Biography

Retrieved from MTV.com

Cutthroat

Camila was one of the winners of Spring Break Challenge and is here to prove that she can make it in the big leagues, as well. This exotic beauty was born in São Paola, Brazil and has lived in the United States for ten years. Currently, she is a student as the University of Nebraska, where she studies International Business and Journalism. New to the game, Camila brings a fresh perspective to the competition and is ready for whatever comes her way, boasting, "I'm definitely tough enough to stay here. I'll do whatever it takes. I've never done this before, but we'll see how it goes."

Rivals

Camila first appeared on Spring Break Challenge, but the Brazilian native left her mark on Cutthroat, where her outspoken manner drew the unwanted attention of the house mean girls. Despite verbal attacks and accusations of theft from her female competitors, this fiery beauty fought her way through seven rounds of competition, proving that she had heart, in addition to her sassy attitude. This time around, Camila is paired up with one of her former tormentors, and the two will have to put their differences aside if they want a shot at victory.

Battle of the Exes

Camila became attracted to Johnny on Cutthroat, but Johnny kept things friendly as he had a girlfriend at home. However, the rumor mill was abuzz that the twosome may have been more than friends. Camila describes their complicated relationship, "People like to talk about what they don't know, but me and Johnny, we're close. So I don't blame them!" Now a newly single man, Johnny definitely doesn't rule out exploring things more with Camila stating, "Circumstances have changed in my life and I basically have free rein to do things I wasn't able to do before!" Watch these two to see if their warming relationship will heat up, and how it may affect their game.

Battle of the Seasons (2012)

Our seven Real World teams got a rude awakening when Team Fresh Meat arrived as the "surprise" team on Battle of the Seasons. Brandon, Camila, Eric, and Cara Maria bring toughness and experience to the table, but could their late entrance to the game be a disadvantage? As Cara Maria explains, "Being the surprise team, all it does is single us out, there is nothing good about it." Camila arrives in Turkey fresh off her victory in Battle of the Exes, while Eric went a long way toward shedding his "Big Easy" nickname, losing 70 lbs since his last Challenge appearance. "People wanted to use my size against me and let's just see what people want to say about me now," he boasts. Armed with newfound confidence, Eric unexpectedly finds love with one of the game's biggest divas. Rounding out the team is two-time finalist Cara Maria and veteran Brandon, who hopes to redeem himself after making an early exit on Rivals. "For whatever reason, I always get the short end of the stick when it comes to a team or a partner. I'm back to try to prove that I can lead a team to a Final," Brandon declares. Will Fresh Meat's social game measure up to their muscle? Or will drama derail this dysfunctional bunch?

Rivals II

Undoubtedly the feistiest duo on Rivals II, Camila and Jemmye bring explosive personalities, short fuses, and a couple of gnarly accents to the game. While these two have proven they can hang in any physical competition, communication will be their real challenge. Jemmye explains, "I honestly think Camila and I need a translator. Half the time I have no clue what she's saying." But if this pair can keep their tempers in check and learn to trust each other, they could go all the way. A former Division I athlete, Jemmye is no slouch when it comes to performing in challenges, but Camila's unfiltered emotional outbursts could jeopardize their social game. Will fireworks fly when Brazilian brass meets Southern sass? Or will this explosive duo flame out in a flash?

Free Agents

While several of her fellow competitors have made it to a final, Camila is the only girl on Free Agents who knows the thrill of Challenge victory. After winning Battle of the Exes, Camila advanced to the finals of Rivals II, but finished a disappointing third. She's ready to redeem that performance, stating, "I'm at that point in my Challenge history that I want that big money no matter what. I don't care who I have to cross. I will do what I have to do." Fearless and feisty, this Brazilian bombshell doesn't flinch when it comes to daring physical feats or dishing out a verbal assault. Can Camila keep her temper in check long enough to make another final? Or will an emotional meltdown send her packing?

Battle of the Bloodlines

The only thing that can make fierce Brazilian-born vet Camila more explosively volatile is when her feisty, younger sister Larissa joins her in the game. This hotheaded set of South American sisters takes the competition by storm and threatens anyone who stands in their way. When little sister gets into a no-holds-barred scream-fest with another competitor, overprotective Camila is right behind her and twice as angry. Camila warns, "If you want to piss me off, mess with my sister. Anybody that hurts her or tries to hurt her will get hurt by me." It'll take extreme willpower for Camila and Larissa to focus their scathing aggression into a win before their tempers implode their chances.

Rivals III

Hot-tempered Camila got into an intense shouting match with lightning rod Tony on Battle of the Bloodlines. Now that they're paired up, Camila is blown away by Tony's boyish naivety and arrogance, seething, "I'm stuck with that douchebag? He's just such a big child." Putting gunpowder and dynamite on the same team is a dangerous proposition, and Tony worries, "I'm going to have to walk on eggshells! She's so emotionally unstable and can be so mean. I have to keep it in check, but I still have to be myself." Fireworks will be launched one way or the other, but can their outbursts be channeled back into the competition? Or is this team destined to implode in fiery fashion? Either way, look for both of these fighters to tame their combative tendencies with some shocking house hookups.

Invasion of the Champions

After an intense argument with Tony sent her packing on Rivals III, Camila returns to pulverize the competition. Born in Brazil and raised in the US, Camila is no stranger to The Challenge. After 8 seasons and one win, her mission is to try to reform her dramatically destructive persona. She asserts, "I need to put the Camilanator aside. I don't want the drama. This season's going to be different. I just want to come in to win." Camila may have renewed focus, but decides to let loose and mix a little business with pleasure when she seduces a charming young competitor. However, when a hotheaded Underdog tries to push her buttons, she'll have to stop the Camilanator from reemerging.

XXX: Dirty 30

Simply put, the Camilinator is no stranger to controversial moves. Whether by accident or not, she tossed aside another Rivals III team's key during a challenge and then denied it (even when it was caught it on tape). Next, on Invasion of the Champions, Camila's possible rogue streak continued to the misfortune of her friend (Cara Maria) when Camila wrapped her body in ropes in order to hang on longer. Camila will be a hard champ to shake off -- even in a house full of similarly scheming players.
