The Challenge Biography 

  • Battle Of The Sexes

Ruthie’s rookie season on The Challenge was Battle Of The Sexes in 2003, and the girl did not mess around. 

Coming from the Real World: Hawaii, she proved to the rest of the cast that she was ready to compete.

During her first season her team made it all the way to the finals, falling short from coming in first place. 

  • Battle Of The Sexes 2

Ruthie’s Sophomore season was Battle Of The Sexes 2 in 2004. 

 Although she was still a force to be reckoned with, she was voted out the game before making it to the final in Episode 14. 

  • The Gauntlet 2

Ruthie came back for season 11 of The Challenge: The Gauntlet 2 in 2005. 

She was eliminated in episode 7 in a Gauntlet elimination against Beth called Reverse Tug Of War.  

  • The Duel II

Ruthie’s last appearance on The Challenge was 2009’s The Duel II. 

She was eliminated in episode 5 after going into a duel against Kimberly Alexander. 

Where is she now?

After 4 seasons of The Challenge, Ruthie has stayed in the Reality TV World, but instead of being in front of the camera, she now works behind the scenes in production. 

 She’s worked on shows such as Big Brother and The Bad Girls Club

When it comes to returning to The Challenge, never say never. Last month she posted a throwback video on Instagram competing on The Duel II.
