ABTV Loves Camp Getaway: Glen North
On our AfterBuzz TV aftershow last night with Glen. It was pride weekend at camp and he is the only gay counselor so he shared what it was like setting up and how nervous he was for the weekend.
Glen North from Bravo’s Camp Getaway joined us on our Camp Getaway aftershow panel this week and just like on the show, he is super kind in real life! (or over zoom for the matter of fact). Our only issue with Glen was that he wasn’t wearing glitter. We have seen him strut his stuff and be the glitter god he is during the first few episodes of Camp Getaway, so maybe we were just too optimistic in thinking he was going to wear glitter to the panel. Maybe next time, though. However, Glen was super helpful in answering our burning questions in regards to all the drama going on this season! We were dying to know what it was like filming at camp and if the playboy of the season AdamMizrahi is really that bad! So let’s get into it!
Glen first dished on the gay pride festivities and all the planning he did going into it. He admitted he was super nervous going into the weekend and felt pressure to make sure everyone had a good time and that it was amazing. We assured him that it looked lit from the tv screen!
He got vulnerable with us and told us “it wasn’t until the pride parade that I settled in and what I’m doing is enough, me being here is enough, me being myself is enough”. I myself went to camp growing up and am very familiar with the camp culture on the east coast and I’ve never heard of any camp having a pride parade or just celebrating pride just in general. So Camp Getaway seems dope!
Glen also shared with us that any pride colors or flags on a straight person on the cast was his doing! He was the cheerleader for the weekend and got everyone in the pride spirit! Glen really wanted to show the gay kids watching who might be struggling at home how important it is to be authentic and true to yourself. He wanted to set an example for change and we appreciate him for that! Glen wished the stories of the guests visiting that weekend were shared but he is doing an instagram live later this week with one of the guests Dolores, so you guys should check it out!
However we couldn’t talk about rainbows and unicorns the whole time (literally), we needed to get his take on some of the drama that is happening this season. Specifically with Adam, who is not doing the best job one could say at being a social coordinator. Glen said that they learned very quickly what kind of “mentor” Adam was and that if he had any questions he knew to ask Monica; who was the other mentor of the group.
He also came to his friend Randall’s defense after from what looked like she blew her stand up on the episode. Glen said “I don’t think it was as bad as the show made it out to be”. I honestly think Randall is the funniest person on the show, so I had no doubt that her stand up was probably hilarious, but if you watched the episode then you know what I am talking about. Cringe. We also wanted to get into the competitive color war that happened on the episode and Glen jokingly said “Monica was cheating”! Obviously we know he’s just playing around and that’s how you know camp is fun…when it gets so competitive! We’re going to have to ask Monica to come on the show next week to hear her side of this!
Glen also told us the story about how he started working at this camp and that when they initially asked him to join he felt “when they said I would be a camp counselor at an adult summer camp, I was born to do that, that’s so me”. He also shared that he wanted to do something different that he’s never done before, and escape the crazy life of New York City for some summer fun.
You guys can catch new episodes of Camp Getaway on Monday nights at 10pm on Bravo and our aftershow on afterbuzz where we break down each episode on Tuesdays at 6pm pst. We love having the counselors from the show come on with us and share the behind the scenes of the episodes and we for sure have more guests coming on soon!
