Naomi Defensor from "The Challenge: Rivals II" is one of the contestants on Season 24 of the MTV reality competition series in summer 2013. She is teamed up with her rival, Heather Cooke. When new girl Cooke joined "The Real World: Las Vegas," Naomi felt that Cooke was trying to steal her man and the tension culminated when a pissed off Naomi woke up Cooke in the middle of the night to scream at her.

Defensor previously competed in "The Challenge: Battle of the Exes" and starred in "Real World:

The Challenge: Rivals II

On "The Real World: Back to Las Vegas," Cooke and Naomi clashed over their mutual affections for their roommate Leroy. Now, these onetime romantic rivals are each other's only allies. Naomi vents, "Cooke is an over-competitor and overachiever. I feel like she might be a b*tch." One of the most physically mismatched teams in "Rivals II," Cooke is a fitness fanatic who plays on the Philippine national soccer team, while New York City girl Naomi is one of the least athletic players in the game. Although Naomi hopes to use this perceived weakness to her advantage, Cooke worries that her partner doesn't have the desire and toughness needed to win. "The girl can't even run a mile. I could run 10. I'll definitely need to have a lot of patience with Naomi and really help her to believe in herself," Cooke confesses. Can Cooke coach Naomi to a win? Or will this pair crumble under pressure?

The Challenge: Battle of the Exes

On "The Real World: Back to Las Vegas," Naomi claimed to not care that her romantic interest Leroy Garrett slept with other women. Leroy recalls, "We had a friends with benefit type thing, and I'm like, this is sweet! And then, it turned into a disaster." Naomi admits, "Towards the end, I did catch feelings." But coming into the "Battle of the Exes," Leroy is focused solely on the game, "I don't want to hook up with her here. I want to leave that in the past and see if we can make some money." Will this couple be able to keep their heads in the game or will they let their emotions get the best of them?

The Real World: Back to Las Vegas

Naomi Defensor is an intelligent, self-reliant woman who doesn't seem like she quite fit into the gritty, drug-ridden town of Bronx, New York. This Hispanic firecracker did her best to steer away from the troubled streets, but Naomi's parents weren't so successful. Although her mother's irresponsibility caused Naomi to become emotionally hard and defensive, Naomi has realized she needs to work on this and has grown to really value and cherish relationships with people. Today, Naomi has successfully managed to drive her life in a new direction by graduating college, becoming the president of a nationally recognized sorority and interning for several successful entertainment companies. She is a strong advocate for immigration and gay rights, and aspires to one day work as a television reporter. Naomi is completely open about her life. She says she's had twelve sexual partners since attending college, and doesn't regret any of them. With her arrival in Vegas, could number 13 be far off?
