Gameplay

Fresh Meat

Bio: This diehard Bostonian feared that if he didn't stretch his wings and leave his hometown, he would never get a chance to fly. Fly he did, to Austin, only to receive two devastating blows. A bar brawl put him in the hospital and before he had even recovered his mother passed away. After the funeral, he returned to Austin to pursue a budding romance with his roommate Melinda. The relationship blossomed into an engagement. But will the relationship survive the pressures of the game?

The Inferno 3

Bio: This diehard Bostonian feared that if he didn't stretch his wings and leave his hometown, he would never get a chance to fly. Fly he did, to Austin, only to receive two devastating blows. A bar brawl put him in the hospital and before he had even recovered his mother passed away. After the funeral, he returned to Austin to pursue a budding romance with his roommate Melinda. Within days of getting engaged the happy couple along with fellow Austin roommates Wes and Johanna headed to Australia for the Fresh Meat Challenge. Their alliance worked to their disadvantage. The veterans immediately targeted them for exile -- a fuming Danny and his partner Ev were on the next plane home. With one Challenge under his belt, will Danny get the respect that he thinks he deserves?

The Gauntlet III

Bio: Despite arriving at the Challenge with high hopes, Danny's always coming up short. When the teams banded together to dissolve the Austin alliance at Fresh Meat, Danny and his partner Ev were the first to go. At The Inferno 3, Danny tried to establish himself as the vocal leader of the Bad Asses, but his quick temper sent him packing again. This time around, his bride-to-be Melinda is with him, but the two are on separate teams. With the game's new rules, we'll have to wait to find out if it'll help them survive, or tear them apart.

The Ruins

Bio: Danny has been happily married to fellow Challenge veteran, Melinda, for just over a year, after a courtship that began from the moment they first saw each other on The Real World: Austin. Danny has earned himself a reputation as a Challenge hot-head with a quick temper. Loud and ferocious, Danny has never been one to keep his opinions to himself. Despite his intensity on the playing field, Danny has yet to win a Challenge. Perhaps married life has focused Danny. Can he keep his cool and earn the prize on The Ruins?

Fresh Meat II

Bio: Last seen on The Ruins, veteran Danny returns on Fresh Meat II, dying for a win. A nice guy by day, when night falls, Danny often loses his temper and his sanity. Despite multiple tries, he has never won a Challenge and it's starting to eat at him. His goal is to buy a house for him and his wife, Real World: Austin alumni Melinda. Can Danny play it cool and win it all for his better half? Or will the pressures of the game release the beast and wreck his chances?

Battle of the Seasons (2012)

Bio: When Team Austin's Danny and Melinda met on their season it was love at first sight. They began dating and quickly captured the hearts of fans everywhere, who were mesmerized by their storybook romance. After their show ended, Danny proposed to Melinda and the two sweethearts tied the knot into wedded bliss. But nothing lasts forever... After a short time their fairy-tale ending came crashing down and the couple divorced. Now reunited and on the same team after three years apart, will Danny and Melinda be able to work together to win money? Melinda admits, "The whole Danny and Melinda relationship thing, I'm over it. But put $250,000 in front of anybody and you can definitely become friends with your ex." Rounding out Team Austin are Challenge newbie Lacey and elite veteran Wes, the game's notorious political mastermind. But how will Wes fare on a team with two divorcees and a rookie? Wes fears, "In my team it's difficult to say whether I'm a leader...or the glue. Danny and Melinda will never be fully over each other, and I don't know what to expect out of Lacey athletically." Wes' true incentive comes in the form of record-breaking game stats, as he brags, "When my team wins this Challenge, I will go down in history as being the person who has won more money from MTV than anybody else." Can Wes guide his team to victory? Or will Austin's complicated past ruin their chance of taking home the prize?
