The Challenge Co-Star Hit On Wes Bergmann’s Wife, Amanda Hornick
In 2019, Wes joked Kyle Christie from ‘The Challenge’ was stalking his wife, Amanda on social media. On his Twitter, Hornick’s husband said he used to think Paulie [Calafiore] was crazy.
He further wrote,
“Like, Jesus Christ, Kyle couldn’t possibly be THAT obsessed with Cara [Maria Sorbello]. But now I know how he feels. Kyle is stalking my wife.”
The issue intensified when Kyle commented on one of Amanda Insta’s posts in February 2020. On Valentine’s Day, the Kansas City-born influencer had just shared imaging of her and Bergmann’s wedding day on Instagram to which Kyle commented, “Wish that was me.”
Wes replied to this with an angry face. Kyle even went as far as saying: “[Amanda] I love you too” along with a heart emoji. This became fodders for many tabloids but many considered it a mere joke considering Kyle, himself, was and has been a long-term relationship.
Her Husband Used His Prize Money Wisely
While participating in The Challenge, Amanda’s husband, Bergmann competed for cash prizes that often topped $100,000.
Wes used the prize money he made from The Challenge and other MTV appearances to be the lead investor of BetaBlox, a five-year-old Kansas City-based startup incubator.

So What About Hornick’s Net Worth?
While, unlike her husband, Amanda’s fortune doesn’t get that much attention, she presumably still must be earning a decent earning considering her Insta fame. Additionally, she has advocated for several lines of products from which she must have benefited quite well.
To put into perspective, yoga instructors in MO are typically known to rake in anywhere from $30k to $100k. Seeing her portfolio and popularity, Hornick very likely comes among those who earn near the latter figure. She plausibly cashes in the region of six figures or so from all her fitness knowledge.
