Following the first elimination of LEGO MASTERS USA, Brick Fanatics speaks to one of the contestants who was sent home
Last night’s episode of LEGO MASTERS USA saw Jessie and Kara sent home from the brick building contest, marking the first elimination of the series. The Space Smash challenge asked the builders to construct a space themed model that could be destroyed, but unfortunately Jessie and Kara’s space station started to fall apart before the demolition even began.
Brick Fanatics asked Jessie about her experience on the show to find out what competing in LEGO MASTERS meant to her.
Were you confident going into the LEGO MASTERS auditions?
Jessie: I was so not confident going into audition, so I went with the attitude to have a lot of fun!
How did you prepare for the show?
Jessie: To prepare for the show I did several different varieties of builds with all kinds of LEGO pieces.
What was it like arriving in the build room for the first time?
Jessie: The build room was a LEGO dream come true. It was amazing.
What was the trickiest thing to adjust to when building competitively?
Jessie: Having a time limit made it more challenging.
Which was your favourite challenge?
Jessie: I enjoyed the Dream Park Theme Park.
What was the toughest challenge for you?
Jessie: The Space Smash challenge ended up being a tough challenge.
What was the best thing about participating in LEGO MASTERS?
Jessie: The best thing about participating was getting to know all the other teams. They are truly some of the most incredible people I’ve ever met – the casting for the show was amazing.
Did you learn anything new, about yourself or about LEGO creativity, through being a part of the show?
Jessie: I learned an entirely new level of creativity, having all of the bricks you could want with time and space to just build. I experienced wonderful new friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.
The next episode of LEGO MASTERS will air in FOX in the USA on Wednesday, February 19 at 9.00pm ET/10.00pm PT.
