(Ratings are based on previous seasons and are relative to other RW/RR cast members.)

The Gauntlet

Then: Mike was known as the naïve boy from Parma, Ohio. His racial comments early on in the season offended Coral and put them at odds.

Now: Mike now lives in LA and has begun a successful stint as a professional wrestler for UPW. He has also been doing a lot of charity work for the Elizabeth Glazier Pediatric Aids Foundation.

Relationships: Mike recently broke up with his girlfriend and is now single. Previously, he hooked up with Tara on the Battle of the Seasons and is keen on the friends with benefits, no-commitment hook up.

Best Known For: Coining the phrase "panty-droppers" and changing into his wrestling alter ego, The Miz. "Are you r-r-ready?"

The Inferno

Hottest Pre-Inferno Moment: Hooking up with a girl on every Challenge he's been on, most recently, Trishelle from The Gauntlet.

Loose Ends: When this wrestler-in-training and "team leader" talks, everyone listens. He pissed off Coral on the last Challenge, when he voted her to the gauntlet instead of Trishelle. She felt betrayed, even though he thought he did what was right for the team, but their friendship was damaged in the end.

Battle of the Sexes 2

High: This WWE wannabe is always a strong team member and leader. A brawny guy, Mike proved he had some brains when he helped solve a puzzle that led his Battle of the Seasons team to victory.

Lows: Losing The Inferno and The Gauntlet. The Gauntlet was also where the breakdown of his relationship with [[Coral Smith Coral]] began. Will it be repaired by this Challenge?

Relationships: Mike likes to date girls on the Challenge and so far has hooked up with [Trishelle Cannatella|Trishelle]] and Kendal, both relationships ending badly. In addition, his once strong friendship with Coral could possibly be weakening...Mike wasn't "her homie" when he voted her to The Gauntlet.

The Inferno II

The Good: Always a leader and motivator, Mike has proved he has the brains to match his brawn.

The Bad: Mike has hooked up on every Challenge except for BOTS2, where he turned into a mediocre performance and was voted off early. Could hooking up be the key to his mojo?

The Ugly: Maybe it's the fire or the Mexican heat but there's something about the Inferno that makes people a little crazy. Remember when The Miz lost it during Kendal's Inferno against Leah? Good times!
