Marlon Williams from "The Challenge: Rivals II" is one of the contestants on Season 24 of the MTV reality competition series in summer 2013. He is teamed up with his rival, Jordan Wiseley. When Jordan got into a heated and racially-charged fight with one of his female castmates on "The Real World: Portland," Marlon was incredibly offended at the things Jordan did and said, and a fight erupted between the two. Marlon despises Jordan's know-it-all personality.

Marlon previously starred in "The Real

The Challenge: Rivals II

Rookies can be sacrificial lambs in this game, but Marlon and Jordan are hoping to buck the trend. Former Big 12 linebacker Marlon is no stranger to intense competition, and despite being born with only one hand, Jordan has excelled in sports his entire life, from rugby to wrestling to gymnastics. Marlon explains, "Some of the people that don't know Jordan are going to underestimate him a lot. But they don't realize that him not having two hands has actually made him that much better of a person and that much more of a competitor." As impressive as their athletic abilities are, this is a pair that really knows how to push each other's buttons. Jordan admits, "We are both very high-strung competitors. We both want to be on top. We both want to be heard. And we both feel that our opinions are the best way." Know-it-all Jordan gets under everyone's skin while getting under the covers with two veteran girls, while Marlon explores his sexuality by playing both sides of the fence, hooking up with a guy and a girl. Could these rookies morph into a power pair? Or will their time in Thailand be cut short?

The Real World: Portland

The son of a preacher man, Marlon Williams was raised with strong religious values and beliefs, which causes inner conflict when you love sex as much as he does. He doesn't want to disappoint his father, who raised him after his parents divorced when he was six months old. The first time Marlon laid eyes on his mother was in the coffin at her funeral when he was in the seventh grade. As a military brat, Marlon traveled the world with his father but never stayed in one place long enough to make lifelong friends.



In high school, Marlon excelled at football and became something of a local celebrity when he was a linebacker for Texas Tech. He twice received Honorable mention in the All-Big 12 conference and was even trying to go pro, before being cut by the Canadian Football League. After his football career faded, Marlon went through a low point and in his depression, did some things that his roommates will be shocked to hear about.

Marlon is in a better place now and is currently working towards a degree in industrial engineering. People in Lubbock still recognize him as Marlon the football star, but he hates that people judge him for no longer playing. Marlon sees coming to Portland as a chance to start fresh without having to deal with people's preconceived notions about who he is today.
