Josh Clinton: Hey Brynn.
Brynn Smith: Hey Josh.
JC: How are you?
JC: Great. So what have you been doing in the last five years?
BS: Just making a family.
JC: So you are married now and have kids?
BS: Yeah, two sons.
JC: Cool. So why did you decide to come back and do this reunion show?
BS: I thought it was a good opportunity to go back and live with six roommates in Las Vegas for two weeks of non-stop action and adventure.
JC: Right. Did you like the original Real World experience?
BS: Um, it’s always interesting. I don’t have anything against it and I would probably do it again.
JC: Well we didn’t see you for a few years. Was there a reason for that?
BS: Being on these shows can be a little dramatic, so that wouldn’t be such a great idea while trying to raise a family. It really wasn’t approriate at that time, but now I have expressed interest in doing future Challenges if the opportunity comes up. So we will see what happens.
JC: Nice. Are you friends with everyone from Las Vegas cast now?
BS: I don’t have enemies, if that is what you are asking. I talk to Alton and Irulan all the time, but lost contact with the others. Mainly just Irulan and Alton. They’ve made a few trips to Portland and I’ve gone to New York a few times as well. Other than that, not really.
JC: The original season you were a go-go dancer and having threesomes in the hot tub. Since you are married now, are you worried that you may be too boring this time?
BS: I don’t really care if people think I’m boring or not. It doesn’t really matter to me. I don’t think I’m boring, though.
JC: Right. You just won’t be as dramatic this time?
BS: I don’t see how they could have any footage to make me look bad or as dramatic.
JC: Yeah, it would seem like the hot tub now would be of better use to wash babies than have orgies in.
BS: Yeah, I think that’s what you are probably going to find out with this show.
JC: Right. Do you think that you were accurately portrayed in the original season?
BS: I can’t say that I didn’t do anything that was shown on TV, because obviously they have the footage. The editors get paid big bucks to do what they do, but they can only show what we give them. I say it’s 50/50, though.
JC: Knowing what you know now, if you could go back and give yourself some advice 5 years ago, what would you say?
BS: To have more fun and not take things so seriously.
JC: Did you have a favorite moment from the original season that maybe wasn’t aired on TV?
BS: Yeah, there was a lot of stuff that didn’t make it to the air. We’re filming seven days a week, so they can only show so much in such a short show with commercials. I had a lot of friends and family visit that didn’t get shown. That side of my life.
JC: Yeah. Do you think that if the show wasn’t set in Las Vegas do you think that there would have been less drama?
BS: There would have been less drinking. But other than that the real core drama would still probably have happened.
JC: Have you made any lasting friendships from the show?
BS: Mainly Irulan and Alton. They’ve made a few trips to Portland.
JC: So after you do a Challenge or two and then reunion show, what do you want to do in your life?
BS: Just raise my family, be a mommy, and just living the life in the real world where you have jobs and family.
JC: Right. So what can we look forward to seeing on this reunion show?
BS: I think you can look forward to a lot less drunken moments, which will be kinda interesting. There’s a lot more real people and real emotions and real group experiences this time, whereas before it was just a lot of drinking and exploring things. But now that we have done all of that, I think it will be a lot different.
JC: Cool. Well that’s all I have. Good luck with everything.
BS: Thanks Josh.
