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…
