Bio: Aneesa is definitely not afraid to say what's on her mind. She crushed Theo's dreams of hooking up in Chicago when she told him she thinks "girls are nice." On the first Battle of the Sexes, Aneesa's backstabbing ways ultimately got her voted off. She returned to Battle of the Sexes 2, vowing "all love" that time around. Well, she showed Mark some love on The Gauntlet 2 with a birthday lap dance -- is that what she meant? She earned her spot as team captain after an intimidated Beth refused to "Beach Brawl" in the Gauntlet with Aneesa. Unfortunately getting rid of Beth didn't win the final mission for the Vets and they left empty handed. Will Aneesa leave this Challenge with the grand prize loot or be sent home empty handed?

Well, she showed Mark some love on The Gauntlet 2 with a birthday lap dance -- is that what she meant? She earned her spot as team captain after an intimidated Beth refused to "Beach Brawl" in the Gauntlet with Aneesa. Surprisingly on The Duel, Aneesa aligned herself with Beth (who would have guessed?), Svetlana, Wes and Nehemiah, but unfortunately their alliance was destroyed by the "drama mafia." She and Svetlana took turns taking out all of the female competition, but found themselves facing each other in the last women's Duel. Svetlana called Aneesa's bluff and sent her home just before the final mission. Will Aneesa's strong will to survive get her to the end of The Inferno 3?
Bio: Another veteran of the games, Aneesa is not afraid to speak her mind, make an alliance or pull the rug out from under another competitor. She's the real deal. Since her last turn in the challenges, she had successful knee surgery which "has made my life easier," according to Aneesa. She'd dancing again and has plans to move to New York City to pursue a career in music while returning to school. Now she's also ready to take on all comers in New Zealand for a shot at the prize. Will Aneesa prevail in this round of The Duel?
Bio: Challenge legend Aneesa has won more elimination rounds than most players have even seen. Surviving eliminations is nice, but winning a final is better, and first place is what this Real World: Chicago alum is gunning for this season on Rivals. This time around, Aneesa will be forced to cooperate with an old enemy in order to take down a younger, tougher crop of Challenge girls. Will Aneesa's renowned invincibility get her to the end? Or will a new generation of upstarts prove too much for this undisputed queen of eliminations?
Bio: On the Battle of the Sexes, Aneesa and Rachel met and were instantly drawn to each other. Rachel reminisces, "In a nutshell, me and Aneesa had like a little short love affair and then she just didn't treat me the way I wanted to be treated and it didn't work out." Later, Aneesa and Rachel came to blows on The Duel II when Aneesa called out Rachel for toying with her emotions after spying on Jenn and Rachel kissing in the bathroom. Aneesa fumes, "I had an issue with the fact that, you don't come and have sex with me and then go and have sex with someone else when you know that I loved you. Rachel rebuts by claiming that their hook up was seven years and ago. Years later, Rachel updates, "Aneesa and I worked out all of our skeletons in the closet and now we've really come to a place where we're just really good friends." Now that this pair are on good terms will they communicate better as friends than they ever did as lovers?
Bio: Aneesa and Diem's rivalry was born on The Duel, when Aneesa chose Diem to go into elimination after promising to keep her safe. Diem ended up going home and giving Aneesa the silent treatment. Diem recalls, "It's been a long time, but once someone makes you not trust them, it's hard to regain that." Since we last saw Diem in the finals of Battle of the Exes, she successfully beat ovarian cancer a second time and is now in remission. But despite her fighting spirit, Diem still struggles with confidence and reverts to old patterns when she hooks up with former flame CT! Aneesa is skeptical of her romantic reunion, explaining, "Anyone who messes with CT is playing with fire. Emotionally, she could be setting herself up for failure." Diem may seem angelic, but this veteran has a tilted halo...and perhaps a devil on her shoulder.
Bio: Talk about an unstoppable force, “Elimination Queen” Aneesa arrives on Free Agents after a devastating exit one spot short of the Rivals II final. Aneesa is brimming with confidence going into Free Agents, “Doubt me all you want. I'm more about being humble and letting my actions speak for themselves. I have the heart and fight. I don't, I never quit. Ever.” Aneesa may be a threat on the field, but this opinionated vet can rub some of her housemates the wrong way. Will Aneesa be able to fight her way to the top? Or will she face another crushing elimination?
Bio: No matter how hard she tries, drama-magnet Aneesa always gets pulled into the emotional crossfire. Returning to the Challenge after several close brushes with victory, Aneesa brings along her live-wire cousin, Rianna, hoping she can help guide her safely through the precarious minefield of Challenge politics and focused on the competition. Aneesa emphasizes, “We need to take care of each other here and we need to lay as low as possible; we don't need any unnecessary drama or targets on our backs. If somebody messes with her, I’ll handle it.” However, Aneesa breaks her own rules when she catches feelings for a rookie, while Rianna snuggles up with a challenger of her own. Torn between siding with her fellow veterans and indulging in some rookie nookie, Aneesa finds herself once again at the epicenter of explosive drama that she’ll need her and Rianna to settle fast.
Bio: Challenge veteran Aneesa is no stranger to drama and dirty play. On Rivals, she wasted no time by saying both Laurel and Cara Maria’s names in deliberations for the first elimination, and on Rivals II, a pretty nasty scuffle erupted when Trishelle provoked her.
Bio: Fiery, outspoken and bold, Aneesa Ferreira never shies away from a challenge or the drama of the competition that comes with it. Although Ferreira has appeared on twelve seasons on The Challenge and still has yet to take home a win, no one can deny her sheer determination and strength, which she always proves in eliminations. Ferreira also plays a strong reality game, knowing when to flirt with the players to get them on her side, fight for alliances, and mess with rookies’ heads. Champs vs. Stars might be just what this fireball needs to finally come out on top.
Bio: Back again and still holding the record for the most Challenge appearances, Aneesa is a Challenge legend in her own right, even if she is still waiting to take home that elusive grand prize. Once nicknamed the 'Elimination Queen,' this feisty and flirtatious competitor is no stranger to playing a little dirty in competition, and there has never been a challenge that Aneesa hasn't met head on with heart and determination. Knowing her game is strong with these vets and new Stars, will this finally be the time for Aneesa to grab that win she's been waiting for? The charity she'll be playing for is RAINN.
