Fresh MeatKenny is a ladies' man and more than your average meathead. He's a natural-born leader who loves competition and has been known to get in trouble for his aggressive personality -- but his mischievous grin tends to save the day when he's gone too far. He's bursting with confidence -- with a crass sense of humor -- and is famous for his arrogant attitude. And his slick charm will be the perfect cover for a smart and cunning competitor who's aiming to steal the attention -- and the money!
The DuelKenny is a ladies' man and more than your average meathead. He loves competition and has been known to get in trouble for his aggressive personality -- but his mischievous grin tends to save the day when he's gone too far. His charms worked on his Fresh Meat teammate Tina -- whether it was more than just a partnership is debatable, but as they wrestled and fought like an old married couple, it was apparent that something more was going on. Despite the odds, this lively twosome beat out Wes and Casey for second place, taking home a nice chunk of change. Will he again partner with Tina in Brazil, or has this partnership combusted?
The Inferno 3Kenny is a ladies' man and more than your average meathead. He loves competition and has been known to get in trouble for his aggressive personality. But his mischievous grin tends to save the day when he's gone too far. His charms worked on his Fresh Meat teammate Tina, but whether it was more than just a partnership is debatable. Yet, they managed to get second place in the final mission. Despite their bond, Tina gave Kenny the cold shoulder on The Duel and he didn't fare too well thereafter. He lost in a Duel with Nehemiah. Will Kenny be able to make it to the end without Tina or will South Africa just be another stop in the world tour.
The Gauntlet IIIOnce thought of as the Jersey-talkin' wise ass with no athletic skills whatsoever, Kenny proved that he is much more than a pretty face (though he'll always be quick to point out how pretty that face is). With his back against the wall, Kenny captured a Life Shield to stave off elimination during The Inferno 3, and earned his second trip to a Final Challenge, and his first grand prize. Bottom line: He'll kick your ass and look good doing it.
The IslandBack for his fifth consecutive Challenge, Kenny brings his unique brand of charm and sense of humor to The Island, as he aims to get back on top after his crushing defeat on The Gauntlet III. Single and always ready to mingle, Kenny has his eye on his first Challenge romance. But foremost, his mind is on the game, and Kenny is planning on running things his way this time. Will his plan backfire?
The RuinsJersey stud Kenny was last seen winning not only the grand prize of The Island, but also the heart of Wes' ex-fiancé, Johanna. Since being a part of the winning team on The Island, Kenny claims to have been "changing the lives of women across the land, making the world a better place and saving children from burning buildings," all while continuing to live in the attic of his mother's house. But this mama's boy is more than a sexy smile and a practical jokester; when it comes to The Challenge, Kenny knows how to get the job done. But will coming face-to-face with his nemesis, Wes, affect his game in Thailand and leave him in ruins?
Fresh Meat IIKenny sums up an impressive string of Challenge wins by boasting, "I just show up and kick ass!" Once a Fresh Meat newbie himself, Kenny hopes to take the reigns of his partnership and coast to another victory. However, Kenny may have a bumpy road ahead of him this time around, as he arrives in British Columbia without the aid of his partners in crime -- Evan and Johnny. And to top that off, Kenny will once again come face to face with his Challenge nemesis, Wes. But has time healed old wounds between Wes and Kenny? Simply put... no way! If Kenny wants a piece of that $300,000 pie, he's going to have to fight like never before to earn another victory.
RivalsOne of the most winning players in Challenge history, Kenny brags, "I have six trips to a Final, three championships, and two second place wins." Kenny may be used to winning, but he has never been forced to play the game with his worst enemy as his only partner. When this self-described "Mr. Beautiful" is asked how he will deal with his rival partner, he explains, "My partner's weakness is his ugly face. No one likes having an ugly person around, but since he's with me, I will project my beauty on him to help him out." We'll see if Kenny can help his partner out...
