Adam King from "Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Ruins" is one of the contestants on the MTV reality competition series. Adam ("The Challenge: Rivals") is paired with his rival, CT Tamburello. Adam was originally on "The Real World: Paris."


Last seen on "Duel 2" getting brutally punched in the face by his former "Real World: Paris" roommate, CT, Adam King returns for another shot at Challenge glory. But has Adam gotten over the notorious incident? Adam admits, "You have to tell yourself

that you're a better person moving forward. I'm trying to get to a place where I can forgive him for what he did and take responsibility for my part in it. But it is tough!" One thing that Adam can look forward to this season is discovering a "Challenge" romance.

The Ruins

On the Challengers team, Adam King was last seen trading bloody punches with CT Tamburello on "The Duel 2," in a fight he calls one of the biggest mistakes of his life. Having been eliminated for fighting before the game even started, Los Angeles native Adam is eager to show that he is a hardcore competitor who can steer clear of trouble. While Adam isn't the biggest guy, he is quick on his feet and knows how to play the game, but has yet to win a "Challenge." Will Thailand finally provide Adam with time to shine or will he leave "The Ruins" still looking for a win?

The Duel 2

Adam King is not big, but he's quick and he's a master strategist. He also won in the final Gauntlet, outlasting Danny to survive as a member of the Rookies that took the prize on a technicality in that Challenge. Since then, he lived in Los Angeles and Boston before settling in Tempe, Arizona, and is bartending in nearby Scottsdale. And since he's living with five roomates, he's got his share of "Real World"- style parties, excitement and drama. Now he's headed down under to New Zealand to compete for another big prize. But with all of that partying back at home, is he in shape to survive the punishing challenges that await?
