The chance to win serious cash is a huge motivator for Ryan, whose year of bouncing from job to job was punctuated with the break up from his long-time boyfriend. Although he is loyal, Ryan is known for his extremely manipulative behavior and sass, which will come in handy on The Challenge. He can dazzle people with his humor and witty banter, but will that be enough to get him across the finish line?
The Gauntlet III
Remember Ryan? No? Well, if you blinked your eyes during Fresh Meat, you may have missed him, as he earned an early exit when he and his partner Melinda were sent home as part of the move to destroy the Austin alliance. Ryan has been itching for a comeback, and without a partner to hold him back, The Gauntlet III is a chance for Ryan to stir up some reality mayhem of his own!
Ryan lives in New York City with his roommate The Real World: Key West'sPaula, whom he met on The Gauntlet III. More at home in the big city, Ryan will have to adapt to the harsh living conditions that The Island has to offer. And while they may be roommates back in "the real world," Ryan and Paula will have their friendship tested in a game where every alliance is suspect as the competition heats up.
The Duel II
Ryan started out on a Challenge, but didn't make it very far in the Fresh Meat season. He also returned for two more, but got bounced from The Gauntlet III and was among the runners-up on The Island. He's a manipulator, he's witty and he's got plenty of attitude. And he's back for a fourth run at the money. Will he be able to distance himself from this enormous field of competitors on The Duel II? Or will he find himself fulfilling his usual role of walking away empty handed?
Fresh Meat II
Last seen on The Duel II, Ryan returns on Fresh Meat II, swearing that this time he won't just, "Hook up in a hot tub and leave early." An original Fresh Meat cast member, Ryan returns to his roots after years of losing. As a result, this veteran swears that he will play the game to win, even if he has to, "Lie, cheat, steal, or kill" his way to the Final. Known for his hilarious antics, Ryan is thirsty to prove he can also compete.
