This is INCREDIBLE!
One of our favorite FitPerez Contributors actually spent a bunch of time for a TV show to earn money for a charity. Unfortunate, the show wasn't a hit.
But, as it turns out — SHE WON ANYWAY! Which means her charity of choice, NOH8, ended up $60,000 richer!
Here's what Ajay Rochester had to say:
I’ve spent the last 5 months of my life living off lettuce leaves, throwing myself out of warplanes, doing all sorts of Amazing Race like challenges and chasing Kevin Federline half way around Australia. Sadly it was for a failed TV show called Excess Baggage but the one thing that kept me going was that my chosen charity was the NOH8 campaign and I knew that I if could win it they would be $50,000 richer and it could change many more people’s lives than my own.
As it turns out, I won the series (aired last week in Australia) and having won a challenge earlier in the series I can now proudly say that the NOH8 campaign is $60,000 richer for it. So even though it was not the hit I was hoping for, we can at least look forward to seeing how much of a difference it can make in us finally seeing a time when every person has the right to marry whoever it is they love.
We have always been proud to have you on our team, Ajay, and this is why!
