Windecher may be a criminal defense attorney today, but, growing up, he had it rough and said that he joined a gang in order to survive. He also said that he was arrested 13 times, so he’s familiar with police. Windecher admitted that, though he was arrested 13 times, he got away with a lot more than he was actually caught doing. Upon meeting girlfriend Cox, she said that telling her he used to be in a gang was one of the first things he told her.

Cox and Windecher were only allowed to tell a couple close loved ones about their participation on the show and they had to give up their cell phones for the month-long experience. In addition, Cox said that:

We couldn’t pre-plan, or pre-pack. I don’t think you can really prepare yourself for this.’ You’re overwhelmed, and excited, and scared.’ You have to look over your shoulder every second of every day.
