Biography

Battle of the Bloodlines

After his dramatic debut on Real World: Skeletons, fidelity-impaired Tony teams up with his sassy little bro, Shane, for an opportunity to win big. With a serious girlfriend back home, Tony attempts to keep his head in the game and his hands to himself, but his addiction to blondes quickly sidetracks their game. Shane worries, "I have to watch my brother. He loves women, so if he can keep the right head in the game, then I think we'll do fine." As Shane struggles to put out his brother's romantic fires left and right, he soon finds himself the target of his brother's unpredictable antics.

Rivals III

Hot-tempered Camila got into an intense shouting match with lightning rod Tony on Battle of the Bloodlines. Now that they're paired up, Camila is blown away by Tony's boyish naivety and arrogance, seething, "I'm stuck with that douchebag? He's just such a big child." Putting gunpowder and dynamite on the same team is a dangerous proposition, and Tony worries, "I'm going to have to walk on eggshells! She’s so emotionally unstable and can be so mean. I have to keep it in check, but I still have to be myself." Fireworks will be launched one way or the other, but can their outbursts be channeled back into the competition? Or is this team destined to implode in fiery fashion? Either way, look for both of these fighters to tame their combative tendencies with some shocking house hookups.

Invasion of the Champions

After his volatile cocktail of bad luck and an explosive temper sent him packing prematurely on the past two Challenges, Baton Rouge bad boy Tony is back, better than ever, and hoping that his third time's the charm. With a newborn baby girl and another on the way, rough and tough Tony must face his Challenge demons now more than ever. Tony asserts, "Alcohol is out the window. I got two daughters to fight for back home, so I'm not going anywhere." Tony's ability to contain his fury will be put to the ultimate test when a hotheaded foe tries to ruffle his feathers. Will new dad Tony find the strength he needs to control his flaming hot temper and finally win a Challenge? Or will he return home empty handed?

XXX: Dirty 30

No stranger to controversy, the Real World: Skeletons vet has been making waves since the beginning on The Challenge. On the first night in the Bloodlines house, he not only cheated on his girlfriend back home but also got into a heated brawl with his brother Shane. The pinnacle of Tony's bad-boy behavior came on Rivals III during repeated battles with his partner Camila, ultimately leading to a one-way ticket home for both of them. Can Tony walk away peacefully from a confrontation (like he did during Invasion of the Champions), or will his temper come back to haunt him?

Vendettas

Tony has a tumultuous relationship with The Challenge. Having found himself in a number of precarious predicaments, including a physical altercation with his brother on Battle of the Bloodlines and a kiss that shook his game and personal life on Dirty 30, Tony is hoping to turn it all around... again. Fresh off an elimination right before the final, the father of two intends to change people's minds and score his first check. Will there be a new Tony? Or will his Twitter drama with Brad boil over and tear his game apart?

Champs vs. Stars (2018)

Known for his signature call, "It's Tony time!" and his tumultuous relationships on and off the Challenge, Tony's first appearance on Champs vs. Stars is likely to be an interesting one. After five Challenge appearances including making the finals on Vendettas, Tony is definitely not a rookie anymore, but he isn't a big winner either, as he continues to search for that elusive grand prize. And with two young daughters back home and a girlfriend he hopes to make his fiancé very soon, Tony has a lot to fight for, and a lot to prove. Can Tony show that he has what it takes to make it all the way this time? Or will he let his pride and ego get in the way of him becoming a true Challenge champion? The charity he'll be playing for is Hands On NOLA.

Final Reckoning

For much of Challenge history, Tony was like Bananas' little brother, looking to him for guidance and friendship while he navigated the treacherous waters of the game. But Tony eventually realized that he would never win it all unless he stepped out of Bananas' shadow, so on The Challenge: Vendettas, he took matters into his own hands by pulling one of the all-time shocking backstabs in show history, sending a stunned Bananas into the elimination that doomed him. Somehow, some way, these former buddies turned enemies will have to figure out how to work together while still suffering from an open wound that hasn’t healed.
