“They edited a lot of things, and unfortunately, the production decided to paint me as the villain. But that is not right, because he said horrible things about us, and disrespected me at every moment during filming. This good guy you’re watching on television is not how things are for real. He said and did a lot of things that aren’t being shown.”
“What was shown on the show is not everything that happened. Behind what happened there is the motives and the reason why I was mad that day. Beside the absurd that he has said about all of us, he had been provoking me and disrespecting me. Right on the first episode, he called me stupid. Not at any moment did I go down to his level.”
“I called him a motherf—er, but I don’t speak English. I didn’t really know what it means and I don’t consider it a cuss word.”
“If you learned about all he has said and done, and you still cheer for him, you’ll have my respect. I will just tell you not to lose your money because I will win this fight.”
