A Reality Check With ... Tessa Walker (NBC's "Age of Love")

23-year-old Tessa Walker doesn't care what people think of her. She can't stand pushover guys and because of her headstrong attitude she insists she won't get along with anyone in the house. An executive assistant from Peoria, AZ, Tessa enjoys being pretty and well kept, but knows that she is more than just a pretty face. She sits down with RealityCheckByGina to talk about why she wanted out of Age of Love.

RC: How would you describe yourself?

Tessa: I would say I’m an intelligent, fun woman.

RC: What made you want to be part of Age of Love?
Tessa: It was an exciting new concept. I thought it would be an opportunity to meet someone I wouldn’t normally get to meet. I was very excited about meeting Mark – he was society standard.

RC: Were you in the dark as much as the women in their 40s about the twists?
Tessa: Yeah, we didn’t even know about the 40s until elimination night. We were told for a whole week that we were the only ones there for him. We were shocked & pissed off actually. The 40s had extra time with him. We only had 5 minutes before the first elimination.

RC: Some of the older women I interviewed from the show felt you 20s got a bad rap. Do you agree?
Tessa: They absolutely stereotyped it to make it interesting. They asked us ahead of time, “Are you going to be upset if we make you look bad?” It’s to be expected, though. It’s reality tv.

RC: Your bio states that you didn’t expect to get along with any of the women. What did you mean by that?
Tessa: What I actually said was that I don’t get along with women. I don’t care about gossip and I don’t have time for drama. The women that were in the house were amazing, though, and I was really fortunate to meet them. If I was stuck with typical 20-year-olds, I would’ve pulled my hair out! I formed good relationships with all the women in their 20s. We could not listen to music, we could not go out the front door, so there was forced interaction with these women.

RC: Did you form bonds with any of the women in their 40s?
Tessa: I had the most in common with Jen. We had the same outlooks, values, and morals. Kelli was my roommate & she was just a breath of fresh air. It took me a little while to get to know Maria but she has a lot of depth and really listens to people when they talk. Jayanna was just classless & tactless the way she was against the 20s but she later apologized.

RC: I heard that you were saying you wanted to leave on the night you were eliminated. What happened?
Tessa: I told him on the date how I felt & I compared my feelings to his connection with Amanda. He understood what I was saying. There wasn’t any romantic connection but we had a lot in common & he’s a great guy.

RC: Do you have any regrets or are you glad you did the show?

Tessa: No, I’m glad I did it. It was a great opportunity & I left with five great girlfriends.

RC: Are you planning on staying in the entertainment industry or are you back to your life in Arizona?

Tessa: I’m in Arizona now. I was contacted by my agent to do the show so there’s definitely interest there. But it nothing comes my way, I’m happy with my life & my career.

A new episode of Age of Love airs tonight on NBC at 9pm EST

My husband and I took a snorkeling adventure from the
Keys of Florida. We were told how the jellyfish were rampant in your neighborhood but it was safe to
search just avoid them, if they actually do sting it'll be unconfortable yet not painful. I knew growing up a pool and i also would have been a confident swimmer. We had arrived told not to leave our partners and try to be around in arms length. Which is just good snorkel safety. Out in outside ocean 30 feet from the boat, I am mesmorized through the reef, My husband and I are bopping around mentioning fish to each other. Very romantic! Then every one of the sudden I am water around my snorkel, and my instinct should be to grab at something to acquire my barings. Only there is nothing to grab, I am on view ocean! We are 30 feet from your boat! We're coughing i research to see
pink circle Jellyfish left and right! I panic anxiety and
pull off for your boat leaving my hubby behind.

I can feel him grabbing my foot searching in order to me
aside, in what he later informed me was his make an attempt to
save me on the jellyfish school I'm swimming towords, but it really was past too far.... I could truthfully feel what seemed like little beestings all up my arm and leg! Epic fail in the romance department!
