Reginald McKinley and Colia McKinley
Mother and Son Winners
Why did you want to be on Fear Factor?
Reginald: Honestly, I saw this as something to do and really never thought anything of it. One night I was looking for modeling work and ran across this opportunity and just said "hey, why not submit something!!"
Colia: I was on Fear Factor because my son had confidence that I could do it. I really thank God for Reginald having confidence in me. Thank you, Reginald, and I love and appreciate you!!
What was the toughest stunt and why?
Reginald: The kitchen stunt was the hardest stunt, due to me being a clean freak and the overall "foulness" of the stunt.
Colia: The kitchen stunt was the hardest because it required a lot of elements to complete one stunt, which were all equally disgusting.
Who annoyed you the most and why?
Reginald: Rob. No competition.
He was an ignorant kid, who was comfortable in his ignorance.
Colia: Joanna and Robert annoyed me the most, for several reasons. To name a few: they were ignorant, disrespectful, and lacked sportsmanship. To highlight the lack of sportsmanship as a small testament to the immoral set of this team; you can look at when they were pompous and intolerable as the winning team but the true "Rob and Joanna" came out in their lose. "You will be tested and judged, not by your triumphs, but by your response and character during trials." Had Joanna and Rob lived by this quote, then the producers of the show, other contestants, and the world wouldn't have had the opportunity to observe the unstable state of Rob and blatant disrespect of Joanna, which was brought upon by simply losing a stunt.
How will you spend the cash?
Reginald: Investments. Investments. Investments. My main focus is building an extraordinary financial portfolio. So, I am currently accepting applications for business partners.
Colia: Invest the money.
Were you surprised at how tough your mom was during competition or did you know she'd rise to the challenges?
Reginald: My mother is the champion of the little man (or woman) and the ruler of her fate. I knew, that if only she had the chance, that her ability to strategize and execute would prevail over all. My mother has exuded an aura of superior strength since she was young and, finally, she is allowing the world to experience all that she has to offer- internally, externally, mentally, physically, spiritually, and professionally. Thank you mom, for being the gatekeeper for my destiny and holding true to your promise to God to raise me into a prolific young man. I, now, have to take the reins of my existence and I implore you to allow me to take you to the stars and above as I "build a dynasty and live my destiny!"
Did the competition bring you and Reginald closer together?
Colia: Yes, my son and I have another level of friendship and open communication. He inspired me to do something that I wouldn't have imagined to do and I have another level of love that I didn't know it was possible to have.
Did either of you ever consider quitting during the "kitchen" stunt with the hair clog and the rotten milk? What part of that stunt was the toughest for you both?
Reginald: No. I don't quit. The toughest part of the stunt for my mother was the sink and the toughest part for me was the snake pantry.
Colia: Yes. I considered quitting the stunt because I couldn't locate the key. Due to the encouragement of Reginald and Joe, I was able to go through it and finish the stunt.
What's the truth behind your riff with Rob & Joanna? Why the bad vibes?
Reginald: "Ignorance is not always bliss"....and when you are stuck around people of such uncouth behavior for extended periods of time, especially when you are persons of a tranquil and meditative manner, cumbersome distaste is the byproduct.
Colia: The riff with Joanna was the lack of responsibility when it came to parenting, such as she didn't teach him respect, morals, or values for himself or others. So Joanna, from a mother to a mother, there is a time when you have to give your son the tools to make the right decisions, in or outside of your presence. This will allow him to be an attribute to society, so right now, Joanna, you need to be Robert's parent and a friendship will come later.
