Debut: Presenting My New Team

  Tami Pickering-Adamson[3] is the mother of Tea'. Tami performed ballet professionally,[4][5] her dance career ending after a knee injury.[6]

Tami is also known as a master in self defense,[7] a skill that was tested versus Christy H. early in her appearances on the show.

At one time, she was the founder and captain of the "Femme Fatales," an all-female paintball team. Known partly for their good looks, Tami and other team members were featured in places such as CNN, Maxim, and Ramp magazine. Tami and her husband own several businesses,[8] such as Extreme Rage Alternative Sporting Store.[9][10]

    "Her husband, Todd Adamson, plays paintball professionally, and together they own Extreme Rage Alternative Sporting Store, which sells paintball, skateboarding, wakeboarding and other sporting goods." "The Femme Fatales have gotten recognition both for playing well and for looking good. Several have been featured in Maxim magazine and other media outlets."
  10. "Some would say that it was because of the high standards of being “good-looking” or “hot” aided in gaining that recognition since some of the girls from the original roster made it to such national magazines like Maxim and Ramp magazine"
    And it’s obvious that the concept did work for us because of the support we’re getting from companies like Dye not to mention the exposure we got on a national level with Maxim, for instance."
