Abram’s Wife Rachel Recently Opened Up About Struggles She Faced With His Family
Abram’s wife Rachel has posted about the challenges she’s faced with some of his family members, writing in March, “My time in Montana has been a combination of beautiful & dark moments. The confidence & self acceptance I have was not easily gained, I’ve worked very hard to enjoy my light. However that very confidence trigged insecurities in other women within my boyfriends family, therefore making me responsible & a problem.”
She wrote that her engagement was “undermined by passiveness & actions secretly taken to try & dig up dirt on me.” She shared that she experienced racism, “mostly passive,” with “Close people to my husband promoting white supremacy… Mentally I was drowning,” she wrote. “My husband saw my darkest moment and saved my life. The decisions we make will be for our family.”
In October, Rachel wrote that the couple was originally expecting twins but in the first trimester they experienced a “vanishing twin,” which meant that her body was only able to support one baby and the second fetus was absorbed into the uterine wall. “We had gotten so attached to the idea of twins and mourned the loss of what could have been. Now we continue to celebrate what is, the beautiful life growing healthy and strong.”
Abram Appeared on 9 Seasons of ‘The Challenge’ & Has Made It to 4 Finals, Winning 2
Abram made his reality TV debut on Road Rules: South Pacific and then joined The Challenge for The Gauntlet, his first of nine appearances on the competition show. He made it to four finals in total, The Inferno which he won, The Inferno II, The Inferno 3 which he also won, and Cutthroat.
His last appearance was a turbulent one as he joined the cast of The Challenge: Battle of the Bloodlines in 2016 with his brother Mike as replacements for Tony and Shane Raines after Tony was medically disqualified in episode four. Before Abram’s appearance on the show, his girlfriend at the time, Cara Maria Sorbello, was rumored to have kissed her costar, Thomas Buell.
His appearance shocked the cast and caused a lot of drama in the house as Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio plotted about how to use the rumors about Cara Maria to destabilize Abram’s game since Abram and his brother were seen as major threats. The two ended up getting eliminated after mercenaries Zach Nichols and Chris “CT” Tamburello appeared for the elimination. Abram and Cara Maria broke up for good shortly after Battle of the Bloodlines.
