"Hurricane" Nia was last seen wreaking havoc on the Real World: Portland where she terrorized her roommates. Having matured and mellowed from the experience, this Challenge rookie assures that she is more interested in competition than stirring things up in the house. Nia declares, "I do intimidate people, but not on purpose. I don't really know what it's like to lose. I am going to win. There is no other option." Nia may have the competitive drive it takes to win The Challenge, but will she be able to hold back her inner hurricane?
Nia and Leroy tried to keep their secret hookup under wraps, but were caught suspiciously exiting a bathroom together on Free Agents. Leroy explains, "She's in denial of washing her hands and I am too." This season, cool and collected Leroy will be forced to weather a storm that hasn't been spotted since Real World: Portland -- Hurricane Nia! Leroy quickly realizes, "She's like a ticking time bomb that could go off!" As Nia struggles with her political game, her opponents take advantage and make moves against her. Nia vents, "I don't have a temper, I'm just not a punk. I'm a force to be reckoned with." Can Leroy calm Nia's explosive temper? Or will Hurricane Nia make landfall in Panama?
