For Michael Costello, there was one big plus to returning to the work room at Parson’s: his BFF Mondo Guerra! They seemed to get off on the wrong foot, as most of the cast accused Michael of cheating and of lacking an ability to sew, but Mondo eventually befriended Michael despite their competitive critics and the BFFs are back as All Stars together.
“[Mondo] made it really easy to get through each challenge… sometimes you need the support of a best friend,” Michael said. He also reflected on the uphill battle of season eight. “You want to be there to win, but I wanted to be there to make friends along the way. But some people just didn’t want to make friends with me.”
No sleep aside, Michael enjoyed filming the All Stars season much more!
