Shane says Puck “like a big brother,” says Battle of the Sexes cast “got high.”
Road Rules Campus Crawl cast member Shane Landrum says that during the taping of The Real World/Road Rules Battle of the Sexes, Puck became “like a big brother” to Shane, giving him advice about how to deal with his impending fame. Shane also says that because the cast was “under lockdown” and the resort didn’t offer anything to keep them amused, “we just sat around and got high.” He also reveals that Bunim-Murray pays $1,000 for therapy for cast members, and says that appearing on the shows, “You are exploited. That’s what you’re signing up to be. Your life is taken from a different perspective. My sexuality and relationship with my parents was taken from me. They robbed me and left me with nothing.” He’ll be doing another Battle of the Sexes this fall.
