Damian: oh, yeah… it was a reality show. it wasn’t actually Ryan who decided that, it was the producers who decided to tell Samuel first. It was kind of weird and mean, but it definitely made good TV. We’re really good friends now, I feel that we’ve known each other for a long time. He’s seen me at my lowest low and he’s seen me at my highest high, and now we’re working together. He always gave me criticism but it was always constructive and something I could work on. And it’s realistically the reason I’m here, why I went to work, and he kept me in, week by week. The man’s a genius, and I’ve just got so much respect for him.
