Podcast #84 – Interview with Marikh Mathias

As we know with this show, when you have 25-30 contestants every season, it’s basically impossible for every single person to get an equal amount of camera time. Even as they dwindle down the numbers through eliminations, we know how this show works with only a handful of people every season getting a lot of the camera time and the others getting very minimal. Our Podcast #84 guest, Marikh Mathias, happened to be part of the latter group on Arie’s season. She lasted 5 episodes but we don’t really know much about her – until today. One of the reasons I enjoy doing the podcast, is it allows me, and you the listener, to get to know these contestants in an unedited, unfiltered forum, which is the exact opposite of the show. Sometimes tea is spilled, sometimes not. I hope that a lot of you appreciate podcasts that don’t have tea spilled in them. If you’re listening just for that, then I personally think you’re missing out on some interesting interviews. Everyone’s got a story, and I try every week to get our guest to share theirs. Marikh is a perfect example. Really enjoyed talking to her and I think you’ll like this one. As always, if you want to respond to the interview, please include Marikh’s Twitter handle (@maroosworld), in your replies. Enjoy…

    Her voice and personality killed it for me. Could only listen to 5 minutes before turning it off!

    You did better than me. I couldn’t get past the pic (looks like she’s squishing her tatas together) and the idiotic “glam shaming”.

    Well she is undeniably stunning but maybe not too much in the dome. I bet she gets hit on alot.

    I get that everyone has a story.

    I get that the show edits things to suit their needs.

    I get that the show manipulates situations, environments, etc.

    HOWEVER…

    Glam-shaming is all Marikh.

    The entitled, vapid, shallow, bratty attitude is all Marikh.

    That chip she walks around with on her shoulder because of her ethnicity is all Marikh.
