JD Ordonez from "The Challenge: Battle of the Seasons" is one of the contestants on Season 23 of the MTV reality competition series in fall 2012. JD ("Real World Challenge") is teamed up with his fellow cast members Chet Cannon, Devyn Simone and Sarah Rice from "The Real World: Brooklyn."

Real World Road Rules Challenge: Cutthroat

A "Challenge" rookie, JD Ordonez is eager to make a name for himself, claiming, "I have nothing to lose and everything to prove." This dolphin trainer has recently relocated to San Diego. JD looks forward to representing the gay community and hopes America can see that a gay man can win a "Challenge." JD may have lofty goals, but after showing off his temper on "Real World: Brooklyn," who knows what to expect. Will JD prove his point or lose his cool?

The Real World: Brooklyn

Life wasn't always smooth sailing for JD Ordonez, who was raised by an abusive father unsupportive of his son's homosexuality. When his godmother took him to Sea World at age five, he vowed that one day he would become a dolphin trainer. He graduated from the University of Miami, with a degree in marine biology, and at the ripe age of 18 became one of the youngest dolphin trainers in the world. Despite his age, JD is mature beyond his years, which might be why he finds himself attracted to older men. As a bartender at night, he has always worked hard to play hard, but when his overwhelming schedule gets to him, watch out for his fiery Latino temper.
