Biography

Retrieved from MTV.com

Battle of the Sexes 2

High: He started off as the a-hole of the group on Road Rules X-TREME, but he turned out to be the sweet, tough guy. He showed just how tough he was after beating South Pacific Chris in the Face-Off boxing match.

Lows: Partying too much and hurting his knee -- both of which affected his performance in certain missions.

Relationships: He flirted with Kina a lot, but they were just friends. Maybe more of a romance will blossom on the Challenge?

The Inferno II

The Good: This sweet guy surprised everyone on BOTS2 with his ability to perform despite his affinity for drinking... a lot.

The Bad: He didn't make a lot of friends on the last Challenge; in fact, he resorted to hanging out with a frog on one lonely night.

The Ugly: He's ultra-competitive and has targeted The Miz as his rival... after all, the guys' team chose to keep The Miz over Derrick on BOTS2. Can Derrick prove he's just as strong -- or stronger -- than the mighty Miz?

Fresh Meat

He started off as the a-hole of the group on Road Rules: X-Treme, but he turned out to be the sweet, tough guy. He then proceeded to surprise everyone on Battle of the Sexes 2 with his ability to perform despite his affinity for drinking... a lot. He didn't make a lot of friends on the last Battle of the Sexes; in fact, he resorted to hanging out with a frog on one lonely night. The Gauntlet 2 started off much the same, but after ousting Adam for the captain spot, he proved his ability as a leader -- sending home half his team in the process. For all his strength, however, Derrick couldn't avoid getting sent home by Timmy in the final men's Gauntlet. Will this Challenge be a turning point for Derrick? Will he make it to final mission?

The Duel

He started off as the a-hole of the group on Road Rules: X-Treme, but he turned out to be a sweet, tough guy. He then proceeded to surprise everyone on Battle of the Sexes 2 with his ability to perform despite his affinity for drinking... a lot. The Gauntlet 2 started off much the same, but after ousting Adam for the captain spot, he proved his ability as a leader -- sending home half his team in the process. For all his strength, however, Derrick is sent home just before the final mission on the past two Challenges. Will this Challenge be a turning point for Derrick? Will he make it to the end?

The Island

Just before coming to The Island, challenge veteran Derrick got married and learned he is expecting a baby. He earned his first Challenge win on The Inferno 3, but now he's back for one more. With a share of $300,000 up for grabs, Derrick is more determined than ever to win the cash in order to start a comfy life with his new family. Will he be the breadwinner he hopes to be?

The Ruins

Derrick may be one of the smallest players, but he has a heart that cannot be matched and constantly surprises everyone with his fierce athleticism and intensity on the field. When it comes to strategy and manipulation, Derrick prefers to sit back and let others stick their necks out, while he simply flies under the radar. We last saw Derrick in a Challenge in Panama, where he was a part of the winning team on The Island. With a wife and newborn son at home, Derrick has a whole new reason to win the grand prize and he aims to do just that on The Ruins.

Cutthroat

A true Challenge legend, this pint-sized Road Rules: X-Treme veteran is one of the most feared players in the game. Strong, tenacious, and full of heart, Derrick finds inspiration in winning from his wife and son. While halfway around the world, Derrick has a message for his wife, "Babe, you're just going to have to stay strong and I'm going to win this money, come back home, and we'll be happy!" With three consecutive wins under his belt, Derrick seems to know what he is talking about. However, Cutthroat is a brand new game, full of twists and turns that will shock even this nine-time Challenge king!

XXX: Dirty 30

Derrick is an old-school cast member, and he's been biding his time before making his triumphant return to The Challenge. Always the scrappy little fighter, the Road Rules vet proved that he could be dirty when he was a part of the mob-like gang that double-crossed Paula on The Island. The stakes are high for Derrick, and he's stated he will do anything to secure a W for his son -- double-crossing someone included?
