* DoesNotLikeGuns: He's said on Twitter that while he admires the engineering of a gun's design and enjoys using them in myths, he's never actually owned one and is okay with that.

%%* BadassBeard
%%* BadassDriver

to:

%%* BadassBeard
BadassBeard: Sports a red goatee.
%%* BadassDriverBadassDriver: He's a great driver, as seen in the various car-related myths they have tested.



%%* ButtMonkey

to:

%%* ButtMonkeyButtMonkey: He sometimes get poked at by Jamie. He and Tory also tend to get hurt when testing myths.



* CharacterDevelopment: Yes, it even applies to people who aren't playing characters. In the show's formative days, Adam was more lively than Jamie, yes, but certainly ''far'' more reserved than you see him in future episodes. Apparently as he grew hair, his personality became more vibrant (he started the show with a very short haircut and no beard).

* DudeNotFunny: An InUniverse example. Adam enjoys a prank as much as the next person, and probably dishes out more than anyone else on the show by far. But when the build team shocked him with a ''real'' electrical current during the "Ark of the Covenant" myth, he did '''NOT''' take it well.

* NeverGetsDrunk: Plays with the trope. It's often difficult to notice when he's drunk compared to sober, and he seems to be immune to the [[TenWithATwo beer goggles]] effect. However, as shown in the "Driving Blind" episode, he ''can'' get sufficiently drunk to be a road hazard, even by proxy...not to mention a bit goofy.

* MemeticBadass: If he isn't among the fanbase, he sure as hell is [[InUniverse among the cast and crew]], who regularly describe him as "abnormally strong". In the "Car Cling" myth, Adam even cites a number of the {{Badass}} things that Jamie's done over the course of the show, such as climbing up the side of a building using only a rope, and bashing down a door with his shoulder. [[invoked]]

* GreenAroundtheGills: His WeaksauceWeakness. Gets seasick during pretty much any myth where he and Jamie take to the water. When the show tested seasickness cures, the NASA-inspired motion sickness chair often triggered a nauseous response within seconds. He even got motion sickness in a few not-so-obvious scenarios (swinging the bone cage, bungee-jump apple bobbing).

* GreenAroundtheGills: Though not to anywhere near the extent of Adam - he lasts much longer in the motion sickness chair during the seasickness cure trials before eventually succumbing. (Hungover, though, [[NauseaFuel is completely another story]].)

* KilledOffForReal: In the Grand Finale, he was dressed as a superhero, attached to a rocked sled, and sent into a concrete wall at almost 800 mph, whereupon he promptly disappears in a small flash of light. The reunion show has Adam giving small glass cubes with the largest pieces to Grant, Tory, and Kari as keepsakes.
