Preston Roberson-Charles 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, Ryan Knight, with whom he clashed on their "Real World" season over sexual preferences and lifestyle, and their animosity only intensified when they were paired together on a challenge.

Roberson-Charles previously competed in "The Challenge: Battle of the Seasons," in which he was teamed up with his fellow cast members

The Challenge: Rivals II

Knight and Preston go together like gym socks and high heels, but that doesn't mean they aren't a force to be reckoned with. Surrounded by perfect physical specimens, Knight and Preston are constantly underestimated as competitors, but wouldn't want it any other way. Knight reveals, "People look at us and are like, 'Hey, we want to bring these guys to the Final.' What they don't know is Preston is a runner. Preston can run for days." Their rivalry dates back to their stint on The Real World: Back to New Orleans. Preston recalls, "Knight and I have always had a very messy relationship. If Knight's opening his mouth, he's saying something offensive. I don't know how we're going to get along." Can Preston keep his heart in the game long enough to knock out a win? Or will Knight's mind games drive him away once and for all?

The Challenge: Battle of the Seasons

Knight will have to set aside his differences with Preston, who is far more at home on the dance floor than the playing field. "It's not like I ever was doing sports or anything. I think for me, my personal challenge is going to be to keep my heart in it," Preston notes.

The Real World: New Orleans

Preston Roberson-Charles' first childhood memory is of crying in the back seat of the car while his mother went to score crack. Needless to say, his family life was anything but ideal. When he was 17, his mother essentially abandoned him, leaving Preston to fend for himself. Despite a rough childhood, he's somehow managed to grow into a carefree individual who walks to the beat of his own drum. As a proud, young, gay, black man, Preston strives to be the center of attention. He has no filter, but what he does have is a bitchy side, which he's not afraid to show. In fact, he encourages confrontation, happily putting you in your place if need be. But be careful. If you push Preston too far, something is bound to get thrown in the toilet. Known for his outlandish antics and urge to mingle, we're sure Preston will be getting his fill on the New Orleans strip.
