The Gauntlet III

Bio: Of all the new players to appear on The Gauntlet III, Derek comes in with instant respect. Sporting a massively muscular frame, Derek was recruited by more than 200 colleges for his football prowess. It's unlikely that his own team will choose him for the Gauntlet, but with no connections on the Veteran's squad, it's likely he'll have to pay his dues. If only he can find a Veteran girl to help him out...

The Duel II

Bio: He was possibly the strongest member of the Rookies team on The Gauntlet III, but Derek didn't survive a puzzling challenge, and got sent packing halfway through to the finale. Since then, he's been bartending, playing poker, golf, football, bowling, waterskiing, playing videogames and partying with friends. He says he's still the same "happy-go-lucky" guy Challenge fans have come to know and love, with a few small business ideas in the works. But those are all on hold as Derek is heading to New Zealand for another shot at the prize. Will he be able to use his nice guy attitude to win over alliances, then use his athleticism to excel in the torturous challenges? If anyone's got a chance, it's Derek.
