Fresh off a breakup with his Real World sweetheart, this is Dustin's first Challenge as a single man. Although he made a pact with his ex not to hook up with anyone in the house, that notion flies out the window on night one when Dustin catches the eye of a rookie girl. Last seen finishing in second place on Battle of the Seasons, Dustin has proven he can excel in the physical aspects of the game, but hopes the Free Agents format will negate his weakness--politics. Dustin notes, "A lot of people want to play politics. I just want to play the game." Will Dustin's political naivete be his Achilles heel? Or will he go the distance again?
