Invasion of the Champions

Bio: With one season and one devastating loss under his belt, tough as nails Nelson is ready to take the reins and steer himself to victory. Growing up on the wrong side of the tracks, Nelson desperately hopes to prove that an inner city kid can rise above and shape his own destiny. He explains, “I came from poverty, I didn't think I was going to college. I fought every day. I did not give up, and I turned my life around. I'm here to win. Point blank.” Roaring and ready to go, Nelson vows to take on anyone and anything in order to be the best. But when tensions rise and another Underdog’s game backs Nelson into a corner, his red-hot temper will flare. Will Nelson be able to put his pride aside and let sleeping dogs lie? Or will this cocky competitor blow his chances by biting off more than he can chew?

XXX: Dirty 30

Bio: Throughout Invasion of the Champions, Nelson touted his loyalty to his alliance. But as the number of folks from his inner circle dwindled, so did Nelson’s devotion. In a three-way elimination, Nelson made a secret double deal: one with his best friend Cory and another with Shane. The knife in Cory’s back was just what Nelson needed to propel himself into the final.

Vendettas

Bio: Nelson is determined to prove that someone from his original MTV show (aka Are You the One?) is capable of winning The Challenge. On Invasion of the Champions, he made it to the Final and captured an impressive second place (only seconds behind CT). Like his pal Cory, Nelson is determined to knock out veterans like Bananas. Will he make history and finally prove Are You the One? folks can be champions? Or will the old guard come together to knock down this emerging threat?

Bio: Shane and Nelson competed alongside one another as Underdogs on The Challenge: Invasion of the Champions.

Will their history of anger be kicked to the curb to earn each of them their first Challenge win?
