Brandon Nelson from "The Challenge: Battle of the Seasons" is one of the contestants on Season 23 of the MTV reality competition series in fall 2012. Camila ("Real World Challenge") is teamed up with his fellow cast member Cara Maria Sorbello from "The Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Fresh Meat 2," as well as Eric Banks and Camila Nakagawa from the original "Fresh Meat."

late entrance to the game be a disadvantage? Veteran Brandon hopes to redeem himself after making an early exit on "Rivals." "For whatever reason, I always get the short end of the stick when it comes to a team or a partner. I'm back to try to prove that I can lead a team to a Final," Brandon declares.


Brandon Nelson is paired with his rival, Ty Ruff. The self-described "whipping-boy" during "Cutthroat," Brandon Nelson was constantly sent into the Gulag elimination round. Brandon promises, "I was used and abused by my team. But on this Challenge, I'm definitely going to play the political game differently." This "Fresh Meat 2" fan favorite has etched out a reputation as a solid, likable player. But when he's paired up with his worst enemy—a notorious hothead—will Brandon be able to keep his cool?


Last seen getting disqualified for drinking a beer before an Exile on "Fresh Meat 2," Brandon Nelson is convinced that his performance will speak for itself this time around. He confidently explains, "You don't have to get into the politics of backstabbing, lying to people, and cutting deals. I think you can just play the game as hard as you can." That's all well and good, but the name of this game is "Cutthroat"! Although Brandon isn't "Fresh Meat" anymore, it sounds like this Arkansas native still has a lot to learn about "The Challenge."

Fresh Meat 2

Brandon from "The Challenge: Fresh Meat 2" is one of the new challengers. He is paired up with series alumnus Katelynn Cusanelli. This Arkansas native hates losing and wears his emotions on his sleeve. Whether it's anger, sadness or laughter, you never have to wonder what Brandon Nelson is feeling. Brandon loves meeting new people and insists that he's very open-minded with people who are different than him. He'll have plenty of chances to prove that when he meets the "Challenge's" colorful cast of competitors!
