Episode 4: The $100,000 Giveaway
The primary reason for Kim's elimination was because she couldn't give much after she got lost driving…again. "If I had known I'd have to drive at all, I might not have auditioned. I'm a terrible driver, and I'm not good with directions," she says. "I wish I could have hired a chauffeur!"
Kim says she didn't get a GPS unit for her car because she felt like it was outside of the rules of the game. "Part of the challenge was to find your way around in a city you didn't know," she says. "For me, it was like facing a demon, and I survived that. I feel pretty good about it even though I didn't give as much as I would have liked."
After her time as a Big Giver, Kim says she's no longer the thoughtless, self-centered person she once was. "My life has been changed forever. Now I don't worry as much about what to wear. I worry more about living in the moment," she says. "I'm volunteering, and I've really gotten involved. My new favorite hobby is spending time with children and mentoring."
