‘The Challenge’ Star Johnny Bananas Crashes the Stage at the MTV Movie & TV Awards

Moment was cut from Monday’s broadcast

“The Challenge” star Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio pulled a Kanye at the MTV Movie & TV Awards taping over the weekend, rushing the stage to interrupt a speech.

The long-running MTV competition show was nominated in the “Reality Royalty” at the pre-taped show, but ultimately lost out to VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.” As the cast was taking the stage to be presented with their award, Devenanzio unexpectedly seized the mic instead and delivered his own acceptance speech.

“We finally won! After all these years, it’s about time MTV finally gives ‘The Challenge’ the recognition it deserves,” Devenanzio said, according to The Blast. “All the other shows that got nominated are essentially paying rent in the genre we created.”

The moment was cut from Monday’s broadcast, with the “Love & Hip-Hop” cast appearing to take the stage immediately after “RuPaul’s Drag Race” star Trixie Mattel’s bit with “Big Mouth’s” Nick Kroll.

Other winners on Monday’s broadcast included “Captain Marvel” star Brie Larson, Sandra Bullock for her “frightened” performance in the Netflix original film “Bird Box” and “A Star Is Born’s” Lady Gaga.
