The FORT interview with Rob Campos
Next week on For Love or Money 2, attorney Rob Campos returns to the Bel Air mansion where it all began. The folks at NBC have kept Rob very busy these last two weeks granting a whirl of pre-show interviews before the August 11 episode, but he was good enough to take the time to answer a few questions for Fans of Reality TV readers by email.
Q. Rob, why reality TV as a means of meeting Miss Right?
I am always up for an adventure, and I thought this would be an amazing opportunity. I really trusted the producers from NBC when they told me they had found a bunch of incredible women.
Q. Many of us were screaming at our television sets last week as we found that you would be reappearing on the Aug. 11 show. How did it feel to return to the mansion and face Erin again?
It was weird being on the other side of the equation. Itís a very different dynamic when you are in the house with a bunch of guys. (Although, they were all very nice to me.)
Q. For Love or Money has quite a following at the Fans of Reality TV site. Have you visited the site since the show aired?
No, I have not. I will have to check it out.
Q. Many of us were surprised that you chose Erin. Even Erin believed that you would ultimately choose Paige. Can you tell us what the factors in your final decision were?
I just believed that I had a stronger connection with Erin. And I believed she was a better long term fit for me.
Q. Did you believe that Erin would choose you over the cash prize? And how did Erinís final decision affect you?
I didnít know if Erin would pick me or not. But I was willing to risk the money for the chance to be with her. I also felt that I had to follow my heart. I couldnít be dishonest with myself or Paige by picking her for the wrong reasons. But, I have no regrets.
Q. How did your appearance on the show and the subsequent bit of controversy you encountered affect you professionally?
My practice continues to go very well. I practice criminal defense and have 4 trials scheduled for the month of August.
Q. Finally, Rob Ė many of us did not anticipate your return to the show in For Love or Money 2. And so of course weíre full of curiosity. Will you return for one show or the rest of the season?
Look to see me for more than just one show.
Again, Rob, thank you so much for taking the time to answer these questions.
