War of the Worlds

The Big Brother 19 winner joins The Challenge motivated to notch another win. A divisive Big Brother houseguest on his original season, Josh is most remembered for his numerous heated arguments as well as infamously banging pots and pans around the house in order to "mentally break" his enemies. The Miami native is extremely competitive and will do anything it takes to get a leg up on the competition. Will he wind up rubbing his fellow Challengers the wrong way or be able to settle in and play the sort of shrewd game that took him to the top in Big Brother?

War of the Worlds 2

The former Big Brother champion made a name for himself on War of the Worlds with an oversized personality and a fierce competitive spirit. Often underestimated, Josh impressed his fellow Challengers by demonstrating determination and heart. Of course, he tends to wear that heart on his sleeve, making him a magnet for explosive confrontations and in-house drama. Will Josh be able to harness his emotions and find success, or will his combativeness be his downfall?

Total Madness

Few competitors have been as great a magnet for drama over the past two Challenge seasons as Josh. An eager politician who wears his emotions (and he has a lot of them) on his sleeve, Josh has pulled off major game moves, taken part in massive blowups and shed more than his share of tears. The one thing he hasn't done is win an elimination, meaning this season's new twist may prove to be Josh's ultimate test. Of course, with a million dollars on the line, don't expect Josh to go down without a fight. He stands as great a chance as anyone to reach his first Final. Just be prepared for plenty of fireworks along the way -- and more tears.

Double Agents

Despite his penchant for drama, the passionate (and, yes, emotional) Big Brother alum has made it deep into the last several seasons. Unfortunately, he has yet to crack his first final -- or even notch his first elimination win -- and will need to step up his game play if he hopes to make it to the end for once. Nevertheless, Josh insists he has learned from past mistakes and enters this season more focused and determined than ever. The family man has plenty to play for as he hopes to support his parents. with such heavy motivation, Josh is under even more pressure to keep his passion in check and his eyes on the prize. If he manages to do so, this could be a true breakthrough season for Josh.
