I had the privilege to have a quick sit down with Zander Donavan. He had to get to a race so we didn’t have much time to chat but he found a few minutes for me. Here’s what he had to say…

Pretty Mess: First, I want to thank you for taking the time out to meet with me today. 

Zander: Thank you for having me.

PM: Let’s get messy…

Z: Hahahahaha, ok then.

PM: How is the family and how is Getty fitting in?

Z: Everyone is good. Rylee has really taking to Getty, she’s happy to have another woman around instead of just us boys. But really, they all love her. Colton wanted me to say hi to you and ask you not to be too hard on me.

PM: Colton really asked me to go easy on you? I find that hard to believe.

Z: He didn’t. I was testing you to see if it would work.

PM: It didn’t. Since you tried to trick me, I going to get super messy here. Why in the hell did you put yourself in the position to have some race bunny take a naked selfie with you?

Z: I wasn’t naked and neither was she – more like, not completely clothed. You’re right about putting myself in that situation. It was an error on my part that almost cost me the best thing in my life, Getty. I’m young and sometimes a bit dumb. I got caught up in the night and excitement of being back on the track and drank way too much. All I can say is that I had too many drinks and no common sense. I won’t make that mistake again.

PM: When you got back to the island after the picture was posted on Instagram, how did you think Getty would react?

Z: At the time, I had no idea the picture was out. So when I went back I didn’t have a damn clue what was going on and once I did, I was in shock. I couldn’t be mad at Getty for wanting nothing to do with me. I couldn’t remember what happened at the hotel but I knew I didn’t fuck that chick. I wished Getty would have talked to me sooner but I couldn’t blame her for wanting to. 

PM: Getty seemed to make an impression on you when you first met her. Tell me about it.

Z: Those damn socks! Who would have know mismatched, knee high socks could be so fucking sexy?! But I’m no saint, which meant there was no way in hell that my eyes didn’t travel up her body. And, damn, what a sexy body it was – still is. When I got to her face, I knew I was a goner. She was the most beautiful woman I had ever seen in my life. Her eyes were beautiful but sad. All I could think about was how to bring those eyes back to life. #justjump

PM: What is it about Getty that makes you know she’s the one?

Z: She brought me back to life. She makes me live. She makes me feel. She makes me laugh. She makes me want tomorrows and sunsets and forevers when I never even thought twice about any of those things before. I want to grow old on the island we feel love at, together.

PM: You’re so cheesy, Zander. But I love you anyways.

Z: Thanks…I think. I love you too.

PM: What advice would you give someone if they are trying to win back the love and trust of someone important to them?

Z: Have patience. But not too much. When there’s something you want, go after it. But if there’s something worth your while that you want bad enough, be patient.

PM: It’s always a pleasure seeing you and I hope we can catch sometime soon. I know you have to get to your race. Best of luck! Maybe I can stop by for Sunday dinner.

Z: Rylee would love that. It was great speaking with you too……………………………… Getty, I’ll see you at the finish line. I’ll be the first one, so look out for me. Love you!

PM: You just had to throw that in there.

Z: (winks)
