Rookies can be sacrificial lambs in this game, but Marlon and Jordan are hoping to buck the trend. Former Big 12 linebacker Marlon is no stranger to intense competition, and despite being born with only one hand, Jordan has excelled in sports his entire life, from rugby to wrestling to gymnastics. Marlon explains, "Some of the people that don't know Jordan are going to underestimate him a lot. But they don't realize that him not having two hands has actually made him that much better of a person and that much more of a competitor." As impressive as their athletic abilities are, this is a pair that really knows how to push each other's buttons. Jordan admits, "We are both very high-strung competitors. We both want to be on top. We both want to be heard. And we both feel that our opinions are the best way." Know-it-all Jordan gets under everyone's skin while getting under the covers with two veteran girls, while Marlon explores his sexuality by playing both sides of the fence, hooking up with a guy and a girl. Could these rookies morph into a power pair? Or will their time in Thailand be cut short?
Jordan had an outstanding rookie season on Rivals II, but fell short of a win when he was eliminated on the first leg of the final. Back for a second chance, this brash upstart is confident Free Agents is his game to lose. Jordan boasts, "This is going to be a great platform to show everyone it wasn't a fluke on the first one. No teammate to slow me down, the politics are all my own, I would really love to just let the athletics speak for themselves." Already one of the Challenge's most notorious ladies' men, Jordan will find an unexpected connection with a stunning siren. Will Jordan's athletic prowess buoy him to another final? Or will his cocky attitude prove to be his undoing?
Jordan and Sarah may be an adrenaline-junkie Challenge pair made in heaven. This duo had instant chemistry on Rivals II, resulting in the steamiest closet make-out session ever. However, their passionate tryst was cut short when Sarah's Challenge 'curse' reared its ugly head and she was sent home after her partner quit. Now, Sarah's famously optimistic attitude will be put to the test when she must deal with Jordan and his notorious ego. Sarah reveals, "Although Jordan has a reputation for getting under people's skin, if he just sits back and lets me run things, then we will have a smooth ride to the finish line." Jordan admits, "I'd probably say I was pretty cocky. I'm really competitive and just have a drive to always want to do well and perform." Will Jordan check his ego at the door and hand over the reigns to the Queen of Enthusiasm? Or will these daredevils crash and burn?
The Real World: Portland export's most memorable moment was his bold move to pull all three cards to guarantee a head-to-head elimination with Johnny Bananas during Free Agents. Although he went home, Jordan's tenacity proved that he will do anything to get the chance to face an enemy -- even if there's a risk of loss and ultimately bruising his ego. Will a showdown with an adversary -- prompted by Jordan himself -- unfold on Dirty 30?
