Frank Sweeney from "The Challenge: Rivals II" is one of the contestants on Season 24 of the MTV reality competition series in summer 2013. He is teamed up with his rival, Johnny Bananas. Four-time Challenge Champion Johnny got into a huge twitter fight with Frank, claiming that rookie Frank's win didn't count since he didn't have to compete against Johnny.

Frank previously competed in "The Challenge: Battle of the Seasons" in which he was teamed up with his fellow cast members Zach Nichols, Sam McGinn and Ashley Kelsey from "The Real World: San Diego" (2011), Season 26 of the MTV reality docu-drama.

The Challenge: Rivals II

The stage is set for a clash of the egos as two of the most notorious personalities in "Challenge" history are thrust together. Although they had never met in person prior to their arrival in Thailand, Johnny and Frank's rivalry grew out of a heated exchange on Twitter. Irked by the "Rookie Revolution" that propelled Frank's team to victory on "Battle of the Seasons," veteran Johnny downplayed Frank's win, claiming he "didn't scout Junior Varsity" when a fan asked his opinion of the game's new generation. Never one to let an insult slide by, Frank fired back at 30-year-old Bananas, snarking, "Maybe you should focus on a real job, old man!" While these two may need to earn each other's respect, four-time champion Johnny already recognizes their innate similarities, admitting, "One of the things that scares me the most about Frank is he reminds me a lot of myself." Johnny and Frank have the chops to emerge as a powerhouse pair, but will their massive egos prove to be their downfall?

The Challenge: Battle of the Seasons

Hothead Frank Sweeney enters the game hell-bent on leading his team, but Zach has other ideas. These two alpha males hated each other during their season, but arrive at "Battle of the Seasons" hoping to change that, as Frank admits, "The thing that means the most to me is being able to cross the finish line with Zach. I wouldn't want to cross the finish line with anybody else." Frank and Zach may be friends for now, but will the pressures of the game re-ignite their past hatred?

The Real World: San Diego

Nicknamed Hurricane Frank, this recent graduate of prestigious Middlebury College is a whirlwind of emotions. When he's up, Frank Sweeney ("Real World: San Diego") is soaring and when he is down, watch out. Growing up in upstate New York, Frank was a star athlete and the smartest kid in class. This trajectory continued in college, but all of a sudden he quit sports, changed from pre-med to focus on activism and social issues, and on his infamous 21sth birthday, hooked up with a guy. What followed was a year of sex with multiple sex partners, both "chicks and dudes." Frank believes that a night without blacking out is not enough fun. And yet, this master of manipulation wears his heart on his sleeve and is brimming with emotions—perhaps too much. Will Frank find himself in San Diego or will he continue to keep shifting, keep moving, and keep whirling?

Frank is originally from Canastota, New York, where he attended Christian Brothers Academy. While at Middlebury College, he majored in both molecular biology and Spanish. He was also on the track team, specializing in the hammer throw.
