Fresh Meat II

Bio: Although this is Theresa's first time on a Challenge, don't expect this ravishing rookie to cower around the veterans. Theresa promises that if she's tested, she will "box a bitch." This fiery Latina lady can also compete. When it comes to men, Theresa claims she is laid back and doesn't do drama, asserting that she'll focus on the game instead. Will she stick to her script and keep a cool head around all the muscular man candy? Or will a house full of hunks change her tune?

Bio: Theresa entered the world of The Challenge with a splash, finding herself in the middle of a love triangle on Fresh Meat II. No longer a rookie, she does not intend to make the same mistake twice, professing, "I learned on Fresh Meat II to keep your mind on the game and stay focused." Instead of hooking up, Theresa is intent on playing hard and winning. But with fifteen handsome men surrounding her, will this Puerto Rican beauty really be able to keep her mind on the game?

Bio: Theresa first appeared in Fresh Meat II, where the Milwaukee resident stood out for her height, athleticism, and fondness for the boys. But having two seasons under her belt, Theresa now realizes that Challenges aren't all fun and games. Theresa explains, "You have to stay focused and not just let the social aspect of the game get the best of you." This season she plans to keep her eye on the ball and steer clear of drama. But Theresa's plans might be thwarted by a loud and scrappy partner with a tendency to rub others the wrong way.

Rivals II

Bio: What could possibly fill a 90 lb. girl with so much rage that she put her hand through a mirror? Well, her name is "Theresa." Jasmine recalls, "I just looked in the mirror and saw Theresa and just knocked it clean in one hit. If she keeps it up with me it might be her face this time." Although both claim to have mellowed and matured since nearly coming to blows, this feisty pair is still as combustible as fuel meeting flame. Jasmine arrives in Thailand reeling from her father's death and is determined to win this Challenge in his memory while Theresa hopes to finally learn how to separate emotions from the game. She explains, "I have a history of having a temper and I just have to prove that's not who I am and that's not what I'm about." However, Theresa's plans for redemption may be foiled when she hooks up with a big game player, sending shock waves through the house. Can this volatile pair keep it together? Or is another seven years of bad luck in their future?

Free Agents

Bio: Returning for her fifth challenge, Theresa is optimistic about her chances in Free Agents. Hampered in past games by relationship drama and unreliable partners, Theresa is ready to let her impressive athletic abilities speak for themselves. She explains, “Since my friends usually always screw me over in this game, I love that I can rely on myself and only myself.” Theresa may be comfortable with the physical aspects of The Challenge, but she’ll have to dig deep to harness the mental toughness it takes to win. Theresa notes, “If you get me riled up, I don’t keep my cool.” Will Free Agents give Theresa the opportunity to shine? Or is she one outburst away from a plane ticket home?

Battle of the Exes II

Bio: Political mastermind Wes met a young and naïve Theresa on Fresh Meat II, where they had a hot make-out session on the pool table. However, their relationship took a turn when Wes failed to pursue Theresa once their show ended. Wes claims, “She got hurt by the fact that I didn’t want to be in any sort of relationship after we had a crush on each other.” On Rivals II, a jealous Wes took note of Theresa’s hookup with Leroy, driving a wedge between these formidable veterans. After losing in the final elimination round on Free Agents, Theresa worries that her animosity towards Wes might stand in her way, “Wes and I do not get along whatsoever. We actually despise one another.” Will Wes and Theresa finally be able to bury the hatchet and work together to make it to the Final? Or will their lover’s quarrel cost them their chance for a win?
