Biography

Retrieved from MTV.com

Fresh Meat

Ev is a tough-as-nails aspiring Olympian who is risking a college softball scholarship at the University of Arizona to compete in The Challenge. She is also risking a relationship: Her girlfriend fears Ev might cheat on her with a man given the opportunity. Sports, sex, determination and a cocky attitude? Ev was made for The Challenge.

The Inferno 3

Ev was a tough-as-nails aspiring Olympian who risked a college softball scholarship at the University of Arizona to compete in the Fresh Meat Challenge. Sports, sex, determination and a cocky attitude? Seems like Ev was made for the Challenges. She was the top girl in the Fresh Meat trials, but unlucky for her Danny picked her as his teammate. With the Austin season on the chopping block, Ev and Danny were sent home before Ev even had a chance to show off her athletic prowess. Will The Inferno 3 be her second chance?

The Gauntlet III

Regarded as the best female athlete of the lot, Ev returns to the Challenge as a feared competitor. She captured her first Challenge victory at The Inferno 3 and was not nominated for the Inferno once, a sign of the respect that opponents have for her. Her only weakness is her temper, and when the pressure is on, there's always a chance for a wild emotional freakout! Of course, everything is up for grabs if the athlete is distracted by love...

The Island

Still bitter and angry after her loss on The Gauntlet III, Evelyn comes into The Island with a determination to win like never before. With her mind always on the game, Evelyn tends to distance herself from the other players. As a result, she often comes up short in the social aspects of the competition. Will her physical attributes be enough to earn her a claim in the cash at stake?

The Ruins

Arguably the strongest woman to ever play the game, Evelyn is one fierce competitor. In her debut on Fresh Meat, Evelyn didn't last long, but made quite the impression. Evelyn returned to the Challenge and became a part of the winning team on The Inferno 3. We last saw Evelyn in Panama for The Island, where she found herself the target of constant ridicule from Johnny Bananas, and in a controversial move, she decided to team up with her enemies, leading them to a win. While Evelyn is a tough player, she can sometimes let her emotions eclipse her judgment. In The Ruins of Thailand, will Evelyn play with her heart or will she play with her head?

Rivals

Evelyn is undeniably one of the most dominating players to ever don a Challenge jersey. Not one to back down, Evelyn asserts, "Unlike other girls in this game, I don't take a back seat." A fiercely independent competitor, Evelyn doesn't always play well with others and when asked about her playing style, she admits, "I don't really work well in partnerships and I'm hoping I don't have a partner this time around." Evelyn will have no such luck this season on Rivals, when she is attached to a partner with a less-than-stellar track record.
