I’m a genuinely nice person, but the truth is it is a competition and I’m there for one reason. To win. And in order to do that I have to …

Which means always being super nice, extra friendly and totally helpful to everyone. Now the veterans know this, so we may smile but really were like …

Because we feel like …

Because …

Even though everyone expects us to be like …

Were really not. We really do like each other and actually are like …
