Rivals IIICory was the pivotal vote in a decision to kick Ashley out of the Real World: Ex-Plosion house and now, they're partners! Cory has no reason to believe that her state of mind has improved, "Ashley looks like she's in great shape, but mentally is Ashley ready to handle this Challenge? All Hell is gonna break lose." Ashley admits, "I was not in a very good place but kind of turned over a new leaf since then. Am I crazy? Probably, yeah. I think we're all crazy!" Ashley has no intention of getting sent home early, and a steamy hookup with a brawny Challenge vet shows everybody that she has nothing to hide! As for smooth-talking Cory, he sets his eyes on a doe-eyed rookie of his own. Will these ex-roommates be able to balance their romances for long enough to walk away victorious? Or will their fiery personalities combust like the last time they worked together?
Invasion of the ChampionsFresh off of a devastating loss on Rivals III, Ashley is back with a vengeance. Last season, party hardy Ashley, better known as "Smashley," let a hunky hottie get in her head and affect her game. After her ego was shaken, Ashley returns with renewed focus. But when a bodacious new beau enters the mix, Ashley must decide if her time in Thailand will be for lust, or to bust the competition. Ashley has a thirst to win for herself and for her sister, "I've really grown up and changed since last year. My current dream is to win The Challenge, so I can start a new life with my sister in Las Vegas." Will Ashley keep her eye on the ball and avenge last season's loss? Or will we see a return of the notorious, "Smashley?"
XXX: Dirty 30The newest Challenge gold medalist was able to conquer Underdogs and Champions. Along the way to her first victory, Ashley M. showed she is loud and unapologetic, and knows just when to turn on the drama to get what she wants. On Invasion of the Champions, the Real World: Ex-Plosion roommate revealed her inner shiftiness when she solidified her win by leaving her fellow Underdogs literally hanging in the very first challenge. Now, will her penchant for being a loose canon cause a Challenge explosion on whoever dares tempt her?
Champs vs. Stars (2017)This West Virginia native clawed and fought her way from the Shelter to the Oasis to the grand prize on her second season, Invasion of the Champions. Although she is fairly fresh to the franchise, Mitchell has proven she is a force to be reckoned with. When she's around, the waterworks are frequent but only because this emotional firecracker is so keen to take the W in every challenge and elimination she competes in. After an early exit on Dirty 30 she is hungry to prove she still has what it takes and to show she is a true champ.
Champs vs. Stars (2018)After a devastating family tragedy on the last Champs vs. Stars, it's been a tough year for Ashley, but she is finally ready to rejoin the game and prove once and for all she can take this win- just like she did on her rookie season of Invasion of the Champions. When she's got her game face on, this West Virginia native has shown that she may be small but she is a fierce competitor. However, it's off the field where Ashley is prone to major meltdowns and lots of drama. Can this former cheerleader and Southern belle keep her head in the game and eyes on the prize this season? Or will her emotions once again get the best of her? The charity she'll be playing for is Malala Fund.
Final ReckoningAshley and Hunter had a whirlwind romance on The Challenge: Invasion of the Champions that quickly derailed into bitter arguments and loathing. Since then, the two of them have had a love/hate relationship, oftentimes being in the same alliances with the same mutual friends, but unable to work together without fighting. This season, all they have is each other, which neither one of them is happy about.
War of the WorldsThe reigning Challenge champion returns to the competition after cementing her place in Challenge infamy by keeping the $1,000,000 Final Reckoning prize for herself (meaning nothing for her partner Hunter) and then mockingly throwing a dollar bill at him during the reunion. Having vaulted into the top spot as the highest all-time Challenge money winner, Ashley M. has proven she can compete with the best of them. After making such a big move, will her status as Challenge villain make her an easy target for the rest of the house?
War of the Worlds 2The all-time leading Challenge money-winner, Ashley is back and hungry for more than just cash; she seeks redemption after getting sent home in the first elimination on War of the Worlds. A fierce competitor and cunning game-player, Ashley has perpetrated some of the game's coldest moves -- even stealing half a million from her own partner. With such a devious reputation, it's no surprise Ashley enters the game with a perpetual target on her back. Will her team seek to harness her competitive spirit or send her packing early as continued punishment for past behavior?
Total MadnessAs the all-time top money winner on The Challenge, Ashley is back to add to her massive haul. That goal might be easier said than done, as her reputation for shady gameplay -- including depriving half a million dollars of her partner -- has been especially hard to shake. Nevertheless, she enters the season on the heels of an impressive Finals run in which she politicked her way just short of another win. With plenty of enemies and few friends around, Ashley may wish to keep her usual drama to a minimum this season. The only question is: Can she?
Double AgentsEvery season, Ashley seems to either make it all the way to the final or find herself knocked out within the first couple eliminations, perhaps because her status as a two-time champ and notorious social gamer tends to put a massive target on her back from day one. Despite her shady reputation, Ashley's guiltless political style and underrated athleticism make her an instant threat to regain her crown as the all-time Challenge money-winner, a title she lost just last season. If "Millionaire Mitchell" wants to add another W to her haul, she'll need to work hard to build some fast alliances, or she may find herself on the outs with her fellow agents.
Spies, Lies & AlliesAshley's biggest weakness in the game is undoubtedly her reputation, which has put a target on her back on other Challenge seasons. As the all-time woman money-winner, it's easy to see why Ashley is always seen as a massive threat. Her brains, athleticism and political skills combined with her propensity for drama all but guarantee Ashley will have a major impact on the game.
