A successful weekend yet again for the Fan Appreciation Party last Friday night in Las Vegas. Had fun meeting everyone, the Joe Millionaire cast was a hit, and am looking forward to next years already. I talk about that briefly in the first few minutes of today’s podcast before talking to Edgar de Santiago from “Temptation Island.” Spoke to Gillian two weeks ago, so I wanted to get Edgar on to hear how he viewed things that went down in Hawaii and what he’s been up to since. Really appreciate his openness and his accountability for all his actions, both on the show and before the show. A really good talk with Edgar who’s probably one of the more introspective contestants that show has ever had. He’s well liked by cast and you can hear it come across in this podcast I believe. You just don’t hear accountability like this very much anymore, especially when it comes to reality TV contestants. So thanks again to Edgar for his time and his honesty. Hope you enjoy…

(SPOILERS) I begin by briefly recapping my Fan Appreciation Party last weekend in Vegas and talk a little about BIP starting filming. Then Edgar joins me (13:03) to discuss his time on the show, what made him go on, that first bonfire which derailed him immediately, does he think he overreacted to the first clip he saw, how therapy has helped him, where he’s at with Gillian now, and much, much more.
