The Island

Bio: Southern charmer Cohutta arrives to his first challenge determined to make it to the end. Since Sydney, his romantic relationship with KellyAnne has ended, but the two continue to have a strong connection. Now that Cohutta finds himself marooned on a tropical beach, he knows that KellyAnne will be a distraction from the competition, but he's not sure whether that will be an advantage or disadvantage. Now matter what, though, Cohutta is sure to relish his time on The Island.

The Ruins

Bio: A lovable country bumpkin that we first met in The Real World: Sydney, Cohutta charmed his way into KellyAnne's heart, but their romance quickly ended after returning home. On The Island, Cohutta proved that while they were no longer together, he could be a loyal friend to KellyAnne in a Challenge. But how will Cohutta react when his ex-girlfriend shows up with her new man, Wes? Since The Island, Cohutta has been hanging out with Challenge alum, Ace, bartending and traveling. Don't count Cohutta out for being the smallest guy on The Ruins -- he is stronger than you might expect.

Bio: It’s been six seasons since Cohutta competed in The Ruins, but this country boy returns to The Challenge a little older and a whole lot wiser. Cohutta elaborates, “I feel like I’ve grown up a lot mentally. I don’t necessarily feel like a rookie because I feel like life has taught me a wide range of things that it hasn’t taught these kids yet.” Although Cohutta has the speed and agility to perform well in challenges, his small stature could prove to be a disadvantage. Still, Cohutta is optimistic, “I really get a lot out of coming in as an underdog. When you’re the smallest guy by 30 pounds you’re an underdog every time.” Fresh out of a long-term relationship, Cohutta may find solace in the arms of a vivacious vixen. Watch out for this dark horse—he just may outrun the alpha dogs.

Battle of the Bloodlines

Bio: Southern charmer Cohutta returns with his countrified cousin Jill, for another shot at Challenge glory. Everyone is quickly intimidated by Jill’s farmhand physique and reveres this team’s versatility. Jill moved heaven and Earth (and her wedding) to support Cohutta and the mounting pressure threatens to take its toll. Cohutta stresses, “Jill's given up a lot for this. She's postponed her wedding and if I lose, we go home with nothing.” Hoping to send his Bloodline back with a healthy dowry, Cohutta works every angle to keep them in the game. These two rough and rowdy competitors learn fast that it’ll take more than politics to plow through the game.
