Mandi confesses to having a terrible temper and a serious attitude. She takes lip from no one, and proudly states that lying and manipulating are what she's best at. When she's not training for marathons, this brash blonde boxes three times a week. Mandi claims that too many girls on Challenges are "whiny bitches." Sparks are sure to fly when this firebrand butts heads with the other alpha-females!
Fresh Meat no more, Mandi is back for her second Challenge and hoping that a Cutthroat victory will help pay for school. Her impressive performance in Fresh Meat II surprised even herself and has provided the twenty-two year-old student with the confidence to tackle another Challenge. Mandi is anxious to have more of a voice in the game now that she's no longer a rookie. Determined, she announces, "I'm still low on the totem pole, so I am just going to have to kick butt." Will Mandi be able to establish the pull she's hoping for?
She may look fresh off the set of 90210, but make no mistake, Mandi's got heart. Since her last stint on Cutthroat, Mandi explains, "I'm going through what I might call a quarter-life crisis." Deciding there's no better cure than a hair-raising competition and a chance to win big money, Mandi is looking forward to Rivals. And while Mandi may find herself involved in a romance -- or two -- it won't be all fun and games this time around, as she's partnered with a no-nonsense veteran with a penchant for verbally eviscerating any girl who gets in her way. Will Mandi's domineering rival crush her spirit and chances at winning? Or will she maintain her resolve and clench a victory?
Battle of the Exes
Wes picked Mandi as his partner on Fresh Meat II despite having reservations about her ability to compete. But Mandi held her own over the course of the season and even outlasted Wes during The Exile elimination. The two began hooking up on Rivals, but Wes admittedly messed things up with Mandi afterwards, confessing, "We were about to be boyfriend and girlfriend, and I just kind of dropped the ball because my business took off and I got so stressed." However, Mandi didn't just sit around waiting for her redheaded man. She explains, "I made a big move to St. Louis and I'm living with my new boyfriend." Now that Mandi is taken, will Wes be able to move on from his feelings? A love-struck Wes confesses, "If I had to choose between winning the prize money or winning Mandi back, I would have to say Mandi." Only time will tell if Wes comes out a winner...
Mandi & Jenn were disqualified on day 1 of the final challenge, after taking too long to complete the "Pile Up" and "Re-creation Campsite" checkpoints. When daylight ran out, producers informed Mandi & Jenn that advancing to the "Final Feast" checkpoint would be too dangerous to attempt in the dark.
