Recently, Black Talent TV had the pleasure of interviewing a reality TV star who earned the nickname “Killa Kam” on her debut season of MTV’s The Challenge and this fierce competitor is Kam Williams. In 2017, Kam first appeared on MTV’s Are You The One?(AYTO?) before then appearing on The Challenge: Vendettas. She quickly became a fan favorite after winning eliminations against some of the show’s strongest competitors. Next, she played for charity on The Challenge: Champs vs. Stars and is currently vying for the grand prize in The Challenge: Final Reckoning.
Besides being on AYTO?and The Challenge, Kam is a Vlogger and businesswoman. Her YouTube channel, iAmKamiAM, has over 43,000 subscribers and videos range from Q&A’s to hair tutorials. Also, also has a hair & beauty company called Kam Kollection that’s “mission is to take the beauty world by storm and create content for variety of women.”
Check out our interview with Kam Williams where she chooses which type of video is her favorite to film, what fans can still expect from this season of The Challenge: Final Reckoning, and much more below.
1-Did you ever see yourself being a TV personality?
I’ve never really seen myself being a TV personality. My personality in general was always special—even growing up I’ve always been weird and stood out. I’ve developed a love for making YouTube videos where, looking back, I think got me use to being on camera and entertaining. The thought of being on TV wasn’t really a farfetched idea.
2-What is your favorite moment from AYTO? Season 5?
My favorite moment from my season was entering that house. AYTO? was my first TV show and that adrenaline that pumps through you is such a great feeling of excitement.
3-Even though The Challenge: Final Reckoning is still airing, which of your two challenges(Vendettas & Final Reckoning) was your favorite?
I’d say Final Reckoning is my favorite so far because if you talk the talk, you have to be able to back it up and walk the walk. On Vendettas, the power really stayed the same and really showed no shift. This season, you can’t hide behind others.
4-During Final Reckoning, you managed to come up with a master plan to get two specific teams into the elimination round and it worked. Did you have any doubts that this plan might backfire and cost you the game?
With my plan, there were only two possible outcomes. I prepared for both. I had no doubts because I knew in advance the possible outcomes and what I would do with either one.
5-What can fans expect from the rest of Final Reckoning?
Were now midway through the season–you can expect more drama and action! And, as I love to say, more earning of stripes.
6-Which video is your favorite to film: Tutorials, Q&A’s, or Vlogs?
I love filming tutorials. This is the reason I developed a love for YouTube. As a visual learner, I created a platform to cater to others like myself. This platform was up to date with my style, which would allow all of my subscribers to grow and keep up with me.
7-How did you come up with the Kam Kollection?
I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit and wanted my own. I always played around with names for my own company, and that one stuck. I someday plan on expanding my Kollection!
8-What advice would you give to someone who wants to participate in a reality TV show?
My best advice is for people to simply be themselves! Don’t try to be what you think they want. Be you!
9-What is NEXT for Kam Williams?
In my future, I plan on expanding my company, Kam Kollection, and continuing to make my Team Kam fans proud and surprising them with upcoming projects!
