What did Carly Reeves say about her Claim to Fame exit?

Carly Reeves was the first contestant to get eliminated during the show’s second season, which was a decision she did not agree with.

After her elimination, Reeves was seen crying and exclaiming that she should “have more camera time” and “should be here longer.”

She also complained that the clues were too obviously referencing her uncle’s starring role in the iconic movie Forrest Gump.

“I was really upset,” Reeves explained during an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“I think I overreacted a little bit, but I’m an emotional, very dramatic person. I was really angry that I didn’t get a chance to play as long as some of other contestants.

“I mean, there was no one to be angry at. I was just angry in general at myself, and at the fact that I was going home. And then that turned to complete despair and sadness,” she continued.

“I even say, like, ‘I should get more camera time!’ That’s just so silly of me to say. But I also was just saying things out of my mouth.”

Later in the interview, Reeves told the outlet that she wanted her uncle to watch the episode but hoped she didn’t embarrass him.

“I hope so. I mean, maybe I don’t want him to watch it because I don’t want to embarrass him for any reason,” Reeves said.

“I hope I don’t embarrass him, but I don’t think I do. So, I would love for him to watch it, because I think it’s hilarious…

“He’s happy for me no matter what. He did ask me, ‘Did you make some money?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, I made a little bit.’ And he said, ‘Ok, good.’ So, he was happy that I made a little money.”
