Battle of the Seasons (2002)
Outlook: For some reason girls don't like her, but most of the guys will. This is the third time she and Yes have been teammates and that chemistry will likely show. She's also got a lot of skill in that tiny frame.
Previous Record: (Out of 5 stars)
Hooking Up: ****
Athletic Ability: ****(Ratings are based on previous seasons and are relative to other RW/RR cast members.)
Then: Sometimes acting like a spoiled brat, she was accused of plagiarism and tank-top theft during her Semester at Sea.
Now: This is Veronica's fourth Challenge and she has proved to be a legitimate competitor. She's thinking about opening up her own beauty salon in West Hollywood, catering to the elite 20-something crowd.Emily's arch rival on Battle of the Sexes and Amaya's arch rival on a previous Challenge.
Hottest Pre-Inferno Moment: A steamy three-way kiss on The Gauntlet.Loose Ends: The Inferno marks Veronica's fifth Real World/Road Rules Challenge. She is continually the subject of all of the guys' attention and can easily use this to her advantage if she wanted to. Her argument with Katie on The Gauntlet may be revisited if Katie continues to piss her off.
Battle of the Sexes 2
High: After being on, like, 50 Challenges, she finally won! She took home cash and the car on The Inferno.
Lows: Stealing Pua's shirt and Ayanna's term paper during Semester at Sea still ranks up there and some of the dumbest things Road Rulers have ever done. Fighting Katie topless on The Inferno was one of the smartest.Relationships: Veronica does not discriminate between hot Road Rules guys or hot Real World guys. And things got pretty steamy on The Gauntlet when she, Rachel and Abe shared a hot tub together.
The Inferno II
The Good: Veronica's athleticism improves with each Challenge, and since this is her seventh, she's pretty damn good. Remember the humping tactic she used to to cross a ladder in a Gauntlet mission? That was awesome.
The RuinsSmart, sexy, and undeniably sly, Veronica is one of the most cunning competitors to ever play the game. Yet, it has been years since this crafty contender has been on a Challenge and the game has only become more cutthroat. In Thailand, she returns to discover a new crop of players, ready to take her out. Describing herself as a "born-again Rookie," Veronica is an old school vet, hoping to show the new crowd how the game is really played. Does this queen of manipulation still have what it takes to retain her crown? You'd be wise not to underestimate Veronica in The Ruins.
XXX: Dirty 30Veronica is one of the original "bad girls" of The Challenge. With three wins under her belt, the Road Rules export knows how to play the game hard. She's the queen of manipulating votes and has even encouraged her team to throw challenges in order to get rid of weak links. This old-school crème de la crème is ready to show everyone that despite her break from the series, she still has what it takes to dive deep, play dirty and sway a new generation of players to do her dastardly bidding.
VendettasAfter years away from the series, the legendary Road Rules vet returned to Dirty 30 and reminded us all how she earned her reputation as one of the original "bad girls." Proving she still has what it takes to manipulate the game, she exploited a poorly timed burn vote to throw Leroy into an elimination and immediately created a new vendetta to face this season. Will she use her devious political game to earn her fourth win, or will Leroy have the last laugh this time around?
Final ReckoningChallenge Veterans, CT and Veronica, have competed on their fair share of seasons together. Reuniting on The Challenge: Dirty 30, the pair consistently argued with one another. When CT was given the opportunity, he sent Veronica into elimination, claiming that no one wanted to be on a team with her. After returning from elimination, Veronica earned her revenge by sending CT straight to the Redemption House. Will these two Vets be able to put their differences aside and claim another Challenge victory?
