Batle of the Exes II

No one would have guessed that spunky diva, Simone, would fall for scrawny, wisecracking comedian, John. Their unexpected hookup on Are You the One? proved that opposites can attract... until they explode into tears. Simone is a brassy, ball of sass that loves fanning the flames of any argument she can find. After their quick tryst fizzed, John quickly realized, "Oh, you're more of a selfish, egotistical, prideful person who just wants attention for attention's sake and I am not like that." When John tried to break things off, drinks were thrown, windows were shattered, and the decibels skyrocketed. Simone warns, "I don't play low-key and I don't play safe. If you don't like me, then so be it." Will John's comedic wit be enough to balance Simone's loud and proud attitude in the house? Or will his jokes fall flat…along with their chances of winning?

Rivals III

Thomas found out the hard way that Simone is not a diva to be trifled with on Battle of the Exes II when she unloaded fourteen full drinks in his face just for telling her to mind her own business. Simone recalls it fondly, "Me and him had a heated argument that made me throw fourteen drinks on him in seven seconds flat. I'm trying to work on this Zen thing that I'm doing now, but I can barely stand looking at Tom, okay?" Thomas explains her melodrama cynically, "She's gonna scream; she's gonna be loud and obnoxious and throw things at people for no reason. All she wants is attention." Thomas's worst nightmare comes true when Simone proves to be even more outrageous than he thought possible. However, her confrontational nature may be contagious, as Thomas soon finds himself going toe-to-toe with one of the most formidable competitors in the house. All of this drama is compounded when one of the most unique injuries in Challenge history threatens to remove this team from the game... These two certainly have their work cut out for them!

XXX: Dirty 30

The moment Simone entered The Challenge house, she made her presence known. During Rivals III, she called out Tony for starting a rumor that she wanted to have sex with him, and her ongoing fights with Ashley almost got her kicked out of the house. One thing is for certain: Simone won't back down when it comes to the game -- and her fellow Dirty 30 competitors better be warned.
