High: Ruthie is a kick-ass chick who doesn't seem to be afraid of anything. She led the girl's team in Battle of the Sexes -- outperforming the guys in many missions -- but unfortunately didn't win the one that counted.
Lows: Getting her stomach pumped on the first episode of Real World: Hawaii and later getting voted out of the house by her roommates (until she took control of her alcohol problem).
Relationships:Steven jokes about having had a "thing" with Ruthie, but Steven also has a "thing" for being funny.
The Duel II
Ruthie is well known as an unafraid ass kicker who emerged as a leader during her two turns in the Battle of the Sexeschallenges. Since facing her demons while on The Real World: Hawaii, she has traveled to colleges and universities across the United States to speak about being responsible with alcohol, as well as on social issues like diversity, racism and conflict resolution. She has also brought her alcohol awareness discussion to the U.S. military. "I don't say not to drink," she says. "I just say to be safe about it." She's also studying music supervision and cinematography and remains very active, the latter being helpful for her appearance in The Duel II. And there's no denying that keeping a sober head in this game will be a substantial asset.
