Cory announced his departure from “The Challenge” in a November 2021 Instagram post, saying he wants to spend more time with his daughters.
“So, we took this picture right after I surprised Ryder at her T-ball game after finishing this season of the challenge.
I recall picking up that dandelion with Ryder and telling him, “OK, now we have to blow on it and make a wish.”
“I just remember Ryder blowing on it and her saying, ‘I hope you don’t go back on the challenge,’ and I knew right then that I needed to leave the show,” Cory wrote in the caption.
Cory revealed on Instagram that his daughters played a major role in his decision to leave.
“It’s a sign,” he wrote in the post, “when my four-year-old tells me daddy I don’t want you to go and my other one-year-old couldn’t even recognize me when I came home from double agents.”
Cory came in second place in the 36th season of “The Challenge.”
In the comments, fans of the reality TV star expressed their support for his decision.
“Going to miss you on the show Cory!!!! But family first,” one fan wrote on Instagram. “Amazing human and father choosing your family is everything [red heart emoji].”
Cory has two children.
