    Ep. 214: Amber M

    Derrick Kosinski & Scott Yager are joined by Amber M.

    Amber (@amba1210) & her "Itty Bitty Committee" aren't playing like your typical Challenge Rookies. This past week they pulled off a hell of a hit on Tori & Aneesa after Big T & CT took home the Daily Challenge. They rallied the house together to vote in Aneesa and Big T pulled the trigger sending her in against her best friend Tori. This was particularly validating for Amber, who had been on the receiving end of "you're too small" claims from many in the house, namely Tori. Amber joins Derrick (@DerrickMTV) and Scott (@SHOTOFYAGER) to talk about Are You The One, making her Challenge debut, why it was tough being a Challenge Rookie, what she knew about Tori and her fellow competitors going into the show, what LA Club Life is like, what Drama we didn't see on camera AND MORE!!!
