The Ruins

Boston Real Worlder Syrus has been busy since we last saw him on The Gauntlet 2, dabbling in many business ventures -- everything from a clothing line to video games to a dog walking service. Syrus may be the oldest player on The Ruins, but no one should count out this veteran on the playing field. A past Challenge champion, Syrus knows what it takes to win and has the grit to get there. Make no mistake about it, Syrus is not afraid of going head-to-head against his younger competition -- in fact, he welcomes it. But can this old schooler find his place in a new game in Thailand?
