Biography

Invasion of the Champions

Southern stud Hunter is headed into his first Challenge with guns blazing. Armed with a massive, muscular physique, Hunter is a force to be reckoned with. Despite his buff exterior, he is a softie at heart. Hunter hopes to win money to open a new gym for people with special needs. In his spare time, he also volunteers in his community by helping people in need. However, this down-home country-boy charmer may find it difficult to fend off the females this season. Hunter admits, "I'm single, all of the women here are beautiful. I'm not here to try to find someone to be with but if it happens, it happens." Will he be able to use his bulging biceps to conquer the competition? Or will he lose focus and succumb to lust at his own peril?

XXX: Dirty 30

Hunter is often accused of playing with girls' hearts to benefit from lust-fueled alliances -- and let's just say this Underdog knows how to work what he's got. His muscular stature paired with a short fuse makes for an intimidating, ticking time bomb (just waiting for someone to hit detonate). When he won an impressive mission on Invasion of the Champions, Hunter wasn't afraid to call out another player who doubted him. Who will set off Hunter this time around -- and will he be able to hold it together, or will he unleash his inner fury?

Final Reckoning

Ashley and Hunter had a whirlwind romance on The Challenge: Invasion of the Champions that quickly derailed into bitter arguments and loathing. Since then, the two of them have had a love/hate relationship, oftentimes being in the same alliances with the same mutual friends, but unable to work together without fighting. This season, all they have is each other, which neither one of them is happy about.

War of the Worlds

The Are You the One? vet was crowned co-winner of last season's Final Reckoning. Unfortunately, he found himself on the receiving end of one of the biggest moves in Challenge history when his partner Ashley M. elected to take the entire million dollar earnings for herself. As a result, Hunter was left empty handed and emotionally devastated. He returns to the game eager for a second chance to win some big money. Hunter's greatest obstacle this season may be putting the recent past – and associated personal baggage – behind him and rediscovering his competitive fire.
