It’s been a long road the contests on The Glee Project have traveled to get to the finals. Now, the final four contestants Alex Newell, Damian McGinty Jr., Lindsay Pearce, and Samuel Larsen are all hoping to win the competition and land a guest starring role on FOX’s hit TV show Glee. Samuel shares his memories from The Glee Project and talks about his newfound fans.
What is your most memorable moment from the show?
Singing and making the video for “Don’t You Want Me” with Marissa.
What was the most important thing you have learned on The Glee Project?
I think what I learned the most is to be yourself and not worry so much what people think; don’t try to please people all the time just be yourself but be the best you, you can be.
If you could create your own dream Glee character for yourself, who would it be?
Every high school has that guy that’s the singer in a rock band and I would be that singer but maybe my band breaks up or something and I need a place to sing so I join New Directions or something along those lines.
What’s been the hardest moment on The Glee Project for you that you had to push through to continue in the competition?
I think my hardest moment was on last night’s episode being told that I wasn’t vulnerable enough and wasn’t authentic. Finding out that–what I thought was a good quality in me, which was to fight through and not show weakness–was actually the complete opposite that Ryan wanted. It being so late in the competition, I’m not sure if I have enough time to prove him the opposite.
What has been the reaction from fans?
Amazing! It’s cool to see the actual fans of Glee embrace us this way and treat us like we are an actual cast member it’s really cool.
What was the best advice you received on the show?
The best I’ve ever gotten was stop thinking period.
How has it been to meet the creators, writers, and actors from Glee and perform for them?
Cool, it’s really cool.
After watching the episode, was there anything that surprised you?
I was shocked to hear that Ian Brennan’s (Glee Co-creator and writer) first impression of me was that he wasn’t sure how authentic I was. It’s good that I know it and that they were honest about it but I didn’t know that.
You have gone through a lot professionally and personally on the show–how accurately were you portrayed?
I think one thing that needs to be kept in mind is that we were under a high amount of stress and a lot is expected of us so just anything we say, anything we do that gets on camera a lot of the time might not be 100 percent true to who we are in real life just because of the stress we’ve been under but I think they’re doing their best.
What is it really like to be slushied?
I love it!
