VH1access Update Interview- Justin Derke (Ton Of Cash)

Update Interview

I'm planning to some update interviews this summer. I got to chance to do an interview with fan favorite Justin Derke, who was on Ton Of Cash. He talks about experience on the show and what is he doing now.  Follow him @JustinVH1

1) How are you Justin?
I'm good, just living and loving life! :)

2)Let's talk about 'Ton of Cash'. What made you decide to audition for this show?
I decided to audition for it because of the flyer and it basically asked if I wanted to win money and I was like HELL YEAH!!! 

3)How was your experience on the show? What was your favorite challenge?
My experience was amazing! It was difficult and challenging, but well worth it. My favorite challenge had to be the finale, because I had never been to Vegas before and it was such a rush to be running through the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino looking for the bundles of money.

4)Do you still keep in touch with the other contestants on the show?
I do! I actually moved in with Amie who won the show, and our friendship has completely grown and been an amazing time. After the show aired and everything I had a couple falling outs with a couple others, but the others I keep in contact with via facebook and twitter.

5)Have you audition for other reality shows before 'Ton of Cash'?
I tried to audition for the real world, but I got sooooooo lost looking for the place where they were holding the auditions I gave up haha

6)How you feel about VH1 poorly advertising the show?
It was sad. I didn't understand why they didn't do much for the show. I didn't know what was going on, so it left me confused sad and agry.

7) Did you regret being on the show after seeing the ratings?
ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! Granted the ratings were awful and the show didn't do well, I met Amie who is the love of my life (figuratively), got to experience areas of the world I never would have gone otherwise and even tho we weren't as big as the basketballwives, I still got recognition and had a good time riding on the small time of fame I had lol.

8)I've seen pictures of you in drag. Do you still do drag?
I do! I don't do drag as hardcore as the girls on Rupauls Drag Race, I just like to go out and fun in drag because I feel powerful and I'm beautiful so of course I have to.

9)Let's talk about what you are doing now.  What are you doing now? Do you have any plans in the future? Would do another reality show?
Right now I live in Salt Lake City Utah with Amie trying to get everything in my life together (because I was on the show for being in debt). My plans for hte future are to just live life to the fullest and be happy and just be successful basically. And of course I would DEFINITELY do another reality show! I had so much fun, and all the attention, the cameras, the lights the everything about it was my calling, just wish it would happen again soon!!! I'm waiting on Bad Gays Bad Girls Club, just more fabulous ;)

10)Thank you for this interview. Do you want to give a shout out to anyone?
I want to give a shoutout to Amie! If I hadn't done the show, I wouldn't have met her and Amie has been the bane of my existence, and shoutout to my friend Megan who helped me get through it all!
