Cutthroat

Although he is new to the game, Derek is well aware of how newbies can be treated, revealing, "There's a lot at stake here. Since it's my first Challenge, I know I'm gonna be on the chopping block because I'm here with a lot of people who have done this more than five times!" However, this Real World: Cancun alum may shock everyone with his competitive side. Derek is an all around athlete, proficient in track, baseball, basketball, and volleyball. With so many skills, Derek may just be a Cutthroat dark horse.

Battle of the Seasons (2012)

Team Cancun enters Battle of the Seasons confident that they are the most unified team in the game, claiming that they've grown as close as a family. Having been outsmarted by Wes on Fresh Meat II, former NFL punter and current male model CJ is out to prove he's no chump, vowing, "Just because you model doesn't mean you have to be dumb. I can be a model, but I can be smart in my own ways." Joining CJ is Derek, who after being eliminated first on Cutthroat, is eager to show his team that he has what it takes to compete. Rounding out the team are former rivals Jonna and Jasmine, who have promised to squash their habitual bickering to unite as teammates. But with these two hot-tempered vixens, anything is possible. However, Jonna has little time for Jasmine when she cuddles up with a hunky player on an opposing team, a move that could infuriate other competitors. But opposing teams beware because, as Jasmine warns, "Anyone messes with my family, they're in for a rude awakening!" Will Cancun's close-knit bond carry them through to the end? Or will political backlash tear this team apart?

Rivals II

Robb and Derek can finally laugh at their shirt-ripping confrontation on Battle of the Seasons. Derek jokes, "My fight with Robb was one of the dumbest things I've ever done. He would've killed me and I look like a little Chihuahua!" Not only has Robb put the past behind them, but has also been training hard since his last Challenge, adding 40 lbs. to his 6'6" frame. He admits that while Derek isn't the biggest guy in the house, he's still a valuable asset in the game. "We are very well rounded. I know he can probably endure just about everything. I suck underwater; he's awesome underwater. And I think we're both pretty smart," Robb says. Can these former foes keep the peace long enough to grab the cash? Or will tempers flare once again?
