Miesha Tate Won’t Be Recommending Participating In Big Brother
Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate has stated that the experience at reality TV show Celebrity Big Brother wasn’t very encouraging and it won’t be something that she would be recommending to her fellow athletes.
Tate is known for the championship glory she achieved under both the UFC and Strikeforce banners. However, she swapped the octagon for the Celebrity Big Brother house earlier on in 2022.
In this reality show, the 35-year-old knocked out 10 other notable celebrities to be crowned victorious in the third season, taking home the prize money of $250,000. As she prepares for her return to the MMA, the American says that she won’t look back at her reality show experience with fond memories.
“I didn’t enjoy it very much, I’ll be honest,” Tate said.
“I enjoyed the challenge, and I am definitely a glutton for punishment, but that was extreme, because it was an entire month of isolation. We didn’t go outside at all for the entire month. My circadian rhythm is important to me. I go out every morning, I get sun exposure, and I go to sleep at the same time. It’s very important to me,”.
“We were doing interviews all hours of the night under the bright halogen lights. So bad for you. It was just so different from what I’m used to. I’m an athlete and my body is my business. I really do invest in those small things,” Tate continued. “Me having disruption, not being able to plan my workouts. It was not an ideal experience. I only think it was worth it because I won.”
