Trista Rupp, or Twisted Trista as
Star 104 nicknamed her, has ended
her residency in Tinsel Town. Rupp
was the third contestant to get out of
the car, leaving Beetle Bob, the win

contestants who left early did not

as an all purpose vehicle.
Although Rupp had to withdraw
from classes, she says she is glad she
did the contest. She explained, “It
opened doors that otherwise would not
have been opened." When asked if she
was glad to be out she stated, “I’m

They all had the ability to adapt to
any situation.” Rupp still sees the
people she lived in the car with from
time to time. She still has to give Matt
his baseball cap and hairball. The
hairball that Rupp is referring to is a
tennis ball sized clump of hair she had
been collecting in the car. She plans
on shellacking it, covering it with
glitter, putting a hook in it and giv
ing it to him as a Christmas ornament.
As for the future, Rupp plans on
making her trip a family vacation
with her two children and her parents.
