Mercedes: I was a little disappointed. The show was a part of my life for six years, so to have that taken away was kind of a bummer.

Mercedes: I just found out that James is 41. I had no idea! I was like 17 when we started fooling around on the show. Jailbait!
Mercedes: It's funny. My real name sounds like a stripper name, too. But, that's what I was given at birth. I always asked my mom why and she would say, "Oh, it's because I really liked it." But I'm convinced it's because they had a Mercedes when I was born and that I was conceived in it.
