The Jay McCarroll Interview
Yeah, um, a little more involved, of course, because I was just the subject matter. Whereas, there was no trying to align me with Wendy [Pepper] to walk somewhere or something. So, it was a more personal experience, I guess. I didn't have like any say or anything. But I was also kind of like, "Where do you want me to stand?" Whereas on Project Runway, they never told you to do anything. They just kind of had to capture what they captured when they captured it.
I know the people on the site are excited for the show.
On Television Without Pity? I fucking love it. I just read the Project Runway threads, which are always great. The readers are always fucking so smart on there. My sister and I -- that's our favorite message board.
Yeah, they can have some pretty strong opinions.
That's true. Well, they bring up things that you never think about. Like, it's like they study every possible second.
Yeah, they can analyze and discuss the smallest detail, down to facial expressions.
They study that shit.
So, I have a few questions that I thought might interest our readers. First, I feel obligated to ask you about Wendy Pepper.
Oh, Wendy Pepper. She's a pretty effective reality TV star, isn't she?
I'll say. It seemed like she was continually rewarded for bad behavior.
Oh, kind of, yeah. I agree. She's, um, I would venture to say that she's probably bipolar. She definitely has something clinically wrong with her and there's more to her story than you know, that I'm not really at liberty to talk about. There's a secret side of Wendy.
I remember from the finale of the first season, she was a part of the Peace Corps?
Yeah. She was in the Peace Corps. She studied literature or something. Yeah, like, went to Tibet. Yeah, interesting.
That doesn't really jive with, kind of, the Wendy that we saw.
No. Well, that was my entire point with her. You know, "Why aren't you showing people the real you?" I don't know. She didn't see it that way, I guess.
