Sheckler told Graham Bensinger “That was definitely the last straw for me, cause that’s already a very intimate piece of your life that you don’t want people to know about or see,” added “So we break up once, and then cameras are on, we break up again, cut… And then, you know, they come over to me and they’re like, ‘Hey, that wasn’t enough. We need to do it again.” Also said, “To blatantly have to hurt people’s feelings over and over again for the sake of television – for ratings literally – that rocked me.”
Despite the traumatization he experienced, he said doesn’t regret his time on the show because “it served a purpose,” added “I learned the lessons I was supposed to learn from doing it, but I wouldn’t take it back either. Bro, I was 17 years old,” he said. “I was a kid that got an incredible opportunity, was in a very interesting part of my career where it just seemed to be going up and up and up, and I figured this was the next best step.”
Sheckler said, “And so that’s where the show became acting and it became like this thing where it was like, ‘This is not what we signed up for and this is not what it started out as.” Added “It broke my heart and it like … borderline traumatized me. I didn’t get in a relationship after the show until I was 25 years old.” He allegedly said about the production team “They were making fun of me for crying about hearing that my parents were going to get divorced, and I heard about it on camera,” said, “That was the first time I heard about it.” Since his interview, his fans are curious to know more about his Girlfriend.
