Daisy of Love’s TJ Markiewicz aka Flex was the final contestant to be eliminated from the show’s finale last night. Daisy De LaHoya chose rocker/heart breaker, London, whom she had earlier eliminated to be her “Daisy of Love.”
In a new interview with VH1, Flex talks about his time on the show, not being that into Daisy, plus his bromance with 12 Pack. Off topic, why is he wearing so much eyeliner in the above photo?
Below are some excerpts from his new interview -
You didn’t seem too broken up about not being chosen by Daisy.
I had feelings for her but I didn’t like her-like her like that. We didn’t have the connection that she had with London, so I knew we weren’t meant for each other.
Were you insincere when you said how much you liked her?
When you’re in the moment, you say how you feel, I guess. There was a lot of alcohol involved (laughs). She was the only girl in a house of 20 guys. I was sincere when I said I had feelings for her, and I thought she was a great girl. But toward the end, after she brought London back, it was just like, OK. Obviously we know who’s going to win because she had that extreme crush on him in the beginning. The show was over when he walked back through the door.
Is there anything to be said for you just playing the game?
Everybody wants to win, but for me it wasn’t a game. I went there seeing if we had a chance. She’s a cool chick. I had no baggage. I didn’t have a girlfriend or anything that would have dragged me down. Some of the other guys had kids or girlfriends or had been married and divorced, but not me. I was 22, I had a job, I was successful, so I basically wanted to try something new.
So, just to be sure, when you said, “I’m falling in love with you,” you just chalk that up to being in the moment?
Well…yeah. I knew that London and her would not make a good couple. It’s hard to explain because you know that someone isn’t right for her, and even though she doesn’t like you, you still don’t want her to make a bad decision. I knew I would be a better fit for her than London. I knew I could take care of her and not disrespect her like the way she’s been disrespected in the past.
So you don’t think it’ll last with London?
No, I don’t think it’s going to last at all. But I wish them the best.
