Bravo Stars Who Should Compete on The Traitors

The Traitors Season 2 is underway, and I am thrilled. I adore host Alan Cumming and his incredible fashion. And the castle in Scotland is the perfectly creepy locale for this game. Alan secretly chose two contestants, Big Brother star Dan Gheesling and The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Phaedra Parks, to be Traitors. Then, this duo selected Survivor’s “Black Widow,” Parvati Shallow, to join their blood-thirsty ranks.

The rest of the cast, made up mostly of reality television vets, are Faithfuls. Every night the Traitors murder a Faithful. And each night, after a round table discussion, a contestant is voted out. If Faithfuls make it to the end of the game, they will split $250,000. But if a sneaky Traitor is in their midst, the Traitor keeps all the cash. Ka-ching!

While this season is still unfolding, I couldn’t help but think about next season’s casting. Let’s take a look at some Bravo stars who should compete on The Traitors.

James Kennedy – Vanderpump Rules

It is no secret that Vanderpump Rules star James Kennedy is skilled at lying and manipulative behavior. After all, he admitted that he slept with Kristen Doute to get on Pump Rules. He also has a temper and is prone to making shady comments and starting arguments. I don’t know how long this DJ would last on The Traitors, but I’d love to see him popping off at the round table.

Daisy Kelliher is the fan-favorite chief stew on Below Deck Sailing Yacht. She pays attention to the details and makes sure that the guests are happy. Daisy is truly one of the best chief stews to ever manage the interior.

Her ability to read people is a huge bonus. Daisy also has an incredibly serene poker face when dealing with chaos on the superyacht. She would make an excellent competitor on The Traitors.

Monica Garcia – The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City

During the Season 4 finale of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, “OG” Heather Gay exposed newbie Monica Garcia as part of the snarky account, Reality Von Tease. This account had allegedly been trashing the RHOSLC cast members. Everyone was shocked.

Monica didn’t admit her involvement right away. She tried to slither out of it. Finally, she confirmed that she was indeed involved in the account. But Monica still denied attacking her co-stars.

It was mind-boggling how Monica managed to cozy up to the cast, often acting vulnerable to win their sympathy. But in reality, she had betrayed them without batting an eyelash. The ease with which Monica lied and deceived her co-stars makes her a perfect candidate to appear on The Traitors. After all, she has already shown us her traitorous side.

It was an iconic moment when Heather outed Monica for being part of the infamous Reality Von Tease account. She revealed the details masterfully during her speech. Who will ever forget Heather exclaiming she had the “receipts, proof, timeline, screenshots, f**king everything!” 

Heather would be a great pick for next season’s cast. She is smart and friendly, but also very observant. Heather would excel as either a Faithful or a Traitor on the show. As a Traitor, no one would suspect her, and she would fly under the Faithful’s radar.

Shep Rose – Southern Charm

Shep Rose’s escapades as a playboy in Charleston, South Carolina have kept viewers tuning in to Southern Charm. He can be charming, and interesting, and gets along well with others. But he also was known for his partying ways. He cheated on his former girlfriend, Taylor Ann Green, and then told her that his affair was enjoyable.

Shep’s ease with spouting off fabrications would be an advantage in this game. Just like his ability to get along with others would boost his social game, making him a worthy opponent.

Candiace Dillard Bassett – The Real Housewives of Potomac

Candiace Dillard Bassett from The Real Housewives of Potomac isn’t afraid to confront anyone, and she is known for her legendary reads. If she sniffed out a possible Traitor, she wouldn’t hesitate to come for that contestant. The cast would need to buckle up if Candiace decided to unleash one of her reads at the round table. That would be epic!

I don’t think that the group could slide anything by Candiace, and for that reason, she would be quite an opponent.

Teresa Giudice – The Real Housewives of New Jersey

Teresa Giudice is the “OG” on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. She is well-known for her spicy temper. Just ask her former RHONJ co-star Danielle Staub and that innocent table that Teresa flipped.

She has allegedly schemed to embarrass her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga. Oh yes—remember “strippergate?” And let’s not forget that Teresa also served 11 months in prison for fraud. Plus, she is physically fit and would excel in physical challenges.

While I’m not sure that Teresa could pull off being a Traitor, I think watching her interrogate her co-stars would be incredibly entertaining.

All of these Bravolebrities have qualities that would make them excellent contestants for this devious show. The stars’ ability to deceive, their tempers, and their social gameplay would make them all threats. These Bravo stars really should compete on The Traitors. They would slay. Literally.
