Total Madness

With experience on both Big Brother and American Ninja Warrior, Fessy enters his Rookie season possessing both the mental and physical game to make him an instant Finals threat. The former Division I football player views The Challenge as his redemption after not getting drafted into the NFL and will do anything he can to take home the prize money for his family. With all that motivation, this intimidating brute looks to be a serious contender for Rookie of the Year and possibly a Challenge champion.

Double Agents

Fessy views The Challenge as his opportunity for redemption after failing to achieve his dream of making the NFL. He is prepared to do absolutely anything it takes to come out on top, whether he has to backstab, betray or physically obliterate anyone who stands in his way. Fessy's primary drive is to win, both to prove his doubters wrong and to serve as an inspiration. If he can keep that focus through the game, he stands a great chance of taking home the W.

Spies, Lies & Allies

Devastated by making it to, and failing in, yet another Final, Fessy is back and determined to prove he has what it takes to bring home the big money. With his past arrogance and selfish moves, though, Fessy knows he has a massive target on his back, and will have to rely on his intimidation, athletic abilities, and Big Brother besties, Josh and Kaycee, if he hopes to make it through.
