"Two years down, in the blink of an eye. There have been hard times & great times & everything in between, but at the end of the day there’s no one I’d rather have by my side through all of it. When you have love as your foundation you can do hard things. Happy anniversary to my ginger bear... you make me better! 6.1.18," she captioned the gorgeous pic.

Catch new episodes of The Challenge: Total Madness on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
