|Endurance: Tehachapi, 4th place|
Don’t be fooled by the "Southern belle" exterior. Amelia is a strong competitor who plays many sports, including tennis and basketball. In fact, she could probably even form her own sports team with her five sisters and one brother! She’s also a varsity cheerleader and rides her four-wheeler on the dirt trails of Georgia.
At fifteen years old, Amelia was one of twenty new contestants selected to be a part of the fourth season of Endurance.
On the first day of competition, Amelia immediately befriended Julie and Brooke, and became a clique of girls beyond the other contestants. Amelia was one of the 14 contestants that made it through the right to stay. Before the partner selection, she informed that she wanted Shea as a partner. As a result of them speaking up, they became the Blue Team before the challenge started.
Portrayal & RelationshipsEdit
Amelia was close with everyone, but especially with Isaac of the Green Team. However, it was jeopardized in the final four, where it came time for Green to give the Samadhi out to one of the three teams remaining. While Jeszie wanted to save Red and Isaac wanted to save Purple, the logical initiative was to give it to Blue. However, it escalated to a huge conflict. Before the Samadhi was given, Amelia told the group that she would want the Samadhi to end the conflict.
- "It would just be better to give us the Samadhi, just like give it to us. It's not worth making all this conflict than just give it to us."
- Amelia attended the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, Los Angeles.
- Shea and Amelia are the only team in Endurance History to be a team without being chosen in a team selection.
- Amelia and Isaac's relationship is one of the most high-profile Endurance relationships.
