I never thought I’d be writing about Devin Walker as one of the greatest challengers of all time, but here we are.

Partnered with Cheyenne on his rookie season, Rivals III, the pair made the final, but it was one of the worst seasons by finalists ever.

They lost the first elimination of the season against Johnny/Jessica, but came back into the game after Leroy/Averey and Brandon/Brianna left.

Devin/Cheyenne were a bottom-tier team for most of the season, but they were excellent at the white skull pick, saving themselves six times from elimination.

Devin/Cheyenne became the first team/individual to make a final without winning a daily challenge or elimination. They placed third in the final behind Bananas/Sarah and Vince/Jenna.

Devin’s worst season was clearly Dirty 30, where he got purged right off the bat and lost to Darrell in the redemption challenge.

Devin had his signature moment on Vendettas, getting Tony to throw in Bananas against him, taking out his arch-nemesis in Not So Bright. But he failed to make the final, losing in the Help Me Rhonda purge.

He was supposed to be partnered with Bananas for Final Reckoning, but had to leave after the death of his father. He came back later in the season as a mercenary with Cory, where they won two (suspicious) eliminations against Zach/Amanda and Jozea/Da’Vonne to get into the game.

But it was short-lived, as Cory’s body slam of Tony got them kicked off after competing in just one mission.

After a three-season layoff, Devin returned on Double Agents. After his partner Nicole’s injury, Devin was an easy target for the house in episode three, and ended up in elimination against his mentor Wes.
