“In Season 4 the set looked like a North Korean prison, so for Season 5 I wanted it to look like Liberace’s Las Vegas mansion,” Andre tells Indiewire. “In Season 4 I lost weight, so in Season 5 I gained weight. Last season I got really pale and hairy, so this season I got rid of all my body hair except my eyebrows. I waxed my pubic hair, shaved my head bald and got rid of my facial hair. It was almost like a conceptual aesthetic choice. I didn’t know what it would all look like together and it ended up looking like Vin Diesel died and then hosted a talk show at Liberace’s….I went the opposite direction with the odor as well: This season I doused myself with cologne and Axe Body Spray. I got the cheapest, Kmart colognes and put them all over myself and around the desk to affect the guests. Honestly, it was more a prank on me after a while.” ALSO: Andre reflects on his three favorite jokes.
