Tara Reid has had a tough go of it since becoming a member of Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test Season 2. While the American Pie actress will get briefly promoted within the hit survival present’s most up-to-date episode, issues don’t get essentially get simpler for her.
When we final noticed Reid — who was caught making an attempt to smuggle cigarettes into the camp — she was referred to as in to talk with SAS teacher Billy Billingham, the place she defined why she determined to hitch the collection.
“I get bullied lots and I simply wished to make myself a stronger particular person and I believed this might assist,” she mentioned by way of tears. “Everyone says like, ‘She received so outdated trying, she appears dangerous. She appears like shit.’ People nonetheless decide me off once I was 18. I’m 47 now. I can’t play American Pie anymore.”
Reid continued, “I really feel like generally I’m like a damaged fowl, sort of. I need to have thicker pores and skin and never let individuals trouble me a lot.”
The focus stays on her in Episode 2, titled “Exposure,” when Billingham decides to advertise the star to Duty Recruit, which places her accountable for her co-stars. The former army operative explains that the place is normally given to the “weaker” individuals within the group to see “if they’ll step as much as the plate.” But earlier than he tells her concerning the new function, he delivers certainly one of his extra brutal insults.
“You are nonetheless trying like an unadulterated bag of crap!” he yells as she scurries out of the barracks. “You, at the moment are the Duty Recruit. Your accountability [is] to verify everyone is able to go on time. I need everyone on that sq. at 0700 hours.”
As if that isn’t dangerous sufficient, Reid even turns into a punching bag for her fellow recruits as Savannah Chrisley says she doesn’t perceive her “half the time,” and one other pokes enjoyable at her for “mumbling round.” Plus, when she gives assist throughout the group’s first activity — which includes submerging in freezing water and reciting mnemonics — they yell at her to get out.
“People need to underestimate me on a regular basis. They say, ‘She’s tousled,’ or, ‘She’s weak.’ And I’m not. I’m stronger than individuals assume,” Reid says in her confessional, earlier than failing the duty herself.
However, the star’s mindset takes a fast flip when they’re required to hold heavy backpacks.
“Can I get by way of the choice with out operating? How far will I am going?” she provides. “The problem is about me and my demons. There’s nonetheless an actual rawness inside me that I would like to interrupt free and never be scared. But in the event you reduce me, I bleed. I’m nonetheless human.”
Before going to the subsequent impediment, Reid decides handy over her armband and name it quits as soon as and for all, making her the primary particular person to go dwelling in Season 2. Later on within the episode, Blac Chyna and Dez Bryant turn out to be the second and third to bid farewell to their coaching.
“I’ve to say one thing,” Reid tells the workers. “The bag is so heavy. I can’t do it. My again’s killing me. It must be per weight per particular person. It’s not truthful and I’m actually in ache and it’s like, nobody cares. This factor is a monster on my again. I don’t need to do it anymore.”
As a lot as I might’ve favored to see her pull by way of and win, I give her kudos for making an attempt!
