Quote
Reality TV World: The season so far made it look like you lost your temper a lot and didn't have much patience for Sara or a couple of the tasks. Could you talk about that a little bit? Do you think the show's editing portrayed you to look worse than you really behaved?

Shamir Arzeno: The show and the power of editing definitely augment reality. I work in a fast paced environment where everything is due yesterday and I can be a bit impatient at times. I do feel that they played that up a bit to create drama. I think all of the teams had some degree of tension since we didn't know each other.

Reality TV World: Was it hard watching the episodes back on TV? Do you have any regrets or wish you had handled anything differently? 

Shamir Arzeno: Maybe been a little less sweaty lol no in all seriousness, I regret none of it. It was the experience of a lifetime. Seeing the way it was edited did help me grow over the last year and I have tried to be more patient and understanding towards others.

I'm glad he learned to be more patient now. The building weakness definitely showed in Leg 3's detour, which might be one cause of them finishing near the bottom. We didn't get to see the ladle "building" much, but he somehow injured himself.
Lowkey lurking until TAR returns.
I'm back!!!
Slowly fading now that TAR30 filming is over.

Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time
