  1. When Team Austin's Danny and Melinda met on their season it was love at first sight. They began dating and quickly captured the hearts of fans everywhere, who were mesmerized by their storybook romance. After their show ended, Danny proposed to Melinda and the two sweethearts tied the knot into wedded bliss. But nothing lasts forever... After a short time their fairy-tale ending came crashing down and the couple divorced. Now reunited and on the same team after three years apart, will Danny and Melinda be able to work together to win money? Melinda admits, "The whole Danny and Melinda relationship thing, I'm over it. But put $$250,000 in front of anybody and you can definitely become friends with your ex." Rounding out Team Austin are Challenge newbie Lacey and elite veteran Wes, the game's notorious political mastermind. But how will Wes fare on a team with two divorcees and a rookie? Wes fears, "In my team it's difficult to say whether I'm a leader...or the glue. Danny and Melinda will never be fully over each other, and I don't know what to expect out of Lacey athletically." Wes' true incentive comes in the form of record-breaking game stats, as he brags, "When my team wins this Challenge, I will go down in history as being the person who has won more money from MTV than anybody else." Can Wes guide his team to victory? Or will Austin's complicated past ruin their chance of taking home the prize?
