A Challenge Champ Is Dating One Of The Real Housewives

The 'Road Rules' alum met his new lady after they appeared on each other's podcasts.

Theo Von was always known for his humor during his Road Rules: Maximum Velocity Tour tenure and subsequent Challenge appearances -- and now the MTV alum is romancing a fellow reality star and making her smile.

The Gauntlet and Battle of the Sexes 2 victor -- who last appeared on MTV back in 2006 during Fresh Meat -- is currently dating Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville, according to People.

"It's early on, but they seem to be getting along great and truly connecting with one another," a source told the mag about the new lovebirds, who first met after she was a guest on his podcast "Allegedly with Theo Von & Matthew Cole Weiss" and re-connected when he stopped by her podcast "Brandi Glanville: Unfiltered."

Understandably, Brandi is drawn to Theo's wit -- and the two have "solid chemistry," the same insider added. Oh la la...

Here's to the new couple -- and for a fun rewind, relive Theo taking the Gauntlet crown with his RR teammates in the clip below.
