Samie shared in the video that she auditioned a total of three times to get on the show. 

The reality tv star explained that on her first try, she did not get a callback or any update on her audition. She said that, “That’s another thing about the show, it’s a bit brutal. If you apply, you know that you are not getting on because you don’t hear a thing.”
