Ruthie is well known as an unafraid ass kicker who emerged as a leader during her two turns in the Battle of the Sexes challenges. 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.
