Every Monday before Tuesday night’s episode is always a mix of emotions. The anticipation is on another level as we wait to see how much will be shown and how much won’t be shown. A bunch of us cast members text each other for a large part of the day trying to remind each other of what even happened for the upcoming episode since its been a while. “Is this the one where so-and-so comes back to the bungalows? Is this the one where we go on that crazy group date? Is this the one where so-and-so gets sent home??? Did I cry in this one??” NOTE: we all cried. All the time. lol
So for tomorrow’s episode it’s no different. By now, hopefully its become clear that it’s impossible to fit everything we shot into a single 42 minute episode. There are hours and hours and hours of footage that will never be seen. Imagine three or more cameras following your every move from the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep, but only less than an hour of that footage will be shown; its been a fascinating, exciting, disappointing, and yet completely entertaining process to see what actually ends up in the final cut.
Oh, the drama. If there was no drama, reality TV would cease to exist. But man, when it comes to the REAL WORLD, I think the drama that people create is far, far worse. The cyber bullying is insane. I can’t believe some of the things I read about each and every single one of us cast members. It’s appalling. On the other hand, it’s so much fun to read all the positive and encouraging messages and comments. Those really save the day and I know I speak on behalf of all of us when I say thank you!!!!!
So that’s what this is… I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for going on this crazy ride with us and for watching, tweeting, insta-loving and everything else in between. Thank you, thank you, thank you for those of you who know that this is a reality TV show. Let me say it louder so the people in the back can hear – this is a reality TV show!!! Do not, I repeat do not judge or make assumptions on who we are as individuals based on what you are seeing on your TV screens. Episode 8 is tomorrow and you know I’ll be writing a blog right after. Here are some previews for tomorrow:
…. look good!!! x o x o !
