“The thing is when they first started filming, I didn’t realize the extreme of how much I was going to be filmed,” she told TV Guide ahead of season 2’s premiere. “It wasn’t necessarily a bad thing. It was definitely exciting. They wanted me telling my story, so I was going to tell it. … That was my goal going into the whole series. If they really wanted me to show my true self, I was going to show them my true self.”

The show’s sophomore season showed the intense rivalry between Navarro and Trinity Valley Community College, both of which are located in Texas. When asked whether she felt like people were “rooting against” her team after their major winning streak, Brum said she didn’t pay attention to the haters.

“At the end of the day, those people are what make you better, the ones who don’t want you to succeed. You want to be successful that much more [because of them],” she told the outlet. “If we sit here and we focus on the people who don’t want us to succeed and we’re like, ‘Why don’t they love us? Why don’t they want us to win?’ Then it’s just tearing ourselves down. If you don’t want me to do great, watch me. That’s the mindset that we were trying to have going into it.”
