The Challenge: Rivals II

The male team that poses the biggest physical threat ... is also the one fraught with the most bad blood. Zach and Trey hate each other and neither is afraid to express it. Zach seethes, "Trey is your typical douchebag. He's the friend no one likes. He's truly a disgusting human being and now I gotta carry Mighty Mouse to a final." Their feud has even spread to social media, where Zach assailed Trey's character in interviews and on Twitter. As Trey explains, "At first those things kind of bothered me and then I realized Zach is just a really insecure bitch. He wants everything to go his way because he's the biggest dude in the house." While Zach's size and strength are undeniable, he has a sensitive core that may cloud his judgment. For Trey, though, this Challenge is about redemption. After a disappointing debut last season, this Baltimore boy yearns to make a name for himself and finally impress his peers with his athletic ability. Will Zach love winning more than he hates Trey? Or will this toxic pair self-destruct?

The Challenge: Battle of the Seasons

Blonde bombshell Ashley and muscle jock Zach Nichols were inseparable lovers during their season, but after a sour breakup, Zach confesses, "Ashley ripped my heart out, put it in a blender and served it to me for breakfast." But how will Ashley react when Zach hooks up with another girl in the house? Hothead Frank 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

Towering at 6'3", Zach Nichols ("Real World: San Diego") has the build of a professional football player and that's a good thing, seeing that he plays arena football. And yet, at 23, Zach's dreams of reaching the NFL may have passed him by. After graduating from Northern Michigan University with a degree in sports science and exercise physiology, Zach supplements his semi-pro football gig with a job at a physical therapy clinic.

It's not all work though, Zach likes to spend time with his two best friends—the trio call themselves "The Goon Squad." They compete to get girls while doing such colorful activities as cougar hunting. Zach does attract young babes as well and he certainly knows how to use his dreamy, good looks to his advantage. Will any of the girls in San Diego fall hard for this reserved, conservative guy who loves steaks, country music, and shooting guns? And how will Zach's small-town values clash with his more progressive roommates?

Zach graduated from Brighton High School in Michigan in 2006. His father played for the Detroit Lions for one season. Zach has two sisters and likes to play ping pong.
